I’m on a shopping ban (as in clothes,bags,shoes,& jewelry) until I lose at least 20 pounds. My closet is exploding(literally I can’t fit one more item in there) and I’m not happy with my body, so hopefully that’s a good motivator. I already lost 2 pounds this week! And ugh A Day to Remember’s “Homesick” cd leaked and I was so tempted and downloaded it. It’s freakin amazing and I will def. be buying it when it comes out. Oh and I watched Boondock Saints last night for the first time, and I have no idea how I’ve never seen this movie. It was sooo good, and apparently they’re making a sequel. Yea that’s about it right now, not looking forward to the snow tomorrow.
So I went to H&M and it was alright. I tried on like 10 things, and ended up with one, a plaid shirt. They had a nice gray faux-leather bomber jacket I liked, but it was $50 and I didn’t feel like spending the money on it. Maybe I can convince my mom to buy me it, probably not. Oo and a bought a bracelet there. and a shirt at Charlotte Russe. And I really didn’t need either because my closet is exploding. And I shouldn’t even be spending money at these stores because their clorhes are made like crap, but oh well. I’m going part-time job hunting next week, considering no one is hiring anywhere, I might need a lot of luck.
Now yesterday I was hitting some weights and listening to my “Wednesday Work Out Pump-Up Jamz Mixtape” which is essentially the Spice Girls Greatest Hit. And when I say essentially I mean it in the same way as “Mars is essentially a planet” and “Elton John is essentially gay”. So while listening to my fab four, I started to notice that they might not have any idea what they are actually saying. Most of the songs sound like they just strung together words in the hopes they make sense. As Exhibit A your honor, I’de like to present you some lyrics from various popular songs:
Domination, Baby nation, Recreation.- “Move Over”: In no way do these words make any sense together unless the Spice Girls are attempting to take over the world than enroll babies as the major heads of governments and than do some rock climbing.
Love is blind, as far as the eye can see, Deep and meaningless words to me- “Too Much”: I actually think the Spice Girls are being literal here. I think they have no fucking clue what any of these words mean. Its like the whole “Paul is dead thing”. oh and if you don’t believe me play this one backwards, the whole time it says: “Ginger Spice is illiterate”
Imagine us together. Me driving you insane- “Holler”: Oh wow, that sounds just amazing. I can’t wait. Well you can’t say David Beckham didn’t have fair warning I guess. I think the girls wanted to say “crazy” not “insane” but their 5th grade education got in the way.
Goodbye my friend, It’s not the end, So glad we made it. Goodbye: “Goodbye”: What? Make up your mind!! You have no idea what goodbye means do you? At this point I’m pretty sure the Spice Girls learned English by mimicking flight attendants.
If you wanna be my lover you gotta get with my friends- Wannabe: Listen I have taken this advice one too many times. This is a classic case of “If it sounds too good to be true…” I swear the spice girls just write down big pile of cliched words like “lover, friends, life, spice, forever..” and than picks um out of a hat until a poorly constructed sentence emerges.
"I wanted to be a movie star. But movie stars are not what they used to be. When I was a kid, I thought movie stars were women and men who were in these great films that we still look at now. But I don’t think there are too many films coming out these days that we’re going to look at in the future and say, "This is one of the great ones." Like, what is the great film that I will tell my children about? I’m still going to tell them about the old films, the Hitchcock films. And people my age don’t even know who those people are. I can’t even have a conversation with most people of my generation about that, because they’d be like, "Okay, she’s a freak. Something’s wrong with her." And the worst part is, in terms of what people see of me, I have become this girl who just loves to be photographed, doesn’t know how to focus, doesn’t know how to work on set, just loves the attention, knows how to go out at night, knows how to party. And you know what? I was 20 years old. I never went to college. And I lived maybe six months out of my life like that, doing something wrong, and then I stopped. God forbid I should have ever learned my lesson. But at this point it’s so hard for people to even believe that there was a lesson to be learned at all, because they just think I’m wrong. All these people think I’m never going to be right, because it’s more interesting to fabricate this other girl. Who wants to read a tabloid story about a girl who is doing well?"

so I’m watching True Life: I’m Going to Fashion Week, for like the gazzillionth time, and between this and the hills I’ve decided I would freakin love to intern for Kelly Cutrone. Who cares what people think of her, she knows what the hell she’s doing.
Mark: Hey, Lucas. I’ve decided I’m going to start a band. Lucas: The first thing you need is a name. Then you’ll know what kind of band you’ve got. Mark: Right, right. I was thinking about, um, Marc. How does that sound? Lucas: Is that with a C or with a K? Mark: Well my name is with a K, so I was thinking my band’s name could be with a C. That way it’s kind of that psychedelic, you know, trip thing. Lucas: Always play with their minds.
