The Minor Fall, The Major Lift....... [11 Nov 2006|05:30am]
[ mood | I'm here and living ]

"We think therefore we are a bit confused" 

Very true. 

Sooooo, the supposed truth is that guys are simple creatures. B has said this to me on numerous occasions and I know he wouldn't say it if he didn't feel it was true. 

So, I accepted that. But still don't know why I can't figure men out. Figured I just know how to pick em lol. 

Then Nick went and made everything as clear as mud. According to him, men are just as complicated as women but in different ways. (I'm not sure about what ways are different) The problem is that guys want women to think that they are simple because of this myth. Which makes them even more complicated in my mind. At least we as women will be the first to tell you we're nearly impossible to figure out.

I don't get it yet I do. I never saw how you could be so simple yet still be able to handle such complicated emotions as falling in love, for example. I know that's always complicated and I've never been in love. In lust sure (haha), but not love. 

It still doesn't help figuring out the opposite sex. It's probably something I'll never understand since everyone is so different. One phrase or look or action could mean two completely different things to two different people. 

Then again, I really really believe that artists/performers feel things deeper than others do. They have an inner passion.......more emotion. How else could they play a dramatic role without it? You tap into that to present the most real performance. 

Tortured artists are always the brilliant ones. If they weren't tortured...they wouldn't be artists. 

That could pretty much be why I am the way I am. I care too much about what others think of me but at the same time, I really don't. I'm irritated when people talk about me and things that are none of their business " Thanks for making me the center of your world, bitches". At the same time, I'm like why do they even care? Why should I care that they care? 

Why do we care so much about what other people think? I mean family.....friends.....significant others....that would make sense. They are important people in your life. You don't want them upset or disappointed in you for your choices and you know they think the same for you. But people you're just aqquaintances with, people you see but don't talk to, people who don't even know you......why do we care what they think? Why do we give them that power to stress us out or make us feel some negative feeling towards ourselves......shame, guilt, self-conscious, uncomfortable, wrong.  I know I've felt it. I'm sure others have. 

Is it just the need to be accepted by everyone? Because that will never happen. There will always be someone who doesn't like you....oftentimes for no good reason at all. 

Sadly, I guess another part of human nature is to gossip. It's terrible, but we just can't help it.  The world would be easier if we all just didn't gossip and spread rumors. Then again, it would be pretty boring too. Double edge sword I suppose. 

Gossip is interesting. But it's so toxic. Gossip (esp when it's false) can be the ultimate destructor. Gossip separates families.  Gossip ruins friendships. Gossip destroys serious relationships. Gossip can put people out of a job or a home. It's that bad and lethal when done right. 

And all it is is words. Words that are "juicy" and "the scoop or the dirt". People who have nothing better to do in life than screw up others' lives. Screw up others' lives just for some sense of instant amusement....a power surge per se. Those people are some of the worst.  If you really have a craving for all that drama, watch The OC or Grey's Anatomy. At least that way, no one gets hurt. 

I wish there was a way to block out all that negativity. It changes points of view, it distorts things. All kinds of things. Maybe then, things would stand a better chance of working out. All the previously mentioned above would be okay. I guess we'll never know. *shrugs*

I don't know what brought on this insightfulness tonight. Perhaps it's very late at night, I'm pulling an all-nighter and need something to occupy my time so it's flys by instead of dragging. Not quite sure. 

Am I crazy or actually making sense?

The Way We Get By...... [09 Jun 2006|11:51pm]
[ mood | thoughtful ]

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


Can one think entirely too much? Can one worry way too much about small random things they feel stupid for worrying about, yet can't help themselves??

If anyone can do it, it's definitely me. The fellow night owls who talk to me in the wee hours of the morning know I'm up because my brain simply cannot shut down and relax...I'm ALWAYS thinking and it stresses me out like whoa.

I am so incredibly sick of school. I want to be out there DOING it, not sitting in a classroom. It's Theatre, yes, you're learning technique, but either you have it or you don't. And core classes are not good for my ADD mind.

I want to go to Randolph Academy in Toronto so badly. I don't think I've wanted anything more in my life than to go to that school. I fell in love with it when we went there on a field trip my junior year of high school. Mr. O says it would truly be my 'element', but this place is a top notch performing arts school.....which means hard as hell to get into. But, if I do, then I'm garanteed professional work after two years going there.

Not to mention how scary it will be to go out on my own.....leave all of my friends and family behind...not only in another state, but in another COUNTRY. And I totally don't understand the currency over there. *The loony? WTF? * But, I want OUT of MI....and Randolph is where I wanna be.

