A Glimpse of Geek
This past weekend, I spent much of time as many other people around the world spent their time: allowing my inner geek to manifest itself, so I could read the new Harry Potter novel. Yes, I admit it: I’m a Harry fan….the books, the movies…the blow up sex dolls: they all do it for me in that special way that makes your tummy warm, and your nipples hard.
I actually found myself not only anticipating the arrival of said book, but I actually stood at the window from time to time, looking out for delivery trucks bearing names like UPS or Fed-Ex. I bounced on the heels of my feet, and pressed my nose against the glass, hoping that any minute now, the truck would appear on the horizon, and I would have my new book. Even while I was at my neighborhood pool, I kept a constant eye out for any large trucks or post office delivery vehicles that might drive by. Luckily, I had my running shoes safely nearby, should the need for a quick run home arise. It was like Christmas, all morning long.
When I finally received my copy of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince , I was happy to the point of jubilation. I spent the rest of the weekend reading, and occasionally doing other things like eating and sleeping to pass the time, during my reading breaks. I’m not going to go all “book report” on you, but I think this is one of the best HP books yet, except for Goblet of Fire.
Anyway, that was my exciting Harry Potter weekend.
