Join us in standing up for reproductive health and education. Planned Parenthood, the organization that delivers reproductive health care, sex education and information to millions of people worldwide, has come under fire in the U.S. lately, with many politicians on both state and federal level seeking to end funding (and in a few cases succeeding).

During the month of May, you can send a specially designed Planned Parenthood vgift to your friends to help support this cause. (And if you need someone to send it to, frank is always happy to receive gifts!) There are three variations ($1, $5 and $10) for you to choose from, but they'd all look good on your profile when your friends know that you stand by something so important.


Thank you all for your help in our support for Planned Parenthood. This promotion ends June 1, 2012; LiveJournal is not affiliated with Parent Parenthood. For more information about Planned Parenthood, please visit: http://www.plannedparenthood.org/

I did not get the job.

After freaking out all week about it, expecting a phone call either Monday or Tuesday, I got nothin. Instead, I was browsing LinkedIn last night and happened to check out their company page. And at the bottom it had recent news and one was "New Editorial Assistant" and obviously, it was not me. So, I had a bit of a freakout while I tried to convince myself that wasn't true and it was probably an old one, but I clicked on this HOBAG's profile and it said Nov 2011-present. And after I let that sink in, I tried to call my mom. No answer. So, I texted Robby and I felt really bad because he was out with people (granted, he said they were insanely boring, but still) and I didn't want to bug him, but I needed to talk to him or my mom, soooo. He called me cause he was worried, and after bawling to him for a bit, he gave me his nice boyfriend pep talk, which was calling them assholes and calling me awesome, so that was needed and appreciated.

This morning I got a letter from them. A LETTER. Dated 11/7. So, they knew they weren't going to choose me on Monday and instead of fucking calling me and telling me, they sent a goddamn form letter. I know that the one lady, who I met with all three times, probably wanted to pick me. She wrote a little note that said, "Should you find the time for freelance work, please let me know" and included her card. So, at least someone there wanted me there. Ugh though, seriously. The only thing this other girl has going for her is that she worked for the Columbia College newspaper. BIG WOOP. I know that looks good on your resume, but college newspapers are SOOO SHITTY. And that's why I never worked for the Daily Iowan. I would read it every morning and find 3857289357 spelling/grammar/etc mistakes. Not to mention when I wrote for the Daily Iowan magazine, they changed pretty much everything I wrote.

But yeah, this sucks a big bag of dicks and I'm really disappointed and pissed. This really was perfect for me, considering my skill-set. And I don't know if I'm going to find something similar out there. Or if I can finagle the excuses at work to schedule more interviews. At least work will be slowing down in a month, so it won't be quite so stressful. I just really wanted to get out of here and do something relevant.

So, yesterday was definitely one of the most exciting and coolest days! I've had this silly joke about Robert Schwartzman being my husband since 8th grade and well, I've loved Rooney since then too. And so I magically scored an interview with him for theMAGAZINE(ok)! :o

I went to the House of Blues and chilled in the lobby for a while. Then, the stage manager lead everyone upstairs. I told her I was there to do an interview. And she was all, "Uhh, I don't know if there's time for that." And I said, "Well, I talked to Robert the other day and he was cool with it." So, we (like 7 of us) went up. Everybody but Robert was doing their tune-ups/sound check. Stage manager lady gave everyone a free Wild One EP and a shirt! Yay! Then, Robert popped out and I guess he recognized me cause he waved at me! (And I can tell it was at me cause I was standing several feet from everyone else.) And then they played a couple songs for us. She went up to ask him if he had time do an interview and he was all, Totally! And waved again. He disappeared, then came out of a secret door and said hi to everyone that was there.

Then, he came over to me and he was like, "Let's doo eeet." (Literally, he said it like that, rofl.) And some chicks stared daggerz at me as he whisked me away. We went to the bar area (and he got me a stool down all gentlemenly like, aww), then we decided it would be too noisy with the other bands doing soundcheck. Oh, and he was all like, I can totally hold your voice recorder if that's cool. So nice. So, we went upstairs to one of those private balconies. And we were sitting like really close. It was crazy, like a centimeter apart. Basically, his arm was like leaning against my leg, lol. And we did the interview. I felt like a total idiot and kept saying stuff like, "Sweet!" and "Awesome!" I got a bit more relaxed after a while and started having sort of like a conversational interview. Like, we lolled about his fluffy purple coat in his SOLOBOB video. And then we relocated AGAIN to the dressing room and chilled there on a couch for the last few questions.

At the end I was like, "Hey, can I be a fangirl for a minute and take a picture?" And he said, "Sure, do you have a camera?" Lol...silly boy. And he decided to take it because he had a longer arm, rofl. And he took 2 to make sure it looked good. And then, he helped me find my way out. I said, "Thanks for letting me interview you!" He said, "Yeah, thanks for finding me!" :D

SO YEAH, WHOA. SURREAL. I am not doing this justice, but it was amazing. He was so chill and I managed to keep my cool, lol. This really was just.....whoa. It sounds very simple when I write it out, but yes......wow. I got a bit flustered with my words a couple times, but I was good. I'm sure he knew I was nervous, but I was all, Woo I'm excited to see you guys--first time evaaa. And he was all, cool!

Anyway, I chilled until the doors opened. Got my photo pass. Got to the front row. I enjoyed the two opening bands. Crash Kills was very musically talented. I was quite impressed. And Tally Hall came out, they were A-DORABLE. <3 I must have their album! The lead singer looked exactly like Logan from Veronica Mars & the other lead singer looked like Orlando Bloom & James Franco's love child aka HOT. They also used a megaphone, kazoo, and ukulele during their songs. Cute, lol.

Then, ROONEY came out! It was very exciting. Robert came running out with the giant Rooney flag. They played ALL of my favorite songs. They were awesome live. And soooo much cuter in person. It was just so fun. It's always hard to describe a concert that you're just like "omgamazzinggg", but it was great. And kind of a dream come true cause I've been such a fan of them for so long. <3 I lol'd cause Robert messed up the lyrics during "Sorry, Sorry". They all lol'd too. It was cute. Also, Ned, the drummer, sang a song, while Robert drummed, Exciting! I love hearing songs I've listened to for ages played live because now I have different memories of the songs. And I can imagine them playing now! Woo! I also took video of "Blueside", "Popstars", and "When Did Your Heart Go Missing?" :D I shall upload them when the magazine comes out!

Sooooo, yes! What a day! Oh man. No words can really describe this, despite the fact I wrote this up. Doesn't do it justice, guys. Srsly.
