Okay, so I take back...  
...every bad thought I've ever had about Priceline. :) Today I was able to get RT tickets for our October trip for $253. :) So it isn't on a "major" airline and we have to leave at noon - I'm just happy we found fares that we could afford. :)

And thanks to a GREAT seating tip on ATC, I was able to buy Row E tickets to Kevin's next show on Wednesday night for a high, but relatively good price. It's ridiculous that the seats they're offering online are Row A, but are priced at $40 more - and they're just 4 rows below the seats that I got! :P I'm still holding off on buying my tickets for the Sunday matinee in case anyone wants to come with us (hint, hint anyone out there) ;)

I still have to decide on other shows to see that weekend. Unfortunately the Colony Theatre is dark that weekend (it's become my favorite theatre in LA since seeing Side Show there two years ago...) as is the Ahmanson and Performance Riverside. :( I'm hoping that Nick will be directing something nearby so I can finally make it to one of his shows this year. :)

In non-theatre news, Mark's birthday is next week and I've been trying to find a nice place to take him that night. I think one night off our diets for a special occasion like that can't hurt. :) I was thinking of either taking him to Chai's Bistro in the Aloha Tower or Roy's... Both are great places with great food - I guess I have some time to decide. :)

And so another weekend comes to an end. :P I swear it seems the weekends are going by faster and faster - and I always start them with big plans to do things around the house (or with my web sites) and every Sunday night I wonder where all the time went. :P Hope you all have a great start to your week - I'm off to gather the hubby for the exercise video. :)

What date is the Sunday matinee? :)

Yikes! Oops, I guess I forgot to mention that one important detail, huh? :P Mark & I are seeing it on October 10th - and the tickets are pretty pricey (about $90 or so without fees) so if you'd rather not, that's totally understandable - though you know we'd love to see you both there. :)

I won't be able to go. :(

I was really looking forward to seeing you two again as well. I know Laura was excited about the whole thing too. Darn. :(

I'm sorry you won't be able to make it. It would've been lovely to have seen you this trip. :(

You're so lucky to have found decently priced airline tickets! It's just getting so expensive nowadays. Have fun on your trip in October!

Thanks Rachel! :) I was SO happy about the air fare! It's so hard because to get to anywhere from here we're at the mercy of the airlines. :( For once I'd just like to be able to drive to another state. ;)

I've missed you! How was the rest of your NYC trip?

I couldn't imagine living where I couldn't drive anywhere I wanted (Seattle or San Francisco mostly). But I've never been to Hawaii and I'm sure it's a lovely place to live; I guess we just make trade offs. The rest of my trip was great! I couldn't get tickets to "Avenue Q", but I did enjoy seeing "Mamma Mia" again (and for the first time in New York).

I'm sorry you didn't get to see "Avenue Q" - but I'm so glad to hear you had a nice trip! :)

I'm glad that you found tickets for your October trip. :) And I agree with your thoughts about "one night off your diets", it can't be a bad thing for a special occasion. Hope you both will have a wonderful night. :) *Hugs*

Thanks Sabine! :) I was very happy that I was able to find tickets that I could afford. :) And hopefully one night won't hurt our diet - besides, it's Mark's special day, we can afford to eat well that night. :)

Hope you're doing well and that the weather has improved. *HUGS*

I'm glad you were able to find ticket fares. :) I am wondering the same as Care about the date. :)

Thanks, Laura! :) And I can't believe I forgot to mention something as important as the date we were going! :P Ooops! :) We're actually going to try to go to the Sunday matinee on October 10th (I think it starts at 2:00pm). As I wrote in my response to Carrie's comment, the tickets are a bit pricey ($90 or so without fees for orchestra seats, less for tickets further back...) so I'll completely understand if you'd rather not - though you know I'd love to see you both. :)

I would still like to go, but I think I'd have to sit further back due to ticket price. I would still be able to meet with you though. :) Plans may change once I get a job again, so hopefully they will. I will try to save extra cash though in the mean time. :) I will keep you posted okay? :)

Sounds good, please let me know. :)
