I have to be awake in 4 hours for work… because I just got home from watching my childhood end.
I saw the final chapter of Harry Potter close onscreen tonight (this morning?). I am grateful, as my sisters said, that the books will always be there, preserved, for me to read.
This is the first midnight showing I attended and as it was the final opportunity, I had to dress up! I have more photos than this and I will post them after I sleep, but here I am in my car mirror.
… oh no wait, that’s Rita Skeeter after she went brunette (you didn’t know she went brunette? You must have missed that part of the book…)
UPDATE: I was not happy with most of the pictures we took before going to King’s Cross, I mean, the movie theater, so I only have this photo of my sisters (Hermione and Tonks). Tonks is doing her pig nose, obviously:
The rest of this 7QT will be quotes from my sisters chronically quotable nannyees (those kids whom she nannies). All names have been changed:
My sister and the kids were talking about getting shots at the doctor.
Hermione (what? I’m sticking with a theme, here): “One time I had a shot and it felt really good.”
Ron: “It couldn’t feel as good as a hot dog would feel. Or a piece of pizza.”
Friend from pool, Harry: “Have you ever been to the solar system?”
My sister: “No I’ve never been.”
Harry: “Well, I’m going to go one day, I just have to pick a day.”
Harry walks away.
Ron: “I’m going tell him that he needs to wait until he’s a grown up because he might forget his oxygen suit.”
Hermione: “What if your nose is underneath of your mouth?”
About an 80-year-old woman at the pool with notoriously healthy-sized teeth:
Ron: “That lady never frowns!”
Hermione to my sister: “I’m splashing water up your boogery nose!”
