I’m thinking about things a lot of people remember and not things I would remember. Not a lot of people remember the presentation I did on tootsie rolls or the story I wrote about a possum. Or my Halloween memories.

I got a free day today!

I ate my toasted cheese sandwich early in the morning. I also ate onion dip and summer sausage for breakfast. I did because I thought my dad left early, but he really went to the store. After he officially left. I got to work. I had to do chores this time since I'm on thin ice. Listened to "Why do you Love Me" aloud. I never really get to do that anymore. I also sang some other songs aloud too really loudly. (I'm not naming the songs. They weren't Garbage songs.)

After jumping on the bed to "Sex is not the Enemy" and realizing it wasn't as gratifying as I thought it would be. I didn't want to jump too high because the bed I have now is really high off the ground. I don't want to go around telling people I hit my head on the ceiling jumping on my bed to the song "Sex is not the Enemy". After I did that I quickly tweeted about it. "Jumping on the bed to 'Sex is not the Enemy' was not as gratifing as I thoght it would be :("

I was looking over something I wrote in March and my handwriting is so messy I can't even decipher it. I think I wrote something about Cameron from the Sarah Connor Chronicles, but it might say "Camry". I'm not sure. Another thing I wrote was about finding my way through the school and the different hallways.

The list of banned words is out. I use a lot of them way too much! Doh! What an "Epic Fail"! @o@ Does this mean I can't say "I failed college algebra" or "If you don't write that term paper on termites for your biology class you're gonna fail"? I didn't even know what "BFF" meant until 7th grade. I thought it was the name of a local gang or something. Don't tell the Trollz about his. Where I went to junior high and high school there was a gang that had the initials S.K.A. so when ever people would have ska items (related to the music) people would think they were in that gang. I'm sad "back story" is a banned word I've been using it since the late 90s/early 2000s. :( I'd better stop saying "Google myself" it just sounds wrong. "I'm just sayin'" has been worn out since Shane Helms was overusing it on WWE programming. If "A-ha moment" is banned then why isn't the phrase "take on me"?

I got some hair clips from my grandma. At least it wasn't some small clothes. I think it better when she gives me something that doesn't have a size like some kind of trinket or knick knack. I liked the way they look. They look very 90s. I wasn't sure what to do with them until I started reading an old fashion magazine; a February issue. I thought I could wear the clips for Valentine's Day. They have hearts on them. I tweeted about my gift "Didn't get small clothes from grandma. I got some hairclips. At least they fit."

My prediction was partially correct my dad got a 17 1/2 neck size shirt. He usually gets a 17 neither size fits him. He also got a jacket, but he said it fit him.

I'll be waiting to see what KCET will be showing tomorrow.

Hello to my new follower.

Maneki Neko/Reunion Yet?

I want a lucky charm for my phone. I'm thinking about getting a maneki neko or a beckoning cat. I need all the help/luck I can get. Western stuff hasn't been working for me. (horseshoes, 4 leaf clover, and rabbit's foot) At first I was thinking a pig since pigs are lucky and that is my Chinese zodiac animal. Then I remembered pigs aren't so lucky to me.

Here is another blog I was planning on posting before the end of the year. Plus it ties in nicely into a pig zodiac reference.

Reunion Yet?

After thinking about that elementary school reunion in 2009 and that 2011 is nearing I thought somebody would have organized a reunion already; or at least made a page for it or something. Maybe I’m the one jumping the gun, and I don’t even want to go. Maybe somebody will set something up after the holidays. I have a strong feeling that the person who organized the elementary school reunion will organize this one. They are born under the sign of the pig, and pigs are good organizers.
Check back for my end of the year thoughts blog and possibly a free day blog.

Lofty Keyboard

I think and hope my headache over the old phone I had for about 4 days is over. I got into an argument over the phone with one of the customer service people they were telling me I didn't know which model my old phone was. I know that. They also kept accusing me of having a forged serial number. (which I didn't) I had to transfer the service to my old phone. I didn't want to be without a phone even if it was only for a few hours.

I've been obsessing about the $300 a year for 4 days. It was pretty much all I was thinking about. The only thing I like about that broken Loft was the keyboard. Too bad it put spaces between the letters when I would try and type in a web address.

Even though my new phone isn't fancy or has a keyboard. (That was one of the main reasons why I wanted the Loft)But it does have a place to stick charms in it. I'm off to look for some new charms.

KCET is altering their subchannels after their split with PBS. Here is a sample of the lineup.
What does that mean? Which Anne of Green Gables will be shown? The anime, the cartoon (that was shown on KCET about 7 years ago), or the live action series. Most of those shows I don't like. Come on show some TV Ontario and AIT shows.

Last Year's Mattress

I calculated how much it will cost if I keep that phone. They charge me $25 per month which means 4 months = $100 and 4x3=12 which = $300! I was paying about $80 a year with my old phone. It’s still broken even with the solution they gave me didn’t work. I got a text at about 3AM telling me what to do. I’m so tempted to switch my service back to the old phone even if that one is broken, and has been since February.

