I Got the Golden, er, Black Ticket!

I get the privilege of standing in the Hogwarts Express Lane on July 21st to pick up my copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows! wOOt!

Harry and my children (both born and unborn) are somehow synched. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was released in theaters on November 18, 2005. Since Joshua arrived on November 13 I had to settle for watching it on DVD, which I bought as a gift to myself after passing my commissioning interviews.

Now the new book will be released only nine days before BGB is due to arrive and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix will be in theaters on July 13, just 17 days befor BGB is supposed to show up. Hopefully she stays put long enough for me to see the movie and read the book.

I think I need to go back and do some catch-up reading to prepare for all of this.

I just read this entry to John and he said "I *love* Mary Beth!" You are the president of Nerd Club today!

Cool! I have had the book pre-ordered for my daughter for months now. And we are all psyched to see the movie, too.

You are cool. I wish I had the black ticket. Then again it won't kill us to wait a few more weeks after it's intial release to get it. I think I'm more interested in it then Sydney is. And yeah I'm going to have brush up on my Potter books so that I won't feel clueless.
