Farwell Jay

Well I watched Jay's Last episode of the Tonight Show. It was good. Jay's show was the first late night show I watched by the suggestion of my dad. That summer I got into late nite tv. I watched his show, but then I realized I preferred Letterman. Eventually I watched Conan too. I think I didn't really watch Snyder. This was back in 1995 and I was 11. I remember we would play "talk show" in my 6th grade class. I use to like to impersonate Letterman. It was a really bad one. I think I use to do was open my mouth really wide, say random things, and tap a pencil on the desk. An 11 year old girl impersonating Letterman just looked really silly.

I think it's going to be hard for me to choose between Conan and Letterman because I think they both give great monologues. I never really cared for Jay's monologues. To be honest I don't think he is as funny as Letterman or Conan. Sure I enjoyed some of his segments like Headlines and Jaywalking. I really miss the string dance Conan does. I haven't seen it in months.

Yesterday I saw an interview with Conan about moving to LA and his new show. It was funny because he says he doesn't like the Lakers. He said when he sees Laker flags on cars he breaks them off. He also says he likes In-N-Out burgers. I wonder if he has tried animal fries. Conan if you are reading this blog like you would. LOL! Try those they are good. He was also saying about how much he likes the weather here. He said he likes to see celebrities doing mundane things. Here's to catching Conan doing something mundane! ^-^

The ending of Jay's show was sort of strange with all the kids. I really though he was going to do something car related.

To be honest I can't wait to see Conan's new show! Plus he said he's bringing back Andy! :0
I wish Conan the best of luck with his new show. ;)

Miscellaneous blog #8

While I was looking for a different definition in the Urban Dictionary I came across "Closet Latino". The funny thing is that a lot of people accuse me of being one of them. I'm actually not. When I tell people I'm half Mexican they tell me "Shut Up! White girl!" or even worse insults. The other problem is that my mom who is Mexican doesn't look like a stereotypical one. I'm not sure what one would look like. I guess the person would be dark, short and have straight hair. My mom is tall light skinned and has curly hair. Plus having a "white" (Scottish) last name doesn't help either.

Yesterday I wrote a tweet on Twitter about social networking being a chain reaction. Here's my tweet: "Why does it seem like social networking sites are like a chain reaction?". Then I started getting bots and internet business people following me. What I actually meant by that tweet was that like when you send a message to somebody on a social networking site you don't know what that will lead to. Like you might get annoying messages from a friend of the person you sent a message to that you never liked in the first place. That is just way too long to convey in a little tweet.

To slientbeeker I'm still working on your present. Sorry if it looks a little uh..."ghetto". I still can't find all my crafting supplies.

I Prefer Blonds

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve always had this desire to be a blond. It was never secret either. I was very vocal about this.

I know I have a thing for blonds. This can be easily explained by conditioning by my grandma on my father’s side. All she would ever do was fuss over her “blond babies”. Seriously that’s what she would call them. I was the brown headed grandchild. I use to feel so left out.

I tried very hard to belong though. I thought maybe if I hung out with them maybe I would be more like them even if I wasn’t a blond. When we would take a picture it looked like a segment out of Sesame Street “One of these things is not like the others”. The funny thing is now that I’m older, and I have “let my self go” in the past few years. I don’t want to visit them because I’m not all caught up in the beauty contest. I don’t want them to see me like this. I want to be like the Undertaker. I want to be elusive. It wouldn’t hurt if I could choke slam people either. :P

You know my grandma is not a natural blond although she claims she was. Her “story” is that when she was a child she got sick (I‘m not sure what her ailment was) and all her hair fell out. This was probably about 70 years ago. She said it grew back dark. She says she was blond, but her hair photographed dark. The funny thing is all the other blond people in the photos had their hair photograph white. This was back when there was only black and white photos. My hair photographs dark too…oh wait it is dark. For some strange reason in my 4th grade class photo it looks black. The funny thing is people ask me how I was born with brown hair since my mom has black hair and my dad is a blond. I don’t know I guess the colors just mixed. Too bad I couldn’t be like Rini/Chibiusa she has a blond and black haired parent, and was born with pink hair. Her red eyes look a little creepy though. Here’s a picture of her for reference.
How I got my light colored eyes well that was just the double recessive gene. I think?...

