It's been four years to the day that Geri Halliwell, a.k.a. Ginger Spice, left the Spice Girls. Most people wouldn't really give it a second thought, but it was a flashbulb memory for me...

I remember the day it happened like it was yesterday. We had just had a wicked thunderstorm the day before, and because of El NiƱo, hadn't had a snow day that year. My sister woke me up that morning and told me "Leon, Ginger left the Spice Girls!". I was not believeing her. I had read that she missed a concert in Oslo before, but I hadn't thought much about it. THat day, we got our first snow day of the '97-98 school year (Well, Storm Day to be more specific), so I went with my sister to the local community college, hwere I immediately hopped on a computer and learned the truth for myself. My favorite Spice Girl (Nest to Melanie B., a.k.a. Scary) had left the group.

So, I look back on that day today. I was totally into the Spice Girls then (Even to the point of driving my friends nuts talking about them). Most people wouldn't think much of it, but listening to their music helped me not care about what other people thought of me. I remember that when I first started listening to them, I would have my mom get the CDs for me. I'd go into the store and hope that no one saw me buying their singles. You have to understand that, at that time, I lived and attended school in the inner city, so anything outside of hip-hop and gangsta rap was considered taboo. But I started to like the music so much, I eventually stopped caring if anyone knew about it (And even got some of my schoolmates to "spice up their lives"!!) I learned that it was more important to be yourself than to worry about people's opinions, definitely those of people who don't know or are about you! Nowadays, I listen to pretty much whatever I want, and I don't care any which way! If I want to blast Incognito MP3s, I will! Or, if I want to ride down the street with Linkin Park blaring from the car stereo, who's to stop me? Even if I feel like pulling out some Selena remixes, you better believe I will be singing along! And if someone doesn't like it, well, then they just don't like it!!
GIRL POWER!!! SPICE UP YOUR LIFE!!!

Anyway,
UPDATE!!! UPDATE!!! The new layout has been chosen. This time, I went with a Mega Man layout (ala Marvel vs. Capcom). This will probably be updated a bit, but this is the way I'm gonna go.

Also, notice the new name of this blog: Magnetic Ocean. This is actually the title of a song by Incognito, my absolute favorite band (Earth, Wind, & Fire is second). Incognito's music rules, but I think it's underrated here in the States (Instead they play Celine Dion on the jazz stations... yes, Celine "I-Am-Zee-Greatest-Deeva-in-Zee-World" Dion). I tell you, folks just don't appreciate good music!!

Honestly, my family makes me crazy sometimes! I love them.....but if I have to go through one more plus-size clothing store, I'll friggin SCREAM!!!! Reminds me of when I was little and I had to sit on the window sill at the front of Marianne Plus while the rest of my family took their precious time shopping. Maybe that's why I hate shopping so much. I mean, for video games, toys, and music I don't mind. But I don't like going through clothing stores. I usually get what I need every few months during one trip at Value City (Yes, I'm a discount lover. I can't pay full retail for anything!!), or I'll get certain clothing items as necessary. But having to try things on is a killer...which is why I don't buy suits often!!! Oh, yeah, a new test result:
