Rock of Ages!!!! [Sunday, Nov 16th, 2008 @ 4:25pm]
[ mood | happy ]

Yesterday Jamie and I went to NYC on the bank bus trip. We left the Pine Street parking lot in Glens Falls at 6am and got to Bryant Park at about 10am. As we stepped off the bus it was pouring! Neither one of us brought an umbrella so we went to a nearby H&M and bought some. My perfectly straightened hair was now a wet mass of frizz. We shopped a little in the store and then left and walked around the city. It was barely sprinkling by this point so we didn't even need to use our $7 umbrellas very long. I took Jamie to Grand Central Terminal which was nearby and very beautiful inside. We got a bit to eat in the dining concourse and tried to figure out what to do until the show at 2pm.

American Idol Concert – Worcester, MA 8/9/08 [Wednesday, Aug 20th, 2008 @ 7:15pm]
[ mood | annoyed ]

Thursday night I looked for tickets online for the Worcester , MA show that Saturday. I had looked earlier as well, but all that was available then was the second balcony section. Amazingly, Thursday night I was able to buy a seat in Section 3, Row E, which I assumed was fifth row. Friday during my lunch I went up to Target and bought batteries made for digital cameras and a little notebook for autographs. I did all my cleaning Friday night and left the house around 9am Saturday morning. (Of course I woke up at 5:50am and couldn’t go back to sleep!) It took me about 3 hours to get there. Traffic wasn’t too bad until I got almost there, but it was only for a few miles that it was really backed up.

American Idol Concert – Albany , NY 8/6/08 [Tuesday, Aug 19th, 2008 @ 7:01pm]
I loved this season of American Idol. Of course, Season 4 will always be my favorite season because of Constantine , but Season 7 is a close second. From the top 24, I thought David Cook and Jason had something special. And apparently, America agreed with me, voting Jason top four and David the winner. Jason made me laugh every week and some weeks David Cook moved me to tears. So, I was not going to miss the tour when it came to town. I ordered tickets for myself, Sharee, Kayla and Hailey at 10am the first day of the pre-sale. We ended up with floor seats, but quite a ways back. I saw there were some other shows within a few hours driving distance and debated getting tickets to another show or two, but I decided against it, thinking one show would be enough.

Constantine is awesome. [Tuesday, Dec 11th, 2007 @ 6:38pm]
[ mood | happy ]

My friend Cheryl has been having some hard times lately. Her husband left her, (he was a jerk - verbally abusive to her and the kids, so it's not totally a bad thing) but she has five kids and is a stay at home mom. She is looking for a job, but it's hard because they only had one car and he has it most of the time. She has barely anything for the kids for Christmas, and to top it all off, her oldest daughter is pregnant. So, I stopped by her house Sunday, and she was crying. It really sucks that he left her now, right before Christmas. I wanted to do something to cheer her up, so I sent Constantine a message on myspace, telling him about her situation and I asked if he could leave her a comment to brighten her day. Cheryl loves Constantine almost as much as me, she goes with me to see him all the time. I didn't really expect him to respond, as I've sent him a message before and he didn't even read it. But, he did read it. And yesterday he left her a comment and said

"Stay strong. Stay Gold.

Happy Holidays.

C"

It did make her day and it made mine too.

Elliott Yamin Concert! [Saturday, Nov 24th, 2007 @ 11:14am]
[ mood | happy ]

I had a wonderful time last night with Cheryl at the Elliott Yamin concert! We got there early to get a bit to eat and in case we got lost. We found Revolution Hall fine - it was when I drove further to find someplace to eat, that I got "lost." It seems in Troy you can't just drive straight and then turn around and go back the way you came. It's like a maze full of one way streets and roads that go around in a circle. I am thankful there were no cops around when I went the wrong way on a one way street. We couldn't figure out why we didn't have a red light when the other way did. Oops.

I need a roommate [Sunday, Oct 28th, 2007 @ 3:48pm]
[ mood | blah ]

My roommate moved out this month and I am looking for a new one. It is very lonely out here by myself, plus Jill and Greg need someone else to pay the other half of the rent. I've had an ad on roommates.com for almost two months and have had very little luck. I had one guy come and look at it, but he has not gotten back to me and I don't think I want to live with a guy anyway. I hope I find someone soon. :(

Other than that, things are going pretty good. I'm taking a class at work - Law & Banking and my boss wants to send me to IRA school so that will be more responsibility. I went on vacation last month to Virginia Beach to visit Jill. We had a lot of fun. I'm going to NYC with Stacy and her sister November 17th with the bank's employee association and we are seeing a Christmas Extravaganza show. That should be fun. I might drive to Scranton, PA to see Constantine at some mall there November 24th, but I haven't quite made up my mind yet. I'm on vacation that week as well.

So I have this hobby.... [Sunday, Aug 19th, 2007 @ 10:52am]
[ mood | happy ]

I love this hobby. Saw my man again today, at the Swansea Mall in Massachusetts. Last night I left work at 3 and went to Becky (McLean) Ogden's appartment at Gordon College in S. Hamilton Mass. I got there about 7, and we hung out and had pizza that Matt made. Stephanie, Becky's friend from college was also there. I had met her before when I visited Becky in Newville a few years ago. Over dinner I told them about all my visits to see Constantine and they were facsinated, so I showed them part of my AI dvd that piyo sent me. I showed them I Can't Make You Love Me, My Funny Valentine, and BoRhap, and Black Wednesday. Also, a little bit of Elimidate. Steph was swooning during ICMYLM but she thought his looks to the camera were creepy in MFV. Matt thought he had good range. Becky thought he looked cuter w/ the shorter hair on Elimidate. Then we watched Just Like Heaven. I love that movie.

