Weird Al -- with me

blah blah blah!

I'm not sure how I'm going to review this book, I'm having trouble doing it. Maybe because once it's reviewed, it's really and truly done. I think I'll re-read it and review it chapter at a time, as I'm reading it. That might work, I just basically breezed through it so reading it again might help me.

Anyway, I'm going to post photos from the party later...and also my vacation photos. I'm sure some of you want to see those shots! I know I want to share them :P

Anyway, something happened after the party. I'll tell you about the party in the picture post but after the party I went to the valet place where I took the car. I couldn't find a spot so I just took it to the valet outside. I asked them if they would be open for the party and that I might be out very late, they assured me that they'd be there. So I give them the car and park and head to the party.
Afterwords, I notice that nobody is there and I can't find the car. I decide to talk to the nearby security before deciding to panic. After a long and drawn out process, we find out that the valet I went to closed for the evening and they locked up the keys. I had called my mom during this process and she was going to pick me up in a friend's car. She has a set of keys obviously, and I would drive our car home. Nope, the security guy refused to let us do this. Nevermind the fact that
a. We know the car's plate number
b. We have a spare key
c. I have the valet ticket

By this time I'm crying from the stress and mom is yelling at the people. They refuse to let us take the car (we can't even find it!). So we eventually give up and drive home in the friend's car (he would take the car the following night).
I wanted to get out of the party with my book and start it right away. I got my book around 1:15 (the wait was horrible, I'll go into that later) and then this car deal. We got home at 3:30 and I couldn't calm down enough to start reading until 4:15, I only got three chapters done before having to crash.
What an experience eh? It was horrible! I finished the book 4:30 on the 22nd (Sunday morning). I would have finished sooner if I could have started it right away, oh well.

Anyway, yeah that was that. Figured I'd share that with you!

So, look forward to the party pictures today and the beginning of my vacation photos and details!

G'nite everybody!
Weird Al -- with me

I can't believe it's over

The internet is a bit boring without LJ! I was reading a post-DH Drarry when it went kablooey.

The party itself was pretty cool. I went to the Grove, to Barnes & Noble. I met up with randomneses, who I met at the OotP premiere. I talked to some other fans and got my photo taken with "Hagrid" and "Harry"...really bad. Oh well, I have the picture on my corkboard, hehe. I got a 'butterbeer' from Starbucks (ew, Starbucks!). The drink was actually very good, haha. I got in line to get my pre-order bracelet (which I'm keeping). The Remus Lupins were performing that night so I watched them, they are brilliant! I've seen some other Wizarding Rock bands and I think they rank with Draco & The Malfoys. The lead singer is very cute..and really nice! I got my photo taken with him and he autographed the cd I bought. I got both albums and a shirt...the shirt is sooo small! I'll be lucky to fit in it even when I lose all my weight, oh well!

At 11:30 they shut the doors on us to prepare. Then at midnight (no countdown or cheer, ew!) they opened the doors to start letting us in. I had to wait nearly two hours to get my book. I spent the beginning of the wait talking to some people and I got my The Remus Lupins stuff at that time. After Ashley went to get her book I talked with some people on their theories (nearly all my predictions came true!). After Ashley came out with the book I took a photo of her with her book and she took a photo of me with her copy, then she dashed off to get home and read xD

I was tempted on going over to the nearby K-Mart even though I hate that store. The only thing stopping me was that I pre-ordered the special edition. Well, at 1:30ish my letter was called so I went into the bookstore and talked with some people in line.

I got my book and then all the car drama happened.

Well, like I said before I'll probably review chapter by chapter. I can't review until I read it again. I'll probably read 5-10 chapters a day and post them.

Anyway, pictures from the party!

Oh, before I forget, Ashley I sent you the photos from the party. Do you want any copies of the Remus Lupins show pictures? I got a few :)
