“I love Pittsburgh at night. Can we take a drive through the city before heading home?” I asked him.
“Sure.” He held my hand we walked off to find our luggage and pick up our rental car. In no time we were in Pittsburgh.
“Isn’t it magnificent?”
“Yes, but I’m hungry. Where can we eat?”
“Some place in the Strip or wait South Side would be better.” he raised his eyebrow.
“Want me to drive?”
“Sure. At the next red light we switched places and headed toward Station Square and South Side. We pulled up along a favorite club of mine.
“You’ll like this.” He took my hand as we walked into the bar. I looked around to see some familiar faces and one stood out. It was my ex-boyfriend. Shit! Why did he have to come here? And notice me? Dammit!
“Alyssa?” he asked me.
“Jordan!” I hugged him.
“What brings you here?”
“Spur of the moment.” I laughed. “ Jordan this is my boyfriend Brendon. Brendon this is my friend Jordan.”
“Nice to meet you.” Brendon shook his hand.
“Same.” then another face popped up behind him.
“Neen!” screamed and hugged her.
“Omg Lyssa! How have you been?”
“Great and you?”
“You have to meet my new boyfriend!”
“Brendon, this is Dineen. Neen, my boyfriend Brendon.”
“Lys you didn’t tell me you were dating the lead singer of Panic! At The Disco!” The club grew silent. “Can I have your autograph?”
“Sure.” and then a lined formed behind her.
“I’ll go get us something to eat sweetie, what would you like?”
“A salad.” he said and sat down beginning to sign autographs. I ordered two salads, one with crispy chicken the other plain. I hope he likes ranch dressing. I brought us back the salads along with some lemonade.
“Let me help you.” it was Jordan.
“Thanks but I got it.” he smiled at me. I set the stuff down at the table to see that the line grew longer.
“I’m sorry sweetie.”
“It’s not your fault.” he reached across the table and held my hand as we ate. “This is very good.”
“Indeed.” Soon we finished eating, and soon as Brendon finished his autographs we were leaving. I said goodbye to Neen and Jordan.
“That was a fun night.”
“I’m glad you enjoyed yourself.”
“I did, but let’s go home.” We arrived at my house around 1 in the morning. I saw that mom was still up but my dad fell asleep in the chair.
“Hey mom.” I hugged her.
“I thought you were going to call. So I was waiting to pick you up at the airport.”
“Sorry mom, Brendon and I, rented a car.” I motioned for him to come forward. “This is my boyfriend, Brendon Urie, the lead singer of Panic! At The Disco.”
“Pleasure to meet you.”
“Where is he going to sleep?”
“In my bed. I’ll sleep out here.”
“I could-” but I hushed him.
“You smell like smoke.”
“We went to a bar in South Side to grab a bite to eat. Guess who I saw there?”
“Who?” she asked.
“Dineen and Jordan. I don’t think they are dating because a bunch other people were with them.”
“That’d make an interesting pair.” I nodded. “Well I’m off to bed. See you two in the morning.” she woke my dad up and headed to bed. I showed Brendon to my room. It looked exactly the same how I left it.
“I can sleep on the couch you know.”
“I know. But you’re a guest. Besides I wanted to watch a movie.”
“Elizabethtown - actually I was going to fall asleep to it. “ I kissed him goodnight. But we ended up making out and not going to bed till 2:30. I put the movie on and didn’t even make it past the bicycle of death in the beginning. I was pooped. I woke to the sound of the garage door. I looked at my phone. It was 7:43. Dad was heading off to work. Now that he’s gone I slid into my own bed with Brendon. He didn’t stir and that really didn’t surprise me. I fell back to sleep till about 9 -o-clock then I woke him up.
“We’ve got grandparents and relatives to visit.”
“I miss my grandparents and cousins.” I jumped in the shower and changed clothes before waking my mom. Brendon just changed his clothes and we were off to my grandma Kay’s.
“You hungry?” he nodded.
“She’ll have some pancakes and bacon, possible sausage just to warn you.”
