And so, the roles are reversed

Last year, Harry Potter and the Chamber Of Secrets was premiered across the UK over two days, a week before its US release. Because I went to one of these and earenwe couldn't, I was forced to keep my mouth shut for a whole week until she had seen the film for herself. It was torture.

By now earenwe has already seen The Matrix Reloaded, which doesn't come out in UK cinemas until the Wednesday of next week. The timing sucks, as five have scheduled Matrix night that night instead of the Tuesday, which would make more sense. The first showing of Reloaded is at 8:30pm, half an hour before the original plays on five.

On Thursday, there are showings every half hour during the day, but of course Thursday night is brew night for Dad (more like a habit than a steadfast tradition), so even the 5:20pm showing wouldn't be early enough. If we went to the 4:20pm showing, Mum would have to leave work an hour early. I'm hoping I can persuade her.

So, that leaves a week from today for earenwe to keep her mouth shut. That applies to the rest of you miscreants, too.
