This Week.....

Rasanya inilah minggu terbaikku dalam beberapa bulan terakhir. Soalnya aku melakukan banyak hal melelahkan dan mengasyikkan bersama teman-teman lama dan baruku. Mereka semua pada resfect sama aku dan itu hal yang terpenting. Aku ikut banyak kegiatan di luar rumah termasuk keikutsertaan ku dalam organisasi PASKIBRA SMADA dan Klub Teater SMADA . PASKIBRA yang paling menyita waktuku dan kegiatan paling menyenangkan sehari penuh. Kami latihan baris- berbaris untuk acara tujuhbelasan dan aku berharap banget kalo aku bakal terpilih sebagai pengibar bendera nanti. Aku juga menunaikan puasa senin kamis pertamaku lho........ :)

Sometimes I shave my legs and sometimes I don’t
Sometimes I comb my hair and sometimes I won’t
Depend of how the wind blows I might even paint my toes
It really just depends on whatever feels good in my soul

I’m not the average girl from your video
And I ain’t built like a supermodel
But I learned to love myself unconditionally,
Because I am a queen

I not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what I’m wearing I will always be
India.Arie

When I look in the mirror and the only one there is me
Every freckle on my face is where it’s suppose to be
And I know my creator didn’t make no mistakes on me
My feet, my thighs, my Lips, my eyes, I’m loving what I see

I’m not the average girl from your video
And I ain’t built like a supermodel
But I learned to love myself unconditionally,
Because I am a queen

I not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what I’m wearing I will always be

Am I less of a lady if I don’t where panty hose
My momma said a lady ain’t what she wears but what she knows…
But I’ve drawn the conclusion, it’s all an illusion
Confusion’s the name of the game
A misconception, a vast deception,
Something got to change

Now don’t be offended this is all my opinion
Ain’t nothing that I’m saying law
This is a true confession
Of a life learned lesson
I was sent here to share with y'all
So get in when you fit in
Go on and shine
Clear your mind
Now’s the time
Put your salt on the shelf
Go on and love yourself
‘Cause everything’s gonna be alright

I’m not the average girl from your video
And I ain’t built like a supermodel
But I learned to love myself unconditionally,
Because I am a queen

I not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what I’m wearing I will always be
India.Arie

Keep your fancy drink, and your expensive minks
I don’t need that to have a good time
Keep your expensive cars and your caviar
All’s I need is my guitar

Keep your crystal and your pistol
I’d rather have a pretty piece of crystal
Don’t need you silicone, I prefer my own
What god gave me is just fine…

I’m not the average girl from your video
And I ain’t built like a supermodel
But I learned to love myself unconditionally,
Because I am a queen

I not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what I’m wearing I will always be

Song of the Week ( 26 July - 01 August 2010 )

ALL SUMMER LONG
performed by : Kid Rock

Kid Rock memberikan hiburan impresif yang penuh dengan semangat musim panas yang luar biasa. Dengan Genre Country Rock yang menggebu lagu ini membawa kita pada kenangan penuh gairah dimana semua hal terasa begitu menyenangkan pada musim panas 1989. Satu kata : Greatest Rock Song Ever !!!

Lirik :

It was 1989, my thoughts were short my hair was long
Caught somewhere between a boy and man
She was seventeen and she was far from in-between
It was summertime in Northern Michigan
Ahh Ahh Ahh
Ahh Ahh Ahh

Splashing through the sand bar

Talking by the campfire
It's the simple things in life, like when and where
We didn't have no internet
But man I never will forget
The way the moonlight shined upon her hair

And we were trying different things
We were smoking funny things
Making love out by the lake to our favorite song
Sipping whiskey out the bottle, not thinking 'bout tomorrow
Singing Sweet home Alabama all summer long
Singing Sweet home Alabama all summer long

Catching Walleye from the dock

Watching the waves roll off the rocks
She'll forever hold a spot inside my soul
We'd blister in the sun
We couldn't wait for night to come
To hit that sand and play some rock and roll

While we were trying different things

And we were smoking funny things
Making love out by the lake to our favorite song
Sipping whiskey out the bottle, not thinking 'bout tomorrow
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long

Now nothing seems as strange as when the leaves began to change

Or how we thought those days would never end
Sometimes I'll hear that song and I'll start to sing along
And think man I'd love to see that girl again

And we were trying different things
We were smoking funny things
Making love out by the lake to our favorite song
Sipping whiskey out the bottle, not thinking 'bout tomorrow
Singing Sweet home Alabama all summer long
Singing Sweet home Alabama all summer long

And we were trying different things
We were smoking funny things
Making love out by the lake to our favorite song
Sipping whiskey out the bottle, not thinking 'bout tomorrow
Singing Sweet home Alabama all summer long
Singing Sweet home Alabama all summer long

Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long

Blogger's Favorites -- Beth of Hello, Splendor + A Giveaway!

