You see a lot of that if you hang out at this URL long enough.
Whatever, sometimes real life gets in the way of my lifetime ambition of being a prolific blogger ala Tucker Max.
That being said, it's been an awesomely fun couple of weeks. A good friend of mine ditched me for Jamboree (Lot's of heavy metal for you non-Chicagoans). Luckily, I managed to convince his ex-roommates ex-girlfriend who is the shit to go with me.
And I have never had so much fun.
It's the first time I've been to a show there without my best friend Shawn, so it did feel a little bit weird without him there to protect me. But as it stands, I had a pretty awesome time. It rained, and I either look really good when I'm wet, or guys at metal shows have absolutely no standards. (Both are equally plausible explainations) because holy shit. I was with a girl who is way hotter than I am, but for whatever reason every guy in the place was paying attention to me.
I try not to be one of those shallow girls who get their self esteem from other people, but I'd be lying if I didn't say that it felt damn good to be hit on a little bit. Not a lot bit, just a little.
There's something flattering about a security gaurd thinking you're hot enough to give you his jacket to keep you dry. Or a guy walking backwards through a crowd of people not giving a damn who he steps on so he can keep staring at you. It makes me want to call every ex boyfriend I've ever had and tell them to fuck themselves with a big stick.
It makes me excited for the rest of the summer. I just scored tickets to KoRn/Rob Zombie, Shinedown/Chevelle/Sevendust, and I'm working on Disturbed/Avenged Sevenfold tickets. Why? Because sometimes you just need to rock out, and I'm one of the lucky few who has a boss who understands the need to take a half day of work because the show starts at 2:30.
You know your boss kicks ass when instead of "This is our busy day, we need you here to manage the workflow!" his response to my taking half a day on a Friday is "AWESOME. Are there still tickets available?"
Yup. Life is good.
