Good Times and Rock and Roll....

So we went to see the Cult perform at the Masonic Temple today.....me Dawn and Ash were able to make it to the Show, as well as my awesome commenter Blepharisma, who I have known since I was 4 or something like that. And I hadnt seen her in a while, so it was awesome to see her.

So we meet up, hang out, the Cult did a three song set, as well as an interview for the show...it was awesome. They sounded awesome, except the band was so loud, you couldnt really hear Ian perfectly.....

Mentionable moments??

- Ian had snake skin Cowboy boots on....Thats breaking my rule #1. Yuck....cowboy boots.

- Dawn's good eye caught the duct tape across his cowboy boots....silver duct tape, strung across his boot...after the show, when we all parted our own ways, the MTV staff joked about it being a new fashion statement.....I mentioned that I had a friend who was trying to bring the "fanny pack" back....not like it was ever "in" to begin with.

- Ian Winked at Dawn...and yes, he's old...and he wobbled all over tth stage like he was ridiculously drunk, and had big buggy eyes...but come ON....Its the Cult......5% margin of error

All in all, it was a GREAT time...if you are interested in checking out the 2 song performances they did for the internet, the site is www.mtv.ca, and then you just have to find the episode of their performance.

Other mentionable moments of the day??

I met up with Jennifer for lunch. After we finished, I went upstairs with her back to the office, and was blah blah blahing while she was working....and she had this huge mail merge to do, so she asked me if I would stay and help her with it....after much bitching about not wanting to volunteer my services, I stayed...and helped her.....

Bought myself the MOST gorgeous Miu Miu purse.....Miu Miu people!!! I picked it up, and immediately fell in love with it, it was like that scene in the first harry potter movie...when he touches his wand for the first time....his hair blows all over the place, and a light shines on him....That's exactly what it was like for me....When I touched this purse...it was like a choir of heavenly angels...and finding the holy grail...*spare all Da VInci jokes please*

Anyway, I had the BEST Day...and after 6 hours of sleep, in the past 48 hours...i'm beat. Night all...happy weekend

Hi Princess- WooHoo! I'm number 1! Ian winking at Dawn is funny. I have no freaking idea what a Miu Miu purse is. It can't be very good if they have to make you say the name twice just so you remember it.

Princess Pessimism said...

Phil....Miu Miu is the Prada Sport line. I LOVE IT....

HE did wink at Dawn, he was looking down, and he winked, and then I looked over at her, and she was staring right at him...but she never saw it. I saw him wink at her, and ash saw him wink, but wasnt sure if it was directed at anyone...but he was definitely looking at her.

Princess Pessimism said...

Oh...and by the way phil...if you leave comments at 6:50AM on a saturday, or ANY DAY for that matter...you will always be the first...who's UP at that ungodly hour??? LOL

Its pronounced Meow Meow I presume? Here kitty kitty here....

Cult, purses, winks, reading between the lines...limos, chaueffers, butlers.....you are living the Canadian dream.

Miss Ash said...

Ian looked like a startled homeless man....the duct tape didn't help matters LOL

rawbean said...

Wow sounds like an action packed day! Way to score on the purse! You should post a picture so we can all bask in it's glory!

Big Ben said...

Usually women get pretty upset if a drunk old man winks at them. But if you are a rock star it is alright?

berly02 said...

Miu Miu purse?
Really?
Once again I am experiencing envious feelings toward another.

Princess Pessimism said...

Yrautca - LOL!!!...no, it's not pronounced Meow Meow...HAHAHA.

Ash - He did. I completely agree...when he was stumbling all over the stage...i was rather entertained by his bug eyes.

Rawbean - Trust me...I was thinking of posting a picture to accompany this post....you read my mind....you think I should?

Princess Pessimism said...

Ben - the key to it is, if you are winked at by a dirty old rockstar, it's OKAY if you liked their band, or still do. It is NOT Okay if you did not like their band. For example, if the lead singer of nickelback winked at me, i'd probably call him a disgusting asshole...I dont like their music. But see, when Ian winked at our friend...that was cool...cause he's a in cool band that we used to love...and we used to think he was hot. It all balances itself out

Berly - I love my purse....like the kind of love I would have for my own child...which is why I cant have kids...i'm too greedy. I want all my money for me. =)

rawbean said...

yes post purse picture!

Princess Pessimism said...

RAwbean - Okay...tomorrow or the next day...i have to wait until I get back to my webcam

Natalia said...

I think that's an altogether great time indeed. Dude...some people are just cool no matter how old they are. The Cult...is still The Cult. Period.

Miu Miu...nice treat! *blocks urge to go shopping*

Scott said...

Sounds like a great time! Glad that you had a good time.

Scott

Princess Pessimism said...

Natalia - You're absolutely right....like, no matter how old robert smith gets...he's still robert smith. LOL!!! I know you're trying not to shop becuase of your house...sorry!!! LOL

Scott - Ya, we did have a great time. Thanks

Jennifer said...

Thanks for the help with the enoromous mailing, it made a huge difference.

Jennifer said...

I actually do know how to spell enormous

Was a great time INDEEEED. Thanks again for pulling me out of work for that one.

I was worried that they wouldn't sound as good as I remembered. Luckily they still sound FANTASTIC.

Ian... well, he's not as pretty anymore. I think he'd still be ok if he shaved and stuff, he just looked a little gruff for my tastes.

Add one to my crazy day list: seeing the old high school crush. I can't believe he was there!

The whole experience left me feeling like I was in high school again.

Lord, Phil and his #1 poster slot. I'm thinking he's coming down with some sort of sickness. :o)
