ahh, nothing like... nothing.
Since yesterday was my mom's birthday, I was compelled to spend the day with her. Or rather, the afternoon, anyway. Well, to be honest, the main reason I agreed to go was because my brother was in town and I didn't get to see him the last time he was in town.

They picked me up at 1pm to go to Southlake, to see The Dark Knight on the biggest screen in the Metroplex (70'x30', it really is impressive). The showing was at 7pm, but because my mom's he's-not-my-boyfriend-I-swear is one of those people who's horribly picky about his seat, he wanted us to be there at 4pm to sit in line... He brought a friend, and so did my brother. I actually didn't have a bad time, except that my mother's reckless driving is always a horrible strain on my nerves (it didn't bother me that much until I got a driver's license of my own and realized just how dangerous her driving is), and I really didn't like the movie. I wasn't all that jazzed about going to see it in the first place, since I'd seen previews and reviews on the internet and already knew it wasn't the sort of movie I like. I ended up walking out about an hour and a half in, because I just really didn't want to see any more (in case anyone's keeping score, the last time I walked out of a movie was Matrix: Revolutions).

Then my brother's friend drove me home, because he was coming back to Plano anyway to visit his girlfriend, who happens to live not far from me. He's only 17, but drives much better than my mother does. Take that as you will.

3 hours to sit in line?!!? *bleagh* I don't think I'd have made it into the movie to be honest. :-) (note to cinema: get pre-bookings, dammit.)

Glad you got to see your family though. :-)

We had tickets already, they were sold out by the time we arrived. This was the indoor queue to actually enter the theater when the movie was about to start. This is the sort of thing you do on the opening weekend of the movie everyone wants to see, if you want to get decent seats and sit together. My mom's friend is horribly picky about his seats, so we were hoping for a good spot in this line. As it turns out, we were behind one couple.
