Transformers and Harry Potter

"Experience is that marvelous thing that enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again."
Franklin P. Jones
On the 5th of july my sunday school class had planned to go see Transformers for a class party, well they went and forgot me. Let me back up.
The sunday that we planned it I was very reluctant to go see Transformers. Yes I was into it as a kid but that was Beast Wars and I found the newer ones to be just dumb. Monday I told my friends and they were somewhat sympathetic. Then we got together again on wensday, The 4th of july, to do some fireworks. Kay and I were talking while watching the fireworks and she told me see had gone to see it that day, and really, really liked it. I was then really excited to go see it. Oh and when using fireworks that fire more that one firework, use a weight to hold it down. It is no fun to have fireworks coming straight at you.
Anyway so the next day I get all excited to go to see the movie and get all cute and whatnot. I go to the house where we're supposed to meet at the time I was told and no one was there. So I decide "maybe he's running an errand" so I walk around the block. Meeting a friend who offered me a job. Wahoo. Anyway so I finished walking around the block and went back to the house. My teacher's wife answered the door and said "Oh they left at 11:50." I was pissed off. Had they told me the wrong time intentially? Did they not want me to go? Grrrr.
Jan and Kay came over that night to do fireworks with my family. Cousin Kara also showed up and there was much hugging involved with that. My friends were super jumpy with the fireworks, which is understandable with what happened the night before. After fireworks Kay and Jan stayed and watched yet another episode of Dark Angel. It's so good to get friends addicted to the same stuff as you. :} then left.
Friday, I woke up to Kara giving me a hug, that was nice. I got dressed and Klah, Kara and I went to Ben's family's house to have makeovers. That was fun but interesting. There wasn't much small talk between the two familys but that's okay.
Anyway on the way back to the house I got a voicemail. this is how it went. " AAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLAAAAAAAAAA" in a singsong voice, then laughing "my dad's yelling at me to stop, call me to see the movie." Oh how I love my friends.
I called Kay back and went to her house, then to Jan's to help her clean up sheetrock. I'm so glad that my family get's along. I don't think I could stand having a brother like Jan's. Then off to the movies it was! Did that sound Yodaish to anyone?
Transformers is soooo cool! There are gapping plot wholes and a scene where it goes from light to night really fast but otherwise it is a really good action movie...... I want to see it again.
Bacholerette party for Klah was interesting. Not sure I want one for my wedding.... Next day was the Wedding and Klah looked so beautiful and happy.
THe family party was fun as said before in previous post.
then yesterday, my life is really, really dull when friends are gone to girls camp, I went to see Harry Potter 5. It's good, but skips giant skips but what can you expect from a movie based on a book? THere were plot holes but if you've read the book you understood what was going on. Loved the fight between Lord Moldy and Dumbledore. It was full of interesting spells.
I think my out of the new characters my favorites were Luna and Tonks. Both done really well. Well I think tonks was done well she only had about 10 minutes total of screen time and that's being generous. But I really like the actress who played her. Luna's actress did a really good job of being far away and spacey.
Anyway sorry for the long post.
