HARRY POTTER MANIA!!

Anyone who knows us knows that we are huge HP fans. Truth be told, I was into it first and started reading aloud to get Allen interested because he didn't believe that the books were as good as I said they were. So the final book comes out in about 2 weeks and we can hardly contain our excitement nor our concern for Harry as the prophesy must be fulfilled in this last book. In preparation for book #7 we wanted to re-read book #6. Unfortunately, book #6 is no longer sitting on our shelf. (I am pretty sure that Annie took it, though she denies it completely.) Not to worry - resourceful Allen scoured the local libraries online to find one that had a copy. The Calabasas library had 2 copies. We checked them both out. Problem is, 2 copies means 2 readers and it has become a competition now -- who is more dedicated and has read the furthest? Yours truly, of course (and Al even had a head start!).

In the midst of our frantic catch-up reading, the next movie has come out, tonight in fact. I absolutely refused to go to a midnight showing because that's just silly. It's a movie and I am crabby without my nightly 8 hours of peaceful slumber. We negotiated and decided that we would go Wednesday night at 7:30 instead. I wanted to wait for the weekend, but Al was going without me if I didn't at least give in to Wednesday at a reasonable hour (he really wanted the midnight showing). He bought our tickets tonight to ensure they wouldn't be sold out tomorrow. I am sure we will have to arrive early to stand in line as well... I guess Mr. Harry Potter is worth it!

We report back after the showing! Stay tuned!

Seems like I've been at your mom's a couple of times when you have called lately...I'd surely like to see you. Tim and I will be coming to LA the last weekend of this month. I have no idea of california geography so I don't know if that's anywhere near you or not. We're coming in on thursday night and will have Friday to play, Tim has a seminar all day Saturday and the seminar people will feed us Satirday night.
Love you guys!
