I haven’t updated in awhile, but I have been working on my list. Mostly adding to the books and movies, but some others are in the works as well.
On June 4th I shall be seeing my favourite band live for the first time ever! The Barenaked Ladies will be near Richmond and we’re driving up to see them. I can’t wait!! I’ve wanted to see them ever since I was a freshman in high school. They were at the Balloon Fest in Jamesville, NY one summer and I begged my mother to take me (it would have only cost the $5 admission to the festival, the show itself was free) but it was drizzly that day so she refused. This was back when ‘If I Had A Million Dollars’ was in heavy rotation. Since then, their music has gotten me through some tough times (when I was in SC), lonely times (long bus rides and walks to work), even boring times (hello, marathon work days!). They never failed to make me laugh or smile when I felt like doing anything but. Sometimes, their songs even helped me out of a funk and I felt like they touched on what I was going through at the time (‘War On Drugs’, ‘Tonight Is The Night I Fell Asleep At The Wheel’). They even helped me with the perfect Scrabble word in ‘Crazy ABCs’!
In honor of my first show, we’ve sprung for the Gold Circle seating. We’ve made our hotel reservations, the tickets have already been delivered and in less than 2 weeks I shall be rocking out with Ed, Kev, Tyler and Jim! It’s going to be fantabulous!!
