Blast from the past...

No, this post isn't about the movie; though it is one Brendan Fraser can be proud to have his name attached too. I'm actually talking about grocery shopping to the soundtrack of S Club 7, a popular British pop band (1998-2003); consisting of members Tina Barrett, Paul Cattermole, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh, Jo O'Meara, Hannah Spearritt and Rachel Stevens.

The group rose to fame by starring in their own BBC television series, Miami 7, in 1999. Over the five years they were together, S Club 7 had four UK #1 singles, One UK #1 album, a string of hits throughout Europe, including a top-ten single in the United States, Asia, Latin America, and Africa. They recorded a total of four studio albums, released eleven singles and went on to sell over seventeen million albums worldwide.

Their tv show's, movies, and album's were also very popular in my household. My sister and I were practically obsessed with them as children (debating on which one we got to “be” and which one we the band could live without) quickly forgetting them as we got older and they stopped appearing on the American airwaves. Which leads me to the excitement of not only hearing their songs while in the middle of grocery shopping but also recognizing what I was listening too. Even though I don't listen to pop now in days I'm still going to make room for this band on my i pod if only for the cheesy nostalgia of rocking out to the past.

Have you ever noticed that we always seem to put the people we love or care about upon a pedestal? Its odd isn’t it; we put them up to where we imagine them perfectly, no mistakes, no flaws. Just they’re ever so perfect, and then when they fall because everyone does, we feel betrayed, hurt, and upset. We know they’re not perfect because no one is, but for some reason the fact that they fell from that pedestal, hurts and we try to make it perfect again, make them perfect. In the end we can’t because they never were, and that pedestal sits there staring and mocking you. Because in your mind they failed, and you failed. You didn’t get that perfect ending, and they never appear perfect again. It takes along time to realize that they never should have been put up on that pedestal, in the first place but it never truly sinks in, because we liked the way they looked from up there and we fear to get to know the person who fell.

I know, I know...

I’ve been a bit lazy about posting my thoughts. A few friends have actually called my attention to it and to them I say “I’m sorry but it’s new and well I just decided to blow it off for a while.” The important thing is I’m working on getting into a routine of posting; even if it isn’t all that grand of a post. Tonight, however I’m actually going to cheat and just share with you two posts from Bethany Joy Galeotti (Haley from One Tree Hill), she’s an amazing woman… and I can say that with full confidence even though I don’t know here personally. Ok, I could be wrong but I’m perfectly comfortable living in my fantasy land. Also, I’m going to share a post from because I found it to be very entertaining and figured you might enjoy it as well.
So, enjoy and I promise I’m working on getting this apart of my routine. I have the thought’s, I just need to you know write them down. and posted by Bethany Joy Galeotti at
