So I've finished skimming Deathly Hallows. Skimming, mind, not in-depth reading. It isn't as bad as I feared. In fact, if I put myself in the shoes of a 16 year old, it's pretty good. I'll wait until next week to post more details, since Blogger doesn't let you cut like Live Journal does.

In other news, it's been a long time since I told you people about my underwear. So I needed some new underpants this weekend, and I thought that since I was at WalMart to buy DH, I'd get underwear while I was there. Yes, I buy cheap underpants. Why should I spend lots of money on underpants when I am the only one who sees them? Well, they were out of the cut I like (high-cut, if you are interested), so I said to myself, "Let's be daring!" and I bought a package of boy briefs.

On the one hand, I like the fact that the legs don't have elastic, which gets really uncomfortable when you sweat, which is pretty much constant here from March through October. Also, the fabric is soft, which is nice.

The downside is that they are 100% cotton, which is semi-good when it is hot because it wicks away sweat, but it is also semi-bad because they stretch. A lot. A little spandex would be a good thing.

Oh, and I saw Ratatouille today. It was really good. In terms of animation, it was probably Pixar's best. In terms of story, I still give the edge to Finding Nemo. Did I ever mention that the CCC stole that DVD from me? No? Well, they did. Of all the AV stuff (some videos, lots of CDs, a few other DVDs) they didn't return, that is the one that I regret the most.

OK, I really need to sleep now. Have a lovely Monday.

I give a big shout out to the boy briefs!

Also, let me add to the underwear discussion!

I went to Nordstrom the other day (while in Indianapolis) and sucked it up and got a professional bra fitting. I was a bit off (one cup size bigger than I thought) -- but the gems of bra knowledge Carmella imparted to me were so worth the $60 I spent on the one bra I could afford.

Nordstrom, according to Oprah Winfrey's show (which I watch about as frequently as Halley's comet appears), is THE place to be fitted for a bra.

So, now I have to go try to find my size (not going to be easy) in a store that carries bras for less than $30!
