Gov. Corzine is going to shut down the NJ Film Commission in July. Last year $92 million was brought in through film. Without this money and the commission, what will happen next?

Save the NJ Film Commission. Save New Jersey.

I filmed this the other day.. It started out as pretty good quality, but I had to edit it using youtube's thing and that crapped it out. It's my Mom/the gagger, Aunt, and cousin's reaction to that damn movie.

Help protest the police inaction of investigating the murder of a transwoman in North Philadelphia [Jun. 1st, 2007|05:21 pm]

Help protest the police inaction of investigating the murder of a transwoman in North Philadelphia

Dear Friends,

I am writing to ask you to support work that I'm doing with the Justice 4 Erika campaign here in Philly. Erika Keels was murdered on March 22, 2007 on North Broad Street in Philadelphia. Witnesses saw an assailant eject Erika, a 20-year-old black transwoman, from his car, and intentionally run her over four times, killing her and leaving the scene. A medical examiner's report supports these eyewitness accounts. But police ruled Erika's death an accident and have refused to conduct an investigation. The driver, Roland Button, was later apprehended, but he has yet to face criminal charges—including "hit and run" charges. When Ms. Keels' friends, who are themselves trans, questioned police officials about the classification of her death as an accident, they were asked to disclose their "birth" names and told they were "trying to make something out of nothing."

Our immediate goal is for the Philadelphia Police Commissioner and the Accident Investigation Division to reopen Erika's case and conduct a thorough investigation of the circumstances surrounding her death. We want to send a powerful message to the Philadelphia Police Department that we stand together to demand justice for trans and gender non-conforming people, police accountability, and respect for the inherent dignity and worth of every person. Things you can do to help:

1. Sign our community support letter (read below and sign at http://www.petitiononline.com/ErikaK/petition.html).

2. Get organizational sign-ons from groups you're in or connected to. (Organizations should email Justice4Erika@gmail.com to confirm their support.)

3. Come to the Justice 4 Erika demonstration on Thursday, June 14 at noon @ 6th and Arch in Center City Philadelphia.

4. Sign up for weekly email updates on the campaign (email Justice4Erika@gmail.com)

5. SPREAD THE WORD.

some serious re-re going on [Feb. 6th, 2007|11:11 pm]

So, I realized today either people need to wear glasses or they need to check themselves. In my Sex: Power, Pleasure and Politics class we were looking at some slides. Teach puts up this slide: http://www.facade.com/celebrity/photo/Audrey_Hepburn.jpg and this girl was like, "Oh, I love Lucy". Um.. WHAT?

Then the teacher shows us another slide: http://imagecache2.allposters.com/images/pic/DES/D574~Marilyn-Monroe-New-U-Posters.jpg and then she said, "Oh, Madonna". SERIOUSLY? You're in your twenties. From the USA.. From planet Earth even! You don't seem like you have been in a cult for the past 20 years. WHAT THE FUCK?

Thank goodness it wasn't one of the Media classes because then I would have had to seriously leave the room because I would have laughed my ass off.

Jeszue.

Last night I got a $58 parking ticket.

I wonder though.. Should I fight it? Reason being there was a sign that said "No Street Parking" in an area that is totally impossible to find parking. Why does it matter? Especially since it was a dead-end type block. It doesn't!

Anyway, it said "No Street Parking" etc.. I keep thinking though, I wasn't parked on the street, I was parked on grass that was near the street.. The grass certainly isn't the street. The grass is the property of my friends house. This whole thing is questionable. I wasn't in the street. I was half on grass and half in the driveway of the friends house. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. This does confirm the fact that these cops are totally assholes.

In other news school has officially started and I found out yet another fun fact. Since I picked a minor I had a whole other planning sheet to go off.. So I took like 583958958984 classes I didn't need to take. YAY! I also just finished my first paper of the semester and it has so many free flowing thoughts in it that I never finished. My brain doesn't want to function academically.

family time is for suckers [Jan. 7th, 2007|10:52 am]
shawn
[Current Mood |irritatedirritated]

I know this is a lot of complaining about someone complaining--but I need to fucking vent this shit out because it really fucked me up.

Yesterday my Mom, Aunt Tique and cousin Eric went shopping then dinner. Sounds like a nice family day out, right? WRONG. Seriously, I was on the verge of tears because of how annoyed and frustrated I was. It will be a day I won't forget for a long time and I don't think I could hang out with my cousin for a long time after it.

