10/24/08 and 10/25/08

IT WAS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO AMAZING!!!!!!! And it had more screaming in a single movie theatre then any other movie I've been in. It was more like watching a Broadway show with all the fans screaming between each musical number then a movie where people giggle at appropriate moments but nothing more extreme. But then again, I haven't seen Twilight yet.....

By the way, I missed the Twilight soundtrack listening party at Hot Topic today. I was at HSM3 with Julia. (tee hee) I feel like an unsupportive fan. But I did support Stephenie Meyer throught her greatest time of need (the Midnight Sun scandal), though she may not know it. And Hot Topic is SCARY. Really, I own three items from there (Twilight shirt, sweater [I couldn't find a picture of this, but it says Twilight on the front and "I don't want to be a monster," on the back] and poster) and I only have them because other people bought them for me.

It is now 10/25/08....................

Also, when Julia and I where waiting to get picked up from the movies, we walked into Barnes and Noble, and I saw: TWILIGHT: THE COMPLETE ILLUSTRATED MOVIE COMPANION!!!!! I mean,I knew Amazon had started shipping it early even though it wasn't supposed to come out until November, but I was waiting for Barnes and Nobles to release it in order to mantain my faithfulness to them too. As many of you know, Barnes and Noble is my favorite place and my home away from home and I never buy books from another seller. Except in desperate times. Like when I couldn't find Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows ANYWHERE while I was in Palm Desert last winter and my aunt wouldn't let me read hers and I finally found it at Target. YAY!

Anyhoo, what was I talking about? Oh yeah, HSM3!!!!!!!!!! It was SSSSSSSSSSSSSOOOOOOOOOOOO corny!!!!!!!!!!!! (By the way, I have named Edward Cullen the Cheese Master and Troy Bolton the Corn Master. No neither of them are fictional..... In my mind.....) I know I said this before, but that room was so loud! And I have a soar throat, but I still managed to scream.... (Zac Efron must be magical......) Here are some examples of the various noises that were made through out the theatre (spoiler alert!!!!):

Screaming and cheering: In the beginning, in the end, and after musical numbers
Wolf whistles: When Gabriella and Troy kissed
Awww.....: See above (and any other mushy moments)
Insane laughter: When ever Zac Efron sang (he looks like he's crying!!!!!)
W00ts: From me everytime something involving Ryan and Kelsi happened. Or Sharpay. I like those characters. :)
Gasping: Serisouly, an audible intake of breath was heard through out the theatre when Zac Efron took his shirt off.

Well, this isn't really I sound, but I got really emotional in the end. In the end of their final spring musical, which was the story of their senior year in musical form (hard to explain, see the movie) they sang "We're All In This Together" one last time during the graduation scene of the show, where they also announced where our favorite Wildcats where going to college. Then it flashed to their actual graduation where the sang a song called "High School Musical." The six original leads (Troy, Gabriella, Sharpay, Ryan, Chad, and Taylor) then walked infront of everyone where a huge curtain and the High School Musical sign dropped behind them. The camera zoomed into each individual face (most of which were in tears) before they all jumped into the air and it froze, just like the original movie poster. When the came down, they all took their bows, before a final curtain dropped in front of them.

And when this happened, I got really emotional. I'm sorry, but am I the only one that finds the end of this era sad??????? I've read cover to cover the People High School Musical magazine I told you guys about, and this is very hard for them. Most of them didn't go to high school, and this was their high school experience. They've all become best friends and will probably never do anything like this again. Isn't that sad? Why am I the only person who finds this sad? I always find things like this sad, like the end of a TV series. Imagaine how the cast and crew feel! It must be heartbreaking.

I have an idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! COMMENT!!!!!!!!! Tell me your feelings about the end of this era, and please attempt at some positivity. Wait no! Not positivity that this is over, but positivity about the era, and how it changed the world forever. And don't go saying High School Musical is against your morals and religioin..... (Sars)........

On to a slightly random topic: Have any of you come back from a trip and suddenly the whole world is different? For example, I came back from where I was for the past six days and suddenly....

Madonna and Guy Ritchie broke up?????????????? Jennifer Anniston and John Mayer got back together?????????????????? IS THE WORLD SPINNING BACKWARDS?????????????????????????????

I'm really scared. I think the world was thrown out of wack without The Many Thoughts of Stephanie to help it get through it's troubles!

