Not going to lie, this weekend will mostly be spent on the couch in front of the TV switching back and forth between the Harry Potter marathon and the World Cup finals. Obviously this will give me an excuse to make Quidditch references during the World Cup. If you have been living under a rock, ABC Family is FINALLY showing all eight Harry Potter movies this weekend! Coupled with the opening of Diagon Alley at Universal, Samantha booking her flight for Labor Day making our trip to the wizarding world official, you can imagine that I'm in full-on Harry Potter mode. Too bad it's a tad too warm to wear my Gryffindor scarf.
Now I'm reminiscing that one time that Harding had a Quidditch tournament and student publications was The Daily Prophet (see what we did there?). I rode my Swifter instead of a traditional broom and called it the Swift 3000. And this was the beginning and end of my athletic career.
So what if I've added the ingredients for frozen butterbeer to my grocery list tomorrow? It's necessary.
And I may quite possibly be saving up to splurge on a wand at Universal so that I can cast spells throughout the park and unlock more secrets.
And can we talk about that 7.5 hour wait on Tuesday...I would like to consider myself a Harry Potter fan, but that is a little extreme even for me. In the time it took, they could have watched the first three movies before stepping onto the ride. It was definitely not for the faint of heart. Especially in the Florida humidity. That sounds like the worst.
