When Jeff plans the weekend in Salt Lake it goes a little differently than mine does. His big goal is to veg in front of TV and movie screens. Mine is to see and eat as much cool stuff as possible. We hit up Starbucks for breakfast oatmeal and that was the extent of our eating out. Oh well. We saw a couple of cool movies, more on that in a sec. One thing we always agree on is the workouts. We had a 9 mile run scheduled on our training plan for Saturday, and jeff suggested running up the City Creek trail. It was honestly hard to believe there WAS a trail right near downtown, but what as cool run! We started out running up west temple past the salt palace and art center.
Here's Jeff up ahead of me (he's much faster usually, but especially when I'm taking pictures). Then my camera shut down on my phone because it was supporting my audiobook at the same time and freaked out. oh well.
The first movie was Potter. Fabulous. Just fabulous. I'm a major Potter nerd, and have read all of the books multiple times, AND listened to the audiobooks --all of them -- multiple times. I was so excited for this movie. Usually when this happens, the movie can't live up to your expectations, but they pulled out all the stops on effects. The best part by far though was watching Snape's memories. This is probably my favorite part in the whole series, but watching it on the screen, I was sobbing. I felt so stupid while I was doing it, knowing these are fictional characters, and telling myself that over and over didn't help one bit. I was completely drawn in. Jeff kept patting my arm (probably hoping I'd stop embarrassing him).
