i was thisclose to ashleeeeeee!
BIG FRICKIN' DEAL.
I was on my way to class tonight, left at 6pm because I wanted to get coffee, chill for a bit, etc. It's only a 10 minute drive, 2 exits if I take the freeway...and I did. The exit was all backed up, for no apparent reason (at the time), since there wasn't some huge conference at the convention center and the hockey season went kaput. I parked in my usual spot (3rd street), hooked up the iPod (Pleasure Club
) and started my walk across campus to 11th street. Between 3rd and 11th is the SJSU Event Center, and there were all these small people running around, swearing and being all stupid, some were wearing pink tutus, it was all very confusing.
I didn't think they were there for a basketball game...and they weren't.
I pushed my way through the crowd, got to class, still didn't know who was playing. The prof came to class, made a comment about how there was no parking, and said "I guess it's because of Ashlee." "Ashlee?" I thought to myself, "surely not Ashlee Simpson, there would have been more talk about it."
But there wasn't. Dear girl didn't even sell out the SJSU Event Center...the place where I saw a great show many years ago: Hootie & the Blowfish opening for Toad the Wet Sprocket.
So, how close was I to Ashlee Simpson? Probably a thousand feet, and there were the walls of the Event Center between us. WAY TOO CLOSE for me.