Ha, ha, you guys, I'm not that self centered! Or am I.....

I'm kind of sort of glad that I didn't have the pressures of the outside worlds on my shoulders for the past week. I had more then enough to deal with without it. A lot of hiking, moving locations, geting altitude sick, etc.

Poll news: On my "How weird do you think I am poll?" 71% of you said I'm pretty weird but you've met weirder, 14% said I'm the weirdest person you've met in a good way, 14% said I'm not weird at all, and 0% said I'm the weirdest person they've met in a bad way. I am kind of surprised by these results.

I will be putting up a new poll called, "Am I a good listener?" Recently I have been surprised to learn that at least four of my friends think I am. But then again four out of over 25 people I consider close enough friends to know me well enough to put input on the topic isn't that great.......

Happy birthday to Katy Perry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm sorry I always call you Catty instead of Katie, but that's what I thought your name was! Sorry, and have a great day!!!!

By my friends! COMMENT OR DIE!!!!!! Voting in my poll would be nice too.

Hola me compadres who el reado my blogo. (Yes, that was Spanish....) Anyways, I don't appreciate that the only comment I got on my last entry was, "Oh." Really people, learn how to comment. Constructive criticism is appreciated! (If it is actually constructive.)

This blog is basically a place holder, I am going to be gone from Sunday morning to Friday night, and if I get on the computer (which there is a very very very SLIM chance of) I will try and update, otherwise I will update when I come back.

I don't have much to say. I wrote 3 essays in social studies today. That was joyous.....

It's really hot today. It's October. It's supposed to be chilly!!!!!!!!!! ARGH!!!!!!!!!!

I hate weather. It's terrible. I can't stand heat, and I can't stand the cold. I'm always either freezing or boiling. The one temperture I really do like is where you can basically be comfortable wearing anything. A tank top and shorts? No problem. Long pants and a sweater? That's fine too. And don't tell me that doesn't exist. It does. At least in SoCal it does. That's why I couldn't live anywhere but here. Because of life style and weather, and everything else. Even though I always tell people that California isn't what they think it is, that doesn't mean it isn't awesome.

I'm eating an everything bagel right now. Everything includes poppyseeds. I better not take a drug test anytime soon..... (incase you didn't know, poppyseeds show up on drug tests for some reason...)

Maybe that's why the Wicked Witch of the West put the spell on the poppys! You know, to make Dorothy and her amigos fall asleep. It's probably not that hard, considering poppyseeds are sort of drugs and all......

Back on topic to my topic of weather. I mean, if I was ever for what ever reason not living here, I'd live in New York City. Brooklyn at the least. Because that's the only other place that really suits me. I'm human, we're good adpaters, but I'd want to go somewhere I really feel at home. My friend Nat said she could see me as a New Yorker. I can see myself as a New Yorker too. Maybe living there would improve my sense of direction.

But New York is scary also. I'm not as afraid of it as my mom is, she hates taxis and subways way too much to ever live there. But I bet until I got used to being there I'd constantly look over my shoulder because I'm afraid of muggers and pick-pocketers.

The really attractive thought about living in New York though, is living in New York with my friends, all grown up. Like in Friends! We'd be roommates or live across the hall from eachother and we'd go to Central Perk... It would be really fun!

Friends is such a legendary show. Really, it's amazing. Who doesn't know the theme song? I've danced in a fountain before, (at UCLA with Sars, long story) but we probably did not look that cool.

And I love how all the episodes are just called "The One Where/When..." because that's how we refer to them. For example, "The One When the Stripper Cries." I usually refer to it though, as "The One When Joey Plays Pyramid." Really, who can resist yelling, "Paper! Snow! A GHOST!" after seeing this.... Yelling "JOEY DOESN'T SHARE FOOD!" is also very fulfilling.

I'm not going to go through every little snippet of Friends I love with you guys (it would take forever). All the episodes are amazing, and I don't know what else to say. 'Cause I have to leave and I'm going to be lazy.

Happy birthday to IMDB! That's an amazing website, use it! NOW!

I'm going to leave now. I'll miss you guys when I'm gone and I hope you miss me too. Remember to vote in the poll! AND COMMENT!

