Was that from Dunkin Donuts? I've never had their chai tea latte.

Just finished yard work. Thinkin about fixin some BBQ ribs tonight. Big glass of CherryLimeaide = All kinds of awesome.

Faldor - McDonalds has the best value/dollar menu.

No, it was from Panera Bread. I don't know if they are nationwide, but seem to be pretty much everywhere around here. They're basically a bakery but also serve many sandwiches, soups, salads, and some pasta dishes, along with a full cafe line of coffee/tea drinks similar to what you would find at Starbucks.

They have two bagels there that I could eat forever. Asiago cheese and Cinnamon Crunch. Mmmmmm...

We got a second cat from a shelter a few weeks back. He's been fitting in real well and it's been humorous watching him trying to fit in with Nikki (our original, 7 year old female cat). Nikki is more or less an asshole. She doesn't like to be touched much, very much likes things HER way, etc etc. Well, Jack White IV (The new cat) is playful and affectionate. He also really doesn't give a shit what Nikki likes or doesn't like. They don't physically fight but Nikki likes to threaten constantly, which again, JWIV couldn't care less about.

I was finally able to get a picture of it today:

My precious baby girl is not an asshole. She is particular smile

So really, Russ is listening to Slither smile

All I can say is "GOOD FOR HER!" She's someone I've always rooted for and I'm glad she's standing up for herself.

Exactly. It's not often artists like Kelly make direct comments when they're mistreated or misrepresented, and this definitely opens the door for people like her to stand up for themselves.

Kelly Clarkson's Letter to Clive Davis … de=GLO5cY7

February 19, 2013
Hey y'all,

So I just heard Clive Davis is releasing a memoir and spreading false information about me and my music. I refuse to be bullied and I just have to clear up his memory lapses and misinformation for myself and for my fans. It feels like a violation. Growing up is awesome because you learn you don't have to cower to anyone - even Clive Davis.

First, he says I burst into "hysterical sobbing" in his office when he demanded Since You Been Gone be on my album. Not true at all. His stories and songs are mixed up. I did want more guitars added to the original demo and Clive did not. Max, Luke and I still fought for the bigger sound and we prevailed and I couldn't be more proud of the life of that song. I resent him dampening that song in any way.

But, yes, I did cry in his office once. I cried after I played him a song I had written about my life called "Because Of You." I cried because he hated it and told me verbatim that I was a "sh*tty writer who should be grateful for the gifts that he bestows upon me." He continued on about how the song didn't rhyme and how I should just shut up and sing. This was devastating coming from a man who I, as a young girl, considered a musical hero and was so honored to work with.
But I continued to fight for the song and the label relented. And it became a worldwide hit. He didn't include that in the book.

He also goes on to say My December wasn't successful because I co-penned the album and it didn't have "pop hits". Well, first let me say, I've co-penned many of my "pop hits." Secondly, My December went platinum (It sold 20,000 less than All I Ever Wanted which followed My December.) Hardly a huge failure. Never Again, the ONLY single they released in the US from that record was a Top 10 hit. I am very proud of that and I have my fans to thank. But, again, what's most interesting about his story is what he leaves out: He doesn't mention how he stood up in front of his company at a convention and belittled me and my music and completely sabotaged the entire project. It never had a chance to reach it's full potential. My December was an album I needed to make for myself for many reasons and the fact that I was so completely disregarded and disrespected was so disheartening, there really aren't words to explain….

Anyway, I love my job. I love my music. I love my fans. I love my label and all of my professional relationships… now. And I am grateful for Clive for teaching me to know the difference.

Cheers to another amazing year! And, as always, thanks for listening!

My windshield looks filthy, but in my defense, it's February in Michigan which means that if you aren't constantly pouring out washer fluid, your windows are hardly ever clean. We cope with it, though. smile

I saw this today driving home and tried to get a picture... While driving in rush hour traffic... smile

Thankfully the person was exiting the highway at the same time as I was and we got stopped at the same light, so I was able to grab this:

I thought it was cool that it was a young girl driving, maybe mid-twenties or so. She did not have any dj on her car, either, lol.

#9 Re: The Garden » i need glasses » 497 weeks ago

I also had to get glasses about six months ago. I need them mainly for work and school, and don't wear them as often as I should otherwise. I get horrible headaches when using the computer for any length of time without them. I am also light-sensitive and the glasses help manage that as well.

I don't love them, but I'm happy I have them.