We went to Kohl's and it was okay. My Aunt and Eric out of the house? Yeah, it was 72 degrees in Jersey for a reason--Thank them because it's a miracle they went out. Anyway! Kohl's was okay.. until we were about to leave. This is the turning point and had I known I would have put the pedal to the metal in my shitty car. Shitty you ask? Explainations later.

My cousin has a slight case of h-pylori. My Mom has a severe case of it. You have to take certain meds and eat certain foods--one of which is not pork which my Aunt fed him the night before. Why? Because people like to live dangerously. So, because of that before we leave Kohl's his stomach starts to act up and he runs off to the bathroom. Which is fine. I don't care because I know how it is.

Then we get to Olive Garden which was an hour wait. Psh, mere minutes compared to what my friends and I have waited in the past. Because we are all hungry we decide to wait. I had to explain to my Aunt very slowly that it was Saturday night and that ALL places would be like this. "Can't we go somewhere close by?" All places are like this.. It's Saturday. "Can't we go somewhere in Bayonne?" All places are like this. "Can't we go somewhere on Broadway?" A-L-L. It's Saturday! Sorry the last time you went out people still carried around clubs and wore animal pelts. And even though it was slightly annoying.. It was fine. Until my cousin started complaining about waiting that long. It never ended for the whole hour sitting there. Even when this hot girl next to me was talking about how she has sex--I couldn't listen because of him. Then he ran off to the bathroom. Finally a break!

When he returns from the bathroom his pants are totally undone. I wish I could have seen my face because I know I must have done some type of look. Though I wanted to say something I just kept it to myself. But if you happen to have been at Olive Garden and saw a 21 year old dude walking around with his pants undone and his belt flopping around--Hi! That was my cousin. Don't think he is a big weirdo or anything.

So, the complaining does. not. end. Him running back and forth to the bathroom does. not. end. Him telling us he couldn't go to the bathroom does. not. end. Him complaining about it, the wait, his stomach pains, how his mother dragged him out of the house, about me talking about global warming, and the color blue does. not. end. My Mom was like.. Eric, it's just gas. Calm down. Then she went to explain about other shit and that he really is a pussy. Just when I was about to call it all off they rang for us to come in and I could already taste the chicken marsala! I thought once we got him in there and settled to eat something everything would be fine. WRONG.

Now we have to find him something to eat.. It was easier to find Saddam Hussein running around in the desert than it was to find this kid a fucking bite to eat. I simply suggested that he have chicken marsala without the sauce. Chicken and potatoes people.. He just made the most annoying sigh and face and then shook his head. So, I was done I wasn't going to baby this bitch. My Aunt went through the whole menu four times and my Mom just sipped her pepsi to herself. Well, my Aunt was suggesting some off the wall shit and then my Mom finally suggested some grilled dish--which would have been fine too. All of the sudden he has some outburst at the table and states he'll eat at home. FINE. I totally could not stand another minute of it and just went off. I told my Mom not to suggest anything that he didn't want to eat and then I told my Aunt the same thing. Just so we didn't have to hear anything more. Well, everything should have been fine after that. Except my cousin then gives me attitude saying I was trying to force him to eat too. That I was suggesting all this food. I was like, "I just told you about one thing. They keep going on about it." And all the while he just kept repeating "you too! you too! you too!" I swear to God.. had we not been sitting on opposite sides of the table I seriously would have punched the shit out of his face. And even though I contained myself that much.. I did manage to say "Fuck You!" Which surprised the hell out of everyone at the table.. Good. I'm glad I got my point across.

Once I said the big F-U I had a meltdown and told the table how stressed I was. Frustrated. Annoyed. And no longer had any type of appetite. That I wanted to leave. Of course they all said "No." You know though, I find it funny when people who didn't drive or don't drive or whatever the case may be tell YOU, the driver, they aren't leaving. Bitch if you ain't in the car when I pull away--then you ain't in the car! But I knew my Mom wanted to eat so I just said whatever. I was hungry too, I'll admit, but I seriously couldn't stand to be there.

So the ordering takes place and it turns into this huge circus because Eric can't eat anything. After a minute or two the fucking chef of Olive Garden comes out to the table to ask what we wanted. Who knew they even had real chefs, but it's good to know. Also, guess what the chef suggested to him to eat? Chicken Marsala--minus the sauce. WHAT. THE. FUCK!?!! And he happily agrees. We could have saved all this trouble if big head fucking listened to me in the first place.

