DDR Voldemort dances on your face!

Lots to post, but only fifteen minutes...

Eh, I'll probably go over.

Hey, everybody, it's time to play everyone's favorite game, "What Exciting Affliction Has Jessica Developed This Time?"

But all of this was totally, totally made up for by ORDER OF THE PHOENIX!!! I got to see it at the Omni Theater in the Museum of Science and History. I didn't realize until last night that I hadn't been to a movie there in eleven years, so it was very exciting. I was only slightly upset that they didn't play the traditional helicopter short at the beginning (which, OMG, has its own Wikipedia page!) But once the movie started, that was just a minor detail.

In my opinion, this one is the best movie adaptation so far. It stayed truest to the book, it actually CAPTURED the sense of urgency, the kid's emotions, the secrecy of the Order, all that good stuff, rather than just dance around it. Yeah, they left a lot out (*cough*DOBBY*cough) but the book is six billion pages long, and for the stuff the left in, they nailed it. Luna was PERFECT, and while I still feel that this lady would have been the best Umbridge EVIR, the lady they got captured her character wonderfully.

Plus, this movie actually made me believe the Ron/Hermione thing, and might maybe throw me into that camp. MAYBE.

In short, I'm seeing it again tonight.

And apparently this is the first time I've ever posted on July 11th!

A few public apologies...ignore this post.

Rita: I'm sorry I listened to my mom and started blowing you off instead of hanging out. You were a cool person who probably needed a friend and I was a jerk who was too scared to tell my mom she was wrong.

Heather: I'm sorry I didn't go to that last concert with you. I should have done what I wanted to do instead of worrying what other people thought, and we bought those presents together, and now I'll never know if they got delivered. And I hate thinking of how you must have felt driving all that way just to read my note.
