top 10 of the year 10

i know i know...i owe you days 2, 3, and 4 of my cruise recap...i promise you will have them soon...the problem is i like to blog on the train...those entries are too long to finish on the train...so i hit save so i can come back later...but they only save to the blogger website and not to my phone...so to finish them i have to sit at my computer...but after sitting in front of a computer all day its not always the first thing i want to do when i get home...ya know...sorry for the long rambling...i just dont want any one to be upset...haha!...

so the purpose of this blog is to put a nice little bow on the end of the year that was 2010...and instead of recapping the whole year i decided to make a top 10 list!!!...enjoy!!!

10) lifehouse / kris allen concert
i had a ball with k dubbs at this concert....kris allen was WAY more entertaining than i thought he would be...at one point he asked everyone to sing along, then said but you dont have to if you dont want to i mean you paid money to see me sing not to sing yourself...haha...so cute!...and he came out in the audience for one of the songs...he was really great...as for lifehouse they were awesome too...i really love their music!!!...this was probably the best non bsb concert i have ever been to!...

9) becoming a TCU fan!!!
this makes the list because of its randomness and awesomeness...i was in atlantic city for a bsb concert in june which happened to be the same day as the usa vs england world cup match...since little one is a huge soccer fan she couldnt miss it (ps she was rooting for england...talk about anti american...haha)...anyway...we went to a sports bar to watch it...we were there way before the game started so they randomly had college baseball on the tvs...we had no idea who was playing...orange vs purple...of course i picked the purple team to root for...and it didnt hurt that they were loosing by about 10 runs so they had that whole underdog thing going for them...haha...as we watched we learned more and more about the teams playing...thats when k dubbs and i decided we would be horned frog fans for life!!!...good thing we did...they made it to the last round before the championships of the college world series...and now the football team is going to be in the rose bowl!...and to top it off they are going to be part of the big east...which means we'll be able to go to some games!...haha!...see i told you...random! =)

8) fantasy football champion!
yeah thats right! i won!!!! im so proud of myself!!! my rookie season and i pull off the big upset in the super bowl!!! yay!!! aaron rodgers and arian foster are my heroes!!!

7)Hemingway's
one night towards the end of the summer i went out with my cousins and their friends to Hemingway's in seaside...the night doesnt make the list because of Hemingway's but because of everything else that occurred that night...everything from all the boy meets world quotes...to finding the undapants video on YouTube...to the "lottery tickets"...to the cheese balls...to "maybe if you didnt walk like this"...to trying to go to sleep but being unsuccessful due to laughing too hard...it was just a really fun night!!!...and if you were there youre probably laughing right now just thinking about it!...

6) friday night ice cream
i went dts most weekends this summer...the best part about it was friday night ice cream...as soon as i got down there after work i threw sweats on grabbed my girls and strolled to summer sweets!...my ice cream of choice was cake batter in a waffle cone with rainbow sprinkles...omg im salivating just thinking about it...soo good....but it wasnt just about the ice cream...it was about taking a stroll with k dubbs and little one...it was the perfect way to unwind after working all week...

5) officially meeting concert guy
i know that my friendship with him never went further than just friends but im okay with that...and im so glad that arti made us go over to him and introduce ourselves...ive had a lot of good times with him...all of which are well document on this blog (feel free to read the archives...just click on concert guy to the right and they should all come up)...haha...i also think that it was a big step for me in the grand scheme of life...

4) this is us tour!!!!
backstreet boys!!!!! aaaaahhhhh!!!!! do i really need to say anything else?!?...i went to this show 4 times this summer and loved it more and more every time!!! you can check out my review here if you havent done so already!

3) 25th birthday bash: local edition
omg sooo much fun!...this was the first time i ever threw an awesome party!!!!...i know, im a little late but what are you gonna due about it?...anyway i told everyone to come but i didnt thing anyone would show up...before i knew it there was tons of people there!...and everyone was having a blast...but more importantly i had a blast!!!!

2)25th birthday bash: disney edition!
its the happiest place on earth!!!! so of course i picked disney as the place i wanted to celebrate my 25th birthday!...i am such a little kid and i love love love disney world...it was so awesome!!! yay!!! i cant wait to go back!!!

1) BACKSTREET BOYS CRUISE 2010!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

here's to hoping 2011 will be even better!!!!!

BSB Cruise 2010 (day three)

welcome to beautiful cozumel mexico! this is where the tide brought us on day three!!!

beach party:

unfortunately little sis and i did not attend this shin dig...i heard it was tons of fun...it cost extra and since i was already paying for the cruise itself for me and little sis i really couldnt afford to buy both of us tickets to the party...so sad right...oh well...instead we stayed on the boat...checked out some more doors...played in a mini golf tourney (which i totally won...i have a golden ship on a stick to prove it!)...chatted with a super hott guy...and just relaxed...in hind sight we should have gotten off the boat and strolled around the shops and stuff but we didnt and whats done is done...(but then again we wouldnt have met that guy...omg he was so hott!!...sorry but i cant get over it...haha!)

dinner:
we sat with our friends from alabama again at the same table...tonight we saw brian come in...everyone said hi brian...so he said "hi, i dont know all of your names but hi!"...and then his son walked by wearing a sombrero...so i said hey i like your hat...so he said "my cousins are making me wear it"...so cute!!!...other than that dinner was uneventful...

door dec winner announcement:
we took our seat in the theater...i was super nervous...i thought we had an excellent chance of winning!...if we didnt win i thought for sure we would get a shout out...of course i thought my door was the best...it was my blood, sweat and tears after all...(and yes all three of those occurred...in the form of paper cuts...over three hours spent just on winding ribbon...and the mini melt down i had when a piece was ruined...haha!!!)...but all the positive feedback we had from everyone on the ship is what really made me believe i could pull out the win! (even the hott guy loved it...he said "your attention to detail is really phenomenal"...haha!)...so they started calling out doors and they didnt say ours...so we were thinking omg the winner has to be us...i was shaking i was so nervous...i couldnt handle it anymore...the they said the winner...and it wasnt us....(can i get a collective aaaawwww???)...i was in such a whirl wind of emotion then...i went from super excited...to nervous...to deflated...to angry...to sad...back to angry...the worst part about the whole thing is the winning door want even that good...it had a locker (which was cool) and the rest was just old magazine covers and posters and stuff...if i knew all i had to do to win was slap some posters on the door it would have saved me a lot of time, money, and effort...there were sooo many deserving doors...(heres the winner and a two of my faves)...after calming down i realized that even though we didnt win it still meant a lot to me that everyone we talked to seemed to like it...and what matters the most is that i LOVED it!!!...to be honest i have no idea how to top it for next year...

shinning star karaoke:
this may have been the best of all the scheduled events...the boys made us feel like we were just hanging out with them...a little karaoke with some friends...nbd!...haha!!!...it was sooo much fun!!!...some of the highlights were: 10,000 promises (nick was giving the girl pointers on being super dramatic while singing...very funny)...shape of my heart (this girl was so good! at the end aj said someone get this girl a record deal...and she was sitting by us so after she sand you could tell that it truly meant the world to her being on the stage singing with the boys)...like a virgin (aj and his bff madonna mark sang this little gem)...living on a prayer and dont stop believin' (always fun sing along songs!!)...bust a move (the boys sang this one!! eeek!!)...and by far the BEST of the night was baby got back (omg...words cant describe how awesome it was...you have to check it out on YouTube!!!!)...i know i dont have links to all of them but i would highly suggest heading over to youtube and doing a quick search...you will def be entertained...i promise!!!....now the question is how does one top baby got back??? do you sing something similar like rappers delight?...or do you sing something completely different like proud mary????....so what do you think should i start practicing a hip hop a hippy to the hippy to the hip hip hop...OR rollin rollin rollin on the river?!?!?....oh the choices...haha!!!

well thats it for now folks...ill be back with day 4 shortly but until then please check out days one and two...and as always dont be afraid to leave me some love... <3>

BSB Cruise 2010 (day two)

heeyyy!!! whats up bloggers?!? im back and its time to talk about day 2 of the fabulous backstreet boys cruise!!! sorry its taking me soo long...

key west:

the ship was docked in key west from early in the morning until about 2 i think...little sis and i didnt wake up too early so after we got ready and ate breakfast and all that jazz it was already after 11...we got off the boat and had to take a trolley into town...we didnt do much there except stroll around and take a few pictures...oh and we got a super cut ornament for our christmas tree!!!...the guy must have seen our wristbands and said i can put "backstreet boys cruise 2010" and your names on the ship...so i said "omg! really?! i must have it!!!"...haha!!!....you know its gonna be front and center on the tree this year thats for sure!!!...so after we made the purchase we headed back to the ship...

this is us Q&A:

i really enjoyed this...it was just 2+ hours of the boys answering our questions...they gave a lot of good answers...nothing juicy or gossipy (which would have been awesome) but all genuine!...lets see i dont remember all the questions but ill share some highlights...

