So, Dad is going to be having quadruple bypass heart surgery on Monday morning. Joy. Believe it or not, the worst part of it is that all of the siblings are going to be there. ALL. I have faith in my Dad, he's tough, he'll get through this, HOWEVER, I might come unhinged and bust my oldest sister in the face, thereby being escorted out to security and/or the mental ward of the hospital. Not to mention, everyone is all, "Watch Timmy for us and make sure he doesn't lose his temper" and I'm all HELLO?! HAS EVERYONE TAKEN STUPID PILLS THIS MORNING?! I'm not comfortable with Timmy. Must we really rehash all of the childhood memories involving Timmy? BAH!

The highlight? One of my sisters totally has some Valium with my name on it. Oh, yeah. 

But I firmly believe my Dad is gonna be okay. He's made of tough shit, my old man. I don't know if it's just because of the life he's lead or the fact he's ex-military, but he's got this. All he says is as long as he can be up and moving around by the time football season rolls around, he's cool, which is how I know he's going to do just fine. :-)

Yeah, I'm nervous. I'm not even gonna lie. I'm staying positive about it, but my nerves are completely shot.

I start today as the AGM of the Jax Beach store. I'm sure it's going to be completely fine, but it doesn't stop me from being jittery about the whole thing. I feel flighty as a hummingbird this morning. BAH!

Oh, "Vampire Diaries", when oh when will September be here so that you can grace me with your excellence on Thursday nights? Sigh.

Current favorite color? Purple. Totes.

I got a promotion. YAY! I'm quite nervous though because I haven't been a manager in 8 months, and now I'm going from a regular associate to an Assistant General Manager with no training as to what's changed task-wise and such for my position. Should prove to be exciting, to say the least.

Currently reading "Ask and It Is Given" by Esther and Jerry Hicks. Regardless as to whether or not you believe they're complete hacks (Esther claims to "channel" a group of Non-Physical entities known as 'Abraham'), the core of what they write about is very uplifting, and if people would just give it a chance, I think they would find that it puts them in a fairly great mood after reading. :-)

What other random facts can I write about today, hmm... Oh, yes, READY for "Vampire Diaries" to be back on-air. I love my "True Blood", but my hatred for certain character outweighs my love for others when I'm watching. It's not like that with "Vampire Diaries". I dislike Stefan, and only when he's around Elena. Plus, the pace of the writing and the suspense definitely keep me more entertained than "True Blood". Yeah, go ahead, flame me.

I'm also reading "City of Bones" by Cassandra Clare... Sigh. I'm completely aware of her history with plagiarism which is why it took me so long to read this series, and it's good, don't get me wrong about that, but I'm seeing entirely too many similarities between "Harry Potter" and other works that have somehow been written into this one. It's very unnerving because she's a great writer, albeit a bit too descriptive (for example, when your sentence is literally three lines long because you've used about six descriptive adjectives on two different objects, one might say you're reaching for something to say and/or trying to fulfill a word requirement given to you by your Creative Writing professor), and she has to pull from all of these different published works to make a story. Eh, whatever, I suppose. She's still published. :-/

Okay, I've got nothing now. Off to work!

P.S. That supernatural epic I've been working on for quite some time is finally coming along. Oh, but if I could write a convincing sex scene!

I've recently read "The Kind Diet" and "Skinny Bitch", and I'm here to tell you, I'm sticking with this vegetarian lifestyle from here on out. I've flirted with it in the past, but I always avoided learning about the real horrors of slaughterhouses and what eating meat and dairy will actually do to your body. I finally immersed myself in the information, and after a complete mental breakdown (did you know that the abuse animals suffer in slaughterhouses has little to do with them actually being killed for their meat and more to do with workers actually inflicting unnecessary pain on them i.e., a story I read where one worked ADMITTED raping a cow with a broomstick before it was sent to slaughter? W.T.F.) I cleaned out my fridge, threw out every ounce of meat there was, tossed out all my dairy, and then went out and bought fresh fruit and veggies. I'M. STICKING. WITH. THIS. PEOPLE. 

