Merry Christmas everyone! This year was a rough one and a lot has happen. The economy took even more of a nosedive than ever and it just stretched me to my limit. Next year is looking promising and I can not wait until I am on to what it is I want to do. I have the opportunity to move to Los Angeles and live with great friends and start a new chapter of my life and I want to take it so bad. I have to make sure I have every aspect of life settled though before I go. I can't just do things on a whim like I use to. I have to think of Payton. Things seemed to be falling into place and I think it is going to be an AMAZING chapter. I am 24 and I have a feeling my life is going to start to click into place. I have my first degree with my second one in the process, Payton is getting older, I have amazing friends that are willing to support me along the way, and I can not wait. Lets do this 2010!


P.S. Maybe I've already met the man of my dreams and L.A. will allow it to work... hmmm...

I can't breathe....

It feels like there is a rock in my chest. I can't swallow. I can't breathe. It aches with the rise and fall of each strangled breathe. It aches constantly. I'm good at hiding it. I have to be. I would fall apart if I didn't. Its like a safe. It stays locked a majority of the time. Then I have those weak days where it all spills out and the pain is overpowering. It's my own fault. I walked away. I turned my back. I deserve everything and anything he throws at me. Throwing something at me would be him at least showing that he sees me. The silence is deafening. Silence is the worst. Silence lets me make my own conclusions. Silence make the pain echo. I don't let it come out often. I don't care. I have to tell myself that. Over and over and over. I don't care. The shadow is everywhere. In songs, stores, restaurants, and worst of all my mind. Its seared into my mind. I can't wipe it away. Maybe if I leave this place it will get better. 3000 miles should do it. Something tells me I'm wrong. My chest hurts. I miss him....

I don't care.
I don't care.

Oh how i've missed you!

That's right bitches! I'm back! It's been forever since I actually wrote a blog and didn't post a million pictures or some random hoopla! I have been way busy! Artists On Demand is going crazy with talent and we are bringing on 2 more hosts, which will mean we are up to (if you leave me out) 7 hosts, 1 random host, 1 audio guy, and then me... the media relations coordinator. At least that is the name I have assigned myself. 

What else... hmmmm... back in school. Bachelors degree, here I come! I am the proud owner of my Associates degree in Hospitality, Travel, and Tourism. Never thought I would see the day! I am not working toward my Bachelors in Communication: With a concentration in Public Relations and Mass Communication. I'm gonna rock this shit. 

I have also decided that I might move to LA.... Los Angeles... that city over there... the one with my Monkey girls in it... You know. Nikki and Vicky are moving...and if I can nail a job down pat... I am off. I will miss Payton for a few weeks while I get our life settled out there... but if I get a good paying job... it will be worth it. We are going to take that city by storm. Ikki Enterprizes bitches! Just you wait! You'll see me on the red carpet... hells yeah! 

Alright... well... I apparently have a very bright post to go make on Nikki's blog... so I am off! This is another rambling from the one and only... K (as Mr Graupner calls me)!

RIP Keriann McLain

Keriann McLain

Born: November 19, 1989
Died: November 4, 2009

Keriann was the type of person everyone loved. She was kind to everyone and just wanted to live her life and have fun doing it. She held her friends close to her heart and they did the same. Everyone wanted to be around her. Her positive energy and beaming smile kept people flocking to her from every direction. 

On November 4, 2009 her world came to a halt. A tragic car accident ended the life of this beautiful person, but her soul will always live on. We can all rest assured that she is sitting comfortably up in heaven with God, watching down on us. She would want everyone to smile about her memory and not be angry or sad. She would want us to live our lives the way she would have lived hers... for ourselves and not letting anyone tell us how we should live it. 

Keriann was a friend of my families and one of my friends sister. She was always around and always smiling. She could make you feel happy with a small hug or a smirk on her face. So wherever you are watching from Keriann, thank you for all the happiness your brought me when I was with your family, the happiness you brought your friends, and the joy you were in all of their lives and your family. We will miss you and we love you.

On a happier note...

So I have been kind of down and cranky lately. I know I haven't really portrayed it too much in my postings... but there are ENOUGH sad posts and angry posts to justify a happy one. So here I am. I am sick today... a touch of the flu I believe. With that said... I am still in a fairly good mood. I have been struggling with some relationships lately and with some inner turmoil going on. It took its toll. I was yelling at people that I had no business yelling at... treating people rudely and being mean for reasons that did not justify making people cry. I'm a bitch. Everyone knows that. But even that was bitchy for me. So I apologize. I have worked it out with most people. Things are going smoothly. I am working... 2 fan clubs, a radio show, an intership, my regular job, and have a kid running around learning new things ALL the time... so I get a little crazy sometimes.

I am so thankful for the people I have in my life. Everyone contributes a little bit differently. Like tonight... my friend Nikki totally creeped me out. She was finishing my sentences and/or saying shit at the EXACT same moment I did. It's like she knows me... she's like fucking Edward Cullen! Reads minds or something. IDK! It made me laugh though. I have another friend that has been texting me ALL day, which is something I needed from that friendship. Something to let me know its still there. Sometimes people grow apart and you can't see that reason why you became friends in the first place... sometimes you find it hard to see those connections that you made. This was one of those cases and I think that person as well as myself have finally realized that all we really need is something to remind us of those strings that pulled us together as friends to begin with. Funny thing... once you see those connections... you can't even imagine why they would disappear ever. 

*Side note... while I was writing that... Tearing Up My Heart by NSYNC started playing* kill me now!

So anyway... things seem to be looking up. November is a very busy month for me. Lots going on! Must work my butt of because Christmas is coming and I have to buy my daughter stuff! So... I'm ok... at least mentally! lol!

Free Photo Booth

This is some of the funniest shit I have ever seen in my entire life. I hope you all get a kick out of it as much as I did!

