||it's me and the moon
Friday: had chemistry and APUSH exams. chem was alright, got through most of it, but didn't complete every single multiple choice. and thanks to KRISTINA we are being counted on every single one. :P didn't do so good on history, but i suppose that's what happens when you don't give a shit. after the exams amanda and i grabbed some McDonald's and then headed to SST just as english was getting out. *snaps fingers* darn. mrs. kelley said that the guy that was coming to train us on how to use the fluorescent microscope was running a half hour late [he was the whole reason we went to biotech that day] so while we waited for him to show up, mrs. kelley awarded us with a pop quiz. @%$^@$%!$%! so then the guy finally shows up, and i go with him into the lab to help set it up. dale and amanda boyle, and then finally amanda marsh join us. then out of nowhere, the dude [who reminded me of the father on 10 Thing I Hate About You] shouted SHIT. mmm never a good thing. it turns out we were missing a part? or something? so now he has to come back another day and train us $%!#$%!# so it was a wasted day at SST.
that night amanda went with me to pick up my April Sixth EP at Bullmoose. got coffee then came home because my parents wanted me to babysit. [my sister's 11, and i think at that age they can stay home by themselves. shit i did. but my parents don't trust her so YAY i get stuck home with her. fun stuff] then i just think i read for a while. i picked up this random free book at the library a couple weeks ago because it mentioned something about a nude male body on an embalming table. kinky. picked it up, thought it would be funny. and it is. oohh how silly romance novels are. so very silly.
Saturday: slept until 11:22. got up. got some food and some coffee, did the shower thing, then had an appointment. went home read some more. all of my friends were working so i was stuck at home until they got out. watched The Ring with steve. i was trying to freak him out. the whole time he was like, WTF!? paula came over and they all went out bar hopping or something. so around 9:45 i picked up amanda and WE went bar hopping. hahaha. we stopped by O'Leary's right next to the miniature golf course. it's some irish biker bar. amanda stopped in to see her god mother and we also saw rachel there. she was playing geetar. we left around 10, drving rt 1. we were gonna stop at the alley but we just kept on driving and went downtown. amanda and i were walkin the sidewalk, and this white car stalled at the light. we were laughing and then the guys inside rolled down the windows and started waving at us. we waved back and then they started shouting things. i didn't catch anything except the "YOU'RE SEXY!" part. all the rest was mumbo jumbo that didn't make it to my ears. haha gotta love it. got bored real quick. left around quarter to 11. stopped at the alley, didn't see anyone. but we played that star-wars game in the arcade hehehe. our score was ZERO. oh well. left at 11, stopped back at the bar. rachel said she was going to play again, so we were there until 12:30. Lonely Gus & the One Night Stand played. it was so funny, all these old ugly men were drunk off their asses, and two of them started grinding with this one really drunk woman. well, at least i hope she was drunk, because if she actually knew what she was doing and with WHOM then she's got issues. then one of the guys started dancing with a chair. ... so yeah, i went to the bar and ordered a root beer. mmm leprechaun style. i guess i was acting crazy because amanda says her parents thought i was high or something. oh yeah. read, then went to sleep.
Sunday: woke up at... 11:23. heh. sort of lazed about the house for most of the morning. read a bunch. then amanda accompanied me on an errand excursion. then we left around 3:30ish for worcester, because we didn't know what traffic was going to be like, so if we would get lost whatever. got to the Palladium at about 5 till 6. perfect because doors were supposed to open at 6. they didn't really open until 6:20 though, but whatever. bought shirts because i'm so small and by the time the show is over all the little sizes would be sold out. so yeah. went up to the balcony and established seating. court sat up there and amanda and i went back down into the pit. the first band was Days Away, and i thought they were alright. not much for openers though. they didn't play music that gets you pumped, it was too slow. did nothing for the crowd. these older guys came and stood right behind me. they had beer and i was so afraid that once the mosh got going i'd end up drenched. one of them kept shouting and it was right in my ear. dude, i wanted to hit him. but whatever, he was just having a good time. it was so funny though, after about 5 minutes the lead singer said, "i smell weed." the guys were like, "let's go find it!" only they didn't. heh.
