It's so hard to say goodbye....
All my bags are packed I'm ready to go....except instead of leaving on a jet plane....I'm leaving in a completely packed van...and I'm not fully ready to go....I mean clothing and stuff-wise I am...but emotionally...def not....

The Hollerers stopped by tonight to say goodbye along with Renee and her mom....my aunt Joan and cousin Jessi and grandma was over earlier....I didn't really cry when my friends left....except for the kinda fake crying that we were all doing...kinda mocking each other...but when they left it really hit me....I won't be seeing them for another at least 2 months....wow.....that's when I cried....and then I didn't really stop...as my parents and I were loading the van...I just continued to cry....and as I am writing this...I have tears in my eyes...I love my friends so much....we are so incredibly close....and my life is going to be so different without them.....then when my parents saw me crying...they cried too...even my mom....which is crazy....cause she NEVER cries....EVER.....she said I was just nervous and that's normal and not to worry and that I'm gonna do fine on my own.....this just made me cry more...cause I realize now how much I'm gonna miss my family as well.....ughhh...I hate all this crying!!!

Steve has called me like 10 times in the past few days ...and either I haven't picked up or when I pick up I tell him I'll call him back and then I never do.....everything has just been so crazy these past few days I haven't really been able to talk....I don't want him to think I'm already forgetting about him....because I'm not and never will.....

At least I finally have everything packed though....and I finished that prom/graduation album I had wanted to finish before I left....so at least I could breathe some sort of sigh of relief....

I'm gonna go finish some last minute things....e-mail me from now on at ab4151a@american.edu....but I'll still have Cutie12587 on AIM...this will prob be my last entry for a while.....I love you guys all so much!!!....I could never fully express in words how I feel about all of you...thank you for making my last night on Long Island so special....Hollerers forever!!!

*Note for anyone who has come across this journal and who is wondering if once I got to school I stopped writing in it...the answer is no I didn't stop writing...but from here on all of my entries are locked to friends only so unless you're on my friends list you won't be reading about my life*

Packing....
My mom has decided that we are now going to leave early Thursday morning instead of tomorrow because she doesn't want me sitting in a car for 5 hours since I'm sick....I would much rather leave tomorrow because now I feel like I have even less time to set up my dorm...but since arguing has not worked and I'm too tired to really care anymore...I'm not going to continue fighting with her....I guess it just gives me more time to pack anyway....

I have packed pretty much everything except what's in my closet...which are my pants and skirts and shoes.....but honestly...I know that I'm not going to have enough room for everything I packed...I literally took all my clothes in all my drawers...and the drawer and closet space in my dorm is about half the size of my room....but I have storage bins where I'm gonna keep some of the stuff but still....

I have all my picture frames set up with pics of everyone in them...I have my stuff packed that I'm gonna decorate my room with....posters...Derek Jeter doll...one is staying at home...the other is going with me....I still have to pack away all my makeup...that should be fun....

I'm gonna go take a nap now.....this cough medicine is making me sleepy....

When will I see you again? When will our hearts be together? Are we in love or just friends?
Is this my beginning or is this my end?

Hmmm....I'm gonna go backwards with this entry....then fowards...then backwards again....just to let whoever is reading this know....cause it might tend to get confusing......

I've been in such a blah mood lately...maybe partly cause I'm sick...which totally sucks....cause I'm leaving Wednesday and I have a stomach virus and a sore throat....and classes start a week from today....great....just great...I've been feeling shitty this past week...and I've been taking medication but it's done absolutely nothing....anyways...here is recap of my week....starting with Sat....

I went with my dad to get little things that I still need to bring with me...I picked up some boxes from Ann Taylor that they had in the stock room that they weren't using so that I could use them to pack my stuff in....I got makeup from the hair salon that I buy it from in Hewlett....I went to the flea market in Levittown to get hair care products....and to see if they had any of the movie posters that I've been looking for to decorate my dorm with....they didn't have any of the ones that I had originally wanted...but they had this cool "I Love Lucy" poster with the scene from the chocolate factory episode....so I got that...and I love it....then at night...I went out with Steve for the last time....he took me to George Martin in RVC....it was so nice....and then he had gotten me the "Sex and the City" Season 2 set on DVD so we went back to my house to watch it....I realize now how much I'm gonna miss him....but we pretty much decided that a long distance relationship wouldn't work for various reasons...and that I need to experience things in college...we're just at different places in our lives....but realizing this...and talking about it was very hard....at the same time we said we'd of course keep in touch and he'd visit....but I know it won't be the same....it was very hard when he left....I called Sara right afterwards and just cried about everything....not just about Steve...but about leaving everyone....in so many ways...I'm just not ready to go.....

