Pre-HCT action...  
This is so AWESOME that I don't even know where to start...and we haven't even been to the shows yet.

Okay, so the girls (aka Carlie, Alyssa and Mireya) and I have tickets to the HCT (Honda Civic Tour, for those on my flist who don't know WTF I'm blabbering about) for next Monday, June 18th here in Houston and then Wednesday, June 20th in San Antonio. I bought our tickets for both shows back when they went on presale with OCK and with Ticketmaster as well. I bought a set of seat tickets and then pit tickets to the Houston show (yes, I bought 8 tickets! Ha) and just pit tickets to the San Antonio show. You see, I was paranoid that I wouldn't get good tickets to the Houston show, so I jumped and bought those seat tickets...then when ticketmaster's presale started I was like DUDE, they actually have pit tickets...so I bought those too.

I digress...so that day I sign up Carlie and myself for the chance for M&G for both shows and early entry for San Antonio only (it wasn't available at the Houston show for some reason). I can't sign up Alyssa and Mireya because they aren't OCKs. Ah well. Their parents won't pay for things online apparently, so they aren't OCKs. Well, a few weeks ago, literally, I decided that Alyssa and Mireya NEED to be OCKs...so I sign them up myself without telling them. SURPRISE! I sign them up and then go directly to the HCT early entry and M&G page and try to sign them up for that as well. I didn't think we had a chance for early entry for them because they only give it to the first 100 OCKs that sign up for it.

And, I was thinking...hmmm, with these two girls added on, we have 8 chances to win M&G....at least one of us, right? They randomly choose 15 OCKs for each HCT show to win M&G. Those 15 OCKs can each bring one other OCK with them to the M&G.

Well, I checked my email yesterday and found out that I did get early entry for San Antonio. I figured I would. I signed us up almost immediately. Turns out Carlie, Alyssa and Mireya did as well. Maybe there aren't that many OCKs in San Antonio. So, I get Alyssa to check her email and OMG she won M&G to the Houston show! We sort of jumped up and down and cried and hugged each other! Then we hack into Reya's email *hehe* and she won M&G for the same show!

This is where Alyssa sort of melts out of the chair and onto the floor and I can't stop hugging myself! All four of us are going to M&G at the Houston show. I WILL GET TO TAKE A PICTURE OF SPENCER IN HIS FOB ONESIE FOR THEM TO SIGN! I just. Yeah, I'm sort of speechless I guess.

What are the odds that 2 of the 15 people chosen for this M&G are people I know? People that I bought tickets for? People I signed up for OCK and the contest in the first place? I'm sort of flailing here.

So yeah, next week will be more awesome than I can even understand. I didn't really think I'd get to meet them AGAIN and show them Spencer and OMG, I really do wonder if they'll remember "PREGNANT GIRL"!? I mean, I'd hoped, but honestly, did I think I'd really get to do this again? How can I be this lucky?

OMG what am I going to say? Should I take them pictures of Spencer to keep? Will they WANT them? I need advice!

Thanks for tuning in to this flailing mess of a post. You can go back to what you were doing now.

!!!!!!!!! You am Lex have the most amazing concert karma, I just! YAY!

My take on the picture thing-- take one for them to sign, and if one of them (I SAY JOE) gets all excited and giggly about it, have an extra in your back pocket to give as a gift. (I dunno-- tell them it was for one of the other M&G girls, but you can get her one some other time, blah blah). Then its not like "HERE IS A PICTURE OF MY BABY, TAKE IT", which I am all for, but its FOB, and they are wierd. (But joe! Would totally love a pic of Spencer in his FOB getup! He would put it up in the bus, and he and Pete would wave at it before shows!)

You get to meet them again! All non-pregnant-like! Joe will not be mad at you about the pit thing! \o/
I AM  YOUR WIFE!eckerlilas on June 13th, 2007 02:44 pm (UTC)
I know! We so do!!! YAY!

I like that idea. I'll bet it will be Joe who gets giggly and excited. I'm getting giggly and excited just thinking about it now. And yeah, I didn't want to be all crazy and shove the pic in their faces.

OMG they are going to put it up on the wall in their bus! I just know it!

Yes, Joe will not continually fuss over me and my pregnant belly this time. I can't decide if I'm happy about that or not. :D

CONGRATS GIRL!!!!!!!!!!! definitly have pictures of the baby for them and have them sign one as well. they need pics of a fob baby!!!
I AM  YOUR WIFE!eckerlilas on June 13th, 2007 10:36 pm (UTC)
I'm going to do all of the above. Oh god, I'm just imagining them actually taking a photo of Spencer and keeping it!

