wow. alright so mike, heather and i left harding friday following michelle to texas. we got there a few hours later and spent the weekend with her family and friends and penny
. we looked at christmas lights and went to her church (very reminiscent of ccoc
btw just more conservative, etc.). her family is amazing and very hosipitable. x)
we went to michelle's friend ethan's 21st bday party and it was pretty cool. after more than 10 people showed up. got to meet a lot of real cool people and just talk about music and stuff. i'll post links up here when i get them and stuff x) y'all should definately check them out.
mmmmm Y from first to last Y
let's just say amazing. but of course, the other bands were great, too. the order was dead reckless he is legend haste the day from first to last
did you know that sonny
(from first to last
's singer) is
the younger brother of schuylar
(he is legend'
s singer)? i just found that out during the show. everyone put on a great show. supposedly in march haste the day, everytime i die
and the bled
are supposed to be playing at the door
in dallas. sounds good.
so from first to last
played failure by designer jeans
which is only on the web and i've wanted to see them perform it forever! they played the original emily
, not the toybox remix. and they played either christmassacre
(which i just found out is new today) or x12 days of xxxmasx
. so it was prolly christmassacre
cuz the other song is ancient and i can't find it anywhere. they also played 2 new songs that are from their new cd that will be released in march.
so. they close with emily
, right? soo everyone leaves the pit and goes to relax with their friends/girls/whatevers. then of course an encore. they play that christmas song. i just kind of sit there enjoying it. i don't know it so i couldn't dance or sing. then i looked at mike and said that they hadn't played ride the wings of pestilence
yet. well, what do you know, it's a double encore. they play it. i run to the pit. when the song is ending sonny leans down into the crowd. some dude put me up and sonny grabbed my hair and yelled, "yea man!" and i grabbed his hair and yelled, "i love you!" then i convulsed for the next hour and couldn't think straight or talk properly. i was a mess. i felt like a 12 year old girl that just saw justin timberlake wink at her during a show.
then we slept at cora's and left wednesday morning to head to searcy then back to jersey. we drove straight through basically from tyler, tx to collingswood, nj. tonight my brother is in a nativity and i'm having a high school reunion. i'm so glad to be back but i'm so stressed and.. i really do regret not bringing my car home. but.. things will work. i need to shop and spend time with my family. it's great to be home. even though.. i've been alone for the past hour+ i've been home..
