He. Is. Awesome!
Here is why I like him: He's just standin' there like a little punk teenager you would see at the mall. Like, "What's up? I'm Alex, and I probably egged your car last Halloween." Then he starts singing. And... Wow. Awesomeness.
Here's what they win: The Grand Prize winner will be invited to perform the national anthem at the Museum in Washington, D.C. and at the Baltimore Orioles vs. Atlanta Braves game, both on Flag Day (June 14, 2009). The prize, made possible by Grand Blanc Travel, includes a trip for two to Washington, D.C., including airfare; tickets and transportation to a Baltimore Orioles baseball game; and $400 in spending money. Three nights lodging will be provided by JW Marriott Washington, D.C., a luxury hotel located on Pennsylvania Avenue within walking distance to the White House, the National Mall, the National Museum of American History, and a myriad of dining and shopping destinations.
Judges for this round include: pop singer-songwriter, DeLyn; international, Grammy Award-winning guitarist and singer, José Feliciano; jazz keyboardist, composer, and producer, Marcus Johnson; and pop singer-songwriter and winner of the sixth season of TV’s "American Idol," Jordin Sparks. They'll announce the winner on May 19th!

And if you enjoy following all of the great ways to improve the environment, check out my dad's business- PureSpectrum. There's a lot of techie talk, but in a nutshell: they create technology to make your lightbulbs burn brighter, last longer, use less energy, keep your bills low, AND make your carbon footprint a whole lot smaller.
It's pretty cool.

It was decided the stately, bronze structure submitted by architects Freelon Adjaye Bond/SmithGroup won the hearts of the official jury. AND I can give you a little sneak peak... 'cuz I know people.

As a result, and as an effort to save some money, Charlie and I are really, really going to try cooking at home more. Our kitchen is never used and we eat mostly junk. But Sadie is getting older and I don't want to raise her on fast food. Plus... I think Charlie and I have gotten a little softer in places (okay, a lot of places.) so this might be really good for us. Our only problem is that both of us hate cooking and love eating. We'll see how this goes.
