Past Couple of Days

Filed under: 100 Days of Summer,Dead Tree Sandwiches — Katrina @ 10:37 pm

Wednesday night, Dad and I saw Order of the Phoenix at the movie theatre. Not bad.

Thursday was a disturbingly unproductive day at work. I hate it when that happens. And I hadn’t visited any of my message boards or been on IM since Tuesday. There is a very good reason for that. Many acted too early.

Friday was much better. A much better day at work. Very productive. Worked on finishing off an assload of purchase orders that had accumulated on my desk since like April.

And around lunchtime I got a rather interesting phone call. 😉

Friday night, I was nearly shivering with anticipation. And my dad regrettably informed me when reading an article about people waiting for the midnight release, he’d caught a Half-Blood Prince spoiler. I asked just how much he heard, and realizing he didn’t hear quite the whole thing, I merely kept a poker face and said “I’m ain’t sayin’ nothin’.” He took that opportunity to commend me for how I’ve been so good about not spilling anything. Heh.

Later, passed 8pm and knew that meant it was already released in England. I watched the UPS tracking info excitedly. Then went to bed around 12:30.

Woke up around 10:30 this morning, got dressed, and was beside myself. Where is it? Where is it? Where is it? The tracking info had not changed, so I got nervous. I continued to pace around, agitated and hungry, realizing we have like no damn food in this house.

It arrived at 1pm. I ran out and took it from the UPS guy, and got back inside, where Nigel was getting all excited when he knew someone was out there, and he was reacting to how excited I was, and I very hypocritically told him to calm down. Ran back upstairs saying “Grandma! I got it!” and showed her the amusing packaging (“Attention Muggles! Do not deliver or open before July 21!”). I plopped onto my bed and got reading.

Still reading.

Some reactions of mine: “Whoa, holy shit! No, no, no… oh, thank God. OMG WTF?!?!?! Uh oh… WHOA! Ewww! Hahaha. Oh, dear God, no!”

7:30pm was dinner time. Hot dogs! Then after feeding Nigel, back to book.

More reading.

“OMG, whoa! Holy shit! What the fucking shit?!”

Around 10pm: “Ugh, I hope someone competent is taking care of the leader board.”

Still reading. Then paused to, well, write this. Up to page 400-something.

TO BE CONTINUED…

This has been Day 59 of the 100 Days of Summer, Round 7.
