The time has come for my trusty pink blog and I to part ways. I have to say, it's been a long, fun journey. We must not be saddened by this good-bye, as it has opened the window to a brand new blog...feel free to check it out!!!!!

SO Awesome

Went to the Crossfade concert last night and it was totally awesome. I really liked April Sixth, the first opening band. Their drummer was beautiful. The second openers, No Address, didn't really do it for me, but I was also really anxious to just see Crossfade, so...yeah. And their lead singer looked like my cousin's husband, Jeff, so I just kept thinking about that. And I don't really understand the point of having everyone in the crowd flip you off...? But, you know, whatever floats your boat. Anyways, Crossfade was AMAZING. Ed is such an awesome guitarist! And he's HOT! There was only one girl between me & the stage for the whole concert, so there was definite eye contact--and physical contact! Ed touched my hand & I was in heaven. I did get pretty smashed, though--and I mean that literally. Like, I understand how jumping around and stuff at a concert is fun, but I don't understand the thrill of running into a riot of people who just want to push each other. Where's the fun in that? It's beyond me. But even though I got suffocated and elbowed and it was like 900 degrees in there, I had a totally awesome time.

In other news, tomorrow Brad & Jess are bringing my niece over (finally). I haven't seen her in like, 400 years or something. Dave has tomorrow off, so I'm jealous. I know he deserves it more than I do, but I am suffering from a serious lack of sleep.

Anyways, I got a new Xanga site so check it out if you want,

The Time Has Come

Jeez, the last few weeks have really flown by! Or maybe it just feels like that because I keep thinking today is Thursday. Either way, the Crossfade concert is still tonight. And I made a final costume decision in the nick of time. Sucks I only got about six hours of sleep last night, though. I need a good, full eleven hours of sleep to feel completely rested, but I can get by comfortably on eight. Six just really doesn't cut it.

So my mom thinks it's time we all make out our wills. What a bummer subject. There's nothing that will kill a nice conversation about flying to Philedelphia for vacation like someone bringing up the possibility that we all might die. But, it's the smart thing to do so I have to figure out how I want to divi up the dough. Who gets what? Who gets how much? Who deserves it more? These are all questions I have to ponder as I'm making mental lists of my possessions. I'm worth 50 grand in life insurance (which only goes to the sole beneficiaries or the people in my will, so please don't try to off me) and I own my car (which, last time I checked, isn't that big pimpin', by the way). Other than that my life's worth comes down to about 20 pairs of shoes & a wardrobe my dad says (quote) "could clothe a small country". Although that's not even close to true, it's kind of a sad thought that my life can be measured in such a few measly items. And $50,000 doesn't go very far when you think about how many ways it would have to be divided. I've thought a lot about this, and decided that I'd just rather that none of us die right now. Let's just keep things simple.

The parentals leave for SD in 10 days, and they decided to leave Rachel here, which means I get to baby-sit her rebellious little self all weekend. Joy! It also means Dave & I won't be able to have the house to ourselves, unless Rachel decides to run away again & I can't find her. *Sigh* But at least I don't have to worry about taking the dogs out. I always try to look on the bright side.

Anyways, I'm leavin' in 45 min so I'd better bizzounce. More later.

Smile Like You Mean It!

So how bummed am I that I can't go see the Killers when they come to Omaha? Very, very bummed I am. But I am leaving for Philedelphia the very next day & we have to be at the airport at 6:30 a.m., so going to a concert in another city probably isn't the smartest thing I could do...especially considering I am a very last-minute packer & will most definitely still be doing laundry that night. Still, I am saddened that I won't be able to go see them. They're like, my favorite band right now. At least I get to see Crossfade. In SIX days! Yay for me!

I hate being under 21. It's really just not fair. We went to bw3's last night for 30-cent wings, and it was bad enough having to just look at other people enjoy their beers--but, no, they insist on making ginormous black permanent marker X's on, not one, but both hands. Talk about adding insult to injury. Well, May 2nd is my half-birthday, so that means I only have a year and a half left of my minor-ness.