~BRIAN once purchased 2 cars in the same week

~HOWIE threw an ironing board out the window of a hotel

~NICK is not afraid to pee with the microphone on

~AJ's fav unreleased song is set it off

~leigh's (howie's wife) freebie would be Leonardo DiCaprio

another thing to note from this event is in the middle of it little sis turned to me and said "i feel like all of nicks answers are the same as what you would say"...so i was like omg you're right!...haha...lets look at some examples...(a: equals my answer. n: equals nicks answer)
who's your favorite backstreet boy? a:howie...n: howie
do you ever forget the lyrics to your songs? (my answer is based on forgetting dances) a: sometimes in the middle of a dance i get that omg what am i doing feeling but then i realize that im doing everything right and the dance is almost over... n: (asks other boys) do you guys ever get that feeling that you dont know what the words are but they come out anyway...then he said something about autopilot...

what song feels new every time you sing it? a: all i have to give (well hear it for me)... n: all i have to give

out if all the placed in the world where you have never been, where do you want to go the most? a: alaska... n: Antarctica... okay do this one isnt the same but its close enough...haha!!!
capitan's dinner:
when we got to the dinning room we were sat at a 6 person table...2 of the people didnt speak english so we didnt talk to them...but we did start chatting with the lovely married couple from alabama (gabby and charles) at the table...obviously we talked about bsb...somehow it came up that we saw howie at charlotte airport last year (which you can read about here)...so gabby said was it after gravediggers ball? we went to that!..so i said yeah it was...so she said we were standing in the front to the right...i said no way! we were standing the the front to the right...they said we were standing next to a girl with pig tails and a flannel shirt...i said i was wearing pig tails and a flannel shirt!!!!...they said no, it couldnt have been you, this girl went to london to see bsb...i said yeah! that was me!!!....so how crazy is that??? they are from alabama and we are from jersey...we randomly met in north carolina...and then were randomly sat with each other at dinner in the middle of the ocean!...crazy! right?!?...


masquerade night:
this was a fun night...everyone had beautiful masks...i liked my mask and the design i painted on it but i wish i added feathers and stuff and cut the eye holes bigger...it was hard to see out of so i had to take it off...oh well its too late now...anyway back to the party!!!...they played a lot of bsb songs...and nick played some of his new songs...which i LOVE...they are way different from the songs on his first album but they are soo good!!!...AND the highlight of the night was when they played a sample of the NEW nkotBSB song...LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!!...i cant wait for it to be all over the radio...its gonna be huge!!!...

after the party we went back to our room...turned on channel 36...and went to sleep

ill be back soon with day 3's recap and it wont be so long this time!!!...while you wait be sure to head over to laura's bsb cruise blog...she has some awesome pictures and videos!!!...you wont be disappointed!!! =)

BSB Cruise 2010 (day one)

so lets start off by saying AAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! did the cruise really just happen?!?...im still in a little bit of shock...haha!...okay so now that that's out of the way lets get down to business....

i was lucky enough to be a part of bsbcruise2010...and it was AMAZING!!!...a lot happened over the course of the trip and i want to share all the highs and lows and everything in between without missing any details...so i decided it would be best to break it up a little...=)

embarkation:

little sis and i arrived in miami on wednesday night to guarantee that there would be no problems with flights on thursday morning...if i missed the boat im not really sure what would have happened but i know i would have been devastated...

we got to the port around 11:30 or so on thursday morning...checked in and got on the boat...since we couldnt go to our room until 1:30, we had some time to kill...so just like everyone else we went over to the buffet with all of our carry ons...we settled down at a table...i looked over to the left and there was AJ sitting 2 tables away from us!!!....(eeekkk!!!)...then i got up to grab something to eat...as i was walking towards the buffet line HOWIE walked right by me!....(eeekkk!!!)...after i got my food i headed back to the table and saw BRIAN eating lunch with his family...(more squealing!! haha!!)...so within about 20 minutes i already saw 3 of the 4 backstreet boys just strollin around...and from that moment i knew that it was going to be a great trip!!!...

door dec:

at 1:30 little sis and i were finally able to get to our room and start working on decorating our door...it took a few hours to get it 100% completed but it was worth every minute and it came out sooo good!!! (for now ill put up the pic i took on my phone but hopefully i can put one from my camera)...please stay tuned for the results...ill post them on day 3...

everybody feud:

this was the first official event held in the theater...we had assigned seats for everything in the theater...too bad our seats were in the very last row all the way at the top...ugh...oh well at least we were there!...

this game show was just like family feud...which happens to be my favorite game show ever!...and its totally one of my goals in life to be a contestant...haha!...so i was super excited to see how it would turn out...of course i wanted to participate and say things like "good answer! good answer!" but was i so lucky? of course not...i was not one of the "randomly" selected backstreet girls...which btw none of them were very entertaining...i would have been way better up there...but whatever...

the game proceeded to be just like the real family fued only way better!...the people surveyed were the fans on the boat...and all the question had to do with the backstreet boys...NICK had no idea how to pay...BRIAN was play fighting with the other team...HOWIE couldnt believe that the fans thought he wore speedos...and AJ loved that the fans thought he would be a porn star if he wasnt a backstreet boy...in the end the backstreet girls won and got a tote bag filled with signed stuff...

she's a dream dating game:

just like the real dating game complete with cheesy 70's backdrop...for each guy 3 girls were "randomly" selected...we found out that if you won, not only would you have the satisfaction of winning but you would also get to go up on stage durring sunday's concert...how cool is that?!?...

AJ was up first...one of the questions was do your best bsb choreo...the second girl did everybody...but the other 2 girls just danced...this is the moment i wished i was up there the most because i would have done larger than life...everything from the stomp clapping part...to the robot part...to the chorus everyone knows...the crowd would have gone wild and i def would have won...haha!!!...i dont remember the other questions but in the end girl number 3 won!
next came BRIAN...it was during this time that litte sis and i decided that not only does b.l.l.a look like brian but they act the same too...everything from what they say to how they say it to how they walk to their mannerisms to everything in between...they could be twins...we couldnt believe it!!!...anyway back to the game...one of the questions brian was given to ask was whats your fav position...he was dying...so embarrassed...and i understand completely...haha!...the first girl was embarrassed too...the second girl had no shame...but the third girl got clever and said that the quarterback is he favorite position on a football team...and that answer is what scored her the win...good job girl number 3!!! (just for the record i immediately thought of ballet positions and thought well i kinda like 4th the best...haha!!!)


my main squeeze HOWIE was 3rd...what i remember most about howie's turn is that brian came back out and was semi acting as host...it was funny!!...one of the questions howie asked was which bsb song best describes you and why...girl number 3 said spanish eyes...im pretty sure thats the answer that pushed her over the top for the win...


