"Pour Some Sugar On Me" by Def Leppard is EPIC!! Love the drummer!!!
"Here I Go Again" by Whitesnake is just amazing and also featured in Fired Up!
"You Give Love a Bad Name" by Bon Jovi is one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite bands...I love their music and they are really cool...I remember going in to a random bar on Sunset. I stood by the bar when I feel someone lean on me while talking to someone. I look around and see that there is plenty of space, so I turn around to look at the person leaning on me...who do I see??? Richie Sambora talking to Jon Bon Jovi!!! WTF!!! He looks at me smiles, and appologizes and in my head I am like NO DUDE YOU CAN STAY THERE AS LONG AS YOU WANT! He asked if I was having a good time and I smile foolishly (I rarely get starstruck but it was effing Bon Jovi!) and say yes...My friends do not realize who they are and pull me away. Both guys smile and say bye...All I could think about was how big Jon's head is!! It really is hahaha...a memory that will last a life time! Their concert was one of the best I had been to..ever!! anyways...enjoy the music, it is EPIC!! until later

"I grew up in a college town, and one Halloween our doorbell rang and we opened the door expecting to see trickortreater—but what was in front of our open door—was another door! Like, a full-on wooden door, that had a sign that said “Please knock.” So we did, and the door swung open to reveal a bunch of college dudes dressed as really old grandmothers, curlers in their hair, etc, who proceeded to coo over our “costumes” and tell us we were “such cute trick or treaters!” One even pinched my cheek. Then THEY gave US candy, closed their door, picked it up and walked to the next house. MLIA"....MLIA stands for my life is average, which is the website...mylifeisaverage.com
(you think it might have looked like this?)
Just epic...thank you H. for sending it to me on stumbleupon.com...love love love!!!! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did..until later darlings

(Akon feat Keri Hilson "Change Me")
I got a phone call today from my old boss asking me to help out at the shop because her son was getting sick. I reluctantly said yes because I know she wants me to stay there indefinitely and lord knows I went through hell just to get out. I told her I could help out every once in a while and leave an hour before they close. She looked at me and hesitantly accepted. She asked me why I could only work part time..I kindly told her I need to be home and make phone calls to the States at certain hours and work on my Law School applications, so she says....well, I will buy you a phonecard and we have a computer so you can do all that here in the shop...FUCK!!! I'M GONNA GET STUCK AGAIN!! Right before I get ready to leave one of my old regulars walks through the door. She is a lawyer and I LOVE HER!! She is a power woman yet very very elegant and someone I have looked up to since I was 16 years old....I start telling her what I have been up to the past couple of years and she totally understood me. I explained that people in Sweden do not understand I can work as a paralegal which leaves me applying for jobs like receptionist and assistant...which sucks because they only require High School diploma! I really hope I will get accepted to Law School for fall 2010 and get one step closer to my dream!! Anyways, she said that she would love to hire me but they are not offering any positions at her company but before she left she said she was going to look around and check for me...FINGERS CROSSED...MY DRY SPELL (in life haha) HAS TO END!!!! I left work and headed out to the mall (was supposed to meet up with a dear friend but because of my sudden change of plans I did not have time to meet her...ehem bitter? who me?! DUH). After a long day my feet were aching so I went home and started watching some movies.. again...
Yesterday I watched The Hangover and I was kind of disappointed. I expected to laugh my ass off but it was not as funny as the trailer showed. It was a fun movie with crazy shit happening (Alan..COME ON DUDE) but not enough I guess...I would rate it a 3/5 R's...unfortunately!! I had really looked forward to seeing that movie but my expectations were too high I suppose...Great cast though!
I also watched I Love You, Man...MAN, IT WAS HILARIOUS! I laughed so loud that my dad woke up (never usually wakes up), came to the kitchen looking pissed at me..he just gave me the death stare haha...I love Jason Segel, Paul Rudd, Adam Samberg, and many more...The witty lines, awkward scenarios, and "boys being boys", can be nothing but a HIT!! I would definitely rate it 5/5 R's haha...I know you might be thinking I give out high grades all the time but the movies I rate are movies I have been wanting to see and I am not an UPTIGHT, snobby, "think I know it all" film critic like many of them out there!! I love movies, whether they are stupid, romantic, deep, sad, and so on..I LOVE MOVIES!! Speaking of movies, The Confessions of a Shopaholic.. an ok movie..I would rate it 3/5 R's because it didn't have the little extra... The clothes were FABULOUS dahrrrling but the story, not so much! I enjoy Hugh Dacy, John Goodman, Joan Cusack and Isla Fisher's acting but it was not enough for me to really LOVE it. I probably have a bunch of fashion loving teenagers wanting to rip this entry to shreds but what can I say, this movie just didn't make the cut...With this I will leave you and hopefully enjoy yet another movie..Until later DAAHHRRRLIINGS