It’s pretty much confirmed I’m getting a free day on Friday! Yay! Reenactment scenes here I come! What about reenacting a scene from the Glee episode “Mattress”? After I watched it I got an idea. I will reenact a Glee scene along with scenes from the videos "Sex is not the Enemy" by Garbage and "Underneath it All" by No Doubt.
I’d better plan a menu. I’m thinking strong sweet tea and a toasted cheese sandwich! I better draw inspiration from my last free day. Wagers on what kind of gift I get from my grandma. I'm going with small shoes. For my dad I'll say a tiny jacket or a shirt that is 17 in the neck size.

No Doubt was good on the Kennedy Center honors. What was Gwen wearing as a bottom? It looked like koulots or pantaloons

Does anybody think it’s too early for Valentine’s Day and Easter merchandise to be out already? I’ll accept Super Bowl. That really upsets me. I hate when you want to buy something at a store and they don’t have it, and the item is suppose to be in season. Like when it’s summer and you want a bathing suit, but you can’t get one because the store is already stocking fall clothes. I hate having to buy things before the season.
I don’t like to shop at after Christmas sales because the clothes and shoes are “last year”. I use to make that mistake when I was younger.

Tweet Your Heart Out

There is a problem with my phone when I try and type a web address it puts spaces between the letters and can't get to the site. I have to pay more now. The plan I had is not available with this phone. At least I get unlimited web, so I can "tweet my heart out". IDK I thought that was a funny phrase.

The football game getting postponed messed up my tv watching and internet schedule. I'm surprised that NBC decided to carry the game on Tuesday and not give it to ESPN. I heard NBC is getting good ratings with football.

I might get a free day soon. ^0^ I'm making plans in case I do. I think I'll reenact scenes from music videos in my room. I think I'll reenact "Sex is not the Enemy" or maybe "Underneath it All".

I'm sad about the passing of Teena Marie. I'm not trying to make myself into a Teena Marie fan. I only know 2 of her songs; "Lovergirl" and "Behind the Groove". I really like "Lovergirl". I think I mentioned it in a blog once. Maybe it was one of my old myspace blogs? I'll need to look.

Sticky Christmas

I got another strange text message from the same number who sent me one last year. This year the message said "Happy Christmas!" last year it said "Happy Christmas! Be careful. Keep on Keeping On."

I got a new phone and I've been busy cleaning out my old one. I want to make sure I don't erase anything important. Too bad the new one doesn't have a place to put a charm on it. Oh well. The phone was a replacement phone. I'm gonna be super careful with this phone. I'm even buying a case for it.

I got a new MP3 player too which was also a replacement. Added "Pretty Horses" and "Lighten Up" onto this one. I think it could use some 90s R&B. I'm thinking "Thank You" or "End of the Road" by Boyz II Men.

The worst part was my dad spilled grape juice all over me. Luckily it was the white one, but I was sticky all day even after I washed off. Somehow like always he brings it back to back to me. It was my fault he spilled it. That was it! I decided to drink water for the rest of the day. It's not as sticky.

New Old TV Shows

Tribute to the Troops was good, but it could have used more wrestling. There were only 2 matches. There were too many musical performances. It's a good show to have.

I was watching those old Antenna TV preview shows. Watching the original version of Gidget and The Monkees made me remember back in the 80s when the "New" versions of those shows came out. The New Gidget, The New Monkees, and The Munsters Today. The Antenna TV logo looks like old one KTLA use to have a long time ago. I don't remember seeing it on tv. It was before my time. I only remember the golden 5 logo, and anything after that.

Watching Gidget also made me think about Gidget from Eureka Seven. She was the one who told Eureka to wear makeup. Which did didn't wear very well; Talho told Eureka she didn't need to wear so much because she is young. That is from my favorite episode "Fantasia".

Ne is the new villain in Survivor lore. It's a good thing they cleared up about quitters who quit around the time the jury is formed. If I ran the show this is what I would have done. Ne and Purple Kelly would not have been in the jury I would have put Yve and Jill instead they were voted out before Alina who was the first member of the jury. Fabio was the winner like I predicted. He was a sleeper. Sash didn't get any votes. Chase is still an idiot. Jane won the fan votes. Is it me or does that hair make him look like Bieber?
I noticed that KCET is also showing H.R Pufnstuf and Lidsville. This is good for the gen-xers who are nostalgic for that. I'll watch it out of curiosity. I think that KTLA is going to show the Rose Parade on all 3 of their channels. Really!?

I'm just Thinkin' about Possums

Correction: there are a few corrections to this blog. It was the '08 semester.

The possum is back! I thought heard strange noises a few days ago, but I didn't want to say anything. At first I thought it was cats fighting. I decided to try and turn around my schedule, so I will be up when the possum is up. The possum's thrashing and hissing won't bother me as much if I'm awake.

