hanging out with the Ladies

This has absolutely nothing to do with knitting, but it is the thing that has made me really happy when I haven't been particularly happy lately, so I'm posting it here anyway.

I've been a fan of the Barenaked Ladies since I started college. That probably gives an indication of how much of a dork I am, but they were part of what kept me (somewhat) sane in college, and I love them and their music. I've met a couple of the guys in the band before, Kevin at his solo concerts and Steve at a free concert he did last summer. But I had never met Ed, and Ed has always been my favorite.

BNL did a concert at BU on Wednesday night, which was fabulous. After the concert I spent two hours hanging out behind the loading dock, with a host of other slightly crazy fans. So, I look crap in the following picture, between being utterly exhausted (it was taken at 2 am) and having had truck fumes spraying my skin for two hours. But I am very happy crap in this picture.

I met Ed! And he was so sweet. I also met Tyler and Jim, and talked to Kevin and Steve again, and had a generally wonderful time. But meeting Ed kind of fulfilled a ten year dream, so that has made me very happy, which I really needed.
