A Harry Situation

You may have guessed by now that I am a pure blooded geek. Hey, I have no shame in admitting it. There is no sense in hiding something that is so obvious. After reading this post you will have written proof that I Melissa am the biggest geek you will ever meet or just read.
Some of you may have noticed a brief absence from blogging on my part. I have been off and on sick for about 2 months now. Sometimes feeling so awful that I couldn't get out of bed. During one of my worst days I called a friend to borrow her Harry Potter books. I had never read one and thought it would be great to read them before the Half Blood Prince came out. The first book is all it took. I am a huge fan and dream of one day owning my own Fire Bolt. Oh yes, I will display it proudly. Okay I know, I am a thirty something mother of 3, I shouldn't be dreaming of being a wizard. But I do and I did say wizard. I agree whole heatedly with Lily, being called a witch is just rude.
A wand is a must have. The funny thing is you can buy a replica of most of the characters wands here or order a all wood wand here.(As pictured below.)

Every Christmas for the next 7 years I am going to request a movie and a book until I have the entire collection.
And that's not all! Oh no, why stop there you can get Harry Potter board games, jewelry, beanies, scarves and much much more!!! :) Check out this 20 Q. How fun. Yeah my friends I have gone off the deep end and have fallen into a pool of Potter.

Now you may be thinking I'm obsessed, but it turns out I'm not. I just took the are you obsessed with Harry Potter quiz and it turns out have appropriate of amount love for all things Potter.
If you haven't visited JK Rowlings official site and you too love Potter. Then I suggest you visit her here as soon as you can. It's fun loving the books, but you just may fall in love with the Author after reading her personal thoughts. You also get a chance to know the characters better and read parts that were left out of the books.
Here are 2 links to fan sites:
Leaky Cauldron Fansite For all of you looking for a craft. Be sure to click on the how to knit your own Weasley sweater button. :)
I will be in my chambers if you need me.

Oh goodness! I am a Harry Potter nerd too! I took Keith to see the 6th movie and now He loves them too. He will not be reading the books, but hey I'll take watching the movies with him anytime. We have been watching one movie everynight! We are now on the 4th, which I love! If you need to borrow movies give me a call!

Hope you're feeling better! We keep circulating the crud around here too!
