'I'm safe up high, nothing can touch me'

Now, if you're following Meli then you would know that she got the Twilight 'Saga' for Christmas courtesy of moi. She doesn't like it. I don't think she's finished the series, though, so lets give her some time. Here's my take on the 'Saga'. I don't like it either. I think it's stupid. To expose adolescent teenage girls to this rubbish is just foolish. They cannot run around with these ideas in their heads. I will further explain my points with references to the books.
In case you don't know about this (i.e living under a rock or in a cave, or just oblivious to everything around you), the jist of the books are this mortal teenager, Isabella Swam, aka Bella, moves to Forks (a place that's gloomy with little sunshine for the whole year....think London, England in the States) to live with her father so that her mother can travel with her new husband. There, she falls in love with a vampire named Edward Cullen. Meh, I've read this kind of crap before w/ Anne Rice. She never got this kind of publicity though. Maybe this author realised that kids/teenagers are the target audience if you want to make money (think, Wiggles, N*Sync, etc). Whatever, I fell for it.
Here are my issues with the books (I've managed to read 2 1/2 books, so far, I honestly don't know if I can finish it's hurting my head. The half was because i've been skimming through Eclipse. I can't stand to read about how much Bella nad Edward love each other. Yechhh.) So, apprently this Bella has not had a boyfriend before. So when the hottest guy in the school starts paying attention to you, you feel good, right? She even says, that he's God like in how he looks. She was obviously drawn to him for that. And the fact that everyone in school dubs the Cullens as mysterious, that must peak Bella's interest some more. Apprently, there's nothing special about the way that she looks, yet all the boys in her new school are falling over themselves trying to get to her. Ok, I understand from the book that they come from a small town, and new people don't show up often, so that could be it.
And I was reading Stephanie Meyers website, and she had a 5th book coming out, called Midnight Sun, but apparently someone posted it on the web, and now she's pissed off and might not finish it. It was just re-telling Twilight anyway, but from Edwards point of view. However, in that book, apprently Alice (his "sister" who can see into the future) predicts that Edward will fall in love with Bella. So here's my thing, if someone whom you trust and respect, tell you that you will fall in love witht his person, wouldn't try to? You know, you would see why and how and just be more interested than if you just knew her as some girl. In the beginning of the book, it was her smell that drove him insane. It was so sweet that he couldn't resist. Hell, he should've just killed her then. But that's just me.
My other thing, is that he's obsessive. How can anyone in their right mind think that it's romantic to stalk someone when they sleep and follow them around afraid to leave them alone?!?!?! Hello, that should be a sign to run away fast!!!! I think it was stupid, but it's like crack to me. I can't get enough (except for the Bella and Edward "I love you, I need you, my life sucks w/o you" crap). I'm even going so far as to try to go watch the movie. I know, it's weirding me out too.
Then he decides to break up with her because it's much too dangerous for her to be around vampires. So he leaves her all broken like and sad. Ok, at 17, we've all experienced bad break ups where we don't really want to do anything. But we've all gotten over them. I think she would have too. She had Jacob.
I don't think this was a love story. It's foolish and i'm upset that little kids are giving it such rave reviews. Please children, learn to think that you can do anything you want and you shouldn't have to rely on someone else to make you happy. It's nice to be in love, but not infatuated or in lust.
There's so much more I hate about this series, but I think i've rambled enough. You should be able to understand my dislike by now.

I'll hold the universe up, and make your planets collide.....

Step back gonna come at ya fast, I'm driving out of control, and getting ready to crash. Won't stop shaking up what I can, I serve it up in a shot, So suck it down like a man. So baby yes I know what I am, and no I don't give a damn, and you'll be loving it. Some days I'm a super bitch, Up to my old tricks. But it won't last forever. Next day I'm your super girl, Out to save the world. And it keeps gettin' better. Kiss kiss gonna tell you right now, I'll make it sweet on the lips as it can knock you out. Shut up I don't care what you say, Cuz when we both in the ring , you're gonna like it my way. Yeah baby there's a villain in me so sexy sour and sweet. And you'll be loving it. In the blink of an eye, In the speed of the light. I'll hold the universe up, And make your planets collide. When I strap on my boots, and I slip on my suit, You see the vixen in me becomes an angel for you.

'Well, tonight, thank God it's them, instead of you'