The ads KTLA is running for Antenna TV look very similar to the promos they had for their retro tv marathon in 2007. ThisTV is going to be bitstarved. I'm looking forward to watching blurry episodes of Mister Ed and Heathcliff (the ones I don't have on DVD) After watching all those episodes of Mister Ed I recognized Larry Keating in the Burns and Allen show. George Burns was involved in Mister Ed and even guest starred in an episode.

I can't believe my mom blabbed about me thinking about going to school. Me thinking about something is not me actually doing it. My dad can't distinguish the difference. It could be like the spring semesters '08 and '10 all over again! Doesn't matter anyway I can't do anything until next year.

Miscellaneous blog #39

Too bad I still don't get KVCR. I wish they would have a more powerful transmitter that would really boost their viewership since KCET is gone soon. Most of what I watch on PBS is kid's shows anyway.

Antenna TV is going to be showing some preview programming on KTLA. I had no idea what the shows "Circus Boy", "The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok" and "The Iron Horse" were I had to look them up. My dad wants to watch Rin Tin Tin, but that is going to be shown on the 26th. The thing that frustrates me is that zap2it's listings for KTLA 5.2 just say"Antenna TV coming soon" they didn't even bother adding 5.3 which is now ThisTV to their listings.

I helped my mom make some pumpkin bread and cookies and they didn't come out so well. The sprinkles fell off the cookies. The cranberries and almonds stayed on the top of the loaf. At least they didn't sink to the bottom.

Fabio (a Survivor realted blog )

I think Fabio will be the sleeper winner like Sandra was last season. He's not as dumb as people make him out to be. Chase is dumber. I would have figured Ne and Brenda to make it a little further. Fabio was the first one to say to vote out Ne after she hid the food. I didn't think Jane was going to make it that far. A lot of contestants said she was a threat. Especially with her story. That's why the other Kelly (not purple) was eliminated before the jury was formed. Could you imagine if Kelly and Jane had made it to the final 2.

When ever they say Fabio on the show it makes me think of this scene from the Eek the cat cartoon when he meets Fabio.

Nonstop cakes

I really like that game Purble Place. Is it really for preschoolers? I like that cake making game it reminds me of Cake Mania.

When is that California Nonstop channel going to come out? I’m so sick of the same old news raw stories from like July. How many times do I have to hear some guy talk about a robot keychain? Or see that handicap parking permit violation story?

Too bad KCET isn’t showing old TVOntario shows like Today’s Special, Take a Look and Here’s How. I really wish they would have shown some old AIT shows or those Animal Families films.

Quality Item

The Dollar Tree is selling knockoff as seen on tv products. I bought a ped egg type thing (that is a picture of the real one). I hoped it would fair better than the $1 DS screen cleaner I bought from a vending machine. The DS screen cleaner screamed quality item. I felt I was not taking a chance since it was a dollar item.

When I tried it the thing seemed to work well. I wouldn't say $10 well but way more than $1. Somewhere between $2.50 and $5.

They also have knockoff Wonder Hangers, Perfect Fit Button, Aqua Globes, Bumpits, and Smooth Away that I can remember.

MVC; Most Valuable Customer

My dad was mad when he went to the Target and there was nobody in the electronics department. He is so stupid what does he think he is? A MVC? Most Valuable Customer? Places are understaffed, and I don't expect anybody to be anywhere in the store. Maybe it added to my frustration that I had recently read an article about that. Later when we are checking out he complain to the cashier about this. Why did he complain to the cashier? What's he going to do about it? Not getting help at stores is so prevalent I figure there will be nobody to help me when I need it EVER! I figure I have to do all the legwork even though they are getting paid for it. Now if somebody comes to help me I'm shocked and tell them that I don't need help.

I told my dad I didn't want to go see what happened to where I used to live. I figured I'd just use Google earth or something like when I cheated on that map project for my memoir class. It's not like he listens to me anyway. There are apartments where I use to live. I wonder what happened to the blackberry bush? It's probably gone too like the big pine tree is. I wonder where the possums went to live?

What I want for Christmas is Brittnay Pierce caliber. I don't want anybody to walk who can't, but I want some pretty "impossible" things.

People are thinking about (American) football games that had to be moved because of something like what happened to the Vikings? Why did nobody mention the Chargers game that was moved to Arizona because of the wildfires back in 2003?

KCET's non PBS schedule looks abysmal. I give them 5 years tops on the air. I'm being generous with that number. I will miss watching Arthur at 2:30 PM. But they are showing Prime Suspect which may help me in a writing class provided I get the same teacher and he uses the same material. Spoiler: It was George. I wrote about Prime Suspect on my old blog. I'll go and post those in the archives. Prime Suspect is referred to as a "movie". The blog doesn't mention that I also complied a list of my favorite fictional penguins. For children's programming they are going to show The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss. I didn't see it when it was on Nickelodeon. I remember reading an article about the show in a magazine. I thought it ran for more than 2 seasons. I wonder if KCET will keep their Orange sub-channel?

Christmas for Sluts

The alternate title for this was Have Yourself a Slutty Little Christmas.

