Where I inadvertently throw up gang signs


While in college, back in 2002 (I know, dating myself), I went to a conference in Boston. A couple girlfriends went to the same conference. We went and did a ton of fun things together. We experienced some yummy food, a couple bars and whale watching. 

I saw that Blue Man Group was there and had to check them out. Nobody went with me. So I went by myself and had a blast. And then hung out in some random alley and handed my camera to a stranger and asked them to take my picture with one of the Blue Men.

Mr. Serious went to see The Blue Man Group that same year in Las Vegas. So, we had both seen them, but never together.

This week, Mr. Serious and I were finally able to see a show together. It was awesome.

There were a lot of the same elements (the musical instruments with splashing colored paint) and new stuff (like GiPads and other “technological” additions). It was still awesome and funny and a great night out. A plus was there was no intermission so we were leaving the show by 10pm (which started around 8:30pm). Date night, a good show and home before 11? Sweet!

After the show, we noticed the band was posing for pictures (The Blue Men would be out later, but we were ready to go). So, I posed with the band. And, thought, rockstar, I’ll do the same hand-thingy as them. Except I don’t look cool and it’s too far to the right and I’m throwing an random gang sign.  So, yeah. There’s that (I’m sort of thankful my watermark is covering my ultra-lameness).

Check out their schedule to see if they are coming near you. The show is awesome, funny and entertaining

    You weren’t in college in 1998. Don’t make yourself older than you are!
