It was 14 years ago today, I married my Best Friend and Lover, my honey Ted. We were together 9 years before we got married, so it's Happy 23 years total. We've been and gone through so many times.. Many Good and sad/bad times. The sad & bad are much more bearable when you're doing it w/ someone who Loves you unconditionally, supports you and has your back. I do the same for honey Ted too! Thanks Babe for the 14 (23) years. I look forward to many more w you! This new Mix music from Meghan T. & John L really hits home for me and my honey Ted. You never know what will happen, so it's always good to Enjoy & Cherish the moments you have together. I look forward to several each day we are together. I hope tons more are coming!!
I finally had the chance to watch Jennifer Aniston in the movie 'Cake' last night. It is a well done character movie. I agree w/ some during Oscar time when they said the Oscars snubbed her for a nomination. She really did deserve at least a nomination. It's a role that has so many sub topics to her character, and her character grows.. I'm not sure how I would react in that same situation, and I hope I won't ever have to experience it. It's worth a Netflix pick for sure! I didin't realize Jennifer had that in her. I'm looking forward to seeing her in more beefy character movies. She's great in light- hearted/ funny movies, but she really does have the talent for a varitey of different types of movies. An Oscar could be in her future...
History was made today when the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that gay couples nationwide have the right to marry.Today this hashtag is right...
#LOVEWINS Everyone deserves to say 'I Do' to their honey! I said mine to my honey Ted14 years ago on 6/29 (together 9 years before that). Huey has been w/ us 13 of these years. Lots more happy than sad times. When it's sad, we have each other to get through it together, until we can't do it together anymore. Even then.. I believe we'll be together in spirit.
Ever had an Earworm? Not a worm in the ear. thank goodness, I'm not a bug fan. So when I heard about Earworms, I wasn't pleased w/ the name. I understand why it's called an 'Earworm' though. It's when a song gets trapped in your head and you just can't shake it. It can be one you like/love or one you don't, which is much harder to get out.
Well, my new Earworm is the new American Authors song 'Go Big Or Go Home'. I really like it. The past few days, I have woken up with the song in my head. I keep singing the 'Go Big Or Go Home' part, which is driving my honey Ted nuts. I'm also lyrically challenged, which makes an Earworm even worse, because you tend to sing the parts you know the lyrics too. Here's my Earworm w/ lyrics, incase the 'EW' spreads, you will be singing the right correctly. I can't promise I will though. Really.. Lyrically challenged.. it's very strange...
It being a casting call for Season 20 of the Bachelor! It's amazing this show has gone on so long. Do you remember this guy who had double the good times? Click here! If you have always wanted to be on this show. Here's the 411 for tomorrow night's casting call:
This morning peeps driving were driving me nuts. Turn signals were an option, cutting multi- lanes and cruising down the shoulder on 360, texting/ putting on makeup and other things while driving... Little things getting me all worked up on the M-day commute into work. I remembered this song by Shinedown, and it made me feel better, and turned off my potty mouth stressed out in traffic mode. It's amazing how the power of music can make you feel better. I wanted to share it w/ you, if you're having one of those days, or keep it for reserve. Then play one of your favorites and pass it to someone else who may need it. Remember.. YOU ROCK!!!
I had the pleasure of having a 'Girl Chat' w/ Colbie Caillat on turning 30, the proposal from her 'Lobster' Justin Young, wedding plans and the Big Show that she's bringing to ATX on Sunday, August 16th at the ACL Live @ the Moody Theater w/ her girls Christina Perri and Rachel Platten. Besides being 'Beautiful' and 'Talented', Colbie is 'GENUINE' as an artist and person. It's one of the reasons her newest album, 'Gypsy Heart' w/ the single 'Try' is so spectacular. Find out what I discovered about Coblie, and what she has discovered about herself the past several years of growing as an artist and person.
I was able to check out the private performance in the Mix Lounge today w/ ZZ WARD. She's AWESOME...talented, has fashion flair and just an all around Cool Chica. She also has the cutest doggie named 'Muddy Waters'. You can catch ZZ WARD at Emo's ATX on August 30th. I hope Erick (guitarist) is w/ her. He's AWESOME TOO!
Here's what's up on her new album/single...
With the ROT Rally kicking in tonight, and the Big Parade happening tomorrow night (6/12) , the Expo Center Rock'n over the weekend and lots of motorcycles all around town, please be careful when driving around. Both those w/ motorcylces and larger rides. The sign I saw on the road this morning said 'Share the Road and look twice for motorcyles.' Good advice.
There is that concern for safety with what happened a bit ago in Waco w/ biker gangs. Remember, most people who ride/bikers are just in it for the enjoyment of the ride, and many like to do that with others. Enjoyment..nothing more than that. I can admire that even if I don't know how to ride, and I am a bit scared to ride, since I'm not very coordinated. Years ago, when I was working at a Tampa/St. Petersburg,FL radio station, I got to do a glamour shot on a motorcycle. It was a lot of funl But I will admire the enjoyment of the ride from afar on the road in my car.
Everyone be mindful on the road of each other, and the weekend will be one of fun and enjoyment! Y'all Rock!
The adventure ends on the Big Screen w/ Katniss for Hunger Games: Mocking Jay Part 2! It hits theaters November 20th! I'm looking forward to it! Another year to celebrate my B- day (11/25) w/ my honey Ted & Katniss! The past few years I've had a Twilight & Hunger Games movie treat B-Days! Another movie series for Novembers need to be in the works soon..
Here's the 1st trailer to get ready for November..
You can hear this song from Wiz Khalifa & Charile Puth on Mix 94.7. When I hear it, my eyes tear up thinking of those who are no longer with me, but in a Happier/remembering good times way. I think of my Daddy Maurice and my Mama Betty and many others in my family who are no longer here with me. I do have nice memories that I hold in my mind and heart. I hang on to those times. It makes me feel better.
Think about something Happy you did with the one(s) this song makes you think about...
I got a heads up from Gerri N. about her daughter Gianna's 5th Annual Dog- Wash-O-Rama on Sunday. Gianna started this when she was 12. Here is the story behind it. If you have a Dirty Dog Gianna & friends will clean your Furry kiddo up and you will be helping other furry kiddos! Have a Happy & Safe Weekend!
A new site/page for a business venture has come out for the ATX by Desmond. Desmond is a middle school student who started his service in March on the weekends. Figuring he'll expand days during summer break. He wanted to make some $$ to save up for a car when he's old enough to drive. He decided to start his own (Franklin's) BBQ line waiting service. He will get up early and do the 5ish hour wait in line for Franklin's BBQ for a fee. When he gets close to the front, you take over for him. 5% of each fee he makes goes to the Austin Dog Rescue, because that's where he got his dog. HOW AWESOMELY BRILLIANT IS DESMOND!
Check out his page/site 'BBQ FAST PASS". He has gotten a lot of emails so he nicely asked to be patient w/ him. He's trying to get to everyone! DESMOND ROCKS!