Yesterday....I did some more shopping....went to Green Acres....cause my cousin told me that Suncoast Video there had the "Dirty Dancing" movie poster I wanted for my room....and they did....so I was happy...and I got a new Derek Jeter poster for my room too.....don't really think I'm gonna have much room on my walls left by the time I'm done hanging everything up.....went back to the Flea Market.....then out to dinner with everyone for the triple birthday celebration....Sara, Lara, Liz.....it was fun hanging out with everyone...even though we did have to wait like 3 hours for a table....and I think the cheesecake is what made me partially sick which I hate to admit cause I usually love their cheesecake.....I could swear our waiter was from Georgia even though he said he was from Bethpage....lol.....

So now to flip back all the way to the beginning of the week....last Monday night....I went to Mickey Mantle's in the city to shoot that commercial thingy with my family.....the actor guy in it....his name was Trey...told me he was gonna be on "Sex and the City" serving Samantha a drink in a few weeks...lol....it was fun being an extra....I tried to get in as many shots as possible in the background...hehe...and they gave us tons of free deserts and drinks...the guy playing the bartender in the commercial was like retarded...he couldn't even open up a beer for people...lol....hopefully you'll be able to see me on it....it's prob gonna be on the YES network in a few weeks.....

Tuesday...breakfast with Mrs. Senicola...and everyone....I love her....lol....she's so hilarious......I also finally got a cell phone.....I'm finally up on all the technology now....lol...for those of you who don't already know...my cell number is 707-5726...but pretty much everyone who reads this knows that already....I went to Kasey's for dinner with my mom...then out with Sara, Lara, Norbs, Sam, and Meg. C. in Meg's new car...love the smell of new cars...hehe....

Wednesday.....went to the high school very early in the morning with Jess, Al Jax, and Mo....to meet with Mrs. Senicola about establishing a scholarship for class officers at the high school in the following years....and it was Senicola's b-day so we all sang to her...lol....then I had my last day of work....awww...so sad....NOT!!!...I cannot stand the new boss there....she told me I had to give back my associate discount...but my other boss told me I could keep it....cause I'm prob gonna work there during the holidays....so I didn't have my credit card with me to take it off.....and she was like...."OOO...I trust you'll take it off"......ummm....ok....yeah right.....afterwards...went to Meg C's b-day party....Sara always seems to end up in the pool at parties....lol

Thursday.....so where were you when the blackout occurred??...that seemed to be the question on everyone's mind....want to know where I was?....at Ralph's buying ices...me and my mom just assumed it was RVC....then as we got into Baldwin...maybe just Baldwin...but hey...it was the whole Northeast....as Melody....my mom's friend from P.A. informed me when she called my house in hysterics...cause her husband works in the city....I picked up the phone...which we were only getting out-going calls on...cause we couldn't make phone calls on it...and she was like...."OMG!!! Are you ok??"....."I was like...."Yes....are you???"...lol....anyways....we couldn't get in touch with my dad who was in the city and we were worried that he was stuck in a subway cause he always takes them....but finally he called...and he was with his boss in a bar...he ended up having to stay with his boss in a hotel with no running water or air conditioning for the night...and when he tried to get back the next morning....cause he always parks his car in Long Island City...and takes the subway over....every cab was charging $200 to drive over the bridge....can you believe that??....what a rip!!! So his boss drove him over...and he got back the next morning...as for my mom and brother and me....we all sat in the kitchen all night watching the Miss Congeniality dvd on my laptop....with candles from my room all around us...I slept downstairs cause that was the coolest place in the house...but that wasn't saying much cause it was still hot as hell....and we only had two flashlights...one being on a keychain....thank G-d we got the power back the next day...I wouldn't have been able to live w/o air conditioning any longer.....

Friday...more shopping at Bed Bath and Beyond....then out at night with Lara, Sara, and Norbs....me and Lara saw "Uptown Girls"...Sara and Norbs saw "Grind"...."Uptown Girls" was good...I shed a tear at the end...as did Lara...lol.....

Today...went to the doctor again....got cough medicine and a new allergy medication...exciting....I know...I really hope I feel better tomorrow...cause I need to pack everything......ughhh vey!!!

