Friday Free-For-All (Eleven)

Welcome to Friday Free-For-All, where I talk about anything and everything on my mind.  This is usually just a great big brain dump, so brace yourselves!

I’m seeing the Goo Goo Dolls in concert tomorrow night.  Yes, I know, you’re all intensely jealous now.  The Champlain Valley Fair here in VT is kind of a big deal (sarcasm), and we usually get some awesome headliners.  I’ve seen Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, and Britney Spears.  So yeah.  I’m kind of a big deal (more sarcasm).  Anywho, I’m in full-on 90’s nostalgia mode.  Also, I can’t wait to have fried dough, maple creemees, and sausage.  Mmmm, fair food!


We’re having a birthday party for Ben tonight.  His actual birthday was on Monday, so we’re celebrating tonight.  Unfortunately, our apartment/kitchen are a total disaster and half empty due to moving, so I won’t be able to bake him a cake.  But I think beer and store-bought cake will work, right?  I’m very much looking forward to having friends over and taking a night to relax after being so stressed out all week.

Tigger consolation prize.  Well, I didn’t make the Tigger three-peat.  The Tigger award went to someone else (who REALLY deserved it) this month.  The good news is, I won this sweet little replacement during a trivia contest 😀

He may be even cuter than the original

      Maple creemees are the best things in the whole wide world. Soft serve ice cream (referred to in New England as a “creemee”) sweetened and flavored with pure maple syrup. They’re heavenly.

    Oh man I saw the Goo Goo Dolls in college and can I just say that they were great haha? It was one of those concerts where I thought for sure I’d only know a few songs but then halfway through I’m like “OH MY GOD I KNOW THIS ONE TOO” dork status. Maple creemees for the win 😉 My first concert was at that very beloved Champlain Valley Fair, I saw Vince Gill.

    Goo Goo Dolls, fried dough, and maple creemees?? Sounds like an amazing night! I can’t even remember the last concert I went to… I could have been Kaiser Chiefs or possibly Muse. Both were amazing. My first “real” concert was Evan and Jaron (the guys who sang “Crazy for This Girl” back in 2000 <3) and Howie Day opened for them. Ah, memories 🙂

    I am SO JEALOUS that you get to see the Goo Goo Dolls! I legitimately love them and have since, well, the 90s… I hope it’s amazing!!
    My first concert was The Beach Boys (hahah talk about a throwback), and the most recent concert I went to was Justin Timberlake. I can’t even put into words how amazing THAT was (not to mention I WON the tickets on the radio- crazy!). I have Zac Brown Band coming up in a few weeks, too, and I’m pretty excited to seem them, too.

      I’ve seen Zac Brown–those guys are amazing live. Very jam-bandish, and they did a lot of great covers, like Enter Sandman and Into the Mystic. You’re gonna have a great time!

      Also, I’m very jealous that you got to see the Beach Boys!
