Are you kidding me with this album?


I loved 19...I mean I really loved it.

This album is better.

I cried it's so good and that is not a joke.

and my music lovers.

Comment and this CD is yours. Because you need it.

Oh and Robin...I need your address...CeeLo is here waiting.


I am not a watch person but these beauties may change my mind


Remember the Swatch Watch?

Remember how you could switch out different bands and faces?

Well here it is again only cooler.

ENDLESS possibilties.

I mean if Toy Watch is good enough for Randy Jackson they are good enough for me

They're Here!!!!

It is that time of year.

A time of magical wonder.

A time when all seems right with the world.

The time of year when Cadbury Mini Eggs appear.

I buy them in bulk...stock up.

I am grateful for shameless commercialism that allows these precious gems to be sold a month and a half before Easter.

Thank you greedy grocery store chains. Thank you.

An Open Letter

To Whom It May Concern:

Can we just give Lindsay Lohan a chance? I mean freak. I get it, she has broken the law and she lost her way...but she is working on getting her life back together. How can we expect her to improve when we just keep kicking her when she is down? 

I am a recovering addict. I myself have spent time in jail because of it. When I got out it seemed the system did EVERYTHING to keep me down. I am happy to say I am 5 years sober. I have a great life. I have gotten back things I had lost and more. BUT it was VERY discouraging in the beginning as I was pushed and pushed by the system. 

I was among the throng that felt Lindsay needed rehab but now that she is out she needs a chance. necklace give her a break. And this has nothing to do with celebrity...I had to beg for a chance as well.

I thought about making a You Tube video of me crying begging for peeps to leave Lindsay alone but thought this would be better.

Everyone deserves redemption. Charlie Sheen will go back to making millions after his stint in "rehab" (and I mean honestly if there is anything he should pay for it is for making "Two and A Half Men").Robert Downey Jr. got his career back. Lets give Lindsay a chance.

I might make t-shirts.

Saturdays are a good day for purging.

Today I did my yearly closet clean.

 Some of the things I let go:

Blazers (yup blazers)
Tinkerbell PJ's
3 pairs of jeans
Volcom Hoodies
Anthro Tops
Urban Dresses
The Shade shirt I wore to my wedding luncheon

But my most important purge was my #21 Tomlinson jersey.

I kept it for too long.

I feel like I have just shed a huge weight that will never win a ring

Tweet Tweet

I did it.

I am now on Twitter

I am going to figure it out....and I am going to be HUGE.

For now I have two I am already a pretty big deal.

So here is my link

I had a phone convo today that went like this:

Costume Mistress for Hairspray (CM) - Hi Jen
Me - Hi
CM - Ummm I need to tell you something and I don't want you to be hurt or embarrassed
Me - uhhhh ok
CM - You need to wear a tighter bra on stage...I was there on Saturday and you were bouncing too much
Me - uhhhhh
CM - A sports bra would flatten you out too much so just tighten the straps or something
Me - uhhhhh
CM - The show is looking great
Me - Thanks
CM - OK just wanted to tell you before someone else did
Me - ok, thank you
CM - You are welcome 

True story...I mean story of my life really

Hot Topic

This is not a joke.

25% of my wardrobe comes from Hot Topic.

It is a must on any shopping day...I live for concert T-shirts.

Usually Miss and I go to the Gateway and start at Anthro and J Crew.

So when we get to Hot Topic we are laden with Anthro and J Crew bags.

That really is the greatest I walk in with these bags and ask if they have any new Iron Maiden shirts.
 (Funny side note, this also starts convos like "you should not be wearing that as a young womens leader" or "no Jen, Sex Pistols is not acceptable either" )

This store has it all from Kanye to Lil' John to Gaga to Beiber.

I tend to stick to 80's metal.

I mean I even have a loyalty card. 

So yes Robin, Hot Topic....and when you come next we will take you.

Converstaions with the Council - part 1

  So these are not all my council girls


There was a convo last night with these lovely's that must be blogged.
We are having a convo about sex and chastity and such and I start joking and smiling with lines like

"yeah there was a time that was not a priority"
"and I was drunk"

Ha ha ha we are all laughing as they try to figure out if I am serious.

So I bust out the big guns

"and when we sing Big Dollhouse (the jail scene) I can act from experience"

they laugh nervously and say

"ummm I can't tell if she is joking or not"
