little review

Harry Potter and the Opening Day Squee

I have seen HP:POA and am in celebrate mode, not analyze mode, so I will just note the things I absolutely loved and talk later about the things I only liked. Collapse )

I also had an utterly lovely morning chatting with perkypaduan (who saved our seats in line), vertigo66 (my oldest friend in any fandom, and one of my oldest friends in life), gblvr (who brought us HP candy), meri_oddities (whom I knew ages ago in Trek fandom and have not seen literally in years) and a friend of theirs. By coincidence I also ran into one of my old friends from Voyager fandom and her sister while we were waiting to go into the theater, and it always makes me so happy when I run into people from older fandoms in newer ones, especially if we've been out of touch for too damn long, as was the case with several people here.

Four of us went to grab Thai food afterward (being minions of gblvr, we have concluded that we must always go out for Thai food if she wishes). And even though we all 'ship different pairings it was a most harmonious outing.

More coherency later, hopefully, after the annual end-of-year bash at my kids' school.
