In just a manner of days, the whole world will be anxiously ripping through the fabric of their theater seat with their chilled fingers, body complete with full wizard attire, and homemade wooden wand in hand, waiting for the moment when that classic song will hit their ears.

"Da daaa da da daaa da daaaaa da. Daa da da daa da daaaaa"

Are you ready?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows {Part 1}

Who can wait? I, for one, know that I am freaking out of my muggle mind! From the moment I opened that cover only days before the opening night of the first movie Sorcerer's Stone, I knew I was hooked for life. A series of a century. I would go to my mailbox and search the sky for my owl countless times at the age of eleven. Children and adults a like would gather together all over the world at the release "party" of a new book...getting midnight showing tickets months in advance...celebrate July 31st...cry through half of the last book...it's kind of like the world was connected for a few moments in time-over one little boy with the initials HJP.

I've heard a lot of uproar about the fact that they split the 7th movie into two parts. "They're just trying to prolong the end of it all. Make more money...etc". But the part that grabs me in their angry complaint? "They're just trying to prolong the end...". RIGHT.

Do you remember when you turned that last page in Deathly Hallows and couldn't read the last paragraph because you knew it was all over? Maybe you love Star Wars...remember when that last movie was done and over with? Hunger Games? Whatever your obsession :) It's like a part of your heart was ripped out of your chest..or dying. Maybe...you didn't want it to end.

That is why I am one that is proudly happy about the movie being split in two parts. Yeah, maybe their trying to get more money. BUT YOU'RE WILLING TO PAY FOR IT. Think about it. If you are a true fan, you would go to every show, even if the last one was split in 7 parts...:) {Any one catch the 7? ;)}. And half the world is intrigued that there are two. "Something's up, they gotta be good then...curiousity...". It's all there. Me? My reasons for happiness of two parts is that 1. I don't believe in a million years they could get everything in that last book in one little movie. They couldn't even do that for the shorter ones. 2. Ya, creating suspense for the world is working. It's definitely working on me. 3. I can't let go.....

I'd rather not talk about the month that the last movie comes out. I won't be present in normal day light. I'll come out for the movie, tear stained ticket in hand, then sink back into the shadows. Come visit me...I'll be sending my new address in "Deep Dark Cave of Death" city at the end of this post.

I'm kind of having a reminiscing harry potter week. Remembering all of the pages of the books, looking back at getting excited with my neighbors to go see the new movie, making costumes to wear, holding my ticket, playing the songs on the piano, totally guilty of wanting to marry Daniel Radcliffe....

So I looked at some pics. I thought it would be fun to show a progression of our leading man. ;)

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone:
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets:

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban:
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire:
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix:
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince:
And Finally....
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows {part 1}

Not bad, eh? :) I daresay he's looking pretty *dapper* in this last one. Though I must admit I already gave in at Sorcerer's Stone. ;) Here's a few of my favorite pics from the new movie.

That last one sends a shiver up my spine for some reason. ;)

So my love and obsession continues. Don't worry, it's healthy. I make sure of that.
The greatest sadness of all? Ally Best won't be attending the midnight showing. Lack of tickets in Cedar and plus, it's way better sitting next to William and the rest of the family on Thanksgiving weekend to see the movie I've been waiting for. ;) It's worth waiting just a bit longer.

Good luck to calming down my nerves enough to sleep this weekend.
It's almost here!

Love Always,
Little Besty
