Did I mention that I'm going to kill my computer?

If not then I'm going to kill my computer. Why? What did I ever do to you? Sure I've accidentally dropped you from time to time, but I always made sure you were nice and safe after. An yes I'm sure that with my nonstop novel writing you feel just a little abused. But computer I love you. Please don't leave me. I promise to be good and kind and to never drop you again. Just work please!
On a side note I'm going through withdrawls from not writing. Yes I'm writing novel. It's a love story and pretty funny if I do say so myself. I'm not really writing it to publish it, just for fun and because it helps get rid of some of the clutter in my brain (which trust me there's alot).
In other news: Twilight made $70.6 million this weekend!!!!!!!!! Yes I went to the midnight showing. Pictures are on my computer so that's just freaking brilliant. But we had so much fun, and I accidentally started a chant when Rob Pattinson started to take off his shirt. I fairly quietly called "take it off!" which made all the little girls say "take it off!!! *squeal!!!!*" Teenyboppers beware: he's mine, and I will have no problem crushing you sticks.... Wow that was creepy and I'm a little afraid of myself now.... Yes there was alot of screaming and I actually tried to bite my lip off. No joke. I almost succeeded too. The first time was when Rob Pattinson came on the screen, which was a glorious moment in film history by the by, and I bite the top of my lip, just a little too hard. There was some blood, but no biggy. Then durring the fight sceen I suceeded in making a noce size gash on the top of my lip. It hurt. My heart had to be restarted after the kiss sceen. And there were some camera angles that I really enjoyed. Aside from being a fangirl and being in love with a vampire, I have to say it was actually a really good movie! It was different from the book, but deffinatly worked. They did a great job of translating the book to the screen. If I hadn't read the books I can honestly say that I would have really liked the movie. There was just enough myster, action, romance, and suspence to fill any film goers taste. Yes there were some campy, and cheesy lines, but really who hasn't dreamed of having a bad boy tell you that you are now his life and he will do whatever it takes to make you safe again? So go ride a rhino film critics, or read the book. Then tell me that the language was dumb. Rant aside, I have now seen it twice. We went last night to go see it again, and are due to see it twice more this week, and possibly next Sunday too. I will happily go broke to see this movie. And in other joyous news they've already decided to make the second one! Which is highly depressing, and does not feature alot of Rob Pattinson, but still he's in it! Anyhoodles, go see the movie. It is honestly just a good movie. And if you happen to have a thing for boys with pretty eyes, arms and jawlines, then you will deffinatly enjoy it! But back off, cuz he's mine.
Okay enough for now! I'm going back to try and resurect my computer, wish me luck.

"But button's don't have faces!"


This is Delaney. She is my little sis. She is as cute as a button. Dee and I are alot alike in more ways than we'd like to admit. She is the middle child and a little shy, but she's got a wit that could kick yours in the pants. She's the miracle baby. She almost died when she was born and we were told she would probably die before she was nine. Delaney is now 13 and the brightest, sweetest, most spirited young woman on the planet. She's quirky and bizarre, and I love her to pieces! So here is our adventures from today:

I was supposed to go to class this morning and then I was going to go to the mall to get something for tonight's Twilight premiere. But then due to the strangest dream I have EVER had, I fell back asleep and woke up as my class was starting. Oops! Well then I decided to go to the mall anyways, and since Dee is as much a fangirl as I am I thought why the hell not take her along. So Dee and I were talking this morning getting ready to go and mentioned that she cannot wait to get her hair cut. For like a month and a half she has wanted to get her hair cut like the Ashley Greene in Twilight. Ashley Greene plays Alice Cullen, and has some pretty freaking cute hair:
I thought she'd look really cute with her hair like this. It's quirky and funky and pretty adorable. So I jokingly said to Dee "yeah well we could go get it done today." So off we went to Hot Topic to go buy Twilight tees. Then we went and got her hair cut.


