Is it just me?

This is the first of probably many "is it just me" posts however this one is only going to be about the MTV movie awards so if you didn't watch them this will probably be pretty boring!! 

Ok so like I said in my previous post about Twitter (side note: thanks to everyone who's following me!!) I LOVE the MTV movie awards...or at least I used to. Tonight I found to be pretty bad however I want to say it's because the "quality" of the show has totally gone downhill and not the fact that I'm probably getting too old for this! Some random thoughts about the show
- Miley Cyrus' speech made my ears bleed
- ditto goes for whenever Kristen Stewart came up to speak 
- although I can't deny that Rob Pattinson is effing hot the more I see him IRL (and not as Edward) he always kinda skeeves me out....and I haven't determined if it's a good or bad way
- I'm slightly terrified that that weird guy in the gold suit with the popcorn head that escorted people off the stage is going to attack me in my room tonight
- I don't care how stupid his line's were, Andy Samberg always made me laugh esp his "trailer" for New Moon
- although I still like the books...I'm starting to get a little sick of Twilight and wished that Slumdog Millionaire won more awards
- wearing Converses with a dress does not make you makes you look like you have no fashion sense (I'm looking at you Kristen Stewart)
- can't WAIT for Bruno to come out...looks so funny!!

Off to bed to get ready for my first day!

PS- Just found out that my second cousin (I have a really small family so we're all really close) just got deployed for his second tour in thoughts/prayers go out to him and his family

Tweet Tweet!

So as I'm sure you can tell by the title of this post (and through the neat little section on my sidebar)  I'm finally on Twitter! I needed to get an account set up for my internship this summer (which starts tomorrow...gulp) so while I was filling everything out I thought that I would create a "fun" non-work account too! If you can't get enough of me through blogging and want to know more about my boring life (which I'm sure all of you do hehe) feel free to follow along! Even if you don't really care about what I do feel free to follow too because I don't have any followers right now and would love to have the impression that I have some friends haha. Hope everyone had a great weekend! 

Ps-WOOHOO MTV movie awards are on tonight! Even though I'm probably like 5 years older than the target audience I still love this and the VMAs sometimes more than the "real" award shows

Please Don't Do This!

So if you have been reading my blog for a little while you know that I absolutely LOVE really bad, cheesy movies (see here for a post on one of my favs.) I don't know why I love them but I do, and they will always hold a special place in my heart. So imagine my surprise when I come home after a VERY long day working at the boutique to read that there might be a remake of the 80s movie Girls Just Want To Have Fun in the works. Hollywood: PLEASE DON'T DO THIS!!! For anyone who hasn't seen this movie please run right now to your nearest Blockbuster and rent this movie right now. Go on I'll wait. 

You're back? Ok good. For anyone who hasn't see this movie (and I'm really hoping that there's other crazy people out in blog world who love this movie as much as I do!) it starts a VERY your Sarah Jessica Parker, Helen Hunt, and Shannon Doherty, as well as a bunch of other random 80s stars who haven't done anything else, as teenagers in Chicago who enter a dance contest to get on DTV (a kinda dance version of MTV.) The movie is FILLED with horrible 80s clothes and dancing, and is possibly one of the best movies ever made. The soundtrack is absolutely amazing as well, and I am not ashamed to admit that I have it on cassette and would listen to it in my car, until my radio that had a cassette player with it broke :( 

Anyhoo, the point of this very long and pointless post is that Hollywood, I am BEGGING you to not ruin a perfectly amazing 80s movie . I'm sure you have much better (and ORIGINAL) ideas for movies...please use them. I apologize for this random post and I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! Off to see Angels and Demons tonight....hope it's good! 

ETA: Like others have already mentioned in the comments don't even get me started on the travesty that is the remake of Footloose. I love Chase Crawford as much as the next gal but please...he is NO Kevin Bacon and I am already refusing to see this movie.

Blah Blah Blah

Hello Hello!! Before I go into details about my very boring day (not that you really care haha) I would love to thank all of you that are sending prayers out to my neighbor's daughter. She has stabilized since Monday which is GREAT news, and I think they are doing many more tests today so we should find out more. Thanks to all for keeping her in your thoughts and prayers and I will keep you all updated! 
So like I mentioned my day today has been SOOO boring, and it's not helping that it is cold, rainy and overall completely gross today. I mean, why is it fifty degrees and almost June 1st??? Let's hope that summer weather comes soon(to the east coast at least... I am so jealous of you southern ladies!)  I haven't really done much since getting back from Ireland excepting working a little at a boutique where I worked last summer but it has been very nice to relax before starting my internship (gulp) on Monday. I have been catching up on tv shows I missed while I was away and just watched the GG/OTH finales yesterday...ahhhh the last scene of GG was AMAZING!!! I am so in love with Blair and Chuck and can't wait for next season!! 

I  did get some exciting news on Monday in that in three weeks I will be headed here:

That's right I'll be headed for Naples for my housemate S's bday! I am sooo excited and cannot wait! My housemates and I went there for spring break and it was so much fun. I am completely obsessed with Naples and can't wait to go back to the gorgeous beaches, pier, and very yummy restaurants!! 

Unfortunately right now after a steady diet of bread, cheese, desserts, and WAY too much beer in Ireland I feel (and look)  like this:

Sadly enough I don't think I've been to the gym since April so I really need to start getting in shape!! I have loved reading about how many of you are hitting the gym and getting ready for summer so I will make sure to keep you all updated on my progress!! 

One last thing did anyone see the ad for that new Bravo show NYC (or NY I don't remember) Prep which looks like a "real life" GG? I saw the ad while watching RHNJ this morning and I am SO excited for it. Between that, Army Wives, True Blood, Weeds, and Top Chef Masters I can't wait for summer shows to start! 

