Ronnie the Bear

Hello all,

So last night we went to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. I dressed up as Harry, of course, wearing my Gryffindor tie and a nice swooshy black cloak which billowed at all the appropriate moments. I even shaved in order to go in character (yes dri, I am sorry, the beard is no more [at least for a few days]). We were a sizable group, Erin (as Hermione), Ashley (polyjuce potioned person), Jason, Kohei (slytherine student), Kendra (Luna), Margaret, Arena (ravenclaw student), and Elizabeth, making up a group of muggles and wizards. We went to dinner together and then arrived at the midnight showing.

Was it a good movie? I'll let you decide that for yourselves whenever you happen to see it. I will say that I loved it more than any other of the Harry Potter movies, and enjoyed myself immensely. I've never been a big fan of the movies in general (much preferring the books), but I was pleased with how this one turned out. Maybe it was simply the going with friends, the re-reading of several of the books, and the general air of anticipation and excitement for the last finale of a chapter of childhood, but I had fun.

Other developments will be posted when I am less sleep deprived, i. e. not this week.
