Makes you think...
Whiny children grow up to be rigid and conservative;
confident self-reliant kids grow up to be liberals,
according to a 20 year Berkeley University study.

I'm excessivly bored tonight, and seriously regretting my decision to "take it easy and finish my laundry" tonight.

If you are as bored as I am:

And if you didn't find that strange enough
Jason, Red Ranger, from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is now a gay porn star:

Dear Friends,

I confess that yesterday I went to an Ashlee Simpson concert. I understand if this means we can no longer be friends.

A first attempt
I keep my secrets
In a little box
Under my bed
Dust bunnies congregate
Staring, judging
The melon shaped fuzz
Continue on their way
Their criticism is no match for my vacuum

I don't know who I would choose between if I were Guinevere; Lancelot or Arthur. Julie and I watched First Knight the other day, and it got me thinking. I really don't know who I would pick.
I mean in the movie she loves Arthur but she doesn't have that passion, it's more of a companion love, that feeling of being absolutely comfortable around someone, having the same goals and dreams.
Then there is Lancelot and the passion, the fire and the feeling of being so connected to someone you can sense their every emotion and each sensation enhances your own feelings.

So who would you pick?

I love having Julie back I forgot how much fun we have together. I also forgot how nice it is to be able to get annoyed with someone, which I frequently do, tell them off, take some time apart then hang out again and forget the whole thing ever happened. Let's face it we get annoyed with most people but 99% of the time we say nothing, it's just nicer that way. Well I love how refreshing it is to be able to tell someone exactly how you feel and not worry about how it will change your relationship.

So all in all, live is good right now spare a few confusing and hard decisions (but those are personal :))

After nearly a month of my computer refusing to log onto the internet I have access once again. I've felt so detached, though I was running more before hmm... Maybe this wasn't such a good thing.

I have been up at 5 am everyday this week, once because I was up till then, once because I had work at 6, once because Julie sadistically made me and Alex go hiking, and now because I can't sleep.

I dyed my hair again. This time it's "french roast" it's pretty much my natural color. Although I've had fun changing my hair color almost monthly I think I'm done with it all.

Ok, off I go for a run before work.

Current Mood: restless

I stumbled across some of my drawings and notes from high school.   I'd forgotten how young and innocent I was once.  I'd forgotten how young and innocent I still am.

I was grouchy today and even my run didn't clear it up.  I couln't find a song that matched my mood and even at 2am it was still 100 degrees outside.  I hate grouchy days and I'm sure those around me do as well; I'm irratable, snappy and nothing seems to make it better.

On a lighter note I've almost downloaded every Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers episode as well as all the Freakazoid episodes.  Still no luck on Darkwing Duck and TaleSpin, I would be forever in your debt if you own or know someone who owns any of those shows so I could get the m on my computer.

At least my Chinese homework is finally done and I can get some sleep.

Incidentally Squirrel is a funny word.

Current Mood: irritated

This summer has been rather uneventful.

Every day is nearly the same:
Monday to Tuesday- work in the mornings, Chinese class in the afternoons. Either going home to nap/do homework/ eat or going out with friends/classmates to eat or do homework (I know, I lead a very exciting life). Come home at night, go for a midnight run, stay up till 4am doing more work then finally going to bed.

Annd on the weekends I work at Victoria's in the mornings (usually) and H.Viddy at night. Sometimes it switches.

So there you go. The true reason I've yet to do a proper update; nothing interesting is going on this summer.

Maybe tomorrow I'll play hookie and go swimming. Hmmm.

Current Mood: thirsty

Rows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air,
And feather canyons everywhere,
I've looked at clouds that way.
But now they only block the sun,
They rain and snow on everyone.
So many things I would have done,
But clouds got in my way.

I've looked at clouds from both sides now,
From up and down and still somehow
It's clouds' illusions I recall;
I really don't know clouds at all.

Moons and Junes and ferris wheels,
The dizzy dancing way I feel,
As every fairy tale comes real,
I've looked at love that way.
But now it's just another show,
You leave 'em laughing when you go.
And if you care, don't let them know,
Don't give yourself away.

I've looked at love from both sides now,
From give and take and still somehow
It's love's illusions I recall;
I really don't know love at all.

