Saturday was my friend's son's 1st birthday party. Holy crap it was hot at the park. But it was a lot of fun watching the little kids run around and what not. More than twice I was asked when I'd be having kids. More than twice I asked "When am I going to find a man worthy enough." It got them to shut up, but a few of the well meaning grandmothers wanted to set me up with their grandsons. Thanks. That's nice of you. I told them to send them to the church to talk to me. lol I'm totally rolling with this. I'm not taking anything seriously. I just give up. It happens, it happens. If it doesn't, then it doesn't.

Today there was a picnic with my mom's side of the family. This time we didn't have to drive 30 miles away as we went to a park about 5 miles from where we live. The rest of the family had to drive to us for a change!

It was an okay time...about as okay a time as I have with this part of the family. Plus I suddenly got a tooth ache. Took 2 extra strength advil. that did nothing but knock me out for 90 mins to 2 hours. Ate some food, then took a ibuprofen. That didn't didn't help much either. I won't have the money to go to the dentist until the beginning of November, and chances are I'll have to have a root canal. I hope that's what needs to be done to fix this problem until I can get the rest of the work done that I know I need.

In other news, my niece Jasmine turns 17 on Friday. I mentioned that Blue Man Group was playing at the Hollywood Bowl on Friday and Saturday and she was all excited and asked if I could get tickets. I thought hey...that's the weekend before my birthday, so why not kill 2 birthday events at 1 time. So I buy the tickets for the concert ON her birthday, then send her the text message about it. All I got in response was ok. wow. calm down Jasmine! Don't be so excited. It's just Blue Man Group.

This is exactly why I don't do stuff for her. Where's the excitement? Where's the "Thank you auntie!" SOMETHING! I'm also going to buy us something to eat there (just something to snack on), unless she gets money from her mom/dad to spend.

Fuck...I didn't have to do anything for her birthday since I got her the gift card to buy herself new shoes for school (that at least got me a thank you). And I know, giving gifts shouldn't be done to get something in return, but an acknowledgment would be nice.

Anyway. Back to school tomorrow. I hope this week goes by fast. I know tomorrow will as it's my short day. Finished with classes by 11 am.

I need to finish washing. I don't want to be up late tonight.

So I didn't win the tickets to the Hollywood Bowl like I mentioned earlier (DW/LJ/IJ).

The winner was announced today.

bah.

I'm not going to bother to look up ticket prices, again, for the shows I wanted to see. I'll concentrate on trying to go to more baseball games before the season ends (I've only been to 1 game this season!)

eeps

cross your fingers folks!

I entered another contest through Transit TV LA and got an email that my answer was correct (Maryland's nickname is "The Old Line State") and I was entered in the pool of correct answers to win tickets to the Hollywood Bowl! This time for 4 tickets! Around this time last year I won 2 tickets to the Hollywood Bowl and my mom and I went for my birthday to see Igudesman & Joo (& More). I posted video of artists DW | LJ | IJ but apparently never did a follow up post. oops But I did have a nice time with my mom. We took a bus there and back so we wouldn't have to drive/pay for parking, our seats were good and it was nice to do something with my mom without dealing with my dad or other people.

Anyway, this time around 4 tickets are up for grabs if I win. There are so many shows I'd like to see but won't be able to due to lack of money.

CHICAGO: THE MUSICAL July 26, 27 and 28
TONY BENNETT August 2
DIANA ROSS August 3
AN EVENING WITH WILLIE NELSON & FAMILY • LYLE LOVETT & HIS LARGE BAND August 9 and 10
TCHAIKOVSKY SPECTACULAR WITH FIREWORKS August 16 and 17 (one of my favorite composers)
JOHN WILLIAMS: MAESTRO OF THE MOVIES August 30 and 31
BLUE MAN GROUP September 6 and 7 (Sept. 6 is my niece's birthday and I don't know that if she'd have anything planned with her church/school friends but it's the thought that counts, right? Also, Lora said that she wanted to see them and I mentioned that they were going to be at the Bowl, but she said she didn't want to pay $30 for a ticket *shrugs* her choice, but that's a good price considering tickets in Vegas are twice that much!)
SING-A-LONG SOUND OF MUSIC September 21

That's pretty much all the shows I'd want to see from now until September. I haven't looked beyond that because the tickets/passes are only good until a certain date. I may not even be able to pick any of those shows because of date restrictions, but those are my wishes.

So yeah...I find out on Monday via email and tweet if I've won, and about a week or so after that, the passes are mailed out.

I'm getting ready to go to the Hollywood Bowl to see Igudesman & Joo (& More)

no telling what they'll do tonight, though.

But now...I must be off! Have to go to Subway before meeting the bus at the Green Line in 45 minutes!

Pictures to come!!

woo hoo!

After getting lost for about 10 minutes, my mom and I made it to the Hollywood Bowl! I went to the ticket booth, gave my voucher, then crossed my fingers that the concert I wanted was still available...AND IT WAS!

the image might show up super big (well it is for me) but I re-sized it to 512 x 384, so I don't know why it's showing up in it's original size.
2 tickets )

I also need to re-check the directions I got because somehow I missed a freeway and that's how my mom and I got lost.

I'm so excited! my first time to the Hollywood Bowl and it'll be a great way to start off my 30th birthday

yeah!

1. Scott has absolutely RUINED Cahuenga Blvd for me! I giggle every time it comes up in directions.

2. Got my 2 complimentary reserved bench seats tickets for the Hollywood Bowl! it was my prize from the Transit TV game I played! (also got some earbuds, which I really needed!) Now trying to decide on a Tuesday or Thursday my mom and I can go. We have to use the tickets before September 11. Since we're bound by dates to choose from (September 4, 6, 11 are the only dates we can pick), my mom and I decided on September 6. Igudesman & Joo (& More) is the concert. From the video clip I looked at, it looks like it'll be fun.

3. bought the supplies my cousin will need to do my hair on the 4th. I had to go to 2 beauty supply stores to find it. UGH but it's all purchased and waiting. Sunday night I'll wash my hair.

4. No work on Monday! will probably spend the day packing (if only to shut my dad up)

5. I really need to ask my sister about staying with her while my parents are on vacation and the apartment is being renovated.

I believe that's all. I need to find out when we're leaving to get the Hollywood Bowl tickets. I rather do it now than wait until Wednesday and have everything sold out and not be able to go.
