Pool Hall Junkie

Zack decided I should learn how to play pool. I thought I would suck but I'm actually pretty good! Somewhat.

The Final Countdown

I think I figured out my school scenario. I've always wanted to live in Washington, so I'll transfer there for my junior and senior year. I had actually planned to before school even started, but now I'm doin' it fo sho. I just hate school right now, and I really need a change. The only joy I seem to be getting from it is when people ask "how do you like Westminster?" and I say "eh" and put an apathetic look on my face. So much for believing college holds the best years of life.

But aside from school, everything else is going really well. Exceptionally well. Incredible really. The only thing that I would have changed these past weeks is that Kristen Stewart got cast as Bella in the Twilight movie. Not because I am incredibly jealous (because let's face it, EVERYONE wants to be Bella), but because she's a terrible actress. Bleh I just don't think she's good. At all. In the words of my mother, "That's alright, they're terrible books. She should be fine." My mother is obviously crazy.

I was house sitting last week, it was so nice to have a whole house to myself! So THAT'S what it feels like to not live at home...

OH and I've noticed there are more Thanksgiving references and sales AFTER the actual holiday. But it seems Christmas has officially begun. Do you remember a time when Christmas started like, a week or two after December started? I miss the good ol' days.

Ah, the good ol' days.

Song du Jour

If someone were to ask me to make a list of my top 10 favorite songs, it would be impossible. But this song is definitely in my top 5.

Wonderwall by Oasis

Today is gonna be the day
That they're gonna give it back to you
By now you should've somehow
Realized what you gotta do
I don't believe that anybody
Feels the way I do about you now

Backbeat the word was on the street
That the fire in your heart is out
I'm sure you've heard it all before
But you never really had a doubt
I don't believe that anybody feels
The way I do about you now

And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead the way are blinding
There are many things that I would
Like to say to you
I don't know how

I said maybe
You're gonna be the one who saves me
And after all
You're my wonderwall

Today was gonna be the day
That they'll never bring it back to you
By now you should've somehow
Realized what you're got to do
I don't believe that anybody
Feels the way I do about you now

And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead the way are blinding
There are many things that I would like to say to you
But I don't know how

Said maybe
You're gonna be the one that saves me
You're gonna be the one that saves me
And after all
You're my wonderwall
You're my wonderwall
You're my wonderwall
You're my wonderwall

Hair Question

Do I keep this brown hair I've got now, or should I switch to a honey-ish blonde that's dark underneath?

I need opinions...

A Quick Update

It's been over a week since I began this vegetarian lifestyle. The only slip up I had was I ate a caesar salad on the first day (for those who don't know, caesar dressing is made with anchovy extract). But, it's been really good. I was struggling a bit at first because we have SO MUCH MEAT in this house, but my mom bought a lot of vegetarian friendly foods for me and I'm very grateful for that! I've been thinking about all the food I'll miss. Bacon. Cafe Rio pork. ...that's about all I can think of for now. So, I guess that's all I'll really miss.

I cannot believe, however, that my life is going the way it is. I finally feel like I know who I am. It was maybe six months of solitary confinement that led me to discover myself. It was difficult no doubt, but I'm recieving exceptional karmic rewards.

A quick shoutout to my ShawneePants, for I love her dearly!!! Keep it real, homegirl!

Writer's Strike

  • Hollywood's film and television writers went on strike early this morning after last-ditch efforts to negotiate a deal with the major studios failed Sunday.
  • Both sides are girding for what many believe will be a long and debilitating strike, potentially more disruptive than the 22-week walkout by writers in 1988, which cost the entertainment industry an estimated $500 million.
  • Even as negotiators were hunkered down behind closed doors, strike captains were sending e-mail notices to guild members and guild directors, informing them where to show up today on the picket lines.
  • Earlier in the day, writers at the guild's West Coast headquarters in the Fairfax district had loaded their picket signs onto trucks.
  • The union had organized a network of 300 strike captains who were ready to stage daily pickets at all the major studios, including Disney and Warner Bros. as well as CBS Television City and NBC headquarters in Burbank.
  • "When we asked if they would stop the clock for the purpose of delaying the strike to allow negotiations to continue, they refused," Counter said.
  • Several TV studios have reminded employees that they have the option to resign from the guild and still work. "We're not concerned about our members going fi-core," said Jeff Hermanson, assistant executive director for the Writers Guild of America, West. He added that only a handful of members have financial core status today.

Well that's dumb.

I'm annoyed for reasons I'm not even about to get into on here. I won't get into them on my Myspace either so you'll just know that I'm annoyed and I just wish people weren't so mean and dumb.

But onto lighter notes!

Today I did some work at IHC for my temp job and the ZCMI mall is under all sorts of construction so I had to find a new way to get to the office. When I was crossing main street I felt like Marlo Thomas in That Girl. You ever watch that show? Well--THERE'S A SPIDER ON THE FLOOR!!!--it was just kind of fun exploring downtown. Well, the one street I was

Day 2 of Mission: Vegetarian went very well. I'm actually not feeling too well right now'll wear off. I'm really enjoying this new diet. AND I've recently become addicted to coffee. There's this coffee shop in Sugarhouse, Dolce Coffee, I recommend it to anyone who enjoys java. Mmm.

Final note: has anyone seen my parents? I haven't seen them in like, 2 days haha.

Goin' Veg

I decided I'm going to try to make the switch to vegetarianism.

Wish me luck!

Funky Town!

Ladies and gentlemen, I am a technology wizard.

I performed some iPod surgery today and long story short, my iPod is back up and running.

I've never heard such sweet, sweet music.