Then the drinks come and he is complaining about his iced tea and how it sucks. Then how he is just going to take the food home. How he can't eat. Then he runs to the bathroom 5 times.. coming back each time with his pants UNDONE for the whole place to see. Then the food comes, the food he didn't want. The food he was going to wrap up to take home and eat there--for some reason. The food is there one minute and gone the next. This bitch inhaled the food like that. All the while my Aunt told him to eat slow because it'll just upset his stomach more. Did he listen? No. Of course not. So the complaining stopped for a minute while he ate and as soon as he finished started up again. I couldn't even enjoy my fucking meal. Afterwards my Mom asks about dessert and I didn't want any--which I stated. She gets her dessert and it was something I never tried and you know people always take a taste of something new. So, I took the tiniest taste and I didn't like it and said so. My cousin was like, "Then why did you eat it?" Bitch, had I known it tasted like shit I WOULDN'T have. That is the point of TRYING something. "I thought you didn't want dessert." I wanted to throw a fucking fork in his eye. I told him I didn't want dessert, but it was just a taste so don't worry about it. I also said you didn't want dinner, but you fucking sucked it down. "Well, people have a change of heart." was his reply and I said Exactly.. I had a change of heart just like you did and wanted to try the cake. Is that all right with you?

I could not get out of that place quicker. Then on the way home I stopped at Old Navy and it was 9:32. I just wanted to see if they were open--which they weren't. BUT the fucking complaining opened up again. "What are you doing? Where are we going?" The plan in the first place was to go to Kohl's, eat dinner, then go to Old Navy. Did you forget?

Then when we are about home my Aunt--Who wasn't very annoying today except when she was babying fuck head starts to complain about my car. Bitch, you don't have a car and you should be happy I am driving you somewhere in it. There is a turn on 440 South that the pavement makes a weird noise when you drive over it and she was saying how my car sucks. She hates sitting in the back seat--Let me move over then so you could sit on the drivers seat then. How the back seats are high up in the car. It's scary. She could see everything. It's scary. It's bumpy. It's scary. It's uncomfortable. Saying I should try sitting in the back seat to see how it feels. Okay, how do you suggest I drive then, asshole?

This is New Jersey. THE ROADS ARE BUMPY! This is a truck. IT'S HIGH UP! What. The. Fuck.

That was the straw that broke the camels back because just before we got home I let them know exactly what I thought. I told my Aunt she should be happy to even be in the car that took her somewhere. I also told the both of them, especially Eric, how it was the most frustating, annoying, agrivated time I have ever spent in my life and that I will never take the both of them out ever again. Then these mother fuckers acted like they had not a clue why I was saying this all. "Why?" My cousin asked, "I didn't do anything?" You complained the whole time! "No, I didn't!" I have never heard anyone complain more and I live with Mike who complains about every tiny thing. Then they were saying how they didn't complain and got all huffy before leaving to go to their house. Even my Mom was saying how she had an awful time and she never says that shit to peoples faces!

Once it was all over and I was home with my Mom I had to talk with her about how stressed I was. She couldn't believe how the day turned out and declared she too would never invite the both of them out again. That Eric could just stay home if that is going to be the case, which is sad in one hand and good in another. I also know that he will never forget this and never let any of us forget it! He'll always make references to it for the rest of his life just like he makes them about shit that happened when we were like 7.

What I'm really waiting for is my Aunt to come downstairs to ask why I felt like that, why I said fuck you to Eric, why I had an outburst..

This post does not do the day justice because I simply could not write what he was saying. It was most ridiculous and made me want to cry! I know it isn't over either which is another sad thing. I really don't think I could see my cousin though for like a month because I'll just have to go crazy on his ass.

And once I got back from the movies with Kevin and Ro, I was still stressed. I smoked a half of joint and two bowls from the bong which is alot for me in a short amount of time. It was like the first time I just felt like I REALLY needed to smoke. Oh well..

Fuckin cock-assss!

Though the semester is almost over and everything seems to be moving along well, I can't help but to feel really depressed.

I'm finally going to be starting T after waiting all this time. I'm really excited about it, but when asked I'm just like "who cares?" for some odd reason.. Like I can't tell people that I'm happy. In my head part of me is happy and can't wait, but that isn't how I'm presenting it to the rest of the world. I just feel really mad and on the verge of tears all the time.

