MIDNIGHT VIEWERS!!!! 16.5 Million! Yes I went. Yes I took Dade. He did great!
I showed up at 7pm at the Gulf Point 30 location. When I arived there was 2000 people already lined up outside. Yes 2000! Well they were showing it on 25 screens, all sold out so it was not so bad really. Anyway I went alone with a Game Boy, a book, and my MP3 player. Dade in turn stayed home and slept(yea sure he did!) anyway Angie brought him up there at 11p. So i figured by myself for a few hours I'd read, play games, listen to some music or a book on tape I had... nope, as soon as I got there I met some very interesting people. We got to chatting and I never ended up using any of the gear. I'm still on a SW high! I only ended up with 1.5 hours of sleep that night but it was worrrrth it! No spoilers for awhile but there is a few things I do want to say.
What a nice weekend it turned out to be... I didn't think about work even for a minute. Now I'm sitting here back in my cave and thinking ugo! When did I start not liking this stuff... well at any rate today should go quickly as I am going to attempt to learn to .NET my way into a QuickBooks database using qbXML. It should be the shit if I can get it to work! As a matter of fact it opens a whole new world into QB programming if/when I get it working by at least an order of magnitude. It's seems boring to some but it's all very exciting to me.
Went to see the 'stros on Friday with G and S and Dade... Crawford box seats and even though we lost it was a great detox for me.
On Saturday we had Dade's Little League swim party... it was pretty cool! Had a blast except for the sunburn we both got!
Also over the weekend my Star Wars geeeeeeeekness showed up again... The Baytown Sun (our local paper) interviewed me for an article that turned into two and a picture! article one and article two the picture is not online. The second article is really about something I said... when the interview was over the reporter was walking to car and saying soemthing to the effect of she didn't know whether or not to see the movie at midnight. I asked her what she would be doing at 12:01 that so important that one of those once in a life moments might be missed... missing a couple of hours of sleep is no big deal as far as I am concerned.
Anyway... t-minus 2 days and a handfull of hours until ROTS.
You should have seen Star Wars at Bay Plaza like a real Baytonian! Man, that place was a dump and smelled like puke most of the time. I still remember coming out of the theater not believing what I just saw.