I was looking at these holiday themed outfits. I found the Gingerbread one after I posted that blog about finding the Watermelon Girl and Peppermint Girl outfits. Somebody on a website pointed out that the cookie on the apron is over the crotch. @.@

This Candy Cane costume isn’t so bad.
This Candy cane cutie costume doesn’t seem very candy striped to me. I think it should be called “Holly” something like Holly babe.
Santa’s Lil Ho Ho Ho. It’s um… I found that costume by accident. I typed in “Santa‘s ho costume” and that came up.
There is always the Naughty Elf costume.

Back in Brown

Shopping with my dad wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. On a pain scale I would say bike crashing into a tree, but I can walk away from it semi-limping. I wanted it to be more like a bandage getting ripped off my skin.

Why do all the headphones have to have something on them? Where are the plain ones? Why do they have to say "Rawwwr" or have a flag on the side? It's so hard for me to find something. Most of the stores stock is earbuds anyway.

There was nothing partially interesting at the mall. Hot Topic still doesn't sell the kind of junky jewelry I want. It was funny to see a Rihanna shirt for sale in there near a Glee CD. IDK those items seem a little out of place there.

The holiday Glee episode was good. It was totally in character for Rachel to wear tacky winter sweaters. The Cheerios socks were cute. I saw Santa today too; his workshop was near the Hickory Farms kiosk. I wasn't there for Santa I was looking for cheese. I thought they were going to sing more songs from Christmas specials. The misfit toys one fit well. When I was a kid I thought I needed to live on that island, and it made me think about mistreating my toys. I was singing along with them. *whispers* sometimes I like to sing along with the show softly if I know the song. But where was the roast beast? If Mr. Shue was a character from Rudolph he would be Hermy because they are noted for their hair.

It reminded me of my dead friend when I gave her a Christmas card that I drew a picture of Sailor Moon on for her. I think that year we also had to write about what we wanted for Christmas in French class. I wanted a Sakura doll. Sakura from Cardcaptors.

I'm back to being a brunette. *yawn!* I thought the dye I got was in my color family, but I don't think it is. Oh well it has gold undertones which work with my hair.

I was thinking about the banned word list. I know it won't come out until the end of the month, but I'm wondering which words I CAN'T use next year and make a note not to. My mom thinks I'm silly because I follow the list. I don't even have any predictions on which words I think will be on there.

Monday, December 6, 2010

I'm dreading going shopping with my dad! After the computer purchasing agony/saga.

I'm really enjoying this J-drama Bad Boy Good Girl. It's really funny. I'd recommend my former friend to watch it. This J-drama reminds me of her. I didn’t get into J-dramas until after I started college. The first one I watched was Kokoro. I use to have an early class, and I would get ready for school and watch it. I also watched Teppan Girl Akane and Chiritotechin (Life is like a Comedy).
I'd also recommend Chiritotechin to her. She is like Junko. I watched all those series with E-subs (English subtitles)

Fox's (American Country Awards) ACA they are jumping on the country band wagon by introducing this award show. Is this to fill the void that the Billboard awards left?

Why don't I have a count down for KCET and Antenna TV?

I know it's holiday time and such, but I have some more slutty costume ideas:
Slutty Dot Warner
Slutty Babs Bunny
Slutty airasol can
Slutty easy cheese

Cookies and Candy

Chocolate covered Cordial blueberries
These are tarter than the cherries. After you eat a few they become an acquired taste.

Candy cane Oreos
My dad bought these to try. He thought they were just Oreos with colored frosting. They are not they have crushed up candy cane pieces in the frosting. I thought they were really gross. He couldn't taste the peppermint flavor, and it's really strong. I've said before he has no taste.

Sunday, November 28, 2010

I want to get this out before Cyber Monday. It gets really clogged. Wait wasn't that a PPV from the WWE?

I'll just say this goodbye.

No Pies for Me

The parade wasn't as good as the one from last year. I still enjoy the pikachu balloon and the Smurf balloon and float. The float has a mushroom house on it. Can you believe pikachu has been in the parade for 10 years? It's been in the parade since 2001. I remember I wrote about the parade for English class that year in high school. I think we had to write a Thanksgiving essay.

Was it me of was Jimmy Fallon's lip syncing a little "off"? It wasn't as bad as those Barbie Princess and the Pauper actors one year.

Now since Nickelodeon and Rainbow (the company that produces Winx Club) teamed up I'm hoping I will see an "appearance" by them next year. It will probably just be some girls in wigs or something. It would be fun just to see them.

I tried to start a new tradition of wagering on the dog show, but my family would have nothing of it. I broke it down like this the person could wager on either the group or an individual breed. The thing that upset me is that for the past 2 years the toy group has been the last one up.

I ended up over eating this year. I mostly ate meat and cornbread.

I didn't eat pie this year. I don't like pie crust and I usually discard the crust anyway. I requested pumpkin custard instead. It's like pumpkin pie, but there is no crust.

You know what bothers me it's when they show tv commercials for Black Friday deals at 1AM on black Friday wouldn't it be too late to get there? I would like to hit the Mega-mart 12 minute sale. That $39 ipad is a great deal!

