Teenage. A kid thing to do. Right?
|Didn't actually see this one, either...|
But, while I'm on subject of teenage vs. middle-age mom fads... Why is it that my teenage daughter can throw her hair up in a half pony-tail, half bun thing, with hair sticking up haphazardly askew -- and it looks cool. But when I inadvertently do the same thing, it looks messy? Same reason pink neon hair would look stupid on me?
When the subject has come up over the years, we've explained our objections, and the children have liked the logic and moved onto other books. No biggie. I love that they read Jane Austen, James Herriot, Lucy Maud Montgomery and Owen Francis Dudley, instead. It hasn't been an issue for us, personally. Still, it concerns me to see what an obsession the JK Rowling books have become for so many people. Frankly, I'm just really tired of all the press, all the hype, all the raves. I'm glad this is the last movie. My hope is that the vibrations of the series will finally fade out like Where's Waldo? finally did. The lead character of which, by the way, bears an eerie resemblence to Master Potter, I think. Check it out: All he needs is the hat and striped shirt... No offence meant, lovers of H.P. Please don't be mad at me. Or put a hex on me or anything. This is just my own personal opinion.
Indiana Jones meets James Bond. Does it work? Anyone seen Cowboys vs. Aliens yet? What do you think?
