Happy birthday, Liz!

*cue rant*

Whoever thought this was ever going to work was obviously a very optimistic person. Wishful thinking.

This physically hurts me. PHYSICALLY. HURTS. ME.

Whilst casually browsing through my tweets last night I noticed something. Something that made me a very unhappy bunny. I started to panic, as the tale began to unravel, and I came to this conclusion...Glee had recreated Make 'Em Laugh.

My first reaction was one of disgust. Then of sheer fear. I really did not want to see this. But I gave into temptation, and finally combed YouTube...and the video above is what I saw.

Poor Donald will be doing back-flips in his grave.

Ugh...I need to go watch some stellar classic movies to take my mind off this monstrosity.

*rant over*

Quote Of The Day!

From Julie Andrews (just because my singing teacher was talking about her today and she is currently creeping my mind singing 'The Sound Of Music'):

Quote Of The Day!

I'm in a Gatsby mood-so a bit of F. Scott.

'Cut out all these exclamation points. An exclamation point is like laughing at your own joke.'

Mr. Fitzgerald just told me to cut the exclamation marks. I'll never use an exclamation mark again.

Quote Of The Day!

I've used this quote a million and one times before-but it's so perfect for the occassion!

'A kiss is a lovely trick, designed by nature, to stop words when speech becomes superfluous.'

Happy Valentine's Day!

I believe Valentine's Day is a celebration of people's love for one another-and that doesn't have to be love of the romantic kind! So go tell someone you love them!

This is a little video I made of some of my favourite (ahem, 'real-life'. My favourite fictional couples are coming soon!) couples. And I promise-they're all uber adorable! Hope you enjoy it!

Oh! I should also say happy 20th birthday to my big brother! He's now one fifth of the way to being 100 years old. WOAH.

Oh. I forgot to mention-my brother is Billy Joel.

Evil Songs-La Vie En Rose (And Niamhy Sneakily Advertising Her YouTube Channel)

Edith Piaf's voice is truly unique. No-one else can sing this song the way she does. You just become enchanted with it, and can't stop listening! Well, eventually, you must walk away from it, and do something productive with your day.
But the song simply won't leave you. It follows you around. Stalks you. Corners you. You try to run, but you simply can't! You're caught, trapped! The only thing left to do is...


I made this video, as you can probably tell (it's an Audrey tribute, but Edith is playing in the background). FAR from professional! Haha!

Quote Of The Day (and Happy Belated Birthday, Clark Gable)!

Um...I sort of forgot Clark's birthday yesterday. Oh dear.

'Hell, if I'd jumped on all the dames I'm supposed to have jumped on, I'd have had no time to go fishing.'

Quote Of The Day!

Please excuse the lack of posts lately. I'm laden with school work-I apologise wholeheartedly. This is from Debbie Reynolds:

'I miss the movies. Still, I understood that my kind of movie has had its day. I thought it was over for me.'
