Shake Your Groove Thang!

Tonight our Girl Scout Troop sponsored a Disco Night and it was a blast. We were all "Dancing Queens" from the little kindergarten Daisies to the teen Queen Cadettes, everyone was in their disco finest, wearing their boogie shoes and dancing the night away, at least for an hour. We started off with "Ladies Night", some of the younger girls weren't sure about the darkness and the strobe lights, but pretty soon, they started dancing like crazy. We were taking these crazy paparazzi pics in the dark and trying to figure out if the pics will come out. My daughter borrowed my flashing shoes and boogied on the dance floor. She found out first hand how your feet hurt after dancing in high heels. The girls were very creative with their outfits and a lot of sequins died for their clothes...ha ha. Overall, it was a success and we left sweaty and happy. Disco Rules!!!

Bon Jovi Still Rocking After All These Years!!

Is this man beautiful or what? On Wednesday 4/9/08, I went to see Bon Jovi & Daughtry at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. We had excellent floor seats and I was very happy. Chris Daughtry rocked the house and I was very impressed with how tight the band was. He even came out and sang with Jon during Blaze of Glory. Their voices matched and blended perfectly, it was definitely one of the highlights of the concert! Bon Jovi played for almost 2 1/2 hours. When the show started, Jon said that he was going to make sure we were sweaty and tired by the end of the show. He did come through. I danced and sang the whole time and I was soaked with sweat by the end. There were a few close calls when he came down to the floor and sang some tunes. I was closer than I was a few years ago for the Have a Nice Day tour, but still not close enough to touch him *sigh* He sang, "Make a Memory" and "Bed of Roses", slowed danced and kissed a girl that was near him and you can hear a collective sigh when he did that. The monitors had cool graphics and the stage folded up and down so you could see the graphics on them. They had a mixture of pictures, fireworks, sexy dancing chicks (during Bad Medicine) and random colors and digitized pictures of the band. The stage was 360, so the people behind Jon could see him and he also played to them. Which was cool on the video feed because you can see the audience behind him. I was bummed because they allowed cameras, so I didn't get any photographic memories of the concert, but I will remember it, like the other 4 times I've seen them. As long as they keep rockin' and Jon and Richie still have their hair, I will be a Bon Jovi Fan. "I'll be there for you", "Always!"
