Homies That Rock

First of all, I got this picture, below, via email from Lisa this morning, and really? It's just priceless -- and I so wish I could have been part of the RnR in AZ crew this year -- but next year, if you guys are still planning on reconvening for the event, you can count me in! Until then, I think I might have to save these homies as my screensaver :) But, speaking of sportin' the classic Jess rock 'n roll pose, tonight I'm gonna be holding the devil horns high as I rock out to the Foo Fighters! Seriously, I'm psyched to see Dave Grohl and his fellow bandmates return to South Florida to rock the hiz-ouse. We saw them about 2 years ago when they swooped through on tour with Weezer (another of my favs) and the Foo were friggin awesome -- truly, they are a band that really rocks to see in concert. And tonight is gonna be even more swawesome (that's "sweet" + "awesome" -- I would like everyone to start using it regularly since it annoys the crap outta my husband, who swore to me last night that he is only going to use it to mock me) because we got really swawesome (see how versatile it is?) seats. Honestly. If I wanted to, I'm gonna be able to spit (throw my bra) on Dave Grohl -- we're that close.
And, what makes this event even more swawesome is that Jimmy Eat World is opening for them and I *heart* Jimmy Eat World (even though none of my concert companions really care for them). So, this afternoon after class, I'll need to run my 3 miler as speedy as possible, so I can get ready for pre-concert dinner and drinks. Hmmmm...what should dominate the run's playlist? Perhaps a little Foo and a little Jimmy Eat World? I think so!

OHHH the Jess pose is swawesome!!

You are the last person I would expect to make up a word. I'm loving it. I'm always erasing my double !! thinking, oh I bet she's sick of my inappropriate ways.

Have a great time.

Holy crap I'm so jealous. If my bf didn't exist I'm sure I'd be married to Dave Grohl by now. Seriously, he couldn't resist me!

So jealous, have a great time!

You were part of the crew... Just a remote part :-) I know. It's not the same...

Have fun at your concert! Hopefully the meet up will be closer to the south next year. I wanna go too!!

I feel I've been completely validated.

dude, total swawesomeness. I'm making a trip up the Minneapolis toward the end of February to see to see the Foo with one of my college roommates. WAY EXCITED. I want a total recap of the evening so I can know what to expect.

I'm sure said recap will be filled with swawesomeness.

(god, your husband's going to hate us.)

Taryn said...

nwgdc said...

i am truly amazed and inspired that you are running BEFORE a concert of that magnitude. I, personally, would cozy up next to some good friends and good beer and "mentally prepare" for the upcoming experience. What a dedicated runner!!!

Margo said...

What a great pic! And kudos for getting your run in before the concert!! That truly is dedication.