And this one is funny, but could not be embedded....

I hate it... It makes me sad...

It makes me sad when people I use to be really really close to and things become so weird and stressed that you aren't sure it can get back to how it was. My heart breaks when I think of things like that. I don't know what I want to think, I don't know what I want to do and I don't know if I CAN do it. I get so stressed out. All I can do is think hard and do what my heart says. I don't want to loose my friend. I'm trying... I just don't know sometimes. It will work out! It will work out! It will work out!


Paranormal Activity

Ok... So I went and saw this movie last night. BTW... Thank you to my friend Nikki for referring me to it. It scared the piss out of me. I want EVERYONE to go see this movie... because for those of you who will make fun of me... I have NO shame! I shook, I hid halfway behind my hoody, I cried, I clenched the shit out of my friends hand, and I screamed. The whole damn audience screamed. This was the scariest movie I have ever seen. Most movies use music and sound effects to scare the piss out of you. This was scary because of the eery quietness of the movie. It got so silent that your ears would make that throbbing weird noise that made you know something was going to happen and then something small happened and you sighed with relief. The last 20 minutes of this movie was utterly terrifying.

I would like to say that I would have broke up with that girl a LOOOOOOONG time ago if I was that guy. Fuck that! Fuck her! And fuck all that shit that was happening in that house. You couldn't pay me enough to stay there with her. She is freaking and I would have stabbed her had she been doing a possessed freaking staring walk thing through the house the way she was. Fuck that! Anyway... go see it. It is amazing. And the director is a freaking genius because he made it on like... $11,000 dollars. One of the reviews I read from someone was "the most terrifying thing about this movie is that directors will be terrified at production companies telling them they don't need millions of dollars for special effects to scare the shit out of people." Needless to say... go pee before you watch it! Ok... so here is a trailer... fucking does it some justice... but it is a million times worse.

A great group of guys!

I have recently gotten to know a great group of guys a little better. The Nova Echo is a band based out of Asheville, NC. They have an amazing sound and an awesome stage presence. One of th e best I have ever seen. I would promote them to anyone! They are universal when it comes to a listening audience. I promise, once you hear them... you will love them.

A fanclub was just started to honor their music and to help spread the word about them. They work so hard at what they do and we want to help spread the word about them. So everyone should go at least check out the music. Their myspace is Also... go and join the fanclub @ Check out the facebook group... Official TNE fanclub.

I promise you won't regret it. They are the most amazing group of guys EVER! Promise!

Some random stuff...

I haven't actually written anything in here in a bit, so I thought I owed it to myself to empty out my head. In just over 24 hours I will be heading off to work for a few hours and then to Orlando. Staying at the Florida Hotel and Conference Center to see The Nova Echo perform... and Gil Birmingham! How freakin awesome is that! I have been counting down the days since May 9th when I first saw TNE and the time has arrived. My friend Sarah has downloaded some random monkey videos onto her Iphone as well... "Keep Awake"... that one is going to be fun to listen to. Especially when you've been drinking! Anyway... following this weekend, October 2nd I leave for a trip to Michigan to be in one of my best friend's weddings on the 10th! Yay! I wish some people would be there, but... oh well! I shall have fun! It's Three Rivers... kinda scare LOL!

I also want to thank my friends real quick... you know who you are! The ones that go an extra mile to send me something funny or nice or say something that just makes my day. It's even better when it is first thing in the morning. I love those early morning wake up messages. Thanks to you!

And now it's off to the real world... Work! One more day... one more day... one more day!

Happy Post

And in good old Kristin fashion... just had to post something up beat... cuz otherwise I am going to get 50 emails asking me "What's wrong" and 20 FB messages saying... "Want to talk about it." I love all of you and of course... but no... :) Eyecon in 3 weeks... YAY! Love The Nova Echo. Dan Graupner on AOD on Friday... can't wait... love him! Trip to Michigan from Oct. 2nd to 12th... that should be fun. I need a date to the wedding... any offers?

Ok... enough happy posts... back to listen to music and chat with... whoever! ;)

BTW... I hate your face!


A tug in the chest...

What is love? Love is when one person knows all of your secrets... your deepest, darkest, most dreadful secrets of which no one else in the world knows... and yet in the end, that one person does not think any less of you; even if the rest of the world does.

It's hard to smile all the time. You have to smile all the time because it's your job. You have to make the people around you happy. Why would you want to bring them down? Sometimes people need to cry, or get angry, or just not be happy. It's healthy... and how I wish I had the chance. I'm not always as hyper and happy as I see. Things eat at me. Things I can not stop.

I also hate when you get dragged down into a situation you didn't ask for. It is not a bad situation... it's actually REALLY good. It's just... you see how the grass could be greener... and you want it to be... but things like that don't happen to people like you. And getting your hopes up sucks. It turns out you are in a situation that is gonna crush you either way. A. your heart is broken and you are devestated.... B. You end up unbearably disappointed. And disappointment in someone or something is just as bad as not having them at all.

I'm being vague... but unfortunately... blogger is a little too public to name names... it would make things awkward and uncomfortable... and it would just get ruined all overa again. And I am not sure I am prepared for disappointment.

Sometimes I wonder...

Do you ever wonder why you even try sometimes. I know that everything I do is for a reason. I know that I am proud of my hard work, no matter what it is I am working on. There are just times that I sit and wonder why I push myself to those levels.

It just makes me wonder...

Anyway, onto a happier note... I love meeting new people. I have met so many new people these past couple of months that have shaped my life in so many different ways that I wonder sometimes if they are better friends than ones I have known my entire life. I love it. I love meeting people you just yearn to talk to. I've met a couple of those recently and it makes me wish I could talk to them more.

I hate all of their faces... I do! Some more than others! hehe!

Another case of word vomit from me.

