Ruth and Honey’s Tour debate..

BACKGROUND: Brighton, first date of me attending the #5iveGreatestHitsTour. We are stood, freezing when Honey woddles like a Penguin. Ruth says “Honey, you look like a Penguin…. but with legs.”

This began a tour long debate, asking everyone we could “DO PENGUINS HAVE LEGS?”

There were some funny answers. Even though I can’t remember them all.

Abz said “Well… they have feet”
Sean said; “Yes… No…. Yes…. They have feet like this.” He then woddled and did a thing with his hands.

29 of you were correct;  Penguins infact DO have legs. They also have knees!
17 of you were wrong, including myself…

You win Honey!! I got a prize for you when I next see you.

It’s time to ROCK

After tweeting about missing their connection and by the look of it getting there a day late, with no sleep for over 24hours…

The lads kicked off the five dates of this leg of #5iveGreatestHitsTour in Fremantle, Austrailia.

rock that shit up and enjoy every minute.

#AskScott – 50k followers

A week or so ago Scott (5ive) said when he reached 50k followers over on his twitter; @scottlarock5 he would do another #AskScott. Anyone could ask him a question and he would try to answer as many as possible. He quickly reached that marker…. Infact just before this session started he was on 50,303 followers. Nice one ScottLaRock… 5.

Tonight he stayed on for an hour between 8 and 9pm. This was so everyone could then go and watch the final episode of ‘the Big Reunion – on tour.’ This three episode series has been given various names, but it’s what happened on the tour.

I did ponder over some meaningful questions. Instead, I settled on a ‘lets make him think a bit’ and ‘this could be some psychology testing’…:

Me: #AskScott Hey Scott La Rock… 5. Name 5 things that are Green????
Scott: Grass, Kermit the fog, Apples, Grapes, leaves on trees

Ok, there’s no suprises in his answer. It’s probably 5 things that most people would say. 4 of the things can also be different colours… So… I wonder what that means.  I reckon; He’s a colourful person!

A lot of the questions being asked were surrounding; the possiblity of new songs, being on stage, and the up and coming  tours. There was a ton of famous names being mentioned Ironman, Kurt Cobain, Bono, Georgie Swan, Jack Wilshere, Ed Sheeran, Queen,  There was also a few personal and deep questions thrown in. There was even talk of the idea of the lads wearing Kiltz to the Glasgow show…. a reply of ‘Ehhh No’ says it all. It was a mixture of questions and Scott did well answering so many.

If you are heading to the Cardiff show in November, keep your voices well as you will need them to sing a Happy Birthday to Scott.

To find out why the above were mentioned in answers (it was ALL good reasons) and what the answers to; “what would you do if you were in a club and a 5ive song comes on?” and “How would you describe Ritchie in 5 words?” are, go follow @ScottLaRock5 over on Twitter. You may even find out what scent he wears.

Thank you Scott, we appreciate it, especially as you aren’t feeling too well at the minute. You have also gained several followers. As of 9pm the tally is 50,308. Fab!

This week I have been mainly…

..sleeping. wearing Rainbow #UnicornHat . watching a clip of Celebrity Big Brother. tweeting about what I saw. sleeping. watching a clip. sleeping. watching the main show. watching clips. tweeting. watching Bit of the Side. Trying to watch the LiveStream… sleeping………..

#TeamAbz
#Abz2winCBB

Can’t wait for him to get out and see all the support he’s been getting. We love the Abz!

Scott was ace face and sooo funny on the Sunday show. Nice one! “Who wants the caaake..” *falls over* Poor Lauren though, bless her, she’s doing well in there. I think she might benefit the most from being around people.

As the days go on I am actually sure Abz has turned into me. He’s ‘quoted’ me twice, wearing MY hat, saving the creatures, watering the plants my way, face painting – what’s next? The guy might as well cosplay me 😉

Abz: “She’s even got my hat!” – Big Summer Session

NOTE: I hold S, L.C, Z, L, L, L, my brother, his daughter, #5ivers and EJB on the run up to the show, mummy Abz AND Vicky for what happened. You all gave me a kick up the bum to wear my Abz cosplay, and were there by my side when this happened. Thank you all – seriously xx

You may have a body and/or mind that trys to stop you doing things you want to do in life, but there is always a way. Keep on Movin’, Keep Smiling and Keep fighting xx

BSS

the Big Summer Session, Swindon; WHAT HAPPENED?

