Not Fair

When I was younger I wanted to be famous, as I am sure most of my readers would agree that they experienced the same desires.  The idea of wearing beautiful clothes, being in magazines, making lots of money, handsome men, blah blah blah, were all a big draw for me.  Later I realized that in exchange for this fame many celebrities have hard love lifes, drug addictions, scary stalkers, and no privacy so I decided to change careers (well that and that I didn't have any idea how I would actually be famous!)

Well now that I am a bit older I have decided to come back to my original idea and try to be famous once again.  My reason...

Anne Hathaway was paid $750,000 to wear jewelry by Tiffany & Co at the Oscars and Gwyneth Paltrow was paid $500,000 to wear some stunning Louis Vuitton jewelry.

I have decided this is painfully unfair.  Does anyone want to dress me up in a Dior dress, cover me with some bling, and pay me some cash? Hey I would even accept $100,000.

What did you guys think of the Oscars last night?  Were you happy with the results?

Have a Great Weekend

I am curious if anyone else has this problem.  Paul insists on making his side of the bed with his pjs tucked under his pillow (at least when he decides to help make the bed). This sounds good in theory, but somehow he manages to just throw it in the corner of the bed and even though the bed is made it ends up looking like a big mess. Sometimes I dream that my bed looks like this
or this

 but usually it looks a lot like this  (if you imagine pjs sticking out) this is not my actual bed.

I am not sure why he can't just take off his pjs and put them away in a dresser. I realize that I need to pick my battles so I try to let this one go. So my question is...

"What weird things does your spouse or loved one do?"

Paul also can't seem to figure out where our laundry bins are. I am just saying.

Have a great weekend. I am heading off to my college class at Northern Virginia Community College to see my students final presentations. This class is called Overview of the Recording Industry. We have a good time researching and doing case studies on artists like Lady Gaga, Dave Matthews Band, Radiohead, the Beatles, Michael Jackson, Justin Beiber, and many more. Tonight my students are presenting me with their press kits. I am excited to see what they have created.

For the most part people talk about having OCD as a negative thing. But check out this blog of Things Organized Neatly. Definate OCD but it sure looks nice.

PS. Happy Birthday Aaron! I think you rock even if you did once throw raw chicken at my face.

PSS. The canker sore is almost gone. And I woke up today with another cold. Hmmm...I think I want a new face. Maybe one like this....

I have a Canker Sore

At first I wrote that I have a Cancer Sore, which is not true so I had to google how to spell canker. What a weird looking word. Just had to make sure I didn't get lots of comments about me having cancer, sorry everyone just canker.

Anyways, this blasted sore is bigger and more painful than any sore I have ever had. What do you guys recommend to make it stop hurting? My friends made me put salt on it, but I am now thinking that they were just trying to make me squirm and cry. I am not sure my sore is any better after covering it with salt-all I know is that it really hurt. Paul made me put Neosporin in my mouth. Does anyone have something that will stop the pain immediately so that I can eat yummy citrus foods?

Beautiful February Day

I don't want to hurt the feelings of those that live back home in freezing Utah, but today it will be 70 F outside.  I am sorry. In your name I am going to take my Madsen Cargo Bike out to the store and around the town. Maybe I will even go for a run (I say that as a maybe cause if you know me you know how badly I hate running, so more realistically I will go for a brisk walk).  I am hoping this weather means that it will officially become springtime here in Virginia.  I can not wait for this...
The National Cherry Blossom Festival March 26-April 10.

Hope you guys have a great weekend.  I am going to go to a movie tomorrow morning. Any suggestions?

PS.  What are your feelings on Lady Gaga's new song "Born This Way"

Can we say "Express Yourself" by Madonna.  I was pretty shocked when I heard it.  I think that is wrong and sounds like plagiarism to me. I realize the lyrics and melody are different, which are the two things that can be copy written, but it just sounds so much like the song that maybe it is just unethical.  Maybe Lady Gaga missed that lecture in school.  It doesn't take as much talent to copy someone else. Read this article about the song. It contains a mash-up of the two songs (for all your Gleeks out there).

Living in a Loft

I have always wanted to live a cool artsy loft and run a music studio out in the downstairs.  Here are some cool photos of some cool lofts. My only request is that it has to have a yard for the dogs cause I am not going to walk them every time they have to do their business.  Don't you just love this bedroom? Definitely need tall ceilings to do this.  These cool photos are from decorology blog.

Great dining/kitchen area!
