Harry Potter and the Major Obsession
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!!!!!

Vlad Dracul, known later in life as Vlad the Impaler, suffered more than any should at the hands of Mehmed, son of Sultan Murad. Of all the pain and indignities brought upon him at the behest of the future ruler of the Ottoman Empire, the curse was the worst. All the young Vlad can do is try to survive and plot his vengeance.
