Fan Happening in Finland - Xoanon @ 17:45 PST
I arrived at Tennispalatsi at 6 pm on Sunday (the advance sales began at 10 am on Monday 3th Dec). There were about 15 people in the line, some of them had been there since Saturday morning or so. We had a lot of stuff with us: a tent, sleeping bags, a table hockey game, lotsa food, cd player, chairs (and, well, some alcohol too).

It was really cool to be there. Finnkino (the theatre company) provided us electricity and gave us cookies and warm drinks. In the morning when we woke up, the line reached the other corner of the large theatre complex, it was about 200 m(?). When they let us in, some guy with a tie welcomed us and about 50 first people in the line got cool posters! There was no limit for the amount of tickets purchased so one guy bought 30 of 'em...

My 16 tickets are, of course, to the premiere at Tennispalatsi 1, 19th Dec at 0:01 am.
