    I knew the movie was going to be bad after the first line.

    [Voiceover — British radio announcer]: It’s going to be another hot day today – 32 degrees Celsius. That’s 90 degrees Fahrenheit!

    I know, I know. The audiences *is* generally so uneducated as to require the conversion in order to understand, but couldn’t they have just said “it’s really, really hot today”?

    We ended up going Sunday morning at 9am to see Order of the Phoenix. We successfully avoided the crowds! Yeah, had kind of the same reaction -eh. It should have been split into two movies. Oh, well, what’s done is done.

    Glad y’all had a good time swimming. I’ll post my cute dog story from the afternoon. We’ll have to do it again sometime!
