In reality, I'm quite a bit more than "mildly annoyed," but I didn't think that it was appropriate to put my degree of annoyance in the thread title. I am supposed to be at the theatre right now for a show that starts in eight minutes. I went to the light rail station in plenty of time to get to the show. I ended up waiting 40 minutes, and during that time, three trains were supposed to come by, but zero trains actually showed up. When it got to the point that I wasn't going to make it on time, even if I got on a train immediately, I gave up and went home. So, I'm out $10.50 for the train fare and $69 for the theatre ticket.
I e-mailed the theatre subscription services, to see if I could get a replacement ticket for next week, because I'd like to see the show, but they won't refund me the unused ticket. If I do get a ticket for next week, I may end up driving to the show and paying the ridiculous parking charge. Either that, or maybe I'll try leaving a couple hours early to see if I can catch a train.
It's not hot, because it's only 86° outside, and thank goodness it's not ten degrees hotter. It was warm enough to use the AC in the car, although not warm enough for the AC to come on inside the house.
I need to go to the UPS store, but I am not in the mood to do anything other than taking Bernadette for her walk. I think I will wait until tomorrow, unless someone can give me a compelling reason to go tonight. This errand is a continuation of my tech support experience last week.
Chris and I are planning a trip to New York. Our dates are December 6 to 10 besides our flying days. So far we are thinking of seeing Almost Famous, Some Like it Hot, Death of a Salesman (London production with African American cast), and Leopoldstadt (Tom Stoppard's new play). And Merrily of course but I'm worried it will be sold out when tickets go on sale to the general public. Am I missing anything important? I considered Music Man and/or Funny Girl but I'm afraid those classics won't live up to my expectations and we have limited time and want to do some other stuff besides theater.
I am soooooo far behind on my packing. This is probably to be expected. I've made great headway but I have accumulated too much stuff. Most of it is paperwork which can be tossed. The trick, for me, is to stream a movie. Animated movies seem to work best. That way I can half pay attention to the movie so I'm not worrying about the move. And it is a way for me to tell how long something took. For instance, I might think the section I'm working on took over an hour when, by looking at the movie's progress, it only took 35 minutes. That is a great moral booster.
