Omg.. So I’m back from my trip to Houston, and one thing for sure is that I’m tired and sore, but I’m staying up a bit to find out some things from a friend and to write a review of the whole trip. XD Cause.. I’m bored. >_>;
So Aud came over Saturday. We were thinking we were going to leave that day, and be on the road and in Houston by either that night or by early the next morning, and boy were we dead wrong. Later that day we called Kitty’s mom since we missed the call on Friday. She told us that we’d be leaving around noon the next day. NOON. We had to be in line at four!!!! Around that time we were mad and we wanted to say something, but we knew it would be rude, so we didn’t.
Aud ended up staying over that night and we went to work with my mom, eventually mellowing out over the whole plan setup. My mom said next time she’d drive us, which probably would have been better in the end. The next day we got up at eight ( We planned nine. XD ) and got up and watched some tv to help wake us up. We were gonna take showers, but my mommy was sleepy so we let her sleep. Instead, we got dressed and then went to wake her later on about ten-ish, giving her an hour to wake up. I made her coffee at 10:30 and then we left and were on our way to Kitty’s house.
Now let me say this. Kitty was not ready. o_o She was disorganized and we left the house at 12:30. I’ll skip the driving part. That would be very pointless to add into the whole review, now wouldn’t it? XD
So then we got to their friend’s house around 3:30!!!! No f-ing way. We still had 30 minutes to drive to the Meridian. >< So we waited for directions and blah blah and then around 3:55 we left again towards Chinatown, Houston. XD I never knew they had one, but it was lame... Anyways.. >_> Back to the story. We kept circling around looking for the Meridian and Aud called Totchi for directions. She told us and we did find it. The line was longer than we wanted. We had planned spending the day there and then getting to the front of the line with the people we planned to meet up with. We never met up with them and we didn’t get to the front. We weren’t in the back either. I’d say center..
We waited two to three hours for the opening and when it did we got excited. Earlier we had bought pre-order CDs in hope of going backstage, but we failed! T___T;; We tried though, but we only got false hope. It’s okay though.. We were able to see them. Sorta..
We got inside and we were gonna get the merchandise but we waited on that and went inside the back with our new friends from Kansas we met. They were cool. XD We have no pictures of this concert though, sadly. And inside the place were the stage was nice except for one thing... THERE WAS A F-ING POLE IN THE CENTER OF THE STAGE! We didn’t complain, since the other two bands were boring and unimportant. XD But we did want at the front since everyone was short and there were taller people near the front, and they were like six foot something and could’ve spared a few room for some short people who couldn’t see over their heats. -_-
We tried to work to the front and we got pretty closer to the center, but the “wave” would shift us apart either forward or backward. I was one of the one’s who got forward, while poor Aud had to get out before she passed out. So G.D.S. started finally and everyone screamed as loud as they can. There were elbows, hands and bodies everywhere and we stared watching for them yelling “Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill!” in their rightful spots of course. I stopped though when they started to come out.
I was stunned at the sight of them, and straining to see Kyo, and when he did, by GOD did he look perfect. He looked so much younger than he did, like by twenty years younger. Perfection. The others did look good too, but my eyes were focused on him. And that was all I could see because of the stupid pole. >O At one point I was right in front of it and couldn’t see anything so I listened. It’s wonderful to watch him sing, but to hear him live is another. Just something amazing.
By this point, I couldn’t breathe and I contemplated getting out of the crowd before I did pass out, which I almost did, but I didn’t. I was shifted a bit and I could see them again, despite the fogging up and falling glasses which I constantly fixed because of elbows in the face and head bangs. >.o The pain!
This is where I apologize.. I can’t remember all the songs. >< Okay. okay most of them... It’s kinda hard when you’re getting beat up and trying to keep from passing out and listening and watching all at the same time. I remember...

...That’s all... ( If anyone could remember or add on, I’ll gladly edit and add them. >.o ) When the concert was over, there was water falling everywhere. They were throwing the bottles and it took me a while to realize this, being the blond I am and having my hair just died and being all hot and tired. XD
Kyo was amazing though. He was F-ING amazing. This concert was memorable for me. I gots the bruises for it. XD But yeah.. There’s not more I can add since we didn’t get the backstage passes. So Aud gave me my wristband and I ran to the lines. I got us our shirts and we waited for Kitty by the doors of the stage area and watched the people try to give away the last two backstage passes by buying the pre-orders. Aud held up her money. “Can I buy those two?!” The guy joked and said how much. She said all the money in her pocket and he laughed and said no. Bastard. >_>
We left since they kicked us away and then we Kitty had her things we went outside and played for a bit, greatly energized. I had to pee! D: We hopped around and such and they told me to behind the bus. HELL NO! >< I will not degrade myself in public. >< So they tried getting pics of the hot Asian roadies. XD We failed, and then I had to go again. I should have.. We were pushed away again and I whispered to Aud “They’re coming~” She said shut up and what do you know, here comes Kyo in a women’s green jogging suit, tired, adorable, and meh! >< We stared and Aud chased the sidelines to get a pic with her phone. XD It sucked, but she kept it since Kyo has a nice ass. >_>
We picked up food after that and went back to the friend’s. We slept till about nine (?), then ate again and headed home. A stop at wal-mart then we were like Kohei! O_o We wanted the coffee and they took us to starbucks which was right next door. XD We drank it down and on the way home we had car troubles. We got home later than planned, but we made it.
