Kid Rock and Yoga



For the past couple days Lisa, Christina and I have been in New York. We went for two specific reasons, hence the title, to see Kid Rock at Madison Square Garden and to do yoga with my yoga teacher. So we left on Wednesday morning, our first stop was lunch at Balthazaar. This little ditty especially for you Sarah.... We sat about three feet away from Bebe Neuwirth (Lillith from Cheers). She is tiny. Lisa and I were fascinated the whole time seeing her eat this enormous steak and a plate of fries and washing it down with a bowl of ice cream. Fun, right? After lunch I got in a cab and went uptown to do a yoga class with this girl Holly Coles who for anyone who knows about yoga is in a troupe called Tripsichore and they do kind of Cirque de Soleil type shows. It was a great class. At the same time Lisa and Christina went to Canal St. where for some reason a Chinese woman poked Lisa in the stomach with chopsticks and then she paid fifty bucks for a fake nano. They were also hanging out with two "salespeople" named Bags and Stinky or something like that. Come on. They were obviously lacking the adult supervision they desperately need from me. Right you guys? Wink wink.
After all that nonsense we got changed in new yoga clothes and headed uptown further to the Reebok sports club for our Duncan class. I loved it. Those guys weren't feeling it. That's okay. He's still my favorite.
On Thursday Dr. Dave (affectionately referred to as double D by big Dave), Lisa's husband and big Dave Christina's husband and my brother Mark (My Marc is in Vegas getting his own party on) met us and we went to the concert.




Once again, great fun. Love Kid Rock. He is an amazing performer. I have pictures, I'm gonna put them up soon. One of my favorites is of big Dave, who was totally feeling his party (which started on the train up with a couple double bourbons, juno how we do it), well Dave met a special friend, who we named Jimmy and they danced all night. If Kid Rock wasn't awesome enough that was a show in itself. At one point Dave asked "Jimmy" if he wanted to go on Dancing with the Stars, Jimmy replied, "Yeah, but I'm to fat." Ah Jimmy, we liked you just the way you are.



Lynyrd Skynrd was there, they were okay. Run DMC, who is fun and some other guy, Peter Nash, I think his name was and he and Kid Rock sang together, Love Stinks and a couple other songs. They were good. I so highly recommend going to see Kid Rock. It is the most fun.

Take a good close look at this picture and then give me the holla.I mean really. Come on. Juno we're going when he comes to New Jersey. Dr. Dave and big Dave can't understand why we love him so much. Show us how smart you are? Duh.

I wanna be a cowgirl baby!!! Kid Rock is hot-- my Dave doesn't get it but if any woman sees him in person, she will understand how Pamela Anderson fell for him! I never got it before I saw him, now I am kind of a groupie with Amy! As for Duncan, Amy's Yoga crush, I don't get that at all-- He is nooo Kid Rock, that I can tell you- He does have some freaky tatoos and a third nipple that he covered up with a giant Om sign, but other than that, I really don't get the facination and the yoga was as bizarre as his nipple! Overall, a fun time had by all- What's next?

He doesn't have a third nipple. Don't be a hater. He was just knee deep in his ADD, that's all. I can totally relate to that.

HOLLA! Amy, you've created a new groupie. Jared doesn't get it. In fact, he says he needs to give you a kick in the butt for turning me into a Kid Rock fan. But, that boy was HOT in so many ways. One of the best concerts I've ever seen. That other guy was Peter Wolf from G. Geils band... they sang Love Stinks, Must Have Got Lost, and Centerfield. Loved seeing Lisa and Christina again, and meeting their husbands. Although, once I saw Dave starting to get his groove on, I steered clear of him. It was fun to watch, but just a little bit scary. Jimmy had the time of his life, once he accepted that Lynyrd Skynrd weren't coming back to the stage. Amy, I alerted you to the Camden gig, so don't leave me out. Again, thanks for an amazing birthday gift. 8:45 Saturday morning and I'm listening to Kid Rock. HOLLA!!!! Mark

I love you all so desperately. Why? Because you make me laugh so hard. Come on Jared, jump on the band wagon baby. Juno you want to. You saw the picture.
