Today I officially filed for Child support. It was emotionally draining. I've been crying all day because of all the stuff I went through. Plus, Cella has an infection in her kidneys or bladder. MOre tests may be needed. Now she's throwing up. Which means no school for either of us tomorrow. Suck.
I had a math test. I've been failing the homework b/c I missed last Tuesday b/c of the Keane gig, but I'm fairly sure I aced the test! I studied for 5 days!
I just got a message from my bud, John from the UK. He came to Atlanta to see the gig last week.... Anyhow, he is sending me all sorts of good stuff including TIM's SWEATY TOWEL HE THREW AT HIM! *meep*
I'm gonna die, that's the best news ever!
Last week I was a woman on a mission. My duty: To bring along a Piggy Bank to pass along to Keane. The problem. Finding one that wasn't glass or more than a couple bucks.
At the thrid store, Stephen and I found one. It was smallish, pink, plastic, and two bucks. Sweet.
Why did I need a piggy bank? B/c it's an inside boardie joke, okay? Geesh. Nosy.
ANyhow, I had a card for them, and had alot of fans sign it at the gig, Tim's bday card from back in June, I wore a birthday hat celebrating Rich's bday (everyone else chickened out), the bank, and a halloween bucket full of Almond joys and Mounds (another joke that you'd get if you loved..obsessed...no, loved Keane such as I do. Of course I threw in some apples, for health. Next, was a set of pink foam curlers for Tom's hair. People had been commenting about how it looked like the stylists had flat ironed it, so I came with the "Quintessential Jeannette Gag Gift" lol. I forgot to ask them about teh Woolite, though.
Anyhow, we arrived in Atlanta after a 4 hour drive, and Brandy, April, Stephen and I paid $20 to park in the venue's parking lot. Stupid... I'm payng all sorts of money for the ticket, darnit! Anyway, we got there and ran into Trudy and what's her name form the Myrtle Bach gig. We all recognised each other right away and were very happy to see each other. They live in California and just travel and follow the band places, BTW. About 80 miles into the trip I realised I forgot my camera, but that was okay. April had one, and they never allow cameras in the venue so whatever.
We started walking to Hard Rock, when Lee called me on my cell. Lee is very adorable and extremely sweet. All the girls on the board are in love with him. I just want to hug the kid over and over. So, they parked (he and his bud, Mike.. Matt came last time, remember?)and walked up to meet us. Lee suprised the hell outta me when I saw him in a pinkish purplish shirt, and he gave me a hug. He's so cute, ya'll! Anyhow.
We have no idea where we are going,a s I am horrible with directions, yet I was leader. Poor poor people. Finally I asked some guy on the street,a nd he told me how to get there. It was basically the long way round, but I was happy! I bugged Lee forever and we both were so excited to be there. I, of course, was bouncing off the walls, and he was reserved (stupid boys), and I'm sure my friends were quite embarrassed. I think Lee warned Mike about me beforehand though, b/c he didn't seem so scared! LOL!
So, FINALLY, my posse and I were joined by Julie, Mary and her man, David, Monica, Emily, Andrea, and rounding out the group was Jill and John. John came all the way from ENGLAND!!! WOW!!!!!
I think I scared everyone by hugging everyone on sight. I couldn't help it! The whole place was just full of love and friends. Beautiful.
So we ate, and paid the bill (which the waitress was shorted $14.00 or something, and I had given her an extra TEN... WTF???? John and Stephen I think paid for the difference... such nice people). We walked over to the venue where there was already a substantial line in front of the ticket office. We had our confirmation numbers to get our early entry wristbands and tix, and Janel was 1st in line! I was so happy to see her! I had my Keane Posse buttons on that she made us, and I was good to go!
We were escorted to a door, and finally let in, but we were told to wait b/c The Long Winters were still soundchecking. Oh yeah, I was pimping TLW the whole time in the resturaunt.. I made Lee and Mike listen to them on my iPOd, LOL! Anyway. Lee had to potty, but then we were let in right as he went to the bathroom, so I yelled "LEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!" at the top of my lungs,a nd that kid bolted up the stairs! My buds and I ran the whole way to the front, and I stood next to a woman who looked very nice and cordial. I watched her jacket for her while she got some water, and Lee went potty.. when he came back I yelled at him for getting in this woman's spot! LOL! He moved over a bit and when she got back I told her how I saved it from evil Lee! LOL!After a few minutes, she asked me, "Are you Jeannette?" *blink blink*
"Why, yes I am."
HOW did this woman know who I was?
To be continued, b/c DCFC will be on Conan in a few moments!
Plus, I'm fucking tired.
