Ecstasy is all you need…

What a wild ride last weekend was!

For starters, we got free tickets to see the Goo Goo Dolls at the Meadowbrook Theatre. I couldn’t think of a better place to spend a Friday night, but I didn’t realize I was quite so spoiled - or so old - when I saw that we had lawn seats. I’ll admit, I missed the seats. Sitting on the ground a half mile from the stage is overrated. Also, WTF is up with concert goers today? Every one had those collapsable folding chairs and they sat in them the entire time. No one danced. There were no people playing frisbee. I didn’t even smell any pot. (Not that I condone that behavior, but really!)

Other than that, the show was good. They sounded great and I loved the new tunes. I can’t wait for the new album to come out.

The big news is that I am no longer a Ren Faire virgin!

Sunday, my friends and I journeyed to the NY Ren Faire. I got to meet The Ginger Pirate, “my friend” Kristine, visited with old friends and made some new ones. There’s so much to write about, but in an effort to protect the not-so-innocent, I’ll try the ol’ bullet list.

  • Boobie roses!
  • Puss and Boobs…
  • Swords shoved into to bodices are probably even more uncomfortable than they look.
  • Reunited with Pony and it feels so good.
  • Random ex-boyfriend sighting resulted in a THANK JEEBUS! moment
  • The gay man made me wet!
  • Frozen chocolate covered bananas are good for hours of entertainment and VERY amusing photos. (Can you say password protected photo gallery, boys and girls? LOL)
  • Discovering even more members of The Dead Parents Club
  • Who knew I would have an addiction to swords? I’m on the hunt for the perfect rapier!
  • ...and maybe a better bodice…

I just wish I wasn’t working 10 hour days again… Yeah. But. I have the ear of people that matter and they know how I feel about the situation. Things should change… maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow. But they will. I just have to remember to be patient. Which I’m really not good with.
