Harry Potter Spoilers

July 18th, 2007 (11:28 am)

Personally, I'm not going anywhere within a thousand miles of anything that might even be considered a spoiler, and refusing to click on any links. It sounds like there's a million different other 'spoilers' or wacked out pet theories as I call 'em floating around the net, so I think that's the best strategy.

However, Friday night after I've bought my copy is completely different. The last two books, I've been able to buy them at midnight in the UK, rush home and finish reading them by around 4am here. Which, given the time zones, puts me at about 11pm West coast time.

Yes, I will be around to spoil you if asked.

Not to mention, I might well run a lj cut spoiler post/running blog as well. *grin* Sound reasonable to everyone?

Sounds good. That's the one thing I miss about Oxford -- I got book four delivered to my doorstep on Saturday morning, and this one I'll only be able to pick up once the Sabbath is out. Damn theocracy.

HP Pigs fly

*Ahem* Must learn to look closely at which reply I'm giving to which person. Ooops.

I assume you'll be doing a total internet watch that night then? "C'mon... c'mon... Spoil meh dammit!!" type thing?

Does that mean you don't read my journal? *Weeps*

(Sorry, just clearing up some of the last week's backlog.)

Shortly before you send me some, I presume.

Nope, no spoilers please unless behind a cut.

Besides, the bookstore I pre-ordered from cut a special deal with the post office to deliver all copies this Saturday. And, for us, this is a big thing. I'm so old, I remember when we used to get regular mail deliveries on Saturday - and twice a day in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Ay, nostalgia.

I'll be slogging away at it all day Saturday.
What? Get a life! I do have a life. I just demand slumming time, too.

Giggly hugs,
H.

HP Awesome! Weasleys

No, no... don't worry! LJ cuts, as mentioned, will certainly be used - I don't mind spoiling people who WANT to know, but there's no way I'd do that to anyone trying to stay safe.

And speaking as a postal worker, what's a Saturday delivery?!!? :P I kiiiiddd, I kiiiidd....

Y'all don't deliver on Saturdays over there?

Big, big apologies. You probably have got it/read it by now but alas my cable provider got flooded yesterday, so it's been over 24 hours without internet.

I will happily spoil if needed, but I kinda doubt it now. :(
