Birthday Fairies Unite

Who here thinks Celeste should be able to blog if she wants to?  It's a free universe, right?  If human beings can speak their minds, I can too.

But the comments are pouring in from my fellow magical beings.  (You, dear human readers, can't see those comments because they're written in invisible type, which also bugs me.)  They think I need to be a little more discrete.  More mysterious.

For instance, they don't want you to know how much Birthday Fairies like me love pizza.  They're afraid if you humans knew that we crave the cheesy tomatoey bready goodness of a perfect pie, you'd try to bribe us with it.

I think a simple warning will suffice:

Please do not leave a pizza under your pillow along with your Birthday Wish.  it's messy and won't get you anything you want.  Even from your parents.

Thank you.  That is all.

Parents from Another Planet

Sometimes I think I'm adopted.  Ted, my lab partner from freshman bio, is adopted.  Nobody knew because he never talks about it and he looks EXACTLY like his parents.   Really.  You know that website where you can take two people's pix and do this digital mashup and come up with what their child would look like?  If you did that with Ted's mom & dad, you'd get Ted.  Glasses & all.

One time I did that with pix of me and Logan but the baby was kind of unattractive so I deleted it.

With me and my parents, it's crazy -- we look kind of alike, but emotionally and everything, we're completely different.  I'm not even sure we share any DNA -- except the basic stuff that makes you a human instead of a chimp,  I don't even think we speak the same language.  Sometimes when I talk, they just stare at me, like I just switched to Swahili or something.  Occasionally, they get it when I speak slowly enough.  It's exhausting.

That's why I made it one of my 16 Wishes.  When I'm sixteen, my parents will finally understand me.

A gal can dream.

Love you!

Debby’s Sweet Revenge

Debby Ryan (@TheDebbyRyan) gets back at director Peter DeLuise for a tough day of filming 16 Wishes (@16Wishes), which will premiere on the Disney Channel on Friday, June 25 at 8/7 central.


Oh Brother!

Sometimes I wish my brother would get lost.  I mean it.  Really lost.  Like in a forest or something.  One of those forests with trees that come alive to grab kids like him, then holds him until he cries like a baby and apologizes for every completely lame thing he's ever done to embarrass his older sister.

I know -- you think I'm being mean.  But you don't know what it's like to live with him!  He has this stupid toy guitar he got when he was 9 and he carries it around the house all the time.  At the most random moments, like when you're putting on mascara, he comes up behind you and does this ear-splitting rock star imitation making you shove that wand right into your cornea.

I had to wear an eye patch to Homecoming!

Now you know why I want him to get lost.  Not forever, maybe.  Just until my 16th birthday.  I don't want Duffus and his Toy Guitar Band to ruin my Sweet Sixteen party.

Maybe you have a sibling who drives you absolutely crazy.  Feel free to vent here.

Love you!


Debby Spikes It

My BFF is a guy

Girls are fickle.  (Love that word.  Rhymes with pickle.  Heehee.)  One minute they loathe you but change your shoes to some designer brand and they cuddle right up.  That's why my best friend forever is a guy.

Jay Kepler.  The most loyal, constant, dependable, sometimes dorky friend I could ever have.  We have fun no matter what we're doing.  Just last week we laughed ourselves sick while simultaneously studying for a history test and baking chocolate chip cookies.  Or maybe all the cookies we ate made us sick.

Just because we're best friends, doesn't mean we share everything.  He can't stand the color pink and I can't stand that t-shirt he wears that says "Save the Muskrat!"  But he has other fine qualities that make up for his lack of fashion sense.

He plays a mean game of foosball and never just lets me win.
He's good at sports but doesn't let them take over his life.
He texts me in the morning just to say hi.
He'll stay on the phone with me all night if I'm feeling sad.

He's awesome.  I think I'll keep him.

Love you,

I <3 Logan Buchanan!

I've decided to make an addition to the dictionary.  I'm pasting a pic of Logan Buchanan next to the word "dreamy."  And "perfect."  And "hot."  And maybe  "blathering idiot" because that's what I turn into every time I see him.

Logan Buchanan is the finest male human I have ever laid eyes on.  I've been totally crushing on him ever since sixth grade when my mom made me take saxophone lessons.  Do you know how heavy those things are?  The case alone weighed more than I did!  So it was inevitable that I'd be lugging that behemoth to the band room (which, insanely, is in the basement of our school) and trip and fall and land right on top of Logan.

I chipped a tooth and looked so ridiculous I pretended to be sick so I could stay home for three days.  I finally wore my dad down with a barrage of begging and tears so he'd pay to have the dentist fix it.  When I came back to school with my shiny new tooth, Logan actually noticed.

I stopped playing the saxophone.

I never stopped loving Logan Buchanan.

I think I'll make him one of my 16 Wishes.

Love you!


Magical Beings Have to Eat

The life of a magical being isn't all glass slippers and yellow brick roads.  True, we don't have to contend with transportation issues, like freeway gridlock.  Being able to just flutter your eyelashes and show up on the other side of town is very helpful when you've got a tight schedule to keep.

Maybe I should explain something about who I am.  I'm part of a whole class of magical beings:  godmothers, genies, guardian angels, fairies of every color & creed.

Some of us are famous, like that ball gown wearing diva Glinda, and others prefer to stay anonymous.  Some have wings, some live in bottles, some use a wand, others have a signature wink or blink that sets their magic in motion.

I take a more simple approach and it all starts with a List.  There's just something so compelling about a person wanting something so badly, she writes it down.

Telling someone -- even a piece of paper or a blog -- what you want is the first step toward having your wish come true.

Come on.  Tell me just one wish.

Gotta run!

Meet my neighbor, Krista

I want to be excited.  I really do.  My 16th birthday is getting closer and it's supposed to be the most perfect, amazing day of my life.  And then I think of Krista Cook.  GRRR!!!

Krista Cook is my mortal enemy and I don't even know why.  When we were 7 years old, she suddenly decided to ruin my life.  It's ALL she does!  All day, everyday, she lives to torture me!

And then, every year around this time, it gets worse.  Because Krista Cook and I have the same birthday.  You heard me:  we celebrate the day of our birth on the exact same day!  We're both turning sixteen and we're both planning Sweet Sixteen parties and I just know she'll do everything in her power to ruin it for me.

It's so wrong on so many levels.

I wish some Birthday Fairy would just come along and zap her.

Love you!


Abby’s 16 Wishes

Hey everyone!   I am SO excited.  Summer is coming and that means IT'S ALL BEGINNING! The official countdown to my 16th birthday, which I affectionately refer to as The Best 16th Birthday in the History of 16th Birthdays!

My name is Abby Jensen -- or as my name will appear on my new driver's license, Abigail Louise Jensen.  EEEEeeeeee!  I can hardly wait to drive and have freedom and privacy and all the other things I wrote down on my Wish List.

I started it when I was 7 and it's taped to the inside of my closet door.  "Abby Jensen's 16 Wishes."  Sixteen very specific wishes I'm hoping will come true as soon as my big day comes. My brother Mike says I'm delusional to dream so big, but he has no idea what a girl like me is capable of.

I hope you'll bookmark my blog and check back for updates on my plans for my Sweet Sixteen party.  My best friend Jay is going to be there.  He's a total sweetheart and I know you're going to love him.  I've invited some really amazing people too, like Debby Ryan and Jean-Luc Bilodeau (such an awesome name, right?)

I've got SO much more to tell you, so stay tuned.

Love you!  Abby
