Twelve hours.

Twelve hours from now, I'll be sitting in a crap theater in San José surrounded by fellow software engineers, all anxiously waiting for the first Lord of the Rings movie to start. I imagine this means that there will be a number of Bears in the audience, all of whom are somewhat shy but incredibly good in bed, and that none of us will trust each other to say hello after the movie. I also imagine that there will be a small contingent of men in the back of the theater making soft jiggly noises every time Galadriel shows up, and that people will be too caught up in the movie to care very much at all. There will also be a at least two unfortunate souls who will arrive wearing badly sewn Elvish capes that smell faintly of cat piss and which have at least one small burn from that last time the bong fell over. Finally, there will be a young couple, in love with each other, one of whom was dragged against their will to see a dorky phantasy movie, only to discover to their surprise that they actually enjoy it, and see their partner's romantic tendencies in a new, more sympathetic light. They'll marry at a Ren Fayre before 2002 is out, and will most likely wear peasant style clothes they sewed themselves from Simplicity patterns they found buried under macramé in their parents' attic. They will be happy.
