A little something....

A quote for especially for today:
"The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate. -Oprah Winfrey"

It's been a busy week. In fact, this quarter has been entirely too hectic for my taste, but the pending final quarter that is looming over my head prevents me from yielding to my subtle tendency to slack off. That said, I have a few things to share with my loving audience...First, two CDs that are MUST HAVES. Norah Jones, "Not Too Late;" perhaps, my favorite CD of hers.

Best songs: 1. Not Too Late 2. The Sun Doesn't Like You 3. Not My Friend

Lucinda Williams, "West." It's gotten kick ass reviews and is amazing. In fact, GF and I are going to see her at the Tabernacle here in Atlanta on March 17...if the show is not sold out, RUN and get tickets. The song I am playing over and over right now...#2, Mama You Sweet and #12, Words. The ENTIRE CD is rockin, however.

The second recommendation I have to share is a new beverage by Coke. Enviga... The green tea is KICK ASS...a little fizz and not too sweet, plus it claims to burn calories....but I seriously doubt that it will kill the pepperoni pizza and red wine I had last night while watching the movie, "In the Bedroom." If you haven't seen it, RENT IT. I love Sissy Spacek; she is truly an amazing actor.

That's about all I have for today. Maybe more later. Probably not, but a girl can dream.

In The Bedroom is one of my favorite films. I think it captured the essence and shock of grief unlike most films. The horrible ordinary. The energy drain of loss. It's surreal and beautiful and tragic.

Anyway - glad you liked it, too. MUCH better than Brokeback!

I think that I was on a marketing test panel for that enviga drink. We were rating the copy writing, as I recall - and the name. I'm not sure if Enviga was a choice. Maybe it was. All I know is that I got I think $120 for an hour of giving my opinion. Not bad. I'll give it a try - sounds like a refreshing way to burn energy and to get a healthy boost of calcium and anti-oxygenating green tea, perfect for a well rounded, healthy lifestyle. Or something like that. And I can't wait to own a copy of Lucinda Williams' new album. I hear it's great.
