    i found a shinedown concert thats less than 5 hours from st. louis(where i'm from). it'll take 4 hours and 46 minutes to get to NASHVILLE, TN. i've never bought a VIP package yet so i'd REALLY REALLY REALLY want to get that.. $125 is A LOT of money! i'm 14. idk what my mom would think of this. should i ask? do you think she'd say yes? sorry. you dont know my mom but.. i'm afraid to ask. any ideas? should i drop this idea? and wait?

wow i hope you get to go good luck.

I MIGHT GET TO GO TO THE NASHVILLE CONCERT!!! and meet SHINEDOWN!! and not have to pay lotsa money.

the quote things are annoying.. no offense.

I am officially vacating this thread, sorry.

wow! i see u got this all planned out! tht sounds like a good plan...i personally like the idea of mailing the ticket to me so i dont have to try and find you at the venue but my mom still doesn't know cause she says they will be coming to ny soon. she also wants u to sell the ticket on ebay but i told her no and i want u to hang on to it!! so when u get the tickets i would like it if u could e-mail pics of them to me and give me more info on the show and meet and greet. the timing is perfect cause its on a friday night so i dont have to worry about school! thts the only thing tht has worked out so far! lol another question....r we gonna be able to get close? and r u gonna be with me through the show cause i would be kinda scared by myself! :) i am glad i met someone as nice as u tht would do this for me! and i am happy its no joke! cause when u told me u had an extra ticket i thought u were kidding! so thank you thank you thank you!!!!!! u r making my dreams come true!!(if i go!! lol) :lol: :lol: ~perri :P[/quote]
hey perri, i can either mail you the ticket or wait for you there at the venue whichever is better for you. if i waited for you at the venue i would be waiting outside the venue for you and it would be way before the show started so that we could get in there for the meet and greet and then enjoy the show afterwards. and another thing if you do come yes of course i'd enjoy the show with you. it would be awesome to enjoy the show with a family member from the SD Nation. I mean assuming your parents say yes and all that we can get to talking more details like renting rooms at the same hotel and all that so we could head out to the venue together or something like that. i've been checking my mail every day for the tickets but still nothing. i'm going to email artist arena to see when i should expect them. i'm starting to worry a little about the tickets since the show is october 9th and my receipt says ill get them a week before the show. it's getting close so i'll email them tonight and let you know when i get a response. oh and about me selling the ticket i refuse to do so. i don't want to make any profit off of it. it was meant for someone who would enjoy the show. and if I sell it on ebay i can't guarantee that the most deserving person would get it rather it would be the one who can put up the most cash. tell your parents as soon as I get more details i'll pass them on to you. If they say yes and you go to Houston I'll watch over you while were there at the show. After the show I plan on staying around back to try and see the guys one last time. I'm going to go wait for them by their bus. If you want you could join me for this or if your parents wish to pick you up after the show that's fine too. I'd be happy to wait with you while they pick you up. In the end I have an extra ticket I don't want to sell it to anyone rather I want to give it to someone deserving. If your parents say yes and they allow you to come to Houston I have already promised you the ticket is yours. And even right now the ticket is reserved for you. Believe me this would be a sick joke and I'm not that type of person to do that. What's your email I'll send you the receipt I got through email that shows I paid with my credit card for the tickets it has the order number and it shows on there that they are VIP tix. Give me your email and I'll forward it to you. Note the date october 9th 2009 in houston texas. I'm sorry I can't provide you with anything more than that but as of right now it's all i have. let me know what you think.

