i love meg.
i've always loved meg white. ever since i saw her and jack play the greek theatre in berkeley. my sister and i actually ran into jack in our hotel elevator and then later walked right past meg who was walking her dog on the sidewalk and smoking a cigarette. had i known right then and there that i would come to love meg white, i would've had a deep, engrossing conversation with her that would've led to an intense and magnetic friendship. alas, that didn't happen. but i got to see the white stripes perform and it was probably the best concert i've ever been to. after the concert i went to the merch stand where my sister got a bag and i got a sticker. i saw a set of buttons, one of which said "i love meg" on it and i contemplated buying it. but i didn't, and to this day, i regret it. i cannot find that button anywhere.
anyway, last night i went to see a band called "be your own pet" play at the troubadour. great band, great energy, fantastic lead singer. they're all around 18 years old, the lead singer is a girl who screams and dances and shakes her head/hair back and forth so hard that you worry for her health...the guitar player is a kid named jonas who i knew when he was like 2 years old. his brother was in my carpool and jonas would sometimes be in the backseat when his mom would pick us up from school. it's pretty crazy to see jonas rockin' out on stage now, diving into the crowd and signing autographs for teenage girls with cameras (below is a picture of the band, jonas is the kid on the far right).
ANYWAY, after the show, guess who was hanging upstairs in the VIP room? MEG freakin' WHITE. i slyly walked past her pretending to look for a friend. i think we made eye contact, but our combined shyness made for an uneventful moment. but i think we both knew in our heart of hearts that we would meet again, some day, somewhere.
