we can't all be angels

Date: May 26
Mood: spontaneous
Listening To: 'Diamonds' by Breathe Carolina
Famous People Born Today: 1907 John Wayne, 1920 Peggy Lee, 1951 Sally Ride, 1964 Lenny Kravitz


alright so let me make a declaration.
*light bulb overhead* like david cook!
me and lily-pagan just saw star trek for the 3rd time earlier. and i was reading dcas's blog and she loves it, too.
*Aretha head* so before anyone says it...
chekov belongs to lily-pagan. spoc belongs to dcas. kirk belongs to me!
*shrugs* what are blogger friends without a common thread?
chris pine (kirk) was so adorable in the movie! and i know that's nowhere near original, but what the hell?
*fan girl heart overhead* i love chris pine/kirk!
i've been seriously missing your comments, dcas! come back to me!
*spins chair around* moving on...
yes indeed. i had a memorial picnic with me, my mom, LP, nicole, her mom and her dad. i actually hadn't seen nicole in awhile so that was sweet.
*kicking at the ground* awhile being about a week...
but apparently, nicole got a new boyfriend. what?? i feel so out of the loop... she gets a new boyfriend about once a month. i love you, nicole. but seriously, your obsession with boyfriends is bizarre and foreign to me.
*raises eyebrows curiously* his name's misha.
yesh, me and LP know him. he's in our homeschooling group. i started calling him my brother for really no reason so now i'll just be like "hey, brother!" and he's just like "hi, anastasia..."
*cheesy smile* i dunno if he's that amused by me.
but anyway, me, nicole and lily-pagan are planning a midsummer party. i immediately called DJ even though i know i'll probably have to share it with jayk.
*kissy face* jayk is obsessed with music, like me.
i have no idea if we'll even have music. and in the back of my mind i'm a little freaked out because like half the people in this group must live under a rock!
*hangs her head* i dunno what music they listen to...
jayk likes stuff like ACDC, KISS and van halen. and nicole likes j-rock. other than that, i dunno what they hella bolloo these people listen to!
*cold breeze* and of course the crazy v's listen to adam... way too much...
it's hard to find a common ground. and i know dana listens to the kind of stuff on pandora radio. and june and chrissy are radio hoppers. but really, i have friends that i have no idea what they listen to.
*snaps her fingers* but the best part is...
we're making it invite only so we don't have to suffer the crazy v's!
*fist pump* yes!!!
so this midsummer party sounds like loads of fun. no sarcasm. just fun.
*contented sigh* so much glee, so little crazy v's...
me and LP still have to do that post about our homeschooling group for box, so i'll keep you posted there. so anyway- WAIT!!!!!
*world stops turning* i forgot the weather report!!
how could i?? it's the opening part of every post! eek! i've gotta put it in ASAP!
*wearing a weatherman coat, clearly flustered* currently it is 57 degrees and raining with a slight bit of hail.
phew! my aura is back the way it's supposed to be... so let's move on like that way supposed to happen, shall we?
*hangs her head* lately, i've been so uninspired in my writing...
i sat at my computer for about an hour yesterday trying to post on 18 days and NOTHING came to mind. complete white noise.
*blank stare* isn't it tragic?
it's so sad how other writers are supposed to inspire you. but i was reading this blog the other day and i was just like... "this girl is good. i'm lily white by comparison."
*rose swipe* as i always say, writers are 90% creativity and 10% jealousy.
alas, i know i need to post on both of my writing blogs but i'm so conflicted.
*zachary quinto black stare, develops vulcan ears* i find myself as conflicted as i once was as a child.
it's a line in the new star trek. and yes, my and lily-pagan are those people you hate how say all the lines to each other. actually, it's just the previews. we shut up for the actual movie.
*coughs a few times* as i was saying.
i have absolutely no inspiration for a short story and bohemian rhapsody is turning out so bubblegum teeny bopper and predictable. i hate it.
*poses dramatically* to write or not to write!
i dunno if i should continue bohemian rhapsody or replace it with something less teeny bopper and predictable. thoughts are welcome!
*uncle sam point* i want YOU to leave me a crayon.
also, i was thinking of revamping this layout. i've had it since early january. and lily-pagan just redid the look to her blog so i'm especially wondering.
*shrugs* what can i say? i'm a leftist.
so if you have any thoughts on the matter, leave me a crayon. to change the template, or not to change the template? that is the second question.
*big pleading eyes* i need your thoughts! please leave a crayon!
especially you, DCas! i miss your crayons ):
*tapping her chin* and that's all for now, i guess...
it's not as long as it usually is i don't think, but i just wanted to get back into the habit of posting. so i'll give you the watch-see-hear and move along.
*opening a letter like on the oscars* and the watch-see-hear goes to...
what else? STAR TREK! amazing movie. much love for JJ Abrams.
*nodding, proud of herself* i watch lost and fringe.
but heroes annoys me. but overall, JJ Abrams has major props from anastasia.
*peace sign* peace, love, JJ Abrams!
hope you're all doing very well! don't forget to crayon! i love getting them!
*Chris Pine intense face, sitting in the captain chair* anastasia out.

