Lady Luck Hit Me In The Head With A Stick & Now I'm Going To See Ash

Hey everyone! Yes, I know, I've been gone a looonnnggg time. I would still be gone for a while longer, but something really cool happened to me on Friday, after I had been having the worst week at work of my whole life. And, no, that isn't an exaggeration - worst week ever! Anyway, I had heard that the Irish band, Ash were in SA and the lead singer Tim Wheeler was being interviewed on the radio on Friday afternoon. I decided to call in, because I have been a huge fan since 1996 and I just wanted to tell him how much his music has meant to me. So, I finally get on the radio to chat with him and I'm telling him how much I love their music & how hardly anyone in this country knows their music, which is a travesty. So he's telling me to spread the word & so on. Then Tim asks me if I'm coming to the show & I say unfortunately not, because I live in Durban & the show is in Johannesburg (6 hour car drive, 1 hour plane flight away). Next thing, DJ Fresh pipes up & says "Well, since this girl is such a big fan of yours, if I fly her up here, will you give her a ticket to the show?", so Tim says OF COURSE! Next thing I know, I'm being put on hold so that they can get my details and now, after all that, they are flying myself & a friend up for the show on Wednesday night. Free plane tickets, free accommodation & free show tickets! HOLY SHIT! I just can't get my head around it! NOTHING like this has EVER happened to me before. And there wasn't even a competition going on. My mind is officially blown! So anyway, here are some of my favorite Ash songs for your enjoyment. Check out Orpheus first, it's amazing! Then Shining Light - Annie Lennox did a cover of it, you know. Oh, and by the way, expect some news about the blog soon. xoxo
