The first time I seen this “Halloween Light Show” was last week. I’m not taking up close and personal because I think that would be enough to either kill me or scare the living hell out of me. One of those would do the trick. My friend Mandy send me the “Party Rock Anthem” video and I thought it was cool, but I hate that song so much. So today is actually Halloween, and my friend Stephanie who lives in Germany, I think, posted this video on her Facebook and I just got done watching it. It’s so cute, and very cool how they got all the lights to do that, but you know they’re electric bill is way up there during the whole month of October. I wonder what they do for the month of December? Especially since that’s like the mother month of light specials.
I saw this picture and I instantly loved it from the start. To me, a picture like this represents Christmas, even it’s Halloween day and we still have a whole month until Thanksgiving, but for some reason everybody just goes ahead and skips over Thanksgiving anyways. I’m even thinking about doing that myself since it’s definitely going to feel like Thanksgiving this year. Oh well though, but this isn’t about holidays and whatnot. It’s about music.
I’ve always been a piano lover. My grandparents on my mom’s side know how to play piano. My nana knows how to read music and my papaw plays by ear. Weird thing is my sister knows how to read music and would rather play it by ear instead. She actually learns it faster that way. I’ve never understood how to read music. My cousin Kristi knows how to read music as well. The both of them took band in middle school, but Kristi’s the only one to do it in high school. I’ve tried three times and failed miserablely. Apparently I can’t get it after that third try. It was part of the reason why I quit college too, because I had Music Theory. It’s a lot harder than it looks unfortunately.
There are two things I will never get use to and they are the wondering eyes of teenagers and adults. The second is judging others on looks and not giving them a chance to change your mind about them. These are the things that bug me always, because a lot of people just don’t let go. I put up a pair of shoes and titled this “Mile In These Shoes” because I thought it fit the whole post.
Whenever I go places I get a lot of wondering eyes. Sometimes I feel like a celebrity just not without a lot of security and I’m not known for anything but one thing. It was forever ago. I haven’t gotten stopped for it since 2003. Anyways, I get these eyes everywhere I go and when it’s kids or elder people I don’t usually have a fit about it. When it’s kids ages 10 and up and adults just staring at me bugs the crap out of me. I cannot stand it. It’s like they don’t have any manners at all whenever they do that.
I am all about not judging a book by its cover, however I do it all the time on books. People are another subject. I’m very into meeting new people. I don’t care about what you look like or what you do. I’m going to be a better person than certain people on this Earth do on an average day. I’m not like other people who will just look at you and wonder. If I get curious enough I will either give you a smile or talk to you. Seems like nobody wants to smile to people anymore. They really should too.
You shouldn’t judge a person before you know their life story. Until you walk in their shoes then you can decide if you really want to judge them. In 10 times out of 10 you won’t be judging them again. If you judge me on who I am, God help the both of us. I’ve been told that I have a bit of a temper sometimes. I have no control what comes out of my mouth when I’m pissed off. I’m only in control of it when I’m around my parents, but that’s normal. So I definitely wouldn’t try it. All you have to do is give me a chance to change your mind.
So we are celebrating my birthday this weekend since my mom has to work on Tuesday, which is the real day of my birthday. So we went to Noble Romans. It’s our number one favorite place to go. Don’t ask my sister what her favorite place to go, because she was disagree. Anyways, we went there first and it wasn’t too crazy like we usually make it. Besides all the flies and baby right by us it wasn’t bad… Until my sister burped.
Then on our ride to the movie theaters, my sister was trying to figure out what she wanted to see because she really didn’t want to see Footloose. My mom and I watched Julianne come back to Dancing With The Stars to promote it. We loved it, and my mom still watches it since she taped it. Emily ulimately came with us. Before the movie actually started her friends came to see it too, so she shut up after that.
I love dance movies, but they always make me sad. For the fact that every dancing movie has made me cry and for I can’t dance like everybody else and it bothers me to the core. I’ve watched Kenny dance before in Center Stage: Turn It Up. I loved him in it! Julianne is just lovely when she dances! Now there’s one person I just loved to pieces but I wasn’t the only one who liked him. My mom liked him too. Willard, real name is Miles Teller. He was awesomely hilarious! When he danced and talked just cracked me up! Loved him!
This whole was good. My mom even saw the first one and thought this was good. From the time the song “Footloose” actually started I was shaking my hips. My mom and I like to talk during the movies and we were somewhat singing the song too. Don’t worry we weren’t loud. I just wish there more dancing though, that’s my only complaint.