last but not least was NICK...brian made his way back onto the stage for this one too...but this time he sat down next to girl number 3 giving her answers to nicks questions...one of the questions was "if you were an alien who would you abduct and why? but you can say any of the backstreet boys"...i dont remember what the girls said but i know my answer: the male cast of the vampire diaries...everyone not just damon and stephan but i want tyler and matt and jeremy and alaric and uncle mason and even uncle john...if you watch the show or not you have to admit that those boys are hott!!...well im not here to talk about tvd im here to talk about bsb so back to the game...making it a clean sweep, nick picked girl number 3...lol... = )
international luv deck party:
USA! USA! USA!...it was clear that the boys are popular all over the world...there were girls from japan, Australia, Brazil, Netherlands, England, Ireland, Argentina, Portugal, Canada, USA, and many more!!!...i loved seeing everyone's native costumes...the boys were festive too...AJ wore a kilt...NICK wore some sort of Japanese jacket...HOWIE represented puerto rico...and BRIAN wore an uncle same costume and his wife had a matching girl version of it...they looked amazing...brian and leighanne Had the BEST costumes of the night!!!...the boys were up on the higher deck on a stage type thing...they were awesome...AJ was an excellent host and revealed his new found love of "friends"...ummm i love friends!!!...haha...he went on to poll the crowd on which friend we thought they were...aj = joey...brian = chandler...howie = ross...and nick = phoebe...haha...when aj told nick about this he had no idea who phoebe was...so once again nick was clueless on simple pop culture reference...oh boy...lets see what else happened...they tried to come into the crowd but that didnt really work out too well...they were def mobbed...i wish some girls would just relax and realize if you dont mob them they will come out in the crowd and hang out...but if you do mob them, they are more like to run and hide when your screaming their name alright (i just had to say it...haha...sorry)

i think thats it for now...ill be back with my recap of day 2...until then happy blogging!!!

its a good time to be a fan!

this weekend was an exciting one...and anyone who is a harry potter/jets/backstreet boys fan like myself will tell you the same thing...i know none of these has anything to do with the other but it was a great weekend for all 3!...

lets start off with harry potter (*said in brittish accent*)...friday was the official opening day of harry potter and the deathly hallows part 1...(or hp7a as i like to call it...haha!)...obvi i went to see it friday...i would have gone thursday at midnight but unfortunately someone has to be responsible and go to work...so that option was out...instead i went with cool girl after work...oh.my.god...sooo freakin good!!!...i loved it so much that i saw it again on saturday night!!!....i dont really want to say to much in case you havent seen it yet...but trust me when i say this is a DO NOT MISS!!!!...the only complaint that i have is that it ended...haha!...it was 2.5 hours but i didnt think it felt that long...and then it cuts you off right when the story is going to get really good!...i know this because i read the books...*gasp* i know! i read the books? how could that be???...haha!!!...anyway i cant wait until hp7b comes out...its going to be amazing!!! =)

sunday afternoon i went to the jets game...J! E! T! S! JETS! JETS! JETS! WOOOOO!!!!!! they played the Houston texans...and wow! what a game!...they had a huge lead going into the 4th quarter and then in typical jet fashion they blew it and Houston went up...the only way we could win was with a touchdown...too bad there was less than 2 minutes left...not impossible but it was improbable...so in typical jet fan fashion the stadium emptied out...less than half the fans were still there...of course i stayed...my grandfather taught me never to leave a game early cause you never know what could happen...and boy was i glad that i stayed!!!...sanchez threw a bomb down the field to a wide open edwards...everyone went wild!!! it was another jets FIRST DOWN!!!...so then there was 16 seconds left, 1st and goal, with the ball on the 6...sanchez threw another great pass to santonio holmes right into the end zone....TOUCHDOWN JETS!!!! i thought the people went wild before...no i was wrong...this is when they went really wild!!! ahhhh!!! im not even sure i can express in words the level of excitement going on in that stadium and that moment...it was just crazy!!!

now the jets are 8 and 2...can you believe it?? 8 and 2???...its been a LONG time since the jets have had a season like this one...there arent any that i can remember clearly...its just a really fun time to be a loyal jets fan...if you stick with them long enough they are bound to surprise everyone with an awesome season!!!...im so proud of them!!!

as if that game wasnt enough excitement for one person to handle i came home to watch the american music awards...my backstreet boys closed the show with new kids on the block...hands down the BEST performance of the night!!!...if you didnt see it go to YouTube right now and watch it!!!...the who thing was perfect...i loved everything...from the opening mash up of everybody and hangin tough...to the old school clips in the background during i want it that way...to the proof they were really singing during step by step...to the awesome dance break...to the classic right stuff dance...to "all you people cant you see cant you see n - k - o - t - B - S - B!"...yeah just perfect!!!...i am sooo pumped for the nkotBSB tour next summer...i already have tickets to one show...but im def gonna need more!!!

right now is such a good time to be a backstreet boys fan!!!...so many good things are happening...this tour with the new kids is gonna be so amazing...even my mom said she wants to go!!...i just cant wait for everyone to know what ive always known...backstreet boys are here to stay!!! =)

the official soundtrack of the summer of ten

thats right folks i have created an official soundtrack to the summer of ten!...i know that you are all yelling at the screen saying "but ashley, its practically winter...what are you doing still talking about the summer???"...well the answer to that is a simple one...i am a procrastinator...haha!!!...durring the summer k dubbs and i decided we would create a cd with all of our summer songs on it...so this way we could listen to it and remember the awesome summer we had!!...so every time we came up with a song we would put it on the list...having a list was great...too bad it took me 2 months to put the list onto an actual cd for listening enjoyment...i finally have it and it totally brings back memories from the summer...goal accomplished!...

so without further ado i bring you the track list (along with a little blerb) to the official soundtrack of the summer of ten!!!

1) taio cruz ~> dynamite ~> the first time i heard this song was at my friends wedding in july...k dubbs was with me and she said "how about this sound for our cd?"...i said i never heard it before...next thing i knew it was all over the place...LOVE IT!!!...so i went back to k dubbs and told her its def going on!!!

2) jason derulo ~> in my head~> this song doesnt really have a story we just like it!...haha!

3) backstreet boys~> bigger~>i took k dubbs to her first backstreet concert this summer...so its only natural that a song from their newest album made the list!

4)dj otzi ~> hey baby~> ob1 offered free zumba classes...we went to them on a weekly basis...this was our fav song from class...if you dont know it download it...i promise you'll love it!!!

5)big time rush~> halfway there~> thanks to my litttle bff i became completely obsessed with btr...turns out k dubbs loved them too...haha...so of course they made the cut!

6) diamonds on my neck~> okay so i have no idea who sings this of if thats really what its called...but its one of those fun songs that you blast in the car and have tons of funs with

7) shontelle~> impossible~> no story relating to my adventures with k dubbs but i did dance to this song in my makeshift dance class

8) the script~> breakeven~> no story...just like it! =)

9) mike posner~> cooler than me~> same as above

10) michael buble~> havent met you yet~> love this song...gives me hope

11) b.o.b ~> airplanes ~>okay so im not crazy about this song but k dubbs likes it AND it has a good story...during the summer i like to sit outside and look at the stars...so i have seen many shooting stars over the years...but people would always say to me "are you sure its a shooting star and not an airplane?"...of course im sure!!!...anyway...this is why i find the chorus of this song to be so awesome

12) taio cruz~> break your heart~> please see number 8

13) selena gomez~> naturally~> this song doesnt really remind me of the summer...it reminds me of the spring...one of the nights i hung out with concert guy and co. we were on our way home...this song came on the radio...we turned it up super loud and everyone sung along...good times!...

14) backstreet boys~> panic~> this song makes the list because of its name...when we were in disney for my bday my little bff said to me on one of the rides "its dark...dont panic ashley"...it was one of the top quotes from the trip and we used it all summer...dont panic!

15) usher~> dj got us fallin in love~> this song wasnt even on the list...i just added it cause i still had space...and i love it!!!...haha!!!

16) miranda~> vamos a la playa~> as you know the world cup we this summer...the mayor was obsessed with spain...so every time they had a game the mayor would play this song to get into the spanish spirit i guess...i really could care less about soccer but the do think that this is a super fun song!!!

