One Day In My Life


I know that parts of the country are drenched right now, but we've had little to no rain for months. I can't remember the last time we had a good rain. Maybe January? I can't be sure. While I took care of some errands this morning it rained big fat drops, and I actually turned on my windshield wipers. We're justthisclose to mandatory water conservation here, and those big fat drops were a welcomed sight. The little shower didn't last long enough. I hope we get more precipitation out of the now grey and ominous looking sky.

Other stuff...

Commercials. I'm gonna vent a little. I am glad that the horse racing season at Del Mar is for a relatively short time. Their commercial drives me nuts. More specifically, it's the song that accompanies the commercial that drives me nuts. It's in a faux simile style of Christina Aguilera about 5 or 6 years ago with all the jazzy ad-lib vocal runs. Maybe 5 years ago the commercial would have been more appropriate, but now it just gets on my nerves. I have to hit the mute button on our TV controller each time that particular commercial airs. For me, it's like nails on a chalk board. Next, is that they're taking songs I like and putting them on commercials. Sometimes that's OK, like the song Paradise by Ana Laan which is used in a Dove deodorant commercial, but when they chop the song to fit the commercial, then it ruins the song. I'm did like the song The Story by Brandi Carlile, but they're using that song in a car commercial, and they chopped the heck out of it. *sigh* I'm not liking that.

I haven't said hot yet. HOT!

Honestly, I'll be glad when Blog365 is over. I've missed a handful of days but I've stuck by daily posting. Once the year is up, that's it. No more daily posting. By the way, I won't be adhering to daily posting while on vacation. I might do a couple of posts, but it's vacation!!!

Yesterday's song:

Candlelight - Richard Eliot

I'm with you on this year's Del Mar ads. Lately I've seen a different version, so maybe lots of people complained.

We got exactly three drops of rain. Boo!

I said it before, and I'll say it again: Have a great vacation!!!

One of the good things about watching almost everything off the DVR is that I get to skip through the commercials.

I'm with ya about the rain. I don't think we got any yesterday in La Mesa (or I blinked and missed it). It sure is humid though...

Have a great time!

Have fun on your vacation!!! And I don't know how you keep up with daily blogging. That's a big commitment.

That commercial was getting on my nerves! Glad to hear they've edited it... Vacation was great!

AKA Alice,
We have the DVR thing, too. I never think to use it. You would think with all that humidity we'd get some rain out of those clouds!

We had fun! The daily blogging thing is over rated, which is why I often post pictures or meme's.
