Earlier this week, Mommy Dearest took us out for dinner and offered to pay for Evan to go to the movies so that he will have done something this summer besides sleep. :-)
I stopped taking him to the theater because he would talk constantly and I can't pause like at home. It's too expensive for me to spend money on a movie that 1) I'll miss part of and B) I'll probably buy on DVD anyway.
But we went to the NEW 10 screen theater yesterday and saw Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.
When I read the book, I was very irritated that Dumbledore had died, but since it's been years and I was prepared for it (and I never really got attached to this Dumbledore like I had with Richard Harris) I was okay with it.
The movie was LOUD. I knew I should have brought my ear plugs, but of course I forgot. I ended up stuffing napkins in my ears.
We were the only people in the theater.
I swear, Evan changed seats 327 times. After the movie was over, he said "Well, we were the only ones in there."
It's like he thought each seat would be different or something (they were rocking seats, just like the old theater).
It was nice to go into a theater that wasn't sticky on the floor and didn't smell like feet, LOL.
I did NOT like the fact that they have stairs in there instead of a ramp. Very handicapped unfriendly, IMO.
I moved back as far as I could so that it wouldn't be so effing loud. I'm surprised I'm not deaf.
As far as the movie goes, if you liked the other Harry Potters, you'll love this one too. There were lots of funny bits, like when Ron eats chocolates that have been dosed with love potion.
Ginny (The girl Harry eventually ends up with) was as tall or taller than Harry. LOL! They didn't know he'd be short when they cast him 9 years ago, LOL. Whatever. Short men need love too, I guess. ;-)
That is all for now.
