time of my life…sorta (part 2)

Published September 3, 2012 by veryjaneeyre

So, remember how I saw these guys in March?  Well…I saw them again last night. And I forgot one thing about closer seats.


Okay, I’m sure that’s not always true, but seriously, the girl 3 rows in front of us should have been beat down when she continued to hold up her “James, I’m your Worldwide girl” sign AFTER the song had been performed. (Irony of ironies: banner for venue’s way of resolving concert ruining issues was seen ON THE WAY OUT.) But to prove my no-consideration theory, the girl behind HER also held up a sign for a good portion of the concert. This video illustrates my point nicely (keep your eyes at the bottom of the video at the 23 second mark; I dealt with this chick for 2/3 of the concert! She was blocking 75% of my view. Grrr.) :

I would have pointed out their egregious error had they been closer to me.

How about some pretty stills instead?

Let’s start with the end. I still have errant confetti in my purse.

During the Beatles breakdown, Kendall asked the crowd: “What’s your favorite Beatles song?” Me: 8 Days a Week. Sister: ??? Me: What? It is. I don’t care that they didn’t cover it.

Logan singing “Help!”

Thankfully Logan is a good actor. He’d been tweeting emo lyrics a couple of times yesterday and I worried a bit that he’d be less than mentally present during the show. Sister blasted Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never, Ever Getting Back Together” from the parking lot before the show for him. Venue’s house music counteracted that though…last song we heard before BTR’s set was Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain”. Me: Stop it! You’re not helping emo boy!

Carlos is just precious.

Um, Kendall? Why are you hiding your ass? What’s with the butt-flaps?

I seriously think my sister took this just for Manda. 🙂

Kendall…before he turned into a sweat ball.

Logan singing “I Wanna Hold Your Hand”.

I’m not sure why Carlos looks upset. Could it be because Kendall’s attention is elsewhere? 😉

I’m not avoiding James for those who view this and are going “Where’s James?” Sister took MANY pics of that gorgeous man.

James is “Elevate”-ing.

So beautiful.

More perfection.

I mean seriously gorgeous.

Oh…you already know.

My two favorite guys. I tried convincing sister to “defect” to their side during “Windows Down”. Alas, we did not.

I love them.

You can thank sister for video and pics…it’s my job to keep myself upright; she does everything else. Thanks, sister!

Btw, those are MY earrings.

Also to be known as 3 reads and a (holy crap! I) wrote this.

This book was brought to my attention by this blog. I loved the Barnes and Noble ebook sample enough to put myself on the waiting list for it at my public library. I’m glad I did. I read through this book in the space of a day and a half because I just couldn’t put it down. When I did, I wanted to be reading it some more. Mindy Kaling is hilarious and I might start watching The Office just because of her.

I found this book strictly by accident. I was trolling the public library’s website, looking for an available book to download because I was jonesing for something new. The cover pulled me in. My memory is mostly fiction? I have too many friends on Facebook? (FB has my current count in the low 70s. Just how many is too many? I don’t know yet, I haven’t gotten that far.) I’m deluding myself in another 48 ways? (How can I make the madness stop? From what I’ve read so far, the madness can never be stopped. Oh, well then. I guess I’ll stop worrying about it now.) And there’s this thing called the normalcy bias which causes you to pretend everything is perfectly normal even when (or especially when) an emergency/disaster is happening. Scary.

I haven’t started reading this one yet, but it got rave reviews from my sister. It’s about this girl who is shown her “match” but he is different than who society officials (who make all the choices in everyone’s lives) are telling her to love. She then rebels (surprise, I know) and things happen. This book is the first book of a trilogy and according to amazon.com, book 3 is not due out until the end of November 2012. I really might be cranky by then.

Here’s the wrote: You Are The Star That Shines. You can thank Jason Mraz for the inspiration and my sister for the “M” rated part. She kept saying I was going to write that stuff, so I sorta did. (Ha.)
