Alanis Morissette, Ryan Reynolds engaged
June 16, 2004

NEW YORK --Isn't it ironic? Alanis Morissette, who made her name with poignant, angry songs about wrecked relationships, is engaged. The 30-year-old singer says her boyfriend, actor Ryan Reynolds, has asked her to marry him, according to Us Weekly magazine. The couple hasn't set a date yet.

Morissette and the star of the movie "National Lampoon's Van Wilder" started dating by e-mail two years ago.

"I knew early on that he was someone I could spend the rest of my life with," she told the magazine for its June 28 issue. "I just feel like we're family and we're on this journey of evolving together. He's courageous, he'll talk about anything, he takes responsibility, he's just unbelievable."

Reynolds, 27, flew to Ottawa to ask Morissette's parents for permission to propose to her -- which the singer didn't know about. He also helped design her 2.5 carat emerald-cut platinum ring, and got down on one knee to give it to her.

"We were at home," she said. "It was very simple, pure and sweet -- and shocking!"

Morissette, whose songs include "Ironic" and "You Oughta Know," has won several Grammys, including album of the year for 1995's "Jagged Little Pill."

ALANIS IS GETTING MARRIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [15 Jun 2004|10:56pm]
[ mood | jubilant ]
[ music | "Knees of My Bees" ~Alanis to Ryan ]

OMG! I am soooo happy for them!!!!!!!!! Hmmm, I wonder if this means that Ryan is becoming a nun (LOL... you know, being married to GOD and all...)

Alanis Morissette is not only happy and in love, now she's officially engaged.

The 30-year-old singer broke the news about her engagement to actor Ryan Reynolds to her mother last Thursday. The couple have dated for more than two years and Ms. Morissette's joy about finally finding the right partner is reflected in her new CD, So Called Chaos, especially on the song, Knees Of My Bees, in which she wrote "ga-ga in love" about Mr. Reynolds.

"I was absolutely delighted when Alanis told me," Georgia Morissette confirmed yesterday to the Citizen. She lives in Ottawa with husband, Alan.

"I totally approve of Ryan, he's just a good guy."

She said she's met her daughter's fiance several times and she's always found him to be a sincere, genuine guy.

"He's got a very good heart."

The Vancouver-born Mr. Reynolds, the youngest son of a RCMP officer, attended Kwantlen University in Surrey, B.C., before getting into the movies. He has appeared in several films including National Lampoon's Van Wilder, The In-Laws and Foolproof, as well as a failed TV sitcom, Two Guys, A Girl and A Pizza Place.

Mr. Reynolds is also smitten with Ms. Morissette and he's constantly been by her side ever since meeting the pop diva through her ex-boyfriend, actor Dash Mihok.

Ms. Morissette has had several well-publicized romances, but none have ever reached this stage.

The couple have been seen in Ottawa and were together earlier this year at the Juno Awards in Edmonton, where they sported rings as "symbols of their love, not of an impending marriage," they said in interviews.

As for her daughter's state of bliss, Ms. Morissette said she's never seen her so happy and committed to one person.

"Let's put it this way, it's the first time I've seen her this delighted in her life about somebody in her life. This is just the icing on the cake."

She could not say if the happy couple might be getting married soon, adding she's not aware of their wedding plans.

Ms. Morissette's manager in Los Angeles could not be reached yesterday for comment.

In the past, the couple have talked about their desire to adopt a child, an option Ms. Morissette has said she might prefer to giving birth.

"I would like to have children, though I'm not attached to having my own kid," she told a U.S. magazine recently. "I think that there's so many babies on this planet that don't have parents.

"Adoption is something I'll definitely be looking into. I take all my experiences into account when I consider having children."

Ms. Morissette begins a North American tour with the Barenaked Ladies July 13 in Cleveland and is expected to make a stop in mid-August in Toronto.