I am a kid at heart. I can’t be stopped and I shouldn’t. I’m the stupid one who didn’t want to believe everybody when they said, “you’ll regret saying that.” Man, we’re they right. Even though my birthday is soon I’d like to watch The Wizard of Oz this weekend, I could consider this a Halloween movie. It’s spooky, it’s got costumes, the songs sound like Halloween. I might be losing it too so don’t be surprised with that.
I’m listening to the soundtrack right now on Spotify. I am literally dancing on my bed while typing this. I can’t get enough of it. I love the songs and I love singing them as well. My sister Emily hates when my mom and I watch this movie because we have a problem with quoting and singing everything. We’re obsessed! In a good way though. Can you guess what my second favorite childhood movie is?
So yesterday was Thursday and it was suppose to be just full of The Vampire Diaries and Great Pumkin Charlie Brown, yeah well while I was on my Facebook that morning I discovered my favorite person in the world was going to be on The Ellen Show. My insides were screaming, and I got too excited for my own being. Justin is just amazing! I’ve had celebrities and musicians put a smile on my face before but he had another hold on me that I can’t seem to fight off. It might be because he has a charity for Shriner’s Hospitals. Which is where I went and had my surgeries done. Well, one surgery the others I had at Children’s Hospital in St. Louis. Anyways, it might be that.
I was excited to see that he was going to be on there. One problem, I think her time slot got pushed back an hour because of Dr. Phil. Usually it’s on at 4pm but ever since they put Dr. Phil on that channel she is pushed back to 5pm. Anybody want to guess what show starts at that time too? My favorite show, besides The Vampire Diaries and a few others. Mad About You. They came on the same time! I was willing to give up the first half hour of The Vampire Diaries for Charlie Brown, but I didn’t want to give up Mad About You too.
Justin Timberlake was her only guest besides Coldplay, and luckily I’m not that big of a fan of them so after they played their game I switched it over to Mad About You. By this time it is 10 minutes into the second episode. Sad part was I actually knew both episodes. The one time I actually remember two of the episodes of the day I can’t watch them. I was somewhat pissed, but seeing Justin Timberlake on my TV made me all happy inside. So I forgot about it.
I was wondering what my name meant. I already knew the origin and meaning of it from the time I was born. It means “Pearl” which ironically is my great-grandmother on my Papaw’s side. Her name was Pearle, apparently the unique names run in the family. My nana’s real name was Ruth. When she got adopted her parents named her Dona. She said she’s always had problems with people either spelling it wrong or proannouncing it wrong. It’s the same as “Donna” just if you’re wondering. My mom’s middle name is Leah. It’s different and use to be hard to find anywhere. My cousin and I were both born with unique spellings. Her name is Kristi, I always had trouble spelling it right. So far, the great-grandkids all have right spellings.
I got a little sidetracked. Oh well. My name apparently means a lot of things. That’s only looking on Urban Dictionary and I got a good laugh on what people think my name really means. Which is good, and yet bad depending on how each “Meghan” are in their lives. Here are a few funny sumits I found on the site.
“Meghan is the name for a skanky slutty ho born to backwoods retard parents who cannot spell correctly.”
“The most amazingly beautiful person to ever set foot on the planet. Commonly a girl with a heart bigger than the Earth itself, yet likes to deny it, some one who is musically talented in more ways than one, they can sing, dance, perform and compose. A Meghan is hard to understand, usually they are considered to be a purple beast when it comes to having a great time in life. Meghan’s are easy to fall head over heels in love with and so hard to forget, you want to be with a Meghan no matter what once you meet one. Knowing a Meghan personally I can deeply express the love and devotion I feel for mine, I wanna stand by her side forever and nothing will stop me. A Meghan, in simpler words, is perfection in the eyes of every person imaginable.”
“A crazy beautiful girl who is down to earth and will always be there for her best friends. The girl that every guy wants to be with and every girl wants to be.”
I had to post the first one. It was just too funny not to, and I kept the “r” word because I didn’t think you’d get it without it. That’s the only time you’ll see the word, it’s in a quote. The other two some of my family members could probably agree with, but I didn’t think they were me to a T. So I went with this last one and I love it.
“Usually quiet, but very gorgeous and loves to make new friends. Not the slutty kind. Hates backstabbers. Very intelligent and loves to learn new things. Meghan is the most awesome person you could meet on earth. She’s one of a kind.”
