The football team i have been a season ticket holder with ever since i have been 4 years old. I love it for many reasons , from the food and drinks round my granma’s beforehand , to going with my grandad and dad, to the raw emotion that it brings out in me and 28,000 other people. Yes it can be frustrating sometimes but i find that , that just means the good seasons are appreciated much more. The club may hold some bad records but it has also had some great success in its existance as well , i feel blessed to be a Derby county fan ( Ram).
How Chris Daughtry didnt do better on american idol is beyond me , sure he may have got to the finals but serious have you heard this guy sing ?! He should have won hands down. Thier music is pretty remarkable and back to those vocals ( Oh yes it epitimises all that is rock music!) Give my favourite song a listen “What I Want“
Dogs ( Buddy)
I feel kind of bad now that i didnt put my dog buddy in on the “B” Challenge but it completely slipped my mind. Luckily for me i got another crack at the whip by talking about ” all dogs”. Dogs are pretty remarkable creatures to be honest. Most of the time they are either ( Mardy,lazy,happy,crazy,playful or down right stupid), but we still love them all the same. My dog buddy is no different to others, when he has a strop on he will stay away from everyone , but when he doesnt you better get your face ready for “kisses” or your hand ready for a nibbling!
So onto the third day of the challenge , and i must say i am really enjoying doing these …
I like to on this blog introduce people to perhaps new and intresting music. Well ever since Dallas ( City) Green ( Colour) decided to do a new project after his old band Alexisonfire decided to stop touring there has been nothing holding him back. His soulful lyrics and questions within his songs really do make you feel like you are the person in question . I would call it soft melodic rock and i think the acoustic guitar he uses matches his voice incredibly well. Here is his song ” Comin’ Home” I hope you enjoy it.
Or as it was known when i was in attendance ( Chellaston Secondary School & Technology College). It is where i spend years 11-16 of my life and i look back at my time there now with affection . Its true at the time ( Like everyone else im sure) I was sick of the homework and the constant ” Pressure” (Which looking back was very trivial and almost non existant). But i did make some amazing friends and memories which will follow me for the rest of my life. I miss school and sometimes i wish i could do it over and perhaps do a little better , but then i realise that because i know i could have done better i wont let it happen again in the rest of my life, perhaps thats the true lesson we all learn from school ” Learning from our mistakes”.
It wouldnt be a true “C” without cheesecake . No matter what else is on the desert menu this little creamy and biscuity beauty will ALWAYS come out on top. Honestly it can be any variation , flavour ,style it really doesnt matter there is just something about it which attracts me too it. Which is why i will be when i become president of my own nation ( A guy can dream right ?) i will be passing a law which states a slice of cheesecake counts as a mandatory one of your five a day and without it you are breaking the law. Crazy? Perhaps but it is delicious.
Today’s letter from the alphabet challenge is “B”.
I remember this band as probably the reason i got interested in rock music. I would have been perhaps 5-6 when my dad would be driving us somewhere he would stick on one of their albums and he would sing along ( and i would try to the best of a 5 year olds abilities). Its needless to say that i remember it with fond memories and im so glad it happened because my choice of music genre helps make me who i am. My favorite song by them is ” you give love a bad name“
Me and my girlfriend recently went to Belgium over the Christmas period ( i suppose you could use Brussels or Brugges for the B challenge also) . But either way we had a really amazing time and the beautiful architecture and statues as well as amazing company made the trip unforgettable. We spent the time , wandering through the gorgeous city , while visiting its many museums. We had a day trip to Brugges and we made sure we didnt forget to get ourselves lots of chocolate ..
For those of you who don’t know i play cricket . I like to think of myself as a slow/spin bowler who isn’t half bad really. In the last 5 seasons i have 85 wickets and i didn’t really bowl much in two of those seasons. But to the point of why i chose to use it for the letter B . When i have the ball in my hand and im about to start the bowling process i feel important My team mates are relying on me , to get the job done and help the team as a whole. Sure personal achievement comes into it as well but there is nothing like the feeling of getting the winning wicket in the final ball of a game and your whole team coming over to celebrate with you with pure emotion.
