Okay, real quick: The last month and a half has been crazy busy and I've been too hot and blah to do an actual update. So what anyone who keeps track of me via LiveJournal is getting is a quickie. I may post something larger later.

Nightwish (May 26): Excellent. They played The Siren. I was so excited, I said "yes!" loud enough that I'm pretty sure the whole band heard me. Is oki. I have no dignity as it comes to me being a fangirl. The trip down had moments of Road Trip From HELL, but the part we went through all the trouble to get to was fan-fucking-tastic. Period. Oh and I got splashed a teensy bit when Tuomas tossed his water bottle, and I didn't squeal like a total infatuated fangirl. Go me. Hopefully, we can get the VIP tix next time and meet them in person.... and hopefully I don't fangirl spaz and make an ass out of myself.

Pre-wedding, post-Nightwish was insane and painful and not much fun. We won't go there.

Wedding (June 21): To everyone's surprise, and possibly my own as well, I didn't cry much during the ceremony. Apparently I ran out of tears the day before. Still not going there. Instead, I had to fight back the urge not to giggle madly, which should tell you how stressed I was. Or not. Who knows? Anyway, it was beautiful, everything turned out great, and the only thing I forgot was the cake topper. Oh, well. The cake was beautiful anyway, and very tasty. It was demolished, so apparently the guests agreed. The reception, due to the almost 90-degree weather, was fairly short, but fun anyway. My sister got Scott and me a hotel room once she realized we didn't have actual plans, so we got a 1-night honeymoon (which is all we got the first time, too, but MUCH better than nothing). Oh right. True to my fangirlyness, we had three actual Nightwish songs involved somehow with the wedding, and one that they'd covered as well. They were, by necessity, all instrumental, but I could kiss Tuomas for releasing Dark Passion Play with the second disk being totally instrumental. "Last of the Wilds" was the recessional, so the photographer undoubtedly got a great picture of me grinning, since we hit the end of the pews right when the actual rock part of the song started. No Wedding March for me, thanks.

Okay. That's actually all the interesting things that have happened. It's been baking hot, alternating with hail and rain, which makes me crabby, as I hate hot weather. Yes, I know I was complaining in the winter, too, but that was about the SNOW, not the COLD. I like cold. I'm going to hide in my basement on August 2nd, or risk being deafened by the squeeing Twilight fangirls who come out in force for the fourth book. I'd get it for Cait for her birthday, but I'd guess she's had it reserved since they let her. XD


phew, that felt good.

So...yeah. Most of you know this already, but I drew a picture of Tuomas Holopainen from Nightwish (why yes, the exact one that is my userpic; clever of you to notice), and I posted it on DeviantArt, which is not terribly fangirly, not any more so than drawing it to begin with. And it's a damn good picture, too: There. Now you can go check it out for yourself. The real fangirly part comes after. I MySpace messaged Nightwish with zer linkage, and invited them to go see. Seriously. FANGIRL. I am soooo red..

Anywho, Merry Christmas or other wintery holidayness! We have a tradition that we open a present on Christmas Eve, so I already got to open my new DS game: Zelda Phantom Hourglass! Yay! I got something that was on my list! And, because it makes things more fun, on Saturday night, I got a Nightwish t-shirt from my friend Chelsea, and the next day I got a book about the full history of Punk from Holly! So, I'm all excited now 'cuz I have a crapload of presents. Oh, and I got 30 bucks to spend on Amazon from my dad, which will last...well, until I get home, and not far after. I think I did good shopping, too. Everyone so far has liked their stuff. ^-^

Oh. Right. Christmas cards. We got hit with a ton of snow last week and, since I'm still a n00b driver, it was decided all around that it would be better if I stayed the hell off the road. So.....I didn't get Christmas cards out. I'm so sorry!!! They may end up being New Year's cards instead. The weather is NOT cooperating! ><

To end on a happier note, I'm all wound up, and, though I am a crazy fangirl, at least it's venting itself in positive ways. Oki, peace and love and happy stuffs to everyone and have a fun Christmas, k??
