    Man, all I do is work work work! big_smile

    Today I'm going to Universal Studios and go into all the shops at the new Harry Potter land. It's finally slowed down so I'm going to take videos and pictures of the inside of all the shops.

    Then I'll make articles and videos about all the exclusive Harry Potter merchandise, maybe making full articles about individual items.

    Then I suppose I'll have to ride some of the rides with my friends I'm going with. Right now is a great time to go to the theme parks here, crowds are gone for a bit.

    It's a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it! cool

      I love the way that you constantly come across as the King of Cool, and can pull off writing thousands of words about Mickey Mouse and Harry Potter without losing any of your 'streed cred'. I could not pull that off.

        Me cool? Hardly, at least I don't think others see me that way. I think I come across as a bit blunt and cold. hmm

        But yes, I'm back and it was a great day. Pictures will be posted on this thread in about,,,,, 30 minutes! smile

    Aw man, that does sound pretty tough.  Make sure you get a big breakfast before you head out.

    Poor Bill!  Your life is neverending drudgery!  Wear your sunscreen and a nice hat, and remember to stay hydrated.  Don't let those kids knock you down.  Have fun, no matter what.

    Allrighty,,, I'm back! If your around this area, now is the time to go to Harry Potter land. The next few weeks will be slow, at least for theme parks.

    It was not crowded, but there STILL was a line at Ollivanders magic wand shop! So I took pics of the HoneyDukes candy shop, lots of yummy stuff there.

    Plus Zonko's, the Harry Potter games shop. And a little bit of everything else, enjoy!

      Your welcome. The next few months are the best time to go as far as avoiding the crowds. Except for a week before and week after any of the Holidays. smile

      Yeah, I guess I'm going to have to accept the fact that I'm going to have to get in line to get in there. I want to do a full article about that shop so I need to really see it and take pics of it.

      I'm doing a youtube slide show of all the candy at HoneyDukes, I took a few dozen pics. People had their arms full of that stuff!  lol