17) michael franti ~> say hey (i love you)~> this is just a happy feel good song...makes me smile!

18) 3oh!3 ~> my first kiss~> this song reminds me of kent on sytycd...i think its a fun song...so why not put it on...right?!

19) shots! ~> no idea who sings this...maybe its lmfao...i dont know...but who really cares...if you went to any sort of club or party or somethin this summer im sure you heard it...i dont even take shots and i love this song...it just gets you pumped and ready to go!!!

well thats it for my soundtrack...sooo...what do you think???...lol...and what songs remind you of the summer???...or do any of these songs remind you of something good?...please share...dont be afraid (or panic...haha)...i would love to know...maybe i missed something really good!...haha!!! =)

psych stars on snl...please and thank you

as you probably know last season there was a facebook campaign to get betty white to host snl...and it worked!...since then im pretty sure there have been tons of campaign to get all sorts of people on there...(i havent really followed to closely so i dont know who these people are but im pretty sure theyre out there...lol)...finally one of these campaigns came along for 2 people who actually deserve the hosting gig!...who am i talking about you ask?...why its JAMES RODAY and DULE HILL!!!!!...or better known as shawn spencer and burton guster on psych...

psych is by far one of the funniest shows ever!!!...i always tell people that they need to watch it and they kinda brush me off...but then a few weeks later they'll say to me "you know what show is awesome? PSYCH!"...of course my response is "please...i've know this for years"...haha!...oh so now you wanna know what makes the show so awesome??...there are tons of things...11 point turns..the definition of banana...shawn and gus running away and screaming...pineapple upside down cake made in an easy bake oven...pineapples in general...shawns nick names for gus...gus' little blue car...the mentalist jokes...shawn and jules <3...squirrel assassins...shawns psychic episodes...gus tapping...the super sniffer...lassie...and the list goes on and on...but the number one thing about this show is the relationship between shawn and gus...james and dule are sooo funny together!

which leads me to why i think they would be perfect for snl...i feel like lately snl has been picking big stars to host regardless if they are funny or not...dont get me wrong i love payton manning...hes an awesome quarterback...i wish he was on my fantasy team...but would i have picked him to host snl? no way!...i think if snl were to cast hosts who may not be as huge of stars but bring more to the table (and are actually funny) the show would be way better of...if i knew that the show would def be funny i would def tune in every week regardless of who the host is...does what im saying even make sense???...

i think that james and dule would bring quality back to snl...i can see it now shawn spencer coming face to face with the mentalist...how spectacular would that be?!?...or a spoof of sytycd or american idol (im currently having a flashback to "american duets" haha!)...or anything really because these 2 can make a paper bag funny!!!...

having them host the snl would also create a ton of buzz for psych!...as far as im concerned the more poeple who watch the shenanigans of shawn and gus the better...the world would totally be a happier place!!!...

so in conclusion its really a win win scenario for universal...snl ratings will go up...psych ratings will go up...everyone is happy!!!...so now the big question is how can you help to get these 2 fantabulous actors on snl? its simple...just click on this link and "like" this campaign on facebook...so easy right? right!!!

well i must be going now...please please please like this on facebook...(its already up to over 12,000 people...whaaaaaaaaaat?!? you know thats right!!!)....i promise you wont regret it!!! =)

odds and ends

hello there everyone!...ive been mia for a while and for that i apologize...will you please forgive me? yes, you will? oh excellent!!!...haha!!! so lets see what have i been up to since we last spoke??? (warning: i may be all over the place and/or start rambling so just bare with me...thanks!)

as you all already know, concert guy moved and no longer takes the train...i was doing pretty good with the whole thing...i wasnt really thinking about him too much...so i was convinced that i was completely over it and didnt really miss him and all that jazz...but then the other night i had a dream about him and i made me realize that i do miss him more than i thought...i really wish something more happened there...it could have been great...but it didnt...oh well... =/ ...

it seems like i need someone new to crush on before i could ever really be over the crush on concert guy...one of these days one of my silly crushes is gonna turn into something more that just a silly crush...i really hope that day is sooner rather than later...i am so over being chronically single...it stinks...not fun at all...ya know what? im gonna stop hoping that a boyfriend is just gonna fall out of the sky...how about i start small...how about just a date...i just want to go on a date...would i be a nervous wreck? im sure i will be!...but its okay...this is something that should have happened 10 years ago...im a little behind...so what...i wasnt really ready then...but i am now...so if anyone out there has any advice or help they would like to give me i will take it!!! im serious about this...pretty please with a cherry on top!...

im playing fantasy football this year...its week 5 and my team is currently 2-2...unfortunately it looks like im gonna lose again...ugh...its not that i have a bad team...i have the second highest point total in the league...its just that the person im playing happens to have an awesome week...oh and it doesnt help that this week my star running back arian foster only rushed for 25yards...what is that about?!?...ugh...im gonna have to make some big moves for next week so i can get another win...i NEED another win!!!...

backstreet boys cruise is less than 2 months away!!!...i can not even begin to express how excited i am for this cruise!!!...on friday we got an email with the themes for the deck parties...international luv...masqurade...black & blue...AND they announced the door dec contest...little sis and i are so gonna win!...i have to keep my idea under wraps...but i can promise that its gonna be awesome!!!...now all i have to do is come up with an outfit for each theme and make all of my decorations...so what do you guys think...for international night should i represent good ol u.s. of a. OR represent dirty jersey???...its a tough call!!!...haha!!!...

this weekend i was in providence visiting little sis...little one and bff were there also...friday night they picked me up at the train station and then we were off...there was WAY more traffic than any of us had anticipated...so it took us over 5 hours to get there...it was brutal!!!...yesterday we participated in all sorts of fun fall festivities...we went to a corn maze...picked pumpkins...and went to a jack-o-lantern spectacular...the last thing was soo cool...they had tons of giant pumpkins cared into all sorts of things...it was really exciting...today we didnt do much...just went to lunch and watch some football...got upset while watching football (im looking at you foster!...haha!)...now im on the train going home...little one and bff are still up there...they both have off tomorrow but i do not...so i must go home...so sad right?!...

ive decided that i want to be on dance your a** off...that show was totally made for me and i could def win...but more on that another time...im going to make a full entry about why i want to be on it...

oprah is asking for backstreet fans to write to her in 2000 characters or less saying why you love them and how they have changed your life and things like that...i have no idea what to say!...of course i love bsb...they are my all time fav but i dont have a sob story or anything...i love because i do, they make me happy...its as simple as that...so i feel like there is no way that i could win without any story...so why should i even enter...but at the same time how do i know what shes looking for...if i enter at least i tried and there is the possibility of winning...but if i dont even put an entry in then there is no chance of winning...what the prize is, no one knows...but its oprah we are talking about here so its gotta be good!!!!....

ummm...i cant really thing of anything else to babble about this evening...so im gonna stop here...i guess ill have to find something else to occupy myself with for the remaining hour and a half of this train ride...

so as always...until next time happy blogging!!! =)

oh and ps...if you ever see an eligible bachelor please give him my number...thanks in advance!...haha!!! <3

my first 10 on tuesday

since im a follower im gonna follow again and start answering 10 on Tuesday...i stole the questions from cait...she got the questions from someone else...and im really not sure if that person made the up of got them from another person...im sure you can follow the questions back to find their origin if you wish...anyway...lets get on with it shall we!

1) Favorite way to travel (plane, train, automobile, etc.)

well i HATE the train and the subway...i love my new car but if i had to go far i would def start to get antsy...so i am going to answer my fav way to travel is by plane!!!...i love love love flying!!!...there is something about being up in the sky with the clouds and looking out the window and seeing miles and miles of land of ocean...when i was real little i use to look for the carebears in the clouds...but now i like to look for things that are a little more real...lol...like my house (which i have yet to spot)...another thing that makes planes so awesome is getting on a plane = going on vacation!!!...and who doesnt love vacation?!?

2) where's your favorite place to that you've been to?

