Dear Future Husband

Dear future husband,

We haven't met yet, but I know you're out there. The perfect somebody for me. If you are reading this, then you have taken my heart for what I hope will be forever. I know that sometimes that our relationship will be hard, and you might want to give up on me, but don't. Don't mistake my lack of wanting to display my affection for you publicly as a sign that I don't love you because I do, I'm just not that kind of girl, but you would know that. When I ask to be left alone the BEST thing for you is to leave me alone. It's not because I don't love you, I just like to be alone sometimes so please understand that. I love that you like to stay up with me all night and just stare at the stars and contemplate alien invasions, or why we haven't gotten our hands on a flying car like in the Jetson's cartoon.

Thank you for not thinking that I'm weird because I hide from lightning. Thank you for being honest with me even if it will hurt me. Thank you for watching Pretty In Pink with me for the 100th time. Thank you for abandoning being an adult and being a kid with me sometimes. Thank you for the beautiful children we will have. Thank you for thinking I'm even more beautiful without all of my make-up. Thank you for getting lost with me because we're both too stubborn to ask for directions. Thank you for putting the seat down so that I won't fall in when it's my turn. Thank you for ordering that pizza over the phone because I hate ordering over the phone. Thank you for asking me what's on my mind even when I won't admit that I have something on my mind. Thank you for not leaving when we argue. Thank you for not going to bed angry.

Thank you for taking out the garbage, and killing that spider. Thank you for the million laughs and smiles you put on my face. Thank you for being there to wipe my tears away. Thank you for letting me know that there is nothing to fear. Thank you for reassuring me whenever I need reassuring. Thank you for being that shoulder. Thank you for taking care of me when I'm ill. Thank you for laughing when I stuff tissues up my nose because I get sick and tired of wiping it. Thank you for the cards, kisses, and hugs. Thank you for coming to get me when my car won't start. Thank you for helping provide. Thank you for dreaming, believing, and seeing. Thank you for all of your funny and not so funny jokes. Thank you for having a sense of humor. Thank you for protecting. Thank you for your loyalty. Thank you for growing old with me.

Most of all, thank you for being the most wonderful and amazing husband that I could ever ask for.

PS. I'm sure I will be back to add more over the years. <3

How Do You Know This Movie Sucks?

Film Metro was gracious enough to provide 2 movie screening passes for me and a guest to see How Do You Know last Thursday night, and honestly, if I had paid to see this movie, I would have demanded a refund!

I didn't really know much about the movie before hand except the fact that Reese's Pieces (Reese Witherspoon) was in it, so I figured it would be a sure bet, and boy did I think wrong. The movie seemed to be all over the place. Paul Rudd's character was awful, and why on God's green earth would Jack Nicholson of all actors want to be in this movie? He can't be that hard up for cash. No, not even Reese Witherspoon could have saved this disaster of a movie. The only glimmer of hope for How Do You Know was non other than Owen Wilson's asshole character, Matty.

I fought desperately not to break one of my movie going rules which is to NEVER FALL ASLEEP DURING A MOVIE EVER. I thought that pulling out my cell (which we were advised not to do during the screening or we'd be kicked out of the viewing) and getting kicked out by the secret service of movie screenings would be a lot more interesting than this movie, but alas, I didn't.

So, if you're wondering, pondering, or on the fence about checking out How Do You Know, I say pass. Wait for one of those 3 day weekend showings on TNT or something. At least then the only thing you'd be wasting is your time, and not your money.

Oh, and here is the trailer:

Shenna's Top 10 Future Ex Husbands List

About 10 years ago I started calling Justin Timberlake my future ex husband why? Who knows, but it stuck. I mean it's pretty obvious that the chances of me ever marrying him is like next to NEVER, but in my fantasy world (in my head) EVERY and ANYTHING is possible. Now if you know me, you know that I have an insatiable appetite for the opposite sex, and thus, I am always on the prowl for the next future ex Mr. Shenna. So with the encouragement of my friend Romancia (@romancialove) I give you my top 10 list of my future ex husbands.

