Amy Lee

Welcome, gentle reader, to Shay's Word Garden, a place of refined intellectual sophistication and--

Omg. Forget that! Today I want to post about Amy Lee, the singer and driving force behind the band Evanescence. She is a talented and attractive young woman who--

Strike that! She's hawt. I mean, the woman is ON FIRE. Let me just go stick my head in the freezer so I can think straight. Lambs, this gal is not just some garden-variety, mass-produced, plastic diva du jour. Nuh uh. Yes, she's beautiful, but it's who she is that makes her exceptional. She's smart, boldly creative, and not afraid to tell her truth, which turns out to be the truth for lots of her listeners. Why would I admire such traits? Get out. I'm lucky if I can dress myself and not pour coffee on my Cheerios.

Besides. Dark-haired unconventional smart chick who can sing like anything? There is something sexier than that? What? I'm asking. See? There isn't anything.

Blame Mojo for this post. He got me thinking about Amy Lee. Then posted a video. You've thrown down the gauntlet, Sir. I warn you, I fight like a girl. You're doomed! LOL.

Gauntlet? What gauntlet? I'm happy to share. And give my bobbleheaded agreement to all of the above. (Except maybe the bit about the Cheerios. Never been a big breakfast fan myself. But if I were I could easily see me making the coffee error.)

But if it will forestall bloodshed, I will happily assume any responsibility that might be mine for this marvelous collection of Amy-ness. ;)

I do so love her, too! In fact, I want to BE her in my next reincarnation. Now I'm going to go find one of her CD's and put it on. Thanks! Blessings!

Making some popcorn, grabbing a thick bar of dark chocolate and settling in for the fun :)

I was listening to them a few weeks ago and my son told me, "Yanno Dad, they're just a Goth Country band"

So, I like it anyway ;-)

She is a beauty, and I love her voice ! I love her song "Broken" with Seether.

I'm not familiar with her, but I do know that band's name. Laughing out loud over the possibility of pouring coffee on the Cheerios. I think I've done that. :)

Howard Stern said on his show that she squeaks like a chicken. If ever there was a man with a tiny penis...
