oh, moving units

your lyrics say it all. every song so similar but so different. all laced with a sort of ironic sense of happiness and easiness, but in reality so so depressingly realistic. youve covered every situation, havent you? you know me personally, right? i sort of hate you. and yet, how could i?

I'm sorry I can't afford you
It's so messed up anyway
I'm sorry I can't reward you
It's so messed up either way

But in another time and in another place
I wish I could tell you to your face
You went in circles- what a waste
Cuz I'm the one you need

I saw the future
I made it up
We were tea leaves in a tea cup
Paper hearts
We tore the tissue
Ripped apart and now I miss you

But in another time and in another place
I wish I could tell you to your face
You went in circles- what a waste
Cuz I'm the one you need

and then

Am I going too fast
I never wanted to waste the gas
You wanted to go there
I wanted it too
And now we're all in a cast
They say in Heaven the first shall be last
But that was a comeback
For people who dream that we're angels
We're so vain

I know it's never the same
We'll never be that golden
Everything was arranged
But now the party is over
I know it's never the same

Every crime needs a victim
(Maybe it's you maybe it's me)
Now it's time that we picked one
(I`m hoping it's you i`m hoping it's me)

I wanna go too fast
I never wanted to wait to relax
I just couldn't do that
And now the moment is past
Like a stone that's been thrown through the glass
And all that's left is a trace of the place we used to call home base
I see it in your face what a waste
We'll never be the same
We'll never be that golden
Everything was arranged
But now the party is over
We'll never be the same

We are a tale of two cities
Lost, drowned in a world of self pity
Can't you see we're not winning
Lost, drowned in a world that keeps spinning

In a world that keeps spinning around

at which point i sigh

It's so clear now, I'm understanding
And the furniture, matches the ceiling
But was different than, you had expected
Will you pardon me, I wasn't elected

I know it's difficult, so
I will be patient
I guess we have to aspect
If it's okay, yeah
I'll make it easy for you, what a disaster
Maybe it's better off this way

Better off this way

It's a task and then, when you complete it
Were you lonely when, I wasn't needed
Cause it's natural, to feel unfaithful
When you're going to, be anyway

I know it's difficult now, but you can try to
Was it worth all the fuss, 'cause, I feel so seedy
I'll make it easy for you, what a disaster
We couldn't go wrong, any faster

I never wanted anything
I never wanted anything
I never wanted anything
I never wanna
I never wanna
I never wanna
ah-ah, ah-ah,
ah-ah, ah, ah

aaaaaaand i bid you goodnight

please, let me be a girl again.

freewrite #1

obviously i would get run into a wall while trying to finish laundry. thank you, sandy. now my elbow is bleeding and i have a raspberry the size of a tennis ball to accompany it. also, because i am parched, i lifted my full cup of cranberry juice to find a small fly floating on the juice's surface. how did i ask for this bad karma?? well, i mean, i think i know but it still sucks. i also have not been paid for any of the going on six weeks ive babysat. its putting a bit of a dent in my financial aid account, but what can i do? i could very well get a job, you say? duh. im planning on looking for one before/during/after my spring break. itll be several months before summer so even if i dont get hired ill have time to get something seasonal. what a drag to work during summer though. spending all of those optimal beach hours indoors catering to people. but that store discount has me drooling too! and its a good thing ill be getting a paycheck because most of my check will definitely go into that store discount. dont judge me. and, as ridiculous as it seems to review something on my blog, i have to say that ive been using a few mario badescu products for a while and i just have to comment on the results. i got the aloe lotion, which is a cleanser/toner, from the badescu website. the bottle says its for combination, dry, and sensitive skin types so it should definitely work for my combination, sensitive skin. when i apply it, the is an odd smoothing effect that always surprises me and after using the toner my skin feels really tight and smooth. i am completely going to complain about the day effects though. it says to apply moisturizer after the toner, and i do along with some makeup, but after about 3-6 hours my skin is super super oily. honestly, my skin does get oily after a period of time but it is usually more like at the end of the day or under harsh weather and not right before i leave the house in the morning. i think it is clearing up my skin though so i guess ill just have to figure out some lotion/makeup combo to fix the oil. and my english teacher just sent me the homework response this morning so im going to get to reading now. sucks that its due tomorrow but whatever. i did lag it on emailing her and i was wasting time today. sigh

how depressing and creepy

i just posted about alexander mcqueen wednesday and was so so saddened to learn that he took his life just yesterday.... i hadnt known about his mother's passing, but alas it is one big tragedy...

i guess i will never be able to attend an alexander mcqueen show after all =[

The British fashion industry lost one of its brightest stars yesterday with the apparent suicide of Alexander McQueen, who was found hanged at his Central London home.

The designer, 40, had been grieving over the death of his mother, Joyce, who died on February 2.

He announced the death of his mother on Twitter. He wrote: “I’m letting my followers know that my mother passed away yesterday if it she had not had me nor would you RIP mumxx.” He later added: “But life must go on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

By Sunday he had apparently rallied and wrote: “Been a ****ing awful week but my friends have been great but now I have to some how pull myself together and finish with the HELLS ANGLES & PROLIFIC DEAMONS!!!!.”


to a true artist, you will be dearly missed. this world will not be the same without you. rest in peace.

oh my god, these shoes


also, i know im a bit late on the whole line
but here are the videos of his spring show

how cute is he at the end of the show being all awkward and not quirky looking whatsoever when he actually produces such over-the-top gorgeous clothes...

and btw, how insane would it be to attend one of his shows? i think id like to add that to my "things id love to do but will never get the chance so it'll remain a fantasy" bucket list.

beyonce and gaga

so i love the song Telephone. here is the Telephone video with both singers.

[the first 45 seconds can be skipped]

first, i get that the song is featuring Gaga so she should not be the focus of the video but what is with her not showing up til 2:30? that sucks. and second, whats with the ketchup and mustard heels--bad choice. and also, HOW EFFING SEXY DOES BEYONCE LOOK IN HER LATINA INSPIRED LOOKS????

aaaaand here is the Telephone video's parody that got me laughing out loud. seriously, much respect for both women and i love the music and everything but this shizz is undeniably funny...

and, lastly, a nod to Gaga's version which i also enjoy