Also I'm having a situation with people. When I'm alone I really want to be with certain people/friends. So, then when I'm actually with those said people this feeling comes over me and I feel like I can't stand to be in the same room with them. I don't know why. Then as soon as I leave/those people leave I feel even more down, mad, teary eyed and in need of company.

It's really stressful and I'm sick of it.

This weekened has been a busy one.. clubs, Thanksgiving, movies, Lisa Lampanelli, and hanging out. I told myself I would do lots of homework because December is upon us, but I didn't get shat done. I have a 3-5 minute film due Dec 18th and I am scared. I am working on the story board now and I hope it comes out okay.. Though I do have the help of a graduate. Yay. For whatever reason I think I may put some stop animation in there to make my life more of a hell.

Anyhoo..


Saturday was one of the best times ever. I saw Lisa Lampanelli do stand-up at Bananas with Elena. We got there very early and got such great seats! Our eyes met numerous times and I am not ashamed to say that it made me tingle! The highlight for me though was when she was looking in the audience and said, "EY! We got Jack Osbourne here!" I just remember laughing. I actually just had to ask Elena what she did and said because my mind totally went blank. After the show I got her autographed cd and a picture with her. As soon as she saw me she was like, "Hey Jack Osbourne!" More tingles. I will have to see her again on her next tour.

Update on the girl who called my house at 7:50AM:

hey love
yes i called you because i was at school and wanted to see you
but by the time i got there
you called my house and it was too late

:(

next time, k?

=]


I have class 4PM on Tues. I don't see the connection, but I guess it was a nice gesture?

Now for a real journal post/rant:

People that work for NJCU don't know a shitting thing! You ask them a question and they send you all over the place OR they give you wrong information. It took me 4 buildings to find someone to answer a simple question and the person that answered my question was someone working for work study. They weren't trained in the area, etc. How sad NJCU.. HOW SAD!

If all my questions were answered correctly and such, I'll be graduating December 2008 and walking in May with a Major in Media and a Minor in Women and Gender Studies. I. Can't. Wait.

Don't read if you don't like TMI, but who doesn't?


Well, since I was told I had PCOS by the doctor that was supposed to prescribe me T--I had to get a second opinion by a specialist. Which is what I did today. I ventured over to the endocrinologist and I think it was worse than my first visit to the OBGYN. She is an older woman from.. I think Poland/Russia? I don't know. Anyway, I told her I have GID because that is how I found out I have PCOS [Yay for initials]. So after an awkward talk we get into the examination room.. This is where the awkwardness, the thing I spoke about before, REALLY begins.

She told me to get completely undressed behind this curtain. In which I questioned "....Naked?". I take one look at this curtain and wondered where the fuck the material was to it. It was completely see through! What was the point of it even being there? Especially with the upcoming events. So, I get my things off.. but can't bring myself to go all the way. I kept my underwear on and venture out in my paper gown. Once I'm up on the table she pokes and prods around, nothing major. Yeah, nothing major until she tells me to lie down onto my back. I totally wasn't expecting it, but all of the sudden this little 5 foot silver haired woman turned into Hulk Hogan and tore the paper gown down the middle. I could only imagine the look on my face. Without even a moment to register what she had done, her hands were squeezing on my chest and then down to my stomach. I felt like.. I can't even. I'm sure I was bright red though. Then she asked about my legs and when I shave them.. Which is never. She also asked if I played sports and all that because I'm muscular on top. At that moment she stops and I think to myself--what a wonderful world.. because it's over! Nope. I was wrong.

"Would you mind if I looked at your clitoris?"

I just looked at the ceiling and babbled some sort of reply of, "NO!Ye--um.. LKJlkfjosiduoieurkJ#@?!1?" In my head I'm just like WHAT?! No dinner/movie first? I sucked it up though because this was the reason I was here in the first place. To get checked. WHICH I WAS x 48484889359. So, I slip the last of my clothing off and she went to work without a seconds hesitation. Then finally.. FINALLY it came to an end and she said I could get dressed. When I got off the table, I thanked her as if this were some cheap high school date and then realized my gown was totally in all sorts of pieces. I tried my hardest to hold the shreds to my naked body as I slinked around her to run behind the clear curtain of modesty. I was then relieved of that curtain all though it was a piece of shit.

Once it was all over.. I got the diagnosis and she said I have PCOS. The good thing is though that they no longer treat it was estrogen and birth control, but rather something for this in particular. But now I'll get regular periods and all that lovely stuff and no T for the time being. Sigh..

