I SEE YOU BOBBY LONG GETTING IGNORED! LAMESAUCE! (via heartkbitch)

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.

January

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

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

Febuary

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.

March

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 :)

April

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.

May

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!’ :)

June

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.

July

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

August

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 :)

September

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.

October

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!

November

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!

December

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

Saw Bobby Long last nite

Sunday, November 8th, 2009

bl11709

And as always was amazing as shit. Not only LIVE playing his music but also afterwards when I got to talk to him for a few minutes. Plus I think it’s cute that he always ask me if I’m ok everytime he seems me now, because the first time we were to see him me & my friends got in a car accident and missed his set completely but went afterwards just to say ‘hi’ :)

WHAT WASN’T AMAZING ABOUT THE SHOW……….

The fucking crowd.

First of all me and my friends we’re looking forward to this one lady that we ASSUMED would be going to this show since she was at the other two. And the reason for that was she was talking all through Bobby’s set in August and making really gross flirty comments. Then on top of that after the show in August she took a long time with Bobby (the bar was getting pissed cuz the m&g was taking so long) and we almost didnt get to talk to him or anything.

My friend Jennifer isnt a very paitent person and mumbled something as the lady FINALLY finished with Bobby, which the lady then either called my friend a bitch or said something like ‘wow bitchy?’ or some shit. Which she wouldnt of been that way if you didnt have Bobby sign like a MILLION SHITTY ASS PICTURES and then stand there and try to conversate with him forEVER.

So like I said that was one thing we were really not looking forward to AT ALL about the show, but when we GOT to the show that was a whole other story.

First there was some bullshit where they let everyone in at 8pm, but then kicked everyone out just to re-let everyone BACK IN at 8:30pm. It took us almost an hour and a half just to get in the place just because they didnt fucking know what they were doing and at one point didnt look like they were gonna sell tickets to the people that didn’t have tickets already (i.e. us).

Also all through all this I was literally playing hide & seek with @pokerstarlight via texts since she was at that show as well. I am ALL FOR meeting people, but it’s just so funny how shy I get about it! hahaha – I of course ended up meeting her once we got in and talked for a few minutes before she ditched me to go talk to Phil!!!! lol

We finally get in and have to go stand all the way to the left of the stage since everyone is crowded around the right of the stage. Which our spot wasn’t bad at all since it looked like everyone was gonna sit on the floor like we did last time!

REWIND!

Yea so me and all my friends last time at the Bobby show started a trend and EVERYONE up front sat on the floor during his entire set, true story. It was actually probably one of my favorite concert experience, i dunno it was relaxing and I just could appreciate the music more even though I was taking pictures at the same time. But it wasn’t stressful at all or anything because I didn’t have anyone blocking my view and I knew I wasn’t blocking anyone else’s view.

So we all got happy seeing that people were gonna do that again (sit during his set)………….yea WRONG ANSWER! As soon as Bobby got on stage EVERYONE STOOD THE FUCK UP! Which sucked cuz most of them were either the same height as me or a little bit taller.

*sigh*

That of course depressed me a little because that limited me being able to take pictures at all for this show, which don’t get me wrong I walked around trying to find other angles or openings I could find to take pictures, but couldn’t find anything :(

So I went back to standing with the ladies by the left of the stage.

Enter in first group of girls that almost got their ass stomped to the ground.

bl117camera

Ok this hand doesn’t belong to the main girl I’m about to rant about, but if I remember correctly she was friends with that girl and because of that she would of ended up with a broken camera and an empty can of whoopass.

This one girl stood in front of me and my friends (a person away from the stage) and the ENTIRE TIME while Bobby played she’d either sway back and forth (not to the music) and constantly whisper something into her friend’s ear in which they would then start laughing about WHATEVER.

Then to make matters worse, from what Leilani & Angelina told me was that her big ass purse she was wearing she kept hitting them with it, not on purpose (I HOPE NOT) but still annoying because she kept having to move to tell her friend something.

Oh also did I mention that she was like 3 or 4 inches taller then me?! Yea so if you want a reason to why I don’t have that many pictures of Bobby from this show, you best believe I’m blaming that shit ON HER.

