Just The Perfect Lunch . . .

My friend Wendy was in California this week and managed to make time for a lunch date with me.

Here we stand in front of the giant marketing campaign for Gap's colored khakis.

It was a perfect day in San Francisco to enjoy the sun so we took a walk to The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen where we enjoyed some artisan grilled cheese sandwiches.  Yum!

Then I took Wendy on a tour of our office campus.  (Where we may have gotten in trouble for taking pictures of the Warhol's.   Oooops sorry!)

Just Whitney . . .

It is so sad that we have lost another talented singer; especially one that I feel I grew up with in the 80's.

So many great songs it is hard for me to narrow down my favorite:

  • Greatest Love Of All
  • Where Do Broken Hearts Go
  • Run To You
  • I Have Nothing
  • Queen Of The Night
  • My Love Is Your Love
  • Fine
  • I'm Every Woman
  • Love Will Save The Day
  • I'm Your Baby Tonight
  • So Emotional
  • How Will I Know
  • One Moment In Time
  • My Name Is Not Susan
  • Get It Back

In the end I chose Step By Step to share today because when I looked at my iTunes "Whitney Houston" play counts it far out paced any other song.

Step By Step is from The Preacher's Wife Soundtrack.  The song was written by Annie Lennox and if you listen close you can hear Annie performing the background vocals.

Just An Instant Replay . . .

Madonna did an excellent job with her half time performance at Super Bowl XLVI!

The only thing that would have made it better is if she would have sung live.  

But let's give credit where credit is due.  How many other 53 year old women do you know who are in that good of shape and could put on that high of an intensity dance show for 12 minutes? 

On this second viewing you can even catch a couple mistakes.  (At 3:58 she almost falls off the stage!)

Highlights for me were Nicki Minaj who continues to amaze me and Cee Lo Green who just may have upstaged Madge on Open Your Heart/Express Yourself and Like A Prayer.
