You like me! Of course, you probably don't know me very well.

Jason Mraz was in town on Monday and Tuesday, and several of my facebook friends went to see him. He was his regular goofy self. He wore a fleece dinosaur onesie onstage. Star says he seemed high, which, yeah. I think that’s sort of his thing.

I used to be really really into Jason Mraz. Like, not only do I have bootleg bar recordings of many of his pre-fame shows, I have them memorized, drunken banter and all. Even on my phone now I have 128 Mraz songs.

I could sing ‘If It Kills Me‘ from ¬†We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things.¬†even with amnesia and a concussion.

Somehow, though, I’m sort of over it. I mean, I still respect him as a musician (particularly as a lyricist, because he’s FUNNY and what’s better than funny songs?), but this one time in college I found out that he had a girlfriend and I felt like I’d been dumped. Literally. I was as upset as I’d ever been in high school when broken up with by an actual boyfriend – you know, one who knew that I existed and stuff? I even had a serious, live in boyfriend of my own at the time. Of course, I wasn’t happy. I had a job I hated, I was in the process of getting over that actual boyfriend (although we didn’t break up for like a year), I didn’t like my town, I didn’t like my roommates… I probably needed something to hang on to.

Oh Jason, thanks for being there for me, then. I’m sorry I don’t seem to need you anymore, but I’m sure someone else does, so you just keep doing your thing.

Dino suit and all.
