Mood: cold.
A weekend of 70 degree temperatures and it's like everyone forgets how to drive in the snow...I saw probably 10 cars in various ditches on my way home from the game tonight. People are stupid, if it's snowing slow down, even if it doesn't look icy it probably is, learn how to drive.

I feel like no matter what we do in the last couple weeks as interns, we're always doing something wrong...but it's nothing that we haven't been doing all season long, since last freaking October. Nothing tonight was necessarily my fault but I still took offense to some of the things the assistant GM said to some of the other interns. I don't know if he's just cracking down because it's playoff time or what...

Speaking of cracking, I totally slammed my back on the info booth door tonight at the game, Jason thought I hit my head the sound was so loud, lol.

So I'm driving to Chicago late tomorrow afternoon (lets hope the snow dies down or it'll take me longer than the already long 2 and a half hours) to see Sarah. Our parents have abandoned us to be in a much warmer climate, like an island south of the equator, lol...so we decided we might as well be abandoned together. And hello, catered Easter dinner meal courtesy of her roommate Lindsay's parents who couldn't make it out from Ann Arbor...my parents can't make it to see me and all I get is a phone call, her parents can't make it and she gets a catered meal, I won't lie I'm jealous...but it's not surprising I mean her parents also pay for their amazing condo in Wrigleyville.

We might be going to the Kentucky Derby, we always say we'll go and we never do, but this year it seems like everyones schedules sync up, so we have a good chance of going...we'll be in the infield but still, it'll be cheap, it helps that we know someone that lives a mile away from Churchill Downs...but hey maybe Lindsay's parents will pay for us to go.

I may or may not have paid 9 bucks for a lipstick that I wasn't even sure I liked today. Impulse purchase, but I bought it assuming that the color would be duller than that of what it showed it would be, that's usually the way it is...but the red was really red, and I'm way too fair skinned to be wearing bright red lipstick.

I saw JC was wearing a scarf tonight when visiting this chicks house on Kiis FM, he's wearing a scarf in 60 degree weather? He'll be frozen in Chicago if he's cold in that kind of weather, lol.

What's up with the weather, of course I went shopping this past weekend because it was in the 70's and I wanted to buy some new spring/summer clothes. Before I could even wear anything I bought it decided to snow again, lovely. Almost 80 three days ago and now snow on the ground, the lake effect snow is back too, we're under a warning. The Tigers game today was actually snowed out...

My great Aunt passed away last week, I was intending to take the weekend off, since it was one of the few weekends we had no games to intern, but with my parents going to St. Maarten I figured that it would be appropriate for my brother and I to represent our family at the funeral. But it turned into more of an ordeal then I anticipated. My Mom is the one that usually takes care of all the Grandma "stuff" when it comes to taking her around and helping her out with things, but with her out of town I became the go to person, which I don't mind doing. So I had to help her pick out flower arrangements, and went shopping with her to help her pick out shoes and a new outfit to wear to the funeral. She was really taking the death hard so of course I felt awful about leaving her alone the day before the viewing so I went out to dinner with her and then made her come over to watch movies with me. Luckily the rest of the family made their way into town the next day so they stayed with her and I was let off the hook.

With the parents on vacation until Saturday I watched George last weekend, he's such a handful. I love him to death but I was so ready to drop him off at Camp Bow Wow on Sunday morning so I could actually sleep without him jumping on my bed, knawing on my arm or leg...I know he just wants attention but he's too needy for me. I've turned very much into a cat person, a lot less to handle. I still love him though.

George says "hi!"

Subject:New JC song - You Ruined Me
Time:1:48 am.
Thanks to nsync4jrt at JJB for the mp3.

So here's the full version of You Ruined Me for those that actually have lives and have to be up in the morning, lol.

http://www.sendspace.com/file/ssauwt

Summary of the interview:

-He's down to two potential titles: "Kate" or "The Story of Kate"
-The idea for "You Ruined Me" came together quickly and it's about being hit by love so unexpectadly that it's like being hit by a truck.
-He really likes the song because he's "really belting it out"
-Dallas called in and told a story (with JC) about some girls in the studio with them jamming out to a song that will be on the album "Love Again..." JC says it's something that should definitely be posted on the internet (hmmm...Dallas shouldn't have a problem with that)
-He likes cheese
-He maybe believes in alien's
-His embarrassing naked story was the story he told during the Schizo promotion, about his friend pulling down his pants...he said that he had a huge crush on this girl and it was the first time he was going to ask her out. JC said if she hadn't said yes he might be scarred for life right now, and JoJo said that maybe he got the date because she saw what he was packing, lol.
-Most cash he's had in his hand at once a couple hundred thousand dollars (holy shit)
-Most famous person in his blackberry, probably Justin (he mentioned also that he just watched Justin's SNL episode again today)
-Mentioned, kind of casually and not officially, that he was looking to hit the road in May or June.
-No definite release date for the album.

