(no subject)

Next time I make something I've never tried before, someone remind me to read the whole recipe and make sure it doesn't take seven freakin' hours to make. I'll be done around 4 a.m. This is bad, given that I will then still need to clean my room and do laundry and somehow get a rough approximation of a full night's sleep before creidieki shows up.

Saw the new Harry Potter today. I thought it was pretty good, but very poorly directed -- the acting was much better in the third movie, even with the same actors, which is definitely the director's fault. Others have commented on the roughness of the scene transitions (just because you can make a graphic or auditory match doesn't mean it logically follows!), and I'm really not sure why Ralph Fiennes is getting so praised for this one. Yes, he's pretty decent, but still over the top. And Michael Gabon was terrible this time around; far too rough and grumpy for Dumbledore. Anyway, better than the first two, but not as good as the third.

This morning, the guy who plays the trumpet in the Metro station was playing Christmas music. ARGH!

But nothing can bother me too much. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, the day on which we worship food, the font of all joy. This year I get to have two of them. Not even the approach of *shudder* Christmas can dampen my enthusiasm for Turkey Day.
