HP - Rita - Reporting with Style

-Edie, are you gay? -Am I gay? I'm ecstatic!

So. Totally. Awesome.

Rowling Says Dumbledore Is Gay

"She added that, in her mind, Dumbledore had an unrequited love affair with Gellert Grindelwald, Voldemort's predecessor who appears in the seventh book."


I blatantly stole the article from Lewis, but it needed to be in my journal.


Now...she just needs to come out and say that Harry and Draco have actually been infatuated with each other for the past 7 years, hence all the tension, and that her "epilogue" (more like the "epilogue of DOOM") was utter poppycock. Oh yeah...and that Sirius and Remus were totally in love (it's even in the movies).

On the agenda for today: movies. Not sure how many or at what times (they don't seem to be lining up very well for me), but I'll most likely head out to Winter Park to see two or three of the following: Lust, Caution, The Assassination of Jesse James..., The Darjeeling Limited.

Also, I might re-dye my hair. Because it's pretty atrocious. The roots are super orange, and the rest is just not a good color for me. I wanted something darker. A nice, deep red. Alas, I might be crawling back to my burgundy...at least I know it works.

I love you too, but I'm gonna mace you in the face!

Days go by quite quickly when they are spent in movie theaters.

Indeed, I was out of the apartment from 1:30pm until 8:30pm. Part of that was drive time and there was an hour between when one ended and the other began, but still.

I did see The Darjeeling Limited, which I found enjoyable and engaging. I really like Adrien Brody, and Jason Schwartzman is just awesome. I recommended it. The companion short film, Hotel Chevalier with Schwartzman and Natalie Portman, is available for free from iTunes (accessible through www.hotelchevalier.com). Director Wes Anderson recommends watching it before seeing The Darjeeling Limited.

I also saw Lust, Caution and the jury's still out. It was a very typical narrative, not overly dramatic nor a sweeping epic, really. It was long to be sure (2 hours, 37 minutes), and felt it at times. I was also disappointed in the ending, and I have yet to come up with a satisfactory explanation for that. That said, it was a captivating story with very interesting characters whose actions left me thinking. It was certainly well acted and well directed.


Also, I find it funny that I was carded buying a ticket for The Darjeeling Limited (apparently I look 16?), but not for Lust, Caution, which is rated NC-17. Then again...it's the Regal versus the Enzian.
