There won’t be another one until Feb. 2016, so we better enjoy this day.
Now that I have wished you well on today, I have a question. I have always wondered how people born on February 29th celebrate their birthdays when it comes only every 4 years. Do they not age for 4 years or do they celebrate it on Feb. 28th/March 1st? Hmmm….
Last December I wrote a post about how tired I was of Robert Pattinson and how my obsession with him was just an illusion. But over the weekend I rented “Water For Elephants” and fell back in love with him.
When I say I loved this movie, you better believe it. Not to mention my girl Reese Witherspoon was in it. The movie couldn’t have been any better. It had an awesome storyline, great cast, and loads of cute animals. I especially loved the elephant and it hurt me to see so many animals being abused. Which made me wonder if this still happens today in traveling circuses.
But on a lighter note, the movie was awesome and I am glad I finally saw it. And I highly recommend it!
Movie Rating: 9/10

If you live within Memphis City Limits and plan on going through inspection soon, make sure to check your “check engine” light before you head out. The city of Memphis and the EPA have put into affect a practice that will automatically fail you if your light is on.
Obvious to say, people are upset. And I don’t blame them. If you have an older model car like me, then you know those darn “check engine” lights will come on and stay on for many things. So what are we suppose to do? Pay loads of money to a mechanic to find the issue? Catch a bus, when we all know that MATA sucks or catch a cab that is way too high? And I don’t understand why we still have to go through inspection. I have learned a lot of place don’t even inspect cars, including people who live close to us in the county. How messed up is that?
I don’t know what will happen with this new practice. I think it will cause more people to drive around with expired tags. One thing I know for sure, a lot of Memphians want this practice gone.
Check out the Commercial Appeal article here to get more information on this issue.

I sure think so. Everything is about “I’m gonna do this to you” and “I want you to lick that.” I just want to listen to a plain song about everyday things and not feel sexually harassed. And is it so bad to have a song that I can listen to around my mother without becoming insanely uncomfortable.
I still remember when pure talent was enough to sell records. There was not a big need for graphic lyrics and half- nakedness. And if an artist did want to make a song with sexual themes, they would at least camouflage it in a witty and unassuming way. And we never knew what they were talking about until we got older and took another listen. What ever happened to being cute and coy, and leaving something for the imagination?

Reports are hitting the web that legendary singer Whitney Houston passed away today at the age of 48. The are no details on what caused her death, but some people are guessing it was due to drugs.
I sure hate to believe that drugs were involved but it is likely. Maybe she relapsed. But some good news has come from this, it is being said that they might try to throw together a tribute for Whitney at tomorrow’s Grammy Awards. And she deserves it. Even though her life was a little bumpy towards the end, she was an amazing singer and a beautiful person.

After having emergency vocal cord surgery months ago, Adele recently gave an interview with Anderson Cooper and proved that she still has the pipes to blow everyone out of the water.
I am so glad to see that her voice was not affected by the procedure. I seriously thought that her career was over when I first heard about her throat issues. But the opposite is true and Adele can go on and continue conquering the world!
Watch a clip of the interview below where Adele sings "Rolling in the Deep" a cappella style and kills it.
Everyone has been waiting for the first pictures of Jay-Z and Beyoncé's daughter Blue Ivy since the day she was born. Well here she is in all her baby cuteness. Isn’t she adorable?
Who do you think she favors more, Beyoncé or Jay-Z?

I rented “What’s Your Number” today from Redbox and loved every minute of it. I love anything with Anna Faris and Chris Evans so I had to see this movie. And I am glad I did because it is so cute and funny.
The movie was about a girl who had slept with a load of guys and after reading a magazine article on the subject, decides that she cannot go over the number 20. So she sets out on a mission to go through all of her ex-lovers to make sure she stays at 19 and in the process finds love with Chris Evans. But who wouldn’t, he is hot!
I had a thought while watching. Is 10.5 men really the average number of men most women have slept with? That number seems a bit high, but this is a new day and time. And where does the 1/2 come from? Is that a little person or something? I really would like to know.
Movie Rating: 7/10
