Welcome to The Tonight Show
I'm your host Chung Lao.|
Blessy hails from a major city
in TX that begins with a D. But I'm not going to mention
it being that if I did, I would have to turn in the keys to a
certain football team's bandwagon, which at this point, is on
sale for $45 at CarMax. :)
Blessy has just started college
at Oklahoma U.
I first met
in 1996, and she's cool, BUT I do have one piece of
advice for you. If you want to get in good with
Blessy, I would recommend the
spoofed title song from Beauty and the Beast coined by her
cousin, Benj A. You may have heard of him.

Blessy: Haha... I think your site is awesome!! I never EVER see you guys, so I visit
it as often as I can to see what y’all are up to.
Chung Lao: Who do people say you look like?
Blessy: I’ve been told that I look like several different people actually... the latest
being Jeri Ryan from Boston Public. Don’t know ‘bout that.
Chung Lao: What is the most important thing in life?
Blessy: As cliché as it sounds, I think love is the most important thing in life! Loving
God, family, friends, and even ourselves is essential to being truly happy and fulfilled.
Chung Lao: What is your take on George W?
Blessy: I personally think he’s one of the best presidents we’ve ever had. During the
difficult times our country has faced these past couple of years, he has risen to
the occasion and inspired confidence and hope in us, and I think he’s proved to
Chung Lao: What is your major?
Chung Lao: Favorite sports team?
Blessy: The #1 team in the nation, the OU Sooners!!!!!
Chung Lao: Favorite food?
Blessy: Anyone that knows me knows that I love food... any kind, anytime. In an
ideal world though, I’d be surrounded by naan w/chicken tika macchini and
Chung Lao: What is your favorite movie?
Blessy: I have quite a few of these, but A Walk to Remember, Sweet Home
Alabama, and Gladiator are high on my list.
Chung Lao: If you could change something about yourself, what would it be?
Blessy: My fear of heights.
Chung Lao: You’ve just been offered the female lead in an upcoming movie with
Tom Cruise. Do you accept?
Blessy: Probably, but someone like Hugh Jackman is way more appealing.
Chung Lao: Have a favorite book, or something your reading now?
Blessy: Just finished “The Pelican Brief” by John Grisham! “Where the Heart
Is” by Billie Letts and “Extravagant Worship” by Darlene Zschech are a couple
Chung Lao: Are we living in the End Times?
Blessy: It’s possible, but I don’t think we are yet.
Chung Lao: What would it take for you to live in India?
Blessy: A lot more cleanliness and a lot less creepy crawly things.
Chung Lao: Name someone you admire and why.
Blessy: An elder in my church and close family friend, E.M. Mathew, was in a car
accident in June and passed away after being in a coma for a week. We knew
and loved him dearly, and the life he led as a prayer warrior is one thing I will
Chung Lao: If you could have power, fame, or riches, which would you choose,
Blessy: Having to deal with power and fame sounds like a hassle... SO, I would
choose riches —to use towards somehow creatively reaching out to people through
ministry. Oh, and a little shopping spree sounds in order.
Chung Lao: What is something you can’t stand in a person?
Chung Lao: Describe your ideal house.
Blessy: My ideal house is spacious but cozy, comfortable... filled with elegant
colors, hardwood floors and furnishings, dark walls, high ceilings, arches and
pillars, and candles EVERYWHERE.
Chung Lao: What is your favorite passage from the Bible?
Blessy: Jeremiah 29:11: “ For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,
“plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Chung Lao: Were you for/against the war in Iraq, and why?
Blessy: I believe the war was inevitable. We took the initiative to fight this war on
terror, and we accomplished a great deal by removing Saddam from power. Yay!
Chung Lao: How did the passing of Blessan Samuel affect you? What have you
Blessy: Even though I didn’t know him very well, I was deeply affected by Blessan’s
death. remember him being very personable and friendly... always with a smile on
his face! The whole ordeal hit me with the reality that life is short, and since we really
don’t know what the future holds, we’ve gotta make the most of every moment.
Chung Lao: Is the glass half empty, or half full?
Chung Lao: Name a country you would like to visit/re-visit.
Blessy: Australia!!! I’d also like to revisit India and, not only visit family and shop,
but also actually go sightseeing.
Chung Lao: You go to sleep one night, and wake up in the main square of an old
looking village. You get up groggily and walk toward the nearest shop, upon
which the shop owner states in Old English, that you’re in London, England, and
the year is 1530. What do you do?
Blessy: After the initial freaking out, I’d go find some grub.
Finally, leave us with a parting thought.
Blessy: I’ll share a quote that I think is really inspiring...
How far you go in life depends on you being tender with the young,
compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant
of the weak and the strong. Because someday in life you will have
