Do you and Sora have interest in seeing Wicked in Sep? I really want to go, and I think it'd be a good time.
That would be awesome. I've been wanting to see that for a long time, and just barely missed it last time it was here...
What dates are you looking at?
Actually, I really want to see that, too -- it sounds like an awesome show. :D
I'm pretty sure we're free! Checking with Sora...
Do you want to take care of tickets, or shall we?

cool :) YAY!
If you guys could book the tickets, that would be great! I can pay you back anytime for my ticket, and I'm happy with any midrange price.
Okay! We'll pick up the tickets sometime soon. Ticketmaster's site is down at the moment, which is just as well, cause I'd prefer to go to the box office and avoid the fees.
I may not have much of a choice, trying to seat three people together. It's possible that there may not be three seats together for Sept 7 at all.
...Er. The Paramount theatre site
says it's running from Sept 20 to October 1... Was there a different theatre you wanted to go to instead? And in either case, what's the entire set of dates that work for you, in case I have to choose a different day due to availability?
Ope! You're right about the dates...I confused it with something else. Any weeknight performance would be fine. Weekends are doable and would work for me.
So I stopped by the box office this evening. Apparently the show is completely sold out.
I'll put a request up on my company's "for sale" list to see if anyone's got tickets they can't use...
Yeah. Looks like we should have gotten tickets in May or something ridiculous like that.
We can get tickets now, but the cheapest ones I can find (so far) are in the back few rows of the balcony, for ~$70 each. Not sure if that's acceptable to you - I'll keep looking.
Hmmm...well, if those turn out to be the only ones available, I say, "What the F*ck; let's just do it". In a world where I spend $30/wk on gas, it's not really that big of a deal to splurge. And, I *really* do want to see the show.
Yeah, pretty much.
So I got the tickets. With the extra fees and crap, they ended up being $81 each. (Apparently the site where I found them charges a 10% fee. Ergh.)
Also, I got four tickets, because they'd only sell them in pairs. So I've got a ticket I'll need to get rid of somehow. Unless someone else wants to join us, I can probably find a buyer at Amazon...
But we got tickets!
cool! I think it'll be worth it:)
What day are we going?
Ah, that'd be an important detail, yes.
Thursday, the 21st. 7:30 show.
Fuck! I agreed to go to the East coast for Rosh Ha'Shana without checking my calender, and I will be in Phillie the day of the show. Of bugger! If you can't find someone to take the ticket, I will still reimburse you for the cost...if you hear of anyone that might be willing to trade for a different day,let me know. Or, maybe I could put up a post on Craigslist and see? ::Sigh:: Ah well. You, me, and Sora should all find another time to get to get together and do something.
*snuggle* I'm glad you had as good a time as I did, love. :D This weekend was amazingly fun.
Sounds like a great time, despite the injuries. Good to hear!
Also, your goatee has become formidable.
Luckily, the injuries were post-con. The only affliction with which I had to contend in San Diego was the stifling heat - and apparently we escaped a near-100-degree weekend in Seattle, and the convention center is air-conditioned, so I can only complain so much about that. (I'd complain even less if our hostel room had A/C. Eugh.)
Yeah, it's ridiculous when Atlanta is 10-15 degrees cooler than Seattle. And then there's that whole weird West Coast thing where it doesn't necessarily get hotter the further south you go. Heh, seems like excellent timing for something like that, in your case.
Yeah, the timing was excellent... and yeah, the West Coast is pretty screwed up that way. Of course, that means on the converse side that when the rest of the country at this latitude is suffering negative-Fahrenheit temperatures and blinding snowstorms (hello, northern Minnesota), we get low-40s temperatures and some rain.
Hey dude, sounds like you're having a great time over there. I don't know when I'll get the chance, but I'm hoping to be doing some more traveling after this year, and if I'm ever up in Seattle I'll be sure to drop you a line.
Btw, have you ever run across a webcomic called Dominic Deegan? My most recent g/f introduced me to it and I'm hooked--I think you'd get a big kick out of it.
Let's chat on AIM again sometime soon. Take care! -J
It's fantastic here. If you ever need it, I've got a futon here which is available to you any time (provided I'm in town, of course).
I've been reading DD for probably about a year. Good stuff... though apparently a lot of people were really pissed about the recent character death. Overreactions, say I. Anyone who can make people care enough about a character to be angry or upset at his death is doing his job well.
Things I think rock in this post:
* OMG giant Lego Batman.
Pirates of Penzance
Meeting Pete Abrams
A stack of comics
glad to hear you're doing so well.
