No battle plan ever survives first contact with the enemy...
On lighter notes... Target handed out really "lame" goody bags. Only "lame" until we got to the bottom of the bag and found numbered bronze coins that say "Waiting in line is evidence of your devotion to the Force". They are really neat. The coolest thing is that Karen's bag had two coins, (maybe one is for Beastmaster) and they are sequentially numbered... we know they made at least 15,000 of them.
The media blitzed us and then left. For now that is.
Lots of lightsabers. Lots of kids (and after all, isn't it all about the kids). Lots of hot (not hawt) people. Lots of folding chairs.
The Pop Tart eating contest was a HUGE success. Matt Giddens' brother Ben (Jonesboro! Represent YO) won with 8 Pop Tarts in two minutes. He would have made Johnny Knoxville proud. We'll do some Charades and Jeapardy later on.
They'll be seating us about 3 hours prior to the movie. Which will be great for their concession business but bad for our butts.
That's all for now. I don't know if I'll get another entry in before we get seated. If not, MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU ALL!
