The Half Blood Prince

Oh my gosh Oh my gosh Oh my gosh!!!! I am sitting in my apartment FREAKING out. I cannot explain how excited I am. A long long time ago, when I was young, I started reading the Harry Potter books. I loved them. I read the first 3 and then stopped. My family continued to read them and they are still big fans. This last year Grant downloaded the first book on Limewire so he could listen to something while he traveled long hours on Rugby trips. I made fun of him because he never really got into Harry Potter and I was surprised that he wanted to listen to it, but also excited because I have always loved Harry Potter. Well he finished that first book in one day. Then downloaded the second and finished that in just two days. (You might think well of course they go that fast when you are listening and not reading but listening to something for 20+ hours is in fact a REALLy long time). Grant started to notice that he would get to class as fast as he could just so he could be early and listen. (hahahaha which just killed me) He couldn't find the third one anywhere (maybe it was a sign we needed to BUY the books on cd instead of download them...he he..) and so he read it. This is a picture of him reading the end of Book 3 to me. Harry Potter: Prisoner of Azkaban.

 Then we listened to the fourth. (Here is where I jumped in. This is when we would both
 listen separately on our IPods and be at home at the same time and even in the same room and not talk for hours because we were both at different parts. We were too impatient to wait for the other to catch up). And then we listened to the 5th on the way out here.

He couldn't find the 6th one to download anywhere (again another sign that we are totally doing something illegal... but that is besides the point) and so we have been reading it together in the mornings. Ha YES we read out loud to each other. Its great to use as motivation for Grant too, if he gets a certain amount of sales... we can read.
ANYWAY I just had to give all that background because....... dun dun DUN we have been waiting for the trailer for the 6th movie to come out forever! First it was supposed to come out in front of Narnia: Prince Caspian. Then "The Dark Knight". Then "Get Smart". Then "The Mummy". And all I could find were stupid things fans had put together on You Tube (so annoying). Finally a teaser Trailer came out. Key Word: TEASER. A whopping 15 seconds long. This is what I had waited so long for? NO WAY.


And then Finally the OFFICIAL trailer for Harry Potter: The Half Blood Prince came out! I can't stop watching it. Grant is going to be so excited!

Hey guys! Glad you are having fun in DC. What a great place to live. We should switch lives for a weekend (like on the movie The Holiday- Brittany I bet you love that movie just like me!:) and have you guys live out here in Grand Cayman while we tour DC. Let's plan it. I do have one question... how in the world did you program your blog to show how recent your friends updated their blogs? I want to do that with ours, but I can't figure it out...

So I have only seen the first Harry Potter, I have never read or watched any others! I know, I am crazy!! But looks like Harry Potter has come a LONG ways, who knew Harry Potter could be so SCARRY!! That does not look like it's for young viewers! But then again, everyone I know who is obsessed with them are well into adulthood :O)

But the reason why each movie gets darker and darker is because VOLDEMORT gets stronger and stronger.
