My colleagues in the Children Books Department are running around like headless chickens with the last minute preparation for the launch of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I'm smirking in the background. Well, okay, I'm gloating and silently thankful that I'm not involved until this Saturday. But somewhere in my dessicated heart and bitter old soul, I find myself looking forward to this Saturday. And getting my hands on the new Harry Potter novel in the Bloomsbury Adult cover. I think the hype and the excitement is finally getting to me.
Meanwhile, after watching Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, one of my colleague now has Dolores Umbridge on her desktop wallpaper. She was quite taken with that Demonic Matron of Blinding Pink, and has adopted Umbridge as her role model.
Yes, I am slightly disturbed.
Pink is evil.
