Oh, Happy Day
Oh, happy day. It's October, it's still warm out and after three days of exercise, my back is actually starting to feel better. No more shooting pain! Whoo ha!
Even better is that yesterday I landed I ticket to the John Mayer Trio. At first I didn't think I was going to find one at a decent price, being that he's playing the Beacon and it seems to have been sold out since the beginning of time. But, no matter. I got on Craigslist, put up a posting that I was one girl who needed one ticket and decided to see what what would happen.
I ended up scoring a $45 orchestra seat from a guy I only knew over the e-mail as Mitchell. He told me to meet him on th Upper East Side later that night for the exhanging of currency for goods. We were supposed to meet at 7:00 PM, so I hopped the 6 train right after working out. As soon as I got off at 77th Street, I had a voice mail. Mitchell was going to be a half hour late. I realized I had to amuse myself. Luckily the UES has lots of shops.
Long story short, I ended up buying my very first pair of Citizen of Humanity jeans. I don't know why but I walked into Big Drop on 76th Street and said to the sales girl, "I need some new jeans but my thighs are huge and muscular because of all the running I do." She totally helped me out and it turned out that she went to Syracuse as well and finished the year after me. Small world.
So now I have a ticket to go see my favorite musician as well as I pair of hottie new jeans to wear to the show. Yes, I realize the John Mayer audience will be mostly women anyway, but who cares? They'll probably appreciates my Citizens more than a room full of guys, anyway.
Today's agenda: Finish author profile for The Job, eat hummus, decide between tap or jazz class for tonight.
