Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Book 7 Countdown..

hp-book-7.jpg

Alright all you Harry Potter geeks- yeah you- I see you re-reading Book 6 on the train to work to catch up on the plot in preparation for the July 21st release of the FINAL HARRY POTTTER!! 3 hours, 46 minutes, 53 seconds… watch the countdown on Mugglenet, the best Harry Potter site on the net.

The theories and speculations about Harry’s fate are reaching a fever point. Many think that Harry is doomed to die, because a) the prophecy said that either he or Voldemort must die b) in mythological literature the hero often dies c) so that no one can write “Harry Potter 8” or some other lame book about what Harry does post-Hogwarts.

The official Artful Dodger guess: Harry doesn’t die. Voldemort does. Dumbledore isn’t really dead. Snape is good. Post your opinions in the comments section above.

We’ll see if I’m right this weekend!

Outlet shopping anyone?

If you are lucky enough to live near one of the Chelsea Premium Outlets, here is a guide to making the most of your trip.

Step one- sign up for great coupon deals! Go to www.premiumoutlets.com , click on VIP club, click on Join Now. After you have entered all of your info, you will receive a printable voucher for a free coupon book, redeemable at the Information Center. When you arrive, go to the Info desk and pick up your coupon book. Say for instance you want to use the “$20 off a purchase of $100 or more” at Off Saks- simply hand the book to the cashier when paying. They will give you the discount, and sign off on the book to indicate that you have used that coupon. You do not have to use all of the coupons in one day- keep the booklet and use it the next time you come back.

Step two- eat a big breakfast. You will need fuel for shopping.

Step three- print out a map of the outlet shopping center, and circle the stores you absolutely must see. The place is huge and unless you spend five hours there you can’t see everything, so make a game plan.

Have fun, and remember- outlets are very hit-or-miss. You might score a fabulous Dior bag half-price, or a Burberry trench 30% off, or you might go home empty-handed.

And no, there is no such thing as a Louis Vuitton outlet. 😦
