Wish on everything. Pink cars are good, especially old ones. And stars of course, first stars and shooting stars. Planes will do if they are the first light in the sky and look like stars. Wish in tunnels, holding your breath and lifting your feet off the ground. Birthday candles. Baby teeth.

EXCITING THINGS!

1) The Red Balloon is streaming on Netflix.

2) Over 150 Young Adult authors have donated to an eBay auction to benefit the Community Foodbank of New Jersey to help out those affected by Hurricane Sandy. This is the moment I am SO BUMMED we don't have an adult YA book club on the island because I have no one to get excited with me! It's like the YA Winter Formal and I DON'T EVEN HAVE A DATE.

The big money item is an ARC of Sloppy Firsts with Megan McCafferty's handwritten personal notes (including the true origins of Marcus Flutie. ♥ MARCUS FLUTIE ♥), which is currently going for over $500.

Other cool items up for bid include a critique of your manuscript by top editors in the YA genre, Skype calls with authors, and the chance to have YA authors come speak at your school. But my FAVORITE auction is this one in which you and David Levithan can create a story together via postcards in the mail. HOW AWESOME IS THAT???? Very, very! I am jealous of the winner!

Anyway, there's a bunch of fun auctions going on and a whole lot of of them are still in the $10 range if you or someone on your holiday list is a big YA fan! Complete list of items for bid here.

ohana means family  
Oh, friendslist! [livejournal.com profile] crackers4jenn and I made a BEST TV FAMILIES picspam which you can feast your eyes upon (sidenote: seriously, the way I just worded that sounds so gross. Or grandma-ish. Why did that come from my typing fingers? Why?) right here!

It was hard narrowing down which families to choose but I had a lot of fun working on this because it's always B-E-S-T to do a project with Crackers!!!!

In the end we went with:

Gilmores from Gilmore Girls
Taylors from FNL
Connors from Roseanne
Smiths from Fresh Prince
Winchesters from SPN
Summers from Buffy
Stonems from Skins (UK)
Mars from Veronica Mars
Cobbs from Cougar Town
Hummels from Glee
Arnolds from The Wonder Years
Stilinskis from Teen Wolf
Starks from Game of Thrones
Huxtables from Cosby
Bravermans from Parenthood
Pritchetts from Modern Family
Bluths from Arrested Development
Cesare and Lucrezia from The Borgias
Scotts from One Tree Hill
Fishers from Six Feet Under
Cohens from The O.C.
Keatons from Family Ties
Simpsons from The Simpsons
Bundys from Married With Children

OHANA!!!! ♥♥♥

and that's how babies grow?  
Listen up, reproductive system! I am TOO SICK of having periods!!!!! Then, the worst thought, after I am finally done with years of bloody horror stories going on inside my body, OH JOYFUL MENOPAUSE WITH ITS HOT FLASHES AND SUCH. Gag!!!! This is UNJUST. I don't even want any future babies!!!! I WOULD RATHER JUST LAY AN EGG EVERY DAY, JFC.

So anyway, I am in the most grumpy of moods, but this Hunger Games bad lip reading clip made me for real LOL during one part. THE BABIES PART.



I want four cheese macaroni now. With goldfish crackers baked on top. And maybe some prosciutto. And probably accompanied by LOTS OF WINE. Ugh. MENSTRUATION.

Help Us Support Planned Parenthood  
Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] theljstaff at Help Us Support Planned Parenthood


Join us in standing up for reproductive health and education. Planned Parenthood, the organization that delivers reproductive health care, sex education and information to millions of people worldwide, has come under fire in the U.S. lately, with many politicians on both state and federal level seeking to end funding (and in a few cases succeeding).

During the month of May, you can send a specially designed Planned Parenthood vgift to your friends to help support this cause. (And if you need someone to send it to, [livejournal.com profile] frank is always happy to receive gifts!) There are three variations ($1, $5 and $10) for you to choose from, but they'd all look good on your profile when your friends know that you stand by something so important.

                    

Thank you all for your help in our support for Planned Parenthood. This promotion ends June 1, 2012; LiveJournal is not affiliated with Parent Parenthood. For more information about Planned Parenthood, please visit: http://www.plannedparenthood.org/

the red pee  
I have a coffee hangover. I don't think that has ever happened to me before. I did not actually know it was possible!

Anyway, I have a very important question!!! Do you like beets? Probably I should just make a poll so someone might actually answer. But that seems like too much effort right now. So I'll know if you comment you must REALLY love beets. And then we will be best friends!

(I made a beet burrito. It was... delicious.)

THIS WORLD IS BREAKING MEEEEEEEE. I AM TOO PRECIOUS TO LIVE ON THIS PLANEEEEEEEEET! Corrupt and sick and failing and I really just wanna fuck off into the woods somewhere. No, wait, TO THE BEACH SOMEWHERE. It's just, like, why does it gotta hurt so much? How can things like Troy Davis' execution happen? How can any number of the crazy-horrible things that go on daily happen? HOW DO WE KEEP LETTING THESE THINGS HAPPEN??? The worst of it is it feels so hopeless to change. Waaaaaah!!!

ps; high-fives all around, buddies! hugs and junk. i am super busy and probably mostly crazy but i still love you. ♥

pps; i am gonna watch revenge tonight! excite. I HOPE THE COCONUT TREE OUTSIDE MY HUT GETS GOOD RECEPTION.

ppps; if you are not watching awkward, your world is an even darker place than mine! TEAM JAK-- MATTY? I AM SO TORN!!!
