all american rejects – another heart calls

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

I’m MTV famous – The All-American Rejects’ ‘The Last Song’ at the Hard Rock Live (2003).

How many times did you see me & Leilani? Jesus my fucking hair is so short and i’m so skinny!

P.S. I miss this Tyson, sweaty, healthy, wearing the same tshirt 3 days in a row, bass rocking and just awesome shit.

One of my brothers from another mother <3


A falling star, at least I fall alone;
I can’t explain what you can’t explain.

Goodbye 2009

Thursday, December 31st, 2009

I will miss you.

You were definately a very fun, very adventurous, a very OMG year and a year of alot of 1st times. The only way I can think of to give you an idea is to show you with a few pictures.


Went to Orange Bowl Fan Fest in Miami to see The All-American Rejects.

 Found out that The All-American Rejects were playing in Miami at the Orange Bowl Fan Fest, so me, Leilani & Jennifer drove our ass down there to hang with Nadia, take pictures and watch the boys own the crowd’s faces with how awesome they are live.

Celine Dion played at my work O_o

Celine Dion played at my work O_o

Then towards the end of the month it got really busy at work, because the Super Bowl was gonna be in Tampa this year and all these celebrities would be in town trying to have shows for all the people coming from all over to Tampa for the Super Bowl. Which means where I worked had a week full of back to back shows, Dane Cook, Lightning games, random concerts and more importantly TO ME Celine Dion. I actually spent $140 on tickets to go see Celine Dion live for the very first time. It was the greatest $140 I spent on a show like ever, literally I cried when she appeared on the stage. She didn’t even say anything and I was bawling like a retard. And then lost my shit when she encored to ‘My Heart Will Go On’.

Yea that shit got real <3


Me & Mom after a funeral in New Jersey.

Me & Mom after a funeral in New Jersey.

 My parents & I attended my dad’s Aunt’s funeral; my dad had flew up there a few days before us to be with his aunt before she passed away and then when she did my mom & I flew up there for the funeral. I think me & my mom were up there maybe a complete day, I can’t really remember, but despite the circumstances it was fun! I got to see snow fall while we were driving around and I can’t remember the last time I saw that!

A community I inspired was born.

A community I inspired was born.

I had become a regular on ONTD’s comments for any posts that had to deal with Twilight or Robert Pattinson. Spamming those posts with funny pics of rpattz or Twilight and through the months I became friends with several of the same posters that would also spam the same posts, so instead of having to wait for a rpattz or twilight posts on ONTD my friend Emily created the community, spammerpattz. A community for all the spammers that love rpattz and spam pics of him.


Trip to see How To Be in Alabama, we went & visited the King.

Trip to see How To Be in Alabama, we went & visited the King.

I saw a movie trailer for the movie ‘How To Be’ the year before staring Robert Pattinson and wanted to see it. Well it’s a very low budget film and ONLY because rpattz was so popular at the moment they got enough money to start screening it across the US at film festivals. The closest one to us was in Florence, AL so me, Leilani & Katie decided to drive up to Corinth, MS to visit my family and then the next day on our way back home drive over to Florence for the screening of How To Be.

Which ended up being an adventure all on it’s own because we trusted Leilani’s phone’s gps and when her phone said “your destination is to your left” we all turned to the left to see a huge field with one cow staring back at us. That was DEFINATELY NOT the University of North Alabama which is where the film festival was.

Oh did I mention that we had no idea where we were, besides out in the boonies. We barely had ANY connection on our phones which is what Leilani needed for her gps to work AND we only had like 20 minutes before the movie started to get there.

With the grace of God we got there right when the movie was supposed to start (had a run around cuz Leilani was too much of a chicken shit to actually ask someone where exactly the movie was being showed) but once we got to the door we found out that to view it was free! AND that they hadn’t even started the movie yet (ended up starting maybe 20 mins after we got there), plus there was barely anyone there! Movie was heart breaking, hilarious and cute, we all were glad we made the trip up to see it & as soon as it was over we were on the road home – 12 hours!

