Whitney Houston: I will always love you


Yesterday my mother called and with so much pain in her voice said
"Whitney Houston is dead."


At the time I was out with friends and though I am known to some as overly dramatic, I'm not overly emotional.  However, instantly I felt the urge to cry.  This was my musical inspiration as a child and to this day still my favorite singer.  There isn't words to to express how much I love Whitney.
I love music! And as far as vocalist are concerned: 

             Whitney Houston = Music

Though I know I can not possibly feel the pain of her loss as much as her family and close friends, I grieve none the less. I have spent my entire Sunday in solitude watching clips and videos of Whitney on Youtube and plan to cap off the night watching The Bodyguard from my personal collection of movies. 

It wouldn't feel right if I didn't dedicate a post to Whitney and her golden voice.  Though it is extremely hard for me to pick a number one fav song sung by Whitney (because to me the are all so exceptional!),  I did leave a few of my top fav's below which coincidentally happen to be some of my favorite songs period.

Whitney's first televised performance 'Home'

 'Run to You'
Also 'I Have Nothing' (Don't Walk Away From Me) is a must listen!

Star spangled banner

 'I Will Always Love You'

 One of my top fav songs off the Preacher's Wife album
'I Love the Lord'

Whitney Houston in my opinion will always be the greatest voice that ever lived. You will be missed and thank you so much for sharing your wonderful talent.

New Girl: Season 1 episode 11

Normally, my schedule doesn't allow for regular TV watching.  But being that I enjoy wasting productive hours by watching TV, I watch Hulu instead. Currently, one of my new favorite shows on Hulu is New Girl.  I most always behind schedule because Hulu takes forever to post episodes (in my opinion). However, I was so delighted with this last episode that I just had to post a few still frames

But before I do...
Here is my plug for the show.
1. Its not for everyone.  I tremendously enjoy it because strangely I identify with the main female character... and a few other characters as well.
2.  Its only 30 min thus it does not feel like a guilty pleasure, at least not to me.  You can watch one episode and not feel like you wasted too much time.
3. Every episode will give you a good laugh, and if it doesn't refer back to plug 1.

Now on to the still frames. Note: they wont make any sense not unless you've watched the episode. I just wanted to highlight a few of my fav parts.

Jess is kicked out of the women's bathroom looking for a place to cry, and finds Nick crying in the men's bathroom.

Jess trying to tell Julia off, in her own special way lol

"If your making a hat for baby, it is done"

Schmidt has been complaining about his towel being wet, now it not even there.

So of course he must go on a Schmidt tirade, and the girls listen

Finally Schmidt finds a solution to maintain dry towels, only to find out his towel is still wet.  I enjoy all the yelling that takes place by Schmidt :)
