IT'S HARRY POTTER DAYYYYY (no spoilers inside)

Ohchan says... IT'S HARRY POTTER DAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY \oooooooooooooo/


So it's 2:28AM now, I'm just telling quickly my HP!Crack night and I'll just go reading agaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH *too much excitement sorry!!!!!*

So first off, I was planning to get my copy at 8:30AM (remember I live in France ne) at Carrefour, near my McDonald's, then go to McDo, seat and read until 10:00AM when I would have started working orz (and I'm working on Sunday too >< Won't be able to read that much!!§§141 @#£$%!§!). But my boss called me the day before yesterday to start at 8:30AM because there was nobody to open the kitchen, and that meant extra hours (okane okaneeeeeeeeeeeeeeee), so I didn't refuse, but hell, I would I have to wait until 11:00AM!!! NONONONONONONONONOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! So I searched for a midnight party near my town, only found one in Aix-en-Provence in an English library, so I just phoned Jennifer "CAN YOU BRING ME TO AIX TOMORROW NIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT??????".
So here I waited yesterday, trying to sleep because all night reading + having to work just after that = I'm going to kill my hamburgers.
Couldn't really sleep thought, too excited! And I cut myself from the internet, I was just replying to comments to my previous post and that was all. I even shut down GMail notifier because I was scared somehow, a spoiler might popup XDDDDDD

And the crazy night began!!!!


In the car I asked once agin if Jenni wanted me to tell her the story...
Because she already told me a month ago:
"When you've finished, you tell me everything right?
- WHAT?????
- Yes you tell me everythiiiiiiiiiing!!!
- Well yes, but in French.
- Why not, you can read English?
- I'm just too lazy...
- WTF????
- You're not spoiling me because I'm willing to be spoiled!!!! SERIOUSLY!!!
- ....
- You're absolutely SURE???!
- YES!!
- You're POSITIVELY absolutely SURE about it???!
- YES!!!!!
- At 13246546054% SURE????

So we aggreed on that m(_ _)m (my mum wants me to tell her everything too ORZ Well she never read one and know the story from the movies and me so... XDDDDD)

So yeah, we arrived in Aix at 11:30PM, nobody was in front of the store, so I started to freack out a little, but the sign was there. I took some pics and we went to eat something because I hadn't eaten since the morning @_x

We went back for midnight, and one person was there, a lovely fan with a Harry Potter Shirt (even earings of broomstick and snitch <3<3<3<3<3<3<3) so we just babbled on and on and on. Some minutes later English people came, in the end we were like 6 French for 60 British XDDDDD (Aix-en-Provence is a students city, so there's a bunch of foreigners), it was fuuuun, I love hearing English all around me \ooooo/

At 00:30AM the librairian arrived, said it was going to open at EXACTLY 1:01AM and NOT before so we just waited right in front of the door XDDDD (and the cat's librarian just said hello to us XDDDD That sign just made me ROFL so much XDDDD AND OF COURSE.... We called him Crookshanks XDDDD)

And just to make the fans more insane, he showed us through the window.... THE BOOK!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAH EVERYBODY WENT BERSERK!!!! I screamed to him: "WAIT I'M TAKING A PICTURE WAIT WAIIIIT!!!" XDDDD and just everybody behind me did the same XDDDD

At 00:59AM, the tension was super high, I was just grasping the gate's bars, wishing to be inside already! Then the librarian came out, and asked us to come in by groups of 5, and as our group were the first in front of the shop, everybody let us go in first (which was really nice, they could have just gone berserk and push us away) so I was the second person to buy HP7 YATTAAAAAAAAA!!!!

I started reading while walking back to the car (I missed a step and nearly crashed myself on the floor XDDDD), and started reading again, Jenni was all "YOU TELL ME WHEN SOMETHING DRAMATIC HAPPENS!!!" (she even bought the book, adult edition, she couldn't help it, but she's going to wait for me to tell her, and then, she's going to read it, because she's not sure she's going to understand it all >< ).
I've read until the beginning of chapter 2 so far.