The ONLY good thing about this group of girls was that they seemed to be making fun of the lady (I was talking about above) on how she was taking pictures, which I will admit was funny because we were doing it too at some point, haha.

bl117blue

The other issue we had with the group was right before Bobby played Two Years Old these loud VERY DRUNK girls showed up and was yelling out different songs they wanted him to sing, in which I think he played 2 Years Old since they kept yelling it at one point. Then of course since he played a song they yelled out they very loudly and very DRUNKLY SANG THE LYRICS WITH HIM.

VERY FUCKING ANNOYING, OK?

Don’t get me wrong, singing along is fine and all, but when it’s just like 4 girls that are so loud that you cant help but hear them instead of Bobby, yea people should get cut. And I’m being serious, which these girls almost did, because at one point they spilled their beer on Angelina’s feet.

Yea like I said *shakes head* some girls almost got swung on, for real, but I for one didn’t wanna freak Bobby out, because they were annoying him as well, you could tell, so I just let it go, but Angelina & Leilani I think almost went on a murder spree, for real, haha.

Why we had to have all the assholes where we were standing is beyond me, but we did and it almost ruined the whole show, but Leilani shooting people with her iPhone made it down right hilarious. Also some of the remarks Bobby would say in between songs would help as well :)

These were also the same girls that when I was talking to Bobby after the show (having a good convo, which is very rare for me) but in and tried to guilt trip him into leaving with her & her friends, even though he had a HUGE line of fans waiting to talk to him. The girl really had some nerve, if you ask me and I of course was too shocked to have whooped her ass myself, haha.

But seriously I good 90% of that crowd last nite you could tell weren’t there because of the music and was more there to either hit on Bobby or to use him to get to Robert, who he is really close friends with.

Which is fucking LAME.

Don’t get me wrong if it wasn’t for him being friends with Robert I would of never heard his music, but now that I have I’m more focused on just the music aspect, plus it doesnt help that he’s really sweet and funny :)

HOLYSHITBOBBYLONGOMGWTF

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009

So I’m going through my Forks, WA/Vancouver, BC pictures and go to my pictures from the Bobby Long show I saw in Vancouver and um….

O_O

O_O

HOLYSHITBOBBYLONGWTFAREYOUDOINGWITHYOURTONGUE?!

Yea I don’t think of Bobby Long like that AT ALL, but I can’t deny the thoughts in my head as I came across this in my batch of pictures. I mean don’t get me wrong he is cute as hell and his accent is mouth watering, but I really am all about his music….but OMG this picture is just….

I dont even know, you know?

Day 2 of our 10 Day Vaca

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

We woke up to more beautiful Forks weather – POURING RAIN, haha.

Beautiful Forks, WA weather.

Beautiful Forks, WA weather.

Our whole plan was to leave Forks by 11am since it was gonna take 5-6 hrs to get to Vancouver, giving us enough time so we weren’t late for the Bobby Long show that nite.

We got ready & checked out of our little Forks hotel. Saw a twimom & her daughter leave their (probably twilight room), which the mom was wearing a Jasper shirt O_o

Since we got into Forks so late the day before & cuz Katie was sick we didn’t really see much, so we decided to go look at certain places before leaving Forks – HOPEFULLY before 11am like we planned.

Found the 2nd ‘welcome to Forks’ sign that me & Leilani were talking about the night before when we were driving back from Port Angeles.

I'm smiling so big cause Leilani just slipped in the mud trying to get to the Forks sign and well it was kinda funny.

Then drove over to Forks Outfitters where me & Katie went in to look at Forks shirts, since I wanted one.

The Twilight Zone at Forks Outfitters

Ended up buying a ‘Team Edward’ shirt that says ‘forks, wa’ under it and Leilani a Jasper shirt (don’t remember what it said, haha).

Forks Hospital

Then we drove over to Forks Community Hospital and visited Dr. Cullen’s parking spot.

In which Katie was trying to steal, lol.

After that we went over to City Hall since that’s where the police station was & took a picture with one of the cruisers.

Seriously this is like the best mustache picture of ALL TIME, just saying.

Leaving City Hall to turn around we randomly found the ’supposedly’ Cullen House, haha.

