Memories.....




Today at work i was, sitting at my desk, ear buds in ignoring everyone around me, happily listening to random songs on my itunes library. REM - Stand came on, I immediately started tapping my foot and smiling. If I had been in my car I would have been singing, hell I might of been, although no one hit me with anything, so I probably wasn't. Anyway, that song made me happy, made me remember really happy times. College times, parties and concerts. I think there were some classes in there too...

This song made me remember a road trip to Birmingham to see REM in concert. John Desaro drove his small toyota or honda something, 3 in the back, 2 in the front. John, Jay C., Jay S., Anthony and myself. What a a great time we had! Listened to REM all the way over, on cassette no doubt! I bought a black REM GREEN T-shirt, I still have it, its full of holes and is soooo soft. That shirt will never find itself in the rag bag!

I have lost touch with everyone except Anthony, I wonder if he or the other still love REM and remembers that day?

Mine was a 38 special concert with Bon Jovi opening at the Oak Mountain Ampitheater. I went with friends, looked more adorable than I EVER have in my life (felt that way anyway) and had a ball. As it turns out my future husband was there too (no, we didn't meet or anything) making the road trip from Blount County. Fun memories! Thanks for the reminder - Jennifer
