I've been preparing for about 3 years! [In reply to] Can't Post

Or at least when the movie was green-lit and especially once Peter took over the helm! I've had a little piggy bank that I've put change and about $5 a pay just for my tickets for going to UJ (already saving for films 2&3). I'm quite a gatherer/hoarder... so I've kept my eye open for treasure for months now.

This week... well... I'll admit to having a lot of twitching and spasm-attacks. I'm passing the time getting ready for hosting the line party at 12:01am on December 14th ;) Doing some posting here, etc.

The very neat thing is that when I was at the LotR Marathon last weekend, the theatre manager hunted me down between films to see how I was doing. They still call me "the Lord of the Rings lady". He asked what # of viewings the marathon was, and I told him it made my theatre viewings an average of 60 per film. I told him I wouldn't be doing that many for the Hobbit films because I'm paying off bills for retirement soon (I hope), and because the movies were more expensive to go to now. Then I chuckled and said, "I thought I should ask you if I could get my tickets at a bulk rate." and I laughed. He looked me dead in the eye and said, "I can do that."

"What?"

"Yeah... we can do that. How many viewings were you thinking? Matinee or evenings? Could you pay for them all up front?"

"Uh... Really?"

"Yep. Email me on Monday and we'll figure something out. I can let you know when you come for the movie on Thursday night."

"WOW! REALLY!? OK!!!" :D

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.
