Goodbye Michael Jackson

I am so shocked right now. Michael Jackson had a heart attack and is now dead.

I used to listen to his music and dance to his music videos and everything, when everyone else would be listening to the spice girls or whatever.

Me and my sister would do the Thriller dance. And I totally wanted to go to a concert of his.

Come to think of it, he was pretty the only pop artist I really listened to until the endish of middle school

A brilliant performer and musician.

About 10% of my iPod has his music. I Think I want to go watch the WIZ now or our DVDs of his videos or something.

Can you say great?

I'm not going to deny, I'm sure the guy had some intense psychological issues, seeing as his father made the Jackson 5 perform at strip clubs when he was like 5, so he could get them out of Gary, Indiana and once they made a hit record, they never stopped. He wanted to be talked about all the time, no matter what it was for because I think he was obsessed with his fame and couldn't bear to fade from it gracefully. I wouldn't be surprised if this death thing was all fake and he popped out of some house somewhere and went "SIKE" because, check iTunes. ALL of his albums are back at the tops of the charts. I think he would have been thrilled to pieces about that. But yeah, I think now that he's at the pearly gates or the spirit world or wherever he will get a reality check from someone up there. I mean Michael, you're great and I love your stuff, I like the twinkly gloves and socks and the cool outfits, and your music and all that, But THIS

is taking it a little far. Crazy crap like this was all in his house. I think he needed to get a reality check, and he is sure to get one, now that he's dead.

Hopefully some of his dancing talent will fall upon me. Heaven knows I need better dancing skills.

New haircut

So a couple days ago I got an impulse haircut.



I like it. My sister said it looked motherly... not the look I was going for thats for sure.

I need to move more. My job keeps me pretty sedentary and when I get home all I want to do is sleep. not good.

UP up and away

(Spoilerific Post. You have been warned)
So I finally saw UP in theaters today, and I honestly can't decide what I think of it.
Was it a good movie?
Would I want to buy it on DVD?
Not sure.

My reasoning behind it, is that It hat me totally weepy right at the end of that first montage. That is not to say I hate movies with sadness in them. I REALLY like Bambi, and to me that is one of the most touching death scenes ever. Also I really like Titanic and Moulin Rouge which both end very tragically. but UP had me tearing up more than once. The reason I think for it I think was because. Carl's life was very real. As much as I hate to admit it, Most likely, one spouse or the other is going to go before the other one (Unless you're like those fools in the Notebook) It was even more sad, because Carl's love for Ellie was still as strong as it was at the beginning, and when she died he totally was missing part of himself.
Also when he got the court summons that was really sad for me too, just because of his facial expression.
And when Russell was confessing about how his dad sort of ditched him and when he didn't show up to the wilderness explorer thing, It was SO sad to me.

Kevin was cute though.

Also Dug was adorable.

The colors were fantastic, and the nuances in the changes in saturation were excellent.

I loved their attention to detail. Making Carl's beard kind of grow, and Dug's paw's dirty and everything.

Bravo Pixar for making a great movie. Even if it's not my kind of tear-jerker.

Sweeping Mines

At work, I have taken to playing a lot of mine sweeper. I think I will be a pro at it by the end of the summer. The next time there is a huge war, they should let me, and JK Rowling go out and find mines (Apparently she plays it a lot and is really good at it. Who knew?). Today I was extremely tired when I went to work on account of me not being able to sleep for some reason or another last night, so I went down to the basement, flipped on the TV to Disney Channel, and went to sleep.
I awoke to my mom being annoying about how I had spilled packing peanuts on the floor and needed to clean them up, and also she was mad at me for getting makeup on her towel.

You see, yesterday I went to the singles ward, and I don't normally wear makeup at all but I have been watching Mad Men a lot lately. Its a show about men in the business of advertising all during 1960. All of them cheat on their wives. All of them smoke, and drink constantly. Even the pregnant ladies. Th women get no respect, and they see Jewish people as a completely different people. Its very interesting to watch, in that less-cheesy-than-a-soap-opera-but-just-as-addicting kind of way. Anyway, Don Draper, can be summed up in this video, and actually the whole vibe of the show as well:

He has/had this assistant named Peggy, and she, compared to the other girls looks awful with her lank hair and nasty bangs,and her pale, colorless face. I did not want to look like Peggy on my first visit to the singles ward. Since first impressions are really important, and lately I want to make everyone think I'm really chic and classy. I did not realize this when I was in middle school , or indeed most of high school, so I walked around wearing too-big shirts, and had my hair out of control. (at my hair in a ponytail used to be as big as my head. Looking back at photos from that time makes me cringe) As a result I think everyone thought of me as this huge dork/nerdy person. So now its time to throw away that image, and start anew. So, to do that I needed to cover up my nasty acne scars. and I spilled that dumb Bare Minerals makeup everywhere, and got it on my mom's white covers. and like an idiot, when I couldn't dust everything off I rubbed it in with a wet towel which naturally just made it worse. I am 19. You'd think I'd know better by now. Anyway, when I decided that I did enough damage I wiped my palms, which by this point were unnaturally brown from trying to do damage control, on my moms towel, and had to high tail it out of there. And thats the story of why my mom was mad at me this morning....

Anyway I went to work wearing black pants, a white shirt and penny loafers a la Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face

I feel like I can only wear penny loafers if I have recently seen Funny Face because, I feel like they are kind of old person shoes. At least mine are patent leather so it youths them down a little.

At work I sad and played minesweeper, and did nothing until the owner was like "are you keeping busy?"
I was like "Oh ya" which is a lie, but the work folder she has me do makes me want to shoot myself. Figuratively of course. The spreadsheets and shortening the word "Lane" to "Ln" or "Avenue" to "Ave" in the addresses so they can spend less money on ink.

its so boring,
