Happy Sunday everyone! Right now, it is scorching hot in Chicago, even by the lake. Let’s just say, I’m not a happy camper.
But before it got hot, something very special happened, I lost my Harry Potter virginity.
Yes, that is correct and probably a tad inappropriate, but it’s true.
Before Friday, I had never seen a Harry Potter movie (in full) or read any of the books. And as of today, I have seen one of the movies. *insert heavenly music*
Despite my lack of Hogwart’s knowledge, I went with TC and two friends to see a very early Friday screening (aka 12:01 a.m.) in the burbs. It may be a long way to go for a movie, but there is good reason.
That theater is P-I-M-P.
Our theater had “premium” seating with a full recliner, blanket to keep me warm, pillow and a waiter to bring us free popcorn and drinks.
It was magical and I took advantage of EVERY SINGLE THING. I was at full recline with pillow to keep my head up (also so I don’t fall asleep) and blanket snuggled around me like a Glo Worm. I just needed to figure out how to grab my drink without moving. I should have left a comment card that said, “need longer straws.”
Anyhow, here is a silly photo of me tickled pink with joy over my theater seating. Hilarious.
So what did I think of the movie? I liked it. And I would see it again, after I catch up on the other movies and reconsider cracking open the books. Even though I knew little of what was going on, I still enjoyed it but more context will help me love it more.
Also, there was one part where tears were streaming down my face so hard I could barely see. Clearly, my waiter needed to be by my side to wipe those up. It was “premium” seating after all.
And the trailer for the Dark Knight Rises? Whoa, cannot wait.
How was your weekend? Did you see Harry Potter too?
