I miss those friends. I have other guy friends where it's still the same. I can talk to them, I can call them to catch up, we'll grab lunch when we're in town. But it's not like these others. So to my old friends, my precious pile of silver, I miss you, I love you, and you'll always be in my heart. Yes, that sounds sappy and cheesy and I kind of hate myself for saying all that. But it's so entirely true I can't help but to say it. I kind of feel like this is how the rocks feel about Jesus as Christ. They can't help but declare He is Lord. Yes, I did just make that comparison. It makes perfect sense in my head, even if it looks weird written out. Anyways, if those three friends ever stumble across this- they'll know who they are. And I miss them. And I'll welcome them back at any time. Because sometimes change isn't good. I think we all learned that the hard way. While I'm very happily married and wouldn't trade that for those old friendships, I wish we could find a middle ground. Because I'm the most loyal friend you'll ever have. Once my true friend, always my true friend.
On a much lighter note, I watched the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 trailer. Wow, that's a mouthful. But I had to give it justice. Each time a new Harry Potter film is approaching I get super super excited. Far more excited than is warranted, I admit. And then after I see the movie I am extremely disappointed... the first time. After the third time I'm hooked. I don't know why that is. If I could stand to wait I would just skip the theater and buy it as soon as it came out (which I end up doing anyways). But I need to go see it as soon as possible. Just one of those things. And this one will probably be no exception. I don't understand how they're going to organize it all, but I'm excited all the same. "Wit beyond measure if man's greatest treasure". "The last enemy to be defeated is death". And yes, that is the same quote I put up here for Easter. It may be in the book, but it was in THE BOOK first. I hope they don't take it out. I still feel like the sixth movie was lacking because they left out "... until you learn to shut your mouth and open you mind!" (ok, did i get that right? It was something like that) I feel like that was the entire point of the sixth book. And they left it out of the movie. Oh well, maybe I'm wrong. But it's what gave away to me that Snape was an amazing character. Anyways, I figure that since I don't like Twilight, I make up for it with Harry Potter. But, I still feel this is more warranted. Harry Potter is the most successful movie franchise of all time. That title used to belong to the James Bond franchise. Beats our Star Wars, which in my mind was pure genius. Someday I'll probably go the Harry Potter theme park. My parents are thinking about taking my whole family there, well to Disney but I would definitely want to go to Hogsmeade! So I feel like my irrational like of Harry Potter is warranted. I'm not all crazy about the characters, I don't really find any of them attractive. I am glad that they kept all the original actors... well, minus poor Dumbledore- he was perfect for the part. So yes, I am extremely excited for the last two movies. I'm glad they made that decision to split them up, even though I can't imagine all the forest scenes.
All of my posts may be superficial. I'm really not that superficial of a person. Well, I guess I am. But I'm getting a lot better. It's amazes me the things I used to find important in life. Like when I HAD to have a pair of pink adidas tennis shoes and I didn't even like them! But I had to have them because everyone else had them. And I wore them for 2 years solid. They were good shoes, but I didn't even like them. But this is cathartic for me. I enjoy just typing away. Sometimes I try to piece together stories by just typing typing typing. The problem with my creativity is that I have lots of beginnings and middles, no ends. And most of my beginnings and middles do not go together very well. Someday I'll finish something. It may or may not go published. But I'll piece it together someday. But for now, writing for myself. That is enough. I've thought about just keeping track of my thoughts like this and forming a story around them. Not in the diary sense like some books are, but by editing after awhile and keeping the good stuff, shuffling it around, creating characters, and then filling in the gaps. Because there's a writer in me. I just need that original idea. Or many one not so original, like an endless love story. But it has to have something special. Like a Fitzwilliam Darcy or an Edward Ferrars. If I cannot create a hero equal to those nobles, then who am I? Sigh, if only Austen had lived longer to pen more great works.
And before I bunny trail yet again, good night.
