TIX!

So...we are on a two hour break here...and I'm checking on stuff...and going to begin getting my interim post ready...(which, as it happens, is this..)

Ticketing is going well...and it's just the wonderful Shawn & me today...which, as it turns out is better than if there were more people than us...My concentration is not as distracted by people talking, etc...so very many mistakes can happen...wrong tickets clipped to the wrong order form... forgeting to write down the Ticket Info on the ticket form and also on the Master Sheets and most important, making sure we mark off the seats as assigned on the BIG Master Map of the theatre Orchestra & Balcony...This is such a 'personal' event...so very many of the people have been coming for all of the 22 years we have been doing this...and, we all care about trying to take care of individual people's needs, you know?...Making sure they get to sit where they want, if possible...so it takes time to do this right, and hopefully both Shawn & myself didn't make a sh**load of mistakes!

We have to check everything and then double check everything...Shawn and I are not stuffing envelopes today...the 'guys' will do that on Friday & Saturday...we are seating all the packages for each performance and then have been doing all of my people for each performance...(Shawn had to go off to an appointment for a business thing so that's why I'm sneaking off to blogland--he will be back any moment...)

Later: So, Shawn returned and was pretty exhausted from his 'meeting'...(he is soooo busy with this Event---he is our Event Co-Ordinator--plus, meeting on another Event he is working on for the Make A Wish Foundation....a terrific organization, as many of you know, I'm sure...)...so he just stretched out on the floor for a moment or two before we went back to work...



Later, yet again: It turns out we DID have more help than just us! Hooray...Another person just appeared out of nowhere to help us! It was such a wonderful thing to have such a perfectionist helping us....Oh my, what a great help he was....I don't know what we would have done without this extra set of hands....well, not hands exactly....as you can see....such an amazing person, isn't he? Who knew?



And he was such an incredibly BIG BIG help...leafing through the ticket forms with his efficient paw-ways...straightening out a number of mistakes that Shawn and I had made...and then...he actually attempted to take the marker and correct a few things on the Master Map...What a special kitty Mr. Sweetie is... We couldn't have continued on without him...Bless his sweet dear dear heart...My little honey of a help-mate!

And then, there was this, too....Oh, My...this helped so that we could continue on and finish up for today...not a great photo I'm afraid, (too much sugar to see straight, I think), but I hope you can tell what this is anyway...it's pretty self explanitory, you know....Ohhhhhhh my Lordy, the sugar rush....


And, in case you can't read it...these are called: "Outrageous No Nuts Brownies"! Perfect, isn't it! Going to relax for a bit now....

....More to come, as always....

WOW!! Sounds like you have been staying very busy! At least you have had some feline help. Snuggles & purrs are the best!

Did you have to do a lot of training to get Sweetie so helpful or is he just that way naturally?

Naomi, that Chris Bliss is absolutely amazing! I have never seen anything like it either. He is so musical and rhythmic along with being so darn good!

Glad you had a helper for your ticketing. My babies like to push papers around too...LOL

Sweetie is just lovely! His fur is soooooo white and sooooo fluffy!

Thanks so much for the Sonny link!
Great!

Seems a lot of work. Sometimes it would be nice to have a lot of help but come to think of it in the long run, it gives you more work because after they've done their work, you'll have to check it out if things are OK. Might as well do it with less people.

I have several of those kinds of helpers. Clover just did a rendition of "We Are The Champions" at the top of her lungs. Yes, a singing cat. Our ragdolls try to help but they are primarily paper weights.

What is it with cats?

Everytime I have paper out they have to lay on it.

It's creepy I tell you.

I'm not much of a cat-fan but that is one beautiful cat you have, Naomi. I have some doubt as to how much he helped the two of you work tho...

I'm so looking forward to S.T.A.G.E. in a few weeks. I'm just sorry that you can't be there on the stage with Betty getting the accolades you deserve.

I wonder if any of your blogging posse will be there. It seems like a lot of them are from England. Why not charter a plane, guys, and come see the best show in town?

fridayschild--Yes! This is the first year it's just been Shawn & me...and it was for me, the BEST way, ever! Plus...not a lot of personality clashes and ego trips...(this is a great group of producers but, very much like a dysfunctional family...LOL! So this was wonderful...especialy with that Extra help from Sweetie...

Dan--I love that cats do that--it says to me, they want to be right in the middle of what is important to you! Smart little honeybuns, aren't they?

Utenzi--Oh utenzi, they are WONDERFUL friends to have...if you ever do live with a cat, you'll wonder how you ever lived without them! I was a cinvert about 40 years ago...and sooooo happy that happened for me...

mar--Thank you, dear mar...I thought it sooooo wonderful I had to share it! And yes, my dear Sweetie is The Best Cat, ever!!! And sooooo very helpful, too...as well as beautiful...what more could you ask of a four-footed friend. (lol)

danny--Oh thank you Dear Danny...I wish I could be there, too--you have no idea how much I wish I could be there...V-E-R-Y hard to not be able to be there...and this was a year, I probably would ave sung, too! Oh well...
Love the idea of all the people across the pond chartering a plane...(lol) I wish some of the people in the area would come...It's hard to tell people how GREAT this show always is, you know? They have to see it to realize it, and then..it's funny...they say to me...Do You KNOW How Great This Show Is???? YEAH! Like, I do! (lol) I thank you Danny for your kind caring words...!

What a beautiful "Sweetie!" Cute page of his own too. I'll have to post a picture of my Mickey someday soon. He has a penchant for chasing his tail like a dog, and squeezing his 15+ pounds into the tiniest boxes he can find.

You have been keeping busy and getting things done! So sweet of Sweetie to help out with things. I'm sure he was very helpful indeed! I didn't know he had a site until today! How neat. He is such a lovely dear cat!! Give him a kiss for me please!

What an adorable little helper! I have those kinds of helpers too. I have Shower and Toilet Monitors, Food quality Control, REdishwashers, clothesirons (so they leave a few furz...at least the clothes are warm and flat)Scrap scrapers, floorlickers and bedwarmers (My favorite) It's like running a full time staff around this household.
