How did you get into the Tribute?!?! Lucky girl!!! You mentioned
that the other ladies thought that Johnny would introduce that movie, Ya I thought that tooo...glad you followed their lead....



What happened is that one of the Zoners had invited a friend to go. That friend declined and the ticket was offered to me. That's how I ended up with a Tribute ticket.

I may have failed to mention getting on my hands and knees in front of Grauman's.


Yes, that might have enlightened them a tad too much! Honestly.....I can't believe we did that either. If I had been alone, no way would I have done that, but with a group of like-minded women..........all things are possible!


I was showing my DH the pics tonight. And he saw me in the hand and footprints. I hadn't really thought about how obsessive it was until I felt him looking at them. All he said was, "It looks like you all had a really good time." That's diplomatic. :lol:

Miss you guys already... although I have to say, I shared our weekend (well, the highlights anyway) at a work meeting, when I finished there was dead silence. Then someone said, "OK, anyone, try to top that." Major laughter.

More than a giggle...it's a crack up :biglaugh:
What a great weekend we had, and we miss you too! :bawl:
Your co-workers are right...this one will be hard to top! I'm wondering how I'm ever going to top seeing Johnny for so long , sitting right in front of me :-O :cloud9: ! I'll never be the same again! :cloud9:

Liz, DITHOT, DB, Gypsylee, Luvdepp, DepplySmitten, KYWoman I hope I didn't leave anyone out... :blush: Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, for sharing your experience with us. I'm so absorbed in your stories, I can't get enough, and now I want to see the Libertine even more than before, if that's possible. :giddy: Liz I do wish that Schickel guy would have give Johnny an opportunity to talk about DM, talk about a missed opportunity. :-/

Lizbaba and DITHOTbaba, I can't wait for the play discussion to start, I haven't been able to read the tidbits you've been posting, hope to catch up this weekend. I hope that not diligently doing my homework, *believe me I'm not trying to be a bad student*, won't interfere to much when it comes time to step up and represent. :lol:

Gypsylee -

I'm with you - I haven't gotten a THING done today. I have Johnny on the brain & it's sure hard to focus on anything else.

Dharma Bum , wish I could have met you in line. Maybe next time?

Take care ladies!

Boobaba, I think that we Zoners should be given a chance to interview him. We would do right by him.

My gosh, it seems like you ladies had such a great time! Sorry i'm so late in commenting on this (been busy with school) but I guess better late than never!

I love how most of the thread is centered around Johnny's shoe size (wonder why? :-? lol). I've read all the different threads and you all seemed to have a GREAT time there, watching Johnny right in front of you, and watching The Libertine. It'll be an experience to remember, that's for sure! Congratulations!

One question: Anyone know if the Canadian and American shoe sizes are the same? I think my dad takes a 12, and one of my guy friends at school (he's 14 years old) takes a size 13. I think the sizes are different up here though, but I was just wondering, with all this talk of shoe sizes :eyebrow:

Again, congratulations, and thank you all for sharing your experience with us! :cool: It makes it seem more real to me somehow.

Stuck in that moment of time, DS? I advise you stay there, as long as possible -- and only come off of Cloud 9 to share any tidbits with us that you may have remembered spontaneously ... :sigh: It sounds like you had a beyond heavenly time - congrats and all my best wishes to you for getting that awesome seat :cool:

Ladies -- Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing all these reports ! I'm so happy that ya'll went and got to meet with each other, had a great weekend, saw Johnny, etc. You deserve it so much, and I can't wait to read the other tidbit thread I see floating around the ONBC waiting for me :omg:

US and Canadian shoe sizes are the same. Here's a link, just fyi, to a table that shows comparable shoe sizes from around the world. Just scroll down for the chart:
