Main Idea/Thesis: It was as crazy and as good as I expected it to be.
Did Amber and I meet a bunch of cool kids in the ginormous line outside of Consol Energy Center on Thursday evening? Yes. Did Gaga have numerous costume changes? You betcha. Did she play all the hits for which she is known? Yup. DID SHE PLAY "ALEJANDRO"? YES! Check it out:

I would go see Gaga again (the lady CAN sing), BUT she needs to appear on stage way sooner than 9:15 p.m. Waiting so long--especially while having to stand the whole time (one of the joys of general admin, friends)--was starting to get tedious. Just sayin'. Everything else about the show was great. Gaga seemed grateful to her fans in a really genuine way, and the stage layout was convenient in that anyone who had a general admission ticket got a pretty spectacular view, thanks to the installed runways. Besides, I must say that it was quite fun to see lots of boys and girls go goo-goo over Gaga. Hehe :)
Fiction, poetry, and all that good stuff . . .