live, love, the starting line

PS: i got a facebook the other day. i'm still figuring out, but when i do, i'll post a link on the sidebar and maybe in the post. facebook is so confusing right now... O.O
PSS: rally for california gay marriage! whoot whoot!!

self belief only comes from one person

Date: May 22
Mood: lazy
Listening To: 'Cat and Mouse' by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
Famous People Born Today: 1907 Laurence Oliver, 1950 Bernie Taupin, 1961 Ann Cusack


let me start by saying two things. number one...
*flapping her hands at nothing* i'm sorry for not posting! i've been busy...
and number two. i have waaaaay too many things to talk about this time so this post might seem way too long. sorry and i hope you all get through it. so let's move on with the weather report brought to you by marvelous me!
*wearing a weatherman coat* currently it is 75 degrees and partly cloudy.
so what's new by me? well, i made a new blog!
*heavy sigh* yeah, i know. i probably don't need another one.
but this one is for my short stories! you can go to it here for more details...
*cheesy smile* yeah, i haven't posted yet...
well, i wrote a whole story but then i hated it and i got rid of it. sorry guys! i'll post something up there soon.
*tapping her chin thoughtfully* other news...
EGAD! oh yes! i missed the dollhouse season finale because of my DVR!
*sobbing* nooooo!!
and i asked the crazy v's because they watch it to (just another love of mine for them to ruin for me) and they started talking at the same time and all i could make it is "dr. claire is a doll!"
*blank stare, cold breeze* i already knew that...
so alas and alack, i have no idea how things resolved on dollhouse. so sad.
*sobs again* and they announced that terminator: the sarah connor chronicles isn't getting renewed. anti-glee...
i haven't gotten a chance to watch it, but glee is on my DVR for me and LP's future veiwing.
*rain cloud overhead* oh gosh, trying to think of happy news is surprisingly difficult...
ooh! i watched the season finale of supernatural and that rocked seriously hard.
*makes a heart with her hands* love my winchester boys!
also i'm way happy that DCas is feeling better now! i was gonna email her the instructions on how to change her commenting format because i know how to have a coolio background and still have functioning comments.
*points to devin caster* email me at young lady!
and she was saying how much adam lambert inspired her. i won't steal him from her, but i too was inspired by adam. i'm thinking about taking a serious career path in theater, musical or non-musical.
*happy sigh* but adam has helped me shake the dust off that dream
i'm still an adam fan. always was. i wasn't be upset that kris won, because he's really amazing in his own right, but i'm still an adam fan till death.
*gasps* and of course kradam!
what is kradam you ask? the romantic pairing of kris allen and adam lambert of course!
*nodding, proud of herself* they're the new cookstro!
but seriously, i love them as a pairing beyond belief! you can check me out at..
*rainbow overhead* only the best place on the web!!
yesh, i actually have a sign in and a profile and stuff! i'll put the link on my sidebar.
*heavy sigh* but before we get too far from american idol, let me get in a quick word.
i love adam lambert. i really like kris allen. i couldn't lose. almost all of the guest performances were mind numbingly sexy. except for those featuring anoop desai. it was a great idol finale.
*sniffling* i cried. no really.
not because i was sad that adam lost. because it was by far my favorite season of idol and i'm completely heartbroken that it's over.
*reaching at the TV* noooo! come back season 8!
more than half of the blogs i follow posted about idol though, and soon enough LP will post a full report about idol here and we'll probably up up talking about it on box.
*sticks out her tongue* that's short for anastasia and lily-pagan's box of chocolates.
well, whenever i post about american idol i get about 8 crayons and whenever i post about homeschooling i get about 1 crayon so it's pretty obvious what i should talk about if i want crayons.
*rolls her eyes* but there's way too much to cover!
i have to get a word in about the epic creative writing battle. well...
*sitting in a rocking chair with a dusty book* there once were too girls named anastasia and lily-pagan...
we're homeschooled. and please don't ask me what i'm doing about college! because that's what every single person i tell i'm homeschooled asks me.
*anime pulse overhead* i'm gonna GO to college! that's what i'm gonna do!
but anyway, we take a class is creative writing because as you know, we love to write. we have it with june and chrissy who are really awesome. i call chrissy chirp. and kyle and david. kyle is june's brother and david is this really nice guy who's friends with kyle. and of course...
*ice cold wind blows by* crazy victoria and crazy vanessa.
crazy vanessa is my little fan girl. she follows me around and repeats all my catchphrases.
*air quotes* "hey love" and "dear lawd" being two of them.
she's not THAT bad. she's not a crazy obsesses-er the way victoria is. she's just really energetic i guess.
*eye twitches* i sympathize a lot more with her.
so anywho, the teacher emailed our parents and said that there were some people in the class who annoyed her and her wanted to kick them out basically.
*snarls* seriously, julie! grow a set!
she's so unprofessional. it irks me. grr... so in the email it was really obvious that she was talking about me, LP, and the crazy sisters. so we had to be extra quiet this week so she didn't kick us out.
*shrugs* the crazy V's i can live without but not my writing.
so we came into the center (it's in an old school) and of course i was wise and brought my sunglasses. why did this help?
*laughs* because then crazy victoria couldn't tell if i was making eye contact or not!
she always tries to talk to me while i'm in the middle of something but she gets pissed if i don't look directly at her. sunglasses to the rescue!
*clears her throat* anyway.
lucky lily-pagan got to sit next to june and chrissy because she came in the other door to the room but i was stuck with crazy victoria.
*reaching for LP* come back to me!
i did some good writing and maybe i'll continue one of them for 18 Days. but crazy victoria kept writing about adam. and i was like "hey! ass munch! didn't you get the email? it said inside jokes piss her off!"
*snarls again* of course julie (the teacher) doesn't have to balls to kick anyone out.
but victoria kept saying "oh, well, this will make sense to SOME people..." and then she read "he had weird things that looked like cages on his shoulders."
*jaw drops* hey! genius! only lady gaga and adam wear cages on their shoulders! i'll give you a ZERO for creativity!
it was horrible. she a bad writer, too. and now she thinks she can write songs. and she's tonedeaf.
*smiles enthusiastically* it just keeps getting better, doesn't it?
but the goods news is that we didn't get kicked out and i got some good starts. so overall i guess it was a win.
*looks up at the post* err... i think that was long enough.
it doesn't seem like it, but i guess it is. i'll just get to the watch-see-hear.
*opening a letter like on the oscars* and the must watch-see-hear goes to...
GLEE!!! i haven't actually watched it yet but it is going to be amazing!
*Totoro smile* i LOVE shows about the workings of a theater group!
you always have the jock that is a really good singer and dancer and the prima dona who everyone puts up with because they're amazing and the queen who can't stand the prima dona. it's great.
*Uncle Sam point* that's why i want YOU to watch GLEE!
well, i should be posting soon because i forgot how much i loved posting but i still have to post on 18 Days and maybe me and LP will post on box because she's coming over later.
*peace sign* ciao! hope everyone's doing okay!

