The One That Rambles and Explains the Title
Why is it that I can think of 35 things to write about all day long when I am not here? Then, I sit staring blankly at an empty new post space....blink....blink blink....

My latest musical obsession...Gavin DeGraw. I must listen to his live songs on every night. "Just Friends," "Follow Through," "Get Lost." He is to die for along with my Maroon 5, my Davey (Matthews, of the Dave Matthews Band fame, you may have heard of him), and my Robbie (Thomas of another little group you may have heard of, Matchbox twenty). Sadly, I do not have Gavin DeGraw's cd. ( listening??) When we get our new computer, hopefully at the first of the year, I will be salivating for an iPod!! I likes me music.

What does Ficken Chingers mean, you ask? I shall enlighten the masses. Mass. The one person reading this. One night the whole fam damily went to Steak & Shake. Home of the side by side milk shake, don't ya know. We had asked Tater Tot, the 3 year old daughter, what she wanted to eat. She chose chicken fingers. We waited for the waitress. (waited for the waitress...there is something wrong with that sentence, it seems) Right before she came to take our order, we asked TT again what she wanted. "I WANT FICKEN CHINGERS!" We all stopped, then burst into gales of laughter. She had no idea what she had even said. So, now of course we call all chicken fingers, Ficken Chingers. Sounds almost dirty, doesn't it?? And that, my friends, is the story behind the name. It was that or something so creative as....My Blog, or Angie's World. Whee...

I should warn you all now, I like to use the "dot dot dot." A lot. Annoying? Most likely. But it is a habit I cannot break. (80's song alert...I'm addicted to you baby, you're a hard habit to break...)

Cast of characters--my husband of 14 years is Bubba-ump. 13 year old daughter is Guard Girl (or GG). 3 year old daughter is Tater Tot (or TT). 1 1/2 year old son is Biggens (or little big or bubby, not sure yet of his name assignment). There will be a test on this.

Since it is now after 3am and I have managed to ramble a while, I should probably go to bed.

Now if I could only figure out how to add photos and fun stuff to this blog, all would be right with the world.

Nighty 'night.
