iDid It!

Actually, WE did it! After two failed attempts to purchase these little goodies earlier in the week, we left the house at 6:15 am yesterday to trek up to Pasadena (local stores were sold out) and stand in line. We were there by 7 am, and were just the seventh customers in line. The store didn't open until 9 am, so we had some time to kill. I found a great little bakery and got some hot beverages and croissants for breakfast for my honey and me while we waited on Colorado Boulevard. The line quickly grew in length, and we were happy that we got such an early start. By 9:45 am, we were out of there with our new toys.

I am especially excited because the iPhone can be used overseas. I will be able to reach Michael more often and more easily when he's traveling than ever before.

The night before, we went to the county fair and saw this legend:

He puts on quite a show. It's not my thing, but the crowd loved him. Ladies were flinging their panties on the stage! Outrageous! We got free tickets from a friend of Michael's who is part of the crew. It was fun.

The best part of the show, in my opinion was Sheila E.

She and her band put on a fantastic show! They did a lot of funky gospel and a couple of her 1980s hits. So much fun!

Congrats on the new toys!

(Sheila E was the pre-show performer at the first concert I ever saw, Prince's Purple Rain. Funny.)

You will LOVE your new toy. I can't live without mine. And I'm not bitter at all that I paid twice as much for mine as you did and yours is faster. Nope. Not bitter at all. :)

But seriously, I heart my IPhone.

Is that Tom Jones?? LOVE Sheila E!
Congrats on the new toy, as soon as they add a different provider to choose from we will change.

Michelle said...

Sheila E ROCKS!!! Love her!

I'd be curious to see the panties being flung at ol' TJ nowadays. You just know most of the true TJ fans are 50+ and have no business actually wearing some of those dainty little lace numbers flying onstage...

Let me know how you like your new toy. :-)

Those Iphones are really cool.
Is that Tom Jones? Wow, I can't believe the ladies are still throwing their panties, that is funny!

OH MY #6 said...

a very fine, new toy!


Kristin said...

My girlfriend and her husband were at Tom Jones as well and, like you, she loved Sheila E!

Jealous of your new iPhone, but I just can't bring myself to leave Verizon... they get the best service down here.

Shelley said...

Congrats on your new iToys. May you all be very happy together.

Wow! I have to mouse over the pic and read the link to see that THAT is Tom Jones! I had such a crush on him when I was a teen....
