Which Action Star Are You? Find out @ She's Crafty
I am currently on vacation. OK, so my parents are and I'm just merging my vacation with theirs. What-the-fuck-ever.
I saw Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Askaban the other day. I have not read the first three books so I was very pleased with it. The 2 hours and twenty-something minutes went by very quickly. I was disappointed Lupin left at the end. He seemed like an important character. (God knows Maggie Smith is just a waste of space considering her talent and she returns year after year...) I loved seeing Dawn French as the Fat Lady and it's about time Robert Hardy appears in these things. (Minister of Magic) I did miss John Cleese although if you must cut something his scenes did seem to be rather useless in the first two films. I loved how Emma Watson acted more feminine with her purse and her comment "Is that what my hair looks like from the back?"
I've started reading Goblet of Fire. It's pretty good but the Quiditch scenes are usually the most boring so I can't imagine how this will be done on film...Many people have said this is the worst in the series so there you go...
Yesterday, we went up to Historic Deerfield. I like history more than many my age but that was rather boring. This rather surprising since it's the tricentennial of the Deerfield Massacre where many were killed or captured by Native Americans and taken to New France which is now, course, Canada.
Tomorrow we head for New Hampshire and then Maine.
