oh. my. god. [28 Jul 2005|04:18pm]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

oh my god. yesterday, was the best day of my life. it was, of course, the Franz Ferdinand "nokia: unwired" gig @ the hard rock live in orlando!

man, i can't even think of a word to describe how frigging AMAZING it was.

now i've heard/watched their gigs before, and this one literally blew them all out of the water. they were just so fantastic!!!! Alex's voice never faltered once, and his expressions and dancing just made the whole freaking place go insane, likewise with Nick, playing awesomely well and singing "tell her tonight"  beautifully, Bob, stone-faced as always played his bass with wondrous precision, and Paul, of course, drummed so well that it made me wonder how his arms didn't fall off.

i was right up front, about one person away (in the center part) from the little runway thingger, where Nick and Alex frequented, and where they all took their final bow. (it was so worth getting there an hour early for)

they all looked so dapper, Alex in his button-down red, long-sleeved shirt paired with tight *squee* black pants, fringe well on it's way to being as it was before, Nick wore a sort-of checkered short-sleeved button down with black pants, Bob wore a button down black shirt and pants, and all i could see of Paul was his light yellow/creme cardigan.

their set list included (in no particular order except for their first and last songs, which naturally i remember):

Tell Her Tonight
Take Me Out (which Alex described as a "golden oldie" )
The Dark of the Matineé
Auf Achse
This Fffire
Come On Home
Evil and a Heathen
You Could Have It So Much Better
Do You Want To
The Fallen
40 ft.
Darts of Pleasure

I must mention that at the end of course Alex said his trademark "We have been Franz Ferdinand", and introduced his bandmates before Nick introduced Alex. Which was so amusing as Alex described Bob as cherubic, Paul as "the boy with the beats" and took the piss out of Nick, who of course reciprocated saying Alex would break all of our hearts (followed by loud screaming from the crowd...yes, i was one of them, shut up) and that he had "the voice from heaven".


all in all it was an AMAZING show, and I'm still in shock, not able to believe my luck

and before the show even started, while the band was still backstage,  Matineé and Take Me Out were played (album versions of course) and we were made to sing along so they could get good shots of the crowd singing along (and pretending the band was onstage...ahem)

look for me on MTV, kiddies :)
hope i didn't look too hideous...

mucho ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ to Franz Ferdinand, for making my dreams come true and playing all of the songs I'd hoped they would play (The Fallen/Do You Want To/Darts of Pleasure) and amusing the hell out of me.
they all looked so much tinier than i pictured them... :)

omg wow, stuff to talk about in an update! shocking isn't it? well, it's saturday for another 13 minutes. Yesterday, I went to the Yankees game with Kim, and we have no idea who won! It went into extra innings, so we left at the bottom of the 10th cos it was so packed! When we left it was 5-5 and the Phillies were up. So whatever. We went to the Animal Shelter after that. OMG there were loads of Huskies and a German Shepherd and omgz they were so cute!!!!!! I felt SO bad though. They were in those cold, wet, small little cages and crying and stuff. Mannnnnnnnnn...But anyways! I unearthed the music video for Love's A Cliche by The Karelia (aka- Alex's old band before Franzy), and MY GOD ALEX IS TEH SECKS! It is hawwwwwwwwwt liek woah1!11!!!!one! Damn, it's sexy. He's all...oh God, just don't get me started on it. Go ask Alice, she knows. *hehehe pun!* I sent it to Chelsea who is an Alexaholic as well, but no where near as Alex-obsessed as me, though. Sorry, hun. It's an impossible plateau to reach. And no, I still can't spell. So, today. Hm. Watched Anchorman. Wow, is that a stupid-ass movie. Stupid, but so stupid it's funny. You know? Tomorrow's Easter! WAHOO

