but...but..but....

i've finally finished Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (which i began yesterday, on the train to Gombak, sitting beside a man who clearly needed to reacquaint himself with soap, hot water, and a fresh towel). i am...gobsmacked, perhaps, is the word? as Bertie Wooster would say, gorblimey.

i await the next -and last- with (slightly) bated breath.

[oh, and -- if anyone should find themselves on the verge of swearing at a recorded menu when waiting for 'customer service' from their dearly beloved cell-providers -- pressing zero generally connects you immediately to a real human being who will be highly appreciative of all the new combinations of swear words and curses you can possibly come up with, i'm sure. i know, because i did just that earlier this evening. (well i refrained, womanfully, from cussing out the poor child who answered the phone, but am sure that i was far more brusque than necessary. however, i think they bloody well deserve it, their company colour being my favourite green nonewithstanding.)]

I tried that here in Boston and it most definitely did not work.. which is annoying because I'm now on a prepaid which means I pay for every minute of it even though it says toll free.

why are you on a prepaid? :( hmm. well it works with providers in Singapore. however in the states you might have to endure the whole menu and wait...if you don't press anything they generally connect you, no? or there's a number to press to get customer service? (because i definitely don't remember spending inordinate amts of time listening to the tmobile customer service menu...)

Just finished Harry Potter and I was actually kinda disappointed with it. Not as much momentum or plot, compared to the others. Feels like an Exposition Fairy (TM Television Without Pity) hijacked the book, rather than to let the book speak for itself and tell a story of its own...
