Here are a few highlights from my week:
1) I had an interview with the Office of Community Development this week. It was for a clerical position. It would be working for the Ryan White Foundation, which would be cool. I had to sit in this interview with three people asking me questions. I tried to be my normal, sweet self. They will not be calling someone until next week so I hope the phone rings. So pray for me, cross your fingers, or whatever you would do for a little luck.
2) I officially am going to get my cell phone checked out again. While downtown, I was attempting to use the calculator on my phone and it kinda freaked out on me. It kept switching to my phone book and then it started typing in its on numbers. I thought I was in one of the crap thriller movies where everything is a sign or something.
3) After watching Hot Fuzz, I am now convinced the my dream man might just be Simon Pegg. I loved watching it, especially the end. It was so absurb! Also, I realized the Simon has one damn sexy voice. Plus, I finally started watching the show Extras. Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant are the kings of uncomfortable. I have only watched the first three episodes but I am pretty sure the one with Patrick Stewart will be one of my faves. He is such a perv! I also finally watched Volver and Pedro Almodvar still managed to bring the weird and the crazy. Yet it was still heartfelt. And I want Penelope Cruz's body. She was so gorgeous and looked like some member of a sixties girl group.
I promise, this is my last post of the day!
I think this story is cool. It should not matter who you love and you should not let stupid people get in your way.
Ian Johnson, cheerleader get hitched
Sun Jul 29, 11:33 PM ET
Before Boise State running back Ian Johnson married the girl he proposed to on national television, the couple prayed to end prejudice.
Johnson and Chrissy Popadics, the cheerleader he proposed to after scoring the winning points in the Fiesta Bowl against Oklahoma, were married Saturday in a traditional ceremony at Cathedral of the Rockies First United Methodist Church.
Johnson, who is black, has said he received phone calls and about 30 letters, including personal threats from people who objected to his plans to marry his white fiancee. Johnson has not described the threats, and it is unclear where they came from.
The ceremony began with the prayer and ended with the couple jumping over a broom — an African tradition signifying the couple jumping into a new life together.
As they drove away in a stretch limousine, Johnson kissed his new wife and said, "Let's play ball," the Idaho Statesman reported.
Johnson ran for a 2-point conversion on a "Statue of Liberty" to give the underdog Broncos a 43-42 overtime win over Oklahoma on Jan. 1 in Glendale, Ariz. Boise State finished the season 13-0 and No. 5 in the AP Top 25.
It is funny. The people who probaby cheered him on to victory are probably some of the same people sending him threats. They are a young couple so I wish them all the luck in the world!
Also, I just realized that I used my new favorite hot white guy icon for this post.
