Movie Magic

6:01 a.m.

Six. Oh. One.

The sound of a door closing upstairs.

OMFG.

People, again: I had just opened the laptop and had not yet poured a cup of coffee.

This is just not right!

I guess I need to get up at 4:30 to walk the dogs, so I can have the hour from 5 – 6 to write.

I did manage to squeeze out 300 words on the WIP while The Earliest Rising Child in the World was racing moto-cross on his X-Box. (30 minutes, Sara! That was all! I let him spend ONE ticket.)

Then he got buttermilk pancakes and maple syrup.

I don’t know who was more excited about seeing the new Harry Potter today: Young Son or me.

I loved it!!!!

No spoilers … it was just so much fun! From the early scene of everyone grabbing onto the “manky old boot” portkey and spinning through space … to the scary scene in the graveyard where Voldemort comes back to the full embodiment of creepiness and cruelty … I sat there in the dark, so happy to be watching a new Harry Potter movie.

Is it really almost Thanksgiving?

The idea of a big cooking marathon does not appeal to me at the moment. Maybe I’ll just get a turkey breast this year. And maybe I’ll make butternut squash lasagna. Ha! I've got a recipe ...

I have the same early-rising-children-syndrome at my house, quite frustrating... It is like mine can sense how much I want that precious hour and it lures them out of bed.
Glad to hear that the new H.P. is a good one, I'm looking forward to it...
And I hope that it's okay that I friended you, your posts crack me up...not totally sure on the LJ etiquitte there...

Of course! I friended you back. And thanks for the kind words. I do aim to crack up more than cause revulsion.

I highly recommend BOSTON MARKET for their cooked, unstress the holiday turkeys! :)

We seriously talked about going OUT to dinner on T-giving. I've never done that before! Hubs doesn't mind.

But it seems so ... anti-American. And it would probably be expensive. I think I can pull myself together enough to stick a breast in the oven and mash some potatoes. Oh what the hell: and make stuffing ... and cranberry sauce ... and pie ...

I make him wear headphones for the games with the most atrocious song selections, too.

Selfish obsessed woman!

Just got back from the HARRY POTTER film. By far, it's the best yet.

glad it's good
I'm going to see it the first weekend in January. One of my former co-workers and I get together for the HP movies. Can't wait.

Sorry about the writing time being cut short.

Re: glad it's good
Ai yiy yiy! How can you wait that long?!?!

Sneak away, then see it again with the co-worker, feigning surprise.

Writing with children should be a how-to book all on its own! :P

LOVED the new HP! Even blogged about it! Yes, the port key was COOL!!! :D

My chapter would be called, You Need Less Sleep Than You Think.

Or The Dog Hair Can Accumulate For One More Day.

Or That's What Frozen Pizza is For.

You get the idea.

The title of my chapter would be:
You've Only Got Two Hands--Use 'Em For Typing! (The Kids Can Fend For Themselves!)

Hee, hee!
