It's Official!

Well, Inky Hot Mess has finished up the Creative Team blog posts. I was last, of course, since I'm the Creative Director! Pretty cool seeing all this info about me....and then there's the pic of me with know Dave, right? As in David Cook....the dude who won American Idol Season 7. The guy who started that guitar guy thing winning on Idol.

Me & Dave

Well, when I lived in South Carolina a few years ago, I traveled to 2 of his concerts. I met him at both. The first time I met him was in a Subway at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina...yeah as in Subway the sandwich shop. I still remember what he ordered. I could NOT have eaten it!

The second time I met him was at a VIP event in Athens, Georgia. The pic is from that event. It was a great concert. I got to to soundcheck and he took requests. The man played my favorite song and I was sitting right in front of him in the front row! EKK! Athens is pretty cool. So if you ever get the chance to go, go! Visit. Take pics.

Oh if you want to see the write up about me. Go to the Inky Hot Mess Blog! Like right now. What are you still doing here? RUNNNNNN!!!!

Me, Dave, and The Anthemic (his band)