It's been the 1st time since I've stopped watching Letterman on Thanksgiving. The writers strike doesn't count.

Shallot Pizza

I ate a shallot that thing had a lot of bite. Maybe I should have sauteed it. My cooking knowledge is limited. I baked it on a pizza raw. Should I have cooked it before putting it on the pizza? It had a lot of bite to it. I thought shallots were mild.

My mom put some in her steoop. This is not a misspelled word. Her stews are thin like soup. I think they are a combination of both. Anyway the one she cooked wasn't so harsh.

This is not a blog entry about Glee, but i just want to say a few things about the most recient episode. I loved Sue tracksuit dress I totally want one of those! I'd get a few to wear to formal events. Ins't marrying your self been done a few times before? Didn't Rodman do that back in the 90s?

Almost Everything For Sale!

You know how people are always doing something gimmicky to get something like tattooing themselves with a company logo or something like that. I'm totally up for something big and gimmicky. If stuff is not it won't get noticed.

I have a great idea. I will sell almost all my stuff to get free internet for life. No crappy connections either. It also has to be from a reputable company. Things I would not sell would be things like photos, yearbooks, diaries, some of my clothes, personal items, grooming items, my computer monitor, my cell phone, homemade DVDs and videos (most people don't use videos anymore anyway), and my intellectual property.

Ricockulously Good Cranberry Sauce

I was a big fan of Loveline as a teenager. I listened to it religiously from 1996-2001. Those were the Carolla years. Every year around Thanksgiving Adam would give out his cranberry sauce recipe. As a kid I hated canned cranberry sauce. I didn't even like the jellied kind. Kids are sometimes fooled by that, and think it's some kind of gelatin dessert or something. After years of listening to the show I finally persuaded my mom to make some. I forget which year though. I love it! I've turned my family onto it too. Now they make their own sauce. Thanks Adam aka Ace Rockolla. :P

The recipe can be found here.

Sexy Appliance

I was thinking about dressing as an appliance for Halloween. They are somewhat unique. Too bad a lot of them are bulky. I'm not going to be a sexy appliance.

Here are some sexy costume ideas for other people
Sexy Slim Goodbody costume
Sexy Rose Petal from Rose Petal Place
Talho from Eureka Seven when she wore that outfit with the short skirt and the halter top.

Psychic Contact

That place I mentioned before has some HR problems. I called this place on the 9th of November to see if there was a new recording, and it was the same old one from September. I called again today and there was a new recording for the 10th of November. When the hell do they update those Fucking things?! What if you heard the announcement on that day and needed to make plans or something. I'm not going to call that place every single fucking day! I will not name the company in case I do get a job there. LOL LOL LOL! ROTFL! XD

Why do people act like the show Skating with the Stars is a new concept? Fox did it 4 years ago with Skating with Celebrities. I remember it took Arrested Development's old time slot, and they referenced it on AD.

Fashionable, Musical and Cheating to Win

I can't believe it's been 5 years since Eddie Guerrero died. Here is a blog from my archives blog about it.

I wanted to get a job at a few fashion stores until my mom brought me back to reality. I don't dress trendy anymore. I think I really haven't since circa 2003. I thought about trying to make a quirky outfit or altering something I already have. Then I realized that I didn't even have that. My hair is still a mess and not all that trendy. A lot of stores make you wear the clothes that they sell there. I heard some of those clothing stores treat you badly, but I told myself I'm not going to make assumptions anymore. It doesn't matter. I think it would be the right "fit" for me. (Really bad pun, sorry)

I was thinking about making a Spam cruise Halloween costume for next year, but would anybody remember it by then? Maybe I could dress as Spam and say I was from the cruise. For the past few years I wanted a "musical" Halloween costume which is nothing more than me in some costume with an MP3 player and some external speakers hidden somewhere in my costume. If I dressed as Spam I would play the Save Ferris song called "Spam".

KCET Forecast

The proposed programming for KCET once it goes independent looks bad. A few of those programs can be seen on UTB. When they show their NHK feed. Maybe they'll show Sense of Japan and Nihongo Quick Lesson at a decent time. Maybe they will show some anime or Japanese programs UTB and FCI don't show.

Maybe they'll show this movie I saw on the station many years ago about a boy who helps a whale get to heaven. It was a foreign film.

I don't want to be bombarded with constant Huell Howser programming. It gives my dad ideas about where he wants to go. He has become too influenced by the tv. I still wonder what they will show for children's programming? I guess they can still show Big Green Rabbit. America's Test Kitchen. for cooking programming.

Besides me complaining about KCET proposed schedule. I tried to get a phone soliciting job today like I predicted they wanted experience as usual. How hard is it to sell pest control over the phone?

It was so funny in The Office when Phyllis asked Kelly which character in Glee is named Glee. It sounds like something one of my parents would say. Like when my dad would pester me during The OC and constantly ask who every character was.

