i guess it's because i'm not a fan, but this harry potter craze baffles me to no end. i tried, i really did, to get into it. i love reading, and especially fluffy, nonsensical, non-educational stuff. but i just can't do it. hell, even my mom has read every book from cover. i've racked my brain and can't think of a single thing i'd be lining up for hours to buy/see/hear.
there are folks who have been camping out in front of bookstores since MONDAY. the damn book doesn't even come out until 12:01am on saturday! and the insanity of the movie coming out last week - with folks passing out with excitement and lining up for hours on end - wow.
it's just a book, folks. it's going to be available from now till the end of time. does it REALLY matter if you scoop up a copy of it the second it comes out, or if [gasp] you don't get it until the next morning? just like the crazy folks lined up for hours at the opening of the newest h&m store. um, what?
i think watching the endless news reels on this crap is just bugging the shit outta me. there are lots of other news stories much more important. aren't there any new celebrity break-ups to report on? sheesh.
