Roberto Benigni Kick [07 Mar 2006|06:22pm]
[ mood | cheerful ]

About two weeks ago I was on a Humphrey Bogart kick. Right now, I'm on a Roberto Benigni kick. He is so funny and adorable. We won't talk about Pinnocchio. Hahaha. "In a magical land, where children look like adults....and adults look like....adults......" LOL. That was the lamest excuse ever to have Roberto Benigni play Pinnocchio. I really want to buy Johnny Stecchino, and Son of Pink Panther on DVD. I've already been told though, that the only way I can get my hands on Johnny Stecchino is if I order it off Amazon or something. Nobody has it. That movie is so adorable. He actually directed it too. Much better than Pinnocchio. Those death bunnies were beyond disturbing.

I watched Life is Beautiful at Michelle's house. I truly think that is the saddest movie ever made - and the most beautiful. Roberto Benigni is far from cute, but you've got to admit, he is so romantic. "Buon Giorno Principessa!" I love that. That is so cute. I was really surprised by how much of that movie I could actually understand. It's amazing how much Italian a person can understand if they can already understand Spanish; and visa-versa. Being half Cuban myself, I can say with immunity that all Spanish is, is just butchered up Italian. But Potuguese and French I can't follow at all.
Michelle is borrowing that movie, which means I won't see it for weeks, or maybe a month or two. She never has time to sit down and watch a movie. I can't watch that movie without balling my eyes out. I like to watch the first half of it where he's courting her, and it's all romantic. Once they get to the camp, that's it. I either have to turn it off, or cry my eyes out.

Roberto Benigni has got to play Al, though. Still no one for Cath and Kohl though. poor poor babies. They're just too unique. Although, Kohl could be played by that German looking kid from Never Been Kissed. Cath is another story though.

Gotta go buy some new clothes now. My wardrobe is beyond pathetic.

~Bye!~

Nothing really. Just Checking In. [05 Mar 2006|07:28pm]
[ mood | okay ]

Went to Cracker Barrel today in Lakeland with my grandparents from Tampa. (Dad's parents) It was kind of a belated birthday for my grandma, and an early birthday for my dad's birthday tomorrow. Good food. Cute waiter - real nice.It was Sunday, which means I could break my Lent thing and have some ice cream and chocolate coins. My stomach didn't take too well to the chocolate coins. Cheap waxy things. We took the scenic route on the way back, due to congestion on I 4. Very Southern, and quaint. Too much of Florida is being urbanized. Not cool urbanized. Ugly, constantly under construction urbanized, and so heavily run over by tourists, and people who want to move here, that Florida really isn't Southern anymore, as much as say, Georgia, South Carolina, or any other Southern state. And the parts that are Southern are mainly over run by hicks and boring nothingness. I wanna move somewhere cute, charming, and Southern. I wanna move to Savannah. It was nice to drive throug an area that wasn't bombarded by construction.

Gotta go now, to buy a birthday present for Daddy.

~Bye~

Randomness Part I: Alternative Endings to Stupid Movies [05 Mar 2006|01:37am]
[ mood | awake ]

Alternative Ending to Mulan II:

Because Mushu stopped the wedding to the Qui-Gong prince, the alliance is never formed and the Mongols desecrate China. The camera pans out to show Ling's severd smiling head. Sad Chinese music plays as cherry blossom petels circle in the wind around smiling head. Credits roll up over this scene.

Alternative Ending to Peter Pan II:

Wendy's daughter flies dramatically over the water to free the lost boys from the pirate ship. She is dragged under water by the tenticles of the giant octopus and eaten. Close up on Captain Hook's horrified face. (hand and hook held up to face in shock with his mustache curling up) "The End" pops up in bloody letters.

Alternative Ending to What Lies Beneath:

As the audience is trying to figure out the twist, the dog comes down the stairs in a dress. Movie fades out on Harrison Ford's shocked face. Credits roll up.

Please, let me meet someone....... [05 Mar 2006|01:27am]
[ mood | lonely ]

I just want a good guy. He doesn't even have to be drop dead gorgeous or anything. Most of those guys are jerks anyway. Just as long as he's decent looking, I'm good. Just please, let him be sweet and charming, and treat me like gold. Let him have a good head on his shoulders, but let him have a playful side. Let him be a responsible goof ball. That'd be good.