DISNEY WORLD!!!!

3) wheres the place that you want to go but have never been?

i want to go on an ALASKAN CRUISE!!!

4) do you deal with traffic well?

it depends...if there is a ton of traffic and no one is moving then im pretty calm cause what am i gonna do about it...but if there is just one slow car in front of me blocking my way for no reason then i get road rage real fast!!!

5) ever had an emergency while traveling?

no...knock on wood!...

6) do you have a passport? what countries have you been to?

of course i have a passport!...ive been to bermuda, mexico, canada, england, st maarten, bahamas, spain, france, dominican republic, and i think thats it...

7) are you a light packer or do you pack everything?

oh i pack everything!!! this includes my own pillow and towels...haha!...

8) do you take the fastest route or the road less traveled?

most of the time i take the fastest route...but every once in a while i enjoy taking the road less traveled...

9) do any activities on the road? (like road games, reading, sleeping, etc.)

if im driving i like to sing super loud or chat with my passengers...if im a passenger it def depends on the length og the trip...i would typically check my twitter (@ashalia11)...or write in my handy dandy blog...or read a magazine...or play some type of game on my phone or ipod...or i may eeven pull out my Nintendo ds!...

10) use a paper or gps?

paper map all the way baby!!!...i feel like the gps tells you to turn too late...i prefer to get directions and look at a map before i go so i have some sort of idea of where im going instead of relying on the gps to tell me where to go...

crafty to do list

hey kiddies! whats going on?!? nothing much here...same ol stuff different day...ya know...and of course im on the look out for a new boy to talk about constantly but i just havent found him yet...haha!...anyway...

i have a few crafty projects brewing in my head that i want to start working on but im not really sure when i have the time to create them...

first up is a scrapbook...i really want to make a scrapbook with all the pictures from my 25th birthday bash: disney edition...i have all these pictures and theyre just sitting in my computer...i want to do something with them...and just putting them in an album is lame...i want the scrapbook to be just as exciting as the trip was...also ive never made myself a scrapbook...ive only put them together for other people...so i think its about time i put a little bit of hard work into something that i can keep and treasure forever...right? right!...

the other project i need to start working on is my door dec for the backstreet cruise in december...rumor has it that there will be a contest for best door...the winner gets FRONT ROW TICKETS!!!...i need those!...haha!...in high school i totally rocked hall dec so i should be a pro at door dec!...little sis and i are gonna win...i just know it!...i came up with a great theme...and already put together some sketches...im so excited for this...the only problem is if they assign a theme for the contest and it doesnt match the one i already have planned for my door...then i would have to scrap what i have planned and start from scratch...i really dont want to do that...i just hope that the contest is an open theme...fingers crossed...=)

so those are the 2 big projects i have up my sleeve right now...if i ever finish them i will try to provide pictures...

well i must be going now...until next time happy blogging!!!

concert guy's last day

unfortunately today was concert guys last day taking the good ol njtransit 713...so sad right?...im def gonna miss him...im also a little jealous that he doesnt have to deal with the stupid train ever again...its really been a nightmare lately...anyway i guess its story time now...haha...

so this morning when i got to the train he confessed his true feelings for me so we're gonna go on lots of dates and fall madly in love and live happily ever after...oh wait...that only happened in my imagination...haha!!!...

in real life nothing nearly as exciting happened...he just said standard things like "you guys will have to come visit me in hoboken" and "i'll be around dont worry"...but i know the chances are that ill never see him again...oh well...the school girl crush was fun while it lasted...now its time to move on...so readers if you know any single, straight, 25plus guys SET ME UP!...its not that hard...i know you can do it...haha!...

oh man...is this my stop already?...it cant be i barely wrote anything yet...well i was on twitter for a while...so that could be where the time went...speaking of twitter if youre not following me you should be...haha... @ashalia11

i guess we will continue chatting another time..well its not really chatting...more like me rambling on and on and you reading...but it works... =)

this is us tour



as you all know i have been to a lot of backstreet boys concerts...33 to be exact...haha...the latest one on my list was on thursday at Hammerstein ballroom in manhattan for the this is us tour...and it was AMAZING!!!!

i was gonna go with little sis but at the last minute she (along with little one) decided to get general admission tickets, sit there all day, and be in the front...the reasons for me not doing this also are 3 fold...1) im a crowdaphobe...too many people jammed into a small place gives me anxiety...haha...2) some people actually have to be responsible and go to work...and 3) (the most obvious) i already had a ticket...duh...so now i was left with the task of filling the extra ticket left behind by little sis...i asked around and ended up bringing cool girl from work...she has NEVER been to a bsb concert before...can you believe it?!?...so this makes cool girl the 3rd person this tour that i brought to their first bsb concert...yay! more fans!!!...she couldnt believe how many hits they had and how many songs she knew...she had a ton of fun and to that i said why do you think i go to so many...haha...

anyway, on to the event...some dj opened for them...he was entertaining for the first 5 minutes then i got old...he played for at least a half hour...its not like he was horrend or anything like that...its just that it wasnt really the place for that...if he was the dj at some club or a party he would have been awesome...i just wanted him to finish so the boys would come on!!!

when the backstreet boys finally came out the crowd went wild!!!...it was def the loudest crowd ive been a part of in a long time!...everyone was singing along to all the songs...it was great...

the boys sand most of their old singles and most of the songs on the new album...and they added in "if i knew then" which was not on the set list the first time around...so that was exciting!...i love that song!!!...but they still didnt sing "shattered"...shattered is def my fav song on the album and i would have LOVED to see it live!

they had dancers again...they added a lot to songs like "all of your life" and "bye bye love"...but they werent really necessary for songs like "all i have to give"...speaking of aihtg...im not gonna lie i was a little upset over no suits and hats...but whatever ill get over it...

sticking with the movie theme of the album they each had a movie they were green screened into...howie's was the fast and the furious...aj's was fight club...brian's was enchanted...and nick's was the matrix...they were all pretty entertaining bits to hold the crowd over while the boys changed...and they contained great lines like "first rule of backstreet boys fan club is you dont talk about backstreet boys fan club" and "has it really been 10 years since i was teen peoples hottest male?"...

lets see...what else???...i think thats it...oh the picture at the top was taken using my phone...i figured out how to zoom after the concert was over...oh well...now i know for next time!!!

here i am!


hello there readers...sorry that i've been mia for a few weeks...i thought now would be a good time to play catch up...

first i want to say that i got a new phone!...i ended up with the lg ally...there is a definite learning curve when moving from a regular cell phone to an android powed cell phone...i must admit that i miss my trusty voyager broken hinge and all...lol...but this one is growing on me and i am learning to love it!...since this is my first blog using tins phone and im not 100% comfortable with the keybord yet there may be more mistakes than normal...but its okay...you guys will forgive me, right?!?...haha...

just incase you were wondering were i dissapeared to dont panic cause im gonna tell you!...haha!...a few weeks ago f.u.n. decided that i needed to read interview with a vampire...she claims its the best vampire book out there...so i read it...and all my precious commuting time went to reading instead of blogging or playing bejewled or any of the other fun things i find to do on the train...haha...when i finally finished the book i thought "eh"...it was okay...nothing great...i have absolutely zero desire to run out and get the rest of the books in the series...there were some parts that i liked but some parts were slow...and there was way too many details on the killings...i could have done without those...well anyway now i can say that i read it and thats that...

so lets see what else is new and exciting in my life???...oh...it looks like concert guy will not be continuing on to the next season of me show...he will be moving to hoboken in september...so the odds of me seeing him too much more are slim...sad, i know...but its alright...its time to move on any way...

im sure there is a ton of other things i need to share but this is my stop...ill be back soon...no worries!!!

i need my own sitcom!

ive been thinking about it and i decided that i should totally have my own sitcom!...haha!...ive been told by many people (and by many i mean 2...haha) that my blog is very funny...so how cool would it be to have a sitcom based on my little blog here?...and since its a sitcom everything can be exaggerated to be even funnier!...

