Well; today is October 14th; seven days subsequent to my last post. How are you all today?
I don’t have anything specific to talk about; just all these random thoughts etcetera that have passed through my mind since we spoke last.
Today is my brother’s birthday. He’ll be twenty-two today and he is probably at work in Barbados (Caribbean island) right now. So I’ll call him later, see how he is doing. Remind him that I love him.
Tonight will be the premiere episode of Eli Stone: Season Two. I watched the reruns of season one over the summer and fell in love. I hope they keep the energy and awesomeness of the show going because I wouldn’t want it to get axed; as a lot of shows do; either at the end of season one or two. There is no room for second chances in TV world; that’s why I’m glad I live in the real world most the time.
This morning, I got up at about 8:45; I prayed; watched the Ellen Degeneres Show, which I love and watch everyday; while watching the show I worked out on my Ab Lounge, which I bought for myself last November; I also did some scrapbooking. I have been working on a scrapbook as I am able to, since March this year and it features our first year in America. I have now made it in to the spring 2008 portion of the scrapbook. So I inserted gorgeous photos, we took of trees and flowers in early bloom, this spring.
Then I turned on one of the music channels on t.v and I worked out in the form of dance. My favorite song I danced to this morning was from my Bajan gal (Barbados) Rihanna: Disturbia. I love that song. Then I discovered another one of my fellow Bajan sisters, Shontelle, whom I can actually say that I met and spoke to in person; in hopes to put on the cover of the third issue (never printed) of my Bajan (Barbados) youth magazine called “BajeYout,” has a mainstream song called “T-Shirt” and her debut album “Shotelligence” is due out November 18th. I pray for her success. Holla Bajan Girls:
So, I received a postcard from a pen pal in the U.K today of the Tower of London Bridge. Have I told you lately how much I love postcrossing? I also received a letter from a pen pal in Japan. At the last paragraph of her letter she writes:
“I’m interested in American presidential election now. I watched Mr. Obama’s speech on t.v and was impressed. His speech was filled with much energy. Not only Mr. Obama, American politicians are good at making speech, I think. I’ve heard you can learn about making speech at school. We don’t have classes for speech so we are not good at saying what we think in front of others. What do you think the coming election? Do you support Mr. Obama or Mr. Mccain?”
Well; my answer to that is; I am an Obama supporter for sure. I received an e-mail from the Obama camp over the weekend that I thought was pretty cool and I want to share with you. It gives me a warm feeling to see ordinary people do extraordinary things. It gives me hope for this world and the belief that dreams do come true. I pray Obama dominate the upcoming election November 4th and continue to bless and change this world after that:
I also found this video on the net that features both parties I spoke about in this post. Featuring a song by Bajan artist Shontelle called “Battle Cry,” which I like very much and the only politician in the world I have come to respect and look up to; may I present:
