Remembering

Selena.  15 years ago today, this diamond was taken from us far too soon.  I still love her music. 


Her legacy will continue to live on.

ONE (it was incredibly hard to pick) of my favorite songs from her...enjoy! 

Scratch that!!!  It won't let me embed any videos of Selena from YouTube, so I am just gonna list some of my favorite songs....it may get long so hold on to your boot straps.  Or socks, in case you aren't wearing any boots.  And since I am not wearing either, I will hold on to my ankles.  Ha!  Wait, that sounds....anyway!


In case you are wondering, because I know some of you are...No, I am not Mexican, or Latin, but I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas and I love all music!  Comprende?

dealing with disappointment

Disappointment to a noble soul


is what cold water is to burning metal;


it strengthens,


tempers,


intensifies,


but never destroys it.

Imma be...

Imma be on the next level
Imma be rocking over that bass treble
Imma be chillin' with my mutha mutha crew

Imma be riding my trike!


The Black Eyed Peas "Imma Be" is Layla and my favorite song at the moment!


You just can't trust a Houston Cop!

You just can't trust a Houston Cop.  (Sorry, Louis.  Okay, there is ONE you can trust.)  Other than that, you can't.  I got yet another mother effin ticket yesterday!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am over these slimy, crooked Houston Police officers.  Go fight REAL crime.  Get some sleezeballs off the streets.  Maybe start with...

YOURSELF!  Crooked ass m-effer! 


See that pretty, LARGE city...it needs protection.  Could you help a city out?

And not worry about drivers who turn TOO WIDE!!!!!!!!!!?????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!  D-Bag!

So now we know

Ricky Martin came out! He is gay.  Is that a shocker?  Or what???  Oh.em.gee.

I mean, now I can rest.


Via his official website, he says:

 "I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am."

I like the Menudo Ricky better anyway...but, this Ricky is the one who matters to these precious babes now.


Let people be who they are.  Why do these "outings" have to occur?  We are who we are.  One definition does not define us.  Just live.  And be happy people.

Manic Monday - 03.29.10

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations.


I may not reach them,


but I can look up and see their beauty,


believe in them,


and try to follow where they lead.

music is taking over my blog

no more wondering

I still don't have the reason
And you don't have the time
And it really makes me wonder
If I ever gave a fu*k about you

Give me something to believe in
Cause I don't believe in you anymore
I wonder if it even makes a difference to try
So this is goodbye

Makes Me Wonder - Maroon 5

You're Gone

I think I've already lost you
I think you're already gone
I think I'm finally scared now
You think I'm weak - but I think you're wrong

I think you're already leaving
Feels like your hand is on the door
I thought this place was an empire
But now I'm relaxed - I can't be sure

I think you're so mean - I think we should try
I think I could need - this in my life
I think I'm just scared - I think too much
I know this is wrong it's a problem I'm dealing

If you're gone - maybe it's time to go home
There's an awful lot of breathing room
But I can hardly move

If you're gone - baby you need to come home
Cuz there's a little bit of something me
In everything in you

I bet you're hard to get over
I bet the room just won't shine
I bet my hands I can stay here
I bet you need - more than you mind

If You're Gone - Match Box 20

Thanks dad!

Probably over 5 years ago, at this point.  My dad gave me this poem.  It was printed on a slice of a tree trunk.  And I still look at it everyday.  Thanks, dad.

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,


When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.


When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.


Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,


And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out.


Don't give up though the pace seems slow...
you may succeed with another blow.

Success is failure turned inside out...
the silver tint of the clouds of doubt.

And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far. 


So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit...
it's when things seem worst that you must not quit.
 ~ Unknown

Dad must have known this was gonna be my life motto, of sorts.  Just keep goin' girl.  Don't quit.  I won't.  But, there are lots of days where I want to...

All images, are, of course, from my favorite source

Feel how you feel

Feel how you feel about Obama.  Love him or hate him.  Regardless, I think this is a hilarious portrait.

Need You

Reaching for the phone cause, I can't fight it any more.


And I wonder if I ever cross your mind.


For me it happens all the time.


It's a quarter after one, I'm all alone and I need you now.


Said I wouldn't call but I lost all control and I need you now.


And I don't know how I can do without, I just need you now.


Lady Antebellum - Need You Now lyrics

for the LOVE of Corrie Bond

Now, looking at these photographs...







...I don't see how anyone could NOT usher spring in with a BIG smile!


Or a stunning smirk.  Just lovely.
