Hello World!

It’s been another beautiful day in sunny Perth – perhaps the most important word in that sentence being ‘sunny’. As in relation to ‘hot’. Or, perhaps, ‘scorching’. We’re in the middle of a mini-heat wave here in south western Australia – it’s predicted to hove around the 40C mark until Tuesday. Last night, we had a low, I believe, of around 25-27.5 C. All I can say about that is: thank god for air conditioners. And swimming pools. :)

In other news, you’d probably have to be dead not to have known that the first trailer for the Harry Potter movie is out. It took me some doing but I finally managed to download it (note to self, save up and get better net connection) and was quite impressed – from what I’ve seen so far, they’ve managed to capture the feel of the books quite well – Hagrid, Dumblemore, McGonagall all looked remarkably like I imagined them too, as did the school itself, though Snape was less, well, rodent like than I thought he’d be. But it is raising my hopes that they’ll pull it off well and not disappoint everyone. The last film with this much hype had to be Star Wars Episode 1 – and look how that turned out.
