Okay, here are the rest of my notes (and, if you're reading HP for the first time, there will be spoilers for this book and the rest of the series):
Chapter 9: I never quite bought why the Death Eaters panicked at the sight of the Dark Mark. I understand the reasons stated in the text, but it still doesn't make complete sense to me. After all, these same people (apart from Kakaroff, the wimp) did come back when summoned, later in the book. I mean, if I were a former member of an evil gang, out reminiscing on the bad old days and having some fun, and someone put the gang symbol up in the sky, I would assume it was one of us that did it -- not that it was some sort of threat!
Chapter 10: Fred makes a crack about dying, in typical Fred fashion, but knowing how DH turns out, it really catches your attention! Do you think JKR was planning on killing off Fred at this point?
Chapter 11: Percy is being pompous about having to go into the ministry, saying that Mr. Crouch really relies on him, and one of the twins deadpans, "Yeah, I reckon he'll know your name soon." That always gets a chuckle from me! Also, on the train, they overhear Malfoy talking about how he wishes he could have gone to Durmstrang. In my opinion, it would have been a great thing for Malfoy -- I don't think the Durmstrang guys would have let Draco be such a bully.
Chapter 12: Moody sure knows how to make an entrance -- or, at least, Impostor Moody does. I don't know about you guys, but I always liked the fake version of Moody better than the real Moody we meet in later books. I think I'm picking up on Harry's reactions to him, but it's still interesting to note.
Fake Moody rocks--esp. how he does Draco. (oops, I'm getting ahead of myself).
ETA: Sorry, guess what I'm listening to now!
As for why they did all just apprepatate the day of the event...
It was explained in the book that they could not all show up on the day of because they could not risk muggles seeing so many of them. It would cause suspicion or something if millions of witches and wizards were seen arriving in one spot all at the same time...
