HP & The Half-Blood Prince

Yup, I just finished it at 11:30 pm. Been trying to read it all night, and DH kept interrupting me. He's doing some on-line shopping for the Kiddies' birthday. Geeesh. I know my priorities!!

LOL. Kiddie A has written a review - but it has Spoilers, so beware.

Yes, she left one copy with us to read. Now DH will need to try and finish it this week, 'cause Kiddie A will want to talk about it and she's hard to stop. Kiddie B finished it on the drive up to Penn State, and she still has the copy with her, so Kiddie A could start again if she wanted to. Kiddie A's roommate for this week has the book, too, and DH warned Kiddie A not to spoil it for her.

I liked it, and like Kiddie A, can hardly wait to read the next, final book. She'll be itching to talk about it when we pick them up on Saturday, and I'm interested in hearing her views on what might be coming up.

Now I've got to get to bed, the service people will be here early in the morning to start the work on our heating/AC system. It's being completely replaced.

Replacing a heat pump sounds expensive. I think I'll start a pez fund.

It sounds like you and I spent a great deal of our time this weekend doing the same exact thing!

We had to replace our AC system a couple of years back, I pity you!

I finished up this morning and found it to be the best so far. Too bad we have to wait so long for the next installation. Kiddie A did a good job with the review.

Good luck with the heating/AC installation - what a pain!

I think I like the Bible better. They don't make you wait so long to find out who's killing whom.

I am impressed you managed to finish the book, and your own child has written a review on it!

Hhhey Dddragon :)!

Miss me? Just making the rounds telling everyone I'm still alive.

I was just wondering. Are you using the blogger image tool for your photos? Do you like that? I host my pics at a different location and I'm gonna run out of space soon. What do you think of it?

Oh, I'll catch up with blogs as soon as I'm in Cali and all settled. See ya!

jevanking: I do now use the blogger image tool. I have stored my pics at a couple of different places. Now, I'll use personal images at those places, and the "generic" images (such as the Harry Potter bookcover) will be used with the blogger tool.

Day one of the AC/Heat pump, etc work is done. Turns out that the old duct work won't work and new will have to be installed. More $$. Ugh. Looking forward to better temperature control - both summer and winter.

Good grief. Being comfortable ain't easy or cheap, huh?

And yet another follow-up to the work being done: Turns out that the guys didn't realize how our complicated (read: insane way my BIL did it) water pipes work. So when I turned on the water in the shower, a flood appeared in the basement. Luckily, my DH was down there looking at what had been done, and yelled up at me to turn off the water. Had to call the service company so that they could come out and fix it. For awhile we thought that after a hot night (and I don't mean a fun, hot night) we wouldn't be able to take a shower.

Congrats on finishing it! I'm still in the middle of it.
Thanks for not spoiling it.
I'll read some more after I post some more comments.
I'm loving it so far!

sounds like you had a quiet trip to State College:)
Good luck getting the AC/heater fixed--homeowning is a rare treat, at times.

Nothing is better than new AC day. Nothing.

Yeah, good luck with the AC. I have insomnia now... oh, I guess it's the girls' b-day! :-)

I loved it. I got it Saturday night and finished it Monday night. It was the best in the series, by far. Her writing style has improved vastly and her concepts are more sophisticated/believable now.

Harry Potter? Who's he?

At 3:32 PM, Blogger Courtney said...

Yah. I finnished the book also. It's great.
