    Well if being idle is a national past time, then I must be a professional player. I have probably received a couple of checks for it, but I am too lazy to check the mailbox. Slackers rule!

    And to answer your question Darth, we do get together occasionally outside of meetings, but it isn't something we do regularly. To give an example, I was going to throw out an invitation and see if anyone wanted to catch Sin City with me over at the Carmike 10 tonight. I will be going to either the 7:00 or 9:45 showing, so if anyone is interested just get back to me and we'll meet up for some movie fun.

    Just got word that West Town Mall might be doing a midnight showing of Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy. They will definitely have it this weekend for sure.

    Just some FYI. :D

    Well, it looks like we now have a location and some show times for Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. First off, it is going to be at Regal West Town Mall, so I guess that we could eat eat at Applebee's, Chili's, or anywhere else pretty easily. Secondly, there are two times, 7:20 and 7:50, that we could watch it at. Now that the location is settled, I guess my next question would be which show would we rather go to?

    My own feeling on it is that we normally meet at 7:00 so we should probably catch the earlier show, but I also know that not everyone makes it on time due to reasons that I totally understand. What I will do is leave this open until Wednesday afternoon. If no one objects then I will go ahead and set us up for the 7:20 show and get a mod to update the thread to reflect that.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is speak now or forever hold your peace. :D

    hm... midnight showing... wouldn't have thought of that for hitchhiker. I might have to check that out.

    As for the meeting, I think 7:20 is a good and safe time. Closest to the usual time meeting and I don't have a problem with it :) I'll be there!

    Time's up, so the 7:20 show it is. I will get the information to a mod and update the thread, and I will see you guys there!

    I will be taking in the midnight show. Where will you guys be meeting afterwards and around what time? I might have to work late on Friday and will most likely not make the 7:20 show.

    Hehe, so who's brining their towel? I'll be thoroughly embarasing everyone around me with mine :p And if you don't know what I'm talking about... bahahahahaha!

    Well restaurants tend to get slammed on Friday nights, but I'm gunning for either Chili's or Applebee's. We'll try to hit Chili's first, so going by the movie's running time (1 hour and 50 minutes) that should be around 9:20 or so. It could be earlier or later than that, but I wouldn't think that it would be more than 5 to 10 minutes either way.

    I'm looking forward to meeting you, so I hope you can make it!

    .. and I have no clue as to what you are referring to with the towel thing, so I guess the joke is on me. Oh well, it wouldn't be the first time that has happened. :)

    I guess a meeting spot would be a good idea. We will meet at the fountain right outside of the box office/concessions area by no later than 7:15. Sound good?
