Finally got my Harry Potter book on Saturday. I ordered too late to get it on release date. So far I’ve yet to read any spoilers, thank goodness. This is the first time I haven’t just dedicated all of one day to reading the book and finishing it. Instead I’m reading it a little at a time so as not to consume the whole thing in one sittting, and perhaps remember some of the details. Last time I had to re-read it again right afterwards because i’d already lost half the details.
I’m currently about 320 pages in or so. Very engaging!
So far it would seem i’ve lost 5 pounds, but I don’t weigh in until tomorrow night, so we’ll see. According to my scale at home though, 5 pounds. Water weight or not, i’ll take it. I’m not picky. According to my pedometer I walked over 1.5 miles yesterday just walking around in the office and such. This seems quite high, so I may have to reset the stride length or something.
I had some weight watchers’ cereal this morning. NOT great. not so bad i can’t eat it, but not good. tolerable i’d say.
Oh! Watched V for Vendetta last night. Didn’t think I’d care for it, but it was great! Although, halfway through the movie i figured out that V was Agent Smith (aka Elrond) which was a bit distracting. (You hear that Mr. Anderson?… That is the sound of inevitability… It is the sound of your death… Goodbye, Mr. Anderson…) (Men? Men are weak. The Blood of Numenor is all but spent, its pride and dignity forgotten. It is because of Men the Ring survives. I was there, Gandalf. I was there three thousand years ago. I was there the day the strength of Men failed.) He does have a great voice though. It’s just a little too distinctive perhaps. Anyhow, yes it’s been out awhile, but if you haven’t seen it, I recommend it. I found it very well acted and well written and beautifully filmed. Natalie Portman excelled, as did Hugo Weaving in my opinion. This is one I will probably buy.
Shhh! The safe word is nationalism…. or fascism; they are, after all, much the same.
