leighblack: (POTC 2 - My Dirt)
I suppose I haven't posted much about what's actually going on with me lately. I'm still sick, although I think I've finally entered the realm of "I feel better." Although I felt much better yesterday than I do today. Sometimes it's hard to judge if it's my cold or my allergies. I am way overmedicating myself because of this. All I really want to do is be able to breathe! And get my voice back! It's been all out of whack for over two weeks now.

Other than that. things are okay I suppose. I'm adjusting much better to being at home than I have after previous rock-star-stalking road trips. "Chad" is not every other word out of my mouth. Although I'm kind of lonely. It's difficult to be out with friends every night and have people telling me how glad they are to see me and how much they're going to miss me and generally feel loved, and then come home and...well, no one really cares. If nothing else, my dog is at least happy that I'm home. This just makes me all that more excited for the Cathouse show in October.

Oh, and on that front, I DO have the money to go. I started vaguely looking at flight prices, and it's definitely within my budget. If you didn't see Riki's post on sludge, tickets for the show go on sale on Sept 1st. However, he's also having some special MySpace presale thing too. I recommend going to his myspace and subscribing to the blog to stay up to date with things if you think you might be going.

I don't think I mentioned it, but I recently got a new boss at work. This is actually good, because I like her a lot, and my old boss just wasn't working out. He really didn't give a shit about what I did and took no initiative to learn. K is much different though, and she's been at least trying to wrap her head around all the things that I do. And she's been trying to find other things to get me involved with so I might actually have some stuff to do. Because right now things are pretty dead. Today, for instance, I finished everything I had to work on about 1 1/2 hours after I got here. And that's with spending some of that time goofing off on the Internet. So, I'm learning a couple new systems and taking on some more things. K seems to think that a promotion will be in the works too, since my job description will now have more things added to it. That's cool. I like working for her.

THIS IS YOUR REMINDER!!! 12 of 12 is on Saturday! Please try to participate!

Okay. So, I don't have time to write a super detailed blog for my LA trip. We're going to go with the short hand version instead. If you'd like me to embellish anything, just ask!

Don't fly Delta! )

Checking in from Burbank again. Last night was nuts! Literally. The crowd at BBJ was wild! I ran into a ton of people I knew, and met a bunch of new ones. Skyla remembered me! *squee* (I even had to do the 'Skyla remembered me' happy dance outside the bar) Killingbird was awesome! They played one of their new songs and Christian was rather astonished that I knew all the words already. Veins of Jenna were a lot of fun, even if I did spend a lot of their set texting [livejournal.com profile] polexxia. =) (And yes Marie, I did get a drink bought for me - that boy and I actually spent most of the night hanging out together) BBJ was insanely fabulous! I'm so glad I was able to go!! I got some really great photos (even if they were being dicks about photos at The Viper Room) and video too. No photos of the Britt peen though, because I don't really think we need more photos of that. It does sneak onto one of my videos though. It was hard to avoid! It was bouncing around right in front of my face. =O

Anyhow, it was a good time. I will, of course, have a big recap once I get home. We'll be off to Venice Beach later today, I do believe.

So, hello! Yes, I'm here in lovely Burbank. I had a nightmare of a time getting here, but now it's all fine. We went to The Abbey last night and got rather plowed. Today it's lunch with [livejournal.com profile] wonderfungus and the Blackboard Jungle/Killingbird show tonight. We still don't have plans for tomorrow! What should we do??
leighblack: (T-Rex - Kick ass!)
I'll be on my way to the airport shortly, so this is probably my last post for a few days. I'll be back home on Monday afternoon. I might be able to check in while in LA, but we'll see. I do read my email (chadsjagerbitch @ yahoo.com) on my phone though and you can always text me from the box on my journal (if you don't have my cell #) if you feel the need to get a hold of me. Or to say hi! =)

Have a great weekend everyone! I know I will!

Because of bad weather in Dallas, I'm an hour late, but I am home. I'm exhausted, so I'm going to check a few things on my f-list, otherwise I'm going to bed. I'll try to catch up on everything tomorrow.

Much mad love and thank yous to [livejournal.com profile] vampirecarly & Bill for letting me crash at their place. And to Carly, and [livejournal.com profile] missvn, and everyone else I got to see or meet this weekend (yes, I suppose that includes my ditcher, Mr. Chandler), THANK YOU SO MUCH! I had one of the best weekends of my life!

leighblack: (Steve - omg!)
Blackboard Jungle was SO FUCKING AMAZING last night!!!! *fangirl squeal* We had a really great time. Much dancing and singing was to be had. I really think this was their best show so far.

Of course, I was a complete moron and forgot to bring the camera battery that I'd bought and my camera died partway through the night. But that's okay. I think Carly's friend has the picture thing covered. I just enjoyed the show, and getting love from the guys afterwards.

