Week of Awesome

11 Nov

This week has been a bit more interesting than usual. In fact, there were so many things that I wanted to write about that I couldn’t choose which one to write about first. Unfortunately, my indecision resulted in my writing absolutely nothing- which is just downright ridiculous.  So I’ve decided to summarize this week and all of its highlights into one mildly precarious post. (You have been warned.)

First Awesome Highlight of the Week: Conan O’Brien is back! I love this man, freckles and all. As I’m sure many of you already know, Conan was booted from NBC when Jay Leno wanted “The Tonight Show” back. So, yada…yada…yada… 9 months later Conan O’Brien is now on TBS with his new show that is ingenuously named “Conan”. The fourth episode will air tonight and should be as outstanding as the last 3 episodes have been. My favorite quote from Conan so far is: “Thank you and welcome to my second annual first show.” Conan’s humor isn’t for everyone, but I highly suggest checking him out if you’ve never done so. My life could easily be broken up into two parts: Pre Conan O’Brian and Post Conan O’Brien.

Second Awesome Highlight of the Week: The 43rd President of the United States, George W. Bush is back! (Well, sort of). I love this man, stammered sentences and all. President Bush is out and about these days promoting his new book, Decision Points. The book is about the many difficult decisions he has had to make in his life, including his time as president. I have not read this book yet, (but I will soon) so I can’t comment or cite specifically from it, but I’ve been watching his interviews on TV. I’ve especially enjoyed his interviews with Matt Lauer. I know that President Bush is a person of great debate in this country and though I do not wish to spark a debate on this blog I cannot not say this: I have full admiration and respect for President George W. Bush and I am really looking forward to reading his book.

Third Awesome Highlight of the Week: My construction contract has officially broke ground. My husband and I are the proud new owners of a giant hole in North Milwaukee. I had been in disbelief that all of this is really happening until I went to visit the construction site. And there it was… a giant, rock filled hole- that will soon be my basement. Besides that, there wasn’t much else to look at, but it is still super exciting! And of course- I’ll keep posting as the project progresses.

Well, ladies and gents, that’s it. Have a good one. I know I have!

    Gotta love that GW is back! He was an amazing President with more to handle than most people know. GW should be given much credit for bringing stability to this country in trying times. So many people want to crucify political figures, but I would challenge them to spend a day in their shoes. It’s not easy leading a country, state or city when you have everyone second guessing you. As far as Conan–he should have kicked Jay Leno’s fat ass!

      I knew you were a GWB fan, but not a Conan fan… LOVE IT! Thanks for reading Roberto! Give the family a squeeze from Aunt Flea.
