67 - Yo dawg, that was just alright for me...
These are the words I have been hearing lately from Randy Jackson as I rock out Beyonce's "Crazy in Love", Kelly's "Since U've Been Gone", and Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer". Yes, folks, it's true. I now have American Idol Encore 2 for our PS3 (thanks to DH). And I will admit to you all that I have spent about 7 hours in the last three days pretending that I am a rock star and an R&B deva. It has been so much fun...just what the doctor ordered. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who needs a break from their real world.
I would like to take this opportunity to recognize the other black man in my life these days...Billy Blanks. I have been working out with Billy and his Tae Bo moves pretty religiously for the past couple of weeks.
These two gentlemen have provided me with ways to calm my mind down. Usually, my mind goes a mile a minute all the time...here's a sample minute...
"What would Freud think about that? Is there a God? Why can't I fit into any traditional religion? Why do I care? What am I making for dinner? I should try something new. I need to challenge myself. Wow, the world is so big and I am so small. Why does this matter? Why does anything matter? Where's our baby? I hope Alex doesn't get bit by a bug in Africa. I can't wait to see what Obama does for our country. What's for dinner again?...blah, blah, blah, yadda, yadda, yadda."
But when I'm rockin' out Beyonce or "double timing" it with Billy, my mind quiets. And thanks me for giving it a rest.