  • I am totally mind blown, overwhelmed and I am struggling to process such a “beautiful’ moment, and everyone’s nice comments and likes and…

Lots of people asking about yesterday. I won’t bore you with the ‘on my feet in pain for 12 hours, the whole power cut random annoying-ness or the everyone was drench in  7 hours of heavy rain and that the lads did get on stage but for a shorter set and the people looking very ill, and the fact I’m now really not feeling good at all.’…….. I know if you are actually reading this it’s because you have seen photos appear on Twitter or Facebook. OR you are my nosey sister 😉

A few people ninja photographed me.  It was funny.

I have to be honest, I have told the story a million times over to my family and even more times to my man. I blubber every time, get hyper every time and every time I think – did that actually happen? I was thinking maybe I wanted to keep it between myself and the #5ivers who helped me #makethishappen, and everyone stood there. However, quite a few friends and general people have asked, I figured if I write it down once I can copy/paste or send this link.

Of coarse, I don’t remember every little thing, but I will try my best. I’m not totally sure what people want to know? Do you want to know that Abz smelt SO good, or that Vicky’s doggy did not speak the way Abz said!? No, I don’t believe you wanted to know that.

I am just going to start typing and see what happens.

After 5ive were on… We went to the back. Simples. Though did lose some peoples and temporarily loose some.
There was a hand full of people stood at the fences. I joined them with the other 5ivers. Talked for a few seconds and there he was……………… ABZ..
Oops, I fangirl squealed when I saw Vicky – what was that about? 😉
Anyway, S shouted “Abz, Vicky, we have the Abz cosplayer here”

I swore under my breath thinking ‘ok, this is the moment of truth, will he approve.. he can’t see me like this. this aint good. this aint good………  I don’t know how he got to me in the row or how he saw me or..  He just appeared in front of me all Abz like and ..
I would have been ok, until he opened his mouth. Awwh man! I can’t even! Seriously – too much emotion. Too kind. Too nice. Too Abz!!! adorable.

Abz; “Ah man, that’s so cool” (And yes, everyone has to talk.like.Abz when reading this )
“It’s like looking in the mirror” I turned my head  away, teary, shy, all ‘ah man, this isn’t right’. I could not take the niceness. There was a few ‘aww’s coming from 5ivers. His little adorable smiley face he does.
“Biggest compliment”
“She’s even got my hat….. and my tattoos… everything”
Putting his hand through the fence, or did I put mine through shaking my hand, or touching his arm or something or I don’t even know.
Seriously I just.. yeah. I couldn’t take it in.
Then Vicky coming over smiling at me and that was even worse, I crumbled.
Abz asked Vicky if she’d seen me and  “even got my hat”, and She said yes and that it was great.
Abz said something and Vicky asked if she could shake MY hand! Whatttttt! How does that work?

I was taken back by him being taken back. Vicky then asked if I’d had photo with him. No idea what Abz was doing at that point and it’s a blur about what they were saying to each other but I said Nope. She said did I want one. I said if that’s ok with him. I don’t know if Abz said he wanted one. She said yes and her and the guard said to come round.  I did, and my gosh that was the LONGEST walk of my life. I was freaking, totally freaking.  Did I imagen you guys who were stood there cheering? (maybe it was the fanfare in my head haha)
The guard on this end of the fences asked what I was doing and the other guard shouted “She’s coming through”

Abz was nattering to the lovely peoples/5ivers, turned around. Vicky took the photos.
Abz; something about it being cool and then said  “you ok?”
Me; *nod*
Abz; “What pose we gonna do?”
Me; “erm”
Both do the point thing at same time.
Abz; “Lets do another one”
We posed several times and he then said “Let’s do a shocked face” Now that face was classic! We missed it on camera.
We did arms folded, then he said “Another one” and posed,
then said “Another!” I don’t think Vicky could keep up with taking the photos as he was moving about so much hehe.
The cosplayer in me went straight out the window and probably only half of the ‘black belt’ in me was left by the end of this.