yes i'm sure. i don't want any cash for it. just knowing someone will enjoy the show is thanks enough. the only thing i'll ask for is the vip laminate lol i'd like to keep that the ticket was originally my wife's so i'd like to let her have that as a memory since she can't go to the show. but the ticket you can keep as well as the poster they'll give us to get signed. but i'll take no money for it. whoever gets the ticket in the end the same goes as well. i don't want money just to keep the vip laminate.[/quote]hi tony! i just showed my mom all the info about the show u have been telling me. she said she still doesn't know but she wants u to e-mail me a pic of the ticket when u get them to make sure it is real! and my mom goes "well u just have to beg ur dad to let u fly alone!" so idk yet but i'm still trying! i've never wanted anything so bad in my life!! my parents think im crazy for wanting to do this! but i just really want to go! and its no problem, u can keep the VIP laminate i understand tht ur wife wants it. u have to help me beg my parents! they dont care about the show its just the they r worried about me! but i know i can take care of myself! im 14 but very mature! i'm just trying to tell them tht its very safe and tht ur not gonna bail on me! they thinks this is all fake but im trying to prove to them its not! wish me luck! i'm slowly getting there! :lol: :) ~perri[/quote]
hey perri i'll definately do that for you. believe me i'm anxiously awaiting those tickets too lol. that's no problem as soon as i get them i'll take pics of everything they send me in the mail. even the actual packaging they come in. this is no joke tell your parents believe that would be a sick thing to do to get someone excited about something like this and then just bail on them. i assure you i won't bail. i'll take the pics and post them on here as well as email them to you as well. rest assured no joke i'll be there in houston on october 9th. i only hope they say yes to you going so you can get that ticket. anything else that your parents need for me to provide or say just let me know i'll help you out with whatever i can. best of luck.[/quote]thank u so much tony! i will tell my mom right now after i write this! shes still on the fence cause its so far away and risky but i'm gonna wait till u get the tickets so i can show my mom and prove to her they are not fake! everyones telling me its very dangerous and i know tht. but if i do go my mom said she or my dad would probably fly down with me and then i would go 2 the concert and they would stay in a hotel.so thts what we are thinking if i do go but money is really tight right now so idk! but do u know where they are playing and where it is in houston? or is all the info in the ticket? and how would i get in the concert without a ticket? just wondering! thanks again tony! it really means alot to me tht u really want me to go and tht u wont give up this ticket even for money! thanks!! ur the best! ~perri :lol:[/quote]
hey perri that's awesome that one of your parents would be flying down with you. that would make me feel safer about you coming down to houston as well. yes i do know where they are playing. they are playing the verizon wireless theater in downtown houston. the way that i have it worked out in my head is that the concert is on october 9th which is a friday. i'm leaving to houston on thursday night around 11pm and arriving in houston around 5am. I plan on hanging out there at the station till it's daylight since I don't feel so safe walking the streets of houston at 5am. lol. So once it gets to be daylight outside I'm going to head out walking to find the venue which is about a mile away from the bus station. Then once I find that I'll head out to find a hotel nearby so I can rent a room to shower up and charge the ipod lol and my phone. Then depending on whatever time the meet and greet is i'm going to head over to the venue. I'll give you all the details about the meet and greet time as soon as I get the tickets so that you can meet me there at the venue at that time. I'll give you your ticket and VIP meet and greet pass at that time. But if your family is still skeptical after I send you a pic of it. I can mail it to you if you like that way you already have it before the show and your parents can see that this is no joke. I want to help you out as much as I can. I don't mean anything else by giving you the ticket I'm happily married I just know that you wanted to see the band so i'm giving you my extra ticket. I'll give you more details as I get them. but if your parents agree then you and whoever will accompany you can meet me outside the venue in houston about an hour before the meet and greet time and I'll give you your ticket and all that. After the meet and greet we should be able to enter the concert room and await the start of the show. Let me know if I can be of any more help. Don't worry about thanking me. Knowing that the ticket is going to someone who will appreciate is thanks enough. hope it all works out.[/quote]wow! i see u got this all planned out! tht sounds like a good plan...i personally like the idea of mailing the ticket to me so i dont have to try and find you at the venue but my mom still doesn't know cause she says they will be coming to ny soon. she also wants u to sell the ticket on ebay but i told her no and i want u to hang on to it!! so when u get the tickets i would like it if u could e-mail pics of them to me and give me more info on the show and meet and greet. the timing is perfect cause its on a friday night so i dont have to worry about school! thts the only thing tht has worked out so far! lol another question....r we gonna be able to get close? and r u gonna be with me through the show cause i would be kinda scared by myself! :) i am glad i met someone as nice as u tht would do this for me! and i am happy its no joke! cause when u told me u had an extra ticket i thought u were kidding! so thank you thank you thank you!!!!!! u r making my dreams come true!!(if i go!! lol) :lol: :lol: ~perri :P

