Fave Memory: This would have to be the night of her August 28, 2001
concert in Chicago. Before the concert, my mom and I went to a place
called Excalibur, where there was a pre-concert party. They had an
"Express Yourself" dance contest. Being the shy person
that I am, I don't know what the heck it was that got me to go onstage and
dance (totally unrehearsed, I might add) to "Material Girl." The
audience was cheering me on, and I was a winner, too! I wasn't even
that nervous when I got up onstage. In fact, when I had finished, I
exclaimed: 'I want to do it again!' That night was made even
greater, because, after the party, I got to see Madonna live in concert
"for the very first time!" I kind of like to think, that,
in some crazy way, Madonna gave me the courage to go up onstage that night
and to express myself. Thank you, Madonna! :O)

that makes me a bitch, okay."
more about Allison!
Have you met Madonna? As of yet, no.
What is your favorite item in your collection and why?
Hmm.....not that I don't love every piece of Madonna memorabilia that I
own, but, I would have to say that my VHS of A League of Their Own is
my favorite, because that was the movie that made me a fan a
Madonna. Plus, I love my Something to Remember CD, my first
Madonna album, as well as the very first picture of Madonna to decorate my
wall: the "Spain" poster.
What's a way you show your love for Madonna?
I support all of her efforts and career moves, even if I don't agree with
them or understand them. But I still support her, and that's what
counts. I support her because I know that whenever she does
anything, it's because SHE wants to do it, and I totally respect her for
Any personal messages you would like to share: Even though
she may not be putting it on balloons anymore, I still believe in her
ultimate message to her fans: "Dreams come true." Madonna
has unquestionably proved that, with hard work and determination, anyone
can become who they want to be and do what they want to do. You just
have to be willing to put in the effort and to take a chance. And,
of course, you gotta "Express Yourself!"
If anybody wants to talk, or buy/sell/trade Madonna goodies, just e-mail
me! I'd love to hear from all you fellow Madonna fans out there!
I also do original Madonna art works, so, if anyone is interested, just
let me know. I donated one of my small pieces (they're all small)
:o) to an AIDS charity auction, and it sold for 50 dollars!
Allison shows her 80's style!
