ok, so i have riDIculous amounts of work i should be doing, but i got home from gospel choir tonite and checked my email, and i just HAD to post this, because, well... it made my month.

:: preface :: i attended the guster concert at WorkPlay in birmingham last wednesday, which was this tiny little venue where iames and i were practically on top of the band... [oh, to be on top of brian rosenworcel... if only. ::sigh::]

...but i digress.
many pictures of the evening are forthcoming, but for now, i just have to show you this.
the first is an email i sent to the guster guys before the concert, and well...
see for yourself!

hey there guster boys!

as you MIGHT be able to tell from the epic-length subject line, i will be attending the show at WorkPlay in Birmingham this wednesday, and i cannot wait! this will be my third guster show, and as always i'll be front and center, ping pong balls in hand, ready to rock!

the shows i've been to in the past have both been at the ryman in nashville, and you may actually remember me from the most recent one... i was the silly girl who drove all the way from auburn, alabama - got a SPEEDING TICKET to boot - but it was well worth it! i had backstage passes for before the show, so i was there for the sound check, and then i got to meet you all before the show - if it helps you remember, i was the one with the little sister who played french horn who couldn't be there, so i had you all sign stuff for her. [brian, you also talked to her on the phone later that night, which she STILL hasn't stopped talking about - thanks again for that!] you also helped me and a few of my friends "sneak" upstairs after the show, which was a blast! [for my personal play-by-play of the evening, if you're just really bored and looking for something to read, you can look at my online journal at http://www.livejournal.com/users/moonbend/43478.html - then again, i read YOUR journal all the time, so you could probably suck it up and read mine just this once.]

now brian, i'm going to remind you of something you said to me that night, because i'm sure that after all this time has passed, you've probably forgotten. when i talked to you before the show, you said that since i'd driven 5 hours AND gotten a speeding ticket to be there to see my FAVORITE band, i could have anything i wanted. well, i asked one thing of you... ONE THING... and you couldn't do it for me. i asked you to play "diane" [which in my humble opinion should be spelled with 2 n's, but that's another e-mail]. you said you couldn't do it, because it wasn't on the set list, and you hadn't practiced enough - after the show, you apologized for not playing it...

well, i have a request:
make it up to me. ::smile::

if it would be at ALL possible, could you play "dianne" [some liberty taken with the spelling] for me in Birmingham? once again, i'm driving several hours to see you, and it would make my night!

...if not, i GUESS i'll understand. ::SIGH:: but regardless, since i'm sure you don't remember me, i've been kind enough to include links to pictures of me with you guys to refresh your memory...

bri & di

ry & di

adam & di

so be on the lookout for me...
i'm counting the hours!

much love,
dianne... with 2 n's.

now, for the REALLY exciting part...