hey perri that's awesome that one of your parents would be flying down with you. that would make me feel safer about you coming down to houston as well. yes i do know where they are playing. they are playing the verizon wireless theater in downtown houston. the way that i have it worked out in my head is that the concert is on october 9th which is a friday. i'm leaving to houston on thursday night around 11pm and arriving in houston around 5am. I plan on hanging out there at the station till it's daylight since I don't feel so safe walking the streets of houston at 5am. lol. So once it gets to be daylight outside I'm going to head out walking to find the venue which is about a mile away from the bus station. Then once I find that I'll head out to find a hotel nearby so I can rent a room to shower up and charge the ipod lol and my phone. Then depending on whatever time the meet and greet is i'm going to head over to the venue. I'll give you all the details about the meet and greet time as soon as I get the tickets so that you can meet me there at the venue at that time. I'll give you your ticket and VIP meet and greet pass at that time. But if your family is still skeptical after I send you a pic of it. I can mail it to you if you like that way you already have it before the show and your parents can see that this is no joke. I want to help you out as much as I can. I don't mean anything else by giving you the ticket I'm happily married I just know that you wanted to see the band so i'm giving you my extra ticket. I'll give you more details as I get them. but if your parents agree then you and whoever will accompany you can meet me outside the venue in houston about an hour before the meet and greet time and I'll give you your ticket and all that. After the meet and greet we should be able to enter the concert room and await the start of the show. Let me know if I can be of any more help. Don't worry about thanking me. Knowing that the ticket is going to someone who will appreciate is thanks enough. hope it all works out.

thanks but it's my last resort.

Oh that's a cool and creative idea :) I like that one :D

lol. sorry just don't want to charge. but i get what your trying to tell me. maybe if perri can't come in the end then i'll have to post it up on craigslist and see who gives me the best reason why they deserve the ticket. but that's the last resort for now the ticket is perri's until i hear otherwise.

Yes I get it :) That's a great thing you are doing anyway....just go for the last option if you have 2

yeah it would. but i don't want to make profit off this. i bought it with the intent for my wife to enjoy the show with me and since she can't make it, i want someone else to enjoy it and no charge for them.

Yeah that's true, but atleast you could make a little extra cash, that always helps :)

i could. but like i said i want a diehard. can't guarantee that on ebay.

Yeah I hear what you are saying...well if the worst comes to the worst couldn't you just like, sell it on Ebay?? I would

lol. seriously? if perri can't come i don't know who to give the ticket to. none of my buddies here where i live can make it to the show. so i'd have to either drag somebody with me or find someone there in houston which i would rather not do. i want a diehard SD fan to go to the show. someone who will appreciate it and enjoy it as much as me.

Aw I hope so too, if not i will come over just especially for this! :lol: Aw i think it's a great thing to do :D

it would be my pleasure. the ticket would go to waste if i didn't take someone else. and it's already paid for why should i try to make a profit on it. i just feel bad perri has got to spend the money to get to houston. i hope the parents say it's cool. i understand their concern but i just want to enjoy a show and rock out to the greatest band ever with a fellow SD Nation family member.

Awwwwwwwwww tony you are too kind!!! :) :) What a great thing to do for a fellow Shiney!!

houston was my first then Pharr, then Hidalgo all here in Texas. Wow i missed counted them my bad. Been to three SD shows. This October will be my fourth. I really am a junkie lol. I even forget how many fixes of SD shows i've had lol.[/quote]wow! i want 2 hear all about it! r u gonna meet them? and is ur wife going?[/quote]
yeah i have meet and greet for the show. no my wife won't be going she won't be able to make the trip cuz of her school classes. i have an extra ticket if your interested. i started a thread about it.[/quote]omg! i would love to go!! :lol:[/quote]
well do you live in or near texas. the show is october 9th in Houston texas. let me know if your really interested in attending. I have that extra ticket and it comes with "meet and greet" my friend. I know how much you want to see them. This would be a great time for you to see them. Let me know. I'll be holding the ticket for you.[/quote]well tony heres the thing...i really want 2 go but i live all the way in NY and i got 2 ask my parents cause idk how i would get there! but keep holding tht ticket! thank u so much![/quote]
ok. i'll hold the ticket for ya. so you can see if your parents will let ya come. well you could fly but i'm not sure if you would want to do that. it's ok if you can't make it. just thought i would give it to someobody that deserves it. who better than another die hard fan.[/quote]well i am a die hard fan! but im still in the process of BEGGING my parents but they wont let me fly alone! now if i go are the seats close? and would i meet u some place? thanks, tony! ur the best![/quote]
well i know your a die hard. i was referencing that. i understand that you need your parents permission. i'm holding the ticket for ya. the seats are general admission to the venue more than likely it'll be standing room only. I have preordered the tickets already through artist arena. So i'm just waiting for them to come in the mail. According to my receipt I should receive them about a week before the show. As soon as I have more details I will pass them on to you so you can inform yourself and your parents. If you do come then I can meet you there at the venue at least an hour or two before the meet and greet will start so we can ensure that we won't miss out on the meet and greet and so I can give you your ticket and meet and greet pass. Rest assured this is no joke. I have the extra ticket and I'll definately give it to you no questions asked. If you can get to Houston I'll handle the rest I'll make sure you get the ticket and that we don't miss out on the meet and greet. I'll take care of all the details. If your parents have any questions or anything like that let me know I'd be glad to answer them. I'm just giving someone else a chance to share in this great experience to watch this great band. best of luck hope you get permission.[/quote]thanks so much for the info tony! i will wait until u get ur tickets in the mail to know more info. my parents r just worried about me meeting someone that i met online they dont think its safe but i have complete trust in u! i still dont know yet but i am trying my best to beg my parents! now, my dad wants to know if i have 2 pay for the ticket? thanks tony! -Perri :D

