we'll have an old fashioned wedding

In case you didn't get the title it's from the musical "Annie Get Your Gun."  Anyways as you probably know, today on TV's and computers everywhere i a wedding, the wedding of prince William.  Personally I don't really care for royalty, or weddings so I won't be watching, but I would like to know why is this such a big deal.  I know that William will be king one day but that doesn't really have anything to do with are political future, would someone kindly enlighten me?.  I would like to say though that I personally would hate to be a member of the royal family, but I would also hate to be a celebrity for these same reasons.  No privacy, you're compared to everyone, people get really mean if they're against you, and you have to look perfect all the time no matter what. Maybe some people like that, but again I don't understand it. And again I ask for enlightenment.  I just don't see a function for all the flowers, guests, and stuff.  But whatever floats their boat.

We're painting the roses red.

Well sort of, we don't exactly have any roses... and we're not painting them red.  However we did dye easter eggs on Friday (yes I know a long, long time ago.)  What does dying eggs have to do with painting roses? well it doesn't really have anything to do with it at first.  Afterwards it does.  After we dyed the eggs we had to get rid of the dye, and pouring it down the sink just wasn't cool enough so we took it outside and splatter painted our flowers with bright egg dye, our flowers are very pale, they needed a splash of color.  This is the result.


blue

okay so that is kinda red

we kinda missed some of the flowers and got leaves

and green

Yes I know I lead a very exciting life.   Happy Tuesday!

Grenade Bruno Mars

I'm sure you've heard the song, "Grenade" by Bruno Mars. here are the lyrics.



Easy come, easy go
That's just how you live, oh
Take, take, take it all,
But you never give
Should of known you was trouble from the first kiss,
Why were they open?
Gave you all I had
And you tossed it in the trash
You tossed it in the trash, you did
To give me all your love is all I ever asked,
Cause what you don't understand is
I'd catch a grenade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Throw my hand on a blade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I'd jump in front of a train for ya (yeah, yeah , yeah)
You know I'd do anything for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh, oh
I would go through all this pain,
Take a bullet straight through my brain,
Yes, I would die for ya baby;
But you won't do the same

No, no, no, no
Black, black, black and blue beat me till I'm numb
Tell the devil I said "hey" when you get back to where you're from
Mad woman, bad woman,
That's just what you are, yeah,
You'll smile in my face then rip the breaks out my car
Gave you all I had
And you tossed it in the trash
Bruno Mars Grenade lyrics found on

You tossed it in the trash, yes you did
To give me all your love is all I ever asked
Cause what you don't understand is
I'd catch a grenade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Throw my hand on a blade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I'd jump in front of a train for ya (yeah, yeah , yeah)
You know I'd do anything for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh, oh
I would go through all this pain,
Take a bullet straight through my brain,
Yes, I would die for ya baby;
But you won't do the same

If my body was on fire, ooh
You' d watch me burn down in flames
You said you loved me you're a liar
Cause you never, ever, ever did baby...
But darling I'll still catch a grenade for ya
Throw my hand on a blade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I'd jump in front of a train for ya (yeah, yeah , yeah)
You know I'd do anything for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh, oh
I would go through all this pain,
Take a bullet straight through my brain,
Yes, I would die for ya baby;
But you won't do the same.
No, you won't do the same,
You wouldn't do the same,
Ooh, you'll never do the same,
No, no, no, no
Honestly I don't really like the song, until recently.  When I realized we are all like that girl who dumped him.  No, i'm not saying we all go around dating and dumping.  But we have done it with someone who truly loved and still loves us.Jesus.  Three days ago he caught a grenade for all of us and we won't do the same.  Jesus was beaten black and blue, had rusty nails shoved through his hands, and he did everything for us.  But we won't do the same.  Think of this song as Jesus talking to you, I'd feel awful and guilty especially when he says "Tell the devil I said "hey" when you get back to where you're from
Mad woman, bad woman,That's just what you are, yeah,"  But it's true, we will go to hell because that's where we're from, full of sin.  When he says "You said you loved me you're a liar cause you never, ever, ever did baby..."  That's also true with some Christians they say they love God but they don't.Today is easter we should be willing to die for the person who died for us, but we aren't.  So today remember that and whenever you listen to this song remember it, we're the people who he's singing this to, saying, "But you won't do the same."

Earth Day

Happy Earth day!
I know it's not really all that important, but my sister just knocked on my door and told me to wear 100% cotton.  However I don't have 100% cotton pants the highest I have is 86% but it'll do.  I do have a T-shirt that would be perfect for the occasion, it's made of 50% cotton and 50% recycled plastic coke bottles.  It's one of my favorite T-shirts. Oh here's a picture of it.


Anyway happy earth day.

the 80's

It's spring break and I'm having fun.  On Monday we went shopping, on Tuesday I had art class, and today I'm going to youth group but other than that I have no idea what I'm doing today.  Probably Hopefully more of what I did yesterday.  Listening to 80's music while drawing, I'm not crazy...I'm really not.  So, if you're like me and enjoy 80's music then let me share with you some of my favorites.

St.Elmo's Fire: I really like this song but I have no idea why, normally a song that says "elmo" in it would be weird but I actually like this a lot.
Everywhere:  I find this song very relaxing, and fun.
Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now:  This song makes me think of friendship and teamwork.
You're The Voice:  This song is basically tells me not to be scared or be quiet.
Livin' On a Prayer:  A true 80's classic and just a great song
Mom and sister enter dancing during this song
You Spin Me Round:  Super weird music video, but very catchy song
Footloose: This is a fun upbeat dance-y song
Let's Groove: another fun dance-y song, reminds me of a musical
Sweet Dreams: Kinda strange and repetitive but really cool.
I Love Rock and Roll:  Yes I do


So those are my top ten 80's songs, in no particular order.

