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 Ryan takes (@TheDebbyRyan) us through her typical day in this special behind the scenes look at 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,

A Jay for Everyone

**Congratulations Jodie, you will be getting your 2 Jac Vanek bracelets shortly!  Thank you to all who wrote in and told us about your best friends, it was so tough to choose!**

It's rare to find a friend like Jay, but when you can, it's something to be truly cherished. Is there a Jay in your life? Tell us about him (or her)! Keep it short or tell us everything (ok...maybe not EVERYTHING everything), and you can both win a limited edition 16 Wishes bracelet by Jac Vanek. Respond to this post and you're entered to win!



Today in Government class we learned all about the Cold War and it made me think about Abby & Krista.  It's just so irritating that they don't get along.  I'm sure they both have good reasons why they can't stand each other, but it's been nine years since they started feuding.  Enough already!

The weird thing is I think they'd actually like each other if they could just stop with the loathing.  They're girls.  They both love to do girly things.  Like shopping.

I vote for "detente."   It's pronounced "day-taunt" and it's how they ended the Cold War.  Here's the definition:  "The easing of tensions or strained relations between nations by agreements or understandings."  I think Abby & Krista need to ease up and understand each other.

If I was President, I'd make them sit in a room together and talk it out.  Or go shopping.

The Trouble with Sisters

Sisters are a pain in the neck. Trust me. I know what I'm talking about.
Look at me. I'm a freshman guy in the prime of teenagehood. When I started high school this year, my mom said, "Mike, the world is your oyster." Not sure what exactly she meant by that. Life is gross & slimy and you have to swallow it real fast and pretend you liked it because it was expensive?

I think she might have been saying, "Mike! Have fun!" I'd love to. But because my older sister Abby goes to the same high school, it gets complicated. She's such a drama queen! Right now, she's totally freaking out about her 16th birthday. It's next month and don't ask me what day because it's just one of those little details I don't want cluttering up the ol' grey matter.

I'm just a guy tryin' to have a good life. Is that too much to ask?
Rock on.
