Two of you should be as fangirlishly gleeful over this as I am.

She was a programmer, and she mentioned the "code is compiling!" strip; she said that she pondered what it would be like to be a truck driver and wrote some lyrics while code compiled. That's where Homecoming came from.

Aaaaaaaah. AND she played Grandmother Song with my grandmother in the audience. It was also such a small venue that we got to sit 5 feet from the stage and also talk to her briefly afterward, my grandma saying how much she enjoyed the show.

And ERIC'S SONG WAS THE SECOND ENCORE thanks to a very forceful fellow fan of it. That's my song of hers, and I was so disappointed it hadn't been played either time I'd seen her in concert. Especially since she's going to grad school in the fall and won't be performing full-time. So when she and Alex came back in and played it... Yes. I was SO HAPPY.

There is a picture of me with her, but since I do not carry a camera, it is in Erica's possession. (I went with Mom & Grandma & Erica. It was girls' night.)

-Lipstick recommendations! Lipstick is the only makeup I wear regularly. Or, I should say, wore regularly. My skin is really sensitive, and lipstick and chapstick in particular tend to cause reactions. Also, anything containing peppermint oil is bad (such as my favorite lip gloss, much to my dismay). Almay stopped making Pure Tints, and I haven't had any lipstick since. Currently, I'm using Nivea's Kiss of Moisture lip balm, and have not yet had a reaction from it, so if anyone wants me to give them the ingredients list for that to use in a quest for me, I'd love it. Or if you can think of anything offhand that's good for horribly sensitive skin.

-Do You Hear What I Hear, and Carol of the Bells - Specifically, a female vocalist's recording of Do You Hear What I Hear, without all the embellishments heard in versions that receive radio play. I like the lovely, simple, more traditional, sound. (I wouldn't mind the Bing Crosby version of it too, but the female vocalist version is something I've been searching for for years.) Other pretty, possibly calming, and not at all pop-type music or recommendations thereof, Christmas-related or not, is welcome also, since it's what I've been in the mood for. Music is always a good thing.

-Do something nice for someone, start a conversation with a friend you haven't talked to in awhile, brighten someone's day somehow. And feel free to tell me about it. I need to be a lot better about doing this, and reminders to do so are always welcome.
