    Word of advice:

    You guys should purchase tickets before arriving at the theatre. I see some of you have posted that you have done so, I reccommend that everyone purchase them online it possible. Citiplace is one of the most popular (if not the most popular) theatres in Baton Rouge. I am expected a lot of people for ROTK. By the way I live in Baton Rouge and work in Lafayette.

    well I'm sorry that I won't be able to attend wit you guys. I'll be working all day and then I'll have to be back at work at 6am Thursday. I can say that while you are all in Baton Rouge, I'll be representing us in Lafayette at the WestWood for the ROTK; be it by myself. I wish you all the luck and great viewing. I'll be with you all in spirit, yet a little closer to home.

    Hey Swamp sorry for the phone disconncet. I don't hardly have a signal at my new house.

    As for the meeting it is not looking good. After weeks of begging my boss for this day off she STILL has not given it to me. WHY you ask? Because we HATE each other with red passion! She denies me anything that I ask for. :(

    Time to find a new J O B :mad:

    Going to work must suck knowing she doesn't like you.

    We will miss you, but I understand. Especially with the baby Jedi around. People have to work to make a living. Everyone knows that. Don't be a stranger. Call my cell on off-peak hours anytime (9PM-6AM & Weekends), we should talk. Good luck and we will be thinking of you. Later

    Time for a recap . . .

    jmayeaux, Fallen_Knight, and nightbringer all could not attend, but wanted to. Work sucks!

    wicket_the_ewok showed up at 8:05 AM, in true college style, 5 min. late due to being up all night (Went see the midnight feature & did not get home till 4AM).

    Force_Addict, our newest member, was a little confused, and went to Tinseltown.

    Fellowship of the Ring started at 8:20 AM at my place, and Bakh-tor_01 showed up at 8:25 AM. He and I were up late playing STAR WARS Galaxies.

    DarthRender showed up, after a class of some sort at work, near the last quarter of FOTR, just as wicket_the_ewok woke up from his 2 hour nap.

    All 4 of us walked across the street and had PoorBoys. We started The Two Towers at 12:20 PM and agreed to fast forward through the running sceens and skip a few things. Edits curtesy of wicket_the_ewok.

    DarthRender left about midway through for an emergency meeting at work, and we messed around on the computer for a while. So watching the 2nd movie was a bust.

    When DarthRender returned, we all headed out for Baton Rouge, approx. 3:35 PM. Got to the grill just before 5 PM. We were joined shortly thereafter by Ubigod then by Lord_Sidious. We had a great meal and some laughs during our geek-talk session.

    Finally, the movie we had all been waiting for, Return of the King. It was sold out. Good thing we all had advance tickets. Next showing was 11PM. The lines and crowds were here! The movie left us in awe. It was that good.

    Next we took a couple of pictures to commerate the occasion, and said our good byes. That's a wrap.

    In my opinion, a successful FanForce Meeting.

    Sorry I couldn't attend, but I ended up seeing the 7:30 show at Citiplace. I was going to wait to see ROTK, since I am currently reading the books, but a friend of mine called me and she had won 2 tickets at work. So we went to the showing and loved every minute of it.

    This was one of the best movie going experiences of my life. Since I hadn't finished the books yet, everything was a surprise for me. The anticipation was great. I am just sad that it is now over. Hopefully, we'll get The Hobbit in a couple of years.