Then there's Mongo. I have been there FOUR years....it really is pretty sad. But, I'm comfortable there...well, sort of anyway.

I love the people I work with...I don't think I dislike anyone there and that's saying something because we have many employees.

There are times I miss the old days....me, Canadian, and Stacy running the host stand. We used to have a freakin blast up there. "Thank you for calling BD's Mongolian BBQ, where the grill is almost as hot as Enrique Iglesias! Or where we clean our servers with Windex!" LMFAO....don't ask....only Stacy and Lauren would understand it. I miss Steve and Ryan Turpin and Rob Stone USA. Steve hired me, no questions asked. Ryan is a family friend, though I haven't heard from him lately. And Rob was just hilarious. *WWJD? World Wide Jewish Domination! lmao* I miss Chad and Don Corbin and John...Chad has got to be one of the funniest people ever.....Don was such a great guy.....and John? John is a really good friend...with REALLY gooooood backrubs.....lol And Tebo.....loooved Tebo. "She's the only sweetheart left in this place. Take care of her for me." Awww.....*sniffles* he said that to uhhhhh...actually, I think it was Pat, on his*Tebo* last day after we said our goodbyes.

But again, I love the people I work with now too. Kriztahl is my boy! :) Evie, Erin, Chrystal, Peter, Lina, Mike L., Mark, Bonnie, Sandy, etc etc etc.

Now, I get to complain. *Oh, you knew it was comin* I have been there four years....you would think that it would warrant some sort of seniority. Only not. I have seen a lot of shit go down at Mongo. But, I rarely ever complain, especially to the managers. Some people say, "Mel, you could be a manager....you've been there long enough." Don't remind me. In my mind though, I know me. Working my way up would only give me an excuse to stay in MI, which I. DO. NOT. WANT. So, I keep myself at this level for motivation. I know that sounds strange, but it's the truth.

My point is that because I don't complain, I'm the one who gets screwed. And I am not the first person to say it either. Hosts ask why I'm always the one there all day. Whatev, that doesn't really bother me unless the person who came in AFTER me gets cut before I do, making me stay all day....like what happened today. Generally, not a problem. But, I wasn't even ASKED if this was ok. They just cut her and expected me to be ok with that. Had she had something she needed to do *Like Erin going to a concert tonight* then I get it. But she stayed and ate, and was there when I left! WTF? Granted, Lina came in at 4, and got me out, and wanted to know why I was the last one there as well.

Peter will come on early for me since he knows I generally get screwed on the floor as well.

THREE YEARS serving, people!! WHY am I ALWAYS in the 10s or 20s?!?! Gimme a fuckin break already. On weekdays, the openers get to pick their sections.....but, oh, wait, when I open practically EVERY Saturday, the VOLUMES are the ones that get the good sections? Lose/lose for me, I suppose.

Even then, like I opened the other day....oh, look, the 20s.....again. *sigh* Jackie, yes, the bitch ,Jackie *she says it herself, so I don't feel bad, though I'm one of few she is really nice to* helps me out. When I'm working with her, she hooks me up with all the easy stuff for prep. Why? "You are always the one getting screwed. I see it every time you're here. And it pisses me off, so I do my part to help you out." Straight from Jackie! Ok, so if Jackie can see it and is hooking me up, then it can't be just me that thinks this.

BUT, I'm me and won't complain. The one time I did, I got the smack down for it. That's what always happens. I finally say something, and it either goes in one ear and out the other, or they get upset with me. So, I just keep my mouth shut and seeth silently.

*deep breath* I'm sorry, I had to get that out of my system.

Then we have The Woodshed. We have blown over the recent WW3 problems/drama.....for now. There will inevitably be more for Mara, Angie, Pam, and I to work out. Oh, I'm so looking forward to it. *rolls eyes*

I haven't even started learning the songs I have to sing for Jamie's wedding. There are supposed to be 6 or so, but they haven't figured out the 6th one yet. I talked them into Clay's The Way, but the others are by the Beatles, the Beegees, Elvis Presley, and Simon and Garfunkel...oh, yay, new arrangements for me to figure out.

I miss the crew from high school. Me, Alison, Sarah, Leah, Bree, Morgan, Jessie, Krystle. I still see Al and Sarah. Jessie's in Alabama, but we still talk. I have no idea what became of Morgan or Bree. I lost touch with Leah and Krys again. I would love for all of us to go out. I miss every single one of them.

