the calm before the storm

Life has been pretty quiet 'round these parts.  I have lots of fun stuff coming up over the next few months so it's like the calm before the storm. 

1)  Polaris this weekend!!  Gareth David-Lloyd *squee*  Looking forward to meeting grasshopper64and hopefully serefina743plus just being around TW fangirls, how can it not be fun?!  And to close out the weekend, one last taping of Maria to finish off my John Barrowman stalking.   Small confession: between watching TW and DW, the Maria show, the Pride parade & other various promotions, I'm actually getting a little tired of seeing John everywhere.  Who would've thought I would experience John overload?!  How do you Brits do it?

2) 2 weeks from today, I'll be sitting in a plane heading to the motherland.  I haven't even started to think about packing, ack!  The main things are done (passport updated, vaccine shots done) and I don't have to worry about exchanging money (the perks of having family over there) so it's just all the little stuff.  If any of y'all want a souvenir or a postcard from Taiwan or Tokyo let me know! 

August will be quiet which is good cause September is gonna be insane.  Awesome but insane.

3)  Labour Day long weekend, bauersgirland I are off to Las Vegas for 5 days!  She's never been and I've been once but years ago.  Can I just say that she is the best trip planner ever!  She's been doing all this research while I've been... well, encouraging her, lol.

4)  Celebrity stalking at TIFF!!  Unfortunately, faninohiocan't join us this year but that's OK cause 2 weeks later...

5)  EyeCon!!  Yes, I have succumbed.  Can't wait to see the gals again and that Jared guy!!  The trip was in jeopardy for a while there cause there are no direct flights between Orlando & Toronto on a Sunday evening.  WTF airlines.  But my bosses are very understanding and I was able to take the Monday off as well, yay!!  Plus, flights are cheaper on the Monday so double yay!!!!

6)  There's also my brother's wedding sandwiched between TIFF and EyeCon.  Still need to buy a dress and shoes.  Comfortable shoes cause I'll be running around all day making sure everything goes as planned.

So, yea, that's my schedule for the next 3 months.  I'm exhausted just looking at it!  And I don't even want to think how much all this is gonna cost me but I don't care.  I'll just have to go into massive saving mode and not spend money unnecessarily like buying lunch almost everyday.

Something for all you Twilight peeps.  Have you seen the EW cover?  EW is correct.  Robert Pattinson is such a cutie but that cover is AWFUL.

Reality show update:  

* Bollywood on SYTYCD, w00t!!  That was awesome.  I found it surprising that neither of them knew what Bollywood was but I guess it's just not as common knowledge as it is here.  This season has been lacklustre compared to S2 & 3 but Joshua & Katee are definitely my faves.  So nice to see Pasha & Anya again!

* The Top10 has been chosen for Canadian Idol and we've got 8 guys & 2 girls.  LOL Canada.  When it was revealed that they were getting rid of the gender split (thank goodness), this was exactly what I predicated.  I like how our little show no longer follows AI's format and paves their own way.  I haven't been following the show religiously yet but so far I'm liking Theo, Mookie & Sebastian.

We should definitely meet up! Dinner Friday or lunch Saturday? You're a local, so you'll know of good places to eat, I'd assume. Otherwise we'll be relying on Beth's GPS to find someplace for food.

How can you be tired of John? He's fabulous! I could watch him every day.

Oh, and since you've already been, how early should we get to the studio for Maria? My confirmation says be there between 5:30 and 6, but I'd assume earlier than that.

LOVE the icon! It's so perfect.

This weekend is booked up with Polaris including Friday night's Blast Off party -- aren't you guys going? If not, we could still do dinner Friday night but it'll have to be early cause I'm planning on being at the Con by 8pm. Or there's Saturday night as well.

I know! It's a very strange feeling. I'm sure when he leaves, I'll be kicking myself for not going to every.single.taping and such.

