Click Play. (Or Push Play, but who likes them??)

Preface: This is not Disney related. If you hate Universal, just skip this entry. Or peace out. Nah, just kidding. You can stay.

Okay, before you read you need to push the play button. If you aren't going to then just leave (get out...). Okay, if you're in a public place or will be publicly embarrassed by people who won't appreciate John Williams' brilliance then you don't have to, but your reading experience will severely suffer.

One of the things I am most excited about isn't even College Program related... or Disney related. I am so freaking excited for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Islands of Adventure. That's quite a mouthful which is why I usually just call it Harry Potter World. And dude, I'm not kidding about the excitement level. I've been signed up for the email updates since the announcement in 2007. I was planning on visiting as soon as it opened but now I don't even have to make a special trip. I'll already be down there.

Seriously I just keep getting more and more pumped about it. These pictures made me say "Oh my gosh!" out loud, which would have been embarrassing if anyone had been here to hear it. I guess it still is. No, but come on. Who doesn't want to walk around Hogsmeade and see the Hogwarts castle and see the Hogwarts Express and shop in Harry Potter stores and walk around speaking with British accents? Okay, maybe I'm the only one who wants to do the last one...

I'm not gonna lie, the shot with the Hulk in it got me pretty excited, too. I forgot about the proximity of Universal to my new future home and I'm pretty sure it's going to be nice to go to a park that isn't affiliated with where I work. Oooh! See! I threw in something CP related. This wasn't a total bust!

Okay it was... but I needed to get my excitement out.



I'm bored. I'm doing this. Deal with it.

My Life According to...

Pick your Artist:
I pick Andrew McMahon because then I get to cheat the system and use Jack's Mannequin songs AND Something Corporate songs. Win. 

Also, the directions say to choose a song and "cleverly" answer the questions. Guess I'll try my hardest to be clever.

I'm also enjoying throwing songs in, so here is the part where you pause the previous song and play this one for this portion:

  1. I just gasped. Those pictures are so. AWESOME. Homegirl. I AM SO EXCITED. And I knew that you were going to talk about Harry Potter after the first sentence. Weird.

  2. Also the captcha for my last comment was spape.

    I laughed out loud.

  3. Right there with you. I have passes to Universal and I am going to be first in line I tell you!

    I went to the parks last month and we were all reveling at the thought of being able to build Hogwarts. lol. Those lucky construction workers!

  5. I can't wait for Harry Potter world, either!!! I'm SO EXCITED for it, it's so great that we will already be down there when it opens!!! I wish they had an actual date instead of just Spring 2010. Soon enough!
