Finally getting to my pics.....
After a week and a half I'm finally uploading my pictures from the Papa Roach show on Nov 1. What can I say, time got away from me!! So, on my night off I went through 2000 photos and posting them to my facebook and flickr accounts. Oh yeah, guess I can blog about the show too!! ;)
Got to the venue around 12:30, met Yoyo and Ryan (retarded_dinosaur) and a few of the VIP people. My hubby hung out with us for a little while then went to the bar at the venue. (could only afford 1 VIP) We waited for a while, ok, it was a little longer than we expected, finally got our laminates and posters and waited until 4ish and finally got let in for the sound check. Let me tell you, I haven't been that close to the stage for a show since my son was a freshman in high school, he's finishing off his first year of college!! It was an amazing experience, I took a few pics and had fun! They did a few songs and the last one they asked us what we wanted to hear, Broken Home or Reckless, we shouted Reckless, the funny thing was they almost forgot how to play it. After that we got taken downstairs to wait while they got ready for the meet & greet/photo. Everyone was buzzing with excitement and anxious to get to the M&G. I was really nervous! They came a got us and up the stairs we went for the M&G. I think I was a little calm at this point, then it was my turn, holy shit, I thought I was going to pass out I was so nervous. Don't know why either, it's not like I haven's met them before. So here I am, hands all shaking and shit, handing them the "Crackhead" cookies I had made the night before. Tony asked me if there was more than just cookie dough in the cookies, I had a funny comeback but dammit if I didn't say it (I was going to say "There may or may not be crack in these cookies" a joke between me, my son and his friends but I think they would have gotten it). We talked about my tattoo's and about how that was my last big thing considering I was losing my job at the end of the month, they said I could always get into selling medical marajuana and I lost it, at this point Jacoby grabbed me and gave me a big hug, they all signed a t-shirt I brought and Jacoby drew a Crackhead on it for me too. Tobin still has my silver sharpie!!