Picture it.. 7:50AM. You are sleeping in your nice big bed and all of the sudden your phone rings waking you out of a sound sleep.

It was a total WTF moment when I saw who it was.

This girl from school who I see once in a while. I met her in Intro to Gay and Lesbian Studies in Fall 2005. First off, it's 7:50AM. It's this girl I hardly know.. So of course I'm like shaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat and click the button to shut off the call. Then another call at 9AM and then a page at 9:01AM. Finally I shut off my ringer because I didn't have to be up till 12-1PM and I wasn't having it. None of it!

I really thought it was a dream at first. There are only a few.. and I stress a FEW select people who could call me at such an hour and expect me to pick up. Unless you are dying on my door step or something.. leave a message because I will listen to it in my sleep. But she didn't leave anything. So, finally when I was up and ready I called the bitch back and she wasn't home. OH WELL. I really don't know what to even think.. Calling someone you really don't know all that well at such a time? I'm going to give her a copy of Emily Post's Etiquette.

Went to see The Departed tonight and I loved it. Two thumbs and a dildo up says Segal. Of course I might biased because of my Jackie Boy Nicholson being in it.. My opinion of Leo DiCaprio has totally changed for the better. I feel like this is one of the better movies I've seen in such a long time. I can't even remember the last that I saw that I could say that. Oh well--go see it!

These past few days have been a hell.. I had a fever of 102 and haven't felt so sick in years. I actually had to call my Mom at 7AM on the phone, who was sleeping in the next room, to bring me something so I could throw up. If I got up from the bed, which I couldn't even do it, that would have been that.

So, because of that I've been out of school. What a false blessing because we were learning all about this camera we'll be using to make these movies. Womp-Waaa. I need to contact the professor about that. Hopefully she'll let me meet her.. She is new to the school and so I really don't know how she is yet. For all I know she could be a big ol' bitch.

But this sickness has given me a chance to watch countless reruns of Three's Company. Sorry to say Chrissy/Suzanne Summers I like Terri/Priscilla Barnes better.

In other news the Project Runway Season 3 Reunion Special is on tonight and this is going to make my week! This show is my guilty pleasure and I don't care who knows it. Ya mean?

Day two of UPS and already I have problems.


When I applied it asked for Nicknames/Any other name you go by. Of course I put Shawn because it isn't legally changed yet. I met this woman Karen who hired me and she was more than happy to call me Shawn. I explained to her why this was and she seemed excited. She was genuinely a nice person. Yesterday she took me aside and told me the location of a uni-sex bathroom so I'd be comfortable. She showed me the roster with my name as Mostafa, Sherene (Shawn) so people would call me that. All yesterday she and everyone else called me Shawn, it was really nice and comfortable. Even the supervisor was calling me Shawn. Today Karen had her day off and that's when it all went down hill. During role call they said Sherene about a million and one times. The first time it happened I said Shawn and the girl got up out of her seat and left the room. I then hear her saying, "Sherene.. she was like 'Shawn' HAHAHAHAH!" I was just like--okay? Thank you. You fucking cunt.

Then we were standing in line to get our picture i.d's taken and again I get Sherene. I just said 'Shawn' and the supervisor--who I pieced together is the person the girl ran to-ran into the room and yelled "Put HER name down as SHERENE on HER i.d." I really got annoyed and upset because I could feel all eyes on me since yesterday I was Shawn the He. Today I'm Sherene the IT/SHE.

After 4 hours of being so uncomfortable and hearing the name like nails on a chalk board.. When we were leaving and the supervisor was all alone, I asked her nicely to change. I didn't go into detail because I was just really on edge and upset already.

Me: Hi, would it be too much trouble if you could please just call me--
Her: No, I don't call anyone by their nicknames. What people call you out there is what they call you out there. In here we call you your legal name. I sign the checks and that is what is on your check.
Me: It isn't a nickname. I am getting it changed to it because--.
Her: Well, when you get it changed and over with you can come to me. We had a man change his name and he had to wait it out.

I was just so angered I said thank you, turned and left. Seriously bitch.. Let a fucking person finish their damn sentences. I for the life of me wanted to just punch myself for not just telling her WTF was up, but seriously I just had no energy since I've been up since 8AM and it was 12:30AM when I spoke to her at the end of the shift. I then called my Mom while she was at work and told her what was up.. Which didn't help the matter at all. Nope.

