hearing "president elect barack obama" won't get old until i start hearing "president barack obama".
02:47pm 30/06/2008
  i had a huge gripe to post about and a huge self loathing monologue to post as well, because i'm "probably a bad person" for random reasons. but i forgot all of that. an old friend of mine was in a serious car accident this weekend and is fighting for his life and they need people to donate blood in his name.

i really wish i could donate, but stupid stupid sickle cell anemia. why do i have to have that? i'm supposed to go to the fair tonight but i really don't want to now. i mean, thats silly right? i haven't talked to him much in the past couple of months but when i heard about it i gasped audibly and i was really sad. it was the same feeling i got when i was notified that the jk tour bus had flipped over.

i'm making joe donate, and we'll see if i feel like going to the fair after that.

my heart goes out to mike and his family. if anyone can/wants to donate blood in his name, you can go to your local red cross and donate for michael marion @ mission hospital in mission viejo california.
oh my shit

10 reasons celebrities shouldn't have kids

You know the saying: “You need a SAG card to make a movie, but you don’t need a license to have a kid.” With the spate of bad celebrity-parenting news, who's looking out for the children? Either you’re a celebrity, or you’re a parent. Here are 10 reasons why you can't have it all.

1. Innate inability to distinguish between healthy parent-child communication and “Glengarry Glen Ross.” The verbal abuse received by most kids isn’t nearly as eloquent as that now infamous (and well-annunciated) rant Alec Baldwin deposited on his 11-year-old (or 12-year-old, he doesn't seem sure) daughter’s voice mail. Then again, most dads aren’t mad-talented actors with booming Shakespearean chops. Nor are most moms bat crazy enough to leak such a voice mail to TMZ.com for everyone, including their daughter’s classmates, to hear — as Baldwin claims was done by mom Kim Basinger (and she denies). But hey, who wants to hear the emotional meltdowns of non-famous parents anyway? To paraphrase David Mamet, famous parents are for closers.

2. Amicable divorces even creepier than those that go DEFCON 1. Yes, yes, a decade-plus of well-publicized avarice among Baldwin and Basinger is shameful, ugly and undoubtedly damaging to their only child. When reading one famous divorce file, the mind shudders to imagine the dramatic throw-downs witnessed by the children of Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards. But battling parents is something we can all understand. Heck, they even make reality TV shows about it — “Nanny 911,” “Dr. Phil,” “Divorce Court.”   But what exactly is up with the Willis-Kutcher-Moores? When Bruce and Demi hit the town with Rumer, Scout and Tallulah, along with Uncle Ashton, it looks like the former marrieds had an older son we never heard about. It’s even worse when Bruce brings a date – providing the illusion that B & D hired a really hot nanny. Which brings us to Reason 3. . . .

3. Inability to choose appropriate stepparents. Uncle Ashton indeed! So here you are, young Rumer, Scout or Tallulah, on the verge of pubescence, experiencing your first crushes on the smooth-skinned boys of Tiger Beat magazine … and your mom brings home the cover boy! Not only that, she’s letting him take you out solo to various Hollywood shindigs. You know, as if on a date! No one’s implying any impropriety on Uncle Ashton’s part. Hey, he’s hardly Woody Allen. But it’s got to be weird for the girls. And for those steeped in Hollywood lore, it’s vaguely reminiscent of the whole Lana Turner scandal.

4. Insistence on wrecking soccer games for everyone. Who’s going to pay attention to little Isabelle or Connor Kidman-Cruise kicking a goal, when you can gawk at the paparazzi gawking at Tom Cruise and his pregnant fiancee Katie Holmes? Or gawk at Tom Cruise and wife Katie as they make out at Connor’s basketball game. (Hey! They must really be in love!) Or Tom and Katie, with new biological baby Suri in tow, looking like they hate each other at yet another game in which one of Tom’s adopted kids from his previous marriage to Nicole Kidman is playing? Who cares about sportsmanship, when look, Katie’s back to her pre-baby weight!

5. Don’t allow biological children nearly as much press as those Third World kids Mommy and Daddy keep adopting. It’s bad enough when rich-and-famous moms, dads or both force real-world values by making their kids do chores and throwing away toys left out of the toy box – just ask Madonna’s Lourdes and Rocco. Once the parental units start outsourcing kids from other countries, the less exotic children are lucky if the school photographer takes their picture. Check out Lourdes trying to jam into the picture with mom Madonna and new brother David on a recent visit to his home country, Malawi. Yeah, we were interested in Brangelina offspring Shiloh for like, a minute. But how soon we forget once Angelina Jolie starts talking about getting another kid from Chad.