But after that we went to the Dazzled by Twilight store and was in there for awhile trying to figure out what to buy, which I ended up getting something stupid/little for Jennifer & Angelina and Katie got something I don’t remember what it was though, oh wait she bought a shot glass I think, haha

Dazzled By Twilight

Left there to go look at the other Dazzled by Twilight store which was for booking their tours, haha.

After which we left to go fill up the car and then left Forks for Vancouver.

Welcome To Port Angeles

Upon arriving into Port Angeles our directions told us we were taking a ferry from there, so we pull up to the ferry ticket booth – never done this before so completely confused the whole time.

The bubble gum smacking girl (looked like a teenager) said all this shit really fast, something about it being $77, which i repeated “dollars?!” and she’s like “Yea & I need your passports.” Which all of us were like O_O ‘wtf?’ handed it over and just sat there like wtf.

She gave us a ticket for the car, told us the ferry will board at 4:45pm, when drive forward & some guy stamped it and told us where to park. Thats when the car just fell into silence and then I asked Leilani to show me the directions on her phone. Yea the fucking ferry we just paid $77 for was taking us into Canada & then we’d drive a few & then have to take ANOTHER ferry.

Plus it was only like 2pm or some shit and that’s just crazy to sit here and wait that long for a fucking ferry knowing you’d have to be taking another one & no idea how long we’d have to wait for that ferry. So I told Leilani to look up direction to Seattle from where we were, to see how far of a drive that was.

It ended up being like an hour & a half drive and there were ferries leaving at 3:45 & 4:30, so after arguing with Leilani to go back inside & see if we could get a refund, her & Katie went in to see if we could get a refund and leave.

LUCKILY they were and we halled ass out of there and back through Port Angeles towards the Kingston Ferry. The other plus to this route was there was only ONE ferry & then 3 hour drive to Vancouver, which would put is arriving at our hotel around 7pm.

We get to the Kingston pier or whatever it’s called and miss the 3:45 ferry, but pay $15 for the 4:30 one. So not only did we pay less for this ferry but we would also be leaving before the other one (since yea it was loading at 4:45 but it actually left at 5:15).

The Kingston Ferry

The Kingston Ferry

Watched the rain fall & these huge ass seagulls fight over food, before they loaded us onto the ferry, which then Leilani lost her damn mind because we had never been on a ferry WITH A CAR, haha.

I had to go to the bathroom so me & Leilani went and find the bathroom, she went first & then I did. Doing my business when I hear this indian couple arguing outside the door, when all of a sudden the door opens & a guy was like O_O

Which I was like O_O

Da fuck? I thought the door was lock AND on top of that I’m gonna have to kill Leilani cuz she LEFT ME! SOLIDER DOWN!

Luckily they were probably as embarassed as I was because they weren’t outside the door when I left to go back to the car, haha.

Our rental can drive across water, trufax.

Our rental can drive across water, trufax.

Got back to the car and had to deal with my small case of sea sickness & Leilani’s retardness with how cool she thought it was to be on the ferry in a car, lol.

Finally the ferry docks and we leave to start our 3 hr drive to Vancouver.

71 Miles To Vancouver

Which the drive ended up not seeing like it took 3 hours, but that might of been just because we all kept reading the ‘food signs’ and everytime we’d yell ‘Taco Time!’ if there was a Taco Time listed on it, haha.

Pulled up to the canadian border & Leilani lost her shit, dunno why, lol. I of course was nervous as hell, because at this point we were so tight for time that if we had a delay (even though it was like a 30 minute wait line) we might miss the Bobby Long show. We still had to check into the hotel, find an ATM and HOPE it gives me Canadian money (haha yes i was thinking this) andthen go pick up my new twitter frie nd Brianne.

Canadian Border

The Canadian Border

Finally it’s our turn at the border person’s booth, which Leilani falls silent out of no where, haha. He asked us maybe 6 questions, handed us our passports back and that was it O_o

And here the whole time Leilani is pretty much telling us we’re gonna get butt raped with questions O_o

We then turn on our new favorite song which has been dubbed the Canada Song which is the Christian Bale remix. You know the audio of him telling some guy off on the terminator salvation set? Well they remixed it unto this techno dance type of thing and it’s really addicting, especially with all the f bombs, haha.

