Revenge of the Sith

I saw Revenge of the Sith last night, but it wasn't easy. My original plan was to see a 12 noon matinee, and in fact already bought my ticket online. Then I got a call from K, asking if I'd be willing to work a mid-day shift instead of closing. I said I would. On the way to the store, I stopped at the theater to exchange my matinee ticket for a later one, which I tucked into my wallet for safe-keeping.

I got off work around 8:00 PM. Technically I was scheduled to stay until 8:30, but the truth is that our business slows to a crawl on Staurday nights, so the MOD told me I may as well leave. (She may also have been worried that I would murder someone if I continued working on the project I'd been working on all day. More about said project anon.)

On the way to the theater, I stopped to get gas, and to check my e-mail. Once I reached the theater, I found the parking lot pretty much entirely full. But I found a pretty good spot behind a nearby office building, and very soon found myself at the at the door to the theater. Which is when I discovered my wallet was missing.

I high-tailed it back to the car, and realized upon not finding it that I must have left it at the gas station. Crap! So I gave up my pretty good parking space and drove back to the gass station, retrieved my wallet, and made it back five minutes after the advertised starting time. And yet despite being late, I still got to see both the Fantastic Four and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe trailers. Woot!

So anyway, the movie. I'm not much of a Star Wars fan, so I figured that as long as it wasn't completely awful, I would probably enjoy it. And I did! It wasn't a great movie by any stretch of the imagination, but I was entertained throughout, which ultimately is all I care about.
