Computer: ‘Bugger’ is a noun, ‘git’ is a sub-standard verb, and ‘gitling’ is not in any of my word bases. Mazer: I made ‘gitling’ up but it’s an excellent word, so use it. And I can’t believe they programmed you without ‘bugger off’ in the word base.
When I first saw the preview for it in a movie theater, without having ever heard anything of it, the simple portrayal of the movie made me think “Tower of Babel”, and the end of the preview revealed that the movie was in fact called Babel. Have not heard/read reviews of it, beyond a general impression that it is a good movie.
All things that occur this year can be looked on as closing or final conclusions in some way. An auspicious year to complete projects, bring projects to fruition or arrive safely after completing a long life journey.
Saw Order of the Phoenix last night..
Watching something like that is actually quite a trip… I’d forgotten that there might be anything more to it than really long lines.
There’s really really long lines really early before the movie, and there’s the extra-dorkiness status you garner by association with others in the line dressed as a Firebolt (yes, the broom), as Death Eaters, as Harry Potter, tons of random t-shirts saying things like “Severus is my slave/Severus is my master”, and countless girls with lightning bolts drawn on their foreheads with eye-liner. I may never be cool again. ;)
