On a lighter note, I watched to 50th Grammy awards last night, and I must say I was a bit disappointed. I don't ususally watch the Grammys, but since it was the 50th, I expected a little more pow, bang and zip for it being the 50th and all. Of course the entertainment was good, but I expected something more "out-of-the-box" type of thing. Something more stupendous to out-do all 49 Grammy shows that preceded. Not even a compilation video show of all 50 years put together in one glorious presentation. I guess the writer's strike affected the illustrious Grammys and I was very dissapointed to say the least. Not to mention, that of the "late" artists that were being shown on screen who had gone on to their "greater Grammy award," James Brown was not listed among them! For shame! Between that disappointement, and christmas being gone and over with, I think I'll just curl up and hibernate until winter.

Hillary wins Arizona, Arkansas, American Samoa, California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, and Tennessee! While Clinton scored a few victories in key coastal states like California, she only broke 60 percent in one state, Arkansas.
Why am I reposting something on here that is already out there on the web??? For the very fact that I am excited that for the first time in my entire life, since I became eligible to vote at the tender age of 18, that I have actually voted in a primary election. Gasp! (Feel the negativity surround the room as readers are appalled over the fact that I have never voted.) The plain fact of the matter is, that, before this, there has never been anyone, (and I mean ANYONE) on the ballot that I thought was worth voting for. Although, I was a Clinton supporter back in the day, I knew he would win without my vote, so I don't feel guilty about that. I just feel bad that he had to leave office. Say what you will about Mr. Clinton, but we were never at war with anyone and he was a pretty good all around guy...problem is, he was "around" in the wrong places too much! But, like most of us say now, "he was a lover, not a fighter!"
I also have that wonderful feeling of accomplishment, having voted in such a key primary which could very well change the course of human history. Although I voted for Hillary, I won't be upset if she doesn't win, and loses to Mr. Obama. I feel that either one will make for good politics in the White House. I know that most of America is not ready for a female, nor for a minority to run the country...but, come on folks, we need a shot in the arm, and this is not the 60s anymore (thank God-yes I said the word, G-O-D). It's a new era where the "minorities" are no longer a minority...we are the MAJORITY, and white America is fast becoming the new "minority!" So we need someone who is more qualified to represent us in the White House, whether it be an honest-to-goodness educated female (which intimidates the "good-old-white-boy" crowd), or the ever-so-feared (by the same), an educated black man.
Whoever it may be, it will be a damn site better than the "BUSH-it" we've been putting up with for the last 7 years!!! He has been president since 1/20/01 and then he's gone on 1/20/09...too long, and not soon enough!
So come November 2008, you know what I'll be doing...making a difference with my long-awaited vote! The United States presidential election of 2008, scheduled to be held on November 4, 2008, will be the 56th consecutive quadrennial election for president and vice president of the United States. This presidential election schedule coincides with the 2008 Senate elections, House of Representatives elections, and gubernatorial elections, as well as many state and local elections.

I know it's already February, but I got a late start on the blog-thing. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em, I always say. And if you do beat 'em...don't leave any fingerprints behind!
I figured it was time to jump on the "blogging" band-wagon, and start e-journaling everything that's been on my mind since birth. But just for today (Tuesday, February 5th) I'll just wish everyone a great "fat tuesday" or as the commercial masses say "Mardi Gras!"
This is the last day to party for most devout Catholics, since tomorrow is "Ash Wednesday" and the first day of "Lent." TG I'm not such a devout Catholics anymore...too much conflict there...however I do consider myself a good Christian and do unto others before they do unto me...(just kidding). I try to treat everyone as if they were my long lost friend, with love and kindness. It doesn't cost anything to smile at someone, no matter what kind of day you're having. A smile or even a hug could make the difference in someone's day...you just never know! TTFN
