Photos of the Week

Time seriously moves faster for, ummm...the "weekly" timing of the photos is more like 10-14 days. I guess that's more like a dog-week, right? Ahem. Anyway, this week's photo is posted, as well as several previous weeks, too.

It *should be* warmer.

We've had a cooler than normal Spring here in the upper part of Utah. It's been delightful and due to the abundance of rain, too, it's quite green. Typically the green of the grasslands are already starting to turn brown by now. Despite the beauty of the weather, I feel the need to complain about the weather forecasts. Time and time again, the weather forecasts will state, "we SHOULD BE 80 today." Accent mine on the "should be". There is no SHOULD BE in weather. There are averages and typicals, but there isn't a SHOULD BE. UGH. It chaps my hide! "The average is around 80," or "typically we are at 80" -- both have the same amount of words but mean so much different than "SHOULD BE". It's especially annoying when you realize that there are only 100 or so years recorded when figuring out the averages they use. It's a miniscule sample of years when you think of how old the Earth really is. Who's to say what SHOULD BE the temperature today? I seriously need a mocha...

Worshipping False Idols

I rarely see "famous" people, but I'm having a good run with American Idol celebs. First there was the spotting of Simon Cowell in Vegas in April. Tonight, there was cute little David Archuleta who walked in with a group of his friends while we were waiting for a table at Cafe Med in Salt Lake City. We made eye contact! Woot! (I'm sure there are millions of pre-teen girls who are SOOO jealous of me now! heheh.)

It was good to see him hanging out with normal kids on a Friday night. I always wonder if after appearing on shows like that they end up getting dragged into a world full of "handlers" and agents. It was good, too, that while he has a sizeable share of fame going on right now, especially in Utah, he was able to eat, talk and giggle with his friends without much interruption. When he was interrupted by a mom and an adoring fan, he was VERY gracious and accomodating. This photo was from that moment. We were tempted, but didn't tell him of the message from a girl in Colorado that we got for him. :-)

Maybe it's just me...

But at this stage of the political game, the "undecided" Democratic Superdelegates are just political superpussies. Pick your frickin' candidate already. Everyone else had to vote already...