“It’s ok. I’m used to not eating the meat.” I passed the house and pulled into a parking space behind my Aunt Rosie’s car.
“You’ll get to meet my godmother.” I took his hand and locked the door.
“You don’t knock?” he asked as I opened the front door.
“No, I don’t do it at my best friend’s Holly’s house either.” We walked into the bedroom past the living room and down the stairs.
“Lys! What are you doing home?” my grandfather greeted.
“Hey pap, I’m here for the weekend.” I gave him a hug.
“Lyssa, you home?” my gram said coming from the cool cellar.
“For the weekend Grammy.” I gave her a hug and kiss, too. “And I would you to meet my boyfriend.”
“I’ll give you boyfriend!” she smacked my but.
“Gram, pap, this is Brendon Urie, my boyfriend.”
“Nice to meet you my boy. What do you do for a living?” I took a seat by the frig, like I normally do and Brendon sat across from me.
“I’m in a band, sir.”
“A band? What kind of job is that?”
“Pappy. His band is famous. He won a grammy.”
“A grammy, wow.” gram commented. “Would you like some breakfast?”
“What do you want?” I have French toast bacon, sausage you don’t like sausage?”
“French toast and bacon please.”
“And for you?”
“I’ll just have some French toast, please.”
“No sausage?” he shook his head no.
“He’s doesn’t eat meat.”
“Wow.” pap commented. “Lys you look good.”
“Lost a lot of weight.” he continued.
“Dad! Leave her alone will you.” Then we heard footsteps coming down the stairs. It was the triplets. And my uncle.
“Bonehead!” he exclaimed and look toward Brendon. “Bring your boyfriend home?”
Gotta love the nicknames you've gotten as a child. They grow with you, i tell ya! lol But i hope you have a great day and an amazing weekend! Till next time!

Now on to my story!!!
“A Pittsburgh saying known as Pittsburghese.” I laughed again. “It means you all. Kinda like ya’ll but it’s yinz.”
“Oh ok, that’s interesting. What else you got?” I just shook my head no.
“You’ll just have to come back home with me.”
“Sounds like a plan. This weekend?”
“Well, if you want to I just have to be back on Sunday. I start my new job on Monday.”
“What new job?” peeped Ryan from the back.
“I’m working at Sony advertising their products.”
“Sweet.” he commented.
“She’s working for my Uncle, ironically.”
“We’ll leave this afternoon and you can take me out to one of your favorite restaurants back home.”
“Sure, sounds fine. Who’s going to buy the tickets?”
“I’ll do it.” he said. “I did suggest it.”
“If you don’t know mind, I really don’t have the money to travel back home just yet. I do miss everyone terribly.”
“Don’t worry about it.” he leaned over and kissed me while we were at a red light.
“Thank you.” I need to pay him back somehow. In a few minutes we arrived home. Thank god the door was unlocked because I didn’t have my keys. I looked at the shoes on the floor, Kay must be at the studio. “Please make yourself at home.”
“Where’s Amanda’s room?”
“Upstairs and to the right. It has our names on the door. We’re the A’s vs. the K’s.” I laughed. And he bounded for the stairs. “Ryan! Shoes.” he ran back down and kicked them off before taking the steps two at a time. “I can make you breakfast. If you like?”
“Can you make an omelet?”
“No, but I’d love to learn.” I smiled and so did he. He got the picture. 15 minutes later Brendon was teaching me how to make an omelet and so far he did all the work.
“Hey Brendon why don’t we leave as soon as we can because of the time difference.” I said out of the blue. I do that a lot.
“How much difference?”
“3 hours?! Where are we going to the other side of the globe?”
“Try continent sweets.”
“Shit, well ok, can you look up the flights while I finish please?” I hopped off the counter and ran up the stairs to my room. I noticed that Amanda and Ryan were making out in her bed. I just grabbed my laptop and brought into the kitchen.
“Gotta love wireless.” he nodded and flipped the eggs.