6. Can’t find child-size Louis Vuitton dog carriers. Teacup Chihuahua breeders would do well to take note of People magazine’s popular “baby bump” issues, and cut back on their spring litters. More than ever before, the hot celebrity accessory this season is the child — domestic or imported. It’s only a matter of time before even Paris Hilton hops on this trend, ordering blond-hair extensions for her mini mirror image. Here’s hoping Paris Jr. isn’t as easily misplaced as Tinkerbell, the little dog once thought stolen, only to be found wondering lost in the Hilton estate.

7. Safety schmafety! Though it seems obvious to us regular folk, you don’t dangle babies from balconies (Michael Jackson) or in front of large aggressive reptiles (the late Steve Irwin). And while it’s easy to find fault with Britney installing a baby seat incorrectly, hey, at least she was using one! Same goes for letting the baby drive while she sits on your lap. It looks dangerous to us, but you never know when teaching a baby to drive might come in handy. What if Britney’s too drunk to drive herself? How irresponsible is letting the baby drive then? Huh?

8. The whole naming thing. This point is obvious and overplayed. Yet celebrities still don’t get it. Nobody’s getting a Golden Globe for the most messed-up moniker guaranteed to get your kid beat up for life. So stop with the Apple, Audio Science, Phinneus, Hazel, Pilot Inspektor, Kal-El, Shiloh Nouvel, Suri, Scout, Rumer, Tallulah, Lourdes, Rocco, Salad Fork, whatever. You know who you are. For all her faults, the late Anna Nicole Smith at least had the good sense to name her kids something normal — even if she could only think of one name for both kids.

9. Even more reality shows. If celebrities aren’t willing to put children first, at least they should consider their fans. Screwed-up celebrity children invariably spawn more celebrity children reality shows. From “The Osbournes” and “The Simple Life,” to the new A&E series “Sons of Hollywood,” starring Aaron Spelling’s son, Randy, and Rod Stewart’s kid, Sean, how soon until every network is jammed with the exploits of these overprivileged brats?

10. No wire hangers. Ever. We don’t want to read their tell-all memoirs either.



I couldn't have said it any better my damn self. Well done Helen!

quote of the moment   
05:43pm 01/05/2006
  For the first twenty years of my life I rocked myself to sleep. It was a harmless enough hobby, but eventually I had to give it up. For the next twenty-two years I lay still and discovered that I could drop off with no problem. Follow seven beers with a couple of scotches and a thumble of good marijuana, and it's funny how sleep just comes on it's own. Often i never even made it to bed. I'd squat down to pet the cat and wake up on the floor eight hours later, having lost a perfectly good excuse to change my clothes. I'm now told that this is not called "going to sleep" but rather "passing out" a phrase that carries a distinct hint of judgement.

  Do you know what happened this week back in 1850, in California?

California became a state.
The State had no electricity.
The State had no money.
Almost everyone spoke Spanish.
There were gun fights in the streets.

So basically, it was just like California today except the women had
real breasts and men didn't hold hands.
last update i swear, we are leaving soon

  what a week so far. forgot my camera at home. no big deal. saw some stuff. did some stuff. drank some stuff. love the bread.

i have stories to tell, but not till i return... cause... i think it'd be better as one big story that you can skip over or not. right? okay then.

but i must tell you that the alcohol flows freely over here. yes it does. i'm out!
yes i'm updating again   
01:35pm 05/06/2005
  okay. friday - i am gonna go into work at 930 and get my paycheck, head over to the bank, and deposit it. then i'll get some food. come home and pack my shit. then i'll either go get my hair cut, or spend a few hours straightening it. i will leave here around 1? and go check into the hotel. btw marianne, i booked it for 2 nights because i have absolutely no plans on getting up early on saturday morning. if you don't want to pay for it, you can get up, pack, shower and be out by 11, but not me... i'll meet you at cp's later then.

then acacia and i will rendezvous, how, when or where? i'm not so sure. but then dinner at the hob. followed by a little passing of the line. then major concerting. followed by drunk navigating to mel's, and then back to the room for sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeep.

so my camera is still amusing me. we should take random pictures throughout LA this weekend. fuck the hob!

i just ate a breakfast burrito from pepe's and yum, but full i am. okay phone time with jill. then a nap. bye.

  sometimes i love going to work. and sometimes there are days like today. not that i didn't want to be at work today, but it was asshole. nobody came in as scheduled. nothing got done. and i feel like shit for not getting things done in my department, but what can you do? but it had it's moments. like the meeting. oh, and i gave johnny my book from yesterday. i am going to get the autograph page back but yeah.

i am going to rent mullholand drive tonight because i have the desire to see it now. i hate when there is a movie that i haven't seen and people talk about it, then i am intrigued. so.... andrew foshee? wow, that kid is a spaz. i hope he made it home okay. he's not the best with directions, or finding things in relation to other things, his geography could use some work. okay, it could use a lot of work. curtis #2?

