Often times when I warn you I wont be posting much, I end posting much more. It's like Murphy's law or something. Truth be told I am super busy @ work and have had 2 11 hour days because of events...BUT posting becomes therapeutic to me & I end up doing it more, not less. Interessssting....
You know what else is therapeutic...a 100 Monkeys Show!!!!!!!
Thanks to @Jaymes805, I was promptly made aware that they're bringing their sweet asses back to LA on February 19th. Crazy as it is, I had just checked their website about 30 min before, and no new shows were posted! All of a sudden BANG, it was there. Looks as though Jackson is taking a mini-LA break between Baton Rouge & Vancouver. Lucky us :)
You best believe I bought our tix in a flash.....however later in the evening, much to my utter horror, I realized their were NO hotel rooms available in or around West Hollywood for that night. The cute little Ramada Plaza W. Hollywood where we usually try to stay (because of it's walking distance to the Viper Room/Roxy etc) was $235 not including taxes and fees. The most we ever paid was $150 and that was me being stupid with my credit card. Some of the more upscale hotels such as the Mondrian is going for $850! Jackson you're hawt...hawt as all hell, but I'm sorry...I can't drop that much to be within a block of the venue.
*Side note: This is all going on because of some stooooopid NBA allstars thing that weekend.
Yes, I hate basketball...esp when it interferes with stuff like THIS.
Soooo....at my wits end, I called this particular Comfort Inn (accross from a Best Western we once stayed at in a pinch) and the guy said he had one room left for $79....I'LLTAKE IT! It's in the heart of dirrty Hollywood near the Hollywood Bowl. About 3 100 Monkeys LA Concerts ago, we stayed in that area and spent $25 trying to get to W. Hollywood in a cab. The cab driver got stuck in some sort of crazy Hollywood Blvd Christmas Parade traffic and it took a good 25 minutes.
Long story short, it should only cost about $15 to get there. Believe me for us, it's worth it. We like to drink & NOT DRIVE.
Anyhoo, rumor has it those Borderline Phenomenal girls will be coming, as well as @ZAnyMouse, aka Zina...poor @TwiloveSue will be OUT OF TOWN. Booo, BUT she went to the last show I missed...so it evens out right? JK Sue, we'll miss you! Oh, and let us not forget @LuvsMeSumEdward might come too!
Woohoo! ES and I plan to have breakfast again at the place where we met David Slade...and do a little shopping/celeb stalking in W. Hollywood :) Hey, we went into Bristol Farms for "water" and ran into Kate Walsh from Greys/Private Practice!
Ok...I'm way to excited. I thought my birthday week/weekend was going to suck because work is soo busy, but this makes up for it!
P.S. IF Jackson has a break from the BD set, before heading to Vancouver, I can't help but wonder if Rob might too?!? SQUEEEEE! Rob stalk 2011!
