1. Got my ticket
2. Got the e-mail from Ticketmaster cancelling it and telling me to go to Will Call for a fresh one. Guess I panicked too early... only 27 hours before show time!
3. Getting my sore knee better in physio, but I'll be carrying an umbrella/cane and hoping it doesn't rain!
4. Is somebody willing to feed me tomorrow?
4. IUP: Where DID you get that wonderful cat?

PS The BN board was recommended to me by a phriend on the Playa del Carmen info board, whose name here is NJphinphan. She won't be in Chicago... just wishes!

NJPP is awesome!!! Pointed you to the right place!!!

I found the cat on google!

Good news about the tickets!!! :o I would have been scared too if I were you!

You'll certainly be fed...I don't know by who, but I'm sure there will be some phantastic spreads around the tailgating area!!! :D

Just got my beach sand, window paint, kiddie pool, string for the nametags, the grill packed, some propane and now we're pretty much all set!

SEE YOU ALL TOMORROW!!!
I was wondering... I've never gone by car before... if we cover the minivan in window paint, will we likely be pulled over on the expressway for no particular reason? We've got a 1.5 hour ride or so, and I'm sure our DD will be competent... tired, but competent. Driving the speed limit could hamper our travel time!
I can't say for sure, but I've seen lots of people on the road with paint all over their cars! 1.5 hours is far shorter a drive than I've done in the past and I've never had any problems...but that's just past experience...I'd hate to say you'd be fine, then I might jinx you! :D

(But I think you'll be fine!) :wink:

We're barely getting down to 80 at 4 a.m. here. :o
My god girl, it will be close to 90 degrees. An icewater coat maybe?

Oh I see, you mean the 62 part.....But that's hardly worth a light jacket....

Have fun tonight everyone - wish I could be there. One request of those that I made nametags for - send me pictures of the nametags (and any other tailgate/concert pictures) in action. I'll put them up on my website for the the BNers to see so they can see what they're missing. :P