A little blip... at 1 a.m...

It's almost 1 a.m. That is insane! I should be sleeping, but of course I am not. My beautiful daughter will be up in... approximately 6 hours and be sure to pull my hair if I do not wake up with her. Got to love kids!

Normally I have a purpose for writing a blog. Tonight... I'm gonna ramble. I have been talking to Gallie... aka Camille... (I do not know what she wants to be called these days) and we have hit many great topics... so lets discuss.

Scary movies! What the fuck has happened to the world. Scary movies are not what they use to be. On top of that... people like to ruin perfectly good scary movies by remaking them and/or adding sequels that do not belong. For instance... Urban Legends. Amazing movie... Holy craptastic sequel. It BLEW! Whoever produced it... try again! Not to be rude... but come on! The first one was amazing! Mass murderers in the backseats of cars, the room mate dying while you sleep right next to them and think they are just being ungodly loud and having sex... that is awesome. People getting killed while you film a little movie project... not so much. The final destination movies are awesome. more suspense than scary though. My personal favorite... the guy getting chopped in half by the electrical wires. That was priceless. Although I almost shed a tear when he asked the girl to hide his drug paraphanalia. That pulled on the heart strings a bit. Ok... moving on...

Men! I love men, don't get me wrong... but sometimes I wonder. I like smart guys. Smart guys that are able to hold a conversation with you. I want to have my brain stimulated... not just my genitals guys! Sorry! Let's set some ground rules. I do not like stalkers. Please do not creep outside my house to see what I'm doing or where I am going. Please do not get jealous if I hang out with my guy friends... especially the gay ones. For that matter, please do not get jealous if I hang out with my girlfriends... I still love you! Do not tell me you are going out to the strip joint in hope that I will get jealous. It won't work. In fact... I migth join you for entertainment purposes.

Last thing about guys... please please please do not judge me by looks. I understand that there has to be something there... but do not judge me by the size of my waist. It pisses me off... and I tend to be bitchy when irritated. I have an AMAZING personality (if I do say so myself) and I love hanging out and having a good time. So please... spend a moment or two with me... see if you like my personality... then move from there. You may be walking away from your best friend just because you are too blind to see what is underneath. I've had a kid.. stressed a lot... and not enough time in my day... give me a break... I'm working on it.

And last... I just watched an amazing movie... everyone should see it! The Ugly Truth! It is soooo true. Watch it, learn it, love it! Every girl wants their prince charming... but I' more of the jeans and t-shirt kind of girl than the shining armor type. I want someone who will tell me when I am being a bitch. Someone who will go through every CD in the house with me until we find that perfect song, hold me when I need comfort, laugh at me when I need to smile, forgive my past mistakes, have long talks about nothing and everything at the same time! Share life stories with me, play me in army of two on the xbox and not let me win, argue over the remote with, go for walks, loves to go out and have a good time, but also stay in and relax with movies and beer. And last, but definitely not least.... love me AND my daughter unconditionally. We are a pair. You don't get one without the other.

Is that so much to ask? Just for you to be you? I would hope not...

Heidi Montag on Ms. Universe

Seriously... could you get any more Britney-like. Britney Spears is FAMOUS for her nude colored diamond covered outfit on the awards show... and here comes Heidi Montag wearing pretty much an identical outfit, except it is a mix between stripper want to be and athlete with the racer stripes down the pants. I mean COME ON! The girl can't dance either. She was a few seconds ahead of her dancers, which weren't the greatest either, and she couldn't move. All she did was wiggled her non-existant hips and shake her flat ass. Maybe I am being a little harsh, but JESUS... if you are gonna be on TV at least make sure the dance moves are in sync. Oh... and lip singing was out a LONG time ago!

If you didn't see it... here is a copy of it... Enjoy... er... not so much!

Heads up... angry post!

WTF! Seriously... what are we... 12? Put on the big girl panties and GET OVER IT!

Meeting people...

I love meeting people! It is one of my favorite things to do. I am outgoing and have no shame walking straight up to someone, introducing myself, and saying something to make them laugh. I love when I meet someone I have already known, but never seen, and they are a million times cooler than I thought they were! Megs... that would be you! It makes knowing that person so much better! It makes me excited to be able to say... "Hey, that's my friend." On the other hand... it really sucks when you meet someone and they are nothing like what you thought. It is way disappointed. You work them up in your mind and they fall WAY short. Unfortunately, this happens, and in someone else's eyes, I am sure I have done this to someone and I apologize. I know how sucky it is. But... you've done it too!

You work yourself up and then you wish you could go back to how things were. Just knowing their voice, and not knowing what they were like in person. Every positive has to have a negative. That is the downside in life. Oh well... shit happens. To the people that have made me wish we can go back in time... it's not that I don't like you... it's just... well... we were better off before! Nobody in particular... just everyone in my past that falls under this criteria.

To everyone else... the ones that were so much fucking cooler than I thought... You fucking rock! I love you... I hate your face... I enjoy calling you my friends and look forward to many more good times!

And again... another mouthful from Kristin... I'm out!

Spencer Bell Legacy Concert Weekend

This weekend was a blast! I met lots of people, made new friends, and heard a LOT of great music. So here it is... my view on the weekend.

The whole trip started Thursday August 13th when I bawled my eyes out as my mom left the house to take my daughter to the pool so I wouldn't have to see her cry when I left. Instead I cried anyway. I made it to the airport in PLENTY of time for my flight, just to find out that it had been delayed. First an hour... then an hour and a half... then almost two hours. Finally at 7:48 we pulled away from the gate... we were schedule for 6:14 originally.

I landed at Baltimore/Washington International Airport at 9:55. I finally got to see Nikki, Vicky, and Jeanette. YAY! We made our way to Elexses house... but not before gorging on McDonalds on the car ride there. The night was interesting as we cracked up at stories, pajama choices, black people on TV, being sad, and the cow noises coming from Elexses computer.


