Guess who is the proud new owner of two (count them, two) new CELEBRITY albums...yeah, me. As of 12:18am in the line at Super Kmart, I have been in possession of the greatest album ever. [Okay, major exaggeration, but I'm so psyched right now, it's great.]

The road to success wasn't all paved with gold and lined with lemon drops though. I'll start with the early events of the evening.

Tonight was Steph's party, which was fun. Zoe and I had some quality talking time. We've done that a lot lately. When everyone else left around 9, it was only about 8 of her closest friends. Zoe and I were planning on leaving when the party broke up to watch Empire Record. They decided to watch Down to Earth (not to be confused with Here on Earth with Leelee Sobieski and Chris Klein, or Down to You with Freddie Prinz Jr and Julia Stiles) this was the Chris Rock flick. Zoe had already seen it, and though I sort of wanted to stay, I more wanted to watch Empire Records. We left and came back to my house. As we watched, we talked about NSYNC. She wasn't really a fan, but she watched the View this morning and was cracking up at how fun they were. She knew a lot about them because last school year she had lunch with Jessie (our resident NSYNC fanatic) and Leah (only slightly less of a fanatic). She said that she just loved their personalities and after listening to their music, found herself boppin' along. It's like on the Road to Celebrity when JC said that Janet audiences rejected them at first, but by the end of their set, they knew they had hooked some fans.

My sister found the Teen Vogue (they were the same I had seen twice, but it was good I didn't buy them because she already had). I read through, and though the pictures were good, the Seventeen article was better. YM was too, but the Seventeen one was just awesome. Zoe looked through the mag also, and said she couldn't wait to watch them on Leno tonight. I took her home at 10:30 and got back right in time to start taping Jay and the boys. They were cute as always, but they didn't say anything new. Obviously we all know that Chris is single since he broke up with Dani, and Lance is single because the past three shows they were on asked. Juppy's dating Brit, and Joey and JC have significant others, though they have not specified anyone in particular. They, of course, discussed Joey's accident, then later sang "Pop". It wasn't too exciting, but JC was cute, so it was worth taping.

When Leno was over, I snuck out of my house (I didn't really tell my mom I was planning on going out at 11:45 to get a CD. I left a note on my bed, and had my cell phone, ya know, in case she worried too much. So, at 11:45, I drove out to the Wal-mart in Buffalo Grove, assuming that all Wal-mart's stayed open 24 hours. Arriving at exactly 12:02, I found out that...They don't. Minor setback. I drive through the parking lot and change my path to head to Vernon Hills. I knew there was a Wal-mart there, and (better yet) a Super Kmart - which is guaranteed to be open 24 hours a day, every day (except maybe Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years). I decide to turn into Super K, cus I know it's open and it came first on the road. I enter at about 12:15, and walk directly to the electronics sections. Though there are quite a few people (probably about 10) entering at the same time I was, and about 5 very noticeable NSYNC fans already in the checkout lines, there was no real frenzy that I was half-hoping for. I get in line and check out at 12:18 (according to the receipt). I need to make sure I keep the receipt, because I'll get a free poster when they come in. Nifty, huh? I exit to the parking lot, and take the CD changer out. I replace BBMak with NSYNC (it's only temporary, but it's the only one whose position I know). I listen to it on the way home. When I got home at precisely 12:36, I added the Celebrity box to the stack of CDs I have to give back to my sister, cus I borrowed them to burn. I left the one CD in the car, and immediately opened the other to put it in my stereo. The next thing I do (of course) is come to update my Live Journal, cus I was so overly excited. Now I have to write in the NSYNCER community journal, just cus I feel like sharing my excitement. Later I will give my opinions and ratings of each track, but for now I'm just enjoying the couple tracks I haven't heard (currently, out of the first 10 tracks, I had heard them all except one. Between the concert and downloading mp3s, I've listened to them all. Cool, huh?)

Later all! Go buy Celebrity, maybe we can break the last album's record sales. We need 3 million in this first week!!!!!

    You're kidding right? The Celebrity album of course!!!!!!!!!

Happy NSYNC Day everybody!!!

I have decided to make a new 2-day holiday. It's called NSYNC Day. This was yesterday, and the celebration continues into today. I decided it was fitting because for the past 27 hours, my life has been almost non-stop NSYNC-afied. It started at 10am yesterday with them on the View, then I journaled (mostly about NSYNC) from 11 until 12:30, when I watched Road to Celebrity. Later at night, I read their article in Teen Vogue and watched them on Leno. Following this, I trekked out to be one of the first to buy Celebrity. In the middle of the night, I walked into Super Kmart and proudly bought two copies of the CD (that I'm currently listening to for the 8th, yes EIGHTH time in 12 hours). Did I mention I didn't sleep much last night? Now, I am waiting to watch TRL, since they will be appearing VIA satellight. Hopefully they will be on for a while. If not, at least "Pop" will be number one again. To make sure of this, I plan on voting (multiple time). It's NSYNC Day, they have to come out on top. It's only right.

Anyways, just wishing y'all the best NSYNC Day ever. Keep the boys in mind all day, play Celebrity on repeat and be a happier and better person for it!

