And so I prepare for my journey to Utah on Tuesday night. This is going to be the first time I've ever attended a major American film festival (discounting my single-day attendance of the St. Louis International Film Festival back in November), and I'm as nervous as ever--not so much over the movies I'm thinking about seeing once I get there so much as I am over... the airport security.
You're not going to believe this, but as a moviegoer burdened with 20/30 vision, I keep asking myself this dreaded question: should I bring spare contacts? I have no way of knowing if the security guards are going to take them away from me if I try to bring them onboard the plane.
But this is little cause for alarm, surely.
I'm hoping I'll be able to blog daily about the festival, although given my uncertainty about how much computer access I'll have while I'm there (I'm staying with my aunt and uncle), I don't know how that's going to work. I may end up having to save all my recollections for when I get back... but hopefully not! I definitely plan on taking dozens of pictures for everyone's enjoyment.
Is anybody else going? Maybe we'll see each other!
