Wishing the happiest of birthdays to my favorite drummer/multi-instrumentalist/singer/songwriter and world-class hugger! Love you, Than!



Other fans can post birthday wishes for Than over on [livejournal.com profile] blackgoldrush here. I'm getting word to Than about the post, so I'm pretty sure he'll actually see all the notes we leave for him. Go! Leave a birthday comment for him! Black Gold loves you, you know! :-D

Meh. There are a number of things on that list that I *want* to do but haven't yet. FWIW, singing karaoke is *not* one of them. Ha. And can someone tell me what "mudding" is?

Ryan and Keltie are still together. Both Ryan and his friend (and ex-gf) Kate - who does bear a striking resemblance to Keltie - confirmed this when I met both of them after the Phantom Planet show on Friday night. Actually it was at about 2am Saturday morning, but whatever.

The whole concept of ~rumors is just... I don't know. I just love the way they come flying out of the mouths (and/or keyboards) of people who haven't even made an effort to find out the truth. Wild assumptions FTW! Not.

I can't honestly say 100% for certain that there was no making out. I didn't have my eyes on them throughout the entire show. I mean... I was there to see Phantom Planet, not make sure Ryan wasn't cheating on his girlfriend. But to me, Ryan's body language definitely didn't look like that of a person who was with anyone other than a good friend. Kate was playing with Ryan's hair and putting her head on his shoulder and they did have their arms around each other at times, but I didn't see anything remotely resembling making out.

I *can* say that I met and talked to both Ryan and Kate after the show. Kate introduced herself to me while Ryan was talking to some other fans, and she and I talked for several minutes. She told me that she and Ryan dated a bit back before Ryan met Keltie and that they've stayed friends ever since. We had a significant enough conversation that when Ryan came back over to us, he said (while smiling - I swear he was smiling the whole night), "Are you girls bonding?" I just said "yep" and grinned. Kate said "Jennifer, I love you, man" and gave me a big hug. She uses the expression "man" the way some people call everyone "dude" or whatever. ::shrug::

Ryan claimed to recognize me from the Panic M&G's I've met him at. I suppose he could at least remember that he'd seen my face before - I have met him twice this year. He and I talked a bit about Black Gold. According to him, Eric was supposed to be at the show as well, but bailed because he and Than have been working on their latest video.

There's more, including my pic with Ryan that Kate took, but I'll post all that later. Oh - and I do know why Keltie's blog makes it sound a little like she and Ryan are breaking up. They aren't, but I know now what she means about the timing being wrong. I'm not going to explain further than that, except to say again that according to both Kate and Ryan, Ryan and Keltie are still together.

Anyway, I'm going back to bed. Been sleep deprived for a couple of days due to the trip to LA and back. It was SO INCREDIBLY WORTH IT THOUGH OMG!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE ALEX, DARREN, JEFF AND SAM AND I LOVE RYAN ROSS, who was SO NICE to me even though he was sick and yes... I love you too, Kate. You didn't know me at all, and you were so friendly and sweet. Thank you for that. Oh, and I did get a hug from each of the guys in Phantom Planet, and a hug from Ryan as well. Life is good. And I want to move to LA so badly I can taste it.

P.S. - Someone posted some great pics from the show here: http://www.thecobrasnake.com/partyphotos/lastphantomplanet/ I don't see Kate in any of them though.

Things are getting crazier. Mom is still recovering from her foot surgery that took place at the end of August. She's getting around a lot better now, and no major bandage changes are required anymore (I was doing all of her bandage changes), but she still needs a lot of help and isn't driving again yet. Just yesterday she realized I'll be gone all next week and she'll have to ask Dad if she needs help with something. She hates asking Dad for help - he's a total grouch when anyone asks him to do anything, it seems like.

So anyway, my schedule for the next little while:

Oct. 11-18 - Panic Extravaganza and trip to Seattle with [livejournal.com profile] darksylvia
Oct. 19 - Mom's birthday
Oct. 20 - Dad's eye surgery (outpatient, but can't drive for a while)
Oct. 22-24 - at my sister's; she's having surgery for a femoral hernia (outpatient, but can't lift her son for a while)
Unknown date in first 2 weeks of November - Dad's other surgery (um... being done by a colo-rectal surgeon... more serious than hemorrhoids... let's just leave it at that)
Nov. 13 - Black Gold concert in San Francisco

At least that month of craziness begins and ends with fun stuff. And there is a bit of a break, hopefully, after my sister's surgery.

I was planning to have surgery this year to get my VNS implant removed, but I don't think that's going to happen. At least the implant isn't causing me any problems. It's just weird that it's still inside my body when it's been turned off for longer than it was turned on.

