I saw back in March 2007 that there was going to be a Josh concert at MSG on the 12th. I was so buzzed and wouldn't you know it, all the tickets were sold out! But on March 10th 2007, the website finally let me get acsess to last minute tickets! And they were the best yet! Section 90!!!!!!!! So when March 12th came, it was a school day and I even wrote about the concert later that afternoon in the margins of my paper, but my friend Anna wasn't very supportive LOL.
Well when I got home, the sun was setting (it made the suspense even more pounding lol) and my dad came home from work and as soon as he came home which was 5:00 PM, my mom, me, my sister, and my dad all got ready, got in the car and drove to the subway station. My mom and sister had to do something in manhattan for my sister's college and my dad and I were going to see Josh at THE GARDEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My mom and sister got off a stop early and I thought I saw a guy that looked like Josh on the train. When we got there, the place was HUUUUUUUUUUUGE! I kept asking my dad again and again before the concert started, "OMG daddy am I really here? Is Josh really in the same area as we are?! Omg omg omg omg omg...I think I'm dreaming."
This is from my xanga site blog entry from that day! Enjoy!
OH MY GOOD GOLLY JOSH I MET HIM AND IT WAS SO COOOOOOOOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh yeah, and the couple who's husband looked like Josh thought we were crazy. lol. And then I couldn't stay still for the rest. He sang songs, and there were special lighting affects, and every time the spotlight got on our part of the audience I waved hoping Josh would wave back to me! And when he sang, he went near the AUDIENCE AND OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG AND DURING ONE PART OF THE SONGS MY DAD AND I HEARD PEOPLE SCREAMING FROM IN BACK OF US AND HE WALKED DOWN THE AISLE AND I WAS LIKE FIVE FEET AWAY FROM HIM Oh yeah and my dad screamed "JOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSH OVER HEREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!" But he didn't come to us BUT I will tell you in a minute that AN EVEN BIGGER SURPRISE HAPPENED! Well he sang songs , and talked about his trip to south africa and it was so cute. It totally proves that everyone deserves to have the chance to dream in life And he was so funny at times! Like when he went to the key board, he sang sesame street songs and he interacted with the front row grrrr. lol. He talked to a girl named Samantha and she gave him a puppet.
Okay so after the concert, I wlaked out with my dad and I was talking to my sister on my dad's cell phone and we were both talking about if we could Josh at the BACK~ENTRANCE! AND OKAY ! LOL THERE WAS AN ENTRANCE AND I asked a lady if that's where Josh would be coming out of, and she said supposedly. But it was the place where his stage stuff where coming out into trucks and stuff. His driver said that he probably left already. AND HERE'S THE THING, I was ready to turn around but then I looked up to the 12:00 AM Manhattan sky and prayed to Hashem that he would show. I wasn't ready to give up. And my prayers and determination were answered *WINK*, for a guard said he would be coming out of another way and there was like 16-20 people a small group, or like our little Grobanite family headed out to the back entrance and it was sooo late and we were wating like, forever lol. I met this lady who has been a fan of Josh for 6 years and met him 3 times already and I said to her and her friends
Me:"I really admire your loyalty lol. You're staying out this late, I want him to show too, but he might not."
And they said "Hey, you're out too!"
Me: "Yeah lol."
And they said:"I admire your father's patience."
And it's true it was like close to 12:10 AM and I was sleepy and guess what?! A truck came by and a long large cardboard plank from the stage, fell of the truck and sat on the road.
Then this fangirl ran up to it LOL and used chewed gum EWWW LOL and pasted a mask of Josh's face onto it and used a sharpie to draw a body WITH HIM WITH NO CLOTHES LOOOOOOL *DROOL X3* I can't believe it was from the stage!!!!!!!! and then the guard said he would be out in about 45 minutes. I couldn't believe it but I was ready to wait that long. I had a like a small convo with one of the fnagirls who didn't know and said "OMG LOL IMAGINE IF HE SEES THIS?!" "I KNOW RIGHT?! "
THEN, A BLACK VAN CAME BY,
AND EVERYONE INCLUDING ME AND MY DAD SCREAMED,
AND I MET HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
AND I HE WAS LIKE RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME AND TO GET HIS ATTENTION I CALLED HIM "JOSHY!" LIKE I DID WITH "WAYNEY" And the thing is, I didn't praise his singing, I told him that I really admire his charity work I think he said thanks
But\.........i think he was a little nervous because a few seconds after I kissed him on his neck, he was well...staring at me. I smiled him like I did when Bambi smiled at the Great Prince in the first Bambi movie but then he looked away from me. *sigh* I feel stupid.
And my dad and I walked off happily! But next time I see him, I vow not to scare him and I heard he loves all his fans. I kept complaining about this to my dad, and he said, "Well of course he looked tierd and worn out! You try performing for 90 minutes straight!" Well he proabaly thinks I'm crazier than a horses backside. I hope not... Anyway, that was an expirence AND IT WAS A NIGHT TO REMEMBER!~!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'LL NEVER FORGET "I LOVE YOU JOSH!" "I LOVE YOU TOO!"
I remember this one so well! AND A DAY LATER, I TOOK OFF MY SIMBA SHIRT WHEN I WAS CHANGING INTO MY PAJAMAS I FOUND A HAIR ON MY SIMBA SHIRT AND IT WAS LONG AND BOUNCY AND IT DIDN'T MATCH ANY OF THE HAIRS IN MY FAMILY'S SO IT WAS JOSHS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ah heh heh heh.