Movie Review: Johnny Stecchino [26 Feb 2006|10:36am]
[ mood | lazy ]

I rented this movie called Johnny Stecchino, and I highly recomend it. It's all in Italian with English subtitles. Thank God, because I despise anything that's dubbed. It's starring Roberto Benigni, and Nicoletta Braschi, the same woman from Pinnocchio and Life is Beautiful; (who is also his wife, I found out.)

It's about a dopey naive bus driver named Dante (Roberto Benigni), who I belive lives in Tuscany or something like that, who runs into a beautiful woman named Maria, (Nicoletta Braschi) who seems to find him fascinating. It turns out that the reason she finds him so amazing is that he is an exact replica of her husband, (also plyed by Roberto Benigni) Johnny Stecchino, which means Johnny Toothpic - a nick name he earned in America for being so skinny. Johnny Stecchino is a notorious mobster in Sicily who has a hit out on him for accidently killing a rival mobster's wife. So Maria tells Dante that he looks like a Johhny, and that she'll always call him Johnny. Then she convinces him to acccompany her to Palermo, Sicily, where he will unknowingly pose as Johnny Stecchino, and get killed for him, while the real Johnny Stecchino remanins in hiding, waiting to escape to Argentina with his wife. Of course, the real Johnny stecchino is a dick, and not at all like the sweet, playful Dante; as Maria soon discovers for herself.

It's such a cute movie, and it has an adorable ending. It's absolutely hilarious. I highly recomend it. You can rent it at Hollywood Video. Unless you go to the one by Redbug road, and then you have to wait until I return it. I think I'm gonna try to buy it on DVD.

Nothing, Nothing, Nothing Tralala. [24 Feb 2006|04:58pm]
[ mood | relaxed ]

Completely did nothing today. The Schwartz' gave me the day off, 'cause I'll be working for them all day tomorrow. I gotta do something today. My grandparents are coming over tonight to see the second night of Shannon's play at school. "The Bad Seed" She's playing the mother. I saw her last night. She was real good. I think tonight I'll go out to dinner or shop or something. I gotta do my hair.

Hott vs. Sexy [21 Feb 2006|07:49pm]
[ mood | good ]

I don't care what anybody says. Hott and sexy are two entirely separate qualities.

HOTT: Totally has to do with physical appearance. This means that the man is attractive, and pleasing to the eye. Attractive at its highest level, in fact.

SEXY: Totally attitude. Nothing at all to do with looks WHATSOEVER. It's all charm, charisma, confidence, assertiveness, forcefulness, and having a way with the ladies.

In fact, there are plenty of guys who are completely hott, but they don't do anything for me because they're not at all sexy. (Orlando Bloom for example) Likewise, there are guys who aren't particularly drop dead gorgeous, (not ugly of course) but are dead sexy anyway. Some guys have got the whole package - and that my friends, is called hitting the jack pot.

EXAMPLE: (Mind you, this is just my opinion)

TOP 10 HOTTEST GUYS:
Al Pacino (Young)
Robert Downey Jr.
Josh Holloway
Johnny Depp
Antonia Banderes
Andy Garcia
Derek Jeter
Robert DeNiro (Young)
Ben Stiller
Will Smith
Danzel Washington

TOP 10 SEXIEST GUYS:
Humphrey Bogart
Clark Gable
Bruce Willis
Jason Isaacs
Marlon Brando (Young. NOT Vito Colrleone)
John O'Hurley (J. Peterman, Elaine's boss from Seinfeld.)
Carey Grant
Mel Gibson
James Caan
Liam Neeson

BOTH:
Al Pacino (Young)
Josh Holloway
Johnny Depp
Antonio Banderes
Will Smith
John O'Hurley
Danzel Washington
Robert DeNiro (Young)
Mel Gibson
Robert Downey Jr.

For the record, the whole package is great; but sexy is more important.

Randomness [17 Feb 2006|11:01pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]

LING: This shit is bananas! B-A-N-A-N-A-S!

BARNEY: Hey! You stole my voice ANd my line!

*Barney sues Ling*

GWEN STEFANI: Actually Barney, that's MY line - from MY song!

*Gwen sues Barney*

BARNEY: Oh, yeah? Well you stole that one song from "Fiddler on the Roof"!

