It will be a miracle if I get this posted--BFF is an apple girl and this computer has a mind of it's own...

So, two posts in one day. Have you ever heard of such a thing?

I am recovering from the festivities. Perhaps when I can get home I will be able to get the crappy pics off my blackberry. Here's a few observations:

I was correct in guessing the average age of last night's concert goer would be 57. This of course meant that the bathrooms would not be overrun with puking teenagers (Hello, Jimmy Buffett!).

There were, however, quite a few young people with their parents or quite possibly grandparents. That was nice. One young lady (about 13 or 14, judging by the orthodontia) got to get up on stage and sing with Bruce.

I wanted to cry every time I saw all those people down on the floor get to lay their hands on him. I was happy just to get to be in the same building as him, but they got to paw all over him. Repeatedly. He even crowd-surfed on Hungry Hearts. And sang while he was doing it. I would have probably passed out if I got to grope his hiney.

We had awesome seats. They should be awesome at $100 a pop. The four people to my left must have money to burn. They sat down the entire time; at one point the woman next to me actually laid her head on her man's shoulder and took a little nap. I wanted to slap her.

I spent $25 on 2 bottles of wine that I didn't even open. I can't wait to get out of this city. It's sucking the money right out of my wallet. Oh, and can you believe they didn't have any Arbor Mist? Didn't sell good enough, evidently. Too lowbrow. Sure, so I have to spend $11.99 on orange infused wine with an orange and white UT checkerboard pattern on the label. In a little bottle, ya'll.

I had better go get ready for my lunch date...I'm going to see an old friend that I haven't seen for almost 19 years! The last time I saw her was probably Emily's baby shower. Then I'm on the way home. Tomorrow we'll discuss how over-priced Joe's Crab Shack is.

I love Joe's Crab Shack!
But you can have Bruce.
