New Mooooon


I am the Ticketmaster.

At least, that’s what Jen called me today when I was collecting money from friends in preparation for buying movie tickets for everyone.

Now I have ten glossy cinema passes in my purse, and they all say “New Moon” on them.

Unfortunately, they also say “Saturday”.  Two whole days away.  There’s a big, silly part of me that wishes I was standing with the crazy crowd waiting to see it at midnight tonight.  Some of them were already camped out in front of the theater when I stopped at the box office at 5pm.  They didn’t have capes and fangs on–at least not yet.  But I bet the crowd that’s out there now is chock full of pale Edwards and dark-haired Jacobs and clumsy Bellas.  And I can just imagine the cheering and woohoo-ing that will be taking place in the packed theater later.

Yeah, I’d like to be there.  But I’m not going to complain.

Because the Ticketmaster isn’t a whiner.