I can start off with The Proposal. Can I just say OH MY GOD! IT IS FUNNY!!! I would definitely rate it 5/5 R's!! I fell in love with the bitchy boss whose heart melted after spending a weekend with her assistants nutty family in Alaska. Sandra Bullock is her funny and glorious self and Ryan Reynolds is of course as gorgeous and WITTY as can be. The chemistry and the comedic timing in the movie is what makes it a wonderful flick to catch. Ryan levels out the uber-girly movie it could have been with his witty comments (specially loved the line "congratulations, I am 100 years old" haha) and how can one forget the scene with both naked actors run in to each other...CLASSIC!! Betty White makes us forget her silly self in the Golden Girls yet is still remarkably odd and oh so lovable. I have nothing negative to say but rave about the obvious brilliance. I know many of you will probably think that there is nothing special about this movie, it is a typical Hollywood flick with no depth but guess what...I say, we watch movies to get AWAY from reality!!! We want to see hopeless characters make fools of themselves throughout the movie, we want the main character to fall in love and get hurt, only to get what they want in the end!! We want to escape all the black and evil in our world...to take a break from our own problems and laugh at someone elses!!! So I say, enough with the badgering of predictable Hollywood movies, let your guard down and allow yourself to laugh...even if you may seem a little crazy haha..I know I do hehe..If you have not seen The Proposal yet I suggest you drop whatever you are doing at the moment and rent it, buy it, download it, or whatever you do and just WATCH IT! I know that I am buying the DVD because it is a perfect "stay at home on a rainy day and get comfy" movie!!
On to The Ugly Truth. Need I say that the OH SO HOT Gerald Butler and beautiful Katherine Heigl just knock it out of the ballpark. It was not as laugh out loud like The Proposal but it did make me laugh as well as absorbe what the characters are trying to convey. I think many can relate to both Gerald and Katherine's characters when it comes to love...Mike (Gerald) is a "typical" player with a hidden soft heart, beating hard to get through the rough exterior. Abby (Katherine) is a woman who believes in love but with no luck, until macho Mike turns her in to a female version of himself. Only when she becomes sensual, submissive, and a subtle freak, can she "land" the man of her dreams...but is that the right guy for her? I love how Mike makes her realize that she has the perfect guy she has been looking for but how did she get him? Was he dating the real Abby? Nope...It is a sweet movie and I highly recommend it!!! For all the people that think it sounds mushy I say, watch it if only to see Kathering have a When Sally Met Harry moment at the restaurant...one word HILARIOUS!!!! It is going to the books I can tell you!! This movie will get 4/5 R's..
Now I will return to the wonderful Isla Fisher (loved her in Enchanted) and The Confessions of a Shopaholic!! Tomorrow I am watching The Hangover..soo excited!! Until later movie lovers..

S. told me about Courteney Cox's new series, Cougar Town, so I decided to check it out. Courteney gives the performance we all have missed since Monica in Friends. S. said that when she saw the show she could totally see me like that in the future (minus the divorce, single mama, and the extreme desperation haha).
I love Jules Cobb (Courteney Cox), her neighbor Ellie (Christa Miller, also known as Cox's wife in Scrubs), Ellies husband; Andy (Ian Gomez, known from The Drew Carey Show), Laurie (Busy Philipps known from Love Inc), and the very hilarious son who actually surprised me, Travis (Dan Byrd, known from Aliens in America), Jules other neighbor Grayson (Josh Hopkins, known from Ally McBeal), and last the ex-husband Bobby (Brian Van Holt, known from Black Hawk Down). These shows and movies are just examples since I am not reviewing their careers haha. All these are familiar faces and their comedic timing is flawless (according to me that is haha). The show depicts a woman's point of view when in a relationship with a younger man, and all the crazy haha. You should watch the show and I think you'll enjoy it. I know I can't wait for another episode to air. Last night I sat alone in the kitchen watching the show at 2 am, trying so hard to suppress my laughter, which did not always work! The cast has great dynamic and it is very entertaining, it will not disappoint you!
Right now I hear Nala chewing on something so I better check it out before any damage is done....Until later darlings

