YES, WE ARE NERDS


Andrew and I have read all of the books out loud together several times, own all the movies, and watch them more often than any others that we own...


And we have been anxiously awaiting this day for a very long time. We are nerdy enough to be one of those crazy midnight premiere ticket holders you saw on the news waiting in ridiculously long lines to see Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. However, we are still a level lower on the Geek-O-Meter than those who showed up in full Wizard costumes. (But if we were being completely honest here, if I was younger and still single...I would totally be one of them.)



Here we are getting in line at about 9pm.




Check out all the people who got there even earlier than us to stand in line...




... the line kept going around the corner of the building...




...and back behind the theater.





Every screen in the theater was devoted to Harry Potter...3,000 people in total! Crowd control was handled surprisingly well. We were seated and ready to go about 2 1/2 hours beforehand. Though I have to say...that's a long time to wait. As you can see, things got a bit crazy. Andrew resorted to digging through women's purses for sunglasses to entertain himself with. (Jared looks like he was beginning to lose it too!)




Despite the show starting about 45 minutes late, the movie was FABULOUS. It diverted from the book a bit, but Andrew and I were not disappointed in the slightest. Check out what time we stumbled into the car afterward! By the time we drove the 30 minutes back to Rexburg and fell into bed, I could see streaks of sunlight on the horizon in the east. If you are judging us right now...you can just get off your high hippogriff! The experience was TOTALLY worth it.
