Have you heard of NaNoWriMo?

November is the month to write a novel!!!! The goal of NaNoWriMo is to get as many people as we can muster to write a Novel in 30 days. A novel consists of 50,000 words. That equates to 1666.67 words written each day for 30 days.

This will be my 2nd attempt, although last year I think I stopped at one paragraph…this year I have something very inspiring to write about…and some may not think that I will be able to write an ENTIRE book about being bitchy, but I assure you…I have enough inspiration around me to last an entire Harry Potter-esque series…so thanks to a friend of mine for giving me the ammo to approach this goal again…I will attempt it. GOD HELP ME, I’ll ATTEMPT IT!

The support that flows through NaNoWriMo’s website it really wonderful…although it didn’t give me the kick in the ass that I needed last year to finish what I started! I don’t blame it on anyone but myself! I’m not a damn novelist! I like to BLOG about nonsense and mayhem and pissyness!!! I don’t care. This year…I’m sassy enough, bitchy enough and GODDAMMIT, people piss me off!

I hope you give it a shot. If you do, please let me know and I’ll be-friend you there and we’ll get this show on the road – TOGETHER! Yessirreebob!

My Friend Wish-List

September 17, 2010 at 10:09 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

So my all-time wish is to be Will Smith’s friend. Please understand..it’s not because he’s “hot” (thanks Paris for that little slang term)…it not because he is, as we call it in our house “L-O-D-I-D”. I’m not in it for the fortune or fame…I just think he is a COOL DUDE!  Look at him…he’s all “Wassup Carm-dogg?!?” I’m all, “SUP WILL SMIFFFF!!!” He loves his wife, he’s silly like me and he can DUMB-DANCE like a MO-FO!

Oh, I’m not done…my list goes on…

Oprah. She would enrich my life. She’s a lovely woman who I could just really feel that I could make laugh. I don’t know…I think she’d get a kick out of me. Does that sound conceited? I hope not.

The Obama’s. I want to be their friend. I know – that is too much to ask. WAAAY too much. I just get so warm and fuzzy when I see them that I just want more – not in a stalker kind of way…in an, “I want them to come over for dinner once-a-month” kind of way. Wow…look that them. She’s waving at me, I think.

Vince Gill. The dude is a teddy bear and I love him. He’s got one of the most beautiful voices of all time and can play the guitar like nobody’s business. I’d love to sing harmony with him. While I’m at it, his wife, Amy Grant and I could go shopping a few times a month and just chit-chat about silly things. I think that would be awesome.

Alisson Krauss. I want to sing with her. I have a decent singing voice and had I not fallen for my high-school love and gotten hitched at the ripe old age of 19 I would have persued a singing career. I would love her to invite me to a recording session and watch the silliness unfold and close my eyes and listen to her sweet, sweet voice as it fills me with pure joy. Pretty thing that she is!

Simon Cowell. I think he’s not as bad as they say he is and I would enjoy being with him without all the cameras around to see what he’s really like. Look at that smile…he can’t be all bad, right?!?! hehehe

Africa. I want Africa to be my friend. It’s true. Is that even possible? Whenever I hear of my friends going on missionary trips to Africa…I get all goosebumpy and immediately start to tear up. Perhaps if Oprah decides that she would be my friend, she’d let me work at her school. I would enjoy that. There is something to be said for a culture who looks so happy when they have so little. I may never want to come back if I ever get a chance to visit there. Look at those faces. I could just smooch them all over!!!

Michael Buble. His voice melts me. It’s got nothing to do with his boyish charm or anything…I just wanna hang with him. It’d be awesome to sing with him as well. He just oozes coolness and I suppose that I just want some of that to brush off on me.

I think he’s laughing at a joke I just told him…he’s all, “Carm…that was a HORRIBLE joke!”…I’m all, “I know, Mike…just thought it would make a good reaction shot…”

Ashton & Demi – look at em. I wanna be their friend! Who’dda thunk it? Not me! Probably not them, but I’m oooooh so happy for them! And I think Demi just took a picture of me! Hey Ashton – You guys are cute! No, that’s okay…I’ll stay over here! Catch’ya later!

That’s it for now – it took me forever to post all those pictures…it’s almost dinnertime!! LOL I love you – I really do…you can ask ANYONE! ~ Carm

Matt Damon Dumped Me in Vegas

April 30, 2010 at 5:14 pm (Entertainment, Humor, Random, Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Matt Damon Dumped Me in Vegas

So, I’m dreaming last night…

Apparently I lost like 100 pounds and was rockin this awesome flowy slinky red dress with some of the most FABULOUS shoes known to man and I had somehow landed a date with Matt Damon.

Nevermind the fact that we’re both married and I’m not even particularly “fond” of Matty…I’m just saying it was a dream and I have no idea how this came to be.

So the next thing you know we are walking down the Strip in Vegas. Me…looking all sexy in my slinky red dress with a waistline like I haven’t seen since high school when my grandma and I handmade my poodle skirt for the 50’s concert that I ROCKED IT IN and had a 27″waist…i digress…

To recap: Me = Sexy, HOT, Mouth Wateringly GORGEOUS. Matt = Dashingly handsome and when he looked at me his eyes lit up and he smiled HUGE.

So we go dancing and I noticed how he wouldn’t hold me really, really close. And then we were browsing through the shops at Caesar’s Palace and this old couple waves us over and asks Matt if he could go in and grab them something and so I sat with the lady and she says how suited we are for eachother…I’m watching him grab the items for the old couple and I lean over to the lady and say, “You know…that’s Matt Damon…”…she replies, “I know, dear. He’s handsome, isn’t he?”…I’m all…”He is, indeed!”. Matt comes out and I grab his arm as we cross the street and he shoots me one of his “I’m Matt Damon” smiles and it melts me and I smile back and then he takes off in a full on sprint and RUNS across the street like he’s Tom Cruise in “The Firm” where the entire last 35 minutes of the movie he’s like FULL ON BOOKIN’ it through the street trying to escape the MOB, only Matt is running away from me!

So he gets accross the street and steals a bike and starts riding his bike down the damn Las Vegas Strip and I’m standing there in the middle of the street just kinda looking as he disappears in the distance, still looking DAMN HOT in my flowy red dress. So I cross the street thinking, “Well…we were heading up to MGM, so I may as well go up there to see if he’s there waiting for me.”

So I wobble the 2 miles up the Strip to the MGM and about this time I wake up thinking, WTF! NO WONDER I DON’T LIKE THAT GUY!!!!!