THAT FUCKING PRICK IN EAST FISHKILL!!!! [14 Jun 2004|07:25am]
[ mood | irate ]

I am beyond pissed off right now. I finally got a letter from the "East Fishkill Town Court", acknowledging my guilty plea for the speeding charge, despite the fact that the speed I was supposedly clocked at was complete and total bullshit and the cop knows it. But that isn't really news. Oh no, my friend, the news that I am currently seething over is the fact that the State of New York demands that I pay them what ultimately amounts to...hmmm, I don't know... THREE WEEKS' PAY????????? In addition to the $120 fine for the speeding, I am being forced to pay a $55.00 surcharge to the state because I chose to plead through the mail, rather than drag my ass all the way back to East Assfuck and cry in front of the judge...only to STILL be found guilty. So yeah, I don't even have $175.00 to my name at the moment, which means that I'll have to borrow the money from my parents. If I don't pay New York by Saturday, the DMV in Albany is going to suspend my license. Isn't that just peachy-keen? OHHH WAIT, I FORGOT... I can't even write them a personal check or send cash, so I'm going to have to drag my ass to the fucking bank and get a money order or a certified check, neither of which I know anything about. Yup, so I'm not in such a great mood at the moment. But I am going to Connecticut to see my Emily today, so that makes things a little more bearable. Hopefully, I won't get stopped on the way to Cheshire and get fucking arrested by SWAT or something...

Not Such a Lightweight, Afterall... [13 Jun 2004|08:04pm]
[ mood | amused ]

You know, for someone who doesn't drink, I sure have "experimented" a lot... Who would have thought that little 'ole me could throw back 2 full shots of Stoli vodka (70 proof), and not get even a HINT of a buzz. I know it's not much alcohol in the first place, but given my 95-pound frame and virtual inexperience with the stuff, you'd think I'd at least have felt something. I mean, a certain other friend (who shall remain nameless...must protect the innocent) had exactly the same amount of alcohol that I did, and she was extremely giggly. I just felt really hot, and-well- a bit horny, if you must know. LOL But alas, I was surrounded by my girlies, so nothing happened. I'm afraid after last night that I might actually be an "emotional drunk," which gives me even more reason to declare myself "dry" and leave it at that. I honestly don't know why I keep experimenting; I really don't need to become an alcoholic. I have enough problems as it is. But I don't regret anything I've done so far--it's all been done in very safe environments, and ingested purely out of curiosity. And, if I might add, pretty damn fun. Hahaha.

[ mood | hopeful ]

First, I give you the lyrics to a song that is...well, it's just fucking amazing:

"Doth I Protest Too Much"
Alanis Morissette

I'm not threatened by every pair of legs you watch go by
I don't cringe when you stare at women; it's just a thing called "guy"
I don't notice your sideways glances or where your loyalty lies
I'm secure and out of me it's hard to get a rise

I'm not jealous
I don't get moved by much
I'm not enraged
not insecure as such
not going insane
rational stays in touch
Doth I protest too much?

I'm not tortured by how oft you're busy cuz I've got things to do
I'm not disappointed about how you don't miss me cuz I don't need you to

I'm not needy
I don't get clingy much
I am not scared
I'm not afraid as such
I'm not dependent
Rock solid stays in touch
Doth I protest too much

So much energy to prove to you who I can't possibly be
So much energy to prove to you I'm not who you hate for me to be

I'm not saddened and I don't miss you cuz I have moved on too
I'm not concerned about your new lover cuz I've a new lover too

I'm not depressed
I don't get down that much
I'm not despondent
I am not dark as such
I'm never sad
Keep chin up stays in touch
Doth I protest too much

My Friends Don't Fuck Around... [09 Jun 2004|12:50am]
[ mood | loved ]

The following is a threat made by my dear friend, Emily, whilst in a slightly drunken (but still completely sincere) rage. It was originally directed at a specific person, but I am sure it would apply to anyone in my life:
AbsintheSorrow: "Hurt my Katie anymore... or ever again.. and I will torture you so hardcore that you will beg me to kill you before I'm done... and you better believe I FUCKING mean it"

Awww, I feel all warm and fuzzy inside!! I truly believe that I have the best friends in the world.

Eeep. Methinks Someone Put My Head in a Blender... [04 Jun 2004|10:51pm]
...and it's permanently stuck on "puree." I guess this is what it feels like to grow up--ahh yes-- unbridled freedom. You spend your childhood, more or less, smiling and nodding--always eager to please the grown-ups in any way possible. Then, as a "reward" for all that hard work, life blesses you with seven long years of adolescence, during which a total of no more than three people on the face of the earth ever really understand and appreciate you. The teenage years are filled to the brim with DRAMA... (I don't think I need to elaborate on this one, do you? LOL). Anyway, I guess I always held the belief that, if you survived adolescence and dealt with issues head-on along the way, things would eventually start to make at least a LITTLE sense.

