    OMG! That was amazing. The best on yet (for me anyway!!) My throat is raw from singing but I managed to do a few things I wasn't able to do the first two times. 1. I caught two butterflies from the air with my net. I BARELY got my net through this time. The woman said I could take someone's eye out with the end. And I made a sad face and I told her about the butterflies and she got all and then let me through. Good thing, too because without the net I would have gone home with none except what I could scrape up off the ground! The first one I grabbed just as another guy jumped to grab it. He looked at me and smiled and gave me a "you can have it " gesture. It was sweet. 2. I touched one of the Yellow balloons. 3. I was only about 20 feet away from the guys as they ran to the 2nd C stage!! (which was behind a pole, oh well)... And I got a shirt (thanks Jimmy!) and I am so glad I didn't bring my camera in because I was waaay too preocupied with it in Indy. This time I just absorbed the experience. Unfortunately I think I got about half a joint's worth of 2nd hand smoke though (). It's amazing to me how they're able to make every concert feel special. They just amaze me. I'm just... AMAZED. [thanks Novah]


    Just got back to the hotel. The show. was. brilliant! Sooooooooooooo much to say, but I'm about to pass out, so I'll just leave you with one of the more interesting details of the night: I shook hands with Phil Harvey for about 2.5 seconds, which is a moderately long shake if you think about it. BTW: I managed to get to front row pit. Phil was sitting in front of me, just beyond the barricade for the majority of the show. During the b-stage set, I yelled, "Phil," stuck out my hand, and voila: he smiled and shook for a good while and then sat back down to take pictures. I'm actually in the Comfort Inn, and just returned from a well-working ice machine. [thanks MasoKnight]
