must: (1) see star wars (2) graduate

So anyway, I took my final english project to get printed today, even thought it's due tomorrow. My professor is at a conference but she'll be back tomorrow so I figured I'd just put it in her mailbox and be done. Done! Really Done! With the whole college-degree-education deal... wow! I was just bouncing down the sidewalk.

I get up there though and her mailbox was crammed full of papers from other classes. I looked, thought about it, then decided I really didn't want to cram my pretty handbook thingy in there to be placed at the mercy of whoever else is cramming stuff in today. I'd have time to bring it tomorrow when she was actually there. I'd just do it then.

So, um, I'm not quite done.

I might get to see Star Wars today/tonight. Wish me luck! I cannot even describe how badly I want to see it, but the theater here is not worth anything and I don't like driving to Joplin (it's basically an hour drive) by myself. And my girls think I'm a total dork.

If you have seen it though, please be kind and do not torture me by commenting about how wonderful it is.

Must pack this place! Uhg! It's a mess!

clone meeeeeee!


You won't believe what I had to go through though! First, let me say that the town were I live has the worst theater ever. Awful popcorn, horrible sound/video quality, and the seats were invented in hell. So it was obvious we'd have to go to Joplin to see it. Dave had to get his driver's licence renewed before Sunday, so we missed the 4:15 show. By the time we showed up to get tickets at 5:00, the 7:00 and 7:15 shows were sold out. Dave had finals to study for, so we decided to go out for dinner and ditch the movie thing. He felt bad, but I told him I didn't mind, it wasn't the first time I'd missed opening day of Star Wars for a boyfriend. Although, last time it happened I ended up dumping the guy. Hmm.

Well, I got back to my room after a wonderful dinner at Olive Garden and just couldn't sit still... I really wanted to see Star Wars. Really a lot. So I called the theater here for showtimes. There was an 8:00 show that wasn't sold out yet! This was at like 7:20! I was so excited I decided to just ditch Dave (I called him first to see if it was okay) and go myself. To make sure I looked like a real dork instead of just a girl with friends were were going to meet her there, I wore the glow-in-the-dark Star Wars t-shirt and everything (it's a boys size large... fits horribly. But I love it!)

Bought my ticket, sat down, watched some previews. It's funny how those have a way of making you forget what movie you're seeing. Anyway, those got done and all the sudden the theme music starts and the Star Wars logo is up on the screen and I just wanted to laugh and cry all at the same time... I was so excited that I'd made it!

So for your enjoyment, here's the offical Spacefem review of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.
