Firstly, I am fairly certain that this is the longest day in human memory. For the love of all that is good and holy, WHY is it still only 11 am.
It is, as you may have noticed, Harry Potter Day. I am beyond excited, but mostly I just really wish that I didn't have to be at work today because if I do actually burst into tears like I feel that I will at any moment, my coworkers will all think that I am insane, and I just can't deal with that today. It's The End. And I realize that that doesn't really, in the grand scheme matter. Fandom is Forever. But it will be different.
I am so grateful for fandom. Having the opportunity to get to meet and become friends with so many fantastic people is something I wouldn't exchange for the world. I mean come on. It's not every day you almost get thrown out of a Chilli's because a fight over Snape breaks out ( and this happened before HBP!). It's definitely not every day that you get to have breakfast in the cellar of a Salem B&B with Voldemort.
I am grateful for the fact that fans are so obsessive, an entire new genre of music has been created to encompass us. The world would be a much sadder, fun-hating place without the Awesomeness that is Wizard Rock. Forget about the Sorceror's Stone cos we got the Rock right here!!
In preparation for this evening, bookwench31 and I made t-shirts to wear to the book release tonight. They are, if I may say so, the best shirts ever. Everyone on Diagon Alley will wish that they are as cool as we are, with our fabulous shirts. Patty can design like a mofo.
So I guess the point is. I love you guys! Thanks for going with me on this obsessive fandom ride cause it's totally awesome!!
Harry and the Potters are in DC. TODAY! They came just to see athenienne!! So all you kids who don't hate fun should come with us. They're playing tonight at the Kay Spiritual Life Center (but they swear it's not creepy) at the American University at 8 pm. It's $5 for the rockin' ist HP time you'll ever have. You know you want to!
