Ive pre booked my premier seats weeks ago
I have a countdown on my phone
I recorded all the interviews last week on daybreak
I have worked out which charactor suits all my workmates
I get a little pang whenever I think about Fred, Lupin and Tonks
I feel like its the run up to Christmas when I was small
Ive even planted a pumpkin

We are going to watch a hp film every night in the run up to it cant wait smile

a) you didn't pre-book it, you just booked it. Get a grip on your vocabulary, voldynipplything.

b) you watch Daybreak. Just get a grip.


<gives up>

Obviously I hope you enjoy it.

Punkatheart Sat 09-Jul-11 23:30:45

You will love it - trust me!

My daughter has seen it twice and at fourteen, is not easily impressed!

I have Snape wallpaper on my computer and have my fancy dress outfit all ready except the cloak!

And I am re-reading it for the zillionth time.

And I KNOW i am going to cry - a lot.

But I don't know what Daybreak is...

My DC's aged 13 and 15 are claiming it is like their childhoods are ending now there is no more HP films or books.
I will never forget taking DS to see the first film. He was 5 and he stood up at the end and said "i want to see that again"

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 09-Jul-11 23:38:42

FoofusScrimgeour Sat 09-Jul-11 23:42:21


What in God's name is a "Cowntdown"? Jeez.

Booandpops Sat 09-Jul-11 23:43:43

Me too, so excited but dreading it too! I cried loads Thursday watching the premier. I would have loved to go but can't lave my two kids for 3 days to camp. So sad it's over. Will miss H R &H They are all grown up and leaving us sad
None of my friends get me. They think I'm mental! Got tickets for sat. Plus I'm seeing it 3d in a few weeks and also have tickets for our local cheap cinema in sept £1!!!

At least I now get to read and watch with my little ones and see it all through their eyes.

We are also having a Harry potter week this week. Got to be done!

Punkatheart Sat 09-Jul-11 23:47:00

..I like Cowntdown....but don't milk it...

(rolls on floor)

VoldemortsNipple Sat 09-Jul-11 23:49:27

punkaheart HOW did your DD see it. Thats just not fair!

DD was 5 too bruffin, by which time she was already going to bed every night to the sound of Stephen Fry reading the audio books.

Im doing a sponsored charity walk up Snowdon that day and have warned everybody, if they break their leg or are not down the mountain in time, they will be left behind.

FoofusScrimgeour Sat 09-Jul-11 23:52:11

Is the countdown an iphone app?

VoldemortsNipple Sat 09-Jul-11 23:53:58

Countdown is an app on my phone, tells us how many days, minutes and seconds left till HP starts, although its a bit out. I think its counting down american time smile

FoofusScrimgeour Sat 09-Jul-11 23:54:45

Thanks, I'm on it <searching>

DreamsInBinary Sat 09-Jul-11 23:55:04

It is amazing. My sister won première tickets so we saw it on Tues. You will not be disappointed!

Punkatheart Sat 09-Jul-11 23:56:25

Well her daddy has worked ten long years on it. Up at 5am...home at silly hours. So a cast and crew showing, then a red carpet premiere - deserved, really. So we have quite an attachment and gratitude to the franchise. It has fed and clothed us for a decade. Labour of love for a lot of people, whatever anyone thinks of it. So enjoy and remember all the people behind the scenes...but you will cry. Oh yes.

punkatheart envy

The Dukes Theatre in lancaster has done the theatre up Harry style complete with a Griffindor common room and are giving out Harry glasses, choclate frogs and butterbeer. Im thinking of taking a day off work and getting the train up there

Punkatheart Sun 10-Jul-11 00:12:01

.....not so sure about the butterbeer but how lovely for the rest. Great to see such passion!

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 10-Jul-11 00:24:24

The Lancaster thing sounds great, as does the premier. envy

I saw The Half Blood Prince at one of its premiers and briefly met Alan Rickman (fans self). It was amazing.

HowlingBitch Sun 10-Jul-11 00:26:00


Ahem, Remus. Do elaborate. smile

VoldemortsNipple Sun 10-Jul-11 00:26:37

Mmm butterbeer, its probably butterscotch flavour milkshake. Isnt that what its like in universal studios.

Is your DH working on getting Leavesdon Studios ready for the HP tours next year.

We are going down to London next year for the olympics and will be doing the tour. They recon it will take about 3 hours. Can you imagine 3 hours walking in Harry's footsteps!