So here's my Christmas spiel. I think it's over-rated. That's not just it. There's more. I'm not going to go on and on about how people get carried away how it's only about commercial items (but they do and it is), but i'm just so frustrated. I wouldn't even do anything, personally, for Christmas if it weren't for the kids, to be honest. First of all, we live in North America and I accept that. I ♥ Canada, I really do. I think we got the better side of the deal being North Americans. But we don't clebrate Christmas. It's not my holiday. Jesus was actually born sometime in October. The nativity scene is difficult to explain. Religion all together is something that I don't want to get started on. However, I do want Baby and fatman to know and understand what Christmas represents. Not only the present that come along with it.
I think they need something to look forward, and I want to expose them to everything else going on in the world too, just so that they don't get clouded and they know that everything is not alright. However, I'm cynical and for me to try to explain the issues happening over the rest of the world, would be just as bad (if not worst) than putting them in fron of the t.v to watch CNN....wait, no, Fox News!! But everything isn't ok in the world. And it eats at me. Why should we be celebrating when people all over the world are dying. We are trivial things, like, for instance, songs about shoes for a mother making people cry, when people aren't even getting food!!! I know, tragedy is a tragedy no matter who dies or is sick or is hurt, but people don't look at it that way. That's the way it should be viewed at though!!!! There's a saying that goes, 'One person alone cannot do everything, but Everyone can do something' (this is the hypricritical part of me being exposed, b/c I do believe that I say it on the side of a Church).
Also, what the hell is with this Christmas Spirit?!?!? You can only be good to someone and go out of your way to do something nice once a year?!?!?!? Don't even get me started. The world would be a better place if we could apply these thoughts and actions year round.
I'm frustrated that people are so stupid and noone is really making a change. Maybe they're like me, and not really sure of where to start (albeit, I have done my share, and i'm still trying to do more), or maybe they're just ignorant and they're fine with that fact (again, that could be applied to be on some other issues ***hyprocritical moment....again), but we really need to do something.
No matter how bad your situation is, please remember that there is always at least someone worse off.
That's all.

Six geese a-laying

I thought I had beaten the rush by starting my shopping in October (albeit, the end of October, but nonethless). So here it is, less than a wekk until Christmas, I still have shopping to do. Not only have I not finished my shopping, I don't think there is anyone out there who I have finished my shopping for. You would think that I at least finished baby's gifts, but everywjere I go, I find things to buy her. So, no. Same can be said for Marky. I'm only getting my dad money, but I have yet to pull that out of the bank (lord hoping that I still have "X" amount TO pull out by then). My moms got her stuff, plus money too, same deal as my dad. But since her birthday she's been asking for a laptop. Trying to see how I can swing that too, maybe waiting for Boxing Day. I hope I have enough money. Meli's fairly simple, but expensive. HOW THE HELL DO I AFFORD THAT?!?! But i think she would really enjoy it. Meli's supposed to buy John's today b/c she has my debit, and yesterday I saw it after I finished paying for my stuff, but by then the line up had grown extensively. Then that's it. Oh, but wait, I have Tina's bday and Christmas present still.....

It's only half past the point of no return

I had a fun filled weekend (pics posted once Meli uploads them). However, when we got back last night, I got a pleasant (sarcasm) surprise. My motherfricking license was suspended!!! I know that I have no one to blame but myself, but I still think that it's too harsh a penalty. I mean, yes, I did get it in August (August 28 to be exact, it was Seria's orientation, that's why I remember), and yes, they did send me a reminder in November to pay it, with no extra charge. But I mean, shouldn't I have to pay when I try to renew my license plate, or my actual license or something?? But no, they frickking suspended my license. I feel like a cripple. No access to anything and i'm a bum. I have to ask for rides and I feel awful (mind you not as awful as I would if I would have to bus it, though, luv ya Meli and John aka taxi Spanjevic's :D). And right before Christmas too.
But I have another theory as to why I got this way tooo strict penalty. Remember, this guy, well to elobaorate more (for you Nikki) we were supposed to go for coffee, I forget the exact day, but lets just say here on a Thursday. Well, we agreed to meet at a coffee house maybe 10 minutes away from my house and from where I got my ticket. He was supposed to call when he got off work at 6pm. Well, I rec'd no phone on the agreed day of meeting. Well, whatever, I don't care if you are a cop or not, I don't deal w/ bullshit. Unless you're Officer Looking-Good-but-probably-married-and-somewhat-psycho-but-nonetheless-drop-dead-gorgeous. But then, I get a phone call about a month and a half later w/a message saying that he was away on training w/o access to his phone, which he lost, but through "some miracle of technology" he was able to find it. More bullshit. Whatever, no returned phone call made. I think that maybe he pulled some strings and he's teaching my a lesson. I know, i'm thinking very highly of myself, that he would go through all this trouble just b/c I didn't return his phone call, but's justa theory. So, sorry guys, won't be seeing you're unless I can walk to your place or you're willing to pick me up.

Couldn' help myself........

My Christmas List

Dear Santa,

I think I have been better than recent years, and I feel that I do not deserve a lump of coal. Heck, I've been so good, I require an aged perfectly lump of coal, preferably in pink. In case you don't get it John (b/c I know Meli does) diamonds are derived from coals....
Anyways, I've made up a list of things that I feel would best aid you in your decisions. That list includes (but does is not limited to):
1) World Peace - I think that should be mandatory as the first thing on everyones list.
2) A condo - Preferably 2 bedrooms w/ a den. Mortgage free, as I can only (barely) afford the maintenance fee on most buildings.
3) A pet - something feline or canine, leaning more so towards feline. Less maintenance.
4) Maybe a new car - A Volvo S40 is nice.....rreeeaaaalllll nice.
5) A great genie, who accepts that a girl can wish for more than three wishes.
6) World Peace - I think that should be mandatory as the last thing on everyones list.

Love ya,

Merry Christmas!!!
