New Year's Eve with Edwin McCain...

I have been crazy-busy at work yesterday and today! Happy NeW Year, your new job is way busy. That's fine with me. I work best under pressure. Why is it I have to log in to "old blogger". Like, I'm no longer cool, or what?

So, how was your New Year's Eve? I am pretty much the only one who left the housethat I know of. I'm glad I went out, cus that is just sad! I prepared for the evening by watching my Edwin McCain DVD's. Driving CP nuts I'm sure by announcing each time increment as "5 hours and 33 minutesuntil we see Edwin". All while downing a bottle of American Red wine. We stopped offat Starbucks before the show, for a pick-me-up.

Once we got there, we got our party hats, and drinks, and stood around waitingfor Edwin to grace us with his presence. One of the opening bands was a localband from Columbus called Red Wanting Blue. They were pretty cool, and I'm gonna check them out. They have a myspace if you want to hear their tunes.I loved their music. We got a spot about 3 people deep down in front. Edwin came out about a quarter to 12, and when I first saw him I thought that's an imposter.

All his hair is gone. He normally grows it long, and cuts it about shoulder length, but he had a buzz cut. He made a joke about never betting against a Clemson gamebut then said he donated it to locks of love. Cus...who the hell wouldn't wantEdwin's hair? He's the sweetest ever. He got through a song and a half, and then they pulled the bigscreen down and we watched the ball drop.

As usual, I'm screaming, and singing at the top of my lungs. The girl in front of me turned around at one point and said "you go girl". I said "Am I being too loud?" and she said no, it sounded good. Yea...so I kept doing it cus that is how I roll. I took pictures, and video of course!So, he did a cover, the seal version of "crazy". At that point, we had moved to the very front, I could have touched Edwin's bare footsies if I tried. I'm feelin it you know, singing. The new guitar player pointed right at ME and then to his ear and smiled. My big mouth was heard up on the stage! I tried to see if CP noticed but he wasn't on the ball. When the songwas over, they left the stage and the new guitar guy tossed me a water bottle. Me. I caught it in mid air with one hand. Bam. Just like that. It was fate.

CP wanted to dance with me but I wouldn't move. I even caught this on the sound of my video. "No way, we're up front!!" I crack me up. When I downloaded my video, what do you think you can hear? Not much other than too loud music (we were right by the speaker) and me...singingmostly off-key. It is pretty hilarious for everyone else, but I'm kinda pissedI ruined my edwin videos!

So, in the meantime, enjoy this movie I made with microsoft movie maker. I was addicted tothis project for hours. I added some Edwin songs, and a little countdown of the new yearat the end. It's all my pictures from the concert. Enjoy! I know I did!
