Arr'ray Pottah - 7QT, Volume 37

Click here to read the original post at
I have to be awake in 4 hours for work... because I just got home from watching my childhood end.

I saw the final chapter of Harry Potter close onscreen tonight (this morning?). I am grateful, as my sisters said, that the books will always be there, preserved, for me to read.

This is the first midnight showing I attended and as it was the final opportunity, I had to dress up! I have more photos than this and I will post them after I sleep, but here I am in my car mirror.

... oh no wait, that's Rita Skeeter after she went brunette (you didn't know she went brunette? You must have missed that part of the book...)

UPDATE: I was not happy with most of the pictures we took before going to King's Cross, I mean, the movie theater, so I only have this photo of my sisters (Hermione and Tonks). Tonks is doing her pig nose, obviously:

The rest of this 7QT will be quotes from my sisters chronically quotable nannyees (those kids whom she nannies). All names have been changed:

My sister and the kids were talking about getting shots at the doctor.

Hermione (what? I'm sticking with a theme, here): "One time I had a shot and it felt really good."

"It couldn't feel as good as a hot dog would feel. Or a piece of pizza."

Friend from pool, Harry: "Have you ever been to the solar system?"

My sister: "No I've never been."

Harry: "Well, I'm going to go one day, I just have to pick a day."

Harry walks away.

Ron: "I'm going tell him that he needs to wait until he's a grown up because he might forget his oxygen suit."

Hermione: "What if your nose is underneath of your mouth?"


About an 80-year-old woman at the pool with notoriously healthy-sized teeth:

Ron: "That lady never frowns!"

Hermione to my sister: "I'm splashing water up your boogery nose!"

Only seven more hours before I'm in the cinema, watching it all end!!! Woohoo!
Those children you're sister nannies are hilarious, I especially loved the one about the oxygen suits. :-)

Oh ho ho! I am seeing it tomorrow. These pictures and quotes are hilarious!

Alicia Philbin said...

I feel the same way. Childhood has officially ended!! I am seeing the movie tonight so I'm sure I'll be crying then or something. You're right though, at least we always have the books!

I was too tired from the midnight show to do a quick takes... but I love that you all dressed up! My sisters and I wore the "I've been Pottered" shirts I made a few years back!

I have yet to see the movie, but am totally planning on it. I love that you dressed up! I wrote about us being at Horrible Bosses and all the uber Potter fans in line five hours before the movie. AMAZING!
