ode to the moon
oh beautiful moon coming out as the sun sets to sleep, to help us dream of handsome boys on white horses and to help us count sheep, to watch over us as we party all night, you sure are a trooper cuz there might be a fight and until tomorrow when i see you again sleep tight my dear friend cuz tomorrow we will party all night!

yesterday i was so bored that i actually wrote this poem ode to the moon. i dont really know what came over me to write this except for the fact that i was really bored and i couldnt sleep. i just couldnt help but think that if the moon was a person it would either be really bored or really amused watching all the crazy things people do. then i thought i must be really crazy for thinking what the moon would be thinking if it was a person. i also was really frustrated because my best friend has been really shady lately. I just cant help but think random things when its late at night and i cant sleep. im always really tired, but then when i turn off the light and lay down i cant seem to sleep. that always happens to me unfortunately.

The syfy channel on cable tv plays the craziest movies.   I once watched a movie about a leprechaun who kills people. The stories are crazy and the most of them have pretty good premises, however the acting has to be the worst I have ever seen. We all know that day time drama such as days of our lives have really bad actors as well, but at least they are extremely good looking. The acting on the syfy channel is none of the above. In the movie about the leprechaun they chose the two worst actors I have ever seen in my life. The two main characters were a boy and a girl and they were dating. The leprechaun wanted to marry the girl and have little leprechaun babies and he tried to kill the boyfriend. However, the boyfriend wasn’t actually dead and when the boyfriend came back to save her she mentioned that she had kissed the leprechaun and she didn’t know who was a better kisser. He should have dumped her on the spot I mean that is so creepy. On the other hand that’s more of a writing issue.  Recently, I just watched a mini series called shark swarm. Syfy likes to make mini series because I feel because they started making a movie and couldn’t get it all in two hours so they make three of them two hours each. So shark swarm had a really good premise. It started out in a university class with environmental science students studying pollution in the ocean. In the small town that the series was set in had a power plant that dumped nuclear waste into the ocean. The story goes on that the waste did something crazy to the sharks and mutated their brains and they all started swarming to this location eating everybody! I didn’t get to finish the whole series and see exactly what happened, but  it was really good even though the acting was terrible. Hopefully one day I can finish watching it.

Step brothers is one of the funniest movies of all time. The first time I saw this movie, I went to the block to watch it with my cousin Samantha and my friend Alex. Alex thought it was funny, but Samantha and I did not even laugh once. We thought it was the most stupid movie ever! Apparently we weren’t in a comical mood or we just didn’t understand it. When it came out to rent everyone was raving at how hilarious it was and we decided to give it one more chance. Well we watched it again and yep, it was hilarious! I really don’t know why I didn’t think it was funny the first time, but everytime I watch it now I almost come to tears from laughing so hard.

"Lets give them something to talk about how about love loov lovey dovey shooby dauby… I dont know i didnt want to sing to loud and wake up robert and nancy, and my throat is sore ive had a sore throat for a month and a half, and this is not an acoustic environment to request this from me."

Fired up! Is one of the funniest movies of all time. It’s about two high school boys who play football and are notorious players at their school. However, they want to join cheer to go to cheer camp and get even more girls. The script of this movie was so well written. It has so many witty lines and it is so hilarious! I’m a sucker for comedy and cheer movies so this movie was exactly what I was looking for in a movie. Every time I watch this movie I crack up just as much as the first time.

"So not only yesterday do I find out I’m adopted. The people I’ve been calling “Mom” and “Dad” are actually two infertile impostors who bought me outside of a meth clinic in Cincinatti for two boxes of Sudafed, but I also get this news dropped on me - my birth father, Bruce… well he needs a kidney and I’m the only match and apparently Bruce needs it “stat”. Mmm-hmm. You need it stat, Bruce? Huh? Well maybe I needed a father stat instead of my stay-at-home dad who showers me with love everyday of his life, this goddamn spermless liar! 
So now I have to be at Kaiser Permanente at 6 a.m. tomorrow. I know, Bruce couldn’t even afford a real hospital… managed care. Ironic, isn’t it? He never *managed* to care for me."

So about a month ago I got my hair done. I really wanted it to look like the above picture, but I get my hair done by my sister and she kind of made it her own. She really just did it how she has her hair and it wasn’t exactly what I wanted. It came  out really blonde and I just figured I could stay blonde for a while. Well when my hair started growing and my roots came in my natural color which is a dark brown, I started freaking out. I really think it looks tacky when people walk around with outrageous roots. So I took matters into my own hands and went to a different lady to go back brown, as close to my natural color as possible. Little did I know that my ash blonde hair mixed with ash brown would turn my hair green! Yes its true I had green hair for exactly 3 days! Well at this point I was as stressed as could be, I mean I was walking around with green hair. That’s when my friend Katie gave me a referral to her hair stylist at the brea mall. I went thinking that im pretty sure things couldn’t get any worse. Well I found out that the only way to take away green was to add red because they are opposites on the color wheel. So she did my hair a burgundy brown color. I really like it don’t get me wrong, but it was never really what I was going for. However, I found a new hairstylist so I am very excited. She said if I keep going back she can get my hair back to how I really wanted it so im really excited. It’s just going to take time J

The oc came out a long time ago, and ok yes I love this show. However, it sucks that this show made everyone think differently about Orange County. I was born and raised in Orange County and it is not all its cracked up to be. This show makes it seem like everybody who lives in Orange County is rich and gorgeous. Everyone thinks that all the teenagers do drugs and all the moms are cougars. The show was great don’t get me wrong. I love drama and I love teen age shows where the main characters are in high school because it’s easier to relate to. However, I don’t understand how this one show made everyone go, “OH hey you’re from the OC, so are you like rich just like in the show?” There are so many other shows that did not change anyone’s mind about the setting, so how come this show had such a big impact on people? Maybe we’ll never know. Since I am on a rant, I will say that this show was really not the same after they killed Marissa off. 

Nicholas Sparks is one of my favorite authors of all time. I love his novels because they have great romances, great story lines, and they are all set in North or South Carolina. The scenery in the south is so pretty and just by reading his novels I want to go there so bad! The most recent novel I read by Nicholas Sparks was Safe Haven. This novel takes place in South Carolina and it is about a mysterious woman who moves to a small town. She pretty much keeps to herself and works at a local diner. The other main character in the book is a widowed man with two children who owns the local store. They meet and it was pretty much love at first sight for him. However, she was so secretive and mysterious that she basically stayed away. She was always really friendly to his little daughter though. As the story unfolds we find out her secrets and they end up falling in love. The climax of the book is when her husband comes back to kill her and sets the house on fire. She saves her loves children and everything works out in the end. J

One of my favorite shows is Lipstick Jungle. I have watched both seasons all the way through like three times and I could watch it three more. Im really upset that they cancelled the show during that one big writers strike a couple of years back. This show is set in New York city and the three main characters are three successful, strong business women. It follows their lives in their families, careers, romances, and friendships.  I love this show because it has steamy drama, hot romances, and a strong friendship. One of the characters Wendy, played by Brooke shields, is a head of a movie production company and is married to her husband and has two kids. Nico, is editor and chief of a huge magazine and Victory is a fashion designer. I love how this show was written and nothing in the show was too farfetched. One of the biggest turn offs to day time dramas for me is that they always make the drama so unrealistic and so much is going on that it is hard to follow. Lipstick jungle has enough drama to keep its audience  interested, but everything is pretty realistic and easy to follow. I really wish they kept this show going because it honestly is one of my favorites!
