Wow, thanks ticketmaster.

Very long story short, when I went to purchase flight of the conchords tickets, right when they went on sale, they seemed to be selling the back row first. I bought some tickets in row 58 but later on, got front row. I had an extra set of tickets on my hands, which I thought I would have to sell. I complained to ticketmaster on principle, knowing their return policy and yet they refunded my money. Right on ticketmaster!

Friday night was ~so~ fun. It almost didn't happen though.

HUGE line outside. We (4 derby girls and 2 boys) waited in line, hoping to get some of us in on our guest list. Waited for a long time in the cold. As we were literally 10 people from the door - SOLD OUT. Ack! We went in to see if there were any seats left on our guest list. Nope - all 15 taken. The girl took pity and said "just the two of you? go ahead" and we were all like "um, no, there is 6 of us." A bit of an eye roll and she told us to go in. Woohoo! Free admission after being sold out.

Our secondary team lost badly. It was terrible to watch it. Just to ~see~ their constant mistakes. But, it was fun. Drank a few PBR tallboys (yuck, I'm a guinness girl) and got a nice buzz. Got home about midnight and took my shift with the baby (fun times). BUT ... had a really, really, really good time. Can't wait to get back to derby!!!

What a good weekend! I spent mine running from here to there and everywhere. I'd much rather have been listening and laughing to Jemaine and Brett.

Lisa said...

Glad you had a good time. You deserved a night out!

Sarah R said...

That is awesome! Glad you had fun.

Now here's a confession: I googled them to find out who they are. :) I felt so out of the loop.

Sweet! So glad you got to go out & enjoy your PBR's- well, as much as anyone can really ~enjoy~ PBR!

You definitely deserve a night out woman!

G would approve of PBR, though secretly he believes Guinness is the best on the planet, and as a irishman I have to agree.


Kaci said...

Yay Ticketmaster!

Glad you had a good night out. PBR is the best cheap beer you can buy - not Guinness by any means but good for cheap beer!

I would KILL to see FOTC! I am so jealous!! Woot for ticketmaster refunding your money :)

Glad you had a good night out too!

Rachel said...

Cool on the refund, seems like pulling teeth to get anyone to refund anything anymore.
Sounds like a great weekend!

Write something snarky. C'mon, Nancy!