If what you see is what you lack then selfless love will bring you back....
Haha...I'm entirely wayyyy too obsessed with Freaky Friday.....

So last night ended up going really well...me and Steve met Jess, Billy, Sara, Lara, and Norbs at the Olive Garden...I was nervous at first I must admit....but everyone was on their best behavior...lol....and I really did have fun...and Steve thought everyone was really cool...I mean I'm sure it must have been a bit awkward for him...as it was for me the other night with his friends...but ya know it's always gonna be that way when you're meeting someone else's friends for the first time...but he was nice and sweet as usual....and everyone was good....I told him beforehand that we all get a little immature sometimes....lol...but thats the charm and uniqueness of us all....we're not afraid to have fun....and he totally gets that about me...and now he knows how loud I can really get...lol....so I'm glad he got to see that side of me....when we finished dinner....me and Steve went back to my house...def did not realize that everyone was following us on the way home...lol...but whatev....its all good....

Today...I went to the Yankee game with Sara, my dad, and brother....it was fun...although the Yanks lost 8-6....but my baby hit a homer!!! AAAHHH...he's so good....hehe....Sara...the guy in front of us with the peanut-shell on his back....and the woman dancing....LOL!!

Memories.....of the way we were.....
Hmmm...I just read Lara's entry and I know exactly how she feels....a few months ago I couldn't wait to go to college...but now that I'm leaving in 12 days...I'm not as enthusiastic as I once was...I guess part of the enthusiasism a few months ago was due to the fact that I couldn't wait to get out of Baldwin High School...to leave all the high school drama behind...and the schoolwork...and all that crap...but now....when I think about how in a few weeks...I will have all of this work to do again...and all of this other stuff to deal with...it really scares me...I mean....besides going to travel camp and being away from home for a few days at a time...I've never been away for an extended period of time before...and I have to admit...I don't do anything for myself...I am spoiled in many ways although I hate to admit that....I make my bed occasionally....otherwise my mom does it....my mom does my laundry...I have never ever done it before...I don't really do anything for myself...which is why now I wish I was more self-sufficient...and I know little things like this will be a big adjustment for me....and then there is the whole issue of meeting new people...I love meeting new people...I really do...and I met some really cool people at orientation that I talk to all the time online...but I still wonder if I will ever be able to have the kind of relationship with them that I have with my friends now...I love my friends...I can laugh hysterically with them for hours over absolutely nothing...over little inside jokes that no one else would get...."Excuse me deary...let an old woman through!!"...lol..."Give me my bacon bitch!!"....I wonder if I will ever have jokes like these with the people I'm gonna meet in college....at the same time...I am excited to be on my own....the curfews my parents instill...my mom's consistant nagging about everything...I won't miss that...but I will miss my family....I just have very mixed feelings about everything....I just received this whole Welcome Week event schedule for the first week of school...and there are a lot of cool events that they have planned which seem like fun....I guess I'm just nervous....that's all...but I think everything will end up turning out good...

Today I picked up some little things that I needed for school...I went to National Liquidators with my mom...lol...got two picture albums...make-up applicator pads...and hair clips...I saw Al Jax...she heard me talking from a few aisles away...haha...my voice does project....I still can't find that long picture frame that I want with like 20 picture slots...all of the ones I've seen only have like 5...and the space to put the pic in is too small....then I went with my mom to look for a new dishwasher...because the new one has to be removed because it's leaking and doesn't work properly....I went to my cousin's house to go visit her...cause she just got a nose job...she's not too badly swollen...which is good...and you can already see an improvement in her profile...then I went to Sunrise Mall...Macy's...where I got a really nice Fossil messanger bag for school..and a beaded necklace.....

OOOO...I forgot to mention how much I love the keychain that Lara got me from her trip with my name on it....she got one for all the Hollereras....so sweet!!!

It feels like something's heating up...can I leave wit u??
Ok...so going in reverse.....Tuesday night...I worked from like 5-10:30ish...always fun....not!! I taped "The OC" and watched it when I got home...it's my new fav show!!! It is the new 90210 for today's generation...I love love loved it!!! Everyone was so snobby and rich and mean to each other....soo good!!...hehe....

Then yesterday....in the afternoon since I was bored out of my mind and sick of watching the soaps...I started my prom/graduation scrapbook album which is coming along nicely so far....so that's one thing I can almost scratch off my list of things to do before I leave for school.....

