So Thursday evening is my 10-year high school reunion back home on the island. After debating about it for about a week, I decided that I would go with three of my girlfriends – leave the boyfriends/husbands at home. I’m actually really looking forward to it now. Even if it’s just at a local pub, it will be nice to see so many familiar faces and see what people are up to.
I don’t really have a budget, but I’m thinking it will probably set me back $60-70? Dinner and drinks ($25), and then $45 for the pub. A little pricey, but you only get one 10-year reunion! :)
Confession time. I just spent $98 on a ticket (after Ticketbastard fees) for the Michael Jackson Immortal World Tour Cirque du Soleil show that’s happening in November 2011. My friend had a pre-sale code, so we snagged the least expensive seats available (there were $65 tickets, but were sold out already). We both anticipate the show selling out immediately when the tickets are released for general sale.
I can afford it, but I didn’t need to go. Still, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience and I know I would be very disappointed if I missed out. And just to show that I do actually have will power when it comes to concerts, I will not be buying tickets to see the Backstreet Boys/New Kids on the Block upcoming tour. But only because I saw the Backstreet Boys live in concert 2 years ago. :) AND I didn’t even buy tickets to the Donavon Frankenreiter show that’s happening in November, even though I had such a blast at the show last year – including backstage passes and meeting the band.
Would you have spent $98 to see the Michael Jackson Cirque show?
Today is my 28th birthday. I’ve been quite busy lately, so it sorta just sort of snuck up on me. I don’t have anything planned – not going home, because I was just there over the long weekend … and it’s too late to plan something here in Vancouver. BF said he’s going to bake me a cake and cook a delicious dinner tonight, so I’m pretty excited about that. Mostly about the cake part, because he always cooks me delicious dinners. We’ll probably rent a movie and just keep it super low key. He’s also going to come watch my field hockey game on Saturday – it’ll be the first time he’s ever seen me play, so I hope I don’t embarrass myself!
We had originally wanted to do a day trip to Seattle to eat at a restaurant (Crab Pot) we’ve both been dying to check out and walk around the pier and the market. We went to Seattle last year for my birthday and had such a good time. But with the cost of gas, and a dinner out – it just got to be too expensive. The day would easily cost over $100, and we just came back from Hawaii so the expense can’t really be justified.
So I indulged and bought myself a birthday present instead. I spent $42.50 on two tickets to the Jeremy Fisher show in November. I feel a little guilty, but I know the concert will be worth it. :)
I can’t believe I’m already 28. Where does the time go!?
