Guess what LilZ and I are doing at 11:59pm tonight? We’re going to see Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. This book was my favorite before I read Book 6, so I am really looking forward to it. However, since this was the longest, and therefore will have the most cut out of it, I’m also really nervous. I understand they can’t leave EVERYTHING in from a book that long, but I just hope I walk away from it thinking they still did a good job. The previews make it look brilliant, but you just never know…
I’m very much looking forward to how the play out the battle with Voldemort at the end. I have a very strong image of that scene in my head since I’ve read the book over five times. I know that they probably won’t recreate exactly what I see, but I hope they do that scene justice.
I find it very telling that my first major outing sans NikkiZ is to a Harry Potter event. MrZ hasn’t even questioned whether or not this outing is a good idea since she could possibly wake up VERY hungry while I’m gone. He knows that asking me to bypass a Harry Potter tradition with LilZ (we go to the first showing of EVERY Harry Potter movie) is like asking me to go without Krispy Kreme donuts. Besides, he has “emergency” formula in case she gets really hungry and I’m going to try to pump some milk before we go.
NikkiZ will understand when she gets old and sees my Harry Potter obsession firsthand. And then she’ll be very afraid.
