Excuse me while I sit in hiding.

As you know, the 7th and final installment of the Harry Potter series was released over the weekend. And please know, right here and now, that if you spoil the book for me, I will find you, and I will cut you.

Obviously I haven't finished the book. In fact, I have about 600 pages to go, since the book is approximately 1,639 pages long. (Or not). (But still). I am about 130 pages in, and it's good. And I fully intend to finish it in the next few days. But until then, I am avoiding the television. And the radio. And the internet, which is quite difficult. And considering the industry in which I work, it is really a task to avoid the news, but I will try.

I had a hell of a time avoiding all of my favorite blogs this morning, for fear that I will read a spoiler. But these are the things I must do in order to not waste the $17.99 I spent on the book at Wal-Mart on Saturday. Which I think is a steal, by the way.

So I will leave it at that. And I promise to return to the internet once I can safely step out of my cave. And please refrain from spoilers. Because I will cut you.