it would be just like the blog...so obviously it will be called confessions of a giggler...and it will have voice overs sharing my crazy thoughts during all the different boy troubles ive had...and it could have 2 different versions of the same scene...1 that really happened and one that i wishes happened...and i want to use everyones cool blog names in the show and not real names...but the mayor thinks i should do that...but i say that the cool blog names is part of what makes the blog awesome...haha!...no sitcom that im aware of has ever done such a thing...i think it would be great!...

so next i have to cast my sitcom...so i started asking my cast of characters who they would want to play them in my sitcom...little one said snookie (good choice)...haha!...and bubbles said angelina jolie (so i said i dont think she'll do it...haha)...and no one else really answered...but i understand cause for a while i had no idea who i would want to play me...but then i thought about it some more and said hey if im gonna be casting hot guys to play the parts of new guy and concert guy then i should just play myself!!!...ive never acted before but im pretty sure i can play myself...how hard can it be? right?!?...and then i can be part of one of those on screen couples (obvi im using the term couple VERY loosely) who fall in love for real off screen...that would be fabulous...=)

what do you think?...would a sitcom based on my blog be funny or just stupid?...would you watch it?...and if youre in my cast of characters who do you want to play you???...these are important questions...i need answers people!!!...haha!!!...

possible new phone

as i have mentioned before my trusty voyager is falling apart...literally!...haha...if im not careful the top part comes right off the hinges...i didnt run out to get a new phone right away because my contract wasnt up yet...well it is now...

im now faced with the dilemma of what phone to get...the problem im having is there is something i dont like about each and every phone currently on the market...and there isnt a single qwerty keyboard out there that is comparable to this one...they all stink!...AND most of the super cool phones that are coming out now are sans qwerty keyboard...they're 100% touch screen...if i dont have a good keyboard how am i gonna keep all of you up to date with whats going on in my life?!?...doesnt verizon know that i only blog from my phone???...haha...

since nothing out there right now is grabbing my attention i may just have to wait a little longer until something comes out that i like...ive been doing some research and found that the droid 2 is coming out later this summer...it comes complete with a full qwerty keyboard...yay!...but im not too crazy about the design of the first droid so how much can this one really change...i feel like all Motorola phones are very boxy...i dont like boxy!...haha...

i also discovered the samsung galaxy s fascinate probably coming out in the fall...this phone is beautiful (based on pictures...haha!)...it has awesome features and a nice design and i have been very happy with samsung phones in the past...the only problem is that there is no qwerty keyboard...=(...how sad...right?...but it does have the new "swipe" technology on it...so when you type you dont have to pickup your fingers you just slide them around...im not really sure if i would like that or not but i think it would def better than having a touch scream without it...now the question is do i wait for the fall to see this phone in person and try out the swipe thing or should i just settle and get one sooner...i dont know...

and then of course there's that pesky iphone that is rumored to be coming to verizon in janurary...do i want that?...no not at all...i have an itouch and i find the keyboard extremely difficult to use...it would be fine for texts but not to write an entire blog entry...

oh and there's the purple blackberry...and we all know how much i love purple!...it had to be a stupid blackberry...why not a purple droid or ally or incredible or anything!...haha!...

well im gonna think about it some more...i dont want to rush into anything...it is a two year commitment after all...i want to make sure i really like what i get...i dont want to hate my phone...i want to love my phone...<3

so what do you guys think?...any recommendations???

circle back

since we last chatted bff backed out of going to my friends wedding with me AFTER i told her i would be bringing a plus one...great here we go all over again...*big ol eye roll*...haha!

so i circled back and re asked everyone from the original list (except plus one...i had to move fast and i dont have his number)...BLLA still didnt know about work...and stupid concert guy (thats right i called him stupid...haha!) didnt reply to me yet again...ugh...so annoying!...i think after this crush over...its painfully obvious that he has no interest in me...before i could pretend that he didnt get it or something like that...but ignoring 2 is sending a pretty clear message...dont you think?...oh well...what am i gonna do about it?...nothing...

anyway back to the wedding...i worked things out today and confirmed my brand new plus one...i know you are all sitting on the edge of your seats waiting to find out who it is...haha!...well here goes...its my girl k dubbs!!!...yay!!!...i am going to have a way better time with her than i would if i brought any of those other bozos...

i am so happy that i can put all this drama behind me...it was seriously stressing me out...there was no need for that...im better now... =)

grr...no response

last week i told you all about how i invited concert guy to my friend's wedding...well i hate to be the bearer of bad news but over a week later and still no response...ugh!...i am fully aware that this means that he has absolutely zero interest in me what so ever...but to make myself feel better im going to pretend that he just didnt see it...cause if he did see it he would have said "of course! i would love to go with you!"...and then we would fall madly in love and live happily ever after!!!...haha!!!...oh the imagination i have...why cant it be that easy???...anyway back to reality...i had to accept that fact that he's not gonna come with me...so i moved on...

next on my list was plus one...i thought he would go with me fo sho...memorial day weekend he was going on and on about the fact that hes never been to a wedding and he wants to go to one and all kinds of nonsense...i thought i would be making his dreams come true earlier than expected...so i sent him a facebook message...again no response!...wtf!!!...is it so hard to write a simple no?...or im busy that day? or something! anything!...i just had to move on again...

next i asked the brian littrell look alike (BLLA for short) i met this past weekend...he's my cousin's big brother in their frat...he's now living at my cousins' house while he saves money to get an apt...this time i actually got an answer...it was a temporary answer...but an answer none the less!...he said he would def go if he doesnt have work...the problem was that he wasnt going to find out about work until it was too late...so another one down...oh boy any one else getting exhausted?!...haha...

finally i said that it "bff you are coming with me"...the only reason i didnt really want to have to ask him was it might be a little weird...since ya know...he is little sister's bofo after all...but whatever who cares? hes my bff so nbd!...right?!?...haha!

so there you have it folks...after all the drama i end up with bff as my plus one for this wedding...haha...wish me luck!

plus one

no this is not a blog about the mayors bff who i named plus one on here...so when i say plus one im talking about the whole notion of a plus one...not the person plus one who i have lined up as my plus one for the princesses wedding...

last year one of my good friends from high school got engaged...of course i was super excited for her...but at the same time i immediately thought "oh god who am i gonna bring to this wedding"...in my dreams i obviously wanted new guy to go with me...haha...and then he moved (and i cant talk to him anyway) so that idea was out...then i thought well maybe concert guy (at that point i didnt even officially meet him yet)...so i was thinking thats probably a no go...haha...

so i began to think that it was just gonna be another wedding for me to attend solo...ugh...i really dont mind going by myself...i just dont want to be the only loser there alone...ya know...but then it all changed when i actually became friends with concert guy...i figured i could def invite him!...i was all set...no more stressing over who to ask...

then the invite came...and it was addressed to ashley...no guest...ugh all that worrying over nothing...i wasnt invited with a guest...so again i had to come to terms with going by myself...but at least this time i figured i wouldn't be the only one alone...

now the wedding is only a few weeks away and my friend called me today to tell me a lot family they thought were coming arent...so she said if i want to bring someone with me i can...oh boy here we go again...haha...i went right back to my plan of asking concert guy to go with me...so this afternoon i sent him a text (im much better with writing than speaking,..haha)...i said "hey...do you wanna be my plus one for my friend's wedding?"...omg i was so nervous sending that simple little text...and the worst part of it is he hasnt responded yet...ahhh...lol...so i guess i should take this as a bad sign...but im not...im going to pretend that its a good sign...haha...

so what do you think it means?...oh no, did i just make things awkward between us?...i hope not!...thats all i really have to say without turning crazy so im gonna go but i will def keep you posted on any response that may or may not come it...

nervous nelly

guess whos back!....new guy!!!....eeeekkkkk!!!!

