current mood: pleased
I actually wasn't planning on buying the OotP DVD when I went out with my husband last night, but there it was on the shelf as we walked through our local Target. I specify Target because according to their website and the sticker on the DVD, this particular edition is available only at their stores (which is why I couldn't find a better link for this edition of the DVD online).
The DVD has an absolutely wicked 3D cover which features two pictures: The first image has a purple background, Lucius in the foreground (the scene stealer that he is), Voldemort, two masked Death Eaters, and Bellatrix, all of whom are moving towards the right as though readying for a Clash of the Titans. Voldemort holds his wand in his left hand, and amusingly, Lucius is holding the Prophecy Sphere in his right hand!
The second image has a firy orange background and contains Harry, Ron, Hermione, Luna, Neville and Ginny all moving towards the left in their own readiness for the battle. All in all, I'm pleased with the purchase for the cover alone which is shiny and fascinating. It was the only one of its kind that I saw in the store. It even comes with a free digital copy of the movie which I presume will be downloadable to my computer from their website. We don't go to Target frequently either, but my parents gave us a gift card, so the DVD cost me a dollar and change. :)
The other bit of happiness is a bit of a story. My hubbie had an urge to try out City of Heroes/Villians again, so he tried installing it the night before last. After installing nearly all of four CDs for the program, he got an error message which wouldn't allow him to continue the install. Last night we went to Target (and my happy discovery above), but they didn't have a copy of the game. *boggles*
We went to Gamestop and they only had the cool Collecter's Edition which was marked down to $30. The cashier told us for some strange reason he couldn't sell the item- so he said "Happy Birthday, it's free." Since it was in fact my hubbie's Birthday, I joked that it was his Birthday and they serenaded him with the Birthday song. Heh. So yeah, a definite bit of happiness for us both. :)
