I was bone tired on Thursday. Like first trimester pregnancy tired where you can hardly stand up or see straight.
But, in the end, I rallied. And joined the troops with very minimal complaining.
Below, Rebecca and one of her bff, Grace. Rebecca found her pink sweater at Tarjay and has been looking forward to wearing it to this Grand Event. Cute, isn't it? (T shirt, Justice; Jeans and Shoes Gap Kids)
Our ticket... we had good seats... maybe I would have enjoyed it better had we not been so damed close to the stage, lights (blinding) and music (so loud you could feel the thumping and pulsing in your veins and heart) I would have enjoyed the show...
We paid WHAT for these damned seats that were still not the greatest seats???? Sheesh, I wanna refund NOW and for the shirt we bought Rebecca AND for the additional $85 I had to pay my sitter.... Oh my head... my aching head!
Ritas! I had never seen one before. Never heard of them until Tamara mentioned them. The girls and I had lemon ices... YUM! Best part of the concert for sure!
Grace and Becca enjoying their ices too...
My man Anoop-Dog! My business school prepster. I rooted for him all the way! Loved him. The concert folk made him too rock and rolley... totally took away from his personality. I didn't love it, Dawg...
My cell phone in hand... for Facebook updates, texts to friends and for checking the clock like every 30 seconds to see how much time was left!
Below, blinded by the light... my man Danny did not disappoint...
Below Adam... the freakish part of the show... at this point the music and noise and lights had taken on an all new meaning... The guy is a freak show, seriously! He's like a cross between Elvis and Liberace in looks, and all he does is scream... I just don't get the lure of Adam... at all!
He did sing one ballad... I really wonder what Paula, Simon and Randy would have thought about this concert... because it just ... well... it SUCKED!

There is no way she is over the hill!!! It takes a very brave person to endure an American Idol concert!!!
Thu at 8:45pm
I think that concert would be painful with the screaming. You need to take R to a GreenDay concert!

@Susan the look on her face was as if there was a very bad smell. And yes, I bathed.@Amy would be much more my speed but I think Jonas or Demi Lovato is closer in my future. If we"re going to have any tween angst I would prefer the sugar coated type anyway.
Thu at 11:28pm
LMAO!!! there was a bad smell... lots.. BO, fried food, grease, menthol cough drops... gack!

Oh no...you poor thing...it's been a rough week (to say the least). Can someone else go in your place?
Thu at 2:05pm · Delete
Don is going... I would never go alone! LOL We are bringing one of R's friends.
Thu at 2:09pm · Delete
Well see if one of the parents of R's friend can go in your place.

Thu at 2:26pm · Delete

Sell the ticket on craigslist. Is it sold out?

Last time I took 3 girls and we had a blast. This year someone said they wanted to go ; )

Uh oh....grab a beer at the show, and make the most of it! ;) Then, sleep all day tomorrow, until you venture out to get your first PSL of the year...that will be your saving grace, I'm sure! ;)

Thu at 5:27pm · Delete
They say that Adam steals the show. Can't wait to hear your review.

sounds fabulous Jess. What did Rebecca think of it?
Thu at 11:38pm · Delete
Did you take your flask?
Thu at 11:42pm · Delete
Sarah... Rebecca liked it, but even she thought it was loud. Angela... Wish I had... I had a Rita's italian ice... would have been perfecto with a shot of vodka. Must buy a few of those airplane sized Absolut bottles!

Oh yeah, i just read your 9-9-9 e-mail. Does somebody have too much time on their hands now that she has all 3 children in school?!!! lol
Yesterday at 12:12am · Delete
Peggy... I did that when C was home... I had sick children on my hands 5 days in a row... hopefully this will be my first day of freedom since June! (It was not!)
