Dah, dah, dah... ...

This will be a r.a.n.d.o.m. post.

First on the list: I like country music. This morning I heard a song by Brad Paisley called "I'm Still a Guy." (Apparently it's an old song, but I don't care.) Too funny and totally cute! I think that's why I like about country music. Songs can be funny, sad, goofy, sappy, heart felt... anything! Here are the lyrics:

When you see a deer you see Bambi
And I see antlers up on the wall
When you see a lake you think picnic
And I see a large mouth up under that log

You're probably thinking that you're going to change me
In some ways well maybe you might
Scrub me down, dress me up but no matter what
I'm still a guy

When you see a priceless French painting
I see a drunk, naked girl
You think that riding a wild bull sounds crazy
And I'd like to give it a whirl

Well love makes a man do some things he ain't proud of
And in a weak moment I might
Walk your sissy dog, hold your purse at the mall
But remember, I'm still a guy

I'll pour out my heart
Hold your hand in the car
Write a love song that makes you cry
Then turn right around knock some jerk to the ground
'Cause he copped a feel as you walked by

I can hear you now talking to your friends
Saying, "Yeah girls he's come a long way"
From dragging his knuckles and carrying a club
And building a fire in a cave

But when you say a back rub means only a back rub
Then you swat my hand when I try
Well, what can I say at the end of the day
Honey, I'm still a guy

I'll pour out my heart
Hold your hand in the car
Write a love song that makes you cry
Then turn right around knock some jerk to the ground
'Cause he copped a feel as you walked by

These days there's dudes getting facials
Manicured, waxed and botoxed
With deep spray-on tans and creamy lotiony hands
You can't grip a tackle box

With all of these men lining up to get neutered
It's hip now to be feminized
I don't highlight my hair
I've still got a pair
Yeah honey, I'm still a guy

Oh my eyebrows ain't plucked
There's a gun in my truck
Oh thank God, I'm still a guy

Continued from my like of country music, has anyone else listened to the new Rascal Flatts album. It's awesome. I'm a HUGE Rascal Flatts fan, and I especially love this song. It's sad, but it hits home. It's called Why:

It must a been a place so dark, couldn't feel the light
Reachin' for you through that stormy cloud
Now here we are gathered in our little home town
This can't be the way you meant to draw a crowd

Oh why that's what I keep askin'
Was there anything I could have said or done
Oh I, had no clue you were masking, a troubled soul, God only knows
What went wrong, and why you'd leave the stage in the middle of a song

Now in my mind I keep you frozen as a seventeen year old
Rounding third to score the winning run
You always played with passion, no matter what the game
When you took the stage you shined just like the sun

Oh why that's what I keep askin'
Was there anything I could have said or done
Oh I, had no clue you were masking, a troubled soul, oh God only knows
What went wrong, and why you'd leave the stage in the middle of a song

Now the oak trees are swayin' in the early autumn breeze
The golden sun is shining on my face
The tangled thoughts I hear a mockingbird sing
This old world really ain't that bad a place

Oh why, there's no comprehending
And who am I to try to judge or explain
Oh but I, do have one burning question
Who told you life, wasn't worth the fight
They were wrong
They lied
Now you're gone
And we cried

Cause it's not like you, to walk away, in the middle of a song

Your beautiful song
Your absolutely beautiful song

Secondly, does anyone else out there believe in pheromones? I'll tell you, G seems more attracted to me, and I tend to get more compliments from males during my days of ovulation. It's weird!

Next, I have noticed that when I wear heels, I walk so much slower! Is this because the step is shorter because of the heel being elevated? It's SO frustrating!

Another random - I LOVE Ann Taylor Loft's clothes. Someone please gift me a gift cert. so I can stop my brains out at the store... pretty please?!

Oh! G and I planted some items in our garden last night! We planted strawberries, cherry tomatoes, big tomatoes, red peppers, green peppers, oregano, chives, mint, and red onions. We're still debating what else we'd like to put there. We have quite a bit of space for a garden... so we have quite a few options. Some other things we're considering are cucumbers, blackberries, and some more herbs! I also think we're going to put a (small) lime plant out on the front porch by the door, as well as a couple hanging baskets with some geraniums. We're also going to put some bulbed flowers (Lilys, Tulips, and Daffodils) in the planter boxes. I love it!

I have to add how impressed I am with G. He is such a handy person! He has fixed our (old) washer AND dryer (he replaced the belt and the heating element). He took off the old exhaust system on his car and installed the new one. He has fixed multiple things on my beater Jeep. He can fix any computer problem. He can wire anything. And now, he's good at working in the yard. His skills are impressive! There really isn't anything he can't do and I'm glad to say that unless our toilet explodes all over the bathroom, we won't ever have to call for outside help! :) I'm lucky.

Well, that's all the randomness I have for now.... maybe I'll think of something to add later!

Dude, if you like "I'm Still a Guy," you HAVE to check out "Online" by Brad. SO FUNNY!

I think the only thing G can't do is be a husband! Tell him to take off his tool belt and get down on one knee already!

about the country songs... I just fell in love with you a little bit more! :)
