HP Week - Truths about Harry Potter

Okay so I’m not going to reveal anything special about Harry Potter, after all Thursdays are for me. I’m the one that shares the truths. That’s how I roll. So here are the truths of my addictions.

1. If I could be a fourth wheel with Ron, Harry, and Hermoine I would do so. In an instant. Leave my husband behind?? Hell, he’d expect it.

2. When stuck in traffic my husband and I express the need for apparation skills. That’s right… we would like to apparate and forgo sitting in our cars waiting for the two grain trucks who hit one another to move their asses.

3. Wanna be invisible? I do… for my secret detective skills I want the invisibility cloak dammit. Do you know how helpful that would be? Send on over JK Rowling I want to have the one and only.

4. I want wizarding powers. How is it that Molly Weasley can magically wash dishes and clean the house but can’t afford a nice one? Isn’t magic meant to be misused! Bring me on the pool and outdoor patio space baby… I’m looking to live large.

5. Forget regular candy I want some bertie’s bots and chocolate frogs. I want the love potion and maps of schools for easier skipping. Where was this when I was in school?
What do you want from the wizarding world? Good news is that though I can’t apparate I’ll still get to experience the world of Harry Potter as I take a PLANE (Yes… muggle transporation) to go to the Wizarding World come November. You know you’re jealous.

They’re important too:

Nothing worse than being stuck in traffic!

i like how you want an invisibility cloak for detective skills and i want one because i think it will really help me rob a bank...

The good news is that you'll get Bertie Botts beans, chocolate frogs, cauldron cakes, and butterbeer in HP World! (And they're OH so yummy! Well, not the beans, but the rest. lol)

I constantly wish I was a witch - apparition being a top reason. I've loved all your HP posts this week!

Tucker said...

I love this HP post. I've just dived into the series and i'm loving it. i know... late to arrive.

Laurel Garver said...

I also always wondered why the Weasleys never used their magical powers to make the Burrow less shabby. But I think it's just not a priority for them. Enjoying time together is more important than nice stuff.

Apparation, floo network or portkeys--I'd take any or all of those options. Sitting in traffic is the worst! Are we there yet?? ;-)

LTM said...

LOL! Very cool. I just want JKR's magnificent power of coming up with fantastic names for things! I struggle with that one...

Oh, and the part about apparating. I'll totally take that~ :D <3

Colene Murphy said...

Perfect! I will share all those wishes! Being a witch would be the coolest thing EVERY!!

Renae said...

I would love some of those witch skills when house cleaning day rolls around!

Amie McCracken said...

I'm jealous that you get to go to Wizarding World. I want to go. :(

I would want a time turner so I could take more wizarding classes like Hermione did. (Wow, I'm a geek.)

Shannon said...

I AM jealous! We won't be there until November 2012!

Can't wait to see the movie on Saturday. I'm completely geeked out over it.

Michael Di Gesu said...

You are TOO funny, Jen.

I LOVED your post. You'll get to have all those DELICIOUS WW delights. Wait until you see HONEYDUKES .... OMG you'll go INSANE. I can't wait to see your face.

That;s going to be my thrill experiencing WW through your eyes. Feeling your excitement and watching the sheer delight on your face. November can't come fast enough for me..... I know you feel the same way.

Johanna Garth said...

Every time I'm in an airplane stuck on the tarmack I desperately wish for the ability to apparate.

As for Chocolate Frogs...I think you can get a version of those online. Except they won't hop away.

Abby Minard said...

Omg, I always wondered that too! How can they not just create an awesome mansion? Why not all the wizards? Oh man, I still have 2ish years to go to the Wizarding World. We're waiting until Little Monster is around 8 to go.

Melanie Stanford said...

I'm so jealous you get to see the wizarding world. Sigh. Maybe one day. I want wizard powers too. And to go to Hogwarts. And to be Harry, Ron and Hermione's BFF. And go to Weasley's Whizard Wheezes. And cast a Patronus. And play Quidditch. And, and, and...

Liz P said...

I would love some wizarding powers to clean my house. Think how much time it would save!

Jennifer Hillier said...

Totally jealous that you get to go to Wizarding World. I just might have to "accidentally bump into you" there (read: stalk you!)

Can we buy an invisibility cloak on Amazon? If so, I'm ordering two! ;)

Laura Pauling said...

I would love an invisibility cloak! :) And a friend like Hagrid.

Susanne Drazic said...

I'd like to be able to get my housework and dishes done like Mrs. Weasley. Just think of all the time freed up for writing!

Donea Lee said...

How did I totally miss HP week??? I've been so distracted lately (not an excuse), but I miss visiting all my blogger friends!!

Love your obsessions - I would love to apparate, too! :)

Kristin Rae said...

I'm so with you on #4!
