Oh that was your girl? I thought I recognized her

There's a song that's been on the radio a bit lately that I'm loving.  It's actually ridiculous, the chorus goes like this:
Oh Baby,
I Be Stuck To You,
Like Glue Baby,
Wanna Spend It All On You,
My Room Is The G Spot,
Call Me Mr. Flintstone,
I Can Make Your Bed Rock
I-I-I I Can Make Your Bed Rock
I-I-I I Can Make Your Bed Rock Girl
I-I-I I Can Make Your Bed Rock
I-I-I I Can Make Your Bed Rock

Silly, right? But the thing is, I love it.  It's pop-rap (or what I call pop-rap), and I cannot get enough of it.  And really, it's full of pick-up lines, ones that are just plain funny (and brilliant):

I Like The Way You Walk, And If You Walking My Way,
I'm That Red Bull, Now Let's Fly Away,
Let's Buy A Place, With All Kind Of Space,
I Let You Be The Judge, And I’m The Case,

or here:

I Love Ya Sushi Roll, Hotter Than Wasabi,
I Race For Your Love,
Shake And Bake Ricky Bobby

I mean, Ricky Bobby?? That's CLASSIC!

Also, the title of the post is my favorite part of the song, it's about half way through, if you wanted to know.  Here's a youtube of it (warning: Explicit Lyrics...)

New York

Georgia loves the song Empire State of Mind by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys, and here's a clip of her singing it in the car this morning. The hand up by her mouth is her microphone (where on Earth did she learn that?).

Cookies for a soccer game tomorrow

I also made chocolate chip ones and peanut butter ones...

Bubbly Monday

I'm having one of those days at work where there's a lot to do, but not a lot of important things to do, so I'm (obviously) not doing the lesser-importance stuff, and instead listening to music, looking at jewelry online, and blogging.  Here is a list for you:

1. I am having quite the love for a song called "Hold my Hand" by Sean Paul featuring Keri Hilson.  It's quite reggae-esque, and while I am not a fan of the ganja (that means marajuana folks, I'm learning vocab today), I do enjoy reggae, and this song is a perfect mix of that and pop.  I can't seem to stop listening to it long enough to hear the complete:

2. Norah Jones album.  I bought it on itunes and haven't listened to the whole thing yet.  It is on my list of things to do today though, so I'm sure I'll get to it.

3. I've been Etsy-ing a lot today, and having a blast doing so.  I've fallen in love with quite a few things, most of them being necklaces made of leather and some form of jewel (I know you aren't surprised seeing as how I've blogged about leather and pearl jewelry before), and like always, have been Sundance Catalog looking, too.  Actually, there's some cool stuff in the Sundance catalog (like always) most of it involving the myriad colors that sapphires can come in, and they're beautiful.

4. I talked to Georgia about Christmas and all the gifts she's going to be getting from people, and told her that we, as a family, could get gifts for kids that don't have any, or buy grain and chickens for kids in other countries instead of giving gifts to each other.  She liked the idea, and said that instead of mommy and daddy giving her toys that she wanted to go pick out toys for the other kids.  So, that's kinda cool...

I'm not alone.

Thanks, Dad

My dad bought the Starbuck’s Christmas cd for me; I’ve been listening to it all weekend and all morning. The very first song it Baby it’s Cold Outside, sung by Norah Jones and Willie Nelson (who is that, you ask? Click here, he’s been around a while). Yesterday he (my dad, not WIllie Nelson) went to the Fresno State girls basketball game with me and a bunch of church people and was telling me that he wiki-ed Baby it’s Cold Outside, and it turns out it has quite an interesting story, not to mention its an awesome song. Norah and Willie do quite a good job, and I find myself wanting to get my hands on some Willy Nelson music.

The cd has really great songs, and one of them is Little Saint Nick by the Beach Boys. My dad has a friend, Wil, with whom he has been friends for YEARS, he goes to our church, and I have these memories of Wil who LOVES the beach boys. Anyway, when I was little he drove this yellow little car (I think it was a corolla), and he would let me ride in front and shift the gears for him when we went somewhere together. Every Friday night there was a group of people that would get together at the church I grew up at and play volleyball until late, and afterwards we would go out and get iced tea and fried food at Carls Jr. or A&W, and I would ride with Wil, and undoubtedly there was a Beach Boys tape playing in his car. I still remember the way the car smelled, and I loved shifting gears when I rode in it. I’m fairly certain that I thought I was actually driving.

So, I guess I am recommending the cd to everyone. It’s quite cheery.

Every year its the same thing

I know that I post about Christmas music every year around this time, but I just have to reiterate: I LOVE CHRISTMAS MUSIC.

There's an new christmas album at Starbucks (as well as the new Norah Jones album) and it looks awesome.

Here are this year's favorites (um, not from the Starbuck's album, just in general):
1. O holy night (will always be the best. Christmas. song. ever.
2. All I want for Christmas is you (Mariah Carey)
3. Baby, it's cold outside (any version is good, but I love the girl in Elf singing it the best)
4. God rest ye merry gentlemen
5. What child is this
6. Carol of the bells

I'm sure I'm missing some...

But, if you need a pick-me-up, please click the link of the Elf girl singing Baby its cold outside.
