I have never lied or sought to alter the truth. My only vice has been one of envy for those who have...but now I can hold my head high.
I travelled to Birmingham yesterday for the closing UK date of Rush last night. After a twenty three year obsession I, I...I FINALLY GET TO SEE RUSH LIVE...FOR THE THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE...EVER!!!
I never seemed to have the finances having had children so young and I had to endure friends return from shows with tales of glee but now I have my own story. I hope you dont think anything less of me, believe me I've punished myelf over the years for not being a 'true' fan.
I have to help my son with his homework so a full report will follow.
I will admit to a few tears during the opening medley. I sang along to every song, gave the air drums a beating (much to the amusement of my mate) and I was the only one in my section to stand at the end of Neil's solo (more emotion) to show my Repsect. Being the rebels we are, we ignored the no smoking policy and took a few spliffs to the show. I will never forget lighting up to the opening blast of Tom Sawyer, TOM SAWYER!!! Another of 'those' moments for sure. I phoned the wife during the acoustic Resist (one of her faves) and she shared the entire song with me. What a night.
Much more to follow, I know you've seen them a multitude of times but I havent ok? :-) .
Thanks for listening, a complete Ogg.

*blows her nose*

Me and duct tape? Oh, that started back during my .net days. H and I helped duct tape someone, and, well, it just followed us here. Besides, when Ogg is in a good place, he kinda likes it.
Onward and Upward!