*Tevye sues Gwen Stefani*

TEVYE:*singing with that weird Tevye shimmy* Now I am a rich man, idle didle didle diddle diddle diddle deedle dum, since I sued that Gwen Stefani bitch, idle deedle didle didle dum.

Yeah, there's a bit of randomness that only Tiff and I can understand.

As for my day today, I did practically nothing. Oh, I checked out eharmony.com, only to find that it sucks. Well, maybe it's great for some, but not me. I'm just sick of meeting people at school, or at clubs, or whatever, just to have it all crumble apart in my hands. I don't know what the problem is. I'm smart, attractive, and fun. (Nothing wrong with saying that if you don't take yourself seriously) But I just can't find a guy that I can last with. They always either become obsessed or our spark just totally fades away. I want a LONG TERM relationship! Not the short lived ones always have. I always thought going to a website for that kind of thing was beyond lame. But, I dunno, I guess it was my lame ass lonely Valentines Day spent doing Homework while babysitting that pushed me to do it. It set me up with four guys. A personal trainer, who was alright, but really shared none of my interests, a dork who said he was 24 and had never had a girlfriend, an anime geek (not a normal anime fan. an anime geek) which would not be for me at all, and some other guy who I'm not so sure about. I guess I'll just have to continue meeting people the old fashion way. Hopefully one day I'll meet a guy who is neither indifferent, nor obsessive. A nice normal guy.

I know that no ones "ideal" mate really exists. Ther's always differences and flwas. But just for fun, since everyone has an image of perfection in their mind about a mate, here's mine:

He has dark, thick hair.

He has beautiful eyes. Preferably brown, but I don't really care what color.

His skin is clear, creamy and smooth, and he is at least more tan than I am.

He does NOT have that typical hot guy look that all the girls are going for right now. He's got something interesting about his face - not perfect. Like a scar, or a pronounced nose or something. In his face is character. NOT perfection!

He's not too much taller than me.

He's NOT beefy. He's not digustingly scrawney. He's thin slim and trim, but I still feel secure in his arms. He's healthy and in decent shape.

He pampers me, but isn't overly mushy

He makes me feel secure and protected.

He doesn't let anybody treat me badly.

There is no questioning that I am his, but he doesn't own me, because he is mine as much as I'm his.

He gets jealous of other guys in a flattering and sexy way, but not in an obsessive way.

He takes care of me, and I support him.

He is sucessful: doctor, lawyer, businessman, ect. But he has an appreciation for my child like side and likes to have fun with me.

He is kind, sweet and patient with me; but doesn't mind the occasional healthy bickering... we always make up. ;)

Oh, Yeah. He's clean shaven. Facial hair is gross! Except on Sawyer... yummy....

Yeah well, I know I'll never find that guy exactly. But I can always keep looking for something remotely close.

Well, I guess I'll go to bed now. I have to go to alli Schwartz birthday party tomorrow, (she's 4 now) and I have the cutest little Barbie mermaid dress up thing or whatever it is for her. I really hope she likes it.

~Bye~

[ mood | geeky ]

Well, I got back today from the Schwartz. I've been staying there overnight to help Michelle take care of the kids while Rich was on a business trip. I really felt like an actual governess. It was really fun. Jackson is sooooo cute, and he seems to understand alot more than you think - and he's talking quite a lot, and more and more of it is coherent. I love Jax - he's my prince. I love the girls too. They're monsters at around five o'clock though. but when I put them to bed, they tell me they love me and my heart just melts. That new born Hunter gets prettier and prettier every day. I love those kids so much.

I was so sad to say goodbye to Ginger yeasterday - I mean I cried and everything. Gionger's mom actually made me chocoloate chip muffins and I cried a river. I was so glad to leave that awful company, but I never wanted to leave those kids. Luckily, Ginger's mom says she'll have me babysit (hopefully). Yannelly and I are supposed to do luch with Jackie sometime this week or something.

Anyway, I'm watching Godfather II, so I need to drool over Michael Corleone now.