The Theater

So... I have been to two plays in the past two days.  One, my sister's friend was in a musical (not really a musical but a collection of different songs from different musicals.)  And two my sister had a ballet performance.  They were both nicely done but the theater isn't for me.  I don't like the crowds of people and the (sometimes) uncomfy seats.  I totally respect the time and effort it takes to put on a play or dance but it's not really something I enjoy doing a lot of (I get peopled-out very easily.)  But whenever my sister performs I'll be there no matter how uncomfy the seats are.  iGirl/Danni you did great.  So anyways, what are your thoughts on dramas plays and such? I'm curious.

My confession

Okay, so you know those secrets that you have, that you're not embarrassed about but they're kinda goofy and weird.  Well I have one of those, it's not super weird, but it is highly opposed by my sister.  It's also relatively new, well okay about five years old.  What is it? oh, yeah... I want to live in the country.  Yes my sister hates it when I burst out in random country songs, and wear plaid.  I personally find it perfect, very fresh and well country-ish.  I really wanted to buy the "Country Dance" Wii game, but no one would ever play it with me.  My mom finds my country-love strange, because I will decorate my future country home, with modern black and white furnishings.  But I like to call that eclectic.  And yes, I will have a home in the country, with acres of land, in a small town, where my barn will serve as a meeting place for my future church's youth group.  Yep I've planned my future.



ahh... A barn


So yes this is hopefully future life.  But for now I'm stuck in the suburbs.  And that is my confession.

Rain

I think rain is amazing.  Just thinking about it is cool.  It's literally water falling from the sky.  And then I learned about all the scientific stuff that goes along with it and it kind of messed up that idea.  But I still think rain is incredible, it's cool, refreshing, and when it rains the world gets a shower and seems cleaner.  I also happen to like cloudy days, they make me feel safe almost as if I were wrapped up in a big blanket of sky.  So I thought I'd share with you this picture of a road after it has rained... Actually I believe it's melted snow but the feeling is the same.

And I also like these rain related songs.
Enya---Listen to the Rain
Eddie Rabbit---I Love a Rainy Night

Friday

"It’s Friday, Friday
Gotta get down on Friday
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend, weekend
Friday, Friday

Gettin’ down on Friday
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend"----Friday Rebecca Black

So that song... the one I just typed... the one up there ^
Yes that one.  Seems to be the most hated song in the world... but also one of the most popular at the time that I'm posting this it has 89,251,721 views,  likes, and 1,784,240 dislikes.  In the 3 minutes and 48 seconds that it took me to watch it 111 comments came in.  So why do I care about this?  well honestly I don't really care, I'm just curious.  Why is she such a big deal?  The music company that wrote the song, did the editing and made the music video has done others.  Why is this one so big?  Maybe because it's "bad" instead of "good."  It's easier to find music that you dislike than it is to find music that you actually like.  Now I don't like the song or the singer, but it's kind of mean for everyone to attack her when she.... 1 didn't even write the song... 2 she wasn't picked up cause she was an amazing singer... and 3 she's thirteen.  Personally I think it's ridiculous to "hate" someone, especially someone you don't know.  Now I admit that I used to hate certain musicians just cause I didn't like their songs, but that's beside the point.  Don't hate the person hate the song.  Some people have a hard time doing that.  But for a thirteen year old I think she's actually handling it pretty well.  
So that's was my rant, I know not to impressive but I just had to say to all those commenters who hate her.  Hate the song, not the girl.  She didn't even write the song.

I'm on a mission

Recently I was watching "The Grid" which is a webcast provided by Kelby TV.com.  It's basically a talk show about anything Photoshop and or Photography related.  One of the topics they talked about yesterday, was cell phone cameras.  Stuff like, whether or not they were useful, what do you do with the pictures, and why are they so popular.  Since the show is mostly photographers, this is not the average response.  They said that cell phone camera were useful for scouting a location and stuff like that when they don't have a camera with them.  They said they rarely did anything with the pictures and they also said they were probably popular because you can share them quickly.  Many of the comments the show got during it's live broadcast said they would use it if the didn't have their DSLR camera with them.  Then it hit me that I'm blessed with a redonkulous DLSR camera that many aspiring photographers don't have.  So I'm going on a mission to bring my camera everywhere with me to take the most advantage of it.  Granted I've already taken over 30,000 photos on it but I want to use it more.  So that's my mission.  Hopefully this blog will be filled with many more pictures in the time to come.  But in the meantime, here's a picture while you wait.

"Like"

Remember in my "words I use a lot" post when I said I use the word like?  Well I do.  It sounds really annoying when you say it a lot though and so I'm trying to stop.  But it's so useful, you can use it in a whole bunch of different ways. For example:
1. to say how much you appreciate something--- Yeah, I like Jelly Beans.
2. to say how much you appreciate someone--- Oh, I really like Selena Gomez (not really, it's an example)
3. to express a long period of time--- for-like-ever
4. to compare to things--- it's like that emu riding a rhinoceros (again it's an example)
5. to stick in there when you don't know what to say--- And like then we like went there and did like everything
6. to described what someone said or did--- And she was like "wow really?" and I was like "no April Fools."

So those are some of the top ways like can be used, are there any more I missed.  So now in my plight to  stop saying the "L" word I have decided to use a rubber band.  Yes you read me no need to re-read.  I said a rubber band.  Why?  Have you ever seen the Disney Channel show Suite Life on Deck, well when one of them want to forget his ex-girlfriend he puts a rubber band on his wrist and whenever he thinks of here he snaps the rubber band on his wrist.  I know strange illustration but that's what I'm going to do I'll snap myself with a rubber band whenever I say li...the "L" word.  I've tried I before but on and off but this time I won't take it off. Until I'm cured that is.
