Lisa: A Friend of a Friend

So, I have this friend, TOTALLY not me, who has a hypothetical scenario that she would like a little feedback on. The friend's husband really likes the Lord of the Rings movies. Hey, who doesn't? Anyway, mostly for the benefit of the husband, this friend of mine may hypothetically have purchased some exorbitantly priced tickets to see the midnight showing of the new movie AND the extended versions of the first two movies, in a wacky trilogy extravaganza. There might happen to be gift bags, prizes, and a costume contest. So here's the question. My friend, who has long been a proponent of costumes and "dressing up" in general, is considering making a Lord of the Rings costume and wearing it to this event. Would that make her the biggest nerd ever, to be mocked by friends and family at every opportunity? And if that is the case, should she care?

Would I mock you/her? Yes, almost positively. Should you still do it? YES! Sounds fun. If you're going to partake in this geek-fest, might as well do so thoroughly.

wow - that sounds like fun. that's really cool of your "friend" to do that for her husband. I wish my wife would do that for me. suppose I should wish for a wife first...
I say dress up. you'll regret it if you don't. you know there will be plenty of others dressed up too.

AWESOME. When I went to see Pirates of the Caribbean (sp?) we all dressed up in a hullaballoo of pirate accessories. Not only is is it fun, it is completely worth it and makes the experience memorable.
