Sure, you haven't heard of her, but you will one day. So here is your chance to get a sneak peak. You can log on to her website by clicking on "The Amazingly Gifted Colby Bell" to the right under Say What?!?
Do yourself a favor, log on, listen to her song and then you can say "I was listening to her before she won her first Grammy."

I hear you thinking "why is she complaining. everyone goes through this. just shut up already Ms. Whiny McWhinesalot," but really the bleh is taking control. Let me share some examples...I still have not unpacked from Thanksgiving (which was great fun by the way) so my clothes, shoes, etc. are just all over the floor, dresser, and bathroom. Speaking of bathrooms, they are filthy - heck, the whole house is filthy - and it bothers me, but I'm just too bleh to do anything about it. We need to go grocery shopping, but I just don't care. Instead, I choose to eat random mixes of crap and get fat. Seriously, I ate popcorn with 1/4 of a bag of shredded cheddar cheese poured over it for dinner last night. Odd, but filling. I need to regain focus on my kick-butt and lose weight program, but instead I just eat and sleep. So, I'm slowly but surely packing on the winter weight. Winter weight that I know is coming, and that I know I need to avoid, and that I know is making me more bleh but it's like a freight train I can't stop. Oh, and let's not even talk about work and how I need to really focus there because December, she's a bitch who's ready to fight and she's calling my name, but I'm all bleh, money who needs it.
And now I'm too bleh to try and wrap this up and make it sound less whiny and pathetic. So, there you go. I'm off to sleep for 10 hours, maybe that will help. Probably not.
*SAD is "seasonal affective disorder" for those of you not in the know.

An email from my sister:
just wanted to let you know what children today can, or should i say CANNOT "be exposed to." our science teachers showed the students "An Inconvenient Truth" and have been discussing global warming, etc. There is a talk radio station that is now attacking our school....and most recently they have given out our principal's home phone number on the air and encouraged parents to call her and let her know how outraged they are that we're showing political movies....how sad-even adults are so ignorant!
It is sad. I don't know why people are so afraid of knowledge! I mean, the whole reason we go to school is to learn. Learning means hearing all points of view - not just one, but many. I know there is some debate about the truthiness of An Inconvenient Truth, but that would be a great way to start a good science discussion in class. I think it's a great way to get teenagers thinking beyond themselves and their spheres of the world. And when did saving the environment become a bad thing? Shouldn't we want to figure out how to preserve this earth we've been given?
Why do environmentalists have to be LEFT and why is the RIGHT so scared of knowledge?

That's how it's going to be, however much people may grumble.
I think it was very appropriate for her reign, as people did grumble - all the way until her beheading. I admire her "kiss my ass" attitude. And so, a name for a blog.
