Friday, July 20th, at midnight the new Harry Potter book goes up for sale. I am so looking forward to it!!!! However, I am extremely concerned. Extremely!!!!! I don't know if you guys keep up with the news or not. Yesterday while sitting here at my "blog bar" in the kitchen drinking my morning elixir, coffee. Right there on the morning news they stated that someone, somewhere, had gotten hold of a copy of "Deathly Hallows," and had posted the pages that tells who dies. It was only up on the Internet for a couple hours, but HEY, that is like a zillionth of a second too long!!!!!
This is the issue. I got to thinking. That is an issue all to itself, me thinking. I mean, I am a thinker but I usually act and then I think. Back to the issue. I think I am going to have to lock myself up in my bedroom. No cable, no phone and no talking to anyone. Not even family, you never know when they will decide to stab you in the back or attempt to ruin your life forever. Yeah, well, that may be taking it a bit too far. But, what if someone knows what happens in the book? They know who dies and they let it slip? So absolutely no contact with the outside world until I get the book and finish reading it. Yeah, that'll work. Complete isolation.
But, tomorrow night is the Barnes & Noble Harry Potter party. I HAVE to go to that. What if while I'm meandering around the store, calmly knitting my little sockies I overhear someone talking about the plot. Or what if just at the last minute. At midnight, when the book actually goes on sale and I'm happily standing in line awaiting for my turn to purchase my copy and someone behind me or in front of me goes into some kind of trance and spills the beans? Can you see what is at issue here? Sara said I could wear her noise blocking headphones she uses while on the treadmill. That is a thought, but, well................vanity, vanity.
I've thought and thought and I cannot come up with a secure answer for this dilemma. If I can protect myself from any leakage until I get the book and get in the van I should be okay. Then I can rush home, lock myself in an empty bedroom and read, read, read. If I allow myself to be exposed to the outside world before I have completely finished the book I will be at a high risk of exposure. I cannot, and WILL NOT put myself through that kind of torture. You may want to consider your options as well. Think about it, I mean really think about what is at stake here.
Why? Why, oh why didn't I build that bomb shelter? It would have been perfect!!!!
I've had several asking about my bunnies, Zippee and Zappee. They have grown so much. I really like Zippee's hairstyle. She is the brown one. They both could do with a little grooming right now.
