Hey Lunchbox!

Yep, I'm from Jersey. And if you know anything about where I live in Jersey I'm dangerously close to two celebrity hometowns. That would be Freehold-home to Bruce Springsteen. (Bruuuuce!!!!!) And also Red Bank-home to Kevin Smith.



OK, so it's not like Paris Hilton or Celine Dion type celebrity but still, there are many, many dedicated fans and we do hold the movie Clerks very, very close to our hearts. So was it coincidence or fate when this weekend on our knitting group night, in our knitting group town Netflix decided to have it's Rolling Roadshow featuring Q&A with Kevin Smith, autographs by the cast, a showing of the movie, and of course... knitting for everyone! Ok, so maybe we were the only ones knitting, but that's ok, it doesn't stop us.


Me and Tracy. Note the presence of the Fetchings in progress. We loves us the Fetchings!!!

Erin and Chris. Where's Chris's knitting? Hmm....

Colleen and Andy. Aww....

Oh and of course, you know wherever they go knitters are bound to make new friends...


How cool is that? It's a freaking Imperial Stormtrooper! He's promoting their 'professional costuming service' where you can rent these guys out for parties and stuff. Or to like randomly follow you around and help you with your errands if you want. You know, groceries, going to the bank, getting a pedicure.... Not that I ever thought of that....

Eventually the sun went down and it was time for some Bezerker.


It was a really fun night. And for all you movie buff's out there I really have to recommend you check out The Netflix Rolling Roadshow and see if there's one near you. They are free and really, really fun. They are trying show the movies outside in places where it was filmed or near there. Hubby is already totally disappointed he missed seeing the Warriors at Coney Island. The ones I wish I could go to? Well they're showing Ferris Bueller's Day off in Northbrook, IL, Raizing Arizona in Apache Junction, AZ, Field of Dreams in the baseball field in Iowa where it was filmed, The Searchers with John Wayne in Monument Valley, Utah. Not that I'm a big John Wayne fan, but how cool would it be to see any movie (especially a western) in Monument Valley. Sigh... One of these days I'm going to get that RV together and make all of them....

Finally you're back on the blog! I was actually going to just yell at you on here and then (foreseeing a scolding I suppose) you posted!
Yeah for Jersey and all things NJ related!

"37?!?"

Oh, I forgot to look in yourside bar, did you put your new exchanges in there?

~BTW, can I tell you I HATE that picture of me! You look cute though ;-)

How cool to be able to catch a movie outside. I really need to see if Netflix does any tours in Canada.
Toronto, Halifax, Vancouver and Winnipeg are big filming spots, maybe they will.

Oh, to see myself standing beside a stormtrooper...

Yes, I'm a hardcore Star Wars fan and a sock-addict.

That all looked like a lot of fun and very cool!

That's cool about the Stormtroopers. I think it would be funny to rent one or more for a day and just go around town and do your errands just to see what people say. lol.
