On the Lam

Yes, that's right, I'm on the run from the law! Amazing how calmly I can type this after being run to ground by the awesomely fierce security team at the 
concert last night. Yes, I dare not breathe his name in case they're still looking for me! You see.....I escaped!  I'm a fugitive! 

All I brought into the concert last night was a small case in which I carry my little camera and my cell phone. As I had no purse I wasn't searched and I somehow missed the instructions that said we weren't allowed to take photos. Well, Michael told me but I don't believe everything he tells me!

So the concert begins and everyone stands up. I wait, lean back in my seat and start snapping photos - yes, I'm a rebel - I don't like anyone telling me I can't do something. How security could see me squinched down in my seat while everyone else stood up around me I'll never know. Suddenly Michael says, "put it away, put it away!!" I'm like totally nonchalant, never thinking for a second that the "jig was up"!  

But yes, I'm hauled off to the security desk to "register" my camera. We just get out into the hallway when two other security guards run out from another concert gate and ask my two guards to come and help them. One of the guards instructs me to go over and wait at the desk.

Yeah, right.

I veer into the ladies' washroom and a few minutes later peer out. The coast is clear. In my head I'm thinking they're going to be WAY too busy to come and hassle me again even if they could remember where I'm sitting so with a fair bit of confidence I return to my seat. 

Not being 100% stupid rebellious I keep my camera under wraps until the encore. Then I don't care anymore WHO sees me and I snap away again. Most of the photos were pretty grainy what with so much glitter and smoke and low lighting but any picture of "he who shall not be named" is a great picture!

In conclusion, if anyone asks, you don't know me!


  1. You are so hilarious. You are a rebel and so brazen, I am a Fraidy Cat when it comes to authority figures.

    So glad you got to see the one who shall not be named. He still looks so young!

  2. That is hilarious!! The last time I did something like that was back in 1990 at a New Kids on the Block concert in Hamilton!

  3. Welcome Bette! Ahhh the NKOTB - that brings back memories! Hamilton you say? That's not too far from London!

    Niki - yes he does look so young and he's 53!!

  4. I mean really how could you? I mean sneak into the ladies room, you are brave, of course I would have been wetting my pants.

  5. You're one wild chick! Did you-know-who pull you up on stage and make you dance with him?
    Love those photos. I'm glad that you didn't listen to "The Man".

  6. You are wonderful!!!! I want to be a rebel too. I will probably be in the cell with you.

  7. Sounds like you had a great time at the concert!

    Wanted to let you know I nominated you for an award. Please check out the blog post here on it:

  8. I was thinking Prince was getting up there in age, but hey 53 seems pretty darn young to me!

    You definitely are a rebel!
