Last night (August 23rd, 2010), I saw the Scissor Sisters in concert - they were promoting their new CD, "Night Work". They were AMAZING!! I can barely put into words the glee, and pure joy, that I felt while experiencing their show. The singer, Jake, is so talented, and just gets hotter and hotter everytime I see him. And he LOVES to strip more and more clothing off during the show. Ana, the other singer, is great as well. Their voices blend so well together, and she is very much at home on the stage - she loves to talk between songs, and builds a great rapport with the crowd. Baby Daddy and Del Marquis round out the group - Baby Daddy writes most of the music for the group, and Del Marquis, is a fantastic guitar player - and sexy to boot! 2 hours later, I was even more in love with their music (if that's possible), and my voice was all but gone - but it was well worth it! The only thing better would be if I could be at every single one of their shows!

My job is becoming more and more cool by the day! Sure, there are times when I get a little crazed, but what job doesn't make you that way? Tomorrow, I head on my first "international" trip. We're going to Toronto for something called "Retail Appreciation Days" - which is where we bring all of the owners of Pandora stores and multi-brand shops together for a huge meeting/learning opportunity. It sounds like an interesting time. I've never been to Canada - ever! So, I'm pretty excited about it. I've also heard that the men in Toronto are absolutely HOT as hell, so I'm excited to see if that's true. I can't stop thinking about that song from the South Park movie, "Blame Canada". My friends keep singing it to me. I don't blame you Canada. Not yet.....

So, I'm all anxiety-ridden and scattered today. You would be also if you were woken up at 3 am with a phone call saying your Mom was in the hospital with chest pains and low blood pressure. As soon as I got to work, I immediately informed them that there was no way in hell I was going to fly to Los Angeles for a store opening. Thankfully they were VERY understanding and said there was no way they would have let me leave. Family is #1. It just re-affirms for me what great people I work with. Tomorrow morning she heads to York hospital, and they will do more tests and also do a catheterization to assess the damage (if any) to her heart. She might need another, or several stents put in her arteries. But she also may just be fine. I am still on pins and needles - and praying that all is going to be fine. I did love the look on her face when I walked into the room - she lit up. It made me happy. The best time was the 15 minutes I got to spend with her - just Mom and I - talking. I told her she needed to get well because I wasn't ready to let her go. She kept harping about my job and me missing my trip, and I told her she was the most important thing in the world to me. There really was no question that I'd be by her side. I love you Mom. Please, get well soon. Life is uncertain. Live each day like it's your last.
