i'm posting every day this week! i'm just going to do it, damn it. i've no idea about what, but i'll figure it out.

like right now... um... how about a weekend wrap up.

did a bit of gardening here at work (we have two sidewalk gardens and a planter box). then i spent the rest of the afternoon moving stuff into my new (to me) dresser! between craigslist and thrift stores, i've recently acquired a dresser, a desk, and a trundle bed for the guest room/office. shit's finally coming together. \o/ for the past two months i've been living with a good portion of my clothes still in bags on my bedroom floor, but this weekend they all found a home. ahhhhhhh, such a glorious feeling. saturday night i went out to dinner and then drinks for a friend's ex-girlfriend's birthday (yeah :|). due to her friends not understanding how bills work, and not wanting to make a stink on her birthday, i ended up spending an extra 20 bucks so the waiter didn't get the shaft. despite this nonsense, we had a pretty great time, and i re-discovered my love for bombay saphire. nommmmm.

was meant to be equally as productive. i was going to garden at the house and then work on the desk/office where everything is still a giant pile of CHAOS. but instead i watched tv, bought a bunch of comic books, and re-read my LJ entries from 2006 - my last year in nyc. man, i really hated my job. i pretty much only posted about that and orlando bloom.

this week there needs to be grocery shopping and major cleaning, especially attacking that office. i have three weeks until K2 arrives and that room has to be habitable. right now it is a junk room/giant shoe closet. so much to do, but whatever, bc in less than a month we will be ON OUR WAY TO HAWAII! \o/ i've never been! i can't wait! bring me a mai tai! \o/

as for fandom content, i guess mcr might be releasing their third and final video of the killjoys trilogy this week? and i am having all the ridiculous emotions. )

SO YAYE NEW VIDEO. excitement! trepidation! fearrrr. ;_;

blah blah about the line-up )

but whatever, MCR!! \:D/ they were GRATE. it was clear from the start that the majority of people were there for them that night. everyone (the fans and the band) seemed pretty happy and pumped. jen and i started the night off behind a WALL OF DUDES. srsly, in every direction we were pretty screwed - and we're not short (we're both about 5'7''ish)! thankfully, by the time we sauntered back up for the main event, we found the Sea of Frankie Fangirls who top out at about 5'5''. THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT. :D

favorite things:
+ RAY! we weren't on his side, but still had a great view of him, and his SMILE, man, it beams so brightly it's impossible to not smile right back. :D!
+ at one point ray came over to frank's side of the stage, to check in or whatever. when frank looked up and saw him standing there he immediately lit up and smiled SO BIG and then ray smiled back and gave him a thumbs up and frank nodded in return. S'ALL GOOD. ♥
+ GERARD. he wasn't as gloriously campy as he is sometimes, but he still fucking worked it. he's just a really great front-man. he's constantly on the move, going from one side of the stage to the other, and (i've mentioned this before, but) he has this WAY (lol way) of making you feel like he's looking right at you. i know he's not, but he really makes an effort to ~connect~ with the audience in that way. idk, but even jen felt that, and i've never talked to her about it before.
+ what i'm not fond of is them ending with cancer, bc 1) cancer, and 2) everyone, except for james and gerard, slip away without any sort of ceremony. i want to give them a proper send off with applause and heartfelt woo-hoos, but we're denied that. it bums me out. :(
+ but before cancer, gerard was taking a moment over by the drum set during the intro and trying to get his jacket back on. i couldn't make out what the issue was, but clearly he was having TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES, because eventually he was out of time and tossed it back to the ground with a shrug and this little embarrassed smirk as he walked toward the mic. it was kind of hilarious. but ever the professional, the smirk quickly disappeared and he put on his SRS BZNS face for the song.
+ OMG I ALMOST FORGET, GERARD WORE A NEW FUCKING SHIRT. i mean, not a new shirt (his iron maiden one, inside out), just not the skanky sleeveless one he hasn't taken off since september (or maybe earlier). i have an old school lolzy flip phone and it takes me like 5 MINUTES to type out the simplest of texts (which is why i don't concert twitter), but when i saw those sleeves, i was like HOLY SHIT, i need to tell the internet immediately. O_O

my favorite exchange came from the end of the night, talking with jen, when i found out that she bailed out of Frank Iero Sex Chicken almost immediately. "i'm sorry, but there is NOTHING SEXY about spitting up in the air and then catching it with YOUR HAIR when it comes back down. DDDDD:" ahahahahahahaha, okay. that's valid (but i'm still in /o\). "and then a second time he tried to swat it away with his hand when it came back down. better, but NO." yeahhhhhh (still in). her faces of horror were priceless. ♥

my pictures always come out blurry - THEY MOVE AROUND TOO MUCH! especially FRANK. the second i have it all lined up and in focus, zoom, he's spinning around and out of frame. :\ ah well. here's the least blurry of the bunch. )

...so, wait. what do you MEAN i won't be seeing them again until MAY 2011?!? ;_________;

from a recent article about the album: Gerard Way peers through cigarette smoke and the late-afternoon Pasadena haze as he searches his memory... damn it, gerard. you're supposed to tell me when you're in my hood so we can do lunch! whatever, i see how it is.

ion, i know i am years late to this party, but omg how great is PSYCH. my friend jen totally got me hooked on this show the last time i was in san diego. it's hilarious! every episode is a pop culture extravaganza! there are currently 5 psychs on my dvr waiting for me, I AM EXCITE. the last episode i watched had ralph freaking macchio in it, HOLLAHHHH. :D (not to mention that our two protags are totes married.) favorite new (to me) show. <3

ioon, i started this post over two weeks ago, and i meant to come back to add/edit whatever, but that just hasn't happened and clearly is not going to, so i'm going to dump this here in order to move on. (i get very stuck sometimes where i think i can't post new stuff until i finish up with the old - and then i don't post for a month.) it's very tl;dr.

harry potter and the second to last )

mcr, danger days record release @ the house of blues )

except for how he doesn't, bc FRANK and those pesky ways. but dude. dude looks good.

so yeah, i thought i would be okay not posting this. but it turns out no, i need it here. like i need it IN MY PANTS. unffff )

this weekend was not my best - i felt run down and just... off for most of it. saturday morning started far too early with a 7 mile hike/run and at one point i had to stop and breathe or i was going to vom and/or pass out. clearly my heart-rate got too high, but it was a trail i've done countless times before without issue, so... idk. the afternoon was spent couch shopping. after a sea of nothing, we hit the sofa company and hooboy we had options coming out our ears. almost too many options. it was overwhelming and i had to leave, but i think i'll definitely go back when i have a better idea of what i want.

i slept in sunday and spent a good portion of the day in bed. it was much needed and an excellent life decision. i pretty much only got up late in the day to mow my lawn and rake up leaves for an hour, and even that little effort left me feeling shaky and weak. idk, i still feel a little off this morning. shrug shrug. more coffee is surely the answer, no? coffee coffee.

so while in bed yesterday, i decided to make a few icons. and then i couldn't stop and made more. and because i am holy indecisive batman, i made more still. they're all from mcr's na na na lyric video and they're all over here for the taking if you're interested. a sampling:

and in much, much better news, we get even MORE new music from those mcrs tomorrow - or late late tonight as it might be. \o/ guys, guys, idk if i've mentioned this lately - it's a bit of a secret - but i love them. kind of a lot. don't tell anyone. ♥____♥
