    As of now I'm planning to work both days. I figure I'll watch the last showing on Friday night, because I'll help do 'whatever' for the first two shows.

    I'm like so there, Rox.

    If I'm not on the list of 26, put me on the list, and I'll reimburse ya. :)

    On another topic... anyone up for food beforehand? If so, where?

    I *do* know of a take-out BBQ restaurant about a mile or two north of the Science Center: Wilson's, which has half-racks of pork ribs for about $10 and half chickens for about $4.

    I'm from the South. The Deep South. And Wilson's has DAMN fine barbecue.

    Any other ideas?

    Greetings, blokes.

    Yo, Rox. I have every intention of attending the Friday, Nov 1st 6:45 showing, along with 3 of my willing lackies. Unfortunately, I work most of both Friday and Saturday, so I can't really help out with the festivities.

    Anyway, I was wondering if it was possible to leech some tickets out of the pool of 26, or if I could persuade you to reserve a few extra to cover me and my cronies, even though I can't help out. (Note: These are definites, and I have no problem shooting you the bucks to cover it. 4 tix total.)

    If you can't/won't have the extra tix for me and my buds, I'll want to see to scoring my own tix as early as possible. Please let me know what's up as soon as you can so I can act before it's too late. I'd sell my first-born child to get into this thing on opening night.

    That's about it really. Pleae let me know as soon as you can. Thanks, dude.

    Chillin' like a villian,
    Yours Truly

    Myself and Crimson Knight most likely will be the only ones from the 501st who will see the 9pm Friday showing. The concensus from the other 501st members was they wanted to see the 9pm Sat showing. I contacted Torey from the Science Center and have the tickets reserved for the 501st members for the 9pm Sat showing.

    Rox you can make the 4 other 501st tickets available for the 9pm Fri showing. If you can't get rid of them I will pay you for the unused tickets since there was a change in the original plans for the tickets.

    Hmm.. I know Walmart has some boots- male and female- I was up there a few weeks ago..
    They have more of a selection for women, but they do have male large work boots.

    On the issue of Jedi boots:

    I ended up buying cheap, black rain boots (the type that go up your shin) from Wal-Mart and painted them brown with... lemme check...

    "High Gloss Leather Brown latex enamel."

    It took three or four coats over about a week's time to get them to my exacting standards, but if you get the boots and paint today and paint them tonight, it should be fine.


    Since no one took me up on my offer for food beforehand, I'll take it we'll just meet there.

    (If anyone wants dinner afterwards... :))


    Rox:

    I'm SO there, dude. I should get there around 6:00 (hopefully), and I'll pay ya when I get there.

    How much do I owe ya?

    And if there's still an unclaimed ticket for the late show, I think I'll take you up on that one - IF it's unclaimed. I'm not gonna deprive somebody the chance to see it once tomorrow just to see it twice myself.


    TCG Players:

    Anybody wanna bring their cards? If not to play then at LEAST to trade? :D


    FINALLY:

    I'll be driving from Oakland to the Science Center. Anyone (CMU / Pitt students?) need a ride?

    I just sent you a reply to your private message. Hopefully, we can work out the arrangements - I'd be happy to give ya a ride.


    Rox:

    Thanks for hooking me up - I just didn't wanna seem too greedy. ;)

    (And there's a difference between selling drugs and AOTC IMAX tickets?)

    How much will I owe ya? $15 per showing, right?