He then kept saying “Thank you” and “it’s the Biggest Compliment” and just smiling at me and staring at me and “You even have the hat!” I think we bro fisted, you know what, I can see me looking at his arm and thinking ‘what’s he doing’ and then something and then him smelling so nice (sorry but he did) as he hugged me – very brief. I think that happened? That happened right? All I could say was “erm, erm erm erm yeah” “Thank you” “This is weird man” “Sorry” “Thank you” “Sorry this is just..” “Too nice man too nice” I guess I did go into Abz cosplay mode.. No idea! I know Ruth was out of the building.
They both kept looking at me and smiling. Their eyes. My gosh, their eyes said it all.

He was all too cool for school and just like “Yeah she even got my hat!”
The last thing he said I can’t remember but I really wanted to remember it because it was one of the nicest things I’ve ever heard and now my brain has totally exploded and I will probably never remember.

Image

Then he trotted off (I think a very happy bunny), and Vicky gave me my camera.
I said “May I get a photo with you, or is that cheeky?”
Vicky; “Yes of course you can”
The guard who was totally ace face and I wanted to give him a gold star. He didn’t take the photo very well, we both said to him “You need to push it right down”, the button that is. He did.
I said “Thank you, Vicky”
She said “no, thank you”
and had a hug, avoiding squishing our dog 😉 (haha)
I said “Seriously thank you so much, that was amazing”
She said “It’s alright sweetheart”

I was all confused , I could have stood there but didn’t know so I went back round the fences.
There was now 3 lady guards on the gate and they all asked me “I bet you liked that” “That must have made your day”
Me; “totally, amazing. I can’t think.. Yes, I haven’t seen him for so long, that was incredible. that.. that.. *trying to breathe* that’s my life done!”
They smiled and said super nice things.

T and Z had arrived, I didn’t see them catch up I don’t think. Maybe I did. I have no idea. Bare in mind is really wasn’t far at all to walk around but it felt like forever. I got to the others and Abz and Vicky were just saying bye. Everyone was shouting bye etc.
I shouted “Bye and thank you”

I then rang my man, though I didn’t know what I was saying and I starting hugging the 5ivers and no idea what I said but thank yous were in their somewhere. 🙂 #5ivers amaze me!

Vicky and Abz drove past in the car, they were still smiling and lovin’ it. ❤
Thank you Abz, and Vicky and all 5ivers and my brother and OH MY! Seriously… just… even as a cosplayer to get comments from the character/person you are cosplaying is out of this world, let alone your idol, the dude who’s voice has been there – in your ears for 16 years –  through all the pain taking you to another world to help you cope. As a kid dreaming you were that dude in the band helping you escape. Some people will know what this meant to me.

Truely, thank you Mr Love. There’s nothing I can say to come close to what I’m feeling. THANK YOU THANK YOU and THANK YOU some more.

All the fighting has been worth it. My life is now complete.

But, wait Abz #2 it doesn’t stop there. Oh no, more mind-boggling, overly niceness came a few minutes later…

  • Out comes Scott

He went down the row staring on the people to the left of me, got to me and ….

He looked, paused, smiled,
Scott; “Hey, Abz!”
Me; “Hey”
Scott said something about looking good
I said something about Abz fangirling (though I’m hoping I only thought it and didn’t say it out loud)
Scott; Stares at me for (felt like) ages
Scott “So can I get a high5ive then?”

Couple of other natterings ’20th on my high 5iving mission and getting the rest of the band as cosplayers’ … More natterings with the other peoples. He does look good in his glasses. Then he went off to his car.

As him, Kerry and the boys drove past in car. They stopped infront of us.

Scott; “see you later Abz” *waves*
Me; “see ya” *salutes*
Scott; *looks at me for a second*  “Kerry, you seen this?”
Kerry looked and then  was saying something to boys in the back of car. No idea what it was. Scott kept looking and then drove off.

