They ask you "what is your favorite part of letterman" we both said Top 10 and then I stammered about Joaquin Phoenix and was awkward but kept a smile on my face the whole time. We left no later than 9:45/9:50 (we were about 20th in line when we got there at 10 after 9) and they called at 10:30 by the time I got back to my apartment.

Good luck to all who try. Again, no trivia, kid just called and said I won tickets and to be at such and such at such and such time. Going to try to incorporate a try and meeting them as well, but not likely. Going up there again in about an hour and will post if my blackberry will allow but have yet to try interference from it.

they used to do standby by you showing up early in the morning and getting a different color ticket than everyone else and then having to stand in a line based on your order later in the day, and if they had room they'd let you in. not sure if that's how they still do it.

Oh well, looks like no luck for U2 being the sole guest today. According to the show's website, tonight's guest is Katie Couric (for those attending the early taping today).

Good Luck and be careful.

That's true - my friend's flight was cancelled but they've put him on a later flight.

Which reminds me, Headache you've got mail
