These are the top ten greatest moments in the the history of the Harry Potter films*:
#10 - When Fred asks Angelina to the Yule Ball (Goblet of Fire). I love the intra-Hogwarts love drama in the books. And I love Fred Weasley. Funny stuff in that scene.

They are kind of what junior high sounded like for me...

Much of it was probably thanks to this girl:
I won't go too much into detail, but meeting Tehiva was probably one of the best things that has happened to me in a really long time. After talking to her about her family situation back in Tahiti and how much she loves the gospel and the scriptures and how sincere she is when she bears her testimony and tells people she loves them made me really want to change and not be a Grinch anymore. She is seriously a rock. She officially qualifies as one of my heros.
This year at camp was by far my favorite. Being a YCL is the only way to do it. It was kinda lame that I didn't get to hang out with these guys as much, but it's all good.
I'm not actually that much shorter than Kirsten... I don't think.
I think 1998 was a really popular year to name girls Jessica. Because every other first year was named Jessica. And that's my name. And I finally quit answering to that name because there was only about a 12% chance someone was really trying to get my attention.
We had a huge dance party late at night in the lodge with stellar tunes. And there were no boys there. It was so boss.
We compared tans, of course. I think Valorie is secretly a persian princess. Whater.
I learned that I'm really really dependent on time. There were no clocks anywhere and it made me kinda crazy to not know what time it was all the time.
No make-up. Not to be a princess, but I really missed mascara.
When the bright yellow bird flew into the pavilion doors and died, of course Kirsten and Eryn were the ones to smirk and whisper "Dinner," while everyone else was crying.
All I wanna say is that I finally feel like I know for myself.
I love the gospel.

#6 - Rasputin
#5 - Severus Snape
For starters, she has an awful dog. She's cruel and would probably talk smack about your family the whole time. Not to mention she would drink all your liquor.
He'd be the worst, hence his name. He looks way scary and he prances around in a cloak and top hat trying to lock children in cages. You would shut yourself in your room trying to be silent, but he would be right on the other side of the door saying, "Lollypops.. Icecream.." and when you started propping large objects against your door, he would go around outside and peek in your window.
Granted, he wouldn't be the most fun. But you would feel really protected while he was there. If a bully threatened your safety or if anyone tried to wrong you, he would beat their sorry behind and then drive you across the country to somewhere even safer. Really, would you complain if someone who looked like that showed up at your house?
She would sew you a new outfit, take you on a sweet day trip through the city, and play the guitar and sing for you. Then you could make happy lists.
#1 - Mary Poppins
She's obvioulsy the ideal babysitter. You wouldn't have to worry about cleaning up your toys. She and Bert would probably take you on a cool adventure, she would let you sit on the roof enjoy the city at night, and sing you to sleep. Oh, and she can fly and has magical powers.
Babysitters are kind of like sushi; they're either really good or really bad.

saying "yo" after every sentence.
driving on university avenue.
imagining myself married to a professional soccer player.
wedding and engagement photos.
plaid flannel shirts.
the smell of the orem public library.
when a movie is just so awesome that you stay until the credits are over and the lights come on and the workers tell you to leave.
fuzzy kitty tummies.
green left turn arrows.
those black nike socks that boys wear.
an unexpected nice text.
seeing the date in print on your birthday.

#1 - The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. This was Heath Ledger's last film; I'm probably the biggest Heath Ledger fan you know. I only proclaimed my undying love for him when I was like 12, so, I called him a long time ago. Anyway, I got it from redbox the other day. It was incredibly weird. Kylie put it well when she said it felt like a Salvador Dali painting the whole time. It was very surreal. And weird. And creepy. I really just watched it for the actors: Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, and Jude Law. Colin Firth is just whate'r for me, but he was good too. I applaud the makers of the film for solving the problem of Heath dying; you wouldn't even know those actors weren't initially intended to be in the film. And Anton (Andrew Garfield) was pretty cute; I'd never seen him before. Ok, but honestly, I had no idea what was going on. It made The Labyrinth and The Brothers Grimm look completely normal. You have no idea what is happening until the last 3 minutes, and even then you aren't so sure. It was so obscure, that the minute it was over, I watched it again. Yep, I watched it twice in 3 hours and 20 minutes. It was MUCH better the second time.

H) Amanda's house is rad. I want those dark things that roll down in front of the windows.
I) Christmas fettucini!
J) I don't think Rufus Sewell knows how to play a good guy. Jasper, ew. What a jerk.
K) That bedroom tent. I already talked about it up there. But I want it so bad. That kinda goes along with Mr. Napkinhead. It is so funny, you will fall off your chair.
L) Hey Jude. He's unbearably handsome. I like his glasses. and his mannerisms. and when he shows up at the door in the middle of the night and flashes his charming smile. Aww yeah. I can't figure out the mathematics of this. I just know I love you.
The Holiday. It's a dang good movie. I recommend it.
