I have been thinking about this for awhile now...I have read the books countless times and I have been listening to the audio cd's. Although, sadly, my CD player is broken with the library's CD's inside and I can not get it open. But, anyhow, for years now, I have always got my "fix" I guess you could call it by coming in to these forums. But lately, I have noticed they are not nearly so active. That saddens me. People have said the HP mania won't last, but I believe it is a classic for many many years to come. (Not the movies, just the books!). I just wonder if anyone feels the same. And I was hoping someone else might start a new post too!!!!!

I notice that we go in spurts.

I also don't remember seeing this thread when I looked in yesterday, but it says Tuesday... H'mm. Could just be me though.

I checked at 5 this morning and there was nothing in this forum or the Deathly Hallows forum. For some reason your post just appeared. Even though I write notes in spurts, I still check in a couple of times a day to enjoy the friendships we have formed. Don't get discouraged!

mama tina,
It saddens me also that so few of us keep posting things. Some of the discussion groups have gone a lllooonnnggg time without being added on to. Come on folks. Where is your imagination. I have one that is Lyrics to Songs "adjusted" to be from HP. I'm almost the only submitter. Some people have written, saying they like my efforts (Thank you), but I love reading what everyone else has to say. What to do now . . . ? Does that imply that we all need to get a life? Okay, so what. I have a life, and I enjoy having HP as part of that. Hey, I even went to a competitor of Amazon to order their exclusive 3-D offerings of DH 1 and 2. (I won't name the place, but buying them there seemed to be the best alternative.) Is reading and posting getting a fix? Maybe. It's certainly more of a fix than knowing that Lucas will issue Star Wars AGAIN (it just came out on Blu-Ray) in 3-D in February (he said so on the Scream Awards.) How many times do we have to shell out for his 6 movies? Why can't he come up with a new angle, a new idea? Oh, yeah, he's in Hollywood, and nothing new is ever really appreciated.

"....Hollywood, and nothing new is ever really appreciated...."

(Seems to hold true in other countries too, or we wouldn't have so many book- vs- movie complaints....)

Anyway. HP is something I rarely get to discuss live, and so I'm here.

And we're glad you are!

Friends - Tonight is the 30th anniversary of that dreadful night when James and Lily Potter were murdered by Voldemort. A toast to their memory.

Also to Sir Nicholas de Mimsy Porpington (aka Nearly Headless Nick) who was executed in 1492. Alas, the blunt axe failed to do what it's supposed to do, and Sir Nicholas ended being excluded from the Headless Hunt :(

Thanks for the reminders! Our Hallowe'en festivities are done with the Thursday before the actual date, so I nearly forgot this year....

Why Thursday? My mother in law, currently residing in assisted living celebrated Halloween last Thursday as well. We had about 40 Trick or Treaters this year. Way down from previous years.

For a change, the weather here was perfect, and we must have had close to 100 little (and not so little) ghouls. While there were several witches, I only had one Harry Potter. A little guy, maybe a kindergartner.

1593: Our festivities actually begin a few weeks in advance, with a few of the smaller towns having their Hallowe'en parades on the Saturdays preceding the Big Stuff. The Big Stuff is the County Seat's parade, usually the Tuesday before the last Thursday of the month; Trick- or- Treat, usually that Wednesday by agreement among the larger towns (to prevent looting-- otherwise parents drive their kids all over the county to all the Trick- or- Treat nights to stock up on free candy. Very expensive for the givers and cuts out the locals when people run out.) The last Thursday of the month is for *our* Hallowe'en parades-- the Pet Parade at 4:30 and the Big Parade after supper.

Friday is HS Football for the whole region if not the whole Commonwealth (except for the fields that don't have lights yet, then it's Saturday afternoon), and the Monday after is the rain date. This year, it was also Trick- or- Treat in some communities and the surrounding counties, but they aren't on our schedule.

Confused yet? Good.

Seriously confused....but I did celebrate the "Fourth of July" on Saturday the 3rd one year while visiting Salt Lake City due to Blue Laws.

Happens. I can see where a lot of the citizens would prefer not to have loud and possibly alcoholic celebrations on a Sunday. Honestly, I can see their point, too. It's not quite as silly as celebrating most holidays on Mondays, really.

What to do now...

I've been bitten by the lego bug, and now I can't stop myself from collecting all those Harry Potter legos of yesteryears :(

My husband would probably cry if I started bringing HP legos into the house also!!
