britney concert

Girl Scout cookie time! YUM. I bought 2 boxes today. Gah. No self-control whatsoever.

Anyway, I had loads of fun at the Britney concert! I’m such a Britney fangirl, hee. It was a sold out show and I was very surprised that it was a much, much older crowd than her previous tour. This time I didn’t stick out like a sore thumb. Hee.

Here’s the set list and costume changes rundown, lol.

Opening — Britney came out on a moving platform wearing a skintight black leather catsuit
Toxic
Overprotected
Boys
Showdown

Lounge Club/Cabaret Themed — she changed into a racy pink underwear ensemble and black fishnet stockings
Baby One More Time (I did not like this remix AT ALL. Too slow and jazz-y for me. Give me the pop tart version any day.)
Oops… I Did it Again
Crazy (YAY! An oldie but goodie!)

Jungle/Garden Themed — she wore a gorgeous blue/green/yellow dress
Everytime (She played the piano for the first few verses!)
The Hook Up
I’m a Slave 4 U (probably one of my most favorite performances of the night — loved the choreography and the dancing)

Cirque de Soleil Themed — she was elevated on a swing and was wearing another gorgeous blue dress
Shadow

Bedroom Themed — Whoa! Britney came out wearing a fluffy white bathrobe which she took off to reveal the diamond suit from the Toxic video! Guys in the audience were DYING.
Touch of my Hand (lots of uh, touching)
Breathe On Me (she quickly changed into another pink bra and panties set and danced intimately on a bed with one of her dancers)
Outrageous

Closing — she wore a cute pink tank top with baggy pants
(I Got That) Boom Boom (another audience favorite — very fun and totally high energy)

The encore was Me Against the Music which to be honest, left me a little underwhelmed. It was the same performance that I’ve seen at all the award shows and appearances that she’s done. She was even wearing the same suit and jacket outfit as her video (but it was a beautiful shade of red). Well, whatever — the rest of the concert was great fun so I can overlook the encore. 😉

Hopefully I’ll get the chance to scan the tourbook this weekend — lots of pretty pretty pics!

random

Totally random blog cause I’m medicated and just a little bit loopy…

In addition to being sick this past week, I lost a contact lens. So I had to wear my glasses. Guh. I have a really high prescription and my glasses are *heavy.* They weigh down on my face and give me a headache after a few hours of wearing them. They are evil. I have to wait a week, I think, for my new contact lens. This upsets me.

I’m also upset because I don’t have a 3-day weekend like the rest of my company. Humph. My division doesn’t have Monday off. Apparently we don’t recognize President’s Day as a holiday.

I also realize that my creekdaze domain is redirecting to some other site. My registrar messed up. %$#@! They keep telling me that it’s going to be fixed soon… *screams*

Some good news — I got my Britney Spears tickets! Hee. I didn’t manage to score free tickets from work but a co-worker did give me a head’s up when a second round of tickets was released to the general public. They’re lower level tickets but they’re pretty far back. Not as good as I would have liked but it’s cool. The only down side is that the concert is on a Tuesday (March 9)! Madness.

Okee dokee… gonna go get ready for Valentine’s Day dinner with Rob. 🙂 We’re going to have seafood. Mmm… YUM.

janet and justin

So I didn’t watch the Super Bowl but I always make it a point to watch the halftime show. I thought it was pretty… meh. Even Janet and Justin couldn’t save it for me. And I normally love them.

Remember when I was all upset because I didn’t get tickets to the upcoming Britney Spears tour? Well, I just found out some news that may or may not help me out. It turns out that my company is producing the tour. !!! There *has* to be some way for me to score some tickets. Right?!? I just need to find the right people. This will be my goal at work tomorrow. Hehe.

back to the daily grind

So it’s my first day back to work and I’m there until 8pm. !!! DIE DIE DIE. I’m still jet-lagged and all I wanted to do was go home and rest and watch 24. Is this too much to ask?

Anyway, I’m trying to catch up on all the pop culture gossip/TV spoilers/fandom fun that happened while I’ve been gone and WOW… lots of stuff. Little Miss Joey Potter (Katie Holmes) has gotten herself engaged. Aww. Don’t really have much of an opinion on Chris Klein but I think they make an adorable couple. Both beautiful and all that. And hee! I have to admit, I’m a huge fan of Britney Spears but seriously, what is wrong with her?!? Getting married? And it was a practical joke? Eeep.

Speaking of Britney, Rob and I are *pissed* that we didn’t get tickets to her upcoming tour. We both thought the tickets were going to be sold a bit later than they were so we missed it! Grrr. I was really looking forward to it. 😀

disappointment

Ugh, I hate disappointing people. Yesterday I was scheduled to work an event for a radio station where I do occasional work — well, I told them that was okay and they said they would send me all the relevant information via FedEx (this was 2 weeks ago). By Friday night, I still hadn’t received anything, which is their customary way of saying that the event was cancelled. So I stay up late and all that good stuff and Saturday morning, I am greeted to a message on my answering machine telling me that I was supposed to be at the event already and where am I. I felt so bad. But I seriously didn’t receive any information — through email, voicemail messages, or letter. I love working for the station but they really need to communicate with their employees much better, especially since I only work on random weekends.

Anyway, I went to see Britney Spears on Saturday night! She is such a great performer — I loved all her choreography — it really makes me miss all the dancing I used to do. Oh! There were 3 dads and their daughters (ranging from 8-14) sitting a few rows in front of us. The dads were drinking beer and dancing the entire time. Their poor daughters looked so embarassed. lol.
And yay! GO LAKERS! :p

got ’em!

::screams like a crazed teeny bopper:: I got my Britney Spears tickets! June 1st at the Oakland Arena! 😛 WOOHOO! They’re on the right side of the stage but they’re on the floor — whee! Ok, that was just one too many exclamation points. Stopping now. I still have a huge grin on my face though. I’m a slaaave for you…

britney baby!

Britney tickets go on sale this Sunday! Yay! 😀 Yes, I’m a fan – and no, I’m not ashamed. I’m going to get in line with all the 12-year old girls and buy my tickets – with PRIDE. I can’t believe I’m so giddy. It’s that damn teeny-bopper inside me.
