I Went To My 10th Weird Al Concert On Wednesday

I will attempt to be brief with this but I've been fairly verbose every time I've told this story so far.

Wednesday night I attended the Weird Al concert in Columbus, OH. I drove two days to get there. I was BEYOND excited. Front row seat, meet n greet afterward-- hell yeah. I made my own Jedi costume specifically for the concert. It was made on knitting looms and then I crocheted the ends. It turned out fabulous. The 501st garrison was playing around with me when I was waiting in line at the meet n greet, even. 

The concert, as always, was AMAZING. Al bonked his head on the microphone stand spinning around at the end of the polka. He laughed it off but that still looked kinda painful. He sang the second line of WBUL to me. The lady next to me got the last bit of WBUL sung to her so I got a REALLY awesome camera angle for that. The whole concert was so much fun and the audience had such great energy it was just fantastic.

And then the meet n greet happened and

HE REMEMBERED ME.

He remembered my name.

Like, my meet n greet pass has my last name on it and the date from that show, so I doubt he got my name from THAT

I wish

I wish so bad

that I could've seen the shocked look on my face when he said "Hey! Emmaline! It's so good to see you again!"

Because I KNOW it had to be hilarious. I wasn't expecting that. I wasn't allowing myself to expect that or ANYTHING tbh because getting your hopes up is the easiest way to end up having a bad time. I just wanted to hopefully not mushmouth when I asked for the picture the way I wanted it and

Suffice it to say, mission accomplished.

He signed my lightsaber.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT WAS AWESOME.

It's only a part of the Czar package, which is what I spring for every time because the 30-45 seconds with him is BEYOND worth it. 

I know in previous years he used to do a lot more fan interaction at his tour bus after the show, but that's changed with the Czar vip stuff.

I can't believe I didn't know this was a thing. I've always wanted to meet him, even if only for 30 seconds. I drew a picture of him and Harvey the Hamster when I was little and sent it to him - he sent me an autographed photo back. I never forgot that - his music was the only thing that made me smile during my parent's divorce.

I'm still kicking myself for not walking over and saying hi at the zoo. He was starting to walk away and IDK how he would have reacted.

I am entirely not an advocate for randomly approaching celebrities in the wild, so to speak, but  from what I've heard from other people, Al is very sweet when approached at random by fans. I'm sure he would've taken a picture with you at least. I hope you get to meet him at some point! He really is the sweetest.

      Ok, I am not going to say I haven't read the left leaning conspiracy theories about this shooting, even if I'm trying to hold off until we have more verified information.

      But I don't get where this "Biden sent the shooter" idiocy is coming from because seriously here? He has an actual job, with stuff to do etc. Now if you wanted me to believe Steve Bannon sent the shooter I would be more receptive, mostly because it's the kind of out there theory I can get behind.

      I don’t mind that they want to see people they love, but why the prevarication

      Doesn't fit in with the "we need a safe and stable home across the country " grifting theme. I don't think people would have donated as much if they knew there was a planned holiday in the middle, and I am wondering how many donors are now side-eyeing the hell out of them. Because that wasn't a small omission there, it was strongly implied that both flights were sequential and necessary to get to where they are planning to live.

      I swear if it turns out they've moved two suburbs away in Seattle... I will probably laugh. I doubt this is the case - why fly the cats? - but part of me is expecting to find out they've moved to Salem, Oregon, or Sacramento.

      It is possible for spouses and children of defendants in federal CSA/child porn cases to request (and receive) mental health services through the Federal Defender Victim/Witness programs. But the key detail is that it has to be requested and typically that happens in situations where the spouse is trying to separate/divorce from the offender.

      “The discrimination was awful, and TSA held us up for over an hour and made us late for our first flight.”

      My husband flies with his mobility assistance gear all the time for work, including into and out of Seattle. He says their claim sounds like absolute rubbish. Every interaction he has had with the Seattle airport has been professional, swift,  and courteous. 
       

      Over the years he has used a  cane, walker, manual wheelchair and power chair. At every turn the Seattle airport has been kind and competent, 

      Well we all know how entitled Artemis is, no surprise they figured they could run late and the TSA line would part for them like the Red Sea in the Ten Commandments because they have mobility devices and cats. The "awful discrimination" was probably other people who told them to wait in line and the TSA staff probably reiterated that using mobility devices does not give them the right to expect special treatment.

      Counseling would come from a different court than the criminal court Josh was in.  It would only be ordered due to a CPS investigation.