So I think that will be all for today...I know I promised pictures from Ireland but I have been WAY too lazy so look for them soon! Oh and does anyone know what happened to Bergdorf Blondes and Kappa Prep? I guess I missed Hopsy's notice about going private so Hopsy if you are reading this or if anyone could shoot her an email with my email ( I would LOVE to keep reading her blog!!

Prayer/Good Thoughts Request

Hi again. So my family just heard some horrible news today...our next door neighbors (who we are VERY close with) daughter had either a stroke or a heart attack last thursday and is in the ICU. Right now she is very critical and her doctors aren't sure if she will make it. She has had a heart condition since she was little (she's in her 40s now) and suffered a heart attack last month but was getting better and was expected to recover. I can't imagine what her family is going through right now so I would love if you would all send some good thoughts and prayers her way! 


Hello everyone!! It is so great to be back in blogland....even though I've only been away for a week I feel like I have missed out on SO much and judging by my Google Reader I have!! Well after a VERY long flight yesterday (thanks in part to the guy in 21C thinking that he could move his seat further back by smashing it against my legs) I am finally back from my trip! Although it is so nice to be home, I already miss Ireland so much and cannot wait to go back at some point in the future! It has easily become one of my favorite countries, and the people that we met were the friendliest around (one couple we met even invited us out to the house in the western part of the country when we come back and also wanted to set me up with one of their sons!) I probably will start posting pictures tomorrow as soon as I find my camera cord that has mysteriously disappeared in my VERY messy room!! 

So I think that's going to be it for the day... not really doing alot for Memorial Day except relaxing, unpacking, and catching up on Google Reader (I have 366 unread posts WOW!!) I hope everyone is having a very relaxing and lovely Memorial Day and much much more tomorrow!

Happy Birthday C!!

     (the only slightly old picture I could find of the two of us due to computer crashes earlier this year!)

So like I mentioned earlier today is my BFF's 21st birthday and I could NOT be happier! C and I first met in the 4th grade when we both went trick or treating with a mutual friend of ours, and we both HATED each other because we both thought that we were "best friends" with the mutual friend so we couldn't be friends with each other. In the 6th grade when C came to my school, we still weren't really friends with each other and really only became close in high school. C and I have had the CRAZIEST and most random experiences together and I am SOO happy that she is finally 21!! I can't wait to celebrate with her tonight and it is going to be so much fun!!

On a totally different note....does anyone else feel like they just went though an emotional battlefield last night just by watching tv?? First there was Grey's which I was a little teary throughout but by the end I was shouting at the TV and bawling (I won't say why for anyone who hasn't watched it yet but the last 5 min are a DOOZY!!) Then I watched the Office, and was crying at the end of that too because I was just so happy for Jim and Pam and think they are the cutest! The worst for me was Bones, (don't know if anyone out there watches it but if you don't you should) which I watched last because I didn't think it was going to be sad at all and then had such a sad ending that I started crying all over again! WHEW... I don't think I can handle any sadness on tv for a while! 

So I think this will probably be it for me until I come back from Ireland. I hope everyone has a great week and can't wait to catch up with you all when I come back!  Oh and I know swap partners for the koozie and summer swap are going to be announced Monday so future partners if you read this I'll try to email you in Ireland but most likely will email you after!

I am so excited for the rest of this week and cannot WAIT for the weekend!! On Friday my BFF C is turning 21 (woo!!) and on Saturday my parents and I are going to IRELAND!!

Update from the Road

I don't know about anyone else but I used to have the most romantic idea about road trips. This probably comes from my love of the Britney Spears movie Crossroads which is (sadly enough) still one of my favorite movies. Well after taking my fourth or fifth road trip this semester I can officially say that I HATE them. I am SOOO sick of driving, and although I am having so much fun with my dad I cannot wait to be home and see my mom and my dog!

In other news this weekend has been great! The graduation was fantastic and I cannot believe that my dad's godson J, and his girlfriend S are now doctors!! Last night we went to this restaurant called Zimmerman's Roadhouse, and it was AMAZING!!! We all split onion rings and sweet potato fries to start (this definitely wasn't a place to be on a diet!) and then I had the most AMAZING crab cakes with rice and J's sister L, and I split a brownie sundae for dessert...YUM!! After dinner J, S, L, and I all went out to a bar called Rick's which was so much fun, and this morning we all went to brunch before leaving. It was such a great weekend, and I was so glad to see everyone and get to spend time with my dad! 

Lastly, because we are going to be on the road tomorrow, and I might not get to post this I would like to wish everyone a very happy happy Mother's Day. I love my mom SOOO much, and I am more grateful to her than she will ever know. I am so lucky that I am so close with my mom and I cannot wait to see her tomorrow, and celebrate the fact that she is the best Mom in the world!!


Friday, May 8, 2009


So this post is a little late in coming but as of 2pm yesterday I am officially on summer vacation and FINISHED with my junior year!! YAHOOO (well on the first part...the second i'm pretty sad about and can't even think about the "S" word yet haha) Right now I'm in Ann Arbor MI for my dad's godson's graduation from Med School, and it is SO nice to just be relaxing in bed this morning know that I don't have to do ANYTHING but just have fun today! My dad, I, his best friend, and daughter are all going to walk around the Michigan campus today (both my dad and his BFF went to Michigan and were roommates and can't WAIT to show us around) and this afternoon is the graduation which will be so great. 

Tomorrow my dad and I (my mom is at home with the new dog) will start the VERY long road trip back to Boston so I'm sure you all will definitely get some updates from the road from me!! Congrats to all the Collage grads out there, and also to everyone who finished with their finals. I also want to thank everyone in the blogworld for their great support and to Gracie Beth for her finals prayer list... that was such a great idea!! Have a great Friday everyone!
