The Month Of February Comes To An End

So I guess a lot has happened since I last wrote...I'll try and sum it up in the not-so-typical jiscilla fashion.

Let's see...I've been on yet again another hiatus from dance (for personal reasons), but I did return for a couple classes here and there. On my first night returning after about a month with no dancing...of course...Cassie decides to come in and watch a class. For those that don't pay attention to my journal entries, Rhapsody has been her choreographer since day one and I dance with all her backup dancers. She dropped in before the Justin Timberlake concert with a friend (who just-so-happened to be wearing the BAPE hoodie I've been wanting for months now). Yes, she is genuinely as nice as she plays off to be on camera and she is probably even more gorgeous in person. The girl was barely wearing an ounce of makeup and she looked flawless...although, I have to admit, I like her better with dark hair.

Then...there was the Cartel afterparty which was loads of fun...but then again, when are parties at Revolver not any fun? Jessica is going to be in their next video for "Say Anything (Else)" and all I have to say about that is...it is an amazing video and tons of teenboppers will be sure to swoon...okay, and maybe some of us "older, mature" girls, too...lolz. Jessica will be the girl on the phone...look for her, she's supercute!

Ummm...then there's been some numerous dance parties going on...mostly taking place at none other than....okay, pretty much anywhere we go.

We had a Brooklyn Bar Hop the other weekend. My first time being at Royal Oak. I definitely dig, but we didn't spend enough time there to own the party, even though I know we would have if we did. Think gramma's house with fake wall candles and a bar in the living room. We then moved our party to Capone's where we literally invaded the VIP lounge section and completely took over. I almost regret not joining in on the dance party, but our cozy little room was too fun to leave. Oh, and might I add that fact that Brooklyn seems to be big on free pizza when you order a drink? Score! Oh wait...I'm lactose intolerant...still good though, everyone saves me the crust! PS...that night was way too cold and way too icy for my liking. Note to self: I need to stop wearing heels in the winter.

Last Tuesday was The Matches show at Bowery Ballroom. I was kind of in a slump and not feeling so well, so I'm a little sad to say it wasn't as amazing as a night as I had hoped (for me, at least). With The Matches being one of my current favorite bands, I wish I had enjoyed it more, but whatever...there's always next time. They still put on an amazing show.

Wednesday, my brother and his girlfriend came down to visit. It's kinda of an annual thing we have going (which really should be a lot more frequent than that), but the three of us kind of go on a shopping spree together. Last year, between the three of us, we spent over $2,000. Yeah, we tend to do a lot of damage...and believe it or not, my brother is the biggest spender of all. He reins all three years. But, for Christmas, Nate (my brother) had bought Ashley (his girlfriend) and I tickets to go see Wicked. It was a pretty amazing show, and I really loved the whole storyline. The lead of Elphaba had a fantastic voice and was definitely my favorite character (I guess that's typical, though). After the show we went to Alfredo's where my brother's roommate's girlfriend works (confusing, I know), and had an awesome dinner. She gave us a very generous discount, too. I had a salmon dish which seems to my new "regular" when I go out to fancy restaurants. We decided to stay in that night, though, so we could rest up for shopping the next day. We wanted to make sure we were in top condition for what was at hand. We woke early, went to breakfast, and then headed to Soho. Sadly, I had to leave them early than I had wanted (although, I'm sure that was a good thing for me money-wise). I was going to the Gym Class Heroes show later that night at Webster Hall...so I wanted to go home, get ready, and have time to rest.

The show was amazing (do I really use any other words?). I got my first listen of P.O.S. I'm a little curious to check 'em out a little further. Then RX Bandits kinda blew it away...dude, the drum solos! I don't even know if I have the words...but it was pretty dang sweet. Then, of course, Gym Class Heroes had the entire place bouncing off the walls. The girls in the front row were sure to be swooning all night long not only with Travie hovering over them, but with Marc and his supercute dance moves which I have yet to learn from him...not to mention a surprise guest appearance by William Beckett from The Academy Is... I have a video clip of this and you could hear the girls go absolutely wild. The girls, Jesse, and I were up in the balcony, though getting our dance on without having to get squished by screaming fans. I kinda like being able to move...I have a thing with getting pushed around. I don't take to it very well. Yea, moshing and I have never made friends. After that...we moved along to several different locations...all for different purposes. To eat, to drink, to party, to game? Can't say I really made it to the gaming part. Hey, dancing take a lot out of a girl.

Friday night...I accidently passed out on the couch at 8:30 and woke up at 2:30 in the morning. Ooops, I kinda missed the Friday night Revolver dance party.

