matty_b0y, I love you so much.
Sunday, we went to Sundance in Park City, just a sort of spur of the moment thing, which was way awesome.
We got there & got all of our stuff up to the condo, which Matt's friend/ex-coworker had for the week, and then decided to go walk around downtown.
We walked around, didn't really see anyone cool.
Then again, that's a typical Sunday in Utah,.. everything was just sorta blah.
We went into a bar, which I was able to just walk into.. no ID, dadadad, sat down, Matt tried to get me to drink a beer (blech!), and no one cared!
We got to the Queer Lounge! We just walked right in, didn't have to show ID, nothing!
Open bar, gays & lesbians, everything! I had the time of my life!
Before I started really drinking, me & Matt just sat around and talked to the DJ, asking him if he was going to play any Tori, and he said he was going to later!
We got to drinking.. me with my screwdriver & Matt with whatever he felt like having at the moment..
Soon, we were drunk off our asses! I had never been that drunk before in my entire life, and I don't think I will ever do it again, unless I'm there next year (haha!). Matt fell in like with a guy, so he was off trying to get him, and I was just sitting there, enjoying myself & stuff & this guy walks up & starts to talk to me.
His name is Chad Newman, he is one of the coolest people I have ever met. Ever.
We were both about the same level of drunkness & I know I was annoying as fuck! The DJ started up Professional Widow mix & I just sat there & said (over & over) OMG OMG I LOVEEEE TORI!!! YEAH!! and Chad goes "Yep, she's amazing alright!". That conversation lasted about half an hour.. and that's mostly all we said. He also gave me this little invite to his movie, Sea to Shining Sea, and told me to bring Matt. Matt soon came over to talk anyway, so, we all just sat and talked.
Oh my God.. these people were sooo fucking nice! The bar tenders were all so fun, and the other people we met from Key West rocked the fuck on!
All I remember, aside from what I've already written, is that I made an ass out of myself, as did Matt, I danced.. which I never do, to Hey Ya (they played it 2 times right at the end) -- Chad described my dancing as 'dancing like a crazy woman' -- me & Matt kissed a few times, haha, uhm.. the way home.. that was a tough walk! I could barely fucking stand, let alone WALK up hill!
Some stuff happened on the way home, which, if Matt writes about, then you will know.. but if not, then I'm not gonna say.. coz it was akward today (semi) when it was brought up by someone (it's later in the story, so just wait!!).
Woke up to the worst hang over ever.
Marty saved me with Tylenol.
Janie & Erica came down and we met them at 4 at The Yarrow Hotel. We went to Chad's movie, which was amazing.
It's called Sea to Shining Sea & it was about Key West & how they had made a pride flag to stretch across the entire island (about a mile and a quarter).
They had little interviews with locals, an interview with the guy who made the original pride flag (I forget his name, it's written somewhere, I'll post it when I'm able to read in the light again tomorrow morning), stuff like that. It was awesome, I loved it so much!
After, they had the little socialness going on.. I ate Konck (or however you spell it), which was really good! We met the maker of the flag, and some others from Key West, they are the coolest, most down to Earth people ever! You wouldn't even believe it.. they were amazing!
After that, we were all going to the lobby & Janie stops and goes "I think that's Paris Hilton & Nick Carter!!" so we all stopped & looked, and sure enough, it was the hoe with a former Backstreet Boy!
Matt went & asked if he could get a picture, but Nick said to hold on, so Matt just walked back out.. blah blah, we stood around, then Matt got brave and just went to the door of the bar & points his camera @ the 2 & says "SAY CELEBRITY!" all cheesy & snaps a picture/pisses them off, he gets the film back tomorrow, so, I'll post the picture! =D
The rest of the night was spent in search of another party, which we never found.
We did meet Cory Basset, from Punk'd, and he invited us to a private party for the next night, which was cool. He's really cool, yeah!
Me & Erica saw a man fall on the way home, it ruled.
Oh yeah! We also took sooo many pins from this one place, I'll take pictures of them & if you guys want any, I'll send them to you for free! There are some pretty cool ones!
We also watched some lame ass movie called Man with a Van, it sucked.
Later, Matt Stam called Janie & made her feel guilty because it's his birthday today.. and he wasn't here, and so blah blah, Matt K. knows how pissed off I was about that, I don't need to really write about it. I'll just say that I wanted to kick his ass for making Janie feel like he did.
Woke up a few times, got up officially at around noon.
Janie & Erica had left around 10 to go get Matt Stam.. so they weren't there when we woke up.
We got going around 1, just walked around downtown for a while, then went back to the condo.
