Girlfriend and Sister’s Week

I got this from my cousin Jessica and thought I would share it here. Thanks Jessica!

Happy Sister’s Day!

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So love the people who treat you right.
Love the ones who don’t just because you can.
Believe everything happens for a reason.
If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
If it changes your life, let it.
Kiss slowly.
Forgive quickly.
God never said life would be easy.
He just promised it would be worth it.
Today is sister’s day, send this to all your sisters,
mothers, daughters, girlfriends even me if I am like one.

If you get back 7,
you are loved.
Happy Sister’s Day!

Girlfriend and Sister’s Week
I am only as strong as the coffee I drink,
the hair spray I use and
the friends I have.

To the cool women that have
touched my life. Here’s to you!
National Girlfriends Day
What would most of us do without our sisters, confidants and shopping, lunching, and traveling girls

Let’s celebrate each other for each other’s sake!

If you get this twice
you know you have more
than one girlfriend.

Be Happy!
It is good be a woman.

This was interesting…

You know how surprised I am when I get comments from people who read my blog. The other day, I got this one and I thought it was pretty interesting. Not sure what to think about it.

I think I will take it as something good… when you search for Sylvia Garza‘s you get to my blog!

I am a pastor in Des Moines, IA. Tomorrow at 2PM I am officiating a funeral service for a woman named Sylvia Garza. She was 46 years old. Her troubled family weren’t even able to provide obituary information so I was seeing if I could find anything online. That led me to your blog. Just thought I’d pass it along that there was someone else out there with your name who is now deceased. Kind of eerie. But you seem to be quite a bit happier and adjusted than she was. God bless.

Here are my latest most played songs on my iPod…

It’s been a couple of months since I blogged about the top songs played on my iPod. I have been playing my iPod more and more since I do not have my satellite radio anymore. As you can see by my list below, I have a very wide range of taste in music. Here are the ones that I have played the most.

More Than A Feeling” – Boston — probably my favorite classic rock song (plus I love “Scrubs” version of it too!)

Spend My Life With You” – Eric Benet & Tamia

Concrete & Clay” – Unit 4 + 2 — my favorite new song from 1965 that I heard a couple of months ago. I love the tambourine in this song — I want one!

Touch Me In The Morning” – Diana Ross — I think this is my favorite Ms. Ross song

Cupid Shuffle” – Cupid — my favorite chair/driving dancing song — “Down, down, do your dance, do your dance

You’re My First, My Last, My Everything” – Barry White — my favorite Barry White song

A Big Hunk O’ Love” – Elvis Presley — one of my top 5 Elvis songs (check out the YouTube video from Aloha from Hawaii (1973)

Rio” – Duran Duran — I love John Taylor!!

Thunder Road” – Bruce Springsteen — one of my top 5 Bruce songs

My Back Pages” – The Byrds — I didn’t know Bob Dylan wrote this song! Check out the YouTube video with Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Neil Young, Tom Petty and Roger McGuinn (Live)

I’m Doing Fine Now” – New York City — this song os from 1973, don’t remember when I was growing up. I heard one day on the 70’s channel on Sirius and had to find it.

Mire Amigo” – The Hometown Boys — this is one of my favorite Latin songs.

Jump, Jive, An’ Wail” – The Brian Setzer Orchestra — if I could swing dance, this would be the song I want to dance to

Una Noche Mas” – David Lee Garza

When She Was My Girl” – The Four Tops — this is one of my favorite Four Tops song.

All of these songs have been played over 65 times. I have played “More Than A Feeling” — 98 times!

Take a look at you most played songs on you mp3 player.

A laugh to start of the week…

These isn’t mine, I thought they it funny. Here’s looking a having a good start to the week!

A rabbit and a lion come into a bar together and order martinis. The bartender puts out a bowl of peanuts, a bowl of popcorn, and a bowl of pretzels, which the rabbit begins eating. The lion just sips his martini.

“What’s the matter?” asks the bartender of the lion.

“Aren’t you hungry?”

“Don’t be silly,” the rabbit answers. “If he were hungry, do you think I’d be sitting here?”

I didn’t say it was a classic!!

I did it again…

I had a very lazy Saturday afternoon… did a little laundry, took a nap and watch a horrible movie on the SyFy channel — MALIBU SHARK ATTACK.

(from Sci Fi’s press release, April 2009) “Malibu Shark Attack,” starring Peta Wilson – An underwater earthquake generates a tsunami that strikes Malibu and brings a hunting pack of prehistoric-looking goblin sharks to the surface. Although the beach is evacuated before the big wave strikes, a group of lifeguards and a crew of construction workers are stranded in the high water and have to fight the sharks to get to dry land.

This one was right up there with some of the worst movies I had to finish watching to see how it ended. Not sure why I made myself watch it? Was is the funny looking goblin sharks (yes, I did Google it, you learned something new every day!!)? Or the survivors attack the sharks with chainsaws — underwater? I have no idea? Maybe I watched it because of one of the actors in the movie, Warren Christiehubba hubba! He almost… almost made it bearable to watch.

I can’t wait to see what movies will be on tomorrow to watch. Because if there is a horrible movie to watch, I’ll be there to watch the whole thing!

Weird Al Yankovic — “You’re Pitiful”

I just saw this on one of the sites that I visit daily… (don’t judge me!!). This was the first time I ever saw this video.

Weird Al Yankovic wrote and performed, You’re Pitiful, a parody of James Blunt’s You’re Beautiful song. From what was on the website, James Blunt and his manager don’t like Weird Al’s take on the song.

In 2006, Yankovic gained James Blunt‘s permission to record a parody of “You’re Beautiful“. However, after Yankovic had recorded “You’re Pitiful“, Blunt’s label, Atlantic Records, rescinded this permission. The parody was pulled from Yankovic’s Straight Outta Lynwood due to his label’s unwillingness to “go to war” with Atlantic. Yankovic released the song as a free download on his MySpace profile, as well as his official website, and plays it in concert, since it was not Blunt himself objecting to the parody. — from Wikipedia

I have always liked Weird Al’s, here are some of the classics that I like:

My Bologna
“Another One Rides the Bus
Amish Paradise
Bedrock Anthem

I say if you can’t laugh at yourself, there is something wrong with you. So Weird Al, continue to write and sing all the parody you can!

Taco Bell - Gidget

Who could forget “¡Yo quiero Taco Bell!”

The Chihuahua that caputured fast food lovers’ hearts in her infamous Taco Bell ad campaign passed away on Tuesday. Gidget suffered a stroke at the ripe age of 15.

“She made so many people happy,” says Gidget’s trainer, Sue Chipperton, who added that the recently retired actor lived out her last days lying in the sun.

Gidget is just another one on the long lists of celebrities who have passed away this year.

R.I.P Gidget, R.I.P.

*If you are a fan of “Scrubs” you will know this saying.
