A review of mostly the screenplay with just a bit of the movie.
I really liked the script. And the movie was good too. The great thing about reading a script instead of an actual book is that you get a faithful reproduction of what you've read.

I was so far behind on the Heroes rewatch that I've given up on it now. I just don't have the time. :o/

A rewatch for which I do have a bit of time is Sherlock. I'm even well on the way to finishing it by the time the new season starts! (I'll let you know if I just jinxed it.)

Why do I always put so many things on my to-do list?! Watching the Fantastic Beasts movie with my mom and sister is set for Monday. I really wanted to finish rereading the script (and with that my review of it) before I go see the movie. Probably not gonna happen *sigh*.

Yay, Rogue One situation is sorted, though not the way I intended. More later.

And speaking of Star Wars: Carrie Fisher! ;___;
I don't know if I can watch Episode VIII in cinema now - maybe you remember how uncomfortable I am with crying in public.
I found 10 illustrations (I'm still only interested in those that were made for Pottermore - although I'm wondering if I shouldn't collect Jo's drawings too) I dind't have in my collection yet! This is one of the rare PM ones that didn't get a Moment on the old Pottermore.

Not counting those of which I'm looking for a bigger version, there are still about 30 illustrations I'm trying to find.
How I feel: satisfied
Now I want to reread it (as if I don't have enough on my ever-growing to-do list, ha) - and this time I'll take notes for a review - and see the movie. Ooh, maybe I can take my sister! Watching movies alone is no fun.

I'm so dissatisfied with the icons I made for the latest [livejournal.com profile] dwstills challenge that I'm improving them. I need to remember to upload the updated ones before I post them on my icon journal. I want to overwrite the old ones, so I can't upload them right now, because voting is already underway.

After my icon post was posted to the DW comm, it became the non-Cyrillic top daily post for an hour (I got a notification that my entry was referenced in a post). Just shows how abandoned LJ has became that a post of mine could be a top post.

Bed times haven't improved. I went to bed at night and slept, but only woke up shortly after 7pm. Felt the sort of dizzy that means I'm not really awake and went to bed again at 10pm or so. Didn't manage more than a nap and got up again at 5am. After being productive, I went to bed around 9am. Was awoken at noon and went to my mom, we continuined working a big project which we'll hopefully manage to finish soon, because it's supposed to be a Christmas present. Went to bed at 1:30am and woke up 2 hours later.

Since I couldn't sleep anyway, I finally continued reading the Fantastic Beasts screenplay.

Went back to sleep before it got light. Finally woke up at 18:somthing pm. *frustrated sigh*

The night before last I made icons for [livejournal.com profile] dwstills under time pressure. Gah, they were so terribly uncreative. Quality-wise they turned out fine, but the lack of creativity frustrates me.

Speaking of icons: The icon post I submitted to [livejournal.com profile] doctorwho nearly a month ago was finally posted!

Speaking of last month: Back then I had pretty great, normal bed times, but they were ruined when I watched the results of the US election all night. They got more and more out of hand. Yesterday I once again went to bed at 8am. When I woke up in the late afternoon, I decided to sleep as long as possible. Woke up shortly before 1am. Let's see if this helps me get back to better bed times.

Two days ago the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them screenplay arrived. Let's see if I like it. I haven't read far enough to determine it yet.
Look, I managed to make a post! And it's about Harry Potter. Well, the HP 'verse.

So far I can't tell if I'm excited that Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them will consist of 5 movies. Depends how I like the screenplay. And if the other movies' scripts will be released too. I prefer Jo's writing, but maybe I'll even check out the movie!

Remember how I'd vowed to never go into a Primark again, due to this first, bad impression? Today I actually went into a Primark again, accompanying my best friend. Still creepy cheap (Slave labour? Low-quality materials? Both?) and nowhere to sit (at least this time I didn't sit down on the floor, so no employee told me to get out of people's way).

I discovered the merch section. I actually bought something!

Finally I have Raglan shirts again! Have I mentioned how much I love these and how hard it is to find good ones? And they're HP! Not just any HP, but Quidditch ones!
How I feel: accomplished

After I didn't get tickets on the 4th, I kept checking the site every day, because they had posted something about daily tickets. Then on the 9th the "sold out" out buttons turned into "book now". Man, was I exited. I clicked a button and had only 150 people in the queue in front of me. It didn't take too long until it was my turn and there were still lots of tickets to choose from! But every time I tried to put tickets into the basket, I was sent back to the booking homepage. And the stupid page didn't bother to tell me why! So then I tried something different and registered first. I wasn't sent to the homepage again, but I couldn't get 2 seats (I want to go with my sister) in the same seating area. So I always had to go back again and check other dates for cheap seats that are in the same area. Meanwhile all the cheap seats were selling out. Then dates were even sold out while I was looking through the calender, so that clicking a date sent me back to the homepage.

Ugh, why did I even bother? After all this was after my sister had admitted she doesn't know when she'll come back. And my mom had told me she wouldn't come with me. I should only try for tickets +/- a few days when [livejournal.com profile] alias_chick will see the play, but it's very unlikely I'll manage to get a ticket around that time.
