If someone had ever told me I'd get to see one of my all-time favourite bands live, minus a TV, without having to travel off island, I would've called 'em naive. Very naive. Well, hot damn. Some dreams do some true Yeah, the Barenaked Ladies may be Canadians, but they've never shown any indication of hitting Prince Edward Island for a show in the past. Until now ^^ I'll be seeing them next Sunday (rain or shine - I'll still have a blast), and they're probably one of my top 2 favourite bands of all time. Possibly the top. The Black Mages - not really a "true" band, but meh - rivals it. A friend of mine once pointed out that it's wrong to call a band like the Barenaked Ladies my "favourite". They're not really a 'deep' band, or 'cool' (hip with teh kiddies!). They're really quite "fun for the whole family"-ish, but that's fine by me. Still love 'em. Fun lyrics, good music, easy on the ears, fun to sing to. They say they sing a slightly different version of "If I Had a Million $$$" at each of their live shows. Can't wait This isn't the first time that one of my long running "dreams" have come true, though. Semi-realistic dreams, that is (as much as I expect real live Pokemon to just pop up someday soon... XP). Another time was actually getting to hug one of those folks in teh big Pikachu costumes ^^ What about you guys? What sort of doubtful stuff have you hoped for in the past that actually came true? Try to be more specific than "I hoped to see a great movie, and I did"
