I'm SO sorry you were disappointed.
But.....why.....did you like my stirring commentary on the whole thing?
Nothing to see here.....move along.....

Constantine also sang one of my favorite songs (I've talked about my Chad Kroeger obsession before, right?) and he was very, very bad. Simon just said it was a bad imitation of the original, and that is exactly right. BAD being the key word. It was AWFUL!
Simon has a good ear. He was right about Vonzell being pitchy. I'm not saying she wasn't good, she was. But, in the beginning, she was not in tune. And, I suspect, when they watch it, they'll hear it.
Oh yeah, Scott still has to go. I'm going to hate him, so no reason to wait for his performance....
Dear Ms. Holladay:
We write to express our appreciation for your thoughtful column printed in the Star on April 26. In your report you raised some of the very basic issues concerning quality public services tax-paying citizens should expect from a modern community library. The Indianapolis Marion County Public Library has a rich history of providing excellent, professional response to the needs of not only our county citizens, but needs for Indiana citizens in general. The new building will be a structure symbolizing civic pride just as other communities in Indiana (Fort Wayne, Fishers, Noblesville, and Carmel) have found recently.
It is indeed true that public library services are changing in many respects. Recently, interns from our graduate program at IUPUI helped to usher in many changes in technology supported information access through a program funded by the Gates Foundation. These interns serviced over 90 public libraries in Indiana, including IMCPL. A more inviting and popular collection is also basic to the enhancement of the new facilities IMCPL has already constructed on a very innovative basis at many locations in the county.
Although IMCPL faces what we understand to be very difficult financial decisions, a dramatic shift away from professionals in key management, subject expertise and service positions can result in deterioration of public services regardless of how efficient support staff may be. The expectations for professional librarians today have increased in these areas:
The IMCPL director and her excellent staff face some very difficult decisions. Perhaps choices have been made and there is no turning back. Perhaps the quality of public services will be monitored so that meaningful information education and delivery will not be lost in this new community structure we all look forward to using. It is our hope that a high quality staff of professionals will be part of the future showcase as well as the structure itself.

Of course, I could do a list for non-fiction, for classic fiction, for poetry, for drama.....the list goes on and on. I love books. And, while I do like "literature" I'm much more of a regular bookshelf, genre crap kinda girl!
Now, I'm sure 1 & 4 are legitimate, but I don't know where the other ones came from. And, by the way, Alessandro del Piero really DOES look like Bruce Springsteen to me!
I'm sorry. A NASCAR driver? Apparently, even web based quizzes can smoke crack.
I had a good time, and it was a beautiful day for a walk.
