Pole Writing...Botox Treatment...WSM Next Week

38 for a high today.  Yikes.  It's usually about this time of year weather guy reminds you to cover up your plants.  Which is why I'm glad we asphalted the lawn and beds this year.  No plants.



It's not every day there's a pole in the middle of the room I'm writing in...but there is when I write with Jenny Tolman.  She and her boyfriend producer Dave Brainerd actually put up a You Tube Video of Jenny singing "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree" decorating their place and of course they do put a sign on it that says "North Pole".  Of course.  Yes...she does pole dance...in one of those exercise classes and she's done that silk scarf dangling thing like one would see at a Cirque Show...if you've ever been to one of those.


And guess what crept into our song yesterday?  Uh uh.  The silk scarf and Cirque.  So it was a really fun creative out of the box puzzle that we strung together yesterday.  She will release a new single to radio in early January and her album that she and Dave produced will be released late next year. 






Well...they say "botox" for guys is big right now.  So ladies...there's your guy gift giving idea this year.  A little needle in the forehead for your dear ole boyfriend-hubby.  Nothing says Christmas like a botox treatment.  And yea...I'm pretty sure there MUST be a Christmas song of some kind that could deal with this. 



The lastest equations say it wlll cost you around $233,000 to raise a kid to the age of 17.  Figure in college and the medical bills it cost to have that yougun' and it could give one pause before hatching a large family.  You didn't say "triplets" did you Doc?!



They surely tested this before they put out this statistic that "kids work harder when they are dressed up like Batman".  Seriously.  How hard does Wonder Woman work I wonder?  I hate Christmas shopping...that's hard work for me every year.  So maybe I'll don a cape and a mask and get after it this year.



Those big electric semi trucks are gonna catch on.  Makes sense.  Going to save some trucking companies a lot of money.  More than one company has placed a fleet order of these bad boys including Anheuser Busch who has ordered 40 of them to deliver beer.  Which means of course that the price of buying a Clydesdale is going down.





I was watching Monday Night Football last night...at least part of it...when they put up the trailer for the new Jurassic Park movie out next year called "Fallen Kingdom".  Couldn't take my eyes off of it.  And once again when one watches trailer...we're reminded of how ridiculously amazing computer animation is. Click on the link and see for yourself.


I remember the first time I ever went to Disney World and witnessed the magic of computers and animatronics.  I saw President Lincoln rise from a chair in the Hall of Presidents in the Magic Kingdom and kept saying, "how do they do that"?  It's good to to be amazed.  I have a feeling I'll be asking that same question when I go see the new Star Wars movie that's out in the next few days too.



MSN this morning listed 17 things a man should never say to a woman.  These two in particular make sense to me.


"My Exes Are All Crazy".  Pretty sure that's when your date who's having dinner with you says, "check please"!


And then this one, "I didn't know you were smart"!  That one is more times than not followed up with that guy saying, "I didn't know you had such a powerful right hand". 



Early this afternoon I'm writing with young Taylon Hope for the first time...a young North Carolina girl I believe.  She and her parents came out to see our "Hits & Grins" trio last night and the Dad is a big fan of WSM and knew I worked there which led to more conversation and this writing appointment with his daughter today on Music Row.  It's always fun for me to write with new young talent so I'm looking forward to getting to know Taylon better.  And oh yea...she can sing.  Here's one EXAMPLE you can check out if you'd like.



Have I mentioned I have not done a bit of Christmas shopping yet?  Sigh.  Wonder what a botox coupon costs?  I'll be doing some of that for sure and ten prepping for a really busy week next week as I'm on the WSM morning dark and early Monday through Friday.  Because of that...there will just be very short blogs here because of time constraints.


Hope you have a great weekend too!
