floating

By the time I got near the head of the line last night, I was fairly floating with anticipation. Which you can plainly see here.

Still, they moved people along at an orderly clip, calling them to the cash-wrap in bunches by alphabet (I was M for Malfoy). nephandi got his book earlier than me, but we were both out by half past midnight. Afterwards I read while nephandi fiddled with the Nintendo, and we cracked a nice bottle of Voignier.

My plan for this weekend is to stay off my feet (I've perfected the technique - see photo..), and read the book. The agony of de-feet has been extraordinary (sorry friends, I held out from using that pun as long as possible, really I did...) so a beach chair, the beach and the Deathly Hallows sounds about right! As it happens I also had a song sprung on me last night - a nice duet with the Queen. It has an extremely wide range running from bass to tenor - and the only dance breaks in the play. I've got six days to learn and perfect it.

So yeah, guess I'll be singing too...

I like M for Malfoy. Also, the ministry won't be happy about you performing floating charms while a number of Muggles watched, but still, you rock :)

This is one of those moments when I really wish I could claim credit - but someone else used it before me, so I can't really say it's mine. Similar to your lad though, I thought it was awfully damn funny.

I bought mine today at walmart. I know I should read it right now, because the spoilers are going to start being posted, but I'm only halfway through chapter 2.

You'd think being sick would be the best time to read it, but all I can think about is the stuffy head I'll get when I know I'll be crying or something.

I also got the first season of OZ to watch instead.

Elizabeth was dying to go out to Barnes and Noble last night and be part of the big to-do, but she fell asleep on the couch and wouldn't wake up. I can't say I was sorry about that- 12 hours standing in surgery yesterday and I was really tired.

This morning we waltzed into Target at 8 am and bought the book. No fuss, no muss, no lines. I just finished reading it. (Thoughts on that at a later date.)
