What's In Your Wallet?

Well, I don't know about you guys, but I was just issued a CapitalOne card. Wahoo for me getting approved, right? Now I don't have to worry about a band of Norsemen coming and beating me up while yelling Viking curses, because I have the protection of a CapitalOne credit card. I feel safe. Whooooo. :) haha

As the audition for American Idol nears, I'm actually getting a bit nervous. I wasn't nervous at ALL last season. But I guess I'm anxious this time because I've actually prepared for it. I've spent a couple months working a few songs up to snuff, and I'm taking my looks seriously, which is big for me. Maybe all of the work I've put in will pay off. Maybe not. We shall see in less than 2 weeks (ACH!!). It's weird to think that I'm taking part of such a huge phenomenon. And for all of you naysayers, well... You can't deny that it's a phenomenon. It's enormous. I'm not really all American Idol gungho myself, but I appreciate a massive world-changing reality show when I recognize one.

Along those lines, I guess I should mention that the media and I have never really gotten along. I've always scoffed at magazines like People, OK!, and other shallow magazines of that sort. You know the type. I see something like that and think, "Well, there's a poor tree gone to waste." I'm afraid that if I were ever to become famous for anything other than music, I'd show up in the tabloids as having attacked a car with an umbrella or punching a papparazzo. I just have this inkling that's what would happen. So why am I doing American Idol, you ask? Well, for me, singing is not about the fame. It's about doing what I love. I think that if I were singing for a career I could maybe handle the constant attention, the constant flashing of cameras when I was outside the confines of my house, because music works as therapy for me. It'd probably bug the crap out of me for people to follow my every move in hopes of getting that "money shot," but with my music, I hope I'd be able to take it with a grain of salt. I might try a little intelligent verbal banter laced with thorns with the people trying to take my picture, but... other than that I think I'd be a good girl. :)

On to other places in my life. Since I got canned I've had a bit of time to myself (when I wasn't out searching desperately for a job, that is). This evening, about 3 hours ago I had a brain blast. If you are one of those people that knows me really well, you know that I get a lot of crazy ideas that spawn novel ideas. Well, I had another one of those moments, and I think I've actually come up with something worth writing. Think Treasure Island meets Star Wars meets the feudal era. haha I know, it sounds absurd, but... I'm actually excited about it. I'll write more about it when I get more into the story. It's flushing out nicely, though, thus far.

On another note... I am in love with my LG Chocolate phone. :) It's so COOL (Excuse me while I adjust my glasses further up my nose and snort an Urkel-esque snort.)!! I'm even making my own ringtones, which is even cooler (Once again, glasses + snort.)! Now I just have to wait until my LG USB Port arrives (I paid $0.89 for it. teehee Gotta love Amazon.) so I can load them from my computer and onto my phone. It's pretty choice.

Anyways, I think that about covers it. It's around 4:30AM on the 31st of July (Holy CRAP! July is finished as of midnight TONIGHT!!!), and I strangely am nowhere close to tired. If anything I'm a bit hyper. This no work thing has gotten my body clock all messed up. I can't stand that. Anybody have a job for me???

Boo.

"Purple Things"

Exercise #28: "Purple Things"
What things are purple? Make a list.

You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:



Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…
