I don't know if I mentioned this (and I'm too tired/lazy to look it up) but this week my mom is in Florida. This normally wouldn't matter except she is our free day care while we work. I'm really glad my mom *finally* booked her ticket to go to Florida.. I was just really frazzled figuring out how I would make it work without having to take a week off of work. So for this entire week (with the exception of Wednesday) I'm working 8-12, Matt is taking Olivia to school at 12:15, and then he works from 12:30 until 1AM. Dude. I won't really see him until... Sunday? Wednesday I have a meeting at work in a town about an hour and a half away, so I'm technically down for 8-4, but then Matt is going in as soon as I get home. It sucks and I'm effing exhausted.
A really long time ago I signed up for a postcard project where you send a complete stranger a postcard and you get one back. Would you believe that not ONE store in my area sells post cards? I even looked in gas stations near tourist spots with no luck. So finally I decided to be lame ass and order one online. Fast forward a few weeks and I realized I'm out my $1.04 and I'm never going to see that postcard. When I was in the Minneapolis area for a concert I decided to stop in a Borders for fun. (Actually- I saw a twirly thing in the window with postcards.) So I found one...
Denleigh sent me the pretty one on the left. Obviously I'm the asshole who sent the one on the right. Trust me when I tell you I looked long and hard for anything resembling a goat. But cracked out horses with googly eyes are a close second to awesome.
Then an even further way back I got a box of amazing from my stressed out lambwhore Danielle. It was full of random stuff and scrapbook goodies that I'm still using up.
Anyways. So the concert was in an auditorium AND it wasn't sold out. Not even close. Which.. I kind of was surprised by. But you got some free toothpaste (seriously- more concerts need to hand out random stuff. It's just fun.) and we also got told we were going to Hell by some religious asshole outside. Now, they had a lot of picketers and fanatics outside of Elton John telling us not only were we going to Hell because we suck, but we're going there shackled because by supporting Elton John we were spitting in God's face who hates gays. Yeah.
Have I ever mentioned that I really can't stand overly religious people who think that by passing out hateful material and screaming at people minding their own business is ever going to sway a person? Because I do. You can bang on your Bible or whatever but I'm *pretty sure* there are a few passages saying you should be kind to your neighbor or something. Fucktards.
Anyways. So we went inside and realized we had really craptastic seats. Like, we were in the middle of the highest balcony. Oh well. The other shit thing is that they said no pictures. Why? Why do artists not want their pictures taken? I can understand flash photography, but no pictures at all? And do you know what that means? It's practically a DARE. At least to me.
Guess who won?
Overall the show was really good. I'm not a huge Sheryl Crow fan but I am now. I had no idea how musically talented she is- she was all over the stage with several different instruments. Her voice sounds so much better live than on CD. I really had a good time. I also appreciated the fact that she played for 2 1/2 hours and pretty much covered all of her hits and some new material too. Obviously, my favorites were "Strong Enough" and "My Favorite Mistake" because those are my JAMS. I can belt those out like nobodies vagina. So it was good. My mom had a good time and I had fun hanging out with my mom.
So yes. It's bed time for my kids and then I'm taking a shower and going to bed. I am super excited to tell you about my addiction to couponing and how I feel like my shopping addiction is spiraling out of control. :)
