I'm dating Sandra Oh

I've been dating a new girl for over four months now. She bears a striking resemblance to Sandra Oh, the actress who appeared in Under the Tuscan Sun, Sideways, and Grey's Anatomy. She constantly has people commenting to her on her resemblance to Sandra. Further, when we were backstage at an INXS concert, people were treating her "special", and someone apologized for interrupting "such a famous actress". I suppose if Sandra Oh did go to an INXS concert, she would be backstage. I told Stacie to go with it, but she had to admit that she wasn't Sandra Oh.

Guess which one is Stacie and which one is Sandra Oh:

In 2005, Sandra was on People's 50 Most Beautiful People.

INXS in Berkeley

I saw INXS perform a few weeks back in Berkeley, California. It was a great experience.

When I arrived at will call to pick up my aftershow passes, there was a slight mix up, so the will call people called down to backstage to see if I was "in". They got the word, and not only did I get my aftershow passes, but a pair of second row seats! I already had some seats (not nearly as good) so this was an unexpected bonus.


I went with my new girlfriend. I told her I was friends with the band, but I don't think she realized that I really knew them. During the concert, while I was jumping up in down to the music, the guys in the band would acknowledge me as they saw me. First Kirk, then Gary, and then JD.

After the show we went backstage. Kirk apologized for the mix-up, to which I replied I wished there were more mix-ups like that. He apologized for not being able to make it to my BBQ I was having the next day. They were letting some small thing like a show in Sacramento get in the way. We also talked to Tim, who also apologized for not making the BBQ, and said he would miss the chicken salad and deserts. He knew about the salad and deserts from other people on the eVite telling what they would bring. We also talked to Andrew and JD a bit. JD looked like he was in a lot of pain since he sprained his leg or pulled something a couple weeks before. You'd never know it from his performance.

My girlfriend Stacie took home a radish from the catering table as a souvenir.
