Woah. Can I just take a minute to say how overwhelmed I am by the positive response to my anxiety post? I was so touched by each comment and email and I’m so thankful that that post resonated with so many people – I was so nervous to publish it! Thank you for making it worth it
Okay, on Monday, two major announcements were made that rocked my world.
The first announcement came via radio on the ride to work: Theresa Caputo, THE LONG ISLAND MEDIUM, will be doing a reading in Richmond, Virginia!!
I nearly drove off the rode when I heard the DJ mention giving away tickets. I think it’s a sign from the spirits that I even heard this announcement, because I normally listen to my mixed CDs on the ride to work because I don’t enjoy talk-radio.
I am so obsessed with Theresa and her show, and have no doubts about her skills (judge if you must), but I don’t know if I’m willing to cough up $120 for a ticket. I’m hoping to channel the spirits at the Landmark Theatre and have them convince someone to give this desperate blogger a ticket or two. A girl can dream, right?
The second MAJOR announcement came to me via email from my brother.
I have been a Fall Out Boy fan for a decade, but they’ve been on “hiatus” for quite some time. I loved them before they were cool, and I know that for a fact because the first time I saw them in “concert” it was at the rec center in my neighborhood. There were maybe 100 people there.
When my friend, Meghan, tweeted me the night before, I was so excited, but skeptical to get my hopes up. I mean, I’ve been waiting for this announcement for a few years now.
As soon as I got this email from my brother, I flipped out, calling him saying OHMYGODDD!!! We’re so going!
Later that day, I called him, and when he answered, I couldn’t help but sing “Where is your boy tonight? I hope he is a gentleman. Maybe he won’t find out what IIIII know: you were the last good thing about this part of town.”
He was not impressed.
Here’s the thing: tickets for BOTH events go on sale THIS FRIDAY. I’m not one to joke about serious things (yes I am) but I might have to take a Xanax or two to keep myself in check. I mean, I cannot (cannot!) let these tickets sell out without getting my hands on a pair.
Let’s chat – Anyone a fan of either Theresa Caputo or Fall Out Boy?