I wasn't asking them to change my records or my name on anything.. just when they visibly see me or speak to me.. to call me Shawn. Is that so wrong or hard?

So from a small get together my little fiesta has turned into thirty-two people. 32! Those are just the ones that RSVPed! It is possible more people, who didn't say if they are coming or not, will show up. I'm scared.

It's also raining so that means I might have to host this party in my home. Whatta tight squeeze this'll be. I'm scared.

But don't I feel loved?

..Now to clean. Oof! Anyone want to help?

Bah.


Classes seem to be very slow. Yeah, they are all 3 hours but they move like snails.

Today I made an appointment with Katz to see just how much more I need to go in school. So, I'll know next Monday for sure on my credits and all that. Hopefully it's the number I thought it was because I'll be one happy ho. Though I have a feeling it won't be.

When I look at my Academic Planning sheet and Major sheet.. It looks like I only need 10/11 more classes. I just feel really anxious and can't wait to find out Mondaaaay. I also don't want to get my hopes up.


Argh.

I'm trying to take 5 classes this semester. One is still pending and hopefully it'll happen.

Okay.. so.. Um..

I was looking at my classes and did the math to see how many classes I need. I then went onto gothicnet to look at my progress report. If.. IF I did everything correctly I need 11 more classes to graduate. 11!!! ELEVEN! WHAT!?! I got so excited I almost ran around in circles--almost. But I want to be 100% sure this is true. If it is I will take winter courses so I could get the fuck outta here.


WHAT!!!!!!!!! I will break dance on that fucking stage.


Edit: So, I got into the class.. Human Sexual Biology here I come!

From UPS about a job:

This is a reminder that you have an appointment tommorow on Monday, September 04, 2006 at 5:00 AM


So me and a group of guys are waiting there.. and waiting and waiting. In the cold. Finally at 5:30 I went to go sit in the truck because it's as cold as a bastard. Then at 6AM a dude that could double as Bilbo Baggins with less teeth and hair finally comes out to tell us because of the holiday everything is canceled. To sign our names and HR would call us to reschedule. I thought it was weird to have it today, but I went anyway. Oh well what could you do?

Don't even work for the bitch yet and already I'm annoyed.

Blockbuster rent out porns.


Kevin and I went tonight to drop off stuff and perhaps pick something up. Well, of course I spied with my little eye Pirates! I had already seen this movie because it was talked about for some time between me and Jess. It was funny. Pirates of the Caribbean with bad acting and lots and lots of sex? Yeah, that is this movie. So, I got Kevin to rent it to bring to this movie get together we were going to.. We ended up watching Prime. It was okay. I'm used to American cinema and sometimes.. Yeah, I just want a happy ending!

Anyway this night did not end with a happy ending because we didn't watch Pirates!

I hear my Mom is in the alley way that my window is open to and she yells to my Aunt who is going up the stairs..

"The doooog! I mean--Dottie is outside!"


I soon laughed my ass off. WTF she called Dottie a dog right to her face.

What the fuck.. Smokey just walked in my room and pissed on the rug before just simply walking out.

Meanwhile she usually runs around or comes and bothers you if she has to go out. This time she didn't even give me a glance.



Maybe it's pay back for Chloe/Crackle? Anyway, now I have this huge puddle of piss in my room.

I have such a headache.. Could it be the cold, the dust and cat hair flying into my air passages, hanging upside down trying to get cats from under a bed or the running up and down of stairs? Could be any of those.

Anyway.. Crackle is here! We took Crackle and Aunt Tique took Pop. Poor Snap was left behind, but I think my Aunt will take her.

She said when she released Pop, Patches her other cat, went totally P-S-Y-C-H-O on his ass. This cat is 15 years old and seems like it wouldn't hurt a fly. Oh well, that has changed. I heard all this rumbling on the ceiling and couldn't believe my ears. Patches then attacked Tom/her brother.

Crackle--a name that needs changing--ran into my bed and hid under the pillows. She is scared of course. Then I got her to let Smokey sniff her.. Then I let her go and she ran under my Mom's bed where Baxter was. Baxter was sitting right next to her growling and making noises I never heard before. I then got Baxter from under the bed so Crackle--ugh that name!--could just be in peace there. I think Cha-Chi, the bitchiest cat you'll ever meet, pissed herself! Lol. I picked her up and her leg seemed wet.. Aw.