First thing that hit us with the BEAUTIFUL smell of Canada, which smelled like someone took a gigantic piss then went and gathered all kinds of different animals’ poop mixed it in with the puddle of piss & just let it sit and dry out in the sun.

It smelled DELICIOUS!

Finally entering the city the first thing I realize is we need gas, so I’m about to turn into this Chevron when I look up at the price and saw that it said 112.7

O_o

Yea we were all like, “Um wtf does that mean?” haha. We decided just to check into the hotel and ask the front desk guy what that meant since like I said we were kinda tight on time.

To get to downtown you gotta go over this bridge and I dunno what it was but looking at the buildings in downtown for some reason reminded me of the end of the world. It was like driving into a deserted city, it kinda freaked me out to be honest.

Welcome to Downtown Vancouver

Welcome to Downtown Vancouver

Get into downtown Vancouver and it’s totally not what I expected. It’s like NYC mixed with New Orleans; its dirty and old and just so not what I expected it at all. For some reason I guess I was expecting a more natural type of setting, but oh was I surprised, haha.

Found our hotel which me & Leilani both said a “oh…” when we saw the sign, haha. Pulled up & I got out to check in just to be told we were gonna have to pay an extra $80, blah. Luckily he took US Dollars since that’s all we had at the moment. Asked him where the nearest ATM & Bank was (so I could get money out & Katie could exchange her US money) and then went up to our room at 226.

First thing I did while everyone was unpacking was tested the wireless internet we were guaranteed & yea there was none at all.

Made Leilani call down to see what the hell was up, which since it was grandpa around the desk he had no idea what the fuck she was talking about & just repeated what he told me at the desk. Which then reminded me that he did say something about the connection being very weak & having to move towards the center of the hotel.

So I took my laptop out to by the elevators and yea totally worked fine >:O

Not gonna lie, up until that point I was freaking out because when we got to the canadian border I turned my phone off and then just to get to our room to see we have no internet, I freaked the fuck out, because we didn’t know where the bobby long show was at our how to get there. So I NEEDED internet so I knew how to get there, but Leilani ended up just saying ‘fuck it’ and turning her phone on to help us get there.

Everyone got ready and we left to go pick up Brianne at the Sheraton which was right up the street from us, haha. Funny thing is I was actually walking up to the Sheraton to see if they had an ATM, so right as I got to the bellhop/valet people to ask them, Brianne came walking out the hotel, haha.

Ended up being a 7-11 right behind the hotel, so I took her back to where the car was parked, introduced her to Leilani & Katie and then took off for the 7-11.

The whole time I was trying to take money out of the atm, I kept asking if not praying that it would give me Canadian money & not US Dollars. Granted I figured it wouldnt since I was in Canada, but I dunno for some reason there was this fear that I would get US Money.

I giggled out loud when the Canadian money was spit out of the ATM machine. It looks like play money! haha

High roller in TWO countries, lol.

High roller in TWO countries, lol.

Ran back to the car and took off for the Bobby Long show at the Backstage Lounge. Which was an adventure all by itself trying to find, THEN having to find a place to park. Let me just say that the area it was in at night looks like a haunted carnival, which was alone creepy as hell, haha.

Once we did park, I realized that I forgot my professional camera O_o

So I went and got everyone into the show & then me and Leilani left to go back to the hotel to get the camera, haha.

Got the camera and got back to the venue, which we did get lost again, but got there right before Bobby started playing at little after 10:30pm, haha.

Stood dead center about 4 people back, which was fine with me until this girl with a HUGE FUCKING HEAD AND HUGE FUCKING HAIR that she had put up all ‘pretty’ stood right in front of me >:o

Brianne ended up helping me move more to the left of the stage, which I then spotted a small spot up front that no one was standing in, so I cut through the crowd to the spot and sat on the stage for the whole show.

Bobby Long performs at Backstage Lounge in Vancouver.
Bobby Long performs at Backstage Lounge in Vancouver.

