i have never, ever been good at writing titles for anything, especially blog posts. the title is supposed to be a tease and give you a clue as to what the post is about---hard to do when i have no clue what the post will be about. and yes, i've tried writing the title after writing the post and that doesn't work either.
friday we saw the new harry potter movie. living with the girl, who's read the series forward and backward elebenty hundred times, means we are rarely surprised when we see a hp movie. we know the big events. even so i cried a bit. i am always struck by the scenery and storytelling and i get swept up in it. i love these movies. i liked the teenage dialogue in this one--there was humor and emotion though i don't think there was as much suspense or drama per se. i was glad to see the character of luna again, i like the willowy, there-but-not-there quality of her. i also, despite the events in this movie, still like snape. i always have. maybe it's alan rickman i really like, but i can't help liking snape's character too. oddly enough of all the characters harry's really my least favorite.
we saw the preview for new moon again and yes, i also can't wait to see that, fan girl that i am. we saw a preview for where the wild things are--one of my fave kids books ever---i didn't know they were making it into a movie. it actually looks good.
saturday the weather was gorgeous. sunny and breezy, not too hot, but warm. so nice. the kids swam and i mowed. the hubs worked on refinishing a coffee table that belonged to my gma. he is so sweet on stuff like that. it really means a lot to him to have something like that to pass down to the next generation.
saturday was also the night the boy has been waiting on for weeks. he and the hubs went to a wrestling match. meanwhile the girl and i got pedicures (this place was much better than the one i went to before, where i had my first and only pedi so far. i'm not trying to be racist, but this place was staffed by vietnamese ladies and they were awesome. i was disconcerted a bit by not understanding a word they said to each other though.) and grabbed some food and a movie--he's just not that into you. eh. it was ok. i liked some of the story lines. i liked a lot of the characters.
