I’m Going Off the Grid
I will not be answering my phone.
I will logging off of msn.
I will be logging off of Skype.
I will not be going onto Facebook, reading blogs or news websites or checking any of my 8 emails.
In fact, I’m going to unplug my computers, just in case.
I will be incommunicado for however long it takes me to read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
When the 6th book was released, I waited by my front window until the letter carrier came to deliver it (I pre-ordered, because it’s 40% off if you do that). She look quite amused when I jumped across my couch to greet her at the window in order to get the book into my hot little hands as quickly as possible. I tore open the package and read. And read. And read. And I didn’t stop reading until it was done, 15 hours later. Even when I was cooking (a girl has to eat at least once ever 15 hours, you know), I was doing it one handed, so that I could hold the book and read as I cooked. And when I went to sleep at 3 am after finishing the book, I slept the sleep of a woman who knew that no one had been able to spoil anything by revealing any of the books secrets. And, as I’m sure you know, the Deathly Hallows is the 7th and final book, where the final outcome will be revealed. And thus I must ensure that no one can spoil even the smalleset detail for me! And so, off the grid I go.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to go and sit on the front steps until the letter carrier arrives.