Tears and fears and feeling proud,
To say I love you right out loud,
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds,
I've looked at life that way.
But now old friends are acting strange,
They shake their heads and they say I've changed.
Well something's lost but something's gained,
In living every day.

I've looked at life from both sides now,
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall;
I really don't know life at all.

. Take a look at your DVDs. Who or what do they remind you of?

Chappelle's Show Seasons 1 & 2- Matt and I cracking up and singing along with "I Wanna Pee On You"  and Matt's realization that he works for Popcopy.
Curb Your Enthusiasm Seasons 1, 2, and 3 - Again Matt and I and him calling me the female Larry David.
Freaks and Geeks- My high school years, kind of.
13 Going on 30- Matt, because Jennifer Garner calls Mark Ruffalo Matty.
Amelie- Chris, it was the first movie we saw together. 
Anchorman- My uncle Charlie, I don't know why I think it is because he and my dad have a sense of humor that is eerily similar to this movie.
Beauty and the Beast-  Two things, my first grade teacher, AJ, because I though she and Belle were the same person, and my mom kidnapping me and my sisters and taking us to see this movie when it first came out in theaters.
Big Fish- My grandpa, and my dad.   When we were little and camping over the summers my dad would tell us girls the story of Cowboy Bob and Sailor Jim.  They always had adventures wherever we were camped.
Blazing Saddles- My uncle Don.  He would tell me stories of my great uncle who was a rodeo champion and a rancher, they weren't always funny stories but the majority of the stories were.
Braveheart- Julie, she was obsessed with it when we were younger.  I finally saw it when it was playing at Valley Art, with Julie.
Caddyshack- H.Viddy.  We are the modern day caddies.
Chocolate- I always wanted to be a drifter of sorts.  Become an enigma and travel throughout the world with no real home.
Dave- Matt, he is the first person who not only has heard of this movie but owns it as well.  It's how I know we were meant for each other.
Dodgeball- Mr. Epstein, he is White Goodman, he was my 6th grade gym teacher who was about 5'1'' and had one of the worst Napoleon complexes I've ever seen.
Easy Rider- Hannah, I first saw it with her, and my dad, he owned a low rider and cruised around the country.
Ever After- Middle School.  I was obsessed with this movie when it came out.  I still am.
Gone With the Wind- My mom.  It's her favorite book, and my AP US History class.  Sister Nancy played the movie after our AP test and we didn't have enough time to finish it.
Hero- Wo shi shuo Zhongwen ye na wo shi conming. Haha.
Hook- My childhood.   I watch this movie nearly every day.
I Heart Huckabees- How much I hate it when indie movies become mainstream.  DAMN YOU NAPOLEON DYNAMITE and that piece of shit GARDEN STATE!!!
Igby Goes Down- Sadly, that I think people who revel in their depression are weak, and that I loath weakness in both myself and others. (I know I shouldn't think that way...)
Life Aquatic- Being an ass is cool. (also see above)
The Little Mermaid- I always asked my mom if I could grow up to be a mermaid someday.  She always told me, "you can be anything you want to be Katie."
National Treasure- Some movies can be so nonsensical, stupid and inane they transcend shittiness and are great.  This and Alien V. Predator are two good examples. (Ps, I only bought this copy because it cost me two dollars)
Never Been Kissed- Me in Junior High.  I was a huge geek.  I was on the cusp of it being cool to be smart, when my sisters were in middle school you were cool if you were in advanced math.  The kids in my grade didn't think so.
The Philadelphia Story- Matt and I.
The Princess Bride- Chris and I, it was our movie, that and the Graduate.
The Quiet Man- My grandpa 100%.  I still cry when I see this move, it hits way too close to home even though it's been over 6 years since he died.
The Royal Tennenbaums- That I never want to be rich.
Say Anything- My sister Mary, she is the real life Diane Court
The Secret of NIMH- how some childhood movies should stay in your childhood simply because as you grow up you realize they make no sense what so ever.
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers- My mom and Neighbor Sandy singing along to this movie as we watched it.
Sideways- My Cousin/friend of the family/ whatever he is Allen.  His cynical look on life destroyed him.
Sleeping Beauty- Every one of my knight in shining armor dreams.
When Harry Met Sally- Love and the Christian Vocation class Senior year at Xavier and Ms. Ertl swooning over this movie.
Woman of the Year- Matt, he bought it for me.
Zoolander- Again my Uncle Charlie because he surprised me by loving this movie almost more than I do.  (he can quote it better than me as well).
The Complete James Bond Collection (if I did every title this thing would go on way to long) - James Bond is the shit.

