She told me that she had seen an interview with the Rev Billy Graham and that she always calls it to mind when she is feeling less than amorous with her spouse. She said it gives her peace.
The story goes like this:
The Reverend was asked by the interviewer if the Lord had ever spoken to him directly. The Reverend response was, "Only once." He went on to say that he had been arguing with his wife one day and while shaving his face alone in the bathroom, still stewing over the specifics of their argument, the Lord spoke to him and said, "You're no bargain, either."
I couldn't help but think it was genius.
Whether or not the higher power actually intervened and spoke those words of truth to the Reverend is completely irrelevant to the point, which is, so true.
"You're no bargain, either"
Damn, ain't that the truth.
This is not an endorsement of the Reverends teachings, or a religious or political agenda advancement. It's just a simple take on that age-old commitment of marriage.
It sure puts things into perspective doesn't it?

I saw the Bon Jovi concert on Saturday night and I just can't get the image of this beautiful man out of my mind. Then I found this photo on the internets and I was lost in a haze for a few moments.....*sigh*
Anyway,(composing myself) the concert ROCKED!!!
What was so interesting to me was that I found I am not alone in my worship of this beautiful creature who has been making women swoon for 27 rockin and rollin years. If your're a regular Daily Dandy reader you know that after My Guy, My Tommy comes a close second and John Bon Jovi is right after Tommy without much room to spare. Hot Damn!
When I arrived at the concert parking lot to commence with the tail gate party, I had to pee really bad so I had no choice but to cross the lot to the where the port-a-pottys were located. On my way over, I noticed the constant sea of myself, everywhere.
And by that I mean, I was demographic in attendance. Forty something, hot MILF'y cougars getting their Bon Jovi on. They were everywhere and they out numbered the males by about 6 to 1. There were a few kids in attendance, but probably because they were there with their hot, MILF'y moms. I was surprised. I remember Bon Jovi being a big 80's band, and I'm sure a lot of those hot, 40 somethings were fans back in the day, but I thought the band had more males than females who were fans.
After our rockin' tail gate, we went into Gillete Stadium to hear the opening act, Kid Rock. Holy sexy! The dude brought the house down. Who knew? I was so utterly entertained and on my feet during his set, I almost wondered if Bon Jovi could follow that act. Kid Rock switched musical genre's during the hour long set and he played EVERY musical instrument on the stage. From funk to soul to rock to rap to country, that skinny little dude put on an amazing show. The crowd loved him! Now I see why Pamela Anderson was married to him for a full 15 minutes.
Of course good old Bon Jovi didn't disappoint. They played for 2 and a half hours and during that time, myself and every other woman in attendance practically lost their breath when John smiled his million dollar smile on the Jumbo-Tron for all to see. Ritchie Sambora isn't too shabby either, and I can't remember having a better time at a concert. I had a few of those, "I forgot they sang this song," moments and was surprised at how much Bon Jovi music is ingrained into the culture of my life.
I went home, blaring my Bon Jovi CD on the ride back and crawled into bed with My Guy. I also might have tapped him on the shoulder, to give him the signal. *wink, wink* I can say with certainty that out of the thousands of swooning women at the show, I was not the only one waking their spouse after arriving home for a little sumpin' sumpin'.
So maybe I was wrong. Maybe Bon Jovi today, have far more male fans than they did before Saturday night for that reason alone.

HUNNY: I'm going to be needing some nookie tonight baby, and since when do I have to schedule an "appointment"?
BUNNY: Oh just you wait for the honeymoon, Mister. Rules say that on your honeymoon you have to have nookie EVERY DAY, and at least 2 or 3 times a day.
HUNNY: No, the rule is....
BUNNY: OH NO, you don't get to make the rules.
HUNNY: Why is it that you tell me your rule, and when I try to tell you mine, you jump all over me and yell.
BUNNY: Because mine is a joke.
HUNNY: How do you know mine isn't?
BUNNY: Go ahead.
HUNNY: Rule says that before you are married every time you have sex, you place a penny in a jar. After you are married, you take a penny out of the jar. The rule says you will never be able to empty the jar.
BUNNY: Ha Ha....that better be a joke. Not funny....
I'm not saying that's the conversation that My Guy and I had this morning.
What would make you think that???

