Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

The movie was wonderful. It was everything I had hoped it would be. Of all the books, has always been my second favorite (book 6 gets first place because it explained why the adults stood aside while Harry and company stood in the line of fire time and time again).

Anyhoo...back to the movie.

It's not often you can go to a movie on opening night and spend less than $20 for three people. It's unheard of, but I somehow managed it tonight. The University was sponsoring a movie night at my favorite theatre; all you had to do was show a student ID and you got two tickets free and two coupons for a medium drink and popcorn. I only had to buy candy and one ticket. The ticket cost me $10, which was fine because the show was sold out and only the University held tickets, and the candy cost me $6. $16.00 total. I can't get over it!

Standing in line with a four-year-old and a seven-year-old for 30 minutes wasn't fun. Restless doesn't even begin to describe it. Eventually we got into our seats...and only had a twenty minute wait. Again...restlessness. Figeting and anxiousness.

Of course, you know I had to take the little one to the bathroom at least once during the movie. Fifteen minutes later the oldest has to go (I made him hold it because the movie had maybe fifteen minutes left).

The boys had proclaimed this their favorite HP movie, and have demanded its purchase tomorrow. When I explained it wasn't possible there was great disappointment but I think they'll live.

All in all, what a great night!