And the incredible after:


And this one:

So all in all it was a highly successful morning. We bought tees for tonight and Delaney got a poster for her bedroom, and we picked up our tickets for the movie and got everything planned! I'm so excited! I will post pics of us in our shirts tomorrow! So go see the movie and have fun!

Dear Jeniffer Conally,

Y'know, I've always liked you. Granted I think watching The Rocketter ranks up there with being tied down and jabbed with needles until I slowly bleed out. But you had some pretty hot style in that movie. And you've kept it up with your other films and in real life, and I actually like you alot. Yes it is partially because you are married to Paul Bettany, who I vow I will some day kiss just for the hell of it, but it's also because you are very talented, and very beautiful and all around a cool person. So then, why dear Jen did you go and do this:


What three year old did you steal a beach romper from? Did said toddler have a personal seamstress named Maria Von Trapp? Cuz that looks like bits of a couch were torn up and then made into the romper that you then stole. And really those shoes? Really? I mean I thought that killing a zebra and then skinning them for shoes was taboo? Or was it one of thos optical illusions things where the black and white swirl spin around and around trying to make you dizzy? Were you trying to make everyone who saw you dizzy? I mean if that was your point them kudos lady! You did a killer job. But I'm thinking your stylist needs to go to the optometrist here. That or she/he was just getting desperate and so they ate a couch, some lacing off a dominatrix costume, and a zebra and then threw up on you and was all "Voila! Tres chic!" I'm really worried for you. I really would like for you to be on the best dressed list again. So give back the romper, and the zebra and get yourself to a Target. They have some really cute dresses for very cheap.

With love and concern,

Your Fan,

A blog of gigantic proportions.

