Ever since my friend Jeff posted a video tribute about his beloved blue cup to the song Goodbye My Lover (you must see it here...I laugh as if it's the first time I've ever heard it every time), I've had James Blunt on my mind. Amazingly, I heard he was going to perform a small show at Flemings in SLC and I happened to score tickets to it. He was beautiful.

I don't normally have super star crushes, but I'd totally buy him on ebay tomorrow if I knew he was for sale!
When I arrived at the venue, I went to use the restroom. As I was coming back to the room where the concert was I noticed him sitting at a table taking a photo of himself. Well, I wasn't sure if it was him. Then when he walked into the room to sing a few songs, I found my guess was true.

DUH! Why didn't I sit down next to him and jump in his photo? I could kick myself. We could be eating steak together right now over my American howdy partnerish laughs and his super cute english muffin talk. If only I could replay that moment...I wouldn't make the same mistake.

So if any of you have connections out there...send the bloke back to me!

Did you know that he sold his sister on eBay? She's married to the guy who had the winning bid.

I'm glad you like my tribute to the blue cup that James Blunt helped me write. :)

I hope that you are able to win him on ebay. You deserve a great guy like him. (I'm assuming he's a great guy. I don't actually know him.)

Yeah, he told the selling his sister on ebay story at the concert. Maybe I offered him $7 cash as a buy now option...I'm sure he hasn't heard that one before.