Question du Jour

Is Cool Whip like the Miracle Whip of whipped cream? I mean Miracle Whip is like mayonaise...but it's not...and Cool Whip is like whipped cream...but it's not...

I guess I'll forever remain curious.

Karma Cheetah

I'm getting karmic rewards for my crappy week/life.

It's only Wednesday but I've had the best week. I realized I have friends and I love them more than anything. I would do anything for them! I'm so happy to have these people in my life.

And, although I hate saying these things in blogs, I'm giddy over someone. Blerg. No, it's a good thing! Wee!

Yesterday I saw Into The Wild. I didn't think I'd ever sit down and watch that. I'm glad I did. He kind of said and did everything I wish I could...I'm off to explore the infinite abyss!

Conversations of the Champions

Yesterday, ShawneePants and I were discussing the upcoming Sweeney Todd movie. SP LOVES Sweeney so she's practically on the verge of always peeing her pants. Anyway, she quoted a bit of the play ("So it is you...Benjamin Barker..." and BB says "Not Barker, not Barker...Todd now. Sweeney Todd.")

So, I asked her how Benjamin Barker comes up with the prison name "Sweeney Todd." She said it never says why.

"That's dumb," I say, "That's like me getting out of prison and someone saying, 'hey! Rebecca Frost!' and I respond, 'No. It's Firey Martha now.'"

"I'm totally calling you that from now on," she replies.

ShawneePants and I have the weirdest conversations.

Why, yes, I do have a vampire obsession.

Okay it's not so much "obsession" as "interest." Some of my favorite shows are Buffy and Angel, I loooooooooooooooove the Twilight series (Mmm. Edward.) and right now I'm reading a book called Vamped, a book in which the world is all vampires, humans are rare and the protagonist finds a little girl, his "little Happy Meal" but decides to keep her and raise her. It's so...interesting...

You know, given the choice, I would indeed like to be vampire and live forever. Could you imagine? Being pretty AND living forever? I could get in on that. I'd have to go "vegetarian" like the Cullens. Again, I could get in on that.

But, I haven't really been into the "classic" vampire. Your Lestats, Draculas, Count Choculas...guess it's more of a new age kind of thing.

Alright, so I loved The Graduate. But...I cannot bring myself to write this response paper! The movie had me during the opening sequence. I didn't bother to take notes because I figured I'd go out and buy it (I did, right after that class) and then watch it and take notes from there. Have I??? Of course not! Laziness prevails!

Here's a story about what happened to me today: I'm walking past a Jiffy Lube today and there are two guys holding signs. One says, "hi" and I say "hi" and I keep walking. Then when he thinks I can't hear him, he says, "want your oil changed?" He laughs and high-fives his little pal. The point? My prettiness is such a burden. Bah! I changed my hair color in hopes that I would look more "plain" because this stuff kept happening (waiting at a bus stop, walking down the street, stepping out my front door, breathing!) however, it seems to have had the opposite effect. Apparently I'm hotter--I have friends who can second that. Bah!

I was thinking today, as I was trying on half of my own wardrobe, that if I were to audition for the Twilight movie, I would make a dang good Bella. But that's just my own opinion. Man, I REALLY hope they don't mess up that movie. Edward has set the bar high for mortal boys. I think that now no one will ever be good enough for moi. Hmm...perchance I need myself a vampire.

Alright. I'm off to watch The Graduate. Blerg.

Major Changes

I plan on changing my major to Communications today. The question remains: multimedia or public relations?

"The public have an insatiable curiosity to know everything. Except what is worth knowing. Journalism, conscious of this, and having tradesman-like habits, supplies their demands."

What I Wouldn't Give to be in a Wes Anderson Film

Strawberry Jamz

I'm new to this whole..."blogger" site. But I'm no newbie to blogging! While Myspace is exciting, it must not be exciting enough if I have to venture out into the world of blogging sites (Note: there will be a "blog" word count at the end of this post).

Well well well, where does one begin. I guess I could start with what's been on my mind all day today. I saw Across the Universe yesterday. I know, I know, you're thinking, "What? A hippie like you hasn't seen such an amazing movie yet? How dare you!" How dare me indeed. It was, in a word, amazing. This is film that has all my favorite things: The 60's era, Beatles music, a gorgeous British boy who is artistic AND an incredible singing voice?! Oh AND Eddie Izzard and Bono? What are the chances? The soundtrack is beautifully done. Evan Rachel Wood has a gorgeous voice (I'll forgive her for dating Marilyn Manson...for now...) and the direction, photography and choreography was outstanding. I'd recommend it for anyone. Well. Okay, whoever is into that kind of stuff (which I am).

I decided that summer 2009 I'm going to volunteer in Brazil for the summer. I would do it this upcoming summer but all my friends are coming home from their missions and I miss them! I want to hang out with them. Also, I need to save up for the volunteer program/school. It was a choice, personally, between South Africa or Brazil but I decided on the latter because I would like to work on my mad Spanish skillz. But check it out! >>>>

This upcoming weekend is up in the air, I have made plans to visit my friend in Cedar City, but if I can't find anyone to cover my shift (read: if anyone loves me enough to come in for a Saturday) then I can't go, and I would be immensely distraught. But work is good, school is decent, on my last essay in English I got an A/A so I'm feeling pretty good about that. And what does a normal eighteen year old girl do on a Friday night in? Why, watch Wishbone reruns, of course! I figured I'd try out this blogger thing and see if I like it. All signs point to yes? Si senor.

Quote du Jour: "I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together."

"Blog" count: Only 5. How anti-climatic.
