Hum, wonder if Rob will dress up like one of the Harry Potter characters (I’ve seen so many on the AP wire tonight) and stay out in front of the neighborhood bookstore to get his last copy. Granted, I already downloaded the pdf … I mean … a friend of mine downloaded it, yeah, that’s it.
So, where will Rob be? And if he is going to get the book at 12:01, what character will be dressed as? Taking all bets..July 21, 2007 at 12:54 am #5610
Well, I personally think that Rob will be jerking it in the book store bathroom at 12:01, just cause new Harry Potter books make him excited.
If he was a character though, I think he’d dress up as Hagrid, just so he could be loud and obnoxious.July 21, 2007 at 2:36 am #5613YouFollowMe? wrote:I think he’d dress up as Hagrid, just so he could be loud and obnoxious.
Ouch, that’s kinda harsh. Poor guy’s not even here to defend himself.July 21, 2007 at 2:42 am #5597
Oh, I saw it — I’m not tall enough for Hagrid. Probably someone in the background somewhere is who I’d pick.July 21, 2007 at 4:44 am #5591BuchoParticipant
Oh yeah, the young witch maid from Prisoner Of Azkaban, I hear you brother. I’m going as Aunt Magda.

I was really surprised — I went to the Wal-Mart close to me — even though I fuckin’ hate Wal-Mart, I decided that it probably wouldn’t be that busy, since it’s kind of a po-dunk kinda hick town. Boy was I wrong — they had a huge stack of them, and it looked like (at about 12:05) that they had gone through half of them. Sure there’s more, but it was still amazing. Just gobs of people. There was a dork in front of me with two books and a copy of the Jim Dale audiobooks — I thought about asking him if he planned on reading the book twice or something, but the guy looked so homely and, well, fuckin’ dorky, that I didn’t speak a word.
By 12:22, I was on the road, back to the house. It’s now 3:00 am and I’m dog-fuckin’ tired. I’ve read 136 pages in about two hours, and what a beginning!
The movie for this one is gonna be amazing. It’s really going to be something.July 21, 2007 at 11:35 am #5609Frank wrote:YouFollowMe? wrote:I think he’d dress up as Hagrid, just so he could be loud and obnoxious.

I meant loud and obnoxious in the most loving sort of way. After all, without Rob, SOS would be roughly 40% quieter and boring.July 21, 2007 at 2:43 pm #5595
Yeah — people kept trying to read the first few pages, and I kept yelling, “LUKE! LUUUKE!”July 22, 2007 at 4:17 am #5594
Well, I’m done. And it was everything it should have been.July 22, 2007 at 10:03 am #5590BuchoParticipant
You mean it had words in it and it was kind of papery and cardboardy? And a little sticky?

I’m on page 570, and it’s pretty damn good. I gotta work at 1 though, so I have to wait to finish it.July 23, 2007 at 1:13 am #5607
I finished it, and it was really amazing. The movie for this should be incredible, as long as they don’t screw it up. Crap, I don’t know what I’m going to read now. I mean, there’s plenty of other books, but nothing will really ever be the same. I first read Harry Potter when I was 7, now I’m 16. That’s a good chunk o’ life right there.July 23, 2007 at 2:06 am #5593
I read a lot of that kind of thing last night when I finished — I also hope that Harry Potter won’t be the last time I’m hooked on something so rewarding.July 23, 2007 at 2:26 am #5612
It kills me that that Rowling is a billionaire now after writing only six books, much less what she’s going to get on this last book (FYI, it’s sold more than 8 million copies so far in the U.S. alone). I start to sit back and think, as someone who loves writing, “Why can’t I fucking do this?!?!”July 24, 2007 at 9:51 pm #5606OctaviousParticipant
First, Rob you didn’t tell the kid to get Steve Fry?
Second, your done? Wow! I am on page 21. But by the end of the weekend I should be done with it.
