Harry Potter and no, I didn't have the baby yet

Strangest post title ever, huh? First things first. No baby yet. Every day, everyone I see is completely shocked that I'm still at work, or doing my thing, and still pregnant, and not in the hospital birthing. But, you know, I'm not due 'til Tuesday (remember 'Til Tuesday? The band? I think they sang the song "Voices Carry"? That is going to be in my head all night). Anyway, no baby yet. But man am I exhausted. And man, do I think it might have been a bad idea to work until the end. But man, am I also glad I'm not home just waiting for the contractions to hit. So ultimately, although it's completely wiping me out, I'm glad I'm still working, because otherwise I think I'd just be freaking myself out about childbirth even more than I already am.

Anyway, hey! The new Harry Potter book comes out Friday at midnight! What is it called again? "Harry Potter and the Wizards of the the Deathly Hollows" or something like that? You can probably tell I'm not a big Harry Potter fan. Well, let me put it this way - I'm not a fan of reading the books. I'm not into fantasy and wizards and s*** like that. But I am a HUGE fan of how excited people get over the release of the books. Seriously, I think it's awesome. I think it's great that stores have big parties to celebrate the release, that kids make it their weekend goal to finish the 700+ page books, that, in general, for one day every couple of years, it's super cool to be a nerdy reader.

So have fun, Harry Potter fans! My prediction for this book - since, seriously, I just about guessed the ending right last time, so obviously I have some sort of gift - someone major dies. But it's not Harry. No way.

Let me know how it turns out.

You're so funny. Now pop that baby out, already! I want to meet her. And make you a chocolate cake.