i'm getting excited because it's almost time for missy higgins. even though aware never got back to me on the free ticket situation, i have a ticket that i paid good money for. i have to whore her merch table because there is no way i am paying $40 for her cd (international shipping)! i love music, but on a budget.

i love free sodas. and drunk dials, except that they are from obnoxious people and i really just want to talk to other people who are there. and the changes coming to the bru (check your newsletters folks). and basketball games (ahahhahahaaaaa). and most of all lottery (but only if it wins, cause then there are 2 dates involved). okay i have to go now and i really really have to concentrate on cleaning my room and gathering all of the clothes i need to pack. oh but first it's time for round one of google the bru crew. tonight.... babygear.

i don't ever want to eat again!

mood: full
i am so full. so. much. food.

today was another great free food day at the BRU. there was sooooooooo much to eat. and what does free food day mean? it means you have every excuse in the world to be in the breakroom at any given moment of the day. also it means you can hang out in the fire exit because the managers are out there 'queing. johnny's meat was mm mm good :). we had cake, and enchilada's, and guac, and chips, and cookies (yum) and so much soda. i basically ate all day long. it was disgusting. now my stomach hurts :(

on the upside, it is the day before easter and nobody was shopping really, so we had time to just hang out all day. and i love being the ds because i can chill if i want to and who do i have to answer to? the managers? no they are out in the back cooking carne asada. so yeah. and then i sent ruth and maria to the breakroom at the same time to go and eat because the meat was fresh off the grill, and ruth acted like it was sin against humanity. i'm like "dude, it's free food day, go eat, relax, hang out in the break room. that's what free food day is about" yeah, she still doesn't get it. whatver, i tried.

tonight is sara! hott. then we were supposed to go to sb, but now i guess we are going to stay in LA, and i dunno. i think i need to just come home and do the ish that i needed to get done. because week after next is gonna be insane and i need to be finished with everything before i leave for tour. bah, i hate when plans change 65489764654632156465 times in the course of 2 days.

yeah, i think i'm gonna go throw up some of this food or something.
i forget

why am i so lazy? it's not because i'm sick, i'm just generally lazy. for instance today.... i am supposed to go and get a new wallet. i am also supposed to go visit an old friend. what have i done? none of that. i had brunch though!

last night i closed. random yes i know. but jessica was there till 8. we were talking about the old days. all the drama that's gone down at the BRU. yeah, crazy. what's even crazier is that i've been working there for 3 years. i kinda miss the old party crew though. THOSE WERE THE DAYS.

tomorrow i have work, and then teitur. and then i get my baby back, and so guess what i'm gonna do on thursday? yep. you know it. i need to get a bathing suit. but still, i am lazy and am not going to leave and go find one.

random side note, my dad is in marina del rey at a conference till friday night. and then my stepmom is in vegas with her sister for an indeterminable amount of time. my brother is taking two weeks for spring break and kickin it at spencer's parents' beach house down in newport, so basically it's me and my sister holdin down the fort. tonight we are getting dinner from a place called grabasta pasta. it's in newport, it's yum. chargin it to spences' credit card.

thinking about life makes my head hurt. i should just not. hmm. okay. done.

oh yeah and nevermind i forgot what i was gonna say.

well, based upon the fact that i'm wearing the standard babies r us uniform that everyone else has on and this handy little name tag that has the babies r us logo on, i'd say yes. however, based upon the fact that i'm holding my purse, my sunglasses are on, i'm talking on my cell phone and eating, i'm gonna go with "i worked here about 6 minutes ago, but i'm not on the clock right now, if you know what i mean."

don't be a cocksucker. and furthermore, when i refuse to get off of my cell phone on my personal time to go and find out how much that peice of shit toy you have in your hand costs when you could very well just walk half a foot to the cashier and ask them, don't get mad. don't be a cocksucker.

what kind of question is "do you work here?" anyways? were you really doubting my employment status here? are you blind? did you really think that i had a wardrobe malfunction and had to borrow a get up from this store while i was shopping? or maybe you thought i was impersonating an employee? i know, you thought i was volunteering here? don't be a cocksucker.

why am i staring at you like that? because you'd stare at me too if i asked you "are you shopping here?" don't be a cocksucker. next time somebody asks me this shit i'm gonna say "en francais s'il vous plait".

okay so anyone who knows me knows that i'm actually a little bit afraid of them. but today i dunno if it's just the drunkeness of st patties that's in the air, or what, but like 5 different guys decided that they needed to stop and talk to me. (btw when i said love in the title, i didn't mean literally). it could have something to do with the car i was driving too. but yeah. um thanks for the compliments?

it's really funny to look at your friends page and see nothing but that stupid irish name generator. i'm not knockin it, i think i started it, but yeah, it's very distracting.

