Vite, vite!

I’ve found it really difficult to flesh out my thoughts into actual entries of late, but there have been things going on out the wazoo in my life! I’ll get around to doing that when I procrastinate this weekend, but in the meantime, I will quickly share some spring sountrack glory with y’all:

1. Lil Jon – Get Low

For some inexplicable reason, this song has been my theme for volleyball for the past three weeks. No matter how hard I try, I keep catching myself singing “FROM THE WINDOWWWW, TO THE WALLLL, TO THE…*sighs*…SWEAT DRIPPIN’ DOWN MY BALLS…” Hilariously enough, though, my team always joins in for the ever-classy “OH SKEET SKEET” part, and it always ends in laughter.

2. Britney Spears – Til the World Ends

This song is just crack, and that is all I have to say.

3. Ciara – Gimmie Dat

Ciara is inexplicably the most friggin’ fabulous woman in hip-hop, in my opinion. This song just makes me feel like a total badass, but the video is pretty incredible too, dance-wise. I just can’t embed it because VEVO is thirteen assholes rolled into one.

The more I look at this random sampling of my current obsessions, the more concernicus I get for my musical taste. OH WELL. Enjoy!

Bis später!

1. Lent

Despite the fact that I don’t really subscribe to any sort of organized religion, I always use lent as an excuse to either better myself through giving up something very challenging. This year, deciding on what to give up was surprisingly difficult in and of itself. I consulted a few friends, but the same items kept coming up; chocolate, alcohol, meat, etc., etc. However, in 2007, I gave up chocolate, 2008 was processed food, 2009 was meat and last year, I gave up swearing (with about 80% success, haha). I considered giving up alcohol, but I kinda just decided to do that in life, anyway. In any case, finding something new was difficult. My amazing revelation occurred this morning, while playing squash. My partner turned to me and said, “Yo, you should give up listening to music on your iPod!” Sheer brilliance. I think this is going to be the most difficult lent yet, as I am very rarely found without headphones in. I’ve decided that I will give myself the allowance of listening to music while I work out, but nowhere else. I will keep you updated on my absolute agony.

2. DJ Tiesto

Late in every winter, when I am absolutely being driven bonkers by the severe lack of spring in my life, I enter an epic electronica phase. I generally love it, but it’s pretty much all I listen to come February/March. This time ’round, I’ve been fiending DJ Tiesto like crazy. Listen to this song and be transported.

3. My now-defunct sweats

Here’s the thing: I play a lot of sports and always have, and having a pair of sweats to throw on between games, performances, and to and from activities has always been paramount. My hideous navy sweats from Costco have served this purpose for me since grade 8. Yes. Grade 8. When I was 5’2″ and teeny. I am now 10 inches taller, and actually have the build of a woman, but they STILL FIT. Can you imagine my distress when I realized I had a tennis ball-sized hole in the crotch of my darling sweats?! Disaster. I am now just waiting for the new sweats Imma buy to come in at the University bookstore…stupid backorder.

4. Successful lunch experiment #892347

I ate grilled chicken breast with sauteed red onions & corn, and then put some improvised peanut sauce all up on it. SO delicious. Mix sour cream, peanut butter & paprika, then heat a bit. Golden!

5. A sexy car

I really like the R8. Deal with it.
