Wicked... and... Bruises... and Knitting. Oh My!

So my poor little body is all sore and bruised. I'm not entirely sure where the bruises on my arms came from... I must be getting old. Or maybe I need to eat more bananas. Don't they help with bruising?
The bruises all about my knees are from this weekend. I had a shoot with two very sweet labs. And when I have shoots, I like to get down on their level with the camera... and sometimes that means "walking" about on my knees. Not always... sometimes I shoot "from the hip" without looking through the viewfinder. But those can be hit or miss... so sometimes I get a bit bruised. Expecially when we are inside on wood floors!
Totally worth it though... I've been working on the photos and there are lots of cute ones that I really hope their pawrents like! You can see the sneak peek over at the Furrie Fotographie blog if you are interested.

Wicked is in town!! I want to see it soooooo bad!! I have read it, of course. And I have read the sequel, Son of a Witch. Chris got me the soundtrack from the musical last year too. My problem is that if I am going to pay a bunch of money to see a show, I want good seats. Even if that means paying a little bit more. Unfortunately, Wicked tickets (the good seats) are over $130!! EACH!
However...
I read in last friday's paper that they are doing a lottery. People will have the opportunity, 2 1/2 hours before each show, to put their name in a drawing. Ten names will be chosen and they can buy up to two tickets for $25 each!! And... this is the best part... they are the GOOD SEATS!
So I'm going today. And I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed. Because I can't justify spending $130+ on a ticket when we just got the house and there are so many things that need to be done.
I'll let you know if I get in! : )

And last... for the few of you who might be interested in my knitting stuff... I'm working on a sweater!

Mine is green though... and it might not look quite so "holey" because the photo is crochet and I'm knitting. But it's my first garment!
Yippee!

Oh i do hope you get seats for wicked. My husband got me tickets for my birthday 2 years ago. I got a bit upset at the money he spent because it is a lot but it's a great show!
That's great that you are going to a sweater next. Looking forward it.

I didn't get them last night so I'm trying again tonight!

I too hope you win the lottery. Theater tickets are expensive! I don't think I've ever seen a serious production of anything. I much prefer the smaller productions that are dirt cheap.

Since I'm already here commenting, I'll go ahead and say Clementine's "opossum" photo is adorable!

Oh, and it's potassium that helps with bruising, and I think bananas are high in potassium, so if you don't want to eat bananas: http://www.foodshighinpotassium.com/
