Long Road to Ruin

So, as you read in by blog last week......I went to some concerts!! Yeah, I pretty much love New York City and music. I spent the past two nights at Madison Square Garden. Let me detail this for you. My roommate and I started out Monday night at the Spice Girls!! Because she is pretty much super awesome, have a look at where I was sitting. Um, yeah. These ladies were AWESOME!! They were georgous and could still sing. Dancing was on a low, but hey, they're 30!! So let me tell you. Victoria Beckham stole the show. She's gained some popularity since Spice broke up. But let me tell you my first reaction when she was staning right in front of me: "OH my GOODNESS!!! She sleeps with David Beckham!!" I think pretty much everyone was thinking that. They even SUNG MY SONG! Who do you think you are?!

Night two: THE FOO FIGHTERS!! I thought for a while I'd have to sit by myself since Mike wasn't sure if he could come, but he ended up coming back to NYC for the show. The first two bands pretty much sucked. JIMMY EAT WORLD I'm sad you canceled!! But who cares. Mike and I had limited view seating. AKA....we stared at Dave Ghrol's ass teh entire time. But that's ok. I find Dave pretty darn attractive. I'm sad he's behind this pole in this one picture I took. So they're on the list. What list you ask?? THE BEST BANDS I'VE EVER SEEN LIVE. They just kick ass. Sounded exactly like the CD. I mean, seriously, when you start out the show with "Let It Die," "Pretender," and "Times Like These" is it going to be a bad show?! OF COURSE NOT! So what else did they sing? UM, EVERYTHING. Everlong (1/2 acoustic, 1/2 band), Hero, Monkey Wrench, Big Me, AND BEST OF YOU!!!

I LOVE concerts. I'd truely forgotten how much fun they are while I was in teh other Manhattan. There's nothing like the first few notes of the first song when teh lights go down....aaahhhh......On my list of favorite things to do. Also! I was not the youngest in teh crowd!! The Foo Crowd was my age!
OK, so you know when you hear that concerts are more special in New York??? That's not a LIE!! I got to see all the Spice Girls kids! They were adorable! However, my first thought "OH my gosh, those are DAVID BECKHAM'S CHILDREN!!" And. Do you want to see the foo fighters? I mean, I don't mind looking at Dave Grohl's ass, but I mean, he pretty much embodies everything I look for in a man (long hair, some nice chin scruff.....a GUITAR) but You can see it on FUSE!! THE FOO FIGTHERS concert on FUSE! You should. I was there. OK, I'll leave you with little Cruz breakdancing.

Spice Up Your Life

That's right, mine's going to get spiced up Monday night, keep reading (c;

So my Monday started out with a bang. I had a phenominal Monday in fact. I decided a while ago, I was going to make my first vacation to the west coast (never been there) to see my friend Zoe! So I booked my plane ticket to go to Oregon in April. Zoe and I decided I'd come mid April when killer whales happened to be off the Oregon coast. (YEAH!!) At this exact time, miss Allen had finally been persuaded into coming ot New York after many, many "come to new york" ads produced by moi! Thirdly, my new roommate came home and asked what I was doing tihs coming Monday. Well, my dad is coming in for his birthday but he'll go home late afternoon. OK, Laura said, "Would you like to go see the Spice Girls at Madison Square Garden?" What?! YES!! I never saw them on the only tour they did in the US when I was in middle school!!! OK, tehn Wedneday, my sold out Foo Fighters show had magically opened a few seats and I looked at the right time. SO!! Spice Girls Monday, Foo Fighters Tuesday!! I wonder how many people are doing that combination.

OK, Tuesday, I was fully planning on going to the gym. Miss JCA had even told me she was going to make fun of me if I didn't make it, b/c I have a membership and have never been. So then I take my gym bag to work. I realize I left a hair band a home. Then I got an Email to babysit that night. OK, I decided to babysit. However, Alexandra and I did watch Barak Obama friggen SWEEP his states. Hillary, just realize that if you get the big, YOU got it by cheating. Winning a few big states and having lot of really old cheater friends as super delegates.

Wednesday. I watched K State fall apart. Terrable, guys, horrible. And that was when my Foo Figthers tickets magically popped up on my ticketmaster screen.

Thrusday. Valentines Day. Honestly, I'd almost forgot it was Valentines day. I hate the holiday. Not becuase of my terrible track record of boyfriends on Valentines Day, but because it's a terrible trick to make you spend money. If I do indeed ever receive flowers for Valentines Day, I want them either the day before ot the day after. Anyways, I ended up gettign drinks with Kira and her roommate and friend after work and then we watched The Jane Austen Book Club. Brilliant night.

And that's jp's week. I'll snap some pics of me and my roommate at the spice girls concert. PS. I'm goign to be closer to david beckham Monday night than i ever have been in my life.....4th ROW!!! I'm stalking him down. ah.....

ok, happy saturday and go k state men and women.

Super Tuesday

is tomorrow. I took to long to get registered in New York, but it's ok. But all today, this video kept resurfacing on blog sites about the new viral marketing revolution. And man, I'm really starting to like Obama.
