My mom bought Haley a Kitchenaid for Christmas! And we got it today! We got the cheapest model available, so it is a white one and not a cool colorful one or one with flames. It doesn't really matter what color it is, since a Kitchenaid in any color is awesomesauce...

but we made the Kitchenaid just a bit better... )

It's safe to say it is now the best kitchen appliance ever.

The Wilco concert was so AMAZING! It was better than the one in Colorado and omg it was awesome.

They opened with Remember the Mountain Bed and it brought tears to my eyes. The concert was at an outdoor amphitheatre at the gardens on campus, and they started when the sun was setting and it was just so incredible and beautiful. Also, I love Theologians live. I hope they play it again in Idaho because that song is just astounding.

Jeff was in a very good mood and he was so funny throughout the whole show. There's a hill outside the venue where you can sit and see the show for free, so Jeff talked to them for a bit and said, "Someone will be up there with a hat to collect money. We'll put a rattler in your boots! Are there rattlers up there?" "YES!" "Just kidding, we won't do that. But if you see a bobcat don't run. They'll chase you if you run. They're trained to chase. Not that they're trained, they're wild animals, but thats what they do, they chase. Don't run. If you see one, shake hands with it. Become friends with the bobcat."

Pat is just the best thing ever. He walks like Mick Jagger and is so adorable with his guitar. Glenn kept on smiling at him through the show and it was cute. Glenn is hot, Nels is amazing, Mike is adorable and John is awesome. Impossible Germany was hot. Everything about that song was hot. The guitar solo was hot and so were Jeff and Pat when they were playing. They were facing each other and standing really close while playing, and towards the end of the solo Pat started thrusting more and omg *dies*.

Jeff described the night as 'idyllic' and that was a perfect word to describe it. It was just a gorgeous concert and the crowd was a lot of fun.

Also, I slash every person in that band. Jeff and Glenn have an epic love, Jeff and Pat are adorable, Glenn and Pat are adorable and Jeff adores Nels. I love that band so much!

And on Wednesday, I get to see them again! WOOOOO!
The guy who took the picture of me and Haley with Jeff Tweedy emailed it to Haley! So yay! That guy didn't turn out to be an asshole!

Damn, I look classy.

What do you guys think of this icon?


Do you think the text works? Is the picture to small and squished? I love that picture, and I am having a bitch of a time making it into an icon.
I got a B+ in American Institutions, and I am pleased with this grade. So far this term I have a 3.58 GPA, and I just have to wait for my Gender and Social Change grade to be posted, and unless I totally bombed my final, I am going to get an A in that class, which means I'll maintain a GPA above 3.5 and I'll get to stay in the Honors College. I am very pleased. :D

So, the concert. The concert was in a movie theater, a large movie theater, but it was a movie theater so as concert venues go it was pretty small. We were in the balcony and we were in seats with absolutely no leg room, it sucked. But the view of the stage was fantastic and the acoustics in the venue were astounding. Retribution Gospel Choir opened, and I had never listened to them before, they were pretty good.

Wilco was incredible. They sounded so beautiful and it was just astounding. Nothing will beat the Arcade Fire concert I went to in amazingness, but this was a very close second. It was weird sitting down the whole time, I don't remember the last concert I went to where I wasn't standing the whole time and wasn't pretty close to the stage. They played all of my favorite songs in a row (Shot In The Arm, Via Chicago, California Stars), and the only songs that they didn't play that I wanted to hear were Radio Cure, Nothing'severgonnastandinmyway (Again), and Muzzle of Bees. But I wasn't disappointed because the concert was soooo fucking good. Also, they are going to be in Salt Lake on August 18th, so hopefully they'll play those songs then. :D

We parked behind the theater and we noticed the tour bus, so we decided that we'd wait and see if we could meet the band after the show. We decided to get out there before the encores so we wouldn't get caught in the crowd and we waited in the rain for 30 minutes. Then when the show was over the security guys said that the band wouldn't be signing stuff outside of the bus, but they would go to the after party across the street. So we went across the street and discovered that the after party was 21+, so I couldn't go in. We sat outside and talked for awhile and Jaime went back to the venue to see if they came out, and then ran back to us to tell us they were out of the tour bus talking to fans and signing stuff.

I literally ran back to the theater. When we got over there we met Glenn (the drummer) Mike (the piano player) and Jeff Tweedy (the awesome). We talked to Glenn for awhile and he is just so incredibly adorable, awesome and approachable. Haley and Jaime talked to him more than I did, but eventually he noticed me standing there smiling like a fool and he shook my hand. I mentioned that they played my favorite songs in a row and he was pleasantly surprised and said, "And then it all went down hill from there huh?" "OH no no no!" XD He's so cute and awesome.

I didn't really talk to Mike, I kind of just pushed my way towards him and asked if he would sign my ticket. It was kind of rude of me because he was talking to someone at the time, but I tend to be rude if I'm not thinking clearly, and I really wasn't at the time, so woops!

We got Jeff to sign our tickets and then we backed away so other people could get their stuff signed. Haley decided to go back up to him and she asked if she could shake his hand and he said sure. Then she told him how much the band means to her, and he said that was sweet of her, and she mentioned her WILCO license plate. Then he went into the photo pose with his arm around her shoulder and she said that we didn't have a camera, and then a guy said he'd take the picture and email it to her. So I got in the picture and the guy couldn't take the photo because flash on the camera wasn't working. So Haley and I had our arms around Jeff Tweedy for several seconds while the guy was getting the flash to work. :D Eventually he got the camera to work properly and hopefully he'll email the picture to Haley.

After that Haley and I thanked him and calmly walked a few feet away, and proceeded to squee like a couple of crazy fangirls. XD

Man, last night was just so kick ass. :D (I really need a Wilco icon)

Oh, I'm watching TCR right now and it reminded me of something, Tweedy wasn't wearing his wrist strong bracelet!
Holy shit I am so exhausted. Not as exhausted as Haley though, since she did all the driving. The drive home from Grand Junction was supposed to be 4-6 hours. It was 8 for me, 9 for Haley and Jaime because they have an hour drive home after they drop me off. Why the additional 4 hours? Well, we missed a turn off on I-70, so then we went north and decided to get to Kamas through Duchesne, when we got to Duchesne the road we needed to go on was closed. So we turned around. That means, we made an unnecessary 140 mile detour. There are some positives, I saw a lot of Utah that I've never seen before. I have provided a helpful map:

I wanted to make a post about the incredibly amazing concert, but I'm really tired. So I'm going to make that post in a little while. But, I have one thing to say: I MET THREE MEMBERS OF THE BAND, INCLUDING JEFF FUCKING TWEEDY!
