I didn’t anticipate when I started this blog that I would actually have a Harry Potter label as a way to organize my posts, but after the third blogpost about HP, I figure it’s actually useful. After all, in NYC I have experienced THE QUIDDITCH WORLD CUP and a display of props and costumes from the movies at Discovery Times Square.
At the end of March, my friend Kyle at work emailed a bunch of us to organize a tour of the Federal Reserve Bank of NY. Space was limited and we were not able to get on FRB’s calendar until June, but we still signed up. I later chatted with Kyle about my 28 Things list and we decided that since I wouldn’t have signed up for the tour without his initial email and since we hadn’t gone on it yet, that it should count. If you disagree, please take it up with my lawyers.
Last week, Katie, Jessica and I ventured off to Orlando, Florida for a little “sisters” retreat. I know what you’re thinking, “Ugh ERIN, is this just ANOTHER post that’s not REALLY about NYC that you’re going to try to turn INTO a post about NYC?” Yes. Yes it is.
It’s pretty obvious that one of the best things about living in NYC is that there is always something to do. It’s not as obvious that one of these things to do would be to watch the International Quidditch World Cup. If you aren’t familiar with Quidditch, we probably aren’t very good friends. It is the game featured in Harry Potter, and while I don’t have a Gryffindor scarf (Emily), I did spend a good amount of time at my cousin Claire’s wedding right after the last book was released acting out spells with some of my other cousins. Yes, we are really cool and we are fully aware of this. I also have been frantically re-reading all seven books and re-watching all six movies in anticipation of HP and the Deathly Hallows (which Emily and I might go see after our Rockettes experience on Thursday).
