Happy Back to work day! Well at least it is for me.. I had yesterday off (yay!) and spent the whole day maxin' and relaxin'. Until about 4 pm when my sister, Olivia, and I took off to a "music festival" where my friend Shantel was performing. She is a singer (a very good one I might add.. think Alicia Keys..) and had a gig with her band Projek Theory down in West Warwick, RI.
My sister and I went not really knowing what to expect but when we got there.. I knew it instantly. We were smack dab in the middle of an 80's hood. Proof is in the hair. Before we get down to business I would like to say I am an expert at taking pictures on the sly, but some of these shots were blurry. And I also need photoshop to black bar out their faces... Although.. I'm not so sure these people have the internet. " Oh, I can't. I'm expecting a call from 1983..."
1. What a horrible pain to inflict on such a young boy... Ignore the totally HOT HOT guys surrounding him... concentrate on the poor little boy. And his mullet.
2. Up next.. the picture is a little fuzzy but I'm hoping you can understand why I chased this woman down and hid behind a fat guy to get this picture.
3. This poor woman.. was a fake red-head. I'm so sorry the picture came out fuzzy!!! But check out her enviable skirt!
4. And last but not least we have the Ludacris song in PERSON!!!!! Far from little, make ya mammary glands jiggle... This older woman decided to grace us with an off the shoulder top. With textured tights and an Indian head-dress. What she was lacking and badly needed was a bra. Yikes!
OK OK I'm done making fun of people.. I'm sorry! Whoever said blogs should be politically correct all the time are just boring!
Let's get back to the good stuff. What did we do besides look for people to make fun of? Here we are before we ordered our food at a little dive called Diggy's in W.W.
Here we are after waiting for 15 minutes for our food.
Here is our grub. It's my ice cream.. I totally didn't share!
We didn't know the event was actually a hometown fair, so we came unprepared- i.e: no money really for the Peanut to go on rides. We managed to scrape together a few bucks and we went down the slide.
This is a crowd shot of our crew.. we roll deep!
Shantel is wearing the purple shirt with the purple hat- she was getting a little steamed because they were supposed to start the bands at 7 pm and behind us was some auction going on to raise money for the Portuguese lodge. They were literally auctioning off TOMATOES AND LOAVES OF PORTGUESE SWEET ROLLS. O-M-G.
Here we are still waiting.
Andrea.. the girl on my right (left?) is really tall and I am really short!
I think it sucked that the BEST picture I have of the night.. Shantel and Christina are BLOCKED by the fence. DANG FENCE!
But she was amazing. AMAZING!!! She knew how to work the crowd, they loved her, we loved her, it was really cool! Tomorrow I will have the video I took up and ready to go...
But alas, it's time for me to get some real work done.. so have a great day everyone!!!
(look I can write songs too.. )