Words can not explain to you the amazingness that is Bobby Long. I remember before I left Leilani to go sit on the stage that I told her something was wrong with him and it made me sad. Then as I sat on the stage halfway through his set (which he wasnt talking much) he said something about him being depressed, which really made me sad, because I totally could pick up on it and felt bad and then for all the twimoms that were there to still be acting all flirty with him, when he’s clearly upset with something, but he did still made a few jokes, still didnt shake off the really sad vibe he was giving off :(

At one point towards the end of the show I get a tap on my shoulder & look over at Brianne that was trying to mouth something to me, but I didnt understand, so she gave me her phone and saw all these tweets about some of the cast members being at the show.

O_O

Yea that messed up my whole night, but a HUGE part of me wanted to stay and watch the rest of Bobby’s set, but then the other part wanted to at least get a glimpse of the cast that was there, because to be honest I didn’t have my hopes up at seeing them at all this whole trip, just so I could handle the disappointment. So I wait til Bobby finishes the song he was singing and then left the crowd.

She told me that supposedly Nikki Reed, her boyfriend Paris, Jackson, Elizabeth, Kristen & Robert were there and standing somewhere near the door/merch. We ended up walking to the bathroom to see if we could see anything, which I didn’t, but once we got in the bathroom Brianne thinks she saw Nikki & Elizabeth.

Some lady that was in the bathroom said that Elizabeth took some pictures with fans in the bathroom, so not to take away from the show, but other then that no one was bothering them, which I thought was good.

We then thought the show was almost over so we decided to go outside hopefully to catch them leaving. Which was not the case at all, the show ended up ending like 30 minutes later and what went from like 4 papz & just maybe 4 fans outside, turned into triple that and this crazy shit happened….

 

O_o

All my friends at home are gonna hate me since I’m the one that filmed this video.

It was probably the saddest thing I’ve ever seen (well i dunno the whole Remember Me set was pretty depressing). One thing I thought was funny was I stood right next to the front of the taxi trying to record and EVERYONE and I do me EVERYONE was glued to the back passenger door which is where Rob was, fighting for a shot.

As soon as the taxi started to leave people started crowding around me, since the taxi pulled up and stopped right in front of me, which is when that drunk girl screamed out “Kristen you’re a bitch!” No idea why she said that, but she was drunk off her ass, granted that shouldnt give her an ‘thats ok’ reason for saying it.

And if you guys know me, i’m not a Kristen fan at all, but even I WOULDN’T of said that to her, especially in that situation, I felt so bad for her and Robert with how crazy the papz & fans were.

But for those of you that want to track down and kill the girl that said that, she’s the girl that says ‘i dont give a shit, i wanna go home’ in my video, lol.

 After that I went back inside, because i wanted to talk to Bobby, guy at the door (like before) wouldn’t let me in because of my big ass camera (I guess once the show is over i’m considered papz? since they didnt care either – seriously i asked AJ Mclean and he didnt care [sorry the guy was trying to look like AJ from BSB so we kept calling him that all night]), so I gave Leilani my camera to hold and he let me in.

Bought a shirt & poster, yea got the hook up, Phil is pretty awesome if I do say so myself. Talk to Bobby for a few seconds, but he was still trying real hard to fight off the depressing vibe, but it was still there, especially in his eyes. He signed my poster and rolled it up, which I joked about how he should get tipped for doing that & that I would of but I didnt have anything smaller then a $20 lol.

I asked for a picture, which he explained he would but he had to leave in 10 minutes for a flight and if he took one he’d be stuck taking tons, which i totally understood, he didn’t have to explain at all, i just thought i’d asked. It was just really sad to watch him explain, cuz he looked like he thought I would hate him if he didn’t take a picture with him, which just made me think that I’m sure some twi-mom/hards gave him lip for that very excuse.

Ugh, i can’t stand this fanbase for realz. Well wait fanbases in general, jesus – Lightning/Rejects/Twilight *shakes head*

After that we all left, took Brianne home, which consisted of driving through Cracktown Vancouver on Hastings, lol.

Dropped her off & went back to the hotel & crashed.

