anticipation has a habit to set you up for disappointment

Ever since the Arctic Monkeys concert on Sunday, I've been very very obsessed. I feel completely in love with Alex Turner and Jamie Cook at the show, and now it's almost as if I have an addiction. Whenever I listen to their music (which is a lot but I'm trying to cut back) I get filled with this ecstatic joy, but as soon as I stop, it's a deep depression. I'm going through an Arctic Monkeys withdrawel now, listening to "No Diggity" by Blackstreet to try to not think about them. But every now and then, I go "well, just playing a couple songs won't hurt" and then I'm right back where I started.
Top 10 Reasons (out of 10000000000000) Why Alex Turner/Jamie Cook And I Could Never Be
1. They are way way out of my league
2. I have never met them.
3. Why date me when they can date skanks like Katie Downes (who I had to Google out of jealousy)?
4. They are geniuses and I am not.
5. They are so sexy I would not be able to carry on a conversation, I would simply jump them everytime I saw them.
6. They live in Britain and I live here. In Canada.
7. I have no idea how I would meet them.
8. What kind of guy is attracted to a girl who writes obsessive Internet posts about them? Creeeepy.
9. I have never met them.
10. Alex Turner was quoted as saying he had a crush on Beyonce. Clearly, a witty and sarcastic joke, but if it was true....the dream is over.

Ohh I totaly know how you feel, you'll get over it...
Besides. Is it on purpose that # 2 and 9 are the same??

haha, the funny thing for me is that no matter how fantastic the concert was I'm usually a little sick of the artist right after and i don't listen to them for awhile. this happens especially when the concert sucked, i am almost pissed off at the band that i reguse to support them- haha i haven't really listened to the killers since last may...oy. but then again, if i was actually growing sick of the artist before the concert the concert can give me 2nd wind- like snow patrol :) but good luck to you. you really make me wanna become an addict too, haha we can start a support group! "hi i'm (molly/jayne) and i'm addicted to arctic monkeys" "hi (molly/jayne)" haha

i love the tag- arctic addict hehe

They are geniuses and I am not.

You shall come to england, we shall go to sheffield together and find them (i've never been there but i dont suppose it that big). Simple. And then you can confess your undying love for Alex as he is by far the sexiest one and I will get them to introduce me to some of their sexy rockery type friends and it will all be fine and dandy.

Francisca said...

I SO UNDERSTAND YOU! Their music is genial and.....LOVE ALEX. God, can he more sexy with his geek looks ? In his concert I was like " Marry me, please ? "
