So I recently went to see Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince with some of my friends over at Reston Town Center, now if you are form teh NOVA/DC area, you have probably been to, or at least heard of this place. Well anyways, so we had a light dinner, well, half of the group did at Panera first before we went to see the movie, not a bad sized crowd for a Thursday evening. I throughly enjoyed the movie, visually it was spectacular and despite being over two and a half hours, it was very entertaining through and through. But, one thing stood out, at least for me. First, let's backtrack, a while back ago, Daniel Radcliffe was the hottest guy out there, girls flocked to him, but since that has died down, well, I think his wizarding replacement has arrived in the terribly attractive Freddie Stroma. Playing Cormac McLaggen, a quidditch playing hunk tryign to win the heart of fellow key character Hermoine Granger, I literally sat mouth agape after he first appeared on screen. Currently, Stroma is not a very high profile actor, but I believe after this role in the HP series, I expect his popularity to really takeoff. In the mean time, I'll be here, admiring both his acting skills and his stunning good looks.
and also......let's take a look back at his ad campaign spot for Acne Underwear back in 2008, I won't ask about the name of the company....
Who wouldn't enjoy seeing him dance, or at least try to dance? haha. Nice abs, mate.

Anyways, Harry Potter VI is out and I honestly can not wait to go see it. I'll admit something first though which would probably get me castrated by one of my friends if they found out, but I actually did not finish reading the Half-Blood Prince, I got half way, got bored, skipped to where Dumbledore got killed, and read the last chapter. So seeing the movie will fill any blanks for me I guess, hopefully it won't disappoint.
On a final note, the weather here has been amazing recently, like mid or low 80s, sunny to partly cloudy, and relatively low humidity. I really need to go to the pool or something haha.

So plans for this week? Well, I am hoping to go see Brüno with Maria tomorrow, apparently it's disappointing to those who have seen Borat, but then again I never saw Borat (I know, shame on me) so I hope it won't be too bad. Apparently some people have complained it is homophobic in ways and casts us in a bad light, well, time will tell but I have an open mind and easily laugh at myself and all sorts of things, it's pretty hard to tick me off on some subjects. Also, Harry Potter is coming out :D yay! So I don't know if I'm going to see it this week with friends or not. I got invited to go with a group but I don't personally like or enjoy the company of some people in the group and also the person who will be driving, one of said unlikables mothers is pricklier than a porcupine after eating one to many hot peppers, and I don't think she particularly likes me either for some reason which is odd considering I have only met her twice and both times it was for no more than 10 minutes. I dunno, for all I'm concerned, I don't like her and she doesn't like me so it's a level playing field. I also need to work on summer assignments this week, I plan to finish the book 1984 this week and also try to finish another chunk of history assignments, whether this will be successful or not, we will see.

In other news, I had a lunch get together with some of my friends today, well, yesterday where I finally made the promised Chinese food lunch which my friend Lauren has been reminding me about for a few months now, we invited some of our other crew friends to join us for lunch, along with Lauren's dog, Sia, a 13 year old Egyptian Hound Dog you would likely mistake for a deer if you didn't pay close enough attention. Afterwards I ended up playing Mario Olympics with Lauren in her basement which was fun, I learned that the hammertoss is truly my event haha. Well, finally, tomorrow I have a lunch outing with my friend Maria, she needs to buy a costume apparently and then we are heading out for lunch somewhere so we'll see how tomorrow works out.
O funny story, today my mom sweet-talked 2 security guards and a tour guide into letting in 5 technically unauthorized people into the US mint here in D.C., how it worked? I dunno, but seriously, that is straight up fantastic.

Also, yesterday we had some visitors come in from California, it was one of my mom's friends who she had met in China when she was 17 and she had since moved to cali, lets just say my mom and her haven't seen her in quite a while, meaning I wasn't even born yet haha. So yeah, she had two kids, one 28 one 211 and it was pretty much me and my cousin and them two who hung out and talked through dinner and afterwards. We ended up going to IHOP in the end around 10 PM, haha. I got "bullied" into getting a neopolitan milkshake which the waiter did not know what that meant (choc,vanilla, and strawberry all together) which was a pleasant surprise. They live in LA and are staying until sunday. They are some pretty cool people I must say, very nice and fun to talk with. If you live in the Los Angeles area, a heads up, they plan to franchise a Golden Corral out west. In case you don't know what Golden Corral is, it's a restaurant/buffet which pretty much serves everything imaginable including a grilled station and bakery, it's a southern thing (sidenote: they lived in North Carolina for a while, hence Golden Corral). They also apparently plan to open some frozen yogurt shops here east because apparently it's popular out on the west coast. But yeah, it was nice to meet them and pretty fun, hopefully I'll be able to see them again some time.
