It All Ends Here

So. I've been waiting for a couple of months to hear about Harry Potter 7 tickets going on sale. I signed up for a cool text alert to ket me know when my favorite theater had them ready for me to buy!! Well, today was the day!! I got a text at about 1:15 saying Larry Miller Theaters were selling now!

I scurried to my computer and brought up Thanksgiving Point's Megaplex web page. HP. What about all the other LHM theater complexes? Check. All up and running! Cool. I don't want to go to any other theaters. I like Thanksgiving Point. It's in my comfort zone. I really like reserved seating--I can get there about 20 minutes pre-movie and be just peaches!! Don't have to leave my kids for hours to stand in line--don't have to leave my kids to stand in line for hours........ha. That was only partly a joke......

Anyway! Back to my story...... So I called the theater to see what the problem was: Very nice man told me they were having problems and it should be up for sale within a couple of hours.

So I was patient. I waited. Checking back every so often to see if they were ready.

Flash forward 2 hours......5 minutes before I am to pick Cameron up from pre-school. (they really frown on lateness down at the rec-center....charge you money and everything.....)

Tickets. Are. On. Sale.

Holy cow!! I think I can make it quick before I leave to pick him up!!!!

I hurriedly type in my credit card info: 7735 8429.......wait a minute.....that part's boring. You don't need to know that.....

OOhhh!!! I get my pick of the theater!! How lucky am I??!?? I quickly select the best seats in the house!! The row behind the disabled area where you can put your feet up on the bar in front of you without disturbing anyone's head!!

"Click to confirm sale" it says....


Nothing is happening.

Wait 10 seconds.

CLICK!!!! I'm in a total hurry!!!! Why won't it confirm??!?

Wait 20 more seconds.

CLICK!!!CLICK!!CLICK!!!!!!!! What the heck is wrong with my mouse!!?!!!!!


Oh. There we go. Nice! We got the first seats!! I'm so excited!! Let me just print out my conformation........HUH??!? Seats 8-21 Row 'D'? That's not my row!! What the Heck??

**checking seat preview**

Oh. Um......It seems that I have just purchased 80% of the seats in the theater..........

So, long story short: I have approx. 80 more seats to sell from my original 98 extra seats. If any of you at all have the slightest desire to see the FABULOUS Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part One with 112 of the coolest people in Utah on NOVEMBER 18th at 11:59 P.M.

Trust me. If I don't get these $1200 worth of tickets sold it will all end here. With me. At my house. Jason will never let me forget it.

Have Mercy!! Please?

I'm checking with the rest of the fan-damily but we will likely take 4 of those off your hands. And, frankly, I love that you did this, Tammy. It is SOOOOO something I would have done too.

OH, MY GOSH! I feel really, REALLY bad. I do. I do. It's just that I can't stop laughing! Hahahahaha!

And I'm all over it. Can't think of anyone I'd rather see it with.

Peggy said...

Oo. And can I request one of the ones right behind the handicap seats where you can put your feet up on the bar? That sounds pretty heavenly.

Oh, Shauna! I'm dying!!! Both from hilarity and dread!! But I'll gladly sell you some tix!! Peggy--Let's just say you were already part of the original 14!!