Arriving between 5:30-6:00 is fine, that's when I usually get there. There's a lot of waiting in line cause they let the VIP family & friends in first and the whole process takes longer cause the studio is on the top floor. Yes, there will be a huge lineup but it's not a matter of being first in line. You are told where to sit and the way the studio is set up, you get a good view of John from anywhere except for the section directly in front of the judges.

No, we're not going to the Blast Off party. That was for the ticket level one above ours. I think we're Venus, or something like that, I can't keep them all straight. Since it's 8 hours drive from Chicago, and my train will probably be late, we weren't sure what time we'd be getting in, so we didn't level up.

I'm not sure what we're doing Friday night, except maybe going to a couple panels, and karaoke. I LOVE karaoke.

I would love to see John Barrowman once, and you've seen him so many times that you're tired of him! Lucky you!

Man, September sounds massively busy, but I am so glad you're going to EyeCon!!! We are going to have such an awesome time!!

Well, there's still ComicCon... :) Yea, it sounds as if I'm complaining but I'm not really. But seriously, in the UK, he's got TW, DW, panto, concert tour, radio play, conventions, promoting his autobiography, he's done 3 talent shows, he's the host of a kid's game show... the man is EVERYWHERE!

EEEEEE for EyeCon!! Can't wait!

I'm so glad you're getting to go to EyeCon! I hope you girls have tons of fun (but take an appropriate amount of time out to miss me desperately, obviously).

I saw that EW cover yesterday. What the hell did they do to that poor boy? Really, that's even worse than the movie poster which is pretty damn bad too.

You're not going? The missing of you has already begun. :(

Why did they do that? That's not how he's gonna look in the movie right? He didn't look like that in the trailer. Seriously, if they mess with the pretty, I may have skip the movie. Or at least try ;)

No, sadly, I can't make it. I just don't have the vacation time. But be sure to take lots of pictures and stalk lots of pretty boys for me!

None of the other pictures/clips I've seen have looked like that. I mean, he's supposed to be pale (what with the whole being dead thing), but that's a little absurd!!

Bummer. But, hee, it's like we have to rotate because if we were all there in one place at one time, there'd be too much awesome and the world would implode.

ahahha. Hee. The idea of getting tired of barrowman cracks me up, hee!

I was thinking of you! Lukas was performing there last night!

And hey, have you gotten your picture yet?

There is something clearly wrong with me cause how can one get tired of Barrowman?

No picture yet but it should be soon. I don't know what's up with our post cause a friend of mine sent me something from Dallas and it took 3 weeks!

Stuff I sent to Vancouver took nearly two weeks, so I'm not panicking yet. But if it gets lost, I have another one-- never fear!

I'm mixed about the "Twilight" poster--the actress playing Bella looks pretty good (I'm used to seeing her as a blonde) but what the hell is up with Edward? He sure as hell didn't look like that in my imagination! I haven't seen Robert in a movie (yes, I have yet to watch all the HP's) so I really don't know what I am supposed to be missing.

Have you seen the teaser trailer on YouTube? He looks completely different than that hideous EW cover. If you scroll up, jerseybelle used her Edward Cullen icons with RP :)

Hee! "The motherland" makes it sound to me like you're going to Russia... :)

Ahhhh, Mother Russia. Gotta visit her too some day. :)

Yay- see you in September! Have lots of fun on the trip and the wedding. Sounds like a blast. Sleep when you're dead, right?

Can I has September now plz? Sleep when you're dead and what's the point of making money if you don't spend it, right?

Sounds like good times. :D

I hate that EW cover. At least the movie looks better!

Be prepared to be spammed with many pictures! =D

Why did EW do that?!?!! This is gonna be the first look at the movie for a lot of people and if it was me, I would be totally turned off!

It was my first look at the movie and yep, it turned me off! hehe

John Barrowman was in my dream last night, he's everywhere!! Go away!! I'm sick of you!! LOL I dreamt that I was walking home from work and saw him walking down University Ave. with his manager. I think he was drunk b/c he kept asking where Luuuuundas St. was, he mean Dundas hehe

Hope you're having fun at Polaris, see ya tomorrow!
