Virginia is for Lovers

It's a great lesson that JT taught me this weekend. Unfortunately it was not a lesson taught in person. Last night was amazing! Pink opened up the show. Her voice is so strong. She's super goofy and seems like someone you could be friends with. She is totally jacked. We later found out this is probably because she can do this. I know you can't really tell, but the whole time she was up there she was belting it out. She didn't miss a beat.

After Pink "got the party started" JT came on in all his yummy goodness. He opened up letting us know how happy he was to be back in the south and that he had heard that Virginia is for lovers. That got the crowd all fired up. Then made the mistake of mentioning that he was from Tennessee. For those of you who may not be aware, UVA lost to Tennessee earlier that day. The crowd erupted in a wave of boos. It was hilarious. He got a kick out of it as well. JT proceeded to put on an amazing show. He danced all over the stage. He also played the piano, guitar and (my favorite) the keytar. Yes, the most amazing instrument out there, the keytar. He started Dick in a Box but stopped shy of the chorus saying that there were youngins in the audience. Timbaland was there and jammed out during intermission as well as a few songs with JT. Sterling and I squealed like little girls when JT played some of his older songs. We only sat down for one slow song that we didn't know the words to. Our section wasn't very enthusiastic. Sterling and I made up for it by dancing the night away and singing at the top of our lungs. All in all it was amazing. I'm totally on a JT high today and (big shock) not getting anything done. Thanks to Sterling for the best Christmas present ever!

A Mean Hand Dealt By Mother Nature

**If you don't enjoy mean hearted rants, you should not proceed to read this post."**

David Beckham is unquestionably a beautiful man. Women from all over the world lust after him. It is as if Mother Nature really took her time to create him and all his gloriousness. This is why I was quite perplexed to read that this girl is his younger sister.

After a brief period of research, I was unable to find much information on Joanne other than this. She is Becks' sister and she just turned 25. It appears they have the same mother, Sandra. The fact that they both have the last name of Beckham, brings me to the conclusion that they have the same father as well.

So let's revisit the acts of Mother Nature. Did she feel that she was a bit too generous in the form of David, so she had to even out the playing field with Joanne? Was she just having a bad day on Joanne's birthday? Is Joanne just inactive and David has had a lot of work done? I would have never guess that Joanne was Becks' sister. This girl looks like she would be Owen Wilson's sister, not Becks'.

I guess I just have to accept the fact that siblings do not always look alike. Come to think of it, my brother and I look nothing alike. Still, her life has to suck. Can you imagine what it has to be like to grow up in his shadow looking like that when he looks the way he does? You know that Posh is making non-witty, ugly jokes behind her back constantly. I would say that maybe Joanne is really smart, or successful in other areas of her life, but I would have found some mention of it on Google. So for now, I will just feel bad for her...and possibly email Bethany about working on getting LA Galaxy tickets.
