August 14th, 2013.
Due to various factors both within and outside of my control, I have missed the last FOUR consecutive London premieres (at least two of which I regret). However, today was the premiere for "We're The Millers" and my instinct was : let's make it five in a row.
For one thing, I only had one spare battery which already 1000 images taken on it. For another, I've already got a good shot of Jennifer Aniston, I got it back in 2011 at the "Horrible Bosses" premiere. For a third : I'd left my spare camera and MAIN LENS at home anyway. For a fourth - the queue in Leicester Square at the time I arrived all but guaranteed I'd be third or fourth row... or worse. And for a fifth.... meh.
That's when I realised.... That's Precisely Why I Had To Go.
So I left the queue, went back to the office, dumped my backpack, and went for a drink. Here's how it went down.
So the issue was....I couldn't get into the premiere. It was already TOO PACKED. What to do? As stated above... go for a strategic Drink...
Who's looking stupid now, huh? And I'm not even drunk! Yet!
So... I guess I'm back in the game, even if it took getting drunk in a pub simultaneously for me to do it (!), and for the first time in two or three weeks I have a new journal for my "Archive of Movie Premieres"
Until next time! *hic*
