I don't know if they're a hit in the US or not, but the lead singer of the band 'The Ordinary Boys' is a celebrity here in the UK. He did 'Celebrity Big Brother' on TV and now he's really well known. Anyway, his picture is all over magazines & the tabloids and every time I see his face, I feel like I know him (kind of like a different lead singer of a famous British boy band who looks very much like my first love - his photo is EVERYWHERE and every time I see him - I feel like I should wave because that's what you do when you know each other intimately).
I digress...the lead singer of the Ordinary Boys (his name is Preston) - for the longest time, I've felt like know him, but haven't been able to place where I know him from. Then, it hit me - he looks a lot like a Canadian I met years ago on a business trip (and during another trip, spent a drunken - yet highly enjoyable evening with). Mystery solved.
This morning, I saw a link to their web site so, I thought I'd take a closer look to see if he actually does look like my favorite Canadian. I spent the following 30 minutes reading The Diary section of the site. It wasn't like they talked about anything of substance, but it was interesting all the same and found myself reading on. It wasn't what he talked about, but how he expressed himself that made it interesting. I soon realized this blog of mine - it's really F*@king boring and I wish I had something to say that would actually make someone linger longer than expected.
Maybe it's the colder weather making me feel like sh*t (arthritis) but I've been feeling pretty uninspired lately, so if anyone has any good blogging topics - feel free to shoot me an email. Maybe once I start writing on a regular basis again - my entries may start getting a bit more interesting.
My in-laws just left after a five day visit. I don't mind it being a five day visit, but then again, five days of your house not being your own is always a bit unsettling and although I don't look forward to their departure when they are here, I can't say I'm sad to have things go back to normal. As a treat for my son's birthday, we took him to the Museum of Natural History in London on Thursday. He chose to go because we took him last year (he's been crazy about dinosaurs since he was three years old). They give out adventure packs at the museum which consist of a back pack, safari hat, and binoculars with an adventure to follow during their visit. The back pack has clues in it to solve a mystery. Last year it had a dinosaur claw, a tooth and a sample of dinosaur skin he had to match up to one on display. He had a great time solving the mystery and even remembered which dinosaur it ended up being. Last year's trip was wonderful. We walked right in,