I hate the color brown in all forms not just for hair. I hate brown clothes and shoes. I remember reading in a magazine that the way you feel about colors has to do with your childhood like if you are brought up in the west then you would associate black with death and white with weddings. If you were born in the east you would associate white with death and red with weddings. I also hate the color navy blue because I associate it with school uniforms.

My blond preference was very evident. As a child I preferred blond dolls. I use to want be friends with blond kids just cause they were blonds. I know now that was pretty discriminatory.

Here is a list of some of my favorite fictional blonds: Stella, Bubbles, Sailor Moon, Phoebe, Angelica I’m not all about the blonds though. There are some characters I like who are not blond like Punky Brewster, Ariel, and Dorie/Doremi.

Graduates and Champions

Here is a really funny graduation/NBA Finals related story. Back when I was graduating high school in 2002, yes I’m that old. They gathered us up for some sort of senior meeting or something. I use to find these mandatory meetings annoying, boring, and rather lame.

A lot of people were getting mad at me because I didn’t feel like crying. I‘m not even sure why I needed to. I was happy to leave the place. They kept getting mad because I said the only tears I might cry would be tears of joy because I finally was out of school.

This was the morning of graduation. They were trying to get us pumped up about graduating. They were telling us about the Lakers winning the Championship. They wanted us to applaud that. Ok I was cool with that. Then they wanted us to applaud ourselves because we were graduating and that deserved applause. I didn’t think we did. A lot of people graduate high school. You know how hard it is to get into the NBA? And then be on a team that won the Championship? I only applauded the Lakers.

Miscellaneous blog #7

I went to the store today to see if there was any good colors of hair dye on sale. Most of the colors that were on sale were shades of brown. EW! I hate brown hair! Maybe I should finish my blog explaining why I hate it. They had blond dye, but it wasn't on sale :( I'd like to be a blond it's such a summer hair color.

Maybe the WWE going to Staples tonight did hurt the Lakers. they lost by a lot tonight. Well you can blame me for not having a lot of faith in them on Saturday although they pulled it out. Now they are tied 2-2.

Speaking of the Lakers I saw a lot of flags on cars today and got nostalgic again. There were a lot of flags for sale at the store too. They even had Lakers reusable shopping bags. There's nothing better than saving the environment and showing your support for the Lakers at the same time.

I went to the shoe store too. The shoes now are so ugly. They are too bold and colorful. I don't really like bold shoes anymore. A few years ago I went "crazy" and I got some cherry print shoes. I don't like printed shoes because they can really clash with your outfit. Call me old fashioned, but I love black shoes. I have so many different pairs of black shoes. I'm not a breaker, but I love Adidas shelltoes. They are just so comfortable.

Miscellaneous blog #6

I decided that my messed up twitter profile is just frustrating me too much. I decided to walk away from it for a bit. I will still be going on the site to read what the people I follow have to say. I might miss something important.

I made a octopus hot dog today. I got the idea from watching Erin’s Challenge! I Can Speak Japanese. They show how to make them in episode 2. They call them “octopus wieners”. I know the title sounds a little perverted. Here’s instructions on how to make them. These instructions tell you to put the hot dog in the microwave. On the show they said to fry them. I fried mine. You can also make little eyes with sesame seeds. I didn’t have any on hand so I just cut the features on with a knife. Here is a picture of it. My mom thought I was trying to be like Shirley by taking a picture of food, but I wasn’t this time. I just wanted people to see what I had cooked. The picture does need a proper title.

My octopus hot dog
Or you could always buy this neat little item. Although it only cuts the hot dog into 6 pieces which would really make a “squid”.

You know there is something I always wanted to do. To learn hip hop dancing. It’s not because of all those dance show that have become popular recently. I’ve wanted to learn how to hip hop dance since I was about 8. I think i should get in shape first before I attempt this. I 'd really like to learn how to dance correctly.

Hurt my leg today. I fell on my bed. It’s amazing how quickly my knee bruised up. It’s all purpley.

I know a lot of the fans are still mad about the cancellation of Terminator. I’m not swearing off Fox. For 2 reasons: I don’t get many channels, and because I enjoy their animated shows; although the Simpsons has been lacking in recent years. You know this is the same thing that happened when The OC got canceled. Why can’t people be mature about this kind of thing? Plus Glee looks like a good show.

miscellaneous blog #5

Sorry for the lack of blogs this week. I don't know why I'm feeling a lot more lethargic than usual.

