I got Sumthin T' Say!



Didn't Mandisa sing that song Tuesday night. This girl has some serious voice pipes. My girlfriend called me and said, she is the best singer. Do you think that voters would let her win even though she is heavy? We both agreed that her weight will certainly hindered her in this competition. Isn't that sad that weight can stop people from achieving something? We need to change and vote on people because they are great at what they are competing in and not because of their weight, race, or sex.


Thanks to Georgia Peach and Envizable who have really supported me as an author. To all those who I considered my blogging family members, thank you so much for your vote. I am so proud to be in this contest with major authors who are doing extremely well in this arena. I am humbled to even be in this competition at this point in my writing career. Thanks so much. This contest will not end unitl April 15. So for those who haven't voted yet, you can by Just go to: http://www.cushcity.com/displaypages/votingnew.php, scroll down to Rose Jackson-Beavers and click then go down to end of list and click vote. Why do I want to end up in the top 10 position? This is free publicity for me. I could never afford this kind of publicity for several years. The cost of publicity runs about 6500.00 per quarter to get this kind of publicity. It not only helps me but it also gives exposure for my other authors. I need your vote.

I was tagged by Brooklyn Babe: (thought I forgot, didn't you?)

Here goes:


Accent - This is weird. I am a little country (southern) and professional (speaks very well) too. Folks claim I sing my last word.

Bra size - A proud 38 D. Is that good or bad?

Chore I hate - Mowing the lawn. I did this alot after my older brothers left home.

Dad's name - L. J. When I was little I used to make up names for him like Larry Joe, Lawrence James, I didn't want people to know that my dad and his brothers all had initials for names.

Essential make-up - Barely there, or something in the brown or deep family Lip stick, and eye liner. Takes something special to put on more make-up. I hate base make up. I feel trapped wearing it.

Favorite perfume - Samsara. Only thing I have worn for 10 years. Everything else seems too sweet or makes me weak on my stomach. Except Sweet Vanilla lotion which I have to sleep in.

Gold or Silver? - Both. Love to wear pendents on my suits. Do not wear any other jewerly except wedding ring and watch.

Hometown - East Boogie...East St. Louis, Illinois.

Insomnia - Always have this. Don't like to sleep at all unless I am sick. Sleep scares me. I feel helpless like I don't know what is going on. Mother and sister suffer the same thing. Weird huh.

Job Title - Director of Parent Services

Kids: One child. 17. Leaving for private college this summer. Don't know what my husband and I will do when she is away. She's been our life.

Mom's Birthplace - The Delta. See if you can guess where that is .

Number of Sexual Partners - When I write I am a whore that's why I use a pen name. But in reality I am and have always been a one man woman.

Overnight Hospital Stays - Once in 1979 (nothing was wrong-nervous stomach. Leaving for college and was scared) and again in 1991.

One time.Phobia(s) -Car breaking down on desert lonely highway.

Quote - Stupid is as stupid does. (Is that a quote?) from Forest Gump

Religion - Seventh day Adventist

Siblings -I have 3 sisters and two brothers living. 2 brothers died of cancer.

Two I'm tagging - Georgia Peach & Michelle Buckley

...
Unnatural hair colors I've worn -Blond streaks in college.

Vegetable I refuse to eat - I can't think of any vegetable that I hate, don't like green peas but would eat them if that was all available.

Worst habit - Thinking with my mouth open. Husband hates that too.

X-rays I've had - mammogram

Yummy foods I make - Brocolli and rice pie, and stuffing.

Zodiac sign - Capricorn. The Goat.

No way, you're SDA!!?? So I am! Well, actually, so was I! :) I grew up SDA, but kind of broke away from it when I starting living on my own a couple of years ago. My folks still ask me to come to church every Saturday morning, though, and I always tell 'em, sorry can't make it out of bed. It's amazing you don't like sleeping. As long as you're not dead tired, I guess it works for you! I need at least 10 hours of sleep to function normally. And even then it's not enough. Most of the time, I'm like a walking zombie.

Sorry, I'm rambling. I got excited about the SDA thing! Hah! :)

From one 38D to another, I think it is both a good thing AND a bad thing. Do you ever get killer backaches? It drives me nuts because I hurt so bad when I run on the treadmill for a long time (which I do about every day, and that's even doubling up on the sports bras!)

