Harry Potpot

Because I ran to the movie listing for the week and you know what’s showing? Harry Potter. In ALL cinemas. I think except for one cinema in Robinson’s, which is showing some obscure unremarkable movie I can’t remember. I’ve learned back in 2001 not to make siksikan with everyone just to get to watch the movie. Back in 2001 (shift everything to sepia NOW) I ran to Rob to watch HP1. This was when we were having Biochem and stuff and it was always half-day and stuff, and this was also when the admission in Rob cinemas was just P50. This was also when the Midtown cinemas were just a dream, so off I went to what is now perfectly labelled by HTGOF as “Cinema Poorita”.

The line to HP1 extended to Jollibee, so I told myself I would make no further attempt to watch the blasted movie (I, because I was alone, ya hear that batchmates, I’m used to watching movies alone!). And just to complete to plan to watch something I checked out what was showing in the cinema across HP1 and what should it be but… Glitter, the one with Mariah Carey in it! I checked the line for HP, took furtive glances to my left, to my right, and when I was sure that no one I know was in sight I went to watch Glitter. It is unintentionally funny, and I was laughing by myself much to the annoyance of the two other people watching who seemed to be really into it.

Which reminds me, I’ve already blogged about this, so I have officially jumped the shark and am now showing reruns, but this was way back in the Friendster era when, all together now, it still wasn’t spammed by invites for a liaison in Ortigas by women in transparent clothes. Must resume attempt to preserve those entries before the site totally crashes.
