I don't know why, but this made me laugh so hard. I had this long and semi-emo post written up about various long and semi-emo things, but I'd so much rather laugh about cat macros.
I spent the first ten days of May in Philadelphia with likeaspark
and we had a lot of fun. I took a lot of pictures and a handful of videos, so once I finish uploading those to photobucket, I'll try and be proactive about posting some. But in an nutshell, things that are cool: Atlantic City, Paramore + Jimmy Eat World, ghettogreta
and the Mountain House of Doom (tm), My Chemical Romance, the Mutter Museum, the Franklin Institute, downtown Philadelphia and fountains and old buildings and the LOVE sign, the Betsy Ross House, Elfreth's Alley, the Liberty Bell, the Christ Church burial ground, the Reading Terminal Market (pronounced redding! I don't know either), THE MELTING POT OMG, ghost tours with a cute dorktastic tour guide, my magical $1 poncho, The Hush Sound, the lead singer of Motion City Soundtrack, and Panic At The Disco. Things that are less cool include multitudes of school children in small houses without any air and torrential
downpours. I continue to be amazed by cities with crazy convenient public transportation set-ups, because Salt Lake City is not one of them.
I picked up my glasses on Tuesday and so far so good. I think I'm still adjusting to them because I can't wear them all day without getting a headache/sore eyes yet, but I do notice that wearing them does help when I'm reading or looking at a screen, so that's good! Also, they are so dorky and I kind of love them.
So the initial tour dates for The Hush Sound + The Cab tour that were posted over at thecabofficial
weren't quite correct and there is actually NOT going to be a Salt Lake City date. Woe! I was so, so stoked and then I was really bummed out to find that the day they were supposedly going to be here they're actually going to be in Colorado Springs! Boo. But as luck would have it, I was planning on heading out to Philly again in mid-August so that likeaspark
and I could go up to visit with ghettogreta
for the weekend for a birthday party, and the Philly tour date of the Dance Across The Country tour is the following Friday! Yay! So I'm just going to stay out there for another ten day excursion.
In the meantime, I have the Honda Civic Tour, the Glow In The Dark Tour, and Warped Tour all with my Utah girls in June, which will be so fantastically awesome. I'll also be heading to Vegas for the second to last HCT show on June 13th. I cannot wait to gamble and hang out with fangirls and also gamble ;-) I'm strictly a slots girl, but maybe one day I'll be gutsy enough to try the tables! Haha. Speaking of concerts, I just bought my mom and I tickets to the American Idol tour in July, mostly so we can fangirl David Cook and scream, "It's all for you, David Archuleta!"
It was slightly surreal watching his visit home because it's like, oh, hey, I recognize every single place he's visiting! It was kind of ridiculous how many people were swarming him at the Gateway Mall, clearly we Utahns are crazy! I loved his, "Where do they park?" comment because FOR REAL, DAVID, DOWNTOWN PARKING SUCKS. Also, I'm almost 100% certain that David Archuleta and I have the same laptop purchased from the same Utah-specific chain and that amuses me so much!
So, uh, in conclusion, Bob Bryar?