First Season Fresh

In Glee Rachel's sweater with the poodle was so cute. The whole episode was ok I guess. That guy kissing Kurt made me gasp. Either that or my mouth was gaping open. The problem I'm having with the second season of the show is that a lot of themes seem to be rehashed. I guess the first season of any show is always the freshest. I had the same problem with Friends and The OC.

I did not enjoy that "Stop in the Name of Love"/ "Free Your Mind" mash up. Why does there have to be so many mashups on the show? "Free Your Mind" could have held it's own. Hearing that song makes me feel like I'm in 3rd grade again and dressing horribly.

Halloween Memoirs

I was inspired by my memoir class to write a book of Halloween memoirs. I turned in a Halloween story for class. The only reason I did was because it was the only story I had finished at the time. The due date crept up on me. I wrote about Halloween 1994. I didn't want to write too many Halloween stories and bore everybody by writing about the same topic. I didn't want to be known as the person who wrote all those Halloween stories or something like that. This was a concern of mine during that semester.

Jump off a Bridge

I want to make a correction from my last blog. In not thinking for myself I mean going along with the group practically no matter what. It's like that "jump off a bridge" statement. Hell yeah I would if everybody else was.

I also need to hold my tongue. It's gotten me in too much trouble.

Friday, November 5, 2010


I've come to the conclusion that thinking for myself has gotten me into a lot of trouble, so I decided I'm not going to anymore. It will make things so much simpler. I hate when people tell you to think for yourself just so you can listen to them.

I'm happy the McRib is back!
I haven't had one since I went to the Ferguson taping last year.

How funny was The Office? I sounded like Michael when he wanted to go to Mexico to go help build a school. Remember how Letterman got me all riled up about not doing my part and such? (Letterman is so out of touch) Andy just went along to impress Erin. It reminded me of when I wanted to do volunteer work because my cousin was doing it. Now I want to volunteer to build my resume.

Here are some costume ideas I have for next Halloween:
Beef Jerky (not a bag, but an actual piece)
A McRib sandwich (perhaps I can use upholstery foam)
Lydia from the Beetlejuice cartoon
Tickled Pink from Rainbow Brite (80s)
Some kind of box costume
Shirley from the "Bleed Like Me" video (I'd need to find a good dress though) I can always pass it off as a nurse costume for people who don't know.

This year I wanted to have some kind of meat themed costume, but I shied away from it after Lady Gaga wore that meat dress. I didn't want people to think I was copying her or something.

After all these years I've never dressed as an object for Halloween like a cell phone, or grandfather clock. I also have not dressed as food; ever. I have only been characters, celebrities careers, or monsters.

I think I'll add having a really elaborate homemade Halloween costume to my bucket list.

Even though I didn't dress as Rachel Berry for Halloween I'm sort of glad. No disrespect to Lea Michele or the Gleeks. Then I would not have been able to scare people. I think people would not have gotten my costume. Although me singing is scary. I could have broke into spontaneous song singing "Run Joey Run".

I was also planning an oil spill costume. I was going to make it out of a brown unused trash bag. I was going to print out the BP logo and a picture of the oil cam. I was going to make my face look dirty like it was smeared with oil.

I decided to Conanize my pikachu. Doesn't it look funny? That is it's costume. I took the pic while I was just messing around in my room. I posed pikachu next to a dog. It sort of looks like Triumph. For me to poop on! I didn't submit it into the contest.

Can’t Read my Skull Face

I dressed as a grim reaper this year. At first I wanted a hip and relevant costume. I really wanted to dress as the oil spill, but I decided to be the grim reaper because I had never dressed as the grim reaper before. I recycled an old graduation gown. The best part was I got to wear a mask. I hadn't worn a mask for Halloween in years. I like the anonymity. I liked that the costume was recognizable. I've had way too many ambiguous costumes over the years. I was working on a scary voice, but it sounded a lot like Triumph the Insult Comic dog.

I was hoping to scare some people in Lady Gaga costumes. I came up with some lines for them specifically.

"Your meat dress looks delicious!" and "That is a delicious meat dress!" were reserved for meat related costumes.

"Can’t read my skull face" was a generic line for people in Lady Gaga costumes.

It was disappointing I thought I would see more people dressed as Lady Gaga I only saw 2 girls. I used the "Can't read my skull face" on one of them, but she didn't get it. :(

I had some other lines for some hip and relevant costumes, but nobody else came dressed as something hip and relevant.

Now I have about a whole year to come up with a Halloween costume. I haven't decided on anything yet, but I do have some ideas..

Here are some Pumpkin Light commercial screen caps circa 1988 to enjoy! I always wanted my parents to buy me one, but they never did. :( It was marketed by Joseph Enterprises the same company who makes Chia Pets.

