Tickets... taking the bad with the good. :P  
My morning started off horrendously... We have a right turn lane that begins at our intersection near our subdivision - no other cars can come into the lane before the intersection because the lane begins with our turn. I ALWAYS stop there at the light when it's red - ALWAYS... except, of course, this morning - when there was a police officer watching me. :P I did slow down, but apparently I didn't come to a complete stop. :( The result? A $77 ticket! :P Wah! :P I have to say that it was certainly my fault and I take full responsibility for it, but as the police was writing up my citation, I looked in my rear view mirror and counted at least ten cars that didn't stop at that intersection either. :P

Needless to say, I've been extra careful about obeying the speed limit and the traffic laws since this morning. (Not that I was bad before, but I ended up over-doing it a bit on the way to work). No sense trying to tempt fate. :P

Speaking of tickets - thankfully my day got MUCH better from there. :) I ended up getting tickets (the ones that make me happy!) :) for some shows that Mark & I are planning to see when we're in NYC in June. :) So far we have tickets to "Caroline, or Change", "Wonderful Town", "Assassins", and "Millie" (of course!) :) All we need are our "Avenue Q" tickets (which I haven't been able to find a discount code for yet) and we'll be all set! :)

And I seem to be in a constant state of "full" these days. :P I've just been eating waaay too much lately. :( At work, a lot of the mutual fund and annuity companies are sending down their internal wholesalers to attend our Taxbusters party this weekend. So they're all starting to stop by the back office to visit and drop off food for us. It's SO nice of them, but I think we've been eating non-stop since last week... it's getting rather ridiculous! ;)
Current Mood: fullfull

I'm sorry to hear about your bad ticket. I guess on the the bright side, it was only $77 right?

I'm happy about your good tickets. I hope you get the Avenue Q ones. :) I may need you to recommend a nice play to see in NY pretty soon. I'll let you know. :D

Thanks, Carrie. :) And actually, you're right, it could have been a lot worse. :P

Are you going to be going to NYC soon? Woo hoo! When are you planning to go?

'Assassins' is the greatest most profound and theatrically relevent thing on Broadway. You will love it.
Sheri: Nick DeGruccioshutterbug93 on May 20th, 2004 11:31 pm (UTC)
I love "Assassins" - though I've never seen it fully staged. The concert version I saw in LA last September was quite possibly my most memorable theatre experience to date. :)

Awwwwww no way Sheri, you got a ticket? That sucks! I heard a lot of ppl haven't paid their tickets and they city is waiting for them to pay it. o_O

At least you're going back to NY! That is so kewl! I wish I could go to NY. *L* Then are you leaving?
Sheri: Kate Monstershutterbug93 on May 20th, 2004 11:34 pm (UTC)
I heard that too about the parking tickets - and I heard a lot of the violators were UH students. :P

Yay for NYC! :) I REALLY need a break - I haven't seen a show since February - and I was going a little stir crazy. :P I'm actually leaving on June 17th or so. :)

Sorry to hear about your ticket =( one of my other firends just got one too. =( I am happy to hear about your good ones too. Millie was suppose to play here in CA actually in Sacramento CA. I don't know if the time for that one passed or not. Darn, I didn't realize that show was going to end.
Sheri: Kevin - as Trevor Graydonshutterbug93 on May 20th, 2004 11:37 pm (UTC)
Thanks Mel. Millie will still be touring (and I think hitting CA later this summer) so at least that won't be ending. Too bad the Broadway run has to end though. :( You should try to see it when it gets to your area - it's a great show. :)

we should meet up while you are in the city - you are a sweetheart! :)
Sheri: John & Rodshutterbug93 on May 20th, 2004 11:39 pm (UTC)
We should! :) I always love talking with people who have great taste in theatre! :)

Oh, I'm sorry about your bad ticket :( but glad to hear about your good tickets. :) It has been a while that I got a ticket but, yes, I know that feeling that I've to be extra careful when something like that happened. :)

Hope you have a nice day, Sheri. *Hugs*

I was so careful that the cars behind me must've been annoyed with me. ;) The good tickets totally made up for the bad ones. :)

Hope your weekend is going well! *HUGS*
BOOM! goes the dynamite!mslauren2930 on May 20th, 2004 10:33 am (UTC)
just think....however bad things are for you at any given moment, you could be me. ;) and then I think just when things are really bad, I realize that others are even worse off than me. however, sometimes perspective sucks...and all you want is a little sympathy. so, here's a little sympathy from me to you because tickets stink. well, tickets of the police issued variety that is. :)
Sherishutterbug93 on May 20th, 2004 11:44 pm (UTC)
No sympathy necessary :) - I just wanted to relay the happenings of my day. :) Hope all goes well with your dental work. Please take it easy this weekend.

hey....thanks for the well wishes. I'm on the mend, and thankfully will never have to go through that again. but I gotta say, the anesthesia was fantastic. I fell right to sleep and woke up with a mouth full of gauze and the whole thing was over. I definitely made the right call with that. now I just have to be better with the rest of my teeth so I never get the pleasure of experiencing a root canal. *shudder*

Awwww.. poor Sheri *hugs!* My cousin got one a few months ago actually, and eventually he lost his liscence o.O But luckily, it's only one ticket, and I highly doubt you'd get another. I'm glad to hear about the other tickets though, and I hope you and Mark both have a fantastic time in NYC =)

Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on May 20th, 2004 11:46 pm (UTC)
Thanks for your sweet post, Kristen! :) Luckily I could find all my insurance papers and registration papers for the policeman... :P And Mark & I are SO excited to be going back to NYC! :) We love it there! :)

OMG, I've never been pulled over & I'm not sure how I'd react...burst into tears? Pee my pants? I dunno but I bet my heart would want to pound right outta my chest.

WOOT on the good kinda tickets you got tho'! :D
Sheri: Sydney - couchshutterbug93 on May 20th, 2004 11:51 pm (UTC)
I have to admit (rather sheepishly) that I have been pulled over once before - in CA for speeding. :( I was trying to make it to and from Manzanar for a photography project from Santa Barbara in a day. Which was a REALLY stupid thing to do considering the drive out there alone took me close to six and a half hours! But I think I almost burst into tears then... :P

And woo hoo for good tickets! :)

That's a total bummer about the traffic ticket.

I'm glad you were able to get the tickets to the shows you wanted. I was watching Inside Edition, and they said to check the airlines at midnight or 12:01 am. People who book their tickets, but haven't bought them risk their seats to other people. Something you might want to check out.
Sheri: Kate Monstershutterbug93 on May 20th, 2004 11:54 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the tip, Laura! :) I will definitely check it out! :)

Hope you're feeling better today! Take care!
