Here it is, not even noon yet, and we've already run our errands and we're back home! First we dropped off Blue for an oil change--and wonder of wonders, they didn't find more things to do on it!--then headed downtown to stand in line a few minutes for tickets to....
I know it's been out for a while, and we checked into getting tickets for one of the early performances in Chicago with the original Broadway cast. You could only go through ticket brokers, and the tickets were $300 and up. I was dying to see it, but it could wait! It's coming here in January (not the original cast, but that's okay), and tickets went on sale at the box office at 10 AM, and they'll be online at noon.
I'm glad we went up rather than waiting, because we got pretty good seats: center stage, about 17 or so rows back. All the closer rows go to those with season tickets, so that was kind of a bummer, but they're still good seats.
After we got our tickets, we went across the street to the booth a local radio station had set up: Spamapalooza. We got our set of coconuts for making galloping sounds, and we both played "Pin the limb on the Black Knight" and we each got a button. Mine says, "Run away!" and Ken's says (of course), "I fart in your general direction!" Hee heee! I think I saw ones that said, "Ni! Ni! Ni!" and I wish I could have gotten one of those, but "Run away!" is good, too.
For anyone who has never seen "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," this is making absolutely no sense whatsoever. Please indulge me and my fellow Monty Python lovers as we laugh about the Knights Who Say Ni, shrubbery, and Killer Rabbits, and say, "It's just a flesh wound."
I'm in the mood to watch that movie now. Let's watch a bit, shall we?
