I'm freaking excited!

Question - (I also asked on the Facebook event site) - do we need to buy tickets in advance or is it a show up on the night kind of screening? I'd have to leave work crazy early to stand a chance in hell of getting in, if so.

Thirded.

Jon, despite not being sure if it's perfect yet, it's worth trying. Even if only your legs get to go.

Aww, just noticed the links to our sites on the sidebar. Thanks to whoever's responsible!

Huh - Devin Johnson. I talked to him for our US Primeval book launch. What a delightful flat-cap he's wearing.

Sounds fantastic. Very jealous indeed. Although our American lot deserve it for the lack of official Spaced-ness they've had all these years. Enjoy yourselves, whoever's going, and whore pictures like your life depends on it!

I'm going to take as many pix as I can. I've arranged for the day off from work, and I intend to go to both LA events -- but I'm going by myself as my only "friend in Spaced" here in LA is in Michigan for wedding that week. Who will take a picture of ME WITH SIMON AND JESS!? I don't want to take pix of just them like they're animals at the zoo. laugh.gif

And I get ... embarrassed ... easily. I so wanted to shake Edgar's hand at the LAFF screening, but I chickened out. Without someone egging me on, I won't have the courage to ask him or anyone else to take one. I'll just push my DVD in front of them, grunt at them and leave. blush.gif

Awww, shaka! Just ask them for a piccie and someone else is always happy to take it for you. They are the nicest people you will ever meet (I haven't met Jess but I bet she's a star) and always take time for fans, especially people on the SO, Peggster and EW boards. So be brave. They will reward you for it. smile.gif

I really want to go to the signing but I work miles from Union Square and it's in the middle of the day. Gah. I'll just have to take my stuff to the screening and hope I can grab Jess quickly to sign my boxset, it already has Edgar's and Simon's signatures. Fingers crossed I spot them in the lobby like I did with Edgar last year! smile.gif
