Believe It Or Not...It's Just Me

Remember the show, The Greatest American Hero? don't? Well, here is how described the show *shaking head already*:

A special-ed teacher, an FBI agent, and a UFO? That's right, you've guessed it------- The Greatest American Hero. This show was first aired in 1981, and was both a comedy and a drama. A special "power suit" that only works on him is given to the teacher by the aliens, and he is paired up with the gumshoe FBI agent who keeps them both busy with his scenarios. The suit of "unearthly powers" gives the power of strength, flight, invisibilty, flames, telekenesis, vision of events without being there, protection from bullets and fire (if he remembers to cover his head!), and some others that he must figure out as well because; HE LOST THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT CAME WITH THE SUIT!

And would you believe I actually watched this show faithfully?!?!? I swear, it's a wonder I've done anything with my life, what with the junk I've filled my brain with over the years. LOL And then, of course, there's the theme song, which inexplicably was in my head this morning...of course, now's the part where I provide the lyrics in order to keep everybody with me:

Look at what's happened to me
I can't believe it myself
Suddenly I'm up on top of the world
It should have been somebody else
Believe it or not I'm walking on air
I never thought I could feel so free
Flying away on a wing and a prayer
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me

Just like the light of a new day
It hit me from out of the blue
Breaking me out of the spell I was in
Making all of my wishes come true
Believe it or not I'm walking on air
I never thought I could feel so free
Flying away on a wing and a prayer
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me

Ahhh...the bad ole days of television. This is the kind of show that makes reality TV seem palatable. Lawd. It IS a catchy song, though.

Anyway, with all of that said, we go on to my wrap-up of my trip to Miami...done in "I Believe" style.

I believe that I love Miami Beach, even if it's home to more fake breasts than your neighborhood KFC.

I believe that the Eden Roc, as lovely as it is, leaks like a baby's diaper when it rains.

I believe that Miami is definitely a city I would consider moving to...when I'm 55.

I believe that my best friend and I are even closer now than before I went to this conference, (LOL@the haters)

I believe that Destiny's Child did the right thing by breaking up. *dodging tomatoes*

I believe that Ms. Tee is one of the sweetest individuals you will ever be blessed to meet, and she has wayyyyy more energy in her left pinkie than I ever will have again during my lifetime. (Translation: I'm old.)

I believe that it's not a great idea to go to a darkened comedy club after working 18 hours a day for an entire week...I'm just saying that you could be sleepy and doze off during the comedian's set. *whistling*

I believe that next year's conference should still be in Miami, but wayyyyyyy closer to some shopping outlets, or even a Walgreen's. Yeesh.

I believe in midnight swimming.

I believe in the mighty, mighty Roll Call.

I believe in super raffles, even if I did only win a leather jacket that's too small for me. *kicking rocks and heading over to Ebay*

I believe that while Sony puts out some great CDs, the fact that they've put out a Mystikal's Greatest Hits CD troubles me immensely.

I believe that, with Michael getting acquitted and Phil re-emerging on the scene, California has had its fill of Jackson's monopolizing the headlines for quite a while.

I believe that grouper should be the official fish of Florida. STAT!

I believe that, with no offense to Mrs. Jones, me and Aquatica will always have a thing going on.

I believe in passing showers, but ummmm...Miami, whassup with the passing monsoons?!?!?

I believe that everyone, at some point in their lives, should have an intern that they can boss around for a few months one summer, just to make themselves feel important.

I believe in Robert Horry.

I believe in Chauncey Billups.

I believe in fatherhood.

I believe in friendships that span years...and decades.

I believe this conference was an unmitigated success.

I believe I need a few days off to recover.

I believe I'm going to take those days.

I believe...that believe it or not, it's just me.
