Its Finally Here

Saturday morning scene at home
  • Wake up at 8.00 am - which is early for me on a Saturday
  • Go to and track my order
  • It shows it the package is in my City, so it will be home soon
  • Its 10.00 AM and the package is still not here
  • Its 11.00 and ding dong the door bell rings

And Voila.......

I was so happy as I tore open the package, Shekar says what if they shipped you the sixth book instead of the seventh, I gave him the dirtiest stare and told him don't even joke about it.

Grabbed the book and sat on our patio till 2.00 PM and read, ate lunch and then went back to reading. Then around 8.00 PM took break for dinner and then got back to reading at 10.00 PM and stayed up till 2.00 AM and I finished the book. No Spoilers here.... I liked the book, lot of things going on.. but still HBP is my favorite of the series.

So now I'm planning to re-read it very slowly just in case I have missed something. Little sad that the whole Harry phenomenon is over (not really they are 2 more movies and I can always re-read 1-7 ;)...).

My copy of Deathly Hallows..... looks so pristine... and I'm going to pass this on from genration to generation.. just like the Invisible Cloak.

I finally did it

We all have something about us that we like the most. I love my hair. I have typical mallu hair and what that means is a head full of wavy hair. I wrote this post about how I would never cut my hair.

Earlier this year I decided that I was going to donate my hair. I read about couple of organizations and I decided on an organization called Beautiful Lengths. This organization makes wigs and gives them to women who have lost their hair during cancer treatment.

So finally this weekend, I went ahead and cut 10 inches of my hair and now I have short hair. I'm not liking my short hair yet, it takes a little getting used too.

Here is a picture of my chopped off hair.

Upcoming week

This is a major week for all Harry Potter fans, the last book in the series is releasing a week from Today.

I'm so excited, I don't think I have ever been this excited for a book. Like I said before I pre-ordered mine on Amazon, so I'll be getting it on Saturday (morning hopefully).

Here is my plan
- Finish all the chores by Friday night
- Attend Release Party on Saturday Midnight
- Come home get some sleep, till the book arrives
- Read, Read and Read...
- Be done by Monday else call in sick, stay home and read.

I'm going to watch Order of Phoenix tonight....

Have a great Harry Potter week.
