david foster and my own SISTER

on March 11, 2008 - 5:22pm

i like this thread 'cuz it's like my journal and i can see what i wrote, all of it, instead of only three stories. this just happened, it makes me sob writing it and it will for a looong time yet, i know. JOSH! has sideways touched MY OWN FAMILY, now. my real sister and i were talking about josh and celine, after he was on with her, just recently, the first time. sister, "MARGIE! did you catch him on last night?" me, "yees!" sister, "you don't know that song he sang?" me, "yeees!" sister, "NOOO! you don't. me, "YEEES!" and i launched into it. "the prayer", i sang all parts, josh's part and the harmony part, in both languages. sister, "oh! you do know it! you were reading the words!" me, "nooo! one of the ways to tell a grobie is that we know all the words!" sister, "have you heard him sing it live?" me, "i think so! not sure!" sister, "is it on any of his recordings?" me, "YEEES! with another person on his first DVD and i can show you how to find a clip of josh and celine and others too." sister, "how are josh and celine together?" me, omj! she's gonna let me josh-talk! me, "josh and celine have the same producer, david foster. josh had his first BIG start rehearsing celine for a show...." sister stopped me, "MARGIE! wait stop! david foster produces josh?" me, "yeees!" sister, "do you remember i worked for a record company in milwaukee? " me, "nooo!" sister, "i DID. narana records. does david f. record? is he from canada? does he have spiked hair? is he married to linda thompson?" sister described david to a T! me, "YEEES! all that." sister, "MARGIE! i KNOW david foster!" i swear at this point i swallowed my tongue! sister, "i had david on my phone every day. i had him and his wife IN MY OFFICE!, many times. david foster is JOSH's producer? i didn't know that. how unbelievable is that?" i am missing josh soooo badly, just when i think he's gone from me, he slips his hand into mine, "i'm not not gone! i'm right here, in your heart." i'm s/s i know! i can't help it!

verona

on March 9, 2008 - 2:08pm

hi all, i get to tell more? yeah! verona, day before concert, i got to my room and turned on tv. what's on... JOSHie's song on one of the soaps. OMJ! this is gonna be a good trip. my cell rings, it's one of my "sisters". " come to the turning stone. the groband and josh are staying here. went there. i was not that far away. found grobies right away. we all kind of stand out. you can tell when someone is a grobie. i found grobies in the lobby. we all paired off to walk around a bit. one of my JOSHie dreams was to get close enough to josh, when he was standing, to figure out for myself, how actually tall he is. we were walking in hallways, not stalking him! i SWEAR. omj! we sensed people coming quickly up behind us. we moved to the side and whoosh! a mess of people went around us.(HE brushed my arm) my friend,grabbing my arm, i'm dreaming about her doing that now, all the time,"margie! was that sweeney?" me, " it looks like him." my friend, "was that JOSH?" oh! be still my heart, yes it WAS! when josh heard her say, " josh!" he slowed and picked up sweeney, turned to us just a bit. he was scruffy, had glasses and a baseball cap on. josh, while walking quickly again, "on my way to rehearsal." a bit of people were there too and someone asked him,"does sweeney like the snow?" josh, " loves it!" put his head down and was outta there. so, how tall is he? well, much taller than me.
we went to dinner. heard that we could hear the rehearsal! they were letting grobies stand outside the venue in the hallway. we went right there! how do you stifle screams of, " omj! hi! i can't believe it's you!" talking to other grobies, when josh is inside rehearsing? but, we all did good. piles of people walking past us, "who's in there? what are you doing?" us basically, "josh groban. the singer who's performing tomorrow night here." there were many people going into and out of venue door too. we could hear him with door shut, very clearly, but when someone opened it, AAAHH! totally could hear him. josh went out the back way! darn but, we knew he wouldn't come out the door we were all at.
day of concert, HOG, of the lady running the m and g, was the elevator greeter. he was so cute. hog, " hi! first you have to give me a hug." me, "ok! but i really wish it were josh!" HOG, "allll of you are sayng that!" it was great! lindy and jack showed up. i didn't even try to get close to her. it's funny, whenever i feel josh and/or one of his people slipping away, i get them all much bigger and better later. jack and lindy left pretty quickly. the m and g broke up. all the grobies slipped apart. i went to the venue door i was assigned to go thru, and who was there? just inside the door? jack and lindy. all alone. i couldn't believe it! me, " hi lindy, how's it going? i'm margie76. i helped you slip out of the tent at tw." lindy, "that was a day, wasn't it?" me,"are you excited about the tour starting?" lindy, "well, actually it's a bit scary!" me, "aww! i'll try to keep scary spirits away from him." she laughed! i walked to my seat on air! i told the people next to me, " i'll try to not make you nuts! i just got to talk to his mom and dad, all by myself, again!" the lady,"his mom and dad! where? how?" she laughed. i pointed to them and brian too. her, "that's josh's mom and dad?" me, "yes!" that lady is a grobie too. i can't recall her name. she told me her family was coming to FL soon. i told her to call me. i forgot to give her my telephone number! lesson learned, when JOSHed, give people your tele number, first thing!