I am having the best day! No really I am! I've been trying to figure out what it was that has made today so awesome- which is the best word to descibe today. Here's some of the things that may have contributed to today's awesomness:
  • THE best dream EVER. It followed a horrible nightmare that I forced myself to wake up from. When I fell back asleep, though... It was almost worth the nightmare.
  • I actually woke up on time today. Which like never happens. My alarm went off at 6 and I was in the shower at 6:17. It was a great shower too.
  • So I was going through my closet for things to wear today. I saw my blue & white polka dot dress. I thought, "Hmm why don't i wear this more often?" I tried it on. It looked cute. I grabbed the slip and cami that i have to wear with it. I put them on and felt like i was missing something ( yes I was wearing underware). I remembered why I don't wear it. I usually have to wear my tummy smoother thing because it's just a little tight. I no longer have to wear said smoother. It's still tight in the boobage, but not as bad as before! So yay!
  • I actually ate breakfast. I know big woop, but for me it is. I really do love to eat breakfast, but I almost never bother. So this morning I had a lovely plate of fried eggs (which I am beginning to adore unnaturally), bacon (which i already unnaturally adore), and a really, really good cup of coffee. So, score me!
  • I was on time AND prepared for class today. Usually the being on time isn't an issue, but the prepared is pretty rare. I hate this class and am so unmotivated to do anything for it. But I actually did my homework.
  • Um... I saw THE most gloriously beautiful man on the planet sitting at a table outside the Quad. Seriously. My jaw dropped, I oggled, I had a hard time with coherencey. I dropped my book behind him and he picked it up and handed it to me, and I said this exact sentence: "oh thanksmhahid;llhadoisdfhhn..............hsfjkwsdbvfjhvfb." Then I blushed and walked away like a retard while I bit my lip off. So then I stood outside my class waiting for the class before us to let out, and he was in my line of sight, so naturally I watched him. And he motioned to me and talked to his friends. And I blushed and turned away, but not before we made a little eye contact. Well as best we could through his Ray Banz and my Heart sunglasses. And he was wearing a Henley that was just a little too tight, and he had the arms rolled up just enough to expose his lovely arm. And THEN he took off the sunglasses and had THE prettiest blue eyes I have ever seen on a fellow. Then he left for class, which made me sad, but he did smile at me as he passed by where I was talking casually with a classmate. So wherever you are Ray Banz/Henley guy, you made my morning, feel free to stop by again.
  • My class was almost fun. And I became the hero to all the guys in the class. We were discussing whether you should disclose that you slet with their best friend to your fiancee. All the guys said yes, the girls said no. I said yes. The guys loved me. The girls hated me. I was told that I was, and I quote, "the only smart girl in this whole damn class", and that I was obviously a good girlfriend because I was "actually honest with a dude." My teacher said that I and the chaps in the class were right, but the other girls all started attacking me, which made all the guys go off. It was highly entertaining. Then my Professor started going into her sex life and killed the mood.
  • I saw a news clip with Rob Pattinson. Are you at all aware of the gloriousness of he who is called Rob Pattinson? Well you should be. Please, please, please marry me? My mom has decided he is the perfect man for me, which probably a bad thing. He drives a crappy car that he loves and lives off Snapple and hot pockets. I used to drive a crappy car that I love and live off Crystal Light Fruit Punch and cheese-itz. Also he's English. Hi Rob I'm Ashley. I live in Orangecrest, in Riverside. I'll give you directions.
  • I had to take the bus home. My cell phone is dead. I had no idea what time it was. I was at the bus stop for 30 seconds before my bus pulled up, and she took the short route home.
  • I stopped at Walgreens to get toothpaste before I walked home. I bought toothpaste and went to go price teeth whitening strips. The ones I wanted were on sale for ten bucks. Rob pattinson was a cover blurb on Star Magazine. I bought it. His picture has been ripped out of the magazine, and the rest of it is discarded.
  • I realized that Twilight is in TWO DAYS!!!!!!! Hey did you know that Rob Pattinson is in that? Oh also he was listed as the 7th Sexiest man on a yahoo thing this week. I offer this proof: Photobucket and this: Photobucket ((This is my favourite pic!) That other guy, who is also a particularly fine looking man, is also in Twilight with Rob Pattinson) If you don't agree with me, well you can just go fly a kite for all I care.
  • I had the house to myself for a couple hours today. Yay!
  • I weighed myself. Normally I would not put this on a list of how FEE-nominally good my day was, but here's the thing: I have been "dieting" since October, which just means that I eat less, and move more. Recently people have commented on how I look like I've lost weight. 'Bout freaking time I say. The reason I started this in October is because I weighed myself and almost screamed with dispair. I didn't look like it, but i was almost 300 lbs! I know scary crap. When I weighed myself today the scale, which I have been assured is not broken, told me that I have lost...... drum roll please....... 35 lbs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So that was cool...

Well my parents are gone for the day and I'm on kiddo duty. We're going to go get movies and I'm going to go to Bed, Bath, and Beyond and buy bins for my room. I might just treat the little squirts to some smoothies. Afterall spread the joy.

So how is your day going? Mine's been great!

I'm going to post later about all the goodies I got from Pilgrims Place this past weekend. So tootles till then!

