Making new friends

I got my very first blog related freebie last night! Jordan invited Rob and I to a screening of World Trade Center that she helped coordinate. It was so fun seeing all my new favorite Duboce bloggers in person!

Jordan quickly greeted us at the entrance. I met Betsy next. She and her date sat next to us in the theater. It took me a few minutes to gather the courage to introduce myself and I probably acted like a total stalker. How embarrassing!

As for the movie, it was pretty well done and a had a strong story. A bit corny here and there (hello water bottle messiah) but overall very tasteful. Maggie Gyllenhaal was particularly good. I think the film comes out in August. You should probably bring some tissues if you go: the woman sitting behind me sobbed mightily from the opening titles all the way through to the final credits.

After the movie we met up with Jordan and Paul and rode the bus home to our neighborhood. They are both so cute and friendly and I am really glad we had a chance to meet! I hope we'll be seeing more of them in the future. Yay for new friends!

You were one of the many highlights of the night! So fun to meet you! We'll all have to meet up for a meal next time. Not that a dark theater isn't a great place for a first meeting...
