Comment Friday: 12/∞

It is Comment Friday here at Love All Books and at BAYB (where I grabbed the idea from initially).

So, on that note, as long as you're here . . .

Please post a comment while you're visiting and tell me what you're up to. Tell me what you're reading and what you think about it!

And have a great Friday.

Oh, and head over to BAYB and leave a comment there!

As for me, I'm still re-reading (to refresh my memory) Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J. K. Rowling (book seven, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows comes out soon so, yes, I'll be re-reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince also. Actually, now that I've seen the movie (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix), I will probably just jump into re-reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince now.)

I really enjoyed Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (the movie, I mean).

Imelda Staunton (who played Delores Umbridge) was absolutely perfect, which is to say she was detestable from the word go!

And Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) was also quite enjoyable to watch . . . she was perfect for the role, playing luna as the space cadet she should have been: soft-spoken, walking around in a dream world, skipping everywhere, a real ditz!

My favorite line in the movie was when Harry and his friends were discussing the need to find a place to practice magic in secret and Ron's younger sister, Ginny, asks Harry what happens if they get found out (they're not supposed to be learning to actually cast spells this year) and Hermione (of all people) says: "Who cares . . . I mean it's sort of exciting isn't it . . . breaking the rules." to which Ron replies "Who are you and what have you done with Hermione Granger?"

I am still struggling—and still hanging in there—in my XML Programming at Saint Paul College. (Saint Paul College is—as I've mentioned before—where I am working toward a Web Developer Certificate.) Things will get better next week when Riley starts a half-day camp all week (and a full-day camp the the week after that—which just happens to be the final week of class!)

I just started Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury. I really enjoyed an excerpt I read from the book a while back, so I'm looking forward to getting into it next week. I'll be seeing Harry Potter this weekend. I never got into the book series, though my wife follows them closely.

Well, I'm reading Digital Fortress by the author of Da Vinci Code. Well, I have been trying to read it and haven't had the time to touch it in the last 2 weeks. Maybe this weekend! :-)
