Just got back from the Harry Potter premier, quite excellent. Makes me want to be magical, or at least British, despite your horrid weather Kay (which does look really nasty). I was shocked when Sciarrino and I showed up almost two hours early and the lines were wrapped all the way around the building made up of hundreds of people. A big even for Salem. The air conditioning was great, but the best might have been the overheard conversation of two guys in cloaks:

First guy: "She made me feel bad about where I am in my life."

Second guy: "You’re the manager of a comic book store, it doesn’t get any better than that."

So good I had to take it down right away so I could remember the wording exactly. Now I’m back at home. It’s 2:50 in the morning and still 80 degrees in here, and 75 outside (!) so it’s a slow go on the cooling off inside. I’m off to stick my feet in ice water.

  1. Josh & I went to the 7:00 showing of License to Wed to get out of “it’s sweaty out here” and there was already a line of dressed up Harry Potter kids. But hey- if it was 102 out & I was dressed in head to toe black & in some sort of cape, I’d be inside too.

  2. You Harry Potter fans are crazy. At least it feels like summer where you are…Here in Vermont–straight rain for almost 2 weeks! Sigh
