On the satellite radio show that I sometimes listen to on my way home from work, the women were talking about how Dennis Rodman is "selling himself" on Ebay or Craig's List for $7500.00 for an evening. Then they posed the question to each other - who would you pay $7500.00 to spend an evening with. They also said it had to be someone currently living. So the question now is...who would you pick?

I was online this morning and found out that stop number eight on the 2007 PBR Built Ford Tough Series has been dubbed the "Dale Jr PBR Clash". That's right, my favorite cowboy (Justin McBride) could possibly win the inaugural "Dale Jr PBR Clash" title. What a sweet combo - two of my Top 5 together. Now all I need to do is come up with an excuse to be in Charlotte the weekend of January 26th thru 28th!!!

We are training someone new at my job...she's 42...and unlike "young people" now-a-days she's a real go getter. So much so that you can't even get to your desk in the morning and turn on your computer without her asking if there's anything she can do for you. While I value her drive we're really just not that high energy around here. As crazy as it sounds I've become accustomed to a certain amount of down time in my day. It affords me the luxury of emailing friends, posting on my blog, watching episodes of TV shows that I've missed...you name it. I know I'm supposed to be highly motivated and driven but after eight years I've learned how to take care of the customers as well as myself. I appreciate the cake-walk that is my job most days and it never seems more evident of just how nice I have it until we're training someone new and there isn't much for them to do. At least it seems management hasn't picked up on it yet. Though I think they're just as into free-cell and solitare as I am into Pop Candy and Blogger. I just don't want the apple cart upset that's all, is that too much to ask?

Friday night was a big night for me. I got to meet one of my "Top 5"...you know one of the guys I could sleep with if the opportunity arose and it would be like a free pass. According to the rules...reiterated to me by my ween...I need to make the list public. So you will now all be privy to my Number 3 - JUSTIN MCBRIDE. Friday night was my first time watching bull riding live up at the Sovereign Center in Reading. After all 45 guys rode their bulls and most of the spectators left I noticed people gathering at the rail. To my delight - the cowboys came out and went around the ring signing autographs. I grabbed my program and quickly took my place next to the veteran's of this kind of thing. While I waited patiently to see if Justin McBride would come out I got to look at scads of cute cowboys. Finally as the fervor drew to an end - he appeared. The reigning world champion of the PBR - all 5'9" 155 pounds of him. He stopped and signed the program of the lady next to me. Then she noticed he was wearing his World Champion belt buckle so she asked to see it and when he lifted his shirt - she uttered that it was beautiful. Once that exchange was over he moved on to me. I had my program open to his special page - he signed it and I asked if I could shake his hand. He smiled sweetly and said "sure". So I did. Then he moved on to the twelve year old girl next to me. I feel I had good positioning between the lady in her 50's and the pre-teen girl. No big busted hussy's in sight to distract the cowboys. It was so way cool!!! One down four to go.
