Originally, this was going to be a well thought out, terribly philosophic, post of a poetic nature the likes of which would even make Shakespeare cry. (Mostly in pain. But, oh, he would shed a tear.)
However, it's not turning out like that. I'm full of entirely too much joy at the moment and fangirl squeals that would most likely have my mini-Schnauzer (I just had to retype that fifteen times to spell it right) in a tizzy. (Eat it, spell check, tizzy is too a word.) But anyhow, on to the news.
Awhile back, I made a post about some old mix CDs I'd found, listed the tracks and ran through the artists I used to listen to, reminiscing. (That was two or three blog name changes ago, don't worry if you haven't kept up.) For those who are too interested in this post - trust me, it's in your best interest to stay right here - the most prominent group on those mix CDs was a group called LFO. Oldschool, for me, anyway.
I love these guys. Love, love, love, love. Did I mention I love them? Honestly, while I was into the whole boyband thing back in the day, LFO always stood out, far and above the rest. Even *whispers* the Backstreet Boys. I don't know - it was something about the lyrics, the way they sang... But I'm getting off topic.
They're going out on tour again! It's the age of the reunions and this is, by far, the most exciting for me. Now, they've got a lot of East Coast dates. You all know (or now you know) that I'm originally from PA. East Coast girl. But you also know (or now you know) that I'm stuck out here in Nevada. There's a show in Allentown, PA. Not too far from my home town. So I decided to get my gorgeous best friend, Stacey, some tickets to the show. I told her my plans and she's stoked, but she wants me to go with. I tell her I need to talk to MarvMan. Who I didn't think would be on board with this idea.
So I waited until he got home. And presented the idea to him...
I'M GOING HOME!
For a week! And without the kids! Just me! Flying solo! I will be flying from all the way out here in Reno, NV to PA for a week in July, hanging with Stacey and going to see Rookie of the Year, Go Crash Audio, Kiernan McMullan, AND LFO!!!
If you haven't picked up on it yet - I'm insanely excited!! So there's your Thursday Thoughts from me.
