a quote or two...

Hope everyone's doing well!

I'm currently reading "Fabulosity" by Kimora Lee Simmons... She is definetly Zsa Zsa Zsu! Besides being a sucessful business woman, (she's the creator of Baby Phat), she is also a beautiful model, mother, and married to one of my heros... (I luv Russell Simmons.) 

Here are some quotes I think girls of Zsu Zsu Zsu should take to heart! Thanks to Simmon's book for these quotes! She places them at the beginning and end of all her chapters.

"Don't let anyone tell you that you have to be a certain way. B e unique. Be what you feel." 

-Melissa Etheridge

"Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth."

-John F. Kennedy

"Some people say that I have an attitude. Maybe I do. But I think that you have to. You have to believe in yourself when no one else does --that makes you a winner right there."

-Venus Williams

*I hope these inspire someone, they really touched me!*

So I've been a crap mod these last couple of weeks... I'm sorry guys! I found some temporary work substitute teaching, and the kids wear me out like woah. There's been a lot of going to bed at grandma hours going on at my house.

I'm now on Spring Break though, so I've taken care of some housekeeping and such. Big ups to Taylor, who's our latest Member of the Month!!! I think I might change it to Member of the Moment, just in case life takes me over again. :) Is there an icon you'd like us to use, Tay?

Just a couple of things I wanted to throw out there:

I've been addicted to the BBC's Celebrity Stock Market for a hot minute, and wanted to know if any of you girls wanted to start a league with me. I think it could be lots of fun for those of us who like to keep up with such things.

I don't know how many of you are as addicted to music as I am, but I feel like I should pimp Audioscrobbler to you. It's a plug-in that monitors what sort of music you play on your computer, makes weekly charts, and recommends new stuff that you might like. If you do sign up, feel free to add me as a friend. I love looking at what everyone else listens to and such. They also have a special journal section, which I find to be awesome for music-only related entries.

Another interesting site that I've found is this one for Spray Graphic t-shirts. I kinda want one. (And the Gnarls Barkley song that plays when you visit the site is pretty sweet!) They make a point of donating some of their annual profits to charity too, so you can feel good about getting one!

That's all for now! I promise to take better care of y'all in the coming weeks!! *hugs*

Friday was a great day.

1. A guy apologized for not holding a door open for me on his own, not because I said something about it. It doesn't help that I'm already in love with him...
2. My mom bought the new Pride and Prejucide movie.
3. I went to an impromtu birthday party that was a lot of fun.
4. Bought an EP album (Laughing City) of a band (Eisley) I've been longing to hear for a long time. Would have bought their full-length album if I had the money...

It's the little things in life that make you happy.