Finally, at 2:30... we shut the lights off and went to bed.

Before we knew it... we were waking up at 5 am to get ready to leave for our 10 hour road trip to Detroit, Michigan. At 5:35, Elexses comes out of her bedroom saying, "You bitches are still awake?" which caused another fit of giggles. At 6 am we all piled into the cars and headed out, dropping Nikki's car off and heading out of the state of Maryland. The trip was long! Full of numb asses, switcharoos on seats, rest stops, and ding dongs.

We arrived at the hotel in time to dye Nikki's hair... Vicky and Nikki to get ready, us to get some grub, and them to leave for an evening with the Bell's. After they left Elexses and Jeanette decided to take a dip in the pool and I went off to meet up with Megs, Gallie (Camille... I don't get it) and Lisa! I was very excited and tackled Megs! LMAO! Well, almost knocked her over lmao. Anyway, we all hung out for a while until Jess showed up. I jammed with my beer and ipod as I walked the halls of the hotel! YAY! Jess' ass finally showed up and we all sat outside the doors of the hotel, drinking beer, vodka and orange juice (No officer we are low on Vitamin C... it's just OJ) and dancing, smoking, and having a good ol time.

At about 12:30 Nikki and Vicky showed back up and we all made our way off to our rooms to get some rest.

**August 15th**
We woke up... got around... and walked our happy asses to KFC for lunch. After a quick freshen up, run to rite aid for cigarettes and chap stick, we headed to Callahan's. We were barely out of the car when Heather (RONAGAL) made her way to me to say hi! **Nice to meet you heather**

Once inside I met Bill Bell, and a few other monkey ladies... (Allison). The show started and was AMAZING. The Stevedores are freaking AWESOME live! I love them. And more power to Ben J for playing 4 performances back to back! Gotta love that guy!



After the Stevedores was Tin Tin Can and the Dan Graupner. Tin Tin Can's music sounds SOOO different live... good... just different. Dan Graupner was awesome and rocked out some spencer music for us acoustic style and cut his finger in the meantime. After that, there was a small break before 100 Monkeys took the stage. Jackson was out... but the energy was definitely there. It was very nice to see Ben G, Ben J, and Jerad take on more singing than normal.


I loved it. They did their old music, new music, and even a few Spencer Bell covers, including The Monkey Song (a favorite among fans) Violin (off the new Live & Wasted album) and more. Another favorite was the resurrection of Wing on Fire! Awesome song!



We even had some Uncle Larry on the drums. (See above picture)

We took a quick break, and came back for round two... the much anticipated and SOLD OUT 21+ show. The energy was definitely up! This show was spent listening to music and talking to the bands. Drew and the Medicinal Pen showed up for this show and I had a blast talking to Missy, Anna, and Drew. The girls are hillariously funny!


The show was kicked off with a shot that all the bands took in memory of Spencer and a toast to all the attendees. I spent time out on the back patio and by the parking lot hanging with friends, meeting the bands, and making new friends.


That is Jerad after he tells me he hates Nikki's face. I love him! He might have been bumped up to coolest fucking monkey because later he walked up to Nikki and said... "I hate your face Bitch". BAHAHA!






So to sum it up... it was amazing.... the crowd was hype...


The music was AWESOME.... (

and the final jam session with all the bands was amazing!


And nothing like talking to Jerad to close up the evening!


The ride home was long... and the stay at the airport was horrible... but... I'm home... I have good memories... good friends... and I can't wait to see you all at the next one!

Life and a brief thank you...

I am sure I have a few friends that can agree with me on this. Life is hard! If it were easy we would all be bored. At least that is what I keep telling myself. Even though life is hard, you have to look around and see the good things in life. For example, my daughter is the funniest person in the world. She cracks me up. I can be in the worst mood and she will find a way to make me smile just by raising her eyebrows. Her and her damn facial expressions! I love her to death. Life is normally hard, but it seems like lately it has gotten harder. The economy BLOWS and everyone is struggling. No one has any money and it would be nice to get a break every once in a while. As much as I wish this would happen... it won't. Not for a while anyway. It is suppose to be getting better... but I won't hold my breath.

I just want to say thanks to all my great friends... you know who you are... Nikki, Vicky, Megs, my new buddy Jess, and of course all my monkey ladies... thank you for keeping me sane... if I ever was. I know I can be bitchy and crazy and loud and bossy... emphasis on the bossy... but I love you for putting up with me! I don't know where I would be without you! Love you to death!

I'm leaving on a jetplane...

But I do know when I'll be back again. I FINALLY got my ticket to Maryland to see Nikki, Vicky, and Jeanette. (I think I spell her name wrong every time... sorry girl). I have never been more excited in my life. I will miss my baby, but she will be in great hands!

The world does not know what kind of trouble they are in with all of us together! It might just spontaneously combust! We are gonna have a blast! On top of that... gonna meet up with Megs! WOOP WOOP! Can't freakin wait! Gonna meet some very cool people... hope to meet some of the fabulous people helping out with the Spencer Bell Show on Artists On Demand on Aug. 10th! Hope everyone is tuning it. I talked to Dan Graupner today and he is soooo nice and he can't WAIT for the show. We got Pierce from Tin Tin Can, Drew and the Medicinal Pen, Bill and Deb Bell, and hopefully (CROSS FINGERS) a few more people to... monkey around with!

Anyway I can't wait to see you all! To Nikki & Vicky... OMG! We are finally uniting! I can't wait to poke Vicky in the eye and tackle Nikki! :) So what is this gonna be called... Hyper HotFlash??? LOL! I'll see you soon ladies! MUAH!

And I'm out...

Working my ass off...

