I know it's Sunday but ...

I'm sure y'all have noticed, but this hasn't been the best of blogging weeks for me. My mind has been wrapped around other things -- Like the two novels I'm currently working on. So with that in mind, there will be no Feedstore Chronicle this week. I had one in mind but I'm not really in the mood to type up the particulars of Earl's family stump. Most people have have family trees but I'm sure you know enough about Earl to agree there ain't a whole lot of branches on that tree.


Last night me and my wife went to see the latest Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix and I gotta say knowing how the series ends changed the way I watched the movie. There was a good bit of foreshadowing things to come that I never would have noticed before. Overall, the movie is good I rate it a close second behind The Prisoner Of Azkaban amongst the ones that have been made thus far. It did end with on a more upbeat tone and with a bit more optimism than the actual novel and of course a ton of things were only skimmed upon, but a worthy way to spend a couple of hours.


The girl who played Luna Lovegood reminded me a lot of the band camp girl from American Pie. I Think it was her eyes and the inflection in her voice.



Also is it me, or does Hagrid's half brother Grawp look an

awful lot like a steroided up version of Alfred E. Newman?

Funny, I went and saw "Phoenix" the other day (for the second time) and totally viewed it a different way now that I'd read "the end", too. Good. It wasn't just me, then. . .

I liked the movie it was my second time as well. I thought it was wonderful. Luna was really good however I did not see the band camp girl in here shine through like Travis did. Knowing the end I too viewed it differantly.

I haven't seen Order of the Phoenix yet, but I'm looking forward to it. Ends happily, huh? They did that with Goblet of Fire too. I never did figure out how everyone could be so upbeat after Cedric's death.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

LOLOL! Yea, I see what you see when you view the two pictures together. They definitely have some resemblance. (Although I think Grawp is cuter. :o) ) I've only seen Order once but am looking forward to watching it again and can't wait to add it to my DVD collection.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and stop by soon again.

I haven't seen any of the Harry Potter movies. I so often find that when I love the book, the movie disappoints me.

Totally off topic- Travis, you totally got served over at Girls Write Out. Bwahahahahah!

Hey, Travis! Thanks for listing me on blogs you read -- very cool.

BTW, you are one heck of a reader. I can't believe how many books you've read since April 1! Do you ever sleep?
