She Ain’t Gon Tie Me Down

Weight: 263

It’s Thursday…one day closer to Friday!

I have to say, St. Patrick’s Day was an interesting venture.  I got to see sights likes this:

Yes.  Only in the USA.

Also, that luncheon I attended sucked rocks.  At least, the food did.  The best parts…

The parmesan and dressing on this made the salad, really.  I loved every bite. 

In the middle there was a chicken, creamed spinach and carrot fiasco that looked so entirely dismal that I didn’t even make the effort to take a photo. 

I thought dessert would fare better…

But looks can be deceiving.  This was a Guiness chocolate cake and it tasted like stale gingerbread.  I took one bite and then abandoned ship.  Whatevs.

Then, on the drive back to work, we got to ride through downtown GR on St. Patrick’s Day, which is an experience all by itself.  I shot video of one of the finer points.

All around, interesting.

And the sun was shining on my drive home, which after the winter grays of Michigan, seemed miraculous.

I put on my sunglasses, took off my jacket and pretended that it is, in fact, not going to snow this weekend.

On the way into work today, I was forced to listen to Ray J’s latest song: She Ain’t Gon Tie Me Down.  Eck….

Just no.  On so many levels.  This immediately makes me think of Proverbs 18:22 (He that finds a wife, finds a good thing)…and the whole biblical topic of wifehood.  Men are such difficult creatures to understand.  The lack of true appreciation for what a woman can bring to a man’s life (outside of opening her legs) in popular culture astonishes me.  But this is the nature of life here on Earth in the year 2010. 

See you later, alligator!