We waited around, sorted my pins/beads/everything.. watched some TV, then headed back downtown to meet up with Janie, Erica & Matt S, so we could go to that little party we'd been invited to last night. We got down there & they said it didn't start til 7, so we just hung out at the Queer Lounge and stuff.
I got some stickers, some postcards (mostly just movie promos), and this one especially made me happy, a little movie promo for something Maggie Gyllenhall (I can't spell!) is in.. but unfortunately, had run a couple nights before I knew about it.. but oh well, there's a fun little story about her coming up anyway.
As we were leaving, we got a little necklace thingy with a 'badge' on it, and we could write our names on it, and it was for the Queer Lounge, so I wrote Karen Walker on it, instead of my name, haha.
We walked into the other part of the lounge and sat down/talked/whatever..
5:30 came around & they started to play the Sea to Shining Sea movie again, so we sat and watched it again, which was even better this time.
Janie/Erica/Matt S left to go to there little party around 6:15, but me & Matt stayed and finished the movie.
After it was over, some people who had helped with the film got up & talked, and this one guy, Chad (different Chad than before) got up and told a story that really almost made me cry..
He was talking about the thing that had happened to Matt on Sunday on the way home, but didn't like, mention names (coz he didn't know who he was). But, I'll let Matt write about it, if you choose to, before I say stuff.. coz I don't wanna be .. mean [?].
It just shows that people can be so freaking amazing even if they don't know you.
After the talking was done, Matt went & talked to Chad & I walked around a little bit, then decided to go sit by them.
Soon, Matt, Janie & Erica came back in & were like 'omg.. we met Andre 3000!' and showed us his autograph.. and I didn't really care that much.. even though I think that Outkast is great.
They left again, so I sat there still.. yay.
We talked to a lot of people from Key West again, the same people from the day before, and then things started to shut down, so we went to go find the others & try to get into that party.
We got there, stood in line, Janie pointed out that Maggie Gyllenhall was there (I didn't see her at all..), and we got up to the front, got our ID's out, found out it was 21 and over.. so we went back to the side walk & they left for home.
I went back down to the little gate to see if I could see Maggie.. and it took me a while, and she stood up & came over by the gate thing and talked to this lady, and I was like "JESSIKUH, JUST FUCKING SAY HI TO HER!", so I did when she got down talking, and she gave me a hug.
If you guys even knew how badly I'd love to marry her, you'd see why that was so great for me! =D I almost peed.
Anyway, after that, I went to find Matt & Marty, which I did.. they were back at the lounge.
Matt was gonna help clean up so I decided to help too, it ended up being really fun actually.
We cleaned & set stuff up for something tomorrow.. Matt sort of lost his phone, clean clean clean, talk talk talk, etc.
Matt talked to/hugged that kid he liked (Bryan), and we were off to get his phone.
We went to the condo to get all of our stuff first, like, clothes, all of the stuff we'd collected, etc.
One of the bar tenders, Wendy, had it Matt's phone with her @ the Yarrow, so we went & got it.
Then, took a bus back to downtown to see if we could find Maggie again & maybe get a picture of her, but when we got there, she wasn't outside anymore, so we just went back to the bus, then to Matt's car, and then we made our way home.
-The ride home-
It was like we were leaving from a different state.. it was so much different than Ogden, and even Salt Lake (for me atleast).
Matt said how he gets depressed after coming home from vacations, and yeah.. I do too (except Cali last year.. I was happy to be home), I had the time of my life, and being with my best friend the whole time added to that (and probably was the only reason I had so much fun). No offense, because I love Janie & Erica like crazy, but if I had just been with them, I don't think I would've had half as much fun as I did. I loved it!
We stopped at Del Taco in SLC, which is the best one I've had, and continued on home.
We stopped @ Wal*Mart in Riverdale so he could drop his film off & we saw Kristi O & Britany Bishop, and took some pics with them & some random people.
We dropped the film off & then left.
I got home around midnight.. and it's so different here.
My dog is pissed at me.. because I was gone.
My mom & grandma both thought that me and Matt were like, going off to get married, so tomorrow will have some entertainment in it when I show them 'the ring' (the cheap one Matt gave me like.. 2 weeks ago), haha, yeah!
I'll post some pics tomorrow after Matt sends them to me.
God, he took a horrible picture of me.. haha.
I loved it so much!
I also learned A LOT of stuff about gay people, and the community, it was great!
I sometimes do with I was a lesbian, just so I could be with these great people the way the .. real lesbians, and gay men, are, y'know?
It was a really great experience, and, I realllly want to go down next year.
Anyway, I have some stuff to do, and sleep to get to, so I'll update again tomorrow!!!
IT SUCKS TO BE HOME!
