well. the harry potter book came out in melbourne today and erin and i happened to go into angus & robertsons in the city. anyways, there were all these people dressed up as wizards and stuff…and they had hired this kid to do magic tricks. he couldn’t have been older than 16. but he was really good. i have never seen a magic trick before (not counting card tricks and tv of course) and was quite impressed. didn’t end up buying the book cause it’s not my sort of thing (meaning it doesn’t have pictures and word bubbles or isn’t written by terry brooks). but thought that they had put a lot of effort into promoting it. which is more than i can say about free comic book day. i bought erin a book about buddhaism.
