Tidbits of Matt's Life

This is where I post my incoherent ramblings. It's where I post the coherent ones, too!

HWHD HWHD HWHD HWHD HWHD HWHD HWHD HWHD HWHD HWHD HWHD HWHD HWHD HWHD HWHD HWHD HWHD HWHD HWHD HWHD @ 12:44 pm

Location (or, in some REALLY old entries, insult to Detect Button): HWHD
Right now I am annoyingly: excited HWHD
Soundtrack: Enya-Dreams Are More Precious & SMG2-Ending at once

HWHD × ∫-∞x dx. YESTERDAY WAS THE MOST AWESOME DAY OF MY ENTIRE LIFE.

It all started when, right after school, I saw this little piece of paper sticking out of the grass just outside the school building. I was curious as to what it was, and as it turns out, IT WAS AN ENYA CONCERT TICKET!!!!!! AND IN THE FRONT ROW, AT THAT!!!!!! I wasn't sure if it was real or fake, since if there were ever an Enya concert, pathvain_aelien would certainly have told me about it. I also figured that, even if everyone else at school liked Enya, there wouldn't any chance of anyone else at school just leaving an Enya concert ticket lying around.

Nevertheless, the concert was supposed to be in Texas, so I showed up at the airport that the concert was supposed to be at, just in case there was one. You couldn't imagine my surprise when the security guard ACTUALLY ACCEPTED MY TICKET! The conversation went like:

SECURITY GUARD: Enjoy the show!
ME: WHOA! Enya really IS having a concert here tonight?!
SECURITY GUARD: Of course there is - you just handed me your ticket to it!
ME: *speechless*

So, obviously, I LOVED the show! I got to hear all of my favorite Enya songs. On My Way Home, Orinoco Flow, Angeles, White Is in the Winter Night, Caribbean Blue, I Want Tomorrow, The Celts, Storms in Africa, Trains and Winter Rains, Stars and Midnight Blue, Dreams Are More Precious...you name it! And all of them sounded even better live! (And to think Enya had been worried that they'd sound less ethereal in a concert...) And, of course, Enya herself was as beautiful as ever. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Not only that, but Enya EVEN STUCK AROUND TO SIGN AUTOGRAPHS!!!! Not even this was the best part, though. Or at least it wasn't directly the best part. See, I got to tell her how much I loved her music (and how much I loved her ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥), but right before she got to start writing an autograph for me, the fire alarm at the airport went off. And indeed, there really were fires spreading quickly toward the autograph booth, which must've really scared Enya, since she fainted. Strangely, all of Enya's security guards seemed preoccupied with getting out of the building themselves and/or calling 911, since none of them tried to save Enya or even noticed her fainting. So guess what I did?

I SAVED HER MYSELF.

You heard that right. I have no idea how my instincts managed to get something right for the first time in my life, especially considering what had happened at Little Caesar's earlier that day, but I grabbed her, hoping she wouldn't wake up while I had her, and started carrying her out of the building. Unfortunately, she did wake up about halfway out, which made things extremely awkward for the rest of the escape:

ENYA: HEY! Put me down! GUARDS! Get him to put me down!
ME: Well, it's either this or me leaving you to die in that fire!
ENYA: Well, I'd rather die than be carried away by some obsessed fan that I don't know isn't--

By that point, we were a safe distance away from the building, so I put her down.

ENYA: (starting to cry a little) ...You...saved my life!
ME: *is hit with realization* Whoa! I did save you?!
ENYA: <sarcasm>No. Actually, you killed me.</sarcasm> YES, you saved my life! Remember the fire and you carrying me out of the building? Does that ring a bell?
ME: Well, yeah, of course I did, but I'm still like, "I saved Enya?!"
ENYA: It's not every day that you get to save the life of your celebrity crush, is it? How can I ever repay you?
ME: Well, even though knowing that I've saved your life is amazing enough, could I have a hug? That would make it even more amazing!
ENYA: A hug? Why not a kiss?
ME: I'm only 17. A kiss would be kinda weird.

And so we hugged. Yes - we hugged. It felt so wonderful to put my arms around her and feel her arms around me... *sigh* ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

And luckily, the photos that Enya was autographing had not been burnt, so she finally wrote an autograph for me. It said:

Matt,

Thank you again for saving me! You are so sweet and thoughtful. Thank you so much for being a fan!

Love,
Enya Brennan

You did see that it was an April Fools' prank, right?

EDIT: This comment was posted at 7:06 PM UTC, which would be 2:06 PM in my timezone...yay!!

Hey, at least it makes more sense than last year's prank (if you can call it that) :P

Besides, I wanted to make it somewhat obvious for the April Fool's Day haters out there :)

Ahaha as soon as I read about the ticket I was like "something is awry," although I didn't make the connection to April Fool's.

Besides, I thought the best day of your life was supposed to be the worst day of my life, and my day was pretty good.

Yay, I kinda fooled you! :D?

Not always. It just seems to happen that way sometimes. Plus, when it does, it's usually the other way around - you having a good day while I'm having a bad day. :)

Whoa, did I just resurrect you with an April Fool's prank?! :D

HWHDHWHDHWHDHWHDHWHDHWHDHWHDHWHDHWHDHWHD.

I'm not sure what I'm more excited about: the fact that you're still alive (be warned, that post doesn't make a whole lot of sense), the fact that you hinted at an Enya concert, or the fact that you hinted (again) at being Enya. :D

I guess this wasn't entirely an April Fool's prank after all, was it? ;)