Al and I were kinda tipsy the other night and were talking about Mary's wedding. The Maid of Honor thing came up and she's like that would be like you asking Mara to be your MOH instead of me, ya know? LOL I am so NOT ready for marriage...god knows I have doubts about all my high expectation dreams as is.

Don't get me wrong....I do want to fall in love someday. It's a much talked about highly recommended I'm kinda sorry I haven't felt it yet. But, I always figured, I can't go looking for love...that'll end up in heartbreak. Let love find me when the time is right. I don't know why but for some reason, I keep thinking of this quote:

" Someday Topanga's going to be a mother and I'm going to be the father. Or the uncle. Or the way I'm goin, the guy down the street with the binoculars."
-Cory Matthews, Boy Meets World

I have NO CLUE why I relate THAT to me ever being in love. Lol, perhaps, like everyone has managed to be in love once, why am I always the one on the outside looking in? This is my hopeless romantic side here.....don't think I'm gonna go force myself to be 'in love' with whatever guy I next lay eyes on. So NOT my plan. I'm just saying this in general.

I'm usually laid back in relationships. I'm pretty independent in that respect and I give the same courtesy to whoever I'm with. I know I have a life with goals and ambitions and I expect my guy would have the same. School, work, career, friends, family, hobbies, etc. These are all important and shouldn't be forced to be pushed to the side. Your lives shouldn't be each other. Because, let's face it, in this day and age, many things can happen to tear you apart...then what do you have? You gave up everything else for that one person and now they're gone. I'm usually an optimist, but I am also a realist.

I don't like to rush things, though sometimes in the heat of the moment, haha, things happen. But I never regret them. Everything happens for a reason, right? Although, I don't like being uncertain which leads me into.....

At this exact moment, I don't know where I stand in a couple peoples' minds. Yeah, a couple people, in different aspects of life and whatnot.

I'm a naturally curious person, so when I wanna know something, I go digging to find out the answer. IMDB and Google are two of my bestest online friends...lol Even if it's like a random detail of a movie that I can't remember, I will search for it until I figure it out or it will bug the hell outta me.

Same goes with where I stand with people. If you hate me, tell me! If your my friend, tell me! If you have a problem with me, tell me! If you like me, tell me! If you love me, tell me! I like to know exactly where I stand with all the people around me. If you wanna know where you stand with me, all you have to do is ask.

I suppose it's easier said than done, though. Mara's profound words to me: "Get drunk and tell him...that's what I do." Actually, that doesn't have much real relevance here, but it cracks me up. In a warped way, she's right though....I am tres nonconfrontational. I hate fighting, and getting hurt. I would much rather bottle something up, than risk hurting me or the other person. I think that's part of the 'too kind' Me my mom says I'm infamous for. I need to learn to take more chances and risks.

Ahhh, my list of things I wanna do in my lifetime. Those who have skimmed it know I have some pretty crazy things on there. I do know how insane and unattainable some are. I started that list in high school when my future seemed unlimited *Yes, a Wicked quote*. Now, I am fully aware many of these things I want will never happen. I figure aim high, right? But, is that also setting myself up for disappointment? *shrugs* I'm well aware the chances I have at being Maureen Johnson on Broadway or Toronto or the national tour is slim to nil. It's one of the most beloved and popular characters in the theatre world. The job a thousand girls would die for. But, I am still hoping I can achieve this. But, sometimes, I just feel like all I'm doing is daydreaming a hopeless cause....and that saddens me.

I suppose this entry is relatively pointless, but it was therapeutic for me. Thanks for anyone who listened/read and got this far without falling asleep....

Milk, Milk, Lemonade! [20 May 2006|12:17am]
[ mood | kinda tired ]

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


Where to begin???

I don't even know where to start, honestly. LOL Mraz never ceases to amaze me, that's for damn sure. The man has more talent in his pinky finger than most people do in their entire being. Just incredible.

Me and Liz got there around......6ish? And it was COOOOOOLD!!! I went back to the car to grab us hoodies/jackets it was that goosebump-inducing! lol The line was snaked around the corner already, but we were in the first half of the line for sure.

That theatre is awesome! I <3 it! It's all cute! I like the way they set it up with the floor having different levels. We stood on the second level on a stair/stoop of sorts.

The opening act was Big City Rock. An odd choice of opener for Mraz I thought, but they were good. :)

Mraz came out during one of their songs and was acting like a total goofball. ROTFL He was rocking out hardcore! I don't know what he was singing if it was the actual words, but this title Milke, Milk Lemonade! was part of it! It was hysterical and people went nuts for him when he came out! :)

Mraz started his act with just him and his guitar playing The Boy is Gone. Then, Toca came out and they did Childlike Wildlife. Then, it was rock out with full band time. Still Jason, Toca, Ian, Adam, and Eric as the band...gotta love it.

