Harry Potter Line

Whose bright idea was it to see one of this year's biggest movie releases on its opening weekend? Oh that's right, it was ours. A collective decision. More like Andi saying, "I want to see Harry Potter." And me saying, "Hey, how 'bout Saturday?"

It was 3:25pm.

The 3:30 show had been sold out since before we arrived. The 4:00 show sold out the moment I tried to purchase two tickets. That left us with the choice to see another movie, see no movie at all, or stick around for the 5:10 showing.

In a panic-purchase, we chose to see it at 5:10.

As we turned the corner of the theater, there was a crowd of people, all standing behind four posted signs. That's when we realized it was the line to see Harry Potter. Folks were already in the 5:10 line.

That's when I was about to scalp tickets. But it was still too early. People were still arriving in hopes of seeing the 4:00 show. So Andi and I went to get a bite to eat and sit outside, people-watching. One of my favorite things to do. It was a beautiful day for it too.

Somehow I got soft, "We're here. We can stand in line I suppose." Andi didn't miss a beat, "Okay!" I guessed then that it was me all along who wasn't much into waiting.

Let's play Where's Andi? -- Here she is in the line at 4:15 (for the 5:10 showing).




Just in case you missed her...

Happy Sunday everyone. We're off to celebrate a certain Yakkie's Birthday.

Anonymous Andi B. said ... (2:17 PM) : 

Oh cool! I'll join the other Andi and try to become a buddy of yours too. :)

Do you like Fame? the series? That's how I found your website to begin with. I'll email you later.
Very busy Sunday. Was the Harry Potter wait worth it????

so how was the movie?


Blogger Sie said ... (4:35 PM) : 

The last movie I went to see was when the original Harry Potter came out in theaters. I think I'm ready to go again so I hope this new one is another good one!

My family went today, but I stayed home to enjoy the peace and quiet. I hope you and Andi had a great time. Hey...where is Andi's bloglines journal????


Blogger Fun Joel said ... (6:59 PM) : 

Yay! Welcome to your new "virtual" home! When's the housewarming party? Congrats on dropping that annoying, clunky, ugh-tastic AOL crap! :-)


Blogger Kari said ... (10:41 PM) : 

Saw the movie today and LOVED IT!


Blogger Becky said ... (2:54 AM) : 

You two are a riot! I don't think I've stood in an opening weekend line since Star Wars (the original one) came out. LOL ;-)


Blogger aims said ... (11:30 AM) : 

Hey girl. It was good to catch up on what's going on in your world. Looks like you've got most of this "code" stuff figured out. I believe I like the layout better than your other journal! More options, etc...Looks great. I doubt I'll ever find time to learn. But at least I've figured out how to post. That's a good thing. :-)

Take care!

Oh, you guys are just so adorable!

This is why I only go to see French or Japanese animated films; ones with subtitles that feature singing crones or the spirits of the dead. There's so rarely a line.

In this case, I think I'll wait for the book to come out. Do you think there'll be a book?


Blogger ChasingMoksha said ... (7:23 PM) : 

HAH! Me and my little one went to the 1:30 showing today! No line, no wait. Well not to buy the tickets anyway. The popcorn is another story. We had great seats. A quiet audience, and no children. I got her out of school early to see it.


Cedric Diggority was totally hot!


Blogger Robbie said ... (10:05 PM) : 

That "Where's Andi/Waldo." pic is even more funny after the second and third time looking at because everyone around her seems absolutely oblivious to what is going on. Hilarious!!! :-)


Blogger Sharky said ... (11:45 AM) : 

too funny, love this post! so cute. and the where's Andi, hilarous. so entertaining you are!

I am a huge people watcher too...big time fun, little or no money, lol.

anyway, hope the movie was great, I want to see it too. But, I am waiting. Because I hate to wait in lines. :P


Anonymous Maria said ... (7:27 PM) : 

Good the little circle of interest! Hope the movie was good....say your journal on Scalzi's other journals. Happy Thanksgiving weekend!


Blogger Kristeena said ... (11:25 PM) : 

Dang, wasn't it awesome though?!?! Totally worth it, and I haven't even had time to read the books yet. Of course, Em complained because they left so much out (just like she does after every HP movie), but I thought it rocked.

I bought my tickets four hours in advance and STILL had to wait in line to get in. (still worth it!)
