That was.....

May 6th, 2008 (03:15 am)

(may i quote the little boy in front of THE INCREDIBLES' house?)


THAT WAS AWESOME!!!!


yeah.
That Rocked.

Stood in line in my jammies...
was wildly relieved to get a ticket.

Stood in the post-line, the line AFTER the ticket...
where all the best banter is.

In front of me were children who kept texting each other...
are they out of school?
WHO lets them out of school....they should stay there until they are ripe enough
for public.
*SAYS THE GRUMPY OLD LADY*

Behind me were two guys talking about their wives and their jobs and their kids...
and they both looked like young men who shouldn't have words so dour and settled
and dead--coming out of their mouths.
*SAYS THE WEIRD OLD CHILDLESS SINGLE WAITRESS IN SPIDEY JAMMIES*

But across from me, two line wraps away, was this loverly creature.
Looked like Matthew Gray Gubler.

...with cool wire rim glasses.

@_@

I caught him looking back at me, when I had turned away.
Maybe because I was wearing PJs, and standing all alone in a movie line?

Who knows.

The line finally began to move, we all shuffled forward into the heart of the Alamo South
and made our way into the Theater where we would see our show.

Fun really, to be one person looking for a seat.
You can have your pick.
People are so often afraid to sit next to strangers...

My favourite seat is half way up, dead center.
I saw it, it was empty.

Is this seat taken?
I asked the couple to the left of it...
and then my 'Matthew Gray Gubler' to the right of it.

*BEAMS*

NO--they both said.
So I climbed under the rail and made myself comfortable.

Put my big red bag under the seat and scrawled: BASS ALE
on the little card provided, with the golf pencil provided
and stuck it up in the clip of the bar in front of me, so cleverly provided as well.

Our waiter came by, Dustin, he asked me as he is trained to ask me
HAVE YOU BEEN TO ALAMO BEFORE--yes sir, I said.
He took my ticket, marked it, stuck it where my little card had been
and recorded my order.

He went to 'Gubler' next, asked the same thing.
A HUNDRED TIMES, says 'Gubler'
ah, said the waiter--and me only dozens.

(why do people think they are the first person to say something like that
to a waiter in his house of business?
JUST SAY YES. THERE ARE NO TROPHIES.)

My BASS came before anyone else's drinks or food.
^_^
I curled my toes and kicked off my flip flops, pulled my knees under my chin
my chair arm-rests down.....
and enjoyed the old IRON MAN cartoons they were playing.

I turned to 'Gubler'--So, you an IRON MAN fan?

Well, he explained You really just have to be a Marvel fan
to get the gist of all of it--yeah I pretty much know them all.


(oh--this IS going to be fun.)

So you would agree I asked him
it is really wildly relevant that a character who's origins are Vietnam era based
should be brought into frame again, right now, yeah?


Ummmmmm....yeah.

*hahahahahhaha*

And so it went....

I loved the movie.

(I really want to watch it with my Pop, as you may imagine...so much USAF and all.
No idea what his take would be, but I think we could laugh...particularly about the SR-71)

I grabbed the gal next to me at one point and all but screamed: (cryptified for spoilers)
Oh god, of course, 'cause there's the backup--because she LOVES him!!!

She grabbed my arm back (she a comic book virgin) and said:
I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW!!!!

I'd howled when Stan Lee made his appearance, and I explained who he was
to this nice young woman who was as easily excitable (thank-fully) as I was.

we were both then, aloud (SIC) to talk.

She went nuts, like I do...
It was FANTASTIC.

IRON MAN

'Gubler' and i exchanged knee nudges, anytime the plot went coy
any touch of --YOU HAVE TO KNOW THIS TO LAUGH OR NOD.

and I, well, any of you folks who know me in flesh and have been to a film of this sort
with me
know
I hit.

I punched him the better part of a dozen times.
And shook him.

He liked it.

*with-the-because-omg-hahahahahhahahaaa!*

like so.

His name, is Adolfo.
He'd brought three guy friends with him so he could school them
on MARVEL.

Most of them went outside before the credits were finished
and smoked cigarettes.

We sat for the S.H.I.E.L.D. trailer.
Ultimate Avengers!
(i um, screamed that, after the 20 second trailer)

My new girlfriend, I never caught her name.
But I am pretty sure....she's MARVEL curious now.

*LAUGHS AND LAUGHS*

must see it again,
simply must.

But how could the company compare?
It is good to be a stranger alone in the cinema...
and find common ground.
Find friends on either side of a single seat?

I haven't loved Robert Downey Jr this much since LESS THAN ZERO...
no.
Since CHAPLIN.

Who could be Professor Xavier, but Patrick Stewart?

Who could be Tony Stark...
but Robert Downey Junior.

Fe 26.........man.

Best invention EVER.

Alamo South Lamar is my favourite,

I am -- but it's only for a few days and I'm not sure what our plan is just yet. I want to show Jeffrey evvvvverything and I don't want to overload him with "And now we're going to go see yet another friend of mine whom you don't know..." That said, I would of course love to meet you at last in person....

No pressure my dear.
I have a feeling
we will know each other for a long time.

Enjoy your visit.