He did both new songs and older stuff. You and I Both was really cool because EVERY SINGLE PERSON in the theatre was singing along. He eventually stopped and had the audience sing the end of the song. It was really cool. I mean, as a performer, the thrill he must have gotten from hearing thousands of strangers/fans singing every word to this song he wrote back in San Diego must be truly awesome in the purest sense of the word. When the crowd has finished, he goes, "Wow, that was beautiful, guys. Thank you." Awwwww.....:)

During Unfold, the band went into a "brizzake-down" and Mraz went off freestyling! He went for a solid three minutes or so......it was amazing. Lurve it! :)

During The Remedy, which he speeds up, btw, lol, he did the first verse and chorus then goes, "In French!!" and sang the second verse in French!! Me and Liz both stopped like, Wait what?? LOL

He talked a lot between sons, towards the end, about ,how, ya know, it's his job to rock, so he wants us to turn it around and use the enthusiasm we have at the show and apply it to our jobs. He's like "Yeah, like if you're a student when you walk into class, slide in on your knees like "WHOOOOO!" Let's rock this shit!" An then you finish that test, jump up on the desk and be like, "Yeah, I'm out, stay fresh!" "Or your workin at Kinko's that 8 hour day, when you clock out, stand up on that counter and be like, "My shift's over! Peace out, bitches! Stay fresh! Be like, "I'm an employee of the Now! Don't wait till Employee of the Week or Month...be Employee of the NOW!" Hahahaha.....lmao I ♥ him. :)

Geek in the Pink was freakin AWESOME live! OMG, LOVE IT! He went full OUT on that one! He ended, with, "Geek in the Pink......My shift's over! Peace out, bitches! Stay fresh!", dropped the mic and strutted off. Hahahaha, leave it to him to make an exit. The encore was Song for a Friend which was cooooooool as well.

We went out to the busses afterwards, but Jason pulled a Houdini Act....so we didn't get to mingle with him. *siiiiiiigh* Ahh, well. And there was this Crazy Psycho Bum that wouldn't leave the fans out there alone! He got into a fight with the security gaurds! He was doing karate moves and stuff....me and Liz were like...."What....the.....fuck....????" Sooooo weird!!!

We got home around.....1amish??? I think, anyway. It was cool to hang out with Liz again....we had stuff to catch up on.....hahaha

I watched the season finale of The OC today! OMG!!!!!!!!! THEY KILLED MARISSA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Damn Volchek....he ran Ryan and Marissa off the road......I can't tell if she's truly dead or what though. I mean they showed her last breath and Ryan couldn't revive her, but why in the world would Mischa leave a hit tv show?? I mean, Adam Brody and Ashton Kutcher have proven time and again you can do both movies and tv at the same time. I don't know......now I'll have to wait till fall to see what the hell happens. *sigh*

We went out to eat @ Ruby Tuesday's and to see The DaVinci Code today as a family. Mmmmm Strawberry Margs.....yum lol.

So, we sit through all the preview crap, then the movie STOPPED and it went back to that screen of ads n stuff!!! People were PISSED and went to complain. Then, they put the movie on, but it was already like 15 minutes into it! No joke, the ENTIRE theater got up and went out to complain. So, everyone had to sit another half hour to see it at the next time, get their money back and free passes. I guess it worked out.

Now, I have to say, the movie is nowhere as good as the book. The book is very intruiging....this went way too quick for me. They didn't explain things in as much detail, which I understand. But they changed things I thought should be there. They didn't get into how intricate all the clues were, they just figured them out which bugged me. But, it was still a good movie. BUT, I highly recommend reading the book either way! Remember: The book is ALWAYS better than the movie!

Well, it's almost 1am and I have work tmm @ 11am...yessss.....I'm out of my Sat morn opening streak! Whoo! lol

So, people holla at me! I have work tmm till 430ish, Ally's ice show Sun, work Mon *but I'm opening so it's def 1st cut*.....then I have Tues, Wed and Thurs free! PLEASE don't make me have to sit here cooped up in the house all day!!!! CALL ME and we'll hang out!!!!!!!! JUST DOOOOO ITTTTT!!!!

heh

Dearly Beloved.....Let's Go CRAZY!!!!!! [26 Mar 2006|08:05pm]
[ mood | happy ]

Image hosting by Photobucket


Sooooo, I know it's a little later than I said I would update and I know y'all have been on the edge of your seat waiting with baited breath to have another post. *Note my sarcasm there * ;)

