Steve Scher is officially my hero. This super notorious guy just decides one day, a week after turning 60, "Yeah... today. Today is my last day." Boom. Done. What an awesome time in life that must be where you've worked hard, you've made your mark, you've done your thing, and now it's time to move on. How scary and awesome that must be. Sincere kudos and good luck to him on his new ventures. And a major… well, congratulations seems inappropriate, but I'm way stoked for him that his tinnitus is waning. I hope his story gives others with the condition an extra dose of perseverance.

And we heard not one, but two, incidences of Rudy going after peeps at the dog beach. I think I'm with all of you who said she needs to be trained before she's allowed off the leash. Rudy convinced me.

Don't forget Song of the Summer! Have a great weekend everyone!

I know today's pic is totally random so I feel the need to explain it. I wanted to find a funny kissing picture, but the funniest I found was of a lady kissing a pig. I didn't want to somehow insinuate that Andrew was a pig, or the girl was a pig, or anyone was a pig. So then I tried to think of a random animal and plugged in giraffe to the site I have to choose pics from. And this one came up. And I think it's hilarious. End story.

SavedBytheBell-cartoon

New story.

"Time for the obligatory kiss."

Oh Andrew.

To ease Andrew's embarrassment I'm going to tell two other foot in mouth related stories.

A friend of mine was telling me how he broke up with a girl in high school. He felt bad, but knew he had to do it and agonized over the right words to say. What did he come up with?

"I've got to cut the fat out of my life."

To his credit, like Andrew meant to say customary, what my friend meant was that he needed to remove the distractions in his life to focus on school or whatever. That message didn't exactly come across.

The other story is about me and my husband. The first time I broke up with him was because he said this:

"Can I just put you on the back burner for awhile and see if things work out with this other girl?"

I told him no. And then cut him out of my life entirely. Then we ended up getting engaged four months later. Love is funny.

What's not funny, but very serious, is Song of the Summer. Be sure to click on the button and get involved!

First off, I need a moment of grandeur…

This is my 50th blog post!

That's all.

As an albino-non-drive-o, it was hard for me to get behind the car conversation. However, it did bring back a strange memory. Back in high school I made a friend named Jason through some weird circumstances. The experience that cemented mine and Jason's friendship took place in his car in my parent's driveway.

SavedBytheBell-cartoon

Nope. Not what you're thinking.

Our friendship cementing experience was installing speakers into his Nissan Sentra. Well, I think it was us attempting to install the speakers. Pretty sure we weren't successful. And I remember something happened that caused me to bleed because I got flack for years about getting blood on his new car. My bad. Song of the Summer! Click the button! Nominate songs! Make it happen!

And a final thought. How would fans watch Game of Thrones without the internet to look up geography and character information?

When Luke first said they'd be discussing Nicholas Cage's outfit, I really thought they were going to go a different direction. I assumed there'd be less... envy. But I get it. I really do.

It takes a strong character to choose to put together an ensemble that not only includes chaps, but a shirt with your own face on it. Why does he even own that? Did a fan send it to him? Oh man, I hope he made it himself. Just for that concert. And now he should auction it off for charity or something.

I sincerely admire him, or anyone for that matter, who wears what they wanna wear even if it means the internet is going to make fun of them. The one thing I can't get behind is the cane. My assumption is he was holding it for Andy Dice Clay. That's the only reasonable explanation I can come up with.

And Song of the Summer starts Tuesday! If you sent an entry to the email address provided last week, I hope you didn't forget your nominee because now it's all happening in a super fancy, super official site coming from Chateau Ste Michelle. Woo! Yay! Exclamation points!

I am totally with Andrew on the buffer vacation days. I need a day or two before going back to work to unpack my bags, do laundry, lay on the couch in my sweat pants, watch The Office reruns, and eat nachos while dreading having to go back to work the next day. I guess doing it Luke's way makes a bit more sense, though. If I got back into town the night before going back to work then I don't have enough time to dread returning. Hmm. Nachos for thought.

Song of the Summer! Who's excited? This girl. Not because I have any nominations to throw into the hat — my interest in cool music lasted about 2 years and then I returned to 90s country and pop — but it's such a super fun way for everyone to get involved. It's seriously one of my favorite times of year and I'm excited it's happening again. If you wanna get your nominations in early you can send them to songofthesummer@tbtl.net. Please be sure to include a link to the audio so the gents don't have to track it down. They've got radio shows to produce and yellowjackets to monitor.

AND… it sounds like there's going to be another get together at Chateau Ste Michelle and I'm really, really, really going to try to make it this year. You should come too.
