Talking to Myself

I doubt I'm the only one who talks to myself, analyzes stuff, comes to conclusions etc. but I may do it more often then others. Lately though I've decided I need to stop it because it doesn't do any good anyways.

Case in point. The day after the concert in Vancouver I woke up and realized that for the first time in months, I didn't have another concert to go to. I decided I was okay with that. I had had a wonderful time the night before and I decided that I could live on the high from that concert for a long time. The problem was a little conversation I had with myself a few weeks ago, also about concerts. Can you tell I'm slightly addicted? I blame it ALL on Diane. Anyways, during that conversation a few weeks ago I was thinking about the concerts coming to the area in the next few months. George Strait at the Tacoma Dome in Washington, Randy Travis at a smaller venue in Vancouver, Rascal Flatts at GM Place in Vancouver. At that time I decided the only (ONLY) person I really wanted to see live was Brad Paisley. I've toyed around with the idea of joining his fan club for well over a year. I used to frequent his message board until he made it fan club only. He's got a great group of fans and I'd love to get back in touch with them. So, during that conversation I told myself that the only way I'd allow myself to join his fan club is if he announced a tour with a Vancouver date. That way I could apply for VIP tickets and/or M&G passes.

See where this is going?

The very day I decided that I was okay with not having a concert to go to. The day I decided I was OKAY with missing George, I was OKAY with not seeing Randy (because he's ridiculously expensive) I was OKAY not seeing Rascal Flatts (becasue I'm not *really* a fan anyway) THAT DAY, they announced the "Bonfires and Amplifiers" Tour. Brad on a 30-some date tour with a Vancouver stop scheduled for May 22nd.

::sigh::

I'm going to quit talking to myself.

I haven't decided if I want to actually try for tickets and stuff. Especially with the new developments of my Texas trip. I'm worried that if I don't I'll really regret it though. Seriously. The ONLY concert that I'd consider and it has to be the one they announce.

Maybe someone's listening to me talk to myself...

PS Today is exactly one year since I saw Brad in Vancouver. The concert was great, I'd just like to be closer!

Heh. DH talks to himself all the time. Around me. In front of me. When I am in the next room. He's always whispering to himself about something or another. No, he isn't psychotic, but sometimes I wonder....

You know you want to.

And stop talking to yourself...at least out loud anyway ;)
