********************Last week I posted about Amanda and I going to the Projekt Revolution concert at the Dodge Music Center in Hartford where she had the opportunity to meet Jimmy, Steve, and LynZ of Mindless Self Indulgence. I'm sure that anyone who has stopped by in the past week remembers this picture of Amanda with Jimmy, lead singer, and the plushie doll she made for him. I mean, come on, how could you forget that blue hair??
This week the saga continues just a bit ... I was sitting at work earlier, training the new guy, while watching the minutes on the clock tick by at what had to be the world's slowest rate when I got a call on my cell phone. "Home" it said so I knew it had to be Amanda - well, either that or a burglar had decided to give me a quick call to tell me that he had found absolutely nothing of value in my house and was leaving me $40 on the kitchen counter to buy some groceries for God's sake!
- "Yeah ..."
- "Oh my God I just got home and checked my Deviant Art account and I had two messages that Jimmy had the plushie I gave him on the stage with him!"
- "Uhm, I just went deaf in my left ear, hold on while I switch the phone over to the other ear."
By the time I got home from work, photo evidence of little JimJamZ, as Amanda calls him, appearing on stage was available in the form of the following pictures posted from Mindless Self Indulgence performances at two Projekt Revolution concerts (Colorado and either Chicago or Indiana, unsure which).
Needless to say Amanda is totally excited and I guess I can't say that I blame her at all. I guess you could say that Jimmy really liked JimJamZ!
Amanda is now hard at work creating plushies for the rest of the band members. Now I'll never get that artwork she promised me!! Guess I need to be some sort of rock star to get some attention around here ... time to break out Guitar Hero and start practicing again! Right?