*happy fangirl*

Glasses: checked
Hands clean: checked (to turn the pages more easily XD~)
Room: ready

*off reading all night long*

PS: I'm cutting myself from the internet starting NOW!!!! I'm too scared of spoilers! I've read HP6 in one day and half, and I was quite away from everything, but there, I'm working at the same time, so it's going to take longer, and I'm pretty scared of spoilers (even in RL *WON'T WATCH TV!!!!*). Anyway, when I'll be finished I'll be depressed, I'll just answer comments (tell me your HP7 day, I would love to hear it), and I will surely depress review the book... the whole saga T0T after that.

PS2: YamaTaro 3 just finished DLing.... IT WILL JUST HAVE TO WAIT OK!!!! HP7 FIRST XDDDDDD

ahh the final book is here!!! im glad you got yours already; im gonna wait to get my hands on a copy :x (needs to re-read the sixth book XD)
23rd-Jul-2007 08:12 pm (UTC)
*no spoilers don't worry*

Hope you bought yours, I couldn't read book 6 before, because of work and lazyness. And for book 5 and 6, each time I want to start reading since the beginning to have it all fresh for the book... and each time I failed XDDDDD

So there I didn't even tried, even the previous book (but before going, I just reread the last chapter, just for the transition).

Have a fun time reading and enjoy it!!

No waayy! LOL I just finished posting an entry about my Harry Potter night myself XD. Yours is a lot more interesting though... mine went... totally normal.

Ouuuhh I love that bag with the title on it!! Did it come with the book or did you have to buy it separately? Cuz we sure didn't get any here =( I only saw this... present bag with Harry Potter pictures on it. But yours is soo... simple and really nice!!

And I really like the cover of the adult version (what's the difference? other than the cover...) We don't have adult version here. But this lady was making a fuss about getting a deluxe version (cuz the place only had 3). I know it has a different cover and slightly more expensive. Still have no idea what's different other than that.

Kinda irrelevant but btw, Carrefour!! My hometown in Indonesia has some XD. It is French then. Cuz before the commercial pronounced it... the right way I guess? People were pronouncing it as... the English pronunciation of Care-for hahah. Oookay that was random XP.
23rd-Jul-2007 08:18 pm (UTC)
ROOOOFL Yours was intereseting, there were much more people, so more craziness XDDDD (but we had the crazy cat AHAHAHA XDDD)

Yeap, it came with the book, lovely ne? No it was free. BUT YOU'VE GOT THAT AWESOME POSTER SO DON'T COMPLAIN T__________T *super pout* Anyway, that bag is reallly nice (and now I've just noticed, on the side there is that sign... well I don't want to spoil you, the sign errr.... that we hear about in book 7 (well you know which one))

No there's no difference in the adult edition but the cover, and the backcover has a huge picture of JK Rowling. The US Deluxe edition, I think it ha extra drawings of Mary GrandPré no?

ZLOLOLOL @ Carrefour, I wasn't really expecting a reaction over that XDDDD Anyway, yep it's French, but I think I've heard on some random economic-like French TV Show that yes, it has lot and lot of shop^s around the workd (that TV Show was just talking about China at the time). Care-for XDDD I'm just going to call it like that from now on XD
21st-Jul-2007 07:26 pm (UTC)
Wow, the cover looks so cool! Btw, I friended you a while back~hope you don't mind! I just wrote my story...and like I said, it wasn't as pleasant at first, but it had a very happy ending! I can't read it until my brother's done with it though, lol. Just cuz I read all the other 6 books before he did, so he's reading this one before me.
23rd-Jul-2007 08:20 pm (UTC)
No problem with friending me, I've just friended you back ^^
Well there's nothing better than Geekfest Harry Potter XDDDDDD (well maybe GeekFest Arashi??? XD)

Hope you'll read it soon ^^

Rha, quel bonheur de l'avoir dans ses mains :D
Bonne lecture and beware of the spoilers.
23rd-Jul-2007 08:19 pm (UTC)
I escaped the spoilers YATTAAAAAAAA!!!
Finished it last night YATTAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

