Can't sleep

Tonight we went to see Maroon 5 at Madison Square Garden. I haven't seen a band play there since I was 5 and my mom took me to see New Kids on the Block (I was very obsessed). We generally see smaller bands so it was strange to see such a mainstream band in such a huge venue. I'm not used to being that far away from the artists I love but when you fall for a pop band you have to deal with the nose bleed section.

It was a lot of fun. We rocked out and watched the really drunk girl in front of us who kept standing up on this table thing and fling herself around. I think she was dancing but it looked more like seizures and honestly I think my whole section was just waiting for her to fall. It was amazing how good she was at staying on her feet all things considered.

The really cool thing about the show was that Kanye came out and did a song with them. It was a great surprise. The really sucky thing was that I forgot my camera. I never forget my camera. Oh well no pictures of the drunk girl or Maroon 5.

So now I just read some blogs and wait for sleep to kick in. My knees are bothering me from the rain we've been having. I know I sound like I'm an old lady but I'm not I just have bad knees. And I can't sleep with they ache...or walk but I don't need to walk to sleep thank god. So I'm waiting for the painkillers to kick in so the sleep can come. I'm just sleeping on the couch tonight since the boyfriend is all snuggled up in bed at the moment and after the last couple a days he needs all the rest he can get.

I do have an interesting story from yesterday morning. I was on the bus on my way to work knitting way on the front of my jumper (I swear pictures will be posted one of these days) and I spot a co-worker from our accounting department. We say hi and chat a bit and go back to our commutes. Later in the day we run into each other again and he says to me yah I knew it was you once I saw the knitting. Yup I'm now known around work as the knitter. I don't know if that's good our bad since I work for a very old boys club private equity firm but its who I am and I'm not going to fight.

Oh if there are typos, don't judge its late and I'm rambling.

Sounds like you have a good reputation to me!

I probably would have "accidentally" kicking the table that the Pro-Dancer was standing on. Ya know ... give me people a little bit more show for their money. She wouldn't have noticed anyway. *snicker* :)

I'm assuming "we" includes Boyfriend? If so, glad to hear all is getting better and he's getting out. ;)

Yup the boyfriend and I went out for the first time in what feels like a long long time. It was a lot of fun!
