There's no excuse to be nasty like that. Even if you truly feel that way...which I find it hard to believe that you could truly consider THAT to be the single happiest moment of your life...sometimes it's just better to keep your mouth shut. Seriously.

I love his music much so much, I admire the heck out of his talent. To be able to actually have a one-on-one conversation like we did...I mean, how many people get the chance? It still blows me away.
Mine's a lot like yours. I have had a lot of very happy, very meaningful times in my life, but for sheer giddy happiness, nothing (so far anyway) beats this for me.

I was playing around online one night (still had dial up then) and my cell phone rang. I picked it up and was a little irritated because it was from someone I didn't know, so I initially thought it was a telemarketer. But after a brief exchange I realised it wasn't a telemarketer, it was Steve Kilbey! (in case you are the one person on this site who doesn't know, he is the singer for my favourite band) I was absolutely floored. While we had developed a fairly comfortable chat room and email correspondence, I never expected him to call me! He was amazingly chatty and although I was nervous -- it was Steve Fucking Kilbey after all...and early on I couldn't quite figure out why he called -- he was quite easy to talk with. It got better though, because he told me he had some people contact him about his artwork because of an exhibit of his art I'd set up in a small Ohio town. This was great, except he didn't know much about selling artwork, so he asked me if I wanted to become his art rep and do that for him. I was sooooo thrilled!

I'm still thrilled whenever an email from him drops in my inbox, when we talk on the phone, or when I can tell him a painting just sold too. Always makes me smile.

one would think that because im a mom daisy being born would be the most happiest day of my life. but it was where the doc and nurses were scaring the hell out of me with the possibilities of me having seizures and shit which did end up being the case. it was a hard week. not happy. it was more relief that daisy was born healthy and thats what mattered to me most.

so with that said, i'd say the happiest day of my life would be the u2 concert at the pond in anaheim for the elevation tour on 4/24/2001. i was in the middle of a divorce, and for the first time in ages, i felt free. i was right in front of adam. and it felt like home.

The first kiss with the girl who would go on to be my first love.

They say you never get over the first one... So true.

Happy moments...

- To swim in the sea with my friends when the beach was (almost) empty, then rolling on the sand and go back to the sea;

- When I found out I was admited in Vet Med school;

- Riding a horse for the first time (and last, it always makes me so happy);

- When I went to the U2 concert and the setlist was even better then I could ever imagined;

- My first Muse concert;

- First kiss;

- Being in Rome (especially in the Coliseum and the Palatino);

- Long night walks close to the river at summer, laughing at everything;

- Alex Kapranos making eye contact with me even if it was just a few seconds during a concert;

These are some of the moments I think about when I feel down, sometimes it's enough to put a smile on my face...

Probably yet to come. But seeing U2 and the "zoo encore" for the first time is definitely up there!
