Feel me up Friday Awards: I posed with her and our clothes were...

If it's possible for skin to peel away from the heat, I'm well on my way. It's been effing ridiculous here all week. It's like, steamy and suffocating and disgusting and I hate it. #whinewhinewhinelittlecandyland

Aside from that, I got super sweet We Hear the Dead postcards and bookmarks in the mail from Ms. Dianne (Salerni). Anyone who wants one, just say so in the comments and I'll get them to you on a first come first serve until they're gone! Yay give away!

Another plus was, I finished the last lesson in my soon to be public YA Novel Writing for Beginners course for KSURF online. Woo-freakin-Hoo!!! Time for celebration drinkys<--scratch that after dropping my phone in the toilet 2 weeks back...

Okay, so time for celebration chocolate and oh...did I mention this band I'm going to see tonight called...uhh.....freakin' New Medicine? I might have mentioned them once...or twice....hmm...

Oh, and did I say...Candyland made the guest list? Yuh-huh. Thank you Matt Brady. I'm sure Monday I'll have all kinds of gushing to do.

Random Fact: Candyland saw the most random band last night (kind of). That's right. The Gin Blossoms? What? It was free, what can I say...This fact goes no further than this post. I mean it! I'd rather you tell people about dropping my glasses in the toilet than seeing the Gin Blossoms. Yeah, welcome to my world, new followers (and we only stayed for the opening band because it rained like a mofo before the GB so, yeah...).

Random Fact: In high school, my former best friend and I had her senior pictures taken. Together. Clothes on. Sorry to ruin the fantasy (but we were kids so yuck). Seriously un-cool? Yeah. But we didn't care. I still have the picture but I'd rather see the Gin Blossoms again than post. (Next time Candyland has a drinky without puking, maybe it'll find its way on here, I'm sure...)

OH WOW! It's been such a long week. That was exactly what I needed to end this week with. Has anyone ever told you how sensitive your touch is? Oh. Well they should. Magnificent! I want to again thank Bru from Pitch Slapped for honoring me with an amazing award yesterday. I'm beyond grateful. If you don't know this woman, check her out. She's beautiful.

And OMG I can't believe another week has gotten away from me without passing on some awards but dear friends, I must prepare for tonight's inevitable embarrassment (meeting Matt Brady)...

Hellzzz yeah.

Until next Friday my lovelies, tell me...
Have you ever been to a concert you didn't want to announce to the world (as I just did)?

Candyland. OUUUTTTT.

Ooh, bookmark me!! And be careful this weekend. Enjoy yourself. Concert? That would imply I remembered it...

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Glad the bookmarks arrived okay!

Have a hell of a good time --and can't wait to hear on Monday what got dropped in the toilet, what kind of gushing you did, and how you broke it gently to Matt Brady that you're happily married.

Congrats on finishing writing your course lessons - awesome! I'm sure they will help a lot of people.

I rarely go to concerts - too many people around make me grumpy but enjoy going to yours tonight!

Have a great weekend sweets! Congrats on the award and I know how you feel. I have a stalk pile of awards in the back that need to get dusted off and polished and given away to some bright smiling bloggy faces.

Enjoy the weekend. Stay cool. I'm dying here in NY. The AC is on full blast.
Any bookmarks and postcards left? I've recently developed a bookmark obsession.;)

Have fun at your concert! I hope it rocks! =D

Dawn said...

Have a great time! I, uh, er, took my younger sister to Tiffany MANY years ago. It was her first concert! I'm a concert junkie and I'm sure there have been many busts (like being forced to take Mom to Rod Stewart) but I've had some major hits too.

Vicki Rocho said...

My husband dragged me to the Grateful Dead in Vegas two years in a row. It was an ummmmmmm experience.

Tawna Fenske said...

Too funny, I saw the Gin Blossoms myself back when I was in college and they were actually popular. I was supposed to be covering it for my college newspaper, only the photographer & I got mildly wasted beforehand and the entire concert became a blur to me. I vaguely recall injuring myself dancing on a chair, but beyond that, I had no recollection of what songs they played or how they did. That was unfortunate, since I had to write a @#$% review the next day. Fortunately, a friend who'd been there sober was able to bail me out.

Have a great weekend!

Right on for finishing your writing course, and congrats on your award!

I used to have a Gin Blossom's CD.
My first concert was Metallica. I dressed sort of trashy and sat on my boyfriend's shoulders. My only saving grace was when his trashy friends asked me to 'crotch' a bottle of gin in order to sneak it in, I declined.
Memories.
I am not embarrassed about Metallica -- I'm more embarrassed about the boyfriend.

BTW, my husband used to work for a cell phone company. People would bring in their phones that just stopped working for no reason. The number one reason, he usually found out, was that they dropped it in the toilet.