~Bye~

The Five Day Count-Down [04 Feb 2006|10:53pm]
[ mood | mellow ]

Ha ha ha ha! Monday begins my last 4 days at Lifestyles. I'll mainly be glad to get away from Jim. But I'll be devastated to leave those kids. I've gotten so attatched to them. Ginger's mom almost cried when she heard I was leaving. She's gonna have me babysit Ginners because we're just gonna miss each other way too much. Ginger and I are pals. I'll also really miss Alali and Elin, Gracie (Cindy Lu Hoo) and Jaxon (Santa Clause Jax, not Jackson Schwartz) Loriana, Eric, Christina, Johnathan, Hannan and Mei-Mei, and so many others. I still want to work there as a sub - just so I can see the kids. I'll also miss Yannelly and Jackie. Nelly and I are gonna eat out somewhere on my last day. (You know, I loved this job until Jim came along. It's a crap company anyhow though. It's for the best.)

Well, Michelle Schwartz wants me to stay over from Sunday to Friday 'cause rich is out of town, and the girls are so excited. I gotta pack.

~Night~

Singing: "And That's How Kim Became: The Nanny." [26 Jan 2006|11:07pm]
[ mood | relieved ]

Well, problem at work solved. I put in my two weeks, and I am officially a "governess" - ha ha ha. Yes, that's right, I'm the Schwartz kids' nanny, so to speak. I just don't live there. (Yeah, that'll be next. lol) Well, they got the new baby that they adopted today. He is sooo beautiful! Michelle wanted to name the baby Joshua David Schwartz, and Rich wanted Hunter Preston Schwartz or something. He said her name was a Rabbi name, and she said his was way too country club yuppy; so they compromised with Hunter David Schwartz. He looks like he could blend in with the family, so I don't think anyone will ever know that he's adopted. He is precious though.

I'm going to make so much more money with this job, so I can sock away some cash in savings for an apartment, finallly. :) I'm so glad I won't have to deal with the pressures of being supervisor anymore. Plus, I adore the Schwartz kids - so I'm more than happy to take this job.

Well, gotta go. Gotta get to bed. Tomorrow is day two of my last two weeks at Lifestyles. I got double shift, and then I gotta make a long trip out to Ocala to see Tiffi. :) I'm so tired, I've gotta catch some zzzzzzzzzzz's.............

Get me outta this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [20 Jan 2006|10:43pm]
[ mood | discontent ]

I hate being supervisor right now. Jim is making my life at Kids Club miserable. He actually wanted me to hire someone that was willing to work just 5 hours a week. Who the hell would take those kind of shit hours?! That's so rediculous! Anyway, I'm not happy at all, and it's a shame, because before I was the supervisor it was the most wonderful low paying job in the entire universe. Now it's just the most miserable good paying job ever. What was I thinking?! I'd be making more working as a nanny for the Schwartz kids. I think I'll go to the airlines. I don't see myself at this job much longer...and it's not like they're ever gonna give me benefits. So what's the point?

Help.....

Slummin' It [01 Aug 2005|09:10pm]
[ mood | relaxed ]

I literally did nothing today. I couldn't fall asleep until about 5:30 this morning; and then I woke up again at about noon because the phone was ringigng. I called SCC and they FINALLY recieved my transcript from Valencia. I swear, comminity colleges take forever and a day. Anyway, I talked to Tiff for a little while, and then I took a shower. After that I just hung around and watched T.V. and stuff. It was a very relaxing day off. I'm covering somebody's shift at work tomorrow. I seriously need more hours. The good theing is, that when Jess and Mallory leave, there will be more hours open.
My mom is having me watch this old movie from Spain that my grandma lent her. It has no subtitles; which fine and dandy for my mom; but I'm struggling a lot. It's hard watching a movie that you only get the basic jist of. Plus, I'm used to Cuban accents. Spanish accents can be hard to follow. They all talk with a lisp. From what I'm getting though, it's a beautiful movie; and the little boy in it is adorable.
Anyway; tomorrow I'll have more to say after I've worked and actually done stuff.

Tummy Full of Butterflies [02 May 2005|06:40pm]
[ mood | bouncy ]

