almost given up looking into people’s eyes

Rachel setting up her keyboard

  • I believe in supporting artists and their art. I buy more music than I should. I brought Rachael’s newest album from Amazon.
  • Since I don’t live in the area, I didn’t know Rachael Sage’s concert was a gay pride event. I was surprised! This was my first gay pride event (and hopefully not the last). Cool. Anyhow, I thought this was just a regular concert. I didn’t even know Rachael was gay prior to the concert but one of her songs did make me wonder but I thought, “nah”.
  • I never carry cash.
  • I took two beta blockers just so I could have this weird semi-smile on my face. Without it, I’ve been perceived as angry. I tried to smile. I hope it was a smile. Rachael smiled back at me so I’m guessing it was a success.
  • I wish more people had shown up. Besides one couple and the other performers, everyone was shy. (Shy is awesome 🙂 but we need some extroverts too).

With that out the way…just clearing the air. The Rachael concert was so awesome. She hugged me. I don’t hug humans but I sorta hugged her back. OMG. She also personally signed her painting. Now I can’t frame it because I always have to be able to see the back of the artwork.

We made eye contact several times. I was sitting right in front of her. Rachael is the opposite of shy. She is the most extroverted performer I have EVER seen. Most musicians I like fall into the quiet, introvert type so I was shocked by her. She is a comedian. I can tell she majored in theater (at Standford, I think?).

Needless to say the show was fantastic. She even got up and sang right beside me. She got in the chair right in front of me and sang. It was surreal.

Her manager Wendy was super nice. Thanks for the tickets and for suggesting Rachael sign the artwork.

It could have been a complete disaster. That is why I did the bullet points at the beginning of this entry. Heh. Certain people made comments and those points are my um, points. Every story has two sides. 🙂 I’m going to post more about the concert in my music blog.

I cropped out the part where she personalized it because I don’t want my name shown on this blog. She signed it, “For —-” heart shape  xoxo

Rachael XO’ed me! 🙂 🙂

Sky, my betta fish died. 😦 I’m thinking of ordering 3 african dwarf frogs to put into that aquarium. It is so hot so I’m not sure if they will ship here. They don’t like to ship anywhere that is over 90 degrees. Of course the 90 degree heat starts tomorrow. I wish I could find a local pet store that sell them. I have checked all but one pet store. My other frogs (M & M) are doing fine. They always want more food.

SICK. Still sick. Since I’m a new patient, I can’t see my doctor for 2+ weeks. Sometimes I can eat but yesterday I just gave up trying to work after lunch. I felt so bad that I called the nurse line. She told me to go to the urgent care center since I can’t see my doctor. But I FELT TOO SICK to actually get dressed and drive to the center so of course I didn’t go. I was so frustrated. The sickness comes and goes. I guess I can wait until July. I hope I can.

Save the best for last. WORK. I facilitated a teleconference today. I have too much on my mind to be really embarrassed. It was a minor disaster. 🙂 What did you expect? For me to shine at talking??! LOL. Gosh, I really sucked. The only thing I did right was saying, “good morning”. In the past I would have felt mortified after the meeting but I’m dealing with a lot of crap right now. I’m trying to sell my house. DMV won’t listen to me. I’m sick and I don’t know why. Who cares about a stupid meeting?

I do wish my manager had been able to attend because I know my supervisor probably made it seemed it was much worse than it was. She called me a monster from the movie, “Scream” so yeah, she doesn’t like me. hehehe. (SHOCKER!) My manager is a little nicer and lenient. She may have thought I did better……….I don’t know. It was a total waste of time! The freakin’ end.
