Please! Someone shut out the lights!

Just dropped Hub off at the airport. Blaze is going crazy because he's a daddy's boy and hates to be away from him. The cats don't like seeing the luggage out. They were only mildly happy that I came back. Yay for me. Anyway, it's why I'm awake at this ungodly hour. 8:15 am is a time that should never be seen by me. It's even more sad for the rest of you who might have to speak to me. Thank goodness the cops weren't checking ID this morning. I may have gotten arrested. I haven't had my coffee yet.

Two re-obsessions this week: Harry Potter and teeth so white they frighten small children. The bleach I got is working wonders - especially for a chain coffee/tea drinker like myself.

As for Harry Potter, I have to go cold turkey when I become re-obsessed. It's really all I'll be able to think about for the next few weeks and if I nurse this unhealthy attachment I'll never be able to get over it. I have to mentally prepare myself for the fact that there will only be 7 books and Harry may very well die at some point. Horrors!

Going back to bed now and getting up at a more reasonable time.

I'm afraid of re-reading the books because I know it'll put me in a Harry Potter coma for weeks on end.

Same here. I made the mistake of renting the movie last night (#3). The movie bugs me because they left out so much of the actual story. They could have included some critical pieces in only 20 minutes and it wouldn't have made the movie too long. Ugh. Maybe they'll make up for it in #4.

I've never gotten into the Harry Potter thing. I don't know that I ever will. I know a lot of people who have gotten into it and love it... And I have to give J.K. Rowling mad props for getting people to not only read again but also to get parents to read to their kids again-- passing a love of reading along to future generations... Certainly not an easy task in our TV obsessed culture.

Hopefully many of the younger set who have gotten into Potter and into Lord of the Rings will be inspired to later on read some of the classics-- Twain, Melville, Hemmingway, Fitzgerald, Dreiser (one of my personal faves), Hawthorne, Steinbeck, Thoreau, Dumas, Hugo, Thackeray, Hardy, etc. etc.

I hate waking up early and taking someone to the airport. It's a double whammy because you're grumpy since you woke up so early and you're grumpy because someone you love is leaving. It's a bad way to start your day!