I keep telling myself that it will all be worth it in the end. Artists On Demand is going like crazy. We have all kinds of crazy stuff coming up. The biggest event being the Spencer Bell Legacy Concert promotional show we are doing on Aug. 10th. It is going to be HUGE! I am very very excited. Then off course off to Detroit for the actual Spencer Bell Legacy Concert. It is going to be awesome! I can't wait to meet up with my girls! A road trip with Nikki, Vicky, Jeannette, and Elexses... woo hoo!!! Count me in!

Other than that... myself, Nikki, Vicky, and my awesome stepdad have been typing away furiously at our keyboards on the new 100 monkeys fanclub page. It is MUCH MUCH better than before... just taking some time. I know it has taken a few weeks... but the wait will be worth it... I promise! I have taken on a bit more responsibility, but it is fun responsibility and it is for the Monkeys... so it is fun! And I get the perks of feeling so overly special with the title of OFFICIAL Monkey Mod! That's right... Me! LOL!

Anyway... it is 1 am... not too late... but I have to work tomorrow morning. I am off to bed to hopefully dream about monkeys! LOL! I always have the oddest dreams... don't I Nikki?

Alright little ones... I am off... Goodnight!

Colin Healy and the Jetskis @ Hot Topic in Orlando, FL

I love Colin Healy and the Jetskis... and let me clarify! Colin, Harry, Cullen, Tony, and Jon are freaking awesome! I drove an hour to the Festival Bay mall in Orlando so I could see them play at Hot Topic. I made brownies because they said that brownies were awesome and they loved to gorge on them after the shows. So i made 3 dozen brownies and 2 dozen cookies. They loved them BTW. Anyway, so they had moved the show up and Hot Topic apparently didn't get the message so they weren't going to play.

So to be nice, Colin went out to the car and brought us in 2 cd's and the entire band autographed them. I even got them to write I hate your face on the corner. Which is awesome! Then they said they would give us a private concert outside, but Spinlight City came in and they all bombarded the Hot Topic people and they agreed to let them play earlier. While Hot Topic employees were moving their merchandise, we all sat out in the hall and hung out and played. Playing because I had my 17 month old daughter with me. Oh boy was she a handful. I will never forget the stroller again. She kept me running around like crazy. Then she apparently decided that this would be the one time to attach herself to a guy. And of course... she picks Jon, the bassist. He has tattoos on his arms and legs and facial hair. These 2 things are usually things she runs from. But not this time.

She clung to him and laid on his shoulder. Colin and Cullen were laughing as Payton patted him on the back, talked to him, wore his sunglasses, and just plain ol flirted. (She gets that from her mom). He even took pictures on his phone! When he had to go into the store to set up, she ran to the gate that they had lowered and yelled "What you doing? What you doing?" It was cute!

Finally the show was starting and we all went in to listen. Colin and the band opened first. It was the acoustic version. Just Cullen on guitar, Harry on guitar, and Colin singing. Colin sang to Payton during the first part and she kept reaching out for him. Then as they kept playing more songs, Tony jumped in with the tamborine and played. At the last song, Jon and the lead singer of Spinlight City jumped in to help him with some audience interaction. It was a blast.

Then Spinlight City came on and they did amazing. The lead singer sure does have some vocals on him. He was pretty friendly to Payton too. Waved to her and played with her in the hallway. After the show was over it was time to leave. We walked around saying our goodbyes to each guy from both bands. When we got to Jon, Payton instantly wanted him. Instead, he gave her a Colin Healy and the Jetskis toothbrush. She was thrilled. it was bright orange! I shall take a picture and post it later! Overall it was a great night! The band is fabulous and I can not wait until they come back for another show. I will definitely be front row for that!

So after a long tiring day... I am off!

My prince charming got hit by a bus!

I'm having a moment. You know what I am talking about. The moment where you watch a sappy, yet very romantic and awesome romantic comedy and then you have this moment where you think about how you want a guy to sweep you off your feet like that. Everyone says that "your prince charming is out there and that you just haven't met him yet." Well I think mine got hit by a bus! I'm not being negative either... I mean... guys suck! Not all guys. But all the good ones are either A... taken... B... not in my timezone... or C... Gay. None of those do me any good.

Of course, I am going to continue to hold out... but I am not sure it is going to work. I can't wait to get that butterfly in your stomache, can't speak, which you could just hold them all day feeling. It should be available to me too! We shall see!

Peace out girl scout!

That feeling...

You know what feeling I am talking about. That can't eat, can't sleep, reach for the stars, over the fence, world series kind of stuff. (Quote from the movie It Takes Two). There is that feeling you get when you meet eyes with someone and everything around you freezes. You suddenly can not breath. You get a little light headed. You couldn't look away if you wanted to.

Now the thing is, there are different versions. You have that gaze where you just know that person is going to end up being the best friend you have ever had! Then you have the look where you fall in love. Hence the saying "love at first sight". I'm not a real firm believer in love at first site. Now, you also have that animalistic first meet where you just want to rip someone's clothes off and take them wherever you are. I do approve of this! :)

None of these mean you have met your soul mate. I think there is only one way to know you met your soul mate. It's when your eyes meet for the first time, and you can't look away. You can't think of anything else except getting to know that person. You don't know why you have met, or how even, but you know that it feels right. There is no way your body can feel if it is love, friendship, or what-not. You just know it feels right. You know that person is going to be important to you in some way.

I don't think people understand it a lot of the time. You can't know what it feels like until it happens because there is no other feeling like it. I hope everyone gets to feel it. I have not felt it. I have heard people who have... and that is what I am writing on; the information they have shared. I can understand it and I can honestly say I believe in it. There is no other explanation for said circumstances.

To my friend who has experienced this. I hope you get your happily ever after... whether that be an amazing friendship or the greatest love ever known. All I got to say is I better be invited to the wedding... and if you have a baby... NAME IT AFTER ME!