There's also a really cute video of JC and JoJo at Babyface's studio and JC trying to coach JoJo in the studio on a track. JC looks buff...it's at kiisfm.com if you want to see it.

See, where did these muscles come from?

*pets LJ* I've neglected you.

This past week has been super busy. The green ice game went really well, my parents came to the game...I of course wanted to have the extra hour before the game started (after doors opened) to take that time to show them around so I requested to be on promotions. It was stupid of me to think that I wouldn't be running my ass off on a St. Patrick's day sell out. So I got stuck taking pictures before the game and having to be on the ice during intermissions. Just a long, busy game that included three fights, none of which I wanted to watch. It's amazing how much you don't want to see fights when you know the guys that are doing the fighting. One of my favorite Red Wings moments was the Avs/Detroit brawl, but I didn't know any of those guys personally...it makes me cringe whenever any of your players fight.

I'm supposed to go to Chicago next weekend, but I think I'm going to have to go to my parents house instead to dog sit for a few days before I have to take him to Camp Bow Wow while my parents are in St. Maarten.

JC interview on Monday sounds good, hopefully some useful information and a full version of You Ruined Me will show up.

Leo and Kate are doing a movie together, I may squee a lot when it comes out because I've been waiting for them to do another movie together for YEARS.

I've also neglected my friends list, but I'd like to give a big virtual *hug* to Eva.

My-So-Called Life reruns at five in the morning are fantastic.

Time:2:46 am.
Mood: calm.
It was gorgeous today, like 55 and not a cloud in the sky gorgeous. I saw people in shorts...I didn't go that far but I was really tempted to wear flip flops. And maybe 55 isn't warm to anyone outside of the midwest but after the winter we've had anything over 50, hell anything over 40 is warm to me.

Amy forced me to go to the player appearance today, there was little drama involved but I still feel like I'm stuck in the middle of some on going battle between the PR director and the director of game opps. it's one of those well he said you said this and she said you said that and on both sides what I've said has been greatly exageratted. I like both these people, I work closely with both these people, they don't really like each other...it's like I'm their in between, I feel like it's pretty unfair to put me in that situation. And I would have gratefully removed myself from the situation all together today but I didn't want to abandon Amy and make her go by herself. All in all it was a useless two hours, the rookies just skated around with some kids...I took some cute pictures for the website and almost managed to fall on my ass at least twice on the ice.

This time change, like always, is still fucking with me...I had trouble going to bed last night and even more trouble trying to drag myself out of bed this morning.

If there was one thing that I truly miss about living at home and near my parents is family time, I'm out in the middle of fucking west Michigan with my closest family member two and a half hours away in either direction, in Chicago and in Detroit. And when my Mom calls me and tells me about how my favorite aunt and uncle came up from Toledo over the weekend and they went out to dinner and then they stayed the night and all that it makes me really homesick. I rarely get homesick anymore, but today I really was...it'll happen again around Easter when I have to work here (if they team is still in the playoffs) and once again will miss family time. This sentiment may change after next weekend when my parents come out to go to a game and are spending the night, my mom I can handle, a full day with my dad in close proximity may equal disaster.

Spring break has officially begun, actually it started like last Friday but still. Today I had nothing to do, so I went with Britney and Amy and two of the hockey players to a player appearance...we were asked probably 4 times which kids were ours out there, and nobody got it when we said "the two big ones." I hope that none of us look old enough to have 5 and 6 year old kids, lol.

It is so much fun to sit and watch these little kids attempt to skate, and when they fall they just lay there and make snow angels on the ice. These player appearances are a breeze though, aside from the bitching from Dobben about not having his insoles for his skates because the equipment manager didn't do his job, but McAllister didn't complain at all, he seems like a super nice guy, I wanted to sit and just talk with him about his years in the NHL but I didn't want to come across as some fan girl.

I went to Blockbuster today thinking Borat would be there, it doesn't come out until tomorrow, I really just wanted to beg them to let me rent it today but I got The Prestige instead.

So poor JC has to start all over again? I don't know what to think, will it be different with this single...I can already see myself defending the poor guy because he's going to be called Nick Lachey part II. I have a feeling the reviews aren't going to be as kind. And how does this work, do all the people who already reviewed UY review the new single? Does he go back out to the same radio stations with a different single and explain what happened? It's all so messed up. And I will honestly die of shock if "You Ruined Me" actually does go for adds in April like FMQB is saying it will, nothing ever goes right for him.

One of my neighbors died over the weekend, I hadn't really known them or talked with them since I was younger, but my parents knew them...she was 66 years old and had a stroke while she was having her hip replaced. Stuff like that really starts to hit home for whatever reason, my parents are getting up there in age...well I mean they're in their early 50's but still it makes me think about them dying.

