Good morning from St. Paul Minneapolis.
I am at my son’s apartment where I am currently drinking coffee out of his Harry Potter mug and enjoying the absolute quiet. He is still sleeping and I never noticed at home but the dogs and the background noise of the equipment from our excavating business must create some sort of low-level noise because this here is
And I like it.
I am in Minneapolis because Justin (son) and I went to the pre-showing of the movie The Longest Ride last night. It was kind of a cool invite and we were told that when we came to the theater that we were supposed to check in with the studio rep and to be there by 6:45 pm.
We were there around 6:35 pm and we were directed to a LONG LINE of people waiting to get in at the door they had mentioned. Justin and I walked to the end of the line and waited in the line that barely moved until 6:55. I asked Justin to go check out the front of the line and see what was happening. I was hoping we were doing this right as this was my first invite of anything like this.
Justin disappeared around the corner and then came back waving me forward. We were doing it wrong. We went to the front of the line, checked in with the lady with the clip board and on in we went. It was a little crazy as there were security people letting us into the theater.
We were told to stay in our seats after the movie because Twentieth Century Fox was there filming for future advertising and wanted shots of the crowd. We watched the movie (which was really good!) and afterwards we sat there as we were told and a side door opened and…
YES! A side door opened and Scott Eastwood and Britt Robertson walked in to the front of the theater. We had a fun 20 minutes with them as they answered questions about the moving, bull riding, their “romantic scenes” together….
What a fun event!
Yesterday I razzed up the whole “I am not a fan of country things” and I have to admit to a little softening of the heart today. The movie was very good and opens at the theaters on April 10th. This afternoon I have the opportunity of sitting at a round table and asking these two stars questions about the book that became a movie. I am geeky excited and nervous all at the same time.
Also, my giveaway I am hosting for the $25 Visa card, tote, and copy of The Longest Ride book is still going on. If you have not signed up… you should. Winner will be drawn this Friday.
Do you have any brilliant questions I should ask?