Does the word Vagina gross you out too? Cuz I must say... for some reason... the word Vagina gives me the skivvies. So anyway, I am not writing this to tell you how grossed out I am by that word. I am writing this to tell you that I am utterly amazed by the million different forms of the word Vagina there are. I mean, think about it! I think that people sat down one day around a table with some beers and tried to think up the most vulgar and disgusting ways to verbally ruin a woman's goods.

For instance, let's start with the easy stuff. Or shall I say, the least disgusting and vulgar. Crotch, Cutchie, Girl parts, or even Lady Business. Personally, I like lady business. It makes me laugh. Moving on from that are the most common nicknames. I am talking vajitsa, vajayjay, vag, and crotch. These are popular and thrown around a lot.

Then we start getting into the funny and gross. Honeypot, Susie, Woo Woo... those are cute. Vertical Smile... that is disturbing. Trim, muff, treasure, cooter, sheath, and yani. Those ones... some gross me out... others are just wierd.

Ok... on a MUCH more disturbing note... Food. Yes you heard me. You may be wondering what food has to do with nicknames for vaginas... and let me tell you I thought the same thing, but for some UNGODLY reason people associate the two. So here it is... the vaginal food list!

Bearded Clam (ICK)
Beef Curtains (I'll never look at flank steak the same)

If that didn't change the way you look at a lot of food, I don't know what will. Because I am not sure I can look at a burger the same again.

Another disturbing catergory... animals. I think I would rather my... lady business... be compared to an animal than food. But whatever! So animals... kitty, pussy(cat), camel toe, moose knuckle (DISGUSTING squared!) and a beaver. That is right... our little woodland friends.

And to wrap it up... the most disgusting and gross things you can think of. We'll start off gentle... Pooter and poonany... ugh! Yani... that is just... no words!

AND NOW... the top 3 most disgusting, nasty, vulgar, and gag-worthy names for your vagina!


Tell me... doesn't puddy sound like pudding... and I really do not want to compare my vagina to that. Ok... that is enough. I can not say vagi.... well you know... anymore. It makes me sick! I will see you again soon. In the mean time... Keep your lady business safe!

(BTW... just the fact that I posted this in neon green... now makes me think of fungus)

RIP Michael Jackson

It's all over the news... twitter, myspace, and facebook are going crazy... the news is official... Michael Jackson has died from cardiac arrest early this afternoon at UCLA Medical Center in California. He was only 50 years old.

This news comes as a shock following the death of Ed McMahon on Tuesday 6/23/09 and Farrah Fawcet this morning. The music industry has lost a huge part of its history today. MTV is already streaming music videos and shows he has been on. I am sure the thousands upon thousands of people that bought tickets to his comeback are in tears, not at the idea of paying all that money, but at the thought that they will now never get the chance to see him.

I do not want to overdo this with words... so I will keep it short... RIP Michael Jackson... you are a legand, a memory, and a spot will always be held for you in the music industry. If you thought you were big before... just wait.

Now as for the grim reaper... dude... seriously! Take a freakin chill pill and lay off our celebrities... You got 3 in 2 days... enoughs enough!

What I love...

Some people have given me crap because I spend my free time searching for and booking bands for Nikki and Vicky's show Aritsts on Demand Radio and I do not get paid for it. Let me explain something. I LOVE what I do. My day job is great because it allows a flexible schedule to take care of my daughter and spend a lot of quality time with her. My evening "job" is to have fun. That is how I look at it at least. I get to spend time searching out people who spend their time in life trying to make other people's lifes a little better. I am a lyric person. Finding the right lyrics is inspiring, uplifting, and can change your outlook on something completely.

Today is a perfect example. I was looking for bands to book on the show and I saw one that was from Michigan. I am originally from Michigan, so I decided to take a look. I opened it up and was not all that impressed at first. Then the music played and totally turned me around. I now can not stop listening to it. I am listening to it RIGHT now. They are called To Be Juliet's Secret. ( They apparently sing about love to inspire people. Let me tell you, they have a sick beat and awesome lyrics and they seems like a cool bunch of people in the process.

Now I have come across so many other great bands. The National Rifle, Drew and the Medicinal Pen, Tim Be Told, Colin Healy and the Jetskis... and the list continues. You can check all them out on myspace.

Don't think that the only music out there is the music that you hear on the radio. Some people just haven't gotten to the right place at the right time to be spotted by some big record label. They are still out there. I have found in the past months that it is the smaller unsigned or indie artists that have the best music. It isn't the ones that have been drowned in the label pool of trying to conform to what is "cool". Try it!

Moving freakin sucks! I absolutely hate moving! But again... I am doing it. I have 2 days... and know what... I was given a 3 day warning. That is it. Oh well, I am excited to move onto my next adventure. Gonna be saving some money, helping out my momma, and going to some wicked fucking concerts.

That is probably my most favorite part. I got Awesome ass Spencer Bell concert on August 15th with Nikki and hopefully Vicky. I have kick ass Eyecon weekend with Nikki and hopefully Vicky and The Nove Echo! Can not fuckin wait! Then I have a week back in the big Triple Ripple, Michigan. It has been 3 1/2 years since I went home to Michigan. Been quite a while, but I am excited. My friend Cassie is getting married and I am the bridesmaid. Lots to do... but sooooo excited to do it. I can not wait. Cross your fingers that everything works out and I get to go. WOO HOO!

Well, that is enough of this rambling... Until next time! *bow out gracefully*

A true "I hate your face" moment...

I felt it was only right to share this little tidbit with you all. Jerad Anderson... you know... from 100 Monkeys.. is the coolest person ever! I talked to him on the phone tonight because Nikki is freaking awesome and handed him her phone. We went through the normal hi's and how are you's... but then I asked him for a favor... and he came through beautifully! He told Nikki... "I hate your face." That is right... I got Jerad Anderson to say I hate your face.