I usually don't blog about sports much, but I'll talk about the Lakers and WWE briefly. I think that Vince cursed the Lakers by acting so silly to get mainstream media attention. I can be a little superstitious about sports, and I'm not even a big basketball fan. You know the Lakers have been in the NBA Finals 5 times in the past 9 years.They won 3 back when they had that dynasty goin' on. Laker flags on cars make me nostalgic. They also lost 2 series; 1 to Detroit and 1 to Boston. Remember when the Nuggets use to wear jerseys with a rainbow on them?

For some reason I splurged on nail polish again. I guess I liked it because it changed color outdoors which really shouldn't be something that appeals to me since I hardly ever go outside anymore. Maybe this summer it will be my goal to get pasty instead of tanning. It'll help me with coming up with a Halloween costume in the late summer/early fall. I guess I bought it because it was $1.

I'd like to dedicate some more songs. To the couple I dedicated "Deadwood" to I'm dedicating "Sailin' On" the No Doubt cover to them. To the person moving to New York I'd like to dedicate them a song about New York since I neglected to do that in the last dedication blog I wrote. I'm dedicating "Autumn in New York" to them.

I can't think of a good or clever title.

I just want get this blog out quickly while I have time between Gossip Girl and True Tears. True Tears is a good anime BTW. Highly recommended.

It's official Terminator got canceled. :( Too bad I was really enjoying that show, and not just because Shirley was in it. I was getting into the plots and such. Well I guess that means she can focus on her music. I was really hoping it would get renewed since Dollhouse got a second season. That was before I read why it did. It did because it's a Fox owned show, and Terminator is a WB franchise. I'm thinking about buying the season 2 DVDs, but I'm not sure yet. I even left her an inane post on her wall on regarding the show. I really hope she blogs about it on her facebook page. I look at the cancellation as something kind of good and kind of bad. I know she has just gotten into acting, but I'll always think of her as a musician first. That's how I became a fan of her in the first place. I want her to do what makes her happy. I should write something silly like the WWE writes to the talent they release. They write something like "we would like to wish (wrestler's name) the best in their future endeavors." A lot of the fans of the show are angry about this. I would say I'm more sad or disappointed.

Here is some crappy PPG style Shirley fanart I made last month. Shirley looks like she's wearing a horse riding outfit.

I was going to write about some other random things, but this deserves to get it's own blog.

miscellaneous blog #4

I just feel like uh... freestyle blogging. This blog was not preplanned or prewritten.

Yesterday I tried a Philly cheese steak sandwich from Domino's. I was thinking about having sushi, but I went for a sandwich instead. It was really good. I ordered it with no mushrooms though. I hate mushrooms. I would love to go to this place I heard about in LA where they say they make cheese steak sandwiches just like they do in Philly. I remember it being mentioned on the radio before. Which made me think. What is the specialty food of LA? Do we even have one?

So Dollhouse got renewed for another season... I wonder if that means Terminator will too? Here's hoping. Maybe Shirley won't be an unemployed actress. the new schedule will be announced tomorrow.

I want to change my hair again. I'm dissatisfied with it. I could use another dye job. My hair is faded dark red with brown roots. I'm thinking a funky color like pink or yellow (not blond).

(no title)

You know how I’ve been obsessing over this blog lately and needed to take a step away from it because of that.

A few weeks ago I realized something. I feel isolated because I’m really getting any social interaction. I mean like just talking to people in person. I don’t mean like partying or anything like that. That’s not my style. Pretty much all the social interaction I get is by bickering with my dad.

I hardly ever speak either. I think I “talk” more online than I do in person. I’m not really sad or anything; I just feel more reserved; even at home. I just don’t feel like talking.

You know now I understand when celebrities say they feel isolated. I am by no means famous or anything, but I think I understand. The funny thing is that usually I thrive on solitude. I’m an only child I can deal with being alone. I can be a lone wolf sometimes. I perfectly content with eating alone or seeing a movie alone.

I decided to go back to school when it starts up. I need some interaction. I decided that I’ll take a class that I don’t need transcripts for like an elective or something just to see how I like the school. I’m taking everything day by day since the future is uncertain.

I want to look at it with an “All or Nothing” attitude since I might not be able to transfer without an AA which I really don’t want. This is one of the tendencies of people born under the year of the pig. I’m going to try and meet with a counselor to see what my options are.

Worst Tutor Ever!