Teeheehee!!! I'm so giddy! For the past few days I've been so giddy! :) I met a guy and I really like him. He's so nice. We were in the same Jazz class, but we never talked until the last night. We just kept talking, and by the end, we had exchanged phone numbers, and on Saturday we went on a date. Oh yeah, his name is Greg Banta.
We planned to hang out for the day, and then go to his friend's surprise birthday party. We both had an adventure that day. We both tried something new. First I took him downtown to Vhin's, and he tried Vietnamese food for the first time. We both had the Com Tay Cam, and he loved it. He also really liked the boba. I had the honey, and he had boba milk tea. We went to FOT, and he met Quong, but Debbie wasn't there.
Anyway, after that he asked me what I wanted to do, since we had a few hours to kill before the party. I told him to suggest something, since I had suggested going downtown. So I'm expecting him to be a typical guy and suggest that we go back to his house to "watch a movie" *rolls eyes* But no! He takes me canoeing! My very first time canoeing, and I loved it! We got lost on the way to his friend's house who has the canoe. We drove around for like an hour, listening to Queen. Ha Ha. Fun. I love Queen. We heard aligators mating and everything! At first it kinda freaked me out, but, after a while I was so curious, I was hoping I'd see one. I had sooo much fun! I love canoeing! It was soooo cool! We got lost on the river for a while trying to find the dock again, and by the time we got back, it was dusk. But that's OK, because we had fun getting lost too. Eventuallly, the only way we knew we were on the right track was because I recognized a log in the ater that I had freaked out over earlier, because I thought it was an aligator.
So then, we went to the party, andI'm always nervous about being in a crowd of people I don't know. But luckily, he didn't know a lot of them either. But we both mingled right away. Everyone at the party was terrific. We played a fun round of fuse ball - I sucked, but he always wanted me on his team.
He took me home that night, and we listened to Muse on the way home. He loved them, so he borrowed it to make a copy. Then he kissed me goodnight. It was a good first date frencher. Shallow tounge...it gave me the shivers. It's been forever since I got the shivers on a date. *Sigh* I got butterflies in my stomach. It's been a long time, too. I've never had that much fun on a date ever!
I'm seeing him again tomorrow after work. We'll be canoeing again. He wants to teach me how to scuba dive too. He's so much fun! He hates to be stuck at home, just like me. He's a Libra like me too, and we have a lot in common. We share a lot of the same interests too. Maybe I sound stupid, but I've never felt this giddy about a date befor. I can't wait until tomorrow. *Girlish Giggle*
Well, My Mom needs the computer.
Bye!

*Singin' the Blues* "Brotha can you spare a dime?" [11 Mar 2005|08:05pm]
[ mood | blah ]

Ugh! I'm actually broke except for the $10 in my wallet that my mom gave me out of the kindness of her heart. I got paid today at firehouse. It was already a crap pay check because they haven't been giving me any hours. But, whatever. It's money, right? So then I go to the bank, and I already have to deposit $65 into my mom's account to pay her back for the gas I used. I actually owed her $112, but she was being nice 'cuz I could never have afforded it after this paycheck. So I get to the bank, and it turns out a couple things I paid for on my card never went through until yesterday or today, or some crap like that - anyway, they took forever to go through; and with all the courtesy feees they slap on you when you go even a dollar overdrawn, it turns out that I'm suddenly overdrawn by $109. I just about had a heart attack, and a mental break down, because I had been looking foward to my pay check all week. So then I had to still deposit the $65 into my mom's account, and the rest ino my mortally wounded checking. Now I'm $40 overdrawn, and today I stupidly used my card to pay for something that was 50 cents, because I didn't have a dime on me. So I'm sure they're gonna zap me again for $25 more. So then I'll be about $60 overdrawn. So I can't touch my account for two weeks until I get paid again - and even then, that's gonna be a crap pay check, because thy've gotten into this retarded trend at work of only giving me 16 and a half hours a week. They've done that for like the past 4 weeks! AAAHHHH! *pulls at hair in frustration* I'm a full time college student at SCC, so I really don't have the time for the 40 hour week thing. But I told them I need to be getting at least 20 hours a week - and I was getting that at first, but it's like suddenly ther's this new 16 hour trend happening here. But anyway, for two weeks now I have no bank account. *sniffle*

Luckily though, this coming Thursday, (St. Patrick's Day) is the last day of the promotion at work for the Muscular Dystrophy fundraising thing. We've been doing the shamrock thing. The green shamrocks are fot $1, and the gold ones are ffor $5. Whoever sells the most shamrocks by the end of the promotion gets $50. I'd guess that about 70% or maybe even 80% of those shamrocks hanging on the wall are mine. So tthat'll be $50. I won't put it my account though for it to be eaten. I'll take care of that with my next paycheck's money. I've sold way too many shamrocks not to enjoy the $50.

Anyway, I gotta go. My mom wants me to help her clean the house because my grandparents are coming to vist from Tampa tomorrow.

~Bye~
