We saw the show last night (Saturday) from Orch. 4 Row AA Seats 405 & 406, as usual. It was an incredible show, once again. Celine was in her best form. She was possibly in the best mood I have ever seen her be in. Very involved with the audience.

She gave us a ton of attention; lots of kisses and winks. The girl next to us was amazed at how much she acknowledged us. :)

Some things have changed throughout the show. Mainly her hair, again! She has added back her extentions and dyed her hair slightly darker than usual. No highlights. It looks very good on her. She also does not put her hair up in a pony tail when she changes into her tuxedo outfit. It was down the entire night until MHWGO & WAWW.

She gave the rose to a young girl, maybe 3 years old, sitting in Orch. 3 Row AA sitting with her mom. She was so adorable; blonde curly hair and wearing a long white dress. She had a small stuffed frog to give to Celine. As Celine walked towards her she quietly asked the mother for permission to give the rose to her daughter. She accepted, of course. The young girl met Celine on the steps and exchanged the frog for the rose and hugged Celine. It melted her heart; you could tell she didn't want to let the little girl go. When she walked back on stage she used the frog's hand to wave back to the little girl. She waved bye to the audience with the frog, as well. She kept giving everyone an "Awww" look. It was too cute! Then when she walked back stage she stood at the edge and clapped the frog's hands for the dancers and musicians. When Elijah was left on stage he acted like he was going to steal the frog and Celine played a little with that. Kind of back-and-forth. So cute.

After the show we saw Patrick and said hello; he seemed to be in a hurry though. The as we walked up the stair to exit Ramona spotted Rene, and we walked over to say hello to him. He was talking with some other ladies and when he saw us he asked Ramona, "How many times tonight?" She told him "60 times" and he laughed and told the ladies, "This woman has seen the show 60 times tonight!" He also asked her "How is everything going?" She said good, and we said good-bye because there were numerous people waiting for their turn to talk to him.

I thought that maybe he was in the audience because during "All the Way" Celine kept winking at someone towards the back of Front Orch. seats. It was my first time to see him so up close, and to talk to him. Although, I didn't say a word because I completely went blank. There were so many things we wished we would of said to him, but there is always next time I guess.

We are planning on seeing the show tonight and will share the news tomorrow. :)

Oh yea!

I forgot to tell you guys that right before "All the Way" she stopped while talking about Frank Sinatra to tell us that the "rumbling" noises we were hearing was not because of a technichal difficulty, but because there were fireworks outside. She said it was part of the show tonight. Come to find out...as we left Caesars, it was not fireworks, it was thunder! It was thundering and lightening and had rained some! Silly Celine! :)

It's been a Celine-full week. :) We've been to the show every night for the past week (minus Monday and Tuesday). 5 times total. Now, we have to go home. :(

Tonight was amazing, though! The audience was spectacular! So energized and very vocal! There was a special guest tonight, too! Right before "To Love You More" she did her usual speech about being there 4 years and yada-yada-yada. Then she announced that she had a special guest and talked about his career some. Guess who? The one and only...Taro Hakase! He performed with her because it is his 10th anniversary for his career and they are doing a documentary on him! It was incredible! :)

She gave him the rose, of course. He was on stage with her and she pretended to walk towards the crowd, but then turned around and handed it to him. We also met him after the show. Took pictures with him and everything. It was really great.

I don't want to go home, but I guess it's time. :Shrug:

More later....there's so much to tell.

Time to sleep now. Good night all.

Hey guys! I'm home... *yawn* It was sooo much fun, but it went way too fast. I got front row for the first time, dream come true! Sunday night was AMAZING, they were all so pumped to be going on vacation, Céline was belting it like never before! The show was longer also, because Céline would just start randomly babbling, hehe. She carried on a little conversation with a little kid somewhere in the balcony, too cute. *sigh* The only good things I can say about being home is that I get to see my cat who I missed desperately, and that Céline's not even in Vegas right now anyways, so I'm not missing anything! Hehe. It was sooo good to meet you Jen (Yay!!), Ramona (My dear new friend!), and Angela (Thanks so much for helping me through my first front row experience, I couldn't have done it without you, lol.)! I met Taro Hakase as well, that was really neat--- perfect timing. Céline still loves me too! She offered me da chair Sunday night, lol. Blew me lots and lots of kisses, love her. I'll post pictures as soon as I can, I'm in the process of editing them… *yawn* Oh yeah, and I gambled--- I won $24, not enough for a Céline ticket, but it worked in the Céline store, haha.

