18 THINGS YOU HAVE TO EXPLAIN TO OUT-OF-TOWNERS ABOUT CHICAGO.

Enjoy the gnarly reads here.

I read this from a friend and I thought it was absolutely hilarious.

One thing, though. I’m not a cubs fan. I think all of the jokes are hilarious. As do the Cubs fans about us Sox fans. There is no win, no point in arguing about it.

Also, #5 isn’t that easy. I will not speak my truth about it. Agree to disagree. Haha.

SWEET HOME, CHICAGO.

Seeing The Foopas tonight with Esteban.

Hoping to see Kman, Jim and Nicole tonight.

I screenshot this via my FB. Yah. First show of the year for me — doing it pretty radically.

I have no life. Fuck it all.

Hey, you, Tumblr folk. If we’ve talked more than one, read my latest blog below the dog photo I reblogged.

I’d kill to go back to this. The one thing I’d change would be it not raining Sunday, the last day.

It was brutally cold during AFI and I had to sing my lungs out for warmth. It was thrilling to be able to see them again and hear old and new songs….and a Cure cover.

Blink - 182, to be in the spot I made my way through the pit for woulda been amazing  but I’m not angry with where I ended up. Every time they come through my home, Chicago, I get lawn seats anyway so, to be as close as I was — when I know it’ll never happen again, rules.

I sadly had to miss The Pixies and The Replacements on Sunday due to the weather having rained all morning til about 6:30 PM where it was nothing but cold winds without sun and my friend and I had to leave because it was close to hypothermia weather.

Sunday looks like a long list too because Steve and I literally had nothing going on after Chuck Ragan other than waiting for Against Me!

We hung out with Robert most of the time til we split. I got to meet a new friend also named Rob who I made friends with off of Tumblr.

Friday, Kara and Missy were with us as well as Saturday. The weather was pretty decent. Friday was cold with the sun and Saturday with sun, was hot as fuck outside. I guess Sunday had to be the dark, cold, gloomy day.

I had a wonderful time. To say these bands played my favorite songs and to say I’ve got to see Joan Jett and fucking FLAG, is extremely amazing. Danzig blew my fucking MIND. Blew it completely. To hear Danzig AND Misfit songs for my first time, ever?! words can not express.

I wish I could type the feelings and emotions I had this whole weekend in this blog but I can’t. I don’t think I could describe it perfect enough for you to feel it over a computer screen miles away from me.

My favorite band[besides Trio] couldn’t have been any better. Say what ever the fuck you want about Blink or the dudes in the band. They’re fucking awesome beings and they can make fart and dick jokes all they want. As long as they’re playing to make themselves happy because its what they love to do and live for, to make people like me happy, I have no complaints. 

Whoever is pissy because everyone at the fest played ‘hits’ is fucking stupid.

Chicago’s RIOT FEST starts tomorrow.

I’ll be there the entire weekend and I’m incredibly stoked.

I’ll be there with two lovely ladies, Kara and Missy, and a gnarly gent, Esteban. If any of you see this and are going, I hope our paths cross.

This weekend is going to be incredibly gnarly\hot\fun.

These next three days are gonna kick my ass. I set up my schedule yesterday with Esteban, which I’ll post a photo of because — why not?

Here’s to ending summer awesome with awesome people surrounded by awesome bands who have changed my\your\our awesome life.

lol at my 3rd photo in attempt to zoom. My phone wasn’t being cool with me yesterday but these are the shots I got because I was mainly trying to focus on the matches than my phone :3

These shots are right before the show started and when Randy and Brian went against The Shield fellas.

What a wonderful night.

That morning my boyfriend and I went to see ‘Man Of Steel’ with his parents and two sisters and right when we got home we ate and headed for the PPV. It was a real good day/day off.

My boyfriend and I are now gonna try to go to RAW this September. TOOOOOOOO SWEEEEEEET~ oh…wait..that’s WCW ;D

Is anybody in Chicago seeing The Lonely Island this weekend?

Dear God please take photos or video for me to gawk at.

If anyone is going to the Metro Q&A, wanna get me an autograph?

Fuck I’d kill to go. I gotta work :/ 

Steve and I just randomly took a trip downtown. Took a late 3:40 train to get there around 4:20ish and we just wanted to walk around and bullshit. Had no destination, just wanted to walk and go downtown because we’ve been meaning to.

1] Walking through Walgreens, I step on something. Lo and behold, I supported breast cancer. It was a pin, I laughed so incredibly hard. Tis one of my favorite photos of me. Kudos, Esteban.

2] I’m not sure why, but I thought of Kman while trying this on. It was sort of a ‘had to’. I love Biggie haha. and I don’t know..it was just something about his words. They hypnotized me. BA DUM TISS. <3

3 -5] Steve and I being the raddest fucking Chicagoans that we are, we took photos on ‘The Bean’. It was fun. 

6] I took this while we were walking through this flower, plant area I’m not entirely sure I’ve been through before, haha. Blues Fest was happening and again…like last year…we didn’t get to go. Walked into a cool bar/grille type place though.

Steve bought a Peter Pan plushy for 4$. It was rather rad. I found him a Patti Smith record, it’s fairly new and it was 30% off. You’re welcome, Steve.

Yesterday was a very cool day.

ALKALINE TRIO. METRO, CHICAGO. MAY 30TH & 31ST.

Is anyone going? Did anyone preorder their tickets?

I perordered my May 30th ticket for May 31st wasn’t available for some reason so this Friday when every ticket goes on sale, I will be purchasing my May 31st ticket.

I can NOT wait. I am beyonnnnnd stoked! Two dates of Trio alongside with Bayside at the Metro! My favorite venue. I can not waiittttt. One show is even 18+ and that’s gonna rule extra hard.

This made my day yesterday and I’m still giddy as fuck. EVERYONE. COME TO THE METRO ON MAY 30TH-31ST. COME SAY HELLO TO ME AND WE’LL HAVE A DRINK AND SING ALONG TO TRIO AND HATE ON THE KIDS WHO DON’T BELONG THERE.

No? Too much?

Cheers.

It’s like walking on glass outside.

True story.

It’s raining, or was, or is drizzling, I don’t know. It’s 32 degrees outside, some snow is still left over.

I heard walking outside is like walking on glass. No salt is available near me, but I’m going to work soon. 

It’s about to be 5pm, I leave home at 5:30. Time to head out now, warm up the car and y’know — do my thing.

Be safe my Chicagoans.
