not so BLECH/Happy New Year!!!!

So, today is a better day than yesterday, PRAISE GOD! I've come to the conclusion that on this last Friday in 2005--um, excuse me WHERE did the time go???--I'm going to decide, like I've HAD to do all year, to be happy! So, today I'm not SO BLECH! I'm pretty ok. I just came from lunch with my dad. I requested a "Dad & Tonyette" only lunch! Just because! It was good! We talked and I told him that it's all his fault that my life is so tough! LOL! Calm down! Before all you readers are like, "MY GOD, SHE DID WHAT?" I told him that I am 26 and life is tough and that he didn't tell me it would be! (I told my mother the same thing a few weeks ago!) It was nice! But I'm back here (at work, SHEESH!) trying to make this deadline for my team leader! I think I MIGHT be able to have something to give him by the end of the day! Gracious! But thank God for a job!

Also, before I forget, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Wow, it's almost 2006! I can't believe it! Whatever you do, be safe! and remember to thank God for one more year!!! As long as we live, as long as we are here on Earth, we have one more chance to make it--"it" being whatever--right! We have another opportunity to do what it is we are supposed to be doing! Go into 2006 with a plan of action!! I know that's what I will be doing, wherever I decide to go!

BLECH!!!!!!

You ever have one of those days? You know, those days were you wake up and you feel ok. Not great or piss poor, but ok. Like you can at least face the day without any mood-enhancing drugs (prescribed or not, your choice!) and you're ok with being "ok" because hey, you could be worse. But then as the day progresses, it just gets worse and worse! Well today, for me, is one of those days! To today, I say BLECH! I'm ready to go home and NOTHING for the next couple of hours! I don't want to be here at work. I will probably be bored at home. I don't feel like going out (because I don't really have any money) and it's rainy anyway! I won't feel like doing housework! I feel another BLECH coming on! BLECHHH! People keep asking me what I'm doing for New Year's Eve. I could go to church, but don't want to. I don't especially want to be home doing nothing but then again I'm not trying to be partying too hearty on NYE either! BLECH! Hey, maybe something will happen later that will cause my day to begin looking up. I don't know what could change that, but...here's to HOPE!

ANTM Cycle 5 Reunion

So, ok, last night I decided to watch the "where are they now" episode of ANTM for the most recent cycle! WHY did I do it? First of all, Tyra is so excited about her new talk show that she decided to have the reunion episode on the set of the Tyra Show! Um, BOOOOOOOO!!!!!! Like I said, I was expecting this to be like a "where are they now" type of show. but it was more like the Real World Reunion shows! I didn't really like that! Instead of just following the girls & seeing what they are doing now, Tyra decides to talk about their feelings since seeing the show and CRAP like that! Get outta here! It was SO wack! And I was even FURTHER upset about the fact that Nicole won! BOOOOOOO! I still cannot believe that she won! Ugh! She's high fashion? Really? Wow! I will say that seeing this show did, however, make me like Coryn more! LOL! She's funny! But maybe that's because I like ignorant stuff! But she's still very masculine looking! It's actually unbelievable! Oh well, I'm talking all this smack and I just KNOW that when the next Cycle starts up, I'll be right there watching!! Especially if the two sexiest-but-so-unavailable-to-me men are on there! Nigel is just yummy! 'Nuff said! But he's married so, he's obviously off limits! and I think that Jay Manuel aka Mr. Jay is cute!! But the platinum hair, eyeliner and shirts that look like they come from Express--NOT the one for men--tell me that he's off-limits to me as well! So, I think that the reason I watch ANTM is the same reason I loved Laguna Beach. Because so many times I watch, I'm like UGH, are you SERIOUS?
One last thing, Kristin Cavallari (from LB) will be co-hosting a show on Fox starting in January. And she was Punk'd! Um...was Laguna Beach that popular, that she became a celeb? Wow, didn't know!

Thought I had lots to say

A few times in the past few days, I really felt like I had something to say. I wanted to hurry here and post, but it seems I always got distracted! I'll try to remember and give sub-headings. for some reason, I think this will be a long one!

