I'm at work, trying to kill the last half hour before I can leave and meet people for dinner and then the Adam Lambert gig at Heaven. By this point I'm practically vibrating with excitement. Really, I'm no good to anyone, work-wise!

I went out Sat night with a bunch of the girls from the Lambrits board. (I am really wondering at what point one becomes a "Glambert" - I really hope I'm still on the other side of the line!) We had a few drinks, grabbed wristbands at GAY bar, and then tried to get into Heaven. No dice. They were just being really strict with the door policy, saying members and regulars only. And you know, fair play or whatever. I get that they have a certain expectation for their crowd makeup, and they knew there was another gig Monday, so they weren't anxious to let all those fans in. But it was really frustrating. (Leaving aside completely the fact that, technically, I am actually in their target audience!!) Funnily enough, another girl and I had hung back from the group to finish our drinks, so we got in line alone and they let us through. We might have gotten all the way in (we were at the metal detectors) but then we noticed the others had been turned away so we got out of line.

Anyway, we talked to the bouncer guy and he kind of said well maybe later on if it's not too busy we'll let in non-members. (They were letting in non-member guys, just not girls unless you were with a large group of men.) So we went and had a drink at a nearby pub, then walked around the back and watched the band & Adam (saw Tommy & Monte, so that was cool) arrive. Finally, after much discussion, and hearing that several other people had gotten in (there were a million Adam fans wandering around that I didn't know - our group had about nine) we tried one more time. I was pretty embarrassed by this point, and kind of hanging back, so I don't know what was said, but they let us in. Only problem? We got in, paid and went to the main floor, and Adam had already performed! It was not ideal. The conspiracy theorist in me wants to believe that the guy timed it like that on purpose, because he hadn't been too nice over the night. A lot of the bouncers were fine, but a few were a bit rude and he was one.

Anyway, whatever. I had a fun night hanging out with everyone, and at least we know that Adam got a massive crowd out for his first UK gig. I'm sure tonight will be fantastic, with the number of fans who will be there, and seeing him twice would have been really above & beyond. Also, on the very bright side, I was smart and wore flats. The girls in heels were really really suffering by the end of the night!

And, just because I never posted it, here's my pic with Adam from when he was here before!! I did want to write it up (he signed my ipod! I babbled about sharpies! he was tall!) but I bet at this point it won't happen.



ETA: To the 95% of my flist who aren't Adam Lambert, Kris Allen, or AI fans in general, sorry for the recent spam. Someday I will find something else to talk about!
