I haven't really updated here in a while because I switched over to livejournal. I think it is a lot easier and people are actually posting to the communities! Wow... imagine that. But, yeah, customizing my journal was a lot easier also. I have a Clara Bow background over there now! I probably will not be updating here for a while. I might come back, who knows, but I'll be posting mostly at: www.livejournal.com/users/missbelmont

Grrrrrrrrrrrr, I hate getting my period. I always feel fat, bloated, and gross. Coffee isn't even making me feel better, the elixer of life itself! I even mixed in hot chocolate and strawberry syup to make it extra nummy and nothin', notta, zip. I still feel bleh.

I don't have an extreme amount of homework tonight so I think I'll watch Yankee Doodle Dandy. I love that movie, James Cagney is so cool. I just got the two disc dvd edition thingy of that movie last Friday. The special features disc is neat-o. (sorry, I had a strange urge to say neat-o) Michael J. Fox does the narration for James Cagney's biography.

I think I'll go now.... Can't really think of what to say at the moment. Just felt like expressing my feeling's of blah-ness at the moment. Bye.

Extended Family Definition: Strangers who kiss you on the cheek [23 Jan 2004|08:09pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]
[ music | Nena ~ 99 Red Balloons ]

Bah, I haven't updated in a while even though I said I was going to. Well, last weekend was pretty eventful. My great Aunt Margie died and I went to her funeral. She had stomach cancer and was in a lot of pain towards the end. She was probably the only person I knew in my extended family since I was a baby. I did get to meet other people on my Dad's side last weekend though. After the funeral we went over to my other Great Aunt Charlotte's house. There I met a bunch of cousins, Larry (I forget the relation), and a couple of other ladies that I suppose I am related to. It's a depressing thought that mot families only get together during deaths. That's what happens in our family usually. We go to a wake of someone I didn't even know and chit-chat with people who are strangers/family while there is a dead body a few feet away. Margie didn't ask for a wake and I am so glad. I hate seeing people I didn't know dead, I'd probably cry if I saw her laying there. The week before Margie died, Barbara died and I had to see her at a wake. I don't remember her but it creeps me out looking at people like that.

While I was over at Charlotte's she was forcng me to eat donut's and twinkies, hehe. I didn't want to make her feel bad so I took them anyway. I always feel a bit uncomfortable around these people. I know they are my family but, I don't know them. My dad does, obviously, but while they are talking about other relatives I just sit there staring at my shoes. I never knew my grandparents, they all died before I was born. I've never even met my dad's brothers and sisters. Oh, and someone is organizing a family reunion in March. That'll be interesting. I'm thinking that everyone will all be in their little cliques or groups of people that they know. I am also predicting a lot of cheek kissing and hugs from people I have never seen before in my life. It's even creepier when they know your name....

Well, maybe I'll actually be able to form relationships with these people. Or we'll meet, barbecue, eat and then never see eachother again or until the next death. Yippie...... eh, maybe I'll bring a book, and cd's are definately a must. I'm really into one-hit wonders right now. I've been listening to Nena ~ 99 Red Balloons over and over again, heh. Oh, and can't forget Wham's Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go. I think I'm going to get my homework done so I don't have to think about it this weekend.... Bye

I finally got a new computer! Whoo hoo! My other one kinda broke about a week ago. Now I can finally do stuff, my other computer was way too slow and it kept locking up. I'll probably try and catch up with the communities I'm in tomorrow, I don't have time tonight. Oh, and before I go I need to do a shameless plug for my community again :D Please join: www.blurty.com/community/classic_comedy I don't have man people yet so I would be forever grateful if you joined. You can talk about any of the classic comedians from pre-1970. You can also talk about tv shows, movies, share quotes, make icons, anything as long as it is comedy from pre-1970.

Please join! (Shameless plug over) Bye

I'm sick!!!!!! I've had a fever for the past four days and I know that can't be good. I also didn't get any sleep last night because I couldn't stop coughing. I really don't want to go to the doctor though. I can't stand doctor's offices and hospitals. Oh dear, my eyes are watering terribly. I'm going back to bed....

Feral Children [22 Dec 2003|07:47pm]
[ mood | sick ]
[ music | The Bangles ~ Walk Like An Egyptian ]

:( I haven't posted in a while. But, I have Christmas break now so... Whoo hoo. Actually, I'm suppose to be going to school tomorrow but, I'm kinda not. I mean seriously, we should have Christmas Eve Eve off.

