I'm here at the Uptown Theatre in Washington DC to see X-Men 2 with a bunch of people from TWoP. I'm waiting in the ticket line, but from here I can see lawtalkin'guy and elishavah and selannia and stuckeygilmore and several others. I'm very excited. I just saw jd shoulda been md and dcjayhawk near the front of the line... they must have gotten here wicked early. Almost at the box office now. Eeeeeeee!
In a rare bit of serendipity, I got my ticket just as the doors to the theatre opened, and I was able to hok up with a merry band of TWoPpers near the front, so I ended up not having to wait in line at all. Sweet. We've claimed the fourth and fifth rows of the balcony. Selannia and elishavah are peering over the edge, looking for people to drop things on. Or possibly for other TWoPpers. And imwalde and m.darcy are talking about rats.
Yay, it's starting! Time to turn off the phone. More updates after the show.
Well, that was just excellent. Everything a comic book geek could possibly want from a movie. We've left the theatre now and have gathered at Spices, an Asian restaurant across the street from the Uptown. There are about twenty of us here and we're kind of loud. But it's a good loud. The other patrons may not agree, but really that's their problem.
