Recapping My Birthday 
15th-Dec-2007 05:56 pm
Last night was fantastic. I got to have my birthday dinner with my best friends and family, which was barbecue with all the trimmings. Just before dinner was served, D gave me a beautiful present and asked me to unwrap it before we had the table full of plates and dishes. I opened it up, and lo and behold - he'd found me a copy of the Sigur Rós Heima DVD that I've been wanting so desperately and unable to procure, and he found it yesterday afternoon at our local fye store, of all places. Not ONLY did he find it, he found the special deluxe limited edition version, the one I had abandoned all hope of finding!!! I have the best boyfriend on the planet, I really do.

After dinner we went to see Sugarland at the civic center. There were two openers, Jake Owen and Little Big Town. Jake Owen was not bad, but LBT sucks balls - extra vinegary ones. One of the most boring shows ever. Sugarland absolutely delivered, and the show was really amazing - not just sonically, but the stage show and multimedia presentation was pretty stellar as well. It's their first headlining tour, and they wore it out. They did 4 covers last night, first was their bluegrass version of Beyonce's "Irreplaceable", then they did U2's "Where The Streets Have No Name", The Dream Academy's "Life In A Northern Town", & Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar On Me" - & during the last two they had Jake Owen & LBT come back on stage for a final all-show encore/grand finale.

We got home around 11:30PM and after I got D to bed, I put Heima on and watched it while listening with the surround sound headphones. I cannot even tell you how amazing it is, but expect a post to come soon all about it. Too tired right now - it's been a long day.

Thanks to everyone that wished me a happy birthday, I sincerely appreciate it! IT WAS A GREAT EVENING!!

Was great to hear the details of your birthday celebration, and the Sigur Ros news.

Sometimes we are cared for. ;)

You have GOT to find this DVD, Joe - it's one of the more perfect things they have ever done.

Yes indeed!

oh wow i totally didn't realize it was your birthday!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!

Did you get to talk to Jennifer as you had hoped? I imagine not, since you didn't mention it...hopefully you'll be able to re-connect during the holidays. :) it's always good to see old friends, yah? Anyway, glad you had fun--but I totally agree with you about the openers!!!

Yep - all day yesterday! Thanks!

No, but I had a great time despite that. LBT simply isn't my cup of tea.

LBT doesn't grab me at all. Don't know Jake Owen though.

Sugarland?!?!? *envy* They are one of the few bands that I won't pirate music from. *shakes head* They are good enough for me to buy their music sight-unseen. They define the word eargasm *nods*

*Hugs* Glad you had a great birthday!

Jennifer is a friend of mine, has been for over 10 years now. With fame and stardom has come the thing I knew would come, naturally the fact that she is virtually untouchable to me these days. I haven't seen her in two years and I miss my friend terribly, but it's great watching her career take off!

You should hear her solo stuff!!

Belated happy birthday!

May the following year inflict on you no more than half the eye-gouging drama as last year! (hopefully MUCH less) ;)

Thanks, love - and FUCK TO THE YEAH!!

You share a birthday with my deceased father.

Happy Birthday (1 day late)

That's not the first time someone has said that to me, believe it or not.

Thanks for thinking of me!

Aww, Happy Birthday!! That is so sweet of him that he found you the DVD! I concur with you that he does sound like the greatest boyfriend ever :)

I loved that video you posted a while back of Sugarland's Irreplaceable, I listened to/watched it on repeat. Fabulous.

I'm glad you had a wonderful birthday, you deserve it. I hope the coming year is full of happiness and love for you.