As far as Mandisa, I'm not familiar with this singer, but if that's a pic of her, she's absolutely stunning.

***Double_Oh_No*** said...

P.S. The Delta...would that be in Mississippi?

Jez Chill said...

I confess... I'm vote for american idol via my cell phone. :-) I agree, girl can sing! But looking at past winners, her weight won't make a difference if she brings it every week.

Stacy-Deanne said...

Hey Rose, the ITL interview is up at my blog! Check it out. I can't wait to read your comment. I also wanted you to comment on my jealousy post on my regular blog. Love you! Don't be a stranger.

Carolina Introvert said...

I'm with you on the green peas thing. I'm not even sure peas are really food.

I think Mandisa is incredible and I don't think her weight will be an issue at all. She is stunning and I look forward to hearing her sing every week. She's "good people" - you can see it in her face.

Dr. Deborah Serani said...

I caught the show on Tuesday, I think they are all great. I'd be a terrible judge because I wouldn't want anyone to lose!

I loved when Mandisa took her shoes off...personally, I think that it was her being true, and just being herself...how many other people would really do that? And this week...WOW...she looked simply stunning, and she rocked the house...I would like to say that her weight is not a factor, but the sad reality is that it is. Hopefully people can look past that and keep her in the game...she is just as deservinjg of the American Idol title, just like everyone else, if not moreso.

I hope that you have a great weekend!

Love,
Sarah

My lovely Lady Rose,

It has being a long time I posted anything on your blog. I read it all though. U know how that goes!!! after getting home 10pm the only energy i have is read :)

Yes I think Mendisa can sing regardless the outcome she will be successful. I think Chris D, I can not remember surname, will win. That dude so POPish. I do not think her weight is problem for her because most ppl who vote are not in their best or good shapes. So she is cool with that.

Love you,
NO_the_GAME

NellaBella said...

I agree with you, wieght shouldnt matter, its your peronailty and how much you want to do what you wanna do, something that your heart is set to. Not weight.

Ruben said...

Organized Noise said...

I love these meme's. They are always information. Thanks for sharing.

Shawn said...

nice meme

ByeBye said...

This is my gurrllll I love me some Mandisa.. no one can sing like this sista and she has a classy style all of her own. I'm supporting her all the way to the end!

Rose said...

Cinthia: Yes I am a SDA. Since I was fourteen years old. Isn't that special? See I knew that you and I jive together for a reason. I wish I could sleep but I just can't do it unless I have a house full over and then I can rest knowing that I am with so many folks. So in a way when it is only my daughter, husband and I, I don't want to sleep because I want us to be safe throughout the night. That's weird huh! My mother, sister and I suffered the same thing...

Rose said...

Double Oh-No.. I actually like them. So proud of them.. I can do a c cup but always get a d. But I am probably a little heavier than you and can carry them. But I feel sorry for the ones who are over 40dd and up...those are hard to carry...
Mandisa is a beautiful woman. I want her to win..or Taylor....

Rose said...

Double O- that's right-the Mississippi is it..

Rose said...

jez chill: Mandisa is a great singer and that's all we are souppose to be voting on...singing and personality but they must have both...

Rose said...

Stacy: I checked both out. You know that you are my girl and you are definitely doing your thing. Congrats on all your success...

Rose said...

Carolina: green peas yuck...Mandisa yeah!

Rose said...

Dr, Deb:
Voting would be hard if I was a judge...I like many of them but Mandisa and Taylor sends chills through me. For me that is the sign of a great singer when they can make you feel it thourgh your bones...

Rose said...

For the lonely" Sarah you know she is real.. remember when she told Simon how he hurted her when he called her huge or something...he felt so bad. She is a sweet heart of a person with a great big beautiful voice.

Rose said...

Teenlife: I miss you girl. Glad you are back...

Rose said...

No the game: I miss you when you don't post. You have to stay in my life...I know you are tired but let me know all is well. Love you too.

Rose said...

Ruben and Envizable: We got something in common, Mandisa. She totally can sing... I can't wait to see what she is gonna do every week...

Rose said...

Organized noise and Shawn:
Thanks...

The Gig said...

You go girl, I finally got to vote. The last time I tried, I couldn't get into the site. Hope you win.

Interestingg -- you are SDA too? So am I. What a coincidence.
