Spangle what banner with stars?

I've been going through all my blog posts in an effort to edit them. 
For some reason I didn't post this LAST February.  I thought I'd share it now.

First of all I'm going to give Chad a break here and mention that he was running on like 4 hours of sleep and then we were still going to bed pretty late-which means 10 PM at our house.

Wednesday night, while we were getting ready for bed, we had the Olympics on.  The medal ceremony for whichever Canadian won the womens' snowboard cross was on.  So while "Oh Canada" is playing in the background Chad stops mid-teethbrushing and asks me, "What song do they play when an American wins?"  The conversation from there pretty much went something like this:

Me: snorting and much eye rolling

Chad: what?

Me: Chad what's our National Anthem?

Chad: The National Anthem

Me: (laughing) No, what's the name of the song?

Chad: The National Anthem!

Me: (laughing even harder) It has a name.

Chad: My country tis of thee? He then proceeded to list off every patriotic song he can think of. 

Me: Laughing

Chad: laughing too because he's tired and can't think of the name of a song he's known his whole life.

Me: Can you sing it?

Because I'm a good wife, I pretty much laughed at him the whole time.  But he sang it, oh boy did he sing it!

Confessions of a closet Korean TV Fan

Every once in awhile, I'll randomly click on a show that Hulu suggests.  Don't ask me why Hulu suggested a show called "Pasta" to me.  It is a full on Korean Drama/Comedy/Romance.  I also happen to love it. 

We're talking the only words in English ever uttered on the show are "chef" and "idiot".  It's subtitled and half of the cultural nuances and details I miss entirely because well, I'm not Korean.  Besides the fact that it's neighbor to the north is run by a psychopath, I don't know a whole lot about the country of South Korea.  However, I do know that they make some good clean fun shows.  Seriously the romantic leads didn't even kiss on camera until the FINAL episode.  
So there you go.  I've wasted 20 hours of my life over the past few months watching a Korean dramady thingy.
