So this past Wednesday (May 5, 2010) was the Marvel Employee Friends and Family premiere of Iron Man 2. When these premieres happen, I have to leave work early to head up to NYC to meet up with the boy! Hooray!
This time wasn’t as much fun. The night before, the lock to our front door started malfunctioning. We have a touch pad smart lock which is wonderful because we never need a key to the front door. This is also a major pain in the ass because we DON’T HAVE a key to the front door. The lock decided to start beeping constantly, much like a smoke detector does when it goes off, because something was wrong. I almost missed the movie premiere waiting for our landlord to come over and help us fix the lock or replace it. He managed to get it to quiet down so that I was able to get to the premiere! Yay.

I love going to the Ziegfeld Theater for these premieres. It was a lot of fun and I enjoyed the movie. It is not as bombastic as the first one but it does set the stage for the Avengers movie that is due out in 2012. It also sets the stage for the Thor movie coming out next year. Cannot wait. RDJ was awesome as usual and Gwyneth just does an amazing job as Pepper Potts.
So we get home from the premiere around 2 a.m. on Thursday. Lock has started beeping again. I am furious. We remove the batteries and go to bed. I take the boy to the train the next morning and we just shut the front door and can’t lock it. Great. Makes me feel super secure. I finally get the bright idea to clean off the connector springs, an example of which is below thanks to my TI-89 graphing calculator:
I cleaned the springs off with some rubbing alcohol and amazingly, that fixed the problem. So we can come and go as we please and have our apartment secured! Yay!
I’ve finished some spinning (had to make some room after recent fiber stash expansion) and hope to get some more plying done this weekend. I’m also gearing up for another Yarnissima test knit and am working with Heather on some sock test knitting. So hopefully on Monday, I’ll have some spinning FOs to talk about! Have a great weekend!