“Yea, some cheap ones. Are you sure you want to do it?” I took a breath. “It’ll be 600 for both of us.”
“Yes I’m positive.” he flipped it again and turned to me. “Alyssa Leigh, even though I barely know you. I feel like I know you. And yet I want to know every little detail about you.”
“Brendon I feel the same way!” We kissed.
“Now book those tickets!” I laughed and let him browse through to make sure we got a good deal. Our plane was leaving at 2 and it’s 11 now! I better take a shower and pack.
“Hey I need to take a shower.”
“Can I join you?”
“Brendon!” I slapped his arm. Even though it would be nice.
“What?” he gave me an innocent look. “It’ll conserve water!” he has a point. Maybe later! I smirked at him and walked up the stairs to my room. Ryan and Amanda were still making out when I returned from my shower. I packed my suitcase and met Brendon downstairs 45mins later. “Hey I thought you drowned. I was going to rescue you.”
“Very funny.” I kissed him. “Amanda and Ryan are in a deep game of tonsil hockey. I’m going to leave everyone a note.”
“I’m going to break them up!”
“Not so fast mister!” I pulled his arm. “We need to go.” I got on my computer and emailed everyone a note of where I was going to be this weekend. I packed it up and we headed back to his house. On the way I called Sis to tell her about her date with Spencer. She was excited. It wasn’t until 1:00 till we reached the airport. And your suppose to be there at least 2hrs early. Thankfully it wasn’t that busy and we got through easily. We loaded our luggage on the cart and boarded the plane.
“I can’t believe we are doing this.” I turned to Brendon.
“I forgot to call my parents.”
“Well hurry up and call.” I retrieved my phone.
“Mom? Hey I’m coming home for the weekend, be in later tonight. Love you bye.”
“That was fast.”
“We’re nearing the runway.” I looked out the window, pass Brendon’s head. “Hold my hand please.” he did and we were in the air. About 5 hours later we were landing in Pittsburgh.
Who would have thought he would take Lys all the way to Pittsburgh!?!?! Pretty great guy!!! Well I hope everyone has a Happy Easter and a great break!!! Talk next week!!!
Tuesday, March 18, 2008
Now onto the songs!!! I'm going to listen and put my opinion about the songs.
1. We're So Starving - It's a very lite hearted song. Kinda catchy as well
2. Nine In The Afternoon - Amazing song. I love the trumpet throughout the chorus.
3. She's A Handsome Woman - I love the chorus of the song. "Go on grab your hat and fetch a camera. Go on film the world before it happens." I think that just fits my lifestyle because I always have my camera handy.
4. Do You Know What I am See? - It's about the weather, lol i remember in the interview they talked writing this songs in Ryan's backyard with their shirts off. I'll never forget as long as I listen to the song.
5. That Green Gentlemen - It has a Beatles-esque to it. It also has Ryan singing on the chorus along with Brendon.
6. I Have Friends In Holy Spaces - I feel like I'm in a jazz club in New Orleans. It has a banjo and heavy trumpet and saxophone parts.
7. Northern Downpour - I feel like I'm listening to the Beatles again. It's ok because i love the Beatles.
8. When the Day Met the Night - I love this song!!! It's the most romantic song on the album!!! Def one of my faves! Yet again, it has a trumpet in the chorus.
9. Pas De Cheval - Up beat and very up tempo. It's a little cocky. It's like saying that the greatest thing hasn't happened until you meet 'me'. I'm just taking it for face value now i'll have listen to it for a cpl to actually get the real meaning
10. The Piano Knows Something That I Don't - It starts out very slow and kinda eerie feeling but then picks up. It talks about ballet which is a plus in my book. Its kinda like a Vegas show or something.
11. Behind The Sea - Ryan sings mostly sings the lead vocals. It's a very mellow song.
12. Folkin' Around - Panic gone country. All you can say about this song
13. She Had the World - Ryan and Brendon both sing parts in this song. I actually really like this song. It's very melodically.
14. From A Mountain In The Middle Of The Cabins - Sounds like a carnival song. The chorus songs like something the Beatles would sing! "If you're going then go, go, go!" It's cute!
