I know, I know....

Long time between updates. But it's been a little weird getting used to my new hours at work. For the first time in a LONG time, I'm putting in nine hour days in the office, and that's not including the hour or so I'm in there before my official "clock in" time. Rod's new job is working for another company in the same building, but he starts a half hour before I do, so we drive in together, which is great, but it means I'm up at six. For someone who's been sleeping in for the past four months, it's hard to get used to. But I'm doing it.

I did manage to get in one summer concert before the official closing of my "summer home" (aka The Molson Amphitheatre). It was a lethal 80's combo of Cheap Trick, Heart and Journey, complete with their new lead singer. It was incredible!! Both openers I didn't actually get to see, but I could hear them as clearly as if I was standing in front of the stage. Those Wilson sisters can still rock it out!!! Here's a clip from the show (doesn't do her justice but still sounds fantastic).

And then JOURNEY came on, and my supervisor knew I've been dying to see them my whole life, so she cut me early and let me go in. An old co-worker of mine came to see us and he decided to join me. So we each grabbed a beer, found a spot at the back of the lawns (and I mean at the very back - it was a sold out show - sixteen thousand strong), and enjoyed a kick ass show!!! This lead singer, Arnel Pineda, COMPLETELY KILLED! He's so damn talented, and very cute too. At least he's got the long hair and leather going for him. XP Check it out.

As for getting back to the rest of work, I'm taking it slow, and will probably only make it out regularly when hockey starts at the beginning of October. Which means I've missed out on the TIFF shifts (Toronto International Film Festival), but I can live vicariously through my friends Bhavna and Meaghan who went celebrity stalking this week, and managed to score close ups of Brad Pitt, Ben Barnes, Ralph Fiennes, Viggo Mortensen, and a few others that have yet to be posted or bragged about due to lack of sleep from stalking. LOL. I would have been stalking Jim Sturgess (yes, from Across the Universe, this hottie here).


Oops, sorry. Got drool all over the keyboard. :P

I have been keeping up with blogs, but not necessarily commenting. Mainly because I've been reading them on my lunch break at work and clandestinely (is that even a word?) between phone calls when my boss isn't looking. Glad that everyone is still alive....I mean, you'd tell me if you weren 't right?

Oh dear....that was a bad joke....quick, someone toss me a cow, or some form of a muse....amusement would be nice....

*stifles groan*

Ok, ok! I'm going to bed now.


Stay sane inside insanity ~ and never forget your towel.

I THOUGHT I felt your presence once or twice! Glad to see things are starting to get back to normal for you...even if it DOES include getting up early. Blech. LOL :P

Good to see you slowly making your way back. Take care.

I hope the drool cleans up okay. Cheers!!

:tosses a cow:

I know what it's like to miss a muse!

I can't believe Journey is back!


With love and pride