Then at night...I went out to dinner with Steve and his friends Lauren and Ben at PF Chang's.....although most of you have already heard bits and pieces of the story...here it is in its entirety....I knew that Lauren was coming out to dinner with us cause Steve asked if she could come when we talked the other night....cause he said she wanted to meet me...so I was like...Ok...whatev....but when we got there...their friend Ben also came...Lauren and Ben live together...they're not dating...they're just really good friends....so anyways...we get there...and they're at the bar waiting for us....so then they're both like to me...do you want anything??...I found this a bit odd...just because Ben is a police officer...so I was thinking....it's kinda weird he's offering to get me a drink...but I wasn't exactly in the mood to drink at 7:30 at night...so I was like...no thanks...so we get to the table...and decide what to order....and blah...blah...blah....and then they all start talking about people they all know since they all are friends from high school...and I was like kinda zoning out in my own little world...cause I had no idea what they were talking about...so then his friend Lauren....who might I add....looks EXACTLY like Avery on Felicity...omg....talks and acts just like her too....so she says to me....oooo...I know how you feel...it's been weird for me too when I've gone out with my boyfriend's friends for the first time...and I'm thinkng....Great...that's nice...way to break the ice...I mean she was trying to be nice and she asked me about my major in college and stuff...but I was just uncomfortable...so then they're asking me more questions and stuff...and they're talking about their jobs...Lauren is a high school English teacher at Mepham.....hmmm...this was weird to say the least...in many ways I felt like I was out with my teachers.....ya know...like the time we saw Pederson and Onufrock and Terranova at the bar in RVC...it would have been cool if they had invited us into the bar that night...but at the same time it would have prob ended up being very strange...this is how I felt....and see Steve...he pretty much looks like he's my age....maybe a bit older.... but his friends like look like they're 23 and 24.....ya know...just that to me...was weird...I felt like a little kid...I mean dinner got better as the night went on...but it was just very different...when both of them went out for a smoke...Steve was like...ooo...how do you like my friends...and I'm like....yeah...they're really cool...and I was like...It's just different...I was like...when I go out with my friends we're just immature and have fun in different ways....ya know...and he was like well...we're immature...and I was like...no....but it's a different kind of immature....and it really is...so anyways...as we're ready to leave....omg....why am I such a klutz...I'm sliding out of the booth....and I fall on the floor on my ass!!! Could it have gotten any worse??? Why am I so accident-pron??? Why???!!! I got right up though and laughed it off....Ahahahah!! Whatev....no biggy...I was like...I always fall...which I do...for those of you who remember that infamous sliding across the hall incident when someone ran into me at my locker...and I was hysterically laughing!!!

So anyways...after dinner...we went back to Ben and Lauren's apartment in Valley Stream...which isn't exactly an apartment...it's a two-family house and they live in the upstairs part....it was really nice though...and we ended up watching this Chris Rock HBO special from a while ago that Steve brought home....pretty much everyone else knows what happened after this...so no need to go on any further....I mean the night wasn't a total disaster....it got better as time went on...and his friends turned out to be pretty cool....but it was odd...and I was incredibly nervous the whole night....

Woo Woo Yankees!!!
Ok...I'm gonna go backwards starting with today.....this morning I woke up Lara and Jessica...hehe....that makes it 4 people in the last 4 days....cause on Monday I woke up the guy we met in Las Vegas...Brian...cause I saw his number was still in Sara's cell phone and I called him at Jess'...he didn't pick up but then he called back....and was like in a deep southern voice...."Y'all woke me up"...at first he said he didn't remember us....and then he was like...."OOO...Y'all stayed at the Aladdin!"....and I was like....yeah....haha...don't really know why I called him though....lol....then on Tuesday I woke up Alison....this morning I called Jess to remind her to pick us up to see Freaky Friday....and I sang her a little wake-up song....haha....me, Sara, Jess, and Al Jax went to see it in Baldwin today in the afternoon.....omg...it was soooo good....I'm not even kidding...it was more than cute...I laughed...I cried....it's my new favorite movie...haha...Lara you should have come!!!

