This Time, Persistence Pays

Each day for the past week, I have called the FSU ticket office, checking availability for the Feb. 25 Stephen King event. And every time I called, I was given a different story as to whether the event is sold out or not. I even checked the online box office for tickets, checking a minimum of six times daily.

This morning, my persistence paid off and I've scored a ticket for the event! Now, what to wear, what to wear. I wonder what he'll be wearing; when I saw him last time in NYC, he wore a t-shirt stating, "I make stuff up."

King of Horror Scheduled in Tallahassee

I attended the New Yorker Festival in Sept. 2005 with hopes of having a book signed by Stephen King. What the Festival organizers didn't tell me was that only 100 tickets were issued for the book signing.

And then, NPR gave me a second chance this morning. I learned that Stephen King was just added to the line up of incredible performers for the Seven Days of Opening Nights. Unfortunately, what I read online was that the tickets went on sale Feb. 14 and a friend who is connected to the event told me the tickets sold out in 15 minutes.

The disappointment flushed me. Again.

I was told they don't know when tickets will go on sale and instructed me to check back daily.

If anyone comes across two tickets for the Stephen King reading on Feb. 26, I know a Quirky Girl who could use 'em...

Celebrate the Little Man with a Big Ego

Tallahassee welcomes Napoleon: An Intimate Portrait to the Museum of Florida History, Feb. 6 - April 30, 2006. The exhibition features more than 250 personal personal possessions from his famous cocked military hat to a lock of Empress Josephine's hair (Ew! Gross!). In addition to the exhibit at the Museum of Florida History, different venues throughout town are celebrating the Emperor's arrival, too. From romantic readings of Napoleon's love letters to Josephine at the Knott House to hearth cooking classes at the Tallahassee Museum.

What's even cooler is that the Museum of Florida History will be open until 8:00 PM on Thursdays throughout the exhibition. Various entertainment is scheduled for each evening and food will be provided by area Tallahassee restaurants. Visit the exhibition site for the schedule of events.
