Hootie and those blowfish say to just let her cry

MOVIES WHICH HAVE INSPIRED THE STRONGEST EMOTIONAL RESPONSES IN ME
  • My Dog Skip: all of my siblings and I made a pact a long time ago to never again watch this movie. It is TOO SAD. This is not a good movie for children!
  • Hope Floats: okay, all of the things Sandra Bullock has to go through are just too much. Too much! Like when Ann Veal pretends that she's not her mom!! It is so so so sad. Tabby and I actually scared a boy out of the basement with my weeping during this movie.
  • Remember the Titans: "Don't you see the family resemblance? He's my brother." Cue hysterical Jordyn. Every single time.
  • Marley and Me: nope, never watching this again, never.
  • Little Women: okay, this always causes me both anger and sadness. And disgust. Sorry, but Claire Danes' Big Scene is ... sweaty. But HELLO WINONA, do you want to be miserable? Oh, you do? Great, stay with the old dude. I was going to suggest that if you want to have a happy, fun life, you should marry Laurie, but go right ahead. Your plan is much better. (I mean, you'd be married to Batman!!)
    Yah trick yah

  • I have been known to cry in 13 Going on 30
  • Steel Magnolias...but I've talked about that already.
And now I can add Toy Story 3 to this list. I saw it twice this weekend, and I laughed my face off, and I cried my best cry of 2010 (so far), and I felt like it helped me come to terms with my childhood ending. Or something.

The first sunburn of the season! Hopefully this year I'll look less like the Phantom of the Opera post-mask removal and more like Gidget after a fun and fancy free day at the beach.

I missed the boat to complain, but I'm doing it anyway

Remember how that doofus Lee won "American Idol"? How on Middle Earth did THAT happen?!
Yeah, we're all surprised too, sir. And WHY in the name of all that is holy did they let him proceed with his goatee/sideburns/entire coif? It's like he walked into the barbershop (or whatever men call salons) and specifically asked for the Smash Mouth.

Anyways. I am just grateful that I will never see/hear the other contestants ever again, considering they obviously will not have careers in music after that disgusting display which was season nine of "American Idol".

Look how DOPEY they all look! I think the dopiest face belongs to...okay I seriously cannot decide. Least dopey face is obviously Tim Urban, but literally every other contestant looks 100% goobery. Except for the cute black girl and that dumb girl in the pink dress.

Top 3 should've been Crystal, Deedee, and Tim--Crystal because she was the best one there, Deedee because I hated her voice the second-least, and Tim because at least then I would've had something to look at.

Now if only the sun would actually come out

Blogging is waaay harder in the summer. I'm not sure if this is due to the fact that I have less time to daydream since I'm not taking any classes and thus am not constantly thinking of brilliant/insane ideas that I feel compelled to share with the Internet, or if I am just suuuuper lazy.

SUMMER ACCOMPLISHMENTS THUS FAR
  1. I am the proud owner of the entire "Daria" collection on DVD.
  2. Movies I have seen at the dollar theater, in order of quality: Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Clash of the Titans, Percy Jackson and the Longest Movie Title Ever Lightning Thief
  3. Seven Peaks season pass! Wooohooooo!!
  4. Backstreet Boys concert tickets! The big day is July 23, and even though I was always an NSYNC fan, I am very very very excited.
  5. Tonight at the Orem Summerfest, Alex and I got our first airbrushed tattoos of the season. I'm pretty obsessed with mine:
    I know right?

  6. I got me some bangs! Here they are at the very beginning, but they're currently at a perilous length and need to be dealt with.
Yes, I am driving the family minivan in this picture, and somehow I still manage to look totally current*. Probably has something to do with the fact that I look like I'm still in high school.

Anyways, I have a lot to look forward to this summer: Toy Story 3 comes out this Friday, SEVEN PEAKS PASSES, Backstreet Boys, new season of "The Bachelorette"...yep, we're looking at another successful summer, I'd say.

*I mean this in the "Top Model" way, like "Gurrrl you 25, you ain't current" or "We put you in this horrible outfit and did your makeup all kuh-razy, and you made that potato sack look current"