Then when I got home....I got ready for the Yankee charity dinner that I went to with my family tonight...this is the 3rd one I've gone to....it's run by the Yankees and their wives...and it benefits Sudden Infant Death Syndrome Charities and Diabetes Charities...we get invited to go because my dad is friends with the manager at Mickey Mantle's where the event takes place....it was sooo awesome...I met Jeff Nelson....a Yankee relief pitcher...and me and my brother took a pic with him.....omg...my mom was trying to take the pic with my dad's camera and she couldn't do it right...and we were posing for like 10 min with him...and me and my brother were like..."Mom...come on!!"....and finally my dad took the camera away from her and took the pic himself...lol...Jeff thought it was funny.....and then I met Sterling Hitchcock...Mike Mussina....Susan Waldmen...who is on the YES network.....she's the Yankee's personal reporter and does all of the interviews with them...and I talked to her about how I could get an internship with the Yankee radio station and she told me how to apply...she was so nice....Jason Giambi was there for a little while....but he left to film a Sega commercial....but I met him last year...and David Wells who I also met last year wasn't there cause he was at the Bon Jovi concert...but my dad's friend told us that Jon Bon Jovi had come into the restaurant during the afternoon...and I was like OMG!!!....I would have died if I saw him...you have to admit for a 40-year-old guy he's damn good-looking.....and also Kevin Costner was right outside of the restaurant earlier too...he was staying at the Plaza...which is around the corner...I also got to talk to Sterling Hitchcock's wife.....who was going around with baseballs...they have this thing...where you buy a chip for $100...and then the wives go around with a bag full of signed baseballs and you give them a chip and then you pick out of the bag...my dad got two...my mom picked the first one...Ruben Sierra...and I picked the second...Alfonsio Soriano!!!! My dad was soooo happy...lol....cause those are worth a lot.....and I also got to meet Sterling Hitchcock's publicist and I told her that I am studying to be that in college and I asked her if she had any internships for college students...and she took down my name and number and told me if she needed help on some PR projects in the New York area she would call me!!! So it was a very exciting night....there were many hot young businessman guys there also....and the YES Network and NBC news were there...I just watched a thing about it on the news before...I tried walking behind people as they were being interviewed for YES to try to get in the shot...lol...but my dad's friend asked me and my brother if we wanted to be extras in a commercial they're filming at the restaurant on Monday for the YES network...so me and my brother are gonna do it....I'm very excited!!! Unfortunately Derek Jeter never comes to this event since he has his own charity....but one day we will meet eventually....hehe....

It's the remix to ignition....
Yesterday swimming in the afternoon at Jess Mart's house with Lara, Sara, Al Jax, and Norbs....and Domino's Pizza!! Sara and Jess having swimming races...Lara freaking out about an amiba on her sandal...and me and Sara almost breaking Jess' swing set....hehe....good times....

Last night...all of us plus Liz H. went to that thingy I got tix for in the mail a few weeks ago....at the Holiday Inn in RVC...it's like this thing where they have you preview a T.V. show and commercials and they ask your opinion on it and you could win free stuff....so I was excited about going...cause me and Sara did something like that in Las Vegas...and the show was pretty good...and everything was computerized and we got good free stuff....but this one wasn't exactly the same thing...haha...there were actually like mad amounts of people there...but the things we watched...two comediannes...who they then asked if they should get their own show...nope...didn't think so...commericials over and over again that sucked....and parts of two T.V. shows that seemed sort of fake....and the questions that we had to answer were like never-ending...and the free stuff.....a raffle for a $25 gift basket....wow...big spenders these people are....but none of us won anyways....lol....so let's just say it wasn't all that great...lol...afterwards we went to Ruby Tuesday's...then the beach which was extremely windy and cold....then the new 7/11 in Island Park....where we were the only ones in the store...and the people that worked there looked a little scary...then we went to 7/11 in Baldwin...where we saw some incredibly scary people from Baldwin who then like blocked Liz's car from getting out....ahhhhh...scary night yo.....

Hava Negliah.....
For anyone that doesn't know....these are the first words sung during the Horah...a traditional Jewish dance done at weddings and bar/bat mitvahs...why you ask am I writing about this??...no reason really...just cause I just got finished watching Sex and the City and on a clip from next week's episode...they showed Carrie's friend saying something about how nobody thinks she's a "Horah" for sleeping with the best man...cause they're all at Charlotte's Jewish wedding to Harry....hehe...it reminded me of Billy's little joke asking me if whores danced the Horah...haha...anyways tonight's episode was hilarious....Carrie almost getting arrested for smoking a blunt....last week's episode was priceless though...when Samantha's model boyfriend looks at the "Absolute Hunk" ad of him in Times Square and is all like "My dick is 3 feet long!"...and Samantha goes "Just the way G-d intended it to be!!"...haha...I've really become obsessed with that show....