next was Mae, and they were pretty good. the crowd seemed to like them. and i was pretty close to the bar. there were maybe five rows of people in front of me. so i'm thinkin, score! maybe i can hit the bar by the time something corporate gets on. i don't really move though, through Mae and then RX Bandits. i'm squashed between this really tall buff boy, this girl who is bigger then me on my right, and then little teenie boppers to the left and behind me. ew. there's no way i'm getting psat the guy or the girl, they built a frickin baracade so that no one would get through. ok, i say short people in front. i couldn't see over them, and i couldn't breeth because there were a million different elbows poking at me from all sides. so when RX Bandits get done, i ask a couple guys to lift me out, and then i get passed to a security guard. would've stayed, but i couldn't breath and i couldn't see. so i didn't see any point in staying in the pit.
went up to the balcony and visited courtney. bought some water. went back down when something corporate came on stage, so i could get some pictures, but i ran into the lead singer of Days Away, and got a picture with him. [except the stupid bitch that took it cut his head off!]
none of my pictures of the show came out. i guess i was too far away, and the lighting wasn't to my advantage. but whatever, maybe amanda's pictures will come out.
the show was awesome. andrew mcmahon was all over his piano and played with his feet. he has emo hair, and i love it. it was out of control. opened with Space. played some old stuff and some new stuff. it was hot. i ran around back and forth between the balcony and the floor. court came down with me one time, and held my stuff while i went to crowd surf. i went down and stood behind a group of guys, because i was going to ask them to lift me up. but they were too cute so i decided to wait a while. that and because a slow song was playing, and i didn't think anyone would pay attention to surfers during a slow song. the next song though, i saw these guys a couple rows ahead of me throw this girl into the crowd, but nobody caught her! i was like, ok maybe i don't want to do this. but then i went up to them and asked them to put me up anyways. it was super fun. i'm so light, so it wasn't bad. deffinitely better then the time i surfed at the catch 22 concert. much better. after i got to the front they made me walk back around. met back up with courtney, and waited out the rest of the show. deffinitely a good time. met amanda upstairs, and then we headed out to see if we could catch the band at the bus. no such luck, so then we headed home. got home about quarter to 2. mmm fun, especially since i had my math exam in 6 hours. crashed.
Monday: woke up. got coffee. took exam. conferenced with gushee about my paper. totally shut the guy down. my thesis is that HIV is not the cause of AIDs, and i'm discussing Duesberg vs Gallo. gushee was like, "is this going to be medical based?" um, yeeeeeah. "you do realize that you're going to have to... write to a general audience, right?" so basically i have to right like a first grader so that gushee will understand what i'm saying. yay fun. i like to write in crayon. but nah, i told him i was stoked about this paper. this is the one thing that i'm excited about in this class. 25 pages of medical research. fuuun shit.
went home. wasn't tired after the coffee so i talked online and read. had a doctor's appointment at 2, because i was getting prescribed for birth control. my mom thinks i'm a slut what can i say. afterwords went home, and took a tiny nap. then dropped off my film. around, 5ish? 5:30ish? i don't remember, picked up Ferret and went to the mall to start christmas shopping. bought a birthday gift for my brother, who's birthday was yesterday, but i will see him tomorrow. after that amanda and i went to Barnes&Noble and then to Circut City. i was entranced by the big screen tv playing Finding Nemo. i felt as though i were actually under water!! amanda had to pry me away from the tv and some random dude was making fun of me. bastards lol. then went to Wendy's, because i had gone too long withouth a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger. siiigh those things are heaven. then since KMart was right there we decided to hit that up. then Marshall's. but both were pretty sketchy so we left and went to Pure One. i <3 that store with a passion. bought some christmas stuff there, and then we headed home. i grabbed my stuff, and then spent the night at amanda's. we went out to hollwood around 10 to rent a movie. i made amanda get Down With Love because she hadn't seen it yet and it's a tubular movie. kevin was working so we talked to him for a bit. it turns out he got kicked out of his house. haha that sucks. went back to amanda's, watched the movie. she loved it. :) went to bed.
Today: we were woken up by a stampede of sophomores. nikki had brought a bunch of friends over after exams, and they were going to be cool and make music videos lol. wow. we grabbed some D&D and went back to my house. ate then she left. i did all that hygiene stuff, and then we went to type for Lit Mag but they had already done all that. sooo then we went to pick up my pictures [to discover that they turned out like shit] dropped off the movie, went back to amanda's house to get her camera, dropped it off, went to the bank. and then dropped me off and here i am. and i'm leaving in about 10 minutes or so to go pick up amanda's developed film with her.
leaving for dad's tomorrow. will be home saturday. have an awesome vacation kids, and happy turkey day :)
i still have to upload the one with the Days Away lead, and will post later.
