The Mother Of All Mock Dock Posts – With The Promised Photo(s)

I say that not because this post will be particularly clever or funny or mocky, but because I have SO MUCH to tell you about this Chicago trip that I’m quite certain it will be the longest post in Mock Dock history.  So, if you’re interested, plan on staying awhile.  If you’re not interested, just scroll down to the more tolerable bite-size posts that are typical of The Mock Dock. 

Ok.  So we started our journey on Tuesday morning at 10ish, and piled into Leroy’s giant tricked out Tahoe.  Leroy, God bless ‘er, was SICK AS A DOG, but still totally psyched and ready for the festivities, and armed with loads of OTC drugs to combat funk symptoms.  So off we went.

Naturally, we blasted the latest Britney Spears album pretty much the whole way there.  We got to our hotel (Westin on Michigan Ave – just a few steps from Water Tower), threw our stuff in the room, and headed out to shop at H&M and Filene’s Basement before grabbing lunch/dinner at Ditka’s.  We had absolutely amazing service at pretty much every establishment we patroned over this past two days, and Ditka’s was no exception.  Food was delish, and our bartender/waiter was precious.  We stayed there a couple hours and then went back to the room to prepare for the Mother Of All Concerts.

Yup!  She’s flawed you guys.  Specifically, the tag on her bikini is sticking straight out.  Horrors!

Holy crap.  She’s got at least 3-4 years on me, and yet, this body would be the envy of many 20 year olds. 

You guys, I have to PACK tonight.  You know, for the big Chicago extravaganza which begins promptly at 9am tomorrow.  I’m still very undecided about what I’ll wear to the concert, and that indecision is now heightened by my complete lack of self-esteem after seeing Cindy Crawford’s perfection in a bikini.  Not that I was planning on wearing a bikini, mind you.  But you know what I mean.

Anyway, I am so super excited.  The plan is to drive up to Chi-town, get there around noon-ish, check in to our swank hotel, revel in the swankiness of it, do a little shopping, have a late lunch/early dinner, and then go back to the swankocity of our hotel to prepare ourselves for the Big Show. 

If any of you are at or around the Big Show tomorrow night in Chicago, I promise you’ll notice us.  I’ll just leave it at that. 🙂

You Know What I Love?

I love days like today.  Days where the weather is positively gorgeous, and I really don’t have any pressing responsibilities. 

I took Mini-Mock to the park today, and then later to his grandparents’ house, where we all marveled at his genius and sweetness and perfection, which is what we often do.  Grandma Mock said, “Wow – his hair already needs cutting again” – which isn’t all that surprising since he has PILES of hair just like Mr. Mock does.  She then said, “You oughta learn how to cut it instead of taking him to Cookie Cutters all the time.”  And Mini-Mock piped up and said, “No Mommy – you can’t cut it because it’s fragile.”   I have no idea where he picked up that word, but it sparked a total gigglefest.

When Mini-Mock was just learning to talk, and was still really grabby, he liked to pull on my necklaces.  Sometimes that was ok, because I’ve got some sturdy ones, but sometimes it was decidedly NOT ok.  I would say, “Honey – you can’t pull this necklace because it’s delicate.”  And for MONTHS after that, he would look at my necklaces and say, “That necklace is delikitten.”

I am sooooo loving the precious and adorable age of three.  I don’t want him to get bigger.  Any ideas how I can stop that from happening?

In other news, my chest and arms are FRIED.  Not to the point of pain, but certainly to the point of being justifiably ridiculed.  I soooooooo love the sun. 

And to top it all off, the Daisy-Leroy-Mockarena roadtrip to Chicago is happening this Tuesday/Wednesday, and I cannot WAIT.  We are going to shop and eat and drink and dance our collective assular areas off at the Britney concert.  We’re not even taking a decoy teenager with us to make ourselves look less pathetic for being practically 40 and going to a Britney Spears concert.  We are going there loud and proud, and would be EVEN IF we weren’t going to be slightly disguised (you’ll have to wait for photos to see).

Good times, mockdockers.  Good times.

Audio Of Britney Concert Goer Flipping. The Freak. OUT.

So at the Vancouver concert, which was being held in a non-smoking building, Britney’s show got temporarily halted due to the air around the stage being filled with smokity smokeness. And so the show stopped, and the announcer person instructed all smokers to stop smokifying up the place, so that the concert could resume. And the chick who apparently made this video of a black stage (way to go, concert chick!) is PISSED OFF about this.

I don’t know why this amuses me as much as it does. But I’m amused.



Alet and astute mockdocker cyazdani submitted an excellent recap of Britney’s opening night concert in New Orleans, complete with pictures of these two attendees.

I repeat.  These were ATTENDEES, not dancers. 


Anyway, the full report is after the jump.  I think we should all give a round of cyberapplause to cyazdani for the scoop.