for those of you who dont remember new guy lets quickly recap...hes the super hottie lifeguard from last summer i was totally curshin on...oh yeah and i totally made a complete fool out of myself every time he was around...i lost all ability to function as a human being...simple things like saying "hi, i'm ashley" just seemed impossible...but no big deal...haha!...after last summer new guy moved to hawaii and slowly but surely i forgot all about him (thanks in part to concert guy! <3)...does any of this ring a bell???...

well the switch was flipped back on last weekend when f.u.n. informed me that new guy is gonna be at the compound on friday night!...aaahhhhh!!!...i dont know if i should be super excited (hey maybe i will be able to have an actual conversation this time) or if i should be super embarrassed and run for the hills...haha...im just afraid that the mistakes i made last summer will happen again...while im aware that there is def no future relationship there i still dont want him to think im a rataard...cause im not! (okay in front of him i am...haha)...

its been a whole year since i last saw new guy and i am def the same person but at the same time i think i have changed ever so slightly...and hopefully that slight change will be enough for me to be able to have a regular conversation with new guy...i think that the fact that im not really crushin on him anymore will help a lot...well i am but im not...ya know?...lets put it this way...im totally team concert guy now but if an opportunity came up with new guy i def wouldnt turn it down...haha...speaking of concert guy, i've been able to talk to him like a normal person all year...it should be the same with new guy...right?...

i have to try not to think about it too much...there isnt even a guarantee that he will be there friday night...so why am i worried?...this is so dumb...haha!...

yeah ill be fine...i hope!

memory like a vault

i am def one of those people who remembers everything...well maybe not everything but i remember A LOT!...lol...i can remember every one's birthday...i remember dances i did when i was in 8th grade...i remember all kinds of things...so sometimes i say i have a memory like a vault...it goes in and never comes out...there arent to many people who remember as many things as i do...just found out that concert guy is one of those people...

thats right its the return of concert guy...i know i havent mentioned him in a while...but there hasnt been much to say about him lately cause we havent hung out outside of the train since the whole situation with crazy wet hair girl...

as you know last weekend was backstreet weekend...saw them in ac on saturday night...in monmouth on sunday night...and at mohegan sun on tuesday night...since mohegan is a little more than 3 hours from me i took off work on tuesday...and then we got home super late that night so i called in sick on wednesday...when i finally woke up at noon i saw that i missed a text from concert guy...it said "arti wants to know where you are, shes worried you didnt make it back from ct"...

lets examine this shall we...first of all im going to pretend that arti is code for concert guy...so it was really him who wanted to know where i was...not arti...haha...and second of all i dont remember telling that i was going to ct on tuesday...when i saw him last monday i told him about the other 2 concerts that i already went to but i didnt say anything about tuesdays show...cause i remember when i got on the train i thought to myself "oh i should have told him that i wont be here tomorrow"...but i do remember telling him a long time ago about the 3 shows...maybe i said something about them all being right by each other...did he remember from back then?...how is that possible?...or did i say something monday and completely forget about it?...maybe in all the excitment i said im going again tomorrow...but i dont think so...but i must have cause how did he know?!?...oh boy and im the one who claims to have a good memory...haha!...

well either way i know i didnt go on and on about it to him like i do with everyone else...so im going to take the fact that he knew where i was (even though i dont remember telling him) as a sign that he actually pays attention when i talk to him...and it could be just one more sign telling me that im not crazy and he WAS in fact flirting with me all those times ive mentioned before...haha...doubt it!...haha...but ill just pretend that it means way more than it really does just so i can feel good about myself!...haha!...

thats it for now kiddies...do you think im still crazy???...probably right? (*heads nodding yes*)...oh well...it is what it is... = )

who do i think i am?

last week i purchased a brand new car!!! yay!!! its a 2010 cadillac srx crossover...its white with tan and brown interior...and shes beautiful!!! i still cant believe i bought a cadi...it hasnt sunk in yet that its acually mine...if you asked my last year what my next car would be cadillac wouldnt even have crossed my mind...even 2 months ago i wouldnt have said that...

it all started when i went to disney for my birthday...as you may or may not know test track at epcot is sponsored by gm...so when you get off the ride they have a giant display room where they have all the latest and future models of gm cars...i saw the srx and fell in love (why cant it be that easy with guys???...haha)...i sat in the drivers seat and that was it...i knew at that moment that it was the car i needed to have...once i made up my mind that was it...

two weekends ago i began my search...we headed over to crown cadillac on rt 22 "just to look"...we met andy there (who is the best salesman ever!)...he showed us the ins and outs of the car and i took one out for a test drive and my love for the car grew...at that point i knew looking elsewhere for a new car would just be silly...i signed the papers that day!!!...of course they didnt have the model i wanted so i didnt actually get the car until thurday but it was totally worth the wait...

last weekend i drove it all over the place...i love the sunroof...i love the xm radio...i love the ipod hookup...i love the bluetooth...i love the heated seats (okay so i havent used these yet but i know ill love then in the winter)...i love the miles to empty...i love the automatic start...i love the push button start/stop...i love the new car smell...i love the color...i love that i figured out where the digital clock is...i love how easy it is to adjust my seat...i love the leather dashboard...i love all the hidden compartments...i love that i can set the height for the trunk...i love the cool limo lighting at night...i love the bright headlights...i love it all!!!

i would highly recommend the srx to everyone it is amazing!...and for anyone whos in the market for a new cadi go to crown cadillac and ask for andy!...he is freakin awesome!!!...i think part of the reason i love the car so much is because he was so excited showing me all the features...he seemed to genuinly care about me and my car...so thanks for everything andy!!!

sittin in my spot

greetings from the jersey shore!!! its memorial day weekend and the summer has officially begun!...yay!!!...i think my slogan for this summer is gonna be "summer of ten, bring on the men!"...haha!

well anyway im reporting to you live from my favorite spot down here...if you know me and you know the compound then you totally know where my spot is...in the corner of the deck looking out at the bay...love it!...but only at night...during the day its just an ordinary spot but at night its magical!...on clear nights i like to look at the stars...i see a lot of shooting stars and always make a wish...i would tell you what my wishes are but then they wont come true so mum is the word!...haha!...i also like to look out into the bay...and listen to the water...its very peaceful out here!...

i do some of my best thinking out here in my spot...i think about all kinds of things out here...im not gonna lie most of it is about boys...haha...i imagine all kinds of things...this is the best spot to escape reality for a little bit and live in a fantasy world...(and ps i always have a bofo in my fantasy world...haha!)...

well i must go now because other people are invading my spot...so i guess i will be social and talk to them!...until next time happy blogging!

email group!

when i first started working almost 3 years ago (wow has it been that long already?!?) i was in email group with the fam...not everyone in the fam...just a select few...haha!...it was a good way to keep in touch with everyone...and hear all the side commentary we all had on just about everything...email group was pretty awesome...until one day i got in trouble at work for sending too many personal emails...apparently when you send 1 email to 10 people it counts as 10 emails...ugh...that was not a good day for me...sadly i had to quit email group right away...

while email group was alive and kickin we were pretty serious about it...big brother drafted up an official list of email group rules...it was almost like fight club...they were rules to live by if you were in email group!...yeah, we were that awesome...haha!

i bring all this up today because i was looking through old files on my computer and i found the rules list!...it made me laugh and remember the good ol' days of email group...i know you are all dying to read them so without further ado here are the official rules of email group!!!

1) you dont talk about email group
2) you dont talk about email group
3) when someone says stop, let it go, or enough...you STOP
4) if you plan on adding a new person to email group you must have written consent of the other members. (see below approved list)
5) you cannot and Will not speak to anyone not on the email group about any subject discussed on the email group. MAJOR INFRACTION YOU WILL JUST BE REMOVED AND NEVER SPOKEN TO AGAIN
6) if someone asks to be removed because they are busy everyone must comply. (Rule does not apply to bubbles at this moment...we will revise WHEN SHE GETS A JOB!)
7) if it is your 1st week on email group you must be the first email every work day for that first week

approved list:
bubbles, ashley, big sis, big brother, the mayor, little one, and the princess

wow...how special were we?!?...haha!!!

