wow. sorry guys. i haven't posted in quite a while, and it's weird because i usually have many crazy things to post about here and there, but i just haven't had any impetus the past couple o' weeks. it's just weird for me. well, onto what been going with me::

last saturday, my aunt and i went to my great-uncle's house (he was moving and needed help) and we found my great-grandma's trunk in a corner of the packed basement. inside the trunk was an old photo album with TONS of old photos of my family, and when i say old, you know i mean old. some of the pics were daguerreotypes! those are the metal pictures they took in the 1800s! so some of these pictures are back from the turn of the century! ah, ok. i'm rambling. i just think that this is so cool. here are the pictures, and if you'd rather look at them somehwere else, they're on my Photobucket and my Flickr (that's new, by the way, i set it up the other week. it's really cool. there's also some pretty pictures of my bsckyard there too.)

he was so sexy you just had to have him?? (inside joke, hahaha)Collapse )

American Idol Top 36 [Feb. 12th, 2009|03:50 pm]

[Current Music |The Time Of My Life--David Cook (Hmmm...Unusually Appropriate...)]

ok. who doesn't love american idol? i mean, come on. you all know you've watched at least one full season. everybody watched at least one audition show, i know that. and most of us probably skipped the horribly lame seasons. (cough, season 6, cough) and ALL of us watched season 5, i know that too. anyways, i'm getting off track. on Wednesday, season 8's top 36 were picked and i just had to say a couple of things about some of them. so, here goes:::::

i really like Adam Lambert. he's great, and my aunt's favorite, so she insisted i post him.

AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! i don't know why or how, but i LOVE THIS KID. his name is Alex Wagner-Trugman and is my favorite, hands down, this season. maybe it's because he just seems like the one with the most sanity, maybe it's because he looks like my best friend that i'm in love with, maybe it's just random. who knows? but i do love him.

her name is Jackie Tohn, and she's another great contestant. she's unique and a great singer.

haha, i like this guy. Steven Fowler is his name, and i think i like him because he made and idiot of himself anf yet he still had enough to get those prude-ish brit judges to let him in.

Megan Corkrey is another one of my faves. she's not obnoxious or stupid, just sensible and down-to-earth. we need more celebrities like that out there, if she wins.

well...this is Anoop Desai. yeah.....well, this one i didn't put on here to love. i mean, whatever, i don't hate him. but the whole situation is just weird. just, really?
did this guy really just get on to american idol. you say yes? well, ok, then. i guess that's fine....

her name is Kristen McNamara. and i think she's good, and i may turn out to like her a lot.

here's Danny Gokey and just--Aww, who doesn't love this guy??? i mean, he's been through a lot, but he still stuns us with his voice and him and his best freind's bond is so amazing and real. I think i can safely say that, in general, America loves him.

hmmmm. this is Von Smith and he's another one that i really, really like for no particular reason, he just seems cool.

you gotta love Lil Rounds. somehow, she already had a rockin nickname before the show, which shows me that she's ready. i bet she's had it since she was like 4. my first decent nickname i got in 8th grade, and people just called me Hether for some reason. yeah, i don't know.

haha. here's Nick Mitchell, a.k.a Norman Gentle. you know him. i really think his whole thing is hilarious, because there's always that small chance that he's just messing with everyone by "switching" back and forth. hahahahaha...etc..

ahahahahahahahahahaahaaaaah! this is Nathaniel Marshall. I think he's great and hilarious in a good way, as does one of my best friends. many people think he's ridiculous, but whatever. i like him.

this is Stevie Wright, and i think she's rockin and i can't wait to see her perform. it's gonna be great.

hey, everyone loves Michael Sarver. he's amazing and has an amazing voice, and people like him make me happy.
well, that's my views on some great people that will be on season 8. i really do like them all (kind of) and hope they do well. i would be done with this post now.....
you know there's one more.


yes. ......her. Tatiana Del Toro. she can sing decent. enough for karaoke, but.....OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!! I  thought people had a limit of annoying-ness and stupidity until now, and she crushed and mutilated all of my barriers. AUGH!!!!! i cannot stand one more episode of this chick. she'd better go as soon as america gets to vote, or i will be kicking america's ass.

well, i'm seriously done this time. this has been a long post, so i really don't feel like chatting with you guys at the moment. see ya!!!

25 Friends Everyone Will Eventually Have [Jan. 31st, 2009|02:25 pm]

[Current Music |A Thousand Miles--Vanessa Carlton]

hey guys. well, i was reading an old magazine the other day and it had a section: 12 friends every woman deserves. i thought it was cool, and decided to make my own different list. i think it's pretty cool. it's not quite how i want it, and suggestions are welcome, so here it is:::

The friend who is obsessed with clothes and makeup and celebrities, but you love her for it anyway. (she also always comes over and does your makeup and hair before a big event.)

