Meeting "Deal or No Deal" model Patricia

First: No pictures

On Sunday, I had the opportunity to meet NBC's Deal or No Deal model and No. 9 case holder Patricia Kara at a Hollywood Show in Burbank. And I have to say that it was a great thing that I met her. I approached her toward the end of the convention and said, "Patricia is my middle name." And she asked, "What's your name?" I said, "Norma."

When she was about to leave she came over for a minute and said, "Good-bye Norma Patricia." I said, "Good-bye Patricia." And I added that I would continue to watch her on television. However, I thought to myself and said, "Every time that Howie Mandel says "Patricia, open your case" I will say, "Yeah, Patricia."

And finally I want to thank the people whom let me be there at the Hollywood Show. Your kindness is beyond words. In addition, thanks to Patricia Kara for stopping to talk to me for a minute. I will NOT forget it.

Cerritos' Vice President and Student Trustee

Here is a look at Cerritos College's newly elected Vice President Rosa Castaneda and Student Trustee Felipe Grimaldo. Grimaldo, a former marine can try to impress with his discipline. And Castaneda can do the same as the "Hillary Clinton" wannabe.

The marine man made have a bit of an advantage but let just see if he is not the same as former Vice President and Student Trustee Jason Macias. Perhaps he could be and that is a surprise. But like I said before I will not anticipate ANY change. And Castaneda is the second woman to be elected VP.

But in all honesty the woman has been afraid of running for President. And yet, they wonder why women struggle to be equal to men. But it all goes back to this quote that Franco was "qualified" to be that student body representative.

This two, along with President Oscar Franco will get nothing done. Knowing that there was only one person who ran for president and vice president Cerritos College's Student Body Elections came down to this: IT WAS A SHAM. But then that describes, the Associated Students of Cerritos College, huh?

Franco is Cerritos' new student president

Media Credit: Cerritos College's Student Activities Office

Oscar Franco is Cerritos College's new student body president. That means the salesman won the job. Well, Talon Marks, you got your wish, Franco is now the president. Now, just sit back and watch as he, along with the other student presidents have done nothing.

I mean when I was reading the Talon Marks editorial about how Franco was quote: "is qualified and has the making of a great representative of the student body..." I thought, "Isn't that what they have said about President Barack Obama?"

The difference between Franco and Obama is this: Franco was elected because of his salesman looks and Obama was elected because he was black. I mean, please. So, when you say "is qualified and has the making of a great representative of the student body..." you just joined every non-liberal newspapers on the planet Earth.

And just a thought of this, who are you, The Los Angeles Times? The truth be told no leadership is needed in the ASCC is make it better. If putting people in office what it takes to see what they can do, then they should have auditioned for "American Idol."

About turning 29

Hi everyone:

April 27 is next Monday and here I am looking toward turning 29. But I don't feel that old, ladies and gentleman because I am still young. There is nothing better to feel then to think that you are young.

So, what do I mean? I mean, that everything is okay. And in reality I age 500 years old every year. That means I'm actually 14,500 years old. And yet I look like this?

I want to be gorgerous for my personality

Here is a image of me in black and white for the last couple of blog entries you have seen them in color. I played with Photoshop just a bit and converted this picture to black and white.

With that said, here is a little something called: "Gorgerous Personality"

My only purpose in this life is to make you happy, if I have done that then I have a gorgerous personality.

There is only one thing to do for everyone of us who live on this earth, make others feel that they are special, attention-worthy, and unique because that will only enhance the friendship one has

I have people, I have fans, and if I make you laugh that to me is more than enough
I wanted everyone of us to remember me, trust me, and love me

If I have done anything to keep you in your mind I would hope that it is something I have done to affect you in a good way, I never look for the bad

There are times that I don't trust my intelligence but if I have done something to leave behind I only, in the end, it's for my gorgerous personality.

Thank you. It's short and sweet

Michele would have been 44 April 12

Hi everyone!

Just a couple of things that I forget to mention the last time. April 12 would have been Michele Cassiano's birthday. As you can see from below this is the Michele that I remember. It's hard to believe that it has been more than two years since she passed away. Yet, even as the days pass without her on this earth, I have remembered the lessons that I have learned from her; and that;s because of her.