That is officially going on the I hate your face list of coolests things ever! Fuckin AWESOME!

THE 'I hate your face' Kristin

How was I to know that a simple phrase would catch on so quickly. Everyone is now refering to me as THE 'I hate your face' Kristin. Even Jonathan Clay said it and has said he is going to continue to say it to people. It is spreading like wildfire. My friend Nichole, who actually said it to me the first time I heard it... is mad... LOL. She loves me. It is not my fault I picked it up and say it NONstop! Ask anyone I associate with. It spills out of my mouth like word vomit!

I even have random people emailing me. It is quite amusing! I got an email from someone who listened to the ArtistsOnDemand show with Jonathan Clay and emailed me wanting to know if this was me! Funny right! I thought so...

Anyway... enough about me... I hate your faces!

Random little blunders...

First off... is blunders a word!? If not... it is today! So moving on... My day was amusing. Nothing really happened... just amused at life. Yesterday I totally dropped the ball when I got an unexpected phone call from a number that probably should have been saved in my phone. It wasn't... I got stuck on stupid. Enough said. But today... I picked the ball back up, brushed it off, and moved on. I rock again!

I am doing something rather amusing right now. Nikki and myself are writing a little something something. It has me laughing out loud and startling my daughter in her sleep. That is good. You would find it amusing. Did you know they have funny drink names? Like... leg spreader and Muff Diver. Uh huh! You heard me. How about a naughty schoolgirl. This is actually very delicious. It is a fruity drink and comes with a lollipop stick out of it. Very nice touch!

Ok... nothing left to ramble about... well, plenty to... but I won't. Four Loko anyone...

A new song... by Megan

My dear friend Megan took a challenge to write a little story using song titles from the awesome 100 Monkeys. She has succeeded and may I say... it is brilliant. Here... for your viewing pleasure... her story!

I was being chased by robot timberwolves in the wasteland of Arizona. I tried to use my plastic shot gun as I did a drunken waltz and found myself in a spaceship. The scientists were waiting with some dude named gus who had a stanky leg handing me a strange diet of apple juice, cake, and, sugar and corn. They allowed me to make a long distance phonecall to my boyfriend who I call my sweet face boo boo kitty fuck before we all became sleeping giants. The next day after having a small lean breakfast and having a smoke we headed to the electric life of Las Vegas. Everyone wanted to build a house made of gold, a strange architecture idea with the money we won at the slots. After that we met an ugly girl, a junkie, and a guy name Orson Brawl who screamed “slow down” at my fast walking. I smiled with my beer in hand as I said “that’s what she said.”

Thank you Megan... that was AWESOME! And thank you Gallie for giving her the wonderful idea!

What does it really mean...

If you are reading this... you are probably aware that I say "I hate your face" a lot. The people closest to me know what it means, but it seems that lately a lot of people are getting offended. So... I thought I would break it down to you.

I hate your face... does not mean I actually hate your face. I hate your face is a term of endearment. It is equivelant to me telling you that I love you. So if you hear me tell you I hate your face... take it as a compliment. It is the best thing I could ever say to you. Do not get offended... do not think I hate you... or your face... and do not think I am calling you ugly. It's simply not true.

And imagine my happiness when I was watching the movie Role Models and one of the characters, out of no where, says "I hate your face". I don't think I have ever been so happy in my life! Just sayin...

Anyway... that is all I have to say. So if you are reading this... I HATE YOUR FACE!


P.S. and by the way... even though I absolutely hate her face... Nikki FAILS at posting on my blog! FAILS I tell you!

God help you...

I am sitting here reading my dear friend Nikki's blog about her thoughts... and concerns... about the crazy weekend at Eyecon that is coming up in September, and a few thoughts crossed my mind.

First off, I must say in response to Nikki's blog, that I believe I will be wearing a sign around my neck that states NO flash photography and NO Videography. I will also be making it known to... certain individuals... that if I end up on ANY youtube or myspace site doing inappropriate, sexual, or provacative things... I will laugh hysterically, while repeating over and over "Oh Shit what have I done."

But as Nikki has said... we are angels and would do no such thing! HAHAHA! In all seriousness, though, I am very much looking forward to black scrunchies... or any color scrunchie for that matter... lots of alcohol, the 'pick your poison' dish, and some great fuckin music! (Fuckin music could be taken in two ways... so let me clarify... some amazing music!)

Here is my warning though! Eyecon has NO idea what they have coming for them. The wrath of Nikki and Kristin is about to be brought down on them at full force! God help you!

The definition of boredom is....

1. to weary by dullness, tedious repetition, unwelcome attentions.

I am bored!

Funny Beer Quotes

I like beer...
Do you like beer?

If you don't... you probably should not read this, because the entire thing is about beer! A few famous quotes... a few funny quotes... a few utterly random quotes. You catch my drift?

"I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they are going to feel all day." ~Frank Sinatra

"24 hours in a day... 24 beers in a case... Coincidence?" ~Stephen Wright

"When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we go to sleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sins. When we commit no sins, we go to heaven. Soooo... lets all get drunk and go to heaven!" ~Brian O'Rourke

"Drinking beer doesn't make you fat, it makes you lean.... Against bars, tables, chairs and poles."

"A finer beer may be judged with only one sip... but it's better to be thoroughly sure."

"People who drink light beer don't like the taste of beer... they just like to pee a lot."

"I drink to make other people interesting."

Top 10 Reasons The Nova Echo Rocks!

The Nova Echo! They are an absolutely extrodinary band! I don't want to waste words on a long explanation!

Here it is...


10. They're hot! Caleb is gorgeous... the guys are freaking fine... That's it!

9. They know how to party! On the interview on BlogTalkRadio they said they drank 2 kegs worth of beer... and might I mention four loko...