10. Chuck Bass
The Bass is new to the list. His upper east side pompous attitude gives me EVERYTHING I'VE EVER WANTED AND MORE (what can I say, I have a thing for massive douche lords)!!! All I can really say about him is... He's Chuck Bass!
Image Source

9. Zach Roerig/Matty/Peeta
  I made a poem about this dude and his eyes so blue. So glad he's still around on The Vampire Diaries for my, I mean our viewing pleasure. He "seems" so sweet, and well look at him! He's got that All American thing going on for him.
Image Source
8. Chace Crawford
Maybe it's because he bares a striking resemblance to ex #3, or maybe it's because he looks like the kind of dude that would let me braid his hair ( I'm also totes into dudes who would let me braid their hair). Whichever the case, dude has that unattainable high school jock crush worthy thing going on for him.
Image Source

7. Tom Cruise
Ah, Mr. Cruise. We have had a long journey together. You were my first love. My only love. I used to refer to myself as Mrs. Shenna Cruise, do you remember that? Of course you don't because that was totes in my fantasy land. Aside from his Oprah antics, and his marriage to Joey from Dawson's Creek *coughs*, he'll always be on my list. You had me at Legend.
Image Source

6. Brad Pitt
YESSSS LOUIS!!! You are the first person who I wanted to become my maker. You have like 30 kids now and that is why you are number 6 on my list (Shenna and kids just don't mix quite yet). I think I maybe in love with your girlfriend/baby momma sooooooo, 3some? Haha just kidding *coughs*.
Image Source
5. Gerard Butler
OH. MY. 300. ABS! How could I not have this man on my list?! His accent alone get's him a V.I.P. access  straight to my Victoria's Secret. And his arms, HARRY FREAKIN' POTTER TAKE ME NOW!
Image Source
4. Johnny Depp
 No matter if you're Jack, Edward, Gilbert, Wonka, or the Madd Hatter, you know you all can get it! I can't even express how talented this guy is. I have NEVER seen a Depp moving I haven't liked.
Image Source

3. Ian Somerhalder
Hard choice to put you all the way at 3, but your 2 predecessors and I have a much longer history. You Mr. with those "take me" eyes of yours, are the epitome of sexy, not for obvious reasons, but because you are a do-gooder. You actually care about things outside of your celebrity realm. You have the most sincere and beautiful aura about you (I know because I met him, and though briefly, I could feel it). Your laugh melts me into a puddle of wonder twin nothingness. You, Sir, are awesome. Thank you!
Image Source

2. Justin Timberlake
17 freaking years I have been crushing on this guy! I've had to battle through the Britney years, and the cutting off of the hair. I even stayed beside you when you used to wear those horrid bandannas. I've seen you in concert many times, and have yet to meet you. I feel like we are already married under common law, so when do I get my ring Mr. Timberlake?

Image Source
1. Harry Potter
Yes, ladies and gents, Harry J. Potter is my numero uno future ex husband. I know, I know, I'm a bit of a cougar, but I love him *tear*. And because our Potter ride is coming to an end next year, I had to put him first. POTTER NOOOOO!!!

Image Source
So that's it. That's my list. Who's on your list?

Ian Somerhalder Fans Take NOLA By Storm

This past Saturday, November 13, 2010, St. Tammany Humane Society held their first annual Unleashed Bash on the Bayou charity event in Louisiana. Although I wasn't able to attend personally (unless you count being there in spirit), my very dear friend and partner in crime Romancia (@romancialove) was able to give fans all around the world the best seats in the house all from the comforts of their homes via USTREAM live.

Attendees of this event were able to mix and mingle with none other than Mr. Ian Somerhalder himself. Yes, go ahead and fan yourselves if you need to. And as if that wasn't great enough in itself, about 40 generous people who donated $1,000 each were granted exclusive access to a champagne reception where they were able to get even more up close and personal with Ian. Mr. Somerhalder was gracious enough to come up to Romancia's computer that she had set up with USTREAM to tell all of his fans hello, and yes, there was a kiss blown. *dies at the thought* I admittedly did not catch it at first because I was busy moderating the USTREAM chat itself, but when I saw the video, OMP (oh my Potter)!!

During the main event Vaughn, the Executive Director of St. Tammany, introduced Ruthie (@tvdfansonline), to present the AH-MAZE-ING amount of money that you, the fans donated to Natalie's (@xVampDiariesx) Ian Somerhalder Birthday Project. The expression on Ian's face said it all, his fans are THE BEST!

The sole purpose for this event was to raise money so that St. Tammany Humane can continue to help the abandoned animals that they bring to their shelter. Please check out their site  to learn more about this amazing organization. 

