01:05 pm - Guess who's got their TAO'05 ticket?
Got out at noon today to run over to Solid Grooves & get a TAO ticket. Followed Yahoo's directions to get there - using freeways - and realized that I do sorta miss driving freeways, and having a bit of time on the way to work. Perhaps I need to find a longer way to work? *giggle* But I won't complain about a fast trip home!

It wasn't that hard to find, except that it's right at a triangle intersection that made me go past & come back before I saw it the first time. Then I had to find parking. LOL. I only had to circle the block once, but there really isn't much parking around it.

I almost didn't even stop, though. When I drove by it the first time, I saw a "closed" sign up in the window. Fortunately I decided to park anyway & check their hours. Between the two, people showed up & opened the door, even if they didn't put up the "open" sign. (They open at noon everyday, so I timed it perfect. ^^) Vinyl store, with just a few CDs up in the front and a TON of party cards. Cool little store, especially for DJs. Lots of turntables along one wall to listen to records on with big "put your vinyl back" signs over them. *giggle*

$42 for my ticket: $40 face + (I assume) $2 service charge. The tickets are actually Ticketmaster tickets, and they had 4 left. I wonder how many they started with? But I guess if people can't find $40 tickets, let me know and I can go by again to see if they still have any.

Took surface streets back, because I recognized the area. Actually swung by Subway and had some lunch too. Back to work now, though.

While I was eating, it crossed my mind that maybe on some (or all) of those no-lunch days I'm just having too much at breakfast. 'cause this morning was much lighter than the average breakfast I pick up at McD's.

Actually it was the first time I had listened to that mix (Ultra.Chilled 02). Had never heard it before, but I try to make a habit of noting what's on my iPod if/when I post from work.

I guess I should look around for more stuff from 'em. ^^

When are you guys headed to TX? I'll be down for TPNight on the 30th, so right now I'm hoping you're not leaving until the 31st! :^)

Aw man...sadly we're outta here on the 23rd (to Denver, from which we'll fly to Dallas) and aren't back until the 1st (crazily enough from Dallas->Denver->Burbank...yikes, I dislike da plane rides). However, if you can stick around on the 1st for a bit we might actually be able to hang. I'll have to look at exactly when we're due back in the area. :D

My return flight is on Sunday the 2nd, leaving Burbank Airport at 3:30pm. We'll have to try and hang when you get into town! ^^
