I can't bring myself to make an actual update on my life because I'm too busy avoiding things. So I'll just post a meme! It's sort of like the one that Sarah did. I posted a couple of the songs.

Movie soundtrack for your life. The rules:

1. Put your music player of choice on shuffle
2. Scene one = first song played, scene two = second, so on.
3. No cheating/skipping
4. Pass it on

Some of those fit extraordinarily well and I didn't even cheat on them.

There is going to be a new season of Project Runway this summer and I'm excited. Bravo is pretty great with reality shows. I really got in to Top Chef towards the end, too. I was glad Harold won; he was adorable. And, you know, a good chef or whatever. But anyway, I still prefer PR because I know more about fashion than I do about food. Plus the contestants are more entertaining. I'm just happy I'll have something to look forward to watching in the summer. Yay!
monaubergine: (dirty and hot)
I swear alice tagged me for this '10 things that make me happy' meme but now that post is gone, so. well, i finally got around to doing it so i'm posting it anyway.

ten things that make me happy:
one: brown sugar and fig body cream from bath and body works. the layer of smells is perfect. it is like the smell i never knew I wanted (woah, that sounds totally crazy).
two: reading random articles on wikipedia. somehow i came across the category pedarastic lovers. it's quite a group of men: leonardo da vinci, alexander the great, walt whitman, e.m. forster. oh, my.
three: the freckles on the bridge of jensen ackles' nose. (i can't find a picture where they are visible :/ but he has a nice nose in general, really.
four: and this is lame, but i will also add jensen ackles' voice, which is deep and drawly and TEXAN and he makes everything sound dirty.
five: go fug yourself. hee.
six: blueberry pie and ice cream. especially when the pie is homemade (even though the pie i just had wasn't). mmmmm.
seven: said the gramophone. my favorite music blog, and i read quite a few. the writing is brilliant, sometimes even better than the music they post (which is always amazing).
eight: i was going to say whales, but i don't know if they really make me happy. they scare and fascinate me equally. i love these whale watercolors.
nine: learning about the etymology of words. it's the main reason i'm going to study linguistics (but i like the other parts too).
ten: the prospect of graduating high school and leaving wichita and meeting new people. which is scary too, but i'm sick of high school, mostly. so, yeah.

i'm surprised i could actually think of 10, although it took me a while. i've been really moody lately. i get irrationally angry at people and i know it's irrational but i still want to blame it on them. i just need a break from people sometimes.
Go to google.com and type "(your name) needs" Then pick the 5 funniest ones there.

If your name is James, you would put this in to the search engine: "James needs"
you got the idea

Then copy and paste this into a new bulletin with your answers filled in:

Whitney needs a little polish.
Whitney needs serious drug rehab.
Whitney needs a fresh comeback.
Whitney Needs Your Soccer Shorts!
Whitney needs to level with her mother, our experts say.
Whitney needs some help -- and a new wigmaker.

I'm bored.

So I'm stealing this from John:

Step 1: Put your media player on random
Step 2: Pick your favorite lines from the first 25 songs that play.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the ones people have guessed already.

I left out some of the really hard ones and the ones that weren't in English.

I just posted a bit ago but I felt like doing this meme anyway.

LJ Interests meme results

  1. boys in drag:
    Hahahahaha. Well, yeah. Who doesn't? This interest dates back to fourth grade, when my favorite movie was Adventures of Priscilla: Queen of the Desert, and I thought Guy Pearce was really hot.
  2. devendra banhart:
    He has such an incredibly interesting voice; I love it. And I have such a weakness for weird folky-type music.
  3. feminism:
    I hate it when people think all feminists are man-hating hairy-legged radical. Feminism is about equality for both sexes. Women's issues are important to me, for obvious reasons.
  4. harold and maude:
    God, I love this movie. It's so simple and funny and it's got a great soundtrack of Cat Stevens songs. Everyone needs to see it.
  5. keren ann:
    I like her voice; it's soft and low and breathy but not annoyingly so. My favorite song of hers is currently 'Seventeen' because I love the orchestration.
  6. models:
    I love fashion photography because it's a cross between art and marketing. And I like looking at pretty things. America's Next Top Model is addictive.
  7. old 97s:
    I haven't actually listened to them in a while. Their song 'Question' is the sweetest song ever.
  8. reading:
    Well, this is kind of generic. I've always liked to read, although I don't read for leisure nearly as much as I used to, or as much as I would like to. Right now I'm reading The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven by Sherman Alexie.
  9. stargate: atlantis:
    Generally I'm not into scifi; I watch this show for the characters. I love John and Rodney and Zelenka and Ronon and even Teyla (and her people, hahaha). Although I mostly watch the show for the fanfic, because there are so many great authors in this fandom.
  10. umbrellas:
    I don't know why, I just find them aesthetically pleasing, I guess. I don't get to use my umbrella enough.

Enter your LJ user name, and 10 interests will be selected from your interest list.

They were short on people at summer rec so I have a job now! Sadly, I am with the third through fifth graders and it is really dull. Caroline is with the first and second graders and it isn't fair. Anyway, I get to drive the Jetta to work. Yay!
Other things that happened since I last posted (I think):
-I saw Batman Begins with Katie and I loved it. It has a ridiculously amazing cast (minus Katie Holmes) and it was dark and not cheesy like some of the other Batman movies. Christian Bale is incredible.
-I knit a really cute cabled hat but it is too small for my head. I've given it away and am going to knit a bigger one. Hopefully it will go quicker and more smoothly the second time.
-I babysat for my clarinet teacher's kids. They are adorable. I love little kids.
-I went to the optometrist and had to get new contacts for both eyes. Surprisingly, my left eye has actually gotten better, and my right eye was only slightly worse. With my new contact, my left eye is 20/25, which is the best it's ever been (without contacts it is around 20/200).
-I saw Sarah while she was in town and we visited our kids at summer rec (before I knew I would be working there again).
Since Ellen tagged me:
 List 10 celebrities that you find attractive and then tag 5 of your friends.
1. Gael Garcia Bernal: The second picture is my current desktop wallpaper.
2. Ryan Gosling: He is lifting her with ONE ARM. Gah.
3. Ewan McGregor: Everyone loves Ewan (including a certain person on this list...)
4. Hayden Christensen: So pretty. I have such a soft spot for him since Higher Ground.
5. Josh Charles: I couldn't find I picture that did him justice, but he totally makes me melty inside. Sigh.      
6. Jamie Bell: Who knew he got so cute?
7. Nick Stahl: I just watched the first season of Carnivale and he is so cute it canceled out his creepiness in Sin City. And he was seriously creepy in that movie.
8. Topher Grace: I love dorky-cute guys. And he was fantastic in In Good Company.
9. Natalie Portman: Gorgeous. If I could look like anyone I would want to look like her.
10. Alexis Bledel: She always looks perfect on Gilmore Girls.

 I think everyone I would tag has already done it or has been tagged by someone else already.