Anyways...moving on...I'm at this present moment typing on my new Compaq Presario laptop that came on Thursday...it is quite cool....I feel so hi-tech now...I even set up AIM!!...which until now I never had cause I always used the regular AOL...wow...this all makes going to college feel so real now....17 days!!!...AHHHH...scary!!...it feels like yesterday that I was counting down the days till the last day of high school and graduation...and now only 17 more days left of summer??....Where has all the time gone??....Wow...I feel like Carrie Bradshaw right now asking one of those questions of life that sets up the whole episode....it's gonna take some getting used to typing on this...cause I'm used to typing on higher keys on the keyboard that a desktop has if that makes any sense to anyone...which I don't think it does...but whatev...my hand keeps hitting the mouse on the keyboard while I type...but I also have another detachable mouse attached to it cause I don't like mouses on the keyboard....

So last night...since no one was doing anything I decided to go out to dinner with the family...and my brother begggged my parents to take him to see "American Wedding"...I didn't really wanna go see it with all of them....cause it's not exactly a family film...lol...especially one that you'd want to sit through with your parents...but I went...it was soooo freakin funny...not better than the first one....cause I thought that was the best one out of all of them...but it was better than the second and hilarious...my mom said it was stupid but I know she secretly loved it...lol...cause she was hysterical throughout the whole movie...hehe....

Today I went to work at 1....but I was running late so when I got there I was all harried and rushing in...then when I get there...I find out that I wasn't scheduled to work today...I never checked the schedule...cause I just assumed I was working since they always have me work on Sundays...but my boss said I could stay if I wanted for a few hours...and I thought why not make some extra cash rather than sitting my ass on the couch and watching t.v. all day...they had me on the register the whole time so the day went pretty quick...I stayed till around 4....when I got home I watched that movie on the family channel that I missed when it was on a few weeks ago....Lucky 7....so predictable...but soooo cute!!

Steve had told me to call him when I got out of work but I originally thought that was gonna be around 7...so I called him a little before then...and he asked me to go to dinner with him at his friend's house cause she was having this little dinner party....but I thought that if we hung out tonight....we would just do something after dinner and alone....cause when I spoke to him yesterday that was the original plan...and my mom had already brought in food for me....so I told him I couldn't....I know...I know...I feel like this was kinda just another lame excuse to once again avoid meeting his friends....cause when he invited me to a party a few weeks ago at his friend's apartment...I also said I couldn't go....hmmmm...what's wrong with me??....ok...I feel another Carrie Bradshaw moment coming on.....anyways...I just honestly have no desire to meet his friends....I guess I'm just partially afraid we'll have nothing in common because they're so much older than me...I kinda feel like they'll be judging me...I know...that's so stupid to feel this way...but I do...I guess that it is this reason that has kept me from introducing Steve to my friends...I want them to meet him...I really do...but at the same time I feel like he won't have anything in common with them either...I know he def seemed pissed when I said I couldn't go...but honestly...he just sprung this on me now...he could have told me about it yesterday....and I feel like we'd be going there as a couple...and we're not....ughh...this again brings me back to that never-ending question of what exactly I want...I haven't seen Steve in over a week...cause I've been really busy this past week...and I really have missed hanging out with him....but I just didn't wanna go tonight...he told me to come anyway even if I had already eaten...but then I was like...well...I'm kinda tired...and blah...blah...blah....I'm so immature sometimes...why do I act this way??....why???

I feel like I still have so much to do before I leave for school and so little time to do it....I still have to put all my prom and grad pics in a scrapbook that I had wanted to make....I have to finish my summer reading book for my college writing class....I have to buy one of those picture frame things for my dorm that has enough space for like 20 pics...i have to buy an alarm clock....seems like little things...but not finishing them is gonna irk me until I do....and get this...this morning I got airline tix for Thanksgiving break so I can fly home...come home??...I haven't even left yet and I'm already making plans to come home....everything is all just so warped lately....ya know??

Me Need Food!!!
Omg...I am so freakin hungry right now!! I have not eaten all day!! I had work from 10-3...then when I got home...the guy who is installing our new dishwasher was still here....so all of the power in the kitchen is turned off so I can't cook anything...and the entire kitchen is like torn apart!! The guy has been here since like 11 this morning....ughhh....leave already!!!

