I know he'll regret it forever. Brava, Ms. Harlot.
He's a fool. A big, funky, cool fool.
perhaps if you had been working on a Raspberry Beret the security personell would have allowed a pic.
On Point No. 7?
I don't think it would have been petty at all to reply, "Well as long as I can fire up a doobie at will, I'll be fine with no pictures of the sock, big guy..." (Not that you would, of course.)
Just a question: did you wear the mango tank last night, just to give him a little glimpse of what he's missed? (okay,a big glimpse)
I bet if you knit him something purple, he'd change his mind...
Ha! He'd probably like those mauve Dublin Bay socks. They'd look mighty fine under some purple trousers. But I think Stephanie's made the right choice in breaking it off with Prince. . . not that looks are everything, but Joe IS way cuter.
It was so beautiful while it lasted ! :0)
I know that this will seriously put a crimp in our fledgling relationship, Stephanie, but do you...er...know that Prince is MARRIED? Yep, I'm as gobsmacked as you but, cross my heart, I saw him and his wife on some entertainment show a couple of weeks ago.
Well, it's been nice knowin' ya'.
watch what you say about Bono,harlot or there may be a cat fight.lol.just kidding people,really.speaking of seeing u2 last time they were here.did you go to muchmusic after to see them too?dh had to grab the back of my jacket to hold me back from grabbing him.if i were you i would keep riding my bike up and down his street,he's sure to notice you lol
In 1969 a groupie said the same thing to me about Timothy Schmidt of the Eagles (then he was with Poco)...same words, I swear. That Mango top really might have made a difference, however.
Oh Great Yarn Harlot, I swear...you are about the only person I know who's writing can actually make me, without fail/warning, spew Diet Pepsi out my nose....not to mention the strange, concerned looks from co-workers regarding this bizarre occurrence. Thanks for laugh!!
Ah, concert love. I remember when I saw the Smashing Pumpkins for the first time... holding my lighter aloft, the lights passing over the crowd... James Iha looked *right*at*me. No doubt about it. In that brief moment, we knew each other, and the love we shared - though it would never be realised in the flesh - sparkled through the arena like lightning.
...then I dropped my lighter because it burned the hell out of my thumb.
At least the socks got a good show. You should have offered to knit the security goon a namebadge cozy in exchange for the picture. ;)
Well, if Prince won't wear a gansey, how a bout a purple motorcycle jacket, a la Deborah Newton. Didn't she knit a purple one with cables?
Bless you Miss Yarn Harlot, err.. Mrs. Yarn Harlot. I wandered in from Margene's blog and this is clearly on my top 3 list of blog posts. Now to find the other 2!
Oh, Stephanie, I am shedding a single, perfect tear after reading this post. For what could have been, but never was? Hmm. I think it's because I'm laughing. Perhaps His Purpleness has been prevented from contacting you, for his own safety. Maybe his people are afraid he would abandon his career for you.
One of the best stadium concerts I've even seen was, yes, Prince: Lovesexy Tour, 1988. Fabulous. Amazing. If I recall correctly, he did seem to be looking for someone in the audience, but this was in Vancouver, so he must've known you weren't there.
(I'm pretty sure that knitting for Prince would involve novelty yarn.)
One of my straight guy friends said once, "At least once in every man's life he wonders if he's gay, and usually the reason for that question is Prince. No man should be allowed to be that beautiful."
I'm glad you had a great time! Even though I almost peed my pants thinking of Prince wearing that sweater, it would be nice to have such a small husband/lovah to knit for, wouldn't it? No more 22" to the pits sweaters! You could start decreasing at 12"! * wistful sigh*
Oh Stephanie, that was so graceful, your acceptance. But you know, everyone is talking about sweaters, without even considering how totally BAD his Highness would look in that male thong they have a pattern for on KITTY!! Quick knit, too, to enjoy the modelling of finished product!...
OMG...I googled Prince concert reviews and found THIS, your entry! It was the perfect read, especially after attending the Prince concert in Philadelphia myself just a few days back. You put into words so much of the same silly, certain, uncertain things I've also felt for him. I thought that I was the only one! LOL!
If we have this much in common, there must be even more, so I will continue reading you to find more joy. I also like to knit...woohoo...but am merely an amateur!
Loved your writing, your wit...
You can find me on Free Open Diary under the name "Blonde Harlow" 'Seasons of a Garden Sprite".
PS...I posted a bit of this entry in my own diary because you summed up things so eloquently. Hope that was okay!
EXACTLY the way I felt!! I wanted to kick myself because I didn't find out until after my SECOND concert that he didn't allow jeans on stage, and I wouldn't have worn them if I knew!! Of course, I know that's the only reason I wasn't picked for the stage lol...glad you had fun, me too!!
After re-reading your hilarious piece, I had to especially defer to #4...I, too, would sleep with him if he asked...hey, you can always get a new husband, but THERE IS ONLY ONE PRINCE!! And as I keep hearing, life is not a dress rehersal, it's the real thing!!
LOVE YOUR INPUT AND THANK GOODNESS SOMEONE WHO DID NOT WEAR PURPLE....I GOT A PURPLE THONG BUT OTHERWISE JUST WAS NOT FEELING THE WEAR PURPLE THANG BUT IF IT WAS TO FEEL HIS ROYAL PURPLE BET YOU I WOULD BE FEELING IT.
