Okay, I have to admit it I am a bit of a dork. I love Star Wars, Star Trek and lots of comics . I worked in a comic book store for awhile in college. I have gone to comic book conventions and sci fi conventions... and Harlan Ellison once told me I looked exactly like Neil Gaiman's "Death". And I wasn't even trying to dress like her.

Not only will I see the new Star Trek on opening night... but I am counting down to the Watchmen movie. ( And the final half season of Battlestar Gallactica)

I might as well been saying "once in band camp..."

I saw the preview for it when I caught "The Dark Knight" in the Tropicana's IMAX screen. I won't see "Watchmen" on anything less than an IMAX screen.

Funny, I found the Watchmen trailer on You Tube opening weekend of the Batman movie. Was that you?

What's the Tropicana?

Oh I knew about that one --- I was hoping it was some awesome Charlotte thing I never heard of. I love Atlantic City, though.

What do you think of the Harrah's casino out west near Asheville?

Don't get excited. It ain't much. Slots are tight and the whole area depresses me.

Ani, you think its worth it for a long weekend? Are there restaurants & entertainment, etc.? DH and I thought about going for our anniversary, but then scrapped it when there weren't any deals.
