I had another group therapy session yesterday, I've had a few of them I just never mention them. I promised myself I would go with an open mind and I did. I do like them, some of it is silly but it's nice to talk to other people about things and we have conversations. Yesterday the normal female counselor wasn't there and the director of the program filled in for her. OMG I did not like her! She starts out with 'how are you today? I just want to let you know that you are not alone with your depression and the first step in helping yourself is to know that you are not abnormal.' Um, what?! All of us in the group know we aren't alone, yeah some people do think that but none of us do! Plus, she could have said it a bit less condescending! We aren't babies! I'm the youngest one there! Somebody mentioned that they went to church despite feeling bad and she said 'well there you go, why don't all of you go to your place of worship each week?'. A woman asked 'well what about if you're atheist or agnostic?'
She replied with 'well I can't say that you should find religion but you should find a spiritual connection within yourself because that will help with depression.</i> Um, she was kinda...yeah myself as well as that woman were kinda offended. Whatever, she said some other stuff. Next time I go there I plan on mentioning it to the normal lady (Julie) who's cool.
I'm getting everything settled for New York. I called my timeshare company yesterday who helped me find some hotels, their sister company RCI had nothing available. I found a few hotels that were okay so I'll be reserving a room today for two..weaselses and I. Then at the same time I'll get my plane ticket, it'll be $10 cheaper if I get the tickets through them, it will be Delta and not JetBlue. Oh well, not big deal. I have ridden Delta and I do know their seats are wide. Anybody ridden JetBlue? If so, how wide are their seats? Ugh, I hate my arse, it makes me so damn self conscience :(
So after all that I will be calling the Gershwin Theater to find out about any tickets for Wicked for the 10th or 11th $120 or under for any seats. It would suck if Lesley sees it for the first time in Upper Mezz but you can from there...I will just bring my binoculars (Lesley, bring a pair if you have them!). I would prefer lodge or lower mezz but those are more in the $140 range and they are probably sold out, I'm realistic ;)
If I can't get tickets for the 10th or 11 I'll ask about the 9th...if I can't get any for that I'll cry a little..not so much for me but for her because I love to spread the joy of this musical. It'll be coming her next year for nearly a year and I plan on seeing it a crap load of times so I have nothing to worry about! So if we can't get tickets I'll have to look into other shows. I just hope we get tickets for the 10th or 11th and not the 9th because we will both be tired, her from a 4-5 hour drive (traffic and such) and me from running around LAX and JFK and the 5 hour flight! Eeek! Heh, maybe we'll nap if we see it that night. I can just see it now. We meet at the hotel and go up to the room and nap. No proper greetings until after the musical...I guess we would grab a bite to eat before the show. Hee. Then I'll be so hyper and wired from the travel (I love planes!) and from the musical that I'll be bouncing! I'm very predictable, poor Lesley will want to commit murder by the end of the night *snickers*
Okay I just went off and completely babbled didn't I? If I were talking out loud I would be talking really fast :)
I'm done! Be glad this wasn't a phone post, you would have not understood a word I said :D