15. Mad As Rabbits - I've been waiting for this song!!! Brendon starts off singing then Ryan sings and they go back and forth. I know Jon does back up vocals as well. Not sure about Spence. Still has that Beatles feel.
I love the album!!! It is very different from the first one but a good different. I'm sure how other people will react to it. A lot fans loved the beats you could dance to and stuff to that nature. This album has more grown up feel to it. People will definitely be blown away by it.
Hope you like my review and they you will head over to mtv to check out the songs and hopefully buy the album next week when it hit stores everywhere!!! Talk to you know thursday! Have a Panic Day!!!

“Hello?” he answered the phone groggily.
“Hi hun, did I wake you?” I asked him.
“No, just watching some TV.”
“Oh thank God.”
“Well…”he didn’t know about Kristan and her job so I don’t know if I should tell him yet. “Just had a bad feeling that’s all.”
“Oh ok. You home?”
“Nope, I haven’t left the theater yet.”
“Well why don’t you go and call me when you get there!” I told him goodbye and hopped into the car with Amanda and Kayla.
“I’m so happy that you got that job!”
“Me too. Does it require you to travel?” asked Kay
“I don’t see why not.” I replied. “We’ll find out on Monday.” We drove the rest of the home singing to Panic! At The Disco songs. Once home I changed into my pjs and called Brendon.
“Hey. I’m home now.”
“I miss you.”
“I miss you too.”
“Wanna come over?”
“Brendon it’s 12:30 at night.”
“I know. Please. I’m lonely.”
“Don’t you live with guys?”
“Yes but -”
“Go crawl in bed with Ryan then.” I giggled.
“I see how it is. You rather see me cuddle with Ryan so you can take Amanda for yourself. I get you now.” I laughed even harder! “Please come over.”
“I’m in my pjs.”
“So what I’m in mine too.”
“If you want to see me so bad then why don’t you come over here.”
“Fine I will!” he hung up the phone like a two year old. But he can’t come here! I share a room with Amanda. I guess I could wait for him down stairs. So that’s were I headed. With my tinkerbell blanket dragging behind me I made my way down the stairs. I curled up on the couch and must of fell asleep because the next thing I remember was Amanda yelling at me and Brendon scooping me up in his arms. I flung my arms around his neck. And fell back to sleep. When I woke up, I wasn’t in my bedroom nor house. Brendon picked me up and brought me back to his place. That dirty rotten scoundrel! I rolled over to see him soundly sleeping. He looked so peaceful; almost like an angel. I snuggled closer to him, feeling the warmth of his bare chest next to mine. I fit perfectly. I hoped I wouldn’t wake him but he stirred.
“Good morning.” he whispered.
“Good morning.” I whispered back. I felt like this is where I could spend the rest of my life. Away from harm with Brendon protecting me. It just felt so right at this moment.
“Want some breakfast?” he asked starting to get up. But I pulled him back down and kissed him passionately on the lips.
“You are my breakfast.” he smiled in the kiss and flipped me over so I was underneath him. We made out for a good 20 minutes before our stomachs growled.
“Just a bowl of cereal is fine for me.”
“All right. I’m craving an omelet.”
“You make one yourself one.” We kissed and made our way down stairs. I gasped when I saw Spencer sitting at the counter in his boxers eating a bowl of cereal and reading the paper. Ryan was in his boxers too but drinking milk out of the carton standing in the refrigerator door. And Jon well yea he was in his boxers as well but making some waffles. I turned to Brendon and realized he too was in boxers. I was in shorts and a t-shirt. I’d win the most clothes on in the room award.
“You didn’t tell us we had company.” Spence said.
“Sorry. It was a last minute sort of thing.” I apologized.
“No it’s not your fault.” Spencer darted his eyes to Brendon.
“I don’t want to be the start of a fight so if you could take me home please.”
“Sure. Let me put some clothes on.” I laughed and waited in the kitchen folding my arms over my chest.
