13 Hours and counting

It is around 13 hours until it is released. I just got back from Kroger with provisions for the night/day of reading that lies ahead. Mainly sandwich stuff, and Sobe Adrenaline rush. My guess is that I will get home around 1:!5-1:30 tonight. I figure that by the time I take out Sirius, and possibly Bella if she is here too, I will start reading at 2:00. OOTP took me 15 hours. HBP around 13. I am figuring that I will finish the book around 1:00 on Saturday. I will then be in shock and try to sleep for a couple of hours, before calling, texting, posting to anyone I know who has finished it in order to discuss.

I think that everything is ready for the book release event tonight. I need to post pictures of the Quidditch pitch that I made, and the broom that accompanies it. Yesterday was spent sitting about 3 feet away from 1600 copies of the book that I was not allowed to open a box. That was some sort of hell. It will be very bittersweet to read the book, as it is the end. I finished up OOTP and HBP on audio, so I am ready to dig in, now that I remember what happened in HBP. It is amazing how much that you can forget from a book.

Time to head to a job interview. Yea I know, the timing is about the worst day ever, but they really wanted me to come in this week. It is the same company as before, and they finally called me in for a 2nd interview. Now granted, I love my new position at work, but this one would pay more, and be in the tech field, which is what I am wanting to pursue. Here’s to a busy day.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

I ended up going to an advance screening of the OOTP tonight. I have to say that I loved it. I loved the way the director interpreted the book into film form, and I was impressed. I won’t say more, as I do not want to risk spoiling anything for anyone.

I’m not dead, I promise.

So I haven’t updated this in quite a while. I just haven’t felt like writing anything. Here is a cliff notes recap.

AdventureCon/Jon and Rose’s wedding. I was glad to be able to attend.

Started a punisher costume.
No pictures yet.

Trooped the Nightstalker safety day at Fort Campbell. I got to sit in helicopters and we also got some cool pictures of Plo Koon leading the troops off of the ramp into battle.

Harry Potter movie and book events are approaching soon. I need to make Hagrid somewhat presentable.

That is all.

I am sooo excited. Hagrid just moved to the top of my list of costumes that need to be remade.
