I met Guy Garvey tonight! I love him! I'll post the story tomorrow when I'm awake. It's not nearly exciting as Sula, Zonelistener, and Ali Rose's story, though!

maybe the paralysis that tends to occur in both of us in any proximity to Guy Garvey will wear off by then...

Hey! You did okay! You actually managed to form words. I was completely silent. I don't think I said anything...maybe "thank you" or "nice meeting you too." I don't remember. All I remember is the hair and the snugglyness....

yeah, inner monologue consisted of: "i love your hair...your voice is so nice...i want to hug you..." repeat.
I think you said stuff...I really don't remember either. I think you might have said something about how great the show was, which I couldn't get out at the time...

I DID?!?!?! wow....I remember thinking it, but not saying it... I hope I didn't say anything else I thought without realizing it....

Thanks! Your prayer must have worked because we got to meet Guy! Yay!

Here's the story:

So we got to the venue extremely early because there were already people waiting in line. The only people there were in front of us, so we asked them to hold our spots while we went to get something for lunch. By this time, the busses had already arrived, and Doves and Elbow were in the theater. So we're walking down the sidewalk and literally run into Elbow coming out of the theater. We ended up eating lunch in the same restaurant as them, but we sat on the other side and actually managed (surprisingly) not to look over at their table and to talk normally without hypervenalating or giggling (major accomplishment for me). So we ate, threw our trash away (the trash cans were right next to their table, which was a little unnerving), and went back to the line. Guy came out and talked to some people for a bit and signed autographs, but we didn't want to bother him before the show and I was SO terrified that I wouldn't have been able to summon the courage anyway.

We were at the very front for the show (between Pete and Guy for Elbow and in front of Jimi for Doves), but I took I think one picture (of Doves when Jimi turned around. I'm such a wimp. ) The highlights of the show: Elbow -- Guy looking at me and singing "you're a girl in this vicinity" (one of my yahoo email address), Guy smoking and singing and staring directly at Jennifer and me for extended periods of time during Scattered Black and Whites, and Guy in general . Doves -- JIMI (Oh my. I love him.), "Pounding," "Cedar Room," "Catch the Sun," "Spaceface," and Andy coming up and singing while Jimi played drums.

After the show, someone gave us Doves posters (yay!) and we were buying Doves t-shirts and lighters (haha) when we saw Guy Garvey moving in our direction. I was shaking like a leaf and scared out of my mind, but Jennifer somehow managed to ask him for a picture. Then he put his arms around us and pulled us in (my purse was between us, but he moved until it was behind us so we were all cuddly. Guy Garvey hip action.... ). None of us realized that Jennifer's camera flashes twice, and we all moved a little after the first flash, so the picture is probably really bad, but Guy Garvey is in it!! After the picture, Guy had his hand on the small of my back ( ) and....said....some....stuff....sorry, I was completely incapable of thinking, so I had no idea what he said. I guess the standard "Thanks for coming, did you have a good time?, etc." (It's a good thing he had his hand on my back, otherwise I probably would've fallen over dead). Then he left and we went outside.

We talked to some people for a bit, and then Guy came back and stood right next to me (it would have been shoulder-to-shoulder if I weren't so short, so shoulder-to-arm, I guess....) and talked to the people we were talking to (and I guess to us too, but I wasn't able to say anything and the other people were very loud and chatty). I just stood there looking him because I was completely unable to say a word. Then he shook our hands and said it was nice meeting us and Jennifer, in an unprecidented and very admirable moment of courage, told him we'd be at the show on Wednesday (which got a huge grin and look of surprise and again I guess he said something....). He then turned to me and shook my hand. Maybe I said something, maybe I didn't.....I know he did, but I'm not sure what....and that was it. We didn't stick around to meet Doves because we're both too shy to wait around outside the bus or anything.

It was kind of embarrassing because I was so obviously nervous and horribly silent (except for maybe saying things I don't remember). Guy was SO nice, though, and so snuggly, and his hair....

So it was a good night.

As soon as we get them developed ....probably Thursday because I hope to actually work up the courage take pictures on Wednesday night and then take them in on Thursday for one hour developing. I can't wait to see the Elbow/Doves pictures and I still have pics from the night of drunken Ed Harcourt fun that are on the same roll.
