One of my Program Directors is tuned into the fact that I'm a Queens of the Stone Age junkie. He always forwards any information he gets to me knowing how much joy it gives me. Honestly, every time this band receives an accolade I cheer like most do for their favorite football team. Ever since my husband turned me onto them in 2005 I've been hooked on Josh Homme's multi-musicianship and outstanding lyrical content. I had no idea he'd been writing the soundtrack to my life before that including all the the pending ups and downs of falling in love with the love of your life while still trying to figure out who exactly I am. When I received the email today telling me they had been nominated for two grammy awards, my heart skipped a beat. They've been nominated for Best Rock Performance for their song "My God Is the Sun" from their album "...Like Clockwork" which is also nominated for Best Rock Album alongside Black Sabbath (13), David Bowie (The Next Day) and Led Zeppelin (Celebration Day). This year I will be watching the Grammy Awards just to see if I've been right for the past 10 years of my adoration...Joshua Michael Homme III is a rock genius. Good luck guys, enjoy the company you keep, that alone speaks volumes.
This toddler is amazing! I think we have a future basketball superstar, but thanks to youtube, he already is!
He picks up what he thinks is Grape Nuts off the floor and EATS IT! He soon finds out that it was actually cat vomit from his shoe. What follows is TV magic.

Barbie was my first obsession. I used to collect cans for recycling money so I could buy the latest fashion doll. Escaping into the make believe of the blonde haired blue eyed diva was how I dealt with not fitting in and Barbie always accepted me even if I didn't have a cool pink Corvette like her's because well, I pushed her around; and she forgave me for the things I made her do with Ken, but that's another story...
Thing is, from the age of eight to 12 I asked for a Barbie Dreamhouse, but each year no huge box with that dream inside appeared under the tree. Santa always made sure that I had a wonderful Christmas and I am so grateful for that. On the Christmas of my twelf year though, I saw a giant box under that tree with my name on it and my heart almost lept from my chest. I just knew that in that box was my dreamhouse, so I saved that gift to open last. My parents kept asking me if I wanted to open it yet and I did, but I knew it was going to be awesome so I waited until it was the only one left. I remember my heart pounding as I tore into the paper expecting to see that familiar Barbie logo, but that logo was not on the box. It took a moment to process what was in there, but as my eyes observed the photo and wording I forgot my original dream and another one was realized, Santa brought me a complete stereo system with speakers, cassette, AM/FM and a record player. Dreams of escaping with Barbie turned to dreams where I was now the star. My afternoons and evenings from then on out were spent mostly in my room listening and dreaming of what life was like from the point of view of the artists I was listening to. Instead of Barbie stuff, my aluminum can money now went towards compilation records "Available NOW on K-Tel Records and Tapes".
All my Barbies were given away a couple years ago when I just didn't have room to hang onto them any longer, but I still have every record I ever bought or won from a radio station. My love for music eventually lead to a desire to learn to play guitar to back up a voice I discoverd along the way and eventually to a career that has been more fulfilling than any dream Barbie ever dreamed for me. She still holds a very special place in my heart, but that Barbie Dreamhouse truly was the best gift, I never got.
