Argh! Pirates We Be!

As some of you may have heard, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End was released tonight at 8:00. This is nothing less than a tremendous event in our home... probably the highlight of the year! (Really!) I promised the boys we could go tomorrow morning since we just wrapped up our week of testing today.

But feeling kinda antsy tonight, I grabbed a few of the boys and hopped in the car at 7:45 to see if we could catch one of the 4 shows starting between 8 and 8:45 at a nearby theater. Now, of course, this was destined to be a futile effort, but, well, what the heck.

"Just a minute," yells Daniel...

Okay, ready to go.

We arrived at the theater, walked right up to the ticket booth, and by 8:02 we were sitting in the theater with popcorn and sodas in hand (in great seats I might add) for the 8:10 show!!

Of course I got dressed up too...

(Well, I was wearing black pants.)

We exited the theater around 11:00 to find mobs of people waiting to get in... including my oldest son who was there with a group of friends and a dad who had purchased tickets for the midnight show over a week ago!

Oh, and the movie... Awesome! Exciting, funny, action-packed, and unpredictable... no sequel slacking here!

ETA: As thrilled as my sons are to have a mother that will not only take them to see Pirates but enjoy it as much as they do, it was much to their chagrin that I was the only person to give a big "Woo-hoo" for "the kiss". What kiss? I'm not telling, you'll have to see it yourself.

BTW - If you've seen it, e-mail me... I want to know what you thought! tlreed_81 at msn dot com

Did you knit while watching? You could have worked on one of those pirate items (I think there is the one on the cover of Glad you had a fun night with your men!

Sounds like fun! I can't wait to see this movie too, but I'm going to wait a bit. I don't like crowded theatres. About the comment you left regarding the Sea Silk...the stuff is wonderful. If I was going to knit myself something, I would choose the colour I'm using now (Periwinkle).
