Green Pearls

My day started at 8am. I kind of figured I would forget about Good Morning America revealing the cast of Dancing With The Stars for Season 16. I was up before my mom came in and got me up. I somehow managed to go back to sleep. Honest to God. I slept like a rock last night. I remember getting up three times, but going back to sleep every time I woke up. I’ve been up for almost 12 hours, so I’m pretty proud of myself at the moment. Anyways, my mom and I waited until it was time for them to announce the cast. Which I’ve got to say, they say it was all “hush hush” and still a secret, but yet both People magazine and GMA were both talking about the cast and who will win. So much for keeping it a secret and plus, it looks everybody at GMA look like idiots! They shouldn’t release anything until an hour after the show was over. Just seems smarter that way, but you know how people are these days. What gets me though, I was doing really good about not reading the spoilers at all until my mom comes in my room, sits on my bed and shows me the damn list. I couldn’t even get the words, “I don’t want to see it!” out of my month fast enough to stop her. I’m pretty content with this season’s cast. My mom and I are loving the fact that Derek is, indeed doing this season after all! We both seem to think Ingo Rademacher and new Pro Gleb Savchenko are pretty hot. Since Maks not on this season, Val, Derek, Tristan, and Mark are the only “hottie” pros.

While we were waiting for the cast to be announced. I knew a new album was supposed to come out today, since it’s Tuesday. New music always comes out on Tuesdays. I was listening to Plumb’s new album, “New You Now” on Spotify. I don’t really consider myself a big fan of Plumb, but I do love a bunch of her songs, like “In My Arms” and “Cut.” I’ve heard three singles throughout the last two months. I finally got to listen to the album and I can say I love that album. I like the sweet, tender songs, but I also like the upbeat songs too! I think my favorite songs are “Invisible,” “Say Your Name,” “Chocolate & Ice Cream,” and “Don’t Deserve You.” All of these songs are different in their own way, and I know lots of you wouldn’t expect me to like a lot of slower songs, but I do. This whole album is really easy, slow, and mellow. I like that, I need a change every now and then. I also found out that the band Delain will be releasing a special album, called “Interlude” and it will be out this summer!! I’ve got another album to look forward to in the summer. I intend on buying this whole album. Definitely not on iTunes this time around. I want this album physically in my feet.

It’s actually been pretty boring here today. The weather hasn’t been the greatest. We had a small storm last night, that was one of the reasons why I got up too. As the day kept dragging on and on, the sun did show itself a couple of times, but not very much. It was pretty gloomy. I’ve been tweeting a lot today, more than usual actually. Especially when Flyleaf had their Livestream earlier today. I was tweeting a lot! Actually, when I was watching GMA announcing the Dancing With The Stars cast, I was tweeting a lot then too. I’m probably making up for past few days. Anyways, I got to hear Flyleaf do an acoustic performance with their new lead singer Kristen. I’ve seen one live video of them performing “Fire Fire” at the end of last year. I thought she was pretty good. They did an acoustic version of their song, “Broken Wings” and I haven’t been able to listen to it on their new album, but I love Kristen’s voice on it. I don’t think I could listen to it knowing it’s Lacey’s voice on the album. That’s actually sad to say, but true too. I love Lacey, but people really shouldn’t compare them, heck, I shouldn’t even go there. By the way, what is with me and drummers? Pat is freaking cute! Thank God he’s married. That stopped me in my tracks as quickly as possible.

I don’t know what I’m going to do now. I don’t have any shows on tonight. So I’ll probably read and sing some more. I just officially added Xandria’s song, “Soulcrusher” onto my list of songs I finally sing out loud and on pitch. Not the right pitch, just the pitch I can go to. Tomorrow, we’re suppose to get some more snow and my mom has to go to work for somebody. They said it’s supposed to snow tomorrow and Friday. I would like to work on Thursday, I missed last week and they played bingo. Not quite happy about that, so even though I know they’re not going to play Bingo, I still want to go to work anyways. Okay, my rant is over. Good night!
