Star Wars Philippines had its November Assembly today, and we had tons and tons of fun... because of Interactive R2D2!!! If I didn't have a slight fever and a terrible headache today, I might have actually hugged the little droid when he and Oneal arrived. Artoo is just too cute for words. He rolls around, he sings (he knows how to sing, among others, The Imperial March, the Cantina song, and the Throne Room theme from "A New Hope"), he follows people around, he whistles... awwwww, he's just adorable! And he made me forget I was sick today. :) I think I'm in love with a freaking astromech droid! Heheheh....
I finally got myself a copy of the Chamber of Secrets soundtrack (with Harry on the cover. *wink*). I've listened to three tracks so far, and they're all fabulous. "Fawkes the Phoenix (Track 3)" is a wonderful wonderful theme with a magical and... ah... fantastical feel to it, very much suited to Fawkes. :) More comments after I've listened to the rest of the 20 tracks. I wonder what's in the 2nd CD....
After doing a little hunting in the mall with my fellow "No to Movie Arwen Club" members (LOL), I found several books I'm putting in my "Acquire the following books list": The Magical Worlds of Lord of the Rings by David Colbert, The Hobbit (with illustrations by JRRT), and Star Wars: Mythmaking.
On a personal note to U-l-a-n: I think I have a GVM now too! *silly grin* You really should have absolutely heard it! *insert evil laugh here* LOL.
