No one seems sufficiently excited about this. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"> Do people not realize that on this day in 1998, Harry Potter and his friends defeated Voldemort and saved the Wizarding world, and in all likelihood, the Muggle world as well? If I wasn't feeling completely sick I would bake a cake or something.

Well, I did bake a cake. 2 cakes actually as the first was a complete and utter failure. (Note: The castle bundt pan looks lovely in theory and never ever releases the cake.) Maybe it was Voldemort who jinxed my cake!

DS and I had completely planned on going- Heck, I was even willing to go into DEBT to get to go, but alas, we are having a newborn, and I am not using up my floo powder to get all the way to Orlando just to have them tell me that I can't go on the rides with a newborn. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Stupid muggles and their stupid safety concerns.

Well how exciting!!! I am just re-reading Order of the Phoenix for the 8 millionth time, but I somehow let it slip by <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
We did however have dd's 5th Fairy Princess Birthday Party yesterday, so we were celebrating in our own way <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Hee, hee! Actually, I'm re-reading the book <span style="text-decoration:underline;">Deathly Hallows</span> right now and am almost to the part where Harry liberates the wizards.

Yes, but only if you drink one for me.<br><br>
We are referring to the babies as Hedwig and Pigwidgeon, because from far away my ultrasound pic looks like a snowy owl.

I posted it on my Facebook and didn't get a lot of response. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I'm listening to HP & DH on audio book right now on my commute. I'm right at the part where they've taken Polyjuice and infiltrated the Ministry.<br><br>
RM had a cake pan shaped like a castle - too bad I gave it to MIL. That would have been awesome!

Here's what I posted on Facebook:<br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1n_2uL2YjN" target="_blank">You're Not Alone</a> (Harry and Ginny from Harry Potter the Musical, you can go in about 35 seconds to catch the song)<br><br>
And if you've never checked out Harry Potter the Musical, you absolutely must. It's freaking brilliant.<br><br>
I'm also celebrating by reading the stories on the <a href="http://community.livejournal.com/rhr_smutfest/" target="_blank">Ron/Hermione smutfest</a> that starting posting this week, even though my libido took a nose dive when I found out I was pregnant and then went into permenant hiding when I found out it was twins, and I had to farm out my story for someone else to finish.<br><br>
ETA: <a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/StarKidPotter#p/c/C76BE906C9D83A3A" target="_blank">Here's the link</a> to watch the whole Very Potter Musical.