So last night....after some drama....me, Billy, Liz, and P Lizzy went to the diner in RVC...then just drove around listening to my dad's disco mix c.d..."Yes, it's my last dance..last chance for love!"...."I Will Survive!!"...we decided that we would see American Wedding when Sara and Lara get back from their vacations...so tonight...hmmm....I wanna go out...but I dunno if that's gonna happen....

Inseparable.....that's what you are to me.....
American Idol concert last night...I must say that I wasn't all that excited to go...but once I got there....I got into it...lol...I must admit Clay was really good....but my girl Kim Locke kicked ass!! She truly has a rivetingly amazinggggg voice...and she should have won!!! Julia Dmato was still horendously badddd....so was Kim Caldwell....Carmen has gotten better...Ricky Smith was pretty good and Trenyce was good...but still looks quite scary....Ruben's new song was terrible...and as I said before Clay was good....but I still find him quite annoying...lol....Kim Locke sang all of the good songs she sang on the show...hope she gets a record deal cause she deserves it.....

Before the concert started...we saw Sam and Meg Don whose seats were on the floor but pretty close to us....me and Sara's seats were pretty good....right on the side of the stage....I would have loved it if those were my seats for the Justin-Christina concert which I presently at the moment don't have tix for but I do hope to get them soon....haha...in the middle of the concert me and Sara moved down like 3 rows....no one was freakin sitting in the seats and this asshole of a security guard tells us to show him our tix for the seats or get up...so we get up and move back to our regular seats and he's all like...."you don't belong here either"...and I'm like...."really??....then look at my ticket"....hehe....booyahhh!!

During the intermission...we saw Sam again....and she told us everything that was going to be sung in the exact order that it would be sung in...including Clay's new song...that girl is obsessed....and while Meg Don was in the bathroom some woman gave her a backstage pass.....haha...so they ended up meeting some of the idols...lol....and at the beginning of the concert Meg's feelings for American Idol had bordered on hatred...but she changed her tune...lol....

After the concert was over...me and Sara scored some free pop tarts that they were handing out cause Pop Tarts sponsored the show...we kept going over to different people to get more...then we waited at the Marriot for my mom to pick us up....hehe...all of these people were there waiting around thinking that the idols were staying there...I mean...they're cool and all...but they're no Justin Timberlake...me and Sara kept screaming out..."Look...there goes Clay!!"....haha...and then Sara was like..."Look...there's Kim Locke!!"....but I thought she was just kidding...but she really wasn't...it was her...but she walked by really quickly so I didn't really see....oh well.....

Today we were supposed to go to the city...but my mom's bitchiness coupled with the weather.....ruined my plans....and everyone didn't really wanna go anyways...cause of the weather.....except Liz....she was gonna wear her sexy outfit....aww...next week Liz.....so tonight...prob see American Wedding.....hehe...looks reallly funny!!

Happy Birthday Mommy!!!
Today es mi madre's cumpleanos....so feliz cumpleanos mama!!! Today my dad drove me and Sara into the city on his way to work....me and Sara went in to see if TRL was taping but they're at the beachhouse this week!!...as the guy in the building so rudely told us....lol....so then we went to see if we could get those $25 tix for "Hairspray" which they give out for the first three rows before the show starts through a raffle...we did it for "Rent" a few months ago and they ended up calling Sara's name...so we decided to try our luck but when we got there....unlike the raffle for "Rent"...the one for "Hairspray" is three hours before the show starts which was at 2....not 2 hours...so we got there an hour late....ooo...well...maybe next time....so we went for lunch at Ellen's Stardust Diner...which is next to the Wintergarden Theatre in Times Square...it's a 50's cafe where the waiters and waitresses sing...I go there all the time with my family...it's really cute....after we were done....we rode the elevator at the Marriot Marquis.....I'm always afraid to go all the way to the top...lol..and we devised our "Operation Poof" Plan...lol....you'll all see...haha.....

