If It Wasn’t For Bad Luck…

To our regular readers, you might have noticed a void of posts lately.  Work and personal responsibilities have been incredibly busy; this has been the busiest February that I have had in my job.  On top of the increased workload, I am going to be gone for a week next week.  Work is taking me out to California.  Specifically, the Anaheim/Orange County area.   So the already busy, short month of February is even shorter with one week removed right off the top. 

I have work responsibilities the first two and a half days of my trip, then I am taking the next day and a half to do some sightseeing while I am out there.  If anyone has any suggestions for places to see or do, I am all ears.  I am excited about my trip out there.  Unfortunately my wife can’t go, so I am flying solo.  The furthest west I have been is San Antonio.  The longest I have been on airplane is just over 2 hours.   I am excited about going out there.  I haven’t really planned anything set in stone; I am trying to be care free and easy going.  It’s like, totally, L.A., so like, just go with the flow.

My original plan of seeing the Lakers or Clippers fell through since neither are going to be in town.  So I decided to see Conan O’Brien.  I signed up for tickets but never heard back.  As a back up plan, I signed up for tickets to see The Tonight Show.  I got those tickets.

Now, I am not a fan of Leno.  I prefer Letterman anytime.  But it is free, and it is The Tonight Show, and it is still going to be cool.

I logged on the computer last night to see who the guests would be.   I am going on Thursday (that is important).   Friday night Jay Leno has Jennifer Anniston.  Wednesday Conan has Anniston.  Conan’s guest on Thursday is awful; I didn’t even know who he was.  On Thursday, Jay Leno is going to be having Meredith Vieira on his show.  Thursday, Jennifer Anniston decides to take a break from late night talk to be a guest  with Ellen Degeneres.

Even if I were to get Conan tickets, I would still miss out on Anniston.  Either way, I am going to be within 24 hours of seeing Jennifer Anniston, to be in the same room with her.  Now, I am stuck with a washed up daytime TV host who couldn’t hostWho Wants to Be A Millionaireas good as Regis.

That is the way it goes.

    I guess this is a good time to rub it in your face that not only did I get to see Letterman, it was also his annual Christmas episode with Darlene Love. And it was awesome.

    You’ll have a good time. I’m sure you can find something fun to do. Maybe find a local BBQ restaurant (do they have BBQ in California?) and do an exotic BBQ Wednesday.

    Have fun.
