What a day. And it's not even done.

Took the kids to see Harry Potter this morning. Not a touch of line for the 10:40 showing in 3-D. I will say this: see it in 3-D (normally I can take or leave it,) bring tissues, and go to the bathroom during the trailers. I have a headache from crying. Oh, and not having breakfast. (McGonagall!! I love her. LOVE. Wish her part was larger, but I understand.)

#2 said as the credits rolled, "Now I have nothing to look forward to for the rest of my years," in the most dejected voice ever. Awww, we have had the best memories made from Harry Potter moments as a family. No matter what, I am grateful for that. (And Weasley is my King.)

I have the next Glee recap up, it's the one where Jesse St. James shows up and Idina Menzel starts her story-arc as the rival coach. I love her and made a cocktail in her honor, the Elphaba-tini. It's green, natch. :)

I have to go grocery shopping and it's 105 degrees, it was 108 yesterday, not including the heat index. Oy. We are in some serious drought conditions here in Texas. (I still manage to have a green lawn and flowers without running the sprinklers. Go me! *g*) Oh, the point was that I don't want to be driving in this heat and lugging sacks of food, but everyone's all "I'm hungry" and they refuse to eat the pets. Way to think of the environment, kids.

OH! Exciting gaming talk: I finally have become hip to Oblivion. The Mr. and I stayed up way too late getting acquainted with that game. Dude. Bad. Ass. And you can clearly have completely different experiences playing it from the start, depending on how you build your character. THAT is how you make a game, folks. If you were ever into DnD, and you've not played this, you need to get correct, son.

OK, groceries, and then my monk Elf is going goblin-hunting. NERD ALERT!

#2 is so wonderfully dramatic!

Day number 32 over a hundred. Yesterday the heat index was 105. I have to walk up to a local bar to see a friend's band and you know if I'm not looking forward to heading to a bar, having a beer and seeing a good band, there is something terribly wrong!

Tell #2 that at the London premiere, Jo said "Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home."

I may have teared up. Or something.

Are you talking about Elder Scrolls Oblivion? Because the next installment, Skyrim is coming out in November: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PjqsYzBrP-M

The music is especially epic!

Re: Oblivion!
I am! I didn't know there was another Oblivion. We're super excited to get Skyrim this fall, since we'll probably not be done with ES:O by the time it's released. WOOOT!

Re: Oblivion!
You may play through the entirety of Oblivion before Skyrim comes out, but there is NO SUCH THING as being done with Oblivion. I've been playing it since 2007 and still get just as much enjoyment out of it as I did when it first came out. The only thing about it that makes me sad are the useful bugs they took out of it when they would upload their patches.

I've only been to two 3D movies and, in both cases, found that it rather distracted from the movie. Just curious: What makes you say so emphatically that it's worth it for this one? (Note: I'm ok with spoilers, having read the books.)

McGonagall was indeed awesome, but it was Neville, Ron and Snape who stole the entire show for me...

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
