so how about that one tree FREAKIN hill!? huh? such a good episode tonight. chad finally cut his hair and it really looked good, especially when he did that thing with his eyebrow... and james lafferty is just growing up right before my eyes. tonight made me realize all of the things i would do to that boy. seriously. go catch some screen caps and argue with me...... HA, and props to mesmerizd, the only person who can make fun of my one tree hill night parties and get away with it! ♥
i am so sick and tired of hearing about james frey's "made up memoir". it disgusts me. a million little pieces WAS ARGUABLY THE BEST BOOK I'VE EVER READ. it is beyond inspirational - it gives insight into a world i would never have experienced otherwise, a world which is sadly plaguing the lives of so many people in our society. addiction. the book captured me from page one, and i didn't put it down until i finished it. i am so tired of people questioning james' credibility. as far as the general public are concerned, whether his novel is one hundred percent true or not is TOTALLY TRIVIAL.
people have no concept of reality. we're all biased by our own emotions. the way i recall an event and the way you recall the same event differ based on our predispositions, our feelings throughout the event, and so much else. who is to judge "reality"? this man was on drugs so much so that he was told he should be dead, and that if he used again he would no doubt die. period. who the fuck are you to perceive his reality through this time in HIS life? who are you to tell him that certain things COULDN'T HAVE happened? no one. how dare you.
james admits to fabricating his novel. guess what, life's not a fairy tale, not even one about drugs that ends with sobriety. and it's not a movie, or a novel, either. this was his life, and he needed to turn it into something people would want to - nay, COULD, read. if he did so by saying that he cut his cheek instead of the area on the inside of his mouth between his chin and bottom lip, I'M FUCKING OKAY WITH THAT. and you should be too. "oh, it just put me off, i couldn't even finish the book." good, you don't deserve to read the rest of this book, thank you for contributing to his salary, and SHUT THE FUCK UP. also, think of all that he was forced to cover up concerning leonard. there are limits he simply could not push, and i am prepared to accept that.
I'M GOING TO TELL YOU ALL A TRUE STORY! when i was five, my mom put pink eyeshadow on me, dressed me in a an adorable multicoloured striped dress, and we went on a road trip to a country music concert an hour and a half away. on the way we stopped at mcdonalds, where i ate chicken nuggets. finally at the country music concert, i had the best time of my life. my mom and i danced and sung all day and had an amazing time. after the concert, i met one of my idols (at the time). i had my picture taken with her, and she signed it. i was absolutely smitten. i've wanted to be a singer ever since.
okay, now the truth is that my mom is a health freak and hardly let me eat mcdonalds EVER. so, we really didn't go to mcdonalds before that concert, and i really didn't eat chicken nuggets. do you feel let down? well, YOU SHOULDN'T. why? because it's not important. you got the jist of that story, you picked up what i was putting down, and whether or not i ate at mcdonalds is such a ridiculously stupid thing to dwell on, i trust that you wouldn't discredit my entire story, or the heartfelt emotion i put into it, just because of that small fucking detail.
oprah, thursday, 4pm. be there.
