let love in

(if this comes out funky i apologize - i am finding this whole using a cell phone to post a bit weird... my friend has this phone w/ the keyboard keypad and the keys are really tiny and it is dark but i guess it is working...... so i don't even have to wait to post this in 3 days when i catch up on sleep)

the goo goo dolls

the first time i saw the goo goo dolls was 10 years ago - i got in a "fight" w/ a guy in my college earth science lecture about them, and he took me to see them (it was free for me so i said sure... and i was hooked).... at the time i wasn't into "local" bands as i had grown up in a college town and had my fill of them growing up and was SO TIRED of hearing about how each band was the NEXT BIG BAND.....

so when a co-worker said, ROAD TRIP, i said, why not, whooped-dee-doo that we have work in the morning... i made sure to have a day where i wouldn't have to bring anything w/ me to grade or have to deal with & i got someone TRUSTWORTHY to deal w/ the puppers for dinner.....

so i left school w/ the kids when the bell rang today.... threw on my party boots & jeans (aka 3 inch heals cause i ALWAYS get stuck behind the TALL guy and low cut jeans w/ a hole in the knee and shredded ankles that i cannot wear at work on dress down day) and a CLEAVAGE SHIRT - HELLO LADIES ..... and off we went

and it was a pretty good show for a band who's lead singer turned 41 today.... some of the newer stuff is a bit..... ehhh.... but i like the new title track "let love in" that you can hear by clicking on the link and going to their site....

the opening act was called "get over it"... personally i though they looked like 4 anorexic teenage boys... and i "got over them" pretty quickly - but maybe that is cause i am "getting" older at ALMOST 30....

what was REALLY funny... RIGHT in front of me ---- 3 boys i had in home room a couple years ago!!!! 2 of their moms are good friends..... they picked up the boys and drove them... the moms had a girls night out and the boys got to see the concert.. MY mom was NEVER that cool... THE BOYS EVEN HAD THEIR MOM TAKE A GROUP PIC OF US AFTER THE SHOW!!!! thankfully we had no plans on drinking.........

so for once i took a night for me - and it was a good move.... of course, i may be regretting this in the morning... but i am NOT driving - and after i post this (please work please work please work) i am taking a nap but of course i am wired.......

am i ready to take their advice & let love in...... that is another story & another issue.... yes, i am ready to LET LOVE IN - however, i have not found the right man...... because, lets be honest - its not worth it unless it is w/ the right person
