You know I always ramble about how I like to live life as an adventure and also I believe in doing spontaneous things. Okay here it is…….I’M GOING TO SEE JOSH GROBAN IN CONCERT THURSDAY. OMG I am so excited. The last “concert” I went to was puff daddy and little Kim years ago in Orlando I think the first time I heard of him was a year and a half ago when My ex fiancĂ© bought me Josh Groban’s Awake cd after watching him perform on Jay Leno. What a gorgeous voice, and he is only 30. My friend Pavel is a Bono look a like and might I add a very talented musician. He will be coming to Indianapolis towards the middle of the month, as he has never been here. I'm curious to see how the Hoosier State will welcome him. :) Getting back to my point, here he is with the one and only Josh Groban on the red carpet.

I don’t know why, but Josh Groban popped up in my head yesterday. I enjoy his music very much. I was curious and went to his website browsing and noticed that he released his new album yesterday. How funny is that. It’s a sign.  No, I didn’t go get the album , but I saw that he was going to be on tour. Curious me, I looked, and sure enough with my luck there was only 2 tours he was going to be having a concert in NYC this Thursday and then another in London. Both are SOLD OUT. I was disappointed BUT you know most people see that and then just give up. NOT ME *SMILE *. I saw it as a opportunity, and I have faith. There were a few tickets on stub hub and some costing anywhere from $600-1000 for front row. This is where I draw the line and browse affordably without burning holes in my pockets. What mattered to me is that I was there. I don’t care where I am sitting lol. Besides that’s why they have binoculars. I found a ticket dead center balcony. I love NYC, but it’s not for everyone. I have been to Manhattan a lot, as most of you know I have a BIG family in Brooklyn and Queens . The majority is in Brooklyn, and almost every day it’s a party at their house or its bingo night. For me I like to enjoy the sites and history. Not to mention the people watching and NY’s fabulous characters. The Naked Cowboy is one. I haven’t seen him in a while. But I have seen the naked “granny” cowgirl. Talk about a bad nightmare. Then we have the ghetto Elmo, Cookie Monster, Pooh Bear, ghetto fabulous Mickey Mouse, and my recent favorite the one arm Spongebob

Another week till Thanksgiving…yumm. Bring on the sweet potato and green bean casserole’s my way. Hey don’t forget the stuffing. Holidays are getting closer as we know it. Look out mall madness. I was talking to a friend of mine this past Sunday (GO COLTS), as we were shopping that evening for a dress for her daughter. I mentioned to her that I want to go to Mall of America , before the end of the year. Now that is a suicide mission especially before Christmas, as I can’t even and don’t want to IMAGINE the hoards of people there. It would be a great experience and its nice to say I experienced Mall Of America.  My girlfriend is all gung ho about it. She has a few kids, mostly boys so doing a road trip with them alone would be an adventure. Going back to our shopping, we went to Keystone Crossing or Fashion Mall where they have a Sheraton connected to the Mall, along with a Cheesecake Factory. It’s been a long time since I been to Cheesecake Factory in general. So going back to my shopping, we walked around and looked for a dress and came out empty. SO then we rushed over to Circle Center and went to Nordstrom there as well as another store and again came up empty. Her daughter is probably going to get her dress online, as she already saw a dress on there that was gorgeous. It’s a hefty price tag but its worth every penny. I can’t wait to see pictures. We then headed to Chilis for munch as my friend calls it and then drove back home to Terre Haute. Notice I am not talking much about the Colts as these last few games haven’t sat well with me.

From this Saturday I am 15 weeks from the Mrs. International and 27 weeks from the NY Pro. I can’t WAIT to step on stage again. I miss it. Everyone is talking about the new women’s Physique Class coming next year. I won’t go into details on my thoughts. But I will say it can be a very positive thing as far as girls/women don’t have to worry so much about the “size and conditioning” factor. At some past shows we have had girls win shows who were soft and jiggly but presented themselves very nicely on stage. This new class will be perfect for competitors like that as well as girls that may get overlook such as the small girls like LW, Middles, and some LHWs, lastly we don’t have to worry about the super drawn in face which can demonstrate a very unhealthy look for female . As far as female bodybuilding being the end as some have predicted..I highly doubt that.

I can’t stop thinking about a chainmail my girlfriend sent me about Puerto Ricans. It was pretty much like Jeff Foxworthy’s “ you know you’re a red neck” jokes. So I get this chainmail with several things describing Puerto Ricans. One of those things was you know your Puerto Rican if you’re the only one clapping your hands when your plane lands lol. I have done this. Another one is using your lips/mouth to point to things. Ha ha, I have done this quite a few times and picked that up from my grandmother. I will see if I can have my girlfriend forward me that text again and I will post it on here. I got a kick out of it.

My Bengal "Spongebob" aka "Gotti" now known as "Inferno" went crazy on me. I was holding him in my arms and we walked by my vacuum(which was off ) NEVER EVER will I do that again. Can we say OCHIES! He started flipping out and scratched up my wrist and made a huge scratch on my palm. He was out for blood and got it. Not to mention he dug his nails DEEP in the side of my leg, which bruised it nicely. I can tell at this time I had no problem finding him a name. There were many names that came to mind . When I looked at my battle wounds I looked like I was in a bad cat fight. I pulled out my Spongebob band aids and patched myself right up. 5 band aids did the trick
