Finally Legos Put To Good Use

I may be behind in seeing this… not sure if you have or not, but this was excellent!

I should say… My girls love the Lego Friends… and I love the Blues Brothers! Thats why I love this clip…

 

Sunday Evening Ache

For some of us, our jobs means we sit behind a desk, sit on a chair, stare at a monitor for 8-10 hours a day… I am one of those employees.

As you are at work tomorrow… and realizing your butt cheeks are now on hour 3 of being numb… sing yourself this song…

 

Sing it with me… Get Up Offa That Thing! ~ James Brown

The Greatest Show on Earth?

Ringling-Bros-Barnum-BaileyLast night we took our kids to the Circus. I am sure there are other circuses that travel around, but for me, there is only one circus… Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey. My wife and I are 34 years old and this was our first time going to the circus. I wouldn’t consider myself a circus kind of guy… I really wasn’t looking forward to this for a few different reasons…1) Its a Friday night 2) it was going to be a late night, and I bet the kids will be cranky in the morning 3) Traffic, had to deal with rush hour traffic going into the city, and 4) simply, its in the city. Call me a grump, but I just wasn’t wanting to spend my Friday night at the circus.

We took the kids to dinner, then I realized I forgot the tickets, luckily for me, (my wife would have been wanted for murder) the restaurant was only a couple miles from the house… Got the tickets and we were off…

Get on the interstate, and I’m already tensing up… Just waiting to jump into the see of red break lights… 5 miles into the trip… no traffic… but just wait its coming… We are half way there, my kids have only asked 20 times if we were almost there…. at this point… still no traffic…long story short, no traffic at all… smooth sailing. Made it into the city in record time…. SHOCKED.

Once we got there we met up with some friends, and off to our seats…

For me, the whole circus was sensory overload… a number of times there must of been 30 people doing some sort of act. Jumping, dancing, balancing, acrobats, unicycles, gymnasts… I couldn’t keep track, didn’t know who to watch.  The circus had the typical acts, clowns, elephants, tiigers, the cannon, tight rope, etc.. The only thing I was waiting for was Will Ferrell to take on Dewie The Bear like in Semi Pro. Some of the acts made me think I was watching America’s got Talent… but I have to tell you… everyone was extremely talented.

Seeing the excitement on my kids face, heck even my wife’s face made this trip really worth it. Hearing my youngest yell and cheer was priceless. Hearing my wife say…”That guy is NUTS!” (referring to the Lion/Tiger Tamer).

I will say as I was watching the show, I couldn’t help but wonder, how are these animals treated? I hope they are treated well. I am not the biggest animal lover, but I just curious… You hear things, news reports, but you just hope that its not true… Sure enough, as we were walking out… protesters. We saw them and wanted to shield our kids from hearing them and or seeing them. I just didn’t want to explain at 11pm what those protesters were talking about. But the kids never saw them and their experience at the circus was Legen… Wait for it… Dary…
