Where’s my "Geek" nametag?

May 15, 2002

Well, here we are, about 8 hours away from the 12:01am showing of Ep II, and I am just as anxious and excited as I said I wasn’t going to be. Let me back up a bit….

After what can be described as a lukewarm personal response to Ep I, I became determined to not get overly-excited about the latest Star Wars movie. After all, the more I watched Menace, the more I appreciated it. However, I still felt some kind of geek obligation to go and see the movie at 12:01, I mean, that’s when I saw Lord Of The Rings the first time, and that’s when I saw the first 3 Batman movies, etc. I even thought I would go to the new shiny AMC Eden Prairie 18 to see it. However, after repeated attempts at purchasing tickets online, I finally drove over to their box office and they told me they were sold out.

This is where I realized that my geekdom was merely in hibernation. I was really starting to worry that I wouldn’t be able to see it @ Midnight. I checked with 2 other theatres nearby and they too were sold out! What was I to do? I finally did find out that Marcus Cinema Oakdale (Which, coincidentally, was where I first saw Fellowship.) had tickets available online, and I was able to purchase them.

So, My wife & I, (and eight of our closest friends) will be attending this Midnight show, and IT’S ALL I CAN BLOODY THINK ABOUT!!! I guess maybe my name tag should read “Super Geek“.
