broke / potter / hair

Oh man, I am so broke right now. I have about $17 left in the bank. Woo! I'm going to try to make it through the week without having to dip into my savings account. I'm usually not this broke, or at least, I haven't been in awhile. But as of late I've been diverting a rather large percentage of my weekly paycheck into a down-payment fund for my next car. So, really, it's my own fault. Thank goodness for overdraft protection!

This weekend I took the little bro to see Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. To use a bad movie-review cliche, "it was a fun romp". The tone was slightly darker, and slightly more adult than the previous two (thanks, probably, to the inclusion of Alfonso Cuarón in the director's chair? maybe?). By the way, how did the writer/director of Y Tu Mamá También get to direct the third installment of a children's book-series adaptation?!? The most enjoyable bit, for me, was spotting Dawn French in the movie - cuz I lurve her. Dawn French should be included in far more films. I'm thinking of going to see Shrek 2 in theatres exclusively based on the casting of Jennifer Saunders. I lurve me some French & Saunders, anglophile that I am.

Oh, and I got my hair done over the weekend - and I'm allowed to mention it because the last time I had my hair so much as trimmed was way back in September of last year. So a large part of today has been spent listening to people rave about my hair, which is the absolute worst part of getting one's hair "done" - besides, of course, the three or four hours in the salon.
