…Being So Close

Posted on

Friday after work a friend and I headed to the local fairgrounds to hear some good ol’ country music. If you see my updates on Twitter, you know that it was Rascal Flatts. I have actually seen them twice before, once at the same fairgrounds. However, last time I was sitting back there:

And this time, I was sitting here:


It was an amazing show! When the bass was loud enough, I could actually feel it pounding in my chest. I have never had seats so close (about 15 rows back), and I don’t think I can go back to the nosebleeds again.

There were still some odd moments – like when two Barbie look-a-likes came and sat next to us. Being 5’3″ and not quite at my fighting weight made it hard for me to stand next to them. Thankfully, my friend agreed to switch seats with me (a good deal for him, KWIM?!) and they actually left after a few songs. Then there was this guy:


(stood there with his leg up on the seat like that for the whole time they were resetting the stage after opening act Darius Rucker)

I took a bunch of pictures on my point-and-shoot (cameras with detachable lenses not allowed) and a few short videos. You can click on the collage below to see the pictures full-sized in Flickr.

Guess what happens when you forget to refrigerate a roll of Pillsbury crescent roll dough?


Darn that yeast!

And yes, the noise when the tube popped open made me jump halfway across the room.

I may have one of the oddest jobs out there. They pay me to think of things like this:

What are you looking at? Well it is a banana split slip-n-slide, of course!

How do you make one of those, you may be asking? Let’s see:

  • ice cream
  • chocolate sauce
  • strawberry sauce
  • whipped cream
  • banana
  • sprinkles
  • and about a gallon of cooking oil for extra slide!

Next time you are looking for some fun on a hot day, may I suggest trying it?!

P.S. Excuse the blue hue on the picture. I was playing around with the settings and forgot to change the white balance back. Still learning!

With the inauguration coming up, this couldn’t be more timely.


P.S. figures! 😀

Whew! I can’t believe I haven’t posted in days! Even with two weeks off work, it doesn’t seem like enough time. My mom and I just got back last night from visiting my brother and his family in the Vegas area. Of course, you will all be subjected to those pictures later! Another great part of this break has been meeting up with friends I don’t get to see often since my move across country.

Tonight was one of those meetings and what has begun to be an annual holiday tradition. I was even able to record a short video while we were hanging out and film a short vlog.

If you don’t follow me or my special guest on Twitter, you don’t know what’s coming – if you do, it’s just as much fun as you can imagine!

Sadly, Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” song, that we had planned to duet, was too new to make it in the songbook. Maybe next year!

Have a great week everyone!

My Christmas gift to you

Well… not really mine – more like George’s. You have to go to his blog and see his Special Edition 100th You Tube Tuesday. It will make any Scrooge crack a smile!

Go watch it now!

I finally took the pictures for my Christmas card this weekend. I think they turned out well, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t plenty of outtakes!

If you would like to receive a card (who doesn’t like real mail?!), make sure you e-mail me your address. Just click on the e-mail link in the upper right corner of the page. 😀
