Danielle warned me. Teri warned me. They knew I would get obsessed too. I finally finished Harry Potter & The Half Blood Prince and I am pissed that there is not another new one to read! I also sat there last night sobbing while discovering who dies in Book 6 (allthough I had heard about it when the book was released, but got it all mixed up – such a dumbass). Bryan could not figure out what the hell was wrong with me. Oh me? I am just a freak who has gotten sucked in to a book written for teenagers that is about a bunch of wizards and witches and is so complex that I am going to have to read all 6 books another 3 or 4 times to really understand it all. And let me be clear, I do realize I am an idiot for needing to understand the in’s and out’s of a completely made-up world. In my defense, I spent some time on J.K. Rowling’s site over lunch and this would is beyond real to her, too. She has “back story” on pretty much every character, even if they only uttered about 5 words in any one of the books. And to prove my title as Queen of the Dorks, I am currently downloading podcasts to my iTunes from the web site “The Leaky Cauldron,” which apparently discusses all the theories behind the next book – which J.K. (yeah, we’re on a first name basis) is currently writing.
Um… Want a copy, Danielle and Teri?
