HANNAH MONTANA

Mrs. Blog, using Connections, was able to get some tickets to the Hannah Montana concert tonight. This is sort of like getting an audience with the Pope, only more difficult. Also the Pope does not lip-sync. But the point is, I'm about to get into a car and drive to the concert with Mrs. Blog and three insanely excited 7-year-old girls. I will attempt to post updates from the concert, assuming my body does not disintegrate from the combined shriekage of thousands of other insanely excited girls. Wish me luck.

Dave - the Remainders aren't opening?!?!

Good luck!

Shriekage....not gonna say what I thought he said, but it's often induced by shriekage.

Courage!

Ear defender muffs are very useful to own for just this type of circumstance.

Nominates Dave for blog medal of honor.

btw, I'm about to hop into the car and point it towards St. Louis. Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Dave! My sympathies!

I'm just going to get a couple of wisdom teeth removed tomorrow afternoon. Your evening may be more painful!

And I thought he said shrinkage too Annie. But it's not shriekage that does it to me, but pointing and laughter.

The pointing and gasps of amazement and appreciation, I can handle with no problems.

So I take it Sophie will be going to the concert instead of Harvard.

Dave, Michelle, Sophie, assorted friends - HAVE JOY!! :)

Isn't this a strange world we live in, where the guy who made his fame & fortune with a mullet and possibly the dumbest country song ever (Billy Ray Cyrus, "Achy Breaky Heart") would go on to have a TV career AND father the flavor-of-the-month kid sensation? He's gonna miss that soul one day...but a deal's a deal.

You'll probably be OK as long as her Dad doesn't come out and start singing "Achy-Breaky Heart"

Good Luck

Whoa! Michelle will live in legend as Mom of the Century to Sophie and her buddies. Way to go, Michelle!

Maybe he had Charlie Daniels with him, MKH, and it was some sort of compromise...


Good luck, Dave. It was nice knowing you.

I sure hope Sophie doesn't have to drive home again. Those Barbie jeeps aren't very comfortable.

Dave, I highly suggest super-industrial-strength ear plugs. And a blindfold. And alcohol. Lots and lots of alcohol. Have a great time! Drinking, that is.

Just got this nonresponse in an email -"This item is at the entry stage of our queue of proposals." WTFBBQ?
Dave, wait up - take me with you!!!!

Good Luck!!

There's no way this won't be awesome for the rest of us.

Oh man! they've gotta drive to Ft. Lauderdale in the middle of rush hour. Dave's gonna need massive quantities of beer when he gets there. HOPING they sell it there for the poor parents that have to do this.

Will you be singing along like we so at the RBR concerts?

Or will you even be able to hear, having suffered high frequency hearing loss and all the dogs withing a fifty mile radius will have participated in sympathy howling?

Isn't this a strange world we live in, where the guy who made his fame & fortune with a mullet...

******************************
Ted is Hannah Montana's dad?

Ms. Cyrus/Montana appeared at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo last year and my step-daughter wanted to go desperately. Not having any knowledge of the phenomenon that Hannah Montana had become, I fool heartedly believed that getting tickets would be a breeze. Reliant Stadium is one of the biggest in the NFL and my feeling was that I would be able to snag a ticket up close fairly easily. I went online to purchase the tickets a week out and much to my amazement the show was sold out. Undeterred, I decided to call in a favor from a friend of mine whose girlfriend is a DJ at a country station in town. I had never had a problem getting tickets from her before and knew this was my last chance outside of a ticket broker. Shot down again. She had 4 tickets at one point, but realizing their value she had sold them on Ebay for $2800, or $700 a ticket. She also told me the ticket brokers were getting upwards of $1500 a ticket since it was so close to the concert date. Needless to say, we didn't go and I had to put up with a sulky preteen. In the end, it turned out that the concert had technical problems with the stadium's sound system and a large section of the screechy little teenyboppers didn't even hear the concert. The moral of the story, raise your children to listen to classical music. The tickets are easier to come by.

*quickly switches that s for a d before anyone notices*

*tries not to notice mm used "withing" as a word...*

Doc - can't hear a word you said over the shriekage.

You'd hve to be blind not to notice the difference between an s, which is completely spherically symmetric, and a d.

You'd hve to be blind not to notice the difference between an @ss, which is completely spherically symmetric, and a d.


Yep, they're different.

If anyone needs me, I'll be back there flinging the turkey. heh!

Love those spherically symmetric @sses. Especially in a bikini.

With the kind of shenanigans one must go through to obtain Hannah Bannana tickets, I would NOT want to know Mrs. Blog's "connections". You better behave Mr. Blog. We don't want Mrs. Blog's "connections" fitting you for some new, custom-made concrete shoes.

mm is a dreadful typist, never really learned how, and additionally is doing a lot of squinting at her screen, but of course she doesn't need reading glasses!!

She really hopes that the blog will overlook her shortcomings which evidently include an annoying inclination to speak in the third person. Ahem. Sorry.

good luck dave. it was nice knowing you. i truly believe you are descending to what must truly be one of the levels of hell.

