Ok, that got your attention didn't it!!! For all those family members and friends out there who just hit the floor, don't worry. I still believe life is precious and blah, blah, blah. I'm getting bored with this ... Come on, do you believe everything you read on the internet?

I am proud to say that I live in a land of choices. Here are a few I choose:

  3. Diet Coke with Vanilla from Sonic over anything in beverage form!!!

  7. Cowboy Pre-season games over Ranger games on TV
  8. Laptop over desktops (how did I ever do it the other way!)
  9. Aquafina bottled water over Dasani
  10. Ford over Dodge (can't you tell from my rear-window sticker of the cartoon character urinating on the Dodge logo!! That's what real mean have on their cars!!)
  11. Chevy over Ford (I own 2 Ford vehicles but I covet a Chevy Tahoe!! One day ...)
  12. Target over Wal-Mart
  13. Saltgrass Steakhouse over Outback Steakhouse
  14. Breadsticks over sourdough

Smooth You Ain't!

I got the asked the question the other day by a friend (plug for BP) who wanted to know the history behind "Smooth Johnny". Rather than re-inventing, here's what I wrote on my very first blog entry last year. Here tis:

Opening Ceremonies - June 11, 2004

I just found out how to start my own Blog. I think that sounds very "internetishy" but it's something I thought I'd look into. Sounds like a fun way to share what's going on in my head from goofy to serious thoughts. By the way, the title of my Blog is "Smooth Johnny Talk". Wanna know the history behind that? One day I was playing golf with my friend Deb and we were playing with a group of guys that we didn't know. On the 3rd hole, one of the guys let me use his Big Bertha driver for fun. After I hit it once, the guy said, "Nice shot. You've got a good swing" He let me hit another one (must have been a slow day on the course!) and after the 2nd swing, he exclaimed the now infamous phrase, "Wow, that's smooth Johnny!" After walking down the fairway, my friend said, "I think he thinks your name is Johnny and not Donny". I thought she was joking until the next few holes he kept referring to me as "Johnny". Well the nickname stuck between Deb and I. She often refers to me as "Smooth Johnny" so I thought it sounded funny especially when you think of how ironic that sounds if you know me. I may be alot of things but smooth is not a great description. I'll let those of you who know me, fill in the blanks with your own description. So there you go. Smooth Johnny Talk is born.

God bless you all,