I have included some pictures and video courtesy of Romancia so be sure to check them out below. I know all that attended had one of the best days of their lives, and I can't wait to join you all next year at the 2nd annual Unleashed Bash on the Bayou November 12, 2011!!! 

And do keep an eye out for more information on this event.

A Million Zillion Thanks To Sounds Under Radio

Earlier today I was handed a package by the mailman, and the very first thing that I noticed written at top left corner was, Sounds Under Radio. I got a little jiggy with it after I had the package in my hand, and decided not to open it until I could give it the proper attention as I was headed out to visit a friend in the hospital Needless to say when I finally returned back home I immediately opened up the envelope and took in all of its contents. The AH-MAZING members of Sounds Under Radio, Lang, Bradley, Sonny, and Doug had sent me not only an autographed copy of their CD Cinematica, but I also recieved an autographed poster, ANNNNND A FREAKIN' HAND WRITTEN MESSAGE IN A CARD!!!! You guys have NO idea how much I adore handwritten personalized messages.

I couldn't thank the guys enough which, I've probably tweeted them thank you's worth a lifetime, but again, THANK YOU LANG, BRADLEY, SONNY, AND DOUG SOOOOOO MUCH! A MILLION ZILLION TIMES OVER! And please if you are reading this check them out. I don't go out of my way to recommend bands or anything for that matter very often, but I PROMISE YOU you won't regret it.

Why I Rock

Last night I watched the Black Girls Rock awards ceremony on BET and I was so inspired by the messages that were given on the show that I decided to post about it (obvs since you are reading this).  

The 1 thing that really stood out to me was when they showed clips of celebrities explaining why they rocked, and it got me thinking... why do I rock?

I rock because I'm not afraid. I'm not afraid to feel, to love, and be loved. I'm not afraid of opinions, and naysayers. To laugh when nobody else is laughing. To smile when everything around me feels so chaotic. I'm not afraid to stand up for myself and for what I believe in. To dream, wish, and cry because sometimes you just need to let it all out. I rock because I like many other women, didn't always feel so confident in my skin, but I can say now without a doubt, that I LOVE ME FOR ME! 

So I guess you now know the reasons behind my Twitter handle, Eyemjusme66, and what I would like to know from you is, Why do you rock? No matter your skin color.

No Trash At The Bash

For the past couple of days some of my fellow Tweeters and I have been trying to help @romanicalove find the perfect semi-formal dress to wear to the St. Tammany's Unleashed "Bash on the Bayou" event hosted by Ian Somerhalder.

Image Source

As people started sending in links for dresses it became apparent very early on that some of our taste levels were better suited for those street walking professionals out there.

I think even the most liberal Lady of the Night would blush at the site of this dress at a semi-formal event.

Just when we thought that the above was the worst choice, we were hit with a life sized chiffon table napkin that was made into a "dress". 

And this thing below. What is it? I'll tell you what it is, it's hideous! And whoever is allowing this thing to be sold in their stores should live forever in lace and ruffle hell!!! *shudders*

I gave Romancia advice on what colors were better suited for her skin tone and blue being one of them, she decides she should go out dressed like a figure skater imitating a cloud, or The Little Mermaids natural habitat.

Now we get down to the nitty gritty. Romancia needs your help in deciding which out of these 7 dresses below would be best suited for the event next Saturday? Look on the sidebar and click on your choice. She will be revealing her choice via Twitter the night of the event so make sure you are following her at @romancialove if you want to see the outcome.


Nina Dobrev Short And Sweet AP Interview

Just a few minutes ago, Nina Dobrev, one of the stars of the hit CW television series The Vampire Diaries was interviewed by a "fan" and reporter for the Associated Press on a live stream for all of our viewing pleasure. I jotted down some things that she said, but particularly liked the one below on Katherine. I will say that when Nina mentioned trying grits, it just might have made my day!

On reasons why Katherine is the awesome mega BITCH that she is: "She Looks out for number 1, and it's only her. Next episode will explain why Katherine is the Selfish individual that she is."

*make sure you tune in tonight for an all new Vampire Diaries episode "Rose" @ 8est*

Rain Dance

26. Dance In The Rain

When it rains, do you find yourself running from the rain or, do you embrace it? These are the very questions I asked myself while I was coming up with number 26 on my Life List (Bucket List).

All of my life, I've been taught by society, friends, and by family that rain is something you hide from. "Why would you want to be wet?" "It will ruin your hairdo!" "You'll get sick!" Other than the eventual uncomfortable wet feeling afterward, rain really isn't something to be feared.

