I've already talked about how applicable Lord of the Rings is to my life. I would say the same about Harry Potter, though the movies are completely non-quotable (which is the opposite of LOTR). I often find myself having LOTR or Harry Potter moments in my day. (and I'm not the only one)
Made some Lipton soup (yeah, how long has it been? it just felt right) and was reminded of those maddeningly evasive noodles of yore. As if my spoon was a noodle repellent. And a scene from Harry Potter 6 flashed in my mind, when Harry is desperately trying to fill the cup in the basin on the island in the cave, to quench a dying Dumbledore, and the water keeps magically slipping out. Just like Harry, i am so frustrated, because I JUST WANT SOME NOODLES. In the end, those noodles are so small, they are hardly even there, and more of a mere illusion. And I end up having to put in crackers to give it some girth, as i have in all Lipton soup experiences throughout my life.
