I usually leave the crushes to Toya but I figured since I had one I would share.

Yesterday was my birthday and Toya being the great roomie that she is bought me tickets to see Anberlin, who are without question my favorite rock band. It was the perfect ending to a perfect day. Let me tell you a little about my day and how it lead up to my new crush.

I woke up to the phone ringing. An old friend wanted to wish me a happy birthday and tell me what I was getting for my birthday. I am now the proud owner of www.blackgirlslikeus.com. No more piggy backing on blogspot. (Well actually, 'til we get some web space we'll be piggy backing.) Anyway I got up, listened to Luke's "It's you birthday" and opened presents. I picked up my Felicity:Season 2 box set from the mall down the street and had pizza and cake and ice cream for breakfast. Then the shopping began. I figured since I was grown and sexy I could spend grown and sexy $$$$ at the big ANUS mall across town. Bath and Body Works needs to send me a personal hand written card from Mr. Works himself for all of the money I blew in that store. Mr. Skechers can sign his name to the card also. Mr. Old Navy didn't do me right this year. All the jeans had my butt hanging out. Maybe it's just me but when you're shaped like a woman (i.e shapely hips, thighs and butt) you CAN NOT wear those low rise jeans. Those things are for women who are shaped like 10-yr-old boys. Straight up and down. Holla if you feel me. Shoot, holla if you're tired of having your BUTT hanging out for all the world to see. All I want is a pair of jeans that cover my crack. I know I have dumps like a truck but should I be penalized for that? I think not. I digress. So after spending all that I would responsibly allow my self to spend, I headed home to get ready for the concert. Anberlin was FABU. Pure unadulterated, screaming out the lyrics, swaying with your eyes closed, emo finger in the air, rock music. During the last song, which was Readyfuels, which just happens to be my favorite song, Steven, the lead singer looks right at me which got me even more amped. After the last chorus as he was saying his thank yous Steven points at me and said, "Happy Birthday, TIA!!" I thought my head was gonna explode. Turns out Ann Marie, who's a friend of mine and Toya's and the band's booking agent asked him to do it. It was more than I could handle.

I got to talk to Steven after the show and well...it was over. The crush was on. It's more of a little girl with a crush on the teacher sort of thing. So if Steven's girlfriend is reading this, don't worry. I'm no threat.

Yes she is. Tia is hot and she has hot girl modeling pictures to prove it.- Her number 1 fan, Toya
