so the question of day on saturday was, "how was the britney spears concert?".
it was entertaining that's for sure, a massive production with hundreds of performers and dancers, but i felt like it all was one big rouse to mask the fact that britney wasn't singing.
from reading previous reviews i knew that the majority of the circus tour was lip synced but i guess i didn't realize how boring that really is to watch.
when muffin, court, the klutz, erin, lastic, julie and i all traveled to pittsburgh on friday to see britney's concert i was looking forward to a fun night with my girls with some brit brit on the side. but the fact that there was literally a 6 song run during her performance of songs that i have never heard of i realized that maybe i hit the realization to make me appreciate live singing musicians that much more.
i felt like i was at an oversize dance club where the dj played only britney spears songs. i'm not going to stop loving britney, she's still an icon. i'm also not going to stop getting excited when i hear her songs come on, but would i see her in concert again? only if it was free.
thankfully her performers added some spice to the show - them and the people watching of my fellow concert goers.
for example, the group of high school girls sitting in front of us. these girls were WASTED. and not only were they wasted but two of them were making out with each other - while i know that this is probably a girls gone wild dream, i couldn't help but think that these two were simply putting on a show. for who i'm not sure.
these same two making out girls also offered court money for her beer. these girls had guts, that's for sure.
after the concert it was raining and i got lost from the group, but i randomly got to meet jenn (hi jenn!), which was very cool.
but let me back up a bit here. because something worth sharing happened on the way to pittsburgh.
we ran out of gas. well, court's jeep ran out of gas.
the whole situation was one of the singular funniest moments of my life. we knew it was going to happen - being on the turnpike the exits are all that plentiful. lucky for us we were able to coast our way off the highway within eyesight of a gas station.
you would think that once we got the can of gas we would be fine, but the gas wasn't going in the tank and we had to flag down a guy in a truck. because if you drive a truck you obviously know how to do handy things, duh.
moral of the story? fill up your gas tank before getting on the turnpike.
saturday night i had my friend slappe's bachlorette party!!!!
a group of us got together at her friends house in cleveland heights before we headed to zocalo on east 4th for lots and lots and lots of tequila. ole!
slappe even got in the upside down margarita chair. she took it down like a champ.
after zocalo we bowled our hearts out at the corner alley dancing, singing, drinking, shot taking and generally having fun. it was the pre-game before we got dirty on the dance floor.
next we headed to cadillac ranch/barroom because slappe wanted to dance. there were insane lines at both doors AND we had to pay to get in - these things alone helped us make the decision to head to the warehouse district.
people that hang out at those bars at midnight on the weekends for the most part just aren't my people. frankly that place scares me. but moving on.
we made our way to ultra where the tequila theme continued but this time with dirty dancing. slappe made it on the table to be specific.
looking back on the evening i don't think i have ever seen slappe have so much fun. she was so happy and i hope she wasn't too hungover on sunday. helping her celebrate her bachlorette party with her friends and family made me that much more excited for her and jason's wedding in april.
all in all this was a busy but very fun weekend, and spending sunday on the couch was just what i needed to prepare for a busy work week.
but on a random blogger note. not once, not twice but three times this weekend people that i have never met before came up to me out of the blue saying that they are fans of this blog.
words can't even explain what a compliment this is to me. it means so much to me that people actually read this blog, it's shocking actually. but i thank each and everyone of you that keep coming back to read about this train wreck that i call my life.
have a great week everyone.
