Baby I'm just soggy from the chemo

2007-01-17 - 11:04 p.m.

Reading: Kerrang
Listening to: Cancer – My Chemical Romance
Wishing: My eyes would stop stinging

Hoorah, I am being paid more than I thought this Friday, meaning there is a slim hope of me being able to afford the many concerts, albums, haircuts, magazines and clothing that I have to purchase.

I have more possible gigs to add to my list:
- Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
- Paramore
- Hellogoodbye

Are all rumoured to be touring Australia. All we need now is Cute Is What We Aimed For and The Academy Is… and then I will be happy.

Poor, but happy.

Oh, and Jack’s Mannequin natch.

I hate my neighbours. They keep me awake with therapy sessions in the backyard until 11:30, which I could hear every word of. Then they wake me up absurdly early with screeching children. And so, in revenge, I put My Chemical Romance’s Black Parade on as loud as possible. Not only were they forced to listen to killer lyrics like “Drop the dagger and lather the blood on your hands, Romeo” and “The doctors and the nurses they adore me so But it's really quite alarming cause I'm such an awful fuck” [just the thing they want their little kids exposed to] but also my absolutely atrocious wailing along to Cancer, which I do at the top of my lungs. I sing to all the songs, but I am particularly loud and awful with Cancer.

But hey, I don’t complain about their noisiness late at night or their screaming brats, so they can deal with a little My Chem thankyou.

Check this out:
“Look, we’ve all been there…a painful breakup, a tough family situation, a harrowing time in political history, a bad hair day, etc. And when times get tough, the tough grab an eyeliner pencil, put on a studded belt, and crank up the pop punk music. It’s simply human nature… I’ll be honest with you–none of the music I write about on here is going to end world hunger, or create peace in the Middle East. Some of the music might not even be very good. But the most important thing about this stuff is that it makes people happy."
That is from a blog I read called somorescene and I laughed when I read that. Too true. And this is coming from an adult woman with a real career.

Ah, must go, Tux is being petulant and chewing on things he isn’t supposed to, such as the USB cord for the camera and my diary.
