Life on the LJ front

So, stuff around here has been kind of dull. Very few of the NPostors posting. JC just did and I left a lame-assed comment, but I felt I had to because it had been so long since anything good had come around. I miss all the craze and the rumors, and the fun and the laughter. *sigh* It means I have to live my own life, instead of pretending to live a superstar one. That's never cool.

This evening, I went to dinner with family and my sisters and I picked up our bridesmaid shoes and gifts for the shower on Sunday. Let me tell you, my weekend is going to be action packed, and I love it!!! After dinner and shopping, I went to Elliott's. He, Lewis, Candace and Caitlin were watching Go, so I saw the last half of it. Then we watched Dazed and Confused. Great movie, very funny, and it had Lukas from Empire Records in it. I love Lukas (but I like him more as resident record store philosophe, than pothead). After, Elliott, Lewis and I played Super Smash until one, when we went home.

My upcoming weekend: Friday is the Matchbox Twenty concert. Excited?? Just a little. It's going to be totally awesome. At 3pm, Amanda, Candace, Caitlin, Nikki and I are going to one of the best bands in the world (and they are sooooo awesome live!). It's going to be incredible. Saturday. Sometime during the day, I'm helping to set up for the bridal shower (wrap the little gifts, roll a fork and knife into a napkin and tie it with curling ribbon, and whatever else needs to be done. Then, at 6:30pm, I'm going over to Lindsay's for a sleepover. We decided that we need a girls night with no boys, so we are having a party. Sunday I must be up by 11 in order to get dressed and ready to be at the church by noon to decorate and set up for the bridal shower, which I think starts at 2. God only knows how long that will last.

It's really late right now, well not really late, just too late for me, and I need sleep. The fact that I have so many grammatical errors in this entry really irritates me, but I don't write very well, or correctly for that matter, when I am tired. I shall add more soon, don't worry.

Random stuff...mostly a rant on money though

I don't know if I already mentioned this, but the CD I made of my sister's computer programs doesn't work. I can open it, and I transfered all the folders to the hard drive, but in every application I try to open, there is some "file missing", or I don't have "access to that program". It sucks, cus I really want to stop using Paint to resize pics into icons, because it makes them look like crap. I also gacked her good media player, a movie maker, and a better version of CD Creator. Which reminds me, I need to buy more CD-Rs. I have a grand total of 5 left. Arg. Add that to the list.

I was considering going out and buying a pretty sundress or something nice to wear to the Bridal Shower. Mom said that we bridesmaids should dress a like. Our idea is to just dress a little nicer than other people. However, I have $4 and I can't to go the bank to cash a check, or even withdraw money from my account without a parent. One parent is in California, the other at work until ??? As I mentioned once before, his hours are ever changing. This would be so much easier if I had a checking account with an ATM card. But for that I need a co-sign because I'm not 18. Damn them all! Damn the man, save the Empire!

Technically in my possession I have $104. However, fifty of them is from Caitlin last night to pay back mommy for the concert tickets. (OMG, concert it tomorrow night. Am I excited? Um, HELL YES!!!) And, when she was giving me the money, I totally remembered that when Allie and I went out to breakfast last week, she paid me for hers, but because I was broke, gacked the money, and told myself to pay mommy back when I got my next paycheck. Needlesstosay, I have my mother's mind, which is *poof-gone*. However, now that I remember, I feel like I must use some of my money towards it (and if you want to get even more technical, it's not my money, it's my sister's money, but we won't get into that.) What's making me hesitate is that mommy's not coming home until Saturday night, so I might have time to go to the bank and pay her back before then. And, if I do put the money on the fridge now, with Amanda's check that she dropped off for the concerts, I am left with a grand total of $4 to my name (and a savings account to which I don't have access). This bothers me so much. I'm so bad at moral judgments. Damn it, the money's going on the fridge and I'm broke again. All I need to do is get to the back! *pleads*

I hate money. All it does is complicate things. If I have a piece of paper that says I have a balance of $xxxx.xx, I want to be able to get it. I think that's more a problem with the bank though. Maybe I'll go in there today. [Sh-yah right, I will avoid it like the plague, just like calling Jordan. Caitlin is calling him today. I love Caitlin because she does stuff for me that she knows I hate, and I try to return the favor as best I can.]

Realized there was no music playing, and when I'm around...there must be music. My playlist will be below if you feel like seeing the music I listen to. I love music. It's the best. It can tell stories, make you cry, make you smile, calm you down, wryle you up. For whatever reason, 3 Doors Down is an automatic sedative for me. If I'm really stressed, or flipping out over something, I play Kryptonite (which is not a calming song, but almost instantly, stress disappears. *Poof-gone* It's one of those weird things about me, like the car keys thing.

Just made my new icon that I am/will be using for this entry. It's my Robbie. Hee hee. I really wish I had a better program than Paint. I had to use Microsoft Word to put the text on it. It's a pain in the ass, and doesn't look half as good as other people's icons. Mmmmm...PhotoShop... *sigh* Eventually...eventually.

I'm kinda getting bored of writing in my journal. Perhaps I will shower, make lunch, then come back and play some more.

