Okay, okay, okay…

So real quick, am I the only one on the face of the planet that has never taken the time to find out what the word “OKAY” really means? I mean come on! I’m somewhat of a smart guy, graduated with honors, and I really had no clue what good ol’ Websters defined it to mean. Granted, I ‘assumed’ it meant, ‘all is well’, or ‘sure, why not’, or ‘yeah, now shut-up’.

I decided to look it up, and behold, Wikipedia has answered my call. For anyone who really cares to research as I have, its quite an interesting read.

Daybreak makes CNN

Described as the ‘mega-suburb’ by CNN, Daybreak holds a special place in my heart for my family and I are to be permanent residents in that thar land (pending approval of adequate funding along with my right arm.)

I’m not sure I agree with the comment that it’s “twice the size of San Francisco”, but I will say, that when completed, we will be in the coolest little towns in the entire Salt Lake Valley. Not to mention, 1/2 mile away from the Biggest Movie Theater in the Universe™.

Jammin’ to Winger

So I was at the gym today, jammin’ to some good ol’ 80’s hair band music when a song by the legendary Winger, ‘Baptized by Fire’, was queued. Now, I don’t claim to be an expert on music, nor do I profess to approve my taste in music, but I will say that I do listen to Winger, and I do still enjoy Ratt every now-and-then.

But I digress, so I was listening to the song, when Kip (as he is named) commenced to break out into a session of Rack (or Rap/Rock). At first I thought, ‘oh my, this is horrible.’ But then, it dawned on me, ‘this sounds just like Kid Rock’. The same rocky, racky music that made Kid Rock famous, is now about to make me hurl as I tread along the elliptical trainer listening to Kip Winger bust a move. Kid Rock, Kip Winger..coincidence, I think NOT!!!
