Life Update?

Published August 4, 2013 by veryjaneeyre

I wish I could say that I went out and got a life and that explains my absence, but alas, that did not happen.

I have done some things however, like: attend my sister’s baby shower, struggle writing this thing again this year, and go to my 3rd BTR concert.

BTR at Mohegan Sun 7/20/13.

BTR at Mohegan Sun 7/20/13.

If anyone read this post, sister and I were in the same damn section. (I mean, hooray for not having to deal with stairs, signs, or having to stand for the entire show.)

Time for the obligatory video. My niece hijacked her mom’s brain, so she was a little slow on the uptake and the first couple of seconds are missed. Still pretty damn good. My only complaint is that I would have loved a full version of Crazy For U.

Time to stop procrastinating.

If only I had a good thought in my head.

time of my life…sorta (part 2)

Published September 3, 2012 by veryjaneeyre

So, remember how I saw these guys in March?  Well…I saw them again last night. And I forgot one thing about closer seats.

GIRLS WITH SIGNS HAVE NO CONSIDERATION FOR THOSE BEHIND THEM.

Okay, I’m sure that’s not always true, but seriously, the girl 3 rows in front of us should have been beat down when she continued to hold up her “James, I’m your Worldwide girl” sign AFTER the song had been performed. (Irony of ironies: banner for venue’s way of resolving concert ruining issues was seen ON THE WAY OUT.) But to prove my no-consideration theory, the girl behind HER also held up a sign for a good portion of the concert. This video illustrates my point nicely (keep your eyes at the bottom of the video at the 23 second mark; I dealt with this chick for 2/3 of the concert! She was blocking 75% of my view. Grrr.) :

I would have pointed out their egregious error had they been closer to me.

How about some pretty stills instead?

Let’s start with the end. I still have errant confetti in my purse.

During the Beatles breakdown, Kendall asked the crowd: “What’s your favorite Beatles song?” Me: 8 Days a Week. Sister: ??? Me: What? It is. I don’t care that they didn’t cover it.

Logan singing “Help!”

Thankfully Logan is a good actor. He’d been tweeting emo lyrics a couple of times yesterday and I worried a bit that he’d be less than mentally present during the show. Sister blasted Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never, Ever Getting Back Together” from the parking lot before the show for him. Venue’s house music counteracted that though…last song we heard before BTR’s set was Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain”. Me: Stop it! You’re not helping emo boy!

Carlos is just precious.

Um, Kendall? Why are you hiding your ass? What’s with the butt-flaps?

I seriously think my sister took this just for Manda. 🙂

Kendall…before he turned into a sweat ball.

Logan singing “I Wanna Hold Your Hand”.

I’m not sure why Carlos looks upset. Could it be because Kendall’s attention is elsewhere? 😉

I’m not avoiding James for those who view this and are going “Where’s James?” Sister took MANY pics of that gorgeous man.

James is “Elevate”-ing.

So beautiful.

More perfection.

I mean seriously gorgeous.

Oh…you already know.

My two favorite guys. I tried convincing sister to “defect” to their side during “Windows Down”. Alas, we did not.

I love them.

You can thank sister for video and pics…it’s my job to keep myself upright; she does everything else. Thanks, sister!

Btw, those are MY earrings.

what? a post?

Hey! I’m not dead. (Although last weekend, I almost was.)

However, this is nothing more than another procrastination post. I should be working on my big bang but I keep grabbing onto every distraction I can because…I can. Think of this video as a visual summary of my bang (sorta):

If watching that gave you a few ideas, you might be in a better position than me, but it encompasses a few of the key elements of what will eventually be my story.

I have a vague “outline”, a few unclear ideas and no real end result. What I need to do is to make notes and get my shit together so that if I actually get a confirmation about my requested time off, I will be writing some of that time. (I hope.)