I am so excited!!!! I am going to my first UNICEF volunteer meeting today. I am dragging my sister D. with me because I want her to see what is going on out there and that she can help in other ways than to just send in money. I respect people that are members and donate a certain amount of money, it is needed, but since I don't have a dime to spare (because I do not have a dime at all haha) I think it is better to actually get in the whole process and know where all the money is actually going. There are several events coming up and the first ones are attending a gala for the children in need (tickets are given to first come first serve, and since I have just started I did not even opt to get them because I feel that people that are more active should have the right to get them) and then we are going to IKEA and just stand there in case someone wants to learn about the projects UNICEF does and how we help the kids all around the world. I am so proud to be a part of this team and hopefully I will be able to be active and raise awareness and money to help the children all over the world. I think you should go to their website and maybe see how you can help, there are most likely teams in your area as well. Look them up and join if you have the time and means, it won't hurt but rather add to your experiences. If you do not have UNICEF anywhere near your area check out other organizations that need volunteers because they are needed and if we don't take care of our society and world then who will? At least if we help we will know where all the money, help and so on goes. Instead of sitting at home and watching the people in need on the TV, and think aawww how sad, we can put that energy into actually make a change. It may be a small change but nevertheless it is a change. I can almost guarantee that you will feel better after your first event with your organization. Thinking of the people in need is great but doing is priceless...I will leave you with that and hope to see more people involved!! I am even thinking about starting something for the kids here, kids on the streets that cannot afford after-school activities, but I am still in the plan process. When I have figured out on how to go about things I will let you know about my whole idea. I hope it will work out, but for now I am lending a helping hand to those that need it! Until later lovelies

Me: "Hi, I am here to see H.C"
Lady: "Oh yes, fill this out please and when did you say your meeting was?"
Me: "At 4 pm"
Lady: "Oh, ok....oh wow, you are an hour too early! Well, can I take your picture for work purposes?"
Me: "Uhm, yea sure go ahead"
I wait for an hour, watching people walk in and walk out. I look out the window and see two birds. One of them starts hacking in to a McDonalds bag, pulling out papers and straw until it reached the food. They both started gulping down burgers and fries. The whole scene made me smile and think about how even animals have gotten addicted to fast food!
Finally it was 4 pm. Ten minutes later H.C comes out and starts talking to a woman, thinking she is me. Best part; she does not correct him! WTF!!! The lady by the frontdesk tells him I am his client. It turns out that the other woman knows his brother and they start talking. HELLO I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR AN ENTIRE HOUR SO PLEASE DO NOT MAKE ME WAIT ANY LONGER!!!!! Finally he comes up to me, after I stood up and sat back down again. The interview could begin. When we were done he thought I was a really good candidate for the job and as soon as the company gets an ok to hire someone new from the board they will call me for another interview. I am hoping for the best but all I can say is that I walked out with my head held high and felt really good about my performance. I came home late and tired but very pleased!! Lets hope for the best..
Now, I am headed to the library to find a better way to make the day pass. Love me some good literature haha. Until later darlings

Hello all you wonderful people out there in the world. I have been sick for...I have lost the count of days..and it feels like it will never go away. Every day it is something new, today my ears wanted to join the protest my body has been on; not functioning. I honestly don't feel like 25 but 55. I think whatever I am having (the illness that is) is playing a trick on me. You might wonder why I am even sitting by the computer because it seems as though this illness is making me delusional but humor me for a minute. One day I feel so bad that thinking hurts, all I want to do is stay in bed..BUT, the next day, I feel like I am instantly getting better (like yesterday)! I get up and go with my dad and sister and buy TOO much candy. This is the interesting part, I go to sleep feeling like I am finally getting better only to wake up to feeling worse than the day I thought I was feeling bad. This illness is giving me false hope every day that passes. It acts as a guy giving mixed signals to a girl...my illness is giving me MIXED signals. Even my illness acts like a crappy dude!!
This is to universe; I understand that love may not be for me, or wealth, or any sort of success in the professional sphere, can't even land a job! I can accept that, but can I at least have my health? Is that too much to ask for? Am I too needy? Ugh, I don't know!! What I do know is that I should hit the sack before I fall down and won't be able to post this. Until later..maybe...(I know I know, drama queen!! But this only happens when I am really sick or when my illness gets me all confused so bear with me here on this one :P)