“Do you think Amanda is up?” Ryan asked.
“It’s what 9 in the morning?” he nodded. “I don’t think so.”
“Good I’m going with you guys.” he rushed to get ready.
“Ready to go?” I shook my head no. “Why?”
“Ryan is coming with us.” he cocked his eyebrow and Ryan returned.
“Dude why are you coming with us?”
“To wake Amanda up.” I shrugged my shoulders.
“Goodbye Spencer.” I hugged him then I realized I needed to ask him about Sis. “Oh wait would you be interesting in going on a date with one of my really good friends?”
“Lys, thanks but you don’t have to feel sorry for me.”
“It’s not just that, she is interested in you when I explained her what a gentlemen you are and, oh yea the fact that you play drums because she is a drummer herself.”
“Ask her if tonight’s ok. I’ll pick her up at your house.”
“Great! Thanks so much. This means the world to me!” I kissed him on the cheek. He whispered something but I didn’t catch it. “What was that?”
“Nothing.” he smiled. “By the way, what is her name?”
“Sis. Oh it’s Alexi. But just call her Lexi.”
“Why do you call her sis?” Jon asked me. Then I had to tell him the story about how we were in high school drum line and I dubbed her my younger sister to protect her.
“See yinz later!” And I got out of there. Took me 20mins but I did.
“Can I ask a question?” Brendon looked at me seriously. I nodded. “What’s ‘yinz‘?” I giggled.
Hmm...any pittsburghers should know what yinz is!!! Ha ha it's a great word! But that's all from me!!! Hope you guys have a safe weekend! I know St. Patty's day is just around the corner so be safe!!! Thanks for reading!!!

There's the first batch of the exclusive videos that will be available to watch on buzzworthy.mtv.com. Each day two more videos will be released all the way up until March 18th!!!
Also I added another song to my profile. It is 'Behind the Sea'. It's the alternative version meaning that this one will not appear on the album. The lead singer on this song is not Brendon but Ryan Ross! And I absolutely love it! Someone needs to smack him because he said that he couldn't sing. Well I'll let you be the judge. Let me know what you thing of Ryro.
Something funny happened the other day. A ringtone website leaked it's Panic ringtone's to the public over the weekend. Now they fixed the problem, you can no longer buy them but still listen to them. How weird is that? So I saved them off the computer and onto my own. It's basically Pretty. Odd. in two minutes. Lol. But the songs are completely different than their first album. One weak till the Leak!!! You can bet I'll be listening to it ALL day long. Well that's it from me. Don't forget to check out Panic's interviews!!! Talk to ya on Thursday!!!

“I’m sorry but Brendon asked me this afternoon.”
“You said yes?”
“Yes I did.”
“But I thought we had a good time?”
“We did! I had a wonderful time with you.”
“Then why him?”
“He asked me first.” that was the only thing that came to mind. “I’m sorry.”
“Don’t be. It’s my fault. It should have asked you last night after the date.” Great! I’m glad that he didn’t I don’t think I could have said no, then.
“It’s ok.” I hugged him. I felt bad. Then Brendon came around the corner.
“What’s going on?” Spencer broke away and turned to Brendon.
“Take care of her.” He patted Brendon on the back before rounding the corner and heading into the building. I just broke down and cried. I never was in this predicament. But Brendon just hugged and comforted me. I think I made the right choice. Picking the boyfriend, I mean.
“Come on, let’s go.” he held me as we walked into the building. The boys went inside the radio room while we listened outside. The interview was going well until some fan called in and asked about girlfriends.
“Well I have girlfriend.” Jon braved it first.
“Yes, my girlfriend is wonderful. She’s smart, sweet, caring, and funny.” Aww! Brendon I really like you!
“As do I! My girlfriend is really talented.”
“That sounds like most of you can handle a relationship on the road.”
“Well we haven’t tested that out yet.” spoke Spencer.
“0h?” the talk show host questioned.
“We’ve all recently have girlfriends with our time off so it will be interesting to see how things will work out once we’re back on the road.” Spence finished.
