On your mark, get set.... OK GO!

So I got to go to a FREE OK Go concert last week and it was so awesome! I'm still in shock and unbelief that I was actually there! you should have seen me, I was freaking out, I don't really know why, except that I was right in front of the stage and it was just crazy to be so close! And it was FREE!! Seriously amazing. They are great live and the opening bands were awesome too. The first was a local band, Scamper and then some British or Scottish boys called the Cinematics. Both were great, but I especially liked the Cinematics, their sound was really balanced for being live. But OK Go rocked! They threw out tambourines and my friend caught one and I got to use it later. It was like actually being in the band... So sweet. At the very end of the show they did the Million Ways dance (check out the previous post...) which was hilarious. I got some ok pictures on my camera phone, but Diana snuck her camera in and got a ton, so I'm hoping to get some from her. I came home with their first CD and a sweatshirt that's a little big, but awesome. And it didn't even phase me that it was pouring when we got out (I was just grateful it wasn't raining too hard while we were waiting in line). Seriously, such a great night!

The Million Ways Dance with the Backyard on the big screen... total reenactment, these guys rock!

Damien rocking it!

If you want to hear how funny these guys are, check out their Podcast, the grandfather one is especially good.

Shameless Steal...

So I'm stealing this idea from my buddy Jared's blog. The idea intrigued me and I found myself thinking all day what I would say if I had to do something like this, so here it is.

You May Tell Twelve People Whatever You Want...
No names. Just say how you feel...

1. You make me laugh so hard, my face hurts! I can't believe you're doing so well and turning into the person we've always seen you as. I miss you, but I'm glad you're doing good, it makes it easier, knowing you're lovin' it.

2. All I can say is wow! I'm seriously so happy it's strange! I always thought I'd be jealous of you when it finally came, but I can honestly say that I'm not. Of course there's a part of me that wants everything you have, but it's the good kind of envy, if there is such a thing. I'm just really happy for you. Oh, and I hope you feel better soon...

3. You both are seriously the best. I've already told you recently how I feel, but I'm still just so thankful that you can love me despite my mistakes and weaknesses. I know that's what you're there for, but it still is just amazing. Thanks for everything. I really don't say that enough.

4. You confuse me. I really don't know what else to call it, but I think we're like "quasi-friends". I find it strange we can't even have a simple "hey, how's it going?" conversation without me leaving, feeling like I've freaked you out or something. Really, I just want to be friends, so it'd be nice if you stoped acting all akward around me. I mean, don't get me wrong, you're a great guy, that's why I want to be friends, but I promise, there's nothing else there!

5. You just make me angry. You make me feel like the smallest, stupidest person on the planet and really I don't like it. I can't even stand being in the same room as you anymore. Your arrogance exudes this aura that's repulsive yet somehow alluring at the same time, I'm sure you've had a lot of practice fine tuning it. Unfortunately for me, I keep getting sucked into it, like a moth to a flame, and as these things go, I keep getting burned. Well, I've learnd my lesson and trust me I'm not going to let it happen anymore. So please stay away.

6. I know we weren't always best-est buds when I was there, but we did have a lot of fun times. I miss our chats and I'm sorry I haven't been the best about keeping in touch. I'll try to be better.

7. Congratulations. That's really all I have to say right now, no, make that ever. I find it strange you would text me this information, when we haven't had any contact in the last 6 months, oh wait, except for that one time I tried to open the lines of friendly communication and you ignored me. Which is why I find this contact so strange. Ok, so I guess you just wanted to let me know "officially". Thanks. Have a nice life!

8. Why oh why do I have to miss so many stinking people? And why oh why, haven't you come to visit me yet? Don't worry I know the answer to that one, but again, I'm being a lame friend and not doing too good a job at keeping in touch. I'll really try to be better, really I will. I think you're great and I just want you to know that.

9. Well, I don't really miss you. I mean sometimes, this little tiny part of myself does, but it's usually just because I'm feeling sorry for myself and thinking back on all the "what if's". You're a big "what if" and I don't really like that. I think you know things never got closed, but that doesn't seem to bother you, so I'm still here, trying to recover. Just thought you should know.

10. You're cute. I find you fascinating and would love to get to know you more, but I'm finding it a little difficult. If you could help me out, just a bit, that would be great. Thanks! (wow, how many people could that one apply to, huh? story of my life, so I'll just leave it there.)

11. I'm so happy for you it's crazy! Seriously, when I think about it, I just get this little grin on my face that doesn't seem to go away! So once again, no jealousy for your good fortune, just great vibes!

12. Let me just appologize for being so lame sometimes. I promise I'm not doing it on purpose, but thanks for putting up with it. You've been there for me and I appreciate that. Just know I'll be there for you when you need to be lame too.

Wow, I thought twelve would be hard, but surprisingly I could keep going... but don't worry, I won't.

Halloween Fun!

As promised, here are some pictures from all the Halloween craziness going on in Boston in the last few days. I don't have many pictures from the Institute Dance last Friday night because I was busy running around, since I was partially in charge, but it was a success I think I can say. I was in charge of the decorations, so I was busy from 5-8 setting up. It was a crazy night. But I had a lot of fun! I won the "Best Female Costume" contest, which was really cool, I've never won a costume contest before. I put a lot more effort into my costume this year, so maybe that's why. Anyway, then on Tuesday night my roommates and I threw a party at our house, which was such a blast! Tons of people came, as you can see from the pictures which was just awesome. We had Dance Dance Revolution going on in one room and tons of food in the others. It was fun to see everyone's costumes, so here they are, check 'em out!

From the dance:

Lora, Liz and I at the dance. Lora was a cute spider (thanks to my old roomie Sue for that idea...), Liz was a MasterCard Comercial and I was Cleopatra (this is the costume that won the prize, it was fun to be this dressed up for the night, but it got hot).
Mike and Kristy. Mike dressed up as Micahel from the Office, which I thought was hillarious!!

From the party:
For our party I dressed in part of my Celopatra costume but turned it into a Grecian Goddess costume, it was a lot less hot. Jared dressed as Lloyd Dobler from "Say Anything" complete with boom box, Diana was Superman and Steven was Aragon!

Riva the pirate, Julie the punk, Tim "Ice Man" and Kylie, who is adorable as Dorothy!

Carime, Tim, Dave, Lee, Diana, Ceasar, Joe and Claine.

Brooke and her husband, Jake, had great ideas to be inventors who "think outside the box"!

With my roomies at the party, the Grecian Goddess, Gypsy and MC Comercial.

Here we have two pirates and a gypsy, Marie, Boyd and Lora!

It's the DDR Champion, William the Angel, with Steven, seriously rocking the PS2!

Well, there you have it folks. I didn't want to overkill the pictures, my last post had enough to last a while! Anyway, thanks to everyone who came for making my Halloween such a blast! And to those of you in Utah, friends and family, know that I'm thinking of you and looking back on all the fun times from last year, I went through my pictures from last year earlier and had a lot of laughs. I miss you guys! Anyway, I'm going to try to be better about posting regularly, so don't go away!