Day Off? Pfff riiight

Saturday, September 5th, 2009

So today was my only day off before we leave for Vancouver on Sunday and holy shit it was so much fun! Of course it didn’t fucking start that way >:o

The plan was Jennifer was gonna come over around 9:50am and then we were gonna drive to Brandon to see if Vinnie was skating today. Well for me NOT being a morning person I was planning on waking up at 9:30am, doing my fitness, getting ready and then by that time I figured Jennifer would be at my house.

Yea totally didn’t work out that way.

First of all, I had the urge to blow up a college campus today, ONLY BECAUSE I get a motherfucking phone call at 9:06am from an unknown number (i dont answer my phone EVER cuz i hate talking on phones), look at the time and seriously almost threw my phone out the window because I knew there was NO POINT in trying to go back to sleep when I knew my alarm clock would be going off in less then 30 minutes.

>:o

I laid in bed for a few more minutes to let the anger ease a little before rolling out of bed with a sigh. Did my fitness, ate half a bowl of cheerios and then tried to activate my new credit card just to find out i didnt have all the info to do that, so I had to actually talk to an operator for them to activate it, but Jennifer showed up while I was trying to settle all that mess.

We left a little passed 10am and headed for Brandon, giggling at the Magicial Marquee’s new saying (sorry i didnt tweet about it, but i’m picking up Leilani up tomorrow and figured i’d do it then) & trying to see if we could see any cars as we passed the skating rink. We pulled into the parking lot & the first thing I noticed was like 2 or 3 people standing by this black car with a tall ass guy facing them. Which immediate thing that pops in my head is it’s a hockey player, then of course my brain goes through the database of who it could be, well in this case I didnt even have to do that because I knew who it was immediately.

And just as instant as I knew who it was, I was overcome with uncontrollable sadness :(

It was Vaclav Prospal #20 of the Tampa Bay Lightning (or was, now with the New York Rangers) or to me & my friends ‘Prospal’ *sigh* He’s been a favorite of mine since the first time he was here with the Lightning (he’s left us 2 other times as well), he was just always so animated and funny & over the past few seasons has been really sweet to me at work *sigh*

Trust me I can go on and on about him, but as I pointed out to Jennifer, which went something like…

Me: “UGH!!!! Please tell me that’s NOT WHO THAT IS!”
Jennifer: “WHO?! WHERE?!”
Me: “*points* PLEASE TELL ME THAT’S NOT FUCKING PROSPAL UGH PLEASE….UGH IT IS *sigh*”
Jennifer: “PROSPAL!!! AWWWW”

Or it at least went something like that, but anyways I swear the driving to park Jenn’s car across from his went in slow mo. He was signing autographs for people and as soon as we parked had already gotten into his car and was backing out.

Right as I opened my door, he had pulled fully out and his window was down, so i started waving and smiling, which he looked over, waved, then smiled soooooooo fucking sad and waved some more. IT WAS SO SAD OMG UGH

I really am gonna miss Bling Bling man.

NYC trip to see a Rangers vs Lightning game, anyone? yes/yes?

We ended up leaving right after that since we saw that obviously the players had already skated and were leaving & it was DEFINATELY too hot to go all old school and sit out and wait for Vinnie to leave to see if he’d stop and we could talk to him.

So we end up going to the mall since that was the plan for the day – go see vinnie, hang out with leilani at the mall. Yea well Leilani I guess felt like being a douche (j/k STOP GIVING ME EVIL EYE LELAND) and stay home, so me & Jen went and hung out at the mall. Ended up buying me a mini wallet & a fucking hat THAT ACTUALLY FITS MY BIG ASS HEAD from Spencer’s.

Look how big this Edward Cullen doll is compared to a bookmark. Who the fuck would pay $150 for this?!

Look how big this Edward Cullen doll is compared to a bookmark. Who the fuck would pay $150 for this?!

Then since I’ve been looking for WEEKS for this doodle book I suggested we go to the book store they had in the mall which ended up being a Books A Million which I have never been in one of those & now that I have I enjoyed it. But just like anytime I go visit a book stores I go straight for the magazines first, then the journals and now a days look for Twilight stuff, haha.

Which omg ngl to you guys someone needs to buy me the edward doll with sunglasses so I can take funny pics of him in different places like those stupid twimoms do. SERIOUSLY I THINK IT WOULD BE FUNNY!

