As a nice complement to the end of school, I ended up with Bon Jovi tickets to his show in Seattle for the day after my last exams. I’ve just gotta say, he was ABSOLUTELY FRICKIN AMAZING! That man could have played three 2 hour concerts and had enough material and energy to keep the audience going for all of it – but the 2 hours that he did play were simply indescribable. I’ve gotta say it was the best concert I’ve attended to date.
One thing I hate at stadium concerts is when the artist tries to play it like a small venue and sits and chats with the audience (which nobody can hear anyway because of the echo) or plays a bunch of obscure crap that nobody knows. When I’m forking out big bucks for a big production, I better damn well be entertained – and Jon Bon totally delivered! I could go on and on for days about just how much he rocked, but I think I’ll spare you the details. Suffice to say, the show was great.
We stopped on the way home at Edaleen Dairy – a word to anyone who’s going across the line: stop there! It’s a tad out of the way at the Aldergrove/Lynden crossing, but if you like ice cream, it’s worth it! It’s a dairy farm, and from the cows to the ice cream, it’s all done there – and you can taste the difference! I recommend the Fudgy Wudgy, or Raspberry Cheesecake.
And in other news, my baby brother (the one in the Navy) got a contract, so he’s off to Esquimalt at the end of the month to work port security. If anyone who reads this happens to be near there – no corrupting the new kid who bears a slight resemblance to Justin Timberlake (circa 2000)!