Well, this isn't very Christmas-y but I've been reading about the Victorian era today and I came across this website: http://www.feralchildren.com/en/index.php It's tells about feral children which were children who were either raised by animals or confined by themselves for most of their "developing" years, resulting in their inability to speak as well as their poor social skills & behavior. in almost all cases, the child is unable to interact in the "human world" after being rescued, & usually spends most of his or her life aching to return to the wild or to its place of confinement. Very rarely do the children ever learn to speak or "fit in" with the rest of society. it's really fascinating, and sad too.

I have a headache so I should be getting off the computer. I think I'm getting sick too, bleh. Well, it'll be the third year in a row that I've been sick for Christmas, at least I'm not breaking the tradition, bye.

Men in Suits *Sigh* [11 Dec 2003|06:56pm]
[ mood | cold ]
[ music | Don't Fence Me In ~ Bing Baby and the Andrew Sisters ]

Hmmm, have you ever noticed how sexy a man looks in a suit? I wish men would wear suits more often... It's probably the reason I joined speech team, hehe. They have to wear suits to the meets, I get to dress up too and hopefully I'll get to wear my I Love Lucy neck tie this time. I'm in the discussion category and our topic this year is poverty. Really riveting topic isn't it?

I should probably get to work on my document reviews for AP. It seems every time I write in my journal now is to avoid something, hehe. Oh well, if I weren't writing in this I'd be doing something else to avoid it. Also, procrastination seems to work for me. Every essay that I have written at the last minute I've gotten at least a 98% on it. That's really messed up, everything that I put time and thought into I get a worse grade than if I had left it till the last minute. Maybe I should just stop thinking....

Yay!! I won a couple of books off ebay and they were less than a dollar each! Whoo hoo! The first one was: Bob Hope: Don't Shoot it's Only Me and The Complete Works of Edgar Allen Poe. I'm probably a little over excited about books but seriously, one was fifty cents and the other was only twenty-five cents!

Okay, I'll leave you with, yes, men in suits....

Bing Crosby, Bing Crosby, Bing Crosby, Bing Crosby [04 Dec 2003|05:44pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]
[ music | Zat You Santa Clause ~ Louis Armstrong ]

I'm sad, I haven't had time to post in a very long time. I've been so busy, and I actually am suppose to be typing my expository essay on gender role reversals in screwball comedies but I'm a horrible procrastinator so that probably won't be happening for at least another hour or so... Man, only a couple of seconds into my update and already I'm rambling, I guess I'm bad that way...

Uumm, let's see, I am now obsessed with Bing Crosby. Yep, but I have no money to buy any of his movies or cds. And why is it that you can only find him on Christmas cd's? He sang normal songs too! Come on... get it together people. But I did find Going My Way at the Library (haha, free rentals... I'm so cheap) I also spent my last bit of money on Road to Morroco. Yay, now I have all of the "Road to.." movies except Road to Singapore. I can't find that anywhere. I saw it on ebay once but it was vhs and I'm picky and I want the dvd. My parents just bought White Christmas too and I've been watching that just about every night while I do my homework.

Ugh, I guess I should start typing my essay. And I picked a really good topic, it's just I'm opposed to anything school related at the moment. I like to write and read but not if I have to have it done on a certain date. So, if I become an authoress my publisher will get very angry at me, I hate deadlines, hehe... Bye bye.

Okay, well, I don't have time to update, but I am anyway. Well, just to say hi anyway. So... Hi journal! Gah, I'm pathetic, I have to go do my neverending AP homework now, bye bye.

P.S. I actually have a lot to say too, but no time to say it, *sigh*

I have to write a personal narrative for one of my writing classes. It has to be about a specific experience that changed me somehow as a person. And because I'm me I can't think of one. I have no memory what-so-ever. All I can think of are vague occurences and none of them have "changed" me. It's due tomorrow and I'm running on blank. I was out til 1:00 am last night so that isn't helping my brain power too much. I also need to study for my history test on Thursday. We have a test every week on three or four chapters from the book which would be about 70 to 80 pages. Gah! I'm just feeling a little overwhelmed at the moment. I just put on the Beatles to calm me down a bit. Maybe if I learned to relax I could think of something....

My tummy hurts!! [04 Nov 2003|06:01pm]
[ mood | drained ]
[ music | Komeda ~ It's alright, baby ]

Waah!! My image hoster just went kaplooie on me. All I did was try to delete one picture and now the rest of the pics that I have ever posted are all red x's now. Plus, I can't load anymore pics because I have no money to pay for the upgraded version. So I have twenty-one icons in my computer for the retro icons community and now I can't even post them. Blah...

