It's been a real challenge to avoid spoilers for Harry Potter 7. I've had to stay away from certain websites, skip sections of the newspaper, quickly flip TV channels or switch off radios. I've shrieked "DON'T TELL ME ANYTHING!" to real-life people several times already. It's getting harder day by day. I absolutely refuse to speed-read through the thing: I'm only on page 233 at the moment. I want to savour this last adventure. Hey people, there's a big famine a-comin' after you've binged on this final book. Now that you've raced all your friends to finish first, don't you wish you'd made it last a little longer?
Also: I have learned to knot cherry stems with my tongue. This new skill will take me far in life.