Ah well. One day at a time. :-| Must get to bed. Up far too late as it is.

I just posted a quick report on my adventures from last night over on [livejournal.com profile] blackgoldrush. Click here.

I ♥ Black Gold!!!

I am going to see Black Gold in LA on Sunday night! Yes! I made it work. I had dreamed up a plan to go down there and see them Sunday and stay a few days visiting with my aunt, uncle and cousins and then see Black Gold play again on Wednesday night, but that was maybe a little over-ambitious and it won't, unfortunately, work out (free accommodations are only available on Sunday night). But still - Sunday night! Black Gold! YES!!!

Any LA people want to go with me?

In other wonderfully fabulous news, [livejournal.com profile] darksylvia and I both have our plane reservations for our Panic At The Disco concert exchange extravaganza! She's flying down here for the Sacramento show (Oct. 12th), then we're both flying back to Seattle for the show up there (Oct. 14th), and then I'm staying a few extra days with her. Because she's so awesome and wonderful and cool.

And did I mention that WE'RE SEEING PANIC AT THE DISCO TOGETHER AGAIN??? TWICE???? That will make 4 times we have seen them together this year. This is also incredibly awesome and wonderful and cool. :-D

I ♥ you Leah!! We get to reinvent ♥ with Panic AGAIN!!!




Other not-so-good news about my emotional health and my poor sick birdie... )

Hope everything is well with all of you, wonderful f-list people. :-)

Well, actually the pics are here: http://pics.livejournal.com/jenepherre/gallery/00035eqz

It's late (or early, rather) and I'm tired from taking care of the two youngest nephews all day Thursday and Friday... not sure how I ended up getting stuck with that, except that they both seem to respond to me, which is good, I guess. I do adore them. Anyway, too tired to actually post the pics in my journal, so you'll have to go to the above link to see them.

There are also random and mostly blurry Zack and Shane pics here: http://pics.livejournal.com/jenepherre/gallery/0003ed3z

I did have fun Shane-spotting. And did talk to him again briefly. He's filming some stuff for Black Gold along with all the stuff he's doing for Panic. Also met Eric (again) and Than from Black Gold, and they're both incredibly awesome.

My sis-in-law arrived sometime during Phantom Planet's set, but I was out meeting Eric and Than along with the super cool [livejournal.com profile] atorable. She and I met while waiting for the meet & greet and just happened to have seats almost right next to each other for the show. We went through the meet & greet together, squeed about the boys and hugs and talked about what pot flowers look like up close. It was THE BEST. ;-D

I have video clips too, but haven't figured out where to upload those yet, because they are glorious 640x480 and I don't want YouTube making them look crappy. Maybe I'll just upload to Sendspace? I don't know. Ideas are welcome.

On the downside - unrelated to the concert - I didn't go to NYC after all and didn't get to see Randypants in Antony & Cleopatra. Lois needed to stay home with her hubby after his surgery, and honestly - I was still recovering from the Panic concert anyway. Wren, my dear... I will have to find some other way to pay you back since I couldn't get you a Playbill. Sorry!

It's almost 5am here, and I should think about getting a little bit of sleep. More later, I'm sure. ::waves to [livejournal.com profile] darksylvia, [livejournal.com profile] celiarosalind and [livejournal.com profile] atorable and everyone else on her f-list::

I just got off the phone with Artist Arena, and they actually came through!! They just confirmed that I am "100% guaranteed" on the Meet & Greet list for the DC show, to make up for their fuck up in San Francisco. And [livejournal.com profile] darksylvia is on the M&G list for the Seattle show! YAY!!! Maybe Artist Arena is getting their act together, finally. I did point out to them that they misspelled words in their emails too. If you want people to give you money, you have to look professional and trustworthy, know what I mean?

Other good news about the DC show - BLACK GOLD WILL BE PLAYING AT IT!!!!!!!!!!! ERIC RONICK!!!!!!!! And hopefully Brendon will come out and sing the one part of Plans & Reveries with them! I can't wait! Next Wednesday!!!

Then on Friday, I head for NYC. See Randy in Antony & Cleopatra with Lois. Hopefully find time to go to Angels & Kings with [livejournal.com profile] celiarosalind (a mug shot of me in the same spot where Bdon was being silly/drunk! ::fingers crossed::). And do a little bit of sightseeing on Saturday before coming back to DC.

After all that... the big letdown. Nothing exciting planned after that. And a mega-huge credit card bill to pay off. But *so* worth it.

Having a lot of fun with my niece and nephews here. They are so much fun and so affectionate and so *smart.*

Ack - must go get dressed for dinner. We're going out to dinner for Dad's 74th birthday today.

P.S. - [livejournal.com profile] celiarosalind, I will email you after dinner tonight.
