Busy, busy, busy as a bee, bee, bee

I wish I got more mail. I've checked my inbox about 5 times today, and I haven't gotten a single piece. What a bummer.

I can't believe it's Monday already. I mean, where did the weekend go? I swear, I'm not ready for real life again. Babysitting, blah. 4 more days. On Friday, she starts school. Kindergarten, where the hell did time go? I mean, she's 5 already. I was only 11 when she was born. I remember it well though. It seems like a long time, but it's gone so quickly. Thus is life, I guess.

Wednesday night is the Dexter Freebish concert at House of Blues. Friday night is Barenaked Ladies. I have a STUNTS board meeting Friday. Then another one next monday, and a third next Friday. They are three hours each (ouch). The one on Friday the 31st conflicts with my nail appointment though. As sissy and "oh, my nails are more important than a serious commitment" as that sounds, it's for the wedding (which is now less than two weeks away. What the hell? It's so close). I'll be going late to the meeting on the 31st.

Also, twice next week, I have to go to a Freshman interest meeting about theatre. Basically it's an informational meeting about Theatre, Stage Crew and STUNTS, as well as the other performances. Since I partake in all of this, I have to be there as a spokesmodel and to be inviting and give open opinions on the theatre program. It rocks, just join and you'll see. Save me the hassle of actually talking in depth, please.

My first week off from babysitting, and it's going to absolutely fly by. Then comes the wedding, a couple days off, and *bam* school. Fuck it, I'm so not looking forward to school again. I don't want to have to study, and do homework and write essays. To work hard, and start spending 11/24 hours there everyday. Once tech week starts for the plays, I'll be there a full 13-hours a day. Hi, half of my day at school? I think I'd rather poke hot rods in my eyes.

I guess I like it, otherwise I wouldn't toucher myself like this.

Shit! When does play practice start? I'm an assistant director of the Fall Play, "The Heidi Chronicles", so I have to be at rehearsals, but I don't know when they start. Fuck. Hopefully not until next week, because 1.) I can't this week, and 2.) I'll be able to check when I'm at school on Friday for my STUNTS Board meeting. I hope I'm not just being stupid and be missing anything. much stress. As if my back wasn't tense enough, school will not help. And my stomach is already turning with anxiety. YUCK!!! I HATE THIS SO MUCH!

Wow, well that was the opposite of therapeutic, now I'm more stressed. Fuck it. Need sleep...need relaxation...need to see puppies on the Today Show tomorrow (at 7am...arg!)

Well, night all. I can't guarantee it will be a good one.

My Problems with the Cinematography on the Today Show

They should not and I mean never, cut off JC during the shot of diva hips. I realize Justin's the frontman, but why zoom on him at that moment. Same goes for the floor hump. JC MUST be in the floor hump shot.

Commercial break almost over, must continue taping...

    It was Gone, but then they stopped singing...

The Today Show

So I set the TV to turn on at 7, and during his opening spiel, Matt Lauer said NSYNC would be on at 8:30. So I set the TV timer to 8:15, rolled over, and went back to sleep.

The TV turns on again, and I grab the remote (well, flail my arm around until my hand finds it.) At 8:24, the boys come on and I tape and only half watch. I'll go back and re-watch it after they sing "Bye, Bye, Bye".

I finally "woke" up when the stupid camera man cut off JC during the Diva Hips part of "Pop".

Finished watching Gone, then crappily recorded the weather. I figured I wouldn't need to record that part, but of course Al Rocker was talking to Lance and Joey before it, and Justin added his two-cents on the weather map. I wish I would have just let the tape run. Damn.

I'm now patiently waiting for the boys to come back on at the end. I thought it ended at 9, apparently I was wrong. I really don't want to be watching "how to manage your debt" with Danial Somebody with Newsweek. Blah. I can't even get a credit card, so I don't really care about that.

[me stepping away from the computer because I have nothing substanceful to say about the Today Show right now]

"Bye, Bye, Bye" was the same as it always is, but it's still good. I'm tired and will now be taking a nap.

    Nothing good....

So busy....

I can't believe all I've been up to recently. My phone has practically been ringing off the hook. I had to make my niece mac and cheese for lunch (which takes forever). Then I had to give Zoe a bath. After which, I took my shower. It feels like I haven't sat down in hours (I don't think I actually have).

*sigh* But now I have some down time, in which I decided to update journal. Yippy!

