So worth it.
I bought the tickets back in May, I think, the day they went on sale. Not just the day, the hour, the minute, as soon as I possibly could because I was going to be at that concert. Now, I'm not the type of Gaga fan who can sing all of her songs, including those that haven't been radio hits, like my friend Jannine, but I like her. A lot. The hair, the costumes, the upbeat dance music. Lady Gaga is just a big bundle of fun.
Over dinner and drinks one night, I revealed to Jannine that I was going to the concert with Mr. Hull. She just about flipped out! Oh my goodness, if that girl could have screamed any louder, she would've (and she did, but we'll get to that later).
Fast forward a few months. It is the day before the concert and I have a dumb mommy moment (I promise I'm not really a blonde.) John is suddenly unable to attend the concert, because he is dealing with contractors, insurance adjusters, headaches, and more. Less than 24 hours before Lady Gaga is set to take the stage, I call up Jannine to see if she might want to accompany me. Wouldn't you know, she doesn't answer the phone. The girl is fortunate that I left a message. The next day, we hit the road as soon as she gets off from work, drive two hours to UVA, and wait in a line a gazillion people long to get into the venue.

The concert itself was superb! The costumes, choreography, sets, and all were fabulous. At one point, Gaga wore a UVA t-shirt that a fan made just for her. Even though I am neither a Wahoo or a Hokie, even I could appreciate the awesomeness of that, though she did claim that wearing cotton was "against her religion."
I don't care how many of my mommy friends think I'm a weirdo, the next time Lady Gaga performs around here, I plan to go back. This time, though, Janine and I'll be decked out in our finest. I'm thinking glitter, spandex, a tutu, and some sort of fun hair accessories should do the trick. You never know, I might just find a fun gay friend to go along with us, too.
