Bloggers are those

Last night was Blogger Night at the KSO and it was pretty freaking sweet.

Reasons I thought it was sweet:

1) I got to meet Frank Murphy

Okay, that's not totally factual. Here's what went down.

I went downstairs. Frank was there. He said, "Hi Stephanie" because he totally recognized me (probably because of my banging hair) and shook my hand. Then I introduced him to Jason. Then I told him we had come downstairs to go to the bathroom and he told me that it was probably unnecessary for me to tell him that and I told him I like to keep it real.

Then, we were going up the stairs and Jason said, "Had you met him before?" and I said, "No. But I'm kind of a big deal".

It was hilarious.

Well, to me it was hilarious.

2) I also got to see Angie and Mark. They were actually seated behind us so we got to chat. They? Are good people.

3) The lady next to Jason fell asleep a bunch of times.

4) I don't know how that lady fell asleep because the show was absolutely amazing. Here is a link to the show details. I wish you all could have been there because there is just no way for me to describe how awesome it was. Angie has a much better description of the music on her blog. I played the piano for years but never got much beyond "When the Saints go Marching in" and "Row, row, row your boat", thus I am not much of an expert on such things.

5)The Tennessee Theatre is glorious. Jason and I could not get over how beautiful it was.

6)The blogger reception was nice. Angie (again!) has a good picture of Jason and I talking with Frank on her blog. Unfortunately we had to leave kind of early (it was late for us, especially on a Thursday night) and by the time we got downstairs I was really feeling rather...unfortunate. Jason said I was something like "socially inept", but the real truth was I woke up ill at 2:15 this morning and I think that was why I wasn't so much myself. Or maybe I'm just socially inept. Either way. (And sorry for that visual)

7) Frank reminded me that I need a link to buy my book on my sidebar. So I have it now. Thanks Frank! (If you want to buy the book, I would be okay with that)

8)I was reminded how much very I enjoy such things. And I was so impressed with the KSO. I've seen the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic and the performance I saw last night was truly on the same level.

Thanks KSO for a great show!

Sounds like fun was definitely had! Also, the picture of you and Jason on Angie's blog? Every single man in that photo has a beard. Is Tennessee the land o' beards or something? :-p

My grammar totally sucked in my last comment. Oops.

I'm just tickled that we got to spend some time with you guys last night. Maybe next time Cancun?

(the restaurant, not the city.) Although. . . .. ;)

That sounds fun! But I have to say that I would also have been intimidated. Im glad you had such a great time, and so many people got to meet you--you being the big deal and all! LOL
