This is a bit picture intensive so I thought I'd create a new thread..
Road trip! Bags packed, in the car, and ready for the Garmin to lead Meg and I to the promise land 200 miles away.
W00t! We made it! Thankfully, we didn't hit any traffic.
Now to drop off the car at the parking facility near the hotel and walk over to the cinema.. which is also near the hotel!
Here we are.
Although we're over 7 hours early (screening is at 7pm), we are not the first ones in line. One person is waiting before us. His name is Joe and he's a cartoonist. He's never seen Spaced before and is holding a place in line for his sister! What a guy! Very friendly too.
More folks start to show up. We immediately all start to bond. Peace, love, and Spaced.
The time line starts to blur at this point as we're all just chatting away and enjoying ourselves, aside from the 90+ degree heat and nasty humidity. Joe's sister shows up but soon they have to leave. I wasn't sure why, but we hope they can make it back before the screening.
At some point during the afternoon..
..as more people show, a cinema employee brings out a bit of rope for the line.
Oh yeah! Now it's official.. and guess what?
First in line! W00t again!
I take a few more pics while we wait..
The line starts to grow around the corner
So how's this for peace, love, and Spaced.. a couple of our new Spaced friends go and buy all the early arrivals a pizza and water! I can't begin to express how cool that was. Everyone was cool. Warm fuzzies all around!
The line grows some more. Actually, at this point the line is so long it's probably close to the end of the block.
It's roughly 6:30ish when Joe comes back and tells us his sister will be arriving soon. We insist they stay in our part of the line. When Joe's sister shows up, she brings us cupcakes. So totally awesome.
