# 63: Clay Aiken for President!

Recommended Posts

I was at the supermarket this afternoon and heard the opening piano chords of Without You and wondered why the old Harry Nilsson one is always played, until the first vocal note proclaimed Clay and stopped me in my tracks. Every note was spectacular. The voice was strong and beautiful. His Without You has improved with age, and I loved it in the first place. He sells it to the extent that I was concerned for his life there at the end.

So, aikim -- you didn't stalk him? [/jk]

And now, he's in Canada...new tweet:

Get it together America! I want cool, see-through money!!pic.twitter.com/PneuXD8u

ETA: keepingfaith! Yes! I heard Without You (via CD) in my car today. It still floors me. And then, I heard Here You Come Again, and I melted. That song is soooooooooooo good.

I now have a ton of new clothes -- weight loss will do that to you! And I have my outfit for the Gala. This is the first time in a LONG time that I'll feel comfortable wearing a dress!

I thought the purple in our 5s was pretty cool, and the peach color in our 10s... apparently it's not enough for him. LOL

A lot but ended with a #canadian montage! RT:@ncwannabe: @gityyc What did Clay sing?”

I think she means medley of songs by Canadian artists.

For those of you spiritual...could you please pray for my young friend Doug. His wife Diana gave birth to their first child Friday night, but his wife suffered complications and passed away yesterday. I can't even imagine gaining a child and losing a spouse in 24 hours...

ldyjocelyn That is so sad. I can't even begin to imagine something so tragic happening to a young couple. I am so sorry.

Thanks guys. This friend was a former student worker of ours at the library, but so good that we were sad to see him graduate. He's now been working for libraries, and hopes to get his library degree someday. His wife was only 28, which is WAY too young.

Stealing again from the CH, this time from shadylil:

evelyn, when my husband and I went to DC two years ago, we used this company:

On Board DC Tours

I think it was the most expensive tour, but it was also in an air conditioned bus the entire time (which was a good thing, as DC was having a heat wave when we were there!). Also, the starting point is very close to the JW Marriott, I believe!

At times like this I wish I could let go and make my tweets public, but since I can't....

If he really wants to, he can easily find Downton Abbey on the internet. Season 3, right now in fact. It started on September 16th in the UK and there's no shortage of ways of seeing it. I do think the whole PBS line was stupid to say, but I don't really believe it either.
