Helping One of Our Own

I know that we are not active on our blog anymore so I'm hoping that we still have enough friends for the word to get out. I just received news from Susie that just breaks my heart. A lot of you know that we stepped away from the blog when Susie moved back home to help take care of her mother before she passed away. Afterwards, she was kicked out of her home by her step-father and moved in with her grandmother. She has been helping take care of her grandmother, as well as working as hard as possible to just keep the wolves from the door. Last night her grandmother kicked her out and has now made Susie homeless. As hard as it is to imagine, she has nowhere to go. She has no other family and few friends in the area. Everyone knows that she is welcome with me but I also live 6 hours away now. Most people would be packing up as much as possible and leaving- just going to wherever they could. Right now Susie does not have this option. She does not have the money to be able to leave her job at this exact moment. We all know how hard it is sometimes to just make ends meet. She is in a horrible position, one that is hard to understand until you live it.

So what am I asking from you? I want your good thoughts and prayers, your sympathy and support. And if possible, I want your donations. At this point a few dollars from each of you could help her so much. So if you're able and willing please send donations via paypal to If you'd like to send a check please DM me on Twitter @AJPattz and I will take care of the details.

Stop SOPA and PIPA

Everyone who owns a blog, who reads a blog, who gets information for the web, or just likes to watch crazy videos on YouTube should be aware of what our government is trying to pass with both SOPA and PIPA. If either of these bills are passed the internet as we know it would be over. Freedom of expression would be suppressed. Freedom of speech would be diminished. These bills would be detrimental to the development of new technologies or hey even the next Facebook (maybe even the current Facebook, who knows?)

Take a moment to view the video below to learn more about SOPA and PIPA.

For Susie~

Her Journey's Just Begun
Her Journey's Just Begun 
Don't think of her as gone away, 
her journey's just begun, 
Life holds so many facets, 
this earth is only one, 
Just think of her as resting, 
from the sorrows and the tears, 
In a place of warmth and comfort, 
where there are no days or years, 
Think how she must be wishing, 
that we could know today, 
How nothing but our sadness, 
can really pass away, 
And think of her as living, 
in the hearts of those she touched, 
For nothing loved is ever lost, 
and she was loved so much. 

I found this poem and wanted to share it here. Yesterday I received the news that Susie's mother had passed away. This was a moment that we had been dreading. No one is ever prepared for the passing of a loved one, no matter how long you have to prepare yourself. For myself, my heart is hurting for my best friend but I know her pain is more. I want to dedicate this post to Susie. She has been strong and courageous during the last year. She has sacrificed so much to help care for her mother and I am so thankful that she is my friend. We should all be so lucky to have someone like her in our lives. Love you doll.

Pimping my other blog

Yeah yeah, I know I'm not posting over here all that often but I'm going to take a minute of everyone's time to pimp my personal blog, If U Seek Aimee. Along with sometimes very random little comments that take up a complete blog post I have also started reviewing books as well. The genre's range from YA & Teen, to Historical Romances, and everything in between. Do me a favor and take a look- the reviews are pretty short and sweet but I hope I'm able to give everyone a peek into the book and let ya know if i've enjoyed it or hated it. If you have any recommendations for what I should read hop on over and leave a comment. Thanks for your time. Hope everyone is enjoying some no-snow weather (I know I am) and is surviving the Twilight Drought- although I recently saw there's a story at TwiCrack Addict about some pictures released of the honeymoon cottage, even though I confess I didn't read it as I'm trying to stay completely pure for Breaking Dawn.

Be Safe~

Kristen's Vogue Spread and the Twilight Stars go POP

Kristen Stewart is gracing the cover of Vogue magazines February issue, in stores now. These are much different from other spreads of hers I've seen before. I think you can tell that the roles she has been taking on(Meet the Rileys, The Runaways) have allowed her to really blossom in front of the camera. The article is smart and if you're a fan of KStew then its a must read. Click my favorite pictures from the spread to check out the article.

I like these pics for several reasons. She looks different, not at all like herself, but in a good way. Agree? Disagree?

Some other interesting Twilight stars news...

A New York painter named Richard Phillips is giving Hollywood a Warhol revision! He does pop art and his newest exhibits, called Most Wanted feature Young Hollywoods brightest sought after stars including Rob, Kristen, and Dakota...Check out the rest of the gallery by clicking on the pics!

Honestly I don't really like this one. His scruff is off and his lips aren't right, but the artist got the eyes down!
Dakota looks pretty good. Once I again I feel like the artist missed something but got the eyes just right.
Kristen on the other hand is perfect. The hair,the face, the intense gaze...a perfect representation!

Mermaids Not Always A Good Thing: Susie's Review of Lost Voices

Lost Voices (Lost Voices, #1)Lost Voices by Sarah Porter

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

As I first started reading this novel, I fell in love with the premise of the plot. The author uses her skills to create a fascinating new myth on the creation of mermaids that I enjoyed. The main character,Luce,is strong in her convictions and her choices whether or not they go against the ancient laws. I felt close to both her and the mermaid queen at first. Sadly the plot falls short. I understand the author wants to immerse the reader in the aquatic beauty and terror that it takes to be a mermaid, but I feel it drags on. The book as a whole reads like a dying pulse. There is so much detail and (I feel) repetition between the action that with each important plot event I felt less and less moved by it. So by the time one of the mermaids die, not only was it predictable but I felt no emotion towards her death(although her burial scene was more moving). Not one tear fell. The last few chapters brought me back to the story as Luce became more rebellious and the tribe reached its breaking point, but the end result was sadly missing something that I can't put my finger on. Unfortunately this tale of tails gets 2 1/2 apples.