Being the woman that I am, I decided to challenge myself against all of the naysayers of rain, and not only go out and get wet in the rain, but dance in it, drink it, laugh in it, and ultimately sing in it.

When the PERFECT opportunity presented itself a month and a half ago, I walked out the door, raised my hands to the sky and started twirling. Eventually I started laughing in pure jubilation with the sun shining down on my face. And then I opened my mouth to taste the rain which doesn't taste like anything at all. I sing... "the hills are alive with the sound of music..." (I had a Julie Andrews moment). The rain started to come down heavily and I felt like maybe I was having a moment with the Gods or Mother Nature herself so I started dancing. I truly felt like I was transported into another time. When I had enough; when I felt that number 26 had been fulfilled as best as it could, I stopped and just stood there. I was back. I walked back into the house, grabbed a towel and took a shower.

I realize as I'm becoming more educated on living a natural lifestyle, I'm starting to see the world with new eyes. Everything I thought that was wrong, out of the norm, or weird (can you believe me thinking something is weird? yeah, I know!) has become so deliciously right.  I don't normally ask people to take my advice because hey, it's your life to live and I certainly or anyone for that matter can't tell you how to live it, but if all you ever do in your life is take the time out to stop what you're doing and go out and dance in the rain, I promise you, it will be so worth it.

16 Reasons Why You Should Own The Vampire Diaries Soundtrack

Ever the procrastinator, I had been putting off purchasing The Vampire Diaries Soundtrack because I'm a turd sometimes. I was fortunate enough to receive via UPS yesterday (Friday) my very own copy from one of my dearest Twitter friends.

As I was listening to each track, all I could think of was why hadn't I gotten my hands on it sooner? Realizing I am talking to myself in my head, I answered myself right back, because "YOU ARE A PROCRASTINATOR!"

Some songs took me back to some of my favorite episodes, some I bobbed my head along to while reading The Hunger Games, and 1 downright had me sobing for reasons I will explain below.

So here we have it, 16 reasons why I think you should purchase if you haven't already, The Vampire Diaries Soundtrack

Image Source

01. Stefan's Theme -Michael Suby
This is the very song that plays in my head when I think of The Vampire Diaries. In fact, I think this song should have been called The Vampire Diaries song. It has no words, just purely instrumental and takes me back to the very first episode where it all began. 

02. Running Up That Hill -Placebo
Placebo, the band who graced one of my other favorite soundtracks, Cruel Intentions with "Every You Every Me" does it again. This song almost brings out my primal side (maybe it's the drums).

03. Currency Of Love -Silversun Pickups
This would be one of those songs I was bobbing along to when I was reading The Hunger Games. At first I was like, "This kinda reminds me of Jimmy Eat World" but alas it is not. This particular song doesn't bring up any memories of past episodes, but I still like. 

04. Hammock -Howls
Another head bobbing song. The singers voice is kind of well, seducing (sexy). If any guy wants to howl at the moon with a voice like his, by all means go right on ahead. When he sings tastes I *died zombie style with a bullet to the head* (I've already *died* too many times so now I'm a zombie just so ya know).  

05. Sleep Alone (909S In The DarkTimes Mix) -Bat For Lashes
This song reminds me of floating. Don't worry, I don't get why it reminds me of floating either. All I know is that sleeping alone is NOT so bad sometimes. 

06. Bloodstream (Vampire Diaries Remix) -Stateless
Oh, Potter where do I begin with this little number? This song I refer to as the hot dirty sex song. This is THAT song, yup, yes it is, AMEN! *fans self* So uhh, where was I? The dude singing the song right, his voice OMFP (Oh My Freakin' Potter) is so sexy and haunting. "I think I might have inhaled you" what? I wanna marry him just because of this song. He could be short, balding, with no teeth for all I know, but you guy, you need to come marry ASAP! This song makes me want to go out and seduce every one, YOU TOO!   

07. We Radiate -GoldFrapp
I've been a fan of GoldFrapp for a little while now and her songs have never disappointed me. This is a good track to get ready to. Sing and dance in the mirror like nobody is watching. You know we've all done it before. 

08. Obsession -Sky Ferreira
This song immediately makes me want to kick some ass, and again, I have no clue why. Perfectly explains my feelings for all the male characters on the show.

