Lol, we did have front row seats....hubby was right next to me....Jemaine pointed at me during Sugalumps and I believe I forgot he existed, lol!
Bret was right in front of us thrusting his crotch out for what seemed like forever while I tried to get a pic! It was GREAT!!!

I so wish we could do it over again and try to relish it more....make the time slow down...

Did you read our accounts? My husband was just as dazzled by Jemaine as I was, I think, and it shows in the pic :)

I did read all the accounts! My husband was pretty much there against his will...he kind of pouted the whole time...Maybe Jemaine was looking at HIM! "Cheer up dude!"

Oh, sorry nonch....I thought you knew that? I enjoyed it but at the time, I remember being both excited and embarrassed, but all I could think was "please come down here, Jemaine...please come down here, Jemaine...."

If you watch the one and only Sugalumps video from Detroit, (by our own bjp4444) you can see how long he did it for. And it was, seriously- right in front of us. I could've ruffled his truffle. (If I wanted to get kicked out.) We both had bits of tissue stuffed in our left ears cuz that speaker on stage was killing us, lol. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mil18eKpgEg
I'm surprised Tom didn't try to to get me to lower my camera...hmmm, I'll have to ask him what he remembers about that! :hrm:

He's a great sport. I have the pic of Jemaine and I taped behind my sugar/flour canisters in the kitchen and I also put up the one of him and Jemaine because it really makes me smile. Plus, he sees my desktop is usually Jemaine. He's cool with it.....as long as I don't get Mel-ish, lol. I've said it before, I think he has a little man-crush- how could he not? :lol:

He looked at me only once & didn't know what to do with myself. I noticed that he sometimes played up to cameras in the front rows. When he saw someone raise one he would often turn and look right at it so they could get a good shot, like this little bit from my friend's vid at the Philly show.

But if you did I'd hold you tight / Into every single night
And we'd fall asleep together / And we'd wake up in the sunlight
Well, maybe I'm a dreamer / But maybe one day you'll see / That dreams are...

Yes! :supz:

Especially if I post a few more pics.....some not very good ones but still....:) I wish I'd have taken a pic of Jemaine pointing at me but I was too freaked out and lowered the camera. He was "how-dare'ing you" everyone and pointing at everyone with a camera, lol!

That's so awesome, SW! There is a longer one too of Bret signing autographs that night and I believe that first one is ardy and her daughter :)

P.S. I'm totally jealous of all the people who met him before the pink lady got to him. Michael and Laura may disagree, but I think she really ruined his mood for the evening. In that video he's laughing and joking around and smiley - when we met him (unless my memory is just cutting out the good bits and only focusing on the sad bits, which, is not unlike my memory to do that) he was really exhausted and kind of "done" for the night, you know?

Maybe Michael/Laura can refresh my memory if that's not true.

DON'T GET ME WRONG - meeting him, hugging him, getting a picture ---> :thud:

But I really wish I would have also had a chance to joke/talk with him a bit as well, like those ladies in the video did :) The pink lady, IMHO, totally ruined it!