The friend who is the athlete. they play sports and run and take classes and kick your butt at everything.

The friend who is kind of weird and always provides those awkward moments when talking in a group. Usually the rest of your friends don't quite get him/her, but you do and that's all that matters.

The friend who you end up falling in love with. It may or may not go anywhere, but it happens.

The friend who knows every inside joke and you can talk to him/her for at least 5 minutes and have a conversation that no one else understands.

The friend who is just like you. You have similar personalities, views and senses of humor. they're the person that, when you state your totally weird like/dislike or opinion, yells across the room: "oh my god, me TOO!!!"

The friend who is quiet and nice, that you hang out with kind of as a back-up (don't get me wrong, you still like them). but they're always there and always loyal.

The friend who you spend most of your time with. they don't have to be your best friend, but you guys are always seen together and always laughing.

The friend who knows every backstory and every thing that happened before, and never needs any explanations. your conversations with them tend to be shorter with more noises. ('AH!' *gasp* 'NO!' 'OH!')

The friend who is kind of, well, darker. they're somber and quiet. they're great people, just borderline emo/goth/punk/weird.

The friend who you all make fun of, but in good spirit. (like Elaine on Seinfeld!)

The friend who is super smart. they're funny and nice too, and they're ok to hang out with, but they really shine when you want a random fact or need help with homework.

The friend who is your super confidant. you tell them everything, and they always listen and understand. and they never tell anyone else.

The friend that has you as their super confidant. they tell you everything, etc. don't ever spill their secrets. (also can be the same person as previous)

The friend that brightens up your day, every day. they always smile and have a joke or story for you. you forget all of your problems and bask in their optimism.

The friend that you/ you and all of your friends take care of. they're a great person, but horrible stuff just keeps on happening to them, and they need comfort.

The friend who has a sarcastic mean streak. he/she always comes out with a comment that makes you look at them with shock.

The friend who is almost part of your family. usually their your neighbor, but not always. they're always over at your house and knows your parents. they play games with your siblings and help your dad do stuff. they make cookies with your mom and sometimes you walk in to fnd them eating a sandwich on your couch.

The friend who is obsessed with something, whether it be music, the environment, writing poetry, or whatever.

The friend you have known for years. you go waaay back.

The friend who is incredibly awesome. they seem really cool and smooth, and know all of the cool stuff. once you get to know them, you realize they're just as much of a geek as you.

The friend who always has these looks on their face. in school, they're always rolling thier eyes or freaking out about some other stupid kid. at work or whatever, they're usually making rude gestures at people behind their backs.

The friend who knows tons of people and is always introducing you to somebody. (AKA: the popular friend)

The friend who is the comedian. you can't miss 'em.

Optional: The friend who is your best friend in the whole world. some people (like me) never really have a constant best friend. they have a group of great friends that all work together to be your ever-changing 'best friend'

well, that's it. if i come up with a good idea or decide to edit it, i'll post it here. oh, by the way, the order isn't important. just in case anyone was wondering.

You Are Dublin Mudslide Ice Cream

You won't remember any of this in the morning

You are most like this playful muse of comedy.

Life is all about laughter to you, and you're a natural comic.

You make people laugh until their sides split.

[Current Location |Umm...Africa. NO! My House. Where Else Would I Be?]
[Current Mood |lazylazy]
[Current Music |See Above^^^^^]

haha, you know, i feel random and a little bored right now (and all of today) and I was looking at all of my CD's yesterday, so I decided to show all of the CD's i have here. well, here we go:::

AHHHH!!! great band. this whole CD is good. I got it last year after their video for "Misery Business" came out. I wanna get their earlier album and if they have a new one, then that one too

Kelly Clarkson--Breakaway
This one is pretty good. I got it in 6th grade (three years ago) and it just doesn't appeal to me as much now that I've figured out what kind of music that I really like. but it's still ok.

Live--Throwing Copper
ummm...i was looking at this one and i really don't know why i have it. i've only listened to two songs on it ("I Alone" "All Over You") and they're good. I'll listen to the rest and check back with you guys.

Snow Patrol--Eyes Open
I love snow patrol and everything, so i like this CD a lot. but there aren't a lot of REALLY good songs on this one. it's good though, don't get me wrong.

Train--Drops of Jupiter
haha, this one was a random Christmas present. I told my aunt that I like the song "Drops Of Jupiter" and I do, so she saw this on sale and thought, why not?, i haven't really listened to this one either. so...

Paolo Nutini--These Streets
this one is ok. i loved his single "Last Request" so i thought the cd was gonna be good. some songs were, but it would have been better to just dowload that one and not the cd.

