Yes, yes, I am that nerd. I read all the books (only once though) and watched all the movies. And I can't deny that I loved every second of it. Who doesn't want to root Harry on?!
Eric and I originally talked about going next weekend, but I secretly wanted to convince him to go tonight. But before I could, my friend Kate asked if I wanted to go to the midnight showing. Despite having a busy day and needing to get up early, I couldn't resist.
We arrived at the theatre an hour and a half before showtime, and killed time on our phones and eating popcorn and sour patch kids/junior mints. Although I have read the books, I was still on the edge of my seat in anticipation. I thought about re-reading them recently but opted not to in order to make the movie better (reading a book and then watching the movie shortly after is a recipe for disappointment). I'm sure glad I didn't, because the movie as AWE-some.
I'm so glad Kate asked me to go. Neither of our husbands get into Harrry Potter, so it was fun to go with someone who was as excited as I was. Like, I was really excited. Excited enough to take this...
What a dork.