This blog reflects my qualms about going back to school.

Yeah so I’m not in school right now. There is good reason for me not to be and that is my dad. Last time when he wasn’t working and I was in school (junior college) he would keep going to school with me and bothering me. The problem with him is that I don’t know he just doesn’t seem to trust me or something. It’s not like I’ve done something wrong. He’s a lot like my grandma (his mother). He just has to like oversee things. He’s a micromanager helicopter dad.

I don’t trust him if I go to a new school. I know he will tell me that he “needs” to go with me because I’m new to that school, and I don’t know it very well. Then he’ll talk about some class he took there in the 80s, and how he knows his way around the school which has probably been remodeled since then.

Back when I was in high school and struggling with algebra and geometry my dad “tried” to tutor me. First off let me say he’s a horrible tutor. He just gets way too frustrated. He says he good at math, but he’s not that good. I will say he’s better than me at it.

That’s why whenever I have homework that I know he’ll want to try and help me with even if he is working I will try, and do my homework when he is not home or asleep. My mom thinks I do my homework at strange hours because I’m lazy, but I’m just avoiding my dad. I’ll do homework he can’t help me with in front of him like writing essays on books he hasn’t read or practicing Japanese.

Request Hour

I haven’t written a blog like this in a while. I feel like writing one like this again so here goes.

I’d like to dedicate “Deadwood” by Garbage to a couple I know. They are not familiar with this song though.

To the person moving to New York I’d like to dedicate “It‘s All Over But The Crying” by Garbage both versions. I’d also like to dedicate “Peaches and Cream” by 112 since I know how much you use to love that song. I know you like No Doubt, but I can’t remember what your favorite song is; maybe you neglected to tell me. I know you do like the album “Tragic Kingdom”.

To all the graduates out there I’d like to dedicate “Graduation” by Vitamin C.

These look like they were drawn by a 1st Grader

I think these drawings are too ugly and simple to even put on Deviantart. I might change my mind though. I drew them in 1st grade.

I drew these during my obsession with the Rescue Rangers.

Just A Girl on American Idol

I put up with a lot for No Doubt/Gwen including enduring Seacrest. If you know me or read this blog you know about my hate for Seacrest. I haven’t had to endure Seacrest for Shirley…yet. I did for Cena like 2 months ago.

No Doubt’s appearance on American Idol was great! It made me think about how much I love Gwen. See? It’s not always about Shirley. This made me think they can book No Doubt, but not Shirley Manson who was/is on a show that was shown on Fox? Go figure! @o@

Gwen looked awesome! She was dressed in her old Tragic Kingdom era clothes. I mean like all she needed was a bindi. She looks good for having 2 kids. I noticed her tops aren’t as cropped as they use to be, but Gwen is maturing. She’s going to be 40 in October. Her hair looked great it was like a mix of the way she wore it in the “Live in the Tragic Kingdom” video/DVD and the way she was wearing it during her solo career. It seemed weird to see Gwen wearing a light colored nail polish. Adrian looked like he was a mix of the Tragic Kingdom era mixed with Return of Saturn. Aside from Gwen I think Adrian has been the most interestingly dressed. I would say the most of all the guys and I’m including Gabe and Steve.

Starburst GummiBursts Review

I was going to write a blog about No Doubt’s appearance on American Idol, but I’ll save that topic for tomorrow. This blog was already written a few days ago. It was just sittin’ around taking up space in my hard drive.

The bag. The Picture was a little hard to take.

This is a nice idea get a gummi and fill it up with a liquid. Just to let you know they are almost exactly like gushers fruit snacks. Do they still make those? The gummi “shell” is not as hard as most gummis, but it was sturdier than a gusher shell. There were no broken or punctured gummis in the pack. I was surprised since I dropped the bag accidentally a few times.

The candy on a plate.

Lemon- my least favorite of the 4 flavors
Orange- good, nothing really special about it
Strawberry- my favorite out of the 4; I think it had the best flavor of all of them
Cherry- tasted almost exactly like cherry gushers

Here’s the commercial. Please tell me if the link is broken.

Get in the Car

On Saturday I was pretending to drive until my mom caught me. There was no key in the ignition or anything; plus as I was pretending to drive I was singing “Driving Lesson”. She wanted to know what I was doing and singing.

My cousin gave a silly idea what if there was a Garbage version of Rock Band or Guitar Hero? That would be such a cool game. You know what I wouldn’t mind a No Doubt version either. I’m not picky I’d take either.

