Crush of the Weeeeeek!

July 30, 2009

After watching the first two episodes of FX’s True Blood, my hands down choice this week is the delectable…

Anna Paquin

And because I can’t decide between blonde or brunette you even get two pictures!

Could you love a Canadian more…?

Strike two!

July 29, 2009

I buy alot of things from the Internet. I had only ever had one problem before with this (I bought a mug, it arrived broken on delivery, and the company wouldn’t refund or replace) …until today. I ordered Grey’s Anatomy Season 4 third party from Amazon.co.uk at the start of the week, and although it arrived in good time – it was in the wrong region! For those of you that don’t know (I’m thinking Americans here…) in the UK, our DVD players are only Region 2 compatible, and so cannot play Region 1. The boxset was advertised as Region 2 on the site, but was Region 1 when arriving at my door. I’ve started the complaints procedure, but am not happy! More than anything, I’m frustrated that the one time I try and do the decent (not to mention legal!) thing and buy the series rather than download, I pay for it …in more ways than from my purse šŸ˜¦

Potty for Potter!

July 26, 2009

I have just read the most amazing piece of news EVER! Apparently, throughout the American suburb of Wauwatosa, Milwaukee, Harry Potter fans plastered STOP signs with Voldemort’s name …thus reading STOP Voldemort! It is thought that around 80 signs in the ‘burbĀ have beenĀ altered, and thatĀ similar markings have also been spotted across the US and in England! Quite frankly, I think it’s an awesome tribute to Miss J.K. and I’m sure she had a quiet chuckle to herself when she read about this. Hopefully we’ll see some more of these signs crop up around the UK. Personally, that would make my day… ;p

Down the rabbit hole…

July 25, 2009

Finally, the moment is here! The good folk at Disney have finally blessed us with the teaser trailer for Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland. The cast is amazing, the look of the film is amazing… we just have to hope now that Burton doesn’t make the whole story about Depp as the Mad Hatter and remembers that the star of the film is actually Alice! Fingers crossed eh…! Anyway, here’s the trailer for you to have a gander –

I played the White Rabbit in a school concert once, and had to sing and everything! Good times… (though perhaps not for those watching!)

You…

I miss talking to you
I miss the sound of your voice
I miss your laugh
I miss you…

Crush of the week!!

She was in my dream last night …what more can I say?!

Hangin’ on another day…

July 20, 2009

The broken clock is a comfort, it helps me sleep tonight
Maybe it can stop tomorrow from stealing all my time
I am here still waiting though i still have my doubts
I am damaged at best, like you’ve already figured out

I’m falling apart, I’m barely breathing
With a broken heart that’s still beating
In the pain, there is healing
In your name I find meaning
So I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on
I’m barely holdin’ on to you

The broken locks were a warning you got inside my head
I tried my best to be guarded, I’m an open book instead
I still see your reflection inside of my eyes
That are looking for a purpose, they’re still looking for life

I’m falling apart, I’m barely breathing
With a broken heart that’s still beating
In the pain, is there healing
In your nameĀ I find meaning
So I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on
I’m barely holdin’ on to you

I’m hangin’ on another day
Just to see what you throw my way
And I’m hanging on to the words you say
You said that I will be OK

The broken lights on the freeway left me here alone
I may have lost my way now, haven’t forgotten my way home

I’m falling apart, I’m barely breathing
With a broken heart that’s still beating
In the pain there is healing
In your name I find meaning
So I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on,
I’m barely holdin’ on to you

I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on,
I’m barely holdin’ on to you.

Sucky secrets.

July 19, 2009

I’m not sure why, but PostSecret kind of annoyed me this week. I think it was just that there were a few of the posts that were almost there ..they almost had something that I could relate to, but they just didn’t quite hit it on the nose. I’m not sure if that even makes any sense, but for some reason it annoyed me. It probably also doesn’t help that my new mobile phone which I ordered online 4 days ago hasn’t arrived yet …I’m having serious text withdrawals!

Blind For Me

July 18, 2009

So as you may have noticed, I have a tendancy to post quite a few song lyrics that are reflective of my mood at the time, or that I just plain and simply like. Today however I thought I would treat (well I hope it’s a treat…) you with a little insight into my own music stylings. Below is the lyrics for the first song I ever wrote. I think this must be from about 5 or so years ago now, but I’m still pretty happy with my efforts. I even have more …if you want to hear read more!? Gotta love the teen angst.. ;p

I didn’t lose you, you were never mine
You said we’d take things slowly
I wanted you, but you played me
Now I’m left waiting alone

Blind for me, you couldn’t see
Exactly what you’re doing to me
Blind for me, you couldn’t believe
I wanted to call you mine

I see now how you used me
Another heart for you to claim
And if I could turn back time
I wonder, would I love you again?

Blind for me, you couldn’t see
Exactly what you’re doing to me
Blind for me, you couldn’t believe
I wanted to call you mine

But I’m no longer alone now
I’ve left the memory of you behind
Now I don’t need you anymore
I’m able to say goodbye

Blind for me, you couldn’t see
Exactly what you’re doing to me
Blind for me, you couldn’t believe
I wanted to call you mine
