"It's Always Better When We're Together" (We as in Jack Johnson and I)

(Kylene, Cam, me, and Kelsey at the Gorge)
Friday afternoon I decided to live up the last few months of my teenage years, be a bit irresponsible, and go to a Jack Johnson concert. I missed a night worth of tips and wages, paid $55 for the ticket and $20 for a shirt but it was all worth it.

Here are a few things I learned about Jack Johnson:
1) Sometimes even Jack Johnson forgets the words to his songs. And when he does he giggles.
2) Jack Johnson says, "Awww shucks!"

3) Jack Johnson sounds just as good live as he does when I turn my ipod up really loud.
* Just as a little plus I included a picture of what we watched for our pre-concert entertainment. This is our neighbors going to town on their joint. We stared. Unashamedly. Then we stared some more and tried not to inhale.

I wondered whose new perfume you were wearing when you came home! Bill Clinton would have been so proud of you for not inhaling :)

I'm glad you had such a fun time. What a way to end your summer that required so much responsibility earlier on.

P.S. I love your blog.

I am so glad that you weren't disappointed in your final decision. Hmmm - I wonder if I would have picked up on your new perfume???

I'm very jealous I didn't get to go. Jealous because you got to hear Jack Johnson, but MOSTLY jealous because of all the people-watching you got to do. Ande, I love you blogs because they are written exactly how you think. I'm glad you got this going before you go back to school because I'll get to hear you in my head regularly.
Love,
Cal Pal

That is so precious! No inhaling, but taking a picture instead! Funny.

I would have loved to hear Jack Johnson forget his lyrics and then giggle.

Priceless.

Sorry that was me! I hit enter on accident! Yikes!

I'm quite convinced that The Gorge is close to the top of the list when talking about the best places to people watch. Who knew?! Every concert I've been to (or worked at) I just couldn't stop staring, er watching, people drunk or high or whatever they were. It was like a whole new world for my naive self. Couldn't take my eyes of them, ha ha.

I'm glad Jack was good live. So fun to throw caution to the wind and have fun before getting serious again. You'll never regret it.

(I love your blog too)

Ande - Your blog is fabulous. I love to people watch at the Gorge. We had many of the same type of neighbors at a Willy Nelson concert last year. Oh my, my naive little brain finally figured out what the whole "contact high" thing was about :) Good job to not inhale - very presidential . . .

Ande,
I LOVE your blog!! and the only place that beats people watching at the Gorge, is in the waiting room at the ER afterwards. It is amazing what people don't wear and what they say when they are trying to give fake info to the intake clerks!! I hope you keeep blogging at school. Love, Viki Anderson

I LOVE the Gorge and Jack Johnson. I am completely bummed that I am missing Dave Matthews Band this weekend, first time I've missed it for a few years. I am glad you had a good time.

I loved this post! I went to the Dave Mathews Band Concert a few years ago and I was amazed at how many lesbians would stop in front of us and do the same crazy, earthy dance! It was my favorite memory and like you with the pot smokers I just stared because it was too funny!
