California Here I Come

I'm taking a little vacation time at the end of this week. I have a special trip coming up. I'm heading out to California. Why, you may ask? BECAUSE I'M GOING TO A MOVIE PREMIERE! I know it's kind of cheesy, but it's still pretty cool if you ask me. A friend of mine is a movie director, and the last time I saw him he mentioned that I should try and come to the premiere of his next movie if I could, so I'm taking him up on his offer. I mean, c'mon, this may be my only chance to attend a Hollywood premiere as a guest of the director!

I had some stress over what I should wear at first, because I usually do not dress to impress. My friend said that I could wear whatever I want, but I didn't want to show up in shorts and a t-shirt. I did some snooping around on IMDB since they have lots of photos of people at premieres, and it really does run the gamut. I'm shooting for retro casual. Think more Jack Black than Daniel Craig! I'm sure I'll be the turd in the punchbowl anyway.

I don't know if I'll get to meet this guy or this guy. I certainly wouldn't turn down the chance to creep out this lovely lady in person. But either way I think it will be fun. I will also be spending some time with my sister (she's going to the premiere with me) and zoo animals. And there will be In N Out Burger. Good times! I imagine the experience will be something like this:

I'm not putting the name of the movie in the post because I don't want people searching for info on the movie to stumble across this post. It could result in me being blog-outed, and we wouldn't want that! But you can see the name of the movie in the photos below.

The invitation looks like a giant matchbook. Very cool.

Here's the inside.

I guess it's kind of dorky of me to wear brand new Chucks to this thing, but I'm kind of a dork anyway so it works out.

You're friends with the director of that movie?? No shit. I will have to keep an eye out for you in People magazine :) GQ just ran a big story on Seth Rogen and that movie. Very cool. He seems like a great guy.

How do you know this director person?

You're going to have so much fun! Awesome.

What you're friends with him?!

OK, your movie experience, are you planning on drinking a lot then bursting in at the end of the movie?

Seth is all over the place. We just watched Knocked Up. I bet you'll see Micheal C. You'll have a great time!

k - i'm going to wear the chucks today to begin the breaking in process.

a - we went to the same church when we were kids. We also went to the same high school, but he was 3 years behind me so we actually weren't there at the same time. One of his sisters was in my grade. He's always liked movies as long as I've known him, so I guess it makes sense that he would do that for a living.

pg - yes! And I would love to see Michael C!

b - i'm about to strap on the chucks!

v - thanks, and I hope I will have at least a few interesting photos to post.

l - thank you! Finally I get some good blogging material!
