I had such a lovely day yesterday. Whilst out about town accomplishing my "to do" list, I stumbled by the IMAX and saw that Harry Potter was starting in 15 minutes. (Imax is the giant 6 story screen.) I shut off my cell and bought a ticket. Escape. Plus the last half hour is in 3D.
(Right now as I write, an altercation is taking place next door. (Screamed) "How many women you got in there? You told me to come and now you don't let me in? Where's my watch? And breakfast? You told me to come and I want some breakfast. You told me to come this morning. You are fucked up! Where is my watch? I want my watch." It is a skinny white girl standing outside and arguing with a muffled male voice coming from one of the apartments. This is the third time I've seen her come over and rant. We moved away from cracktown to get away from these sorts of characters but apparently we didn't move far enough. The skinny white girl just strode off with a self-satisfied look on her face.)
After the film, I walked past a bookstore, saw the new Harry Potter in the window and went inside. There was an employee pulling copies out of a box to restock the giant isle 'o Harry Potter in the entry. I grabbed one and headed to the line. I counted ten other patrons ahead of me. Only one of them did not clutch a copy of Harry Potter. It's amazing how Rowling has touched so many people on the planet. After paying for my copy, I can honestly say that this is the most I've ever laid out for a book of fiction to read. ($38 with tax.)
When I got home, I called the Brazilians and offered them the apartment. They came over within the hour ready to sign the lease and pay the first month. They seemed very nice and grateful. The cute guy who "REALLY WANTED" the apartment, and whom serge had promised it to before vacation, never called back after promising Tuesday to come put a deposit down. Serge even left a message at his mother's house. Flake!
Serge got home then and I told him what I had been up to all day. When I got to the book part, he picked up his phone and dialed someone and left this message. "Do not buy the book. I repeat, do not buy the book." Apparently someone was planning to get it for my birthday, lol.
