forget me nots


I've only been home a few minutes. We went to a movie tonight.. more on that later though. Friday was the concert. There were things about the evening that definitely did not please me but in spite of all that he really does put on a good show. We had arena floor tickets. Usually that means its just the crowd and you are on your own to get a spot as far away or as close as you can manage. The security is usually fairly minimum but not really necessary anyway. There would usually be large men at the front to prevent people from going up too far and to catch crowd surfers and send them on their way. Friday night was not like that at all. There were chairs and assigned seats. we were in row 36 Left- seats 11 and 12. They really really enforced it. They allowed no people on shoulders, no people in the asile.. not even a little. This one guy ahead of us a few rows got yelled at for dancing out in the asile doing the Hillbilly Stomp. It was just so unlike what it usually is. The show, though, was great. He does a fabulous job.

Later we were supposed to go to Shooters since that's where Kid Rock was supposed to go afterward. We did go there but it wasn't a very sucessful trip. The parking lot was packed. There were people all filling the spots and making new ones for themselves on all sides of the building and in the parking lots in the buildings next door. We found a spot behind the building but were told by a police guy as we were going to walk up to the building that they were going to start towing people from back there. We found out from Ryan the next day (since he had gotten in, having connections there and all) that people started fighting right before Kid Rock came and so when he got there he saw all the commotion and just left again. So that sucked (for him and everyone else) but I didn't feel nearly so bad then for being a loser and not being able to get in :)

We went back to my house to pick up my stuff that we needed to come back for. We stopped at Meijer on our way home for a few things and then went home to sleep. There wasn't much time for anything on Saturday. We had a dance to DJ in Houghton Lake for about 600 kids (tip up town teen dance). We had to leave around 4:00. The dance went well and everyone had a good time. On the way home it was so cold!

We talked to Ryan a bit when we got there and then went to sleep. Sunday was a pretty quiet day. We slept in, which was very nice, and made pancakes when we got up. We looked at some things online, watched some Anna Nicole, and took a nap. We also went to see Butterfly Effect. I had definitely hopes for it because it just sounded like an interesting idea. I had my worries about Ashton though. But he did a fine job. I suppose when someone does enough roles that are the same type of character its hard to think of them doing anything different. But he pulled it off nicely and I really liked it a bunch.

poll: new journal style or old style?

here is a picture of the old style:

Poll #239141 which style?

Which journal style appeals to you more?

I like the new one.
I like the old one (pictured in this entry).
I don't want to be helpful to you, I like them both the same!
They both suck!

paper journal vs online journal

I was recently thinking that I miss writing in a paper journal. I quit pretty much in favor of writing in the online one, thinking that I'd write in it more. But that's mostly because I always mislead myslef into believeing that I only have so many words inside of me... that I only can write so much and in so many places. I don't know though. Perhaps it wouldn't be such a bad idea to push myself. I was thinking of taking up a paper journal again in addition to this. I think I need to purchase a new one though since the old somehow got peed on. Cat pee. bleah. I've also given thought to keeping an offline journal in a scrapbook sort of way. Its how I've usually kept one anyway... putting in pictures and small life souvenirs. I don't know yet. I just miss writing and I don't htink I do it nearly enough.

On a similar note, I've been thinking that I'd like to write more letters as well. Too much of my correspondence has been in abbreviated IM terms. That's fine enough but I miss the particular flavor of written correspondence... even the way that emails can be if you put some thought into them and treat them as you would a written letter.