You wait everyday patiently for my update, DONT YOU? WELL YOU'RE GETTING IT BABY! YOU'RE EFFING GETTING IT! So yes. I am now a...STUDENT AMBASSADOR! HOLY CRAPOLA YES! I was so freaking excited through first and second periods. I was like completely bursting, cos I REALLY wanted to get picked. But then at break, I gave Jessica her letter because Ms Estock asked me to cos she couldn't find her and stuff, and she didn't get in and stuff. So after 3rd period, she was all "I can't believe you made it. I really didn't think you would." Which was so EFFING bitchy of her that I can't believe it. I mean, she had the interview with me on Monday, and she told me she thought I did really good, and I "used all these big words and stuff" so...But yeah, it really made me sad. I like didn't talk to her much for the rest of the day, and was kinda in a bad mood. It kinda ruined my day. And the really sad part is, she like didn't even notice that I like ignored her and stuff. It was kinda sad. I mean, I talked to Chelsea and Raven for like all of lunch. She's obviously not good at dealing with dissapointment. I mean, the other friends that I have that didn't get it still said congratulations and stuff and didn't try to make me feel bad. So, I'm not gonna go see her in the dining room, because my mom is sick anyways, and so i don't feel like going anyway. But I will go to AirBand and was thinking of bringing my Alice and Celeb. Twould be a great event. I mean, Chelsea and Frank are in it like HELLO! Hahahahahaa, well anyways. This is prolly a really stupid sentiment to post on here because Chelsea will prolly read this and think I'm a complete dork and tell the whole world (just kidding, if you tell people you are dead, my love) that in Spanish class we played Scrabble, and our team was me, Chelsea and the other guy who I'm not naming cos you never know...DO DO DO! But yeah, it was fun. *swooooooooon* OKAY, Chelsea, coudln't you figure it out by the way I like friking blushed furiously the whole time? EH? OKAY I'M DONE WITH THAT! Hahahah, My mommy bought me carvel icecream AND an icecream cake as celebration for the Ambassador thing! I felt so special. I LOVE CARVEL! *dances* Wooooooooh! And we brought the chicks home. Oh my fod, are they ADORABLE. </p>

Chickies!Collapse )

Well. We got our spanish test grades back yesterday (if you're a freak and asked after class because she graded them during the class period...) and I didn't do so bad. 97 WOOOOOOOOH! I thought I failed...It's a LOT better than I thought I did. If I got an 80 I'd have been shocked. Not to the extent that I am now. But still, shocked. But that just shows that I am an expert guesser. SO YAY! Today was a bit borrring...Well I went to bed at 12 last night and was EXHAUSTED today. I couldn't keep my eyes like open when we were supposed to be reading a chapter in To Kill a Mockingbird, which is, officially the worst book like ever. Bor-ing. OK over-exaggeration, the Yearling still haunts me 4 years later. Maybe THAT's the worst book ever. But To Kill a Mockingbird is definately close behind it. The whole world like loves that book, and I thought it would be you know, good. But is it? Nope. I think that's enough ranting and time-wasting for one day. I will get the Ellegirl mag, and I WILL get NME somehow. I will manage it. Tis unfair that it's like $125 for a subscription just because it has to be shipped to the U.S. The lucky UK-ers get it for $15. *sob* Why am I obsessed with correct capitalization today? *shakes head*

<333 Smay.Who.Makes.A.Great.Emo.

PS- I heard This Fire on the radio last night, being the reason I stayed up later than necessary...YAY FRANZ!

[ mood | SLIPPERY! ]