And yes, I was just walking through the bar at one point & someone came up to me and said "Aren't you Leigh?" I tell you, it happens everywhere.

The Faster Pussycat set...well...was kind of a disaster. But I still enjoyed it! I do like the new stuff. Except the stupid "ooh-la-la-la's" during "Boots," which are even worse live. I think I may have been the only person there who knew the words to "Hey You" and that may have included Taime. It was kind of cute how Xristian just shook his head at me when he saw me on stage. And I managed to have a completely coherent 4 minute conversation with Mr. Danny Nordahl.

And, for better or worse, my adoration for a certain individual nicknamed Chubsie has totally been renewed. Even if he was a complete drunken slob after the show. I think he paid more attention to me than he did to his girlfriend, which I guess isn't strange. And, apparently, I'm going to see Duran Duran in Kansas City now, because it's close to me. Me: "That's 8 fucking hours away." Him: "Yeah, close." Hmpf.

I'll have true trip updates when I get home, of course. Right now, I'd better go take a shower since I need to be at the airport soon. I'm going to miss all my old & new LA (and Chicago) friends so much!!! Bye!!
leighblack: (Nigel - Bit of Sin)
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.
leighblack: (Steve - Utterly Fabulous)
I have safely & happily made it to California. And the sun is out today! Video Star was absolutely fabulous last night! Not many bands can follow the J. Giles Band with The Cure, but they pulled it off. I'm sure I'll have plenty to babble about once I get home.

Since yesterday's post was whiny, today's post will be about (mostly) positive things.

Reasons for Leigh to be happy:
- It's Friday
- It's a three-day weekend
- The new Katie Maxwell (aka [livejournal.com profile] katiemacalister) book was delivered to me yesterday
- My appetite seems to have finally returned
- Steve Valentine's Just Shoot Me episode is on tonight
- The trailer for the Rent movie should be popping up this weekend
- I'm meeting [livejournal.com profile] seimaisin tomorrow for the first time
- Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] dazeebean, I'm going to see Crash on Sunday
- Even more thanks to [livejournal.com profile] dazeebean, I'm getting a massage after the movie
- I have a whopping huge two-day work week next week
- I'll be in LA in six days
- I get to see [livejournal.com profile] vampirecarly, [livejournal.com profile] missvn and [livejournal.com profile] wonderfungus next week
- I have enough $$ right now to cover my rent, and that's before I get my paycheck next week, so I'll have plenty of moolah to splurge with in la-la land
- I can actually go shopping this weekend for a new skirt to wear on my trip
- I get to see my Chaddy and my Faster Pussycat babies in 8 days
- I also get to dance & sing like it's 1993 to Blackboard Jungle in 8 days

And, perhaps not so happy for me, but maybe entertaining for you:
I've been letting my go rather au natural, except for the highlights [livejournal.com profile] taylorea put in a while ago. While I like the riotous mess of colors that my hair now has, I'm not so fond of the six gray hairs I plucked out the other night. And those were just from the top of my head! Who knows what's trapped inside that mess?!? *pouts*
leighblack: (Wicked - Through and Through)
Thank goodness! And it's also payday, which is even more exciting.

I realized today that I haven't posted an actual real journal entry on what's going on in my life in a while. Truthfully, there's not much to tell. I haven't been going out much since I need to save money for my upcoming trips. So, instead my journal has been filled with exciting tales of screencapping and creating Mah Jongg games, which isn't all that different from what my life is actually like right now.

Oh, and on that note, I did post the caps from Revealed yesterday. Mmmmmmm...pretty...*pets* This one kills me every time.

Exactly seven days from this very moment, I'll be road tripping to Chicago with [livejournal.com profile] duckduck, [livejournal.com profile] auroram and [livejournal.com profile] taylorea. And in eight days and three hours we'll be sitting in the Ford Center happily watching Wicked, along with [livejournal.com profile] cyberwuzzle, [livejournal.com profile] xiolablux, [livejournal.com profile] littleweirdgirl and other people Julee is dragging along. I am WAY too excited about this! I've waited so long!! It makes me bouncy just thinking about it.

Out tentative trip plans, if you care )

Also, in four short weeks, I'll be in L.A. with [livejournal.com profile] vampirecarly and [livejournal.com profile] missvn to see the Blackboard Jungle show. [livejournal.com profile] wonderfungus, we need to figure out when you might be free so we can be sure to meet up while I'm there!

And that's about it. I'm sure there will be some more road tripping organized at a later date, but there's nothing wholly concrete right now. That FP/PBF/Creeps tour needs to get some dates posted!

