I've seen maybe 3 episodes of American Idol and MacKenzie is clearly the best. But America voted him off to save a nails on a chalkboard chick, a nasal country man, and an unoriginal punk rocker. Who's angry and the world can only make up for this by making MacKenzie come out with an album? This girl.
I think you know by now that I plan WAY in advance (i.e. I already know the names of my unconceived children), so I'm already done with Mother's Day. Although I might start another project for her as she mentioned something today so I'll keep you posted. In the watering can there's gloves, 2 gardening tools, 2 types of sheers, 2 packs of bulbs, 4 herb seeds, 4 flower seeds, and a bug spray candle and garden stake. Pretty cute. Oh and fake flowers for decoration. All found at the Dollar Store. And the letter is the IOU I posted the other day. You're probably thinking "Wow, I guess she doesn't read your blog" and to that I must say "Fuck no, she doesn't know I curse like a sailor." So I keep the bad language here, with the bf, and under my breath when the situation calls for it.
I think I've finally thought of a conclusion to "Hadley" that I'm okay with. It's only right that it comes to me at 2:28 a.m. We'll see how I feel about it tomorrow when I'm not half asleep.
"Hadley" is 20 pages longer than I wanted it to be, with no title and still no ending in sight. Fuck me.
This will forever be the day known as "That time I had my first encounter with a celebrity." Mark your calendars. March 30th, 2016 @ 3:17 pm.
Now to discuss his answer . . . he's a dumbo. Not a dumbass, because he's a nice young man who responded to my question, but he's wrong. And as a musican, too! I thought FOR SURE he'd side with me since he's played music his whole life and know how important it is, but no, he still went with books. BUT WHAT ABOUT THE MUSICAL SCORE??!
And this is the direction he chose to take:
"Have you thought about adding a wizard . . . ?"
I am officially free to emerge from my quarantine and I'm about to wreak havoc. Lol. No I'm not. I'm prob not even going to leave. No that's a lie, I have to wash everything. My clothes, towels, the bedding, two times before I can use it again. Then I have to clean the basement. But if you'll remember at 2 I have a question to ask Jesse Andrews so I'm much excite.
Tried consulting the bf because I can't for the life of me think of an ending for "Hadley." Hint: I get nowhere. Read on for details:
Me: Hunny how do you end a story without killing someone or letting them live their lives peacefully to the end of their days?
Him: They come in . . . and shit gets cray.
Me: It's the 1900s.
Him: There were still bears.
Me: Not in the city.
Me: Not in the city.
Him: Oh . . . Never mind then.
Been working on a new story since the second I woke up at the buttcrack of noon. Hadn't even had breakfast yet and I had my entire story outlined. Started it after breakfast, nearly done. Thought it might be around 4 o'clock. Definitely 8 right now. But now I don't know how to end it . . . if ended successfully it will be taking the place of THE MANSION ON THE HILL in the temp tab. I'll keep you posted. Also, needs a title. You can tell I haven't thought of one when I'm calling it the name of the main character.
I do feel like it was my destiny to ask Jesse Andrews a question.
Why is everything timed so nicely with this dude? Shall I explain in recap form?
Watched "Me and Earl" for the first time week before radiation. Bf surprises me with it. Read during radiation. Finish nearing end of radiation, does a little research on Jesse Andrews, author. Sees he's doing Reddit AMA on March 30th. Two days away. Fuck. Me. I'm writing to him.
Just finished "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" the book, and I have this to say:
I am 24 years old. I've perfected how to go about reading a book. Here's the secret:
Watch the movie first.
Reasons why this is preferable: You know what the characters look like & you can picture everything without much mental thought.
Reason why this is a preferable reason: I'm a creative person. I don't like to think.
THEN you read the book, and it's awesome, especially when you like a movie, because it's like bonus material.
I feel like there's another thing I need to explain:
MOVIES ARE 100% BETTER THAN BOOKS. And anyone who says otherwise is a dumbass.
Reasoning: Movies are visual. Movies have musical scores. There is nothing more powerful and emotion provoking than music and seeing tragedy.
I was left with zero lasting impressions from the book. It had no overall meaning to it or little reasons for things. It was as true to life as fiction gets. No stereotypical romance, didn't follow the rules (i.e. introduction, call to adventure, denial, climax, plot twist, resolution). It was just there.
I was at least left with sadness and tears from the movie. It wrapped things together better, made the Rachel the Film viewing and her death more dramatic. It was very subtle, but there.
BUT the two together: Love it.
Need to acquire both DVD and hardcopy collector's edition.
The first 40 minutes are phenomenal. Wouldn't change a thing about it. After that though I lost interest, it was pretty generic war depicting, liked the twist at the end, but could've been more dramatic. Both eyes are still dry; a great film always leaves me in tears. And since we all know how little it takes for me to cry, I think that says something. BUT I LOVE James McAvoy, he is SUCH a great actor. Made me want to watch "Penelope" again which is one I've been craving lately as it's also one of my faves.
Huh. Not many thoughts on it. Had a happy ending. Liked the rain scene, where Mr. Darcy's hair was so messed up you couldn't see his gross-ass hair cut. The girls were annoying; I would definitely not be slightly lesbian in those times. Oh, and I also liked the scene with Moneypenny where Kiera Knightly tells her what's up.
And I don't care what happens. Hopefully nothing, but it was so good I don't care if I throw up for the next hour or so. It was worth it.
"Pride and Prejudice" is fictional. Girls don't giggle that much.
And it better have love in it because I can't see my bf for another week.
I just made this. It was the bf's idea a while back and I finally put it into action since I'm in quarantine and dying for a project. I mean I was really reaching, I'm planning how to decorate Dr. G's envelope for his note? Are you kidding? And now I'm planning mom's IOU letter and Mother's Day gardening basket that's not even till May? Come on. So I embarked on this kind of hoping to stay occupied for a while but it only took ten minutes.
