And I haven't even posted the last little bits of '08-ness!
Well, here goes:
December 16th, 2008: Dragonforce concert. Absolutely fantastic, despite some misunderstandings between the tour peoples and the venue (or something) regarding the meet-and-greet with the band, which didn't really happen. (We'd received instructions via e-mail to form a separate line at the will-call office, where we had to pick up our tickets anyway. So gavic
and I did so, along with five or six others. Somehow, the person who was supposed to meet us was told to just go through the main line and find fanclub people that way, or something, and so those of us who followed the e-mailed instructions--which also said not to ask any box office or security personnel about the meet-and-greet, as they would not have any info--didn't get the meet-and-greet. We did, however, at least get to see the two opening acts (the names of which I'm not recalling, though gavic
probably knows), and, in contrast to the Dragonforce show I sorta attended in the Springs, the opening acts were amazing, too. Though I wasn't too happy about having to be patted down to enter the show area--I understand why they did, but I would've appreciated some warning, as I don't cope well with unexpected events, and being patted down by some random guy isn't something I find all that enjoyable even when I know it's a possibility (like at airports).
December 20th, 2008: Bell gave us one heck of a Christmas present. A Blackberry Curve for each of his (gavic
's is silver and mine's red), waiving of all activation fees, two 2-gig mem cards, one 4-gig mem card, a case for each phone, and extra stuff added on to both of our plans--all for free! So our only fees for leaving Rogers are going to come from Rogers, whenever they get around to sending us the bill.( Christmas Goodies )
Oh, and notes of possible interest to anyone who's interested in such things:
I'm starting to make my own jewellery! Have completed two pendants so far (one has been Named, and the other is having a Name thought up) and have both a bracelet and a necklace half-done; the bracelet also has a Name already. Once I have some pictures and have figured out somewhere to put them, I'll be posting said pictures up for people to see, along with prices, should anyone desire to purchase anything.
