Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Another great Harry Potter movie. I've enjoyed every single one. I love all the effects, the strange surroundings, the alternate world feel and look of it, and all the different characters.

A funny thing happened during this one, though. I had to be pretty exhausted to fall asleep during a movie I enjoy, but sure enough I did fall asleep for several minutes. I missed the part where the nasty woman first became ensconced at the school.

Our cat, Velvet, had been pregnant for what seemed like forever, every day getting bigger and bigger until she looked like a big round ball. I would check on her a lot to see if she was going into labor yet.

So, what woke me up during the movie were little mewing sounds, and I hopped up and started heading for the laundry room (where Velvet was being kept safe from harrassment by our new dog) while mumbling that Velvet must be having her babies.

My entire family started laughing at my not-quite-complete awakening and bumbling run to the laundry room and informed me that the mewing sounds were coming from the cat pictures in that nasty woman's room in the movie.

After looking at the TV screen briefly, I still went and checked on Velvet just in case, but still no kittens were being born yet. They did arrive about a week later, though, and they are the cutest little things.

"Screeched in" is a tradition in Newfoundland. There is a ceremony where you have to drink a shot of Screech (rum) and kiss a cod. Lotsa fun!
