I don't know if this is good or bad, it just is.
Tomorrow at work is going to be EFFING INSANE. We're doing this all day/all night Harry Potter thing and we're going to be open from 9am until 1am Saturday morning. The NEWS was here today; hopefully they didn't broadcast anything. In the last two weeks, we "sorted" 1200 people. So, potentially, that's 1200 people who know about this, plus allll the publicity, the local press, etc.
So, yeah. Potentially not pretty. Everything looks awesome, though. Maybe I'll take pictures tomorrow before we open.
It's strangely annoying to have Harry Potter invade my "real" life - everybody wants to talk about it, and most people are...not in fandom, shall we say? They've never discussed the finer points of Snape's attractiveness vis Alan Rickman's portrayal or the Dumbledore-as-Ron theory. Many of them consider The Leaky Cauldron (or Merlin forbid Mugglenet) the be-all, end-all of fandom information.
I'm being snotty, aren't I? I have no sentimentality about The End Of Fandom, either. We stay, we go - fandom became more about relationships than Harry for me a while ago. :)
Ahahaha, Harry Potter and the Endless Buildup. Yes, even the Daily Show is in on this. Sigh.
I'm not gonna be offline, haven't been spoiled yet, not worried. Going to Kroger at midnight like I did for HBP, grab some string cheese, pop and a copy of the book.
*hugs you all, just 'cause*
