How about a MRHP meet-up in Orlando this weekend?

I leave tomorrow from good ol’ San Francisco to head to the land of sadness and political failure, aka, FLORIDA. I have never been there and I am a bigot for thinking it’s terrible, but hopefully this trip will CHANGE MY MIND. Well, only about ONE CITY THERE, but you get the point.

It’s finally sort of hitting me and becoming real that I’m going to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. And Deathly Hallows comes out in a week and some odd hours WHAT IS THIS GUYS. My first midnight showing???? LOOK HOW FAR I’VE COME.

I would like to share in some of this joy with you, my fellow reader. A few of you have expressed interest in a Florida meet-up and I WELCOME THIS IDEA WITH OPEN ARMS.

SO! If you live nearby or can make it out to Orlando one of the days, you drop me an email at markreadsandwatches [at] gmail [dot] com so I can pass along contact info. Feel free to also post a comment so other people will know you’re there so we can get an idea of how many people plan to show up.

For the rest of you, I don’t arrive in Orlando until tomorrow night, but I have two full days inside the park before I return home on Monday morning. I’ll have themed galleries of the different parts of the park up on Saturday and Sunday night; I don’t believe those show up in Google Reader, so you may have to check the page that night, and I’ll certainly tweet links to them as well.

I’m very excited to be a part of this and I’m even more excited for the film. I promise you all that there is also a reason I haven’t posted much at all and I promise that the reason is great news for us all. I just ask for your patience because there is so much awesome to come. Thank you, each and every one of you, for your support of my writing. You’re the best fans one could ever ask for.
