So I've been kicking myself for not getting tickets to one of Lady Gaga's two concerts she's performing in my hometown tonight and tomorrow night. When my friend told me the other day she was going to see her in Vancouver a pang of jealousy swept through my body. How could I have not purchased tickets??? Dummy. At the time they went on sale, $100-$200 tickets were not in my budget. I tried winning them on the radio the past few weeks but no luck. I even put it out in the Universe, saying in my head, "Universe. Pretty, pretty Universe. Please. Somehow let me get a hold of some tickets to see The Fame Monster. I think I've been a really good person lately and deserve it. Amen." But when nothing happened and as the concert was nearing I came to terms with the fact that I'd be missing the biggest concert of the year, if not the decade. I guess I'd have to replay the 'Alejandro' video over and over on Youtube and try to re-create the choreography in the 'Love Game' video in super-high heels and fishnets in my living room to get one tenth of my Gaga fix. To help cheer myself up I bought this on the weekend:
If I couldn't see her live on stage at least I could read about and connect with her through the pages of one of my favorite magazines, right? WELL, I am pleased to tell you that I must have sat on a friggin' horse shoe yesterday because when I arrived at work early at 7:15 a.m. I called into my favorite radio station to win tickets and Oh my Lord I got through! They were looking for caller #25, #26 and #27 and this bee-yatch (yes, moi) just so happened to get through as caller #26! They had the three of us guess how many seconds one of the DJ's could keep rotten eggs, soya sauce, mustard and horse radish in his mouth for without gagging. The contest was called "Gagging for Gaga." I guessed 45 seconds and he gagged at 45.2! I won two tickets on the floor to tonight's concert! I ran down the hallway in my office yelping and told anyone who would listen I had won TWO TICKETS TO LADY GAGA!!! They were all happy for me except for a few older coworkers who responded with, "Lady Who???" I'm taking my cousin who is as big a fan as I am and we cannot wait to see the woman who runs the Haus of Gaga live in concert! THANK YOU Universe! Also, I found out I won a beautiful bracelet from Closet Fashionista's giveaway on her blog. Yesterday must have been my lucky day : )
Do you have tickets to Gaga's concert? Have you been already? What should I expect? And more importantly what should I wear???
