it's been a week since my last post. i'm still broken hearted, but slowly moving on. (my goal is to NOT cry while typing this! haha). it was a really tough week. the first few days without poontz were soooo tough. the house seemed so quiet and boring. yes, we still have our other cat, dobsie, but it still seemed empty in here. i cried, hysterically at some points, for 4 days straight. on the 5th day i only cried a bit, and it's gotten better every day since. on days 3 and 4 i was telling henry "i'm never gonna get over this! i think i'll still be crying 5 years from now". i'm glad we've had each other this week. we've cried together, we've been angry together, we've comforted each other, and now we're healing together. i still don't think i'll ever get over losing our boy, but now i'm hopeful that at least i won't be crying every.day.for.ev.er. (i say that as i'm tearing up right now! haha here we go again...). dobsie is settling into his role as an only child. he obviously misses his brother, and is confused, but he's soaking up all the extra attention he's getting!!! fyi, he's sitting on the couch next to me right now... totally chowing down on his butthole. nice, dobsie, really nice. i've had lots of people asking me if we'll get another cat. i dunno right now (especially after sharing a couch with a butt munching monster). i will never, ever live without at least 1 pet, but i don't think we'll get a cat anytime soon... not this week anyway ;)
hmmm, what else....
as i'm sure you've heard by now... the casey anthony verdict is in. i'm not gonna get into that, cause i'm soooooooooooooooooooooo angry about it. all i'll say is that i watched that trial every day, i was obsessed with it. after every thing i heard from every person on the stand, i CANNOT believe that girl got away with it!!! ridiculous! now her jailhouse letters are being released and she mentions wanting to have more kids, and possibly adopting. good luck! i don't know what kind of adoption agency is gonna trust you with another baby. sickening.
k, last thing....
the new incubus album comes out on tuesday! it's called 'if not now, when?'. it's gonna be soooo good! i can't wait! the whole album has been leaked, but being the dedicated fan that i am, i haven't illegally listened to it. i've only heard the songs they've released (and played live on an online streaming concert). i've heard 4 songs, and i love them all. it's much more 'chill' than past incubus records. if you listen to the radio often you may have already heard 'adolescents' and 'promises, promises'. i've watched some recent live videos and brandon sounds better than ever. if you're looking for some new music you should REALLY go pick the album up on tuesday. here's my new favorite song:
not just a great song, i think it's a super cool video too!
i love it. all of it.
see the doberman in the video? wanna hear a story about her?
her name is ginger and she belongs to chris kilmore (the dj in incubus). when henry and i saw incubus in san diego (july 2009) we had vip tix... no, not backstage vip tix, but the "vip" tix that cricket amphitheatre offers you. (hmm, i feel like i might've told this story on this blog before. i'm having deja vu. if so, skip this story, sorry). anyway, with our 'vip' tix we were allowed to go to an outdoor lounge area with a bar and refreshments, etc. our vip lounge area was right next to the REAL vip backstage area (only separated by a fence), where the bands buses park & the band hangs out. nobody in our lounge area noticed that... except me. i was looking through the fence and said "henry, that's kilmore right there! with the dog". he said "are you sure?", then he looked and said "haha yep, you're right!". we kinda stared for awhile, luckily he didn't see us. right then 2 drunk guys in our lounge area came over to our fence and said something along the lines of "HOLY SH*T!!! IT'S KILMORE RIGHT THERE!!!! NO WAY DUDE. HOLY SH*T!"...then, like an idiot, one of 'em screams "HEYYYY KILMOOOOOOOORE!!! WHAT UP DUDE?!" i quickly shushed the 2 guys and said "don't make a big scene, you're gonna get everyone rushing over here. be quiet!". kilmore (and ginger) turned, saw us (and the 2 drunk idiots) and ran up to the fence to say hi. the drunks were frantically looking for a pen to have him sign their ticket stubs. "sh*t, we don't have a pen. bro, what the f*ck are we gonna do. sh*t go ask someone quick! hold my beer." i kindly offered my favorite (at the time) pen right as kilmore got to the fence. the drunks got their tix signed and kissed kilmore's a$$ for a bit. i (unlike any other fan in the world) didn't get an autograph, didn't kiss his butt, didn't say "omg, hook me up with brandon boyd!", didn't say "ahhhh, you're like totally my favorite band in pretty much the entire world!". i barely said hi and i immediately crouched down to hang out with/chat with ginger... yep, the dog! a member of 1 of my top 2 fave bands is inches in front of me, and i ignore him to love on his dog. what's wrong with me?! haha kilmore (and ginger) were both very sweet. it was super nice of them to come say hi to us. he thanked us for coming to the show told us he hoped we'd have a good time and walked away. the drunks were stoked with their autographs and walked away. about 10 minutes later they walked back up to henry and i, and 1 of them said "here's your pen back. thank you sooooooooo much". they had now redeemed themselves. i thought it was very nice of them to make a point to return my pen AND thank me. do i need to apologize for calling them drunk idiots on here?! nahhhh. :) i still have that pen, it's now called my 'kilmore pen' ;) haha by the way, the concert was amazing!!!!!
wow, it's 11pm. i better get in bed.
