Cold Turkey

People have asked me over the past few months if I'm still as obsessed with Dear Harry as I was pre-Deathly Hallows.  To be completely honest, I have to say no.

It's weird, I read the book twice the weekend it came out, had about a week of, "This sucks, it's over," and then I was just done.  I haven't picked up one of the books or watched a movie since.

I still love the story--and it's not that I didn't like the ending.  I'll still go see the rest of the movies the night they come out, buy the DVD's, and keep hunting for those last bits of Potter paraphernalia that I just can't live without.  But it's not quite the same.  I think the suspense was a big part of the fun for me, and now that I, I know.

However, for those of you still in the throes of obsession--or just looking for something fun--two articles: 

First, what I think may be the last column by Lady Lupin, my favorite editorialist over at Mugglenet, wherein she discusses...oh, too many things to summarize.  It's thoughtful, it's nostalgic, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. 

Second, courtesy of WikiHow, "How to Get over a Harry Potter obsession"--if you can't quit cold turkey, that is.