2.  Tag five others to do the same.
It's your turn,

I'm in love.

With a man named Matt.

We've been dating for a year as of yesterday.

I never dreamed I could be this happy, if only he were here right now.

It's Been A Long Time, I Know.
It's official: I'm living with my twin Alexander Silva next year. (We were both born 12-03-1984 in Desert Sam's Hospital). His parents bought him a condo off Rural between Lemon and Terrace; I could SOMERSAULT to class it's so close! Since Alex and I get along so well I know it will be really easy to live together. I move in July 1st. Now to tell Mattie...

I picked up another day job, mornings at Victoria's Secret. I love it, all the girls are so sweet and I've already taken advantage of not only the Victoria's Secret discount but my mall discount as well. YES! In summation: H.Viddy+V.S.+Babysitting (at 15$ an hour tax free)=Rich Katie. (If I don't blow it all away on lingerie that is).

I ended up going to court last week and pleading guilty to a reduced sentence of illicit speeding (versus teh Criminal speeding that was on my ticket) and paid 170$ to the City of Phoenix. I escaped having to not only waste my Saturday morning at traffic school but getting points on my license as well. Not to mention the exact same asshole cop who pulled me over pulled over the lady I babysit for the next day. Not only did he threaten/harass her too but he did it infront of her kids who were in the car. I wish I could get away with kicking that fucker in the balls. Maybe it'd bring him down a notch, I think the whole motorcycle cop/being able to harass women and make children cry thing gives him the impression his dick is a few inches longer than it actually is. One swift kick should rectify that problem.

Chinese is going extremely well so far I've aced every test and assignment and I can carry on a basic hello, how are you? I am Katie. I like to buy things etc. conversation fairly well.

I've been riding my bike everywhere. I LUH IT! I've come to adore the gritty, sweaty look. Not to mention the muscle gain you get from riding 10+ miles in 110 degree weather. Just call me the modern day Phidippides, except instead of running, biking.

Well, here it comes: I MISS MATT SO GODDAMNED MUCH! It looks as though he may be coming home a lot earlier than planned and he will be bringing a few of his friend from NY. I CAN'T FUCKING WAIT! Our one year anniversary is coming up pretty soon. He and I aren't big on celebrating anniversaries, mostly because we both suck at keeping secrets and can't stand waiting for presents. So instead of really celebrating our anniversary we are going to save our money and get a room at the Bellagio for my 21st birthday. The reservations will be made next week. A little under Six months, I am sooooo very excited.

Well, It's time for bed seeing as it's 5am and I have to be at VS in three hours. Fuuuuun shit.

OH I ALMOST FORGOT! Soo, my mom decided she wanted another cat. She got one.
May I introduce Peanut:

(taken on my NEW camera phone woo!)
Night all!

I dislike people who "sign off" on live journal i.e.:

Fuck Off.

- Elle

ps. Shortening your name is the opposite of cool. Which happens to be not (cool).

pps. My new name is CeeCee.

ppps. I found the life journal of Matt's ex. (the one who cheated on him)

pppps. My foot is asleep and I need to bite something.

ppppps. My dad brought me a tomato and broccoli pizza. It was really good!

pppppps. I think doing a bunch of ps's is worse than signing off.

Current Mood: groggy

It's nearly 2am. Matt and I are pulling an all nighter. Well technically Matt is the one with the work, I'm the moral support.

I worked two hours today.  It's easy shifts such as the one today that remind me why I truly love my job. 

Apparently my friend Trina's kid is the bully in school.  She punched a girl in the face who pulled her pigtails.  It reminds me of back in the day when I used to kick boys in the shins for no reason.  And whne I was in Kindergarten and bragged to my parents about hitting a mean fifth grader while swinging on the swings.  And no, not the modern day swing,  I'm talking the metal beast from way back when. 

I actually can't find any image of them online, maybe one of you can.  They were big metal swings that you sat in, it had a metal bar across the back and front holding you in and another metal bar that broke into two handle bars that you pushed and pulled to swing yourself.

I just asked Matt how to describe those swings so I could do a google image search, his reply, "I don't know, air trolley"

Back to work I suppose.