My mom asked me if I was embarrassed because a lot of um…kids who are like 10 years younger than me are learning how to drive. Maybe…a little. Well not being able to drive was my secret shame for many years until I announced that I couldn’t on my old blog. Plus knowing that Shirley didn’t know how to drive for a long time didn’t make me feel so bad.

I have no problem with learning all the written rules in the book and taking the written test.

Although I’m still a little discouraged and terrified of getting behind the wheel. I DO NOT want my dad to try and teach me how to drive again; he mostly just screamed at me and told me what I was doing wrong. Being in a car with him stresses me out; immensely. I really want to take a class a reputable driving school. The only reason I went to the one I originally went to was because it was cheap and it showed. I learned all these bad habits like riding the curb and pumping the break. I am very enthusiastic to start again all I need is the right teacher/program and some money to pay for it.

Which reminds me I should take a picture of myself pretending to drive a car? And then post it on all my profiles like a lot of people do? Maybe I should wear some cool sunglasses too.

I remembered another song I added to the play list since I heard it recently. “Damaged” by Danity Kane. I think I didn’t list that one because I didn’t really want anybody to know I like that song. It’s like a guilty pleasure. Most current pop music no matter how little of it I listen to is a guilty pleasure. If only I could find that list…

I don’t do illegal drugs. I’m a child of the 80s. You know The war on drugs, Just Say No, and all that stuff. Because if you do drugs you will end up being an addict immediately. Ok maybe I watched too many after school specials and anti drug shows as a kid. Although I do use caffeine which some people consider a “drug”, but I don’t really. You can chalk me up as being a “bad” person for that. Plus I drink soda, and I love gum.

You know if illegal drugs were personified pot would be a green punk lady, booze would be a hobo, cocaine would be like a female ghost, and tobacco would be a cowboy. You think I made this up? Or I did too many drugs? Oh screw that I’ll just get talked out of doing drugs by cartoon characters.

When I like to drown my sorrows in something I don’t use alcohol or cigarettes. I use sugar. I must admit I am a sugar addict. This is not code for anything. I love sweets. They are one of my weaknesses. I am very particular about what I eat though. I don’t just eat any old candy.

My favorite type of candy has to be gummis. I’ve been in love with that kind of candy since I was little. That was back during the gummi craze of the 80s. I don’t know if I could ever go vegan they can’t eat gummis because they contain cow’s foot. That’s what makes them gel like with gelatin. If I do ever become vegan I’m taking up smoking along with it. I don’t know if I have a favorite type/kind of gummi. I like peach rings, white gummi bears, pink watermelon flavored bears, cola bottles, hamburgers, pizza, hot dogs, and a lot more I can’t even think of.

It’s not all about the gummis for me. I also like chocolate. I bet if somebody made me a candy line up that wasn’t rigged with only Twix bars I bet I could distinguish them. As long as they didn’t put any kind of foreign candy I didn’t recognize. I love milk chocolate. I don’t really like white or dark. They have to be with the right flavor combinations. For example I love those white chocolate cookies and cream bar. I like dark chocolate with some kind of filling like in a Mounds bar.

I love hard candy too. You know like lollypops and stuff like that. If my mind wasn’t so warped by tv as a child. I can still recall the ring pop jingle from the 80s.
♪♫“It‘s a juicy jewel of flavor. Ring Pop! It‘s a lollypop without a stick!”♪♫
Come on everybody sing along! Don’t forget other candies like Blow Pops, Push Pops, and Tootsie Pops, Werther‘s Originals.

Let’s not forget caramel I love Royals, caramel apples, Kraft caramels, and of course caramel filled chocolates. Royals are so hard to find now. I liked the vanilla and orange ones. Who am I kidding? I like all the verities.

Oh yeah I almost forgot I have a great line for an anti drug PSA. “The only thing I smoke is meat”. Then there should be a shot of a kid in a smoke house with different types of meat.

Mystery Dolls

I found these clippings from old Toys R Us circulars from the 90s. (I think the mid to late 90s)

This angel doll looks familiar, but I’m drawing a blank on the name.

The doll with the hat. Her hat had hair a bunch of hair accessories in it. I remember in the commercial the hat would be pulled off the doll and a bunch of hair accessories would fall out of the hat.

Does anybody have any idea who these dolls are?
