This morning I went to a ridiclous movie entitled “The Boss”, it is so bad I won’t spend much of any time writing about it. If it weren’t for the $5 morning movie price tag and the fact that there was almost no one else there, I was still able to pass the time appropriately by casually using my cell phone. Yes. I was that guy, but I rarely walk out of movies and as much as I wanted to, I was hoping for some sort of redeeming value. Yet there was hardly any to be found.
I got home and booked my airbnb in London for the Harry Potter play that opens next month. I decided to see it for my birthday would be better than rushing over when it opens. I bought Part 1 and Part 2 on the same day, and was able to get tickets the day they went on sale for round one. That was certainly an experience in and of itself. London isn’t cheap, so I’m hoping the $700 spent on lodging for 5 nights goes well, plus I’m bringing a very special guest along for the trip: mom.
In a week or so I will be visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood when I work for the French Film Festival for yet another year happening at the Director’s Guild of America building. I have a fair amount of Harry Potter to look forward to in 2016, and with the Fantastic Beasts film coming out in November — it could be quite an epic couple of months. Until then — Mischief Managed.
