The machine that is NSYNC does it again.

The day came when special time-sensitive PIN's were issued and many felt the thrill run through them when theirs arrived.

Special they said. Don't share them they said, at the risk of being eliminated they said. We kept our treasured PIN's secret and close at hand.

We watched the hours tick by as pre-sale tickets drew closer, and closer. We could taste them. Some of those specialer fans called 'Nsiders' were feeling elite. Were envisioning themselves in the $750.00 company of Celebrities.

Then the time came to take those special PINs and buy the dreams of a life time. For some it was the covetted $750.00 Platinum Ticket Package. Those who could even consider shelling out that much shivered with excitement. For others, the joy of getting into the events on a 2 Day Pass or at least into the Skills Challenge.
To get a glimpse of 'Them'.

We logged onto "Ticketbastardmaster" and offered up our PIN numbers like an offering to the GODS.

...Invalid. Not recognized. Does Not Exist...

Shock. Horror. Hopes dashed. I paid how much for Nsider priviledges for this bullshit?!? They sputter in horror.

Quick! Plan B: Use the FanClub generated PIN and grab what you can!

... ...

Okay, sorry, I won't go on. If I recall correctly, it seems this time last year there were similar glitches. When are they gonna get it right? *sigh*
Good luck to all those trying to purchase their tickets.
Congrats to those who got through unscathed.

<66 days to go>

babe, I didnt' know you were trying for the Platinum. I'm sorry you didn't get in.

But! you're still going right?

And I have a feeling they only release 50 of the Platinum today. (see my post)

The thought of going Platinum flashed for a nano-second through my mind when I saw the option staring me in the face but managed to control my impulses and went for the 2DayPass instead.
I am now the proud owner of a "TicketMaster Ticket Perchase Confirmation Number". So, darlin' I'M ON MY WAY TO MIAMI!!! wOOOhOOO! With hopes of hooking up with you and other LJ friends as often as possible throughout the week-end.

I'm hoping to make it to at least one party. Maybe if I bribe a bouncer. Another friend on LJ said that there might be an "NSider" party there? You hear anything about that?

whooo! yeah...heee...

*cough* sorry...

NSider party, yes. About two months ago they mentioned there would be one for NSider members. But we haven't had word since.

I'll let you know as soon as/if I know

D'oh! Did I fall off the planet or something? How come I missed that info?Oh, wait, I know why. Sadly my poor old iMac doesn't always let me load the NSYNC site and I don't look in the NSider as often as I'd like to.

If you wouldn't mind letting me know about anymore news I'd be much obliged.

I can't say I got through unscathed, but I do have the 3 2-day passes I needed to buy. I tried the ticketasshats site every 5 minutes for 3 hours, but I got them finally.

I'm not exhausted. I think I should be able to leave work now. I've had a very stressful morning.

::tosses shredded note pad paper::

Passes have been obtained. You're half way there.

If I was in charge where you are, I'd reward you with the rest of the day off!

teehee, I like your icon

I so wish you were in charge here. Next on the list, to hope that the Nsider party actually happens. And to finally decide with my roomies where we're staying. We have reservations one place, but I think we're moving and we're not sure where yet and it's so much fun and OMG, is it here YET???? EEEEEEE.

*deep breathe* ok, I'm a little excited about this.

and I really like my icon too. *g*

We're staying at the Roney-Palace. The price doesn't hurt so much if there's a bunch of you going in on the cost of the room.

Hey, girl. So far, a lot of people have been dissatisfied with the nsync fan club, but today they have redeemed themselves, seeing as their codes were the only ones that worked. They learned from last year. The real culprits are those at the NSIDER board, which has more members than JC's fan club. Although, those running his fan club are also running NSYNC's. So you have to wonder, what the hell happened?

The FanClub PIN worked for me too! (I was going to trash it when I got it because I had my 'NSider' one. Thank God I didn't!)

I hope they sort out the recognition problem or whatever it is that caused the hiccup.

How was your bus ride home cornichon?

SO COOL!!!! Fanclubbing paid off finally! HURRAH FOR YOU OMG I'm so excited for you.

Bus ride wasn't bad at all! In a wave of good luck, the airport shuttle bus came after about a minute, the Beeline 98 after a couple of minutes, and the No 3 Rd bus was waiting at Richmond Centre just for me. Awwww. Plus, I am so in love with my bus pass, words cannot express.

And then she yelled at me for not picking up the phone. Oh the irony!!

Glad that the fanclub pin worked for you at least. Oh, *nsync and your constantly ghetto management!! Why, why, WHY won't you let the fans run your business? We wouldn't paint you gold and stupid shit like that, we promise!

feels like i haven't talked to you for ages, dude. *snug*

Thanks so much! I've never seen an *NSYNC concert or any of their solo performances or been to CFTC before.
I hope it's all I'm imagining it to be.

*sigh* they're all so dreamy. :o)
