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!