Ok you guys, this is kind of sad, I've been blogging since January, and I just figured out how to do some cool stuff to my blog. Anyways, I added a little bar thing over there to the left that says Followers. I'm not exactly sure how, but you guys can follow my blog. I'm pretty sure that means you'll get notified when I update, but I'm not 100% sure. I'd appreciate it if you signed up to follow anyways. It wil make me feel more loved.

I also figured out how to add a poll to my blog, which I'm thinking of doing. Later.

And, dun dun dun, I got my camera!!!!!!!!! I could put some random picture of stuff. Not me. Other stuff. Maybe my dogs. Or material items. Oh yes, this sounds fun.

Now let's get on topic, which in Stephanie speak means let's move off topic to a more fun topic.

It's wildfire season her in SoCal and it sure smelled bad yesterday. It smells better today. And I didn't get evacuated this year, YAY!

Today, my dear friend K.C. said I'm the weirdest girl she knows (inspiration for poll!!!!). I forgot what I said to make her say this, but it might be this story:
The other day, I randomly started dancing (which I do a lot). And I thought of a ballroom dance that started with an M. So I guess I subconsciously confused the mambo and the tango, and thought I was doing the mango. As of right now, the mango is a ballroom dance and not just a delicious fruit.

I am REALLY hyper today. I have NO idea why. I think it is a mix of the first play reherseal of the school year yesterday and staying up until 11:30 last night doing homework. Musicals and over tiredness make me hyper.

Ok, today I went to the dentist to get sealants. That was fun. NOT. The dentist is usually so much fun, I was expecting to be better entertained. I did get to watch The Little Mermaid III: Ariel's Beginning though. Anyways. it's still better than the doctors. Speaking of, I almost had to go to the doctor's yesterday. AAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! I got a note in 6th period math from the office saying my mom called and I would have to leave play reherseal early, on the first day! I was pissed off. So I told the director and she said I could go, so I went outside to wait for my mom, when I saw her there waiting for me. My doctor canceled on me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did you know I break so much technology that I have a broken technology drawer in my room?????? And that doesn't even hold all the stuff I've broken.....

Happy Birthday to William Penn, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Ralph Lauren, Isaac Mizrahi, and Max Theriot! Wow, a lot of birthdays today. I hope you have a good one.

I'd like to say get well soon to my friend Sophie who is really, really, sick right now. Love ya Soph-a-loaf!

Anyways, I am going to set up a poll and then go do the dishes and then do homework. Because that is the kind of stuff I do. Bye guys!

Friday, October 10, 2008


Ha ha. It's 10-10! LOL. I laugh at random things. Like spaghetti sauce. And string cheese. Tee hee.

My friend Nat is totally awesome. And no, she didn't tell me to say this......

I'm at my best buddie Julia's house right now. We are having one of our kiddie movie marathons. Right now we are watching Another Cinderella Story with Selena Gomez. It's really strange, it get's weirder every minute. Who uses sick as a compliment? Honestly, it is a really strange movie. No wonder it went straight to DVD. Anyways, I'm not even done with it yet, so if you want a valuable opinion, watch Michael Buckley talk about on his YouTube entertainment news show, What the Buck. He tells it like it is. Anyhoo, right now there's some big dance number going on. It's kind of confuzzling. This movie has too many plot twists for its own good. AW, they're having a moment! Seriously, this movie is just like Cinderella and nothing like it at the same time. It was so funny, instead of loosing her shoe she lost her iPod. And they had a bunch of girls describe their playlists too the prince of the movie, some popstar named Joey.

EW!!!!! THAT DUDE'S A PEDOPHILE! Drew Seeley who plays the love interest of Selena Gomez's character is frikken 10 years older then her. So Julia and I keep yelling pedophile at the scream. (It's Julia's new favorite word. We also enjoy saying Holy Guacamole and Oh My Garnet.) Yeah, Julia and I were making a bunch of random videos earlier where we dubbed our voices. It sounded really funny. We also had some very entertaining conversations. But anyways it's really gross. He's 26 and she's 16 and they are both playing 17 or 18 year olds. High school seniors. Creepy dude. He should be arrested.

Speaking of high school seniors, I am SO excited for High School Musical 3: Senior Year. My mom got my the People Magazine High School Musical 3 edition for my birthday and I got really excited.

Oh shoot, I kill all technology. I just killed the TV. Oh, Julia brought it back to life. YAY! She shouldn't be trusting me with this laptop.......

