Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

Only 8 more days!

That's right, people!

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, coming to a bookstore near you! Or, if you are a diehard Muggle such as I, it will be delivered STRAIGHT TO YOUR DOOR for hours of orgasmic reading pleasure! HOURS!

Wait. Did I say "orgasmic"? I meant "bombastic." No. "Fantastic"?

Seriously. I'm taking the day off. Don't call me. Or stop by. I will ignore you. A'ight?

That being said, I must mention that this girl? She frightens me. I'm not joking. Who's the crazed girly-fan NOW, eh? EH?!

Hold me, TGIM. Hold me tight.

I think Constantine might be okay with this one...she only stalks people that can form a sentence.

OUCH.

Wow. And I thought I was weird for being a 30 something fan of the "children's" books.

I mean, seriously! Back off my super-secret Greek Idol luvah, Kristine. I don't want to have to come on over there, now!

KC! For shame! The Harry Potter series is a CLASSIC!

Then again, I also have a soft spot for the Chronicles of Narnia (movie coming out in December!), The Hobbit, and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, so go on ahead and mock me if you will, people.

Mock me if you will.
;)

Okay. I have to get something off my chest. I, too, have re-read book 5 recently. YOU know, just in case I forgot anything.

What?! It could totally happen! Then I'd be all "What?!" and would have to go back and read it anyway! Sheesh!

BUT... I have also recently re-read book 4, because The Goblet of Fire movie is coming out this fall. I WAS reading it to my girls, too, but we had to give it up when they went out to AZ for the summer. Maybe I should call Grandma and let her know?... Heh. I totally should.

Oh, Bente. Bente, Bente, Bente...
Seriously. Get thee to the library. STAT.

Really Bente,
I was all like
"I'm not going to get on THAT bandwagon, I am way too cool to be a follower like all those OTHER Harry Potter freaks!"
And then I read my first Harry Potter book, and read all 5 in a row in one month. Totally hooked...TOTALLY! They are SOOO F'n great!!!!!

Jay-sus that girl has a screw loose. There is reading for fun and there is straitjacket restraining order anti-psychotic drug obsession.

I loved how you put A'aight. I love all your little fun speech thingys.

Blogger Bente commented:

Ok, ok I'll give them a go. But, um...I don't have a library card. ::ducking again:: Before you say anything, I'll get one. I just never got around to it after we moved...2 year ago.

Blogger Random and Odd commented:

OH HELL NO BENTE! you haven't read the Harry Potters?

I, like not-so-normal mom, read the whole series (hee hee, i wrote serious) in a month. By the last book I was, "Slooowww down Kristine, it's going to be awhile before you get another book...sllllooowww down. Okay, one more chapter."

CRACK. HP IS CRACK!

*cleansing breath*
gooooooooostraaaaabaaaaahhhhhh...

Seriously. How do people function without a library card? Huh?

And J.K. Rowling ain't a gajillionaire for nothin', ya know what I'm sayin'? She has made over a BILLION DOLLARS from HP! A BILLION DOLLARS! She's richer than the queen of England, who only has, what? a measly 600 million or so?! You gonna hurry to the library or what, Bente? Yeah. I thought so.

"HP is crack!"? Ooooooh, I like! And too true.

just finished book 5, and I am sad...I won't ruin it for those of ya'll who haven't come around yet, but oooohhhhh so sad! And right when I finished, I looked at my hubby and said, all "the ring" style..."Seven Days"
I am so beyond excited.
I reserved a copy at the local mall and I am seriously thinking about making that midnight drive over to pick up my copy. I'm kind of embarrassed, but not.

Aaaaaw! There, there, NSN Mom... I was sad, too. And I am sure there is more sadness to come.

Yikes. 7 more days!