The Tyra Show
Um...Tyra Banks has a talk show? Now, I think she's COOL and all, but just COOL! I mean, would I watch her talk to guests for a hour? Doubtful! I keep trying to watch a whole hour but it never seems to happen! First of all, the topics she has, give me a break! And the runway...I mean, I GUESS that's cute but, um, no thanks! Oh, now I remember WHY I wanted to comment on the Tyra Show. Was ATTEMPTING to support her once again, and Vivica A. Fox came on there! I should have started boycotting her FROM THAT ALONE! So, I'm watching and Vivica's STILL talking about "Curtis" (aka 50 Cent!) PLEASE, Vivica, HONEY, let it go! She was talking about how she had to listen to "Strength, Courage and Wisdom" over and over to allow herself to become strong enough to never again do what she did with him. (whatever that meant!) Um, I'm not 50's number one fan or anything like but. I mean, he's cool! But seriously, Ms. Fox, LET IT GO! I'm pretty sure that he has! And it was actually YEARS ago! Wow! If I were still BITTER from a breakup and famous, I'd hope that my pride would SNATCH the better of me and not allow me to show my bittnerness on every possible medium! She's just the worst! I really am NOT a fan of hers! Never really was, but now it's just spilling over into disgust!

ANTM
Speaking of that DANG Tyra Banks...let's discuss America's Next Top Model. Um, Nicole? Seriously?? Nicole! She was the best this cycle had to offer? She was better than Bre? Um, I would have preferred Kim over Nicole! I would have even taken Coryn! This should show you how AGAINST Nicole I am! Ok, so that Coryn business was just a cry of desperation, but...seriously, Nicole? I don't think so! I didn't see the last episode, but I'm glad that I didn't because I would have been ANGRY! So...the list of ANTM winners is: Adrienne, Yoanna, Eva, Naima and now Nicole? Sheesh! Why do I even continue to watch this stuff? I should have just TURNED OFF the TV after Adrienne won!

MTB3 (Warning...if you watched Making the Band season 3 but you haven't learned who's in the band, you might wanna skip past this next blurb!)
So, I was outraged TWICE last week! Well, not so much outraged as shocked! First, Nicole then SHANNON! What??? Ok, so the band is Dawn--duh, Aubrey--duh, Aundrea--um, ok, I figured that, Wanita--this was kind of a shock, but sure!, and SHANNON! Seriously, that one threw me off. I couldn't even REMEMBER who she was from the last daggone episode! But other people seem to be ok with this choice (my sister, my dance ministry leader--who LOVED the show. Her entire FAMILY loved the show. She, her daughter AND her husband all watched it!) So I need to re-watch this episode and try to get a better understanding! Because I was QUITE surprised by this choice! Also, I'm so happy that Dominique DIDN'T make it!! It would have been a dumb fit! It would have been the same effect of having Alicia Keys join Destiny's Child. (not necessarily on the same level but the same result!)

Ok, I think that's it for now! If I think of anything else, I'll post again!

MJB

Anyone who really knows me, knows that I LOVE me some Mary J. Blige! Well, I was one of the sad ones who was almost upset because she got so happy and drama-free! Dang, where were the songs like "My Life" and "Reminisce" and "I'm Going Down"? But...tonight (for the third night in a row!) I'm up past 1am. I decided to turn on BET After Dark! I really like watching this show because for the most part, there are no FOOLISH videos or songs on here! Plus, everything is mellow! Good show, BET! (for a change! to me, best show since Midnight Love...the OLD Midnight Love!) So the first video tonight/this morning was Mary J.'s new video. Maybe it's called "Can't be without you" & the video features Terrence Howard! I already kind of liked the song, but seeing the video just solidified it for me! I really hope that everyone agrees with me that Mary may be BACK behind this one!! Ok, besides the fact that these days, Mary ALWAYS looks (at awards shows) like she wasn't sure of why she accepted the invitation, I LOVE her forever!! And I hope this--CD, Breakthrough--is the one to bring her back!
