Happier ;D

YAY!!! Mark's leg is getting better, my bleeding's stopped, Lili is going to bed at a decent hour, and Bec and I are back on track...MUCH happier today ;D

And WOW, Nic and Kim, now I see what you mean about deadlines making you work so much more effectively lol ;P I've almost completed two of my three DT projects in the last day...just have to put the finishing touches on both of them (brads, rubons on one, etc.) and then just ONE TO GO!!!! I am so excited about the first newsletter coming out very soon for Scrap To The Max...the other DT girls and I have been working so hard on our projects and FINALLY we'll get to share them!!!!! YAY YAY YAY!!!!! Amber is doing such a great job as boss, and Nic is too as Boss Max Chick ;P I am really loving being a part of this amazing little group we have and getting to know the girls a little more...they are all so lovely :o)

So...why a Pink song, you might ask???? Well, the thing with me and music is this. I am not necessarily a fan of one particular group or singer or style...I am drawn to the song. It might be the melody, the lyrics, the message, or the film clip that I love. With this Pink song, it's the message...and the film clip! I love how she's so true to herself; she doesn't try to be like all of the other skinny, blonde, big-busted, up-themselves women on the American music scene. She's Pink...totally herself, all the time. And I also love how she's encouraging women to reject the stereotypical bimbo-type with this song and just be themselves, too. LOVE the little girl in the clip...isn't she the cutest little thing? And I LOVE the chuck-offs at Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton, etc...soooooooo DAMN FUNNY!!!!!! But my fave part is at the end where the little girl flicks off the tv, contemplates which to play with - the barbies or the football - then she picks up her footy, and the "good" Pink does the little *two-fingers-swept-across-her-eyes-and-big-grin-thing* and disappears...soooooo cool! Reminds me of me when I was a little girl, and of how I am today. I still loved my Barbie's though lol ;P

Well, happy listening (and watching), and I'll catch you all soon. And thankyou so much for your support...luv ya's...MWAH! ;o)

I've listen to pink for ages i love all her stuff, you spot on about the film clip though, it's a much better message to be sending to out youth!

Well I hope you will enjoy the footy tipping comp. COME ON THE BRONCOS!!!!
