Today was chock-full of Lollapalooza goodness! I took pictures but haven’t looked through them yet. If I have any good shots I’ll do a picture post in the near future. I showed up freakishly early for the Snow Patrol concert (’cause I love me some Snow Patrol and wanted to be closer to the front). So I got a good hour of people-watching in. It served as a reminder of how catty women can be and why I prefer to spend my time with guys.
There was another stage within close-ish proximity to Snow Patrol’s stage and Regina Spektor was performing. Sitting on a blanket in front of me were two females, a blonde and a brunette, who, well, were those girls from high school. You know who I’m talking about. The girls who spent their weekends shopping at the trendiest stores in the mall and got manicures and bikini waxes. The girls who were cheerleaders, dating the star athlete and barely maintaining a passing GPA. Those were the girls sitting in front of me with their oversized sunglasses and gum popping. The blonde looks over at the stage where Regina is performing and haughtily says, “Hi, I’m ugly and I can’t sing–mah mah mah.”
It really annoyed me. Now, I’m not a Regina Spektor fan persay, but a comment like that is just… rah. I wanted to say something like, “She’s making an ungodly amount of money performing on stage for cheering fans. What are you doing?” Alas, I did not.
In work-related news, Marty is finally back! I don’t think I ever posted that he was gone, but in mid-April part of an elevator ceiling fell and broke his foot. So he’d been out this whole time healing and doing physical therapy and whatnot. It was great seeing him again tonight. We talked for a while and it was just like old times. Nice.
