What I did on Friday the 13th.....

I love defying superstitions right in their faces.

I will sit in seat 13, I will walk under a ladder, I will pick up a piece of lava/pumice from the parking lot of Mount St. Helens.

I heard on the radio this morning that there will be 3 Friday the 13th's this year and they are 13 weeks apart from each other. Yippee!!

But I didn't really care because that night I went to see......... Merrill Auditorium in Portland, Maine at 8 PM.

And I went all by myself. (well, there were other people in the audience, but I didn't know them.)

The previous weekend I went online, found a decent SINGLE ticket and got it. Mr. Downeastdoingstuff was nice enough to think about me walking around, all alone, in the dark in the big city, so he actually drove me to the door and then later, picked me up!! Very, very nice.

That's the way he is.

All day long I could see the trucks parked in a parking lot near my school. Three big mother suckers.

My seat was in the Terrace section...not too bad!

Curtain call. (shhh, we were warned that taking photos was against the law. I don't think curtain call counts, do you?)

It was very enjoyable. BUT I didn't care for the guy that played Sam Carmichael.

Thinks he 'all that', ya think? There just was no chemistry between him (gag) and the leading lady. at. all.

Who would pose for a photo like that? I don't think it's at all sexy or anything.

Take a breath already.

Here's who played Sam Carmichael in the movie...Pierce Brosnan aka James Bond.
You decide....

But, other than that, it was great fun. I still think I like the Movie better. Being in actual Greece with the aqua water and all that, well, I like that better.

My program. (Black and white? Run out of ink in the color cartridge?)

I'm still singing....ahhh....

Did I tell you she's still singin'? Thought that the ticket would get those songs out of her head for a few days. Not so much!
btw I have this white shirt, ahh... that looks good all unbuttoned and ahh, I was wondering...
hahahahaha too funny!

Pierce wins, hands down. Although Birdman, driving you the theater and picking you up after is a close second! (Especially if he wore the white shirt!)

Well, now those songs will be stuck in *my* head today - but at least they are lively ones!

We had front row seats when it came to Rockford. I was in Heaven. I sang those Abba songs for the next week. Now they are going through my head again...Thanks
What a gem that Birdman is...

Good for you!! I don't think I have evah gone to a movie or a play or a show by myself. What a confident woman you are and I take it Birdman does not like this kind of thing? He enjoys being a limo driver more? Ha ha
