It wasn't nearly as easy to dance with Charlie. He was no better than I was, so we moved safely from side to side in a tiny square formation. Edward and Esme spun around us like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

So I hit my 100th post a few posts ago. I haven't done to commemorate it. I could share my most popular posts with you.

Equus Review
Full Moon
French Onion Dip
You're All I Have
My Junk

And there you go. I'm people watching in Central Park today with a friend. I LOVE people watching here. And especially in Central Park, because every nationality seems to walk around that park.

In My Head

So. I live in New York. Lots of celebrity sitings, right? Whats almost as cool? Think for 30 seconds you saw one :)

So I was in Dillon's Candy Bar the other day getting some giant jaw breakers also inquiring as to the whereabouts of certain Twilight Sweethearts. I walked around for a while, turned a corner and saw an English dude in a beany with messy blond hair. So for FIVE seconds I thought I saw Robert Pattinson. That was AWESOME!! Then I remembered he was in LA. And he probibly wouldn't go to Dillons Candy Bar.

But on an upside of celebrity sitings, I did see Susan Sarandon at the Cat Power concert.

And goodness, we're entering concert season again. It might be just as good as last season.

Those you've known

Random thoughts from JP at 1AM on a Saturday morning.

One thing that I'm really not OK with right now: June 30, 2010. Eclipse. What? It's going to SUCK!!! And I need the entirety of the Bella/Jacob punching scene, or I might be mad. It's clear now Summit is all about the revenue. I'm not sure I'm buying the "It's because HP #7 part 1 and 2 are coming out!" PS. Still worried about the Nov 20 release for New Moon. They haven't even started filming yet. But it's ok. Close to my birthday :)

Dude, I need an FYE so I can get my Sweethearts.

I CAN NOT WAIT til I get to see SA in Philadelphia in June. I'm DETERMINED to have stage seats. I may very well be taking my dad. But that's ok!! (PS. Current SA Obsession song of the week: Touch's SSSOOOOO good...currently on the side bar, have a listen!) And I walked by the Eugine O'Neill today for the first time since the show closed. It made me a little sad.

I finished East of Eden. What am I going to read now? I will not relapse!!! And, it was good.

I'm ready for spring. I'm SO tired of the brown jacket.

People being mad about Rent in high schools? How small minded.

In a week it'll almost be March. What? What have I done with my 2009 so far? Good question.

This podcast isn't too shabby either.

And that's all I have. I always wonder why I write posts late at night....they tend to be really honest.

Counting On Me

So, you know those little candy hearts from Valentines Day? AKA my favorite holiday candy? Well, turns out they're not just for Valentines Day, they're ALSO for New Moon Day!! Once again, merchandising a little over the top .....but I guess we do have tweens to keep the economy running. I mean, I can handle fun little candy hearts that say "I ♥ EC"

So, today, I got to spend some quality time with my little brother, and got the best advice ever. He came to a great realization. It goes a little something like this.

Don't ever say out loud "Who is stupid enough to do that?" out loud, because, upon thought, there is ALWAYS someone stupid enough to do that and they may be sitting right next to you.

Great advice. A few months ago, I'd read an article about how sexting (doing naughty things with your texts) is quite popular around high schools, so I told him about it. And they had a lecture about it this week in school, because it'd been happening at other high schools round the Lehigh Valley. He couldn't say out loud, due to the aformentioned revelation.

Your tip of the week :)

Hey, Shipwreck

OK, so I was chatting with my little brother this evening, and he told me my dad showed him a video about Twilight. "What? Dad was watching Twilight movies on YouTube?" Mike told me it was discussed in a series he watches frequently. And oh my goodness, it was REALLY funny. So enjoy. Twilight talk starts at 1:25. Enjoy. Robots talking about Twilight.

"Nothing says killer like freaking glitter!"

The Fallen

How funny. Franz Ferdinand is on the radio...and I'm about to tell you a story about falling.

But first!! So, as we all know from reading the blog, I'm more than obsessed with Spring Awakening. So I do listen to the soundtrack quite frequently. I have an undenying urge to sing to it. Not to dance yet, though. But anyways....I have another I feel like busting into song verse....and it is...and i usually have to lip sync it on the train........

But there's nowhere to hide from the ghost in my mind
It's cold in these bones of a man and a child
And there's no one who knows, and there's nowhere to go
There's no one to see who can see to my soul


So yesterday, I started off the morning terribly. I went and got on the train. The F train has two types of that can seat 7 people on each side and one that can sit 10 people. I like the 10 people trains...more turnover, more seats. But no, it's been the seven people trains lately (they do have heated seats when it's 10 degrees outside, which is delightful...but otherwise the trains SUCK!) . So I can position myself in the right place on the 10 person seats to get a seat in usually 4 stops. Not so much on the 7 people trains. So i position myself, and we get to the stop in brooklyn where everyone gets off, and a very annoying man swings around an elderly lady and plops down. Ah! I give him the evil stare that only New Yorkers can perfect when someone takes their seat on the train. He offers me his seat. No, idiot, I don't want it now that i know you're an idiot. Then there was a lady in an animal print coat. Which means one thing. She's very obnoxious, takes up the whole train and a Brooklyn or Queens native. Bad train ride. I had to stand next to her due to idiot.

So my faith in humanity was restored on the way home. I was reading my book (not rereading!!!) and this rather tall man sits down..and takes up my whole space. So I tip my book up, pretending to hit him, but lets face it, I meant to. He was actually nice, pulling out his accounting book. So redeeming for mean man. Then, it had snowed all day. I told my coworker I was going to fall on the way home. And I was walking home, and some kid was sliding down the wheel chair access ramp, so i walked up the slide. No, didnt make it. I slipped, landed on my side, and the kid apologized in 1/2 second and helped me up. Redeem #2.

There are nice people in this city. I'm not sure where they are. But 2 meanies were canceled out by 2 very nice people Somehow, I will survive these native New Yorkers.
