Magic Mike

I have not felt this giddy about a male superstar since Justin Timberlake was in N'Sync.  Oh boy... am I excited to watch "Magic Mike" starring the one and only Channing a stripper. I think I am blushing and all I did was type his name.  So the movie is scheduled to open nationwide in theaters starting this Friday.
No, it does not matter what it's about.
But - here is where fate comes in, I scored two tickets to the pre-screening of the movie in Seattle tonight {as long as we get in, its first come, first served, so we need to get our butts there early, like "leave-work-kinda-early"}.  Does this count as an emergency? I think so!

Let me back up and tell you the full story.  I am kind of behind on updating our nextflix queue and "As Good As It Gets" staring Jack Nicholson came in the mail on Friday night. No, I have never seen it and thought I should watch it given how popular it was. We popped the BLU-RAY in on Saturday night and it was kind of entertaining, until Jack Nicholson started falling in love with Helen Hunt. YUCK! I was not impressed. So, I decided that I would look for Channing Tatum on Facebook. I came along a page called 'Channing Tatum Unwrapped' and "liked it" on Facebook. Then I proceed to find stalk him on twitter, look for his personal Facebook page, etc... you get the idea. Well, we finished the movie and went to bed.  The next morning, the second I open my eyes, I grab my phone and go on Facebook.  That is where the announcement was --- there was a post from the 'Channing Tatum Unwrapped' page that said "Free tickets to select pre-screenings of Magic Mike" in 17 cities nationwide. Click here." I was like well, Seattle is kind of a big city, but not that big. So, I clicked on the list.. and before I could even zoom in, I saw "WA" and I knew! I zoomed in and confirmed my suspicions - Yes, Seattle was on the list! Now, I love my phone but its tough to do a whole lot of anything on it, so I ran into the living room and grabbed the computer. At this point, Jake has spent quite a bit of time teasing me about CT and he was just laughing hysterically when I told him what I was up to.  I logged into the site after getting a few errors and reserved my {and my friend's} spots.  

Jake was like, "what would you do if he {CT} was at the pre-screening in Seattle?" I looked at him and said "I can't even think about that -- I would be WAY too excited to meet him in person. Let's just say I might not come home that night" *wink wink* Haha.... We have a lot of inside jokes about CT. The only bad part is that our spots are not guaranteed and I'm pretty sure I would be heartbroken if we didn't get in. So, the showing is scheduled for 7:00 and I am leaving work at 4:00 and heading straight there. Pray that I make it in time!  

{ CT } <3
Wowzers. Just wowzers.


  1. Haha awesome! I hope you get in!!!!!

  2. McConaughey was really good and having a blast. I'd heard some good things since the release, so I wasn't shocked that I liked the movie. Still, I held off watching it for a while. It was much better than I expected.

  3. It's "Showgirls" for girls, but with its camp knob tuned to a much more tolerable and skilled frequency... It's pretty awesome.
