The whole weekend I was working on my art & on Monday I was studying for my midterm (English)...the rest of the days I was just too lazy to blog. But, be happy that I'm blogging a bloggy now.
My Zune headphones got screwed up...have no idea how...the music sounds like it's in a tunnel with static. I think I'm gonna go cry. My love has broke. On the bright side, my Zune isn't broken.
Had a power outage on Monday morning.That was fun.
Well...now I can say...HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY GERARD!!! Now he's 30 & 4 days old.
Check out Shiny Toy Guns' You Are The One. Yummy Song.
Did you hear that Robert Smith is working with Ashlee Simpson? What?! Now that's disturbing news!
Here's some pictures of what I was working on for art.
Oh, how I so miss my beloved headphones. They were so good to me...all those memories we shared together...so sad. At the moment I'm using the headphones of my CD player. I'll either order new ones from the Zune website or go buy some other kind at Best Buy. I think I'll throw a funeral for them and bury it in the backyard.
Disturbia comes out today. You should go see it.
Aren't you excited for the upcoming albums?!
Nine Inch Nails
The Smashing Pumpkins (Zeitgeist)
John Lennon Tribute (which Green Day will be on! By the way, Billie Joe, his family, & some of the Green Day team was in New Orleans helping out other families that were hit with hurricane katrina. Check out the pictures http://www.greendayauthority.com/Picture_Vault/thumbnails.php?album=148 )
Linkin Park (I have to admit that their single is incredible)
Tim Armstrong (Into Action!)
Is it wrong to say that I'm fucking sick of The Red Hot Chili Peppers? I really am. Ican't hear another song from them.
Wanna see my beautiful college folders?!
Forgot to say that my mum has just recently became obsesssssssed with Miss Murder. Where has she been?
Ok, so here's my vegas musings (I knew you've been waiting for this momet to come!). I survived on vegan cookies (Alternative Baking Company Cookies) & muffins. It's basically what kept me alive during out trip (you should keep that in mind if you're going on a "family bonding" vacation & are vegan). Enjoy...
4:58 AM...It's the day of our departure and I'm actually awake. I woke up at 2:00 a.m. and I couldn't fall back to sleep. What is this? I am not a morning person. Maybe it's the fact that I get to eat all the yummy yummy vegan food I made for breakfast yesterday for today that I spent all day making (woo! so many "days" ha ha ha).
I have no make up on my face, so I must look like a monster that fell and hit it's fave in mud that was full of poop. The new Tiger Army song with Davey Havok is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. (Forever Fades Away)! I just need to get use to it playing it on KROQ. It's really weird to hear them on KROQ. KROQ?! Tiger Army?! Leaves a bad taste in your mouth, doesn't? I know they've had new songs up on their myspace for a while, but I haven't been on since...I think...last August, so I have no idea what the hell is happening in that world. I count on their website, wikipedia, and friends for updations. Poo. Allergies have started once more. Allergies should be made illegal! Aww...I haven't heard this song forever...My Name Is Trouble (Nightmare Of You). I really overplayed their CD, so I don't listen to it anymore. I had two muffins and two waffles...still hungry. Too early for this. Way too early. I'm actually writing this with the light of my cell phone because it's so freaking dark. I hate changing tiimes! It's supposed to be 4:13 in the morning, but the stupid Daylight crap makes it 5:13. Ha. My writing looks funny, it's all small, stick-like (asian, baby!), and wobbly. Ok, I'll write later...my grumpyness is creeping up on me because my dad's playing his persian radio louder than the music I'm listening to. Grrr....
6:36 AM...I can see the light! The sun has risen and I'm happy happy happy.
9:40 AM...Made it to Vegas and I drove rest of the way, so that meant listen to my music at my volume! Shopping time!
11:19 AM...Time to check into the hotel...I'm hungry. Wonder where we're going to eat? Chicken sounds fabbity fab! Ha ha ha. Ok, that was just plain nasty. MGM keeps lions behind glass walls. ANIMAL CRUELTY!!!! My mum didn't let me throw a riot because she was scared that I was going to be lead out by security. Man, this is going to be fun...Rainforest Cafe sells a necklace made of both leather and bones...What the hell is wrong with this world?! Want to protect the rain forest? Well, protect the freaking animals, you mother fuckers!!!
6:55 PM...Just finished Caesar's Palace,
Bally's, and Paris. Yes, my dear friends...I WENT TO PARIS!!!
Met some great kids there.
Saw Green Day's autographed guitars and drum thingy.
That made my day! Then a lady was like "Uh, sorry you can't take any pictures." Too bad, woman! Got some Led Zep, Queen, Lord Of The Rings, and Depp.
Go me! Now it's off to dinner. My dad gave me his words of wisdom (that I never seem to hear) "you should eat fish." Yeah let me eat a fishy that was once happy swimming in the ocean and then was captures, chopped up, and served to eat. Yeah, sure I'll have some. Don't get me started! By the way at Caesar's I got fabulous candy at FAO Shwartz.
