Oh the Things You'll Find

Oh the things I will decide NEED to be done right now when it is less than 24 hours before an exam in a class I know virtually nothing about and am doing poorly in and need to do well in to have any kind of future:

so far today....

1. cleaned up my shelf where I place things until I get to something I am really avoiding (like studying today) and then go through all the papers and recycle and file as necessary

2. count all the dimes in my globe bank (it is up to like over 700)

3. refold and organize all the clothes that are in my room not in drawers

4. re-read all my random cards I have bought over time to send to people to decide which ones to start sending out...IN FEBRUARY

5. plan on going to see Enchanted possible with (e:jill) after class

6. taking a snack brake every 10-15 minutes...thank god for girl scout cookies and asiago cheese (no not together , well ere and there i suppose they mix in my mouth)

7. go to the post office and wait in a somewhat long line in order to ask about what to fill out to send things internationally. I'm sure it could have been quicker online but it just seemed like I needed to go there and talk to someone.

8. go over all my bank statements and balance my check book

9. organize the christmas gifts I have bought thus far

10. the USA Today Crossword Puzzle followed by the other puzzles in USA today followed by reading USA Today

11. reading (e:strip)

12. Watching Days of our LIves in the first time in what seems like forever

and of course...

13. writing this journal about procrastinating. OK well back to the grind of studying well......maybe a quick check of facebook/gmail/myspace/soap opera digest website ....but then back to studying

Spice Up Your Life

Sometimes I forget how much I love the Spice Girls and all it takes to remind me of the greatness is one little magical phrase "spice up your life". Hearing them always puts me in a better mood, they were musical geniuses!

Look at those gals, truly amazing in all their tacky glory!

August Rush

So me and (e:jill) and (e:diana) went to see August Rush last night. Like I kinda wanted to see it but we had no paper and so just went to the theater and that was the only movie playing at the right time for when we were there that we all kinda wanted to see. Anywho the people next to us in line warned us not to see it but we did anyway. Ok so the beginning was really quite boring but then it got like pretty good , though at times the whole like music is in every sound we hear got super plyaed out and repetivie but there were some really good parts but like anwya any movie like this which if you don't know is about a kid whose mom was forced to give him up kinda and he thinks he will find his paretns through music and so he escapes the orgphange and etc. His parents also only met for one night and then were separated and are tyring to find each other. Anywho, the whole point in movies like tihs is for the big finalle payoff where the lovers find each other and kiss and are reunited and then tey see their kid right? THIS WAS THE BIGGEST LET DOWN EVER! LIke i was all set to be emotionally moved and we were all ready for the tears to start flowing but then it just kinda ends. LIke it is a happy ending of course and the stuff happens but in such an unexciting , unemotional stupid way> It actually left me angry! Like Really angry! Like we all were. Like they just forgot the end of the movie or something! It was ridiculous angry makingful!

But one scene that made it all worth it was withthe kid and jonathan rhy meyers who is the dad and they play guitar together , it was prolly the cutest thing I have ever seen in my entire life, and i have seen some cute things in my life.

Yeah Chrimstas Post II

So I actually have gotten a little christmas shopping done. Like I didn't plan it , I was really mostly shopping for myself was my plan but I bought a few things and got some ideas. Though a couple I am not really sure about. I don't relaly like getting people gift certificates or tihngs they specifically asked for. I know that is what people like but I like to find tings they may not have thought of getting themselves but I feel like they would like. The tihng is that can go terribly wrong. So we'll see. I figure they can always return it! I love buying things in big boxes cuz it just feels like you accomplished something. Like carrying around a huge bag just feels like you got something accomplished in your shopping expedition even if that one thing relaly is ntohing in comparison to like 10 smaller things you could have got. I don't know why. I guess I am a total sucker for retail....

Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

So not one but TWO radio stations are started playing 24 hour Christmas....i mean holiday music yesterday (though I have yet to hear a kwanzaa or chanukah song on them?) anywho...while I don't love that the stores are all christmas decorated already I do love the radio stations playing christmas music! I SERIOUSLY LOVE IT TO DEATH! I am a freako that loves my christmas music. But actually lots of people must. Last year there was an article about how so many radio stations playing chrismtas (oops holiday) music so early that people must not be listening but in fact all data shows ratings go up for stations that play 24 hour holiday music! I seriously love it! Especially the power ballady christmas songs like Oh Holy Night and what not! That is one of my favoritos. I also love Mamacita, donde esta santa clause? But you guys proly never heard that one because I believe it was an exclusive Eckerd radio selectio ntha tme and some of my coworkers fell in love with last year. !! YEAH!!!!!!!

Britney Circa 2004

Due to the writer's strike Jay Leno and David Letterman are in repeats. Jay Leno had a show from 2004 on yesterday with Britney Spears. OMG how crazy to look at her then and now. She was young and single and just having fun. The crowd was ecstatic about her, like wouldn't stop cheering for liek 10 minutes. She was a guest and a perfromer and Jay kept talking about this like beautiful talented person she was. What a difference a few short years make. It was crazy they talked about th etabloid and she was like yeah they make up some crazy stuff and it was all jokey and haha but if only she knew where her life was heading. I don't tink tey even made stuff up as crazy as she became. It was kinda sad really....

Oh My, Cleaning My Room, I Have Crazy

So last week I cleaned my room. Not just a little cleanup, like a hardcore go through everything (and I am a super pack rat so everything is a lot of crap) and dust and vacuum and just relaly clean and try to get rid of some stuff. I actually did manage to get rid of a few things like a 3 foot tall plastic penguin ( i don't even like pneguins but couldn't bear to part with it after I bougth it for (e:mkl) and then relaized they already had one). I also got rid of some shirts that I should have never bought cuz they don't fit me/are not my style but I am a sucker for a sale. But now the penguin has found a partner in (e:mk)'s room and the shirts are gracing people on whom they fit like (e:flacidness). Anywho I decided to take some pictures of the craziness that is my room and my collection of crap/chotchkeys. Here ya go, with a little story for each, though I am sure noon ewill read them , I think some of the stories are quite entertaiinign, enjoy....these things are who I am

image
image
My starting point sorta. I just threw everything on the bed and floor.

image
This was my grandma's good luck troll. She always went to bingo and I loved going with her. I loved going with her and her friends who all loved me and my crazy big afro hair! They always brougth me candy and fun stuff! I loved bingo! I kinda wanna go again!

image
Them's there a lot of mardi gras beads in that cup..hmmmm

image
Oh Trolls! Remember trolls. Like everything I collect I had about 1 million at one point. This is the box of the last surviivng trolls in my life. Mostly they are international ones. I also have the previously shown bingo troll and a buffallo bills troll on permanet display over my bed.

image
Well there he is, the buffalo bills troll. This is above my bed. It has high school memorobilia like pictures and my diploma and graduation cup and stuff. Oh and A christmas castle of course and some of my favorite books. Oh and one of those dogs that barks and does flips. Remember those? They were so high tech in their day!

image
This is just part of my like mixing stick collection. I used to love gettin gthem in like shirley temples at restaurants and started to collect them all.

image
One of as I found whle goin gthrough my whole room, three separate Fay's bags filled with other Fay's bags. I have a slight addiction to Fay's bag collecting. They are freakin awesome , they are so sturdy and you stlil see them everywhere. They give them out at like HObby World or something stlil as their bags. I love them.

image
My godmother made this for me when I was younger. The eyes blink. It is seriusly one of my favorite possessions.

image
This is the duck who I bought cuz he was .72. I just thoguht, how could you not? right? I bought it at the main place mall while waiting for (e:mk) for lunch. It seemed like a steal at the time. It has fallen on my head numerous times when I am trying to open a dresser drawer and that duck ain't light. One day it will prolly kill me...

image
Jill made this cup for me for my birthdya a few years ago! How freakin faboulous is that cup!

image
Hey, what is Keanu Reeves doing in my bed? Aren't you jealous? We used to bring him everywhere. He was (e:beasts) but like all of her memorobilia I eventurally inherited it. We used to bring him everywhere including over the border to Candada. Those were easier times when you could pretend a cardboard cutout celebrity was a real person at customs. They would prolly just shoot you if you tried that now a days.

