I love watching Ellen. Nathan surprised me by getting 2 tickets to a taping. That taping was today. I had invited my friend, Rachel, to go with me. We've been excited about it ever since. Today was the day. We left about 6:15am and drove to Burbank. Of course with morning traffic we didn't get there until 8:30am, which we thought would be fine since the gate where the line begins wasn't supposed to open until 8:30. Well, I should have known better, but there was already a line by the time we got there. We were hopeful and continued to wait until 11:00 when they started handing out the tickets. (its first come first served and they overbook) We were told all the tickets for the audience were gone and we were still hopeful for the Riff Raff room. We were about 20-30 people away when they announced that even the Riff Raff room was full. Oh, well. Maybe next time.

We still had a great day hanging out. We went to lunch, did a little shopping and I got a lot done around the house after being gone for 2 weeks.

Small world

I have been on many planes in the last two weeks. One trip to MD was planned to visit my sister. The other trip was unplanned to attend my grandma's funeral in MN. JetBlue to MD was a positive experience. (as always) They told me I was their favorite customer and that I look good in leather. They even gave us a little kit since we were on the Redeye flight with lip balm, lotion, earplugs and an eye mask (that eye mask came in extremely handy later in my trip) My trip to MN was uneventful. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in MN. My flight from MN to Denver again uneventful. However, snow in Denver caused my flight to be delayed. I used the restroom (Denver's restrooms are nice and clean and actually smell good, by the way) I passed someone I recognized by sink. As I was walking away, I figured out it was one of the neurosurgeons from my hospital. I walk to my gate, discover my flight is delayed, and notice that one of the few chairs available was next to this neurosurgeon. So, I go over and introduce myself and we had a nice conversation while waiting for our plane. It's a small, small world.

What is the big deal about Videogames.

I can't seem to get into playing video games. Give me a game of Sorry, Egyptian War or Go fish and I'm there. Every now and then I might get in the mood to play Mario brothers, but even that isn't very often. One of my other favorite games is PACMAN. I just added it to my personalized Google page and I could only play it for 10 minutes and now I'm bored of it. I just don't get it.
