Quickie update!

Tuesday night - Nellie's, as per usual. This time it was "Everybody's Birthday" (really it was only Leslie's, Marc's, Teresa's, and Drew's, but we all got to wear tiaras). I sang the Gin Blossoms' "'Til I Hear It From You", which was one of the very first songs I remember consciously loving in 6th grade. I also jumped up for "If I Could Turn Back Time" with Les and Drew, and Evan and I finished the night with "Salvation" by The Cranberries (if you are familiar with this song, then you know how hilariously good (?) we sounded). Appearances were also made by Maddie and her cool co-worker Dorothy, Jared, Erica, Nick Mik, Natalie Harden, and the elusive Mike Noens, who showed up for all of 3 minutes and left without saying goodbye to anybody. Hmph. But all was well because I totally won tickets to see Tiffany live in concert (what? YES.) when I correctly answered the trivia question, "What movie did Tiffany do a voiceover for?" (the answer is Judy Jetson in The Jetsons Movie). Also, Nellie's regulars kept coming up to me and telling me what a lucky girl I am to have Will, which made me smile a lot (it was our first time out as an "official" couple, so it was kinda the news of the night) :-)

Speaking of Will, IIIIIIIIII am a very happy girl. I never felt like we really got to know each other all those months I was away at school, and now that I'm home, every moment of facetime we have together is very rewarding. I've definitely gotten him to be more outspoken, that's for sure. :-) Also, there is very little on this earth funnier than the painfully random shit your brain spits out when you're fighting against sleep (see below).

Last night - The freakin' Tiffany concert! Before her set, Jeff Timmons (a washed-up member of 98 Degrees) performed, and let me tell you, it was painful. He sang along with the 98 Degrees CD and kept making these sad little comments like, "Okay I bet y'all wanna see Tiffany now!...but I'm gonna sing one more song!" I mean this was happening over and over, it was just embarrassing for everybody. But Drew kept me entertained by consistently referring to him as Tim Simmons. Tiffany herself was actually pretty awesome. She has definitely gained some post-fame pudge around the midsection, but her vocals were still healthy. She started out with these two **AWESOME** dance songs, I definitely need to find them. And, of course, she ended with, "I Think We're Alone Now", which pretty much made the night. Seriously though, how sad is it to be famous for a one-hit wonder that's actually a COVER? Yeah, it was A Concert of Patheticness, but it was fun all the same.

Tonight - Took my daddy to see Superman Returns. I've gotta say, we were both a bit disappointed. It was just extremely slow paced and it just kinda seemed like...I dunno, like nothing really *happened*. Does anyone else agree? Really, I felt let down. Maybe I was hoping for too much, but it just was not on par with Spider-Man or X-Men. Two stars. But it was really nice being out with just my dad. I honestly don't think we've ever done that least not since I was like 7. And I didn't feel frustrated with him at all, and we actually *TALKED* about things (like why hot girls date ugly guys...Dad's answer: Because ugly guys treat them better, and he cites my mom as an example, awwww :-) ). It was a really great night. I really do love my dad, I'm so glad things aren't strained between us anymore.

And finally, I'm ready for the fun of the 4th!!! Bring on Fireworks and The Taste!!!

Quotant Quotables:

"I can turn into almost a thousand bats. I can fill up a cave with me."
-Will on being a vampire

"Well that's very flattering to us marshmallow makers."
-Yes, I said this in my sleep. WHY?!?!?

"I don't even *know* how to get an Asian laid."
-Good ol' semi-racist Jeffrey on trying to school his roommate in the ways of seduction

Me: All of my roommates loved you.
Evan: Yeah, all of your roommates did love me, except I don't think I was ever formally introduced to Tracy.
Me: His name is Shannon.
