I know I'm very very VERY late on writing my book 7 review - people have done about two or three reviews plus about 87 memes each one about the book by now - but for many reasons I haven't done mine.

Darth Real Life has got quite a grip on me this month. I've been working my @$$ off, finishing my first residence's monography, and trying to deal with whatever else Darth Real Life has aimed my way.

Skip this if you do not want to hear dreadful things )

Besides that, when I do manage to be at home and not working, I've been so very tired because of the aforementioned facts...that and the few times I sat on my computer I ended up not writing a review because this is the LAST Harry Potter book. And my LAST review.

I don't want it to end.

So, I've been postponing my review. Not anymore. )

I know that when I post this I'm going to remember another handful of comments I should have added, but it's 2:30 AM now, and I have to work tomorrow. ¬¬"

OH! I forgot to tell you guys! The weekend before book 7 came out I FINALLY finished watching Firefly and Serenity! I liked it very much - especially Wash *snif* - but I still prefer Farscape! ;)

Yeah, I bought it - with [livejournal.com profile] dtissagirl, [livejournal.com profile] weirdgirlie and [livejournal.com profile] marcele - read it, and LOVED IT! :D

I will have to make a proper review later, but SPOILERS UNDER THE CUT! )
Yes, I'm still here. But work has eaten me alive! Not that I'm complaining - the more I work, the more money I make and the closer I am to buying my own apartment (if I stop spending the money, that is, with trips and a notebook, and whatelse) - but I'm tired, and I haven't updated in weeks!

Anyway, TWO THREE big HP fandom things!

FIRST! THE 5th MOVIE! I saw it on the premiere with a few close friends and LOVED IT! Undoubtely the BEST ADAPTED MOVIE so far, even though it still has some details missing. You can read my full account and thoughts about it here (in portuguese), but let me just resume my thoughts in 3 bullet points:

1) I LOVE THE SHIPPER SCENES IN THIS ONE! Including the R/S scene - yes, there was one, at least to me! But the best ones were the R/H ones. :) :D

2) I LOVE THE SEXTET! Luna and Neville are SOOO great! As characters, as DA members, as Harry's friends...loved it!

3) LOVED the battle at Ministry at the end. And yes, I preferred the way that character died in the movie better than the book - at least it's not a STUPID VEIL!


FOUR DAYS TO THE FINAL HARRY POTTER BOOK! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! *runs around the house screaming and avoinding spoilers LIKE HELL!*

A few thoughts about what I think might happen in book 7 here (again in portuguese). I just hope I'm wrong about most of them, because I want to be SURPRISED! :D

THIRD! I was invited as a special guest for the last NERDCAST! Isn't that awesome??? :D
If you want to hear me rambling in portuguese, you can go here. It's the 70th nerdcast, and, yes, it's in portuguese.

On a non-HP related subject, IS THIS TRUE??? Could Farscape BE BACK?? *praying*
Yep, still working. Yep, I still owe you guys my detailed thoughts on BSG and PB endings. Yep, still anxiously waiting for April 23rd.

But I wanted to point out this for you guys!

Go and do yours!
Yeah, my half list already exploded with this news, but I had to mention it!


You know what's interesting? I didn't have a choice on when my vacation would be - I wanted it to be May to go to Celebration III or June to go to Comic Con, but I ended up with...JULY! XD

Until yesterday I was sad about it, but now...Hum...*evil plans*

Though I think I'd still prefer Celebration or Comic Con over book 7...*runs for cover*...Don't get me wrong, I love HP, but I can watch the movie and get the book here in Brazil all right, but we don't have those events here! :(

*still plotting to change her vacation*

Today I REALLY started my new residence/internship! SOOOOOOOOO different from the previous one, and so much better in so many different aspects! :D *happy happy day*
After more than a year since I read HBP, I read it again. Mind you, I didn't read it before due to RL problems totally unrelated to the book or its quality. This week, though, I managed to finally re-read it!

LONG rambling about book 6, and some comparison with book 5 )

Anyway, I *actually* wanted to make a post about what I *think* we will find in book 7, but I got carried away. Obviously. And quite expectedly! :P XD

NOW, what I really wanted to post about, Book 7 )

And man, that was LONG. Essay long, LOL! I doubt anyone will read this, let alone comment!

Anyway, moving to lighter matters! :D

I saw the Spiderman trailer - OMFG! I in love with Sam Raimi right now, because he DIDN'T ruin the movie when he decided NOT TO SHOW VENOM! :D Link here!

And because I can't get enough of Heroes, and monday is WAY TOO FAR, two preview of next week's episode: first one here, and second one there thanks to [livejournal.com profile] ninth_wonders! Obviously, SPOILERS AHOY! Can't wait to find out HRG man real intentions! XD

OH, and at last but not least...DIE LANA, DIE! XD

Debora *convinced that the Smallville writers/producers are on Lana CRACK!*
