You won't regret having worked too hard, but you will regret not having worked hard enough.  
I've been trying to live on those words for a few weeks now... but it hasn't really sunk in.  This week is going much better so far, and all too soon I'll have disappeared almost completely.  I HAVE to study like I've never studied in my entire life, nor will ever study again.  Just until the end of July, and I hope you'll all hang in there and forgive me for not commenting on every entry.  It's just not possible right now :( .... of course I'll be checking in! so ya'll behave yourselves ya hear? (yes dayweletgo and sissa - I'm lookin at you two in particular!!!)  ... (as well as those of you out of town and on summer vacation! beware the idle hours that lead to mischief!)  ::wink::wink::

I know I haven't posted in a Loooooooooong while, and it will likely be a month and a half before I post again, (ok, that's WORST case scenario, but very likely the case) so I tried to make today's picspam really wonderful. I hope I succeeded! *fingers crossed*

Yes, that's a new header!! lol.. I couldn't resist... I LOVE that particular photoshoot ...sigh... those eyes... I may bring the other one back later though... it had a soft, calming effect on me.

There isn't much going on with me :)  ... just mailed about 40 thank you cards today (FINALLY!) so now I can REALLY concentrate on my work.... and that's about it! lol, yes, very boring life right now :D 

Since I really don't have much to say, I guess we'll just get on with the picspam!! WOOHOO!!!  (oh! but first! a shout out to newbie roxierocks5!! welcome to LJ lil Jane!!!)

First we start with VENICE PART TROIS!!!! (part trois? you ask.. but where are Part un and Part deux? well, big sissa Megs (maggiesheridan) posted them!! If you haven't already GO check them out! SO AWESOME!!)  

lol... how much do you want to bet that cameraman/woman just about fainted at this look?

Hehe... reassuring us that all's well?

Hey! I was kidding! no really... they don't cut people's heads off anymore Stephen! ... of course I'm sure!

Or.... am I? muahahaha!

More venice!!

OMG!! She almost fell!! thank heavens they caught her!! ... looks scary though :-/

WOOSH! what a shot!

Helen playing with her hair...

Helen arranging her hair part deux...

Helen arranging her hair part trois... (don't photographers know they're supposed to WAIT until she's done! yeesh people!)

Helen arranging her hair part quatre!

hehe... yes dearie, your bra strap is showing! she's SO cute!  and that's it for Venice 2006!

Just a couple from CineVegas!!  Because you know I can't get through a Helen spam without AT LEAST one Helen/Taylor pic!!

and Helen looking lovely and radiant on her own...

This is a relatively new set from March 2007 of Helen, and I quote, "leaving a meeting" (no idea!)  I had seen a few WITH watermarks, but here's a few more and all without those ugly marks! yay! :D

ok girls, he's not THAT cute!

Awwww!! Only Helen is classy enough to WAVE to the paparazi!


not yet.....

Still not yet...

Tada!!  ... (he's looking at the paper.. right? ;) wouldn't that be awful! If you were caught on film oogling Helen's assets!?!? LOL!! 

(YES, I called them "assets" ... so I'm a straight-laced, uptight conservative! so what!? :D MUAHAHA!)

That purse should be taken to a remote corner of the deepest darkest woods and shot, so as to put it out of its sad existence.   (was that a little too sadistic?  *evil grin*) FINE, then it should be sent back in time to the 80s where its family is... poor little lonely purse lost in the 21st century :( ... better?

But Helen clearly OWNS in that dress and shoes!!! *DIES*

Anyone else curious to know what she's saying? My! what an expression!! That's our Dame!

The End.    

sigh.... I feel like that was too short. :(  

I hope everyone has a FABULOUS June and July!!!! Remember I'll be checking in on all you fun and naughty people!!! :D

Oh, thank God, you're alive! I was worried there for a while! Love the new header; I swear I go brain dead for a few seconds whenever I stare...into...her...eyes...

I HEART the pics from Venice. Helen looks so amazing, all tanned and sparkly. She's a vision in white -- actually, come to think of it, she's a vision in any color and I envy her. And your captions are a riot in and of themselves!
LOL! oogling Helen's assets! Can you blame the guy?! Those Mill Valley pics make me think of that Will & Grace episode where Grace wears the hydra bra to enhance her "assets" and Will is surprised when he sees her and says, "Hello Kitty."

Too short? Well, you can never get too much of Helen and she always leaves you wanting more. What a tease.

Best of luck with the studying! Here's lookin' at you, kid!
screen_queen: Beauty - young Helenscreen_queen on June 13th, 2007 03:07 am (UTC)
YES! I'm HERE!!! just... sort of drowning in thousands of rules of law .. hehe. :D So sweet of you to worry!!! I could just HUG YOU!!
Oh I know.. hypnotic aren't they? lovely eyes!
I haven't seen that episode of Will & Grace but that is a FUNNY FUNNY show! I don't watch too much tv anymore, which, i SUPPOSE isn't a bad thing, but I miss it!!

