I don't line up for movies or concert tickets or book releases or new i-anythings.
I had my trusty walkman when everyone was shopping for CDs. Some of my movies are still on tape. I still taped shows until our VCR broke last year. I got a cell phone in 2005. I make lists in notebooks and use a paper calendar. I write letters. And I haven't read Twilight or The Hunger Games.
Or Harry Potter.
I kind of like what I like...for me. I like knowing that I like something just because I like it. I do eventually get around to liking what everyone else likes, (see above), but I want it to prove something, and stick around first before I spend any money on it. If it's good, it'll still be there when I want it.
And...I want it. And, in all honesty, what self-respecting aspiring kids' writer can say she hasn't read about "the boy who lived"?
The time has come.
Platform 9 3/4, I'm going in.
If I can find it...
You'll find me in a cupboard under some stairs for the next little while.
