Unfortunate good friend Celine is dealing with a nasty bug and has had to reschedule her Salt Lake concert until Feb 22 (so far away!!!) To everyone out there anxious for a detailed description of the concert will have to wait just a bit longer. The silver lining in this terrible news...there might be more tickets available for those unable to attend the later concert. More good still have time to save money for tickets :). Good news for me...the concert is now more of a prelude to and celebration of graduation instead of motivation to help me get through school and stupid papers (as I do not foresee this next semester to be extremely difficult).

As for me, I will be viewing Celine's A New Day DVD to help me endure yet another long period of waiting.

The time apart will only make you want her more. At least now you will have plenty of time to find a lovely concert partner.

Congratulation on your selection of a suitable companion to escort you to the Celine Dion Concert. Namely, moi! You will be happy to know that I have been a Celine Dion enthusiast since I came into puberty and still am. Although my exuberance has been dwindeling as of late because I cannot seem to persuade my wife to join me in this life long obsession. For example, I missed all of her shows in Las Vegas because she adimently refused to come with me, or even let me buy a ticket. I am sure you can empathize with my plight. I will promise you to be a perfect gentleman, I will even bring a hanky if our emotions take us to new heights, which is to be expected.
Sincerely, Fridrik Rafn
