Out of Practice

I am sitting here slowly sipping a diet coke (my first in more than a week- I have been really good about cutting down so far in 2008!), reading blogs and watching Garth Brooks on CBS because I have some sort of stomach bug. Try not to be jealous of my truly exciting Friday night. But who am I kidding? It's cold outside and staying in is just more appealing, bug or no bug. Anyway, I used to be a big Garth fan. My musical taste runs the gamut but Garth is just a classic. Always good- no always great. But...um...either it is because this is filmed at a live event or because he has been hiding out for the last many years and is out of practice ....he just doesn't seen to be as good. I'm guessing it's the out of practice thing. Don't get me wrong, I still think his songs are awesome. I just think he should either get back to touring shape or really retire. It annoys the heck out of me when singers "retire" every few years. I don't know why, it just does. Personally I vote to get back into touring shape and cut another album.

There is clearly no real point to this post other than to tell you that Mr.Brooks still plays great music but needs to practice singing more before he goes on National TV for a two hour time block.

If you can get your hands on this stuff called Ginger Beer (there is no alcohol), it will help your stomach bug. I had an awful thing the entire first week of December and I found this stuff at Trader Joe's and Costco and it helped. It does have quite the ginger bite to it.
