Because it's time for the last Harry Potter*!!
And of course, gotta support the postal service (and honor Hedwig *sob* )
We are seeing the movie tonight after work. So very excited. There are about ten of us going, so it should be fun!
On a similar note, yesterday at work I was in a meeting with a woman when her teenage daughter called. The mom did some sighing and took some notes, then hung up the phone. She turned to me and said, "My daughter is going to the midnight show of Harry Potter and wants to dress up..." clearly indicating she thinks her daughter is over the top.
I say, "Oh how GREAT! We used to go to all the midnight shows, but I guess I am too old! I have a Gryffindor tie, hat and scarf she can use!"
Mom looks at me a little shocked, and says "Gryffindor? Is that from Harry Potter? She wants to be someone called Luna?"
Me, "Oh, Luna is from Ravenclaw! You will need a blue and silver tie. And some Radish earrings and crazy glasses if you can get them."
Mom, *scribbling notes like mad* " My daughter said strawberry earrings...should I just give her a stick for wand?"
Me: "Oh, it's radish earrings. For sure. And I have a wand she can borrow"
Mom: *looks up with the show head turn. shakes head* "You really like these books, don't you?"
Me: "Um....sort of."
*part one of course, so we get to do this all again this summer! *Squee!!*
