View Full Version : Venus' New PenPal

Sep 25th, 2005, 05:53 PM
I found this interesting blog that I thought you guys would enjoy. Venus has been Pen pal with Zack Hexum who is the brother of Nick Hexum of 311 for a few months now. Zack has been interested in learning to play tennis so she had his first tennis lesson from Venus in exchange for guitar lesson.He said Venus has skills on the guitar.

New Obsession
Current mood: inspired.

I officially have a new obsession/pastime. (By the way, can anyone tell me why "pastime" doesn't have two s's since it's pass and time put together? Thanks.) I am officially a budding tennis player. This is part of my continuing quest to make up for having very little to no athletic talent. For evidence read my blog "My Life in a Mini-Van". So, not to name drop, but this is simply too amazing not to share. Venus Williams and I have been penpals for the last few months. I half-jokingly suggested that we swap tennis lessons for guitar lessons after I spent a few days in Texas playing tennis for the first time ever. Last week I gave her a guitar lesson and yesterday I had a tennis lesson with a five-time grand slam champ. I'm hooked! The trick is I need a hitting partner in LA, so if anyone is reading this who plays some tennis and isn't a stalker lemme know!

As I said to my friend about this the other day. If someone would've asked me a year ago if it was more likely that I would get struck by lightning or have a tennis lesson with Venus Williams I definitely would've picked the lightning. Life has lots of surprises in store. By the way, Venus has skills on guitar. It's great to see how someone who's very bright and driven tackles a new task. Good times.

Amazing...Venus has skills with 2 instruments with strings! :D I've always heard that the guitar is the hardest instrument to learn, too. Yay, Venus!

Hello eveyone its the V Deezy hollering back at cha! I need to tell ya that my friend, penpal, and music muse, Zack Hexum, is on tour and you need to go see him. He's touring the midwest right now and you would be making a real bad decision not to go see him. Click here to find the city nearest to you.

You can also buy the album zackhexum.com. I did twice, cause I lost the first one. Go also to my space.com to hear his new songs and be sure to read his blogs if you like laughing really hard.

I've got nothing but love for Zack, you guys are going to love him too!