Ok, so where to start? I guess the begining would be nice, eh? Lol

I worked open server shift like ALWAYS on Sat morning. The day went by fairly quick....sooo, it's 3:30 and my tables are getting up. I'm thinking Yessss....finally a day I can get out on time! Well, the hosts decide to TRIPLE SEAT me! TWO 5 tops and a two top! I was like uh-uh, no way, I am SICK of people doing this to me EVERY TIME!! So, I got instantly pissed off! The night server is on in ten minutes people! Wait a damn minute! Don't fill my section up and think I'll be okie dokie, guess I'll have to stay here till around 7pm then and think I'll be fine with it! lol

So, I started the tables because I don't wanna get fired, thanks, and find Jessica, the night server in my section. Thank goodness she took over for me. Near crisis averted. :) Seems I'm pretty good with talking my way into/out of stuff. Hope I didn't just jinx myself there...knock on wood!

So, I come home and mom tells me Al called, so I cross my fingers and call her back. And she was up for going! Yay!!!

So, I ate a quick dinner, got ready, got gas, and picked Al up around 10 to 9pm. And we made our way out to Sevin the nightclub in Pontiac!

So, we're on Southfield and there's this truck a car ahead of us with like 5 mattresses in it's bed. Suddenly, the car in front of me comes to a freakin halt and I'm like 'Shit, either I get over a lane or rear end this car!' So, I get over and A MATTRESS FELL OUT OF THIS DUDE'S CAR and he didn't even stop!!!!! We fucking ran over a MATTRESS!! It was scarry! Me and Al were like 'oh shit, this is SO not a good sign!'

A little bit afterwards, this guy pulls next to us and is honking and pointing at the front of my car. We're both like 'ohhh boy what happened?'. The tire was fine, the lights are fine, what the hell is his problem, so we kept going till we got to the club. We looked at that side of the car and NOTHING was wrong so I have NO clue WTF that guy was pointing at!!

I left my cell phone in the car that was an oops but oh well.

I don't think I've explained Sevin but it's awesome!!! On the smaller side, but a perfect club for everyone...well, who likes to club anyways. :) Pounding music, light show, nice dance floor, dancers in cages, huuuge bar, good guy/girl ratio, VIP room, waterfalls, etc. Freakin great!!

But, alas, I didn't get to do the 'club' thing ,ie drink and dance. One, I had to drive home, and two Al is NOT a club dance kinda person. So, we walked around or sat on the leather couch talking.

We were watching the dance floor and as I turn around to go back to our 'waiting area' (lol) this guy pops out of NOWHERE and asks me to dance! Ahhhh! lol Had he been cute, I might have said yes, but he was a slightly creepy older guy....uhmm no. That and I couldn't abandon Al there. I quickly declined and walked at a good pace to our couch before totally cracking up!

Sooooo, Ashley didn't even show till 11:30 or so! Fashionably late I guess. We were walking back to our couch when they walked right by us! Gahhhh.....Ahsley walked RIGHT next to me and smiled as he went past! Awwwwww.......he's adorable...and I mean that. :)

So, we went out to the dance floor where they had set up a table and two chairs for him and Tiffany. Only problem, there was NO, and I mean ZERO organization to this! No, everyone get in a single file line, get in, get out like it should be. No, the crowd just well, crowds, around the table, everyone fighting for a chance to get to the front....nobody moving after they're done, so others can't get through. It was ridiculous. I think Ashley might have said something because then they moved him up a couple stairs to a little sitting area on their left. And tried to get the crowd into a line. Obviously, starstruck drunk people don't listen very well. *shakes head*

Now, it's an organized clutter. We stood there waiting for ,no joke, 45 Minutes! I was getting seriously frustrated...like REALLY. They kept letting all the staff and 'people who know the manager' in and the line was going NOWHERE! Let them meet him AFTER the crowd, dumbasses! We stood in the SAME spot the whole time!

I finally had enough and go, "Al, you now have a migraine." She's like What? but did as I said. I cut to the head of the line to talk to the security dude standing there. At first, he told me to get back in line *Pshhh right!* and I told him I needed to talk to him. I told him that my friend is getting a migraine and I need to get her home. Is there anyway we can get in and out? He asked where she was, I showed him Al. He told me to get her, so I did, and he tells us we'll be next!

