Kerianne, favorite sister o' mine, I had a lovely time yesterday. And you'll be here again soon! I'm so friggin excited. But let's talk about the concert first. So Mom picks me up on Wednesday, around 1:00 pm, and shes acting like a crazy person. She goes to get gas, runs over the curb, then pulls to the opposite side of the gas tank, and then forgets to close the gas tank to it's banging against the van the whole way home. But don't tell Dad. She's just excited to see me, I'm telling you. We get home, I drive (woo-hoo) to the UPS Store to mail some lovely people some mail, take a shower, and we're ready get Keri from Midway Airport to get see Rufus. I haven't seen Kerianne in 2 months, so I was ready to hug the shit out of her when I saw her. And shit her pants she did. (Shut up, if you read this Keri). So we get on the train, or the "L" as we call it in Chicago, and this lady sits across from us. Keri notices her staring, and I don't, but finally she goes, "Are you guys twins?". Keri and and I laugh, saying no, but we're only 15 months apart. She continues to stare at us, saying "Your eyes are the same......but your eyebrows are different......she has more dimples (pointing to Keri) and her hair is curlier....and your boobs are bigger." That would have been even creepier if she really said that last part, but it's true. Goddamn you Kerianne, for being the younger sister and having bigger boobs than me. It was kinda creepy though, cause she was staring at us the whole time, until we got off.
It was crazy, because the last time me and Ker were on the "L" was in February when we were going to our first Rufio concert. The train was really crowded, when all of a sudden, out of the blue, this guy about 15 feet from us goes, "HEY, ARE YOU GUYS TWINS?!" Keri goes, "Yeah, we are." And that was the end of the conversation, until 5 minutes later the same guy goes, "HEY, 2 MINUTES OR 30 SECONDS ?" I was like, what the fuck is he talking about, until Keri goes "2 minutes!" He meant how far apart we were born, but it was just so random. And funny. We laughed about it the rest of the night. It's weird when people think we look alike, because no one in our family does, it's always just strangers who ask if we're twins. If you ask me, she's lucky to look like me. So there you go, the only 2 times me and Keri have been on the "L" together, we get asked if we're twins. Crazy, huh? Just agree with me goddamnit.
So we get to Rufus with 10 minutes to spare, only to find out he had an opening act that I ended up loving, David Berkley. But Keri saw some guy fall up the stairs there, which is 100 times better than seeing people falling down the stairs, so I am eternally jealous. Until I fall up the stairs myself, then it won't be so goddamn funny anymore.
Rufus Wainwright, you are the best ever. It wasn't "as great" as the first time we saw him, but holy fuck, the man is awesome. And it's great seeing Rufus, cause 98% of the guys there are gay, and they are all really cute. And impeccabley dressed. Not that I expect that out of a straight guy, but it's great seeing so many cute guys at one time, even though they won't ever look at me twice because I'm a girl. Rufus played a lot of my favorite songs, like "California" "Want" "Dinner at Eight" and his cover of "Hallejulah". He also played the song "Little Sister" which was wonderful, because I was there with my little sister! Isn't that precious. At this one point, Rufus was talking about how he loved Jeff Buckley, and was going on about he had met him, for at least a good 3 minutes, which seemed like a long time, at the time. Keri and I both love Jeff, so I was all excited to hear one of my favorite singers talk about my other favorite singer, and thought Keri was would be happy too. After Rufus starts singing the song he says he wrote about Jeff, Keri goes "Who was he talking about?" I laughed for a good 2 minutes at least, because Rufus has been going on about Jeff forever, and Keri had no idea who he was talking about. I should explain right here that Keri does have about a 30% hearing loss, so I can't make fun of her for not hearing. But I still laughed hard. I'm deaf too, when it comes to movies and shit like that, so at least 6 times when Rufus was talking to the crowd, we had to look at each other and be like "What is he talking about" and pretend to laugh with the rest of the crowd, cause we didn't want to look like morons. It was a kickass concert though, and I had alot of fun, even though the gay guy next to me was weird and didn't clap at all during the concert. I even switched seats with Keri at one point because the guys in front of her kept "nuzzling" (in her words) and she couldn't see shit. Sheesh, keep your hands off each other during a concert. No one wants to see you get sexual with your boyfriend. Get a room.
We eventually got home, and went out for coffee. Keri hasn't had a cigarette since September 19th, but she took a drag of one of mine. Don't tell our parents. She's the good daughter right now because she quit and I still smoke. Assrammer. I'm proud of you though, for not asking for a whole one. I just lost a dollar.....TO MYSELF. I swear I had a lot more funnier stories to tell, but I'm drawing a blank right now. I had a gigantic midterm today at 3:30, and I didn't study at all last night. I got back to the apartment around 11:00 am, studied for 45 minutes, then took a 2 hour nap, slept through my 2:00 class, studied for 45 more minutes, freaked out about the test, got offered Aderol to help me study by my neighbor, then went to go take it, and actually did ok. Or I think I did until I find out on Tuesday.
I'm tired of typing now, Bill is aleep because he hates me and Jenn is out getting drunk. I expect a drunk phone call lady! I'm waiting for Emily to call for her ride home from the bar, because I was too lazy to take shower and go out myself. But Sister will be here tomorrow! Holy shit I'm excited. I pledge to get you drunk beyond your means Keri. Yay for tomorrow!!