Oh, found cute skinny jeans at Anthropologie. I love the dressing rooms (so earthy)
9:35 AM...I'm absolutely exhausted. I hate sleeping other places than my bed. I'm really fussy about that. Dinner was horrid. All I had was salad, green beans, and rice. Bleh. I WANT FOOD! Why don't they have a vegan restaurant anywhere? Forgot to mention...I won $101.40!!! My dad gave me $5 to play and ya...I played a penny slot. Much coolies to that. So have some money in my wallet now. My mum's gonna take me to Sephora so I can buy come Urban Decay & Hard Candy makeup. Las Vegas, I have concluded, is a very dirty place. I really don't like it. I think I found my love in the Whole Foods here...at least they have vegan food!
1:00 PM...Finished the Bellagio and the Venecian.
Absolutely beautiful! In the elevator back to the parking lot, a guy standing next to me was reading a book...Wine Tasting For Dummies. Hahahahhahahahahahahahaha. Tried to take a picture of him, but he was walking way too fast. Jerk.
At the Bellagio they had this spiffy garden area..but they had butterflies behind glass windows and dead ones up for display. How do they capture butterflies and just let them die in a display?! ANIMAL CRUELTY!!! Much anger I possessed.
Where are we going now? Have no idea. Sephora was a blast!
1:13 PM...Dirty Mouth? Clean it up with Orbit gum!
4:22 PM...Much fun fun fun at the Rio! Got meself a necklace, saw a show, and the Chippendales (hahahahahahaha). A Fabio man was there. Oh I never laughed so hard. Time to go play the slots!
6:47 PM...Lost $20 and my dad lost $20 as well. Tear tear. best friend called me...put me on hold forever, so I hung up. No call back. Oh well. Going to New York New York, Excalibur, and the Luxor...then migrate over to Fremont...wee...
8:43 PM...My back hurts
8:22 AM...Good Morning (yes it is!)!!!! Day to head back home...finally! I got fat in two days. Disgusting. Yesterday was the premier of Sweet Sacrifice. You lucky bastards who saw it. Wonder if Jade updated his blog? I don't think there's any new tour diary photos because their next concert is not till next Saturday. It was pretty hard to go without a computer for three days (including today). Las Vegas has really changed since the last time I came, which was like 4 or 5 years ago. There's nothing spectacular here...just bright lights and small city. By the way I'm inlove with the new powder I bought at Sephora. It's called Sue Devitt. And it's written on the side "Against Animal Testing" Happy happy! Their website is http://www.suedevittstudio.com Today we finished up Las Vegas by checking out the Coca Cola and M&M stores...then head home. On the way, we'll stop off at the outlets (yay!) and I can catch up on some english reading...midterm on tuesday. Great. I still need to draw a chair and four crosshatching sketches for art....all due on monday. Shiza!!!
8:38 AM...Try a Larabar. Yummy vegan bars. My favorite is the cherry pie bar...oh and the ginger on e is good too. The ingredients for the cherry one is: dates, almonds, and unsweetened cherries. Yeah, that's it! That's the way food should be made!http://www.larabar.com
9:51 AM...Made a detour to Ethel M's...nothing vegan there
9:58 AM...Well thought out twinkles
(X marks the spot...you really find weird stuff on the floor)
1:04 PM...It's fucking hot as hell...and yet it's only 86 degrees...weird. Stopped by Caesar's Palace and MGM again for my dad to play some slots. My mom and I had some fun at FAO Shwarts again.
(went to the M&Ms store...nope no vegan chocolate, but a fun tunnel!)
1:14 PM...My Dad just bet me $1000 that I'm going to break (being vegan) in two years. Hahahahahahaha better just to pay me now.
3:27 PM...Forgot to mention it's Rockabilly weekend at the Gold Coast. It's pretty awesome to see all these people in their 50's outfits and swell tattoos. Ya. Bye Las Vegas, I won't miss you. Outlet shopping time!
5:25 PM...Phew! I just knocked out for one and a half hours...just passed ZZyzx Road. What the hell is up with that name? I loooooooooooooooooove this song...Only of You (Green Day), it's so old school.
5:37 PM....For Reason's Unknown...Have you ever heard anyone say "I hate The Killers"? Of course not, that would be like...not liking chocolate soymilk. I remember when I discovered them and people were like "Who?" And then all of a sudden..."I love The Killers!" Don't you hate when that happens? But, I shouldn't be one of those people...they get uber annoying and you just want to slap the shit out of them.
6:04 PM...Joga (on of my favorite songs from Bjork)
6:52 PM...Bought a shirt at Vans
7:18 PM...Bought a jacket from Old Navy
11:56 PM...Stopped by my aunt's house, she cooked us dinner. Yummy yummy. Then we watched (my mom, aunt, and I) Cry Wolf. First time I watched it/ It was ok. The main actor was pretty cute. Jon Bon Jovi was in it. Random, no? The ending should have been longer, like the chick should have done some crazy crap...like shot the guy and turned into a walrus. Then that would have been interesting. Dear God! My mom is playing Keith Urban! GET ME OUT OF THIS CAR!
12:48 AM...Hom Sweet Home! Never been happier than to see my glorious room, comfy bed, and to hear that it's KROQ's block party weekend.
Woo Hoo! Let's clebrate like there's no tomorrow! I just realized what's on the shirt I bought...a face of a chick and then two girls on the inside...like stripper outlines. I liked it because it was black and had stars on it...whatever. It's still cute.
And my powder for you to see (my cookie in the back)
Ok my people...that was my road trip to Vegas...hope you had as much fun as much fun as I did. Can't wait till I can start my usuall blogs again! Time to sleep!
