Over on Stuart’s Astronomy Blog, he had a really neat post about an upcoming Harry Potter and Book 7 Star Party. This is a brilliant idea that I’m thinking of stealing (maybe some of you might also consider stealing his idea). All the book stores around here are planning to open at midnight to sell book 7. Many of the bigger ones are already planning special events – street carnivals, costume shows, etc – but the small independent book stores don’t all have the resources to humor restless children desperately awaiting books. So… A friend and I are going to offer ourselves up as entertainment. Maybe it will be fun, may be it will rain, but we’ll at least try and give it a try.
