Home again!

Wow, what a weekend.  I can't remember the last time I had such an enjoyable weekend of pure fun and selfishness.  It made me realize I should do it a LOT more often!

For those of you who might have missed it, carrie_leigh and I met up over the weekend in Denver and attended the Mile High Music festival.  We saw some great bands (a horrific one, too) including The Fray and yes, PAOLO Nutini.  :) 

I also met a relatively new friend michelled217 who happens to be a LONG time Paolo fan so that was such a treat as well.  And, I'd like to mention I only assaulted her just once when I saw Paolo up close the first time.

Carrie rocked--she was the ultimate fan support.  After the concert when we saw Paolo out by the security barrier I rushed over and was waiting to see him.  When I did and realized he was just feet away I turned and was all like, "Carrie?!"  There she was, steady and sure with the camera, and I asked Paolo if I could get a picture -and he didn't hear the first time- and so when I repeated myself he held up a finger and said, "Just one minute, I promise," I nearly died.  He talked to me.  So I turned to Carrie and said, "HE TALKED TO ME!"  Poor woman to have to deal with me like that, but she just smiled and said, "Yes, I saw."  Love her.  She was so calm and not like me. :D

And then I called Sharlene and screamed so loudly it was embarrassing.

The concert itself was amazing.  It's been a long time since I smiled for two hours straight.   There's more, but I'll stop for now and spare you all the details.  :)

Also, I need to pimp Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam.  He's a youngster like Paolo with a truly amazing voice.  If you get a chance to check him out, you'd be silly not to.  

Me and Carrie!   At last!  After knowing each other online for almost three years and being close for nearly two, we finally got to meet.  Much fun was had and I can't wait to plan a trip next year.

Thoughts on integrity...

Integrity can be neither lost nor concealed nor faked nor quenched nor artificially come by nor outlived, nor, I believe, in the long run, denied. --Eudora Welty

Silliness and a meme...

New iconage!  Woot!  And for those of you who don't understand it, here's an explanation. :)

And, a meme snagged from jandjsalmon !

1) Comment to this and I will give you 3 people.
2) Post this meme with your answers.
3) Provide pictures and the names of 3 people.
4) Label which you would marry, shag, and throw off a cliff.

Jess was slightly unfair--giving me three fictional characters that I love!  *sighs*  But I shall persevere.  :D

She gave me Ron Weasley, Edward Cullen, and Corny Collins.

(no subject)

Greetings from the land of the allergy stricken.

I'm posting to say howdy and that the trees are budding here and almost literally kicking my butt.  

I haven't been around as much as I've been sniffling (and sleeping) up a storm.

It's also my daughter's birthday today.  Yay for Emma!  She turns ten this afternoon.  :)  Anyway, as I'm feeling moody and ill, I'm settling for using my 'what' icon, as that is my cute little girl.  Or, heck, if you really have a burning desire to see what she looks like, I'm quite certain that I posted pics last year on this day.  *g*

Anyway, I'm going back to bed.  I hope you all are doing well.  :)

Friends cut...

So I did a friends cut.  For most everyone who was cut, our lives have gone in different directions, or I hadn't commented on your journal in forever, or vice versa.
