I can’t believe this is even up for debate.
I mean, really. How old am I? 25 or 95? Yeesh.
OK so unless you’ve been living under a rock OR are an anti-Potter-ite, you know that this is coming out NEXT FRIDAY.
And surely you know HOW STINKIN’ EXCITED I AM.
So…the only question is, when to go?
Do we go to the midnight showing on Thursday night? The rabid fangirl in me REALLY WANTS to do this. But the adult in me (yes, there is one. Yes, I let her out occasionally.) knows that I have to…y’know…get up and work on Friday morning. And coming home at 3:00am on a Potter-induced adrenaline rush probably isn’t conducive to a productive workday following.
Do we go to a showing on Friday evening? This is much more reasonable, and would cap off a week that already promises to be really awesome. But how dull! It just won’t be the same as going and being immersed in the crowd of dressed up supernerds, the anticipation…
Not to mention that this is my last chance to attend a HP midnight opening, since Jeff will be out of town next summer when Part II lands – so I’ll have to wait a day or two to see that one anyway.
Do I give myself one penultimate hurrah before the Harry Potter phenomenon winds down?
Are you going to a 12:01 show? Or a later one? Or not at all because you (mistakenly) think Harry Potter is lame?