  • Ritchie just looked and me and then carried on talking to others and then Chris beeped so he had to move. Everyone has to tell Ritchie they got “soaking wet for him”.. he loved it 😉 ha
  • Sean.. was… well… Sean.

This is where I say. Sorry if this made no sense.

I am currently trying to look through 200 and then another 100 notifications on Facebook. What’s going on peoples? Since when did I deserve all this niceness? You are all amazing for your comments, support and appreciation. I just can’t process it all. TOO MUCH NICE! My mind is totally blown. Thank you for all the support – you are all crazy pants  and I love you for it 🙂 xx

Who is the sexiest from 5ive?

[5iver asked] Who is more sexy from 5ive?

This was asked in the main 5ive group on Facebook. Which by the way, rocks my socks.
Abz of course, currently has the most votes. 😉

You might assume I voted Abz… I didn’t. This question was a bit of fun, and you are always going to get fans talking about the acts this way. However, when I read this question I thought a bit deeper and what, in my mind the brand ‘5ive’ means.

Yes, they are good looking lads. You can all see and/or hear that. 😉  Just, First and foremost it’s the lads voices and really good music. When I first heard them each of their voices struck a whole other level in my ears. If I’m truly honest, I instantly feel in love with Abz voice, the rest followed. They were a bit different, edgy, I liked that, I NEEDED to hear more. From that day they embedded themselves in my heart.

‘5ive’ – It’s a lot more than the music. It’s the whole community. Yes it’s the love of the lads, their music, in some cases their looks… this second time around it’s their honesty, their overcoming of battles, the fans life battles, them taking a risk, the rockin’ at their shows, the spirit, the trying to get enough money to see their shows, dancing around in your bedroom thinking you were in the band, picking us all up when we are down, giving us hopes and dreams, 16 years worth of dedicated. It’s about the fans, 5ivers, everyone involved.. it’s about the whole package, the whole ‘5ive’ network….. the #5iverFamily 😀

To be honest, I just think  they shouldn’t feel any pressure to be a certain look or whatever… Respect I guess.

Maybe this trigger of deeper thinking wasn’t needed to answer a ‘bit-of-fun’ question. But, for whatever reasons, after thinking about it before answering, out of everyone I could picture in my mind to do with any part of ‘5ive’.. it lead me to type;  Vicky.

What does ‘5ive’ mean to you? Comment below 🙂

#AskScott

Scott was incredible tonight. I have no idea how he coped with doing an #AskScott. #5ivers were totally amazing. Asking so many different questions. Some were a bit funny, some I’m not sure what people were asking. I for one couldn’t keep up with it all.  Thank you all for entertaining me and supporting the lads.

From Queen5iver I just found out it was “about 500-600 tweets and it was an hour and a half long”  Flippin’ heck,  I’m so proud to be part of something so nutty but so lovely. We all mega appreciate that Scott took time to do this. Proud of him and all 5ivers.

What did I ask?
#AskScott “Fans that cosplay/dress/lookalikey/tribute act as you and the lads; Fun or Freaky? ;)”
#AskScott “any allergies? hayfever?”
#AskScott “are you having a #5iveGreatestHitsTour Bus??”

Did any of them get answered?
Yes because Scott really picked some good ones to answer, and spread the love out between a lot of different 5ivers. We were all very happy bunnys. Here’s my question and how he answered;

Image

Thank you SO much to Mr Scott who really does ROCK! There was so much going on.

What else did I learn?
I learnt from Sean’s Angel’s question that Scott thinks the fans are “loyal and mental lol” – he got that right!! hehe

I think that’s enough, if you want to find out the answers to;
‘Will Scott’s spikes make a reappearance at the GreatestHitsTour?’
‘Who does Scott think would win a fight between a dragon and a Tyranosaurus Rex?’
‘Has Scott ever forgotten lyrics while on stage?’

and even more crazy, fun, interesting and thought provoking questions; either search Twitter for #AskScott and/or @ScottlaRock5  – don’t forget to follow him if you haven’t already 🙂
