Zomgz tired D:  
The concert yesterday was awesome. Debbie Harry sounded great. She's still got it. Unfortunately, her set was kind of boring :( I can't put my finger on it, because her voice still sounds awesome. Erasure was just fantastic. I was actually really surprised they didn't play more from the new album, but it was very nice to hear so much of their earlier stuff. I think they were focusing more on the uptempo hits, and ended the set with O'Lamour. It was totally worth it to see them. I also picked up a tour shirt. XD We ended up leaving early in the Cyndi Lauper set because we didn't want to get stuck in retarded traffic on the way out. She still has a set of lungs on her, too! :O She sounded great, but we didn't stick around for more than 2 songs. There's a possibility that somthing cool could have happened at the very end and we missed it. I was secretly hoping Debbie Harry would sing together with Erasure since they covered Rapture on the Cowboy album :X But I feel like I got my money's worth, so I'm happy.

My skirt is about half done. I need to try and finish it tonight. It is theoretically possible that if I have enough fabric, I can finish that cape in 3 days. Whether it is actually going to happen or not.. I can't tell. I need to pack costumes tonight at any rate. That's somthing I can do now to save me stress on Weds. I have a lot of costume peices to find, so if I don't make my checklists and start early, I could be screwed when I get up there. XD

I'm stilly pretty tired from yesterday. Yesterday was pretty busy. I did somthing fun with my hair, but I had put so much gunk in it that it was doing it's own weird thing after I took my hair down at night. I was way too tired to shower, so I went to bed all dirty and ick. I slept really well until my own hairfilth was starting to get to me, so I had to wake up and shower XD By then, it was too late to get back to sleep. I think after Matt goes to sleep tonight, I'll try to finish some sewing projects.. Later tonight, I will sleep like a log :O

Then, I'll spend the rest of the week freaking out about Expo D:

Yay freaking out about Expo! It's a good thing... maybe.

After four songs into Cyndi's set, Rosie O'Donnell came out and played secondary percussion plus backup vocals for another 6 or so songs, then all the bands came out on stage and did a group montage, singing ABBA's "Take a Chance on Me", followed by "True Colors" (duh).

The dark and mellow reworking of "She-Bop" was really cool.

My girl and I were pretty late, coming in halfway through Debbie's set, so I was bummed at missing Dresden Dolls, but when we went to the West Plaza restrooms, I got to see Amanda Palmer of the Dolls in front of the VIP Lounge performing a really bizarre acoustic cover of Radiohead's "Creep" while playing a ukulele. I got her to sign my ticket, Woot.

I left my cellphone in my girlfriend's car, with my pants (I changed into shorts on arrival), so when I tried to send you a "Where you at?" text, I realised my telepathy sucks.

So you made it there after all? :O I had my phone with me, but texting me does no good because I don't really know how to text back XD If I try typing a word in, it auto-subs in some other word I don't want and it drives me nuts :X
We were actually late, too :X We came in right as the Dresden dolls were finishing up. The worst part was the fact that the last thing they played sounded REALLY familiar, but I only caught a little bit of the very end, so I couldn't put my finger on it.
I love Erasure's ABBA covers, so I guess I did miss out when we ducked out early. I can hope they go on a solo tour later though since this new album is out.. but I have a feeling they probably won't XD

I always check setlists/reviews for concerts I attend... you probably heard their cover of Black Sabbath's "War Pigs".

If your cellphone is a Nokia, try rapidly double-pressing the key that controls capitalisation. That tends to disable the "smart" word function. (That feature is the apex of 21st century technological irony).
