This week is my wife’s birthday. She loves the music of Journey. She also loves most things having to do with singing & dancing. This includes, but is not limited to the TV show Glee, the video game Sing Star, and countless cover bands. She lost her !@#$ when Glee performed Journey.

A coworker of mine owns a part of a local club that just so happens to have Journey cover band Frontiers playing. And he had a bunch of free tickets to donate. Sometimes cubicles work out!

So, this weekend, I’ll be at a Journey cover band concert with 6 screaming beautiful women from Jen’s flag football league. Wine coolers and pina coladas watch the !@#$ out! Tonight the ladies (many of whom have strong allegiance Ohio State football) are having girls night with Sing Star to practice for said cover band…. and I get left alone for poker night outdoors on the new back deck. Life’s tough that way some times.

In the spirit of the weekend; Don’t Stop Believin’.

God, I really wanted to hate this video, but, ok, I’ll say it. It’s cheesy 80s music. It’s college. It’s people not giving a @#!$ and just enjoying themselves. It’s pretty freakin’ awesome.

That was just about the most cheerful thing ever. And man, I totally want to be at the Ohio State Union–that place is gorgeous! I’m totally bummed I’m missing Frontiers…I love me some Journey. You guys will have a wonderful time tomorrow night!

I loved this video. It makes me think of my daughter, who is a UF fan, but they lots of activities kind of like this:~)

I also like Journey. One of my favorite songs was “Open Arms”…today when I listen to it, it sounds a bit sappy, but I did love it and would turn the radio very loud when came on in the car and sing along with the song:~)

I also send a belated happy birthday wish to your wife. I hope the “Journey” concert was as much fun as you made sound:~)

Hi Sara!

I have to be honest, I don’t like Journey. But I do love it when my wife (and her friends) are happy. And they loved the concert so I, of course, had a great time!

The opening act was a Cold Play coverband and that was much more my speed. One of the girls asked about my favorite bands and I didn’t really have a reply. ‘It’s based more on my moods,’ I explained. However, I confessed to a prediliction towards bands that had heroine addictions (Depeche Mode, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nine Inch Nails) – the lyrics always seem that much more powerful to me. Weird, I know.

I’ll pass along the birthday wishes so thank you! (She’s a former Gator, too.)
