Roasting Letters On An Open Fire

Happy New Year!!!!

I still have to get used to ending my dates in 07. It usually takes me about two weeks to get that concept right. I can't believe another year is starting. Each new year serves as an opportunity for many to have new beginnings. New resolutions promising better health, more wealth, and improved relationships. Lots of times, many of those resolutions fall by the wayside before a week even wraps up.

While hanging out with Rock this past New Year's weekend, he introduced me to two traditions that he holds dear to his heart. The first one is to make a list of things you want to burn off in 2007. You know, stuff like bad habits, toxic people, or whatever had a lock on you in 2006. Once you write down what you want to get rid of in 2007, you take the paper and burn it in the fireplace (if you have one, otherwise I guess the stove will do...*LOL*). We burned ours around 11:50PM on the 31st. The second one was to write yourself a letter of the things you hope to accomplish in 2007. After writing the letter, you seal it and hide it somewhere to not look at again till the end of 2007. The purpose is to see how much you've accomplished. Of course it'd be a letdown if you didn't reach any goals, but then I guess if you still want them, you can rewrite it for the following year.

In between make out sessions in his car and at various parts of the house, we somehow got hooked on Ugly Betty. It happened while we were getting a New Year workout in the basement. SoapNet was passing this marathon and next thing we knew, we were watching all the episodes. It's as good as the critics have been saying and aside from America's performance, Vanessa Williams rocks it as the evil Wilhemenia. It's a nice little ensemble and I'm forced to watch ABC, despite them killing two other shows I got hooked on, The Nine and DayBreak.

Sigh...when are En Vogue going to release their new album already? Unfortunately Dawn probably won't come back but Rhona has a really nice voice. The four of them need to get it together.

I'm also loving the Riddle video from their Masterpiece Theatre album. It was the last video En Vogue did before leaving their last label. Gotta love the color coordinated skirts and pants and even though the scenes each lady is singing about isn't depicted in the video, the breaking glass in each sequence works out nicely. Plus I love the remixed version of their song.

Maybe En Vogue will make another return in 2007. And maybe their album will generate buzz.

Keep it drama-free and heavy-and-useless-reflexionsfeelings-free as well. Just let things happen naturally.

E, I think that EnVogues days are over. That last album was just horrible. We all knew that the ladies could sing, but they just never really made a huge breakout.

GO rock.

I like Ugly Betty but I always feel like they are going to make her pretty like the Devil Wears Prada. BUT THEY DON"T. I mean I get the inside beauty thing, but can we get America in some couture.
