Scary Harry (and I'm not talking full frontal Harry!)

We went to see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix the IMAX Theater at the Science Museum (Science!). I swear, if you don't enjoy this magical franchise there must be something wrong with you. Just arriving you could feel the anticipation in the crowd. On our way down to the theater, there was even a staff member with the cutest little owl (maybe 6-8 inches). Once in line, everyone was so excited. There were definitely more nerdy "adults" in line than kids. But those kids had something we didn't have...WANDS! They all had these fancy homemade wands with them; brightly colored ribbons and pipe cleaners and glitter, oh my!
After watching the movie being threaded onto this cool Imax contraption, we were finally let it. This being my first Imax movie, I was very excited. Holy mother of pearl...that was one awesome experience! Although I thoroughly enjoyed it, I feel like I still need to see it on a regular screen. I was a little disconcerted at first. I didn't know where to focus my attention- there was so much going on. Science!
It's definitely a dark movie. And for those of us who have read the books, it's only going to get darker. I will say this- I want the hanging plates from Professor Umbridge's office and is it just me or is Ron Weasley growing into a real looker!

On a side note: I will get to use some magic myself. Thanks to our wonderful Wiccan friend (hi M!), I'll be doing a house cleansing based on her instructions. I am psyched!

Hi Tere! It's M. I think we should become parapsychologists and do some ghost hunting. Call me if you need me. Damn we could have had some freaking cool business if we had chosen different career paths - you could have prepared the body, I could have conducted the service! I've actually done a couple of passings. One was my cousin who died prematurely of colon cancer (open casket) the other was my dear teacher (cremation) xox!