We also both bought one of those painted pics of Times Square...lol...my bargaining skills are sooooo goood!!!.....we were very touristy today.....haha....we walked over to Rockafeller Centre and decided to take the NBC Studio tour...which I've always wanted to do....on the way there this guy from the Carson Daly show stopped us and asked if we wanted tix for tonight's show...so we said hell yeahhh!! and we took them....haha...and the guy was hottt who gave us them....we then got tix for the studio tour...before we went on it Sara gave a little show to the people outside of the NBC store's window...haha..and we watched an obvious non-New Yorker try to hail a cab...lol...mad funny....anyways...the studio tour was really cool!!!...they show you the set of SNL, Last Call With Carson Daly, Dateline, NBC Nightly News, the control rooms for different shows, John Walsh, Conan...I think??...I don't remember...lol...ooo...and I saw the outside of Katie Couric's dressing room!! Haha.....and they also show this cute little film about NBC...and this high definition television thing at the end...and the guy giving the tour was sooo cute...we got into a nice little discussion about how he used to be an intern on the Conan O'Brien show...and how he wants to be a writer but they made him start out by giving tours....he was a Comm major at Fordam.....ooo...and I took a pic in the news seat that like Tom Brokaw sits in...hehe.....

Afterwards we went to Last Call w/ Carson....it's only a half hour show taping...it started at around 6ish....Dennis Leary and this music group....Palo Alto was on.....let me tell you something...the camera def adds 10 pounds....cause Carson is not the usual slub that he looks like he is when you watch him on T.V.....in person he is HOOOOTTTTT!!! The studio is really small...much smaller than it looks on t.v......only like 30 seats and they kinda surround the stage so you can see from all angles..we were in the 3rd row...it was actually really good...me and Sara laughed at like the most inappropriate times and made our voices heard when we laughed so you can hear us when you watch the show cause they don't really pan the audience with the camera like they do on TRL so you don't really see the audience.....Dennis Leary was really funny...the band was baddd though....haha...and at the beginning before they started taping when they first brought Carson out and intoduced him to everyone I was like...."Woo hooo Carson"...and he mimmicked me....lol.....believe me...me and Sara made our presence known...lol....it was really fun though...I wanna def go back...our show is gonna be on Aug. 5th...so everyone stay up and watch....it's on at 1:30 a.m.!!!

After it was over my dad picked us up and we went home listening to my dad's disco mix in the car....gotta love Donna Summers....lol.....for mi madre's b-day....my dad got the best cake from this bakery in the city...it was sooo good...and my mom likes the presents I got her.....so it was all good!!

Can't wait to go back to the city hopefully on Friday to visit Billy Bob Cockaceres!!!

I'm just trying to be me...doing what I gotta do.....
Today I went to the beach with Sara and her mom...we went to Lido...so it was a nice change of scenery....I actually got a tan cause I didn't put on any sunscreen on my face....I'm a little burnt but for the most part I actually have some color!!! Woo hooo!! Then I had work from 5-10:30...I have a new manager now...Thalia...don't exactly love her...she's like the first manager I had when I started working there....she's so anal about everything....the other managers couldn't really give two shits about most things....whatev....only a few more weeks to go...my last day is Aug. 14th.....

Hmmm....
Abby is the #694 most common female name.
0.016% of females in the US are named Abby.
Around 20400 US females are named Abby!
source namestatistics.com



See...and I would think that Abby would be more common than Abigail...because I have heard people with the name Abby much more than Abigail...especially on T.V.....there is Abby on ER....Abby on Dawson's Creek...well that was a while ago...Abby from On The Line...the movie with Lance and Joey from NSYNC....hmmm.....there are a few more Abby's on TV...just can't think of them at the moment....

Thanks for the memories......
Bob Hope died yesterday....I found this so sad...even though he did live to be 100.....he seemed like such an amazing person...always entertained the troops in the army in so many different wars.....he really seemed to have such an impact on people's lives.....I remember when I was little I used to watch the "I Love Lucy" episode with him...when Lucy pretends to be a hot dog vendor to get his attention...it was hilarious!!!...anyways....I was watching a special about him with my mom before on CBS....it was quite interesting......so many famous people have died in the past few weeks....it's scary but I think that thing about people dying in three's is really true.....

On a more upbeat note....I went shopping with my mom today again for more college stuff....got pillows to match my comforter....I got a pillow that's beige and has purple and brown flowers to go in the middle of the bed...with a purple and brown pillow to surround it which picks up the accented color of the flowers....very stylish I know...lol...but I still might go with my other look that I want....cheetah pillow...and a black pillow with rhinestones...I don't yet know which motif I want for my room....trendy yet girlish or trendy yet sophisticated...hmmm........decisions......decisions.....decisions.....ughhh gulvalt (Yiddish)!!! I've really been channeling my inner Jewish grandma lately...my inner aura.....haha......so Shalom everyone!!
