Going To The Movies, Yea, It's Work

Published December 30, 2009

Avatar the Movie - Going to See ItYesterday, I tweeted that I want to see Avatar, but my wife has no interest in seeing it. I asked if there was a way I can go see it? I received a bunch of replies, including one from Mike Blumenthal and one from Andy Beal, long time colleagues of mine in the SEO industry, that I can use a work related excuse to see it. They said:

@rustybrick didn't "someone" in a "forum" say that Avatar had a hidden Google agenda? You should investigate & report back to us! ;-)

Go to matinee. Work related research of animation technique. RT @rustybrick: Need to see Avatar... Wife won't see it. Need a way to go..Hmm

Yea, work related excuse for seeing a movie. Really?

So two RBers took notice and asked for a RB field trip. The thing is, we have crazy deadlines before the New Year, so we couldn't go. But they then suggested we go on New Years day - yea, many of us come in on New Years day to work. I said sure.

I booked a handful of tickets at the local IMAX theatre, yea, we got an IMAX here. Two RBers are staying in the office, while some are not coming in at all and the rest of us, including myself, is going to the movies!

Honestly, I think it has been 2 years since I last went to see a movie in a theatre, maybe longer. So I am looking forward to it. And, hey, it is New Years Day - I can use some time off? Nah - I'll be in the office way early to get the things I need to get done that day, before the movie.
