    Anyway, I'm planning on making Wookie Cookies. I just got the first Star Wars cook book and those things are incredible!! I'm selling them at a bake sale this week, bet they go like crazy!

    Yes, the regular cd is out. But I'm waiting for Dec. 9th, when the expanded edition of the soundtrack comes out with bonus DVD. Nice Christmas present indeed...

    BTW, I'm probably seeing the movie opening night with my friends. HUZZAH!! Geez, can't wait!!! :D ;)

    Everyone else ready? If you need a ride/metro pickup or directions let me know. Everyone grab some sodas I think DarthTrader volunteered some food, but we will provide some as well. Requests anyone? I make a mean wookie cookie and my tacos are good too. I think we're having a veggie tray as well.

    Randy is bugging the crap out of me about what food and drinks (he scribes) that all of you want at the party. Please tell me so he leaves me alone. Thanks.

    I am going to see it on Friday night just as a precaution. My daughter's girl scout troop is having their Christmas party and going caroling at 6:00 and I'm hoping they'll wrap it up quickly. At least the theatre is close to my house so I can get there in 2 seconds.

    As for food suggestions...ya can't go wrong with chip dip.

    You're not coming to the pre-party now :( what a bummer. Hopefully we'll see you at the theater though.

    Head count on who is attending the pre-party?

    Guys, I heard a lot about this movie, and some people are saying this movie alone puts Star Wars to shame. That sounds like blasphemy, but it is LOTR. It's gonna be good nonetheless.

    It is amazing

    Everything else that made us think that Legolas is a bad-ass is nothing compared to what he does in this one.

    Of course the effects were flawless. They put anything that ILM has ever done or will ever do to shame. Why didn't Lucas just swallow his pride and let WETA animate Yoda?

    Anyway, I think I still like the battle of Helm's Deep the best, but I definitely think this is the best of the three. God I can't wait for the extended edition of this one to come out.

    Everyone go see it right now so I can talk about what actually happens!!!!

    Actually I read a scene by scene description of what happens in the movie so I already know how they wrapped up the end and how they deal with everything else. Some things are definately missing, but I suppose it basically keeps to the story. And all the reviews are right...you will cry. I was crying just reading this spoiler. I don't like some of the changes with characters' integrity. PJ makes good characters seem not so pure and okay ones seem horrible.
