stranded with good tunes.

Today’s topic of the day, sparked my interest for sure. “If stranded on a desert island, and could only bring one music album with you, which would it be? What is it about this music that never gets old for you?” I couldn’t just pick one specific album, from one artist/band, I decided instead to make a mix cd of the music that would get me through being stranded alone in the heat.

My Stranded on the desert island mix cd:

  

1. Ramblin Man- The Allman Brothers Band

2.Fuel- Ani Difranco

3. Something to believe in- Aqualung

4.Our swords- Band of Horses

5. Help!- The Beetles

6. Vienna- Billy Joel

7. Mr. Tambourine Man- Bob Dylan

8. Skinny Love- Bon Iver

9. Osaka Loop Line- Discovery

10. Seaside- The Kooks

11. The Prayer- Kid Cudi

12. Until We Bleed- Kleerup

13. Aint too proud to beg- The Temptations

14. Coney Island- Good Old War

15. Fast Car- Tracey Chapman

16. Uncle John’s Band- Grateful Dead

17. Mykonos- Fleet Foxes

18. Piece of me- Briteny Spears

19. Rock God- Selena Gomez

20. Firework- Katy Perry

  

This music never gets old to me because every one of these songs has some sort of meaning to me. Some of them have amazing lyrics, and some have a good beat. I just know if I was stranded anywhere, I’d be pretty golden with this mix of music.

Insomniac

I don’t sleep, I can’t sleep, I love sleep, I hate sleep.

 

 

I’m so frustrated that I can’t get to sleep at night. I don’t go to bed these days until 7ish, and i don’t fully understand why. It’s weird because I love to sleep, and once i am actually asleep, I get into such a cozy deep slumber. I just have such issues actually getting to sleep. My mind goes into over-drive once I have layed down for bed, and not even a good wholesome movie will help knock me out. I won’t take Benadryl, or any other sleeping medication, because they give me the most messed up, out there dreams. I would rather not sleep, than take a sleeping med. I don’t even do anything, i don’t go out or do anything significant that should be keeping me up all hours of the night. I swear I am a vampire, the only time i start to get tired, is when the sun is rising. I wouldn’t be complaining if i was actually a vampire, because then i would at least have some special skills. But since i am not an actual vamp, sleeping when the sun comes up, is a real lousy habit. Hopefully I will conduct a brilliant plan to get my body on at least a semi-decent sleeping schedule! Till then,  expect the most random, insomnia induced blogging for a while!

Earlier I watched the film “Welcome To The Riley’s.” Maybe it’s because I’m a Kristen Stewart fan, or maybe it’s because i appreciate a good film, but this movie was awesome. Now, it’s a little vulgare at times, and definitely not a comedy by any means, but it’s a beautifully written/directed movie. I really love Kristen Stewart’s role in this, and how she portrayed her character, it’s very convincing. I would definitely recommend this movie, if you like more independent, character pieces.

Is anyone out there?

I feel like I am completely uninteresting, and have nothing to say. I really feel like no one is reading my blogs, but myself. I’m trying desperately to come up with better ideas and clever things to say, but i feel like I am trying too hard. Today’s bog I am going to just talk, something i do well and not over think this blog. Wish me luck!

It’s monday, and I swear I was going to be productive, but the weather here isn’t permitting it. So instead today will be filled with me watching movies and downloading more music. I’m not really your average young woman in her 20’s, I don’t go out, I don’t party, and I’m not desperate to find love. I guess those things just really don’t do anything for me, I would rather stay home and watch wheel of fortune and Jeopardy with my sister and sister-in law. But this weekend I made a minor exception because my little sister Kay turned 18 and it was her first club experience. I had to go out to the clubs and watch out for Kay, plus i hadn’t been out “clubbing” in months and just wanted to dance off some stress. Now, clubs where I live here in Tampa (AKA TRAMPA)FL are not too classy, i mean some can be, but the one i went to isn’t at all. It’s mostly all really trendy people wearing basically nothing in 30 degree weather, and trying to hook up with anyone who will give them the time of day. This isn’t my type of place at all, I can’t handle men who disrespect women and can’t handle AT ALL women who disrespect themselves. Dancing up on every single guy that looks at you in the club appears desperate, not sexy. Urgh my generation is dooming this world, I swear.

Well today is uneventful, I’m going to be gluing myself to the television and I will be for sure blogging about one of my celeb favorite/doppelgänger Kristen Stewart. My sister and I are going to watch “Welcome To The Riley’s” and I’m highly anticipating this movie, so expect a full review tomorrow, along with my opinions on the Golden Globe’s that aired last night.

theres an APP for that

iPhones are taking over the world, one bad application at a time.

1. The ‘Grandma’ App- This application solely calls your grandma for you. there’s also one for grandpa, mom, dad, and my girl. My question is this:why do you need an app for that? don’t you already program your gma and gpa in your phone as that already?

2.Flashlight App- It lights up white…you can have that exact same effect on your iPhone by simply opening up an application.

3. iLick it iPhone App- what the hell…this application is not only unsanitary, but downright creepy. This app wants you to achieve to size zero as it encourages you to lick the screen whenever it flashes a sumptuous meal. I don’t understand this world anymore.

4.iFart App- makes fart noises. what happened to the good old whoopee cushion?