Hmmmm. Well, I have exactly 21 days left as a teenager, and I can say with complete and utter honesty that I have never been more confused and overwhelmed in my life. Today ended up being particularly symbolic of the chaotic state in which my mind perpetually seems to be nowadays:

It started off innocently enough... I got up pretty damn early by my standards (7:30am), which was a good thing, all-in-all. I just wish I could get my circadian rhythms back in order instead of flirting with insomnia several nights a week... *sigh* Anyway, umm I took a much-needed shower, got my drugs from the pharmacy, and attempted to get some work done on my room before it was time to pick up Jenny. My dear, sweet parents declared the family's "honeymoon/reunion" period officially OVER (I was amazed by how long they lasted this time...almost 3 weeks!!) Needless to say, they feel free now to openly criticize each other about any and every kind of bullshit imaginable. It goes without saying that I (the one and only child) am free game. I mean, I love my parents to death, but I SWEAR TO GOD: IF I HEAR ANOTHER SENTENCE BEGINNING WITH "YOU AND YOUR MOM" Or "YOU AND YOUR DAD" threatening to escape from either parent's lips, I just might pull a Lizzie Borden on them.... Argghhh... Case in point: Mom accidentally leaves water bottle in middle of living room floor after doing some exercises. Dad starts pacing the floor or whatever, and trips over said water bottle. Dad gets embarrassed, passes it off it as anger, and proclaims--in a most patronizing tone-- to the only person within earshot (yours truly, of course): "You two are just fucking insane!!!!" The violent urges my dad brings out in me when he makes statements like that frightens me. The anger is almost blinding, if that makes any sense...

My opportunity to flee the smotheringly small Ackman household came at 2pm: time to pick up Jenny for a brief session of retail therapy at good 'ole Emerald Square!!!! *nostalgic sigh* Yup, it was all going great... Jenny made sure that Jay and his girlfriend were gone by the time I reached the Dealys' house, which was a tremendous burden lifted off my shoulders, for sure. I sensed that Jen was planning this ahead of time when she asked me (which she NEVER does) when exactly I thought I'd be there to pick her up. Leave it to ME, the psychotic jilted pseudo-lover, to find something to go ballistic over, even after the "heartbreaker" is asked to leave his own house because the mere mention of his significant other makes me curse my inability to purge on command. Not that she, herself, makes me physically ill, per se. What she REPRESENTS to me (that is to say, from my point of view ONLY), particularly in reference to my relationship with Jay, on the other hand, triggers a frenzied, jealous rage deep within me that I know, intellectually, is incredibly irrational and unfounded.

That being said, bear with me on this one... When I arrived to pick up Jenny, what should be parked in the Dealys' driveway but a dark green NEON. *STABBING PAINS* I figured out pretty quickly that it was Courtney's, and I guess this goes to show you that it doesn't really have anything to do with her personally; given how harshly I reacted to this little situation that I'm about to briefly explain, I could have turned anything into a tyrant about how much I "hate" her (meaning: how much I hate that she's forcing me to face a painful reality about Jay's feelings for me by just being his girlfriend). That being said, SHE CAN'T HAVE A NEON, TOO!!!! ARGGGHHHH... Oh, and of course, her's has a spoiler...eh, she just has an edge over me in just about everything, I guess... *emo tear* God, I know I read waaay too much into the situation, but if you want to know how much it got to me, just ask Krystle what kind of shape I was in when I dropped by unannounced (sorta) and plopped down right in the middle of what she was doing so that I could rant. I knew SHE would understand the car-related insult...lol... THE NEON IS MY BABY, AND MINE ALONE!!! AND I DRIVE A STANDARD, SUCKERS!!! Mwuhahaha..

Hmmmm...let's see if I can't conjure up some thoughts on the positive things that happened on this mind-fuck of a Friday:
-after seeing parts of Van Helsing in all of it's vampy goodness and then having Kay plant the idea of getting paid to scare the shit out of people as the goth-vamp at Spooky Word this fall, I ummm...BOUGHT A CORSET!!! It's pink, of course, but not the usual "pretty" pink. It's like

Happy Birthday, Alanis!!!!!! [01 Jun 2004|07:02pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]
[ music | "Bent for You" ~Alanis ]

Thoughts of the moment:

-Happy 30th Birthday to my goddess/idol, Alanis!!!

