The Five Craziest People I Wish I Could Hang Out With.

There are so many crazy celebrities that I wish I could hang out with for just one day. I decided that I could totally be in an entourage. How awesome would just hanging out with celebs all day, being friends with them and getting sweet hook ups and helping them get crazy deals and gigs. So in the spirit of Entourage.....Here are the 5 people whose Entourage I would totally want to be in.

5. Katy Perry

Hanging out with Snoop Doggy Dog and layin on the beach of California would make her awesome to hang out with. She seems really down to earth but also ready to party. This Santa Barbara babe started off at the city college. Which is right by me! She can jet across the USA and act like an alien...which seems an awful lot like......

4.Lady Gaga
She once said that her cast members weren't allowed to have sex while on tour so that they would be able to make love to her onstage. Me and my Best Friend For Life (Conviently called BFFL) saw her in Dublin and have been somewhat intoxicated with her. She is the leader of the monsters and frankly she is an odd goose, or monster...but hanging with her would be wild and fun. I feel like she would be the one person who would just decide that the group was going somewhere to find the Monster Ball.....I would be so down.

3. Demetri Martin
If you have not heard his standup, then you need to stop reading this and go listen. He is the funniest person I have ever heard. He is a great singer and just overall amazing. He does standup on Comedy Central and is all around awesome. Going out for drinks with him would be like going to see a stand up....oh wait. No seriously I feel like you would just be laughing constantly and you wouldnt be able to be sad at all. The best part about him is that being in his entourage would allow you to hang out with him all the time and he isnt super popular so he wouldnt be constantly bombarded. perfection.

2. Will Ferrell
This man; If Will Ferrell was 20 years younger, I would marry him. No wait ten years younger, no wait, lets be honest. If you know Will and want to hook me up. Please do it. I love this man. Every movie he is in, I am so down. I basically peed my pants when I saw he was coming on the office. Talk about two perfect things colliding (is that a saying?). Will would be awesome because all his friends get to be in movies with him. Will Ferrell and John C Reilly have done a ton of movies together. Same with him and Steve Carell, David Koechner, and Vince Vaughn. They are all in each other's movies comedy endeavors and just in general they are awesome. I would love to hang out with them for a day.

1. Andy, Jorma, and Akiva from the Lonely Island
Ever since J in my P, I was in love and obsessed. I have seen all their videos, their shorts, and their songs. On a Boat was classic, (thank you SNL) but the really great thing about them is that they have Hot Rod, Which is hilarious. They have Awesome Town (Which I would love to move to) and there are two guys who are always having a good time and also happen to love sports. These three boys are comedy at its finest. BoomBox, On a Boat, Just had Sex, Jizz in my Pants. That is them. I would love to hang around that comedic genius all day.

I wish I could budget like this.

I was reading the news, because I like to be well informed and hate doing homework. But I stumbled upon this. (Thats a hyperlink you can click it. I am proud that i figured out how to do this. Hey future employer call me and hire me! Look at how good i am at the internet!) Anyhoo, as I was reading I stumbled across this little story.

On the surface it seems good, then you think about it and it is bad then it gets better then worse. Let me take you through my thought process while reading it. For those of you too lazy to click the button, here is the title and my thoughts will be italicized.
 "US to give Libyan rebels $25 million in aid"
Ohhhhhh thats nice of us. We need to help out and rid the world of dictators and make the world as free as america.........wait $25 million.......thats a lot.

It goes on to read that we will be donating items that are needed for the Libyan people that we already have in stock. While this is great and we should be looking to help our neighbors, there should be other ways that we can do this. The government was just on the verge of a shut down and only agreed on a budget to take us through to the fall, but then we will be facing the same sort of issuses again. To me, it doesnt seem like donating $25 million is the best thing for the government. Does our government not realize that they dont get tax write-offs? that they are still going to be in debt when the new financial year comes and that they wont be recieving any money back? Hiliary Clinton was one of the people who advised Obama to sign on this, and i am going to keep bi-partisianship out of this, because helping out those who need it is a noble cause. But what if we are close to being one who needs help.

France, Italy and The United Kingdom all pledged soldiers to help in the "battlefield stalemate"

This is a scary world that we are living in. America has been a superpower for so long that now we feel like we are invincible. However, we are not the prosperous country that we used to be. Our money has flown away and we are on the verge of bankruptcy and owe more money than we are worth. Can we really afford to help Lybia financially? Is this another example of us spending money that we dont have? or is this America taking the stand for what is right?

It is tough to deny help, we have always been support for the weak, we have always helped those in need and surly with our own wars to fight we cannot spare many men to go over and help in the fighting like our European brothers are doing, but is exhausting an already exhausted account the way to do it?

well, awesome

So I just checked my email. Its been a weekend of craziness and fun, and no homework. As my free monday rolls around i decide to check my email. I have a research paper peer review due. Fan-freakin-tastic. I am sure that all my readers (my mother included) that if i was to tell you how long i had had this assignment (since February) and the amount that i have done (a very very rough outline) you would be disappointed. Hell, I'm dissappointed in me. Now i could just start writing it right now. But Hulu and Blogger are so much more interesting. so Here is my semi public vow to start after my meeting, errands, dinner and hanging out. Then i will get right on to that paper so that i can have SOMETHING to turn in and get some sort of a grade on.

hahaha we will see how well that goes.

Well, It has been a long time since i have written anything. My life has been crazy! I have been working on this internship, my classes, my two other jobs then, of course, managing a very healthy social life. It is exhausting, but someone has to do it. Today though, I end a mini journey that has been nothing less than an adventure. I have meet a few famous people, learned a lot about script writing and how the whole process works, I have learned how to fake working while spending 99% of my time on facebook, collegehumor, youtube,, and obviously stumbling. haha

It was so hard to sit for 8 hours a day and just read a script then write coverage on it. It was hard for me not because I dont like reading, or because I don't enjoy writing (im a half hearted blogger, i obviously enjoy it). I just cant sit and do the same thing for 8 hours with no real break and not even be getting paid for it. Sure i get school credit, but anyone who knows my school ethics will know that credit doesnt really mean much to me as far as motivation goes.

So as i sit and waste the last 3 hours and 30 minutes (thank you God) of this Journey, i hope to reminisce and day dream about what i will be doing with my spare time. In my mind I plan on doing the far fetched: taking a pilates or yoga class, getting into Pottery or Painting, buying a sewing kit and making myself a new wardrobe. probably buy a puppy named fernando and then study german. I could go on and on, the most far fetched would be inheriting a gold/diamond mine (I'm not really picky) and then traveling. But as my mind runs wild and my eyes start to droop i realize what i really want most is to sleep. I probably will spend my first month off sitting in my bed all day i may even get out on a really nice day and head all the way downstairs to plop my butt down on a pool chair and work on that tan. By the time that I am ready to stop lazing and start actually doing something it will be May 13th and then I will graduate and need to start working full time.

I can pretend that that wont happen, and maybe i can pledge to do at least one productive thing each day...but that probably will fail too......ugh least I graduate soon.
