Hee Hee, did you miss me??? I know, I know, I went three whole days without a new entry. What was I thinking? I was thinking, Gee, maybe i should study for finals. That might be smart. So now that thats all over, thank you Lord, I can go back to being lazy and doing whatever I want. This was seriously the week from hell.
I am completely obsessed with Vesuvious by Frank Ticheli. We're playing it in band and it kicks. It is so good. lol. Manhattan Music this is the sight where i downloaded it, but it took forever. Go ahead if you feel so inclined b/c its really an awesome song, but beware, its nine minutes long!
So guess what. Me and one of my best friends are sharing a lead role for our schools play, Caught in the Net. This is my first play ever, and shes been doing it since she was tiny. She feels insulted that she has to share a role with me b/c she thinks shes "so much better" than I am (here i feel the need to question why I too got a lead role if I "suck" as she says). She has stopped talking to me and is speading rumors all over the school. I can't believe how shes acting. Its not my fault that she solely didn't get the lead. I don't feel compelled to be friends with a bitch, so unfortunately I am not going to persue trying to be friends anymore. I am so sad about this. honestly (thats not sarcastic)
Enough about me, bring on the good topics...so speaking, todays just happens to be:
Silicone Breast Implants and the FDA
Silicone gel-filled breast implants were introduced in the U.S. in the early 1960s, before medical devices became subject to FDA regulation in 1976. By the early 1990s, concerns about potential health risks associated with silicone breast implants began to emerge, including leakage and rupture problems, reports of connective tissue disorders, and a possible cancer risk among women with the implants. These concerns caused the FDA to ban the sale of silicone breast implants in 1992 except for use in clinical trials. The ban also prompted a string of lawsuits against implant manufacturers from women who said they suffered health problems or disfiguration as a result of their silicone breast implants. Meanwhile, saline-filled breast implants are already approved for use in breast augmentation and reconstruction surgery. These implants contain a saltwater solution similar to that used in IV fluids. Although saline implants are also likely to leak or rupture over time, research shows that the risks posed by leakage are less serious because the body readily absorbs the saline solution. Despite some uncertainty about breast implants, the demand for them is clearly increasing. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 225,000 women received breast implants for cosmetic reasons in 2002, a 593% increase since 1992. Breast augmentation was also among the top five cosmetic plastic surgery procedures in 2002.

Life's little lesson can be annoying
School was cancelled today which i find utterly annoying. I am sick of christmas break and being able to see anyone. I'm so tired of being cooped up in this house and being bored. arg...
O my and to make it worse i coulnd't fall asleep forever last night and then I had to get up really early for school...well i got all ready and was on my way in when I call one of my friends and find out that, hey, guess what, there is no school today. you're shitting me right. um, no...there's really no school. grr...
This Britney spears controversy is pissing me off. Did she or did she get married on purpose or what. I was watching the news and apparently she and her 'male amigo' went to the chapel the first time but couldn't get married b/c they didn't have all the paperwork they needed. So they left and came back TWO hours later with it. That doesn't seem like an accident to me. Oops... seems the blonde really is natural...
James hasn't talked to me and I've emailed him and texted him and all and he hasn't responded...I knows he gotten the messages so it makes it completely aggrivating...I'm giving up on guys. They are confusing...and so far they just have proved the myth that they don't have much going on in their heads. (yes yes my male readers, i know that you do actually have something up there...maybe it goes like this: sex, boobs, PS2, sex...sex again)
Todays Selected Topic
Traci Lords: Underneath It All
A Candid Tale of a Teenage Porn Star
Nora Kuzma was a troubled teenager from Steubenville, Ohio; Traci Lords was the underage skin mag/porn queen who became the centerpiece of the adult video industry's greatest scandal. In reality, they were one and the same, the subject of this slick, if thin autobiography. But what's striking here is not the familiar storyline--confused, sexually abused teen falls in with drugs and the wrong Southern California crowd, forges fake IDs to become Penthouse Pet of the Month at 16 and the '80s hottest adult star, then arrested as focus of the Reagan administration's crackdown on porn, only to become reborn as cleaned-up, psychoanalyzed/rehabed purveyor of legitimate film, TV, and music career. Rather, what's striking is Lords's capacity for denial, compartmentalization, and myopia when it serves her ends.

Why Oprah's So Popular...
Hello my dears!
NOTE TO READERS: IF YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR BLOGS POSTED ON THIS SITE, CONTACT ME OR LEAVE ME A COMMENT. THANKS
I wish i had something to talk to you about tonight, but alas i don't so, I'll write of something other than me (gee i'm sure your disappointed lol)
Today's Selected Topic
'Why Oprah's So Popular'
In January 1984, she came to Chicago to host WLS-TV's "AM Chicago," a faltering local talk show. In less than a year, she turned "AM Chicago" into the hottest show in town. The format was soon expanded to one hour, and in September, 1985 it was renamed "The Oprah Winfrey Show."
Seen nationally since September 8, 1986, "The Oprah Winfrey Show" became the number one talk show in national syndication in less than a year. In June, 1987, in its first year of eligibility "The Oprah Winfrey Show" received three Daytime Emmy Awards in the categories of Outstanding Host, Outstanding Talk/Service Program and Outstanding Direction. In June, 1988, "The Oprah Winfrey Show" received its second consecutive Daytime Emmy Award as Outstanding Talk/Service Program, and she herself received the International Radio and Television Society's "Broadcaster of the Year" Award. She was the youngest person and only the fifth woman ever to receive the honor in IRTS's 25-year history. For more on this article, click here Oprah Winfrey Bio.
My personal opinion, though it might not count, is that middle-aged American women feel they can relate to this influential talk show host because she wasn't born rich or what not. Secondly, she keeps her topics fresh and new without being trashy, something older America appreciates. But enough of that...
READERS, READERS my life might finally be picking up. James and I talked last night and things went pretty smoothly. Hopefuly we'll talk again tonight. Finals are still coming my way (tear) and school begins again tomorrow.
