First I knocked over a jug of white vinegar. Of course I knocked it over in the one place in the whole downstairs that's actually carpeted. Needless to say, it smells now. It's also a place with a big picture window, so when the sun comes shining in . . . it will really smell. Did I mention I just ran out of carpet and upholstery shampoo?
I found out this morning something happened with Twitter, causing me and others to lose all their friends! Grrrrrr! I've added everyone back that I can recall I was following. However if I didn't bore you out of your minds, you have to add me back too.
Alanis is coming to the US on tour, but as of yet I can't find where in the hell to buy tickets for her scheduled show in Pennsylvania. It's been announced on her page, but it's one of the few venues Ticketmaster doesn't have on their list, the other being a show that is a non-Ticketmaster venue. Now I know this venue and they only sell through Ticketmaster, so I am wondering why it's not on there. I can buy the tickets from the usual scalper sites for the show, at about 3x the normal price! Screw that, I will not give those vultures the money. Plus how they are offering the tickets when they haven't gone on sale yet is beyond me. There is an iTunes presale going on, which I qualify for . . . but again no where to buy tickets for my show! Looking at her website I noticed she announced what days the tickets all go on sale for what venues, but this one isn't listed. I'm beginning to think the show will be canceled or rescheduled.
Now I could buy tickets right now for a show in New York city, but it seems it's on a day where I am going to be presenting a paper at a conference (more on that in another post). And there is a DC show too . . . but it seems it's on a day when I'll be teaching that morning (more on that later), so I'd have to leave on a 3 hour trek down to Virginia after I got done. There will be a live broadcast of a recent show she did on MSN today, so I'm going to watch and debate whether I go to one of the other shows or I wait and hope something works out eventually with the Philly leg of the tour.
Finally I guess in a bit of good news, the kidney stone came out this morning. It was the biggest one yet, which is odd since it was definitely not the most painful one I've had. Often though once they make it into the bladder they break up into smaller bits or gravel. This one didn't and looking at it makes me ill that it came out of my body and my man parts. For those who want to know what a kidney stone looks like, pictures hidden below!