I'm back as well, sooo tired and exhausted from all of the excitement. I finally got to meet Ashley, after 17 months of IM'ing almost every single night. I also was lucky enough to meet Ramona and Angela, both very sweet, glad i got to meet you guys. The night i saw Celine was Saturday night the 8th, she was in the best mood i have seen her in out of the four i have seen, very energized. She looked beautiful as always, and the show had some new things, which is always nice. I was also lucky enough to see her on the night of the "special guest" Taro Hakase, he only performed on Friday, and Saturday night. Seeing the two of them together was unbelievable, they are so in sync with each other, and kept going back to back to each other. They were also filming when Taro was there, for a DVD or something. I also got to meet Taro, and get my picture with him, and Elijah, and Michel Dion! Who I had seen before, but never met. Ashley and i spent a lot of time together throughout the trip, I love you Ash, you truley are one of my best friends!:Hug2: We gambled together, watched the Fremont street experience, and went out to eat, plus of course we Celine shopped together! I have tons of pics, i will post them on here if i can figure out how. Ok, I think i am done rambling now hehe.

I can't believe I forgot to mention the fact that Celine winked at my husband during If i could, we were second row aisle seats, so she was basically right in front of us. He was pretty excited that she acknowledged him.;)

Great pictures!!!!!

I just woke up...and it's noon! :Jaw: ok, now I am getting some coffee and I will be checking my e-mail. I had a hard time finding a parking spot when I came home from work. The city is invaded by people who participate in the world famous Nijmeegse Four Day Marches. Those people walk a distance of 30,40 our 50 km every day. We have 49.000 participants this year and 1 million visitors to the city in the coming week for all the festivities during our annual 'Summer Fest'. I have to work though but I am sure I'll find some time to go and party :)

Just in case some people get confused, in europe a "," is replaced with a "." in numbers.

So 49.000 means 49,000 and 29,3 means 29.3.

Gotta love different cultures!

Next week: 50hz vs 60hz!

:Sun:

PS: 1km = .63 miles

Oh and the temperature is over 30 degrees Celsius this week...go ahead Darryl ;)

darryl
07-17-2006, 10:24 PM
Yeah, right now it's 37,3c here and about 65% humidity- so with the humidex it's over 40c.

To convert you take Celsius * 1.8 then add 32 => 99F with the humidity it's 104F.

To conver from F to C you take ( F - 32 ) then divide by 1.8.

Metres and Feet/Yards is easier to approximate- 1 Metre is roughly 3 feet or 1 yard - 39" to be exact.

The Metres to Feet / Kilometres to Miles is something that NASA forgot when they drove that spacecraft into a Moon....

She gave the rose to a young girl, maybe 3 years old, sitting in Orch. 3 Row AA sitting with her mom. She was so adorable; blonde curly hair and wearing a long white dress. She had a small stuffed frog to give to Celine. As Celine walked towards her she quietly asked the mother for permission to give the rose to her daughter. She accepted, of course.

Yep! that was me and my little best friend!! I have been her nanny for more than half her life...so I claim she is mine;) You really should take your neice!! Soph was 3 and she loved it!! Danced the whole time and clapped along...I was worried she might of got bored, but she didn't at all!

Hmm, nothing really about the show. Other than the new outfit, which I'm sure you've all heard about. She wears same black lacy top with the black suede jacket, tight black leggings, tall suede boots to her knees, red gloves up to her elbows, and a thick red belt around her waist. I'll let you guys decide if you like it or not...

But, all in all...everything was great! Even though the audience was HORRIBLE! (except for Sunday, I hear!) I'll try to post some pics later!

The show was so amazing!! But I have to say...everytime i saw the new outfit...I just kept thinking of Walt Disney's The Incredibles! It looks like it came straight from that movie:P! Don't you see the resemblence Angela! But Celine still looked beautiful! and of course didn't miss a note!
