Hello? Anyone there? I'm still here.
Boy, it's been about three weeks since I posted anything. Last I hollered over here, it was to announce a trip we were making to Miami and Orlando, to check some beaches out and to drink Butterbeer. Something came up during the trip that took away my interest in books and reading but I think it's all finally returning back.

its boring job of posing in photos.
The Universal Studios was even more fun. Some of the rides were downright madness - we did the Hulk roller coaster ride at least two times. It's been a long time since I sat in a real loopy winding crazy roller coaster and so this was a lot of fun. The Harry Potter section in the park - which is the main reason we went there - was really very well put together. I loved how we could walk into Honeydukes and get Chocolate frogs, Bertie Botts' Every Flavor Beans, Peppermint Toads, Fudge Flies, and many many more. It was hard choosing what to get but I eventually picked the Chocolate Frog and got the Helga Hufflepuff card. (Harry Potter readers will get the reference.) Can you guess how very much like an excited schoolgirl I was inside there? The poor darling husband indulged my fancies as well. The main Harry Potter ride wasn't that big a deal for the amount of hype this place gets but I still thought it was quite charming. You could actually pretend that you're sitting on a broom and having the ride of your non-Muggle life. Butterbeer, on the other hand, was just a soda drink mixed with a faint sweet tasty hint of something frothy on top. I thought the drink was consistent with the way it was described in the books, but there was still a part of me that wished it wasn't soda (which I don't drink).
I can't wait to get back to blogging and catching up with whatever I missed.
