From the magic world to the muggle world – the hype, the leak and the wait…

Beyond the simple sadistic pleasure of spoiling someone else’s anxiety and quelling someone else’s pure enthusiasm, the ignominious acts of the potter party poopers fail to sink into any comprehensible brain cell that I have left. They just deserve complete ignorance from those of us who still believe in some order in this chaotic world.

9:36 PM – 2 hours and odd to go. Even though I wouldn’t do it any other night, I am actually thinking of driving to Barnes and Noble, where I have already pre-ordered my “hallows” copy. The reason why it makes this drive all the more stupid and at the same time desperately selfish is the fact that I have to wake my son up & put him in the car and take him with me in his sleep, as my better half enjoys a well-deserved short weekend vacation with her friends somewhere in Lake Eerie(?). Well, this way – I may actually get to read the book tonight and may even complete reading the book by tomorrow night thus giving me a very short window of time within which I have a chance of ignoring the poopers.

More on the book, the magic, the Harry Potter world, Rowling and the stupid retailers..later.


Besides fantasizing about being a Peter Gibbons at least for a couple of days at my work, I think I have a long way to go to realize some of the other fantasies. But like any ambitious man out there, I will get there!
