Does Kenny Chesney look like George Costanza?

Fellow friends and neighbors...
A while back Matt tried to convince me that Kenny Chesney looks like Jason Alexander from Seinfeld. My first reaction was to ask if he was on crack. But then he showed me these two pictures (as seen above) and I couldn't help but agree with him a tad. I would have never made the connection if it weren't for him. Usually I see Kenny in his Cowboy hat, cutoff t-shirt, and tight, tight like a tiger (<-Say with a Goldmember accent), jeans. How does he get in those? Anyway, I want to get your opinion. So my question of the week (should I start having this on a consistent basis??...I'll think about it.) is does Kenny Chesney look like George Costanza??

Feed The Obsession!

(This is a email I sent out to our ward book club. I thought it was pretty good, so I'm going to post it here. Enjoy!)

My name is Courtney Shelby, and I am a Twilight addict. Yes, I am willing to admit my crazy obsession. Yet, you know what I say… give into it! If you periodically throughout the day wonder about our beloved Bedward (or maybe you’re more of a Jalice or Rosamette fan) then I have the perfect Twilight fix for you. I’ve put together my Top 5 Twilight Saga websites.

1) Stephenie Meyer’s Personal Website:
The best way to get accurate information is to go straight to the source. Stephenie is so open with her fan base I feel as if she is one of my good buddies. There’s a plethora of info on her site. She answers frequently asked questions, gives info on upcoming projects, has playlists for each book, etc… I would also suggest youtubing her (make sure you get the spelling right in her name) and listening to some interviews. She’s actually really funny.

2)The Twilight Lexicon
This site has been here from the beginning, before the Twilight craze began. It is the only fan site that is Stephenie Meyer endorsed. Don’t let the cheesy graphics fool you. I initially was turned off by the graphics on my first trip over to the lexicon, but later realized through other message boards and twilight articles that this is the mother site of Twilight sites. From the home page click on the News Blog link and that page will give you all sorts of Twilight goodness! One of my favorite areas on the site is Personal Correspondence. This is found on the News Blog, on the far right, under The Lexicon (or you can just click on the link). Here, Stephenie answers many of the frequently asked questions about Twiight.

3)Twilight Series Theories!
I love this site! This is where you can find the podcast. This site is great because like the Lexicon it gives you all the news updates on everything Twilight. But what I really like about it is all their discussions are about theories you may have about the books. Especially theories you may have about what is going to happen in the fourth book. Plus, I think this site is well organized and easy to find what you’re looking for. You can also find the podcast on iTunes. Just search for Twilight Series Theories and is should pop up. Two sisters from Texas do the podcast and they’re really funny. Plus they are older and have kids, which is nice, so it’s not all about how Edward is SOOO hot!!

4)Twilight Moms aka TM’s
I’m just going to let you click on this site and read their description of the site because it is hilarious and my description wouldn’t do it justice. Enjoy!

5) The Twilight Guy!
This site isn’t necessarily informative, it’s more for a good laugh. I love all the photo shop this kid does with his face. So funny!
