I went up to the radio station today, and got to meet Jessica Simpson. My interaction with her was very short, but she was really nice, and I got to take a picture with her. I put it up on MySpace. Anyway, she had several people with her and her dog, which was interesting. We waited while she talked on the air with the morning show, and when she was done with them and some fans that had won the right to meet her, we got to mingle in the hallway for a few minutes. I told her it was nice to meet her, and it was nice to see a fellow Texan. I also mentioned rooting for Romo. She made the appropriate nice acknowledgments, but I am sure it wasn't anything she really was too worried about. She was nice though. She didn't looked like she put some makeup and so on on beforehand, but not all decked out for Hollywood. Of course, I guess I wouldn't expect that for a trip to a radio station. It was cool to meet her though, and when I think about it, she is probably the celebrity that I have met that most people would have the most interest in in one way or another. Its also cool to have to brag to the guys about...

Went to see Carrie Underwood with my wife. It was a nice show, but rather low key for the most part. Carrie is everything you expect. Sweet, beautiful voice, very pretty. It was nice, and though I wasn't jumping out of my skin to go when previously hearing about it, I am glad I did.

Video Games

Downtime at work again today, so I decided to create a video games page with links to images of my collection of games. As I am typing this, I am thinking about how pathetic and nerdy it sounds, but I have to do something besides twiddle my thumbs. Besides, it could be useful in the future....

An actual Transformers update today.... I spent a lot of time and really updated my Transformers IDW cover checklist. I added books I was missing for pretty much every IDW series I have on there. I also updated my Grimm checklist.

American Idol Tour

Last night went with my wife to the American Idol Tour concert. I have to admit, I really wasn't looking forward to it. I have watched the show with my wife the last few years, but have always felt that the show has a little too much drama, and that most of the time the people at the end won more a popularity contest than talent contest. Last year I did think was better though, and it did translate to me actually enjoying the concert to a certain degree. My favorites were Carly and Cook. I liked them both the best at the concert as well. I guess the best thing is, that there was not anyone in the top 10 I really hated with this group. So for the concert, even the artist that I didn't care for as much still were okay to watch. Cook was awesome at the end with his version of Billy Jean. I actually will probably buy the CD for this winner for the first time. My wife did have fun, and we got her some cool souvenirs for her studio such as a group poster, a program, and photos of Carly and Cook. of course, while she enjoyed it, I do think she is overly infatuated with New Kids right now.......

Indians Game

I got invited by a good friend of mine Tom to go to the Cleveland Indians game yesterday. My friend John was going too, and he drove us. It was fun. Tom had us in one of the Suites his company has behind home plate. Food was good, and the people I didn't know were all nice. I really enjoyed the game, and it was nice to see the Indians winning. They have been doing well lately, which is nice since most of the season has been a disappointment with the way the season ended last year. Anyway, it was really cool, and it was nice of Tom to invite us. We left a little early, which I normally hate to do, but everyone else was bailing out, and since I have to get up for work early the next day, I wasn't going to put up a fight. Baseball hasn't been as fun for me this season, so this was definitely a highlight.
