Give Me Five Monday

I haven't played this one in ages! This week's theme:
GIVE ME FIVE
MEMORABLE THINGS
YOU HAVE DONE

Here they are, listed in terms of recency.

1) Was in Grant Park for the Obama Rally on Election Night.
An inspiring historical event, experienced with thousands of positive, joyous people. It was a privilege to participate.

2) Went to a play-off game in Wrigley Field. My family has been loyally supporting the Cubs for generations, but only I can make that claim!

3) Saw Paul McCartney in concert. OK, so I was too young to see The Beatles. I got to see MY Beatle.

4) Made my niece's dream come true. She was 6 or 7 and dreamed she found a store that carried nothing but Anastasia-themed toys, books, and puzzles. I bought up everything Anastasia I could find on eBay and laid it out around my living room like a store. Oh, her face when she came in the front door! How often does one person get to literally make another's come to life?

5) Been kissed by Bruce Springsteen,
and yes, I got to kiss him back

  4. Yes, I want to know about the Bruce kissing. surely, if I had kissed one David Cook, it would be a permanent post at the top of my blog and noted as the high point of my life. (heh I lead a sad little life)

    Spill it, sistah!
