And so it begins, they are awakened by the bright sun shining through the drapes, The time on the clock was six o’clock, it rang three separate times. Fresh brewed coffee drips through the filter, down into the dispenser, waiting for somebody to pour it into their mug. Sugar coated cereal and milk spills into four small bowls, each one with a spoon placed at the side. The sounds of stomping feet comes across from different areas of the house, upstairs and down, their faces are covered with wrinkles and tired eyes. They were dressed and ready for the day.

Today Beats Monday’s Ass!

Today has been probably one of my happiest days ever! I love it when I get cleve ideas. These Christmas cards are done, with the exception of three of them. One had to be changed. I knew I would probably have to do that. While my mom was finding out who close with which address she was reading through them. I have a history of leaving out words and having bad grammar. The first batch she did, she didn’t read them. The second batch she did. I got one card with a missing word. I’m surprised my mom didn’t fix it while she had the chance. I am so happy I did this. Even though I’ve been worried about the overseas cards. I have 7 cards going to 6 different countries. There are two that live in the same country. My mom texted me a bit ago saying that they’re all under a dollar to be sent out. I’m so happy. All 7 cards are being shipped out probably tomorrow!

I’ve recieved three cards so far! One is from family (my nana) and the other two are my Twitter friends. I got the first two the other day and I have a hard time opening the envelopes. I’m surprised I didn’t get a papercut because I completely destroyed my nana’s card envelope so much that the card will not go back in. Oops! I took a picture of the envelope after I got the card out. It is pitful. Melissa’s card is small and not as bad to get open. It actually seemed to open easier, I didn’t have to fight the damn thing. Today I got my third card. My friend Stacie, she is from the UK and her card finally arrived! My mom saw it on the coffee table and showed it to me and ripped into it before I could even say anything. She read it first and saw the special something she tucked in the envelope. It was a boy band article in a UK magazine of Backstreet Boys. I’m very proud of myself I did not cry, but I thought my mom would. I now have three “Let It Snow” Christmas cards.

Today has kicked Monday’s ass to the core! I love it! ❤

No Sleep Equals No New Ideas

It’s been awhile since I’ve actually good sleep. Probably around Monday was the last day where I had a good night’s sleep after that it’s been messed up like always. However last night I got four hours of sleep all at once, which was surprising. Then I got up around 5:30am and didn’t go back to sleep until 8am. I should have stayed up. Especially since my mom got up an hour later. That’s my luck for you.

So since my sleep has been like this all of my good ideas haven’t been coming to me at all. I’ll have little ideas but they’ll fade off an minute later and then I’m back to square one again. I’ve been like this for three days where I’ll have these little ideas and might post them and then be empty afterwards. The other day, which was Tuesday, I blogged five times from midnight to 8pm. They were scattered, but I posted alot of them. I was proud of myself. Now I can’t blog about anything at the moment. It sucks! Hopefully I’ll get some good ideas soon than later!

Dancing With The Stars, Week #2.

 

It’s Monday night again. Which means Dancing With The Stars is on and more dances were performed. Quick Step and the Jive were the two dances that were chosen this week. It’s Week 2 and everybody’s feeling the heat. Wonder whose getting voted off the Island, oh sorry! Wrong show! Wonder whose getting voted off the dance floor this week? Wait until tomorrow, during hour number two. Let’s get this started.

 

The night starts off the contestants coming down the stairs and Tom and Brooke introducing them. The band playing the them song. Everybody enjoying, waving, kissing, getting ready for the show to begin. The costumes look amazing (just saying!) and they seem very excited.

 

First of the night is Hope and Maksim. They have the Jive! Maks traveled to Canada to see her play soccer. Hope doesn’t understand the steps of the Jive. She has practice for soccer in the morning and dance practice in the afternoon. Their performance was very sporty… Hope kissed Len’s head at the end of the performance.. Len started off and he said it was quick and they lost their unison. First out, first class. Bruno thinks she lost her steps lots of times. She needs time and apply herself. Carrie-Ann loved it and she agreed with Bruno she did lose her steps. Scores were two 6’s and one 7.

 

Kristin and Mark are the second couple to go of the night. They have the Quick Step. Kristin needs to work on being a performer and show her confidence. Kristin looks like Marilyn Monroe, and they even played “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend” by Ms. Monroe. Bruno loves the old Hollywood glamour and thought she was losing her fame. Len scooted over towards Carrie-Ann. Carrie-Ann thought she was elegant and thought it was gorgeous. Len thought she looked fantastic, but thought it wasn’t as good as it looked. However, it was a good improvement from last week. Their scores were an 8 and two 7’s.

 

David and Kym were third and they are dancing to the Jive. David thinks the Jive is like him, very energetic. He needs to relax during the dance. I actually liked this dance a lot. Carrie-Ann said Carson has competition. He let lose and maybe a little too lose. Len was almost speechless. The technique wasn’t there. He liked the enthusiasm, but it was a little too bit wild. Bruno lost the timing but saw the confidence. David’s daughter Coco caught his coat. Their scores were all 6’s.

 

Elisabetta and Val were forth and they were second to last place on the bottom. They are dancing to the Quick Step. Elisabetta is not getting the steps and Val is worried. They argued during the taping of the rehearsal. Len is first said it wasn’t great but it was better than last week. Bruno liked it and thought it was hot. Carrie-Ann said she came back and nailed the steps. Their scores were all 7’s.

