To all the Honorary Students of Hogwarts...

Happy Graduation Day!!

Judging from my blog roll this past week, there are quite a few Pottheads (shush, it makes me laugh) out there.

I must confess, I've never been a fan of the Potter. Not that I have anything against the story or it's success. In fact, I love the way Rowling is one of the authors responsible for the boom in the YA/Adult crossover market. I'm just one of the rare few who didn't get sucked into the mayhem -- unlike Melissa over at Through the Looking Glass . (Awesome chicky, with a cool blog. You should totally check her out).

In my defense, my tastes have always leaned more toward paranormal than fantasy. I tried to give the Potter a shot, but it just wasn't me.  Seriously, I'm amazed I loved Lord of the Rings as much as I did -- though I suspect Orlando Bloom had a little help in creating that fixation.

That being said, practically everyone I know is all revved up about the release of the last movie (part one). And this I understand. Trust me. I may have escaped the Harry Potter Mania, but I absolutely fell vitcim to the Twilight Epidemic. So, I feel your excitement and expectations almost as much as if they were my own . . .  and I fully expect you all to give me leeway when Breaking Dawn is released. Thankyouverymuch.

Anywho, for those who are heading out this weekend and braving the crowds in order to get your first taste of the end of the Potter -- Hope you have a great time, and may there be no screaming babies in your theater!!

Happy Friday, All!

No, I'm just too old to deal with all the peeps. I'd probably give someone an unwanted mouthful of my popcorn. LOL. I'll wait. I'd rather watch it in our home where I can pause it when one of the kids spills a drink or has to pee.

I am excited but I know I probably won't get to see it until the ruckus dies down or it comes out on dvd, like salarsen. I'm gonna have the hubs get me the whole collection when the last one comes out and that'll be that:)

I love how you fell victim to the "epidemic" of Twilight. When these books catch a hold of you, be it LOTR or HP or Twilight, they really do take over your brain for a little while!

Definitely a lot of Potter love going on this week.

I can't wait to see the movie, but am going to have to. We'll be seeing it next month.

When is Breaking Dawn due out? I'm totally clueless. Next summer, right?

Patti said...

We're definitely going to go see it, but not until the crowds die down a bit. I don't want any screaming babies.

Okay, I'm totally jealous that you're going to be meeting Richelle. I preordered the book back in June. I was told they send them out in the order the preorders were receive. I hope they don't forget to send it to me. That's happened before. :(

I grant you all the leeway in the world when Breaking Dawn comes out! I swear!

I like both fantasy and paranormal.

Yeah, we're potheads. We went to the midnight showing. It was fun! =)
