OMG! I am so excited! I'm going to see Conan!!!
Those of you who know and love me can appreciate my over-the-top enthusiasm for this news. I L.O.V.E. Conan. In fact, he made my Someday List. I have always wanted to see him live, but I honestly never thought it would happen.
When he was in New York I thought, dang! I'll never get to NY. When he was in L.A. I thought, dang! I'll never get to L.A. And when he went off the air I thought, dang! Now all hopes are dashed of ever seeing him in person.
But because he is going on this fabulous tour to a city near me (Minneapolis on May 18) I will get to check that one off my Someday List: I will get to see him live, on stage, in all his orange bouffant glory.
I saw it on Twitter this morning and nearly peed my pants. I quickly texted Grant ("Conan is coming to Mpls May 18, can we go? Pleeeeease?") Not that I really needed to ask because HELLO of course we are going! But he responded with an enthusiastic YES (after some discussion about our budget). So GAME ON!
His website says it will be "A night of music, comedy, hugging, and the occasional awkward silence." Awesome.
Entertainment Weekly had it so right when they said Conan is funnier in 140 characters on Twitter than Jay Leno is for an entire hour on his show. Go Team Coco! (@ConanOBrien)
