It’s finals week and I should be getting eight hours of sleep a night. Those are two insignificant details which did not foil my plans to go see the midnight premiere of “The Hobbit: an Unexpected Journey” on Thursday night, Dec. 13. Most of you were probably snug in your bed like sane people and have yet to see the movie, so I won’t ruin it for you with a review. Let’s be honest, the plot isn’t exactly *SPOILER ALERT* worthy anyways.
So instead I will take you on a journey with me. An “Unexpected Journey” via Twitter, if you will. Badda bing. Before you avid movie-goers yell at me for being the jerk in the theater with my phone out, this was all re-created in the cab ride home around 3:30 a.m.
11:11 p.m. Some kid on the T asks us if we like Lord of the Rings. Silly and too conversational for public transportation.
11:12 p.m. Actually…valid question. Not really. #IBleedHarryPotter
11:15 p.m. A couple of hobbits hop on the T.
11: 17 p.m. Overheard on the T: “Dude I’m so high right now. The 3D show is going to awesomeeee.” No, you’re all going to die.
11:20 p.m. Arrive at the theater: Oh my God. I’m the only girl here. Not joking. The. Only. Girl.
11:21 p.m. This ratio is horrible, they’re never going to let us in!! #ModProblems #RealLifeApplications
11:22 p.m. Disappointed with the lack of costumes. I’ve seen two hobbits and some elves. #Weak
11:24 p.m. Oh look a girl!!!! Hey! Hi! Wanna be friends!!?
11:25 p.m. A pretty legit Frodo walks in. Touche, Sir.
11:27 p.m. Does facial hair count as a costume? These people seem to think so. #GandalfApproves
11:29 p.m. @BCFashionPolice would be dying right now #NoVineyardVinesInSight #Whatever #OriginalityRocks
