If things can go wrong they will. And they did. My perfectly laid out plans for a perfect potter weekend have been disrupted to such an extent that I want to scream at the top of my voice 'THIS CANNOT BE HAPPENING TO ME'. But of course as always they are happening to me. Saturday is working for a few of us! The last time I worked on a Saturday when we had to compensate for the Rajkumar riots. No riots this time but I am working. Which means I will have to spend nearly 6 agonizing hours in office while the whole world is rejoicing Voldy's fall and mourning the losses. And of course no tickets for Sunday(Well going by the reviews I don't really mind)

Anyway here's the new plan
  • Reach store at 5 am.
  • Get back home read as much as possible.
  • Switch off cell.
  • Go to work.
  • Keep away from mails, fan sites and the world wide web.
  • Get back home.
  • Avoid sister (She would have read by then)
  • Read all night.

Truman said...

HP said...

Best Of Luck..Somehow, I keep repeating these 3 words to you...

Never seemed to understand the fuss about reading the book before everyone else :-)

You seem to be going quite paranoid about this. You need a protein shot. :)

Balaji, day went on ok, how did you like the book?

Truman, I booked at blossoms da.

HP, Its not about reading before everybody else, it is about reading before all the secrets are leaked!

Guns, hehe..I am fine now that I have finished reading.

Balaji said...

it was ok. i thought she struggled for half the book. but then she got back into her grove.

FlyingHigh said...

balaji, hmm yeah..not too many surprises though.One absolutely unnecessary death. And the last chapter was very filmy, almost as if she consulted Karan Johar for it!

Sorry that your 'perfectly laid out plans' didn't work out the way you wished. Neither did mine, as far as travelling with friends was concerned, as you would find in my last posting of August 20th.
But then the cliche goes..

If wishes were horses
Beggars would ride
If wishes were fishes
We'd all have some fried

So..for now, we are all smiling todate, right? Let's rejoice at that. Cheers :)