Ok. I am going to leave before I kill Julia's computer. Happy birthday to Jodi Benson! Bye everyone!

Hello my friends and welcome to the much anticipated YouTube edition of The Many Thoughts of Stephanie! Ok, you guys might not have anticapated it much, but I've actually been meaning to do this for a really long time. Personally, I love YouTube, I go on it a lot, and the people there are hysterical. I also think they have nothing to do with their lives, but they are entertaining us so all is good. I've always wanted to make a video blog on YouTube, but I think I'm better at this kind of blogging. Also, I can do this without having to look good or anything. I'm sitting here in my pajamas. Seriously. I haven't even brushed my hair yet. Anyways, today I will show you all YouTube through my eyes, and all the videos I love, and not the ones I hate because I feel like being positive today. So, let's start with the unicorns shall we?

Unicorns are becoming big hits on YouTube. Do not ask me why, for I do not know. All I know is that one unicorn in particular has captured the hearts of me and all my friends. His name is Charlie. Charlie the Unicorn. And the best place to find him is SecretAgentBob's channel, Film Cow Productions. Any other channel with Charlie is a fake. This is where you get the real stuff. He has some other stuff also but none are watched as much as Charlie the Unicorn and it's sequel, Charlie the Unicorn 2. Watch these videos at your own risk. You might start hearing, "Charlie...... Let's go to Candy Mountain Charlie....." "Shun the non-beleiver. Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhun....." and other quotes at various times through out the day. It gets slightly scary.

Another fun unicorn video is Planet Unicorn. These are made by someone named tspiers. I have not watched any of his vidoes besides Planet Unicorn, so I don't know about those ones. Like Charlie the Unicorn, Planet Unicorn can be very annoying and you might get the theme song stuck in your head. Ok, you WILL get the theme song stuck in your head. Especially if it is your friends ringtone. Sars. That's enough unicorns for today, let's move on.

The next person I am going to talk about is amazing, one of my favorite people on YouTube and most of my friend's favorite person on YouTube. Especially you Julia. That's right, it's Fred, everyone's favorite 6 year-old with anger management issues. And his cousin goes to my school. How cool is that? Anyways, this guy, Fred, makes videos of him doing various things from celebrating Halloween, to losing his medication, and auditioning for the school play. OMG MY AUDITION! I HAVE TO PREPARE! Sorry about that, I really need to work on my song, but I'll stay here with you guys for a little bit longer. So go see Fred.

A great way to make it big on YouTube is obsession. And two of my biggest obsessions are, you guessed it, Twilight and Harry Potter. So I really like videos themed with these two topics.

If you, like me and most of the world's population, love Harry Potter, (or hate it, I guess you could hate it to like these videos too) go straight to Neil Cicierega's YouTube home. He does insist that he has non Harry Potter related videos, but what made him a YouTube star are his Potter Puppet Pals. Yes, Harry Potter puppet shows. These are hysterical! Harry Potter in puppet form going on his adventures. With appearences by Ron, Snape, Hermione, Dumbledore, Voldemort, and Neville, I can watch these shows over and over again. Like all the other videos these are very quoteable, and it will get on your nerves when all your friend start to belt, "Snape, Snape, Severus Snape!" and other Potter Puppet Pal tunes.

If your obsession is geared more towards vampires then wizards, head straight to NoMoreMarbles. She is a Twilighter and video blogger (who is married and has a son) and can talk for a really long time about Twilight. A really long time, her videos are like 10 minutes each. I have not seen all of her videos because she has a million and I'm not done viewing them yet and some are way funnier then others (for example, the VMAs one and the one with James and Edward) but she is just a hysterical person. So if you love Twilight, watch her videos. Please.

Last but not least, possibly thee most famous people one YouTube, scrath that, THEE most famous people on YouTube, most subscribed to of all time, with over 14,000,000 views, the two coolest Asian-Hawaiin kids ever, Ryan and Sean, NIGAHIGA!!!! (and the crowd goes wild) Seriously, these guys are HYSTERICAL. They started off just lip synching to random songs, then they made the How to Be.... videos, and the shot right into YouTube stardom. Literally, they got a movie deal out of this. A frikken movie deal. Not straight to DVD, but in theatres and all that jazz. Speaking of all that jazz, I recorded Chicago. But my dad won't let me watch it until I do my homework. But I hardly have any! But I also have a feeling Snickers is going to come kidnap me and force me to work on our history project with her. And I don't really want too. But I'm going to anyways so Snickers doesn't eat me. You see, I'm what some would call a major procrastinator. But for your information, it is a life-style choice, and I'm not forcing you to prcrastinate also! Except when people do group projects with me. Then I force them to procrastinate also. That reminds me, I need to call Sophie because she was sick on Friday (sob) and I need to tell her something.

