FTW or WTF? #2: Oscar 2011 Cohosts

It was announced today that the co-hosts for next February's annual Academy Awards are none other than the veteran and experienced duo of.....Anne Hathaway and James Franco? Umm, did I read that right? Let me double check....yup, that seems to be right.

My initial reaction to the announcement was WTF, but the more time I give the idea, the more it is turning into FTW. First off, I am not the biggest Anne Hathaway fan. But she has hosted SNL....twice! And did a fantastic job both times. Also, she has performed several times on stage, including Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, to which she got rave reviews.  So she has proven herself as one who can hold her own in the live spotlight.

As for James Franco.....eye candy. Need I say more? Mmmmmm :)

So between the two, I do believe they will be able to pull it off. I am giving this announcement a FTW!

FTW or WTF? #1: Mean Girls 2

Who ever came up with this idea should be locked away FOREVER!  My only consolation is that it's going to be a straight-to-DVD release, which means it will never appear on the big screen.  But still, they are going to ruin one of my all-time favorite movies. Ugh! *shakes fist in anger at the Gods that allowed such blasphemy to occur*

For this first edition of "FTW or WTF?" I give Mean Girls 2 a huge, resounding WTF?!

Christmas Music

I have a confession to make.  I secretly love Christmas music.  Doesn't matter if it's religious-based or just plain pop fun.  I try every year to at least make it past my birthday (Nov. 13) to break out the holiday tunes.  This year I did pretty well.  I made it till about the 11th, but that was because a friend of mine told me he was desperate for some Christmas music.  So I told him that I had an extensive collection of Xmas music, and that I would be glad to help him expand his own library.  So, what have I been (secretly) listening to the last two weeks?  Yup, you guessed it.

Phew!  Feels good to get that off my chest.

PS If you are wondering what my favorite Christmas song is, please allow me to show you:

I have never connected more with the character of Lucy from the musical Jekyll & Hyde than I do right now.  An outcast, living in a world that doesn't seem to accept her.

A New Life

Someone Like You

I know, I only have six more months til I graduate and can get the hell out of Utah, but that six months seems like an eternity right now.  I don't belong here and I feel almost like life is passing me by while I finish my sentence in this hell-hole.  There are opportunities out there that probably won't be available to me in six months.  I really want to get out of here, but I also realize that I need to stick it through and just finish school.  I will be the first in my immediate family to graduate from a post-secondary school, and it means a lot for me to do be able to do that.

Ugh.  I don't mean this to be one of those I-want-you-to-feel-bad-for-me posts, cause, in all honesty, I am not mad, depressed, or angry over my situation.  I just kinda wish I had taken a different path in life that would have offered me more opportunities.  Oh well, I guess that is just a part of life and I must learn from my mistakes.
