Potter x Disney

HARRY POTTER DAY 2009!


I arrived at Disneyland a little late that day and so I missed the morning get together. Didn't get to sign up for the Coin Quest, after all... maybe next year?! I'm going to re-read all the books! Okay, I probably won't. Is there a Harry Potter wiki website I can peruse, maybe? Ha!

My friend, Julia, and I hung out for most of the day and spotted some wizards walking around, collecting coins. Although we didn't get to participate in the day long game, we were LUCKY enough to watch Stevie Wonder film for the ABC Christmas Special in front of the castle! So watch out for us... we might be on TV on Christmas day, dancing to Stevie's performance!

disneyland - STEVIE WONDER!


I think this free concert with a musical legend made having a Disneyland annual pass totally worth it!

Julia left early in the evening, and I was about to go home, myself-- but then another group of friends called me just in time to say that they just arrived at the park! We went to the night gathering of the Harry Potter fans. I took some photos (which was all I wanted to do) while they handed out prizes and be Potter geeks together. I thought it was adorable. I missed the days when I got together with my high school buddies just to nerd out on Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings... sigh!!!

There and Back Again

Sorry for all that crazy downtime. Um. I really have no excuse for it except for my own stupidity. That is... I somehow misplaced the files for the site and accidentally overwrote it while working on another website.

Yeah. Homer Simpson 'Do'h!' moment.

But now we are back, and hopefully... we'll stay awhile, with a change here and there on the site. Keep on watching and reading!

I dare say the new Hairy Pooner Harry Potter book came out, did it not? Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows. I missed all the Potter hootie-nannies last night. Instead, I went dancing at the Queen Marys with some friends. I'm a nerd who likes to dance, I can't help it. Plus, standing around in line with a bunch of Potterheads wasn't appealing enough.

Now, if the Weasley Twins were to be my date, then that's a whole different story! But that's pure fantasy in my head!

No, I haven't bought my copy. In fact, I never bought a Harry Potter book in my life-- my mommy buys them. She read them before I did and beat me on the head with them until I finally broke down. Great books, don't get me wrong, but the hype still boggles my mind.

I heard of a story of a certain webstore that "accidentally" shipped the books a few days before it released. Scholastic is throwing a tantrum over it, which has me all dumbfounded. If this has happened to any other books, no one would give a flying pooper over it. Fandom and hype does strange things to the world, I swear.

Ah well. I still look forward to this so-called last book anyways. Though I'm sure there's no way in hell I'm going to be able to avoid spoilers at this point. I'm not one of those who feels the need to read the entire book within a 24-hour period. First off all, I like to read leisurely. Second of all, I'm not crazy. Third of all, I like to actually sleep. Last of all... I'm not crazy.

To each their own though-- happy Potter time to all I hope!

we are purtiful

We are self-proclaimed girl-GEEKS who needed a place to write about it! We don't really do anything special with our lives, but we do enjoy the occasional comic book or fantasy film. Also, the occasional pie. With ice cream. Yeah. Ice cream.