Went to see Val Emmich in GA & SC :)

Went to see Val Emmich in GA & SC :)

Later in the month we confinced Erin to go with me & Leilani to GA & SC to see our favorite solo artist, Val Emmich! Erin was also awesome enough to let us take her car instead of wasting money on a rental! Was the first time I seen Val play live in 2 years, so an emotional experience it really was for me. It was Erin’s first time seeing him live altogether and needless to say we had her hooked after that trip :)


Went to see How To Be in Orlando

Went to see How To Be in Orlando

Leilani, Katie, Jennifer, Erin & me all drove to Orlando to see How To Be, because of wrong directions and near death situations we missed the whole money but the last 20 minutes. Will Call was closed already so me & Katie couldnt pick up our tickets and everyone else was gonna buy theirs there, but the lady let us in anyways! We did however get to see the Q&A with the cast after the movie was played which was hilarious. Didn’t get to talk to the cast because they were being hogged by a ton of twimoms, but we didn’t let it bother us because we were going to one of the other FL screenings, so we knew we had another chance to talk to them :)

Went to FL screenings of How To Be. Met the cast :)

Went to Tallahasse screening of How To Be. Met the cast :)

 Very next day, Erin, Leilani, Katie & me drove 4 hours to Tallahassee to see the screening of How To Be and this time around since there wasn’t that many people that stayed after to talk to the director and cast, we actually got to! Again we were pushing it with time and got there right before they were to start showing the movie, stayed afterwards for the Q&A again, which didnt last long at all and someone ended up asking a pretty stupid question about Robert Pattinson, but can’t remember what it was. Just remember thinking ‘omg are you serious?’ haha.

Talked to the director & cast and confirmed to myself that I need to at least date a british man before I die, because the director said my name and I fell in love. Seriously I have never heard my name sound so magicial in all my life.


Drove 40 hrs (2476 miles) in 3 days.

Drove 40 hrs (2476 miles) in 3 days.

 May 1st began our 2,476 mile/40 hour road trip to Richmond, VA so Leilani could get some paperwork that would of took WEEKS to get, but only took 30 minutes since we drove up there. Then the SAME DAY drove to Corinth, MS to visit my family for a few hours, before the next afternoon driving to Birmingham, AL to see The All-American Rejects play live. Then right after the show drive back home to Tampa, FL to get a few hours of sleep before driving to Miami, FL (the same day) to see Little Ashes at the Gay & Lesbian Film Festival.

We didn’t think we’d make it or if we did we’d be deader then shit, but surprisingly the challenge is what made it fun as hell and the inside jokes that it created made it memorable and wiped our memories of how tired we actually were driving all that way, haha.

I got blamed for leaking the New Moon script.

I got blamed for leaking the New Moon script.

Not even days after we got back home from that trip, my friend on twitter (who will remain nameless since I don’t throw people under buses unless they piss me off & deserve it) sent all her followers the New Moon script. So I downloaded it and saw that it was jumbled up like one huge paragraph, so I copy & pasted it into word & took 2 hours to reformat it so you can at least read it. Saved it & uploaded it to megaupload or something and then tweeted that one back to my friend so she could read it. Called it a night and logged off.

Next afternoon at work, I notice that I have a TON of replies on twitter telling me my link doesnt work, which I had no idea what they were talking about.

SideNote: I’d had twitter for 2 years but still didnt understand how it worked, I just tweeted what I was thinking or doing and sometimes someone would respond to it, I didnt know there was a search or anything where u can find tweets that were about specific things.

I’m all like ‘wtf’ on my way home from work cuz I just keep getting more and more replies as the hours went on at work. When I get home and check my mail I have a TON of emails about someone adding me on twitter, so I logged into twitter. I went from I dunno how many followers, maybe  60 to almost 350. Then upon reading my replies realized they were talking about the script link I sent my friend.

Long story short, I found out someone retweeted my link and then some sites got wind of it and posted articles about the leaked script and linking MY TWITTER PROFILE O_o

Articles about me leaking the New Moon Script:
Went to EyeCon in Orlando. Met Kellan Lutz & Jackson Rathbone.

Went to EyeCon in Orlando. Met Kellan Lutz & Jackson Rathbone.

