I’m not going to lie, Squiders. For the last week or so I’ve had kind of a constant underthought going through my head. And it goes a little something like this:


It crept up on me. When the latest trailer came out and everyone was so excited, I thought it was merely okay. I didn’t bother fighting everyone for opening night/day tickets. And I’m a bit burned, because of the Star Wars prequels and the fact that the last Star Trek movie had some major issues going for it.

But all the same it’s snuck up on me anyway.

Anticipation is a funny thing, isn’t it? It’s a mixture of good and bad. Excitement and anxiety. Something could be amazing–or terrible. Or anywhere in between. And it’s kind of fun, a break from normal life. Sometimes it’s just something on your mind, something coming up to look forward to. Sometimes it’s more of an obsession.

If nothing else, I have some family members who are going to be way easier to shop for this year than usual.

Have anything you’re looking forward to, Squiders? Some big event coming up? Tickets to the Force Awakens? (We’re going on the 19th at lunchtime.)

      Isn’t it funny? Any other movie you’d never pre-buy tickets for a week after release.

          Ha! I guess I’m just too lazy to bother. Although we do have a theater here with assigned seating, so if we’re going there, we’ll always buy tickets well in advance.

            Love assigned seats, plus ours has an adult area with adult beverages now.
