DIANA MEY, took on the malicious world of debt collection and has won some serious money! No, she'll probably never see a dime, but I betcha she won't be receiving anymore calls from the debt collecting clowns, either!! Yippee for the little (wo)man!!!

Jennifer Hudson on witness stand
Singer/actress, Jennifer Hudson, is currently in a courtroom daily during the multiple, murder trial of the man (her ex-brother-in-law) who allegedly murdered her mother, brother and nephew a few years ago. I hope & pray justice prevails and, if the guy is truly guilty, that he never enjoys the blessing of freedom again! God bless her.

When all was said and done, I was happy that both parties were able to drive away from the collision. Yes, emotionally, both of them were shaken up for a bit. But I hope that they realize that their cars are only cars. They can be fixed. It made my heart jump for joy, though, that the young man and young woman might even become friends from this. And I say this because I saw the young man do for the young lady precisely what I did for her within the first, two minutes of talking to her. I HUGGED her!!! Yep! Sometimes a big, warm hug is just what the doctor orders to calm the nerves. And you know what? I fully intend to do it for everybody I encounter who appears to be in dire need of the same, tender, loving care!!!!!!

People can poo-poo her success all they want, but it's glaringly obvious that a whole heap of a lot of folks really like whatever it is she's got to offer the world!! What I wonder, though, is what kind of head trip goes along with that kind of adoration. Whatever it is, I bet she thinks it's worth it...For now, anyway! God bless her! And God bless those who adore her!!!!!! Must be nice!!!! Or, at the very least...interesting!!!

GCH Jaset's Satisfaction "London"
Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Disney's Tangled) in its entirety, but what I saw, I enjoyed. --- I've steered clear of films in 3D because I was certain that wearing the 3D glasses would give me a headache. Well, I placed the glasses over my own prescription glasses and sat back to enjoy the incredible spectacle before me. And incredible it was! Of course, watching the film brought me back to my youth when everybody loved Fisher Price's View-Master toy. I'm tellin' you, technology moves at a lightning pace and I'm only doing myself a disservice by fighting it!!! So, no more fighting it. Now that I've finally given in and purchased a smart phone, I might as well see 3D movies and eat more sushi!!!!! Haaa!

California Pizza Kitchen with my homie, Chris. He works only a few blocks away from the courthouse, so, visiting him was a treat. Oh, so was the lunch!! I'm not sure why, but I always love it when someone else picks up the meal tab! Haaa!

I can tell you, if he comes to L.A. to sing live, I'm gonna go check him out. I love a beautiful voice. Just love 'em!!!! God bless him. And I wish him continued success!!!

Oprah's Lifeclass On Tour as I type. Bishop T.D. Jakes and Lady O are discussing living our lives on purpose. They are now talking to a young lady who is the legal guardian of her young nephew because his father (her brother) is incarcerated. Not sure where the little boy's mother is. Anyway, the aunt is feeling that the little boy is getting in the way of her life and she doesn't want to feel bad about not loving the boy the way she wishes she should. T.D. and Oprah are certainly asking her some very important questions. She seems to be truly listening. God bless her. And God bless that little boy. --- When I went to return my rental car today I saw one of my fave salesmen. I told him I missed seeing him last Friday when I picked up the car. He told me that he was away because he had to go back to AZ to get to the bottom of his two-yr-old daughter testing positive for cocaine. Come again, I thought! Turns out her mother was arrested last week with a DUI conviction. The daughter was tested, too, for some reason, and, lo' & behold, she wound up positive with drugs in her system, too. Now, the little girl is in the hands of Child Protective Services. Wow! I told the salesman I'd say a prayer for him and his family. And I have. It'll be interesting to find out how this all plays out. --- I am watching this Lifeclass because I am in the process of changing my life and living it on purpose. I am too talented. Too kind. Too smart. And too ALIVE to NOT be living on and/or with purpose. The recent, professional success of a guy I know has shaken me to my core. I am genuinely happy for him. Honestly, I am. But I am also genuinely envious of his success. And there's no reason to be because what he did to garner the success, I can do. Plain and simple. Sowing the seeds to get our professional gardens to grow is the hard work. It's what separates the haves from the have nots. I'm sick & tired of being the latter. Enough said, though. I have work to do.

Matzo Ball Soup
I don't know how many Passover Seder dinners I've worked over the years. Suffice it to say I've been to plenty! I gotta admit, though, I love much of the food served at these events. My all-time favorite is potato kugel; followed closely by matzo ball soup. I know kugel is not for the cholesterol watcher like me, 'cause it's made with chicken fat. But, hey, eating it once or twice a year works for me!!! And with the matzah ball soup, the bigger the matzah ball, the happier I am. I like them nice and spongy. Yum!!! The beef brisket is pretty darn tasty, too, as long as it's tender, tender, tender!!! Well, tonight and tomorrow night I'll be feasting at Seder dinners! Okay, working and feasting! Haaa! I hope & pray there's potato kugel at one of these dinners. It isn't always prepared, so I'm keepin' my fingers crossed!!!!

FOSTER THE PEOPLE. And I have NBC's The Voice to thank for waking me up! I was just on YouTube watching a battle round on that show and the two girls were singing a song I had never heard called, PUMPED UP KICKS. Their performance was so entertaining to me that I felt compelled to look up the song. When I did, I learned that the song was a huge hit last year. And that the young band that originally performed it is a local, L.A. band. Who knew? Well, apparently lots of people did. Now that I "know" them, I'm gonna have to listen to other songs by them. Pumped Up Kicks is about a kid who feels isolated and shunned by the popular kids in school, so he fantasizes about coming to school and shooting "the kids in the pumped up kicks." Hmmm. Sound familiar???
this article about a group of young men in the Philippines who are observing Lent a lot more intensely than I am. In my humble opinion, these young fellas are taking things a little to the extreme. Geez!
