dissapointment on a tuesday;

So I got up this morning, planning to put some great new music on my iPod to motivate me to go to the gym.  Well I am usually really great at finding good new music, but I have to say either I have lost my touch, or music SUCKS right now.  I have found about 4 songs that I would actually like to listen to right now out of the 30 I have downloaded.  Very dissapointing since it has been weeks since I have looked for new music at all.  Well I might as well share w/ you the songs I do like!

1. Victory - DJ Kahled ft. Nas & John Legend
HONESTLY-- How can DJ K's shitty ass even be associated w/ this song.  I am SO not a fan of his but I LOVE LOVE LOVE John Legend.

2. Bulletproof - La Roux
I am pretty sure this isn't all that new.  But I am not really sure where I have heard it before, these days- probably on a commertial.

3.  Women Lie, Men Lie - Yo Gotti ft. Lil Wayne
I have also heard this before, again not sure where.  I feel like this blog is a joke right now because none if this is actually new.

4. KnockOut - Lil Wayne ft. Nicki Minaj
Obviously Rebirth came out in February, but I was majorly slacking and never really checked it out.  Honestly at first listen I'm not that interested.

Okay, honestly all those songs but 1 are not even that great.  I am really bummed.  SOMEONE please tell me what they are listening to right now.

wine for a cause;

Well I certainly love wine.  Why not drink wine for a cause?  Fledging Wine sells wine to benefit Room to Read, a non-profit organization created to extend literacy and educational opportunities to children world wide.  To get more information go to (FLEDGLING WINE)'s site.  There you can also purchase a bottle of wine or a case.

"The Fledgling Initiative is bringing together three inovative organizations to support global education.  Our success means children's lives will be changed across Asia and Africa through experiencing their first library and books in their own language." -John Wood, founder of Room to Read

Rabbit Rabbit!

Happy March 1st everyone.  I have been terrible at blogging.  I'm sounding like a broken record repeating the obvious in every post.  Well I cant continue to promise that I'll write, but lets hope it just happens.

So does anyone else say "Rabbit Rabbit" on the first of the month before they say anything else believing that it will bring them good luck for the rest of the month, but not knowing why.  Because I do.  And I have for like 8 years now (at least tried) and today, my oatmeal and starbucks via breakfast is making me curious.

So I suppose I should start w/ why I say it.  I actually learned of it when I was a freshman and went out for new years w a group of friends.  After the new years party we all stayed at one friends house and in the morning all the girls woke up and yelled "Rabbit Rabbit".  I had never heard of that before and so I asked why, and they told me because if you say it first thing in the morning, before you say anything else, it will bring you good luck for the rest of the month.  Ever since then I have just kind of believed it.

Mmm, I tried to do some research on it, and there are a million and one different variations of it.  Some say "rabbit rabbit rabbit" some say "rabbit rabbit white rabbit".  Some say that all the people that hear you say it are who you will have good luck w/.  And some say that you must say "Rabbit Rabbit" and then greet everyone else w/ "peanuts" instead of "goodmorning" to give others good luck.

It is thought that is came from the fact that rabbits are thought to be lucky, just like a "lucky rabbits foot".  But it seems to be very unclear.  It's always fun to have something to believe in though.  So those of you who didn't know about this...don't forget to say "Rabbit Rabbit" first thing on the first of every month :)
