When we say that not even snow was going to stop us from seeing Desolation of Smaug at midnight….we didn’t expect that to be put to the test. We are hardy geeks (and prepared from last year) so even though it snowed the *entire time* we were standing in line (and Regal for reasons unknown to any of us did not let the line wait inside) we made the best of it:
Umbrella to keep the snow off of books. Jesse later on had mini speakers perched in his gloves on his belt playing LOTR soundtrack. We took turns actually standing in line in the snow and standing under the ledge next to Coldstone. Death Lady was preparing, knitting her way through the wait, and Naomi was also reading. We had more of our party who had never been to madness that is a midnight showing and was a good sport- but once was enough for him!
We only got there three hours before midnight, but that was enough to get good seats, even though we all couldn’t sit together. Our audience was treated to a man proposing to his girlfriend and another person announce right before the movie started, ‘I waited 11 Hours for this!’
(I’ll be posting my thoughts on the movie in tomorrow’s post.)
To finish off our Hobbit weekend we went to a late brunch at Denny’s on Friday for their Hobbit menu. Which really, if you are at all a fan, go to Denny’s and check it out. It was great fun last year, and equally fun this year.