-I am realizing just how big of an apology I owe myself for being such a horrible "caretaker." I am sick of ignoring even my most basic of needs in the false hope that doing so will somehow make me a strong, hardworking person. Life doesn't owe me anything; I need to learn how to respect myself. Period.

-I need to stop playing the victim in these twisted, fucked up quasi-love relationships. These fucking mind-games have got to stop one way or another. I won't be this wide-eyed, slobbery puppy dog who pisses herself in excitement when her owner arrives to free her from her cage for some stale kibble and a pat on the head. (Poetic, no?) But seriously, I have to somehow find a way to let go of these precious little illusions that I've been guarding so fiercely. Time to move on and stop believing that being groomed as some kind of romantic "understudy" is somehow justified by my intensity and aggressiveness. The fact that I'm in this situation is entirely my own doing. But it still has to stop, as painful as the prospect might seem to me at the moment. I shall keep thee posted...

-I suppose that's all for now.

I'm Back!!! [23 May 2004|04:53pm]
[ mood | aggravated ]

Hey All,
I apologize for being so unavailable over the past few weeks, even since I've returned from my "Midwest Extravaganza." All in all, I guess you could say the trip was okay... I wouldn't exactly call it a vacation. In ANY sense of the word, for that matter. I ended up meeting some pretty cool people in Louisiana, Memphis kicked ass (despite the fact that we almost got mugged on Beale Street) and it was good to see my family in Illinois. Driving halfway across this great nation of ours in our tiny blue Neon got to be a bit tedious, though... (Em knows what I looked like at the ass-end of the drive home--LOL) Anyway, the family's driving me nuts and I have to go. Until next time.

Goin' Down to the DIRTTY SOUTH (Again) [02 May 2004|11:49pm]
[ mood | giddy ]
[ music | ALL KINDS OF ALANIS ]

Wow. So much has happened recently, and ALL of it deserves to be properly explained in an update. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to do that at the moment because I am leaving to go down to Louisiana tomorrow afternoon. The plans are kinda sketch... I was PROMISED a trip to New Orleans, and I'm pretty sure that my dad will follow through on that. The semi-sucky part is that:

a.) I have no idea if I can legally get my prescription filled in Louisiana for various reasons that are probably none of your damn business. So there. LOL

b.) After New Orleans, Dad and I are going to make permanent ass-imprintations on the seats of my Baby Neon by driving 15 hours to Illinois to visit practically my entire family. Yeah, and then it's 21 hours (that's if we floor it) back here to good 'ole Attleboro..


Ummm yeah so I really need to rest and go pack. LOL I am talking to all 3 of my "readers" at the moment... Haha. Oh, and check back frequently because I am surely going to be HELLA bored at times during this mammouth road trip...

The more people I coerce into clicking on the link below (NOT the pretty banner), the greater the chance I have at winning an "Under Rug Swept"-Era lithograph signed by Alanis. According to Maverick, at least. So, if you would, humor me and click on the link!! Thanks muchly!!!!!

FUCK YEAH!!!!!!!! [29 Apr 2004|09:15am]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

Three words:

ONLINE..........
FUCKING............
PRE-SALE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For as depressed, lonely, self-loathing, (and constipated, no less...mwuhahahahaha) as I've been lately, I dare say that I couldn't be much more excited than I am at this very moment. Why, you ask? Well, actually there are TWO distinct reasons for my current uphoria, ::ahem:: the main one being that I JUST ORDERED TWO TICKETS TO THE ALANIS / BNL CONCERT!!!!!!!!!!! August 9, 2004....Tweeter Center for the Performing Arts..... Mansfield, MA..... 7:00 pm...... Section 5, Row P, Seats 34 & 35..... AND YOU CAN'T STALK ME BECAUSE THE TICKETS ARE SELLING LIKE HOTCAKES!!!!!! They don't even go onsale to the "general public" until Saturday morning, but.... there is an internet pre-sale going on for anyone who has an AMEX card, and my mommy does!!!!! And she was being soooooooooo nice to me today, and I called her up THE MOMENT I found out, and she gave me her card number, and-- OH I AM SO FUCKING ELATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The fact that I was able to even get my hands on $40 tickets with BNL on the "bill" is fucking amazing, and to coin a phrase from my dearest Emily, I am SOOOOOOOOO about to CREAM MY PANTS right now!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's all for now... Hehehe

~Katie

P.S. Jocelyn, I am still going to try to get tickets for the show in Jersey! (Didn't want to push my luck all at once with Mommy before I knew that the show in August was taken care of.) I shall be in touch!!!!!