My favorite episode of Seinfeld is on, the one where Jerry and George are mistaken for a gay couple by this NYU grad student and she writes an article about it that's picked up by the AP...Jerry is freaking out because he's been outed when he was never closeted.

Philosophy is kicking my ass right now, I'm way too ADD to be in this class. It takes me twice as long to do the readings because I have to decipher what they're actually implying. One of the chapters actually references the Matrix, as if I wasn't confused enough they had to add in a movie that messes with my mind too.

Ha, the padres are skiiing up north and all the snow is melting, but another winter storm has snuck up on me so just as the snow starts to melt another six inches are on the way.

George got his balls cut off this weekend, he needs it, maybe he'll settle down a little. I feel bad that he's at the kennel this weekend though. I hate thinking about him sitting there and wondering what's going on, if he's been given up on again and my parents aren't going to come back and get him. I just think of his sad little (not really his head is HUGE) face. :(

I don't know if I'm sick or it's just the weather, I've felt like shit all day, serious headache and sick to my stomach. The stomach thing started last night while I was at the game but I haven't gotten sick so I'm assuming I'm not going to. I don't need to be sick this week, mid-terms are going to be a bitch.

The Tigers started spring training, and I've been looking at the pictures and who are some of these pitchers, they're hot, and we don't have a huge amount of hot pitchers on the Tigers, minus JV who I love to swoon over as I will right now. Hello, Mr. Rookie of the Year:

Have to be up at 6:30, which is way early for me. I'm not a morning person, I'm a night crawler...so of course when I have to be up that early it's generally an awful day because I probably didn't get to sleep until around 4 when I usually find my way to bed.

My mom thinks I have a serious issue with insomnia, maybe I do, but I also know that if I have to re-work my sleep schedule for early morning classes I can generally do it. It's just that this semester I have none, and my earliest classes are at like one in the afternoon. So that leaves lots of time for me to stay up and watch Intervention, First 48 or Cold Case Files...pretty much whatever is on A&E, I'm a forensics nerd.

Oooh, tonight on MSNBC there's a documentary on a murder in the Hollywood Hills, I think I remember reading about this in an article in Cosmo a few years back. It probably sticks out in my mind because she's from Michigan and went to the same University I go to.

The pictures of Britney actually in rehab are a little disurbing, I guess I was completely wrong to assume that since her rep asked for the media to respect her privacy they would maybe give her some breathing room...start stalking her Mom since she's the one that is probably taking care of her kids. But no, they hunt her down and have pictures of her in rehab the day she checks in and they sent freaking helicopters to get pictures of her...and people wonder why she's going insane. Leave the girl alone for the month or two it takes her to sort this thing out.

Where's JC? Video please, please be shooting the video...because I thought he'd be back doing the radio thing by now, it makes me uneasy to not hear anything about what he's doing, even if it's like a myspace bulletin. He needs to be out there pimping that song nonstop.

I have to go to Jamaica this fall, I know, awful right...I really really want to go and I'm going to go but as usual I've procrastinated in booking this trip. I hate flying, am terrified, but it's for Kendra and it's for her wedding so I'm going to do it even if I have to drug myself to get on that plane. My dilemma in booking the trip would also be that the wedding is at a Sandals resort, which is a couple's resort...I'm in a couple, lol, but will I still be in that relationship in September?

Friday Night Lights tonight, eeee!

Oh Britney, Britney, Britney. I still love her, I do, I'll never stop loving her. She's been crazy in my mind now for a couple of years so this whole shaving the hair thing didn't totally rock my world, but it was a shock.

Over under on how many times JC is going to have to answer the "what do you think about Britney shaving her head?" during his next round of radio interviews. If he does 15 interviews, I'm going +10 for sure, people are going ape shit over this.

On the bright side, leave it to Britney to take all gossip attention away from everything else, which is exactly what JC needed...something else to occupy Perez.

My love for Friday Night Lights just increased, if that was at all possible, after Wednesday's episode. Maybe my favorite episode to date, Riggins and Smash coming together in subtle ways, Riggins beating the shit out of the opposing teams player that throws racial slurs at Smash, my heart soars for Riggins. Matt will always be my love though...we need some more Matt and Coach Taylor interaction, somehow I feel it coming...I mean Matt is about to sleep with Coach's daughter, the writers wouldn't miss an opportunity to scare the shit out of Matt by sending an angry Coach his way.

I found screen caps, I have to use them...besides what else is there to do at 4 in the morning (besides sleep):

Smash and Riggins hash it out in the halls, Riggins wants Smash to come back, Smash stands his ground:

My three favorite players (Matt, Riggins & Smash), Riggins wants to know if they won the game even though it's been called due to fighting after three quarters (they did):

Tim Riggins, behold the beauty that is him:

Can't forget Coach Taylor, Mr. Kyle Chandler...love him:

Speaking of Coach Eric Taylor. I totally forgot that he was bomb dude on Grey's Anatomy, so color me surprised when he showed up at the end of the last Grey's episode. I'm hoping for lots of Kyle Chandler next week.

