Take Me Down To The Paradise City ...

OK, so CU was awesome. I didn't get a chance to post yesterday morning because, in addition to needing to maximize my sleepy sleepy, I was awakened at 5:15 a.m. by a gusher, and not the good kind. My sinuses have been on revolt for about two weeks due to the crazy amount of heat - dry heat! - we're having here in Alabama. And thusly my nose began to bleed like whoa. I didn't have my wits about me or I'd have photographed it. Very Fight Club. Anyhoo, loved Carrie. She's so gorgeous, our seats were so good, she's AMAZING vocally, and just overall hott. But she completely surprised me in her encore when she rose out of the stage in this bitchin' silver jacket and did "Paradise City" by Guns-n-Roses. I was taken back to 1988 when MSJ and I went to see Motley Crue, with GNR opening as a new act, with these tools we knew from back in the day. I will never forget going 90 mph down Interstate 10 as passengers in the rear seat of a Hyundai Excel hanging onto each other staring and going, "OMG, I hope we live!" Granted, we were more concerned with our hair staying big because in 1988 not only did I have hair, but it was big hair. MSJ's took up the entire rear view mirror. If you get the chance to see Carrie on her "Carnival Ride" tour, I highly recommend it. I only wish now I'd bought the t-shirt.

LOL, MSJ is My Sister Julie. She is my only sister but for some reason I need to qualify her in reference, like I have other sisters. She is bombtastic.