In the meantime, I think I’m going to rewatch Sherlock take the Reichenbach Fall…because I can. Also because watching it the first time with a hurt brain doesn’t help catch the nuances. Or be able to read the texts on the screen.

not doing what i should…again.

Another blatant procrastination post.

I should be writing…something. A fic I promised, a review of someone else’s awesome fic; something other than this post. And……….I’m not really writing here either. Ha. Watch some btr-related videos instead!

Here’s something from my newest obsession (which you can thank shisou_eimin for):

I just may love Benedict Cumberbatch. I already loved Martin Freeman.

The first protests. Don’t fight it, John!

I’ve said this to her, and I’m not sure why, but I can picture shisou_eimin shooting up a wall because she was bored too. Love ya, M!

Alright, I’ve wasted enough time. Post done.

time of my life

Published March 11, 2012 by veryjaneeyre

About a week and a half ago, I went to Foxwoods to see 4 very attractive guys sing.

James, Kendall, Logan and Carlos during "Elevate".

The word boyband has been used to describe them. Pshhht. Whatever. The term I like to use is fake boyband.

Please don’t get me wrong. I adore these guys, probably more than I should at my demographically inappropriate age, but they were put together for a tv show. Singing was not the number one priority- which is why I gave them a bit of leeway live and was happy to be proven wrong because each of them can sing and sing well. Dancing is a bit of another story, although I’ve been told that it was better than past shows. (I’m looking at you, Logan Henderson and Kendall Schmidt.)

I enjoyed the show enough to have tickets to see them next tour. I wish I had better seats this time, but at least I’ll be at the venue.

In the mean time, I’ll enjoy the pics my sister took last time.

Gorgeous James Maslow

Kendall Schmidt

Logan Henderson

Awesome Carlos Pena

here’s my list of complaints

Published January 6, 2012 by veryjaneeyre

No more messed up reasons for me to stay.
-Wasting My Time,
Default

That less complaints resolution I mentioned last blog? I’m about to obliterate it. Get ready.

  • Sexily is not a word in my vocabulary. Sexy is subjective enough, so let’s make it more non-descriptive by throwing on an -ly and calling it an adverb. Stop using sexily, people. It makes me want to hurt you.
  • The Mountain Dew I purchased in the Call of Duty packaging is regular MD and not the tropical flavored MD I was anticipating. Still yummy, just not what I wanted.
  • A verbal acknowledgement of a couple’s wedding anniversary should be sufficient. Why should I be forced to buy a card and /or gift EVERY YEAR because two people decided to get married?
  • I’ve been sleeping horribly but don’t know why.
  • I had a bad day yesterday only to have it compounded by an even worse day today. Congratulations. If your goal was to make me hate you, you’ve succeeded because you certainly aren’t my favorite person.
  • Why does google have to have encrypted search terms? For privacy? What’s that? Now I can’t figure out what brings people here when people do a search while signed in at google. Not signed in? I can totally see that speedo-gate has made a resurgence (11 views today alone) and that someone searching for a “sympathetic cryer” has found me, again.
  • A few memories of almost being beaned with a door by my not favorite person still make me very wary when I approach said door. I hate that he continues to impact my actions.
  • March 1st seems so f’in far away. Damn it. I want to see BTR now!
  • The fact that I had to make a complaint list. This may become my Friday thing. Store all my complaints and let them all out at once. Sounds like a plan.

i’m ready to go

I must be dreaming,
don’t hit the alarm clock.
Love Me, Love Me,
Big Time Rush

I warned you. Click here to listen to Elevate in full.

Love Me, Love Me would be my favorite of the songs I hadn’t already heard aka the songs that have not been a part of the episodes. I’m really curious to see how they can pull off this song live because I think it’s damn near impossible.

I’m also sad that Paralyzed didn’t make the cut since I love it too. :/

To cheer up, I like to watch the Music Sounds Better With U video.

Oh, and seeing just how many people continue to look for the speedo picture amazes me.