Congrats! I am psyched for you!!

I think <lj user="eleanor_lavish" has a great idea. That way you can give it to them without looking like some crazed Mom who is shoving their kid upon them! I was going to say they would put the picture up on their bus beside Emma's artwork (which had better be up!!) but that was for Patrick and he is on a different bus. But you get the idea. Say, did you ever get that entry form?
I AM  YOUR WIFE!eckerlilas on June 13th, 2007 08:41 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I don't want to come off like some crazy Mom!

I did get it! And I immediately sent it in!

Whoops! I totally thought I told you! Haha.

Re: \O/
THANKS! *hugs*

Well, my cousin made Spencer a little white onesie that says "FOB Baby" on it. I was going to take his picture in it and take that with me to the show. A few copies, so I'll have one to give them and maybe some of my friends if they want.

DUDE, they are family! They blessed the little one while he was still in my belly! Particularly Joe and Andy! I just! GAH.

Re: \O/
OH yeah and I forgot...I totally personally know someone you refer to on your UI page. Holler at me on AIM sometime and I'll tell you all about it!

when I read this I flailed and squealed and tried to explain to my friend who was over (she's gone now) in a really breathless and barely understandable voice why I was so excited.

I was all "Shonna! My friend in the US. She has a baby named Spencer! *gestures wildly at the wall where my poster is* Yes like the drummer in Panic! And and she won Meet and Greet to see Fall Out Boy *runs over and jabs other poster* yes yes them. Yes the one with the really gay bassist who is also the frontman for the band - he's been quoted as saying he's gay above the waist which is awesome but I like to think that that was his way of meeting the fans halfway like 'this half is gay and this half is straight - everyone happy?' anyway so she gets to see FOB and she's taking a picture of Spencer in his FOB onesie which is so COOL. Oh oh and she met them before! When she was pregnant with Spencer! And they were excited that she was having a baby boy and naming him Spencer and like it's fairly likely they won't remember because they meet bazillions of people, but I really kinda think (I hope) that they will remember Shonna because come on she was in the mosh pit when she was pregnant for godsake."

Umm... I think it was one of FOB that was impressed that you were moshing whilst you were pregnant? :P Unless that was another band? I can't keep up.

But yes! THAT IS AWESOME! As you can probably tell from my recollection of what I said to my friend. :P

My friends face after I said all that to her? O_O and she said "Okay". Yeah she doesn't know any of the bands etc. She knows more than she did when she came, because I kept talking at her about bandslash the whole time and filled in all the gaps to try and explain stuff. But apparantly I used heaps of words that sound like another language and I didn't even realise I was doing it (eg: canon). I can't even think of what words weren't english... I'm so used to using all these bandom related words so... *shrug*

YAY FOR M&G! Eeeeeee \o/

*loves* ♥
I think I would just cut the wire.: pxpagent99 on June 15th, 2007 01:27 am (UTC)
YES I like the idea of just bringing extras and seeing who seems excited about it and being like "Well I have an extra...like, I was going to give it to *insert name here* but yeah, you know how creepy us new moms are about pictures, we just have them coming out of our asses, so..." or whatever. hell use my name, its not like i wont be in houston LMFAO. this is freaking awesome dude, very awesome :)
desperate and a little delusionalanothersadsong on June 15th, 2007 06:48 am (UTC)
so, yeah, awesome is a pretty good word for everything. except you've got to say it 'AWESOME!!!!11!!' :0D
Kkate_the_great7 on June 19th, 2007 04:37 pm (UTC)
Hi, I'm about to be creepy in a stalkerish way right now...
First of all, I'm Kate! I live in Houston too! And I'm pretty sure I was standing right in front of you in the pit last night!
I'd seen your journal a while back after you left a sweet comment on one of my fics, and I think I recognized you from the picture of you with FOB when they got all sappy over you being pregnant. So last night, I was all, OMG that's the girl from LJ who has the baby! But then I didn't want to be creepy and say something. You may have noticed me trying to lurk and sneak a peek at the boysex pictures you were taking without letting on to my oblivious friend that I was doing so.
Anyway, I just thought I should introduce myself, because seriously? It is such a small world! I hope you had as much fun as I did last night! ♥
I AM  YOUR WIFE!eckerlilas on June 19th, 2007 05:13 pm (UTC)
Hi there! So which one were you? LOL You aren't being stalkerish, I wish you'd said something!

