XJournal seems to be incompatible with OSX Leopard - I can't use it without it crashing. Sigh sigh! I actually have to use the dumb in-browser entry writer :P
Let's Kill All The People On This Shiny New Land And Call It Our Own
Turkey Day! I've never had any particularly strong feelings about Thanksgiving, but it is fun to see family and eat loads of good food. However, I am not home to do that this year! Sigh sigh. Fortunately some of the other American girls on the program here organized a dinner, and even though it was chicken instead of turkey, it was still awesome. I was pleased.
I am thankful for: my daddy (yes he deserves his own mention), my family, my Michelle and my Rob, all you wonderful folks that make my life so much brighter, Colin, my awesome Irish friends, my (almost completely returned) health, my beautiful apartment, the lovely city of Dublin, MCR putting on a kickass live show, and fate conspiring to bring me to the same corner as Gerard Way and Lyn-Z in Dublin.
I decided it was time for a userinfo makeover, or at least a facelift. I made a new userinfo banner featuring the beautiful Gerard
and my obsession of the moment, Famous Last Words. That song is just so uplifting and gorgeous. And it's much better to be obsessed with the line "nothing you can say can stop me going home" than "Lately I've been sprawled on these cathedral steps while spitting out the blood and screaming SOMEONE SAVE US." It's healthier, I think :P Check it out! --> exsequar
I also wrote a new blurb about myself. The tiny little bulletpoint list wasn't very satisfactory!
While I was mucking about with Photoshop I also made a bunch of new icons, like this one! Mostly featuring my newest love, MIKEYWAY. I am completely head over heels for this ridiculous boy, you guys. Actually, for both the ridiculous Ways - I'm all heartclenchy with adoration for their complete love and devotion to each other. It's so, so darling. I can date this fixation back to seeing them all over each other all night in London :D They were absolutely presh. This is my new default - oh oh. During the show, Gerard pointed at Mikey during that line ("you can't keep my brother") AND IT WAS SOCUTE. But yes, anyway, I have completely seen the light that is Mikeyway, both glasses-and-bizarre-non-sequiturs Mikey and no-glasses-and-fucking-gorgeous-but-
still-bizarre Mikey. I just love him endlessly. Rach was telling me today about the interview where Gerard and Frankie are talking about how hard it is to live with Mikey because he brings a heater into the bathroom and sticks knives in the toaster - can anyone link me to that?? I might have seen it before, but oh, I want to see agaaaain. *grabbyhands*
So that picture I used in the userinfo banner is one of an absolutely gorgeous set of photos taken at the Bratislava show. Someone posted the link to them in chemicalromance
. You can find the whole set HERE
(toward the bottom) but I wanted to spam some of my favorites, because OH. Pretty, PRETTY Ways.( If you are here, I'll never have a fear )
So pretty. So so pretty.
I realized I was being incredibly greedy to regret not asking Gerard the questions I wanted to. Because dude, thousands of people wait in line for signings with this guy, most of whom get disappointed, and that's just to walk by him and like, be in his presence. I talked to him for 3 minutes! By myself! He trusted me to give him directions!
Yeah. No regrets. GEEEE <333
Oh oh and one more thing! I finally went and bought a huge MCR poster at HMV. It's goooorgeous. Seeeee?
Nnngh, black leather. Nnnnngh Frankie. Nnnnngh Mikey. Nnnnnngh Gee. Nnngh Bob. Nnnngh Ray. SERIOUSLY THEY'RE ALL SO HOT THERE. I don't comprehend such hotness. Mmph. I actually put this poster over all the other stuff I had on my bulletin board (SPN, Panic!, FOB, SGA, BSG, and family/friend photos) because I can't put posters on the wall and I just needed them there. SO PRETTY. *stares happily*
Wow, this was an incredibly long post almost 100% about MCR. Hahaha, um. Obsessed? Me? Nahhh.
