Serenity now...


..is always the first quote that comes to my mind when I think of "Seinfeld". We are avid Seinfeld watchers at my house, to say the least. I'm pretty sure Keith could quote just about every episode. So, for his birthday I surprised him with tickets to see Jerry Seinfeld's stand up act. Gotta be honest, Keith really didn't seem all that sure about it. I was looking for some big excitement over it so then I started to be unsure about whether or not we would have a good evening. Over all, it turned out to be a good night!
Before buying the tickets (or rather, paying my mom to do it so Keith wouldn't see the transaction! Thanks, Ma!) I Googled the show to see if anyone had said it was really crude. I'm not a fan of laughing at disgustingness and I know Keith would hate that. The reviews said it was a pretty tame show, so I figured we could handle it. It was actually even less crude than I thought it would be. And it was fairly funny! Definitely wasn't the same as the show, but worthwhile. My favorite part was that after the act, he came back out and answered some questions from the audience. I think I liked this because this wasn't just a routine and he really was funny even when he was answering these unplanned questions. Someone asked about a Seinfeld reunion and he said that could possibly happen awhile down the road. He said they'd probably wait until all 4 careers went down the toilet...I'm hoping he was just being funny and there is actually a Seinfeld reunion show one day.
BUT...wouldn't you know that out of the entire Abravanel Hall we would get stuck sitting next to the most ANNOYING laugher! It was AWFUL! I kept trying to reason with myself and say well at least she's enjoying herself, but it was honestly THE MOST obnoxious and LOUD laugh. Yes there was even a snort at one point. Her date wasn't much better, and they laughed this way at absolutely every joke there was. And they were the kind where they liked slapped their knees and rocked their torso back and forth.... The title of this post is not just in remembrance of my favorite Seinfeld quote. Let's just say I found myself thinking it a lot tonight :)

lol. troy and i have a running joke that we always get stuck bypeople like that... whether it is someone throughout a movie that yells out comments or whatever. That is awful! I feel for you. We would have been dying too.
Happy the show was a good turnout!
