Guess What Guess What Guess What?!?!?

I touched Gladys Knight's hand!!

It's true! I did!


Last night I stood in line for well over an hour waiting, outside, at war with sand gnats. The worst attack I've ever seen. I think we lost the battle.
.
Check out the only video or picture I got of the evening, it is of the crowd battling the bugs, watch for all the swatting.






And I ain't gonna lie, as it came near time to enter the building, and I saw people walk to the front of the line because others held a spot in line for them, I felt like I was in 2nd grade again, muttering "no fair cutting the line" and "if I have to wait this long..." and "if I have to battle the sand gnats for over an hour" and then to see them fill up the good spots when seated, it was no fair.

.

But then because I was in the back, I was by the aisle, which Gladys Knight walked through, where she was shaking hands, and lo and behold, she shook mine!!

.

Then I thought, maybe the cutters (in line) don't care about shaking (of hands) and so maybe the cutters and the shakers are just where they should be.

.

And then I watched the most amazing preformance ever and I was happy and no longer muttering about fairness or the lack there of.

.

Until today, as I scratch all the bug bites. Even the 7 bites on my left knee cap alone.

(update: I demanded a recount, it's 9 bites, and that's not including the back of my knee)

.

But not really. Actually, I am scratching and floating at the same time.

.

Because life is good.

.

I love Gladys Knight. And her husband!

Very cool, always loved her music.

I heard she went to Alaska once and her "Pips" froze.

I'm coming over from Mormon Mommy Blogs, asking for your help. I am in the running for a round trip airfare paid ticket to Connecticut, to meet a friend I became acquainted with through blogging. She is a super fun person and is holding this contest. I entered a funny story titled "Grapejuice Floaties, Now Marry Me." The person whose story receives the most votes will win a trip to meet this generous lady, whom I'm hoping to meet. The voting ends tonight-midnight. I used to be ahead but there is a story coming up from behind out of nowhere, and it's a tight race now. I would so much appreciate your help. Her blog is www.becausemomsaidso.blogspot.com and the voting is on the sidebar on the right. "Grapejuice, Floaties" Just go there and cast a vote for me, please. Thanks so much-you're awesome! ♥♥

Haynsy- Me too! And I always wondered what happened to her pips. :)

Susette- I will if you put my button on your blog. :)

I am soooooo jealous! I only got to watch the performance from afar! Rich gets to be near her when he and Abe are cleaning up afterwards, you get to shake her hand, and Rusty gets a hug and kiss on the cheek, so unfair!

I am LoW said...

Well now I am jealous of Rusty for getting a hug!! hahaha!!

By the way, picture taking and video taking were not allowed in, and of course I knew it, but I wanted a picture of the crowd SO bad. But I was scared I was going to be rushed and tackled to the ground if caught, so I very descretely got what I did. ;-)

Oh! i so wish I hadn't listened to all the warnings about only investigators and nonmembers and that we had gone! Next time!..........

I had Devin's mom coming with me.... until the day before when she cancelled. :( But I had the tickets so I went ahead and went, and took Wes, whose been MIA a lot lately so I thought maybe he counted. :)

Carrie Maseda said...

Yeah, what is crazy about Rich and I is that he had three people come, but they went to the 8:15 performance while we went to the 5:30. One of them is actually going to have a discussion. :)

Aw, that's AWESOME Carrie!!!