- the shower was FANTASTIC! Holy crap, I am an ass. It was in one of my most favorite places, the people, the food, the whole thing....one of the best day's of my life. The only thing missing was Frick, but she's having a great time in Italy right now.
- It wasn't your average shower. The theme was lingerie and I got so many beautiful things. Good thing the weight loss tally is at 19 lbs. My Guy is soooo lucky. hee hee.
- I eneded up staying overnight at the hotel where the the shower was held with my 4 good friends from high school. We had the best time, had wayyyy to many drinks and ended up sleeping in the same bed together. ALL FOUR OF US. Hugh Heffner would have been in heaven. I love those guys.
- Did I mention I'm still recovering?
- I'm beginning to enjoy this whole "wedding" process.
- I couldn't ask for a better family and friends to share this with. I am so grateful for their love and support.
"Lucky is the man who recognizes that his blessings out weigh his problems"........
That's me. Luckiest lady in the world.

A: I'm so surprised by all the hoopla. And I don't mean that tongue and cheek. Really? Is my life effected by last night's big announcement that Lebron will sign with the Miami Heat? Yes and no.
Q: Yes and No? How so?
A: No. I really don't give a good Goddamn where King James chooses to play the rest of his years out. BUT, will it effect my life? Maybe. Come next June when the Celtics are in the playoffs, maybe I will care when Boston has to face the stacked Miami Heat in the playoffs. I cannot lie.
Q: Are you worried about the prospect of a new "Big Three" (James, Wade and Bosh) in the Eastern Conference?
A: Listen, if James were coming to the Celtics, this would be a much different post. But the fact of the matter is, three years ago I felt the same electricity the people of Miami are feeling right now. AND we have a World Championship to prove it. Am I worried? Sort of. Do I blame Lebron for wanting a World Championship? No. How could I? The supposed Best Player in the NBA has shocked the world by leaving Cleveland and let's face it, the dude didn't have the team behind him to take home the banner. So he has made a decision to put himself in the best position to be part of a championship team. It's what little boys dream of and fans alike. No, Lebron James has a dream. I don't blame him at all.
Q: Do you think the Heat will dominate the league now?
A: Maybe. Only time will tell. If they don't there are going to be a lot of people who will love every minute of it.
Q: Do you think Lebron is worthy of all the hype?
A: Look, I am a Celtic's fan first, and all other b-ball played throughout the season is a highlight on Sports Center or a blurb in my beloved Boston Herald. Lebron is an above average player who has not yet realized his potential. If that is measured in World Championships, then he has been a huge disappointment. But he is no Michael Jordan. Sorry. The press and the drama surrounding this announcement has been nothing short of ridiculous. AND no, I did not watch it live. I have been listening all week to sports radio and by Tuesday I was already over the whole thing. I love basketball as much as the next guy, but James is nothing more than over rated in my book. If he makes an impact then I will be the first to eat those words. As much as it pains me to say this, I think Kobe is a better player. James is nasty on the outside shot and making the drive to the hoop but Kobe's got the whole package. And don't think I enjoy admitting that.
Q: You mean King James dosen't deserve that title?
A: Lebron has won the league MVP for the last two years but has he made an impact and transcended the game like Michael Jordan? No. Not even close. Just my opinion. When Jordan was playing he "floated like a butterfly and stung like a bee". You know where I am going with this...James has to prove himself to hold Jordan's jock strap. For sure.
Q: Candy, tell us how you really feel?
A: Sick. Really Lebron? Why couldn't you have just announced it with your new teammates, Wade and Bosh. I gotta ask you, who the hell do you think you are? The King?
Make no mistake, there was only one King and he died sitting on the hopper on August 16th, 1977.

PRO SIDE: Lindsay Lohan is a young, troubled girl who should not be sentenced to jail time, but should be sentenced to a rehabilitation program for 90 days to try and cure her addiction to alcohol and illegal substances. She has tried to do what was asked of her, but she has to work to provide for herself and her schedule is very difficult to balance. She claims that this is not a joke, that she took it very seriously. She was under the assumption that it was OK to miss the court appointed classes because she was working.
CON SIDE: Are you F*CK-ing kidding me?? She's just like the thief who's not sorry she stole, but EVER SO SORRY she got caught. Welcome to the real world Lindsay, the one where no one gives a good goddam who you are. She has had more than enough chances to "take this seriously". 90 days is nothing for to the balls she has shown in thinking that the law does not apply to her, because at one time she had a promising Hollywood career. And, "working" as she calls it, is not jet setting all over the world, snorting cocaine and taking pictures with the paparazzi. Game over sister, thank God.
What do you think?

It is brilliant in it's execution and the people at Doritios made me root for the cute little old man in this ad.
I actually wanted him to get the Doritios.
What happens here is pure brilliance.
