late adopter

Wow. Y'all sure did have my back on the chopstick usage! I had always thought that Awkward Chopsticks™ was a rare and lonely affliction. Evidently it is more common than I ever imagined. It knows neither age nor geographic restrictions! Be strong, my friends. You are in good company.

Anyway, have you seen the new Harry Potter movie yet? I can't wait to see it. However, that may not happen soon. It's hilarious how late to everything I constantly am. For example, I read the Harry Potter series a couple of months ago, I'm currently reading Lord of the Rings and I just signed up for a Flickr account two weeks ago. Also? The car I drive now is the only one I've ever had with power steering. True story! I like to make sure things are proven before I jump in with both feet.

Or something.

I'm sure I won't be seeing the movie until I can get it from Netflix, since my children (as charming as they are) are a real bottleneck when it comes to seeing movies in theaters.

But regardless, I don’t remember ever being as engaged in a series as I was with Harry Potter. I loved how the plot grew as the characters matured, I found the storylines compelling and Severus Snape was one of my favorite characters in recent fiction. So complex and intriguing.

So if you’ve seen Half-Blood Prince, give me your two cents! That might just be enough to motivate me to see it with the rest of America… rather than two years later like I usually do.

I'm going tomorrow night! Excitement is an understatement. I'll report back promptly...

Harry Potter is our "movie for the year," meaning that is the one movie we have committed to seeing in the theater with an actual babysitter (or grandma) at home with the kid.

And, only recently was I ever able to use chopsticks and I still do it wrong. I had a friend who was a pro and she said it was because her mom taugher her, "Just in case she was ever on a date and needed that particular skill."

Planning on taking my sisters rugrats to see it very soon.

I've been lurking for awhile, but had to comment, b/c, well Harry Potter!

We went and saw the movie at midnight on Tuesday and loved it! I had one big Issue in regards to book-to-movie, but overall really loved it. Nobody does Snape better than Alan Rickman and Helena Bonham Carter was born to play Bellatrix (which are things we knew from all the other movies, but still it bears repeating). It's really funny. Nice mix of dark and light.

Okay, I'll stop rambling now.

P.S. Love the blog!