“So you will be touring again.”
“Most definitely.” Ryan answered. Phew! Glad we got past that subject. After that they finished up the interview and came out.
“You did awesome!” I told Brendon. And gave him a kiss. The talk show host came out behind him.
“So is this your lovely lady?”
“Yes,“ Brendon replied. He slipped a hand around my waist. “This is Alyssa.”
“Nice to meet you.” I shook his hand.
“Nice to meet you too, she is sweet.”
“Thank you.” We kissed and a flash of the camera went off.
“Your welcome it’s so nice for you to come and support him.” I blushed. The band posed for a couple more pictures so that he radio station could post them on their website. It’s pretty sweet. Being a rockstar’s girlfriend.
“Bye Sweetie.” I kissed him. “I’ll call you when I get home.”
“Enjoy your movie.” he replied. Amanda said goodbye to Ryan as did Kayla to Jon. We then all piled into my trailblazer. Soon we arrived at the restaurant. Holly, Kristan, Jessie, Colleen, and Lexi, who I call sis, were already there. Ever since we all parted ways we agreed to meet at least once a week to catch up on everything. So far it’s working!
“Hey guys I have big news!” I told them as I sat down at the table.
“Then I have news.” Jessie stated. “but you first.”
“Thank you. I got the job with Sony company and I start on Mon!”
“That’s awesome! Congrats!” Sis told me.
“And…”I continued. “I have a boyfriend.”
“Who?” asked Colleen.
“And I’m dating Ryan Ross!”
“I’m dating Jon Walker!”
“Wow. A lot people are getting boyfriends.”
“I think we all have one now.”
“Not I!” exclaimed Sis. Poor her! Maybe we can hook her up with Spencer!
“Sis, you want to date a drummer?”
“Then I got to the perfect guy for you! He’s a gentlemen and a sweet guy!”
“Of Panic! At The Disco?!” I nodded. “I’d love to date him!”
“I’ll call him to tomorrow.” She thanked and hugged me.
“Jess, what’s your news?” Kristan asked. She showed us her hand. There on her ring finger was an engagement ring.
“Sean asked me to marry him!”
“Congrats!” We all ran over to hug her!
“Don’t kill me!” I laughed and everyone returned to her seats and started to bombard her with questions. “I don’t know when the wedding is, probably June or July. No I’m not pregnant. No I haven’t picked out the bridesmaids. I don’t know the colors of anything or where anything will be yet. He just asked me yesterday.”
“We’re really excited to have a marriage happening!” squealed Lexi
“Yes most definitely!” agreed Amanda.
“Let’s celebrate and go out to a club tonight after the movie.” Suggested Holly.
“Why not?” I stated! I just have a date with Brendon tomorrow night.
“Well see.” Came from Kristan. She never knows if she is going to be getting a call from the office or not. Then we all order, chit-chatted and went to the movie. Halfway through Kristan got the call to head into work. It was a dead body…it wasn’t going anywhere so she just decided to finish out the movie then go. It was near the theater anyway. Oh great! A murder or something in our neighborhood. I hope it wasn’t Brendon! As soon as we got out of the theater, after saying goodbye to my friends, I called him.
There ya go!!! hope you liked it!!! Have a safe and happy weekend! Talk to you on Tues! Kisses!

This video looks so cute, especially the little panic boys. I bet some people will come up with good ideas for stories in the meantime. Lol. Speaking of stories...i was talking with my best friend the other day and she mentioned the story about Sunflowers Brendon mentioned on the NRWCT. She thought it'd be funny if the tour had to deal with sunflowers since NITA had a lot of sunflowers in it's video. Like in Jon's bedroom and Spencer's drumsticks! I'd laugh if they do but we shall see!!!
Well i hope you enjoyed that sneak peak at panic's newest video. be sure to listen to the song on the side of my page and don't forget to vote for panic at trl.mtv.com. they were number 4 today let's get them to the number one spot like they deserve!!!! Take care!!!