 Then that very weekend, Leilani, Katie & Me decided to go to this Twilight Convention, EyeCon that was happening in Orlando. The main reason why we went was because Leilani LOVES Jackson Rathbone and he was gonna be there; and Katie LOVES Peter Facinelli & Kellan Lutz and they were both going to be there. So I just went for the experience and to take pictures while the other 2 wanted to meet them or just see them in person.

Going to EyeCon opened our eyes to how the Twilight fans really are and that what you read in the news or hear is in fact true, especially about the TwiMoms, omg, haha. Leilani ended up buying me a photo opp for Jackson Rathbone (even though I really didnt want one) so I at least got a pic with him & Katie bought us a Kellan Lutz one, so me & Leilani decided to take it together and ask him if we could do the ‘too much rock for one hand’ pose which he smiled and said ‘hell yeah! I love that pose!’ :)


Went to Harlem to sign the wall at the Apollo for MJ.

Went to Harlem to sign the wall at the Apollo for MJ.

 I couldn’t think of anything to do ’special’ for my birthday this year, so my first official thought was to go to LA for a few days since we hadn’t been since spring 2008; but then I found out that rpattz was filming in NYC and upon thinking about it realized that we hadn’t been to NYC in over 2 years! So we all decided to go to NYC for a weekend & some change. Drove up to Philly to do the Rocky Balboa challenge, which I totally owned, Leilani & Katie didn’t however, haha. Then dropped off our rental in Newark & then took the train into the city.

Katie & Leilani surprised me and booked us a hotel room at the fucking Waldorf-Astoria O_o which is just crazy expensive but omg I’m one of very few people that can say they’ve stayed there. Well not few, but for people with our kind of limited means, it’s pretty few i’m sure, haha. They even gave us champagne because it was my birthday trip!

On one of our days we were watching the news and saw tons of people outside of the Apollo signing this wall in honor of Michael Jackson since he had passed away just a few days before we left on this trip, so we ended up going to Harlem (scared shitless) to check it out and so we could at least say ‘we were there when..’ when we’re older, you know? Katie & Leilani ended up getting a boyfriend on our way out of Harlem, hahahahaha, too funny.

Watching the filming of 'Remember Me'.

Watching the filming of 'Remember Me'.

 Also a main goal of the trip was to catch some of the filming of ‘Remember Me’ but being as this would be our first time EVER trying to watch a filming of something we really had no idea what the fuck we were doing. Thankfully we met some really cool people on twitter that helped us figure shit out and where/what time things were and was actually able to see the DAZZLE in person 2 different times on our trip. Got close enough to touch, but each time was overwhelmed with my eyes trying to convince my brain that he was in fact standing in front of me and not looking at a picture.

Hearing his laugh was pretty much fixed that problem for me.


Went to the Titanic exhibit for my birthday.

Went to the Titanic exhibit for my birthday.

 We were still in NYC the first few days of July, but once we got back it was time to celebrate the actual date of my birth, so we went to the Titanic exhibit like we usually do. Went to Disney World to get my free birthday admission ticket even though we weren’t going, then headed back to Tampa to go eat dinner at Tias :)

Applied for a passport & got it few weeks later.

Applied for a passport & got it few weeks later.

 Few weeks later my dad had me and my mom apply for passports in case anything happened to my brother, who was stationed in Japan, so we’d already have the passports and could just fly over there. They tell you it takes 4-8 weeks to process but I got mine in a little under 2 weeks, which surprised the shit out of me, but who cares……just think of the possibilites of where I can go NOW O_o


Got in a car accident on the way to see Bobby Long. Missed his set, but met the man <3

Got in a car accident on the way to see Bobby Long. Missed his set, but met the man <3

 Jennifer had finally been given a ship date for basic training at the end of September so me & Leilani thought we’d take her to Corinth, MS since that’s my favorite place ever, not only because it’s where all my family is, but also because it just holds such magicial emotions & love for me in the atmosphere. The day before we left for that trip though was the first Bobby Long show in the Tampa area, so after we picked up the car rental for our trip, we went and picked up Angelina, Jennifer, Katie & Leilani and went on our way to the Bobby show.

