To The Fourth Power

Before I get to this meme business I just want to state for the record that I am a little disappointed by the new Rascal Flatts CD. Now if you don't already know I am a HUGE fan (you can read about that HERE), so obviously I ran out first thing yesterday morning to Wal-Mart. I almost had a minor heart attack because where. were. the. new. CDs?! I couldn't find them anywhere. I tracked down a sales associate and asked.

Me: "Hi, do you have the new Rascal Flatts CD?"
Sales Guy: " haven't taken them out of the boxes yet." (rolls eyes)
Me: (holding back from strangling him) "Well, do you think I could have one?"
Sales Guy: (huge sigh) "I guess. Do you want the one with the free DVD or just the CD?"

Did that whole process need to take that long? I think not. Obviously I wanted one jackass. Do you mind getting a move on because I made this trip before work and now I could be running a little late due to my Rascal Flatts obsession kthanksbye.

Anyway, back to the CD. Of course Take Me There is the best song ever, so the CD isn't all that bad. I still get goosebumps every time I listen to it! Also, Bob That Head and Still Feels Good are highly recommended by yours truly. The rest? Eh. Their best CD in my opinion is still Me & My Gang that came out last year. Any other Rascal fans out there? What did you guys think of it?

karen said...

LOVE beauty & the geek!!!!!!! and haven't heard the new rascal flatts yet ("these days" is one of my all-time fave songs). in my experience, any cd i race to the store for with super high hopes is never good. sigh.

I heart the Parent Trap (the original, though Linds Lohan was pretty darn cute in the remake).

And I just DVR-ed Reaper (I love Kevin Smith) but haven't gotten a chance to watch it yet. I'm glad it has your approval!

DG said...

I am not a Rascal Flatt's fan but I know people that are and they are a-crazy! about them! Sorry it's a tad bit dissapointing... Keep listening and it may get better?

Michelle said...

don't worry i didn't delete anyone's comments... just some duplicates :)

and clink- i love both. i am a huge fan of lindsay lohan (although not as of late) so i like the new one a little better :)

Michelle said...

oh and libby - no i didn't :(
i was afraid of looking like too crazy of a fan, plus i was there at like 7 a.m.! lol

I don't know what tatertot casserole is, but damn if I don't want some right now.

molly said...

I'm so behind on my blog reading! Thank you for the shoutout yesterday. I'm totally upset about the Rascall Flats cd! I wanted to get it but now I'm not sure...

the superstar said...

Me and My Gang, as an album, is probably their best. However, my favorite RF songs are Skin and Mayberry so there's that... I haven't heard the new cd yet... the new single? Eh. It's alright but I'm starting to feel like the Rascal Flatts are repeating themselves a lot.

I bought the new Reba cd last week... the duet she does with the Rascal Flatts is pretty amazing:)

L Sass said...

All right, Mall of America!! I always like to visit when I'm home visiting my folks.

Also, how excited are you for the SATC movie???

Lisa said...

I heart you too!

And I could watch Mean Girls over and over and over again.

Princess Pointful said...

Mmmmm... cheesecake.

And boo to that sales associate. It's Wal-Mart, for Christ sake, not some little indie music store.

(brings me back to when I completed this meme... as, sadly enough, I once was a Wal-mart associate. In the toy department, at that, so we have something in common!)

elysa said...

love me some Rascal Flatts. Haven't gotten it yet though. Thanks for tagging me will give me something to blog about there are too many things going on right now to figure out which to blog about so an assignment is good.

random nerdy design tip/question - can you edit the CSS of blogger themes, if so I'd recommend doing a color or something on your links because they look exactly like your text. I only noticed bc I normally view your blog in a feed reader and then when I pop over to comment I noticed my name didn't look like a link. If you don't know what I'm talking about I can help send me a message.

Stephanie said...

Love Rascal Flatts but haven't listened to a new CD in a while! My best friend and I definitely got "I Love Rascal Flatts" t-shirts airbrushed, yes, I said AIRBRUSHED like 5 years ago!

Miss M. said...

I've been reading your blog for a few weeks now and once I saw your post about rascal flatts, I had to comment! I'm in love with all of their songs and am going to their concert here in MN in a month--super excited for it!

I love that you put Mall of America as a vacation spot--I suppose living right by it since it was built makes it less of a novelty to me, but it is pretty big!

stilettoheights said...

I am a meme junkie.....I may have to do this one.

also, I have never heard of "tater tot casserole" but it sounds like heaven.

cdp said...

Oh girl, I LOVE me some Hitch. I tried to get McD to watch it with me for the longest time and he never wanted to ( I think he assumed it was a total chick flick); but then he caught some of it on TV and wanted to watch the rest of it. Now he's watched it like four times. Cracks me up! Now whenever Usher comes on, he bites his lip and does the Q-tip dance.

ps lobster/crab? now I'm hungry. again. and I JUST had Oreos for breakfast. sigh . . .

kwarterlifecrisis said...

Ok I want all your favorite foods. Now. Mixed together. Thanks.

Katelin said...

ah, i love easton!

Marriage-101 said...

Rascal Flatts will be in my town on Saturday! I'm hoping I get to sit in my company's box to watch them. If not, I won't be going, because I is PO!
