EEEK! I didn’t even know about this, then the Science Center sent my mom an email saying there was some kind of Potter thing, so she signed up for the family, thinking I’d like it, maybe (she doesn’t get my obsession), and I looked it up here AFTERWARDS, and OMG, it’s the thing I kept wishing I could see but couldn’t because I live too far away. Wow. A warning to Torontonians: places will go fast, you need to register early (as in now), since members get email updates and such, and we will all register really fast. So gogogogo!

I would like to see the exhibit, but I live in the Rockies. So I need to save my money on a once-a-year trip. If only the exhibit come to Seattle or someplace close by.

Well, I guess I can stop stewing about how to get to Boston by February. Just thrilled at this. Got the news from and friend today and came to check it out — that’s what I get for not checking Leaky more frequently at busy times of year!! — thanks for the details.
