a little off topic jaunt today …
i saw harry potter movie last night. and while the kids are (finally) legal, at least by UK standards — and fred and george must be over 18 by now, right? — i still feel a little odd having little flutters about daniel radcliffe. he’s like this sapling, where you can see the form of the handsome tree he will become. 20 years from now, when he’s truly a man, he’ll probably be Just My Type.
still, it’s snape i’ve had the crush on all this time, and casting alan rickman (and alan rickman’s *voice*) in that role is genius. i can still hear him saying “turn to page three hundred and ninety four” in the last movie, and it still has the same delicious effect on my spinal brain. (won’t tell you about anything he says in this movie; no spoilers.)
also, you *know* he knows his way around a riding crop. y’know?
wands at the ready, indeed
