At work, an email was sent out to all iTunes employees asking if anyone wanted a free ticket to the Red Hot Chili Peppers concert tonight in Oakland. It was very early -- the crack of 12:30 in the afternoon! -- but I called Forrest anyway to wake him up and ask him if he'd like to go to the concert for his birthday. His exact response was, "Fuck yeah!"
So I shot off a reply email, 3 minutes after it had been sent. I was hoping
that there would be enough tickets, and enough people who don't have their
email client checking once a minute
;), that there would still be tickets
available. I mentioned that it was Forrest's birthday in my email.
Lucky I did, too, because Matt (the guy with the tickets) said that although he was initially giving out only one ticket per person, he'd make an exception for my boyfriend's birthday. Sweet!
So, at 8:30 tonight Forrest and I will be at the Oakland Arena, listening to
Red Hot Chili Peppers in concert. Who ever said working for a big company was