The only thing more fun that "meeting" kindred spirits online in the blogging world is finding out that they also happen to live in the same town as you...

Over the past year, I've had the chance to meet some of these fantastic hometown ladies, including the utterly fantastic Beth of Hello, Splendor, and I have to say, it makes me feel like my town is infinitely cooler because she resides here.

Beth is an all-around awesome chic. She's an interior designer, writer, blogger and jewelry designer...oh and she has a sweet baby boy, Maxton, too (so, clearly she's not a slacker). Further proof of her coolness? In addition to sharing her favorites with us this week, she's offered up a little giveaway to one of my readers -- that kickin' necklace above. See, so nice!

Just leave a comment on this post by next Thursday, August 5th at midnight, and I'll announce a winner on next week's blogger's favorites post.

So without further ado, herewith Beth's favorites. Enjoy and have a splendid weekend.

  • Being in Love: Being in love and having companionship is, quite simply, the best. I am lucky enough to be in love with, not one, but two men. My husband and son are the two people that make the earth spin for me… It’s hard to remember life without them.
  • Beetles: I’m a lover of beetles as an icon in fashion and d├ęcor. There is something so ancient and symbolic about the scarab. However, the real thing… I can do without those.
  • Stormy Days: The sound of thunder and rain always puts me at ease. When my husband and I lived in our loft we would just lie in bed and listen to the raindrops on our metal roof. Those are some of my best memories of blissful simplicity.
  • The Jersey Shore: Living in Philadelphia, I grew up going to Ocean City every weekend in the summers. Now it’s a place that I get to share with my own family. We recently started trekking up to the shore from Texas every year as our family trip and it’s truly my new happy place.
  • Sparkling Beverages: I love anything sparkling… champagne, sparking sangria, prosecco… I feel so fancy drinking it! And, I’m going to go ahead and slide beer into this category, as well. Not quite as fancy, but I do enjoy a good beer!

  • The Blogging Community: I have met so many amazing people since I have begun to blog. Some virtual friends turned real friends have brought new energy into my life! Connecting with people in this different way has added a whole new layer to my life. I have a whole new passion
  • Personalized Jewelry: I’m not a diamond kind of girl, but I love to have more casual personalized jewelry made. I recently ordered a necklace with my twitter tag @hellosplendor. I also commissioned a ring, by the amazing f. is for frank, with my son’s name Maxton.
  • An Evening Bath: As a new mom, I love to escape in the bathtub. An evening bubble bath is the one time that I get complete solitude. For me it’s necessary to get away, gather my thoughts, and gain perspective.
  • Chocolate and Bacon: Is there anything better?? The most delicious bacon and chocolate treat I’ve had so far was actually at my husband’s cousin’s restaurant in LA, called Animal. Their chocolate/bacon creation has even been featured on Food Network’s The Best Thing I Ever Ate. And let me tell you… It was.
  • Re-Design: As a professional interior designer, I find that I get to exercise creativity more in re-designing furniture and spaces then getting to start from scratch. There is always more of a challenge in creating something new from something old. Plus, it’s nice to give mother earth a little break by reuse.

Uganda's First Action Movie, 'Who Killed Captain Alex?'

What does “Uganda first action movie from Ramon film productions” mean, exactly? There’s just no telling, because that shit couldn’t have been written by someone that speaks English. Or maybe it was and they were in mid-stroke as the sentence went on, which is a theory that makes complete sense when you read what comes after all that Yoda backwards talk:

Film eno ekwata ku kibanda amajje gwe gaagoba mu kibuga ne gamulumba ne mu kyalo jjeyali ye kukumye.yatabuka bwebawamba muganda we natuka no kulumba basi ya majje eyali egumbye emabega wa police station. A wo we wafiira ne Captain Alex.atamanyibwa ani yamutta.kya mu waliriza okuba ne helicopter ya police n'akuba ekibuga.

It could be another language. It could be the language they speak in Uganda (Ugandinese? Ugandish?). But there’s a good chance it’s a result of that thing we said earlier. The stroke thing.



We’re going to have to say that this might be one of our most anticipated movies of the year. There was Toy Story 3, which was wonderful. Then there was Inception, which was also wonderful. Scott Pilgrim looks pretty damn good so far, but, and we’re just being honest here, it doesn’t look nearly as good as this movie with its people shooting guns while swinging off a thing, a helicopter that can destroy skyscrapers while soaring at the speed of light times infinity speed, and worse-than-internet-porn production values.
