Ellen Tickets!

When we have visitors, I try to be budget conscious and have as many free things as possible on our "to do" agenda.  So when I heard that there was a new talk show with Bethenny Frankel as the host (formerly one of the New York Housewives) I requested 3 tickets for me and my girls, just in case they were interested.    I received a call from the show several weeks before the taping inquiring if I was still interested.  When I heard that we would have to wait in line for several hours and there was no guarantee that we would even see the show, I quickly declined.  But when the caller stated that those who don't get admitted to the show would be given two tickets to see Ellen, I quickly informed her that we would be there!  So keeping that information in mind, we arrived tastefully late . . . but not late enough.

You guessed it, we got in.  I was horrified as I had previewed the show the week before and well, to put it mildly, I was afraid my face would turn the color of my shirt due to the show's content.  Thankfully, I was seated behind Natalie and Allison so it wasn't too embarrassing (next to the bartender, but he didn't serve any drinks)  The worst part of the show was a demonstration of pole dancing- which turned out to be actually pretty funny.  

And the BEST part . . . we submitted our email addresses and every audience member is to receive two tickets to see Ellen this coming season (excluding her 12 days of giveaways).    That was in late June and I'm still waiting!!!
