Good grief, I'm insane!  
No big news flash, I'm sure, to most of you who have known me for a long time. ;) But I had been pondering my June LA trip for quite some time. I'd originally been scheduled to fly out on Friday evening (June 20th) and arrive in LA on early Saturday morning... I have a bunch of shows lined up to see and I'm meeting with a few potential clients as well.

But, then I get myself engulfed in this whole Luke & Noah thing and realize that the Daytime Emmys are being held in LA (at the freaking Kodak Theatre - where I spent waay too much time watching Kevin & Bets in 10Com there years ago...) on Friday night, the 20th!! Knowing that it's a once in a lifetime opportunity for me to do something as outrageous as that AND meet (in person) some of the terrific people I'd only spoken with on the message board, I called NWA to see how much it would cost (hypothetically) to change my flight to the day before...

Well, it appears that the cost of the flight for Thursday night is actually $100 LESS than my flight - so the $100 ticketing change fee would be waived AND I'd only have to pay $30 to change my flight...

So, I did...

How insane am I? (Please don't answer that, it's rhetorical) ;)

I'm excited and nervous at the same time, and it's kind of like when I went to the Sign Language Theatre Festival last October. I knew it would be amazing, but I'd never done anything like it so I am absolutely scared to death. Thank goodness I know the Kodak Theatre pretty well and how to get there - or I'd be a total mess.

What does one wear to an event like this?? Gosh, I don't even know! :P

you are *awesome* (as in not insane and I wholeheartedly think your plan is very cool).

I hope Mark is doing okay. :(

Awww, I have you to thank for my new found addiction interest. :D If the change for the air fare was too high, I wouldn't even think about it, but $30?? How could I pass that up? :)

Mark is doing much better now, thanks so much!!

And thank you, THANK YOU for introducing me to Luke & Noah!!

You aren't insane at all. I think it's awesome! I would love to go to the Emmys someday. I would fancy going if more AMC stars were up for nomination. I hope you have a blast. You'll need to tell us what one wears to an event like that so I'm prepared the day I decide to go someday.

Hey!! You and Laura should come along with me!! I'd LOVE to see you guys and my gosh, it'd be SOOO much fun!! :D They used to hold it in NYC, so now that they've moved it to LA, I want to take advantage of it! :D

Do a Flickr or Google Image Search and see what people wore last year. :-)

That's a great idea, though I have no idea what the fans who go to these things wear... I'm assuming not what the actors wear at all... I haven't a clue... :P

To me your plan sounds great and I hope you will enjoy it. :) I also hope you will share it with us. Big hugs to you, Sheri! :)

Thanks, Sabine!! I just got so excited when I found out that it cost me next to nothing to switch my flight... :D AND it'll be in a theatre that I've been to many, MANY times! :D

Hopefully, it'll all work out okay. Thanks for the encouragement! Big HUGS to you!!

Way cool! I'm glad you've jumped at the chance! I once changed my trip to MT by a day or two so that I could get to a Peter Mulvey concert - the furthest I've gone to hear him play! (Okay, so I was going there anyway, but still!)

Haha!! I was so sad that I was going to be flying in on the evening of the awards that I thought I should at least check to see how much it would be to change my flight... Surprisingly it was only $30! I took that as a good sign that I should just do it! ;)

VERY cool that you got to see Peter Mulvey in MT!! :D

Sounds very exciting! How did you get tickets?
Sheri: Luke & Noah 3shutterbug93 on June 2nd, 2008 06:57 am (UTC)
I just messaged you on MySpace! You and Carrie should totally join me!! I'm SOOO serious! :D That way we can all hang around the red carpet and stuff and go inside and see the awards!! The tickets are available on Ticketmaster - but might be a bit pricey. We really should all go!! It'll be SOOO much fun!!

I found a link to the Ticketmaster site where tickets are available - they range in price from $60 - $152. And of course, Ticketmaster has all those nasty fees.
