In my quest to talk about some other aspects of my life other than books, I thought I would talk about my plans for tomorrow-and it is book-related. :) I have to start somewhere, you know?
I love Harry Potter. I didn't dive into the books when they first came out. I only started reading them when I ran out of books to read on a family vacation. I'm kind of glad I did!
Anyway, I really wanted to watch the other movies before the final one came out in July. I ran out of time, and my family went on vacation, so I completely failed on that. ;) It happens, right?
One of my good friends, Kyla, came up with the idea to have a huge marathon and watch all 8 movies as soon as the last one was out on DVD. Tomorrow is the big day! We're starting at noon (after a shopping trip to pick up some food items), and we're going to plow through all 8 movies with break only for eating and bathroom breaks. We're also making butterbeers and some other themed food, so it should be a great time.
I am sure we will be glassy eyed and crazy by the time the last movie is over-and I'll probably sob from exhaustion and emotion-but it'll be a great day. I'm sure I'll be tweeting and such during the marathon as well (it has been a long time since watching a few of the movies!).
Tell me, have you ever done a big movie marathon like this? We once had a Lord of the Rings marathon to watch all the extended editions. It took us over 12 hours!
I'll be back *live* on Sunday with my weekly update, and I'll let you know how it went!
