I don’t know about you, but I had a fabulous weekend, so I’m just going to gush about it for a little bit! Admittedly, it’s taken me a couple of days to sort of process it all and let the details settle. And if you follow me on Facebook at all, you probably already know this stuff, but here it is again in case you missed it. So this happened on Saturday when I went to the SMKC concert in Northfield, OH.
I LOVE this guy so freaking much! We had a great conversation about music and writing, and I actually behaved like a normal, thinking person and not a star-struck, blubbering idiot. I was so proud of myself! Of course, Todd made it easy for me, he was very welcoming and engaging, and he shocked me several times during the meet and greet just by knowing who I was. I mean, just imagine how caught off guard you would be when someone you follow and admire a great deal actually knows who you are before you introduce yourself. Todd started off our conversation by saying, “So I didn’t realize before that you are actually a writer. I’m gonna have to read some of your stuff!” And I just kind of stared at him, completely dumbstruck for a few seconds before I finally remembered how to talk! And the only thing going through my head in that moment was how do you even know this information about me? It was a surreal experience, let me tell you. One I won’t soon forget!
It was an absolutely AMAZING night – the concert was incredible, of course. Slash kicked some serious ass, as always! Myles never sounded better! The whole band was on point and rocking. Got to hear “30 Years To Life” live, finally. Oh, and that shirt I’m wearing in the pic … I got Todd to sign that with my silver Sharpie. Now I just need to find a t-shirt frame!
As I said to my friend Janette later (and to anyone else who was willing to listen to me ramble on) BEST NIGHT EVER! Spoke briefly to Frank, got a hug and a picture with Fitz.
But DAMMIT made the night special, in so many ways! Thanks for being so awesome Mr. Kerns!
Well, that’s all I got for you today. Hope you have a great one. It’s back to the writing cave for me now as I try frantically to finish up the first draft of my current work in progress, Soul Stealer. Peace out!
