“I saw the film again a couple of nights ago at the premiere and…my God, my lips are like the lips of a horse, kind of distending independently away from my face and trying to encompass the lower half of hers.” D. Radcliffe, on his kissing scene.

Also, HP comes out SO SOON. I hope you are as excited as I am. I’m taking full advantage of NYC and going to see it in IMAX. Not midnight, because I have to work the next day and these days I can’t function on three hours of sleep, but…IMAX on Friday. I need to buy my ticket now, I think.


I chose this picture because I laugh every time I see it when I’m out. Dearest Ronald looks so intense here, but all I remember from the book is him being, well, this bumbling, not very good Quidditch player. I mean, he tries real hard, but…never quite makes it.

And all of these posters show Ron like, well, what I think he probably saw in the Mirror of Erised in their first year. Which is not where Ron ended up. Kind of.

I agree about the poster- completely Erised. I can’t wait. I’m going to the midnight showing (of course) with James, David, and Olivia.

I will probably see it again for $3 at Tinseltown Thursday morning too. I feel obligated to go to the midnight showings but they are also very loud and sometimes you miss important lines due to whooping & hollering (Remember “You may not like him, Minister, but you can’t deny: Dumbledore’s got style.”)

We missed the next 10 lines, because of that stupid line. Boo.

Anyway, I don’t know if you recall my grandemochafrappacino xanga from high school but I just found something and pulled it over that I wrote when book 6 was coming out that want to post in conclusion to this monster-comment.

Rebekah, I do actually remember reading that. And I also remember loving it.

I also remember that time at work today that I read it again and laughed out loud.

I love that song. And I remember it, too.

I get to see it for free a day or two before it comes out. But there’s a very strong possibility I will probably pay to see it in IMAX also. Because I can here, and it would be AWESOME.
