For a MJ tribute album. This came from the BET Awards last bad I don't have cable.

Very beautiful rendition by Ne-Yo.

My Tribute

If you don't get it, MJ used to wear tape around these 3 fingers on right hand. I did this up in tribute last night and rocked it @ my bar, Rhino. Speaking of which, I was so glad the DJ played a lot of MJ...I mean he always plays a song or 2...but we must have heard at least 10 songs during the course of the time we were there. :)

R.I.P. MJ from your fan, ML.

Rest In Peace

So here goes...the first time the death of a celebrity has really hit home for me. For as long as I can remember, I have been a Michael Jackson fan. Being born when I did, I still like to think I was named after him...or at least a part of the reason my parents chose Michael. Now everyone knows I love music, that it's a big part of my life, and I own a couple hundred CD's and loads of legal mp3's; but it wasn't only this way. For the longest time, my collection of music consisted of nothing but Michael's music. I probably wore those cassette's I had out...and I will always remember the first CD I owned upon getting a CD player, was replacing my cassette copy of "Dangerous".

Now there was a time where it wasn't cool in America to like him (a lot more "acceptable" when leaving in Germany)...and I honestly didn't always broadcast that I was a fan back then, but I'll be damned if I still wasn't rocking out to his music at home in middle/high school all the way to having "Billie Jean" shuffle through on my iPod's running playlist just yesterday.

Say what you will about his personal life...but this guy was THE man musically. R.I.P. my good deep love of music came about listening to you all these years. Now I'm gonna put in my MJ mp3 CD and let your music flow out of the GTI.

I haven't told her....

...and wondering if I even should? Time has made the butterflies mostly disappear; but I still find myself thinking about her at least a few times a day. It doesn't help we manage to text each day...although not today.

Le sigh.

Wow...I forgot what this feeling felt like

I'll get to that subject line in a bit; but I thought I'd give an update on what's kept me away from the blog so much; but what kept the Twitter feed pretty active. That would the fun-filled 5 days (not counting today...since I went back to work) I just went through. Here's some of the thing's I accomplished...many of them firsts!

1. Saw "Up" in 3D
2. Went to The National Zoo
3. Had 2 great nights @ Rhino (my bar)...especially Friday*
4. Lounged at the pool (this is special because I'm usually by myself)
5. Went to a DC United (soccer) game...awesome
6. Saw No Doubt in concert....really awesome
7. Went to the Natural History museum in DC and walked the Mall.

Now, to get back to the subject line. I did all this and more with a friend of mine. She was watching a family member's place out in Maryland, but chose to spend most of her time up here with me. Now this is a girl I've always admired since I first met her almost 3 years ago...and after 5 straight days with her...I'm all discombobulated inside. We have so much in common, from our likes, to our dislikes. I don't want to say I'm in love...but it's damn close to that. I've been slightly depressed since saying bye to her last night...and with every quiet day today at work and after, I've been thinking about her.

Now here's the problem, she lives in VA Beach...which I thought was a problem; but I'm *real* close to letting her know my feelings after she has time to settle in back home and see where it goes. I can tell you I haven't felt like this in fact, I don't think I've ever fallen this hard before.

Hi butterflies in my're floating around in there like the free flowing skirt she was wearing as we walked The Mall.

So VA needs to change the law..

..that says a Governor can't run for a consecutive second term. I'd vote for Tim Kaine again in a heartbeat. Anyways, now that Deeds has come from behind and won the Democratic's time to research for this November.

And Bath County beating out too Northern Virginians...nice.

More Hulu goodness

I'm been loving the fact that Conan is now the host of the "Tonight Show". While I no longer stay up that late to watch him and Jimmy Fallon do their thing at night, it's awesome to go watch full episodes (or clips like the one below), the next day or so.

PS...I swear I'm not being paid by Hulu or its affiliates. Haha

You know you are running a lot when...

Your shoes look like this:

This is only after 5-6 months of use. Not a fault of the shoe...just me going a bit nutso running. Couldn't happen at a better time though...since I was able to order these $120 Nike's I've been eying the last few months for $75!
