Book it

Much like the American Idol Kelly Clarkson, I am "Miss Independent." -That was a joke folks stick with me here.

Today I booked my hotel for the Chicago Amanda Palmer show. No I didn't book some prissy (ahem safe) Michigan Ave room. Nope two star nothside for me. The good side its literally one itty bitty mile from my concert and two blocks from Wrigley and at $125 the price tag was tre' chic. It doesn't look too bad so hopefully I wont return from my stay with a raging case of scabies. Now I just have to figure out how to take the bus/L from union station to get there. I shall figure that out later. Besides worst care scenario I can use my savings to splurge on a cab.

The other problem is the dad factor. Do I blatantly lie? Daddy dearest will be mental at the thought of his little bubble-headed princess navigating the city alone, staying in a hotel without a doorman and going to a concert where I think he figures (and rightfully so) I will be drunk beyond sensibility. Regardless of what he says I will go (for christ sake I'm 27) and the only person that would really suffer from such a disclosure is my saintly mother who will have to hear him suffer in 40 decibel "silence" all while calling local hospitals until 8am the next morning when my mother will finally lift the ban on calling me. So full disclosure is probably not the best idea for this situation, but I'm not very good about lying...especially to my parents...especially without getting caught :P I think the best tactic will be to spring it on them at the last minute. I'll think on it.

Aside from all this I'm very proud of myself. I'm excited, I'm going alone on a little adventure... now if I only knew how to dress goth so I could fit in with the concert goers.

    Sounds fun. I'm debating if I should meet Krissy for a concert just in Minneapolis next week - it's a monday night at starts at 9 - way past my bedtime esp. if it's snowing again. But I'm a hermit crab and you are a sea turtle. top

    Kristen go do it! You need to get out of the house! As much as i love sitting at home there really isnt much of a social sceen here. You have to go out and meet people and have fun so you can eventually con them into sitting at home with you...Also what the heck is the single girls fary tale pricess bubble? Anomymous I need more info :P top

    A princess without a prince? No friggin' way! lol

    Kristen, I second Ava on getting out of the house and conning people into hanging at your house. :)

    Ava, why are you choosing to stay in that particular hotel? Sounds like a not-so-good idea if you fear scabies (ew), telling your parents (uh oh), and you may end up taking a cab instead of the L ($$). I know its cool to be independent, but isn't it cooler to be scabie-free?

    (I'm only half-joking. I think you should look out for Ava. If you're certain you'll be fine, then I think you should tell your parents and give them a call when you get back to the hotel so they know you're safe.) top