image
My slightly excessive key chain collection.

image
Remember my Littlest Pet Shop. I love that stuff. This is the last one i have still I think. I sold them all at a garage sale. That is one thing I regret getting rid of (maybe becuase it is the only thing I have ever gotten rid of?) I miss it a lot! But these turltes do crazy things like go in their shell and move their legs. All the littlest pet shops did tricks. The new versions are not so little and not nearly as fun.

image
This gnome I got and you are supposed to register him online take him for a vacation , post the pictures and then pass him on to a new person going osmewhere. I took him with me to Nashville, but then couldn't part with him, so here is he sitting on my dresser finding no new adventures.

image
My favorite stuffed animal of all time. Fuzzy Wuzzy. I love this guy!

image
Just Miscellaneous crapola I cna't part with. When I used to have two rooms befoe my mom turned pauls old room into her sewing room, I had much more display space for all this stuff. Now i just need a mansion for it all.

image
Some more miscellaneous stuff.

image
I love micorphones. I got this my senior year of higshcool for my bday. That year I was super insane and for like a month I would only talk when pretending to use a fake microphone, like would hold up my hand like I was using an invisible micropohne. Like in class I would do this...why wasn't I put into special classes?

image
Remember pillow people?

image
This pillow was from the senior lounge in highschool. Throughout the year I wrote quotes and songs from SBTB on it , cuz I was a freako (read the above microphone post) Anywho on the last day of highscool while I was sitting in the hall crying, what do I see? (e:jill) and (e:beast) walking down the hall carrying my pillow. I was told I wasn't allowed to tkae it but the nthey stole it and got it for me. It was prolly one of the nicest tihngs anyone has ever done for me.

image
Me and (e:maureen) stole this from our math teachers room one year beacause we were made at him. Who does that? It involved an intricate plot of distracting a secretary and stealing the extra room keys from the office and then having a lookout and everything while we stole the pencil sharpener. Once again, why was i kept in a regular school? haha

image
(e:jill) made this for me for my bday one year! I freakin love it. I Had to frame it and when I have a house it will hang in a very prominent place!

image
Shopper's Choice (only one of the best stores ever that is in Northtwon plaza but used to be in the cetnury mall next to northtown plaza that was really not a mall but a dmv, olan mills and shoppres choice store that i loved) They had like tons of bottles of it like way after the show had been off the air. Of course I bought like 10 , gave them to all my friends and kept a copule for me! How awesome is that!

image
My cousin started and used to own The Vermont TEddy Bear Company. This is the bear I got from them. Some are quite valuable , not this one though but i still like it.

image
My first major home and careers project. I remember crazy Mrs. Stocklosa who was an awesome yet terrifying yet awesome yet scary home ec teacher. I brought it up to her to be chekced and she just tore it all up and was like , "oh um that thread was loose you need to redo it" Like I had to do it all again and she acted like it was just a minor error. She was crazy and lovely!

image
The only stuffed animals left in my room. Excpet fuzzy wuzzy, the elephant and lumiere who are elsehwere in my room. This is a much pared down group of animals. The rest unfortuantely are in the attic due to space issues.

image
This was my second home and careers project!

image
This was a piggy bank that my nonno and nonna used to collect their change in and then me and (e:paul) split it up at the end of each year. It always seemed like soooo much money I didn't even know what to do. In reality it was prolly like 10 dollars but I freakin thought it was a pot of gold. On top is a piece of my nonna's cooking apron. It is prolly one of my favorite things I have. Like it reminds me of her so much! I miss her tons all the time still!

image
And here it is , the complete crazy dresser of knickknakcs. Mind you I have the desk of knicknaks, the above the bed shelf of knicknakcs, the hanging knickkancks and also boxes of knicknacks but this is the piece de resistance. You can see some of my fancy glassware and shot galsses that I colect here. And it is all framed perfectly by a Can't hardly Wait poster. Only the best movie ever!
