Mr Potter is back!!! It's visible in the by the way he receives mentions in various blogs. It's visible in the "Book now and get blah blah free" posters in the malls. It's visible in the way I mention him at least twice in every conversation with my boy these days. It's visible in the way I'm re-reading all my Harry Potters to gear up for the movie release and the final book release. It's visible in the way I'm planning my work life so that I can take the Monday post the release off to be able to finish off my book (assuming 3 days locked up in my room are enough!). It's visible in the way I sneak a peak at my pre-booked voucher every couple of days for the 21st July book release!!!!
I cannot contain my excitement! I've already gone and seen all the youtube trailors of the movie. I've joined the orkut community for the 7th book and was extremely upset that I had forgotten who Aberforth Dumbledore is and so decided to revise my books before the final one.
I'm 26, people my age have children who are old enough to read these books but here I am biting my nails in excitement! There's nothing like the magic she can brew up!
The other day, my friend on hearing I'm reading the book told me she wished she were a witch. Fairly arbit statement to make. But then she clarified she meant the teenage witch varieties!! It's so cool huh how witches, the one thing we used to be petrified of as kids, are suddenly aspirational for kids (and adults like me) nowadays. To be able to do magic is cool....... unlike Joan of Arc who was burnt cause they thought she were a witch........
Hmmm....tangential thoughts. Just thought I'd write anyway.......since it's been so long.........
Got myself a reliance phone after a whooping 7.5K bill.........of course reliance customer care SUCKS!!!!!!! I went to get a connection and the customer care guy just stood there gaping dreamily at his girlfriend and I had to rap the table at least 10 times to catch his attention. And I've had to return to the store every couple of days regarding some strange connection problem or the other! And they're unhelpful!!! I HATE THEM!!!! Phew! Good to get it out of my system then!
Anyway, am off now. Awesome Sridevi Jeetinder movie on that I can't resist!!!!