Four more cats need saving. So, if you have a heart which I know most of you don't.. Come get one!

Tuesday I woke up and felt like I was going to get sick. That night it started to set in and this morning voila! I could hardly swallow and if I do it hurts a lot. My body is so sore and I'm getting hot/cold flashes. I'm all stuffy and thick phlegm is making an appearance. I also felt like I was getting delirious late last night.. Joy.

asshole alert [Aug. 3rd, 2006|11:16 pm]

[Current Mood |shockedshocked]

Yes, right now I feel like the biggest one in the world!

I parked my car across the street last night and the street sweeper will be on that side in the morning. So, when my Mom was leaving she reminded me. I get my keys and go to move it. Well.. and this is where the fun begins. As I'm about to make a U-Turn, mid U, I almost crash into a police car! WHAT?!!!!

First off I'm making a U-Turn in a four lane street. Second--if you didn't read correctly--I almost HIT a police CAR containing two cops!

I slammed on my brakes as did they and soon after their lights were going off. I already knew, so I was already pulled over and waiting. A cop I've known from a few years back, who doesn't recognize me, comes up and in their high authority tone is like--"You've got to be kidding me! Right?! You've got to be kidding me!" I feel like such an asshole because I have an audience from across the street. I explain to him why I was moving the car and that I just didn't see them. Plus, my truck has a huge blind spot.. Which could be seen here.

Damn you Honda!

He then asks for my license. My license is in the house, which I tell him, he laughs and then asks where I live. I point to the house I am parked right in front of and then am told to get it. So, I do that come back.. and he asks for my registration. Meanwhile, I forgot that my Mom had put the PBA badge and card I got from a cop friend, in my registration. I hand the whole thing to him.. which I never do any other time I've gotten pulled over. He asks about the badge and I'm like, "whaaa? OH! It's ______ ______." He asks how I know him, then hands everything back to me and gets into his car. So, since he didn't say jack to me.. I didn't know what to do. Do I drive off? Sit there? What?! I decide to just wait. It seemed like the longest wait ever. Finally they drive up to me and are like, "We talked to him, he said to just let her go." I was like.. WOW these things work? "You know you didn't even look! You almost hit us! -big loud annoyed sigh- Drive safe." and then they drove off. I then pulled into my parking spot and got out to hear my Aunt Tique yelling out the window, "Sherene what happened!??!??!"

I feel so sick and like such an asshole. I am a good driver and I know it, but it makes me sick to think I almost CRASHED into a COP CAR. WTF is this? What is wrong with me? I have such a headache now and I just can't believe it.

It's a bit blurry since I was standing in the street and the light was about to turn green. Those taxis don't want to stop for anything. So, I risked my life for a blurry pic of this!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

When I got there they didn't check me for anything, just people with bags.. I could have brought my camera and taken a few snapshots of Whoopi Goldberg, Tim Robbins, Stanley Tucci, Kathy Bates, Stephen King, John Irving annnnnndddddd J.K. Rowling!

King read the "The Revenge of Lardass Hogan" [Stand by Me] and John Irving from "A Prayer for Owen Meeney"[Simon Birch]. J.K. read from "The Half Blood Prince" the scene where Dumbledore goes to Tom Riddle at the orphanage. It was exciting. She did the voices and one was pretty funny. Her reading wasn't as long as the others, but she answered a lot more questions than they did.

She said, this is cut for people who may not have read the books yet--losers, you KNOW who is REALLY dead.
There are more things in store for Snape in book 7..
There is more to Aunt Petunia that meets the eye. Something special.
You know who is really dead--again. People kept asking that. WASTING QUESTIONS!

Then someone asked the three of them if they could bring 5 characters from their books to dinner who would it be? Stephen King said he'd be eating alone. Lol.. John Irving turned the question into a 20 minute thing. He was really into answering the questions in detail. J.K. said Harry, Hermione, Ron, Dumbledore and Hagrid. She also said if she could bring one character to life, besides Harry, it would be Hagrid. Because we could all use a Hagrid in our lives.

I really wish I brought my camera because I could have gotten some really good pictures. Plus, I was sitting near some old dad that brought his daughter and her friend. They were like.. eleven. I would have liked to sit next to all the other HP fans, but no. I was seated with the John Irving peeps. Oh well, I still went and I enjoyed it.