8. They are the funniest group of guys ever! Penis sheith anyone? Edible underwear? Pineapple flavored jelly bellys? That's what I though.

7. They eat Chinese while doing an interview! Chinese food is delicious, I agree. Only they can pull off actually stuffing their faces while talking on the radio! And then read their fortunes to us. (Don't forget to add 'in bed' to the end of it guys'.)

6. They rename very well known restaurants FuckDonalds! Can you figure out which restaurant this was?

5. They love swearing just as much as we do! The word fuck, shit, damn, ass, or hell comes out of their mouths at least once every sentence! And they say nipple a lot! HAHA

4. Caleb tells our wonderful friend Vicky he wants to touch her words.... HAHAHA! Her accent is seductive! LMAO!

3. They have a song with no meaning... but want the fans to voice their thoughts on what it means. EPIC!

2. Of course we have to mention the fact that the music is AMAZING! Catchy beats that make you want to dance and romantic lyrics that make your heart melt! That Caleb is a bit of a hopeless romantic I'd say!

1. They are FUCKIN AMAZING! Nuf said!

I would like to thank Nikki for helping me make this ever wonderful list of brilliant reasons The Nova Echo is the shit! I can say... they have these two fans for LIFE!

You've Done It Now...

Oh Kristin...

This is going to be dangerous LOL.

For your viewing pleasure...I'm on a boat.

Saddest Movie moments!

So... I was sitting here... watching cartoons with my daughter... and decided I wanted to make a list of sad movie moments. Not just sad ones... but ones that make you cry like a baby! Maybe I am more emotional than most. Just a heads up though, there will be some funny ones thrown in!

1. Titanic: "I'll never let go." Now no matter how much you say you want to not be sad at this part... it sucks! They just found each other and now she not only had to loose him, but she had to throw his ass into the ocean and let him sink into oblivioun. I mean, honestly! That sucks!

2. Armagedon: This movie was sad all the way through. I cried like... 20 times! The worst, by far, was the part where her dad called in from the little machine to let his daughter known he wasn't coming home. I mean... I don't know about you... but I could contain myself I was crying so hard! When she said, "I said I didn't want to be like you, but I am like you." I lost it. Sad shit! The other part that always made me cry was at the end when Ben Afleck gave the guy the patch... That was sad. I don't know why... but it was.

3. The Notebook: Now this is the ULTIMATE chick flick, but guys seem to like it too when you can talk them into watching it. But how sad was it when they fought outside her parents house after coming home late. She told him to go.... then to stay... then got upset when he went. I mean... I love chick flicks... and that was priceless.

4. Another Titanic one: This one... more of a funny one... but still sad. Now tell me, what woman in her right mind would throw a gem the size of The Heart of the Ocean into the water!? Seriously... I almost cried! At least pawn that shit! I mean COME ON!

5. Ghost:I shouldn't have to say more... but I will. The part where he dies... that sucked. But more so the part at the end when he walks off into the light. Seriously! I mean... the director of this movie hit the nail on the head.

6. A Walk to Remember: Now I do not care who you are... this is sad. I mean... how come bad stuff always happens to good people. There is not reason for it... it just is! That is it! But when she dies in this movie... It sucks! But I guess it ends on a happy note! The kid went off, made something of his life, and still visits his father in law. That is awesome!

7. Pearl Harbor: Now this movie kind of made me angry. You can't just date one guy, you think he dies, you date his best friend, he dies, so you go back. That is a little tacky! But anyway... it was sad at the end when Ben was holding Josh (Yes I know that is not their names in the movie) and he says, "You're gonna be a father." And Josh replies, "No, you are." I cry every time. It doesn't matter if I watch it, rewind it, and watch it again. It gets me every time!

So I think I have shared enough of my sad movie moments with you. Leave your opinions if you want... if not... doesn't hurt me none! Tune in next time!

Pointless information!

Yes... this post is full of pointless information. I got bored... looked up some websites... and this is just a few of the little tidbits of information I have managed to dig up. Enjoy!

13 people per year die from a vending machine falling on them.

At any one time, 0.7% of the world's population is drunk at the same time.

It's against the law in Chicago to eat in a place that is on fire.

In a lifetime, the average driver will honk 15,250

96% of people put the peanut butter on first when making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Each year, Americans throw away 25 trillion Styrofoam cups.

75% of all raisins eaten by people in the US are eaten at breakfast

5% of people who use personal ads for dating are already married.

Now Please tell me... When On earth will I ever need to know ANY of that? I love having a mind full of useless shit. Someday I know someone is going to be talking to me and say, "I wonder how many people in the world put peanut butter on their bread before the jelly." And I will say "A HA! I know the answer".

And that's a wrap!


All things ME!

I feel it is only necessary to introduce myself! My name is Kristin... People call me Kris, Kristi, and an occasional Ristin... hence my blog account! I am crazy, erratic, bitchy, loving, wonderful, angry, and maybe sometimes a little overwhelming. I am very outgoing, love meeting new people, and laughing like crazy at funny and stupid shit. I swear a lot so be on the lookout! I love music, so you will probably hear a lot about it. I LOVE 100 Monkeys, Spencer Bell, The Nova Echo, and Akon. I know he is odd in that grouping, but what can I say. I love opinions, but let me tell you if you say the wrong thing, I will not hesitate to put you in your place. I am horrified of spiders, snakes, closed spaces, and clowns. My worst fear is to be locked in a box on a bridge with a clown covered in spiders. *SHUDDERS* Anyway, I love movies, and people, and beer, and liquor, and... well you get my drift. I have a beautiful daughter who is my world. You like me... you like her. End of discussion! Well, I think that is enough for now. If I didn't scare you away... keep reading!
