Well its only been...over 4 months since I went to the HIM concert in Portland. So a review is much overdue. I did start and entry the day I came back but as you can tell it was never finished. Its the post labeled post in progress. This has been nagging me for awhile and now I finally have time. So here is what I recall based on notes I took after the concert, Mandy's post about the concert, some videos on youtube, and my own memory under a lovely cut.

I am also reposting the links for the videos that I found youtube of the concert below:

BOO!
I hope you are all having an awesome Halloween. At work I dressed up as the filing fairy. My boss gave me fluorescent Blue temporary hair dye as a present. I also went by the area desk and got some candy as well as trick or treating on facebook. Originally Hairball and I had planned on doing a movie night at her house while we put together my graduation announcements, but we both had to cancel. I then planned on doing the free online horror film festival. It featured the classics Night of the Living Dead, Dementia 13, Horror Hotel, Black Sabbath, The Ape, I Eat Your Skin, Mania, My Son the Vampire, and Countess Dracula. But my midterm got moved to November 1st, so now I shall have no fun and study instead. Ok, so I had a little fun. I splurged on dinner. I got shrimp bento box and a Philly roll (sushi) from downstairs. I shall make up for it on Friday.
Have fun!

I made Pocket choke on his ice cream cone. We were talking about my piercing and then he was giving me a bad time about leaving in December, so I said "I would only be staying here to get more piercings." Then he choked. You had to be there, but he likes my nose ring.

I have finally seen the Guru.

This crusty old guy told me I had a beautiful smile. It was unexpected and came at the right time. Because it caught me completely off guard and seemed genuine, it brightened my day.

Amazingly my piercing is a week old and it is doing well. I have managed to keep to the care instructions very well and no infections or anything. Go me!

I have been basically living off sushi and water. Granted it's sushi from the school bistro but hey it is better than some of the sushi at some of the restaurants around here.

This is awesome: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00geU9cjFG8&mode=related&search=

Thursday night was the premiere of the new season of CSI. My roommate invited my friend powerpuffboy to come watch it with us because he has no tv and really wanted to see if Sarah dies. (Sadly, she does not.) This irked me a little because even though he is my friend, and we were going to watch it anyway, and I really don't mind too much if he comes over, she asked him without asking me first. It shouldn't bug me but it does a little bit. He called me afterward to tell me that he left his sweatshirt there and if it would be ok if he left it there till another day. I, of course, said yes, and now because of it I have gotten to meet the girlfriend. She was in town today and he decided to pick up the sweatshirt. She is a very sweet girl and I am glad I finally got to meet her.

It is weird being back here because everyone I know is at a totally new place in their lives then they were last time I saw them. I see more people that I know then I have any other school year but in completely new contexts. Pocket isn't an RA anymore, now he is a complex director assistant. The DAs that stayed are no longer my coworkers. There are people I lived with their freshmen years (my sophomore, junior and 1st senior years) are in my classes and it is the first time I have seen them since we lived together. The list goes on and on.

Friday, Hoobie and I went to Spirit. I could have spent forever in there. I was having one of those "I'll take one of everything please" moments. I managed to leave with only on purchase of an $8 top hat. How we may never know. Halloween is truly my favorite holiday. I'm going back on Tuesday because they are getting a new shipment in.

I am a little bummed because this weekend was a Zombie walk, nudie sushi night, and Fetish night and, for various reasons, I had to miss them all.

Another reason to go back to Spirit. There is this guy that works there. Do I really need to add more details? He is the one that told me about the shipment coming in and the Zombie night. He also went out of his way to say bye to me when Hoobie and I left the store. I wonder what costume he will be wearing this time.

Hairball and I made it to Saturday Market. She bought a fabulous hat. There are pictures of the fabulous hat. One day I may finish uploading photos to facebook and flickr and you will be able to see them. Hopefully this will remain a standing appointment for us for the rest of the season.

On Sunday, I dragged my roommate out of our room because I was tired of watching her mope about with nothing to do. We went to the mall and I now own my first HIM t-shirt. It was the first one I have ever seen in my size. We also went to target and the movies. Target was more entertaining than it should have been. The toy section and the holiday section had me practically drooling and I was able to price flash drives. We also both finally got to see The Simpsons Movie. It was well worth the wait. I was singing spider pig all the way home.

For the HIM fans: There have been a bunch of good links to listen to radio interviews on Valo Daily. I would make links to them but I have a feeling that by the time I post this some of the links would be expired and it is a lot of work to post that many, so you will have to search on your own. But they are worth the search.

Photos
I have managed to control my inner shutter bug for the most part. Not that that stopped me from taking ten billion beach pics and pictures of Romeo, but the grocery store has turned into my biggest inspiration. I have managed to keep my camera away from there though. Pics I wanted to take but didn’t: The “Black Sheep” Harley guy and his bike. I have seen him at the grocery and the car show. There has also been a wide variety of produce I wanted to capture, mostly for being freakishly large. The fresh pigs feet for sale. The rows of shakers of MSG, the rows of tins of dry mustard, the fresh shark meat, the canvas bags of fry bread mix.
On Facebook I have added 6 new albums and added 16 picture to existing albums (it was a while ago now). After I get back to school I have a bunch more to post as well. It is just too much of a pain to try and do it on my current internet connection.
I got the photos for my Christmas cards done. Eight of you are going to get an interesting card this year.

