I met her through a mutual friend who insisted we would get along and she was right. We are both pretty simple homebodies. We don't do exciting things for the most part, but I am happy with her and she is happy with me.
So nice to hear real life romance..

Congrats Sean for finding the one. Weddings are so beautiful and by your description you sound like a lovely couple.

It was so scary when she came to tell us. Their house is a lot bigger but only some bushes separate our garden from theirs Yes, they are fine. She lost some jewelry from her former husband, irreplaceable. I feel it for her. Luckily the thief didn't make a mess.

Yes, I very much think so. I saw the trailer at HP6 and it looked nice. Taylor cut the hair. You are going to check it out too, I assume?

Yeah reading back is good

Yeah you are right, but it's fun to learn languages. It's just that I'm really bad in it, I always failed all my tests And it takes some discipline, because you simply have to concentrate on it for a longer time. Therefore I think learning a language is best when you have a chance to actually use the language.
I'm not great at learning new languages, even though I am interested in doing so .
Yep, I agree. Like learning a language to which we have more exposure is easier than trying to learn a language which isn't in much usage. That's why I had a little trouble learning Sanskrit. We don't really use it much for general conversation and that makes it difficult to learn the usage and forms . However if it's a language to which you are exposed in your everyday life, it's much easier

Yep did see him both evenings on Monday only flashing by during the race, but they do like a 2km round a lot of times, so I saw him in a flash like 30 or 40 times
But yesterday I had a chance to get near him (but my friends got lost among the people so I couldn't get a photo with him), but Andy even put his hand on my shoulder and said "sorry" when he had to pass me and I stood in his way He seems really adorable in real life
Oh and we had lots of fun cheering for him during the race, every round my friend and I kept shouting the names of Andy, Fränk and Koen (a Dutch cyclist). Andy had to smile a few times when he heard his name, and Fränk was even funnier, once he said something (we still don't know what exactly he said) and once he turned his head around to look who kept shouting his name
Good to hear that Bet you had great fun
Pics please

Yeah Andy finishing 2nd was great and the white jersey suits him well, I rather see him in Yellow next year though. (would be cool if he can win the double, next year would be last chance for him)

So you like HP as well... when people mention the movie I feel like going there as well, but I know I am ofetn a little disappointed because I expect too much after reading the book.


Venla (should've started the post with this I think )
Yes.

It's indeed nice to have someone else here who knows Andy as well. Andy's great.
Let's cheer for the double. Ah, I want to see him in the yellow shirt all the way

I do like HP. It's one of my favourites. I've read 1-4 books many times, 7th only in English, 5th a couple of times, the 6th I don't remember so well (gonna read it again) but my friend whom I was there with said the movie was so different compared to the book. So I'll warn you.

But apart from the differences, I'd consider HBP as the best film among with Goblet of Fire.

I'm reading Order of Phoenix in English now. Because after I'd have finished it and rambled through the 6th I could be proud to say I've read them all in the two languages.

Books are better.

Hey Venla
I saw HP too Liked the movie as a movie. But, it is quite different from the book. I still don't know how people who haven't read the book follow the movie
A few awesome sequences were there though
And Alan Rickman was awesome as well

Books are definitely better

Same here. Own them all, and I've read them so many times, it's not even funny

I liked GoF the best too. Like I said, a couple of pages before, throughout HBP, I was complaining about the plot selection and what all they missed out

Yup, generally speaking, when movies are based on books, I almost always prefer the books.

Yeah, they left out so many important stuff
I hope TDH I and II turn out better

Alan "velvet voice" Rickman is indeed brilliant He was my favourite actor to watch in HP Kept waiting and waiting for his screen appearances Snape also happens to be one of my favourite characters, so that's good.

yep, been following Alan Rickman for years, way before HP... he's great in Truly, Madly, Deeply and in that old Brit series Barchester Chronicles when he was young and played this unsympathetic character! and he was hilarious in the first Diehard movie!

I have yet to see him in the theatre though...

He was brilliant as Hans Gruber in Diehard. And I liked him in Robin Hood : Prince of Thieves. (That was the first time I saw him. ) And Truly, Madly, Deeply as well as Sense and Sensibility

yeah, Hans was one of my fave AR roles!! he was brill! TMD is a fave film because I've seen Juliet Stevenson in the theatre a few times and she's amazing and a great friend of AR -- S&S, AR's role was just a bit too quiet for my liking; his character was barely there (and I am not a fan of ET at all... ) if you can get a hold of Barchester, check it out!

I am a British theatre fan!

I love that GIF, not because the DS is amaze but because of how casual and "I'm the boss" Fed looks there after executing the shot.