Yesterday morning (seems like so long ago!) we went to Rockport and had breakfast at "Flav's Red Skiff". It was a cute little diner. Then we walked down to the beach, which was beautiful. It was a really quaint little town. I took some pictures, if you want to see them in my pictures section.

Then I left and drove down to Swansea. I had to go over this awful bridge in Boston and had to pay $3 to drive on it. I hate bridges! I got there at 1:30 (when I thought the fashion show started, but it actually was just ending. I joined the clump of fans at the front of the stage and waited for the show to begin. Willow (the little girl I took a pic of w/ Constantine at Brel in Jan.) did the sound check. It was so cute... Then Constantine came out and sang Everybody Loves, Several Thousand, Girl Like You and Fading Into You. Made a comment about the models and said they were future Supermodels - especially the guys "just kidding." He had on his white shoes again, he loves those! Said his album is 9 on the indie charts, talked about the concert on the Bold and the Beautiful airing August 24th. Before the concert, someone gave me a button like I got last week (and forgot to wear!). I had it on when I went to the bathroom and some old lady asked me where I got it, so I gave it to her. I asked if she was a fan and she said, yes, she's been watching him on the BandB. So I gave her my pin and she was very happy! It was cute.

After the concert there was a meet and greet. Constantine personalized each person's CD and took pictures. The line was really long, probably took over an hour at least. He remembered me from last week! I met a lady in line, Debbie and was chatting with her. When she was getting her cd signed he asked if I was her daughter, we were like no, and then he was like, oh yeah, you were at the "Atlantic City" show, and I said, No Six Flags...and he was like, that's what I meant, Great Adventure and said that I got a shirt. I said, "I've been to see you a bunch of times" (I'm such a dork...why can't I say something more intelligent!) He signed my CD (I have more than one) "Samantha Rules... <3 Constantine". Debbie mentioned to him that she was seeing Elliot Yamin tonight and he said that he hung out w/him last night. I told Debbie I would email her my videos. She was really nice.

I got home about 7:30 last night. I didn't get lost at all! I'm so proud. I was in three states yesterday. (MA, RI and NY!)

It's been a while [Wednesday, Jun 27th, 2007 @ 7:28pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]

I do read my friend's page but it seems like I don't post much anymore. Sorry! Life has been going well. I like living on my own. I have a roommate now, her name is Marilyn. She's really nice and is rarely home at the same time as me, so when we are home together it's fun.

Last weekend my cousin Becky got married! It was a really nice wedding and I had a lot of fun dancing at the reception. They took swing lessons to dance at the wedding:

Sorry I didn't get better pics, but my camera's battery died! I was so mad.

new computer [Saturday, May 12th, 2007 @ 3:10pm]
[ mood | happy ]

My computer died last night (it just shut down in the middle of an email and I couldn't get it to reboot). It gave me an excuse to get a new computer! I got an iMac, which I am loving so far. It's so pretty!

Did I post here that I moved? Anyway, I moved out a couple weeks ago. I am renting Jill's house from her while they are in VA Beach and Japan. It's nice being on my own and renting from her makes it affordable.

Moving out! [Tuesday, Apr 10th, 2007 @ 7:34pm]
[ mood | happy ]

I've been feeling kind of down lately, because I'm sick of being 25 and still living at home. Then last night, my best friend Jill offered to rent her house in Corinth to me for a really affordable rent. Her husband is in the navy and they are relocated for a few years (VA now, then Japan). It's a three bedroom house with a dining room, basement with washer and dryer. It's really cute. I house sat for her there, so I already know what living there will be like. I'm not sure when I'm moving, but probably start moving the end of this month. Yay! I will need to get a roommate eventually once I have to start paying for heat this fall.

American Idol Season 6 [Saturday, Mar 10th, 2007 @ 1:47pm]
I like Gina, Jordin and Blake best this year. Lekesha is pretty good too. And Melinda can definately sing but I think her "You really like me?" act is getting a bit old.

Sanjaya and Hailey, what can I say? I just hope they don't make it to the top 10 because then they will be on the tour.

I thought the surprise was going to be about the songwriting competition, but the charity thing is pretty awesome too.

Do you believe in ghosts? [Sunday, Mar 4th, 2007 @ 3:26pm]
[ mood | curious ]

Last night we had my grandfather and his girlfriend Doris over for supper. Doris mentioned that one night she woke up from sleeping in the chair in their living room and saw a man standing in between her chair and Grandpa's chair. She blinked and he was gone. She didn't tell anyone because she thought they would think she was crazy. Then Aunt Lynne and Karen were staying there upstairs, and Karen saw the same man. She asked Doris if she knew their house was haunted. Neither one had talked to the other about it prior to this and they both saw the same man: a short man in his fifties with a big nose. I have never seen a ghost but I have been told stories like this before from other people.

I guess what I am wondering is, have you ever seen a ghost or known someone who has? If not, do you believe there are ghosts? If you don't believe in ghosts, why not?

A nice day [Saturday, Dec 30th, 2006 @ 9:45pm]
[ mood | happy ]

I had a nice day today with Jill and her family. Of course, the only day it has snowed all winter is the day I have to drive up her parent's driveway! I actually ended up walking up most of it. We had some yummy food and Jill got me some cute holiday kitchen stuff. I also got to see a lot of her mom's lovely pictures on her computer.

I am going to be housesitting for Jill and Greg next week while they are in Florida! I'm excited. I will be taking care of five cats and four chincillas! That will be interesting!

My picture is on Constantine's myspace! He added a slideshow of pictures with his fans. He's so awesome. He also sent me a post card yesterday!
