Just wanted to give a big "hooray!" for the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince! It's release is the reason I am up at 3am US central time typing this post. My "day job" is managing a Boders Books in Nashville, TN, and we hosted a Midnight Magic Party for the release. It was exhausting, but much fun. My store is in a pretty "nouveau riche" part of town, and the customers can typically be a bit needy, but tonight they were a blessing. Everyone was as patient as we could expect them to be while waiting for the books to come out, and then waiting in line with 700 other people to buy their copy. So, a thanks to those customers--cheers! I was pleased with the whole experience, and I now have my copy.
Anyway, thought that I would expound--I tend to do so when I am deprived of sleep, and...I have to be back at work in less than 6 hours! Oh well, no one ever said retail wasn't a challenge!
Thanks for coming along with me on this canoe ride on my stream of consciousness.
