Did YOU Want to be an Icon??

It's true...I embarked on an 18 hour adventure with the Shark, all the way down to Vegas for a show that WASN'T John Mayer. *Gasp*

I'm sure she hates when I do this, but Tib wrote a fantastic write up of the Keane show at the House of Blues, complete with pictures and video - man, she's awesome! Suffice it to say, they pleased me. I might even consider seeing them again.

  • Meeting Mindi and her St. George posse
  • Learning what defines a "douche nozzle" in Tib's book
  • Getting to see Ingrid Michaelson cover Toxic (and I guess the rest of her stuff wasn't too shabby either)
  • Seeing Tib "sweat like a whore in church" awaiting Keane's arrival on stage
  • Not getting to stay longer in our posh hotel
  • Not making out with Ingrid Michaelson's super cute merch guy (what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? I guess I didn't get the memo...)
  • Not buying the shirt above...I have to admit I've looked at it three times on the website wishing it was in stock...should have coughed over the $30 at the show...le sigh.
Yeah...you wish you came too.

Carry her in your arms, and pretend you'll throw her in the swimming pool... She'll scream and hit you, but secretly she'll love it. Hold her hand while you talk. Hold her hand while you drive. Simply hold her hand. Tell her she looks pretty. Look into her eyes while you talk to her. Protect her. Tell her stupid jokes. Tickle her, even if she tells you to stop. When she starts cursing at you, tell her you love her. Let her fall asleep in your arms. Make her mad, then kiss her. Tease her. Let her tease you back. Kiss her cheek. Kiss her forehead. Just kiss her. Let her wear your clothes. Go slow. Don't force anything, and when you fall in love with her, tell her.

Daily Thought

I receive daily thoughts from Real Simple in my inbox. Some days they are silly, other days a little more philosophical. Yesterday's was particularly appropriate:

“Life is all about timing...
the unreachable becomes reachable,
the unavailable become available,
the unattainable...attainable.
Have the patience, wait it out.”

― Stacey Charter

...I'm just letting it sink in.