Blah, I didn't really do anything Thursday other than some light house work and talk to Tini. Did I mention she has internet again? YAY! I was going to gut my facebook page and update it (even though it will probably look exactly the same when I'm done) but all I did was rearrange some of the boxes and add movies/reviews to my movies application. And apparently I turned a vampire and another zombie. Go me. Although my vampire underling has already surpassed me. Friday I did nothing.
Saturday on the other hand, I went to CC all day. Mostly I went shopping for pet stuff and work shoes for mom. We ended up getting Romeo a little cube thing he loves to death and a fuzzy faux fur pet bed he avoids like the plague. Before that we went to go take pictures of a mural for my dad. A friend of his that passed a few years ago had been painted into it and he will probably never make it down there to go see it. We also visited my aunt and uncle while we were there to find out more info about my cousin's wedding. I ended up spending most of that time talking to my uncle about computer games and cartoons. He loves to play Diablo online and chat in the forums. Another of my cousins came over and I spoke with her for a little bit because she got her nose pierced a year ago and I was wondering where she got it done around here. She got it done at the Del Norte fair, which is next month. We also found out that a man we knew committed suicide about three months ago and possibly killed his mother. Later when we got home we watched Marie Antoinette.
Sunday was kind of a lazy day. I worked on designing announcements. Mom got Romeo a new collar. He keeps attacking the bell on it. We ran errands. I had more photos printed off. Mom made me so we could show dad the mural. While we were waiting for the photos to print, mom and I wandered around Blockbuster. As always there were so many movies I wanted to see. Mom wasn't very interested in anything. We rented nothing. We went to go visit my dad. T9 is finally done and has its decals on the side. Dad gave me a tiny version of the decal. I have no idea where I am going to put it. I played on my computer trying to see if I can burn cds. I can burn music onto cds but for some reason I cannot burn other kinds of files anymore. As I said earlier I think it is because of the dvd player being set to a region 2 player and it is the same drive. It is still disturbing and if that is the reason, why can I burn music? Except when I burn music or play the love metal archives dvd, the computer says that the d drive isn't accessible (I don't remember what it says exactly but that is what it amounts to) and when I highlight files the option of "copy file to CD" should appear under folder tasks but it doesn't. I will figure something out but not being able to back up my computer scares me. I have lost everything too many times before.
I also discovered that the type of goldfish I have been looking for are called Black Moores. I'm not getting any at the moment though because they require a filtered tank (goldfish are actually quite fussy) and I just don't have one at the moment.
Romeo also has a new trick he has been showing off. When I am laying on the couch, he climbs up on to the back of the couch, puts his butt on one side of the couch, his head and forelegs on the other, and slides down on his belly on to me. It is almost disturbing really.
Today I worked on my room. It will probably being an ongoing project into the next milenia at this rate. I also planted some catnip. It was also Romeo's first day outside. It went ok for a little bit but then he got freaked and walked out of his harness (he needs a new one but mother is convinced she can make the one from the dollar tree work). Once he was captured, I sat down with him in the grass and just held him in my lap and he did just fine. Until a bunch of cars went by and we decided it was time he went back inside. I also made dinner tonight. I was really lazy so it was all stuff we had that was premade and I just heated it up, basically. It tasted marginal, it didn't go well together, and it was all finger food, but my presentation was fantastic. And in my mother's book that is the important thing. I also realized today that I have tipped the $1000 mark out of the $1500 that I need to make. Not bad for someone that can't find a job.
Blah it is too hot to do anything so I think I am going to go climb in the freezer now.

What did I do?

Its raining out right now. I love it. It is still to hot though. Today was reasonably productive. I got my stuff together for tomorrow. I did some laundry. I picked up the living room and took the garbage out of the kitchen. All was happy and peaceful, till mother came home. Within five minutes of her coming home I was trying to comfort her, she screamed at me on the verge of tears and was pissed about me yelling at her. But I didn't yell at her. I never even so much as had raised my voice. When she came in I was on the phone with my uncle who had a question for my mother I asked her, after some thinking she answered. I told him. I told her who had called while she was at work she screamed at me. I tried to comfort her. She told me I was a horrible for yelling at her. O_o And I did my damnedest not to turn it into a fight. At first I was pissed for being yelled at over something I hadn't even done, so I decided it was best not to say anything till I had cooled down and just went on about my business. Every time we attempted to talk to each other afterward, she decided to turn it into a fight, no matter what it was. *screams* At least the cat at fun today. He discovered the dryer and apparently how fun it is to knock things off tables. As for updateing my facebook, I was only on long enough to increase the level of my vampire from catholic school girl vampire to bride. I should go take a shower and go to bed. I must be up bright and early tomorrow.
p.s. I have also found that on the 69 eye official web page you can draw on the header. Its quite fun in a weird child like way.