Ended up hitting a car on our way, which turned out to be a judge! He hardly had any damage done to his car and to be honest I was just grateful that no one was hurt AND that it was a rental i was driving and not my car, haha.

The police department ended up doing a circus act on trying to figure out which one would be covering it, troopers or actual police, before giving me 2 tickets and letting us go on our way.

Missed Bobby’s set, but got in free to actually meet the man, who was incredibly sweet and concerned for us since we got in an accident on our way to see him. We then found out that he liked the venue so much that he was coming back that thursday to play again, which thankfully we were driving back from Mississippi that day, so we’d finally get to see him live!

Took Jennifer to Corinth, MS to meet my favorite place & people on earth.

Took Jennifer to Corinth, MS to meet my favorite place & people on earth.

 Made it to Corinth, MS with no problems, had a BLAST like we always do. Rode my uncle’s four wheeler, which was the first time Jennifer had ever done that, so I swear we almost died a few times. Went walking through the woods, drove around town getting lost. Got some good ass Corinth snow cones and ate at Don Julios. We also took Jennifer to Graceland, which she liked Elvis, but after we went she REALLY LIKED Elvis :)


Forks Highschool

Went to Forks Highschool in Forks, WA.

 After the fun we had on my birthday trip in NYC, we decided that for Katie’s & Leilani’s birthday we would go on a trip as well. Katie decided that for her birthday (9/11) that she wanted to go to Vancouver and hopefully maybe see them filming Eclipse a little bit. So we planned a trip where we’d fly into Seattle (it was cheaper then vancouver) stay in Forks for the nite, then the next day drive up to Vancouver and stay there for 9 days.

Boy we had no idea what we were in for.

Flew into Seattle, meant with rain just like the books said and Forks was exactly the same way, but I had no idea I would fall in love with their nature’s beauty, omg. Katie got sick so once we got to the hotel in Forks she went to sleep and Leilani & I went to La Push to look around and was met with a breath taking sunset. Who knew something so beautiful would greet us in the land of the Failcob.

Taylor Lautner leaving set for the day.

Taylor Lautner leaving set for the day.

 Speaking of Failcob….

After Forks we drove up to Vancouver, which that very night we got lucky and Bobby Long was in town, so we got to see him perform live again and got a glimpse of rpattz & kstew at the end of it too O_o

The rest of the time in Vancouver was spent getting lost, trying to figure out the Canadian ways, looking for Eclipse sets and staying away from the crazy Twilight fans, haha.

Oh and dissing Taylor Lautner and not even knowing it was him, haha. That was priceless oh and then seeing him again the next day (the above picture) leaving the set of Jacob’s house.


Went back to Corinth to get Leilani a puppy named Lo.

Went back to Corinth to get Leilani a puppy named Lo.

 When we went to Mississippi back in August to show Jennifer it’s magic, we were introduced to my aunt’s dog, Lo. Which Leilani immediately fell in love with and jokingly asked my aunt a few times that she wanted Lo. My aunt would of course joke back and say ‘take her with you’ haha.

Well little did we know my aunt wasn’t joking at all, so in October we went back to Mississippi just to pick up Lo and bring her back to FL so Leilani could keep her :)

I’ve never drove across country with a dog before, except with my parents when we’d be moving, but even then it was organized. This trip back home we didn’t know if she was gonna be crazy running around the car peeing on everything and just being distracting while we tried to drive back home.

Boy were we surprised, aside for a few times were she just had to lick our faces, she was a very good dog in the car. She mainly sleeped the entire time and only peed in the car ONCE out of the whole 13 hour drive!

Scored free tickets to see KISS for the first time!

Scored free tickets to see KISS for the first time!

 So KISS had a show in Tampa and me, Angelina & myself actually scored free tickets to! I’ve never seen them and really didnt have much of a desire to see them but since we got free tickets we went and omg had such a blast! I didn’t realize I knew that many KISS songs, haha!


