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.

Seriously. If we weren't actually already married, I would send him back in the mails and get my money back. Planning a wedding is a PAIN IN THE ASS. It would help if the people who are supposed to sell me shit would call me back, or if David's Bridal hadn't fucked up my invitations, hence making my mother hysterical (WHICH I DIDN'T NEED) and making sure half the people we know think we're cancelling it. On top of that, I live in South Dakota. The wedding is in Wyoming. People are like, "So, hey, can you come in today?" And I'm like, "Uhhhhh no. I'm in Rapid City, dudes." AND I don't have a DJ. Everyone is either booked or not returning my phonecalls. Or, by now, probably BOTH. It took me several MONTHS to get my families' addresses, being as no one seems to remember that I don't have any of them. To be fair, I forgot to ask my dad in person before, but I keep sending e-mails out to the abyss, and the abyss swallows 'em up. I can't do this by myself, and my husband has made a grand total of THREE decisions. Altogether. GAAAAAAHHH. That is IT. I'm either moving to a faraway country and becoming a hermit or becoming a groupie.

There is good news. Nightwish is in 11 days, and plans for that proceed apace. All we need is a hotel, and we're set. Since my mom offered to take us in, if there's ANY chance we can't get one, it's not mega-bad. Just mostly bad, as she lives in a trailer. There's eight of us going, so we'd fit, but it would get tight. But, hey. I would go through so much more to see Nightwish again (and again and again and maybe a zillion more times). So I'm a fangirl. So what? I'm an excited happy fangirl, which is what counts. So I have a nearby opportunity to decide to become a groupie. Sadly, I'd have to leave the dog here, and visit. But it's almost worth it. 

Dude. I'm a NERD. I just went through all 3437 of my songs on iTunes and found coverart and clarified the albums, just so I could find stuff in a hurry. I've been doing it for about six hours a day for three days, and I just now got done (I have some obscure stuff). And now, to add more music! 

Okay, so I'm actually not in that bad of a mood. I'm going home tomorrow, and Caitlyn and Chelsea said they'd help with the addressing, so the only ones I absolutely have to get done by tomorrow are the two going to Australia. Since Dad wrote down all the addresses for me, I can do that. For any of you who were wondering, yes, I'm just now starting. I got them yesterday. I was supposed to two weeks ago. Let's not go any further on that topic, or I shall rant.  Holly and I (and maybe her cousin) are going to Ft Collins to order her dress this weekend, so that's a road trip and definitely lunch out. With help, we ought to get the invites done this weekend. :)

More news!

First of all, we have pet news: I am now the proud mommy of a 1 year old, brown ticked tabby cat we call Neko (I know I know, not very original). At this very moment he and Yume are chasing each other around the house. She's thrilled to have someone to play with who's her own size, and he's just sweet. I wanted an affectionate kitty, and I got one. He meows at me every time I walk into the same room, and sometimes just to say hello. He's laid-back but playful, and he adjusted to our silly Cocker very quickly. 

The other news is even better: Kelsey has one less reason to go kill someone high up... Scott got moved back to the other deployment group in his squadron, meaning he's not eligible to go far far away until January of 2009. That means my wedding can go off on the date we want it to, which is mid-June 2008! Yaaay! See? The towelgolf made this all possible. ^^

I'd have a pic of both of them, but my new webcam hates me, so I'll post one as soon as I can!

Okay, so I'm a slacker. We knew that. But I'm a (mostly) happy slacker right now. I finally finished a sizable story, and I've got four more in the works. Squeeee! It's Final Fantasy VII/VIII fanfiction, so it can never be published in the "real world," but who cares? Two of the stories are by request, and the other two are sequels to the one I just finished. Yaaaay, Kelsey!

So it's been a year since I updated. Erm....I'm married now, and in South Dakota. We have a puppy, nine fish, and two lizards, and we're looking into getting a kitten. We have a three-bedroom house, I don't currently have a job, and, well, I'm homesick. I miss all my crazy peoples back in Wyoming, and I even kinda miss Casper itself. It sounds weird, I know, but I've lived there since I was little, and I don't know anybody here, and it's not exotic enough to make me forget how lonely I am. Everyone's really nice, but I don't make friends easily, and I'm shy of talking to people who have been doing this for a long time.

Also, Scott has to train in November, so for the fourth year running, he won't be here for my birthday. That's right: he's never been able to make it home. It's only 23 years old, nothing big, but it still makes me cranky. Oh, and the real fun part is that he's eligible for deployment in May. We have our wedding ceremony planned for June 18 (for anyone who didn't know about the ceremony, consider this notice, and I'm sorry I didn't mention it sooner), so we had to add a contingency plan: if he does get deployed, the wedding's been moved to Christmas. We'll have only been married a year and a half by then...rrrrrrr...

Oki, happy thoughts! The stories are going good, I likes my house, I have a picture of Hugh Jackman in nothing but a towel and a golf glove...hehe. Oki. All better! I'll try to update more often, but, hey, no promises. ;)
