    sweet! btw, I am taking pre-orders for HP and the Order of the Phoenix on paperback. No deposit but if you order and don't buy I have to set my jawa after you :p

    The cost will be 8.50 thats 15% off the cover price and does not include shipping.

    Wow, I was wondering how much OotP would be on paperback. That's pretty hefty.

    Thank goodness I don't need it!

    Well, fandango FINALLY posted additional times for Rio. The 7:30 would've been better, but since we already committed (though we haven't got our tickets yet), we'll still plan on the 7 pm showing, yes?

    edit: uh-oh. Just was checking fandango to see if tickets were available for the 7:00 showing. it couldn't get to the purchase page. hopefully, it was just a program or access error, not a "sorry, we're outta tickets for that showing" type of error. We'll go get our tickets tonight, though, so I guess we'll find out...

    edit #2: never mind, back to normal. *whew*

    We got tix tonight for the 7pm showing. Though the peon at the ticket window said we could exchange for other times, but no refunds. So we'll be there at 6-ish!

    Who else is going? Too bad Lindsey can't make it that night! :_|

    yeah it sucks but I understand her job-I have been there. One thing I like about my job-and one of the few things-is that we close at 5:30.

    Ever so slightly.

    I am too, I just can't afford to count down the hours. It'll make my sentence here ... err, the rest of my workday ... that much longer...

    Oh, and I didn't get any tie. Alivan's had the new style for $25 and the old style for $20. But then I saw on the WB HP shop last night the new style tie for $20, and it has a cool Gryffindor (or Slytherin) crest on it as well. But I don't recall seeing the crest on the ties that the kids wear, so I haven't been able to decide which one to get.

    Needless to say, I intend on being hot by wearing me scarf! :-B

    I was also gonna bring some HP candies to share, but I didn't have a chance to get any.

    5 hours!!!

    i think they have creasts on them this time around. I am wishing at the moment I had another shirt to wear.

    have you noticed what I am doing with the colors yet?

    It hadn't struck me until you mentioned it.

    HOUSE COLORS!!!! Except Slytherin is Green and Silver, isn't it?

    I'm gonna have to look up some pics to see if I can get clear shots of the tie. Might have to pick up the WB version. FREE SHIPPING BABY!!!!

    Oh, and Julie, my totally lovable wife, went to TRU at Indian School and picked up some chocolate frogs, jelly slugs, ice mice, and droobles best blowing gum! unfortunately, just enough for us to try. But, I'll bring the jelly slugs. She bought a bag for the boys and one for her and I. We had the boys' bag at lunch. Jonathan wasn't too crazy about them. They are gum-drop like consistency and texture. They're all right. But I was really hoping for some Fizzing Whizbees or some Acid Pops. I'll have to keep looking...

    Well, I believe Hufflepuff is Blue and yellow. Then you could do ... hmmmm. I don't know if the books ever mentioned school colors for beauxbatons and durmstrang.

    3 hours... bababaaa

    when i looked it up it showed black and yellow on the school crest

    [image=http://www.harry-potter-games.com/Images/HogwartsCrest.jpg]

    The Hogwarts school crest or heraldic shield is split into four sections, each representing one of the houses founded by the Hogwarts four. Top left is the rearing lion of Gryffindor house on a red background. Top right is the sinuous snake of Slytherin house, on green. Bottom left is Hufflepuff's badger on yellow and bottom right is the raven of Ravenclaw on blue. The school motto beneath the crest is latin, and translates approximately to 'Never tickle a sleeping dragon'. This is similar to the phrase let sleeping dogs lie, with the humourous magical twist which makes the Harry Potter books so special.

    Ahhh, you are correct. Ravenclaw is Blue and yellow. Hufflepuff is black and yellow. Notice that yellow or gold is prominent in all house colors, EXCEPT Slytherin? Hmmmmmm....

    LadyNab would be enjoying this. Too bad she's at work.

    Oh wait, so am I. And you, varza! (just a little while longer...)