(don't bring any of those voice powered blenders.)

We still love you though, mm.

If anyone reads the Dave for President forum, there is a very amusing question from (of course) King Juan Carlos of Spain.

A la Babelfish:

The town of Spain, Dave Barry support in its search to become President of the U.S.A., because we think that it will be easier to assume the control of his country once is in Tahití. King Juan Carlos I, Madrid, Spain 11/18/07

I am thankful of the bottom of my heart by its aid. But I notice that its aid was not accompanied by a contribution in the money form. It does not do please that it strikes its end with the national foot. Thanks. Dave Barry 11/20/07

this show is ALL that is on the news tonight. amazing.

(saying silent prayer that my babies are grown...)

just a year or two ago, it was illegal to scalp tickets in miami. it was wonderful. even then, ticket brokers sucked up quite a few tickets; now, you don't have to offer a limo ride or a bottle of champagne with your 'ticket package' - you can just charge $2000 for a $25 ticket to a children's show.

assuming you don't have a consience.

p.s. i do know how to spell conscience.

amen to that, sister judi! I had to deal with Christina Aguilera (good show actually), Backdoor Boys, NSync,etc..

UGH!

Which sucks, judi. Those thieves figured out a nice little loophole and did the "package" thing. Now they're out there in full view...again. grrrrrrrr.

Maybe a suitable punishment would be to make all of the scalpers attend the concert and have their ears blownout by the shreiking 7 year olds.

Judi - my thoughts exactly !
Our youngest, at 16, is a boy, but both he and his 19 year old sister listen to classic rock. So it's like going through teenhood, musically, all over again. Imagine his chagrin, when I am driving he and his friends somewhere, forget my status as chauffer, and start singing along to Led Zeppelin, or AC/DC - BWA HA HA HA HA - embarrasment builds character !

Uh, my post was in answer to Judi's silent prayer that her babies were grown. Sorry if I killed the blog.

*checking pulse*

nah..it's just napping, tel.

I think we have a lot of people on the "productivity enhancer."

I, on the other hand, have to work. :(

And Mr. & Mrs. Blog's current predicament is exactly why I am so happy I have dogs. They may have to have surgery every once in awhile, but they will never, ever ask me to buy them concert tickets.

Kristie - you must not have Border collies. Mine expect to be taken out to play with sheep every weekend.

This concert completely justifies my decision to not have any children.

Whew ! Thanks Blog Dr. !
And Kristie, you must be a left coaster too - that's why I am such a blurker. By the time I catch up in the morning, it's too late to post, and when I do, I have to get back to work, so there is a long pause between. OK, I'll stop whining now. It's mostly because I am not as clever as all of you and I actually have to think ! But I love blurking you all and you make my day a LOT lighter ...

Pogo,

No, I have pugs.

I read a column recently about Puggles. They said that Pugs are so "low-energy" that if a bird landed on them, they'd never know it.

My puppy was spayed yesterday, and I get to pick her up tonight.

Oh, and Annie, I told my husband about what you said a few threads back about border collies being interested in Pugs because they're trying to figure out which end is the front, and we had a good laugh.

But, as Pug owners, we look beyond appearance, and love the personality within!

Stupid bot!

And yes, TPC, I'm in the Great Northwest.

The land of the 3pm sunset...

*is grateful not to have connections*

*but is secretly thrilled for Sophie*

Best of luck, Mr. and Mrs. Blog! Hope the beer tent is open!

Sorry, telecomdropout, I meant to address you, not TPC, whoever that is (although I'm sure they're a lovely person).

This is what I get for posting when I should be working...

Kristie,
Get back to work!
That is all.

Yes sir, igloo, sir!

At least it isn't High School Musical on Ice.

An unfortunately unforgettable experience, but the girls loved it and we went out to dinner before, and their mother paid for it.

That's ok, Kristie, I got it ! I'm in SoCal, the land of the endless summer. Today is the first day in a long time that we've had an actual cool day.
If you'd like to send some gentle cool rain our way, I know a few of us would be very grateful. Then we'll send it on to Georgia, where they REALLY need it !

NSSJ, welcome home (I assume)!

I haven't been turkey-flinging, but have just had company that dropped in, ever since I got off work... so that's what it's like to have a life!

Dave, who says the Pope doesn't lip sync?

Sarah: you're a better sister/aunt/friend/whatever than I for High School Musical on Ice.

Siouxie, thanks for making that turkey game sound dirty.

;)

The first concert my daughter ever went to was a family outing to see the Rolling Stones. You don't get much better than that.

They call me Aunt Sarah, but technically I'm a cousin. They sure are cute

telecom, I live in su.so.ca. too and it was an awful day today. No sun and very cold. I had to wear 3/4 length sleeves. :(

Isn't this a strange world we live in, where the guy who made his fame & fortune with a mullet and would go on to have a TV career AND father the flavor-of-the-month kid sensation? He is going to miss that soul one day, but deal is deal.