live, love, taking back sunday

PS: sorry, i still love idol! i just didn't want to do all the works about the finale!
PSS: did anyone else read that story about how gene simmons was a bitch to adam and said he didn't have the chops to sing rock? gene simmons is a bitch! adam was a great voice and he totally sings Kiss better that you, gene simmons!
PSSS: picture of me with the the post. you can see my brown hair! yes, my hair is actually black but you can sometimes see brown lowlights in the sun. x3

the good die young

Date: May 6
Mood: antsy
Listening To: 'Ice Box' by There For Tomorrow
Famous People Born Today: 1915 Orson Welles, 1943 Lynn Whitfield, 1947 Alan Dale, 1961 Gina Riley, 1961 George Clooney


who's the slacker blogger??
*waving excitedly* i am! i am!
yesh, alas and alack, i haven't posted in FOREVER.
*fanning herself* sorry all my beloved followers!
well, well, well. i actually have random crap to say so let's get on with the weather report.
*wearing a weatherman jacket* it's 57 degrees and pouring rain in luray, tonight folks.
i have no idea when the rain is gonna let up... it's been raining all day...
*looking sadly out the window, sighs* so sad...
so let's back track to last friday. i have to get a word in...
*reaching at the screen in horror* VICTOR!!! NOOOOO!!!
yesh, alpha made a long awaited appearance on dollhouse on friday. but how did we know it was alpha? well he's pretty much evil and slashes people's faces with a blade like zoro.
*jaw drops in utter horror* but he slashed victor's face!!
he didn't die which was almost worse because then he was just on the ground crying and covering his face for the rest of the scene... dammit, joss whedon!
*snarls* and further more!
it just flat out sucked to be victor for that episode. the first time you saw him they imprinted
him with lawrence dominic (who i miss, personally) and he was strapped into the chair.
*makes a face as if to say "yikes"* that sucks...
and then ballard and boyd broke his pod and they were "fighting on him" and the poor dear was shrieking in horror and seemed traumatized!
*sexy actor glasses swip* but what did we learn from this weeks dollhouse?
dr. saunders might be a doll herself!!
*gasp* no! it can't be!
yeah, it took me a couple times and a few minutes after of deep thinking to figure that one out...
*flips her hair* let me show off my skills.
when victor is imprinted with dominic, he looks over at claire helplessly and says "whiskey." now, since all the dolls names are based on letters of the alphabet, it's likely that claire is the W! which would explain why alpha spared her. also when alpha asked if she's always wanted to be a doctor and she says yes, her snarls "that's not true." maybe because she's a doll!!
*Logan Jay/Kris point* mad skills, right?
yesh, that was truly dollhouse fanatic of me...
*flapping her hands at nothing* but let's skip to what's important here!
tonight and last night were american idol nights! rock week with...
*sudden air guitar, sticks out her tongue* SLASH!!!
i'm a fan of guns & roses and velvet revolver so slash is on my good side. so i was psyched about this week. which totally delivered. adam sang led zeppelin and in the words of my ma "how many things can "every inch of my love" and "a whole lot of love" mean??" adam got it! he was totally sexed up and in one of his moods! oh my gawd! so sexy last night x3
*leans closer and gives him puppy dog eyes* please?
ah-hem... LP gets it. INSIDE JOKE! sorry, moving on...
*gasps excitedly* the kris and danny duet!
yeah, they did duets but they were good so pish posh. kris and danny did 'renegade' which i was really nervous about but i really liked it and kris looked really hawt. it's a win win!
*tapping her chin thoughtfully* actually, kris looked mind numbingly yummy all night...
that's what SHE said! yesh, bet you didn't know i'm a "that's what she said" joke person. sorry! i'm a bit of a perv...