Welcome back Bobby Long <3

Welcome back Bobby Long <3

 Bobby Long blessed the Dunedin Brewery with his talent once more. Best believe me, Angelina & Leilani were there. I dont see us ever messing a Bobby Long performance in our neck of the woods unless we’re just not in town, haha.

His show was amazing as always, but the fans were the worst at this show. Yelling at him to play certain songs and then just yelling out loud about how they didnt like a song he was playing. It was all fucking horrible and just completely rude, to be honest, but he still put on a good show & we got to talk to him for a little bit afterwards :)

Went to LA for the New Moon Premiere.

Went to LA for the New Moon Premiere.

 Katie, Leilani and me last year when we saw Twilight all agreed that no matter what we would be going to the New Moon premiere that following year. Well for a few months before the actual premiere we didn’t know if we we’d be able to afford to go, especially after spending 10 days in Vancouver, but with my skills at finding cheap deals on hotels, rental cars & flights I was able to find a way for us to go :)

Boy was I glad we did go, because it really was an experience that we all treasured. Not only that but we made some friends and made fun of all the drama going on with the Twilight Fans. We slept for 3 days in the street, in line just so we can get a glimpse of the stars of New Moon and it was our first premiere and I’d do it again in a heart beat!


Went to Orlando & Miami to see AAR.

Went to Orlando & Miami to see AAR.

 The All-American Rejects were co-headling with Taking Back Sunday a tour that came to FL. So me, Angelina, Leilani, Katie & Erin went to see them at the House of Blues in Orlando. Needless to say Katie got TRASHED and wanted to motorboat Tyson real bad, so much so that she was yelling it every 2 seconds and crying when we were trying to leave, haha.

Then the next day me & Katie drove to Miami to see them perform as well and then went to the meet & greet afterwards at a shop down the street where Katie drank some more, haha. The drive home wasn’t quiet, let me tell you, haha.

Went to Ft. Jackson for Jennifer's Army graduation.

Went to Ft. Jackson for Jennifer's Army graduation.

That very next weekend Leilani & Me drove up to Ft. Jackson, SC to see Jennifer’s graduation from the Army boot camp. First day was Family Day so we got to hang out with her and her family. We ended up playing basketball, Wii, did some shopping and then went and had dinner later that night. The next day was her graduation which right before it was to start someone pulled the fire alarm so we had to leave so they can check the building, haha.

After graduation we went and had lunch with her & her family at Ryan’s before me & Leilani headed back home to FL. Which before we left SC we decided to go try and find The Notebook house that Ryan Gosling’s character rebuilt in the movie :)

Which was an adventure all by itself, since we didn’t get to the address til after dark, so I THINK I saw it, but I’ll never know until we go another time to see it :)

So as you can see I tried to go somewhere every month of 2009 and surprisingly we pulled it off, even though after Vancouver we didn’t think we’d be able to afford to go anywhere after that, lol.

Another reason 2009 was so great was I became friends & actually met alot of awesome people because of Twitter: @lafemmeluna @jebs @kimvi @_beccaspage_ @nattycakes @_bitca_ @quartzlyn @caseymariex @raineradaire @pickyourpoison @cantidiamore @enthropologie @dcdazzlesme @ttlindsay @shanzer22 @lauramaniscalco @madiemma @krystle_ewe @dreamsofedward @atr81 @hiscoldtouch @annechantal @robisthedevil @pokerstarlight @candykizzes24@linzkittie @yankeegirl51680 @gabby1017 @robpattznews

The names in bold I actually met, but I hope that changes and I get to meet more of these amazing people!

So 2009 was probably the most adventurous year I’ve had since 2005, even if most of it had to deal with Robert Pattinson events. I seriously wouldnt change this ‘Year of Rpattz’ for anything, because it brought new friends into my life as well as amazing new experiences!

I just hope 2010 is half as amazing as 2009 turned out to be =D

where the fuck have I been?

Thursday, December 24th, 2009

Busy, bored, lazy?

Yea pretty much, haha.

I have so much stuff I need to blog about but lately I have just been completely lazy, too bored to WANT to blog about stuff or actually busy with work, haha. To show you what I mean here’s a recap of what’s been going on since the last time I blogged….

