Name Dropping At Its Finest

Rappers loooovvvveee to talk about all the crap they eat, drink and smoke, and I wonder how the companies feel about that. Granted, some of the alcohol companies pay money to get featured, but there have to be others not so impressed with being associated with certain entertainers (I'm looking at you, Lil Wayne, with your bottle of NyQuil).

And now there are two official songs hyping parties at the Holiday Inn. A few years back, there was the Chingy/Snoop Dogg jam "Holidae Inn" and now Pitbull has "Hotel Room Service" all over the airwaves. I won't even link to its lyrics, they're so raunchy.

Poor Holiday Inn. Some of their hotels are pretty decent. But after hearing lyrics about drug and alcohol-fueled orgies happening there, I don't think I can ever stay at one again without wondering if that happened to be the party room the previous night. It send shivers up my spine just thinking about it. They don't deserve that type of reputation. Motel 8 does.

I'm A Gardener!

Well, sort of. I have a bunch of containers next to my back patio with random veggies and herbs. But they're doing beautifully and I haven't killed them yet! Today I was watering them and noticed this little guy:

This means I might get to enjoy the fruits of my labor, even if I only get one tomato to grow!
