A Harry weekend

The weekend started off in a crappy manner – I had a doctor’s appointment in the morning (which they kept me waiting for an hour for), then got a stomach ache in the afternoon, and wasn’t up for much Friday evening, read some comics, no dinner, and went to bed somewhat early. Saturday I was feeling better, finally finished installing the icemaker. Still not getting enough pressure for the filter, so I called a plumber, pleasantly surprised they’d come out on a Sunday for no extra charge. The rest of the afternoon I finished Strangers In Paradise (moving ending to the series), heated some frozen Asian food from TJ’s for dinner, then Jill went to bed not long after while I stayed up watching “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” – I never realized David Tennant (the current Doctor) has a decent sized role in it (mostly because I didn’t know him before he was the Doctor).

Sunday I got up and cleaned the kitchen, finishing just as the plumbers arrived. They were good, redoing the line to the icemaker, and also pointing out while the pipes had been replaced with copper, the pressure reducing valve was plastic and sometimes gave no warning before failing. They replaced it with a brass one. The icemaker is making ice now, but it takes 24 hours to flush the system. After they left, I took Illa on a long walk, then read the paper and more comics. Jill got back from studying for exams, and we had for dinner before going off to see “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix”. My friend Lykaon was not a fan, but he also has not read the books. We saw it in IMAX, and really enjoyed it – you may not get as much at of it if you haven’t read the books, but if you liked the others you should like this. No popcorn at the theater – we had some when we got home, though. I’m going to reread “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” next weekend before diving into “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”