Rejected Costume Ideas

Here are some more costume ideas I rejected this year. The ideas were either too time consuming, expensive, or just lame.
Sweet from Angel’s Friends (I didn‘t want to wear a tube top)
Kabale from Angel’s Friends (felt nobody would get it and think I was just dressed as a devil)
Gadget Hackwrench
Harley Quinn
Jolly a pixie from the Winx Club
Tickled Pink from Rainbow Brite (80s version)
Liz from Eat Pray Love (have a bandaged knee and have a sign that says “Donations for Wayan”)
Bong-Soon from Love Truly/Really Really Like You (thought the idea was kind of racist)
A candy house like the one from Hansel and Gretel
A 1990s person (I‘d wear my wide legged pants and a shirt. I’d have my dark roots which was the style at the time [I sound like Grandpa Simpson] and talk about 90s music and events incessantly)
A Pillow Pet (not sure how I would make that one)
The 1991 version of Strawberry Shortcake
Pearlie (I didn‘t have a long blond wig)
Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl (I was just going to wear a hair band with a bow on it)
D.W. from Arthur
A butterfly

Wuthering Halloween

If I see anybody in a meat dress real or fake I'm going to say their costume is "delicious".

My mom thinks I take Halloween too seriously. I like to take things into consideration. Cameras are everywhere! I don't want to sound paranoid. I just don't want to end up on the "horribly bad costume" website or something.

I've been working on getting into character for my costume. What good is it if you are not "in character" for your costume? I was thinking bout doing a voice for it, but I'm not sure. Remember fully commit to your costume even if it is a bad one.

I was thinking about Halloween 11 years ago that was the year I wore that ambiguous costume. That year Halloween happened to fall on a Sunday. I liked the costume so much I wore it to school on the Friday before Halloween. I didn’t go out on that Sunday because I had to finish reading Wuthering Heights for a book report for English class. I handed out candy while I was reading the book. I dressed up my stuffed pikachu and I put it by the door. I was hoping somebody would notice it. Some of my friends came to the door trick or treating they wanted me to come with them. I had to decline because I needed to finish reading the book. I regretted not going. Another kid from school noticed my dressed up pikachu. I think he was the only person. That was the year I gave extra candy to kids dressed as pikachu. That's when my "extra for pikachu" policy kicked in.

In the book report I wrote to the teacher that I missed Halloween to finish reading the book. I don't remember what grade I got on it, but it wasn't a bad grade like an "F" or "D".

When Halloween fell on a Sunday back in 2004. It was fun to watch the football games with all the fans dressed up. Except the Raider fans because it’s always Halloween for them. LOL! :P

Feelin' Giddy

I thought I should incorporate something Halloween related into this blog. Since Halloween is in 3 days. I'll spend the next few days blogging about Halloween. Good costumes, bad costumes, ambiguous costumes, arbitrary costumes, stupid costumes, WTF costumes, and sexy/slutty costumes.

I was going to write about this yesterday, but I already wrote that blog about the Disney costumes. I want this entry to come full circle, oops wrong band! :0

Shirley confirmed Garbage is recording a new album. That would not be the best news of the year that would be me getting a job. (Sorry to sound self centered here. Bad me!) I'll get giddy and swoon over it though. I'm gonna try and look harder for volunteer work.

I'm not dressing as Shirley this year. My costume last year wasn't that good; I put it together at the last minute, but my hair looked awesome. That was the best part of my costume. Last year I really wanted to dress as the twitter bird, but I got sick and couldn't construct the costume. I'm not dressing as the twitter bird this year either. As of writing this entry I feel healthy.

I think I'll polish my nails tomorrow. Most likely black; although the color of nail polish I wear has no influence on my costume. Here are some more clues about my Halloween costume this year. I'm not dressing as a celebrity or some kind of pun.

Sexy Disney

Look at these sexy Disney and Disney inspired costumes. I don’t remember  

Pinocchio or  

Peter Pan being so sexy.  

This sexy Daisy costume looks nothing like her. What’s next sexy Webby, Mrs. Beakley, Magica?
I know there are sexy knockoff Minnie Mouse costumes. They have names like
Mini Mouse or Pinup Mouse. This geisha mouse costume is too ambiguous and arbitrary for me.  
I really don’t get this sexy knockoff Nemo costume. It doesn’t even look like a fish. Who knew Nemo could be sexy?

Disney has some untapped sexy mouse costume ideas. What about Bianca from the Rescuers? All she wears is a purple fur hat and a purple fur wrap. Real sexy! Don’t wear a bottom. Or maybe some white hot pants or something. Gadget from the Rescue Rangers could be sexy too. Even though the Rangerphiles (fans of the show) don’t like to see erotic pictures of Gadget. It was a children's cartoon after all. I guess the costume could be made sexier by having somebody wear a tight purple jumpsuit. You could always be Gadget’s spy alter ego. You could always be Gadget’s Hawiian look-a-like Lawhinie. (that is the correct spelling of her name.)

Halloween is about Fear

I was thinking about Halloween during my high school years I know I wrote about people not being into group costumes. I want to make a correction. When I looked over my old diaries I wrote that in 10th grade that cliques were dressed as the same thing like witches, hula girls or French maids. But that was the only instance I ever wrote about it.