Anyways got to see the New Moon bookmarks finally in person, which I’m kinda disappointed, cuz they’re so much smaller then my Twilight one Leilani bought me last year & plus they’re like old school bookmarks with no plastic protector thing around it, so I dunno if I want this one, even though fucking Robert is looking DELISH on it.

Another good thing about Books A Million is Jennifer found the Michael Jackson magazine she had been looking for that I had (my mom bought it) but didnt know what store it was from. So when we went to check out we were stunned at the HUGE ASS Edward Cullen doll sitting in front of the cash register.

The hilarious part is it does NOT look ANYTHING like Edward at all, it’s so ridiculous with how big it is AND there was no Bella doll, haha. Who would pay $150 for that or $130 if you have a ‘rewards’ card, haha. Is it weird that the first thing I thought of when I saw this and how big it was, was Kellan Lutz talking about the ‘vibrating edward doll’ some fan had showed him at one of the conventions he was at O_o

Yea, moving on.

Jen preparing her yogurt at Green Berry.

Jen preparing her yogurt at Green Berry.

After Books A Million me & Jennifer were pretty hungry so we ended up going to Green Berry which is this yummy yogurt place Leilani took me too & had told Jennifer about, so I took her there and got some yummy fucking yoguart, seriously I think i’m obsessed with that place now, lol.

We paid for our yummy yogurt then decided to drive back to my house, have Katie pick us up, since she owed me her half of the money for the Vancouver trip and today was the last day I could go deposit in my account (since I work tomorrow) before the trip & then go eat lunch.

So Katie picks us up and we head to my bank and holy hell I have never had so much money in cash in my hands before and probably never will ever again. Haha even the lady at the bank was like ‘holy hell girl’ haha. I ended up depositing $1,888 into my account, putting $1,300 back into my savings (i had to borrow $1,000 from savings to cover Katie’s half til she paid me) which leaves me with $588 until next Friday, haha.

I’m thinking I’m really gonna know what a starving college student really feels like these first few days in Vancouver, haha.

After we left the bank we answered my every lasting question of “I Can Has Tias?” and went & actually had some fucking yummy Tias :)

After Tias I didnt really wanna go home yet, so I suggested we go to Borders since I had no luck at finding that doodle book, so we did. Of course traffic made it seem like it took us an hour just to get to the Borders, which in the heat we had today omg, sucked so much ass it wasnt even funny.

Got to Borders & actually found the doodle book I’ve been looking for, for WEEKS! PLUS I found a whole bunch of other ones that look even better then the one I originally found! So when i get back from Vancouver (or if i find it in Vancouver) I’m definately buying that shit :)

After Borders we went back to my house, watched the drunk video of Leilani (it’s on my facebook if you wanna see it, she for some reason doesnt want people seeing videos of her anymore *sigh*), some elvis & val videos, then Katie left to go pack and me & Jenn ended up watching Fanboys before she left to go to a dance at her church :)

I hadn’t had dinner yet, so at 9:25pm I made me some yummy sausage & onions for dinner and have been on the computer ever since, lol.

Aside from seeing Prospal being a highlight of the day, this one tops that.

Highlight of the Day

Bobby Long loves Sharks.

Bobby Long loves Sharks.

 I’ll explain the story behind this message another day, but just the ‘dont hit no sharks’ made me laugh/giggle like a 13 year old, it was funny/cute, lol. I also found out that he’s 22 years old today, which I dunno why I thought he was older then that and i dont know why when I found that out that the phrase “aw he’s a baby” popped in my head, cuz he’s not, but ugh i dunno.

What else, there was some other things i wanted to comment about, but now I can’t remember. Whatever if it comes to me (which I’m sure it wont) i’ll write about it, but I seriously gotta go to bed, i gotta wake up at 6am for work (XFC Championship) get off at 4:30pm, come home and FINALLY start packing *pulls hair out*

So have a goodnight if you’re not already, since most normal people are sleeping at 1:40am and not blogging. But for those of you that are night owls like me and havent gone to bed yet, I leave you with this……..

O_o