LOL! Helen-the-tease? Hehe, even if she doesn't do it on purpose one really never CAN get enough!!

So, milady, do we call you Jeannie? :D you're going to have to help me out here!! I mean, after comiserating over our eternally insane families I really should know what you call you!!

Hope you're doing well!!!
(Anonymous) on June 13th, 2007 04:05 am (UTC)
...And what nice assets they are! ;-) (I also really like her shoes from the March 2007 pics - they're rather stylish). Thanks so much for all the pictures!!!!

I absolutely love the comments you added to the Venice pics. You had me in absolute stitches of laughter - however did you match those expressions so perfectly!?! And how adorable is she dropping her purse and then making those faces!! She looks beautifully sparkly and radiant in that series of photos.

Hope all the work's going well. Remember balance is important too! You can't study 24/7, so make sure you give yourself plenty of breaks/time to keep yourself sane!! GOOD LUCK!

Girl! Thanks for the subject quote... so true! *sighs*

Thanks for the photos, the captions & your comments. Totally priceless! *huggles you*
I so love the second set of venice photos, so natural and so cute (ok, not cute the fall... but look at the hair how it looks when she nearly does! and how she uses her hand to make it look fine... duh! obviously the photographers take photos!)
Oh! that was a meeting?! With a painting under her arm? And such grace to go on waving to paparazzi! *yay* That was a lesson that we shall not forget *hehehe*
That last dress was quite cool! where was that? (and who is that other woman? lol)

I can say that I will totally understand the fact you do not comment, that you do not even read or that you don't even come up for air in the internet. *hugs* I haven't been over at LJ that much either, just going to make a post but I shouldn't be much around *points to your quote* I have to do that! *deep inhale of air* Yup, need to.

Well angel! thanks for all! break a couple of legs and kick their buts with the plaster! *giggles*

Love ya much!
P.S: one that is off to her law books too BUT thankfully no BAR so I get to do june-frakkin-awful-exams just! *hehe*
screen_queen: Thumbs up! - SAGscreen_queen on June 13th, 2007 07:49 pm (UTC)
*huggles you back!* lol!!! I LOVE that expression you use!!! *huggles* makes me want to curl up with a teddy bear!!

Glad you liked the photos and comments!! (I was afraid the comments would be too cheesy! oh well!) OH I KNOW!! the WHOOSH of her hair and the perfect texture in that photo are beautiful aren't they? quite the shot!

Yes, I guess we BOTH have to live by that quote for a while. Although your exams end far before I have to stop studying... sigh... then you can just *poke* me to get studying! :D hehe. and make me sleep!!!

LOL!! ok i'm off to kick butts with plaster and take names!!! hehehe... (now you go do the same!!)

Sigh.. I miss you :( ... darn this time difference! it makes it difficult to predict when you'll be on! But don't hesitate to try me even if my away message is up ok? sometimes I'm there (just working ;)

And your Venice series of pics was too cute -- I love how you add captions to make a "story"! You clever girl, you. ;-) ♥

As ever, Helen picspams are a glorious start to my work day. Thank you bountifully!!!

I'm so sad because I miss Ms. Lizard :( I mean, seriously. I MISS YOU! It feels SO strange not to talk to you!!

I really hope your work is going well. I know in the end you're going to do fabulously and it will be SO worth it. Forza Liz!

Me, I'm a reading machine. It's so vitally important that I make up for lost time now. My days go like this: Read until my contacts get blurry, then watch episodes of The Closer (Meg should be so pleased; I'm really endeavoring to like it) that I DVR-ed until I collapse into a heap. Other than that, I'm in a really bizarre head-space. Meh, what else is new?

I so hope that I'll get to speak to you before I go to Italy, at least. Let me know if you're going to be around at all, okay?

Much love and big Helen hugs, even though I'm just not in an all-caps kind of mood,

screen_queen: Go Ahead Punkscreen_queen on June 21st, 2007 05:47 am (UTC)
I know what you mean! I was literally counting the days until you got back! I MISSED YOU TERRIBLY! no, really. :(

Work? eh, as well as can be expected I guess. But let's not talk about that! :D What I want to know is what "Forza" means!!

Hehe... Meg got me to rent The Closer off Netflix! I have the entire first season, but I haven't been in the mood for dramas. I get enough crim law and procedure in class and studying these days. I usually turn to The Nanny or Golden Girls when I take my breaks :D, but you liked it?

HECK YA we'll talk! in fact, I believe we are at this very moment!! I can't go without my Taye for too long! I'd miss you too much!!!

I'M SO GLAD YOU'RE BACK!!! You brighten my day IMMEASURABLY!!!

take care of yourself! I'll be checking in on you missy!

lizy lizard (i think it looks better with one "z" for lizy hmm... thoughts?)
