Hey y'all! lol.
I've been wanting to say that all weekend, which, by the way, was amazing.
My flights were totally uneventful but as usual, security and customs were a bitch. Gotta love when you're that random person who gets everything but a cavity search and that was me, both at security AND at customs. What fun!
Customs also loved the fact that I didn't actually know where I was going, aside from Dallas. Improve points go to both Ash and I for the wonderful stories that we made about out long lost UofT bother. lol. Probably not a good idea to lie to customs, but it got us here, didn't it?
Chad actually did meet me at the airport like he said he would, which was cool, he was just in the wrong terminal, but thanks to some stealthy breaking into my appartment by Quincy and Lily his phone number was found and he was soon located!
The show on Friday night was awesome! Even though Stacy was sick, the atmosphere and the energy that the crowd gave them was just phenomenal. Pilotdrift was incredible live and The Color, once you get over their sounding a lot like The Cure, were pretty good too.
Before the show we went to this super cute cafe, Cafe Brazil, where the waitress totally ignored Kim and I, but whatever. I met a few of the boardies, saw the band and talked to Boyd, who was totally floored to see a Canadian at another of their shows. I wasn't even the one to see Chauntelle, she saw me and asked if I was at the Toronto show. I could have just died that she remembered who I was, and that later, she remembered Ash too. Everything about that night was amazing.
We went back to the coffee shop after the show and met some more super cool people and Ashleigh and I decided that Texans, namely Eisley and Eisley forum members, are indeed the nicest people on the planet.
Boyd can't wait to see us in Montreal when they tour with NFG, and I promised him a load of fans so all you Montreal people better help me out on that one!
Saturday was like the laziest day ever! We all got up at like 8, but we didn't leave for McDonalds til after 10:30.
I had a parfait for breakfast, man have I missed those things. We wandered back here the long way and saw some cool buildings and stuff. I'll post pictures once Ashleigh shows me how. We layed around and watched some really strange spyish movie til Chad had to take Kim to the airport at which point I fell back asleep and slept til he came back. I drifted in and out throughout Drop Dead Gorgous and sometime after that we decided to go to Good Records, coolest record store ever where we heard Pilotdrift again. They weren't as good, but I think a little record store with little to no accousics or lighting contributed to that effect. After we went for pizza, and CHOCOLATE fortune cookies. Yeah, chocolate. They were weird, but good. Then we came back here, threw on Napolian Dynamite and everyone except Steve and I totally zoned out. Oh yeah, Steve came over before we went to the record store. It was awesome seeing him again. Man I've missed him.
Yesterday we went out to the Fort Worth Stock Yards, which is about as Texas as you can get. We saw a mechanical bull, a couple of long horned steers, um...lots of bikers, which I think just served to replace the cowboys that should have been there. It was pretty cool. Last night we watched Garden State and I made the guys vegitarian stirfry and rice. I think it's the first time that they've eatten vegitarian in their lives, but they ate it, and went back for seconds, so maybe they thought it was good.
Chad crashed pretty early, before the movie was over even, so I headed into Ginger's room for the night, where, I unfortunately didn't sleep at all, but whatever. Wandering around the internet can be entertaining. lol. Or not, but you know.
I need Ashleigh to show me how to post pictures because I've actually got a few good ones, which is amazing for me. We all know that my pictures usually suck, but they should appear later today. *crosses fingers*
Love ya all! Hope your breaks are or were cool and relaxing, see you soon!
