Half Blood Prince

I have to apologize quickly. I haven't written a blog in forever, I just keep procrastinating, and procrastinating.
I haven't given up on the beautiful Hatmione i was working on, but I might have to scrap it and start fresh because 'the cat' is evil.
Last night I went to the premiere of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. I'm so glad it finally happened and the hype for the release is over. I was dying of impatience. I had been counting down for months! Well, my dear friend Louisa and I dressed up for the premiere (the only ones too, so we got some weird looks haha) and it was so much fun. I went as, well just a Gryffindor student but people thought i looked a tad like Hermione (Score!! lol) and Lou Lou dressed up as Tonks! She used temporary dye. I don't have pictures of her, YET! But, here's me dressed up and ready for the premiere!

My thoughts on the film:
The movie as a movie was wonderful. It was thrilling, tear jerking, happy, silly, I laughed, I cried- etc. It was all I wanted and more.
As for living up to the wonder that the book is- well, i'd give it about a "C" grade level. They missed so many details that were key! They added scenes that didn't need to be there, and they just messed around with it too much.
But- you know, I still loved it. You can see that the actors have really grown. They were phenomenal in the movie compared to when they started as little 9-11 year olds. Emma Watson made me cry with her portrayal of Hermione's heartbreak and jealousy :(
Anyways, I can't wait for DH Part one!! :)

Vent #2

I don't care how irritating they are, stubborn, pigheaded or "b****y" they act- When I am a mother I will NEVER curse AT my children. Ever. It's disgusting, volatile, vulgar, and obscene.

Anyways. I'm off to escape and see my best friend, get help with knitting in the round at Wooly Bully, and ESCAPE.

Pardon my mini rant.

Pandora Internet Radio

Is amazing. Natalie uses it much and often, and I finally got around to trying it. It's amazing. And free. It chooses songs that it thinks you would like to listen to based on an artist, song name, or composer. It's AMAZING! Have I said that already? AND FREE! Ahh, just check it out.