5.Blower App- makes the effect of blowing out birthday candles. SERIOUSLY? Technology is ruining birthday’s now too? cool.

6. The hold app- You have to press the ‘hold’ button for as long as you can. This app is actually considered a productivity application. I didn’t realize touching a screen for as long as you could count as productive.

7. Fit or Fugly app- this app judges you basically, by a picture of you. what the hell? these apps are blowing my mind.

what happend to encouragement?

 

8. The Moo Box- show’s pictures of animals and the sounds they make. I guess this is an okay app if you’re teaching your youngin’ animals.

9. simstapler app- I died laughing when i saw this application. So basically if you don’t have a stapler ready and handy, you can “practice” with this app. It does the simulations of a real stapler. WHY!? who needs to “practice” using a stapler, makes no sense.

10. Zit Picker 2– Not only is this app disgusting, but its $1.99. If you spend $2.00 on an app that picks invisible zits, you need help. That’s disgusting and flat-out wrong. it’s just wrong.

11. Zips App- This application gives you the chance to make zip and unzipping sounds, without doing the actual motion. I’m not sure why anyone would ever need this application. I wonder if the creators of this application had zipper fetishes? definitely not girlfriend’s, i can tell you that much.

12. The Proposal App- Oh my gosh. So basically this app pops up with “Will You Merry Me” on it. Oh that’s cool, the most important day in a man and womans life (aside from the actual wedding) and there’s an App for that. If you are planning on using this app when popping the big question, DON’T! This is the cheesiest, most impersonal way of ever proposing to someone. I would straight up slap a man if he proposed to me with this iPhone App.

13. My Lighter app- Okay, see, this app would just piss me off. Oh okay, I don’t have a lighter to light my cigarette, but it’s no big deal there’s a picture of a zippo on your iPhone! It’ll get your cig lit in no time!…really?

14.Throw your iPhone app- This application allows you to throw your phone up in the air, and it tells you the speed. This is just an accident waiting to happen.

15. You can ask your iPhone “am i drunk yet?” If you are feeling the urge to ask your phone that, you need to put the drinks down, and re-evalute yourself.

Gettin in the groove

Baby Mercy

 

I’m getting in shape, being more productive, and being healthier. Lately things have been chaotic in my household, and I know I’m not the only one that feels that way. It’s a new year, and i’m going to make this year kick ass, in order to do that, i am getting my shit together and having fun while i do it.

I went on a music rampage and my music library currently consists over 1200 artists. I’m working on more, and would love new music in my life! :) I’ll be making a list of my favorite songs/artists as of this week. haha, I swear my tastes and song obsessions change basically from mood to mood, but i could always use more music. Lately my taste has been more’indie’ genre i guess. I’m not too good with mastering the genre names yet. To give an idea, i lately have been loving the following: Band of Horses, Grateful Dead,Bob Dylan, MGMT, Fleet Foxes, Regina Spector, Discovery, and for some reason, Katy Perry. Please give me more music to listen too, I can never get enough!!

 We have 3 dogs in our house hold and 2 cats. The cats usually sleep out in the living room or with me. The 3 dogs sleep in my sister’s room, two sleep in kennels and one sleeps on the couch in their room or floor. I decided to take the youngest of the three dogs (Mercy) and have her kennel in my room and sleep with me at night. She cries alot because she hates the kennel, so i figured if she sleeps in bed with me at night not only will i not be lonely, but I feel like it will be easier for me to train her. With all the animals and comotion that go on in our not so big household, it’s hard to train her anything. She’s about a year and a half old and we found her a few months ago. We think she’s a grey hound/ pitbull mix, and she’s soooo cute, but she is devious, and stubborn. I hope me having more one on one time will help train her, and also help calm her. Seeing as she’s a puppy still, she’s pretty hyper, not fixed, and she’s a pretty tall dog.

I have nothing

pee in your pants

Today’s topic is “share a story about a memorable job interview.” Luckily, I have a funny story.

Back in high school I had a friend Lacey. She was one of the more “popular” girls, she was really sweet, but not very smart, and she partied ALOT. One day after school, I went home with her to hangout. She informed me that she had an interview for a job that afternoon, but they were going to pee drug test her. So Lacey came up with a “brilliant” plan to pass her drug test. I’m not gonna lie, the plan wasn’t that bad, just ridiculous and silly. Lacey had someone actually willing to give her pee that would pass a drug test, in a plastic bag. Lacey took the pee bag, wrapped it around her leg, with one of the Therma Care heating pads, in order to keep the pee at the correct temperature (yes they test the temperature, weird). She was already to go, so I drove to the interview, and waited in the lobby for her to come out. About 30 minutes had gone by when lacey FINALLY came out of the bathroom. She had a troubled look on her face, and I couldn’t figure it out untill i glanced down at her pants..the whole front of her pants and her behind were soaking wet! Like drenched, it straight up look like she pee’d herself. Lacey, being the fearless girl she was, had no shame in her stride and left the place confident and completely wet. Apparently, after lacey had used the pee in the bag for the drug test, instead of throwing the plastic bag away, she tied it back to her leg! It exploded when she walked out of the bathroom, and everyone working at this building was looking at Lacey like she was un-potty trained. Needless to say, Lacey did NOT get that job, but I got one of the best laughs I have ever had.
