I need to institute a "no buying online" policy while imbibing. That's how we ended up going to Chicago in January, and now it' s how I've bought myself a ticket to a concert that begins at 10:30pm. See, I'm always asleep at that hour and now I've committed myself to an event that BEGINS at that time. Really, what was I thinking? At least I've got a couple months to prepare so maybe I'll have a strategy worked out whereby I'll be able to stay awake for it. Anyway, I was listening to his music when I got the bright idea to see if he would be coming to town as part of the Jazz Festival, and lo and behold he was. Then when I checked for "best available" tickets and a seat in the back row came up, I panicked and bought it thinking they were nearly sold out.
Let's not even bring up the fact that I swore off concerts altogether already.
At least I didn't buy the dolphin swim at the same time. I was also checking out the activities available on the cruise we're doing in June. I have always wanted to swim with the dolphins, but have never done it because it's so darned expensive. So this trip, it's only available at Nassau and starts at $200. But Nassau also has this place called Atlantis, which looks like a combination aquarium/amusement park/beach. So if you want the run of the place and swim with dolphins, it's $269. You only live once, I know, but that just seems like an obscene amount of money. Anyone been to Atlantis there? And any New Yorkers want to join us? It looks like you can go for less than $100 a day. June 9th, details here.
