Before you know it, you're frozen!

I have a browning banana peel sitting next to me on the couch. Stinking up my life. I don't know why I haven't gotten up to throw it away. I am feeling muy lazy. Geo has been working a lot lately. He's a busy bee! But he came home for dinner an hour ago (I love making dinner for him), and then it was back to work. :( Tomorrow is Friday! Hallelujah! I'm thinking about not going. It's such a pointless class. I mean, I just needed the units, you know?

A thought: It's girls like Karla Deras who make me miss my short hair. Otherwise...I wouldn't even think twice about going boy-short again.

What a waste of a post. Sorry readahs!

All the single ladies...

Just when I thought that song had escaped my mind...the catchiest song on the radio, came crawling back into my head, because not only did I have to listen to it about a dozen times in one day-I also had to perform to it. Yes, I did a show last Sunday, which required me to wear heart-emblazoned daisy dukes, bright tights, and motorcycle boots, dancing to Sasha Fierce's "If ya like it, then you shoulda put a ring on it!" All in all, it was fun. I mean, I'm not going to lie-I thought I wanted to die halfway through, because I was (still am) sick and the last thing I wanted to do was dance around in saggy bottom hot pants, and put on a show. Plus I sounded like Scarlett Johansson mixed with a back-alley cat screeching at that top it's lungs. Not to best friend called me that day to notify me that she had just gotten into a major car accident. She's ok-thank God! But her car burst into flames, and all that remains is her camera. Needless to say-it was super scary, and I immediately started bawling, because all I kept thinking about was how close she was! So that was my lovely weekend.

I'm still hocking (spelling?) up a storm. Lovely. And I always feel like I have a hairball stuck in my throat. Again, lovely. Not really, but I went to the Doctor yesterday. And I hate going to the doctor with a passion, because I usually get better on my own. I scheduled the appointment long before I even got this to begin with-but I figured I might as well tell her about it. She gave me some "knock out" medicine, and I love her for it. Sleep has definitely improved.

There is nothing that makes me happier than Fashion Weeks. I love New York's. I love LA's. But to attend Paris Fashion Week, would make my life. No seriously. Just to sit in the Chanel Couture tent, I would die a happy little bee. But I have to say though...I am so not diggin' this new look on my waif idol Keira Knightley. The "indie" bangs as I like to call 'em look good on Daisy Lowe and rocker chicks of the like, but not on Oscar nominated "serious" actor. It doesn't make her stand out. She looks like any other old skinny Brit, and it covers up her beautifully intense eyes. Ah, can't blame the girl for trying.

GIve me them bright lights, long nights...

After the longest (and I do mean, LONGEST) week of my life; having battled through the first day of school, a 101 degree fever, a severe sore throat, an audition for Anything Goes, a callback for Anything Goes, and finally getting cast, whilst coughing, dripping and congested. Needless to say, a day of rest is much needed. I am very proud of George for getting cast as Moonface, while I get to play an Angel named Purity. Obviously it's not my first choice-but at least I'll get to wear amazing costumes and strut my stuff.

Apart from that I missed the Inauguration. I was sick in bed, drowning in my fever. But luckily Geo tivo'd it and I will be seeing it as soon as I have some kind of break.

I'm very happy to hear about all the great things our new President has done so far for our country. And he's only been there 3 days! It's quite amazing.

Off to make dinner with the lovebug...more to come when I'm not high on medication. And when I have more to say.

Current Want:

I'm bound to answer...

I'm a shoe freak. Always have been, always will be.

The ones on the top there. That is my DREAM pair. I literally have dreams about it. Ever since I started following Rumi Neely's fabulous fashion blog, appropriately named FASHION TOAST, I've been dreaming about her Sam Edelman boots. I couldn't find a pair for the longest time, because apparently they sold out within 5 hours. But lo and behold-I find a pair on Ebay, but it's up for $385 and getting higher by the minute (it doesn't end for another 4 days!) So I will resort to the last three. Granted they are not as amazing as the Sam Edelman boots, but they'll keep me satisfied and happy for a while. I think I'm getting the studded ankle boots first. In tan. Because Geo will kill me if I get another pair of black shoes. I've been really into studs lately. We were at my haven, Forever 21 the other day, and squeed with delight when I saw this really cute black studded vest. Geo gave me a look, and decided against it. But I'll go back for it one of these days, and wear it with GLEE!

Time to rehearse. I am desperate need of it. Tah Tah for now.

I've been a sinner, I've been a saint...

The Golden Globes was an exciting awards show last night. How much did I cry and jump up and down when Kate Winslet won, not one, but two of the night's biggest categories?!!! I have been such a fan of hers for a LONG time, and even though this year might not have been her best acting achievement (I wanted her to win for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), having The Reader and Revolutionary Road to showcase her talents is quite enough. I say. And again, Slumdog Millionaire won Best Picture! I have to see this film, like now...

Now to the fun part...

As usual, with awards season, comes my Golden Globes Best and Worst Dressed List:

Worst Dressed

5.) Maggie Gyllenhaal in Lanvin. I'm fine with the shape and cut of this dress. Even the folds on the shoulder gave it a more avant-garde feel. What worried me was the print. Leopard print at an awards show is never a good thing. I admire her for being one of maybe two people who showed up with a print dress, but come on. There's taking a risk, and then there's trying too hard.

4.) Marisa Tomei in Unknown. Just the fact that I searched and searched to see who designed this frock, and could not find out, says it all. She has a gorgeous body! My God-for her age-sheesh! I would kill to look like that at 40-something. But she hid it under a white ruffled shirt, and a long black skirt. She looks like she's about to go to a Pirate party.

