Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 113
March 18, 2014
Joanna and Jocelyn at Veronica Mars movieSo have you watched the Veronica Mars movie yet? It is only playing at one theater in all of South Carolina, but luckily it's in Columbia where my brother lives. Even though he doesn’t get the Veronica Mars hype, he agreed to play host to his excited sisters. So I drove an hour and a half up from Charleston, and my sister drove an hour and a half down from Greenville, and we were there Friday morning for the very first screening in SC. 
 
I think there were only about 40 people in the theater, but considering it was a work/school morning, that’s not too shabby. And everyone there was obviously a huge fan, laughing at all the inside jokes, so it was a ton of fun. 
 
As a fan of the show, I was so excited to see Veronica back in action. And as a Kickstarter backer, I couldn’t be more proud of how my money was spent. Five million is still a very small budget for a movie, but you couldn’t tell that from the top-notch production values. And the script was funny, suspenseful, and entertaining – everything I loved about the Veronica Mars series. Rob Thomas and his talented team did an amazing job, and I can’t wait to see the stories they have planned for Veronica’s continuing adventures, whether it’s another movie, novels, or whatever other way they come up with for sharing her story. 
 
15 Minute Tweet TalesIn comparison, my 15 Minute Tweet Tales seem very amateurish, but here they are anyway:
 
3/12 – Venting whiskey fumes, she upbraids his terrible cooking, but getting items from the grocery store is tough since he's too young to drive.
 
3/13 – They mock her persnickety way of organizing office supplies until the day she spots an extra pen that is actually a competitor’s bug.
 
3/14 – After watching Superman, he grabs a red towel and heads to apt. roof to volplane into city. Luckily his mom catches him before he jumps.
 
3/15 – He donates his fortune to the instauration of the library because as the books decayed through the years so did the town's prospects.
 
3/16 – Each day she secretes a quarter from her dad's change. Too small to notice, but it adds up to a bus ticket when she needs to escape.
 
3/17 – Her fallacious explanation implicates her brother. They don't buy it. She blames the dog. Nope. She's the one with frosting on her chin.
 
3/18 – He falls in love when the sylph soars through the air. His parents forbid him from marrying a trapeze artist. His heart stops flying.
 
Play along and write tweet tales for the above words. If you’re willing to share, post them on twitter with the hashtag #15tt or add them below in the comments because I’d love to read them. Any thoughts about this week's tweet tales or #15tt words?
