It's almost time!!!

It is now less than five days (4 days 14 hours, actually) until the release of Harry Potter #6 - and I am so excited! I'm planning on watching the movies (#1 is my favorite) and reading the books (#3 is my fav) until 11:45 pm Friday night, when I will go and get the book and try and finish it before my husband gets his hands on it :) I feel like I'm nine and it's December 21. If you are a HP fan like me, you've probably already heard about these great sites:
J.K.Rowling - the author has a very fun site
Scholastic - mostly geared for the young readers, but the trivia game is challenging
The Leaky Cauldron - the best fan site out there - lots and lots of information
If you have a recipe for Pumpkin Pasties, send it my way!

Sheila, I love you. But, OH MY GOD Harry Potter???

Okay Okay, I'm only kidding. I have never read a single Harry Potter book or seen any of the movies. But my 12 year old brother LOVES them...

The Goblet of Fire was my favorite book. I pre-ordered my Harry from Amazon back in January and a couple months ago they emailed me saying it would actually be delivered on Saturday the 16th as long as someone was there to receive it! yay!

Oh, yes, Julia, I am a HUGE HP fan. So is Stuart - he's probably read the books more times than me. They are quite compelling. You should read the first one. You'll probably want to read them all. :)

And I found recipes for pumpkin pasties AND butter beer. (I found lots of recipes for butter beer, and one calls for REAL beer and butterscotch schnaps. I doubt that's the kind they sell to kids at boarding schools!)

Pumpkin pasties?? Why do you want to wear pumpkins on your--

Oh. Never mind.

Sheila said...

Hahaha. You don't wear them! They are little pumpkin pies - you cut circles of dough, put the filling inside, fold and crimp. Bake, eat, yum.

You're just jealous, huh? :)