Fall Out Boy--Folie a Deux
AHHH!!! I LOVE Fall Out Boy. they are amazing and so much more so in this cd. it's great. 13 songs and just one that i'm disagreeable to. but it's wonderful. my fave-- "The (Shipped) Gold Standard"

The Fray--How To Save A Life
The Fray are good as always. it's a good CD for any time, anywhere. I like "Look After You"

Boys Like Girls--Boys Like Girls
AHHHHHH!!!! I LOVE Boys Like Girls. they are amazing. haha, even as I'm writing this post now, i'm listening to them on my iPod. they are just the best EVER. i love all of their songs, but especially, "Heels Over Head"

Fall Out Boy--Infinity On High
Haha, like i said, i love FOB. this cd is great too. it has some really awesome songs on it. both me and my brother bonded the summer before last over this CD. hilarity ensues...

Taylor Swift--Fearless
OOOHH!! I really love Taylor Swift. she's great. my friend haley and I have a theory that every teenage girl has a TY theme song. and we've not failed yet. she's just so real and heartfelt. and her 2nd CD is better than the first one. so it's WAY great.

this CD is good. i like her previous one more, but if you've got P!nk, then you've got a good song, hands down. she is very amazing. this CD doesn't appeal to me as much because it's less poppy and bubbly like her last one was. this one deals with her divorce mostly.

Maroon 5--Songs About Jane
I LOOOOVE Maroon 5 too. they are so rockin. this CD is pretty great. there's like two songs i'm not parshal to, but everything else is great. my fave-- 'Must Get Out"

We The Kings--We The Kings
ok. hands down, this one's for the books, We The Kings Is My Favorite Band. EVER. they are the greatest thing ever. this cd doesn't have one bad or even ok song on it. they are all awesome. i love this and if i had to pick just one to recommend, it would be this one. they're just amazing. oh, and i discovered them last summer, before they had their two singles, so don't think this is new. really. AMAZING!!!

Matchbox Twenty--Exile On Mainstream
Not a lot of people my age like them. but they don't know what they're missing. matchbox Twenty is an amazing band that has been around since the 90's, and they're still going strong. I love them, and every single song. this greatest hits cd is so amazing, my head almost exploded. almost.

Foo Fighters--The Colour And The Shape
haha, this isn't my cd! it's my brothers. I'm not really much of a foo fighters gal. haha, but it was in my room for some reason, so whatever...

JoJo--The High Road
this CD's good. it's a little blah here and there, but i got when i was 12. and it works for every 12-year-old, you know. i have a cousin that loves this cd. point proven.

P!nk--I'm Not Dead
yeah, i do love P!nk. she's great, really. i personally think this CD's better than her new one, but they're both so great.

Natasha Bedingfield--Unwritten
this CD's a little old too, but it's still good. very, very poppy though. and again, i got it when i was 11 or 12. so it was a godsend then.

well, that's my CD collection. haha. just MY CD's. whenever one of my friends gets a CD that i've been wanting, i always borrow it and put it on my iPod. and I've got a lot of friends. maybe another day i'll list my favorite songs or CD's i want. but i'm tired now, so i'll see you guys later.

haha, my friend found this ad on craigslist.com and sent it to me because of my love of penguins. here it is:


FOUND: Special-Needs Penguin

Tuxedo-colored Penguin found in the middle of Bell Grimes Lane. Gender unknown. Missing one wing/fin/flipper thingy. Does not fly, swims in circles. Not particularly outgoing, but cuddly and housebroken. Knows commands "sit" and "stay." I cannot keep; my cat wants to beat the stuffing out of it and complex does not allow large dogs, farm animals or exotic pets. Please contact me if it belongs with you, if you know who it belongs with, or if you would like to add this quiet, low-maintenance critter to your household.



haha, so cute and funny. i love the "swims in circles" part.

Poetry--- "An Ode To A Polka-Dot Pillow" [Jan. 6th, 2009|02:56 pm]

[Current Music |Don't You Know You're Beautiful--Kellie Pickler]

haha. i think this poem is pretty good. it was a kind of spur of the moment one, but most are with me. here it is---

An Ode To A Polka-Dot Pillow
Polka-dots on this pillow,
I stare at them as I write.
Many colors and soft terry
cradle my head at night.
I'm thinking about what it has seen,
in three years of adolescence
and the loss of its sheen.
Broken friendships
and new dogs,
a whole new house
and hormone bogs.
Nights of tears
and nights of smiles;
this pillow's history could go for miles.
Taken to sleepovers
and on long highway rides,
this pillow has seen
its fair share of nights.
Three years is a long time.
So many things to see.
But so much more
when you're stuck in your teens.

well, i hope you guys like it. it's longer than others that i've written, but i like it. well, see ya!
