Sunday Dinner, Nov-18-2001

Last Sunday, we went out to eat at Cap City Diner, and then went to see the Harry Potter movie.

I basically agree with Willie about the problems of a long table; I didn't get to talk much at all with Willie or Laura. Which is most unfortunate.

I'm sorry that I didn't hear the suggestion of hanging out with conversation somewhere; the only postprandial suggestion I heard was that of going to Barnes and Noble, and I had already decided twice that that B&N didn't have anything to tickle my fancy.

The movie itself was very nice--I really liked the vision of the book. But: I think I would have preferred the six-hour version of the film. They elided so many of the details that I suspected that viewers who didn't know the books might not understand all of the subtleties of what was going on.

(And even The Self-Made Critic agrees that the scoring of Quidditch is wonky.)
