How cool am I?

in It IS all about me

How cool am I? Why, thanks for asking. I am, in fact, way wicked cool. And terribly impressed with my sassy self at just this moment.

What’s got me so excited? Tickets to see Rush in concert, baby! The last great concert I need to see. I’ve been a Rush fan since I was ten years old and Moving Pictures came out – it was one of the first LP albums I ever owned. Geddy Lee is one of my personal heroes and Neil Peart is a demi-god. Rush!!

And not only am I cool enough to be going, but I’ve already got my tickets when they don’t even go on sale to the general public until Friday.

*pauses for ohs and ahs of befuddled wonderment and whispers of amazed curiousity*

I was futzing about on the ticketmaster.ca site, trying to figure out the prices, and I found something about advance fan-club sales. So I went on the Rush site, and followed the links on tour portion of the Web site. It gave me the secret code and I was in like Flynn! (And ya gotta know that only people who are so secure in their ultimate coolness are comfortable to use a phrase as hokey as “in like Flynn”, let me tell you.)

Rush! Me! In September! Squee!!

Long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away (Windsor Ontario circa 1981), I was in grade 12, discussing a boyfriend with my best friend Connie. I was about to break up with him when Connie said, “Don’t do that yet, he has Rush tickets as a surprise for your birthday”. I didn’t. The concert was amazing. Max Webster opened (Kim Mitchell’s band before he became just plain Kim Mitchell) and Rush was just incredible. Tom Sawyer still gives me goosebumps. I’m sure you’ll have a great time.

My husband bought Rush tickets yesterday. He’s given me first right of refusal… thinking of taking his cousin, but may have to change my mind about my “maybe” LOL.

See you there, Dani