Now during this time, some drunk girl asked, more like barked, to Al, "WTF does your friend think she's doing?" Al told her I was going to see what the hold-up was. Then, when I brought Al up, the girl was like, "What makes you so fucking special? How come you get to go up?". Al told her she had epilepsy (sp?) and she had to get in and go! HAHAHAHA So, we totally lied to get in right away but what the hell? It WORKED right???? LOL

We had to wait another minute or so and then we were climbing the stairs to Ashley who is just completely freaking adorable! I can't get over it! :)

My impression besides adorable? Very nice, genuine, friendly, sweet, and soft. He himself was soft and well as his touch and his voice...but that's prolly cuz of the pounding music! lol

So, we walk up there and he greeted Al first, shaking her hand and asking her name and how she's doing. She told him she was getting a little headache-y and he goes, "I know! I'm gonna wake up with a migraine tomorrow too!"

Then, he turns to me and shakes my hand and asks my name. Thing is, he can't hear much either, so he told me to get right up in his ear so he could hear! Gahhhhh.....LOL So, of course, I did, talk right to his ear *Yes, his hair is soft*

At that point, Tiffany had finished signing two pics for me and Al and goes, "HI guys! How are you??" Al, not having watched There and Back was just like hi....I on the other hand, knew and said "Hey Tiffany! Good, how are you?" She was good.

Then, we got in figuration for the picture. (Al gave her camera to the security guy up there with them) Me and Al were in the middle. Tiffany was on Al's left. ASHLEY was on my right! He's quite friendly--no qualms about getting right up next to you! lol He slid his arm around my waist *hand on hip* and pulled me in and leaned over a little bit....soo frickin cute! The guy screwed up the pic the first time (he zoomed in all the way and only got me and Al! LOL) so, we got to take another one! And Ashley 'held' me the whole time....gahhhh...Tiffany is a very lucky girl. And Tiffany is beautiful in person....she really is gorgeous. :)

After the picture was taken, Ashley signed the pics, and asked us if we wanted one. *Well, DERRRR!* Of course we each took one! He thanked us for coming out and I in turn thanked him for stopping by in Detroit! Heh. He thanked us again, and HUGGED us both! He initiated it, not us! Waay cute! *beams*

Al got some great pics of him at the table, at the lounge, and of course, the one of the four of us! I have got to get her memory card and make a cd of it so I can put the pics up here and at MySpace! Hehehe

After that, we hightailed it outta there so as to avoid the highly pissed drunk girls! hahaha Gooooooood times!

Next up, Anothy Rapp on April 17th with Ariel! EeeeeeeeeeEeeeee!!!

So, Al and I decided last night to go to lunch...we ended up at Mongo. Actually, it was quite good! lol I get sick of it quickly so, it's nice when it really is yummy.

Mistah was there...we were getting salads and he seriously almost ran into me! I averted thank god and he didn't even notice! I was like Al...and nodded my head. lol


As we're leaving, he comes RIGHT up behind me and says "Byye, Mel" and I turn cuz he kinda startled me, and he smiled... Ahhhhh, things like THAT are why I keep the delusion going! hahahaha

As we walked out, I voiced that to Al and she's like What?? I was right there and I missed it?!?! lol Yeah, go figure.....and as we're going back to the car, who comes out the back door, but Mistah! goes into the shed. A part of me was SERIOUSLY tempted to rush into that shed and jump him! But, I didn't...sad for me...teehee.

I came home and read a litte, caught up to a couple things, and watched the series finale of What I Like About You. Of course everything turned out great and they all live happiliy ever after. The show left me kinda depressed. Why can't real life be like that? You get your dream come true......your love comes back to you.....your longtime crush finally sucks it up and makes a move. *Yes that did happen in the show, not me projecting feelings here* Life would be so much easier if everything worked out. Ahhh well, no sense in trying to live a fairytale....gotta deal with reality first. *nods*

On THAT note, I'm gonna get on outta here and finish reading Without You, Anthony Rapp's book. And it's good! Definitely an inside look...damn, I would NEVER share the things he has!!

Ciao!
Melanie

The Tribute..... [18 Mar 2006|08:22pm]
[ mood | sick ]

Image hosting by Photobucket


This is my tribute to the nice girls. To the nice girls who are overlooked, who become friends and nothing more, who spend hours fixating upon their looks and their personalities and their actions because it must be they that are doing something wrong.

This is for the girls who don't give it up on the first date, who don't want to play mind games, who provide a comforting hug and a supportive audience for a story they've heard a thousand times.

This is for the girls who understand that they aren't perfect and that the guys they're interested in aren't either, for the girls who flirt and laugh and worry and obsess over the slightest glance, whisper, touch, because somehow they are able to keep alive that hope that maybe... maybe this time he'll have understood. This is an homage to the girls who laugh loud and often, who are comfortable in skirts and sweats and combat boots, who care more than they should for guys who don't deserve their attention.