More than anything, I want to go completely vegan, but that lifestyle is unaffordable right now. When I get a promotion, then sure, I'll gladly and frequently spend the money. Until then though, no meat and my dairy intake is at a minimum (for example, I have veggie chicken that's stuffed with vegetable spaghetti sauce and mozzarella). I've switched to soy creamer, have cut out my sugar and chocolate intake, AND once I get paid this Friday, I'm buying Teecino and throwing out my coffee, both caffeinated and decaf (did you know coffee causes you to store fat cells? Seriously, research this stuff).

Oh, yeah. I mean business.

I've been doing it hardcore for about a week now, and I already feel tons better. I'm curious as to how I'm going to take not having coffee, but I'm fairly certain it's more of psychological addiction that an actual bodily addiction, as evidence by the fact that despite my pot of coffee every morning, I'm still tired and ready for a nap by noon. I think it'll be better to have a cup of Teecino (herbal "coffee") and a piece of fruit.

I'm trying so very hard to be positive these days. I've been reading "The Secret" and studying the law of attraction, and I'm trying, REALLY, REALLY trying to be happy.

But then shit like this happens. Stupid bitch that basically ruined my relationship with my boyfriend and then slept around this company until she got ahead has just become a GM of her own store. WTF? After I have worked so hard and done so fucking much? I'm so over this shit, I really am. I don't want to fucking leave my bed.

Karma does not exist people. It just doesn't. Because if it did, natural selection would've already taken hold of that girl, and the world would be less one more fucking idiot.

How do we feel about the finale? Seriously? Cause, I genuinely think Crystal is the better performer of the two, mainly because she's so comfortable on the stage and performing, whereas Lee is still sheepish and unsure of himself. But... I think Crystal can be a bit of a bitch. I can't really explain it, she hasn't been overly catty except for arguing with the judges every now and again, but she just SEEMS bitchy.

Then again, I'm bitter and was IN LOVE with Lacey at the beginning of the season. Still bitter. But I think it's only because I had a girl crush on her. Her and Kristen Stewart, oy.

Thoughts? Opinions? Honestly, I watched for Simon Cowell. I love him, IDGAF.

"It's so beautiful here," she says, "This moment now, this moment now."
And I never thought I would find her here
Flannel and satin, my four walls transformed
But she's looking at me, straight to center
No room at all for any other thought
And I know I don't want this
Oh, I swear, I don't want this
There's a reason not to want this
But I forgot

In the terminal, she sleeps on my shoulder, hair falling forward, mouth all askew
Fluorescent announcements beat their wings overhead
"Passengers missing - we're looking for you"
And she dreams through the noise, her weight against me
Faced pressed into the corduroy grooves
Maybe it means nothing
Maybe it means nothing
Maybe it means nothing
But I'm afraid to move

And the words, they're everything and nothing
I wanna search for her in the off-hand remarks
Who are you, taking coffee, no sugar?
Who are you, echoing street signs?
Who are you, the stranger in the shell of a lover?
Dark curtains drawn by the passage of time
Oh, words, like rain, how sweet the sound
"Well, anyway," she says, "I'll see you around"

Why Breaking Dawn Must Be Made Into a Movie

With New Moon likely to make yet another metric fuckload of money this weekend we need to find the bright side to the entire Twilight mania. There must be something good that comes from this awful Mormon fantasy that seems to have invaded our culture on every front. That something is the eventual movie version of Breaking Dawn.

Even though New Moon has made a bazillion dollars and even though the third Twilight book, Eclipse, is already filming, Summit has declined to announce the fourth and final Twilight book as a movie. There's a good reason for this: Breaking Dawn is completely fucking insane, and it is probably totally unfilmable. But if they do film it... man, we are in for a treat.

