Wednesday Ramblings and Blog Journal Day 1

If you love to read, and if you love baseball, then you have to read The Bullpen Gospels by Dirk Hayhurst. Actually, even if you don't like baseball, I think you will enjoy this book. Dirk tells the story of  the not so glamorous life of being in the minor leagues. There were parts where I laughed so hard I cried, and cried so hard I laughed. I literally couldn't put it down!

Note: Due to language and somewhat crude humor (hey, it has conversations that took place in a guys' locker room, what did you expect?), this book may not suitable for children. Or my parents. ;)

Okay, so several of my blogging friends have been doing this, so I'm jumping on the band wagon and joining in as well. It's a 30 day blog journal with a different question each day. So, on top of my normal ramblings, you'll get this as well (I can tell you are all very excited!)! Here is the list.

Day 1: Favorite Song:
I'm not sure I could pick just ONE. I'll list a few (it's okay to do that, my other friends have!) ;)

Consuming Fire by Third Day (going old school- it's off their first CD!)

Give You Glory by Jeremy Camp (click on the name to go to the video, it wouldn't let me embed it here).

And finally, my friend Jenna over at Legally Brunette is starting (back) up Who and Why Wednesday. I thought I would participate!

1. Who is the better America's Sweetheart?  
Julia Roberts or Sandra Bullock 

I'm going to go with Sandra Bullock. I like her better than Julia Roberts!

2. Who would you rather get fashion advice from?
Stacy London or Tyra Banks

I've only watched Stacy's show so I'm not sure. I know that Stacy can be kinda harsh, so maybe I should go with Tyra. Although she might be mean too. If I could get free clothes out of the deal, I really don't care who gives me the advice!! :)

3. Whose show would you rather be on?
Oprah or The View


I don't watch either so I'm going to say neither show. I'm not the biggest fan of talk shows.

4. Which vampire would you rather date?
Edward Cullen or Bill Compton

I had to Google who Bill Compton was (I haven't read that series). Now, I'm a fan of the Twilight series, but if I had to choose a vampire from there, it would be Jasper Hale. (see below) ;) He's a Texas boy and has that southern gentleman thing going for him!

5. Which Hollywood heart-throb would you rather go to dinner with? 
Brad Pitt or Matthew McConaughey

Neither one of these guys are necessarily my personal pick for heart-throb, but if I had to choose between them I would take Matthew McConaughey. Mainly because he's a Texas boy, we might have more to talk about (I know he likes football). And he looks better shirtless (hey, I had to put a why, so that's my why!) ;)

You made it through my very long edition of Wednesday Ramblings!! Thanks for hanging in there with me!
Have a great day!! :)

    Love the Blog!! What a cool idea!

  2. I think i may have to read that book:) so i can't stand those talk shows either....annoying. tyra banks is on my last nerve..i never watch her. I like Sandra too...gosh! I love blog friends who are so similar to moi:)

  3. I did that challenge earlier this summer. But now that it's over, more people are doing it and part of me wants to do it over! Each version has a few different questions. :)

    Don't go with Tyra. She's really mean and has terrible taste herself. I don't watch Top Model anymore, but I used to. And her outfits were yuck! Go with Stacy! :)

    Oprah and the View ladies both drive me crazy!

  4. Love hearing Matthew McConaughey talk...he's got the awesomest accent...*swoon*! HAHA! :)

  5. Thanks for participating in my blog carnival! :)

  6. I like how you picked all Texas boys! Great picture of Jasper Hale!

    BTW, I love your music picks!

  7. I'm too late to do the blog journal thing for September, but I might hold onto it for October... fun idea!

    And I'm with you on Matt over Brad. I'd rather have George Clooney than either of them, but if I HAD to, I think Matt would be more fun and interesting.

  8. I love Third Day! That is my all time fav Third Day song! Their new song sounds alot like their older stuff which I LOVE!!!

    And Jasper Hale is amazing! He's my fav too!!! Look at some of my Twilight posts :)
