kate5kiwis: What to do if Harry dies...


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

What to do if Harry dies...

with all the hype surrounding HP, the miami herald has a few pointers on how to help the kids if Harry dies while facing his nemesis, He Who Must Not Be Named.
nope, we didn't queue to buy the book at 11.01am NZ time this morning.
so there's more than one HP fan in the house who is still holding his/her breath...
and will be for a few days, until we can bribe a Book Buyer to part with his/her copy...
*closes eyes to spoilers*
ohgosh, we simply CANNOT WAIT!!!!!
hubby spotted The Book late last night at almost half the price i *thought* it was... but he didn't get it, cos we all *said* we'd be ok to wait.
but upon the reception of The News, *poof!* went all my resolve.
i have had such a restless night!!!!!
at least i don't have to brave the queues at the shop when i leap in the car in fifteen minutes time...
but there will be FOUR pairs of eyes queueing to read the book here at home.
and there will be all sorts of Shushing Outside Distractions and "what page are you up to?" and "have you got to the part where Harrr.." "sh-u-u-u-u-ush!!!"
oh i am so On The Edge of My Seat.
*kate turns off computer and goes off in search of a secret hidey hole for 24 hours*

I have held the book nothing further.....yesterday Brad was up - and he wasn't spose to get it either...but then he looked at his watch and it was 11.01 and he though that was a sign - so he just *had to have it* and now he does. The whole idea of knowing that it is out there, but no having it is driving me a bit crazy...may just have to go for a trip to the big red shed.

abby, yeah, mummy text me when you were SECOND in the queue, and i resisted for 24 hours, but the force was too strong....

raych can't wait for me to finish it cos she desperately wants to talk about it!!!!
she burst into tears about four fifths of the way thru the book dramatically calling out, "no, NO!!! *NO*!!!!!!! i can't BELIEVE it!!! that CAN'T happen!!!!!!! NO!!!!!!!" etc... and then she wouldn't put it down until 11.30pm... she was fine by the end of the book. i read and read last night until i fell asleep, am only up to the RAB locket sequence.
so: this arvo i am taking The Lads to the pools-with-the-slide and i am gonna READ!!!!!!! READ!!!! READ!!!!
tell mummy that i think we need another weekend together to debrief the book lol.