the flying ts

on March 6, 2008 - 6:39pm

hi all, DOG=daughter of a grobanite, josh-speak. here's the story,...
how do i think the only grobies to hear/see this? glowlights. we were the only people in our section, who had them and they all looked at us strangely, when we brought them out. DOG and i sat down into seats which we knew were great. piano stage end, up just a bit, perfect view of backstage. we saw the groband running around, zack, tim, tariq, out of costume. me, "molli! look! LOOK!" we were happy, happy! the people looking at us! not knowing what they are seeing. the lady next to molli, "is this your first josh concert?" molli, "nooo! what is this mom? my fourth?" me, "yes, baby." me to lady, "it's my fifth. i just got back from seeing him in paris." the lady, "you went all that way just for josh?" me, "yes! i love him." the lady, "oh! you're one of those!" told her going to see him in a few days again, the lady,"stop! you're scary!" omj! darn. grobies way up behind us, heard us talking and they hollered, "what's your username?" i told them. they said, "we've read your posts. you're funny." that was the first time anyone recognized my username.
the concert. the opener? can't recall. JOSHie's part! every time josh ran in our direction, we waved our glowlights and mouthed, " we love you, josh!" our present from josh, for that earlier remark, " you're scary!", two smiles right at us. the first time he nodded, winked and smiled, it was so obviously right at us that the people turned to us, "does he know you?" the second time, nod, wink , smile, the people, "how does he know you?" DOG and i slapping each other! "he doesn't know us. it's the glowlights."
josh started to intro a song. which? i can't recall. FWAP! a red t shirt lands by him. he picked it up, CHICKMAGNET. he nodded, turned it to crowd. huge crowd response. josh started again. FWAP! another t. josh picked it up. STUDLICIOUS josh, instant, huge red blush, all the way from neck to hairline. josh, " oh! my!" he turned it to show crowd. the crowd is passing out. large crowd response. josh dropped the t, put down his mike and turned back to crowd. off-mike, josh, " i'm not even going to face the crowd." he grabbed and cracked each ankle. running both his hands over his face, " focus! josh! focus." he picked mike back up and turned around. DOG and i slapping each other, "OMJ! did you hear that?" FWAP! another t shirt. HEARTTHROB josh picked it up. craig, " boom! BOOM!" on the drum. josh tossed it to craig with a " here, you need this." he started up the intro again and got thru the song.
i just met the "throwers". they were so nice. i'm looking for the/a pic of him holding the HEARTTHROB t. no one seems to have a pic of that one. we call that pic the "holy grail" of grobania.

the hand of josh, what's on radio? just this second? "february's song"

i know the bedpost story too.

bedpost

on March 4, 2008 - 2:47am

i can't believe you all are letting me tell these 'oldies' again. the bedpost story. i hope you don't mind the lead up to the actual happening, 'cuz the whole concerts are events for me. maybe, you'll let me tell " shirtless josh!" too? i saw that too. i'm pretty sure that i'm the only grobie who has seen that delicious sight.
the bedpost story, louisville, closer tour. i'm not the only grobie who saw this, but i'm the only one who's written about it, on threads.
josh started to talk, not intro'ing a song. friendly banter with the crowd... josh,"i got off the bus and up to my room. i jumped on the bed,..." huge crowd response. josh,"i jumped on the bed... " even bigger crowd response. josh," i can't even say the word, BED?" loudest, longest crowd response i've ever heard. josh, "well anyway... i jumped on the bed and i saw this thing flying right at my head. i thought it was ghosts or something." the hotel he was in has a reputation of being haunted. i remember the hotel... the seelbach. josh,"i got hit! on the head." the crowd,"awww!" josh,"i got a bump!" he ran up to the camera and showed the bump. he picked up the bedpost and showed us. it was HUGE! josh, holding bedpost,"i took it. do you think i'm going to get in trouble?" crowd,"oh! NO!" josh, " i'm going to return it!" he told the whole story, no blushing. i think it was because he was in control, not an audience member.
i just watched the clip. i'm close in this report. i think some parts josh said are edited out of the clip.
lindy at tw? shirtless josh? GMA? i have many joshie stories.
