    Hello!
    I haven’t posted for a while but am still lurking about… Now I would like to ask this magnificent forum for a favour…
    I received an email telling me I have tickets for the recording on Friday 16th… which ordinarily would have me jumping up and down screaming for joy.
    Unfortunately, I have been told I have to work Friday night – with no chance of getting out of it whatsoever…
    SO… I have two tickets. Anybody want to swap with me? Please, pretty please, with sugar on? Any other date is fine.
    Anybody want to save the skin of an old-school Dwarfer?
    Thanks :)

    Danny – I may be able to do this, but I won’t know for a few more days.

    Bear with..!

    Yeah, once the dust has settled I’m sure someone will oblige. We’re still waiting for the dust to settle to see how many we have.

    I can do that Danny. My two are for Jan 20th.

    Hi guys.

    I’m in exactly the same position I’m afraid.

    We’re moving offices on the 16th – which would normally qualify as a day off.

    Unfortunately I work in IT, so will be knee deep in servers and network cables, trying to make sure it’s all working for Monday AM – whilst everyone else sods off for an early weekend.

    My boss turned a funny shade of purple when I broached the issue of taking the afternoon off.

    Have 2 tickets confirmed for Friday 16th – am prepared to swap for 2 tickets to any other date (preferably not the 23rd Dec, but can do it if necessary).

    If anyone can help I will love you forever. Unless you’re not into that, in which case I will quietly swap the tickets and leave you in peace.

    Paul, as I said above, I can swap my two 20th Jan tickets for two 16th Dec tickets. Since Kris got in there before me with danny f he has dibs on those, so we could swap? Although I guess for both swaps to happen and for everyone to happy Kris would need to confirm that he can indeed swap so we should just hold off ’til we hear from him again.

    Bob – that sounds great, I really appreciate it.

    I’ve just noticed that the e-ticket has my name on it – hoping this won’t be an issue on the night. I might check with LostinTV regarding ticket swapping. Presumably they’re not going to demand ID on the door, but you never know.

    Surely the point is you have a valid ticket.

    Failing that, some major research into each other’s lives Spaced-style may be in order…

    Every show I’ve been to see taped here in LA – to date that’s two episodes of The Late Late Show with Confidence and a pilot for BBC America hosted by Dave Gorman – they’ve checked the ID of the ticketholder. The rules may be different for LostinTV, mind. I’d suggest getting in touch wiv’m.

    I’ve never had ID checked at a UK TV recording.

    Guys,

    Asked Jay from LostinTV about procedure for swapping tickets, and just got this reply:

    Hi Paul,

    I’ve just checked this for you and it’s no problem, providing you notify us of the swap. We will be checking names on the night, so we just need to know to whom they’re being reallocated.

    Hope this helps.

    Best wishes,
    Jay

    So, I guess it’s fine to swap tickets, as long as we let them know in advance.

    Bob, if you’re happy to swap, I’ll email you mine across.

    Kris/DannyF, did you swap yours in the end?

    Paul

    Sorry guys, I’ll not be able to swap. Bit of a pisser, I managed to get to the first showing of VII, and the first recording of VIII… oh well. I can’t bitch – I’ve still going to see something being filmed!

    Sorry again

    No worries Kris.

    Danny – looks like you get first dibs on Bob’s tickets then.

    Ach, sorry Paul but since Danny got in first with his request I’m kinda obliged to swap with him. You good with that Danny F?

    I’ve been trying to get in touch with Danny but no luck. I really need to swap soon if I’m to make the arrangements in time, so Paul, I’m happy to swap as soon as possible.

    Bob – that’s definitely cool with me, do you have an email address I can send to?

    ARGH!!!

    I’m so sorry to diddle you about folks – I’ve been utterly sick as a dog – well, even sicker than a dog – and off the internet for over a week…

    Thanks for waiting as long as you did, Bob – I do understand your time constraints and appreciate you hanging about as long as you did. Well done Paul. ;)

    Is anybody else still able to swap?
    I think I may have to kill myself if I miss this.

    December 16th tickets X 2 to swap for any other date. Anything. I’m a desperate man. I will do anything. Yes, anything. Yes, really…

    [Edit: I should mention that I have actually received the E-Tickets from Jay and have spoken to him over the phone and confirmed what was said above; swaps are fine as long as somebody tells them it’s happened.]

    To re-iterate. Please. Born in 1984, Dwarfer since 1988… ‘Tis my life. (And the missus will turn me into a eunuch as well as she is rather obsessed with Dwarf as well…)

    Thank you for listening. Oh, additional… sorry to take up your valuable time. Sorry, thank you, sorry, bye, bye, sorry, thank you…

    I do not, I’m afraid… I’m not against the idea of signing up though – it just never really came up…

    Was just going to tweet your appeal and was thinking it might be the easiest way for someone to get in touch with you since we can only manually sign people up on here at the moment.

    Ah, thank you – that’s very kind of you!

    Done. Would be a shame if you were only one in this thread who didn’t get the swap they wanted.

    Thank you… :)

    And yes, that’s something of an understatement.

    I’d be willing to consider a cash incentive at this point… Perhaps I shouldn’t have said that…!

    Andrew Ellard? What an honour! (And I don’t mean that sarcastically, or suck-up-ly!)

    Thank you so much for your re-tweeting and negotiating on my behalf. And thank you Jonathan for planting the seedling tweet… and of course thank you to the person who responded, who I haven’t been in contact with yet but will be doing so immediately. I’m rather touched, having all you splendid people running around trying to help me.

    Eternal gratitude one and all.

    Fan club members who missed out on tickets should check the BTLi forums ASAP… Just sayin’
