Lisa’s Tuesday Perspective: This Week – Comic Con!

Some of you may know that tomorrow starts the annual San Diego Comic Con, the biggest pop culture convention in the world, basically.  I’ve been going to the Con for years now, either working it or just going for fun with my family.  I’ve seen some fun stuff, too.   The Supernatural boys (actually, just Jensen), David Tennant from Doctor Who (be still my heart!), movie panels, sneak peaks at movies and TV shows… the works.  I’ll only be going a couple of days this week, but I’m looking forward to it.  It’s a lot of madness and a LOT of people, but it’s always fun.

The biggest thing I’m looking forward to this year?  Well, there’s no Twilight panel (I’m kind of relieved) but there just so happens to be a Deathly Hallows one.  Or, okay, a WB one, that will include the Deathly Hallows.  I’m not holding my breath towards seeing Dan Rad or Rupert Grint, but maybe if life loves me I’ll see a Phelps boy or two.  There is a slim possibility that Ryan Reynolds will be making an appearance in said panel also, to promote The Green Lantern.  I’m going to spend all Saturday morning standing in line to see this panel, but I’ll be doing it with a nice boy who loves me, so it should be fun.

My point in all of this?  Is that I plan on taking a lot of pictures and reporting back here next week.  I’m also hoping to get some yummy ARC books from the publishing house tables.  Mmmm, free books.  See you all next week!


Fun Friday: Now Open! The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

We’re a little late on this!  A week ago today, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter opened up at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.

I. Have. No. Words.

Except to say that I really, really want to go.  I’m dying to go.  I’m not one for swarming in crowds, but I’d chance it for this, almost.  Well, if I lived a little closer than I do, that is.  Here’s a fun little video highlighting the grand opening of the park, complete with glimpses of J.K. Rowling and all of our favorite wizardy boys…

In other Harry news, the filming for Deathly Hallows is now complete.  That news in and of itself hurt for me to hear a little bit.  I’m really glad the book is being split into two films, because I’m honestly glad to be able to stretch that little bit of new Harry Potter joy out for a wee bit longer, and now at least I know that when the films are done, I’ll have this lovely park to look forward to!  Hope the butterbeer is still fresh!
