Don't Stop Me Now

Don't Stop Me Now

It truly is funny that I didn’t experience the extreme melancholia that most REDHEADS did with not winning the Birthday Bash ticket lottery.

I don’t know whether I am considered a TRUE REDHEAD or not, never having seen Sammy at the Birthday Bash, but having visited Cabo and the Cantina several times and seeing Sammy in concert several times (upfront fanatic at one), wearing RED for years and writing him a stage and screenplay based on his music, I FEEL like a TRUE REDHEAD. Lost my t-shirt in a traveling accident.

TURN UP THE MUSIC
TURN UP THE MUSIC

Here I am in spring of 1976, in my RED muumuu, on my first trip to Hawaii to visit my BFF (the one who got me my RED flannel PJs see RED to BED post). At the young age of 12 I was more into ABBA, and had always been into the Beatles. It wasn't 'till my brother's introduction to KISS, the fall of 76 in Belgium, that I got into hard rock (see beginning entries for history). But my enuthiasm for rock blossomed from there, where my juke-box-musical enthusiasm blossomed from my love of ABBA and the Beatles and making theatre. Funny how everything is intertwined.

As promised pictures from the height of my REDHEADED days. This was 1984 on a trip to Ashland Shakespeare Festival with my BFF (the ultra-conservative at the time boyfriend whom wouldn't let me hang at the Rock-N-Roll clubs in LA). We are still BFFs and I just saw him last weekend and told him next time I visit LA he MUST take me to the Whiskey or Roxy. Any ole ways, I cringe at these photos that should have been burned long ago, but that would be cheating. Once again, I thought I looked hot at the time. I had a cape! And the infamous RED jump suit.

May the Ticket Gods shine on me!
May the Ticket Gods shine on me!

How 'bout this, wouldn't it be totally cool if the tickets were at least favored a bit to those who are on The Red Rocker OFFICIAL site?! But I understand too to all those long time attendees, they can teach us NEWBEES a few things in Cabo. (New to BB not to Sammy Hagar liking).

Red to Bed
Red to Bed

So the deal's been set, it’s up to chance whether we get tickets or not. But you know that’s okay cause we’ll have fun either way; deliver the goods (scripts) formally and electronically so all’s good. This latest RED photo is my BFF (she a Toby Keith fan, not into Hagar but she gave me my RED ROCKIN pjs!) We’re still pretty cute for pushing 50! I can’t believe I just wrote that, I am only 48.   Can’t wait to meet other REDheads in Cabo!

Red will Knock 'em Dead
Red will Knock 'em Dead

My High School Graduation and the commencement of my RED days and my REDheaded ways. This weekend is my 30 year high school class reunion, where my love for the RED ROCKER’S music began. Our colors RED & Black. My grad school colors- RED and Black, my HIGH school now, RED Mountain High School.
Looking forward to meeting fellow REDheads in Cabo, first time at the B.B. for me. We are there for a short 10th,11th,12th and leave on the 13th. Wish we could do longer but I gotta go back to teach all my student REDheads. We’re staying at Villa Del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa 

My History of RED

I once played Scarlet in a TV commercial (1988 Plymouth Sundance Car gives a man Scarlet Fever). BB tickets are on my mind, that and RED, RED, RED, RED, RED, RED, RED!

Juke Box Hero?
Juke Box Hero?

I started writing juke-box musicals long before Rock of Ages. I was a junior high drama teacher who needed bigger cast shows so I wrote these “things” to give my students more opportunities to sing, dance and act. At the time I never thought of myself as a writer, really, I was just a drama teacher. Parents would ask me why I didn’t sell these “things”. My answer was,” I guess I just never really thought about it.” It was all just for the kids. When I went to grad school my instructors forced us to create; can’t find the perfect show for your HUGE cast, write one.

I finally get to see Rock of Ages tonight. If Chris D'Arienzo can do it, so can I. Just need to perfect my script (any of you Redheads want a read, let me know and send me your email). But beware, this ain't no Disney High School Musical.

Hey anybody else having probs friending people on this site? It just gives me this swirlie thingy. Maybe I am just unpopular. So if your're feeling unpopular, I'll be your fellow Redhead friend if you can make it happen. LOL! Don't let me miss tickets to the BB PLEASE! My son and I are going for his 14th birthday!
