I wish triathletes rode brooms

So, I might be the world's biggest Harry Potter fan. OK, maybe not quite. But I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan. I go to sleep every night under a giant blanket with Harry playing quidditch on it. I wake up every morning with a Deathly Hallows tattoo on my wrist. I have read all the books over, and over, and over again. I have been to 2 midnight IMAX movie showings and I went to the midnight release party at Barnes and Noble for the 7th book.

(I have never dressed up as a character. I know where to draw the line).

I would freaking SCHOOL anyone in Harry Potter book trivia.

I own the first 6 movies. Now while I am fond of all of them just because they are Harry Potter movies, some of them annoy me by leaving out giant plotlines, adding in things that didn't happen, or making changes to what did happen. While I understand that a movie cannot encompass everything in a book - some of the movies are better than others.

That being said. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I was phenomenal. It's been a while since I read the book (probably a year) but since I've probably read it 10 times already, I'm pretty familiar with it. :) The movie really nailed it! It was funny, scary (just ask Matt who was sitting next to me every time I leaped out of my seat in fright), emotional, and freaking spot-on with the book. Some minor things were left out.. but not much!

See, I am not all about bikes and running and whining about bikes and running!

I have other interests! Harry Potter! horses! and.. uh.. boys?


  1. lol, totally with you. They need to make quidditch possible!!

  2. I LOVE Harry Potter and I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who has read the books multiple times :)

    So glad to hear the movie followed the book pretty closely. I was pretty fired up over what I thought was a poor adaptation of the 6th book.

    I really, really want to to the Harry Potter themepark in Florida and get a butterbeer.

  3. I heard they do Quiddich matches in Central Park.

    How?!?!?! I ask....

  4. YES! the 6th movie was sooooo disappointing! and I TOTALLY want to go to Harry Potter LAND.. if I ever have any money left over after doing Ironman!

  5. emotional?? were you one the verge of tears in the theater?


I love creepy blog stalker friends! Don't be afraid to leave me a comment!
