sydney show  
the sydney show sold out within seconds, literally. both the ticketek website and the sydney opera house website were crashing and bringing up no results, i couldn't get through on the phones, it was crazy. i was a wreck on the phone to darling snowcanwait and oh, thankyou so much for putting up with me hon!! but miraculously:

i got a ticket. stalls, row N, on the left-hand side.

this is good. except:
i got a ticket.

i was meant to get 3.

i think fabuleuxamelie and jadey_mcshadey are going to kill me. i feel so horrible & wretched and selfish.
i'm so sorry. i didn't know what to do.
i already have my plane ticket to sydney.
if i hadn't had that, i wouldn't have brought the ticket.
but i can't get a refund on it, plus i have a connecting flight to brisbane a few days later from sydney.

oh, this is such a mess. i'm excited to get a ticket but i feel like the worst fucking selfish friend in the world.
i'm bidding on ebay for 2 more tickets, but i'm sure they will end up going for a lot of money and i'm not paying anymore than i would on ticketek. i don't believe people should be making money buying tickets and reselling them to fans, even though people would be willing to pay it.
argh. amy and jade... i'm so, so sorry. please feel free to yell at me and tell me i'm so selfish. i invited you both to come with me, and then couldn't get you tickets. oh.

it's kinda hard to be excited about my seat at this point.

i have to go to work now. i think it will be good to think about something else for awhile.
please yell at me and stuff. i deserve it, i'm just so, so sorry.

never fear - i don't know what it's going to cost you, but around here there were a ton of tix being sold on eBay and a place called atforumz (?). I KNOW it's really sketchy and frustrating to depend on those options, but you WILL be able to find other tix. in the states ticketmaster (bastard) released 50 extra tickets two days before the show. and there will always be scalpers outside the venue. not the most reasuring options, but they are out there.

this is the part of show going i ABHOR! but after last night, i can tell you with every fiber in my body, she's worth it!

good luck, sweetie!

I hope you have fun at the shows!

You know... I never knew about that other Fiona Apple album until you mentioned it. I followed the link, but the music isn't available anymore. I'll look around a little more... but, thanks for that piece of info! :)