    Hmmm...I'll give you 3 guesses (though you won't need them)


My Afternoon conversation with my sister --

Me: stupid girls on TRL...one chicky got a question (about nsync of course) for a chance to win a CD and tickets or something...question was: which nsyncer is wearing a tie on the cover. she took a full minutes before guessing. I was like "Justin, duh." am I obsessed?
Chris: yes... you are. I wouldn't have come up with that.
Me: really? it took me about 0.2 seconds
Me: damn
Me: i suck
Chris: yep
Me: how many times have you listened to the cd?
Chris: Um... three or four. I don't know.
Chris: Since I am working I haven't really been keeping track.
Me: ha! 11
Me: honestly (no exaggeration)
Chris: you're scary
Me: it's NSYNC Day
Chris: YEAH! I can't wait to get off so I can celebrate.
Me: indeed
Chris: May have to have a Mike's and pretend it's called a Lance.
Chris: since he is the group alcoholic... per the slash
Me: see, i would peg Juppy as the alcoholic
Chris: Oh yeah. Or even Chris.
Me: next question: which celeb does joey not thank? a) marylin monroe, b) marylin manson, c) paul rubens d.) sandra bullock
Chris: marylin manson
Me: i got this one right away too, but so did the chick on the show
Me: yeah!! you are good
Chris: I read that one. And Chris's. But that's it.
Chris: Justin's and JC's are too long!
Me: i read all five before bed last night
Me: i suck
Chris: I would have read them all already, but you know, I have to work and stuff.
Chris: I'll have them memorized by the time I go to sleep.
Me: bah, no work...it's NSYNC Day
Me: question three: which of the following songs does not have lyrics in cd booklet a)celebrity b)game is over c)pop d)selfish
Me: i got this one right away too
Chris: selfish
Me: good
Chris: I only know this cause you told me only the first six songs have lyrics.
Me: yea me
Chris: I am listening to Selfish right now!
Me: wow...it's a sign for........something
Chris: it's a sign I should have taken today off!
Me: yep...want me to come get you now? tough you have to wait until TRL is over
Chris: no, pick me up at 5ish. I'll just keep gritting my teeth, biting my tounge, and hang in there.
Me: question four: how many tracks on celebrity are credited to justin
Chris: Um... 8
Chris: ?????
Me: there are 7, but carson's card said 6...checking the inside cover, i spy 7
Me: carson's asking justin during the next song cus he's already on the line
Me: hee hee hee...on the line [<- Lance�s new movie, for those of you living in a handbag]
Me: sorry
Me: bad me
Chris: yeah, I had the same thought. WE suck.
Me: yes, we do
Me: the boys are standing by for their TRL interview (and they look amazing like always)
Chris: ooooooooooooo
Chris: i'm jealous!
Me: you should be
Me: joey's wearing a shirt that says "tell your kids it's not nice to point at me"
Chris: It should say "Fathers, keep your daughters away from me."
Me: yes well, either way, it's damn funny
Me: this girl asked the question: "on the new album there's a lot of songs about breaking up (gone, game is over, see right through you) are these from personal experience, I hope they're personal"
Me: i almost died laughing
Chris: she "hopes" their personal
Chris: She wants the puppies hearts to be broken?
Chris: Bitch.
Me: no, she wanted the puppies to herself...bitch...they can keep their girlfriends, I have no problem being "the other girl"
Chris: "one in every port" - I think the old saying went
Chris: So, what number was Pop? I didn't vote today. I'm so terrible.
Me: pop was number one...i voted three times
Chris: well, that makes up for me.
Me: but they couldn't really show any of it, cus they ran out of time
Me: :o(
Chris: oh jeez. was it good?
Me: eh, the boys seemed a bit off...they are better in person
Me: they never get crazy or show off when they are only on via satellight
Chris: cause they can't see the audience. no one to show off for.
Me: no, i think they don't enjoy their teenie fans
Me: but they would show off for carson
Chris: It's hard to enjoy teeny fans when they are all screamy and grabby. I would hate that!
Chris: we are the ideal fans!
Me: yeah...totally
Me: we are fun and aren't annoying as all hell
Chris: exactly. we would be cool to hang with and wouldn't be all "look at me!" "I am so the girl for you!" "Dump Brittney, marry me!"
Me: i think juppy and pinky are cute together
Me: he was so sweet on leno
Chris: I like them together.
Me: road to celebrity is on (again)...but it's gone...which means the "sittin' here"...*gasp*
Me: i don't know what it is about they ways he says it, but *squeeeeee!*

This basically sums up my afternoon. Watching TRL, listening to Celebrity (that�s right, I�m now on my 12th time around), and talking to my sister while she�s at work. The fact that she was working was the reason I was chatting more than she was. I think I�m proud of my fanaticism. It's not like I loose my mind when I see them. There are two types of fan, the cool ones, and the "teenies" (a word I used often). I am definitely NOT a teenie, so I must be the cool kind. If I ever met them, I wouldn't go all postal. If they started a conversation, I would be like "Hey, how's it going? That's good, I'm fine, having fun this summer, it's been great. See ya later, bye guys." No hyperventilating for me. I like the men behind the music. (Oh, big step, I think that's the first time I've referred to them as men. It's usually, "my boys" or something possessive and silly.

Gotta dash, but I'll be back later! Again, have a great NSYNC Day and do something special in honor of it.
