From the CV stream: The venue is beautiful - very ornate. A very large orchestra - in tuxedos. The theater is packed to the rafters (holds 2,100). Diane Bubel, Jaymes, Kristy, and Nick are all there (party at Casa Clay, I bet.) No sighting of Faye or other family members yet - Greensboro may be closer to Raleigh.

The orchestra's first number is Winter Wonderland. Of all the Christmas music, they do a song that the featured artist is going to be singing later? Odd.

8:36 and the intermission has started.

According to the certer, the conductor was very funny. He said they had a great time with Clay this afternoon, and that "Clay was hot stuff."

To enthusiastic applause - "Don't peak too early."

"Maybe we can have Charlotte SymphonyMates."

The certer can get a small glimpse of Clay backstage - dark suit, she thinks. They've brought out the stool.

We're thinking the certer said Clay danced out onto the stage, but not positive.

So, Clay danced with his mom in Norfolk. Think he'll dance with one of his women tonight? Heads explode...

They are being busted -

The problem with the CV people is htat they are enthusiastic fans and really laugh into the phone - it hurts my ears. They are good people, but louder than Clay.

Is the CH back up yet?

Binocular Banter. How much for seats $50.00. She's looking up my nose! No looking at my crotch with your binoculars.

That's funny talking to the men in the audience - they might be afraid someone from the ofice miight see them there.

The CH cellstream keeps buffering. When it comes in, it sounds great -- but it's so intermittent, I'm not sure if I can take it.

He's doing HYAMLC at the moment.

He seems to be doing a LOT of vocal changeups this evening. Is it because he's feeling loose in his home state? (Have at that muski...) Or is he having problems vocally? Inquiring minds want to know....

SR...this should be fun.

Talking now about having vertigo...he hit his head, "maybe it knocked some sense into me."

Word of the Day banter at the moment...

Special guest for the word of the day -- Jaymes Foster. Hee.

I couldn't hear the word, though...

Did Jaymes just bring out the word of the day?

Ok - answered. I missed ldyjocelyn's post....

I don't think Clay could have been surprised at the 2nd worst album of the year thing - considering the things EW said about ATDW.

AWWWW...

Was there something in the news that would make this joke understandable to me? Did it get selected somewhere as the second worst album?

Grrrr if it did....

So it was EW huh? I'm not surprised....I suppose I could be happy it wasn't the FIRST. *g*

EW named it the 2nd worst album of the year. #1 was K-Fed's!

I always seem to be one step behind ldyjocelyn! Not quick enough to keep up with her quick mind! B)
