to be ahead of your time!
I relate to Emma Stone’s character “Skeeter” a lot: We both are writers, we both interview women, we both are unmarried, we both have bad hair days, we both care about certain social causes (and sometimes worry about what our female counterparts are doing!), we’ve both witnessed boys do and say dumb things, but most of all, we both are awesome!
It ain’t a crime
to be ahead of your time!
is a coward who’s show should burn!
A STERN sonnet about a miserable man
This man is awful.
His “program” filth.
I’ve never watched it.
And never will.
Howard could stand to cut his hair.
Or maybe he should use some Nair.
That would burn his scalp of sin.
Sorry, hope ya’ll know I’m just JOKin’
But seriously words cannot express
How much Stern is a pathetic mess
I HATE that some consider him a star
when he takes freedom of speech WAY. TOO. FAR.
But Howard, wouldn’t it be fun.
If your story turned out like that of the Prodigal Son?
Repentance is real ya’ll; even for the vilest of sinners.
That’s what life is all about!
Jason Mraz and Travie McCoy are both huge sources of inspiration, hope, humor, and joy for me. They are both so human and down to earth. And SOOOOO unbelievably talented. Lyrically, musically, stylistically, free-styling, song-writing, collaborating and solo work: you name it-they’ve got it! Not only that, but from what I have read and seen about them, they both seem like pretty decent guys too. And I know I’ve said this like 10x before, but Mr. Mraz is from Virginia, just like me! Seriously, these guys bring me joy through their art. Don’t want to get my hopes up, but I would love to meet them just to tell them as much.
Here’s my take on one of JM’s songs.
And here’s me doing my own “interpretation” of one of TM’s songs.
Thank you guys.
This is my message in a bottle,
I hope that you receive it
If it washes up at your feet then open it and read it…
MYTH vs. experience
“That original feeling never went away…”
(this is one of Ms. Bedingfield’s best lyrics EVER
in my informed and intelligent opinion)
Plan B looks like, domino’s pizza in the candlelight
(this is one of the cutest songs of ALL TIME!)
“The best laid paid of mice and men often go awry.”
(read here about my genius connection to this famous American novel!)
1) When have your original plans worked out?
2) When have you needed to move to another letter in the alphabet?
figuratively and/or literally
“It might be our universities, our outfits, our major life decisions, our relationships, our hairstyles, our blog posts, our careers, or our preferred choice of toothbrush color, but whatever it is, if it didn’t work out the first time, KEEP TRYING TIL YOU GET THE PERFECT LETTER!”
but only because I choose to have responsibilities.
I believe in accepting legitimate criticism and also in getting out of my comfort zone, but if anyone ever tries to force or pressure me into anything in a manner or form with which I am not comfortable in any way at all…
figuratively AND literally…
But as is always the case, I am kind and civil about this. Ain’t no James Dean, “rebel without a cause” thing going on here. This is NOT me being selfish or evading (legitimate) responsibility in any way at all.
I desire to work hard and stretch myself to serve others.
Still though. The number 1 person on my list is ME!
and for that I will NEVER apologize…
1) What responsibilities do you choose to have?
2) What is your LINE OF PROPRIETY when it comes to responsibility?
“I don’t answer to ANYBODY. And it’s a lovely, LOVELY feeling…”

1) Line of Propriety
2) Sunburn stuff
3) Bad hair day means good writing day!
4) Bragging? Guilty. YOU WOULD TOO!
Oh, and by the way, I was singing a version of a John Mayer song (SHOCKING, right?)….
The song is VERY interesting. The melody/guitar itself is hauntingly beautiful, but the words are contradicting the story-teller’s true convictions (unreliable narrators are FASCINATING). You see, Johnny is lonely and trying to convince himself that he can engage in self-destructive behaviors (drugs, women, etc.) and it won’t effect him. Sad.
Have done my own version of “Who Says.” And I will DEFINITELY include it soon…
But Back to the Benjamins:
Laughing all the way to the bank…
PS. The check wasn’t for a ton. And also it will not even begin to cover the costs of medical expenses I will incur from the pending thunderbolt of blasphemy I will shortly receive due to my comparing myself to Brad Paisley.
