{ "...probably the bravest man I ever knew" }  
{ The Hephaesteion, Athens, Greece }

Hey flist! I know I've been terribly negligent of you all, but I think this is just a thing you're all going to have to put up with from me during the summer months- either my life is so terribly unimpressive there's really no point in boring you all to death with the details, or everything is happening at the one time and it's all I can do to get a second to drop ya'll a wee post about it. le sigh. 

The most recent example of this being the fact that I've just returned from a week's holiday to Athens, Greece! What do you mean you didn't know I was going?! Yeah, I guess aside from that one time back in January I've barely mentioned it, BUT I REALLY WAS RIDIC EXCITED ABOUT GOING, OKAY!? PROMISE!! 
It was a glorious holiday! And I had the best time visiting all the ancient sites dotted around the city, even if the heat was determined to kill me with it's 39°C temperatures (ASDFGHJK WHAT EVEN!?). I just got home yesterday so I'm mostly running around unpacking and doing my washing and all those terrible post-holiday things, but once I get all my pictures in order I may or may not be inclined to spam you all ;D 
Until then: how have you all been? I appear to have missed quite a few things relevant to my interests in my absence, not least of which was Inception Day (OMG YOU GUYS!), Team Angst whipping Team Romance last week on ae_match :D (pfft. who cares that we're still technically behind?!), and the release of the last ever Harry Potter movie (DISTRESSED OMG!!)...
§ re Harry Potter [no spoilers]: Thankfully that last point got spontaneously rectified last night when my mother decided she wanted to go see Harry Potter around 10pm last night. I don't think I've ever been so eager to forgo sleep in my life! And, you know what, it was totally worth it <33 this movie, you guys, it will break you into a million pieces but you won't regret a second of it (well actually, there's still "the chapter that shall not be named" :S). But the highlight of the entire thing for me was Snape, OMG SNAPE ♥, I will forever be inlove with this man. His part in this movie was so like that in the books and I can't even tell you how relieved I am that they got certain scenes down to perfection. Forever in love with Alan Rickman too for bringing one of the most complex characters to life and doing him all the justice he deserved ♥♥♥ 
...have I missed anything else I should know about?

Caspe! Welcome back. Athens sounds awesome. I was there when I was very (very) young, and would love to go back some time. I for one would love to see you spam us with delicious holiday pics.

You know, the sad thing is that I don't even KNOW where a movie theater is where I currently live. I really do need to get out more and not just for work. I think I'm going to have to rectify that movie theater issue sometime over the next week and drag my ass off to see HP, especially for Snape.

Alls well on this front (which is quite nice to be able to say, for a change). Glad to hear that you're doing well too!

Oh, and I totally understand about having either the most boring life ever or nothing but excitement. My life is exactly the same. Feast or famine... that's me.

Hello, darling! :D

It was such a lovely holiday! I'm just so happy I'm getting to visit the places I've been dreaming of since I was little :) I'm still sorting my holiday pics, but I'll defo get them posted up as soon as I've got them done!


I know you've had a lot on your plate recently(though very glad to hear that all is well at the moment!) but you just have to find this movie and get it watched. I promise you that you won't regret it. Alan Rickman is, once again, beyond amazing at Snape and I just fell in love with him all over again watching the movie <33

lemme know as soon as you see it! :D

haha, yeah! Exactly that. Suppose I shouldn't complain, maybe the boring weeks make the exciting ones just that teeny bit more so!

Glad you had a good time and got home safely, we all missed you at LFCC!

I've been hearing nothing but amazing things about the new HP film (I sadly promised my sister I wouldn't go till she gets back next week. I has to wait 1 more week!!) and I watched the Behind Scenes stuff that ITV did the other night. Am quite sad its the end of the movies. :(

thank you, hun! And I missed you guys so much too D: ::snugs::

asdfghjk!! A whole week!? I was bad enough having to wait till I was back from my holidays! haha. You'll love it though, and it'll totally be worth the wait!

omg cannot believe it's over though D:

I know right what the heck was I thinking when I agreed to do that!?!

Doesn't feel like its over, I mean still got the books to reread etc. Just...what am I gonna go see next year at the cinema??

clearly it was a moment of insanity! I do hope you're planning to make up for your lapse in judgement by seeing it at least a bazillion times ;D

I suppose, but at the same time... le sigh. I miss the books so much. I miss that nervous excitement you got waiting in the queue at midnight for the release of the latest book, I miss being taken on journeys with the characters, of being surprised and happy and scared and so many other things. Yeah, we can re-read/re-watch but at the end of the day, there'll not be any more and that's kind of sad D:
Joulez217: M/H - Suitsjoulez217 on July 21st, 2011 09:05 pm (UTC)
Well I am prone to bout of insanity ya know, pre-existing condition and all that. ;) Oh hell yeah, at least three times has to be the minium.

Oh god yeah, I use to love knowing that there was more to come, that there would be another "adventure", that there'd be some more to the puzzle to put together. To know there is no more is just disheartening. These books/films(first film was released while I was still at school!!) were just something of an escape from incredibly difficult life problems and to know that there will be no more.... :( This convo is getting to sad for me, I needs me some happys about HP dammit!!

Harry Potter made me cry. Just a little.

Though the film does cement my opinion that anyone who doesn't love Alan Rickman has no business whatsoever being anywhere near me.

I thought I would cry but I was just too shocked by the brutality of Snape's death to do much more than gape and forget to breathe. I can't even. O_O...

THIS EXACTLY! They couldn't have gotten someone more appropriate to play him, Alan Rickman just got the character down to perfection and I will always love him for doing right by Snape <33
