"Well, since Mom and Dad are paying for school, I'm just using the money I'd use to pay for school to pay for this AI concert"
I use that logic all the time. It's perfectly logical to me. Plus, it helps to explain away the two pairs of shoes in in two days thing I've got going these days.
That really sucks, wishiwasahunter
. I got eighth row floor right at 9 AM on Ticketmaster for the St. Paul, MN show, which is good enough. I'm not that tall (5'5") but I'm better off than my youngest sister, who is 16 and just barely 5 feet tall.
The sad thing is...I don't live in St. Paul. Or anywhere close to St. Paul. I live in Winnipeg, MB, Canada, an eight hour drive away. I was planning on taking a weekend trip to Minnesota anyway, so I figure, what the heck. The Mall of America couldn't possibly be a two day adventure. Plus, my younger sister (not the 16-year-old, the 18-year-old) is graduating this year and she wanted to go to the show so I bought her ticket as a grad gift. The youngest one isn't really into AI because she's never home as she trains six hours a day, and she only watched Nikko & Vonzell's performances, but she wanted to tag along. That's my story anyway.
The real reason is because I *heart* Nikko. The above stuff is all true, but that's the main reason I'm making the trip. I've never been to an AI show before, so can anyone tell me the exact level of cheese to expect? I do love my cheese.
I don't think the St. Paul show was selling really fast because I went back later on in the evening and there were still some pretty good lower level seats left. I've been to St. Paul before and it's not exactly a hotbed of activity, from what I can gather.