J'espère qu'il t'a plu!!! (j'en parlerai plus dans une autre entrée, j'ai l'esprit à l'envers là *pas assez dormi ces trois derniers pour pouvoir finir de le lire XD*)

You are crazy! XDDDDD

Thankfully I cut off from the internet that day, because it's same day as my graduation, and I got my book after my graduation ceremony ended and immediately read it *ignoring my fatique and my panda eyes* XD
24th-Jul-2007 01:06 pm (UTC)
and proud of it XDDDDDD~

What a great gift after your graduation day!!!! Oh and I join you in the "panda eyes mode", because reading HP all night + work at the same time = I only slept 6 hours in 2 days XDDDDDD (but I've catched it up now ^0^ TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!)

You know, winky. Just something I wondered after I read the book. I watched HP5 a week ago, and there, the Room of Requirement was broken by Umbridge right? But ne, in book 6 it will be used by Malfoy and in book 7 it will be used by Neville and friends, so that doesn't make sense. I don't like the movie. Period. (And OMG my favorite character ever is Sirius Black and I can't accept that he just died that way)
25th-Jul-2007 01:16 pm (UTC)
In don't go too far in what they do with the movie, while watching it, I told to myself that people who hadn't read the book won't understand 1/3 of it. I think they'll get away in movie 6 and 7 with just... no explanations? Like "The room repaired itself on its own" or something like that <<
Well didn't like the movie too, not because of the things they changed (even if the way Sirus dies, I was NOT happy at all with... Avada Kedavra in your face and disappears into the what-should-have-been-a-veil-but-is-just-a-big-smoky-thingy ... ), but because I felt nothing, no emotions at all, nothing came out of the screen. Lightnings and mood were great, some actings too (Bellatrix, Umbridge and Luna <3), but that's all. The rythm was aweful (especially at the beginning), and I couldn't feel happyness, angriness (the last scene with Harry and Dumbledore? Totally lame, where is Harry throwing a tanthrum and Dumbledore showing a part of his wickness (which now we know, will be REALLY important for movie 7)), well nothing at all. Only the battle with the Death-Eaters in the Department of Mysteries will stay memorable.
I knew this wasn't the easiest book to adapt really, but I'm kinda scared what the director is going to do with movie 6 because what he did with movie 5 was... And the Half-Blood Prince is by far my favorite book T0T

AND YOUR ICHIBAN IS SIRIUS???? How is it that our ichibans are always the same XDDDD (really closely followed by Hermione <3 )

ROOOFL sorry for the long comment, I was just caught into my review of HP5 XD
26th-Jul-2007 02:23 am (UTC)
I think you explained so well about everything that I think about the movie. I can't even protest more. The biggest flaw is that there's no emotion, you're right. While actually one of the good things of the book is the flow of emotions starting from the silly teenagers problem to the lonely feeling and blaming attitude at the end. But we don't have that in the movie, do we? But Luna in the movie is so good, I agree. Bellatrix as well.

And I didn't have a chance to look closely at young Lupin and Sirius in Snape's memory. I only got a glimpse of James. D:

Yes, ichiban is Sirius. How come it's the same ne? Seems our taste is the best after all XDDD

Shhhhhh! I love long comments!!! <3333
26th-Jul-2007 06:55 am (UTC)
yes yes, totally forgot about the "WTF with that ridiculously short Snape's-worst-memory scene"! I. WAS. SO. MAD!§§!11§!! This was the scene I was looking forward the most T0T Didn't even catch a glimpse of Lily there ;____;

'ear 'ear, we have such wonderful tastes XDDDDD

Shhhhh me too X3 <3<3<3<3
25th-Jul-2007 01:04 pm (UTC)
LOL I don't get the whole Harry Potter fandom XD
I have never finished even one book =P
25th-Jul-2007 01:19 pm (UTC)
Well the HP fandom is not as lovely as Arashi ones, but I was into it for 6 years, and it was 6 crazy years of crazy waiting and crazy theories and crazy HP midnight release XDDDD

But please don't compare the books to the movies m(_ _)m
