Time to Chill

I am not getting enough rest. This is the second week of a lingering cough --- not a good sign --- there are a couple of major, time-sensitive projects that I must complete within the week. I'm pretty sure the cold is lingering because I really haven't allowed my body to rest in about five weeks now. Well, I'm really going to chill this evening. My remedy of choice is tea with honey, lemon and Haitian rum. I must fill you in on Haitian rum in a future post. With that, I'm surely to be out like a light soon and not to be held responsible for anything I may type.

I'll be back with you good people tomorrow. In the meantime, enjoy this unique collaboration of the James Brown hit, It's a Man's World, with Brown and Luciano Pavarotti.

In spite of the whack decisions made regarding the incarceration of Genarlow Wilson, here's one of my favorite songs by two of my favorite artists...'Georgia On My Mind' - Michael Bolton featuring Ray Charles. Enjoy.

Feel Good Friday Video - "Get Me Bodied" ~ Beyonce

I love the infectious beat of this song and the choreography; I'm adding it to my workout music repertoire. Enjoy.

Tagged, Again?!! Promise You Won’t Laugh at #8!

My BB (blog buddy) Maria tagged me again. I’m supposed to list 8 random facts about myself. Man, oh, man, I’ll try.

Here are the rest of the rules:

* Players start with 8 random facts about themselves.
* Those who are tagged should post these rules and their 8 random facts.
* Players should tag eight other people and notify them that they have been tagged.

Random Facts About Vanessa

  1. I can’t sleep for more than 4 or 5 hours at a time unless I’m ill.
  2. I played Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz when I was in elementary school. I got to sing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and everything.
  3. I can sing “O Come All Ye Faithful” in Latin. One of my seventh grade teachers, Mrs. Kruger, taught us using a Bing Crosby record.
  4. I speak Greek (a little). Sagapo! (I love you.)
  5. My favorite colors are pink and black. My dream car is a black Mercedes convertible with custom ballet pink leather interior and woodgrain details.
  6. My wardrobe includes 7 black suits and 12 pair of black pants. Too much black, huh?
  7. I can’t swim. (I’m not proud of that.) I do know how to prevent myself from drowning though.
  8. I like rock and heavy metal music. I totally lose my mind when I hear Janet Jackson’s “Black Cat” and “Walk This Way” with Run DMC and Aerosmith. Yeah, 20 years later, I can still play a mean air guitar.

I’m not gonna tag anybody but this was really cool. I had an excuse to dance around the house and look really silly. LOL Thanks, Maria, I needed that!
