Friday Looks UP

The glass place will have my new windshield on Monday, so I'll be coming to work late that day. And I'll only have to pay $100 on it. I just wish they had been right when they said they had it in stock. Friday afternoon is better for taking off than Monday morning. Because I won't be able to sleep in on Monday, and I was going to manage an hour of FREE time taking off this afternoon. :( Oh well. That's life. At least I'm only out $100. And I have it now to spend.

I'm waiting on pins and needles for Harry Potter tonight. I'll nap after work, and head out to the bookstore around 10pm. That's when my friend Dee should be getting off work. Her man and Josh are going to spend the evening playing L5R at the gaming store and then we'll meet. I'll be opening the book as soon as I get back home. Hence the nap. I brought book 6 to work with me, and I'm considering skimming through it this afternoon. Just to remind myself of some of the goings on it in. Just don't know if I will actually make it that far or not. The whole car thing destroyed the morning for me. But at least it's settled.

I kinda dread the HP party tonight. Our BAM moved into a newer but much smaller location and it will likely be PACKED. The old location had the same number of chairs, but more open space to sit on the floor. The new one doesn't. I think it has 6 chairs, maybe 15 in the coffee shop, and no spare space. But oh well. I intend to have the book, so I will just have to suffer. :)

It might even be worth it. I will probably post a brief review of the book after I finish reading it, but I promise to avoid any real spoilers. I won't say much because I know a lot of people won't have read it yet. Or at least not finished. it.

Y'all have a fantastic weekend, and happy reading to anyone who plans to pick up the last book!

While I am not a Harry Potter fan, I think the hoopla and stuff that goes w/ the book release is really cool!

Have fun, enjoy the book!

Sounds like you got a good deal on the windshield.

Enjoy reading this weekend!

Glad that your day got better. Bummer about the windshield.

The big book went on sale here at midnite - I saw the kids living up at about 8pm - they were all dressed up in character - it was nice to see. Harry really means alot to them. I haven't personally read any of the books, I am more of the movie fan for him - but I do hope that they don't kill him off like the media is predicting. It would be a shame.

Have a great time reading Harry P. I haven't read the book (and only saw the first movie), but I know the feeling of being very very involved in a novel. It's great fun when you know you have a good one. Enjoy
