Harry Potter and the Major Obsession

For those who know me know that Harry Potter is not a little obsession with me. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a full-blown Potterhead. I don't memorize passages in the books or collect Ron and Hermione bobble head dolls, but I do anxiously await with jittery anticipation for the next movies. I would do the same for the books, but alas, there will be no more of those (at least that's current story.)

I bring this up today because as I was watching the morning news, a new Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 TV spot appeared with about 75% new footage that I had never seen before. I was even at Comic-Con and viewed the exclusive Harry Potter trailer there, (which no one has seen since) and still recognized new footage that has sent me into a Harry Potter tizzy.

I realize that it is less than one month now until opening day (November 19th -- in sharpie, circled, highlighted), but there is always that day where time begins to drag 'til that monumental day. Well, today is that day for me. It's a very familiar feeling, like when I waited for Christmas as a child.

Now, I know there are far more obsessed muggles out there than myself and I would love to hear from them about what they do to pass the time. As for myself, I watch all the previous movies and maybe re-read a book or two. I also keep telling myself that there will be a day in the near future where I will own the movie and be able to watch it whenever I wish. This does seem to help... a little.

Okay, obsessive muggles. What do you do?

By the way, 25 days and counting! AHHHHHHHH!!!!!

  1. By the way, I posted the TV spot I'm referring to in the blog. You can view it if you so wish.