that's awesome.

at the Disturbed concert i was expecting much but they were excellent and i didn't stop moving the whole night!!

yeah it was a slow start during the other bands. and we were arguing with one of the security guys as to where our seats were and where we could actually have access since I had VIP tickets. but halestorm really put on a show. we were standing and rocking for them lol.

Sitting down is boring unless you have a condition which means you gotta...which is a shame cos there is nothing better than rocking out at an amazing concert!!

very nicely put lorilee. i remember before my show started in august. during the other bands my wife and I were sitting and then once the lights went out for SHINEDOWN'S crew to set up for the show I stood up and told my wife you gotta stand Brent will find you if your sitting. She stood up and forgot all about her chair throughout the show lol. She was going crazy jumping up and down when Brent said to and throwing rock on to Zach it was amazing never seen her have so much fun. As soon as Brent took center stage and got in his podium and he uttered those words I'd been waiting to hear so long "GET YOUR FISTS IN THE AIRRRRRRR!!!!" IT WAS ON. I got chills all through my body. And let you out the loudest YEAH i've ever yelled lol. I love music it is so much cheaper than therapy as Brent says and the healing is immediate.

It's physically impossible to do anything but...The excitement prohibits sitting down. It's horns up, balls out, go for it!! :lol:

Seat or no seat, I always stand!!!! At the last show, I was standing on my chair and THANK GOD the hottie next to me was so understanding with my sick ass off key singing and falling a couple times...wait...not falling...SWOOING!!!!!

yeahh. i sing as loud as i can with Brent since nobody can hear me.

that's the best way to enjoy an SD show. standing up on rockin right along with them.

i wasnt sitting. i was standing.. haha.

lol. i know you would be on the left side. i usually can't decide so i just go for front and center lol.

well if not this show then another. i'm sorry you can't make it. perhaps on the next tour they'll come closer to you and you can see them then.

hmm. idk. my mom has already decided. if it was my choice i would go...OF COURSE.. haha.

oh ok. my bad i kinda misread it. well don't give up though. i had my fair share of shows i couldn't attend before i was able to finally get to meet them.

st. louis, MO. i wanted to go to the one in nashville but i cant.. thats how this topic started..

oh ok. it's just since you posted that you wouldn't see them till november i thought you would be seeing them soon. where are you from that they aren't going any where near you.

me? SHINEDOWN wont be near me on all the tour dates that i see.

yup trully amazing. where you from and where will you be seeing SD in november?

woww. that REALLY IS a great way to end the night.

yeah it was great. after the show he was throwing picks to the crowd i was hoping to catch one but none came in my direction. instead he did something that just put the icing on the cake for me that night. after he finished throwing all the picks he reached over grabbed his setlist jumped off stage passed all the people reaching out to him and brought me the setlist. it was awesome. great way to end the night.

wow! that is soooo amazing that Eric would do that. amazing. amazing. amazing. amazing.

no it's not private i can tell ya. i told him how much i appreciated everything he gave for the band and how much shinedown meant to me in my life and how much i loved it. i also referenced several things that i knew he would know what it meant. for example the fact that he is a "little human digital recorder" and also things like "skittle in a wine glass taste better" little things that i've seen in vids of SD that i knew he would like and remember. i did my best to personalize each message to each of the members. i know eric read his too cuz he thanked me while on stage in between songs he even bowed to me which really impressed my wife. it was the greatest feeling to know that i had made a tiny difference in their lives.

yeahh. i hope i get my chance. okay okay I KNOW i'll get my chance. i am not going to worry. i think.. i'm pretty god at worrying.

