What a Super day! It began after game night with just a few of us late comers Friday night… more intimate but great fun as always. But today was a GREAT day. Went to see Harry Potter with my brother, nephew, niece, and new little friend. I must say I have a new favorite in the cinematic adventures and it was only the first half. It is definitely the most emotionally impactful entry as well as the most thrilling yet. Absolutely NOTHING was taken away from the absence of 3D (I even think that like Dan, himself it would have hindered it). The film crew made a marvelous decision on where to divide the two chapters… definitely the moment of highest dramatic tension.
After returning and hearing the the Buckeyes won their game against Iowa, I went to mass and then over for another gathering where some of us got to meet Alex Trebek, himself. I do enjoy Jeopardy! just not sure I enjoy it THAT much. Courtesy of Miss Mare, we celebrated the betrothal of Prince William and his Kate. We offered up any number of “proper English toasts” to not only the happy couple but also to the Queen, Margaret Thatcher, Winston Churchill, Charles Dickens, and several other British celebrities. Quite an entertaining evening if only one of us was not under the weather but the jukebox full of Beatles, the Who, Culture Club, Monty Python, and other Invaders made for quite the event. All while SOME of us insisted upon playing text tag (unfortunately, I could not as for some reason my signal keeps being lost in the gathering place).
Thanks everyone for a fun weekend!
