Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows(Don’t worry. No spoilers here. And the first one of you who even hints at anything in the story gets a kick in the shin. Just so y’know.)

So the plan was to spend the last two weeks re-reading J. K. Rowling’s engaging tale of the little orphaned muggle boy who suddenly discovers he’s a wizard. It’s a wonderful yarn that appeals to our childhood fantasies of one day being informed we are next in line for the throne, that we are not ordinary or average at all, but rather very special princesses and princes – only better. In the case of this fabulous fairy tale, we get to have magic.

By the time Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was released this morning, I expected to be just finishing up Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and could thus move right on through the story continuously.

Well, events unfolded (as they tend to do) in unforeseen twists, and I am only half-way through Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. In between sessions of writing and re-writing The Lilith Quotient (which barely resembles the version on this blog now), I zipped right through the Sorcerer’s Stone (or Philosopher’s Stone on the far side of The Big Puddle), merrily moved through the Chamber of Secrets, and was freely flowing through Prisoner of Azkaban.

Then, as some of you know, Aunt Helen – Savior of Thanksgivingfell ill. She got better, got worse, got better, got worse. She’s looking and sounding much better, but the long-term prognosis is not so good. I may give a better accounting of her condition a little later, or I may just let The Boy handle that. I’m kind of having issues discussing that myself.

So, despite the fact that I still have half of Prisoner of Azkaban left, and Goblet of Fire, Order of the Phoenix, and Half-Blood Prince still ahead, I was there. I was there before the doors opened. For the first time in my life, I was standing in the line before the sales clerk’s key entered the lock to begin the day of business.

My pre-paid express line voucher in hand, my palms all sweaty, my nasty recurring headache raging behind my eye, I was there. No coffee yet, no shower yet (it was a very late night of restlessness – please forgive me all you Jacksonvillians who stood downwind), barely a lick and a promise to my rat’s nest of hair, I braved the freezing cold 75 degree weather, and secured The Precious.

It is mine, and you can’t have it.

    I hate you. 🙂 Mine hasn’t come yet. According to UPS.com it’s been “in transit to final destination” since 11 yesterday morning. I should so still be asleep right now, but I can’t sleep in anticipation of the UPS man knocking on my door. *sigh*

  6. JanieBelle says:

    Martyne, I’ll be there when I can. I’m spending a bit of time visiting Aunt Helen in the hospital, and the headache has eased up for the moment, but I’m not counting any chickens just yet.

    As for you other two…

    Kisses

  7. Amanda says:

    Oh, but we love you, JanieBelle. 🙂

  8. JanieBelle says:

    Oh and you know I love you, too.

    But now I can’t visit your blog because I clicked there early this morning and found a post on Deathly Hallows.

    I destroyed the mouse trying to click the back button before I accidentally saw something.

    I have to wait ’til that drops off the front page now.

    😦

    Kisses

    I am so thinking about Aunt Helen. I wish her all the best. My sentiments are with you JanieBelle and I look forward to a favourable outcome. I only want the best for you and yours.

  10. JanieBelle says:

    Thank you Martyne.

    I’m just back from the hospital. She’s sleeping.

    Yesterday she was sitting on the edge of the bed, which is hopeful.

    Kisses

  11. […] As I mentioned a few posts ago, Aunt Helen, Savior of Thanksgiving and Feeder of Stray Marines in Need, has recently fallen ill. […]

  12. I agree with you! its a great book, but too bad it ends…I feel so empty putting it down after so many years waiting for it…

  13. JanieBelle says:

    Hi Anton!

    Oh, don’t you dare say another word! I STILL haven’t managed to get to it, what with Aunt Helen’s funeral and all.

    I’ll be sure to let you know what I thought once I’ve finished, though.

    Thanks for dropping by!
