“I’m Mike Rowe, and this is Dirty Jobs.”

I am in love with Mike Rowe. Can I get an amen?? He is sooooo hot aaaaannnd he doesn’t where a wedding ring. So I think I have found my soul mate!! Yeah, sure. He’s funny. I love watching Dirty jobs. Did you guys see the one where they went on a cruise?? That was awesome and I’ve only seen half of it. Danielle and Adam saw the whole thing and Adam just told me tonight that it was just on again!! I want like the season of it. If they have a season on DVD. Or all the seasons? What are they called? Anywho….I love him and his show.

I wrote out this whole list of things to write a blog about and I left it in my bible which I left at church. I can’t believe I left my bible at church. I played bass today and I put it in my case and grabbed my back pack of sheet music and guitar stand. And I walked out of church. Right out of church and didn’t even think about grabbing my bible. It was funny walking out of church because it was soooo windy. My guitar case (my big coffin case) was flying away from me. I was trying to hold it and walk to my car at the same time. So I left my bible there.

One of the things I remember on the list was the Jena 6 story. I am sooo sick of hearing of this already. And it’s not even been on news that much. I watched this video a couple weeks ago; probaly three, about the Jena 6. It was on myspace and there was just this one guy talking about how you (the viewer) should call your local station and have them put the story on. I didn’t think much of it. They said this had happened months ago; like in January. Now, here’s the story as I’ve learned it. (I could be wrong….but this is what I’ve heard.) Some school in Lousiana had some black kids go to the principal and ask if they could sit under a “white” tree. So the next day there was a couple nooses hanging from the “white” tree. One, or two kids (apparently white) are reprimanded for a “prank” as they call it.

Then, to my understanding, a black kid goes to a party and some white kids beat him up. (Now they have determined that this beating and the nooses have nothing to do with each other. Don’t ask me how but that is what CNN has said.) They have never said how bad his beating was, other than the black kid has to go to the hospital. The white kids are charged, I believe, with assault or something like it. A few days? weeks? later six black kids beat up a white boy and he has to go to the hospital. (I’ve seen the pictures and it doesn’t look pretty.) The black kids were beating him with their shoes, the news said. So they were charged with attempted murder. And now we are at present day and the trial is still in waiting.

It’s bothering the crap out of me because I’m sick of all the black people getting on the news and being like this is such a race issue. It sounds to me like it’s a couple of kids having a few issues. How typical. But every black person has to bring up race. Why is that?? I’m not racist. I’m really not……but…….it bothers me how black people have to bring up race with everything. And they always say, well, if you were black then you would understand. Whatever. It’s time to move on with your life. Move on……Just do it!! Do you think we still have issues with England?? Gosh, it kills me.

Let’s see, another thing I wrote down was, um, oh yeah; bible study. I’ve joined a bible study with church. A small group. It’s at the ministers house. He’s the leader with his wife. He said I was going to be the youngest person in their group. It’s doesn’t bother me. Not really. Too bad there’s not a singles group!! Hee, hee.
Well, I’m extremely tired and now mom and Danielle and Adam want to play cards. You know what? I hate work. I hate it, hate it, hate it!! But anywho. I love you ALL

“Stacie’s mom has got it going on…..”

This song is sooooo stuck in my head. I don’t know why. Well, I guess I do. I was checking my WAYN site ( http://www.member.wayn/heidichic ) and under favorite song I have that song listed. So…..the question is answered. Exciting stuff here.

Let’s see…I haven’t written in awhile. Saturday night me, mom, dad, Adam, Danielle, Candace and Nils went out to dinner. Talk about weirdness for me!! Seventh wheel. Wow. Who would’ve thunked it? It wasn’t awkward or anything. Nils is part of the family anyways. And he’s coming for Halloween again which makes him the best!!

I joined the choir at church, which isn’t new, but now I’m going to be in the Christmas play that the church is putting on. Auditions were crazy. I’ve never auditioned for anything like that before. I had to pick a song and a monologue (but I just found that out when I got there!!). I had Circle of Friends memorized so I brought that and they had a sheet to read from so I was good. I read first and then sang. The reading was easy. They said I showed the most enthusiasm. (Candy told me that’s like saying you have a great personality!) Then the singing came and I was sooo nervous that right up until the note started where your supposed to start singing I couldn’t think of the words to the song!! I remembered them and I sang it but I was horrible. At least to me. When I would look at my hand holding the microphone it was shaking! They said I did ok, which I took as ohmygosh what was she thinking?? Doesn’t matter though because I made it! And tonight is the first “table reading.” Looking forward to it.

Our church is starting small groups and I’ve been struggling with whether or not to join one since I’m soooo busy right now. On Wednesday nights I have choir practice and Tuesday nights are going to be for drama and when I play bass I have practice on Thursday nights. So my only nights open are Monday and Friday. I don’t want to do anything on Friday nights. So I have Monday night open. There’s only one group that meets late enough for me and that’s Anna and Marks. (preacher and his wife) So I signed up to go but it’s going to be crazy. I hope it all works out good. I think I’m the only “single” person there. A bunch of married couples. (I looked for a single group!! But nothing. )

Not sure the big move is going to happen. Judy is soooo unhappy with that job that I think she wants to quit. She certainly doesn’t want to move out there to be close to it. So the other day she went to a job interview in Orlando but she said that it was just a practice interview. Bobby told her to keep her options open, not to just throw that oppurtunity away. I guess we’ll see what happens with that. I think I’m kinda glad that were not moving. I was way excited in the begining but I’ve changed my mind a little since then. I’m just a commitment-phobe!

Anywho…..I love you ALL

“I’ll tell you what I want. What I really really want.”

On the way home from work today I heard this song on the radio. 105.1. Love that station sometimes. It brought back memories. It was funny, though, because I remembered the words to that song. Almost all of them. Crazy. Then, like a minute or two later a Killers song came on; Mr. Brightside. I couldn’t think of the words for the life of me. I was singing “Somebody called me……..I had a girlfriend……looked like a….. It was sad.

Did anybody watch the Emmy’s last night?? Me and mom watched part of them and then we switched to Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. The people were cops and the wife was in a wheelchair. I thought the house was nice but the counters were all short. That’s stupid for everyone else in the house. I mean, yeah, the handicapped girl can cook but noone else can now. How dumb is that??
Anywhoo…..the Emmy’s. When Ray Ramono was bleeped they showed the ceiling of the auditorium. WHY?!?!? Me and mom didn’t know what the heck was going on. Only until mom listened to the radio this morning did we find out that he had cussed and that was their way of not showing it. Yeah, that was great! What a bunch of crap!!

I have one more DVD disc of the Hills to watch before I finish the second season. Oh the joy. I can’t wait because then I can watch different DVD’s. I love you ALL
