5 things for Monday

Well, we were spared the wrath of hurricane Irene here in Florida. I believe it was because I went and bought some skittles as part of our hurricane supplies box.


Skittles power-taste the rainbow. :)




I watched part of MTV’s VMAs last night. Some of the performances were good and some were crap. Literally crap. If your not going to give your best, then don’t perform. Remember, I have 168 other channels to choose from.  A Tribute To Britney Spears
Oh yes…congrats to Beyonce and Jay Z on their announcement.

Rumor has it that Rihanna will replace Megan Fox in the female underwear ads.

T-great post. I TRIED to watch the VMA's I really did, but I'm old and freakin impatient. I decided to watch Drop Dead Diva instead which was followed directly by sexy Brody, I mean Against the Wall! Did you watch?

Oh,I'm assuming Beyonce is preggars?

Helyce said...

Oh and I forgot...four books, really? Do you speed read? I read Retribution, that's it. In fact, I only finished it this morning with my coffee.

I know, you just don't sleep do you...

Tori said...

Helyce-YES! Watched OMG smexy Brody-I mean Against The Wall. Abby is coming off as quite the playa isn't she? lol

I don't know if I speed read or not but I can do up to 3 books a day if they can hold my interest. Don't like to do that because it wears me out.
