Sick, Sick, Sick

I get so irritated when I hear someone say, "I think I'm getting sick" because I know, inevitably, in a day or two, they will be sick*. When I think to myself, "Oh no, I think I'm getting a cold" I immediately begin drinking a lot of fluids, get more sleep, and basically think myself healthy. I am not a granola-crunching nutjob, but I really believe in mind over matter. 9 times out of 10, if you're feeling under the weather, its your body's way of telling you to slow down or up the nutrition.

So slow down and up the nutrition! And don't get sick! Quit calling out of work and bailing on friends! Stop missing out on life because you're laying in bed!

*I also don't think people should say they're sick unless they have a sore throat, a fever, or are vomiting. Otherwise, it's a cold.

Me Against The Music

So I just watched the Britney Spears episode of Glee. I don't normally watch the show even though I think the writing is very creative and witty. What I don't like about it, and have said before, is the singing. I was painfully reminded of this tonight when the first Britney song came on wasn't Britney singing! Sure, its fun to see a video and dance moves recreated, but I would much rather see Britney doing it! My favorites parts were Brittany S. Pierce and the real Britney Spears parts.

And now this will be another group of songs that people will buy and listen to that aren't the original artist. Why on earth would I ever ever ever want to hear a cover of I'm A Slave 3 U!?

I love Britney Spears. I think she is the definition of pop music and even though Glee once again brought it with great lines, I just can't support the random covers of her songs.

I'm So Excited

So y'all...I'm pretty excited for this book and, if you're cool like I am, you should preorder a signed copy from the very awesome Fountain Bookstore in Richmond, VA.

Orange Crush

I am addicted to Polyvore. I've been posting my outfits everyday for a few days now and it is so much fun! The following, though, is an outfit I made after watching Gossip Girl and completely falling in love with Blair's dress:

We Don't Care

Why I Dislike College Football:

I think its weird when someone cheers for a college team of where they did not attend. I went to a school with no football team (on purpose) so I have never had an allegiance to a team. Even my sister's school didn't have a team and neither of my parents went to college so there are no teams I would get excited about. I guess the closest I could get for a connection to a team is that my brother and my brother-in-law were/are in the Navy. Even then, it's not like they went to the academy.

My cousin and her husband went to VA Tech and even though they're almost 40, they really get into the team still. I don't understand it, though. It's not like they know any of the players still. At least when I cheer for the Redskins I can get excited every year about seeing Chris Cooley play. In college football you only see a player for four, maybe five years.

I also don't see the same excitement in college football that I do in professional football. The season just started and already its all about the same teams who won last year. Sure, the NFL always has the better teams, but if the Redskins have a good year, they can still make the playoffs and then the Superbowl. That rarely, if ever, happens in college.

Cheering for someone that I could essential sit next to in a class is not fun to me. I don't care about the BMOC I care about the professional athlete who is making millions of dollars and needs to prove his worth. I know most would disagree with that, but also, its not like those college kids don't get perks and gifts. *cough* Reggie Bush *cough* Actually, Reggie Bush is a great example: I don't even know what college he went to, but now that he plays for the Saints, he matters to me.

When I was deciding where to go to college, my back up school ended up being the University of VA and while on my tour there, the guide took us by the stadium. We couldn't go in because there was a game later or something, but I remember her telling us about game days and how everyone got dressed up and drank all day. It sounded like a lot of fun at the time, but I had also just come from four years of being in Marching Band and while I liked parts of that experience, I wanted to be far far away from it. College football=Marching Band to me and I want to be far far away from it.



P.S. Go, Redskins!
