I’ve Really Outdone Myself This Time. Thanks, Harry Potter.

I won. Everyone, I won. That contest you didn’t know was happening? The one where I try to top my own guiltiest pleasure geek out? Well, I won it. Last night.

Let me take you back in time. To last night, I mean.

I decided to order tickets to “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” for next Saturday – the first showing, at 11:30am, like the old lady I am. Normally I enjoy ridin’ solo to the movies, but since they’re all now dine-in theaters around these parts, I feel a little awkward going alone. Thus, I told my sweet manly husband he had to accompany me.

“But I’ve never seen any of the movies,” he argued.

I merely grinned. “You have time to watch them all before next Saturday!”

“I haven’t read the books,” he reminded me.

His protests fell on deaf ears, but then he, like most married folk will eventually do, wizened up and busted out the Big C. No, no, geesh, the other one. Compromise. Condescension.

“How about you make a 5-minute presentation so I’m prepared?” he smirked.

“Yes! I would love to do that!” I exclaimed gleefully. I wasn’t about to let his sarcasm stand in the way of this incredible opportunity to not only write about Harry Potter in bulleted format, but also to use my knock-off PowerPoint software (thanks, Macintosh).

I got cracking right away, and at 10:30pm last night (well past my bedtime), it was ready. “It” being…

The most SPELLBINDING [less-than-]5-minute Harry Potter presentation you’ll ever see, sure to get any HP half-wit ready for the final installment!!!!! 

…I really should get out more.

  1. Seriously, very well played! I hope you and hubby enjoy the movie! I know I plan to.

    • Thank you so much! You’ll have to let me know what you think of the movie! Thank goodness I’ll still have 2 more Twilight movies to look forward to after this, or I don’t know what I’d do. ;o)

  2. Thanks for the refresher. My friend and I are going to the Menlo dine in theatre for the double feature with part 1 at 9:30pm and the newone as 12:01am:-)

    6 hours of geekdom for a meer $20 (plus food)…

    • Believe me when I say it’s my pleasure, ha! Thanks so much for reading (and commenting). I hope you have a GREAT time at the double-feature — now I’m thinking I should have done the same!

  3. Wonderfully done! I’m tempted to try the same for my non-Tolkienized friends who might be wanting to jump into Lord of the Rings someday.

  4. That’s awesome that you actually made the power point. Well played, maritally, too. What’s he going to do, complain? Make fun? It was his idea.

    Now can you explain magnets?

    • Ha! Thanks very much! While I’m not sure how I would fare with magnets, I will say this – creating a PowerPoint about Harry Potter while simultaneously one-upping your spouse is about as good as it gets.

  5. As a complete HP novice , I found this very useful. Although I will probably still avoid HP. And such is my loss.
