In a better mood today!
Sorry about the rant yesterday. I had intended to blog about something entirely different, but as I watched GMA, I just couldn't help myself. My apoligies if it made you all depressed. That was never my intention for this thing. I just had to vent!
Onwards and upwards. Jon now knows where we are going tonight. He's not exactly happy about it. ( I think he was hoping for a different band) but he didn't say no way. So I'm gonna try and make this as easy for him as possible. Which means that I won't be able to hang around the buses, and do all that stuff that is "our" norm at a DL concert. I'll probably have to take him to the casino after the show, kind of a trade off if you will. He enjoys gambling ( though we don't do it often). I can't win to save my soul, so I just don't.
Mom will be over today to stay the night and watch the kids. So I will have to do my cleaning this morning. I'm sure you all know that having your mom over requires more effort in that department than the "normal" visitor. 'Cause it's your mom. And she knows- all your stuff. Like how you forget to dust the tops of the picture frames. Or your secret hiding spots where all the "junk" goes. Even if she's never lived in your house, she will find them. She's your mom after all. So I will have to make sure that every "dust bunny" has been banished, before I can leave and know that I won't get "that look" when I return. And I want to get ahead of the game on things, so that I can just relax on Sunday.
So I'd better get cracking. I'll be back tomorrow ( or Sunday) and let you all know how the show was. It's sold out, and there's no word on an opening act. So it should be "pure Def Leppard". I just hope Hubby can handle it- I know I will!
And now, your Friday Funny!
It was the first day of school and a new student named Pedro Martinez,
the son of a Mexican restaurateur, entered the fourth grade.
The teacher said,"Let's begin today by reviewing some American history.
"Who said 'Give me Liberty, or give me Death?'?"
She saw a sea of blank faces, except for Pedro,
who had his hand up
."Patrick Henry, 1775."
"Very good!" apprised the teacher. "Now, who said, "Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth?"
Again, no response except from Pedro:
"Abraham Lincoln, 1863."
The teacher snapped at the class,
"Class, you should be ashamed! Pedro, who is new to our country, knows more about its history than you do!"
She heard a loud whisper: "Screw the Mexicans!"
"Who said that?" she demanded.
Pedro threw up his hand.
"Jim Bowie, 1836."
At that point, a student in the back said, "I think I'm gonna puke."
The teacher glared and asked, "All right! Now, who said that?"
Again, Pedro replyed,
"George Bush I, to the Japanese Prime Minister, 1991."
Now furious, another student yelled, "Oh yeah? Suck this!"
Pedro jumped out of his chair waving his hand and shouting to the teacher,
"Bill Clinton to Monica Lewinsky, 1997!"
Now, with almost mob hysteria, someone said,
"You little shit. If you say anything else, I'll kill you!"
Pedro frantically yelled at the top of his voice,
"Gary Condit to Chandra Levy, 2001."
The teacher fainted, and as the class gathered around her lying on the floor, someone said,
"Oh shit, we're in BIG trouble now!"
"Saddam Hussein, 2003"
Love, Peace and Leppard to all! KC- who's gonna "GET ROCKED" tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
