The Word of the Day

As taken from the following describes the mood of the day:

Main Entry: disappointed
Part of Speech: adjective
Definition: saddened
Synonyms: aghast, balked, beaten, blue funk, cast down, chapfallen, complaining, defeated, depressed, despondent, disconcerted, discontented, discouraged, disenchanted, disgruntled, disillusioned, dissatisfied, distressed, down, downhearted, foiled, frustrated, hopeless, let down, objecting, shot down, taken down, thwarted, unhappy, unsatisfied, upset, vanquished, worsted

I just got an email from the online ticket broker for the University of Maine telling me that the My Chemical Romance concert that we were so looking forward to going to this weekend has been canceled and that there are no plans to reschedule it.

It's hard to say exactly how disappointed both Amanda and Cate are but I can tell you that tears have been shed. Amanda has recovered at this point but she's still pretty upset about the whole thing. We don't really know why it's been canceled; rumor has it that Bob, the drummer, is either sick or injured but that's just the word on the MCR message boards as there is nothing official up on the band's website yet.

Could be though that more evil forces than a simple illness or injury are at work here - I'm pretty sure that dreaded Pennywise the Clown had something to do with this as he didn't want me coming to Maine for some reason! Warning: Evil clown picture below!

There is no way that I am not going to believe that evil red-headed buffoon did not have something to do with this. All that plushie work for nothing ...

I am so chapfallen.


  1. oh I'm soo sorry, that's terrible. I had a similar experience about 3 years ago, I'll email you the story later tonight....if I forget remind me!

  2. OH no! I am so sorry. You worked so hard and were so looking forward to it. That is awful.
    The curse of the clown??!!

    Feel better, my friend.

  3. Oh that is so misery inducing. Don't pass up an opportunity. Let the kids know the music you grew up with:

    Juke Box

  4. Oh NO!!! Those poor kids - I bet they are absolutely heartbroken. And all the work you did... I'm so sorry! That da*n clown!

    Hi! Found my way over while searching for more info on the concert being canceled.. My daughter is heartbroken just like yours must be! Justina (daughter, 12) has been looking forward to this for MONTHS. We got tickets the DAY they went on sale for UMaine students thanks to a friend. :( Here's hoping they schedule another date soon!

    And Living near Stephen King isn't so scary, I live about 2 miles from his place. :)

  6. Pennywise looks far more evil than Krusty or Bozo, as clowns go anyway...

    That is horrible! I can only imagine ALL of your despair. You poor girls. :(

  8. Well, there's another way to look at it. Now you don't have to go to Maine.

    It's the power of the circle at work I say!

    Sorry for the kids though - that's rough to be looking forward to it and have it cancelled.

    Ooohh, that's so disappointing. Maybe you guys can do something special together to pass the time.

    OK, Linda. I'm going to have nightmares about that stupid clown now!

    Oh no! Poor Amanda and Cate!

    What a letdown :-(

  11. Oh what a bummer! You have all been so looking forward to the concert and the trip, and worked so hard on the dolls. Don't it make you want to SPIT!!

    I've posted another Nursery Rhyme Quiz today, have a go it may cheer you up a bit. x

  12. Linda,
    so sorry to read this on Saturday morning. (I took a break from the computer last night. Long day in front of it.)
    I thought you'd be on your way to Maine soon. :(

    Are there any new movies the girls would like to see on this rainy day?

    The clown gives me the creeps. Glad I didn't see him before bedtime.

  13. Sorry to hear that; you were looking forward to it all.

  14. I blame it on that damn clown.

  15. I'm really sorry, Linda. You guys were so stoked for it. I hope it's rescheduled soon.

  16. My condolences...both for the girls AND for you! You worked so hard on those bloomin' plushies, swallowed a great deal of fear, and were about to plunged headfirst into an adventure! Stupid clown. Hey, I know some people who might be interested in "neutralizing" the clown threat. (Besides, I'd love the chance to practice "old skills" again - hee hee hee!)