Happy Monday

I know I'm a horrible blogist. Horrible. I haven't even been that busy lately, I just didn't feel like writing. It's been an interesting couple of weeks. Some good times, some bad times, some really crap times. But things are really good. I cannot wait for this semester to be done! And I'm excited that the Holidays are coming. The next few weeks are going to be fun! So today I was thinking about it being a Monday and all. I doesn't feel like a Monday to me. But the point is that somehow through the mixing of thoughts in my brain I started to compile a list of things that ALWAYS get me through the Monday Blues. So for your reading pleasure here are my top 10 Monday Blues Blasters.
10. Radio Commercials- As a general rule I hate commercials. Especially on music stations. But there are a few Radio Commercials that make me laugh out loud and smile all day. The first is for Volkswagen, I think. The guy in it is talking about this car and suddenly you hear this little boys voice yelling "Yay! Zoom Zoom!" and then the sales man acts all confused, and another man says "oh pardon me, talking about cars makes my inner child excited. it happens with some things, cool cars, poprocks." so then the sales man continues on about how great the car is, and then suddenly the little boys voice comes on again and says "yay! we're gonna drive fast and drink orange soda and eat Poprocks!" You have to listen to this commercial! it cracks me up every time! It always puts a smile on my face.
9. Californiana- What the hell is that you ask? it's like Americana. What is it that most people think of when they think of California? Beaches, Hollywood, surfing, sun, summer, flip-flops. Mostly California drives me nuts, but sometimes when I sit back and reflect on the fact that I am a tried and true CA native it's kinda cool. Hell ya I can go to the beach in December. Disneyland is my playground. I always laugh when I hear references people make about California, like the stereotypical California. I take it for granted, while some people dream about being able to experience things I live daily. And I can't even begin to tell you what a California Sunset can do to you. It's magical.
8. Crystal Light Water bottle packets- Who is the genius who came up with this stuff? I want to kiss him and be his slave. Not really, but honestly it's like Kool-Aid for grown-ups! I'm a big fan of Kool-Aid, and now I can have it without all the sugar! yay!!!
7. Peppermint anything- Mochas, candy, gum, mints, coffee, and whatever else you can flavour with Peppermint is my favourite. It's just good, and happy and yummy.
6. Smooth Writing Pens- I HATE gloopy pens. Y'know where the ink gets all gobby and leaves big muck spots whenever you write. I love pens that write smoothly. I actually have a horrible habit of stealing pens if I like the way it writes. My current favourite is this really long blue inked one with a funky cap. I keep it in my purse so I don't have to use any other pen no matter where I go.
5. My Shampoo- I use Sunsilk waves of envy for my retardedly wavy hair. It's magic in a blue bottle. It smells like the beach after a storm. No joke. It's all Sea Kelp infused and it's like a day at the beach sans the icky sand. The other products that go with it are amazing too! They feel very natural and never make me feel like I'm actually wearing product in my hair. Plus they make my hair feel soft and light. Magic!
4. Post-its- I have an unnatural love of post its. I ALWAYS use the hot pink ones. They are the best.
3. Boys with pretty eyes, nice arms, and nice jawlines- Do I really need to explain? I didn't think so. *swoon*
2. Really Good Soundtracks- Y'know those soundtracks where it's like they threw a bunch of crappy songs into a bingo ball cage and then randomly let them fall out? yeah I don't like them. I do however really love it when a soundtrack is AMAZING! What makes an amazing soundtrack? First off it should fit the feel of the movie, without shoving the movie down your throat. Secondly it should be eclectic, featuring many styles and types of artists. Thirdly it should be in an order that makes sense. Fourthly it should feature a boy with pretty eyes, nice arms, and a nice jawline. If you're looking for a good soundtrack, I highly recommend the Twilight soundtrack. even if I wasn't a Twerd, I would love this soundtrack! So good!
And The Number one thing that always gets me through Mondays with a smile is:
1. Claude Debussy- There are not enough words in any language in the world for me to rightly describe his music. Debussy has been my favourite composer for as long as I can remember, though it's not something I generally discuss. He wrote very passion and pain filled music. As a French Romantic Composer, his music is just so perfect for the era and genre. I get goose bumps just talking about it! It's so beautiful! The emotions he can make you feel in just one note are overwhelming. There is nothing like it in the world, no comparison is good enough. If you're interested in hearing his music, there's a really great play list on Myspace Music. Claire De Lune is one of his most famous pieces, but my all time favourites are Reverie and Nocturne. Both are magical. But listen to Claire De Lune. It's a very good representation of the kind of music he wrote, plus it's like five mins. long. I have a weakness for long piano pieces. All three of the above pieces are on the link. Oh and remember my number 2? Claire De Lune is a bonus song on the Twilight soundtrack if you buy it from iTunes. That's right. My memoirs are going to be called Of Vampires and Debussy: Being a Romantic in a Post Modern World. It's going to be a world wide best seller.
Okay so that's my list. What's yours? Have a Happy Monday Everyone!