 

Rob and Cheryl were sixth in line and they have the Jive. Rob feels uncomfortable doing the Jive. He doesn’t feel comfortable with himself and his looks. He even put a hole in the wall with his foot. He tried to jump. This dace is a beach theme and yet feels 50’s style too. He had a standing ovation. Bruno said he was starting to blossom. Great improvement. Carrie-Ann said Rob was better than his sister Kim. Len said it was a good improvement. Their scores were all 7’s.

 

Carson and Anna were seventh Carson thought he’d like the Jive but later found out he doesn’t. He doesn’t get the coordination. He is really serious and willing to put in the work. Carrie-Ann saw improvement but yet didn’t really see it. Was worried about their kicks. Len said the worst dancers on the show are the most funniest on the show. Bruno thinks he lots to work on his techniques. They got 6’s.

 

Ricki and Derek were eighth. Derek is challenging Ricki on this Jive. Had lots of lefts and spins to it. Very good actually. Len was disturbed a little bit, he liked the fun of it. Didn’t think it had Jive. Bruno said they did the kicks and flicks the best. Carrie-Ann said best Jive of the night so far. Their scores were two 8’s and a 7.

 

Chaz and Lacey were ninth. Chaz had knee problems with his knee. They are dancing to the Quick Step. He went to the doctor and got medicine to help stop the swelling. Bruno thought it was cute but thought it wasn’t fast. Carrie-Ann could see the pain in his face. Len admire his grit and he got through it, and also didn’t like it either. Their scores were two 6’s and a 5.

 

Chynna and Tony were tenth. They danced to the Jive. Tony loves teaching Chynna and thinks she’s feisty. Says she’s a little hard on herself. Carrie-Ann really enjoyed watching Chynna. Thought she played it safe. Len thought it was good but not great. Bruno thought there is a sexy siren under. The judges seem a bit disappointed. Their scores were all 7’s.

 

Nancy and Tristan were eleventh. They danced to the Quick Step. Nancy doesn’t feel comfortable with the dancing. Nancy shut down during practice. She wants to bring her confidence to the Quick Step. Len thought it was refreshing. It was proper Quick Step. Bruno thought it was top heavy, but thought it was good. Carrie-Ann saw improvement, loved the teamwork. Their scores were a 6, 8, and 7. Len was the one who gave them the 8.

 

J.R. and Karina were last to go. They are dancing to the Jive. Karina is really challenging J.R. and made it very hard for him. I loved it! It was very good! Bruno thought he had a feel from within you. Carrie-Ann loved it, but didn’t like the lift. Len thought it was good, but didn’t think it was a Jive. Too much lifting. Their scores were two 7’s and a 8.

Almost October

It is almost October. I think one more week until the month of cute costumes, yummy candy, and the one thing I can’t stand. Scary movie previews everywhere on TV. Lovely! The first two I can deal with but the last one I hate with a passion. When I was on Google looking for a picture. I had this one thought I had to pick the cutest picture, this was the winner! She’s so adorable!

I dressed up last year and so did my sister too. Mom was generous enough to let us get costumes for Halloween. What was confusing though was that Halloween for us wasn’t celebrated on the actual day. It was celebrated the weekend before. It actually sucked since I wanted to eat candy on my birthday. Which is probably the reason why my birthday sucked anyway.

I doubt I’ll be out and about this year. Even though it was fun but a little Miss somebody wanted to ruin our fun because she didn’t like her costume, even though we all thought it was cute. She was dressed up as a witch, she was definitely a bitch that night. I don’t see myself dressing up this year especially since Halloween is on a Monday. Which people will change it to the weekend before. No scense in it this year.

This Week

This week has a number of things going on. Tonight is a sad night though. Last episode of The Closer tonight. My mom has to go to work tonight too so that just makes ten times worse because of things. I have nobody to watch it with and two I have to wait. Thing is, she knows how to work the DVR thingy so she’ll probably watch when she gets home from work tomorrow without me. Trust me, she’s done it before. Dad and Em won’t watch it with me because they don’t like the show. Well dad will watch it with mom but that’s only on his good days I think.

That’s Monday night’s show. I don’t have anything on Tuesday, which is a good thing because in a matter few days it’s going to be my only good night of not watching anything on a schedule. Wednesday, nothing on TV but it is September 14th. If you are a big Linkin Park fan like moi that day is really special. It’s the one year birthday of Linkin Park’s album, “A Thousand Suns.” If I remember right I think we’re all trying to make it trend on Twitter, but I don’t know that’s going to go. It would be nice and everything, but the trends just seem to hate us for some odd reason.

Thursday, it’s the BIG day! The long four month wait is over on that day. I am so excited! The Vampire Diaries season 3 starts up on Thursday. I might watch the new show The Secret Circle afterwards but if the episode gets all crazy with their twists and turns then I may not be able to watch it because I’ll be still in that mood and possibily pissed off at some of the characters and director for making it end so early. I’ve done that before. I’ve screamed because people think its funny to scare the shit out of me when it comes on. I’ve cried but only twice. And last but not least I’ve yelled at the characters because of their stupid actions.
