I'm so so tired today but thinking about last night really brings a smile to my face.

Hee hee! Kellysouthpaw said "do do"! (Clearly we lack the ability to be mature about *anything*, lol. Hard to believe we are both entrusted with the care of small children.)

That is an awesome idea for a t-shirt. I would really enjoy wearing it around town, because almost nobody would know what the hell it was about, and if someone *did* get it, I would be happy to meet them! :lol:

I'm smiling too halo.

My seat was good enough and the show was great enough to sort of make up for no meet/greet. Or maybe it's because I was already lucky enough to do that last year, or maybe it's because I still have another chance on Saturday, that might be why I can be a bit whatever about it now (though I'll admit that hearing that a few others met them, people who were next to me that I didn't recognize from the other board does sting a bit - knowing the guys were so close and yet so far). I've got to say though, no exaggeration, for as good as I've ever seen Jem look he looked 10 times better than that on that big screen (WUBBA) so that was the only thing that had me really itching to see him close up.

Did he look amazing, SW? I can't wait :) And I'm sort of figuring that if they don't do a m/g at Tower where there's only one exit - Bret SHOULD be almost 100%, and the weather should be gorgeous - they are probably not going to be doing them for the remainder. Who knows though - just have to wait and see. But I'm crossin my fingers for you, SW!

I'm sure some good pics will turn up soon from the show and when they do you'll see what I mean. They both looked amazing actually, couldn't take my eyes off either one of them.

I got home around 1:50am. Some people on the train were at the concert and waiting outside too, so we were chatting about the concert for half of the ride. The girl had mezz seats and said that they really did a quite a close up of J's jewels during Sugalumps.

Glad you guys enjoyed the show! Shame about the meet and greet situation, I guess some people were lucky when they tried out another exit to meet the guys. I've seen a few pics and I love Bret's suit and the sunglasses shirt Jemaine was wearing. And the toy piano...such a terrible loss! ;)

Some videos can be found here including Sugalumps, You Don't Have To Be A Prostitute, Business Time and If You're Into It:

Also lots of pics can be found here:

I love all the different posters they have for each show :D

Glad you got home so fast, Nancy. NJ Transit held my train for 2 lost girls who had been misdirected, so i arrived home at 5am.

I have 200+ photos, some a bit blurry, but I'll post as soon as I can!

Well, from watching SheWolf's link of Too Many Dicks, the loss of Little Red appears more of an accident than a rock-star smash-up. I thought it was cute how Bret attempted to continue playing the separated-from-the-piano keys and then gave up, smiled and threw some keys into the audience. Awww!

I'm so curious now to hear whatever it was that Jemaine sang on his own....it sounds wonderful! Surely someone got it on tape?! :)

Now I really wish I ignored my throbbing head went last night... Stupid allergies...
