When you cover a song that's not in your native language, like "Jai Ho,"make sure you are pronouncing the words correctly, especially when you're singing that song with it's original singer, A.R. Rahman. It makes for a REALLY annoying listening experience when you keep singing /jay ho/. It's not /jay ho/ ... it's jai... rhymes with eye. If you're that confused, just listen to the guy that sings it before you in the track. Follow him. He's the original. He knows what he's doing.

I've been obsessed with a tv show. I must say, this has been difficult, since I get only 10 good, basic channels. But at my workout place, I stumbled upon a new show on MTV called Taking the Stage. The show follows 5 kids (3 dancers, 1 actress/dancer, and 1 singer/songwriter) in a creative arts high school in Ohio.

My newest spring trend for this fashion season (because I'm SO into fashion seasons *eh hem*) is the scarf. It all came about yesterday when my forever friend and I were perusing Goodwill. So now, I just have to figure out how to wear them. But after a bit of googling, I came across this site, which was very helpful. Who knew there were so many different options? Amazing.

on Roscoe can be found here. It's my first attempt at writing a bio from a dog's point-of-view. Yes, it had to be done that way, so don't judge.

If you read a few posts back, you could probably tell that I was getting the itch to have another pupster. I'm not completely crazy... I know three dogs are a lot. But there are just so many that need love, so many that need good homes. I can give both. But, Randy had the voice of reason (this time) and talked me into fostering. I think it'll be a great thing.

Today was my work out day. I've been trying really hard to eat healthfully and exercise more. And, I've been pretty inspired by our new workout facility (the flat screen TV on each cardio machine with 70+ channels that we don't get at home is VERY inspiring), but I witnessed something today that made me want to throw up more calories than I burned on the treadmill.
I'm walking on my treadmill, doing an hour of cardio, when some petite lady with bleach-blonde hair piled up in a big, messy bouffant ponytail hops on a treadmill next to me. She starts running and continues to do so for about 5 minutes. Then, she hops off, and probably continues to flit around the place doing an eye-blink's worth of exercise. This is the kind of lady who probably looks great with a ton of makeup to cover up her red splotches and premature aging lines from over tanning. And guys probably go ga-ga over her after they've had a couple drinks and are in a darkened room because she's got a nice body but her face is harsh, to say it nicely.
But no judgement from me, remember? By this time, I've finished my 60 minute workout and have packed up to go. I walk out to the parking lot and notice the same lady piling her toddler into the car. She's got a fresh cigarette hanging from her mouth and accidentally drops it on the concrete. She looks around, not noticing me, and picks it up to continue to smoke it! BLAH! Here is where I'll save you from my rant on smoking with a toddler around (especially in a confined box-of-a-car)... but I bet you can guess my stance on that issue...
Although, honestly, in her defense, what she is smoking is probably WAY worse than anything that could be on the parking lot. I guess a few thousand germs from the concrete really won't hurt as bad as the deadly poison she is willingly sucking down her throat.
Hm. I guess that's why she could only last 5 minutes on the treadmill.

Lately, I've been bored. In my spare time, I've started surfing the internet. I do my daily rounds... friends' blogs, craft websites, and facebook. One thing that I added to my rounds is dog rescue sites. Maybe it's because my forever friend is looking at getting a pupster, or maybe it's because I just feel so dang guilty that good dogs have been in bad places, but a soft spot in my heart has gotten bigger. And it leaves me asking... what's one more? We already have 2 doggers, and legally, we could have 1 more. That's one more saved from a life in a cage. I liked something like this one, this one, and this one.

My husband works at an auto body shop as the in-house estimator. You have car damage and want to know how much it will cost to fix it? Randy can tell you. He's only worked for this auto body for about 5 months, but he really likes the guys he works with. They're always joking around and laughing, so why Randy didn't see a joke coming on April Fool's Day, I don't know. But this is what happened between Randy and a co-worker...
