Who needs a vacation anyways...

Friday, November 23, 2007
Remember how I planned to take a vacation next year? My 35th on this earth? Yeah, well...um...that will likely have to wait, again. Sometimes there are just more important things in this world. Such as scoring two tickets to Tom Jones!

Rejoice fellow residents of blog land!!! It's true! Along with a theatre packed full of other rabid fans, hands full of panties and bras waiting to be thrown, I'll be enjoying the sweet sounds of Tom Jones next June. Who to take? My mother has agreed to stop laughing at me long enough to sit through the concert - I did tell her she had to buy me a t-shirt though.

And a super duper giant thanks to my big brother Dave and fabulous sister-in-law Chandra for offering to pay for half as an early birthday present!!!! They're the bestest folks ever. Now, if only someone would pay for the other half.... Just teasing, I'm perfectly happy to pay for it myself.

Below, you'll see a layout of the Jubilee. I'm so glad that it's not a larger venue otherwise I'd have absolutely no chance of my over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder making it onto stage (or smacking Mr. Jones in the face).


Now, the tickets I managed to get were not the best but I can't complain. As you can see from the second picture below, I'm going to have to bring my binoculars...





I'm going to be so close that no only am I going to be able to see the individual beads of sweat on Mr. Jones' face, I'm pretty sure there will be a few drops that fly off of him as he's gyrating those hips all over the place and hit me square in the face!!!! Woo hoo! The Captain and her mom are going to be rockin! Tickets are row C, right in the center of the row. That's the fourth row from the orchestra pit so there are only going to be 7 people between myself and the legend. I think I'm going to faint!

Wow, that's a bit TOO close for comfort, no? Tom's comfort, that is!

Well done, you.

You nutter!

And I must have missed in an earlier post that it was June. June?! JUNE?!?! How on earth are you going to be able to wait that long without bursting?

You scored well, Captain! Your ticketmaster skills are above par.

How exciting! I'd send you a pair of panties to throw for me, but the landlord in Wyoming's spree sort of cut me short - so I'll have to settle for any pics you can get. Maybe you can get a sweaty kerchief?

Yeah! I bet your mom will stop laughing at you as soon as Tom appears...he's a charmer, that one.
I know how very lucky you are...I saw Miss Saigon (which I wasn't that enthused about, but a stage-manager friend had free tix)from the front of the Jube, but I saw John Prine (who I REALLY wanted to see) from THE BACK WALL. I had to bring binoculars. ;P

wow you will probably be buried in a pile of women's undergarments that don't quite make it far enough

Congrats. I never used to appreciate Tom, but as I grew older I like him more and more. The dude is a born showman.

hmmm.... I still don't understand your infatuation with someone who is even more geezerly than me, but cnograts on your score!
