Getting Into The Spirit of Thanksgiving: An Ingrate's Perspective

I asked Punk what I should blog about tonight and she had a few ideas about what I shouldn't blog about (you're dying to know aren't you?) Her only suggestion for what I should write was a post about what I'm thankful for. Aw, doesn't that sound sweet and beautiful and...oh wait...I think I just...yes, I definately just threw up in my mouth a little.

It's not that I'm ungrateful. I'm thankful for a great many things not the least of which include Braden waking me up at 5am by tapping my chest and saying, "Snap out of it, Donny." I'm also thankful for a good laugh, like the one I got while checking in on facebook and finding that Social Interview had asked Ryan, "What makes Missy sweat." and seeing that he had he responded Trent Edwards.


Excuse me while I reapply my deodorant.

In addition to being grateful for the multitude of beautiful men pictured on the Internet, I'm thankful for my upbringing. I had a solid homelife. We always had juice and snacks and this brought me a great deal of security. This no doubt explains my super fit and trim figure. 

When I was eleven I had the opportunity to star in a music video. Well not so much as star in a music video as remake someone else's music video for fun. There were three guys in the band and since there were three girls on the remake we were each assigned a band member to copy.


I was the black one. It was the natural choice given my pasty white complexion.

 I don't have a copy of our version but I found the original on YouTube. I know that a lot of you can't watch the videos at work and to you I say, I'm so very sorry. I'm going to share it anyway.

Viewer Discretion Advised: I'm pretty sure this video was made in 1990. It is extremely corny and involves a white boy trying to rap and a black man dancing in pink pj's. Also yes, the van does say "Heaven or Bust."

Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

I love DC Talk. They are a significant element of my adolescence (I was the long haired non-rapper ;-). However, this video crossed my cheese-line. I'm so, so, so, so very embarrassed for them.

I played Di from Clueless in a scene from the movie. Yeah, I put on black makeup. It was awesome.

All I can say is, "Go Bills." (Someday? Please? For me?

Sorry hun but I won't watch DC Talk because I consider them a fake group in the mold of Milli Vanilli. Now if you want a real group go to Motley Crue. Now they could rock out. I would be Vince Neil by the way!

Never heard of them before - But I'd imagine they were wildly accepted in the rapping community.
