My interview with JET was set for 11:45am the day after the show. To be honest I was a little nerve wracked at the idea of trying to get anywhere that early on time. Hello.. it’s called “Toni’s Night Out” for a reason! Anway, when we arrived at the offices for JET’s publicity people we were told that only Chris Cester (drums) and one other band member would be talking to us today. Nic was not feeling well and was saving his voice for later. But when we walked in and said hello, all the guys decided to stay and participate! Thanks guys! I’m totally flattered.. wink wink Watch and enjoy!
So you heard it hear first! It’s official and JET has confirmed. Toni is in fact a Genius! And the song is about me.
When we met, I thought to myself how they seemed super mellow in that cool, yet charming Oceaniac way (um and possibly a bit hung over?). But they had been up doing press since some un-Godly hour, like 7am! Awe, poor guys. So, at this point they may have been just going through the motions and expecting yet another stuffy interview.
Ummmm, but what they got was lil ole me. Happy, Bubbly Me! I follow the signs, I trust in God, I manifest my destiny… and then, I wing it!
Hello! I just interviewed JET! And better yet.. JET just interviewed me! Can you say Sweet?!
The part you didn’t quite hear was Mark saying “So, You were the pantless girl in the front row?!” LOL
|I know, I know, I seem confident and completely put together.. (not to mention I am a genius) but when I am in the presence of this much cuteness and musical talent.. I actually get quite shy. I had a touch of A.D.D. for sure.. (don’t all genius’s?) The whole time I kept thinking how Cam looks like Ralph (Rafe) Finnes in the movie Strange Days.. a bit of an obscure reference I know, but also one of my favorite movies and probably a cult classic by now. Anyway, do Aussie’s get mad if you say they resemble the English? hmm I’m not sure.. but either way it’s intended as a compliment.|
|Adorable indeed.. but they always are.. This past year, oddly enough, I keep meeting Australians.. a few roving soccer stars.. and even met one on the street. Is it fate? Is it Kismet? All leading up to the boys from JET! Nic, Chris, Cam, Mark and Toni! Coincidence? hmmm well, sure.. Maybe? But still.. I told you I follow signs.. and well, it can make a girl genius think! Hey look.. I’m so, with the band!
Super sweet and funny! Truly, what a blast! These guys are the real deal. So like I said, JET is back!
What have we learned today?
1. Being a musician is way better than moving fridges!
2. Australians are drawn to Toni.
3. Toni is in fact a Genius!
I hope you learned a few things and that you enjoyed my “day” out! Until next time! xo Toni
