Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

Last night I went and saw the midnight showing of the new Harry Potter movie with my sister and a friend of ours. My sis and I got to the theater around 9:45, by 10:15 they started seating people. Man, there were a lot of people there!!

So after sitting in the theater for almost 2 hours, the movie finally starts. But wait, something has gone wrong. The lights are flickering on and off, the preview up on the screen keeps starting and stopping.. Whats going on??!! Wheres Harry, Ron and Hermione?

Finally an employee comes in to save the day. They explain that we should not worry, they are NOT experiencing technical difficulties and the movie will start shortly.

The lights dim, the preview comes back on. The next preview plays, wait. Stop. The lights flicker back on, the screen has gone blank. The crowded theater full of Harry Potter fanatics groans. Where's Hagrid, Dumbledore, and Professor Snape?

Another employee walks in. Don't worry folks just a slight snag and all will be good.

5 min later the lights dim, the previews start up. The preview stops. The lights are back on. People are yelling and complaining. Wheres our free popcorn?!!?

By 12:45, we finally get to see our 12:00 showing of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and guess what?! They WERE experiencing technical difficulties!! But the movie was excellent and well worth the wait (we never did get our free popcorn!).

My husband has been off the last 2 days and does not go back to work till Thursday night, with the exception of going in this morning for a training class. He had to be there at 5:30 this morning. Since I had a 45 min drive back home from my sisters house after the movie my husband and I decided to meet close to where he works for breakfast. I am now stuffed and sleepy and extremely happy that I got to see the HP movie!

Since I do not have to work today, I am off to bed to catch some Z's. It has been a really long day!!

Wow that would be so annoying! The wait would have killed me!

N and I aren't able to see it until next Monday. We were going to go opening night but what with Elliot's flu and all, we decided to put it off. Oh well.