*drooling, panting* well as long as i'm being perverted...
allison and adam did a duet which was really really good. and they have a great dynamic. they could totally record something together. but did you see adam's pants??? skintight. striped. pants. oh my gawd! yum!
*thumbs up* plus me and LP support the pairing of adam and allison. shweet.
but let's get onto the results show before i talk too much about adam last night...
*sad face* the results were depressing... but that's later.
the ford commercial was 100% lame. eh. maybe 90% because adam hair was absolutely terrific. i loved it. weird... the guest performers were paula abdul, daughtry and no doubt.
*looks totally lost* i dunno what to say.
paula's was amazing choreographed and not so amazingly lip-synced. no doubt was so bizarre that i told my mom to fast forward through them and daughtry... chris daughtry is really good and i love daughtry. but i will admit they sound A LOT like shinedown.
*rolls her eyes in disgust* they sing 'second chance' for radio hoppers.
so the guest performances were okay. just a'ight as randy would say. but the cut was brutal and made me sad...
*boo boo lip* allison got cut. and she DID NOT deserve it.
but i'm trying to be optimistic so i don't wanna get into danny gokey. let's just say i really really hate him and really liked allison. idol performances were awesome but idol results were strange.
*poses victoriously* my homeschooling is going well, though!
GLEE! by the way, i think i'm gonna pick up watching glee. anyone else? anyway, victoria was really nice to me last thursday and friday but when i saw her again on monday she was back to being crazy and bitchy. and today she told me my headband was stupid.
*squeals like a wounded puppy* i had a headband in that queemo way on today...
but vanessa (her sister) was really nice to me the whole time. yay! i'm pretty sure i'm her idol because she follows me most places and picks up my catchphrases and such.
*Church lady face* I'm not just flattering myself.
i've been working a lot at a little local theater here so i've been kind of busting my butt all week. i'm pretty tired at this point. mebs. one of the theater classes i'm taking in run by that place so i'm acting there. i was in their summer camp which was... interesting...
*poses glamorously* i was in their production of Les Miserables.
er... the part i got is unimportant. i'm just happy to have it on my resume, you know? needless to say, i like acting. but i'm kinda a bad singer. i'm not TERRIBLE (i hope) but i'm by no means good.
*nodding, proud of herself* but seriously, i was sick when i auditioned for les miserables so i've kinda been telling myself that's why i got such a minor part.
gadzooks! look at the time! i better wrap things up! er... make shift!
*opening a letter like on the oscars, looking more nervous than usual* the must watch-see-hear goes to...
the bride wars! yesh, me and LP ordered it on netflix because she wanted to see it. i really didn't think i'd like it but it was coolio. plus bryan greenburg from one tree hill was in it so the first we saw him on screen i was like "it's jake!!" haha. it was fun anyway. we ended up throwing popcorn at each other and i got to wear my muffin pjs!!
*totoro smile* yes, i have pajamas with chibi muffins on them. be jealous...
so maybe it's just the good memories i made with lily-pagan by watching it but kate hudson rawks. so i would recommend it to anyone.
*uncle sam point* even you!
so anywho, i better skidaddle. i hope all of you are doing well! ta-ta for now! i'll post again soon!
*shifty eyes* or at least i'll try to...

live, love, nevershoutnever!

PS: do sparrows really love the snow?? saltwater room reference, but really.
PSS: this week is the dollhouse season finale! and it might not get renewed! eek!