When I was leaving I saw Elegant Elliot Offen [ http://www.amiannoying.com/(rpvb4n450zdkfa55bpifusbj)/view.aspx?ID=3745 ] from the Howard Stern Show. He was running through Times Square in a woman's red nightie. I was hysterical laughing. Then I was walking down 8th Avenue and saw Richard Kind [ http://imdb.com/name/nm0454236/ ] from "Curb Your Enthusiasm".. one of my favorite shows. I guess they aren't like jaw dropping celebs, but celebs nonetheless! I have yet to see Lucy Liu in town!

All in all it was an A+ night.

So, I've been talking to some peeps of IMDB.com that live in Bayonne.. because I'm borderline stalker and should be in jail. One of them saw Lucy Liu yesterday because they live near the place. AH! That if you see a big trailer it is hers and you know she is there. AH AH!

Okay, I have to stop.

Some of you may know I have some obsessions.. You found out with my Lucy Liu post recently. It has come to my attention that J.K. Rowling is going to be in NYC reading a chapter from one of the books along with Stephen King and John Irving from theirs. Well, I totally flipped my shit and ran to round up people to go. Sadly the tickets were sold out in pairs so I purchased one for myself. JEALOUS?

August 2nd at 7:30PM I will be at Radio City Music Hall acting a fool when the words of Harry Potter come from J.K. Rowling's mouth herself!

Yes, this made my summer.

I have gotten wind that they are filming yet another movie in Bayonne. It never ends, but this one has gotten my interest like no other.. Why? LUCY FUCKING LIU is the leading lady! ..ahem.


Let me just begin to say how much I love the Lucy Liu and think she is one of the sexiest things on this planet. Yes. When I heard I didn't take it serious, but I still had to investigate to make sure. You never know. So, after showering, grabbing a Jane magazine circa October 2003 and digital camera I was out the door to explore. I get to the street and yes they are indeed filming. BUT the crew is packing up. I got sad, but hey.. They'll be there tomorrow and so will I! Does this sound like I am obsessed? Perhaps.. perhaps. It's only a marriage proposal.

http://imdb.com/title/tt0472205/ Cillian Murphy is also in this movie. I could give a flying fig about him, but I just wanted to share. Hopefully I'll get a pic or 400. We'll see..


LUCY LIU!

Yesterday my Mom became the owner of this little beauty.. The Road King.

It's seriously hot stuff and got me excited when the engine kicked over. How did my Mom acquire this? Well, my Uncle asked her to co-sign and she agreed, but then when we got to the place his credit wasn't that great and my Mom's is A+. He was exchanging his old bike that looked great.. Until we saw his new bike which looks like a king. So, she is the owner, but he is the rider. Jealous! Being at the dealership was such a tease.. I didn't want to leave. I fell in love a few times. I did get a shirt out of the deal and the promise of going to riding school as a Christmas gift. Whoa nelly.

Too funny. I was in the back yard tending to my plants and clipping certain leaves that block the sun. So, I'm holding these fan leaves and Smoochie, my Aunt Tique's dog, comes and sniffs them. I decided to just joke around so I wave them a little. He tears a piece off and then spits it out. Then I start to talk to my Mom and all of the sudden he jumps up and grabs the leaves out of my hand and starts to eat them like a maniac. My Aunt started to yell, he ate most of them before he ran off to sit in the shade. She got mad at me, but the dog went straight for it! I guess that first taste was all he needed. Kid in a candy store.

Bayonne was crazy yesterday with Italy winning the World Cup.

Around 4:30 yesterday I texted Ro/the Italian Ho, "Forza Italia!" and three seconds later she calls me screaming drunk off her ass. What I got from her was that there was a parade of people going on down Broadway/the main street in town. I knew her family would probably be leading it since they are straight from the old country themselves.

Well anyway, it was fucking crazy. Tons of people with Italy's flag waving around, hanging from their cars, fire works, people screaming, holding up traffic, cars honking for every person dressed in blue or holding a green, white and red flag. It was great. Up and down our 3 mile town. I participated until I got home to Eric's Graduation BBQ.

But of course.. this is to be expected. New Jersey representin' their Ginzo brethren.

I haven't posted a weird comment from my Mom or Aunt in a while.. So, this morning it had to change.

To Smokey, our dog, to get her to go out.

Mom: Come on. Come on, girlfriend.
Me: She isn't your girlfriend.
Mom: She better be my girlfriend with her nice white ass.

Haha..

I guess cause my Mom gave her a little bath yesterday and cleaned the rear, but it made me crack up.