*chokes on a hershey's kiss* HACK HACK SPUTTER! *clears throat* Well...Well...Well...This weekend was interesting. Friday night/Saturday morning acoafest where we had to pull loads of strings because SOMEONE has issues with transportation. *points at alice* So, we hung out, and had fun and such and Saturday my grandma took me shopping for clothes for Christmas. (We decided to go after Christmas because it's easier, and it's easier if I pick out clothes and try em on) and then we went to Red Lobster which was gooooooooooooood! The waitress reminded me of Roberta though for some strange reason. I got married Friday too. Yay...Global studies class. We're studying Hinduism, which as I recall saying in a previous post, is like really interesting. It wasn't TOO tragic, except for our teacher trying to make it as embarassing as possible. He played wedding music and said "_____ and her happy, happy husband is...!!!!!" And forced us to clap by threatening referrals on us if we didn't. Lots of people clapped. I got Brady, and we're untouchables. Of course, they were stupid and let ME pick from the cup, and naturally got untouchables for my luck sucks immensely. So, I can only talk to people in my own caste, which consists of Chelsea, Caitlin, Connor, Bobby and Brady. Wooh. I'm not particullarly friends with any of them. I had to bring in a noisemaker, so I used some wind chimes for the heck of it. Mr. Eisen wants us to be completely embarassed by frequently telling us to go sit with our spouses to take notes and when talking about us needing to bring in supplies said we had 30 seconds to sort out who'd bring what and say "Shnookums, I'll bring the poster, No, No, honey! I'll bring the markers! You can use any kind of little nickname you like." And I heard this one girl say to her husband I guess his name was Stephen, so she was all "OK...I'm just gonna call you Stephen...". He told us that we should ask our spouse how their weekend was, so we kinda just yelled across the room. And Mr. Eisen was saying that he wasn't feeling the love and how we were neglecting our spouses (this is all while he's taking attendance and we're all bored) so I got a wave from my spouse. Hahaha, He's actually pretty nice. It kinda scares me that he tried to put people together based on personalities...We don't have too much in common. I know because we had to write a list of 30 things about eachother...But I guess it's because we're both pretty quiet. Whatever. He's nice to me, so I won't harp on it. I shudder to think what people say when he has to tell them who he got. I'd be dissappointed if I got me too. For obvious reasons. But whatever... DAMN MYTHOLOGY! Tonight and tomorrow night are the last nights I have to finish it up. I've got to do the muses. I've only got like 3 out of the 9 people summarized, and I don't have the overall thing done yet either. Damn. I don't wanna do it. I have a retreat tomorrow. Meaning I can wear jeans. Wooooooooh! And don't have to tuck in our shirts! I think I'll bring this new purse thing I got at Old Navy. Tis very cool. So, yeah. Now I have to continue working on my project and start to clean up. Yay. Just yay.

[ mood | Obsessive ]

So...Since nobody comments, and I assume nobody reads this...it's a bit pointless to post. But I will anyways, because I am bored and I feel like it. So hah! Overview on the vacation: Did loads of nothing, managed to go to the mall with Celeb one day, managed to see ASOUE, managed to be disappointed in Alice for not getting fecking MIB's AUTOGRAPH! You're at Bucsh Gardens right now, so you do not careeeee at all! I love doing nothing. But tomorrow. School. Ech. Ech. Ech. Ech. Ech. Ech. I can't say that enough. Ech. I wish we had more vacation time. This time it went way too fast, and now I don't have any breaks to look forward to. Honestly, I wonder how I'll survive! I have Mythology this semester and I don't know a single person who will be in that class. *sigh* It's mostly upperclassmen, according to some freaky girl. But I digress. And I hopefully wont fail this semester because my GPA from last semester was 4.214 which isn't too shabby.In other news...I bought an $8 magazine that's like 3 feet tall because Alex was on the cover, there was an interview with Alex, and a whole *drool* page pic of his face which is the sexiest picture EVER and a really nice band pic! YAY! A bonus little pic with Nick Valensi was in there, (Alice, you still have to guess what he's doing) and an interview with Steve from Hot Hot Heat. OK, so maybe the magazine isn't 3 ft...but it's the length from my chin to my belly button! YES I MEASURED! Ahem...FOURTY FEET REMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIN! I know I'm obsessive. I know. Don't tell me. I know, I know, I know. But it's ok. I shall embrace it! I will have to accept it as a part of my personality. First it was Tom Felton which lasted for 3 years, possibly longer, and now it's Alex which has prolly lasted since hm...I'm gonna say...August. I joined the forum in October...and I put a picture of Alex in my locker like the day school started...so yeah...definately July/August. Oh my sweet Franzy! MWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAH! Bob is appealing to me too. He's so angelic. Just adorable. He's my second favorite. *nods and points to her eh...what's it called avatar?* Tee-hee!

[ mood | tired ]

*yaaaaaaaaaaaaaawn* Wow. I'm tired. I woke up at...eh...I think it was 12 and only because my mom forced me to wake up. I stayed up till 3 in the morning and so I'm *yawn* tired. And I really am yawning as I write this. I actually started writing a story. Un-fanfic story. It's been a while since I last wrote and it felt really good. Like all summer I stayed up till at least 2 writing. This time I tried to write slowly, because I usually write fast, and put meaning into it and think about it. And I actually don't hate what I've come up with. Tis not bad. Ah well, I need to tear myself away from the computer. Byes! *yawn* What is it about writing the word 'yawn' that causes me to yawn?
