It's Heeeere!!

Can you believe it?? After all these days, it's finally here! Happy 'Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince Premieres at Midnight' Day!!!

Astonishingly enough, I'm somehow managing to wait and see the movie with my parents when I'm in Seattle later this week (!!!!). But in lieu of joining my friends in the traditional Hogwarts-shirt-wearing, wand-and-owl-carrying fun in Times Square tonight, I thought that an appearance by the Potter Puppet Pals was the perfect way to celebrate this momentous day... Enjoy! :)

A Glorious Reunion

Dearest Seattle,

I know it's been almost 3 whole years since I've been back, and you must know how sorry I am for this neglect. You know I love you and think the world of you! I still don't even consider naming a place other than you when I'm asked where I'm from... You and I - we have more happy memories than I can even begin to name.

And guess what? In exactly one week, I'll be on a plane headed your way for a reunion unlike any other! 10 whole days of us together, me back in the beautiful Northwest. Can you hardly stand it?? I'm so giddy, I don't even mind if it rains a time or two...

So get excited, my friend. Please prepare The Pink Door, Snoqualmie Falls, Triple X Root Beer, Pike Place Market, the Space Needle, and eeeverywhere in between... Because you and I both know that it's been far far too long. See you soon!


"It doesn't matter where you are, doesn't matter where you go
If it's a million miles away or just a mile up the road
Take it in, take it with you when you go
Who says you can't go home?"
