Well, I am going to IRON MAIDEN in May. I used to be headbanger back in the day (junior high), and I have always had a hankering to go to a heavy metal concert. I almost bought tickets to Motley Crue a couple years ago, but just couldn't bring myself to do it. I was a little disturbed with some of the expected goings on at their concerts. They are pretty wild, from what I hear. I couldn't pass up IM, however, because I figure this is it for me. It will be pathetic enough to be at this concert in my late 30s, so I can't wait for another concert. I really liked their music back in my youth, still rock out to them, and understand their concerts are great. What is really pathetic is the thought of these guys, who must be in their late 40s or even 50s, squeezing into tight pants and strutting around. I think it will be really cool. Rush is coming to town soon, but IM was a bigger part of my music collection. I would love to see Rush, too, but can only afford one concert at this time. I wish I still had my spikes. I'm going with a couple buddies, so it should be fun.

I told my mom I was going to IM and I think she had a bad flashback of 1984. She just rolled her eyes and didn't really comment. Anyone who knows my mom, knows that if she isn't commenting, she must really be baffled.

Thought I would brag up Liz. She has been exercising regularly, and eating heathier. It has definitely paid off as she is looking amazing. She has more energy and is quite a bit happier. I can't seem to keep my hands off her. Unfortunately, she has no problem keeping hers off me.

Tyler is a way cool kid. He talks in this "teenager" voice that is a crack-up. He will get all serious and act grown up and tell a story. It's pretty funny. He has started T-ball games now, and that is fun. He is getting big, which is so fun, but also bittersweet since you only have those times once.

What can I say about the Princess of the World? How cute is this kid? She is a total Daddy's girl which pretty much means she runs my life. She is very fun, very sweet and seems to win everyone over who meets her. She already has a bit of an attitude, a sense of humor and is the only other one, besides Liz, who likes the dog. She is not afraid of the mongrel at all. Tyler, on the hand, won't even go from the back door to the trampoline without someone holding the crazy mutt.

Is it any wonder that the Dems use a jackass as their mascot?

The scariest woman on planet Earth. No make that the scariest woman in the entire universe.

Give me a break. This guy is a fraud. An empty suit. Pretty words, but no substance.
