Target, are you serious?:
First day tomorrow, and working 8 hours a day for 7 days in a row. Why? I don't know. I put in my max. number of hours as 25, but of course they almost double it. I should have said something when I got the scheduale but I didn't because I'm basically an idiot.
Haven't eaten in almost 10 hours. No food, no money & my mom wonders why I never eat.

Reel Big Fish = AMAZING!:
Yeserday I popped my Warped Tour cherry! My friend Ethan plays guitar for Katy Perry, so I got to go backstage. I wasn't ever really planning to go but Reel Big Fish was playing so I HAD to. Everytime they come around I can't make it.
Let me start with Katy Perry. I really didn't know who she was until my friend told me he was playing for her. I heard her song once but I didn't know who sang it and I HATED it (how the hell did it become the number one song in America?)So I get on her bus, which has a huge picture of her face on the side of it, and she's sitting there in the front with this HUGE hat on like she's about to go to the Kentucky Derby. My friend starts to introduce me and she COVERS her face and mumbles, "Hi...nice to meet you." Before she hid her face I got a chance to see it, and let me tell you, it's covered with acne. Was there really a need to cover her face? It's not like I care, I thought it was funny. If she didn't cover her face I wouldn't have even mentioned it. After that, she left to a hotel, and didn't return until she had to play 8 hours later.
So my friend and I walk around, he introduces me to bands that I don't know, and catch some bands play that I also have never heard of. Then we go back to where all the buses are and we go on Reel Big Fish's bus. I'm freaking out but trying to remain cool because they're my favorite band EVER. Ryland and Scott were on the bus and were about to practice because they were playing in less than an hour.
When it's time for them to play, we go to the stage and I stood on the side of it, so excited. I have a smile on my face from ear to ear, I'm ready. They start to play and i'm so excited. They start out with the song, "Sell Out," which I LOVE. So basically the whole show I just dance around and sing (badly), and before I left the stage, I stole a guitar pik.
Afterwards, I walk off the stage and Ryland asks me what I thought, and all I could say was, "AMAZING," and mentioned that they didn't play my favorite songs! But they only had a 30 minute set, and I think there was only about 7 songs. At this point, I've met everyone in RBF.
Then, we go back to Katy's tourbus. Ethan goes off to the bathroom and Katy's tour manager starts talking to me. This our conversation:
Tour Manager: "How old are you?"
TM: "Are you telling me the truth?"
Me: "Yes, why?"
TM: "Because you look really young."
Me: "I have my drivers license if you don't believe me.."
TM: "Oh, well i'm not the one who would be going to jail."
I felt totally disrespected. I had a huge smile on my face beforehand and at this point I'm just upset. I didn't know what to say, she caught me off guard and made me feel like I was common trash and a groupie. I've known Ethan for years, and we are JUST friends. I couldn't believe someone would say that to someone, and I told Ethan about it later and he thought it was totally disrespectful.
After that whole mess, it started to rain. When I say rain, it was POURING and there was a tornado warning. I wanted to go home because there was talks about the show was going to be cancelled and I wanted to get home while it was still light out and before the storm got really bad. However, 20 minutes later the rain stopped.
After that, we ran off to Reel Big Fish's tour bus. Aaron, Scott & Ryland were sitting in the front and we all were talking. Most of the time, quoting South Park. Aaron offered me a popsicle and I thought he was kidding, but he wasn't. So, I had a popsicle. They all signed a CD I brought from my brother's collection. I thought it would be nice to surprise him with it. Everyone was really nice. Then, they went to sign some stuff at their merch booth since they couldn't finish it earlier because of the rain.
I go with them because I wanted to get a t-shirt. So we walked over there and I watched them sign things, and took a picture of Ryland with a fan with the kid's phone. I felt like a lackey, but whatever I didn't care. Then, Ryland was awesome and gave me a free t-shirt. Then, Ethan steals me away and we go to get something to eat.
While we were eating, I heard that Cisco Adler was there. For those of you who don't know who he is, he dated Mischa Barton, and there are pictures of him and his huge ass saggy balls all over the internet. I didn't get to meet him, I saw him, but I didn't say anything to him. I'd be afraid I'd just stand there and laugh uncontrollably at him.
Fast forward to 8:15 when Katy Perry went on. I stood there while she played, tired, hot, rained on. I don't know any of her songs at all, just "Kissed a Girl," well - a little of it anyway. I couldn't wait to get home and sleep, I've been walking around all day, I just wanted to relax and go to bed. After she played I said my good-byes and left. It took me 2 hours to get out of the parking lot. During that time I'd been flipped off by people who cut me off in line, and almost ran over 3 scene girls. Guys were running around shirtless in front of cars, it was rediculous. Typical 15 year old scene behavior.
More happened but It's too much to write about. I had a great time.