The parentals are going out of town in 17 days, so I'm excited for that. I love being at my house when nobody else is there--it gives me such a feeling of freedom. And, since I live at Dave's and all my stuff lives at my house, it's nice to have a place that's all mine, just to relax. Even if it is only for the weekend.

Two days 'til Friday! It can't come soon enough, I'll tell you that much. I am broke as a joke! I think I have $18 left in my account. Damn taxes & bills. Wouldn't it be great if I could just win the lottery? Or maybe I have some long-lost millionaire relative that I don't know about who wants to put me in their will. Either way, I would be satisfied.

Anyways, I have a bunch of work stuff to do, so I'm gonna get back to it. Have a fantastical day. More later.

P.S. Sarah Thompson put a link to my blog on hers! Ch-check it out! (

Can't You Feel Me Reaching to You?

Got tickets yesterday to go see CROSSFADE at the Grove. I'm so stoked! I absolutely love them. Plus, the Grove isn't THAT big, so maybe I'll get to make some eye-contact with Ed. Haha. I just have to remember not to wear flip-flops to a show ever again. Learned that one that hard way (Incubus, August 2002). Like it wasn't bad enough that I got kicked in the face & practically crushed under moshers, I had to lose my shoes, too. What a bummer.

One month & a day until Philly. That's too tight. I'm stoked to go to New York & see the Statue of Liberty & Empire State Building. Oh! And my dad decided he's going to take the train back to Philly from New York with me so I don't have to worry about getting mugged and/or shot. Well, hopefully I won't have to worry about it. I guess if someone has a gun, there's not a whole lot anyone can do about it...but let's not think about that.

So the parentals are leaving in three weeks to go to South Dakota again, leaving me the house to myself (and the dogs, ugh) all weekend. It's not that I don't like the dogs, they're just really hard to take care of alone--especially Kairo. He's massive. But it should be a good time anyways. I love when me and Dave have our own space--it makes me miss his apartment! I love being able to have our own schedules & peace & quiet if we want it. And if we want to go out, we don't have to make up something to tell his parents. It's really kind of funny, because my parents are pretty laid back about me going out & stuff, and they even joke now sometimes about me partying, but they would never let Dave sleep in my bed. His parents, on the other hand, do not think partying or anything is funny, but they let me stay there. Go figure.

Well, anyways, I have a bunch of work to get done so I'd better get to it. 11 days to Crossfade!!!! More later.

I Think I'm Alone Now

Doesn't seem to be anyone a-rou-ound. That's Tiffany, right? You know, I remember her songs, but not much of her. I was always more of a New Kids on the Block fan (pre-fire starting & pre-NKOTB). I even had New Kids sandals. But I remember those in a negative light because I was wearing them the first time I ever stepped on a nail. Had they been more sturdy, they could've saved my poor little footsies. But you can't diss the New Kids. They were great. I actually bought a cd of theirs the other day, and no I'm not embarrassed to say so. My sister, our cousin, and myself were taking a nice little trip to Best Buy, loadin' up on cd's, and I came across it. Then I noticed the price tag said it was only seven bucks, so I had to jump at this opportunity. Although I think I should start practicing caution when I feel I see these so-called "opportunities", because I'm finding myself quite broke about now. You know, I work 40 hours a week at $9 an hour (which for some reason the TAX people think they're entitled to most of). I have two bills, for my phone, and for my insurance (of which I only pay the difference from liability to full coverage.) And do you know how much money I have in the bank right now? $41. That's sad. It's a sickness or something--I can't stop! Hello, my name is Jenelle, and I'm a Shopoholic. So when I get paid tomorrow, my goal is to save at least half of my check, so at least I'll have something (besides new capris) to show for my hard work.

Anyways, I've got to get back to this hard work of mine, so that's all for now, folks.

More Later.
