Get Up Angel, You Look Like A Pekingese

To prepare for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, we started watching the previous movie, sort of our first part of Part 1, so to speak. So far so good, although I needed a little refresher of what had transpired in the last movie to be able to put it all together. We're not going to be in line to see it during opening weekend. We're not THAT big Potter fans, so we'll let the crazies trample each other first, and maybe see it in a week or two after the rabid fans have gone home.

Soundgarden concert next week. haven't seen them in almost 20 years, so I'm pretty stoked.
