Do You Have Any Cheese To Go With This Whine?

I'm attempting to post from my iPhone for the first time. I haven't been able to make it work before. If it's all crazy we'll know why. I'm posting from my bed, sick. I don't know what I have but I'm pretty sure it's not the swine flu. I don't have a fever, just stomach stuff. Oddly enough, I think my phobia has caused me to develop superhuman powers. I have literally willed away my ability to throw up. Although this may sound like a dream come true for me, it can actually be a curse.

I can't physically sleep anymore, my head hurts from laying in bed all day, and something I didn't think possible happened: I am sick to death of the games on my iPhone. I don't have a good book to read, which is just criminal when you're sick in bed. I don't have anything to watch, either. I tried watching the new New Moon trailer on YouTube but apparently 3 x 4 inch screens don't make for great video viewing. I am feeling very cut off from the outside world so this is my attempt to communicate with it, even if it's one-sided.

So I'm wishing I had something to entertain me while simultaneously speeding up the process of recovery. Don't they have an app for that?

Luna Nueva

I guess one more post about the New Moon tickets is in order. I was so ready to be done with the whole thing once I bought the tickets that I forgot to tell people how to get them. I am not going to have a set time for people to come get the tickets. Any time between now and November 18th, feel free to come by my house and pick them up. (Just call or email me first to make sure I'm home.)

For those who are interested, the final total of tickets we bought was 302!! I'll let you do the math to figure out just how much money we walked into Fairchild holding. A little bit scary. And don't worry about being squished into the theater like sardines. They gave us two theaters, and with only 302 people to fill them, no one should have to be in the break-neck rows.

Only one month to go! Disregard my countdown, that was taken from Stephenie Meyer's website for all the losers who have to wait until the 20th to see it! 29 days, baby!

Hooker Boots, iPhones, and Swine Flu, Oh My!

Don't die of shock, but I'm going to blog about something other than New Moon movie tickets. Now that they are in my possession I can start living my life again. It's weird to think about something other than money, tickets, email addresses, money, New Moon, deadlines, and money. I'm trying to remember what I did and thought about before taking this on.

So what else have I been up to?

--Taking a Love & Logic class at my kids' school, every Tuesday night. You know, in the hopes of becoming a better parent. Turns out the classes won't help you unless you actually try the techniques at home. Go figure.

--Joined a new club. The iPhone club. You can easily recognize the members by the rectangular object permanently affixed to one hand. Other characteristics are: Failure to engage in social conversation and obnoxious offers to provide any information someone may or may not need on the spot. Yeah, I'm "that" person now. Although I try very hard not to be. Okay, I don't really.

--Swine flu, swine flu here and there. Swine flu, swine flu everywhere. It is TAKING OVER THE WORLD. And despite my insistence that it would never infiltrate our home, it has happened. Well, I don't know for sure, Payson was not actually tested, but I'd bet my signed copy of Twilight that he has it, and Bill too. So far Macy and I have managed to avoid the filthy disease of pigs, but basically I am just biding my time and swabbing my inner nostrils with salt water. Oh yeah, I seriously just said that.

--I bought my first pair of hooker boots that I am insanely excited about. I got them on Thursday and I was seriously considering wearing a skirt and blouse on Friday as I collected money just so I could wear them. But I figured a steady stream of people coming to my house with wads of cash already looked sketchy enough to my neighbors, without adding hooker boots to the mix.

And that's basically it, summed up. It's good to be back.

Just wanted to put it out there that I am home, I will be home all day, you can bring me money any time between now and 6:30. The sooner the better, to relieve some of my stress!

Monday, October 12, 2009


Finally, Fairchild has given the go-ahead to get the tickets! They have also chosen a time for the screening: 6:15 pm. They want everyone in their seats by 6:00, they are closing the doors at 6:00 on the dot, no exceptions. You can arrive at the theater whatever time you want to get in line. (As long as it's not before me ;)

So, in order to retain my sanity and avoid complete and utter mayhem, this is what I have decided as far as collecting money goes:

  • I will accept CASH ONLY.
  • If you do not have the money to me by Friday at 11:00 am, you will not get a ticket. I will not be purchasing ANY tickets that I do not have money for.
  • You can bring me the money at the following times that I will for sure be home:
- Tuesday morning between 9:00 and noon.
- Wednesday night between 6:00 and 9:00.
- Thursday afternoon between 3:30 and 6:30.


If you claimed more than one ticket, I am leaving it up to you
to make sure this information gets to your other people.

If I have your email address, I will be emailing you my home address.
If not, email me for my address.

Thank you for your patience and accommodations in helping make this go as
smoothly as possible!

Final List

*I have made the changes that were mentioned. Thanks all!

Okay, I am officially not taking any more requests for tickets. If I told any more people yes, some of us would end up in another theater, and nobody wants that. I am STILL not collecting money yet, because I am STILL waiting to get the go ahead from Fairchild and trying not to lose patience in the meantime. Thank you for being patient with me. Hopefully I will have answers soon. Below is the list of names and number of tickets. (Forgive any misspellings of names.) PLEASE let me know if I have omitted anyone or have your number wrong. If you have NOT emailed me or left your email address on my blog PLEASE do so. It will make future updates and especially collecting money a whole lot easier for me if I have everyone's email address. Thanks!

Yet Another Update

Okay. Still waiting on Fairchild,
who is still waiting on Summit.
But they (managers at Fairchild) have PROMISED,
sworn up and down
that this will ABSOLUTELY happen.

We have almost filled up an entire theater.
I will take up to 30 more tickets, give or take a few.
Then you are on your own to start a new group.

Still not collecting money yet,
until I have the official okay from Fairchild.
Sit tight, be patient, stay tuned.
And let me know if you want any of those last 30 tickets.

(email me if you have any questions.)