I need more real life LJ friends that are actually close by. Here I am, assuming you actually want to be friends! Haha

Yep, I'm "pregnant girl". Well, now "the girl with Baby Spencer, who was blessed by FOB while still in the womb". I had m&g with them last night as well (as I'm sure you can tell by this post) and it was amazing. I'll post about it hopefully later today.

Oh yeah, I took some crazy amazing last night, including those guitarsex pictures during TAI.

I had an AMAZING time. AMAZING! Really small world, indeed. Hey, sixwhitelies was on the barrier just in front of me and to the left. And trickycharmer was just behind me. Yeah, we LJ girls travel in packs. I keep us all together, like woah.

I'm heading to the San Antonio show tomorrow, actually. I'd have bought tickets for the Dallas show, but I didn't want my mother to either shoot or disown me....so I held back.

We should hook up and hang together at the Houston show for the fall tour, if you intend to go. ♥♥♥

YAY, now I'm going to go friend you if you don't mind!
(Anonymous) on June 19th, 2007 10:23 pm (UTC)
Of course I don't mind! I'm going to friend you back! I don't have nearly enough LJ friends so I'm always looking for more!

I was the one in the white shirt, very sweaty, had never been in the pit before. My friend was right behind me and she was the one vaguely disturbed by Travis Barker's spitting habits. She doesn't really appreciate the boysex, I'm sad to say.

If I can get tickets to the show in the fall and school isn't too hectic, then I will probably try to go to the show. This time I definitely want to hang with the LJ girls!

P.S. I was swooning over Patrick's thighs while he was playing the piano for Golden. We had a great view, I have to say!

I AM  YOUR WIFE!eckerlilas on June 19th, 2007 11:15 pm (UTC)

I'm still not sure which one was you. I was a little too awestruck with the show, you know? Were you just to my left? Now I'm dying to figure out which one you were! Hahaha

OMG wait, I might remember. I do remember the Travis spitting comment...and then me thinking to myself that I still thought he was sexy regardless! :P

How can people not appreciate the boysex, I just don't get it!

Yay! Well, we should hook up if you do get to buy tix for shows in the fall, definitely.

PS - I'm always swooning over Patrick's thighs! ALWAYS. We had the BEST VIEW.
Kkate_the_great7 on June 21st, 2007 03:43 am (UTC)
Yeah, I was to your left. I was wearing a white shirt and black jeans, I have sort of blondish shoulder length hair. If you still can't figure out who I am, I think I have a few pictures of myself in my journal :D I'm so excited to have actually found LJ people who live near me!
Michelle Emiliemaybememories78 on June 19th, 2007 11:04 pm (UTC)
i know you dont know me or anything,
but im just trying to find pictures of the houston show.
i was there but, unfourtunately i didnt get that great of pictures.

so i was just wondering if you got any pics from where you were & the m&g.

and that would be great if you could post them.

but only if you want to. :]
I AM  YOUR WIFE!eckerlilas on June 19th, 2007 11:11 pm (UTC)
I will be posting the pics, but I'll be posting them f-locked....so we'll have to be friends for you to see them. :)

The only m&g pics that were allowed were the ones taken by them....i.e., they didn't let us use our cameras at all! Ah well, not a big deal.

I got amazing pictures, and might possibly be posting them later tonight. We'll see. As it is I still need to get ready for the San Antonio show tomorrow!

May I ask, how did you find me if we aren't friends? I mean, how did you know I was at the Houston show?
Michelle Emiliemaybememories78 on June 19th, 2007 11:18 pm (UTC)
i forgot.

im just surfing around on lj.
and i think i found you off of fob's lj
or someone off of there.

sry if im bugging you.

im just looking around for ppl who went to the houston show & for pics...
I AM  YOUR WIFE!eckerlilas on June 19th, 2007 11:24 pm (UTC)
You aren't bugging me....don't worry about that.

But I only share pics with my friends...and I DON'T want my stuff posted in any communities without my permission or claimed by others as their own. It happens SO MUCH.

I love to share, but I hate people who steal, you know?

So if you are here for pics for yourself alone, then all's well. :D
Michelle Emiliemaybememories78 on June 19th, 2007 11:29 pm (UTC)
oh yeah,
im not going to steal your pics.
i hate that too.

i would just like to veiw them.
but i promise i wont post them any where else on the internet.
