Tonight I take Cat, Queenie, and two of Cat’s friends to the midnight opening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2. In IMAX 3D, because that was the only theater that had five tickets available. First we will have a little birthday party for Cat – her favourite dinner of spring rolls, summer rolls and chocolate cake, a cool craft (we’re making Monster Books of Monsters), and time to visit with her friends, whom she hasn’t seen since school ended.
But really, it’s all about the movie. The coolest movie of the summer. It’s about being up way past bedtime, hanging out in a dark theater, wearing the silly glasses and eating junk food, waiting for good to vanquish evil for all time.
Best birthday party ever. For Cat and for me. I can’t wait.
