Ok now for the fact:
What is the "Ring of Fire"?
"There are about 600 active volcanoes on the face of the Earth. About half of them range along a belt of active volcanoes from the southern tip of South America north to Alaska, then west to Asia, and south through Japan, the Philippines, Indonesia and New Zealand. This is the "Ring of Fire", marking the boundary where the plates that cradle the Pacific Ocean meet those plates that hold the continents surround the ocean." from Don't Know Much About Geography.
Or.. you can say it's about LOVE.
"Although "Ring of Fire" sounds somewhat ominous, the term refers to falling in love - which is what June Carter was experiencing with Johnny Cash at the time. Some sources claim that June had seen the phrase, "Love is like a burning ring of fire," underlined in one of her uncle A. P. Carter's Elizabethan books of poetry. She worked with Kilgore on writing a song inspired by this phrase as she had seen her uncle do in the past. In the 2005 film, Walk the Line June is depicted as writing the song while agonizing over her feelings for Cash despite his drug addiction and alcoholism as she was driving home one evening. She had written: "There is no way to be in that kind of hell, no way to extinguish a flame that burns, burns, burns"." Wikipedia

Morena the Cat that showed up under my old apartment. I made the mistake of feeding her and so now she's mine. I brought her with to the new place a year ago and I'm glad she hasn't brought any scorpions into the house. She is usually in the D-wing of the house bcuz now my Ruby terrorizes the poor thing. This is due to the fact of having a bad influence in the house while Moscow Cindy was visiting a few years ago (HENRY!!!) I just love this pic..

MMMMMM boys.. I can't even imagine working backstage at a fashion show with all these hot men undressing in front of me. Then again, maybe I'd become immune to them after seeing so many. I get my cute boy fix at the biker events. Seems to be one of the few places that hot men exist in this State-when they come from other states HA.
All these pics were snagged from the LOVE magazine blog. They had a crap load of hot male model pics.
If I could be around these hot guys now I'd prob be feeling a lot better healthwise. This damn cold is killing me. I wish this cold would dump me as quickly as boys do. I'd def rather blow something else than my nose. HAR HAR JUST KIDDING... or am I?
My best friends new addition to her family will be coming from West Africa-Ghana. Soon she will go to sign some papers/finalize and then she'll have to fly back again to pick her up and bring her home. I may be the lucky girl that gets to go with to help her out. How amazing would that be? Africa with one of my best friends to pick up her new baby!!! RAD. Fingers crossed.Congrats to you J and BK!