what did you say to zach? unless thats private..? THAT REALLY IS AWESOME THAT HE ALREADY READ IT AND LIKED IT.. LIKE YOU SAID.

really really really awesome.

don't worry you'll get your chance.

it wasn't very long at all. maybe about two three minutes while your getting your stuff signed. but i really don't know it seemed so fast lol. but we caught up with zach before the show. my wife recognized him he was walking around before the first band went on. we asked him to pose for pics with us and he did being the great guy he is. i just posted them today their in the 'post yer mugs" thread. one of me with zach and another with my wife and zach. when i took the pic with him he thanked me for the note he had already read it. and he laughed at some of the things i wrote to him. made me feel special that he had already read it and liked it. thats when he told me he could tell just how much devotion i had towards the band cuz of the stuff i knew about him. that i had written on the note.

oh i reallyyyy want to do that! how much did they give you to talk and everything? and i think i do remember reading that now.. i'm glad i read it again. thats awesome that you gave them personal notes. its a really great idea too!! hehe.. i bet it was an amazing feeling. and i cant wait until i have that feeling.. to be speaking and being with my heroes too. :)

sure. i have posted it so you might have already heard it before. well you go for meet and greet they put you in line first to get stuff signed. and then for pics. when i got my poster signed by them i gave them each a white bandana with personal messages for each one of them. they were very surprised i did that. i did it for two reasons. one to let them know how much they meant to me and two cuz i knew i would get star struck and forget everything i wanted to say. i had just gotten my second SD tattoo done so that gave me something to talk about with them. they were very honored to see my tatts which made me feel awesome. it was very nerve wrecking i was finally meeting my heroes. you idolize these guys for so long and then when your face to face with them they are just the nicest people ever. it was such an amazing feeling. we just had small banter and i introduced my wife to them. i joked that she is the one that has to put up with my addiction which all of them laughed at. when i took pics with them i squeezed in with barry and brent just cuz i wanted to be surrounded by shinedown lol. it was really fun i highly recommend it. the best natural high ever.

that is sooo cool! can you tell me about your last time meeting them? like.. what they said to you? i think i may have already read this thoughh somewhere sooo hmmm.

i've been to three so far this one in houston will be my fourth. i have meet and greet passes so i'm so pumped. it'll be my second time meeting them.

oh AWESOME! i'm jealousss. how many SHINEDOWN concerts have you been to? including the one your going to..

yup october 9th in houston texas.

your going to an upcoming SHINEDOWN concert also? not saying i am but other peoples have been or are..

i think when your waiting for an SD show it can get even more difficult. i distract myself with school cuz i know i need to be caught up with everything since i'll be leaving on a thursday night and returning on a saturday night.

i guess so. haha. your right. its not THAT for away. but still... ima very impatient person. i try really hard to not to be..

well on the bright side it's not too far away.

oh goodness. i probably wont be able to see SHINEDOWN until november. :cry: ..random but very true.

the nikon is alright. i was far away from SHINEDOWN when i used to it and pics turned out bad. it was hard to get good ones. it coulda been because i was so far away.. i think if your close you'll get good shots.. not sure though. what kind is yours and what does yours look like??

i just noticed that you said this.. haha. my "texting buddy" was a guy. he just stopped talking to me once.. we'd text everyday for hours. we still kinda talk sometimes but its not the same. and i did like him.. wait i still do. now we're going to school together its just really complicated and weird.. and i wish it wasnt. a lot of my statuses on FB were about him and he doesnt even know it.

ohhh hahah.. i dont know much about driving.

No...i was learning a while ago, but started my lessons again, it's hard here, we don't have automatics and stuff like in the US we have to use actual gears :lol: very hard stuff...hehe

haha.. my time was okay.. not really that good, sadly.

you dont know how to drive?

