Playing My Position

What's Jack up to? Jack's doing just fine. Getting into bits of trouble here and there but that's just Jack so what's more to say? Happy Monday!

I made it through the Gaga weekend. Though by DD and her friends did lots of fretting over what they were going to wear I decided to play my position and go as, well, me The 40 Year Old Mother in jeans, an olive draped sweater, and my comfy Uggs. Yes, I said it Uggs. Ga-Ga indeed. But my feet didn't hurt. Lordy I am getting old.

But, I've had my days of dress-up and fun way back in the day. Saturday night I was just there to fade in the background and keep and eye on things, make sure the girls weren't snatched up or anything.

Of course I enjoyed the show while I was trying to fade. I did my share of head bobbing and danced a bit when I could sneaked it in without a dirty look sent my way. I particularly liked the opening act, a glam rock band called Semi Precious Weapons that my DD told me I was too old to like as much as I did. Sigh. Whatever. (insert eye roll here)

Here was my tweet on the subject. I was having fun but am afraid the girls were corrupted:

Lead singer just stripped and changed on stage I'm afraid girls are changed forever same as me with Prince the first time. from web

Lady Gaga put in a great show. I have to say I liked her before but really like her even more now. She has so much talent and energy and knows how to use it to her advantage. Am I a little monster? Maybe.

All in all a good time, though I could have done without the drinks being thrown down from me from overhead. I'm wayyyy to old for that crap.

Here is a little Semi Precious Weapons for you if you can deal. ***Warning explicit lyrics.*** Not for the faint of heart. Have fun.

You rock! I think it's great that you went... and enjoyed it. Saturday night the whole family was here and we put music on and danced with the little ones. My son said-"Mom, you aren't suppose to like this kind of music."- I can appreciate all types of music- just some I like to appreciate a little less often. Enjoy a quiet day.

I like Lady Gaga more than my kid does. I think I would have been quite offended by the ole eye roll. Good for you for keeping it together!

I love being up on my music - it makes me feel a bit more connected to my son, the wannabe producer.
I like his taste in alternative music. I wonder if he has that band in his repertoire of musical artillery.
There will always be intrigue with a bit of the bad boy ( and girl) bands for me. (I still love Blondie.)
"Eye roll" would be a good novel.

You're a good mom!

I've heard she puts on a really good stage show.
I mean, the costumes alone are worth it!

Ina in Alaska said...

You are such a cool mom! I would have loved to see that show and I enjoyed your Tweets on Saturday!! xoxoxo PS I wear Uggs all the time!

I saw Lady Gaga on a Barbara Walters special and I liked her. Your experience sounds like fun! reminds me of my very own Prince experience. Also, not for the faint of heart. ;)

Love this post! Sounds like you had a great way of "fading back" but being with it and understanding at the same time. Perfect! And ahhhhh ... first concert. ... brings back so many memories! Was your first concert Prince? Mine was Journey. {big 80s grin here}

Kwana said...

Yes, Mizwrite my first concert was Prince at 13. I was so in Lurve!

Maureen McGowan said...

Very cool that you went to the concert. I saw Lady Gaga on some show and she was just playing piano and singing and I almost fell off my chair. Up to that point I'd had no idea she was actually talented. She is.

And that opening act? No way are you too old. They are very late 70's to me. What retro fun. ;-) (Your DD will love to hear that.)

That's Not My Age said...

Hi Kwana, sorry it's taken me so long to visit your blog - I'll be following you from now on. Gaga sounds fun, please please tell me what she was wearing!

Kwana said...

Thanks for stopping by That's Not My Age. The costumes were great fun. I will do try and do a post on them later this week. One was very Flash Gordon, gold and wild, and I loved it.

Ellen, eye rolls are the least of my problems.

I would love to go to a Lady Gaga show. There's no way you could be bored and it sounds like you had a great time!
