Here's a fun idea... let's take a little break from the OC Transpo drama [which, by the way, has created my new record for comments on a single post!
It's official. I am going to the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver! Are you excited for me? I know I am!
The tickets basically sold out. There aren't too many left. I believe I'm able to purchase tickets to a Victory Ceremony [handing out the medals + concert] over the next 10 days, so I'll be trying for that at noon tomorrow when the buying for that begins.
What did I get? I'll be heading to Whistler to see runs 1 and 2 of the Mens Singles Luge [$34], then the next day in Vancouver I will be seeing Long Track Speed Skating, featuring the Ladies 3,000m final [$195], and then a Womens Hockey preliminary [$25]. Grand total of $299 spent on tickets + fees.
I had planned to spend up to $1032, but they didn't give me tickets for Ski Jumping, Biathlon or the Opening Ceremonies. I'll have to watch the ceremony on a big screen in a park instead. With hot chocolate I hope!
I am so damn excited! Just 428 days to go! I guess now I can put that $733 saved toward my flight. Eew. HAHA
