First up, Battle of the Bands results. The song was I Believe It (Delicious Surprise) and the contenders were Beth Hart and JoDee Messina. How did you guys vote?
Beth Hart: 8
JoDee Messina: 16
As for me, my vote is for JoDee Messina. So, my vote doesn't change anything but extend the margin of JoDee's win. I simply love her version of this song. I love it best kicked up to max volume riding down the road and singing at the top of my lungs. But, that's just me. All I really want now is a handful of salvation! I believe it!
If I didn't vote on your Battle this time, do not despair. I'm not boycotting you. I'm just Super Busy visiting relatives (who I don't see but once a year... maybe) and my Internet time has been severely limited. Vacation and blogging don't go so well together, but things will be back to normal come mid-August.
So, what was the first big surprise of junior year?
J1 came back. Yep, shocked me into speechlessness (and that doesn't happen often!).
I was living off campus with Jennifer the Second and some of her sorority sisters. School just started, and I was trying to lose this strong southern accent I picked up after working all summer with Louisiana people. I'm horribly empathetic and will adapt other people's accents (obviously) amongst other things. So, there's this knock on my door and it's J1. Yep, he tracked me down.
I know that you guys are dying to see him, so I'm going to share a couple of pictures. Just know that it wasn't all smooth sailing (as you might expect). We actually had a rough take-off. I think that sometimes happens when your gut is telling you "this is the real thing." That stuff is scary.
Here we are:
You know this is Serious Romance. Not everyone gets a TRAIN song... plus the lyrics are PERFECT.
When you met your first (possibly only) Big Love was it smooth sailing? Or did you take a few steps forward and back before things really started to roll?
If you're enjoying these posts, feel free to share your own Soundtrack. This isn't a hop. No requirements at all, but a suggestion to do it one song at a time. (If you participated in the hop several years ago, you can still do this. Just post them one song at a time, with the freedom to add more songs if you'd like.) I'll link to all participants at the bottom of each of these posts:
