a kick in the teeth is good for some; a kiss with a fist is better than none.

i want to update and i find myself aimlessly clicking around the internet, looking for something interesting to post. i've come up with exactly nothing, tho, so i suppose you'll have to settle for just me.

bullet points, maybe?

  • the most important thing i have to say is that it looks like i'll be moving to new york fucking city in july! \o/ scott got an offer from a firm in the city and he's probably going to take it. he has another interview on monday with a different firm in long island, but unless they offer him way more money, he's planning on taking the job he's been offered. i am all sorts of stoked about this, both because i get to get out of albany and because new york cityyyyy! we're planning on going down and doing some apartment-hunting the weekend after next, which i'm sure will be horrible. maybe not, tho - we did a bit of looking around online and found a few places that looked promising, and while they were obviously more expensive than our place here, they weren't, like, life-ruiningly pricey. recession ftw, i suppose.

  • next weekend i get a faceful of dfc and the boyz as well as an opportunity to hold [livejournal.com profile] ninasfeet and [livejournal.com profile] brookie0cookie! and...who the hell else is coming? idk. but yes. northampton on saturday, new haven on sunday and then down to the city on monday for the taping of jimmy fallon. i'm gonna get NO fucking sleep; i can't wait.

  • very restless lately. real life is just so bland between random incidents of tour and other shenanigans.

  • for no real reason, i have set up two dreamwidth accounts. idk. i am souvenir and also semisweet over there, in case i add you and you're like wtf. i'm not sure what, if anything, i'm going to use them for, but there you go.

  • my icon makes me giggle.

  • relatedly: david cook, as per usual, is my favorite person ever.


  • lastly, still fangirling the hell out of miss florence here.

    i'm bored so i put together my ideal dfc setlist. i limited myself to songs that have been performed on this tour and to the length his set usually is.

    i got 99 problems but a bitch ain't one. )

    grrr, twitter is down AND i just missed out on an ebay auction by like ONE MINUTE. i totally would've paid more than the winning bid, too. i just didn't quite make it home in time. AND i knocked over a diet coke while trying to get to my computer for said auction.

    FAILBOAT.

    also, almost everyone ever is annoying. (not you guys, obvs.)

    pms? me? psha.

    [eta] ok, twitter is back and i just had a yummy sandwich. today's weather: still slightly perturbed but with a good chance of okayness later in the evening.

    also, i think i'll watch glee again. that is BOUND to improve things.

    she got a way with the boys in the place.

    oh my god, this just made me laugh SO MUCH.
    The "Idol" judge isn't the only one getting some face time with Cobra. Last season's diminutive finalist David Archuleta stopped by backstage at a recent show, though at least one bandmember had no clue who he was. "[Guitarist] Ryland [Blackinton] met David Archuleta at our show three weeks ago," Saporta said. "[He] had no idea who he was. He's like, 'Hey there, little guy. How are ya?' "

    "He looked like a little short-scale Fred Savage," Blackinton confessed. "He looked like a little man."

    Blackinton quickly backtracked off that touchy statement about the 18-year-old. "I heard his fan club, the Arch Angels, are a pretty gnarly pack of middle-age women," Blackinton said with a smile. "So, listen: I didn't mean anything bad by calling him a little guy. It's just you can't tell because I'm sitting down — and they make me sit down for all the videos — I'm 7-3. So when I saw him, I didn't even know. I was like, 'Hey, stand up and meet me when you have a minute.' "

    After Archuleta took off from the show, Blackinton said he sent a nervous text to Saporta: "Is that somebody important? Did I just mess up?"

    The only one to cop to some "American Idol" love was bassist Alex Suarez. "I didn't get to meet [Archuleta]," he said. "I was really bummed out when I found out he was at our show and nobody hit me up on Twitter."

    adam cook, david's older brother, has passed away after battling brain cancer for over 10 years.


    this morning, david ran a 5k in washington, d.c. called race for hope. the event is a fundraiser to aid in the search for a cure for brain tumors. david's team is nearly to $100,000 and i would love to see us hit that today.


    please, if you can: http://bit.ly/DCfightsCancer - just click his name in the team list and choose "make a gift."


    thank you. <3

    dear gravity, you held me down in this starless city.

    so dfc's stepsister has a twitter. and i'm a creeper, so i followed her. which, whatever, she has other fans following her, so i didn't think anything of it.

    HOWEVER. apparently if you follow her, she follows you back. D: so, now she's going to see me talking all the time about how i want to bone her brother! D: D: D: AWKWARD. and idk what to do. i mean, sure, i could kick her off and block her, but...i can't do that to dfc's (step)sister! whatever. she's totally going to end up unfollowing me once she discovers how annoying/spammy/inappropriate i am. :/

    went and spent a couple of days with [livejournal.com profile] themightybee this weekend! she is awesome, as usual, and on saturday we went to an inside the actors' studio sort of shindig with the lovely angela kinsey. she is funny and adorable and charming and it was exciting. she ships dwangela pretty hard. hee. we also (that'd be sarah and i, not angela and i) ate at the melting pot (YUM) and lounged about and watched some freaks & geeks. good times. (we also were together when we learned about bea arthur's death. so fucking sad. she was a hell of a lady. ♥ RIP *clings to betty white forfuckingever*)

    then tonight i saw believers never die 2! it was SO hot and humid in the venue, ugh. but cobras were fucking amazing, as usual, and then metro station was too embarrassing to be real (mostly trace, omg D:, he must be stopped, you guys) and then FALL OUT BOY HAPPENED TO MY FACE. i love them, band of my heart, favorite band ever, etc etc. and they fucking played "hum hallelujah"!!! i was just thinking today on my drive back from rhode island that i was sad that "hum hallelujah" hadn't made the setlist, because it's my favorite fall out boy song. and then tonight pete's all "we haven't played this on this tour, but we want to tonight, it means a lot to us [blah blah whatever]" and the first chords sounded and i lost my shit. <33333 sadly, tho, we didn't get "chicago is so two years ago." :( i would've taken that over "tiffany blews" tbh.

    oh god, and "what a catch," askldfjlf;lsdkfj. predictably, i cried. <33333
