Don't call me this weekend; I'm busy

aren't they beautiful?I can already predict that I will be nocturnal this weekend. My schedule will be thrown off by staying up until 1am to pick up my copy of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (not hairy pottery), then not being able to sleep until I've finished the 900+ page monster. When I finally got my hands on Goblet of Fire, I started in the morning or afternoon and stayed up until 4am, caught up in the book and sniffling. This time, Becky and I have each reserved our own copy so that I don't have to wait for her. As soon as I've got my hands on it, I can rip into it, read until Saturday afternoon, and then I'll go to sleep.

I love the Harry Potter series. I don't love Harry himself. What I like about Harry is that he's supposed to be a hero, but he's not perfect. He's a normal teenager, with all of the characteristics and tendancies that make you want to smack real teenagers. If he or any of the other characters were perfect or cookie-cutter stock characters, it wouldn't be as enjoyable. They have personalities and problems and issues like everyone else. As long as J.K. keeps it up, I look forward to the rest of the series.

One thing I don't like, though, is that I had a part of the book minorly-spoiled. MuggleNet wrote that they were upset that they kept getting unmarked spoilers mailed to them, and had thus learned, before reading the book, (spoiler ahoy...) which character was going to die. You can't tell us that you learned which character was going to die, when I didn't even know a character was going to die! AAAAAAAAGH! Maybe I am a mutant not to have already known that, and everyone else already did.

Any idea why that picture appears to be invisible????

No, but I would like to say that I have never read any of the HP books, nor have I seen the movies.

I have nothing against them. It just happens that I've never read or viewed. Coincidence only.

I'm probably the only one left on this earth.

I haven't read any of the books, and don't really plan to, either. I got tricked into seeing the first movie, though. Tricked as in I was out of town visiting some friends and they had planned this for months and I didn't have a choice in the matter but they were kind enough to by my ticket.
