Sometimes I manage to go and see movies in the theatre. This was the case when I joined my sister for a viewing of the last Harry Potter movie a week ago. We were as giddy as two 8 year old boys as we took our stadium-style seats and stuffed the first greasy handfuls of popped corn into our gaping maws.

It was good- probably my favorite of the series, and I didn’t get bored, even at the 3/4 point, when I usually get fidgety and annoy the shit out of the person sitting next to me. But usually by then I am really uncomfortable and my hair keeps itching my ear, and then my hand falls asleep, and I picture lice bugs on the back of my seat, and I smooth my eyebrows and then I need chapstick and then I can’t stop glaring at the woman texting across the aisle, hoping she can sense my distaste. I’m surprised I don’t get backhanded more often in a theatre.

Now I will treat you to my thoughts of the movie. No reviews. Lucky for you I will never video blog, or I would so read this next part in a Snape voice.

My predictions for break-out stars:

Luna Lovegood (Evanna Lynch)

Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton)

Dobby the house elf. I would bet money that he’ll show up somewhere, in some future show or cartoon or maybe as the next president.

A list of items I would like to have from the movie:

1. Stone warriors that can come to life and protect me from bad guys.

2. A flying dragon to guard my treasures.

3. A dutch master painting with living subject matter.

4. A house elf to do my bidding.

5. Harry’s “wand” if you know what I mean. OH!

The real reason for this post was to show off the set I designed for some Harry Potter bedding when the first movie came out. I have just spent hours looking for it, to no avail. You know when you get so fixated on finding something that you waste half of a day looking for it? So annoying, but ultimately you end up finding all sorts of other cool things that are much more nostalgic fun.

In any event, the set I designed had crusty old walls, stones over a big old wooden door, stone floor, an owl I spray painted white, smoke machine, and I think a big old wooden castle window. It was the tits. Plus I got to hire a boy model who resembled H.P.

Here is a drawing instead.

    You wrote, "It was the tits." Oh dear.

    Yet another phrase I must incorporate into my daily diction.

    haha-love the picture. I loved the movie, though my audience experience was slightly annoying. Teenagers everywhere. and they were obnoxious. Thanks for stopping by on my SITS day!
