Please be sure to visit the White House webpage and click on "A Very Beazley Christmas." PUPPIES! However, at the end, First Lady Laura Bush wishes the viewer "a happy holiday." OH NOES, WHAT WOULD BILL O'REILLY THINK?!

Thoughts on "Goblet of Fire" movie: Okay, they seriously need to start making these movies longer. I almost got whiplash from watching it. The movies have always made me a bit uncomfortable....sometimes it's fun to watch, like, "Oh, that's how they did that!" but to me, it feels nothing like Harry Potter. That said, I did like Cedric. I also very much enjoyed Voldemort. Hermione was very pretty, 'though with her teenybopper clothing and what-not, it wasn't as OMGHERMIONE as it was in the book. Radcliffe could actually act in this movie, which was a pleasant change. Ron didn't annoy me either. Nor did the Weasley twins. Ginny was so cute at the ball!
I like it more than movies 1 and 2 for sure. I'd have to watch movie 3 again to rate them against each other, though. I liked the PoA movie quite a bit, actually, but I believe I've only seen it once.
I liked the movie because it was well-made and the scenes that did occur were pretty much spot-on. It's just that it misses all of the side-action that makes Harry Potter what it is. Ah, well.
I almost don't want to see the 5th movie, just because I loved the book so much....

So, this afternoon my cellphone made the noise that indicates that I have voicemail. I thought, "Ooooh, new voicemail!" Then it said that I had 15 messages. I figured Eric or Heather or somebody had called and left assinine messages (would my friends do that?! No!), but when I listened to them, they're all from Thanksgiving break through a couple of days ago - all NEW messages. What the heck?! Receiving a voicemail two weeks after it's left doesn't help me much! I'll have to call the Sprint people from where I got the phone....this is not okay!

We found a house for next year, but I'm feeling all conflicted about it. One of the bedrooms is quite small and it's on a busy street and kind of far from campus, but it's a good deal, laundry machine/dryer included, basically unlimited free parking, $1,000 allowance for heat...making a decision is impossible, so if you have any thoughts, feel free to share.

I went to Borders to read tonight, so I guess that was okay. I feel really bored with everything, and I don't know if that's why I've felt so effed up lately or not. I mean, when I feel crappy, feeling bored is definitely not what I'm thinking about. But I guess I don't want to go into detail there.

I don't know why, but I've felt progressively ill all day, and now, after sleeping in my bed for a couple of hours, I feel weak all over. My stomach keeps contorting and making noises, and I feel nauseated, and like I couldn't lift two pounds if I tried. YES, because what I really need right now is to be sick.

I want desperately for finals to be over and for break to be here, but even when it is, will I feel any better? I don't think so.

I agree. GoF was in and of itself a good movie. However, at times it did not feel like I was watching a Harry Potter movie. IMO Prisoner of Azkaban was better at capturing the "spirit" of the Harry Potter series.