I'l be dog sitting again for my parents this weekend. My mom is confused as to why I need to tape the first part of the Elvis miniseries at their house, but it's not my fault it's on the same time as CJ. And it's not like I'm missing Sunday's CJ episode!! In fact, I'm sure I'll be unable to look away from the TV even for a moment while it's on. Okay, maybe to rattle off some observations online. =) Since my sleep patterns are all out of whack right now, I'm thinking I can sleep most of the day Sunday, then stay up late (or all night) so I can get the episode capped right away. Because I'm a dork like that.
leighblack: (Hugh - OMG!)
I bought my tickets to LA! I bought my tickets to LA!! YAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY!!!

Well, Burbank. Close enough.

Oh, and this post from [livejournal.com profile] steph_j_block made me giggle like a schoolgirl this morning. It's the rehearsal promo pics for the Wicked tour! I'm so excited!
leighblack: (Hugh - OMG!)
The BBJ show is Sat, June 4th! So, the date for my weekend in LA is now set. V, if you think you're going to go, we should try to coordinate. I'm sure I could get a connecting flight to O'Hare and we could fly out together. Chandler, I don't know what this means for my plans to fly out & see Wicked with you, since it doesn't start until the week after. I think I probably could afford to fly out twice. We need to talk. But YAY!!!! I'm so excited!! I get to see muh Carly, and finally get to see the baby! Oh yeah, and those BBJ boys. And hopefully Killingbird. *wishes*

Is it wrong to call in sick *coughcough* to work on say Monday because your new favorite TV show is having a marathon on A&E and you really, really want to see the first episodes?? And you don't have cable so you can't set it up to tape and have to go over to your parents to do it? And you can't really trust them to tape it for you because they still can't figure out their VCR? And since it's a twelve hour marathon, you'll need to switch tapes once? So you might as well just sit there and watch it, which means calling in sick? Just wondering.

I truly need mental help.
leighblack: (Rio)
Yes, I have successfully made it back from the wilds of Los Angeles. I had THE MOST wonderful time!!! Of course, what would a trip to LA be without drama? There was plenty of that too. But the show was AMAZING! One of my favorite shows ever. BBJ sounded about a million times better than last year. And since I know Killingbird this time, I highly enjoyed their show. I even got a shout out during it! 'Cause I rock and all. And my future husband is still the sweetest guy on the planet. sigh...

One of the reasons my weekend was so wonderful:

Yep, your eyes do not deceive you. That's Ann with me & Carly.

I plan to write up a whole big entry about the weekend tomorrow, complete with photos. I'm just very depressed that I didn't get to see the Tony Awards, because it sounds like Hugh was all sparkly & sexy. *sniff sniff* I won't have time to watch it until Wednesday! How will I last that long?!? At least he won. Good for him. The countdown for my trip to New York can begin now that the LA trip is over. 56 days 'til I see The Boy From Oz!

Right now, I just need sleep since I got about 2 1/2 hours last night. And I couldn't crash on the plane because the couple next to me talked for the...entire...flight. In Chinese, no less. I wanted to smack them!! I need my rest, people! Work with me!!
leighblack: (O Face)
"I was just a fresh young thing
When I waved goodbye to everything
Sure was great, so glad to know you
Lost myself in California"

I doubt that I'll be able to post anything tonight, as I still have to pack for my trip. Most of the stuff I'm bringing is in a big pile next to the suitcase, but not actually in the suitcase. :/ So, I thought I'd come on here and say so long, suckers!! I will soon be in the land of smog and self-imagined rock stars. And I will love every moment of it!

I got my new outfit yesterday, and it's way cute!. I have my shower present for the baby. I have film & Sharpies. So, I think I'm ready. All I need yet is a new pair of sunglasses to replace the ones Casey Chaos broke and I'm all set!

My future husband told me last night that he can't wait to see me. Yay!! *giggly fangurl mode* I know, I know. I'm making it out to be a bigger deal than it is. Let me have my moment, all right??? Hopefully we'll be able to hang at the 'Bow with them before the show, if [livejournal.com profile] vampirecarly feels up to it.

And since I forgot to do this yesterday:
5 Songs Spinning in My Head
#5) We Came, We Saw, We Drank - Motochrist
#4) Hitch a Ride - Killingbird
#3) Summertime Rolls - Jane's Addiction
#2) Bi-Coastal - Boy From Oz Cast Recording
#1) California - Blackboard Jungle
leighblack: (Thighs)
My LA trip is booked and paid for!! Yay!!! I am beyond happy! I get to see my Carly and rub her big belly. And drool over August, not to mention see two of my very favorite bands!
leighblack: (MetalHorns)
Okay, so the rental car fell through. Doesn't look like we're going to make it up to San Fran after all. I'm just a smidge disappointed. We've looked for flights, called people with cars (Carly doesn't think hers will make it), all with no luck. So here we are, in Hollywood for another night. At least it's not Minnesota, I guess.
