You know what's frustrating?? The fact that my DSL modem arrived today, but they haven't hooked up my line yet. Instead, it's just sitting there taunting me. They're supposed to have it done tomorrow. *crosses fingers* I'm going to finally be rid of my dial-up!!!!

I'm really looking forward to drinking, eating and Firefly watching at [livejournal.com profile] dazeebean's place on Sat night. Work is killing me this week. And my wrist, which huuuuuuuurts. I guess I'll be slamming shots with my left hand. ;)

[livejournal.com profile] rockerlee, I'm getting a copy of the FP Vegas show from that guy, so don't worry about needing to make a trade with him. I've got you covered. Anyone else who wants it too, just let me know.

My new Madonna icon is hawt.
leighblack: (Me - Vox Vodka)
Honestly, any band that can go from Violent Femmes to Little Bunny Foo-Foo to Since U Been Gone to the Stuck on Band-Aids song and back to VF deserves respect. ;)

That is all.

Yes, I realize that I still haven't finished my journal entries from LA or done the one for my Des Moines weekend. Hush. They'll get done eventually. I wanted to write up this one while I still have a small thread of memory about what happened. I apologize that the only photos I have to go along with this post are crappy cell phone pics. I cleaned them up as best I could.

My trip to Nashville to see Duran Duran and Stimulator, or Leigh's hangover is named Chad Stewart )

Annnnnnd...that's about it! KC trip journal coming soon!!

I'm home!

leighblack: (Chad - Green)
FINALLY!! I don't even want to look at my car right now. I'm really, really happy to be out of it. This weekend was really fun! At least, Ann tells me that I had fun. Some of it is pretty blurry. Again, Chad & Thomas are baaaaaad for my health. I'll get it all written up soon. Honest.

If you're going to see Duran Duran in the next week or so, GO EARLY and cheer for Stimulator!! And those DD guys were pretty good too. I'm excited to do it all again next weekend! But with less alcohol. Much, much less.

Oh, and I know you'll all be shocked, but the Faster dates might not happen. Or maybe they will. Or maybe some of them will. Ann, if you happen to talk to my good friend Charles, see if you can get some info out of him. Or tell him to call me or something. Some of us want to know what's going on.

PS. Ann, I'm pretty sure my phone charger is in your bedroom. Just so you know.

*waves hello* I'm finally home! The word for the weekend: sweaty. Friday's additional word: D-R-U-N-K. Saturday's additional word: suburn.

Oh, and Rachel Bolan is MORE hottttt right now than I've ever seen him. *le sigh*

It was fun! I spent too much money. I'm glad to be home. Julee, I got your shirt. I'll mail it out tomorrow. Or maybe Tuesday.

I'm off too shower & get some of the stink off of me. And my hair is all tangled from driving with the windows open, not to mention fried from the sun, so a nice deep conditioning is also in order.

I heard that Miss Rikki has piccies of muh boys though, so that's where I'm going first!

Except for my now diminishing hangover headache...

and the fact that I got totally D-I-T-C-H-E-D by [livejournal.com profile] wonderfungus...

last night was fabulous!!

We had so much fun. We drank SO much alcohol.

We'll soon be getting ready for round three tonight.

And then tomorrow I come home. Boo.

So, remember, almost two months ago when I took a road trip out to Detroit & Chicago? And promised that I'd post a big journal entry about it? And then never did? Yeaaaaaaah...Well, I wrote the whole entry a while ago. I was just lazy about scanning in the photos to go with it. And then I kinda forgot. But, *tah dah* today I have it for you! Of course, at this point, it's more like a trip down memory lane. =)

Remember when I went on a road trip and crunched my car? )
leighblack: (In person)
Seriously, fuck work. I'm totally fed up right now. Listen, I do NOT sit here twiddling my thumbs waiting for you to email me with something to do. I have plenty of things to get done! I cannot just drop everything because you think you're more important than everyone else. I've actually had people email me today, then run over to my desk before I've even had time to read it, to ask if I've gotten the email & if it's done. WTF?? On a good note though, my boss' boss, who is very nice, emailed me to say thank you for something I completed for him last week and apologized that it took him so long to say it. *preens*

So, how about a recap of my weekend to take up the rest of my day? )
leighblack: (Vox)
I've hit some sort of white trash jackpot, as my weekend has thus far been filled with booze, karaoke, more booze and moonlight bowling. Not to mention the White Castle I am enjoying right now. Excuse me while I go put on my wife-beater.

[livejournal.com profile] wonderfungus, you were missed tonight. You would have LOVED the crazy lady running moonlight bowling!!

I'll post some actual stories later. Or something like that.
leighblack: (Default)
Yes, I have made it home from Chicago safe & sound. I had a fabulous weekend with my girls!! The word for the weekend was D-R-U-N-K. I'll post an actual update tomorrow. Right now I'm planning to collapse into a heap.

The next couple weeks seem to be about loss, as a bunch of people that I really like (and a couple I'm not so fond of) are leaving both of my work places. But I suppose that's how it goes.

Thursday night, I spent with my fam, who I haven't hung out with much. My lil bro will be going back to school soon, which is sad. I haven't seen much of him while he's been home. My parents are actually getting to be a little bit excited that I'm going to NYC. Usually, they just remind me that I really can't afford the trip and bitch at me. So, it's cool that they've been asking about what we're going to do. My aunt & I went out for ice cream at Cold Stone (who knew there was one so close???) and ran into one of my bro's best friends. That was cool.

Friday night was Joanne's last night at our B&N, as she's moving to a different store. We had a somewhat spontaneous night out at Applebee's after work. I had left early as there wasn't much for me to do, but still met them out. It was good. Just not very exciting. I was so damn tired. I crashed out as soon as I got home, only to be woken up by a drunk-dialing [livejournal.com profile] wonderfungus. He was stumbling home drunk and wanted some company on his walk. And someone to ramble to. It's all good.

Saturday night was Joy's going away party. She's moving out to Rice Lake, WI - which is wrong. You should never willfully move to 'Sconi land.

Details behind the cut - warning! It's image intensive! Because what's better than drunk photos?? )

When I got home this morning, I found out that one of my high school classmates that I'd actually want to see had emailed me. We're going to try to get a few people together on Tues night. (I guess I'll be calling in "sick" to work - shhhhhhh) This settles my not-actual dilemma about my reunion. I definitely won't be going, since I'll get see the people I want to.

Oh, and who's up for a Twins game?? Jess & I want to get people together for the Oakland game on Sunday, Aug 8th at 1:10pm. We're planning to park and catch the train into the city. 2-L? Laura? Wendy? Chandler? Kace? You guys interested?

I had decided that I wasn’t going to go to see Killingbird in Aurora, WI after all since I didn’t really have the money. Don’t get me wrong, I really wanted to see them live again and get to hang out and all, but sometimes you gotta look past all that when you’re broke. Then [livejournal.com profile] xiolablux begged me to please go because she needed a weekend away. With the help of some bribery on her part, I agreed to go.

This is pretty long… )

My parents have a cabin on Round Lake in Baxter, MN and my friends & I always spend one weekend there during the summer. This year, I noticed that my favorite Minnesota band, Blackstone Cherri, would be playing in nearby Brainerd on Labor Day weekend. Since that’s also my birthday weekend, we decided to make it cabin weekend too.

A sordid tale of alcohol, dancing, allergies and friends )

This week's road trip was one of the best of my life!! I got to see my girls, meet some rock stars, go to Canada again, drink heavily and spend half my life in the car.

An evening with good friends and some very pink guys )
