Lacuna Coil

I’ve been a fan of Lacuna Coil since 2001. Those were the days of Napster when I discovered the album Unleashed Memories. I just fell in love with their style. They’re playing Trees in Dallas and I’m going to see them FINALLY.

I’m so fucking excited, I can’t wait!! This is one of my bands… one of the ones I’ve wanted to see for such a long time. I’ve looked at past set lists and they’re playing more new stuff rather than the old albums, but that’s fine. I just want to see Cristina Scabbia & Andrea Ferro sing live on stage and possibly get a few photos. The boy and I have a date planned for that whole day. First, we’re going to see the giant eyeball. Yes, I said giant eyeball. It’s a 30-foot sculpture by an artist named Tony Tassert. It’s just one of those things you have to see if you’re in Dallas.

Then we might make a stop somewhere for a lunch and coffee… probably Caffe Strada since the reviews on Yelp say it’s a nice place, and close to the eye.

April updates

(A quick update, mostly a dump for relevant facebook statuses.)

– Seven weeks and still no couch, and no call about scheduling the delivery of our couch. What the fuck. We NEED our couch. The one we currently have is falling apart and trying to kill us with protruding wood and nails and staples.

– I am registered for my final semester before student teaching. I am scared. 🙁

– So I got the OK to pick out an elliptical! My diet is responsible for being fat, but I think a medication I’m on is making me gain even faster. It’s hard to tell because I don’t own a scale. I’ve felt so huge and bloated and my pants fit tighter. I’m also noticing my double chin even more. I’ve seen a few that double as a bike/elliptical, so I can get an upper body workout along with lower, because my upper body is huge. I’m very apple-shaped. I was originally going to get a bike but people are cruel and I don’t want to be the fat chick on the bike riding around the neighborhood. I’d just rather not have people watching me when I exercise. So yeah, I’m excited.

Wig is Fashion order

I realized that I don’t have a spare wig, so I had to buy a new one. This is my first purchase from Wig Is Fashion. I’m excited because it’s like nothing I’ve ever worn. I needed one that was inexpensive for days when I don’t have to look professional, which will extend the life of my black wig. Wearing my fancy human hair wig constantly will screw it up faster and I really don’t have the money to replace it every six months. Anyway… I got something a little colorful and more “me.” I also might trim off about 6 inches. That’s way too much hair for me. Pics to come as soon as I get it.

Maya Angelou

A Last love,
proper in conclusion,
should snip the wings
forbidding further flight.
But I, now,
reft of that confusion,
am lifted up
and speeding toward the light

-Recovery

 

There are some nights when
sleep plays coy,
aloof and disdainful.
And all the wiles
that I employ to win
its service to my side
are useless as wounded pride,
and much more painful.
