Just got done talking to castor
on the phone. There was much gushing about Lilith Fair - she wants to go to the one in Detroit
next month and was all envious about how I got to go to the one in George last weekend. *Then* she told me that Chantal Kreviazuak was going to be there, and it was my turn to be all envious! I love Chantal Kreviazuak! I ran across her quite by accident when I was listening to my "Recommended Radio" on LastFM during my many, many, *many* hours spent in the UWSP Geography/GIS computer lab the last semester or two I was in school, and she has probably become one of my favorite singers. Seeing her *and* Sarah MacLachlan in concert would be *awesome*, but alas, Detroit is way far away and I doubt I could afford the trip to get there, not to mention food and a hotel for a few days. :( ::sigh:: It would totally be worth it, of course, if Emmies were there, but that still doesn't mean I could afford it. Sadness.
Also, considering how much I am not the concert type, it seems kind of silly to fly all the way back to the Midwest for one concert and then fly back out here. I suppose I could make it a visit home, but even so, Detroit is still a ways away from central Wisconsin, so I would lose a day going to and from the concert, and a third day for the concert itself, and then *another* two days on an air plane getting to and from the Midwest, which would bring my actual time in Wisconsin down to two days, and that totally wouldn't be even close to long enough to catch up with my family and all my friends before I had to head back to Washington.
Curse you logic! And lack of finances - you suck too. It would still be awesome, though. So, Emmies? If you convince Daddy A and the rest of your family, I DEMAND LOTS OF PICTURES! And possibly a t-shirt. ;)
(also, speaking of Lilith Fair - there are a bunch of pictures taken at The Gorge for the one last weekend here
, ones where you can actually see the singers and stuff. This one
is totally my favorite. Followed closely by this one
. We were one of those pink blobs waaaaay in the back thanks to Andrea's pretty pink parasol. ;) )