- saw AAR in Orlando & Miami
- went into work the monday after the Miami show, even though I wasnt supposed to (2 hrs of sleep)
- worked to set up for a hockey game that wednesday
- left that night for SC for Jennifer’s graduation
- went looking for The Notebook house on our way back home that friday
- worked to set up for Jingle Ball that sunday
- whole weeks work of setting up for the NCAA women’s volleyball tournament
- go with Leilani to see Brothers
- Jennifer came home the 18th
- FINALLY going Christmas shopping (8 & 1/2 hours & $350+ spent)
- seeing Avatar
- hung out with Jen
- take Jen to see New Moon 
- employee ice skating party
- worked set up for hockey game
- went to hockey game with Jennifer

And of course in the middle of all that was other random shit like trying to catch up on sleep, dealing with drama and trying NOT to break my Christmas Rule which is on Dec 1st i cant buy myself anything, which I broke this year, haha.

Either way I have tons of pictures I need to edit and all that jazz, but who knows when that’ll happen.

Anyways the real reason why I came on here was to wish everyone a safe & Happy Holidays!

My present to you, an oldie but goodie for us AAR fans :)

Hope you guys have a Merry Christmas!

Thank God Tyson. Thank God.

Thursday, October 1st, 2009

Thank God you’re fucking ok!

I can’t really go into detail how I know he’s ok or what really was going on with him, but just know that he’s fucking ok and gonna be ok! And just thank god he gets enough rest – that he’s not getting pressured to GET BETTER quick like I know he’s used to having :)

In other news my friend Jennifer was to ship off for the Army today, so me & Leilani got up at 8:30am to go see her sworn in & ship out, just to find out that because of our stupid car accident A MONTH AGO that she’d have to be reevaluated to leave.

We had to leave at 11am so I could take Leilani to work and then I went home to take a nap, so I have no idea if she got to go, but she did send me a text around 2pm telling me thank you for coming. Which I responded to but never heard anything back, so I’m hoping she got to leave today since she’s been waiting for this for months :)


*sigh* is it REALLY that serious?

*sigh* is it REALLY that serious?

I don’t even know how to discuss this picture without just rambling about probably nothing. I’m seriously tired of the kbitch bird pictures, like I’m pretty sure the photographer made her do this, but seriously girl………..just……….ugh nevermind. Her whole luck in this world just bothers the shit out of me, so when I see pictures like this, it just pisses me off.

Posed or not.

*shakes head*

Again with the run around….

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009



Why can’t anyone tell us what’s going on, like seriously its just making people worry even more by not saying anything at all & just canceling tour dates.

I am glad that Tyson is getting to rest waaaaay longer then they first intended and I really hope it helps :(

Countdown to how long it takes them to post something on their site….

ty hospital

Tyson Ritter of The All-American Rejects

I spoke to you just days before this picture was taken and even then I knew something was wrong, despite the cast on your leg. But that heartache that the look in your eyes gave me that day, had NOTHING on the heartbreak I felt at the sight of this picture.

I don’t know WHO’S brillant idea it was to post this picture up with NO DESCRIPTION but I’m starting to wonder if they did it for shits & giggles, when they know what kinda drama by doing so would cause. Because now everyone is freaking out with the sight of this picture and the little to NO information we have with what’s going on with Tyson.

Plus it doesn’t help that Mike (the guitarist) posted up a message the other day announcing the canceling of their appearance on the Blink-182 Birmingham & St. Louis shows; and telling people that it’s nothing to worry about. Day later this picture is posted up on the rejects’ twitter.


It took everything in me not to cry at the site of this picture, he looks like he’s in so much pain and running a high fever with how red his face looks. Not to mention he looks like he’s freezing his ass off despite the site of him looking like he’s burning up with a fever.

And that’s not even the half of it, the first thing that popped in my head was how he looked like he was dying and what if he was the NEXT celebrity to die since celebrities have been just dying like crazy the past few years. Which then threw me into a deep depression, because I can’t even imagine not ever being able to talk to Tyson again.

