Somehow I was appointed official "ticket getter" of 2 shows that went on sale today at 10:00. I don't want to see either of these shows, but I'm more than happy to get tickets. Through the joyful musings of Ticketmaster, I reloaded, refreshed, rebooted (their well designed website crashed my browser 3 times, my entire computer twice), called and held for a total of 2 hours (and that's just for one show). This must be why they call it "Ticketbastard". I skipped the bastards for the second show and called the venue directly, got great seats apparently (but they won't mail me the tickets which is kind of scary). What makes it more painful is that I got better seats at the show that was $49 per ticket than I did to the show that was $85. I had great seats until my browser crashed and the next three times I tried to confirm, they stuck me in the back. Oh well. Really, who wants to get that close to Billy Joel and Elton John? ICK. My mother is probably the only one. The really, really bad part is that I missed my fave episode of MST3k while fighting with their website. Oh well, time to break out my tape collection (or the Billy Joel DVD which sounds equally as fun <gag> ). <hums "I'm a rocket powered piano man whose candle went out in the wind so I didn't start the fire" . . . or something>
