Time To Fess Up

miley2I like Miley Cyrus. Whew! That was hard to type. You may recall I slammed Miley in my post entitled Wannabe Shock Artist…No Miley! after her VMA performance in August. I was upset because as Hannah Montana  she was someone my daughter looked up to…then she turned the corner, and it made me angry. But I read some articles about her and her interview in Rolling Stone…I’ve had time to reflect.  I’ve come to accept she is just a kid finding her way like we all did and still do. miley3As a father it bothers me with some of the crap she does, but as a father it bothers me with some of the crap I did. So, I’m trying to be more understanding…she’s young and an artist who is expressing herself…and she has a platform to do so. In that way I respect her…even if I hate it when she sticks her tongue out. I hereby admit it’s not fair to expect her to be a role model for my kids. Whew! Now that I got that out of the way, I can actually say I like her music…click the picture above to hear a cool rendition of her hit We Can’t Stop with Jimmy Fallen.

anchormanI like Anchorman. Sorry Colleen. My wife hates this movie and when it came up in an “argument” with our 18-year old nephew over Thanksgiving I took my wife’s side. Sorry Trevor. But I hereby admit it…I like Anchorman…it’s funny! Click the picture to see some funny scenes…my favorite is at 3:08.

More Serious Transgressions. Sorry Readers, but this is not exactly the most appropriate venue for a full out confession. I’m sure there’s a lot more I could fess up to…but you’ll never know!  That said, I’m sure there are many things I need to make resolutions for…and I will…but not today. Today I’m hanging out with my family and tonight I’m having friends and neighbors over for a NYE party. My goal is to not wake up on the bathroom floor…an improvement on years past. Anyway, maybe on Thursday I’ll share some personal resolutions…maybe….  🙂

      Hi Kate, always so wonderful to hear from you. Thanks for your kind words. I follow you on FB…you have a nice circle. I was recently in Chicago and regret not reaching out to you…time was limited. VG was able to swing by and we spent an hour or so. Next time I’m there I’ll be sure to let you know….