the oc is tonight and that shit better be good. or else i may consider quitting.

also april is sexual harrasment awareness month. yes!

last night was good stuff. a little show, a little dinner, a little meeting, a little industry schmoozing, and a little kindapping.

if you haven't already i suggest that you befriend stephen kellogg's cd. and hope and pray with me that he comes back to the west coast soon. now!

in other news. i have decided that school is not for me. and therefore i am done. where did this come from? well......

here's a little story about smjpromotions. one day we were tlking about what we wanted to do in life. and since ... didn't quite pan out, we decided to switch to my part of the ruling the universe dream. which was promotions and public relations. so then their is our friend curtis. who needs the help in a bad way. okay, maybe not in a bad way, but just in a way. so basically now, smjpromotions is going to run his rep program. enter me not having enough time to go to school, and work two jobs.

i don't feel like hearing any crap about how much i'm not getting paid to work for curtis. because there are a few things you have to understand, and i'll explain those to you personally if you really need me to.

btw, i got to LA in an impressive amount of time last night. and i needed a mel's grilled cheese fix like no other. apparently so did curtis. can we talk for just a moment about how they serve that tap water nonesense. why? that is so gross. and curtis... take a shower! okay i'm done.

edited to say: i have a classic black womans attitude!

You Are Somewhat Honest

You do tend to tell the truth a lot

But you also stretch the truth on occasion

You figure a little lie isn't a big deal

  okay does anybody know if it's okay to uninstall internet explorer? or if it's even possible? it's driving me fucking insane. i have pop up blockers, yet IE pop ups will not be blocked (did i mention that i'm not even using fucking IE? oh, cause i'm not). i want it gone.

also - how do you get rid of weatherbug? i tried uninstalling it, but that didn't work, because there is no directory or some shit like that. basically it told me that there is nothing to delete so it can't, but the program is still there.

and i say nerds in a loving way :)

much better these days   
11:11am 08/03/2005
  i am better now. purple haze for life.

yesterday amy picked me and jennifer up for lunch and we went to el pollo loco. aaron and blake went too. blake helped himself to my french fries, then used my shirt as a napkin. nice!

i decided against going to school today mainly because i am tired beyond belief. i just didn't see myself functioning if i went. so i am here, and we are getting the other peice of our couch. apparently when they delivered it the first time, they brought all of the peices in cream, except the center peice they thought would look nice if it was black. um, no.

we just got one of those phone calls where the machine calls, and it's like "all of our representatives are busy right now, please stay on the line and someone will be with you shortly. your call is important to us" ummmmm, obviously it's not or someone would actually call us. so yeah, i hung up. do they really think that i'm going to sit around on the phone waiting for someone to come to the line to tell me that my credit card payment is passed due? i know it's passed due you idiot, i get the bill in the mail. what the fuck?

i'm hungry right now. but i don't really want to get up and go anywhere, although i could stroll around the mall. and i need to go to borders. hmm, but a bagel at bagel me sounds so enticing. ooh, and a smoothie. who wants to come with me?

so, OTH tour comes through tomorrow. i want to go. but i never bought a ticket, i wonder if they are still available. i just really want to see tyler full band, and i figure if i am sitting at the top somewhere (ruling the world) i could still see gavin, but not have to have the gavin experience. but yeah, i dunno, we'll see.

looks like the start of something good is coming our way. i can't really go into much detail right now, but it's comin and when it does, you'll all know about it.

oh yeah and "i just called to see if you wanted anything" eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! i win.

today for just a breif moment, i'd say about 15 minutes, i felt like my life sucked. i don't even know why, or what triggered it. i was just standing around work, thinking about how my LEG FUCKIN KILLED (because it did) and and how i was going to come home tonight and have to clean the bathroom, and then i would have to get up in the morning and go back to the BRU. it's not that i mind going there either. but also i have nobody to talk me to sleep. yeah, i know that is by choice, but it kinda sucks. whatever, maybe i just need to get used to it still.

the carpenters came tonight to install the new carpet at work, and i never want to see ass crack again. and the lady who is their supervisor can suck it. she is annoying, ugly, and an oompa loompa.

my art project was pretty. and purple haze was a united front today. other things that were of noteable reason, but not worth explaining

~dud where's my belt?
~get in line
~boston baked beans!
~comin outta my butthole
~i had to move it from my door to my closet
~let's rub each others feet.
~this is gia, she is hott, the end.

i need a day off from both school and work. yeah saturday i have that, but i will be busy, and chances are we are going to wake up relatively early, and my foot will more than likely be gross looking, and i will have to go to ikea. not that ikea is a chore, but i will have to be alert, and on the look out for good things.

i made yet another new friend. gia. she's a model. actually she's pretty damned hott. i think i'm done.
