- I wouldn't want to say I'm obsessed or anything, but I did take Harry Potter 7 with me when I went to see Harry Potter 5 (for the second time) with O last weekend. I read it while waiting in line and while waiting for the movie to start.
- After waiting impatiently for TCBIM to hurry up and finish the damned book already, we both had the same quibbles and thoughts on the book, so the discussion I was so looking forward to turned out to be a case of "Oh, me too!" So, y'know, nice that we're on the same page (arf!) about the book, but it doesn't make for a scintillating conversation.
- I spoke with a friend of mine last night (Hi, L!) about the Harry Potter stuff and in trying to give her a synopsis, I realized that I really suck at that. I kept forgetting the order of things, kept having to back track and I didn't even TRY to explain the three hallows thing to her. I was confusing myself - I can't even imagine what I did to her.
- I was watching Keith (my imaginary boyfriend) Olbermann last night and he ran part of an interview that Meredith Viera (I really don't like her - never have. I'm not a big Today Show watcher, but I much preferred Katie Couric.) did with JK Rowling. There is going to be an 8th book; it's going to be an encyclopedia-type thing, similar to what Tolkein did with the LOTR books. It's going to tie up some loose ends, according to Rowling. That would be nice, because there were enough loose ends in there that I could make a sweater with them.
OK, I think this is it for Harry Potter posts. Even I'm getting sick of talking about it.
