American Idol

So, all along I wanted Danny to win. Since that ended up not being an option, I wanted Kris to be the new American Idol - but really, I just knew that Adam was going get all the votes. When Kris ended up winning, I was happy-sad. And yes, that is an emotion.

This is going to upset some Braves fans (I love the Braves, so don't be gettin' all crazy on me yet), but I remember when they won the World Series. My whole family was piled on my parents' bed, we got to stay up late, watch the game, and be cool. Well, we freaked out when the Braves won, but even then I can remember the camera showing the other team and I felt so happy-sad. I hated seeing the other team so crushed and let down.

Anyways, I'm happy for Kris.

But, I'm sad for Adam.

I am happy-sad. The End.

After this post, I totally understand if you won't be able read this blog again. I am ridiculous.

Truck Woes

In case you did not know, Zach sold his beloved truck while he was deployed last year. With that money, we bought the car I drive now and Zach drives my awesome Civic. Everything sounds normal, right? Wrong. Zach is not quite complete without a truck. I am reminded of this everyday.

While we were out driving today we passed a huge farm-tractor-farm-tilling thing. Zach waved to him. The farmer did not wave back. (He did not even look friendly.) Zach's explanation of the incident: "If I had a truck, he would have waved back. Ugh, because we are in a car he ignored us."

And so, I'd like to share with you reason #234 why Zach needs a truck:

People driving farm equipment will wave back.
