News and Whimsy


It has come to my attention that I only posted 3 blogs during the month of November.  I'm not afraid to admit that it was a pathetic effort on my part.  The good news is that I am finally done with med school* and I passed the bar exam as well* so as long as the girls cooperate at night we can return to our regularly scheduled Skog Blog programming.  I had a Skog Family Week in Review ready to go tonight but decided that at this point I will just wait until Sunday and add anything exciting that happens this weekend.  Stay tuned.

* (May or may not have actually happened)

In more important news, the Loosle side of the Skog family welcomed another mini KG into the world this week.  No need to be surprised, loyal readers, it wasn't actually a full fledged KG, rather it was the newborn son of my best pal and cousin, David.  He generously named his boy after his favorite cousin stating that 'somebody needed to carry on the KG legacy' since I am apparently not capable of producing a son myself.  Here is Oliver KG Simmons who weighed in at a whopping 9 lbs 14 oz and at 21.5 inches long. 


For the Glee fans out there - a list of 20 Memorable Quotes from Sue Sylvester.  My favorite: ''That was the most offensive thing I've seen in 20 years of teaching — and that includes an elementary school production of Hair.''

I know we've already missed a few of the Christmas classics but here is a handy directory of 2009 TV Christmas Specials.

Perhaps the thought of hearing FM100's Christmas coverage for the 30th consecutive year makes you feel Grinchy.  Checkout the online stream from WOXY for some new Christmas hits.

I found The Muppets: Bohemian Rhapsody to be clever but also a bit underwhelming.  See for yourself.

Is there anything Lebron James can't do?  See you on Jan 14th, Mr. James.

And finally, let's say someone told me that there was going to an A Capella Competition on NBC.  I would be intrigued.  Then the person informed me that one of the competing groups was from UT.  I might have to check this out.  Last, I discover that the competition will be judged by none other then Mr. Ben Folds.  My tivo has been set.  Starts Dec 14th on NBC.

Glad to see you back. I miss you when you are gone. Where else would I get information on a acapella competition starring Ben Folds?

Wait...was that Amber Montgomery in the BYU Noteworthy picture? On the far left?