:::My Music Playlist:::
*Be Like That - 3 Doors Down
*Tired (studio version) - Matchbox 20 (*squee* tomorrow night!! Me and Robbie, we gonna hook up.)
*When I Fall - Barenaked Ladies (3 weeks from tomorrow night I will see them in concert, same place Robbie played. Rob Thomas is the coolest.)
*Wonderful Tonight - Eric Clapton
*Every Morning - Sugar Ray
*You & You & I - Matchbox Twenty
*Lost, Strain, & Butterflies - Tabitha's Secret [Yes, they are on random, I don't know why they keep playing my Robbie, but I don't mind either. Never heard these songs before? They are unreleased or from his previous band Tabitha's Secret...download them.]
*Drive Myself Crazy - NSYNC :o)
*You Take Away - Staind
*Life of My Own - 3 Doors Down

Okay, so I lied --or-- "Concert tickets, and concert...tickets..."

I'm back (of course I haven't take a shower or made lunch yet. Bah, the child can wait a half hour).

For those wondering, the concert tickets quote is from 10 Things I Hate About You when Bianca is going through Kat's room and produces a hand full of concert tickets in a drawer.

Anyways...I was hit with reality that I'm seeing 4 concerts within the next three weeks and that makes me sooooo happy I can't even tell you. Here's a list, in case you care:
~Matchbox Twenty: Tweeter Center, Tinley Park. Tomorrow night, Aug. 3
~NSYNC: in Louisville (8hr roadtrip). One week, Aug. 9
~NSYNC again??: (this is a major question mark) in Indianapolis (4hr roadtrip). Two weeks, Aug. 16
~Dexter Freebish: House of Blues, Chicago. 2 weeks, 6 days, Aug. 22
~Barenaked Ladies: Tweeter Center, Tinley Park. 3 weeks, one day, Aug. 24

I love music. I love concerts. I think I've died and gone to heaven.


And this makes me very happy too. Record Sales from the past week. The sold 9.3 times the next closest. I think it's funny.
This week's Top Ten: 'N Sync's Celebrity (1,879,955 copies sold); Alicia Keys' Songs in A Minor (202,840); D12's Devil's Night (122,874); Staind's Break the Cycle (122,480); Aaliyah's Aaliyah (99,344); Destiny's Child's Survivor (91,025); P. Diddy and the Bad Boy Family's The Saga Continues . . . (90,179); Linkin Park's Hybrid Theory (89,061); Jagged Edge's Jagged Little Thrill (80,071); and Violator Volume 2 (78,819).

I love BBMak

Second Proclamation: Besides cereal, I give my undying love and devotion to BBMak, the coolest British band of hotties that can actually write, sing and perform as well or better than many American bands (and they play instruments). I especially proclaim my love to Mark Barry, for no other reason than that he's a major hottie. I love these guys so much!!

Recommended downloads of BBMak:
*More than Words (Extreme cover)
*Sooner of Later (title of CD, but never made it on)
*Miss You More (just plain awesome)
*I Can Tell (on their Sooner or Later album)
*Unpredictable (on album)
*I'm Not In Love (so sweet, on album)
*September (totally awesome! download now, not on album)

I think I've lost it...

Scratch that, I'm fairly certain I've lost it. Here's the conversation I just had with my sister (well, mostly with my fingers):
Me: did you see my most recent entry?
Me: i declared my undying love for bbmak
Cici: undying love of Mark... and BBMak, yes
Me: hee hee, who doesn't love mark?
Cici: I'm sure there's an ex-girlfriend out there somewhere
Me: bah, i'm sure they are even on good terms...it's mark
Cici: In a couple years he is going to be filthy rich and she'll change her mind
Me: they are the best, i heart bbmak
Me: ahh! i swore to myself i would never use the phrase "i heart"...it just annoys me
Cici: i like it... it's fun
Me: ah, i need soap for my fingers, how could you type that? vileties!!
Me: stupid fingers
Me: i apologize for yelling at my fingers, i think i need help

Yes, I was yelling at my fingers. Why? I don't know...but I still love Mark Barry and BBMak.

Wow

This is my 14th entry in 2 days. And I was impressed when I'd write three times in one day. Ah, yes, reminiscing to the beginning of my Live Journal days back in June. How time flies. *sniff*

Anywho, I have no real reason to write, except 14 entries is damn amazing. Makes me happy actually. I've also started to write less in each entry. I think some people might be happy about that. Yes, I tend to ramble...a lot.

AIM is stupid. It just kicked me off...again. Oh well, I was going to sign off soon anyway. I'm going shopping tonight at Best Buy. *cheers* I love Best Buy because it lets me buy lots of dvds and even more cds. Yummy. I knew there was a reason I bought that 208-disc CD binder. I'm going to need it. CDs I want to get:
*Five For Fighting
*Dexter Freebish
*Blue Sky Roadster (but it's only available from amazon.com)
*Toad Wet Sprocket
*Evan and Jaron
*Melissa Etheridge
*Samantha Mumba
*Jo Dee Messina
*Stand? *Weezer?

I will be buying at least 6. DVDs, I'll just browse, and pick up a couple. A couple, or maybe a few. A few, or several. Probably several. Because I was unable to get to the bank today (Zoe fell asleep and we didn't want to wake her up), Chris will be floating me a loan, which I will absolutely pay by Saturday, or she has permission to not let me go to NSYNC next week. Harsh, I know, but I will pay her back.

Hmmm, nothing else to write. I have an hour before I have to get Zoe up and ready and myself ready to meet Chris at Best Buy. So much merchandise, so much trouble....

If I don't get a chance to update tonight or tomorrow before three, you probably won't hear from me until Saturday. *gasp* I don't know if you can live without my quarky little comments, and randomness that somehow became entertaining. Anyway, I'll will be around, talk to you all soon!