Ok you guys, that's it basically. Happy birthday to Kate Winslet the awesome. Oh, did you guys know she's in another movie with Leonardo DiCaprio? Well, of course you did because I'm always the last to find everything out. I am really excited about that though, and when I force someone to come with me to the movie theatre on October 10th (day Twilight trailer comes out) I am hoping to see a commercial for it.

I really need to go now, I totally need to do my homework. But I'm not going to I'm going to work on my audition. Because frankly, that's more important to me right now. Bye you guys! You're awesome! Review and you'll be way more awesome!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's OCTOBER already??????? You know what that means?????????????

MY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(the 9th to be exact. No, I will not tell you what year!)

I'm really excited about my birthday this year. Not the actual day though, that's Yom Kippur, the most serious day of the year for me and my homies, the Jewish people. That's what my mom calls all my dad's Jewish friends. His homies. I've taken up the habit. They are strictly my homies though, my home dogs are Buddy and Isabelle, who are in fact my dogs. So yeah, the actual DAY of my birthday won't be that great, but I will be stuck in a hotel all day with a bunch of my friends, who know what will happen? My Hebrew birthday on the other hand, is a little later on a more fun holiday called Sukkot. ANYWAYS, what I'm really looking forword too is the presents.

Ok, I know that sounds really materialistic, but I'm a very material person. Well, in a sense. I could live without some things and not live without others. But I kind of NEED some material items right now. Here is a short list (wink wink nudge nudge):

a) A digital camera. I know, after breaking three you may not trust me with one, but seriously, I really need one. How else will I remember all the great things I do when I am (insert age I am turning here)?

b) A watch. I accidently broke my 4th watch today. But I think my P.E. teacher should buy me a new one. He'll probably end up saying I shouldn't have worn it to P.E. But I wasn't supposed to do P.E.! I got a note from my dad saying a didn't have too! And you know what? He made all the people with medicals search for basketballs in our schools resident forest. Ok, it's basically the unflattened part of the hill the P.E. area sits on top of, but it was really difficult to maneuver. It involved hopping chain link fences. No joke. I felt like a delinquent. And when hopping the fence (a newly required skill, if I may add) my watch got caught and broke. A really good jeweler could probably fix it, but I'd rather have my P.E. teacher pay for a new one. I think that's more satisfying.

c) iTunes money! I haven't gotten a new song in ages, and I really need to listen to some new material!!!!!!!!!!!

Everything else I just want, I don't NEED. Those things I need. Or at least I will benefit from. Want to here about the stuff I might not benefit from but you can get me anyway? Oh, what fun!

a) Tickets to go to New York and see a real Broadway show. I only see them when they come on tour out here. I've never seen a REAL one. Or tickets to go anywhere else actually. Maybe London! They have really good theatre there!

b) Barnes and Nobles gift cards. Wait, I could probably benefit from these, 'cause reading is good for you and all. Here's the thing, I hate gift cards or cash presents. I find those to be excuses for when you don't know what to get someone. So instead go to Barnes and Nobles and get me what ever you find appropriate. Not Borders though. I hate Borders. Barnes and Nobles shall live on! I'm sorry Borders, but the scent of your stores make my puke. It's so industrial. Barnes and Nobles is my home away from home. The scent used to bug me, but I got an aquired immunity. The people who work at my local one actually know me. Some of them. The people that work in the kid's department have practically seen me grow up. And the people in the teen department know me as the really obsessive Twilight fanatic. But who's keeping track?

Ok, I am procrastinating and have A TON of homework to do. Coming up on TMTS though, we have the YOUTUBE edition were I will tell you all about the coolness of YouTube and the best videos on it and why I want to but can't make a video. I've been planning it for a long time so I really hope you enjoy it (cough cough Ashley cough cough). Happy birthday to Annie Leibovitz, Sting, and Tara Lynne Barr! Have a wonderful day you guys! Bye!
