I love Lockhart too. Have you read Order of the Phoenix? There's a sad bit with him.

nonperson 13-04-2021 12:01 PM

Yes. =/ I always forget he appears again in the books but never to be seen again in the films.

nonperson 13-04-2021 12:02 PM

And yes, he is totally annoying but so funny and Kenneth Branagh did a great job acting the role. =)

Cacoethes 13-04-2021 12:03 PM

I remember that too!
Though i haven't read the books in a long time

Yes he did do a great job!

I hope it's not too stressful

It was very stressful. So busy but I survived and got Josh some stuff.

Hope it goes as smoothly as possible, Luna. I know what you mean about social distancing rules - as long as you're doing your best to comply then that's ok! That's all anyone can do in some situations.

You're right, I do try my hardest. Some places are a bit confusing.

Hey np!
How are you?

I read that some people were bringing multiple suitcases to fill at primark!

Good idea!
I'm watching the second Harry Potter atm!

I actually hated Chamber of secrets. I don't know why just found the book really dull.

The man is thick as two short planks lol

Cacoethes 13-04-2021 12:37 PM

Well done for surviving Luna!

Chamber of secrets is my least favourite of the films and books.

shadow-light 13-04-2021 12:38 PM

*has only read 3 HP books and not seen the films*

Cacoethes 13-04-2021 12:39 PM


shadow-light 13-04-2021 12:39 PM

I don't really do pop culture :laugh:

[Luna] 13-04-2021 12:40 PM

I'm actually not a fan of the films. I've watched them all a few times but I don't think they did the books justice.
When I was 12/13 I was absolutely obsessed with Harry Potter but lost interest over the years. Now my hatred for JK Rowling makes me even less interested lol

shadow-light 13-04-2021 12:42 PM

I read the first 3 books as I read them to my brother.

But to be honest due to social media I pretty much know the plot of the rest of the books too

shadow-light 13-04-2021 12:42 PM

I liked Lupin

no idea if I would have prefered a character past book 3 though if I'd bothered reading them

[Luna] 13-04-2021 12:45 PM

My dad used to camp outside Waterstones every time a new book came out to get me and my mum a copy. We all used to go to see the films as a family and he fell asleep every.single.time lol

Cacoethes 13-04-2021 12:51 PM

They definitely didn't do the books justice!
And yeah, JK Rowling has turned out to be a complete dick.

Lupin is awesome

My step dad did too Luna!
I can't remember first seeing the films though

nonperson 13-04-2021 01:52 PM

I was really late to join the HP fanclub. And I always said Chamber of Secrets was my least favourite book and film too but when I think about it it does have some very good moments.

Cacoethes 13-04-2021 01:53 PM

It does! I don't know why it's my least favourite. It just is!

nonperson 13-04-2021 02:43 PM

Moved on to the next film yet, Beckie?

tamobhuuta 13-04-2021 03:03 PM

Why is Rowling a dick?

not_so_insig 13-04-2021 03:15 PM

I think it's to do with her political and trans views tamobhuuta.

Cacoethes 13-04-2021 03:15 PM

Not yet! My concentration only goes so far!

Because she's posted some very anti-trans stuff on twitter tamo

not_so_insig 13-04-2021 03:21 PM

I rarely have the concentration for a film.

tamobhuuta 13-04-2021 03:25 PM

Ah ok

Cacoethes 13-04-2021 03:47 PM

I can't just watch a film. I have to be doing other stuff too!

nonperson 13-04-2021 03:53 PM

I often watch films over several days.

Cacoethes 13-04-2021 03:59 PM

Same np

nonperson 13-04-2021 04:06 PM

How late are they running for ward round?

shadow-light 13-04-2021 04:11 PM

Oh oh oh! I'm like this!!! It annoys anyone I watch film/tv with as apparently I "cant be paying attention" and "its rude" 🙄

Cacoethes 13-04-2021 04:23 PM

It was actually on time today!

Yeah same Hazel!

nonperson 13-04-2021 04:25 PM

Shocking =o

How'd it go? (if the question/answer are appropriate here)

Cacoethes 13-04-2021 04:33 PM

I know!

The true answer is not appropriate but basically i MIGHT be going home on Friday!

nonperson 13-04-2021 04:41 PM

That's still a step in the right direction even if it doesn't happen on Friday but lets hope it does! =)

Cacoethes 13-04-2021 04:48 PM

Indeed! :)

nonperson 13-04-2021 04:49 PM

What's the plan for the rest of the evening now that awful wait is over?

Cacoethes 13-04-2021 04:55 PM

I'm watching prisoner of azkaban now!
It'll be dinner soon too.
How about you?

tamobhuuta 13-04-2021 05:21 PM

Is home good news Cacoethes?

nonperson 13-04-2021 05:44 PM

Prisoner of Azkaban is good.

I don't know what to do this evening. I'm so tired and really don't want to go out to do a food shop... Might just get some dinner and watch crap tv instead (Below Deck Mediterranean is the current and surprising fav!)

Cacoethes 13-04-2021 05:48 PM

Yes it is tamo!

What's that about np?

nonperson 13-04-2021 06:01 PM

About the crew of a super yacht and their personal dramas and of serving really rich people who hire the boat out... It's awful reality TV but I've been sucked in. On All4 if you're interested ;-)

Cacoethes 13-04-2021 06:06 PM

Haha! Sounds absolutely terrible :p

nonperson 13-04-2021 06:17 PM

It is but I can't stop myself!

Right now I'm watching the episode I missed yesterday on catch up so I can watch tonight's one without having missed out.

I need help!

Cacoethes 13-04-2021 06:20 PM

Yes. Yes you do :p

nonperson 13-04-2021 06:26 PM

After tonight's episode I'll seek out a self help group.

Cacoethes 13-04-2021 06:43 PM

Good plan!
Though i guess the same could be said about my border patrol addiction...

nonperson 13-04-2021 07:02 PM

True true.

I think I'll wait until the end of the series before seeking help.

Cacoethes 13-04-2021 07:11 PM

Good idea!
I should totally have asked for help with my border patrol addiction in ward round :p

nonperson 13-04-2021 07:15 PM

That may have been TOO honest of you!

Cacoethes 13-04-2021 07:22 PM

Yes probably! :p

nonperson 13-04-2021 07:45 PM

Oh man I just had my first proper hot meal in three days and it was gooooood.

Cacoethes 13-04-2021 07:52 PM

Oooh what did you have?

tamobhuuta 13-04-2021 08:17 PM

My mum loves below decks
