The "T" is silent

I've been thinking of things to do in New York and I've always wanted to go to a taping of The Daily Show. The problem is so does everyone else.

But Monday was the premiere of their new spinoff The Colbert Report and it seemed pretty entertaining, so I asked for tickets to that. I guess they don't have that big fan base yet because they've already replied with my ticket confirmation. I love Stephen Colbert but it feels a little like I couldn't get Yankees tickets so I went to see the Long Island Ducks play instead.

Dude, it's sooo easy to get into the Daily Show!!! As long as you have about two hours to kill, just go to the building and get in line. The tickets are free, but you want to get there early because they do run out, especially depending on how many people are in the "VIP" line that night. My boyfriend and I were stupid and actually paid for VIP tickets, and still got their early. We wasted our money because we still would've gotten in!! Bring an iPod or a magazine, some way to kill the time. Also, the building is in this totally obscure part of the city, and do not assume cab drivers know where it is. Have the exact address and some specifics about the neighborhood. You DEFINITELY should go to Daily Show instead of Colbert (although I'll admit I'm not a Colbert fan).

Eileen! You should have told me that you wanted to go to the Daily Show-- my friend and I have an extra ticket for Tuesday, December 6...Do you wanna go?

What kind of question is that? It's not like I live around the corner. Sure, I'd love to go but I have a feeling that I'm not going to be in New York on December 6. Just call it a hunch.

Speaking of which, you still haven't come to Cincinnati...

Hey! I figured that a month and a half notice was enough to get you back to NYC...but okay, fair enough. I'll scrounge around for other events while you're in the city. Maybe we can meet up with the Olsen twins.

Don't worry, you will see me in Cincinnati in the near future! I'll talk to you about it soon. Wish your flag football team good luck from me.

ps: I know that you are a determined person (as evidenced by the Elvis Costello Declan autograph), but are you really going to go through your whole album collection?! That is an impressive endeavor. Good luck with that too :)
