LOL, there are lion heads on the exterior of the garage, plus lions on the pillars at the bottom of the drive. I'll have to take a picutre next time I'm there and put it in my avatar.

...when you now want lion door-knockers...

(...and why does that remind me of Young Frankenstein? :gigglesnort: Sorry. Immature of me. ***ahem*** I'm OK now.)

... when you're watching VH-1 and the video for 'Good Life' by One Republic comes on, and you expect to see this video:

....when you see a pair of 3D Harry Potter glasses on a cantaloupe sitting on your counter and know that your 15 year old son totally gets your geekdom (since he brought them back for me)

...when you go to the Toys-R-Us near the theater right after seeing DH-Part 2, because you just feel like you need a souvenir of some sort.

...when you come away with a truly creepy and really outstanding "action-figure" of Voldemort. (He looks really awesome -- more like Voldy than the real Voldy did. Alas, they did not have one of Snape. )

When you are depressed because you didn't realize ahead that there would be special Harry 3-D glasses, and now it's too late to get a pair.

...Then you think, why didn't I think of that!

When you are depressed because you didn't realize ahead that there would be special Harry 3-D glasses, and now it's too late to get a pair.

...and now you are searching desperately for a theater that still has them.

... when you and a co-worker (also a HP fan) have started referring to a certain person from another organization who is difficult to work with as "Professor Umbridge."

... when another co-worker is describing an antagonistic meeting with this person as "worse than the debt ceiling negotiations" and says that the person in question just sat there "puffing up like a toad" and you and HP-fan co-worker look at each other and try not to crack up because neither the person who said that nor our boss read HP and have NO IDEA why that was so funny.

When you turn to the ABC channel and it is airing Chamber of Secrets on a Sunday night, like last night, for the 10,000th time of which you have seen and own your own copy and then stop and watch it anyhow.

...when you're watching Big Bang Theory and Sheldon says, 'Oh look, it's 98% of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone...' when the film is on TV and you go, 'There's far less than 98% of the book in the film!' Then your boyfriend points out that it's probably a comment about a previous joke rather than an observation on the film...

Daughter starting reading the Lord of the Rings series (finally--I thought she'd read it already). She's been meaning to read it for a while, she's not just reading it because her boyfriend wants her to, but she did admit that her boyfriend will appreciate it once she's read it because apparently he tends to make analogies to things from the series and she's like what?

So I asked her "has he read Harry Potter?"

Daughter: "I don't think I could go out with him if he hadn't."

....when you know that your 17 year old son really does like the HP series, even though he protests vehemently....he'll grow out of it....or, perhaps I should say, he'll grow back into it.

....when you are delighted to "find" this thread, having not located it since "the move".

...when you watched the HBP movie yesterday while emptying your overloaded e-mail inbox....and when the PS3 automatically began to play it a second time, you didn't get up to shut it off.

...when you note the following while scoping out a new knitting designer:
1) she refers to e-mail notifications as "owl posts"
2) she shows the issues of knitting magazines that have published her designs, with the caption "Dumbledore loves them!"

Curious? Check out "tiny owl knits" on ravelry.com . I'm about to become obsessed with knitting her beehive quilt.

A knitting friend and I were just talking about that quilt, freshwater. I think I would not make it half way and all those hexipuffs would make me insane. It is a nice way to use up your extra bits of yarn though (or if you buy yarn specifically for it)

...when you're coming home from work late at night and you see an owl take flight from the roof of another neighbor's house and you're jealous because the owls are always on the other side of the street. 

...when you wonder if the owl is just hunting for food or delivering a letter to someone. 

...when you start reading the books again and writing down questions to post on the forum in and effort to get book discussions going again. 

...when you're excited to actually be discussing the books again and thankful for all who participate, but sad because the group is so small.
