newsvine - don't you forget about david cook: american idol season 10 farewell song revealed  

I'm sure the lot of you have flailed today, lost your ovaries, screamed to the top of your lungs in excitement and like me, burned down a building and walked away only to hope freeze frame applies in real life and give the best goshdang fist pump in the world!

David Cook is back friends. He's back and better than ever. I was texting with Em aka [livejournal.com profile] storminmay earlier today and we both mutually love the flailing and the honest fact that his music has the power to bring all of us together and create this bond. It's adorable. I love it! I had the chance today without even realizing it to write a little something over at my Newsvine column. Be sure to check it out and let me know what you think of the Simple Minds' cover David's created.

Don't You Forget About David Cook: American Idol Season 10 Farewell Song Revealed

During the week of March 8 on American Idol, David Cook, the winner of the popular reality competition’s seventh season returns with a musical treat. His latest song, a cover of the 1985 hit by Simple Minds, “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” will make its debut next week as this year’s send-off track for the departing contestants of the show’s tenth season.

This is a big surprise for all of his fans as they’ve waited eagerly for new music from the multi-platinum seller since his successful self-titled debut album back in 2008, selling more than 1.4 million copies along with his American Idol coronation single, “The Time of my Life” becoming the highest-selling in the show’s history.

Happy birthday Elizabeth aka [info]darlingdivine!!
I think the world of you -- you have an amazing heart, such a lovely soul and I'm certain everyone who knows you, agrees that you are basically, one of the sweetest and friendliest people we've ever known. You are hilarious, a sure-fire charm and I wish you nothing but the best today. I hope you have an amazingly splendid day ahead of you with much love, happiness and as much as laughter as you bring us! I love you, my Elvis soulmate! ♥

Now enjoy these Elvis cupcakes...made of pure Elvis win! :D

Disclaimer: I did not make these nor are they made of "Elvis". Wouldn't that be weird? Like, his actual being, these cupcakes were made from? Nevertheless, I would love to eat them with you! :D

I hope you have an amazing day ahead of you and that you get all that you wish for and more. You are an awesome friend and such a delight to talk to. I hope we get to meet up this year -- that'd be awesome! And keep on writing! You have a lot of depth to you and are such a solid chick.

I didn't bake the cake below but if I did, how awesome is that cake? I'd totally mail it to you. I've never baked anything that amazing looking.

Anyhoo, you have a great day ahead of you!! Love you!! ♥

So, as I posted before -- Kathleen, [livejournal.com profile] somewheresunny and I were watching the Live Coco Cam and well, before she headed home from work we were watching Ross Everett, one of the Conan staff members pose nude for a portrait and well...

Kathleen, here is what you missed while you drove home!

LOLOLOLOLOL!!! I knew it. I knew they'd add Conan's face on Ross' junk! XD

PS: I hope you got home safely, dollface! ♥

happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] thethingiswhat!!!  

Happy birthday Katherine!!!!

You are one of the most hilarious people I've met in a long time and also, one who loves The Simpsons as much as I do! That is pretty awesome. I'm so glad you are the Lenny to my Carl. I wish you all the best on this day and hope it's amazing and fun-filled and that you get to hang out with your friends, have a good time and be happy!! You are a darling and seeing as we're both avid writers and love the art of it all, I present to you a clip from The Simpsons...

I felt it was fitting because of the writing aspect...and also, make sure you get some beer and TV in you. Or if not beer, perhaps some wine and cookies with TV. That'll be good. Happy birthday!! :)

Happy birthday Kathleen!!

I hope you have an amazing day ahead of you with so much love and lots of fun! You know, there's this quote that says the language of friendship is not about words but rather meanings...in the time we got to know each other, I have valued you deeply as a friend and am highly appreciative of the gestures of kindness and encouragement you make. You are a great friend and I always wish you nothing but love and happiness, success and joy!!

So, happy birthday!! Also, next time we hang out can you bring this?

We be having a party and watch some baseball huh? It'll be rad. I'll take you to a Blue Jays game next time you're in Toronto! Yeah? After baseball, we will watch "You've Got Mail" because you are the Kathleen Kelly to my Joe Fox. F-O.X....  :)

flisters!! assemble!!! i need your tales about...  

I'm trying to create a new character -- actually, a few for my next untitled project. Basically, I'm looking for interesting stories that any of you might have about teachers and/or professors.

I'm looking for the following:

  • strange quirks and observations
  • what your teacher/professor taught? and did their personality reflect that subject they taught?
  •  any funny stories about them?
Also, any funny tales from gym class, drama class, in the cafeteria, principals, etc. In a nutshell, I want to know about your past or current faculty members but the funny side of them.

Write all your tales in here please. It would be GREATLY appreciated! :)

ETA: This journal entry is made public for those who want to share their teacher tales.

If possible, I'd like these stories in by October 6th!! The sooner, the better though. :)

"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."

Happy birthday Em! I love you so darn much! You're an awesome friend who always lends a hand when I need it most, gives me wicked amazing advice, makes me smile and laugh and is a great shoulder to lean on. I wish you nothing but love, happiness and joy on this day because you deserve it. You deserve so much more than you think and I do wish we meet one day and just hang out because you are a sheer delight. I hope you get all that you want in life and just enjoy your day with your loved ones and smile -- always smile because you're beautiful!! :D

PS: I was trying to find something of a Sesame Street vibe in accordance with our "What you are to me" meme, remember but I figured I'm a bunny and...well, you're not a duck. But they're cute, yes?? LOL! xD

stop! and stare! ♥______♥  

I have nothing else to say but that this is a piece of art! I am not just saying that. Ashleigh aka [livejournal.com profile] ch_ch_chinatown is seriously one of my favourite performers! I put her in that class of performers with musicians who've signed records because she is AMAZING. Period. She's modest, warm-hearted and she doesn't understand just how gorgeous the tone to her voice is. This performance of hers, gave me goosebumps also known as my new word, "goosies"! She sang it ever so tenderly with this sincere vulnerability and I guarantee, in the years to come Ashleigh will be your Idol. But remember. I'm her #1 fan!

Now. Enjoy...


PS: If anyone wants an MP3 rip of this (along w/cover art -- yes, I swearzies I'll make it) let me know and I shall upload! :)