3.) Jennifer Lopez in Marchesa. Okay, just because you're at the Golden Globes, doesn't mean you have to dress like the statue. It was too much of everything-skin, butt, shimmer, shine, gold! It was just way too frou frou, and another example of trying too hard. Hated it.

2.) Cameron Diaz in Chanel Haute Couture. She does so well at premieres, parties, press conferences, even shopping. Bring her to an awards show, and you end up with this mess of a dress. First of all-Pink on a RED carpet, never looks good. Valentine's day is still a month a way. looks so wrinkled! Why?! Why would you wear something that takes so much time and effort at place like this?

1.) Renee Zellweger in Carolina Herrera. My first thought when I saw her, was "Are her breasts exposed?!" That's never a good when you're talking about red carpet moment. The victorian look is very in right now, but matronly is not. The whole thing was probably meant to look goth-chic, but turned out to be drab-bleak! It's awful. Oh well, I never really expect much from Renee Zellweger nowadays.

Best Dressed

5.) Elizabeth Banks in J. Mendel. She looked so flawlessly romantic. I'm not really a huge fan of hers, acting or otherwise, but when I saw that dress on the red carpet-I just about sighed it was so beautiful. The hair went perfectly along with it-and it had just the right amount of romance, that didn't make you want to vomit. Lovely.

4.) Kate Beckinsale in J. Mendel. This wasn't going to be on my best dressed list. When I first saw it, I liked it, but I was extremely bothered by her hair. Kate Beckinsale has gorgeous hair-but she always puts it up in this side-part, severe updo for every awards show. I was getting so tired of it. But in the end, I couldn't deny the look of the dress on her. She looks like a Greek goddess in the pure white, with the unique accent of ruffles along the chest. It's very sophisticated. And my favorite "mermaid" style dress of the night.

3.) Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace. Only the one and only Angelina could pull this look off, and do it perfectly. The slinkiness of the dress, and the way it just falls on her lithe frame-it's to die for. Not to mention, the hair and the best accessory of all, Mr. Brad Pitt himself. It's a win-win for her, even if she didn't go home with the Best Actress statue.

2.) Kate Winslet in Yves Saint Laurent. This is an example of the Not-so-basic black. She is so sleek, sexy, and sophisticated at the same time. The velvet belt, adds just the right amount of accent to her already stunning dress, but also emphasizes her narrow waist. It's so near perfection, I was so happy for her in all senses that evening.

1.) January Jones in Versace. I noticed as I was reviewing my best dressed list last night, that I stayed pretty close to the neutrals. Not a lot of the colors really gave me the right impression, and were either too much or too little. But when I saw Jones' Versace number-my jaw dropped to the floor. It is so breathtakingly beautiful, I just about died. Old Hollywood glamour came to life in my eyes, and she reminded me so much of Grace Kelly. The color of the gown, the hair, the makeup-was just right. Plus, the dress has pockets!!! That's always a plus, in my book.

Jealous, Weeping...

This post has nothing to do with either of those things, actually....

Anyway, I love awards season. I just finished watching The Critics Choice Awards. My fave couple in the whole wide world, apart from my own of course, Brangelina were there! Hurrah. It's always great seeing them out, without the crazy stalkerazzi following them and their giant herd of kiddies around. It's pleasant, and beautiful. Speaking of beautiful...Heath Ledger won for his performance in The Dark Knight. This was no surprise to anyone of course-and it's been almost a year-but still, the waterworks began, and I was really emotional for maybe 10 minutes post win. It was a bittersweet moment. I cannot wait for the Golden Globes on Sunday. Double Hurrah!

Secrets are funny. I just told one of my best friends one of mine the other day. It felt good to get it out. And she still loves me. And it's all good in the hood. The circle has made it's way around, and it is now complete. My, that is fabulous. This is going to be my year though...I can just feel it. And if it's not...well, let's just say 2010 will be very depressing.

Well then, time for me to cuddle up with some New Moon! Goodnight.

Have I found you, Flightless Bird...?

Be still my heart, Iron and Wine. I will love you forever, Sam Beam. Flightless Bird, American Mouth, is probably the best song I've heard in a long time. He's going to be on Jay Leno tomorrow night! Yippee! Make sure to tune in. I'm writing that mostly for my own benefit, so that I don't forget. Even though I do have it written down in my planner. Best to be safe than sorry.

I'm hungers. But husbandee has us on this new 5 meals a day program, to keep our metabolism going. It's supposed to be the best way to lose weight. Basically, there's the usual breakfast, lunch and dinner, and then two snacks in between. And so, I can't have dinner until 9. Boo. But I've noticed that I've been losing some poundage-albeit 2 or 3 lbs.

Geo finally got to see The Dark Knight. It's always great watching movies that I've already seen, with him. I like looking at his facial expressions. It was a success, but he wasn't completely in love with it as much as I was. Oh well, I'm just glad he liked it.

2009 has been great so far. We celebrated my sister's bday last friday, by having lunch at Katsuya, then we saw The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I liked it, but it was too long. The full review can be viewed on my facebook. But as far as my sister's day goes, it was a complete success! She finally got her first ipod, and was freaking out over it. And she loved all of her presents, so it was good. It was really great to see her.

Anyway, that's all for now....

All of your street light eyes wide on my plastic toys

1 year old

17 years old

Happy Birthday to the best sister in the whole world!
I can't believe she's 17. I feel old. I am so honored to be her big sister. Having watched her grow into this beautiful, graceful, intelligent young woman, has been such an experience. I can't wait to see her continue to grow!

I love you, Victoria
