Current Mood: blahblah
Bet you had thought I forgotten the ol' LJ. Well you're right :P.

I honestly have become far too lazy to keep a diary anymore, now that Facebook and Tumblr have taken over my life. But I have had the need to keep things a bit more....private than I can get from those other sites. Even tho my FB page is friends only (some pics are public) I cannot trust that information I post could get into the wrong hands. Especially since I have co-workers and family on there LOL.

So I will post the juicy stuff you all don't wanna know here haha. There really won't be too much public posts anymore so if you want to add me feel free, but be warned if your LJ looks like a spam account then I WON'T add you back and I may ban you.

I know I'm being harsh but I have had a lot of crap going on and I just want to have a place to rant and cry on this crazy place we call the 'Net.

I'm off to Tumblr to leer at pics of Bradley Cooper and Alex Turner now lol ;).

Wow, it's been a couple months and a lot of shit has gone down since my last post.

I got into a fucking car accident three days after I posted last, insurance said they wouldn't repair it because the car is worth less than the repairs, so they sent me a check for $1994 (less 500 deductible) would have been 2400 something)instead. Yeah we are getting most of our money back but I CANNOT FUCKING DRIVE A CHECK.

I'm so pissed that I haven't been able to replace it either, at least we have the Zipcar to get us by whenever we need a quick ride. I don't feel TOO crippled now. Ha.

I was grateful the insurance also paid for a rental car 2 weeks worth to help me adjust.  Got a black VW Beetle which helped us get to Indy for Days of the Dead con :). 

But there is also super-mega-fun-happyness coming up this week as well :D. Today begins concert week!!!!! Tonight is the Paul McCartney show at Wrigley Field WOOOHOOOO!!!! I will be in the same zipcode as a Beatle hahahahaha :D!

And last but not least (OMGYESYESYESYES) Arctic Monkeys are coming to town for two YES TWO gigs this coming weekend AND I AM ATTENDING BOTH!!!!!! OMG I cannot WAIT, gonna leer at hot boys wit h British accents  see my favorite band in the whole wide world two times in less than 24 hours!

In a nutshell, even tho life is sometimes crap, I am still stoked for good things to happen. :)

P.S. The new AM album "Suck It And See" is amazing!

I got a lot of shit to write about. I highly doubt anyone reads this anymore which is kind of a bummer :( but we is all on Facebook now haha.

Right now I'm too lazy to write a full-on account of the past couple weeks, mostly cos my online time has been limited to overnights as of late and I've been terribly busy with work and trying to get the house in order cos the fuckwits in our condo ASSociation want to have all units inspected and the bloody property manager won't leave us alone *SIGH*.

But this is all you need to know...

I SAW ARCTIC FUCKIN MONKEYS A WEEK AND A HALF AGO LIVE AND I WAS LIKE LESS THAN 15 FT AWAY FROM ALEX TURNER!!!!



Hell Yeah. *leer, drool leer*

P.S. The AM's new album Suck it and See comes out today! I am gonna see if I can buy it at the store hehehehe.

Seeing Arctic Monkeys LIVE on Thursday night for the FIRST TIME!!!!!

I'm so freaking excited and nervous at the same time. Mostly nervous for count_gregula as he is not really a big concertgoer (yeah like I am) and am afraid he will be uncomfortable in the crowd. Me on the other hand do not care about the crowd, it will be like one big happy insane family LOL, cannot wait to sing along to my fave songs. Especially since they are performing old-school Fluorescent Adolescent as their closer and not that lame 2009 tour version :D:D:D.

I'm also a tad nervous about going to Detroit as it is a strange city I've never been to, so we are leaving the day before so we can get our bearings, yay boss for giving me Wed-Sun off :). But all in all I am gonna have a blast cos hey, it's AM!

(now Lollapalooza get your arse in gear and announce those aftershows so I can get my AM tix for Chicago in August!)

Current Mood: awakeawake
And I just opened a tumblr.com account that I will probably forget to use LMAO. The url is http://lacontessaarctica.tumblr.com and I will probably fill that with Horror Host pictures (read: pictures of Greg*ula*) and mah other love Arctic Monkeys lol.

Birfdaypalooza 2011 was a success! With the exception of dealing with an insane psycho woman that came to my door and upset the living fuck out of me, my bday was grand! It started out on Friday the 1st April with a seance at an Irish pub in Willow Springs hosted by Bob of Reaper Madness (don't have the link too lazy to Google lol) and conducted by our good friend and fiend Master Ron Fitzgerald. I think I felt something during the seance because I got strangely upset and felt like I didn't belong up in that supposedly haunted attic. I only felt like that one other time and that was at the Mars Haunted House up in Milwaukee and that was supposed to be really haunted and I had that feeling in the first room we went into. Creepy as hell!


On my actual Birthday we relaxed quite a bit cos it was a Thursday. Spent the day reading the 1001 (haha) Facebook messages (ok not really but it was a lot), then dealt with said crazy person who decided to yell at me over the delivery of a package to the wrong place. Oh wells! We then went to Sweet Tomatoes for my bday dinner which was super delish!

We also did the Triton Troupers Circus the next week which was always great fun.

Well I know this post is well over a month late but my life is oh-so-exciting :p hahaha.

It's the middle of the night and I am in our awesome room at the Marriott in Indianapolis, IN after day one of Horrorhound Weekend.

We got in around 10 am after a hellish drive out which included me having to stop 4056498467 times to either sleep or pee :p. As soon as we got in it was like old times, seeing familiar faces and a few we haven't seen in a while. And some of the peeps haven't arrived yet!

Since Aunt Flo was in town, I wasn't feeling up to dressing as Countess so I just hung out in the Horror Host room with my partially vamped-out Count and basically had a blast watching the other hosts filming and having fun. We will do ours tomorrow, don't worry! I just have to charge the camn damera lol.

Saw the Vampira tribute documentary from HHW 2010 and we are in it! Just a couple seconds of snippets but we are in it all the same, even got credits at the end :D.

Well I am fookin exhausted and will be hopping into bed with the Count in a few so g'nite all and I will try to upload some pix tomorrow....
