to my friends <3
since you gave me the idea for this, i'll do you first.
starts with this...
- we wanted the shoot the end scene like this, but because of the 'rules' of the festival, we weren't allowed to (because i was over 18, and you little ones weren't, and i guess they thought i'd rape or kill you).
anyway, this is the first time i met you, i still remember getting home that day and the little piece of paper with your name and number on it 'adelle' in cursive. i remember being so nervous when i was about to call you, because i had NO idea who you were, ended up a good thing i did tho.
then time goes by, and the best party i was ever at, was one celebrating the birth of me :P
this is the only song that will represent that night, even though we didn't play it!
- i'm sh- sh- shakin'!...
skip a few months ahead to today, i haven't seen you in a while. and all i can think about is sitting with you watching one of my favorite films. this time i won't stop it at like the most important bit, we'll watch it all the way to the end.
- ".... and VEGETARIAN CHILI?!!!!!..."
and oh god did you hate me... lol
i'd never seen the OC before, yet you invited me to the cool kids room (jesus, even back then i hated everyone, especially my roommate who couldn't speak a word of engligh.. 'what was that? your dress??') the first episode i ever saw, i saw with you, and then and there i discovered one of the greatest characters EVER -
the next time i saw you, you were drugged out on something, and laying all over me (by the way, when i met you at the sydney airport, i lied, i had actually been waiting there for like 4 hours before you got there :P)
anyway, i was SOOO claustrophobic!!! and i kept 'going to the bathroom' but really i just needed to walk around, and get some air.. this was the first time i showed you the greatest band in the world.... and you also loved my video (oh it was on my iPod i lost in LA)
- 'you are the one! you'll never be alone again!'
in LA you and your dad were like 'yeah, you should totally come to live in sydney' and knowing me, when i make my mind up about something, i stick with it. so off we went on our amazing drive from adelaide to sydney, where we almost were killed by lots of scary gross outback things. lol
sydney didn't last long for me (it felt that way, but i was actually there for over 6 months) and it ended horribly with the whole craig thing, me crying over the phone to you. but mostly i was home sick, and missed max.
i remember that was the best new years i've ever had.
WOOO! go DICE!
"Why aren't you shaking
Step back in time
Oh your too kind"
-i'll start here for you, because this is one of my favorite memories of us together. driving around, listening to the killers, singing along and doing that weird leaning forward and back thing. i need to drive you around more often, or something, we dont see each other enough these days. :P
"...coz i wanna take it downtown..." - i swear the floor was like 10 cm deep in water.my feet were soaking, well actually i was soaking, we were right up the front being soaked. hahaha
the concerts were so good together, i loved dancing with you right at the end, was awesome, and why were we almost going to go with that guy back to his place to get murdered?!
you're actually another person the first time i met i thought you were a bitch, and hated me. - jesus i'm so paranoid. but now i am glad i met you, do you remember my car's number plate still? its um.. well i dont remember it, but i'm sure you wrote it down :P
i wish i never left adelaide, because i feel like it ripped us apart, and now its hard to make time to see each other. xoxoxox
so we had like this most delicious gourmet lunch with our host family, and i think you had like what was it? pizza? and your host 'sister' and her boyfriend, went off fighting and kissing? hahahaha. i think that is 'just your luck'.
- do you remember this guy? hahaha
that actually makes me laugh EVERYTIME i think about it. oh i loved LA i swear you, ariyan and i should take a trip there one day. (and lets not bring um... whats-his-face ... your new friend, bobby or some shit :P hehe)
- the day we chased the sun.
where you looked like a 'fat bitch', a 'ho' a 'pig' and i dunno what else you said about yourself hehe. i loved those days, they always ended up crap, except ONE day, when we got some amazing pictures of me and you in the bathtub. hahaha, and then we could never really top that.
okay.. this day -
this was your birthday. i remember because your friend was with you, not sure who he was exactly, but anyway, i remember running around all day looking for a cake, and some balloons etc etc. but when i finally found it all, you caught me buying it!!!! how dare you, so then i had to pretend to walk until you couldn't see me, then i was seriously RUNNING down the middle of sydney with a cake and bags of decorations. when i arrived home, i ran into my room and threw everything in there except the cake, the present, and wrapping paper, then RAN back to the kitchen, and as fast as i could, put candles on the cake, wrapped your present. then i hear a knock at the door. and freak out, RUN back to my room, hide all the balloons etc that i didn't have time to blow up, and LIGHT the candles and answer the door. - if i didn't have such thick hair, i'd have lost it by now after knowing you :P
there were two songs that reminded me of you the most:
-paint the silence by south
obviously because you HATED the song, then one day, we were walking back to your house, (oh god, i miss you) and you asked me, 'hey josh, can you play that song...' to which i replied, 'the one you HATED?!' haha
the other song is:
- love me or hate me... lady... sovereign :P
and i hat to say it, but, i kinda like her now. hahaha i remember you telling me if i 'dis' her you'll start putting your hair into a complete side ponytail. oh god lol
miss you, and will make a trip to sydney again in march xoxoxoxox love ya.
- this is you. all in one. all my memories of you start with this, the look of it, the name and the smell. 'with love' hilary duff. even tho adelle, jono and even myself LOVE hilary duff, she reminds me the most of you, because i remember our endless chats about her when i lived in sydney, and the exchange of perfume (whoever had her perfume at the time), being in a big bottle or a tiny little roll on pen :P
this was also a very tough time for me, but you helped me get through it, because you understood every bit of what i was going through, and who was doing it to me. now that it is all over, i understand everything you said, and i see that person as almost nothing to me. why would i stress over someone who basically, has no personality. ha
i was thinking about the first time i met you, and i saw you when i was with clare, and i remember thinking, oh shit, this is KERRY up here, i actually have to meet her now. and it wasn't that bad, though, i'm not sure if you remember how nervous i was.
