Snakes on a Thursday?

Just out of curiosity: anybody planning to go to "Snakes on a Plane" tonight? A bunch of the local theaters here (and, no doubt, around the country) have 10 p.m. and midnight showings, and there's a part of me that feels like, if I'm going to see "Snakes," it should be tonight or never. On the other hand, I'm an old suburban man who's often contemplating sleep around 10, so...

Thoughts?

I would, but I promised a friend's kid I would take him to see it this weekend when it will be equally packed, I'm sure.

You should definitely go. It will be an event. And you will not want to see it under any other circumstances (assuming you even have any desire to see it now).

I've been following the movie's progress since July of last year. I have no idea why. Oddly enough, I probably won't see it. Like Indiana Jones, I am horribly afraid of snakes, and I don't think I'd enjoy spending time with them in a darkened theater.

I was going to go see it tomorrow night, but I've had a cold all week and will probably pass.

And since you never linked to the column, I need closure on something: At Katie Couric's press conference, did they make you ask her about her wardrobe again, or did somebody else take you off the hook?

Actually somebody else (don't remember whether it was another reporter or the CBs publicist) started off by asking the wardrobe question in a jokey tone, and as Katie groaned, I couldn't resist saying, "That's my line." This led to Katie tuning out everyone else to have a conversation with me about why I asked it, and just as I was maybe making headway, one of the other reporters, annoyed, said, "That's enough out of you, Alan" and proceeded to ask 17 questions in a row.

As we were saying our goodbyes, Katie said, "When I'm picking out my wardrobe for the first night, I'll think of you." She was smiling when she said it, but not necessarily in a good way.

In my mind, the annoyed reporter is the same one you fought with over Lauren Graham;) It's a wonderful little soap opera I've written in my head about two TV critics who are archenemies.

Sadly, it was someone else entirely. I seem to have developed a real gift for annoying other members of the press lately, which is odd, because I'm allegedly a very nice guy. At least, that's what my daughter keeps telling me.
