1- We've come a long way baby
2- I like Andy.
I remember the first Karaoke Superstar Finals... at Wasaga Waterworld. Not ideal for a singing contest. Then last year it was at the Barrie Fair. Again a less than desirable venue for a singing contest. But then this year the finals were at the ultra-classy Orillia Opera House! Complete with professional stage lighting and a professional sound guy! It was just such a special night. I hope we do it up big-time again next year.
And Andy! I love the way he sings. He puts everything he's got into the song, and he rocks it out with a little growl at times. I was totally impressed by the guy. I'm glad he stepped up his game and brought the title home, because he's such a genuine, humble guy. Congrats Andy!

Here's a random thought to get you trough the week: "Drivers are safer when highways are dry, and highways are safer when drivers are dry."

I woke up and scanned the floor... nothing. No clothes, vomit or paper. I was a little hesitant to give praise though... Something didn't feel right. I saw your chewing something so I decided to investigate further. I picked her up and reached inside her mouth, what was this new found chew-toy? The answer made me cringe. It was a piece of my glasses! She had pulled them off my night-table and decided they'd be a good midnight snack. So half of my glasses was in her mouth, where was the rest? I looked in her bed and found the answer. She had broken/eaten/ruined my glasses! I was a little bit upset (as you might imagine) and so I put her in her crate. (More for her safety than for punishment). Will she ever behave? I think the obedience school decision was made for us this morning. Snax is going, and she's going to like it!

We started off with a Friday night matchup between the Indian and Yankees. The game was sold out and even the scalpers didn't have tickets. We weren't sure we were even going to see a game! We walked up to the box office window and it turns out they had just released some $10 tickets in the upper level. We jumped on them faster than a fat kid on candy. Later we overheard people around us paid $30 for their tickets from a scalper... We scored big time! The game was alright, the Yankees won and we almost witnessed a fight between an Indians and Yankees fan. After the game they had a jaw-dropping fireworks display. Now this was no ordinary fireworks show. It was over 25 minutes long, set to music, with fireworks coming from all directions. AMAZING! It was bigger than Canada Day fireworks here, and it wasn't even a special occasion. Super cool!
Saturday we set out for Detroit, with a quick stop in Toledo. We visited Fifth/Third Field, home of the Toledo Mudhens in hopes of an afternoon game. No such luck. So we made our way down the street to the Toledo science center. That was (surprisingly) a lot of fun. After the pit-stop in Toledo we made our way to the Motor-City. I was kinda iffy on parking my car downtown for 3-4 hours in Detroit, but we managed to find a "guarded" lot and made our way to Comerica Park. We got to the box office and we had 2 ticket options. General admission or "on-deck circle." We took the ones with seats, and made our way to the section assigned on our tickets. Turns out we were 6 rows behind home plate! I was on TV for the entire game! They wouldn't allow us to take pictures, wave or talk on our cell phones because they wanted everyone in the camera shot to look like they were paying close attention to the game... I still managed to sneak a couple pics here and there. They also had fireworks after the game (I don't know why) and they were also pretty sweet. The drive home was long (got home around 4am Sunday) but it was totally worth it! An absolutely amazing weekend!

Have you ever been on a ride (at Wonderland of Darien Lake) and felt like you were going to die? It's not uncommon for you to feel that way. It is, however, uncommon that you would actually die. Fatalities on amusement park rides are very low. That doesn't mean there aren't close calls though. Check out this video.
The worst part is the woman who keeps laughing at the kid... He almost falls out of the ride and she is busting a gut thinking it's the funniest thing in the world. The ride stops, the kid is in pain, and she keeps laughing. If I was that kid, as soon as they release my belt, I'm giving that woman a left hook to the jaw.
So if you're off to KingdomBound next week, go ahead and get on those rides. They are totally safe! ;-)
