International Incident
I think I just avoided creating a diplomatic stink with Russia. Or at least with a certain Senator of Ekatarinaburg.

I got the following email from Ticketmaster today regarding tickets I purchased over the weekend for the Harry Connick Jr. show in April (go ahead -- mock me - I like him).

"Dear Ticketmaster Customer,

Thank you for your recent purchase at Ticketmaster.

Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to mail the tickets to the international address that you provided."

WTF?? So I log onto Ticketmaster to check my order, and lo and behold, I had inadvertently used the credit card I had linked to my account the last time I bought tickets on line. That card belonged to a Russian politician who was visiting as part of an exchange program I was hosting, and he insisted on going to the Raven's game while he was here. Long time readers will affectionately recall my dealings with Veektor, the hapless Senator from Ekatarinaburg last October.

I just hope I cancelled the order and removed Victor's VISA number from my account before he noticed the charge!

In other news, I have two awesome seats to the Harry Connick Jr. Concert.

    Hahaha... that's hilarious. You know, in a I-hope-that-never-happens-to-me kinda way. Hahaha.
