Fortune favors the brave

Right, so, well, ehm....

Early this morning, I stopped at the local main post office to get 2 tickets to Jamiroquai. The sale had only started 80 minutes before I arrived, but already all standing tickets were sold out. Whoah. I settled for the 'best available' tickets and got two seats at a nice angle on the first ring. I didn't have any idea whom to take with me, but hey, with 3 months to go, shouldn't be hard to find someone. bander crossed my mind, or a longtime friend of mine from Maastricht, but then suddenly it hit me.

I arrived at work, asked around a bit and discovered that The Girl I Fancy was working as well. (see here if you missed my previous entry about her). I gathered my courage, stepped up to her while she was flinging clay/loam at a newly built wall and asked her what kind of music she liked. Her first answer was Disney. Wahey! Then she started about soundtracks, Ally McBeal and such. I asked her opinion about Jamiroquai and she said he makes good music.
Me: "I got tickets for Oct. 7 in Rotterdam. Are you brave enough to go to a concert with me?"
She: "Hehe, sure."
Me: "Cool. It's a date then."
She: "Okay."

So.... sorry to disappoint you guys, but the ticket is gone. To a very good cause I might add. Next tasks: Try to take her out for a drink somewhere between now and the concert, and ask around for a nice place close to Ahoy for an after-concert drink.

Was listening to Live 8 on the way home. The Who on stage. So you expect them to play something classic from Tommy or such. No way. First song: Who are you - Theme song from CSI. Second song: We won't be fooled again - Theme song from CSI Miami. Silly guys.

Wow, people still reference Ally McBeal?

Sorry ... pop culture never ceases to amaze me.

You don't seem to be the only one disappointed that The Who didn't play anything from the Tommy Album LOL. One of my friends here in Holland was on MSN with me while they played and she was so pissed that no Tommy songs were played...