P.P.S. Emily, I have to give my aunt first "dibbs" on the second ticket for various reasons, the most important being that this show is going to be on her 40th birthday, and Alice is practically my "second mother." This does NOT, however, mean that I am going to let you get "away" without seeing MY goddess in concert!!!!!!! HELL NO!!! Alanis has been hinting that she'll likely be coming back around in support of "So-Called Chaos", so sit on those babies and start saving up!!!!!!!!!

[ mood | pissed off ]

After FIVE LONG DAYS, Blurty is finally up and running again. Unfortunately for Blurty, the time period during which this website was "down" happened to coincide with my ALANIS CONCERT PLANNING. I missed Emily's comment about wanting to come along, and thus kind of blew her off last night when we were talking about the concert, AND HEADS ARE GOING TO ROLL!!!!!!!!!!!!! RAAAAAARRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!! I'm switching to LiveJournal--- Blurty SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

~Katie

P.S. I'd love for you to join me at the concert, Emily.

No Se. [22 Apr 2004|01:14am]

[ music | "My Band" ~D12 ]

Oh SWEET JESUS has a lot happened since I last updated! I can't get into all of it right now, a I have my Biology final this afternoon at 1 and I need to study. However, I feel the need to make a record of some recent events/revelations while they're still fresh in my mind:

1. ALANIS IS GOING TO BE AT THE TWEETER CENTER ON JULY 18TH (OR AUGUST 9TH)... [Don't ask. The dumbasses who are supposed to be MANAGING her tour and the other dumbasses who can't seem to keep their companies' websites up-to-date are just incompetent fucks, and thus, I have to work twice as hard just to figure out when and where she is going to be.] Rumor has it that she will be co-headlining with The Barkenaked Ladies on this particular date. Ummmm yeah.... Although I enjoy BNL's stage presence (I saw them at the "Holiday Hoedown" in December '01, when Alanis was sick), the fact that they're going to be touring with her SUCKS ASS. It will be harder to get tickets at all, let alone good ones. Getting backstage? Three times as impossible. Also, I shall have to deal with the fucking fans who are only going to be there to see BNL. Other Alanis fans who sit on their fucking asses during her concerts are bad enough-- I don't need some shithead talking through the brilliance of GOD HERSELF, only to turn around and fucking rock out to "If I Had a Million Dollars." I mean, seriously, any song that includes the phrase "Fruit Roll-Up" is NOT art... I have enough trouble not committing mass murder when I see all of those unenthusiastic FUCKERS who have better seats than me at Alanis concerts... For GOD'S SAKE, Alanis kept me from seriosly considering suicide on MANY, MANY occasions!! *Grrrrrr* And the tickets are like $50... *GRRRRRRRR EVEN LOUDER* BUT I AM STILL GOING TO HAVE MY HAPPY ASS ONLINE RIGHT AT MIDNIGHT ON MAY 1ST TO BUY THE TICKETS!!!!!!

2. I FINALLY moved my shit from the dorm room back to Attleboro. Couldn't have done it without the help of my sexy Brickhouse Whores... *Kaitlin, Rose, and Jocelyn: YOU FUCKING ROCK!!!!!* Wow, what a fucking hilarious night!! Ummm... I know nothing about the elevator...or why it might have suddenly stopped working...or why, after Rose removed a certain piece of plastic, it miraculously started working again...or, umm, how that is even remotely related to then fact that my stereo is now broken... *eye twitches uncontrollably* Yeahhh... a more detailed description of our little "adventure" to come in the near future. I promise!

3. Jesus, finals week sucks balls.

4. Yeahhh that's it for now... Big day ahead of me.

[ music | "Bring Me to Life" ~Evanescence, LOUDLY to muffle the noise ]

...until I finally update this bitch. SOOO much has happened over the past few days; some of it amazing, some of it downright awful. I am going home tonight so that I will be able to drive the van back up here to Boston and FINALLY move all of this shit out of my room. It is very likely that I will be in the mood to update once I get to Attleboro, so stay tuned... Or whatever.
