I believe in Unicorns, Bigfoot, “Nessie,” Angels, Fairies, Leprechauns, Miracles, Santa Claus, God, Mother Nature, Ghosts, Demons, Re-Incarnation, Heaven and even occasionally, Humanity.
My blog, that is. It’s always here when I need to come back and write, but it never chastises me for leaving in the first place. It’s a space for me to clear my head of all the static and just let the words flow out onto “paper” (rather, screen). I’ve had this domain name – Starryskye – since 2000 and it’s become something way more advanced than I had ever imagined while I was typing out simple HTML code into my Frontpage 2000 install.
I think it’s time for me to treat this blog as my friend and ally again. To channel my creativity and actually make my brain function more often – instead of just “going through the motions” of life like I have been lately.
Hence – the simple layout. It won’t last long, because I’ve always got to have some wild “pops” of color going on (in fact, as I write this my hair is shocking pink colored).
I think I need to find time to breathe. This is why I am still awake (and writing) at midnight. It’s quiet with the exception of the low sounds of “The Civil Wars” playing off my iPhone. The air conditioner is blowing. The children are asleep. The husband is away. It’s just me and my computer. Thoughts becoming words.
It’s rather nice sometimes.
I love that Emma Watson is getting further and further away from her “Hermione” counterpart WITHOUT turning into your stereotypical “child-star-turned-drug-whore.” That said – grownup Emma, wielding an ax and a super cute haircut, dropping the F-Bomb and robbing several men of liquor – was just ONE of the hysterical moments featured in the new movie “This is the End.”
Thanks to the Aloha Agency, LLC (who doesn’t have a website – but has a Facebook) – I got to bring my husband on a DATE and take him to see a screening of This is the End (which comes out tomorrow!)
This is the End is a full-length movie based on a 2007 short comedy film called Jay and Seth versus the Apocalypse film written by writer-actors Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and director Jason Stone. The movie follows longtime buddies Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel to a party at James Franco’s house where they (and a host of other celebrities) are faced with the impending apocalypse.
The movie is rated “R” for a reason! Seth and Jay “reconnect” with lots (and lots) of weed and 3D gaming at the start of the movie. Then, at the celebrity party (featuring cameos from Rhianna, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, David Krumholtz, Aziz Ansari, Kevin Hart and many, many more) there is rampant drug use (apparently, Michael Cera is a MAJOR coke-head with a penchant for bathroom sexcapades) as well as booze, general shenanigans and a GIANT art piece shaped like a dong. It’s HILARIOUS for those of us who of legal-age to laugh at this stuff! But, seriously, don’t bring the kids!
I gotta say – this movie was HILARIOUS! Sure it’s ridiculous and stupid – but there’s sort of a message! It’s about friendship, good deeds, facing your fears … and drugs! Yay! I recommend grabbing your honey or a group of friends and seeing This is the End. It’s a crazy, fun ride that provides lots of belly laughs, celebrities falling into a Hellmouth and
Channing Tatum in a Gimp suit!
So, one of my online ‘friends’ went out on the town last night with some girlfriends and met one of the stars from Glee! I’m so excited for her! I never meet celebs for a couple reasons – one being that I never go OUT! The other reason is because I am SO LAME! I think I get star struck too easily – I see a celebrity and think “hey, that’s so and so” and instead of just ASKING like a normal person I get all stupid and WALK AWAY (occasionally snapping a not-so-covert photo). I’m lame.
I live in Hawaii – there are actual CELEBRITIES here! In fact – my current celebrity crush Josh Hutcherson was here only a couple months ago shooting scenes for Catching Fire (the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy). I was hiking over where they were shooting and I am CERTAIN I was a few feet away when he walked by. Did I see if it was him? NO!
Lame, lame, lame ………
Last night I attended my second EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) “class” with my friend Sarah.
EFT is a form of counseling intervention that draws on various theories of alternative medicine including acupuncture, neuro-linguistic programming, energy medicine, and Thought Field Therapy. Basically, tapping on meridian points on the body (derived from acupuncture) can release energy blockages that cause negative emotions. Sounds wacky I know – but it’s pretty amazing stuff.
The premise of the couple classes I’ve attended have been that, when you are a little kid (think 2-3 years old) you are forming your little personality and how to navigate through life. The decisions you make THEN affect the way you behave, think, etc. as an adult. It makes a LOT of sense. It’s actually finding the ROOT of issues you may be having and trying to essentially “remove the weeds” in order to “plant the seeds” and deal with things better (be it pain, anxiety, depression, anger, etc.)
I’m really dumbing it down here because I am still a MAJOR noob when it comes to EFT. I’m really enjoying learning about it though. Attending the class is very relaxing for me, and I feel that the “tapping” is actually helping me a bit. I need to pick a time and “tap” each day on various things. In fact, I think I should make a list of things of things to “tap” on.
Anyway, I have Helen’s website bookmarked (Helen is the lovely lady who runs the class) and plan on reading more.
Oh – and a sidenote! Last month (the meetings happen monthly) I met a woman who I thought could benefit from some of the personal defense products that I sell – I got up the courage and gave her my business card. I ended up selling her a pepper spray right there. I’m hoping she never has to use it – but it warms my heart that she now knows where to get self defense products. That’s why I do what I do!