Spring break is rapidly approaching, too bad I'm going to be stuck at school, ah well, I'll survive.

Wednesday is the education day game, so that means we have to be at the arena at 8:30 in the morning to welcome a bunch of elementary school kids who are going to be jacked up on sugar and god knows what else for a 10:30 game. It's going to be brutal, I think I'm going to need to invest in some ear plugs.

The weekly Britney tabloids are rolling in, this time there are a few JC mentions:

From US Weekly:
Still, there are some guys she can count on, she told pal JC Chasez when they met up in NYC February 6, during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: her sons, Sean, 17 months, and Jayden, 5 months. "She told me how much a blessing it is...to know that you're going to have somebody that will love you forever," Chasez tells US.



From OK! (Thanks to T):
...reaching out to the former *NSYNC star through his friend and one-time bandmate JC Chasez. In fact, she asked him to score her a ticket to Justin's show, and has looked to JC for personal and professional guidance. "It's taken some time to heal her wounds," JC tells OK!. "It will be about trying to make better decisions in the future. You learn from your mistkaes."

This shit is starting to sound like a fan fiction...I swear there was one out there at some point about Britney having some breakdown and JC runs into her and he helps her get help. I would love if he could help her out but seriously some of the stuff that her former assistant has said makes me think she just needs to hit rock bottom to come out of this. How can someone be so oblivious to what's going on in her life when it's so obvious to everyone else.

So the wedding today at the game was pretty entertaining, it was so quick, five minute wedding Vegas style during the intermission. But her dress was beautiful and I guess they wanted to do something fun for their wedding, not my style but I guess I won't question someone elses. Plus the ice was pink and pretty so that made it better, lol. There was also a proposal during the first period, love is all around.

I'm tired of seeing the name Perez and I really don't even like typing it...so I'm going to come up with an alternative. So far I'm down to fucktard and asshat, I'm sure there are more out there that would fit him just fine as well. On the plus side, every post I come across about JC's gay rumor on other messageboards usually includes a bunch of people asking where JC's new music is, and then someone will provide it...so if there's any bright side to this entire situation I guess that would be it. JC needs to get back on that radio tour, he did say he was coming to the Midwest right? Michigan would be in the Midwest, he needs to bring his ass here.

Not sure how I missed the fact that the Daytona 500 is this weekend already and spring training for the Tigers has begun...where has the offseason gone?

My love for *NSYNC was revealed at work the other day. Before every game all the interns, there's like 12 of us, have dinner in the conference room and the number of concerts we'd been to came up. So I threw out my number, and it's between like 30 and 35. Now I don't think that's that many concerts over 9 years but apparently to them it was a ton, so then I had to explain that 11 or 12 of them (not counting JC and Justin solo) were *NSYNC concerts and all but two were in Detroit. Jason was beside himself over this information, he thought it was so funny, he just kept saying "I never would have guessed..." and then of course I have no shame so I had to go into the "stalking" details of my *NSYNC past. Amy loved this information and said she's recruiting me to stalk Justin with her in March, I'm not going anywhere near Detroit when he's here but I'd be happy to lend her some possible hotels that he'll be at, lol.

So the entire night Jason was telling anyone that we worked with that I'd been to 12 *NSYNC concerts and when he wasn't doing that he was throwing *NSYNC trivia at me, it was actually kind of amusing how surprised he was. I will never be ashamed of my *NSYNC past.

I have shamelessly become obsessed with I Love New York, I try to avoid shows like that but I just couldn't look away from this trainwreck, it's just so much fun.

No more fucking snow after this next storm, I can't take it...no more.

No class today, the University decided not to attempt to kill us and saved us all our fingers, toes and pretty little skin on our cheeks. This is only the second time in 4 and a half years that I've been here that Western has shut down. I honestly don't mind, I'll just not get out of bed today because holy shit it's cold. I do think that maybe I should go outside and attempt to start my car, two days in a row in below zero temperatures without it being started can't be a good thing.

JC is apparently going to be attending two fashion shows today at Fashion Week, the Max Azria (loves it) show and something that starts with a V, can't recall the exact name of the designer, shows how much I know. We'll see if he shows up, but word is those are the two. Too bad he couldn't be in Miami to hang out at the afterparty with Joey, Justin and K-Fed yesterday, goodtimes, lol.

I'm very disappointed that I'm missing the career fair at the Palace tomorrow, more disappointed because I'm missing out on a good time with Beth and Jason, and a free Pistons game. Oh well, life goes on.