09. Head Over Heels -Digital Daggers
The seduction song. This song reminds me of the manipulative awesome that is Katherine Pierce/Petrova 

10. Down -Jason Walker
*sad faces all around* who can forget this episode? This song breaks my heart every single time I hear it. Right about now I'm listening to it and I feel like I need a hug. "I don't want to hear the sound of losing what I never found" :(

11. Beauty Of The Dark - Mads Langer
And the shit hits the fan episode. What? Why? How? Stefan and Damon vampire's? No way? Come on Elena he's old enough to be your great great grandaddy. "What are you?!"

12. Cut -Plumb
The most beautifulest of beautiful moments EVER in the history of TV hands down! When it gets to the part where the singer is like "I AMMMMMMMMMMM NOOOOOOOOOOOT ALOOOOOOOOOONE" just pierces my soul. Not gonna lie, I wanted to clunk Elena over the head with day old rye bread when she was getting it in with Stefan cuz it totes should have been Stefan and I of course!      

13. All You Wanted -Sounds Under Radio feat. Alison Sudol of A Fine Frenzy
*sigh* it's really kind of hard to explain what I feel about this song. Previously I had blogged about how I was so in love with the band and how I loved the song, but I would be doing the band and the song a HUGE injustice with such few words. When the cd player finally reached number 13, I smiled to myself and laid out on my bed staring at the ceiling taking every single piece of the lyrics to heart. I found myself mouthing the words as I did last Saturday while they performed here in Miami. Emotions started creeping up inside of me as puddles of tears formed on my face. Before I knew it, I was crying uncontrollably (I'm talking full out Timmy just fell in the well kinda tears here people). I can only say this about one other song in my life, and that is "All By Myself" because damn it Celine, that song is just downright depressing! Why does this song stir up such emotion in me? This is the very reason why I love music so much. Though my reasons behind my total meltdown over this song is unbeknown to me, I love that it made me feel. Maybe there was something deep down inside of me that needed to come out (insert your exorcism jokes here). So above all other songs on this soundtrack, "All You Wanted" is THE BEST of them all! And to Sounds Under Radio, if you are reading this, thank you for making me feel. 

14. The Fellowship -The Smashing Pumpkins
This song reminds me of an old school Atari video game (I still have one. DUCK HUNT). You really can't go wrong with The Smashing Pumpkins. 

15. On Melancholy Hill (Feed Me Remix) -Gorillaz
Instead of fist bumps, this gets some fist pumping action. I would have never thought that this was Gorillaz if I didn't actually read the back of this cd. It totes cute and kinda reminiscent of The Never Ending Story to me. 

16. 1864 -Michael Suby
Somethings coming to eat you. RUUUUUUUUUUN!  If this piece had lyrics that what it would be.

We Crashed, We Fondled (some more so than others), I Managed To Save Matty/Peeta

Unless you're living in another universe, then you know a couple of Vampire Diaries fans and I planned, and yes, we succeeded in crashing the Masquerade party in Mystic Falls, Virginia.

While I'm still getting myself out of my Matty/Peeta ninja saving mode, here are a few pics, and videos that were shot in honor of the debauchery that took place tonight.

The lovely @vampdiaries711showed us that not only are her eyes stunning, but so is her mask!
I don't mess around when it comes to my Matty/Peeta! 
The ALWAYS hilarious @mak75231 clearly had other intentions for the Masquerade.
So @krysmamo  pulled out all of the stops. She def would have given Kat a run for her money in 1864.

Apparently @romancialove gets around Mystic Falls ....

I don't think Jer Bear is quite ready for this.

Not only is she laying in the most sexiest man-sandwhich, she get's bitten too! But by which one?

Jer Bear is like wtf? lol

Elena not only has to watch out for Kat, but @romancialove  is also on the prowl.

SOMEBODY COME GET HER! No, really get her away from my man!

I knew she was evil from the day she first Tweeted me!

So you see, while everyone else was worried about Katherine, us girls were having the time of our lives (insert Dirty Dancing song here). I can't wait to crash another shindig with all of you again, and knowing Mystic Falls, it won't be too long. Hey who's down for a car wash sans Salvatore bro clothes?

 Next mission should you choose, pillage the Salvatore Boarding House village!

*DISCLAIMER* No vampire's, witches, or werewolves were harmed while making this blog, though I can't say the same for that one chick who got the ax.

xOxO's with a side of fist bumping to you all!
