Can I just stop for a moment and say...
Okay. Thank you for letting me get this out of my system For some reason there is nothing that engages that inner excitement in me quite like the Potterverse can. But being an adult, I am very good and being in denial and pretending it is neither here nor there until the FREAKING TIME COMES.
I tried... (okay, so Sunday I forgot to try—there is no accounting for some people's attention span *shifty*) Monday. Tuesday. Wednesday...
EVERY. FREAKING. DAY.
But on Wednesday I LEARNED something... there is a blog called Pottermore Insider. (it's official—shhhhhh) that gives away the TIMES... well... by 3 hour windows, anyway... so TODAY... it is 8:30-11 Eastern time... sorry I don't have the GMT—I translated to what was relevant to me and promptly forgot the other...
But the NEXT one is so early British time that it is actually Friday night in the US... so for my fellow United Statesians, two chances today!!! (go to the Pottermore insider for specifics)
As for me....
I AM IN ALREADY!!!
Anyway... the 5th is ALSO my favorite Harry Potter book... followed by the 3rd and 3 is my second favorite number (because though 5 is first, 23 gets in on the 5 sub-clause)... okay... there is something shifty here... but I digress [and there was much rejoicing]
Anyway, on the 5th day of this contest I get in... which seems fitting and now you know why.
That might have been the long way to say that.
Okay, so I'm rambling... anyway... I am excited to see what they have in store, happy with my name... and OFF WORK TODAY!!!
You heard me... that 3 day weekend thing I once intended to do all summer is finally started... so I will be around some but I have ALSO finished first pass on this editing round, so I am trying to enter changes... plus I have two guests next week I need to write interviews for... So in and out.
I wish you all a great day and great weekend, and If you ARE in, congratulations! And if NOT and you want to be, GOOD LUCK!
Ha! Added In, as questions made me realized I skipped this: What IS Pottermore? A Harry Potter Website that is interactive--looks like a fair few games... hoping there is maybe also a little input on World building for that Hogwarts, a History that has been hinted at. The HP books will be available online too... the EXCITEMENT is she is letting a million people in EARLY for beta testing and input before it goes public.