So Today wasn't worse then yesterday, mainly because we had extra help. It was however more disgusting. Today though I got paid and was not the only one that was fed up with it all. I am so sore that I can barely lift my left arm...again. Tomorrow hopefully I will get some stuff done around the house and tie up the phone line all day by being online. Muahahahaha.
The little attention whore is now acting not just like he is used to the house but like he realizes that he lives here now and it is his house too. He really does enjoy making it hard for me to type as well.
I went up a zombie level on facebook. I am doing it by earning zombie points instead of by creating zombies. I went from an Leftenant zombie to a Ninja zombie. Hairball will be so proud. I am now the same level as the zombie that created me. He still out ranks me by a lot though. I have only created one zombie though and she isn't earning any points or creating any zombies. Oh well. I also added SuperPoke! on facebook and threw a sheep at Tini.
I also realized that I like my-not-so-secret crush more than I realized. Gods that sounded so juvenile. Anyway, I found out today that he now has a girlfriend and I didn't have the best reaction. It wasn't like I cried or threw things or anything. I just blacked out for a moment and had tremendous chest pains for a little bit all while not being able to breathe. See what I get for remembering people's birthdays?
But all in all I'm in a surprisingly good mood. I guess I shall see you lovely people tomorrow.

Deep Breath

I guess I shall do a real update.
Romeo is adjusting well. He still cries all the time but he spends more time with us. He explores the house more and has decided that everything he comes across is a toy. He is a very strange furball. Hopefully I will post photos next week.
I got sad news in my e-mail today. The courts denied stays for internet radio (I hope I worded that right). The only hope now is if congress brings the bill concerning internet radio to the floor for an immediate vote. If this doesn't work, Sunday the music dies.
There was also some happy news. I got paid. I totally forgot that at the end of June I would be getting my May paycheck. I don't know why I forgot this but that is a little under $600 I wasn't planning on dropped in my lap. It is around half of what I need for the school term and about a third of what I need over all. So that is something to be excited about right?
I also finally got to talk to Tina. She is in her new house and has internet. Sadly her bird has flown away. We did talk about my trip to visit her in nola after I am done with school. Because I have enough to visit or enough for a very cheep (aka non-existent) plane ticket. We did come up with an idea. She is diving up for Christmas. I could just ride back down with her. The problem is how do I get home. I still can't afford a plane ticket and one-way tickets are more expensive. Bus tickets are not that expensive though. I could ride the bus home. It is a very scary thought (2 days, 10 hours, and 20 minutes being the shortest ride, alone), but it maybe my only option.
I have very annoying neighbors. They moved in right before I came home from school. They bought the house just to fix it up and sell it. The problem is it is not selling so they have actually moved into it. As far as I can tell it is a couple and their little yappy dog. They are so annoying, sitting in their hot tub yelling at their dog at 3 am. I have a plan to get them back but where am I going to find a kiddie pool and a fat man in swim trunks?
I may see Jenny this weekend!
The job hunt doesn't go so good. I have checked in at Spotlight and it doesn't look like they are hiring at the moment but because I came in and checked my application is now at the top of the very large stack. I also turned in my application to work at the animal shelter. It sounds like they are still hiring but who knows. I shall have to wait and see.
Recently this: http://www.savetheinternet.com/ was brought to my attention. I have done what I can as far as contacting representatives and getting other people's attention. I am currently working on "telling the FCC my story." I tried doing it yesterday but my computer restarted by itself, as it often does, and I lost the long draft I had been writing so I am starting over. It honestly has me very stressed out and I know what is at stake. But I also know that anything major, such as losing access to Lj, myspace, or facebook, or suddenly having to pay a charge for the privilege, is most likely not going to happen overnight or without warning and even if it does I won't be able to do anything about it, including being able to pay for such services. So I am just going to do what I can and try not to let my poor overstressed brain get too strung out. I am also forcing myself to wait to update my facebook and myspace pages till I have other things worked out to help with my internet worries and stress. So far it is not working.
This is just the tip of my mental breakdown iceberg. Even with the good things that are going on I am left with a constant uneasy feeling. I listened to Uneasy Listening Vol. 2 by HIM and it made me feel amazing but it didn't last long.
Here are some quiz thingies to help lighten the mood:

Your Toes Should Be Black

A total rulebreaker (and heartbreaker), you're always a little punk rock.

Your flirting style: Wacky and a bit shocking

Your ideal guy: An accomplished artist, musician, or writer

Stay away from: Preppy guys looking for a quick bad girl fling


You're 85% Irish

Congratulations, you're a shining example of an Irish lass (or lad).
There's hardly anyone more Irish than you!


Dark Purple

To others, you seem a bit dark, mysterious, and moody.
In truth, you are just a very unique person who doesn't care what others think.
And you really enjoy your offbeat interests and friends.
You've decided that life is about living for yourself - simple as that.
