It's A Christmas Movie!!!

For some curious reason, every year around this time, Harry Potter movies are played along with other holiday movies.  Why?  Well, as Rich would tell you, since Christmas is depicted in each movie, it stands to reason that they would each be a Christmas movie.

Movie One:  Shows Hagrid bringing a tree to be decorated in the grand hall of Hogwarts.  We see Harry delight in receiving his first ever, real Christmas presents.  Hermione even wishes them a "Happy Christmas."  On and on in each movie Christmas is depicted in one form or another.  Each movie spans a year of time, so naturally Christmas will show up.  So what am I babbling about anyway???  I finally got to see it!!!  Yeah that one.  Up there!!  **squeal!**  Sadly we didn't get to see it in IMAX.  But we so totally could have!  How?  Welllll

See I am a bit of a scatter brain.  I heard the guy say HP on the left.  Forget that this theatre has 16 cinemas.  Forget that HP is playing in two of them.  I just B-lined it to the one that said HP!  But's already started.  What the heck??  Well this was theatre 7 we were supposed to go in 4.  The movie had not been on long, and we totally could have snuck into the IMAX theatre.  But we went where we belonged.

It was awesome.  And in IMAX I imagine more so!!  It was getting so close to the end and my bladder was screaming at me.  I have only read the book once.  And that was 3 years ago.  I don't want to miss ANYTHING!  But man, I really had to go!!!  So I finally couldn't take it anymore.  I took off and made it to the bathrooms in record time.  Then, just a quickly headed back out.  But where is my theatre.  Shoot...I am totally turned around here!  And I am missing my movie!!!  GRRR.  Salvation.  An employee.  I ask him where is theatre 7.  Yes, I said 7.  What is my hang up anyway?  I went in...happily....until I was in an empty theatre and a blank screen.  What the heck?   FOUR!  Theatre FOUR!  D'oh!   I bolted back to right theatre and found I was a little lost.  I figured enough out, but during the credits I made Rich give me the play by play of what I missed.  Oh and for the record, HP7 remains true to form and Christmas came.  So this one is a Christmas movie.  The next one...nope.  It's the second half of the year.

I can't believe I have to wait til July now!  UGH!  It ended spectacularly in an awful place.  Makes it worse.  But that is what they want.  It follows the book pretty closely.  I even went back and read some places, where I wasn't sure if that is what happened or how.  It was a good treat.  What movies have you seen recently?



When I was about 13, I was treating myself to a chocolate covered cherry.  I guess I got a little carried away with the goodness of it, that or I was talking.  And I began to choke.  It was not one of those hack a second or two, then gulp some air in, no this was heavy duty choking.  I remember my mom doing the Heimlich and nothing.  Nothing.  I heard her shout for my Dad.  I was okay after that.  I am not sure if I lost conscience-nous or not. But I am guessing I did.

I have been hospitalized three times to have something removed.  And each time, the doctor's made me name it and sent me home with it.    So no, I haven't been hospitalized four times, and despite my track record, I have only been in the hospital to give birth.

I was in high school and during a drama class I got very hot and light headed and I almost passed out.  The teacher had me escorted to the nurse.  I probably hadn't eaten that day is my guess. 

1.  While I worked at the Jelly Belly Factory I met Lisa Welchel (Facts of Life) and gave her and her kids a private tour.
2.  While working at Weight Watchers I was featured in the magazine for a success story
3.  While working at Michael's Arts and Crafts, I did demonstrations for fabric and tole painting.

Ok, first of all I'm glad you enjoyed HP. I am trying to get the kids to the theater to see Tangled and the other fun kid ones coming out.

As for your lies, I'm going to say #3 is your lie. No particular reason, just a hunch.

And that is why I don't usually get drinks during movies. I hate having to walk over people in the dark.

So glad you got to see it even with some hiccups.

I am going to guess three also

Now I'm going to have to rewatch all the movies to find Christmas.

I have not seen HP yet but I'm anxious to. I think #2 is the fib!
