The splinters are painful but she doesn't feel it  
This was my night:

-Go to the FINAL NIGHT of the Dresden Dolls tour, in Wellington. sendthewolves is up, yay I've missed her, yay Dresden Dolls, awesomeness all around.
-Feeling a bit blah, so manage to grab a seat on the speaker at the front of the stage. Not only do I have a perfect unobstructed view, but I don't have to stand for three hours.
-The show is fucking perfect.
-Near the end, Brian Viglione wants to play Slide. Amanda Palmer can't remember the lyrics. "Who has an iPhone?" she asks. "I do," I say, and next thing I'm up on stage to pull up the lyrics from the Dresden Dolls website and sit beside her piano to prompt her if she needs it.
-Brian Viglione tells me I'm "dressed perfectly". I swoon inwardly whilst trying to be calm and normal and shit outwardly. Not sure if I succeeded.
-While she's scribbling down some of the lyrics, Amanda asks if I'm from Wellington. I tell her I've just moved here from Christchurch. "Wow, that's a complicated thing to get into," she says. I nod and turn around to show her my Christchurch cathedral tattoo. She flails over it for a while, and also talks about how surreal it was for her when she was in Christchurch earlier this week.
-They play Slide. I am sitting on stage trying not to cry. Amanda only needs prompting once.
-Amanda blows me a kiss as I jump offstage and back onto my speaker afterwards. She is gorgeous.
-Waiting in line for the meet and greet afterwards, many people comment on my tattoo. Great conversations are had.
-During meet and greet, I say something about how I have two Dresden Dolls-related tattoos, and yet everyone is commenting on the cathedral. She asks to see, and I show her. "Fucking awesome," she says, and gives me a kiss right on the mouth. I try not to swoon.
-Brian gives me a giant hug and a kiss right on the corner of my mouth. Tells me I look fucking amazing, again. I probably fail at not swooning this time.
-Later, in a bar, I realise I have, through a degree of separation, also kissed Neil Gaiman. I consider never washing my mouth again.

You had, like, the best night ever. I was going to say more but the flail hit and that about sums it up anyway.
