post the eleventh

Were this post the twelfth, it would be even more fitting...alas.

I took my final for my fundamentals of teaching class this morning and rewarded myself with the purchase of Book the Twelfth in Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events series. I've been as excited as you can imagine for this book. Well, to tell the truth, I wasn't quite as excited about this book as I was about Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, but I've been pretty excited. They fed me little hints and clues about the book one day at a time since July. Now I finally have the book.

I read it in two hours, which makes me wonder what on earth I'm going to do with myself now. I've been waiting for months for this book, and I'm already done with it. Maybe I'll read it again...

- Optimistic.

Argh, I read Half-Blood Prince in three and a half hours, and after I finished I sat there going "holy crap...now I have to wait another three or so years before the final novel comes out. What am I going to do?!" Sigh.

Now I have Harry Potter burnout. Oh well.

I think that's what happens to everyone who waits for years in fervid anticipation for a book.

Oh well.

Snapey Snapey Snape! La la la!

Have I mentioned that Snape is the coolest character ever, because he is.

Unfortuantely, I haven't read the Lemony Snicket books.

Ha ha, you can't read it again, that's what you get for being nice and letting people borrow it.

Entirely through your inspiration, I am going to read these books. Well, I suppose the movie also played a role, but I was also excited about the movie because of you. But I checked out too much already from the library, so I am patiently waiting. And reading. Do I have to go in order?