This is for those girls who have been in the trenches, who have watched other girls time and time again fake up and make up and fuck up the guys in their lives without saying a word.

This is for the girls who have been there from the beginning and have heard the rite words of advice, from "there are plenty of fish in the sea," to "time heals all wounds." This is to honor those girls who know that guys are just as scared as they are, who know that they deserve better, who are seeking to find it.


This is for the girls who have never been in love, but know that it's an experience that they don't want to miss out on. For the girls who have sought a night with friends and been greeted by a night of catcalling, rude L0VESzs and explicit invitations that they'd rather not have experienced.

This is for the girls who have spent their weekends sitting on the sidelines of a beer pong tournament or a case race, or playing Florence Nightingale for a vomiting guy friend or a comatose crush, who have received a drunk phone call just before dawn from someone who doesn't care enough to invite them over but is still willing to pass out in their bed.

This is for the girls who have left sad song lyrics in their away messages, who have tried to make someone understand through a subliminally appealing profile, who have time and time again dropped their male friend hint after hint after hint only to watch him chase after the first blonde girl in a skirt.

This is for the girls who have been told that they're too good or too smart or too pretty, who have been given compliments as a way of breaking off a relationship, who have ever been told they are only wanted as a friend.

This one's for the girls who you can take home to mom, but won't because it's easier to sleep with a whore than foster a relationship; this is for the girls who have been led on by words and kisses and touches, all of which were either only true for the moment, or never real to begin with.

This is for the girls who have allowed a guy into their head and heart and bed, only to discover that he's just not ready, he's just not over her, he's just not looking to be tied down; this is for the girls who believe the excuses because it's easier to believe that it's not that they don't want you, it's that they don't want anyone.

This is for the girls who have had their hearts broken and their hopes dashed by someone too cavalier to have cared in the first place; this is for the nights spent dissecting every word and syllable and inflection in his speech, for the nights when you've returned home alone, for the nights when you've seen from across the room him leaning a little too close, or standing a little too near, or talking a little too softly for the girl he's with to be a random hookup.

This is for the girls who have endured party after party in his presence, finally having realized that it wasn't that he didn't want a relationship: it was that he didn't want you. I honor you for the night his dog died or his grandmother died or his little brother crashed his car and you held him, thinking that if you only comforted him just right, or said the right words, or rubbed his back in the right way then perhaps he'd realize what it was that he already had. This is for the night you realized that it would never happen, and the sunrise you saw the next morning after failing to sleep.


This is for the "I really like you, so let's still be friends" comment after you read more into a situation than he ever intended; this is for never realizing that when you choose friends, you seldom choose those which make you cry yourself to sleep. This is for the hugs you've received from your female friends, for the nights they've reassured you that you are beautiful and intelligent and amazing and loyal and truly worthy of a great guy; this is for the despair you all felt as you sat in the aftermath of your tears, knowing that that night the only companionship you'd have was with a pillow and your teddy bear.

This is for the girls who have been used and abused, who have endured what he was giving because at least he was giving something; this is for the stupidity of the nights we've believed that something was better than nothing, though his something was nothing we'd have ever wanted.

This is for the girls who have been satisified with too little and who have learned never to expect anything more: for the girls who don't think that they deserve more, because they've been conditioned for so long to accept the scraps thrown to them by guys.


This is what I don't understand. Men sit and question and whine that girls are only attracted to the mean guys, the guys who berate them and belittle them and don't appreciate them and don't want them; who use them for sex and think of little else than where their next conquest will be made. Men complain that they never meet nice girls, girls who are genuinely interested and compelling, who are intelligent and sweet and smart and beautiful; men despair that no good women want to share in their lives, that girls play mindgames, that girls love to keep them hanging. Yet, men, I ask you: were you to meet one of these genuinely interested, thrillingly compelling, interesting and intelligent and sweet and beautiful and smart girls, were you to give her your number and wait for her to call... and if you were to receive a call from her the next day and she, in her truthful, loyal, intelligent and straightforward nice girl fashion, were to tell you that she finds you intriguing and attractive and interesting and worth her time and perhaps material from which she could fashion a boyfriend, would you or would you not immediately call your friends to tell them of the "stalker chick" you'd met the night prior, who called you and wore her heart on her sleeve and told the truth? And would you, or would you not, refuse to make plans with her, speak with her, see her again, and once again return to the bar or club or party scene and search once more for this "nice girl" who you just cannot seem to find? Because therein lies the truth, guys: we nice girls are everywhere. But you're not looking for a nice girl. You're not looking for someone genuinely interested in your intermural basketball game, or your anatomy midterm grade, or that argument you keep having with your father; you're looking for a quick fix, a night when you can pretend to have a connection with another human being which is just as disposable as the condom you were using during it.


