Wow, quiet in here today. :P

OK, I am ready for Clay or Team Clay or whoever to give us some info. I just had a meeting at work, and like last year, they are asking for some dates for 2010 vacation time. They've given us a week to provide it. Ugh I hate this merry-go-round. I figure at this point, I'll say a week in late June (in the hopes of a tour)? And then try to move it around once we know something....hey, at least I already got March approved before the others' requests start piling in. :)

Let's hope!

This morning, on my drive in to work, I had the iPod on Clay Aiken - random. The Prayer from Broadway Cares came on and almost brought me to tears, it is so good. It's been a while since I heard that mp3. I think tonight, when the kids vacate the living room, I will dig out the DVD and enjoy it on the 40". :)

No problem. It's the announcement that has been moved to February, not the taping. Clay posted in the "Questions FROM Clay" thread at the OFC and discretely explained that, as well as giving an assignment. (All you have to do is go to the clack vaults Clay.)

Thanks, jmh123!

ETA: Ooh, I love it that he knows the difference between 'mode' and 'mean'. Me, I will have to look it up. :wub::hahaha:

In some instances for his questions, he could go to the FCA Timeline (although I didn't document his times he failed to appear in Spamalot).

Just sayin'.

Hee.

ETA: And if I had time, I'd count it all up for him.

I liked Jemock's answer to his question. Didn't understand a word she said, but it was hysterical. I'm glad she's still around.

I love when I hear something that Clay has sung that I haven't heard in a while. I got an mp3 player last year and downloaded a bunch of my cd's into it and I heard Give a Little Bit the other day. I'd forgotten that he'd even done that. He sounded so good. Another one that came up was What the World Needs Now, the mix with just Clay, Ruben, and Rickey. Wasn't crazy about Rickey's voice on that but the other two sounded wonderful.

Haven't had a chance to get to the OFC yet...just home from work and speaking of work...after 14 years as a part-time employee, I was offered full-time at the Library! :yahoo: My husband is retiring next year and even though he will be getting a good pension package...full-time with benefits will be welcome.

The only thing is that one of the requirements for full-time is that I have a Library Techincal Assistant degree so I have to go back to school...let me tell you, the idea of going back to school after 35 years is freaking me out a bit. But I can't afford to turn down a full-time job so I guess I will have to bite the bullet.

There is only college in the area that offers the classes so I guess I will be checking out the program to see what's what.

A celebration of Jan. 28, 2003, is underway in the new Carolina On My Mind blog entry: Clay Aiken Fans Remember 'Take'. Included are graphics (by Fountaindawg and Cotton), an adaptation of Fountaindawg's summary of years 2003-2009, montages by Aspiegirl, links to SueReu's Retro montages and the Year-at-a-Glance timelines on the Clay Aiken Kids site.

Come join the party! The blog is on Google and was linked at Facebook and Twitter before I started teaching. Hope you enjoy! :04:

Congratulations on your news, aikim! :snoopy:

I think the courses at our local college are also partly online but you still have some classroom work.

Checked their schedule and they only offer one or two classes a semester...first one is Fall, 2010.

Also talked to one of my co-workers who is taking classes and we may try and work it out so we can go together...that would be great! I think the nerves are starting to settle down.

Congrat Akim I think that being able to take 1 or 2 classes a semester is not terrible. But then again I have not been in school for almost 38 years. My husband is working on his Masters. Lots of time but being unemployed he has the time. He is caring a full load to be done in 15 months. Then hopefully will get a job!!!

When looking at the amount of time that Clay has been in concert, on TV, and other things it is amazing how busy he has been. That shows those people who say he is lazy that he has definately earned his fame.
