well today has been awesome, as expected!
I arrived at the detroit airport around 2:15ish and a few minutes later was attacked from behind by jessika. I turn around and justin is tapin us as jessika is giving me 23987 hugs. It was a cute moment. I waited like 2798 years for my bag, like always, and I was quietish, as always.
We left the airport and went to Rob and Heath's house, like we usually do when I fly in! We made little plans to meet Rob and Heath at The Little Cafe, but when we got there, J got a call on his cell from Heath sayin that they wanted to meet at Olgas instead! So, back on the road we went!
Olgas was nice.. everyone poked fun since I spilt my coke all over last time. I didn't do it this time, though! I was still kinda quietish at this point.
After olgas we started our journey to St. Andrews. I started to become more and more excited.. we passed Steve's Place and I got pretty dang excited. We went into the venue to see if we could get our tickets.. No one was even there yet but the bands so we just strolled in there like it was okay. We were kinda scared that we were gunna get thrown out so Jess had a quick chat with Kevin and then we were on our way back to the car until doors opened. In the car we just talked about all kinds of things. Jessika got a great idea to get Thin Wheats and Red Bull so that we could get hyper for the show.. So, we walked like 2739487 miles till we found a store that sold Thin Wheats. We walked back and kept standing on the poop steam from the sewers to get warm. When we got in the car we all downed the 6 energy/diet supplement pills and chugged the red bull. It didn't seem to be taking any affect, but i realized, when we were jamming out to Lost Prophets and screaming at the top of our lungs inside this lil honda, that it was starting to kick in. We decided to head on into the venue and we got our tickets and stuff. Not before I got in trouble for trying to run to the bathroom before I got a ticket. The lady grabbed me and threw me back. I was pissed/scared. Oh yea I forgot to mention that I threw a snowball at Justin in the line in front of the venue and it got all over his neck and candy necklace. I kind of wish I never threw that dang snowball because it caused this big ordeal. What happened was since I got the necklace wet, all the dye on the candy beads got all over J's neck. Jessika was tryin to clean it and she was tryin to get the necklace off, when she broke it. J did not appreciate this one bit and him and Jess got in a lil tiff. Oh and this was the second time we got in trouble because the security guard lady made us pick up all the beads. So anyway there I was mediating back and forth between Jess and Just and tryin to get them to be happy. I gave J my candy necklace to compensate for his broken one, but he just ended up breaking it and throwing it into the trash :(. Eventually things settled down though and we all started to have fun! We were just ruinning around, sagging our pants, huggin' eachother, being weird.. you know, things we do best! Anyway... on to trouble #3 when we were sitting on this WOODEN ledge thing and they told us to get off.. really meanly too.. as if we were going to break the stupid thing. The first band came out and we just sat around downstairs. Then Arizing came on and we all went upstairs and just kinda chilled out on the floor. So much for energy pills cuz I was like.. trying not to fall asleep. Anyway then we got in trouble AGAIN because we had our knees up on these hand rail things.. ooh big deal. So we split that scene so that we could go down to the floor for F81. I found a CD on the floor and I picked it up to add to my demo collection and this lady tapped me on the head and told me to give it to her.. so i did since i'm a wus and i was really scared of her. F81 started and it was really fun. We were standing just outside of the moshpit area and it was fun watching the peeps push and shove. I wanted to get in it but the last time I got pulled into one of those I got a lovely blow to the back of my head and almost blacked out so i was a lil aprehensive to that shiet. Instead I just pushed this one girl into it.. or tried anyway, and she looked back at me really pissed, and I felt bad because I thought she wanted in it since she was standing right at the edge and jumping up and down. She smiled though and I guess everything was good. Then this really funny old guy pops up and starts waving his hands around when there was no music and he tells us that he is someone's uncle in the band. He ended up being escorted out by security later on in the evening. The concert wrapped up and we made our way outside and pushed through all the people who had been kicked out. The security people were assholes. If you like, ran into them they'd kick you out.
So it was not till I got into the car did I realize that I felt a little odd. I thought it was just after-concert jitters or something but it was different. I was just going nuts inside.. I thought I was talking outloud but half the time I was just having a conversation with myself in my head. Jessika and J felt weird too. Our heads were going nuts and being all tingly, it was so weird. I guess taking 300mg of caffine plus Red Bull kinda screws you up.
So we got home and we started watching Requiem for a Dream. Good movie.. I was getting a little too into it i think.. I was all like, "NO!" and stuff. I was just flipping out inside from all the caffine. Anyway, so J had to go home eventually and Jess was sad, but that is okay cuz we are all going to the imax tonight. After the movie ended we went into the living room thing and had a nice long chat with puff. My mouth was like sandpaper inside and everytime I moved the whole ground would spin. It was scary. We decided to "go to bed" but we just came back in here and chilled out on the computer, convinced that there was no way we were getting to sleep with that much caffine in our systems.. I couldn't even shut my eyes guys. Justin and Jess had the same prob. Eventually we just decided to lay down in the dark and see where that would take us.. Cute.. puff pulls me out of the room to show me "the bargin of the century".. Anyway.. So we just chatted about all kinds of things. Jessika was finally able to shut her eyes.. and she said they were hard to open so I just let her fall asleep. I, on the otherhand, was still wide awake and I kept staring at the same spot for about an hour. I timed my heartbeat and it was 96 beats per minute. Crazy huh? I'm suprised I didn't have a heart attack. I could feel my whole body beating. It was the weirdest sensation. Eventually I slipped into a light sleep, yet I kept waking up every 30 minutes from these horrible dreams that were so realistic. I had to convince myself that it wasn't real. Finally I just got out of bed and I stumbled into the bathroom. When i got in the bathroom everything went black and i kinda leaned against the wall for support till everything came back. I washed my face and peed again to get the caffine out of my system. I stumbled back to bed and I woke jess up because I didn't want puff to be late for work. We stayed up for a lil while longer online.. talkin to bernoid and stuff.. checkin LJs. Jess went back to bed.. but I can't sleep. I think I've gotten all the sleep I'm going to get for tonight :\. That's the last time I take Thin Wheats.. or at least all 6 at the same time with Red Bull.
now I'm just sittin.. tryin to figure out what i'm gunna do for the rest of the night/mornin till jess wakes up. Cute she just snored really loud.
Maybe I'll crawl back into bed.. maybe i can fall asleep if i try really hard again...