What is it about her that I remember most? Everything! And yet, when she passed I cried. I let myself go and I remember the times that I had with her. I remember the time that she said that I should never leave her again because she could figure out how to shut the blinds, (automatically no less). I shared with her the time I met author Oriah in Anaheim.

I remember a lot. I will never forget her no matter what. THANK YOU MICHELE! Read more here.

And finally, yet another picture of mio, and as April 27 fast approaches I just have to remember, I am NOT getting old. It shouldn't matter if I'm 3,000 years old. On another note, there is this one person who keeps asking me, "What Madonna item don't you have?" It's simple: Madonna.

Fiery Redheads

First, I'd like to apologize, but I have been busy at the Aquarium of the Pacific this spring break and there was an incident that got my attention if you don't mind, I'd like to describe.

Fiery Redheads at least was out yesterday as a mother was battling with her daughter. Apparently the daughter was on bad behavior and I'm not kidding, the mother grabbed the child and threw her in the stroller.

My first reaction was, "Wow!" That all I could say. I mean I know that children five years old and up can be a pain in the ass. But think about is it worth it to mistreat them with at least 1,000 other people watching? I think not. However, there are a handful of parents don't care and will lash out.

There is a way to express herself in a more calm demeanor. If someone will lash out do it at home where others won't watch.

I'm just saying...

By the way, the little girl was a redhead but the red turned out more from her face.

Norma's poetry entry No. 2

Here is one of the latest poems that I have thoughts of and will now share with all of you:

Sometimes I think that there is nothing to live for
and yet, I look at myself and ask was it worth it
Pain and sorrow have left and return to me but the
question is how is it that I can afford it

Nobody thought that I would make it in life
No one fail to see that I had the will to survive
I had to deal with my own insecurities to want to
live that properous life

I look at myself and wonder how long can I live
How much can one take
I had my reasons to write, to think and to sing
my sorrows away
But if anyone didn't understand because they have
never live through abuse, anger and pain
I got down on my knee and ask God, "When will you take all this pain away"

He never answered, I had to look for it myself
every day and every night
I wasn't going to put up with all the shit without as so
much of a fight

I have live that long to write about my life in a book
because I want to experience the life that I know
I should have
But what can I teach people about me if I am only 29

I met people I love because of who, not what they are
Look at my mind not my body for the emotional scars
Everyday I fought to life that one thing I wanted the most

But some people thought that I have nothing to live for
because of all of the shit that make and went without the fear
of it because about being without it but did I have a choice?

If you have met me and now me to be kind that is the respect you get
for me in return, because the good thing about you is that you are a kind,
funny and your a pure indivdual soul.

There you go. Thank you.

And a note to everyone I have met: I sincere appreciate your kindness and ability to love me for me. That is the gift that you give me every single day I'm on this earth.

P.S. this week is spring break, I will write about things that happen.

P.S.S. I have accumlated more than 1,000 volunteer hours at the Aquarium of the Pacific so if you are there this week, so will I.

Norma's poetry entry No. 1

Hello everyone!
As promised I will begin sharing some poetry that I have in my "head" and so without much fanfare, distractions and regret here is one poem that I have had. I call this poetry, "Surviving Without You."

Most of the time I thought I was lost but I found myself again when I decided to wake up. Now, that I am awake I will try to make the most of the time on earth.

There are no certainties, there are no boundaries that one much cross in order to live.

But do what you can, do what you love and give. Now that I have lived on this earth, now that I have seen the best and the worst, I will try to make the most of that time.

Without you in it I thought I would not survive. But I have. Look at me, I'm alive and well. If you thought I wasn't going to make it then you can go to hell.

Wthout you I know who I am. I don't have time to see you. But I know one thing for certain, I can, and I will survive without you.

There. I did it. Don't worry all of the other poems will be much longer then this. But I will begin with some one that are important and reflective of me. I hope that you don't mind reading some very, very personal stuff and ideas.

That is what I hope to do. So...with that said, I want to thank you for the space and for the chance. That's all I ask.