Later, I have to go to Target. Must pick up some blank VHS tapes (so I can tape the Teen Choice Awards. I will fast-forward through everything buy NSYNC, so it's a waste of 3 hours, but I'm going to be out tonight). I also need gum, frappuccino, AAA batteries, and I think that was it. Gah, I don't think I have money for this. Wait! I have $30. Score! But I also need to buy dinner tonight, and we might be going to "Paint 'n' Party", though I really don't want to. Maybe I just won't buy anything to paint.

I enjoy Mandy Moore's video for crush. I think it's cute. Damn it. First Britney, then Jessica, and now Mandy? This has got to stop.

Think I'm gonna watch Josie and the Pussycats. I still haven't had an opportunity to watch it yet.

Then after that, I'll have to go quickly to Target. I have to be to Lewis's house by 5:30. So little time....

    Long Way Down - Goo Goo Dolls

Just got home...time to watch Teen Choice Awards....and comments irrationally

*JC is definitely on something. Man is that boy giddy.
*Steve Fatone is sitting behind Joey (and looking extremely bored after the Moulin Huge skit.
*3 of the Teen Choice Breakthrough people have opened for NSYNC (Meredith, Christina Milina and Dante Thomas)
*And 3LW, Dream and Eden's Crush are there (they also were opening acts).
*Yippy for NSYNC on Choice Single - and Choice Album - and Choice Concert...
*JC is insane (to Lance) "Talk! Talk! Talk!" [Trying to promote his sweetie?!?]
*Justin's in the back (good)
*JC's "Thanks guys!" was funny. That boy needs to relax though.
*If that's all the boys are on, I can tape over the other hour and 50 minutes. That would be good. Such a waste of tape.
*So torn...TV Personality...Carson or Jimmy. I love them both....the winner is: Carson. That was predictable. Yeah Carson! (Although it makes me think that he's in a plot
*What the hell is Aaron Carter wearing on his feet?
*Do you think performing bad songs for little kids with his brother makes Nick feel inferior (well, I mean more so than being 2nd best boyband.)
*Yippy for Julia Stiles (sucks that it had to be for a bad movie though. 10 Things, now there was a great flick)
*Two random thoughts...I wish I knew if NSYNC were going to ge on again...and I still haven't gotten my free Hit-Clip from Snapple. Whores.
*Choice Rock Track...yeah Aerosmith, and Lifehouse, I wouldn't be able to choose. 50+ years old, and they are still hot. Joe Perry is amazing! I will miss Steven when he's quiet.
*I don't like Mariah, but I think it's horrible for Carrot Top to be making fun of her when she's really sick. Also, I don't find him funny at all.
*Brit looked cute at the awards
*7th Heaven is going to win, because they were featured in the "who's here catagory"...I was right. They announced it. 3LW, the Cast of 7th Heaven...I love Barry Wilson. He smells good
*Fast Forward through Usher...he's cute, but I don't like his music.
*Yeah commercial for Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
*Yeah Ben! Poor drug-addicted baby. I still love him though. He looks good scruffy. Get better soon, honey!
*Britney's going to win Choice Female...and she did.
---They really shouldn't tell you who wins in the opening credits. They listed people there as being the Cast of 7th Heaven, Ben Affleck, Britney, far, they've been the winners. Geez guys, be a little more obvious next time.---
*Awww! Cutie Juppy and Pinky kiss. They are so adorable!
*So many audience clips of the puppies, but I don't think it's worth keeping this on tape.
*Legally Blond will win for Choice Movie because Reese was in the opening credits (okay, I know I've made my point...I will shut up now).
*Ouch...the Pam Anderson "I love rock groups, they're definitely up my alley" - that was just wrong. Funny but wrong. Blink will win (credits)
*I never made the connection...Michelle Tracktenburg from Buffy was in Harriet the Spy.
*I can't believe Freddie Prinze is going out with Rat Girl. But, oh!!! "My inspiration for achieving my goals is Freddie." That's adorable. (not as cute as Jup and Brit though).
*Justin is Choice Hottie....I guess I can see that.
*The skit with Chris Kattan was not good enough to save. It'll be taped over as soon as I finish watching the show
*I wanna be Sandra..hug all the boys...and why was Joey (and Chris Kattan) the only one to get a kiss?? Huh? Huh?
*JoJo was there, where was KC?
* would you like to be introduced as "Bionce's sister, Solange?" That would suck.
*Meredith seems a little old to be in that Breakthrough group.
*Mandy Moore doesn't look good. Honey, bad hair, bad shirt, no good over all.
*Yeah JC for standing for Destiny (then the other NSYNCers for joining). [Of course it was obvious they didn't win otherwise it would have been announced with Single, Album and Concert.]

Overall, that was not worth the trouble.
