Spells and Spoilers (or something)

Apparently some asshole posted a MAJOR Harry Potter spoiler and my sister saw it. I don't know where said spoiler is posted, so needless to say I am going to throw away the computer and lock myself in a dark room Just In Case. My sister hasn't read the book yet because she is waiting for her copy to arrive from England; I haven't read the book yet because it weighs 40 pounds or something and I don't feel like carrying it around. I might buy a copy to read on the plane going back to LA. I don't know. All I know is that if I find out who dies before reading it I will buy an automatic weapon and use it without reserve.

What's funny about all this is that I have not read Return of the King, as I am waiting until after I see the movie to read the book (I'm weird, I know, but I don't want to be disappointed in the movie), but I don't mind some spoilers for that. I mean, maybe it's just because ROTK was published 50 years ago and it's My Own Fault that I've not yet read it, but still. I actually asked Will to tell me if anyone dies, and to be specific. Of course, this was only because I was tired of crying over Boromir and figured I just wouldn't watch the other movies/read the rest of the book if anyone else I love died. Come to think of it, I missed some major details when I grilled him about it, so there ought to be some surprises still.

In conclusion, I need to take a decongestant.
