Hitting The [White] Carpet...

So being a little sister has its perks. You always have bigbrother to protect you from the assholes in the world (i mean, just saying you have an older brother is enough warning for any smartass wanting just a POA..) You always have someone to talk to about drinking, smoking, tattoos.. and well, you always have a date to the red carpet. Yes, I just said red carpet. Well, in this case it was the white carpet for the premiere of Kate Beckinsale's new movie, WHITEOUT.

Mike and I attended the screening on Wednesday September 9th at the Mann Village Theatre in Westwood.. It was the whole shabang. Papparazzi, designer dresses and heels, limos, free popcorn and yes, Kate herself. The movie was good (and I'm not just saying that because of the experience that went with it) It had an original story and kept you guessing the entire time. Shocking twist at the end too. I very much enjoyed it. The only thing I definitely took note of during the movie was the fact that I was sitting in the same room as the woman on the huge screen in front of me. This was strange...

Ahh I know what you're thinking. Katie, How in the hell did you manage to get invited to this kinda thing anyway? Well, my big brother is married to a 'somebody' and she knows lotsa big names in the business. That's all i'm gonna say..
And now you're wondering If my big brother and I are importante enough to get invited to the Afterparty...

We are.

This is where I met Kate. Yup. Shook her hand, exchanged 'nice-t0-meet-you's'
She's stunning in person. I was almost speechless. Best Night in a long time! :D

Who has never killed an hour? Not casually or without thought, but carefully: a premeditated murder of minutes. The violence comes from a combination of giving up, not caring, and a resignation that getting past it is all you can hope to accomplish. So you kill the hour. You do not work, you do not read, you do not daydream. If you sleep it is not because you need to sleep. And when at last it is over, there is no evidence: no weapon, no blood, and no body. The only clue might be the shadows beneath your eyes or a terribly thin line near the corner of your mouth indicating something has been suffered, that in the privacy of your life you have lost something and the loss is too empty to share."

I feel like writing but where to begin? I'm a bit scatter-brained tonight (as usual)... So many thoughts/ideas/pictures/links to be shared!

I wish I had thousands of dollars to spend to go on thrift store adventures.

I want a boy with scruff, gorgeous tattoos, a sexy name and indie rocker style.
(If you can't picture this perfect man of mine, well, here you go ...

I'm going to wear heels tomorrow. just because i want to.
sidenote- i like lower case i's better than capital ones.

I want to go to Instant Gratification, an art exhibit in Fullerton this weekend.

I want to swim in the ocean before the week is over.

The title of this post makes me happy.

I love the song 'soft' by Kings of Leon, its so perfectly sexy & dirty.
Just like ^him. :}

It's midnight and I can hear a strange bird outside my window...

I just read a Rose for Emily by William Faulkner. Morbidly lovely.

i thoroughly enjoy the heck out of the five lines and seven words below:

Archaic lady terms

I shall use one tomorrow. bringin it backk.

Well now that i've sufficiently confused, whip lashed, and scrambled your brain, i'm off to bed.

What a weekend.
Lots of thoughts circling my head tonight, hopefully they stop circling come morning and finally go down that mental drain. .

I just finished a m.a.s.s.i.v.e project.
See, for the past oh I dunno, lets say year or more, a hurricane has hit my room and closet multiple times a day. multiple. I finally finally finally conquered the natural disaster site that is my closet. It took a harsh attitude and lots of "goodbye dear, lovely shirt" moments but after two huge heaping piles of clothes later, my closet is now wholly Katie and not the 15, 16, 17, and 18 year old me squished, jammed and thrown into one tiny, rectangular space. I also got rid of my biggest dislike in all of the world- wire hangers. I absolutely hate them. More than you hate the girl your ex boyfriend cheated you on with. Yes, that much hatred.

School starts tttttomorrowwww. I am both excited and dreadful, if that's even possible. Maybe I'm more "ehh" towards it. Like "ehh, it won't be that bad" and "ehh, I could use another summer right now" .. It was a good summer.
I'm taking Philosophy, Art History, Psychology and Literature this semester .. All subjects i've always been interested in. My dad called me the next Aristotle when I rattled off my scholary subjects ... haha. We'll see how I fair.

August 22nd 2009..
I took the little brother, Kelly to his very first concert. I must give my self a pat on the back for it was the KINGS OF LEON. His favorite, my favorite. Perfect band for a first concert. I bought the tickets six months ago for his sixteenth birthday. Kelly was absolutely ecstatic. I loved watching him sing the songs and dance his rocker dance. We got really great tee shirts (expensive, but so worth it) and I even let him sip on my beer. haha. I felt like the world's greatest sister.
KOL are absolutely amazing live, none of that "only good in the studio" nonsense that a lot of people listen to.

We had really interesting seats, they viewed the stage from the left side and were pretty darn close. I definitely have never seen a concert from that angle so it was really cool. They played a mixture of songs both old and new; the crowd was awesome and the kings rocked. . The encore was a set of 5 songs! I think one of my favorite things in life (besides sleeping) would be going to a good show. This was one of em. I wish I could go and do it all over again.

So it's 1:04 am, thoughts are still circling. I'm in the process of burning a new cd for my drive to school tomorrow.

Ah, to be distracted. it's 1:40 now. Bed? yes.
