Hiiiya, everyone! (I know this isn't really the most active community these days, but I figured I'd post something anyway and hope that some people still check it :P)

So, anyone been to any Worms concerts lately? I went to the Guelph one last night (second time seeing them! Felt nice to be able to cheer when they asked "has anyone seen us before?" rather than just sitting there awkwardly!) Anyway, as expected, the concert was fabulous. Played lots of the Christmas songs, which was fun. Some highlights: the running joke of Christmas being "just around the corner", their dollar store Christmas lights, the copious amounts of fog/snow effects, and... probably some more stuff that I'm forgetting (I've been up since 5 AM -- my brain isn't working!)

Also got a chance to meet them after the show (albeit briefly, but.. still!). They were quite nice! (despite my being kind of awkward/nervous). I mentioned that I was at the Kingston show in February, and they were all, "Oh, yeah, that was when it snowed outside, not inside!" (in reference to the snow machine thing), since the snow was ridiculous the night of the Kingston show.

So now I am eagerly awaiting Worm concert #3, whenever that may be. Ah, why must their concerts be so addicting? (it's okay, though -- it's a nice addiction!)

Oh noo! I wish I'd seen this sooner! I was thinking about the Guelph show, but it was a little too far away. I went to the one before in Oakville, where they had a Q+A session after the show!

I also went to the Toronto one on the 21st! Too bad we couldn't have said hi to each other :)

Don't worry about feeling awkward...I've seen them 17 times and I still stand there with my mouth hanging open, drooling, whenever I try to talk to them... :P

I was at the February Kingston show too! Man, we need to have a Wormfan meetup one of these days...

Aw, too bad you didn't go to the Guelph one! But that's good you saw them in Oakville anyway :)

Haha, well I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels that way about meeting them :P They are quite friendly though, which is always nice!

(also, I have a random question for you which is going to make me sound like a total creeper, buuut... were you by any chance on a train to Kingston about a week before Christmas? It's just I've seen some of your Worms reviews on this site and I was sitting next to someone who looked an awful lot like you, based on the pictures in those reviews... but I didn't say anything becase a) the whole feeling-like-a-creeper thing b) if it wasn't you, the conversation would probably end up super awkward and c) if it was you, you kind of looked like you didn't want to be disturbed :P

... I swear I'm not a stalker, don't worry :P

Haha no way! Was it the 17th, around noon-ish? If so, then yes :D I was going back to Kingston for a grand total of 24 hours - I'd gone home to see the Worms on the 15th, went back to Kingston on the 17 to write an exam, left on the 18th, and saw them at Hugh's Room on the 21st. You should have said hi! I always love meeting Wormfans :D

Anyone going to the April 13th show in Hamilton? I wasn't going to, but decided at the last moment I had to. I have an exam at 9am that day, so I'm elaving Kingston at 1, arriving in Toronto at 3:40, then taking the 5:15 GO train to Hamilton straight to the venue. Then the next day I get to get up at 6, get the 9:25 VIA and get into Kingston to write an exam at 2pm.

Obessessed? Me? Nahhh, why do you ask? XD

Yeah, I think that sounds about right! That's a strange but cool coincidence :D Well, if I ever somehow end up on a train with you again, I'll be sure to say hi this time :P That's a lot of travelling, though! All I was doing was going home, because the Guelph concert fit perfectly with my schedule -- had my last exam that day, saw them in the evening, went home the next day!

Wow, that's devotion! I'd be tempted to go to the Hamilton one, as I live in Guelph and that's not TOO far away, but I have an exam the day before, the day of, AND another one at 8:30 the following day... so that's probably not going to work :P
