The premiere is streaming at 1:00 DST here on the US east coast. I was just in the cafeteria here at work, and the TV there has on CNN. Right now it is pretty much wall-to-wall build up to the Michael Jackson memorial, and I remember that will be at — 1:00 DST here on the US east coast. I don’t know if the memorial will be streamed on the net, too. If so, I wonder if having the two at the same time will affect web traffic.

The weather forecast is not very cheerful for today, I think we can expect some rain to dampen proceedings.

Why oh why do they give away Snape’s “true allegiance” in the poster campaign…?

I’m a little mad,this is the same time as the Michael Jackson memorial. I want to watch that too. Wish they could have moved it till tomorrow.It might take away viewers and the movie. HPHBP deserves full attention darnit!

Guess That Book

To the class's horror, Hagrid proceeded to explain that the reason the skrewts had been killing one another was an excess of pent-up energy, and that the solution would be for each student to fix a leash on a skrewt and take it for a short walk.
