Righteo..... So, I am SUPPOSED to be doing school work.... oops!!
This is FAR more important though.... I just can't hold it in much longer.
Unfortunately, my YouTube upload died halfway through, so I am slowly uploading the videos, but the story must go on.
So, here we are, dressed up and ready for the 'gig'. My big boy, Liam is doing his best 'Bret Face'
. Oh and Liam is sporting our home-made shirts that we whipped up the day before!!
Anway, so we set off for the entertainment centre with a friend who had driven 5 hours just to come with us. My other friend bailed
I had another 'special' friend that I really would have loved to come but couldn't. He is the reason I originally discovered FoTC and as Nonch can validate for me is a very difficult person to look at!!!
I would LOVE to post a pic but I am too scared of getting caught!!!
I'm NOT sorry to say.... she's a convert!!!
Hooked I think
Anyway... pics. Our seats were close closer than I thought. This photo was so fast.... it was 'wtf are they doing? OMG, they are coming this way, quick camera, quick." Thankfully the highly distressed woman sitting behind us did eventually leave or else her ugly mug would have ruined a perfectly good Bret photo!!
AND she would have been WAY to close to that gorgeous man for MY liking!!!!
This woman, really did ruin an awesome time for us.... as much as I want to try and self talk my way out of it... she was a kill joy!!!! Just after the boys had finished doing their song for the pepileptic dogs, I heard this woman behind me start carrying on about having to leave. She was very upset and was saying to her boyfriend (slave) that she would have to go and he should know that she can't cope with bad parenting. Now, me in my wisdom (Naivety) was thinking.... what could she possibly see wrong with Jemaine's concern for whales not being able to use cell phones? Perhaps she has a pepileptic dog and it was just too distressing for her? Liam kept turning around and looking at her, and that's when it struck me.... Oh, it's me that is causing her so much distress.
So I turned around to look at this poor unfortunate soul who I was obviously disturbing beyond believe and within 2 seconds of her leaning forward to speak to me, my blood alcohol reading rose by .25% She was plastered, paralytic, off her face, rotten drunk. She proceeded to tell me that I should be locked up and have my kids taken off me for treating them so poorly for having them at this show (an all ages show). Then she asked me the most ridiculous question EVER.... She said.... "Do you have any idea what this show is about?" I just stared at her. I am sitting with my 2 children, one dressed as Bret with no hair gel and the other as Jemaine dressed as David Bowie from the 1987 film the Labyrinth.... ummm.... no.... damn.... I think this was NZ's Wiggles. Sheez!!!
Anyway, she continued her rant, and continued to tap me on the shoulder ever 10 seconds to remind me that I was damaging my children. My friend then turned around and told her to shut up and come back when she has her own kids. My friend has an 18 year old son with Aspergers and is quite used to being told she is a bad mother as well!!!
I will admit at this point that I DID feel uncomfortable about having the kids with me during some songs.... but that was not because I thought they were being perverted but more because I was the pervert!!!
My kids are probably the only people I know that are more naive than me. They didn't get the 'talking' bits and they just love the music. I had ummed and ahhed so much about taking them with me and my decision making moment came when I remembered that I was MAD about the "Rocky Horror Picture Show" as a kid and it was only when I saw it as an adult that I realised what was really happening in that movie!!
I thought it was perfectly normal for a dude to wear ladies undies.
Later on I asked Ryan (my youngest) about some of the lyrics of the songs..... He thinks business time is about going to the toilet.... he thinks 'sugar lumps' are his bum cheeks and that the reason the Rhymnocerus is horny is because he's a flipping rhino and rhino's have horns!!! My boys always have a way to make me feel better!!
Anway.... time for some more pics I reckon!!!
this man should have a health warning attached to him!!!
