So we totally folded getting tickets to the midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. State College only has a couple of movie theaters (not counting the dollar theater which we still need to check out). We went over to the closest one last Friday to buy tickets for it. Of course, they started selling them on June 17th and were already sold out (seriously?! I know it's Harry Potter, but if you're gonna do it that early, at least send out flyers or something to let me know).

Correction: they were sold out of the 2D showings. Amanda and I refuse to pay extra for 3D movies (I don't see the point, plus their dorky glasses don't fit over top of my dorky glasses, so I couldn't see it anyways). And the other theater was the same situation. Would Amanda miss seeing the final Harry Potter movie on opening night? I'm pretty sure her heart would completely shatter if she missed this spectacle (not to mention I would be in the dog house for all eternity).

But I recovered! We're going to the 12:02am showing in Altoona, the closest sign of civilization beyond State College. Okay, technically it's not the first showing, but the 12:01am showing was already sold out. Does a minute really matter? [Amanda: YES!] Well, whatever. And the best part is now I'm making Amanda make my costume. I already agreed to get dressed up, but I refuse to hunt out an ensemble. So luckily I won't look like this:

And will instead blend in with this:

Minus this:

Totes presh. 7/14/2011. Or 14/7/2011 as the Brits would say. It's going on like Donkey Kong. With his own patronus.