*please note that these rules were written before tv girl joined the group...

i know what your all thinking right now...i'm in violation of rules 1 and 2...*GASP*...but the way i look at it is we havent had email group in well over a year (maybe 2) so my violations are irrelevant...right?!?...at least i hope so...=)

713 drama

earlier today i was writing in my trusty blog all about how truly crazy wet hair girl is...then i realized that i was being really mean...and i dont want my blog to be mean...i want it to be fun and happy and silly and boy crazy...haha!...so i decided to erase the post...also i really cant remember if i ever gave her the link to this...if she ever read the things i was writing...friendship def over!...well to be honest im on the verge of phasing her out...i dont think i can handle the crazy anymore...it was entertaining for a while but now im over it...

i feel really bad about this because i remember how crappy i felt when my high school friends phased me out...it was horrend!...but there are some major differences...1) im not crazy! and 2) i was bff with these people for years...wet hair girl has been my train friend for a few months...so its totally different right???...or am i just an awful person???

shes been pretty nutty all along but the thing that set her over the edge was when she left concert guy and his friends at a bar in belmar with no ride home and all of their stuff was in her car...and then she refused to give the stuff back...so bizzar right?!?...this was a situation that had absolutely nothing to do with me (because i wasnt there) but since she refused to talk to concert guy or his friends she put me in the middle...this fight blew up so big that now its 2 weeks later and they still dont talk to each other and concert guy doesnt stand in our spot in the morning anymore...so some days i stand with him and some days i stand with her...yesterday im pretty sure she was mad at me for standing with concert guy...its so stupid...hes still my friend and neither of us did anything wrong...did i mention that im 100% on his side in this stupid fight...and no my judgment is not skewed because i think hes dreamy...haha!...im on his side because wet hair girl is capital C crazy!!!!...i better stop with that story there before i get mean again...oops...lol...

oh which brings me to another talking point...every time i chat with concert guy it becomes increasingly difficult not to mention my blog...its a force of habit for me to tell everyone i talk to to read my blog...when we talk about wet hair girl i have the urge to say something like "oh that is so going in my blog"...or "you need to read what i said about her in my blog!"...or (what i say to most people) "dont you read my blog?"...haha!...but then i quickly realize what a HUGE mistake that would be and keep my mouth shut...haha!...im sure he would appreciate what i have to say about wet hair girl and arti but i dont think i could handle it if he read everything i wrote about him!...i think that would be disastrous for me...talk about embarrassing...oh god...after reading he might put me in the crazy category with wet hair girl...and who wants that???...not me thats fo sho...im worried its gonna slip out one day...and then what?...what if he wants the address?...what am i going to say?..."sorry i cant give you that information because pretty much every entry is about you and i just cant let you read it"...i think that would make him want to read it more....dont you?!?...

i guess i will just have to be extra careful...i cant mention my blog or twitter around any of the train friends or their friends...(well i guess arti would be okay to read it...but im her least favorite so she wouldnt care...actually now that she thinks wet hair girl is a floozy i may have moved up a spot...yessss!!!...haha!)...but if it does slip out i will just have to except the consequences...see what happens when you talk about people...nothing good...haha!

well until next time...happy blogging! =)

big brother is watching

last weekend (sat may 1) i decided to throw myself a birthday party...i really thought that the mayor and little one would be the only people in attendance...boy was i wrong...turns out people actually like me and wanted to come to my party...imagine that...haha!...i didnt know i had it in me to trow a wild party...i had tons of fun and im pretty sure everyone else did too!

unfortunatly bragging about how awesome my party was is not the point of this entry...i only mention it because its where i found out about an additional reader of my delightful little blog (bringing my grand total to 3...haha!!!)...i gained this knowledge because something came up about my train friends and then the following exchange happened:

me~> my train friends were here, did you see them?
big brother~> wait...that was concert guy?!?
me~> omg you read my blog!!!...haha...yeah it was concert guy!!!

just in case you are wondering who big brother is he's my super awesome brother in law...husband to big sis...and father to my little squish-a-lish!!! ive know him since i was about 9 or 10 and we have had some great memories along the way...and many times we are the only 2 who "get it" in the fam...its nice to know there is someone out there who knows when im being sarcastic...haha!...well anyways i love you big brother! <3...

now that i know big brother is watching i feel like theres extra pressure to write something good...and now i kinda feel weird talking about my potentially gay pretend train boyfriend...haha!...eh who am i kidding? im going to still talk about concert guy...so if you are entertained by that story line no worries!...ill keep you informed on any developments there...oh which reminds me i do have a new story about the train friends...look for that in the next few days!...all i have to say about it right now is wet hair girl is CRAZY (i really hope i never gave her the link to this)...haha!!!

in closing if there is anyone else out there who is reading this please let me know and you can get your very own cool blog name and post dedicated to you!

horoscopes

as you may or may not know i was born under the sign of taurus!...and boy am i a taurus!!!...if you look up those websites that give you traits of all the different signs i fit the taurus profile to a tee...stuborn...resists change...loyal...loves nice things...its all me...

i also like to read all about the love compatibility taureans have with other signs...i have discovered that i need to find a nice capricorn or virgo because those are the best matches for taurus...and i need to stay away from leo...those are bad love matches for the taurus (awesome friends! but bad love match)...oh btw...concert guy is totally a virgo!...can i pick them or what...haha!!!...

anyway...i know that horoscopes are silly but i cant help but look at mine on a pretty regular basis...sometimes i read it in the new york post...but most of the time i go to yahoo...i like to know what the stars have planned for me...haha!...today i read my weekly love horoscope and it said the following about the up coming weekend:

"this weekend, you have charm aplenty-- and the ability to asses what it is a certain someone's after, even if they're not saying"

interesting...isnt it?!?...lets look way too much into this shall we...haha!...im totally going to be charming this weekend because um hello its my 25th birthday party local edition!!!...so moving onto the second part is this saying that im finally going to be able to tell what is going on with concert guy?!?...i hope so!...im so over all these guessing games...since i obviously cant stop over analyzing im gonna neeed real answers a sap!...=)

wow...ive been on a blogging role lately...i wonder how long it will last?!?

okay so i lied...nbd...

last post (actually 2 posts ago) i said that i would stop over analyzing everything...yeah that plan isnt working for me...

friday night i went out with the train friends again!...we went to the breakfast club...so much fun!...but i couldnt help but wish my lifers were there with me...they're really the only ones who understand that i wear my sunglasses at night and i wanna dance with somebody!...my train friends dont understand why i love those songs so much and everything that goes with them!!!...omg i miss my lifers! <3...

anyway...i really tried to just be like well this this and this happened friday night and it is what it is...i even received a text from the mayor asking if there was any more questionable flirting going on and i said no because i didnt want to read into anything..ya know...i was doing so well until that text and then my wheels started turning...

after thinking about the events of friday night there is one thing that i cant let go...randomly through out the night concert guy would come over to me and kiss me on the forehead (and one time on the cheek which totally gave my butterflies...haha...)...what is that all about?!?... is it just like "hey friend whats up" like i would kiss my cousin on the cheek?...or is it "heeeyyy, i secretly want to kiss you for real"???...i just dont know!...and how do i find out what his true intentions are???...i mean i cant just say "hey concert guy, if you want to make out with me all you have to do is say so!"...cause what if its the first option?...we would totally be at awkward level 5 the upside down cow!...its hard to recover from that....haha!!!...

see this is why i need to stop over analyzing...i am a nut case...def off my rocker!...haha!...what do you think it means???...i need to know!!!...yeah im crazy...haha!!!...i guess i will just have to wait it out and see what happens next time we hang out...which hopefully will be at my birthday party saturday night!...he says hes coming but ya never know...if he does come the mayor said he will do some recon for me...and then he should be able to confirm or deny my level of craziness...

ummm...i wonder what would happen if someone let slip about my josie grosie situation....maybe concert guy would step up and put me out of my misery!...oh the imagination i have!...haha!!!...see, crazy!...oh boy...i need help...haha!