I mean I’ve known him since 2003 and I wouldnt say we were ‘friends’ or anything, but I do know that he cares a great deal for me & Leilani, because that’s just how he is. He has such a huge heart and tries to care for everyone, but gets taken advantage in the process, so he tends to lash out or just close off to everyone, which I think is what he has done recently and I don’t like it.

I also feel like I may of had a hand in that, since I hardly get to see or talk to them now a days, back in the day I would see/talk to them like once a month because we were going to so many shows. This year I’ve only seen them twice in concert, but only got to talk to them at one show and there’s been a huge change with Tyson since then.

I also feel like his break up with Kim (his girlfriend of 6 years) took him to the top of this tree of change & he’s now taking a nose dive down it, hitting all the branches on the way down. Its just so weird to see someone change so much and I dunno it just seems like I’m watching a car accident in slow mo and I feel utterly helpless.

I mean you can’t deny the difference between 2005 & now 2009.



There’s really no point in this post at all, but that I’m just a stupid worried fan, that I happen to know this guy and just want him to get better, both with what’s going on with him right now & whatever emotional problems he may be battling as well.

This guy means a great deal to me and I think what bothers me most, is his band/music is what helped me through the death of my grandparents and now to see him like this in the hospital just hits me in all kinds of crazy ways.

I mean this was the guy that told me he was sorry about the loss of my grandma, BEFORE I even got a chance to tell him about it (someone else told him) and then proceeded to cry with me & fan my face so that I would stop, lol.

And all kinds of other cherished memories I have with him over these 6 years i’ve known him and to see him in any kind of pain is just unacceptable for me, since he’s brought light in millions of people’s dark days through his music & just being such an all around beautiful person.

Please get well Tyson, I hope to see you soon.


Who wants to go home early? *hand raises*

Saturday, September 5th, 2009
Finished our work before high noon today!

Finished our work before high noon today!

So I volunteered to go home early, but I actually have a good reason (granted I’m not doing it right now) but shit I have to pack! I leave for the airport in *counts on fingers* 14 hours! Plus I mean we did EVERYTHING we usually have to do on an event day before lunch time, which is crazy! I’m even talking about we did our fucking chair set at 9 fucking 30 in the morning! We usually don’t do that until about 2pm on event days O_o

Normally I would of stayed just because, but I actually figured I could use the extra time to pack, so I dont have a panic attack when I’m at the airport and realize what I forgot – LIKE I ALWAYS DO, haha. Especially this being in another country and being gone for so long, i’m sure i’m gonna need more then what I usually take with me, so yea, gotta fucking make sure I have everything.

But yea pretty much at work everything was done at 11:30, so me, Jay & Jennifer volunteered to go home early. Which Jennifer started talking about not wanting to go home right away, so I told her she could come hang at my house for a bit while I packed, haha.

On the way home I got an IM from a Reject fan telling me that the All-American Rejects just announced their Fall Tour dates (which i just checked their site & they’re not up there) and that it’s ending with 3 shows in Florida o_O

12/04 – The Swamp – Fort Walton Beach, FL
12/05 – House of Blues – Orlando, FL

Yea definately doing that shit, haha. And maybe a few shows before those 3 if they’re not in any crazy places, lol. Like if there’s one on Leilani’s birthday that is driveable O_o

I tweeted about these dates and was instantly IMed about Casey asking about them & she found em on AAR’s message board and come to find out that there’s also 2 Oklahoma shows, which I would LOVE to go to since I havent been back to Oklahoma since 2005 & miss Mama Ritter hardcore :(

11/24 – Coca Cola Bricktown – Oklahoma City, OK
11/25 – Cain’s Ballroom – Tulsa, OK

We’ll see how that pans out, but I don’t think it’ll happen since we’re thinking of going to LA for the New Moon premiere, haha.

Around this is when me & Jenn got back to my house. Ate our lunches that we took to work today thinking we were gonna still be there, haha. Then just hung out in my room before leaving to go home & crash.

Starting to feel like home again, lol.

Starting to feel like home again, lol.

I love how trips messes my room up and this being such a long trip I can ONLY IMAGINE how much shit I bring back or how big of a mess it’ll be when I unpack my suitcase & bookbag, lol.