So don't say you're on the lookout for nice girls, guys, when you pass us up on every step you take. Sometimes we go undercover; sometimes we go in disguise: sometimes when that girl in the low cut shirt or the too tight miniskirt won't answer your catcalls, sometimes you're looking at a nice girl in whore's clothing - - we might say we like the attention, we might blush and giggle and turn back to our friends, but we're all thinking the same thing: "This isn't me. Tomorrow morning, I'll be wearing a teeshirt and flannel shorts, I'll have slept alone and I'll be making my hungover best friend breakfast. See through the disguise. See me." You never do. Why? Because you only see the exterior, you only see the slutty girl who welcomes those advances. You don't want the nice girl.. so don't say you're looking for a relationship: relationships take time and energy and intent, three things we're willing to extend - - but in return, we're looking for compassion and loyalty and trust, three things you never seem willing to express. Maybe nice guys finish last, but in the race they're running they're chasing after the whores and the sluts and the easy-targets... the nice girls are waiting at the finish line with water and towels and a congradulatory hug (and yes, if she's a nice girl and she likes you, the sweatiness probably won't matter), hoping against hope that maybe you'll realize that they're the ones that you want at the end of that silly race.


So maybe it won't last forever. Maybe some of those guys in that race will turn in their running shoes and make their way to the concession stand where we're waiting; however, until that happens, we still have each other, that silly race to watch, and all the chocolate we can eat (because what's a concession stand at a race without some chocolate?)

....survey. I don't really have much to update on in life....nothing of great interest for the general public at least. Guys are completely clueless, but I've known that for a while. I practically spelt it out for him and I still don't think he really understands. Those who know the whole story, know what I'm talking about.

....that sounds like a sneeze? A haiku? lol

Well, I had to write a few haikus for my Creative Writing class, o I though I would share them with you.

In the grand bouquet
Dotted tiny red rosebuds
Among the lillies

She's flying solo
Spreading open her new wings
Fly away from home

Sweet red strawberries
Sparkling champagne in ice
Perfect night for two

Pale porcelain face
Shell pink lips and aqua eyes
Thrown in the corner

A black velvet sky
Diamonds twinkling within
The galaxy's eyes

Sooooo, are those any good????? Whatcha think??

Long Time Coming-Oliver James

Everybody wants to be loved
every once in a while
we all need someone to hold on to
just like a helpless child
yeah
can you whisper in my ear
let me know it's alright
it's been a long time coming
down this road
and now i know
what i've been waiting for
and like a lonley highway
i'm trying to get home
ooo loves been a long time coming
you can look for a lifetime
you can love for a day
you can think you got everything but
everything is nothing when you throw it away
yeah
then you look in my eyes
and i have it all
once again
it's been a long time coming
down this road
and now i know
what i've been waiting for
just like a lonley highway
i'm trying to get home
ooo loves been a long time coming
didn't know i was lost
til you found me
uh huh
didn't know i was blind
but now i see
can you whisper in my ear
let me know it's alright
it's been a long time coming
down this road
and now i know
what i've been searching for
oh been a long long highway and
now i see
ooo loves been a long time
ooo been a long time
loves been a long time coming

Is anyone else as sick of all the SuperBowl hoopla as I am??? It's EVERYWHERE! All I hear about. I. Do. Not. Care. I already think football is a totally ridiculous sport. Oh yeah, men's men. Grrrrr.....they were tight clothes and tackle each other. Fighting over a ball like a bunch of wild dogs. How sexy. What a turn-on. *rolls eyes*

Celebs are out in full force as well. Like Whoa. Jimmy Kimmel is here. I wanna go see Jimmy Kimmel. A late night host I like is here, but from the sounds of it, there's been ticket mishaps and whatnot. Hmmmmm......

SmashMouth was here. Been there, seen them. Nothing to scream about. Pepsi Smash did a concert and the Goo Goo Dolls were here. Damnit, that's twice I've missed them when they were in town. Oy......

So, I researched some stuff today on my breaks and boy, oh, boy do I have some ideas for next month. :) Should be a blast. ;)

Clay Aiken is such a tease......he's having waaaay too much fun with his blog lately LOL!

Can we say VIP, people???
