A Fan Party and movie release worth missing sleep for

The Austin event has been canceled. For those who entered the giveaway I’m sure you are as disappointed as I am.




I’m kind of geeking out at the moment. For that you will have to bear with me.




I’ve been to a few movies lately – ok, so I’ve been to one movie a few times – whatever. Regardless, there was one preview I saw over and over that I was UBER stoked about. As I sat in the theater watching the preview I was getting excited about a movie coming out… It’s probably not what you are thinking. I’m not excited about some new Rom Com or some sappy lovey dovey movie… I’m UBER stoked about the release of The Hobbit – An Unexpected Journey!!!

I realize that I may have lost “cool points” with some of you, but I figure I may have gained cool points from others, so it’s a wash! Right?!?!

I don’t NORMALLY go to huge fan parties or midnight releases. I like sleep way too much for that, but when I was notified about the Hobbit-Inspired Tolkien Fan Party at Cinemark Southpark Meadows Austin, I was so excited I couldn’t help but rub it in Dad’s face. He’s the ultimate fan of course and jealous that mom won’t let HIM join me.

This is MORE than just a movie release. This is a true event!