Awww hope you have a good time :)

well i'm a learner driver, only had 4 lessons so he has lots of reason to think im a bad driver!! hehe

your welcomee. does ross think your a bad driver or something?

i am going to this place that i only family goes to. there's a house there and its like in the middle of nowhere. we ride four wheelers.. its really fun. lotsa family that i hardly ever get to see is there.. and yeahh. :D

Just great thanks :) Been out driving so making Ross nervous as I was in his car :) What are you doing today?

and mad mama, thank you what you said.! for some reason it made my day yesterday! :) i dont really know how to explain why..

it doesnt look like a big venue.. but i really dont know. they are headlining. i am pretty sure on that one. cause they are with adelitas way and sick puppies. that would be awesome if you could talk to jake about this.. but i dont think i have a chance now. i just now told my mom about the stuff that you were saying and she said that i cant miss school. i tried saying i could only miss an hour or something but.. she made it clear that i cant go. i get out of school about 2:40.. it takes 4 hours and 40 something minutes to get to nashville and the concert starts at 7. i looked all that stuff up before i told my mom on monday...

hmmmm.. :(

You know, let's check out where this show is gonna be at. If it's a headliner show, and it sounds like it is, you may have easy access to the band without needing to buy the $$ tickets. Like, the show on 9/22 will be at the Showbox Sodo - only holds about 2,000, and the busses park right beside the building. No worries about NOT seeing the guys on their way to and from...

Plus, if we sweeten up ol' Jake a bit, I bet we can get our little Mind is a Weapon chickadee up close and personal...! Whaddya y'all say?

yeahhh. thanks. i'll try. :)

Keep the faith :)

oooh i love to babysit! the kids i usually babysit are now starting to watch themselves.. and my uncle keeps saying that i'll get to babsit my cousins one day. hasnt happened yet.

[quote="Themindisaweapon"]i told her right when she got home yesterday around 7. it went okay.. i think she considered it until i told her the price. the price is the problem. :(

she said to wait until they get closer.. i guess i can wait.. but still... it was perfect. its on a friday. and i've been wanting to see sick puppies and adelitas way.. hmmm..

and awesome pics shinedownjunkie45! especially the ones of zach. :D[/quote]Do some babysitting!

i still have hope. :)

oh that's rough. but still keep at it. you never know she might just go for it.

i told her right when she got home yesterday around 7. it went okay.. i think she considered it until i told her the price. the price is the problem. :(

she said to wait until they get closer.. i guess i can wait.. but still... it was perfect. its on a friday. and i've been wanting to see sick puppies and adelitas way.. hmmm..

and awesome pics shinedownjunkie45! especially the ones of zach. :D

i'd say go for it and ask her. it's definately worth a shot explain to her how much it means to you and doing the chores that everyone else has recommended don't hurt either. I recently bought the VIP package for a concert to meet Shinedown let me just tell you it's defianately worth it. The guys will not dissapoint you. They are so down to earth and so nice. You'll defianately have a great time with them if you go. Best of luck. I'm hooked on the VIP package I just recently purchased another VIP package for another show. I bought two though both times so that my wife could join me on the experience. She had heard of Shinedown because of me but meeting them and being at the show made her become a fan of the band now she loves them. check out my pics with them www.myspace.com/shinedownjunkie45

I hope your mum lets me go, when I was that age i defo don't think my mum would have let me go that far, but everyone is different. Suggest going with a friend, maybe she would be more comfortable with that? :D

[quote="mollie"]Glad I responded~it's sometimes easier to "hear" things when you are not face to face or so involved~hope that makes sense.

Maybe try equating your love of shinedown to something she loves or is passionate about. A good dialouge of why you want to go goes along way.[/quote]

i think the first thing you said makes sense.

and i'm sure knows how much i love SHINEDOWN. i've made sure she's knows that many times. also i dont really know if she has a passion for something.. hmmm.

i want to post my review on here of last time i saw SHINEDOWN.. i talk about my whole day in it.. i'll post it in a minute i hope you read it. :)

THANKS!! :D

got any other ideas of what i could do for my mom?

Yeah-Yeah, take it from a Mom! Do LOTS of chores and be on your Best behavior!! It goes a long way , you gotta deserve the rewards...Good Luck!! :lol:

good idea. i'll try that too. i've already bothered her about getting my own lap top as an early christmas gift.. i think i'll give that up and go for something cheaper and A LOT more worth it: MEETING SHINEDOWN and seeing them for my 3rd time. :D

so far for my mom i have:
folded towels
checked on my puppies and put them outside twice
plan on giving my puppies a bath after school tomorrow

...

I PLAN ON DOING MORE.

hehehe...

Maybe an early Christmas gift??

yeahh, your right. hmmm. i guess i'll ask. i hope its a yess! i'd MUCH rather want a vip package instead of a lap top.

for some reason i thought no one would reply to this.. you did! :D

You can always ask and understand that the answer may be no because she is your mom and cares. I have a 13 yr old and I am not sure how I would react. I would love to say I would say heck yeah, lets go but it would take some solid planning and thinking.
