rambling

Had an idea today for my Summer of Giles story. Need to do some research in Bartlet's for quotations about summer.

Saw an article in the newspaper. To celebrate Joss' birthday theaters around the country are doing a Serenity/Buffy triple header this weekend. An independent place here in town is going to be a part of it. The first feature is Serenity, then they are going to show 'Hush', then 'Once More With Feeling'. The theater manager called it a Rocky Horror for Buffy fans.

I don't usually go out at night, my husband works afternoons and I'd be on my own, but this is something I would go to. I would be among people with similar interests as well as leaving the theater with a crowd into a well lit parking lot. Things to be aware of when you're a woman driving alone at night.

On small problem.

Last Saturday night, on his way to work, a car ran a stop sign and hit my husband. Jim wasn't hurt, just seat belt bruises and banged knees from hitting the console, but our poor Ursula is not drive able, so he has to have our other car to get to work this Saturday. Poor George, he's going to be doing double duty until we either get Ursula fixed (not really very likely, she's 14 years old and it would cost more than she's worth) or we get another car.

Oh, well. Maybe we can figure something out. I'd really like to see Serenity on the big screen again. And a movie screen sized Giles? Yummy.

Oh, I wish you were closer! I'm planning to go into Austin for the screening. Yes, it's late, and I will suffer like hell the next day, but hey, I've done worse for worse, you know?

FWIW, I don't think our theater is doing anything that creative.

Yeah, it'd be a bit much to drive to Tucson to pick me up.

Darn

Woah. Nifty. I just dug around a little bit: the event is called Can't stop the Serenity, and it's a charity fundraiser. Not a lot of details about the showing nearest me, in San Francisco. Like, no mention of any Buffy screenings. It might be something that your local theater is doing to spice up the event, lucky you.

I went online and got a copy of the aritcle from the paper. You're right, it is for a fundrasier. I didn't care, I just want to go.

I don't think any of the theaters round here are doing that, will have to check. Wish I was closer so I could join you. And I agree, movie screen sized Giles, so very yummy. *dreams* *drools* *pouts*

Damn, that sounds like fun. I'll have to check the papers & see if it's going on somewhere in LA.
Or, I could fly out there & rent a car.
Want company?