Saturday, I made up for it. We started our night out in Brooklyn. Alligator Lounge...my first time. Again, a free pizza with every drink you order...yes, a whole pizza (ok, they're kind of "personal" size...but still). It's main purpose was food and drinks...mission accomplished. Jessica & Kelly's friends were in town from Michigan and I have to say I L-O-V-E these two girls. Amber and Allie...sisters and a definite good time. And as we headed out to Manhattan, Allie decides it's a good idea to challenge random late-night riders of the L train to a Chicken Noodle Soup Dance-Off...yes, on the NYC Subway. Please see video below...probably the most hilarious thing I've seen in a while. Allie is my new best friend. You really just have to see it for yourself...and trust me, it's a lot better in person. These other girls took it so seriously. Please note that Allie was at major disadvantage. The girl she challenged had the song playing on her headphones. Notice how Allie backs up in the corner. She'll prolly kill me for this. Other than that, we continued the party at Union Bar. Not particularly my favorite kind of place, but that never matters when Mr. Michael Oppeinheimer and I get on the dance floor. We go full out....no holding back. As a matter of fact, there was literally a crowd surrounding us the entire night, just watching us from the sides...even taking picture after picture of us making a fool of ourselves. We weren't alone...this is the kind of crowd I hang out with. We just dance the night away. I have yet to see our pictures all over the internet. One guy even pull me and Mike aside saying "We're not from New York...will you take a picture with me?" I guess we really represent the New York community! Hmmm, I wonder where that will end up. Then...as 4am rolls around...does the party stop? Of course not! We even exited the bar in full dance mode...I bet they've never seen a crowd like us before...and I'm sure they were glad finally see us leave seeing as we were the last ones there. I'm sure they had no idea that we were completely sober the whole night (yea, I'm not much of a drinker). So what to do at 4am, you ask? Of course, go to another party! In this case...to the SNL after afterparty at Room Service. Yep...they have an "After Afterparty." This party starts at 4am...no joke...and you need a special password to get in. I kind of felt cool when Allie had to whisper it in the bodyguard's ear. I'll admit I only lasted another hour and a half...and with the kind of strobe lighting they had going on, I feared I might have an epilitic fit. It was a little much for 4:00 in the morning...but again, still fun.

All in all...it's been a crazy past month. And of course, I tried to keep it short and sweet...but no, that never happens with me. That is it for now. Hope everyone had a good night...and now it's off to bed for me.

WAYN: Kimmy Gibbler

Where are you now?

Ok, I don't know exactly why, but I caught myself wondering today, "Where is Kimmy Gibbler?" So I did some research...and came up with nothing. Lol. I don't think she's doing any work right now (acting-wise)...I think she went to college, got married, had a baby, and then worked as an assistant some director at the college she attended. Boooooring. I was looking for something better...oh well.

Howevvvver, I did find that "Kimmy Gibbler" is actually in the urban dictionary:
Definition: When you refuse to leave after you have a one night stand, even when they ask you nicely. "Last night I met some whore at the bar....we came back to my place and she gave me the Kimmy Gibbler....she f****d the hell out of me and then refused to go home when I asked her nicely."

I knew I liked Sienna Miller

Sienna Miller made this statement that I kinda like about Britney in Britain's OK! magazine. Come on now...how true is this? We all have our moments (ok, days...errr maybe years?):
"I think everyone's entitled to their own decisions. Girls are doing the same thing all over the world as what these girls are doing, but they're not being photographed while they're doing it. I think it's healthy for young girls to go out and have fun in their teenage years and early twenties. I'm not going to judge anyone."

Snack Attack

Ok...so what I really wanted to say was..."Snake Attack"...but "Snack Attack" just sounded so much better. And well...it's not really a snake attack either...but this is what I lurked today and found interesting.

10 year old attacks woman in a Target
I'd like to think I could take a 10yr old. Haha...no, but what the hell is the 10 yr old getting the brunt of this when a 14, 16, and 20 yr old were involved?

The Blind Pink Snake has not been spotted in over 100 years!
Am I the only person that thinks this looks like somebody's intestines????

Goodbye January...Hello February

I wanted to make a real post before I went to bed...so here it goes...hopefully short and sweet...just enough to give you a taste of what went on this past week.

We (the curbside gang and I) had a slumber last weekend at Christy's place in Hoboken, which I'm sure you got wind of by the pictures I posted. Obviously, we had a really fun time being the dorks we are flipping out over videos on MTV, Minz minz nativz, makeup, & oreos...I know, it just makes sense, right? Anyways, it was so much fun that I think it might become a regular deal...or at least it should be.

