"Just Like Heaven.."

Tried to catch up this morning with my darling bloggy friends. I think I got everyone :)
How was New Years?

It was pretty insane on this end. It was an incredibly long drive and the casino was like a live taping of The Jersey Shore. I actually witnessed a fight in route to see Jim and the main fighter looked like Mike "the situation". If you don't know this show or have not heard of it you simply must. It's freakin' golden!! I love all of those kids.

The gig by Jimmy Eat World was amazing, as always. They didn't play anything new, kept a nice upbeat set list. They played my request just before midnight so I was extra happy. Got to see/chat with all the boys as well after. Always a good time.

I think I gambled only twenty bucks..of course I didn't win. My buds that went along gambled a bit as well and no one really left any richer. It was fun just the same though. I'm not a big gambler. I feel like I could use that money for something else so it's not for me.

Another highlight was getting to see the new JA 90! It's just wood grain with a clear varnish finish and it's a beaut!! Heres a pic so you can all admire: It's sooooo pretty.

Oooh, I'm so glad you got your request played and that you got to hang out with the band! How cool is that?!

And I love that song by the Cure!

Yay! So glad you had a good time. You're just a plethora of new music for me - and I am loving it like Justin Timberlake at McDonald's! I hadn't a clue who Jimmy Eat World was - I probably would have just patted his head and fed him a twinkie but googled and discovered "The Middle" and I think it shall be one of my theme songs for the new year! So fun. First Gaga - now this. I can't wait to see who you throw at me next!

Happy New Year, dearheart! Many blessings to you. This is gonna be a good one - I can feel it.

Richard-I'm a sucker for The Cure. That song is so beautiful :)

Rabs-I will have to make you a mix cd sometime :) I have a playlist on my ipod titled: Penny's Theme Songs. You gotta have those :)
This year is gonna be good! We will make it fantastico!

I love the Cure too. I'm sure that from my teens I have a copy of some collection of poems by Byron where I doodled the lyrics to Just Like Heaven.

Oh, I was so emo! :D

Excellent.

So glad to hear your trip was a success - though I wouldn't want to be anywhere near real life Jersey Boys knuckleheads.
