What a looooong and exciting day! ;c)

First of all, I FINALLY saw OotP, and I LOVED it. Really. Plot holes, cut scenes, differences from the book, and all. I truly think this is my favorite HP so far. I'll do a separate post tomorrow going into more detail about what I liked, but overall, definitely a thumbs up.

Oh, and just for the record? Alec Hopkins=perfect Young Snape. There's more than just the tree scene, and he managed to get across SO much information about this boy with just body language alone (well, okay, and makeup). Impressive, truly. He done good. :c)

BTW, if you go to [livejournal.com profile] alec_hopkins, [livejournal.com profile] ook has posted a couple of sneaky shots of those scenes for your viewing pleasure.

Annnnnd....

We got a new doggy! He's a 1.5 year-old Labrador, and his name is (at the moment, anyway) Spikey. He's an odd mix of black and chocolate, so depending on how the light shines, he can look like either one. The previous owners had two other big dogs in this *tiny* little house, and since he was the youngest, he was at the bottom of the pecking order and was constantly being harassed by the other two. He's also incredibly playful, and the owner just couldn't handle a high-energy dog that needs to be walked and played with on a several-times-daily basis.

I've missed my Zorrodog so much these last months, and I'm thrilled to have a new fuzzbeast to cuddle and run around with. The kids are also nuts about him, so I'm quite sure he'll have LOTS of playtime. :c)

I took some pictures which I will post tomorrow. It's already after 10:00 p,m. here, and I'm exhausted.

We're off today to FINALLY see the film and with lovely serendipity, my Snape t-shirt from Hot Topic arrived in the mail just in time for me to wear it to the theater. :c)

Right afterward, we're going on a sooper sekrit mission to possibly bring home a new four-footed family member! It all depends on whether all the children play well together. That's all I really want to say right now - just in case.

Oh! As an ETA to yesterdays Dinner with Greedo video, I got a nice message from Paul Avery (whom I assume is the Greedo in question!), happily giving permission to post (which was not unexpected), but he also hinted that he might do something else with Alec in the future. I don't know if that's going to pan out, obviously, but it's something to look forward to.

After all, if you're not on YouTube, you're nobody. ;c)