As the weekdays rolled around, I tried to keep it low key on Monday knowing that our Tuesdays are like most people's Fridays....not to mention, at the strike of midnight (Tuesday night/Wednesday morn) it would be officially Christy's 24th birthday! Erica and Jessica being the sneaky children they are...had originally planned on getting her Young Love's new album which was marked so convienently to come out on her birthday. And for those that don't know...Christy absolutely flips out for Dan Keyes and his swoontastic beats. However, the girls got word that his album release party was that very night and was scheduled oh-so perfectly to play at the exact strike of twelve o'clock midnight...honestly, what could be more perfect? So basically, you see where this is going...we got into this exclusive party in which was held at the Purevolume Loft (and boy do they mean loft....how many flights of stairs was the walk-up?). Anyways...it couldn't be more perfect. There was an open-bar, we got interviewed by some weird TV station/show that came across to be foreign seeing as none of us could make out the name on the microphone, Jessica and I got paparrazzo-ed to the max by lastnightsparty's Bronque's (is that how you spell it?) during the set of Young Love's amazing show. Not to put it bluntly, but he was basically obsessed with Jessica and even pulled her away from me numerous times just to take photographs of her. I think he's found his new muse. The only downer was the half-an-hour wait for the bathroom at the end of the night...we did make friends in line, though. Then it was off to Black & White to cap off the night....obviously....it WAS a Tuesday! Overall...Christy's birthday was much a success. PS...I recently found out I was colorblind and from New Jersey...O rly? Screw you gawker! Lol.

Wednesday rolled around, and having passed out during lunch hour (under Hollace's supervision, of course)...I opted for a 10:30 bedtime slot.

Thursday...the same...as I wanted to rest up for the weekend and I had felt a cold coming on. I will say this though...Jessica was shooting for the new Cartel video which we all can't wait to see. Erica was silk screen-printing tees for the Permanent Me show this weekend (I wish I could be artistic like that). They came out really great. And I....I sat on my butt taking down Christmas decorations and watching The O.C. (hey...it IS February!). BTW...The O.C. decides to get really good again when they go ahead and cancel it...go figure.

Friday, we attempted to go see Band of Thieves...in which we officially met the other night. I believe they're B&W regulars (am I wrong?). I dunno, but I feel like we've run into them a lot. I honestly have never heard their music, but I thought...eh, why not...it'll be a fun way to start off the weekend. So...there was a line? Sorry, we don't do lines and I'm not just talking cocaine (....yes that is a joke people, you're talkin to a girl who barely even drinks). It was way too cold to be waiting in line (although I was the first one there holding our spot). I really didn't care enough whether or not we got in...just some place warm would be nice. We walked to Revolver instead. We got there and Rachel and the boys were already there pretty much ready to go with their dancing shoes on. I don't think they ever take them off. I really don't know how they do it, but they officially managed to get the ENTIRE bar dancing, stomping, clapping, and singing. Do I raise my hands and say "Hallelujah?" Uh, maybe not...but it was fun. There was some drunkeness...mine lasted about an hour and a half (yea, I consider one vodka cranberry and a buzz to be "drunk" for me...whatevs). I actually think we called it an early night around 2:30 or so. Christy and I took the "F" home which was great on my part cause I really shouldn't keep paying for all these cab rides home. I'll become broke before you know it. A man on the way home was extremely rude to me even though I don't believe I couldn't have been any more polite (even after he yelled in my face). Then seeing as I was in heels I ended up a little behind him, heading towards the same exit (...the elevators cause apparently the escalators were closed), and he totally watched the elevator doors close in my face even though he knew I was a couple steps behind him. Sometimes, I really don't get New Yorkers...but you really learn to just roll with the punches, here. Luckily, I didn't miss the last bus home because of that little incident.

Saturday, I remained in my PJs all day ...and pretty much following into all day Sunday as well. I feel like I'm getting sick, and I'm not too excited seeing as the flu has been going around.

But yea...that is pretty much all, and it is past my bedtime. Sleep tight.xoxox

I'm gonna get killed for this one.

Uh, this gets me so frustrated. It's been quite a while since my last post, so when I actually do decide to, it ends up being a long, lengthy, in depth entry and then.....boom....it's gone. So basically, yes...I lost another post. Maybe this is why I don't write as much. Ok, maybe that's not the real reason, but it does get me a little heated. I'm not even gonna go into anything I was writing about before anyways because now I just don't feel like getting into it again. Grrrr. Guess you'll never know my deepest darkest thoughts....lol, jk. Even if they were...it'd be (like Jessica would say) a Sups-filtered post...and y'all wouldn't be reading this (who knows if you all actually do anyways).

Anyways...Today is the lovely Kate Moore's birthday. She is definitely gonna kill me for this and this probably won't stay up long...but in honor of her birthday, I thought I'd post this old video from last year. It's still a private video so you can only find the link here and only here. Enjoy it for the few minutes it stays up. Kate don't hate me. xoxo.

Chocolate covered cookie dough
The O.C.
Mashed Potatoes
Christmas Decorations
Young Love

That is all.