I also keep getting stomach aches everytime I try to eat something. I think it's because I have such a bad eating schedule. I wake up at 6:00 am have a biscotti with my coffee, 6 hours later I have a small lunch (because I despise cafeteria food), and then 6 hours after that I am so starving when I get home that I eat everything in sight. Well, not everything. I just had a plate of chow mein and a lot of chips and salsa, and I am contemplating eating a cookie. But my stomach really hurts so I probably won't.

Okay, I am going to go bid on ebay with money that I don't have. But that's okay because I'll just bid on the auctions that end in 6 days, I'll probably have money by then.... hopefully. Bye.

New Icon [28 Oct 2003|05:01pm]
[ mood | tired ]
[ music | Frank Sinatra ~ I've Got YOu Under My Skin ]

I'm so proud of my new icon, hehe.

I didn't go to school today because I only had two hours of sleep. Plus, I heard it wasn't a good sign when you started seeing two of everything. Right now I have a headache, and I'm a little dizzy. I guess I'll have to tough it out for school tomorrow.

Does anyone remember the old nintendos? I just found mine from a loooong time ago in the basement. I hooked it up and started playing Super Mario Bros 3. I died right away, I haven't played video games since I was seven. I have a game genie with it that will give you infinite lives but I have to figure out how to use it first. Man, if I'm not up to date with technology from 1985 I don't know how I'm even able to use this computer, lol.

Well, the screen is starting to hurt my eyes I'm going to go, bye.

I LOVE the movie High Society!!!! [26 Oct 2003|07:36pm]

I feel so bad for not updating very much. I have been so busy with school. It's the end of the quarter and whatever the teachers have been piling on the homework. Just looking at my agenda from last week makes me dizzy. Every empty space on the two pages is filled with projects, tests, and assignments that have been due. I just finished two essays that are due tomorrow from one class. I still have a little more homework from math and communications.

For communications I have to give an informative speech and I'd like to be able to give my speech tomorrow. But first I have to write the speech and research. If I go tomorrow I will have it over with and also the first people to volunteer get extra credit which is cool.

Okay, right now I have to take a quick shower, then finish the rest of my homework. Oh! I also have to read two chapters in the driver's ed handbook, oh well, I'll just read them during class tomorrow. Bye!

P.S. I love the movie High Society with Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly, and Frank Sinatra!!!!!!

If you breathe too loudly, you're out of the class..... [20 Oct 2003|07:02pm]

[ music | The Ramones ~ Gabba Gabba Hey ]

Okay, I haven't updated in a few days now and this post will be pretty short since I am so busy right now. Okay well, I got my hair permed on Friday and I was able to wash it last night. Me, thinking that if I use too much conditioner my hair will just straighten out like it did last time used like a pea size of conditioner in the shower. Well, this morning my hair was a frizzball. I tried leave-in conditioner, mousse, frizz reduction gel, hair spray and nothing would work. But at the moment my hair is stringy from all of the stupid products and it's frizzy. Grr, stupid hair.

Oh well, I don't have time to worry about that right now. Tonight I have to study for my PSATs tomorrow, prepare my informaive speech for Friday, type up a horror story due on Wednesday, start and finish a math test/project due on Wednesday, read The Birthmark by Nathanial Hawthorne for my Mystery/Horror class, do my daily homework assignment in math, and practice for my choir test. Why oh why do I have to be such a horrible procrastinator? I'm not stressed out about any of this at the moment though because I've decided not to think about it. Of course, not thinking about it leads to procrastination. Then it just goes round and round in a viscious circle.

Ugh, and I had my first driver's ed class today. It's after school from 2:10 to 5:00 Mondays through Fridays for a three weeks. And since my parents eat dinner at 4:00 my dinners throughout that time will consist of tomato soup and ramen noodles. Oooh, goody. I can only have one absence from the class and being a couple of minutes late to class counts as half an absence. Grrrr, oh and here's a dilly: If you rest your head in your hand you're out of the class, if you lay your head on the desk you're out of the class, if you bring food or drink you are out of the class, if you talk you are out of the class, if you annoy the teacher you are out of the class.... see where I'm going woth this? And all of this crap costs $250!!! This is going to suck.

Okay, I said this was going to be short but I ranted and now it's long. If there are spelling/grammatical errors, not my fault because I'm in a hurry right now, sorry. I have to go, bye.

This practically sums everything up right now:

"Here's a good exercise: place your head between your knees. Cover your head with your hands and rock back and forth slowly, chanting: Oh my god."