I'm not very familiar with Rocky Horror, so I guess it was ok. I loved the Sue costume Becky wore. I also liked the part about Sue talking about Halloween being about fear. "You know, Halloween is fast approaching. The day when parents encourage little boys to dress like little girls and little girls to dress like whores and go door to door brow-beating hard working Americans into giving them free food. Well you know what, western Ohio? We've lost the true meaning of Halloween: fear. Halloween is that magical day of the year when a child is told their grandma is a demon who's been feeding them rat casserole with a crunch garnish of their own scabs. Children must know fear; without it they'll try Frenching a grizzly bear and will consider living in Florida" I agree with the whore part.

The only problem is that now all the Gleeks will want Rocky Horror costumes. Too bad they would only have a few days to find/make them. I heard Magenta is one of the easiest to make.
Didn't Drew Carey do a Rocky Horror episode of The Drew Carey Show?

I'm also going to promote by blujay site/store. There is not much there yet. I'll mostly be selling paper goods and toys.

Group Costume Ideas

I have a great idea for people who want a group costume and are fans of Conan O'Brien. Dress as Conan and different people from his show. Here are some suggestions:

Bernard (extra points if you have a fake recliner or talk about anime or sic fi stuff)
The Masturbating Bear (and the scientists that probe him)
La Bamba
Year 2000/3000
The "Ass" Stamp

I have another group idea; dress as Gwen Stefani. I've seen people do Madonna and Britney Spears, but I've never seen Gwen done before. The group could consist of:

Pre-"Tragic Kingdom" Gwen wear cheerleader outfits or overalls. "Trapped in a Box" would also work or even a conductor uniform.
"Tragic Kingdom" Gwen wear crop tops and bondage pants or any outfit she wore in a video from that era
"Return of Saturn" Gwen have pink hair! Skirt pants, "X" tanktops and lots of eyeliner. or any video from that era
"Rocksteady" Gwen long blond hair, "Rock" and "Steady" rings. Show your underwear band. For a sexy costume I recommend the "Underneath it All" video
"L.A.M.B." Gwen wear an Alice in Wonderland dress or a majorette uniform
"The Sweet Escape" Gwen wear something from the "Wind it Up" video
You could also dress as Gwen from their latest tour with a white shirt and black pants. Or dress as singles collection Gwen. Or even Gwen from the "It's My Life" video. Or even "Let Me Blow Ya Mind" or "Southside". (bonus points if you lick somebody's bald head.)

Halloween Costume Help!

I like going on Yahoo Answers helping people come up with costumes. Especially the really desperate ones. The people who need a costume like that day or something. I think it's funny when people say "help me make a costume with the things in my house". I don't know what is in their house anyway. I think it's more help if the person has idea of some item they want to work with like a blue wig or a red mini dress.

The people who want to dress up, but have it look like they are not wearing a costume. They say it also has to be identifiable.

They want something that matches their friend or something. I didn't realize it was so important to dress like your friends for Halloween. I don’t remember having to match my friends’ Halloween costume. I think I never did. Is this a new thing? When I was in high school 10 years ago nobody really did that. Then again I'm not into matching costumes. If you want to dress as salad and your friend wants to be Marge Simpson. I'm cool with that. Even unmatched couples. If a girl dresses as Princess Jasmine why does the guy automatically have to be Aladdin? Why can't he be a beer mug or something or not wear a costume at all?

My other favorite thing to read is "no boring things like a pumpkin, witch, pirate or a bunny". Or "something creative". That really narrows down the options.

It's really hard to help these people but I love reading the questions they ask.

Look all you Want Just Don't Touch the Hair!

Here are some shoes and a dress I got for my Stella doll. She is a spoiled doll.

I wanted the Flora shoes because I thought they would look good for a 90s look I was designing for her. I think those shoes would look good with a long skirt. The shoes really match the pink skirt she is wearing.
The green Layla boots look good with this Barbie Snap n Play skirt. It makes Stella look a little high wasted. The white soles look good with the white accents on the skirt.
The red dress and boots are a set. I think they look good on her. I thought the dress would look good on a Musa doll. But I don't have one. The gold accents go nicely with Stella's blond hair.
I'm kinda disappointed since my 2nd choice for an volunteer opportunity. I think it's for the better since I think it wasn't for me anyway. I really need an opportunity. It looks great on a resume! I hope the animal shelter still has openings.

Sexy Disguise

I didn't think the Transformers could be sexy. I always thought they were more "boxy". It's a good "disguise".

I wonder what is next? Sexy Voltron? Sexy Holly Hobbie (70s version)?
I was also thinking about how the "strawberry girl" type costumes could be expanded. I already mentioned "orange girl" and "lime girl". Then that got me thinking what about a "banana girl" or a "bubble gum girl"? I didn't manage to find either, but I did find Peppermint Girl and Watermelon Girl. Here are some other names I put in: "puddin' girl", "cookie girl", "cinnamon girl" (no relation to the song), "muffin girl", "cupcake girl", "peach girl" (no relation to the anime), "berry girl", "grape girl", "gumdrop girl", and "taffy girl".

Look at this "strawberry cupcake" costume I found. UGLY!