Breaking Dawn opens with Bella Swan, the lacteal heroine of the series, finally getting married to Edward Cullen, the mopey vampire hero. They go off to honeymoon on Isle Esme, a Brazilian island the Cullen clan owns (this is already ridiculous beyond belief. Imagine a vampire going snorkeling; it basically happens in this book), and Edward is afraid to fuck his new bride. The reason: he's super strong and she's just a human - Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex type of situation here. But Bella wears him down and Edward throws it in her - and knocks her the fuck out, leaving her badly bruised.

Let's go over that again: Edward fucks Bella into unconsciousness. This alone should have you running to Fandango to pre-order your tickets, but it only gets better.

Despite being knocked out cold by his sexual style (and having the headboard destroyed), Bella goes back to Edward for seconds. This time he knocks her up. Yes, an undead vampire apparently has enough viable sperm to impregnate a human woman while fucking her off the coast of Rio de Janero. Stephenie Meyer, you fabulous idiot!

The baby in Bella's belly starts growing incredibly fast. And it starts hurting Bella, as each kick it gives has the super strength of a vampire behind it. As it grows, Bella gets sicker, and then the good stuff starts. The baby kicks so hard it breaks Bella's ribs and then severs her spine. Are you imagining Kristen Stewart wearing a fake pregnancy belly and pretending to have been suddenly crippled by her own fetus? Because I am and it's making me laugh and laugh and laugh.

Oh wait, I missed something. Edward is completely freaked out about the baby, fearing it will kill Bella. He tries to convince her to get an abortion (but seriously, how could she? Vampires are tough to kill even in this shitty series), and goes so far as asking Native American wolfboy Jacob to impregnate his wife so that she can have the baby she desperately wants. I'm dizzy with how ridiculous this is, and we're just getting started.

Eventually the baby starts to get born and Bella is dying. The baby has telepathy, by the way, so everybody can read its thoughts while it's in the womb, and it turns out to have an essentially adult mind. Like Alia in Dune; I would accuse Stephenie Meyer of ripping this off, but anyone who thinks that Meyer might have read Frank Herbert has never been within spitting distance of Twilight. The woman is a moron.

In a moment that demands to be shown on the silver screen, Edward gives Bella an emergency C-section with his fucking teeth. It's like something out of XTro, for the love of God. It's so horrible it's brilliant, and this scene alone is why I remain firm in declaring that David Cronenberg must direct Breaking Dawn. This is surely his movie.

Once the baby is out, Bella gets vamped by Edward, as she's about to die at any moment. Then comes the most astonishing turn of events in 21st century literature, and possibly in the entire history of awful fiction aimed at tweens: Jacob the werewolf, who has been madly in love with Bella, sees the new baby girl and immediately imprints on her. What this means, in layman's terms, is that he falls in love with the baby.

I want to pull this out on its own: Jacob falls in love with a baby.

The book makes no bones about this; while Jacob doesn't want to fuck the baby right off the bat, he can't stand to be away from it and visits everyday. His love has been transferred from Bella to the baby (who has the tongue shattering name Renesmee), and because of the science behind imprinting he'll love her forever. So one day he's going to stick his wolf dick in this girl that he see as a bloody newborn. Romance is not dead, it's just being abused by insane Mormon writers.

There's more in Breaking Dawn - the Volturi come back, for one thing - but these are the main amazing events that demand this book to be turned into a film. I will not rest until I have seen a movie in which a werewolf falls in love with a baby. Hell, once I've seen a werewolf fall in love with a baby I may quit movie watching - I will have seen the ultimate culmination of a century of cinema. The entire film of Breaking Dawn would play like the weirdest exploitation film since Doris Wishman died - brutal sex, bizarre body horror, unbelievable pedophilia.

A werewolf falling in love with a baby. This is why Thomas Edison invented this shit in the first place. So we could see a werewolf fall in love with a baby.

 I don't know where I'm going with this. I just keep writing about this couple in my head, and I'm not even sure if I should continue with it. Original stories aren't really my calling, I fear. 

But since you all are my friends, I figure you will give me feedback. A yay or nay to continue.

And keep in mind that this has not been edited at all. This is rough. Rough in the roughest sense of rough.

This is how they say goodbye.Collapse )
