I probably came off as a complete creep, but I met two of my favorite dirty boys, got pictures and hugs and small chit chat--and even though I barely remember due to adrenalin rushing through my body--I'm still smiiling. So we floated back down the sidewalk to the box office where I'm told they don't have the list yet and it would be 10minutes. I'm pretty sure he said that just to get rid of me being that DH was getting ready to take the stage. We decided that after that experience and the promise of a wave to the balcony, we were good. We headed back in to
Don't get me wrong, we were gratful just to get to the floor and meet the guys, but we thought we could do better. The Husband and BBF's boyfriend(ish) wasn't interested in getting to the stage, so we took off. We used the, "Our friends are right up there, we need through...excuse me, excuse me" approach. We weaved in and out of people until we got to this douchebag who says, "Which friends? The niave ones??" Points to you smelly dude. Roadblock. But we decided this was good...there were only two people infront of us before the wall, so we made pretty good distance.
I'm sure a lot of you are not a familiar with the Dirty Heads, but for me this was a moment. And for spank's sake--check them out. You know how to use google, do it! And if you don't, click here for a taste. If you are farmilar you've probably heard this one. Anyways....
We jammed out, had a blast, danced like fools, spilled our drinks, sang with strangers, pretty sure got a contact high from the crowd, took lots of pictures, and at the end of it all...I caught a drumstick! This is my second DH drumstick in 3 months! I have a Matty set and that makes me cool. Right after the DH set we left. We hung out by the tour bus thinking they may come back out, but it was pretty cold by then so we took a near by cab to the hotel--which was AWESOME.
It was of course appropriate for us to hang out and drink in the tub. Who wouldn't?
After a little winding down and grooving, it was time to get our gamble on. We're pretty much broke, so we definetly went with tight pockets. It's not always easy to maintain in a casino, but we did fine. We gambled all night long and came back about even. No big.
This mini vacation will be remembered forever. I still cannot believe I met Jared & Duddy.
And I understand being this excited and starstruck makes me a nerd--I'm okay with that. At least I'm a Dirty nerd.
Oh and those VIP tickets I didn't get?? I contacted the tour manager and the next show in my state I'm on the guest list +1...they are some cool dudes.
So what have we learned? I'm still good at the whole Woman role, I'm a sucker for musicians, and I like reggae music---because I'm cool.
