Spawning the next generation of evil genius, one misadventure at a time

Blogger Idol AND Theme Thursday ….

So…how cool is this – two birds with one stone people!?!?  Gotta love when the stars align for a minute or two….

Today the #ThemeThursday’s theme : Fall.  Or Autumn.  Or the time before winter.  Or the time after hotter then the fires of hell summer.  Or as it’s known in our lair – snowboard prep season.

OR ….

TIme to Audition for BLOGGER IDOL!

Yes, you read that correctly.  Blogger Idol.  Blogger Idol is this amazing contest where bloggers new and old throw in their hats and 12 are selected to blog until the DEATH.  No…not really.  But there’s an elimination contest and over the course of 12 weeks of blogging assignments a winner is chosen and amazing prizes are awarded (click here to see the LIST!).  But more than that – you learn more about some seriously wonderful bloggers.  I found blogs I hadn’t yet discovered and now follow.  The judges …. other bloggers.

Now…besides Blogger Idol auditions….

More of the many reason fall is my favorite season….(well…it was until I learned to snowboard….now it’s tied with winter) warm soups for dinner, bread baking (as long as I can find a good GF recipe), BACK TO SCHOOL for the spawn, the gorgeous colors of the trees along the river, and football for Eldest Spawn.  I admit it – until he started playing, I was not too interested in professional football.  I grew up in Iowa – where you cheer for the Hawkeyes or the Cyclones.  Or maybe the Panthers.  So college football held my interest but not professional.  Now…8th grade football has me engrossed in everything from well, 8th grade to the Packers.  And even more…I love the fun family and friend gatherings to ‘watch’ football (READ : eat whatever is brought).  And running.  I love to run outside in the fall.  The crisp air.  The clear roads.  The pretty trees to distract me from wanting to die before I get to the end of my route.

So go check out other awesome posts for #ThemeThursdsay hosted by the amazing Something Clever 2.0, The Next Step, The Insomniac’s Dream, and Mom With Her Running Shoes On.

    Hmm. I do like football FOOD. Just not football (see rant tomorrow).

  2. I’m with Jenn. Beer and food. But no games. Except the Super Bowl because commercials.

    I auditioned for Blogger Idol also. Good luck!

  3. beer, food and HOKIE football!! On SATURDAYS! And some thursday nights. which kind of suck because I can’t stay up late enough to watch anymore.

  4. I love running in the fall too. The weather is perfect!

    I’m super excited for Animal to play football. I love Football. It’s tremendous athletic prowess, tight pants (admittedly that’s not good for all the players) and it’s like a game of chess where the pieces have a mind of their own. Also, the food and drinking before noon being totally acceptable. It’s too much good stuff.

    Good luck at blogger idol, sounds fun.

  5. I’ve auditioned this year. I’m chewing my nails and quite possibly peeing my pants.

    As for football, meh. I am a student at UNLV. Unfortunately our team sucks goats so college football is out for me. NFL? I sorta follow but don’t really care. Now if you want to start talking hockey then you have my attention. But the food? Yes. Please bring on the football food. Nachos anyone?
