Harry Potter is Here!

Not that it's doing anybody any good at the moment.

The mountains of boxes arrived a couple days ago at the store. (Last night was my first night since they came in). No simple "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - SALE DATE: 7/21/2007" in black letters on the sides of these boxes. They are specially made white boxes with red lightening bolts and dire warnings in red Harry Potter font all over them.

Ours are also shrink-wrapped. Sort of. Once they arrived, they wrapped them in that plastic they use to keep pallets together. The mountains, not the individual boxes. To make it extra hard to break in.

Wizards and Dragons and Quills of every size and shape have taken over the children's section. There have been several owl and unicorn sightings as well.

Along with the regular festivities for customers, we employees are having a Harry Potter themed potluck contest tomorrow night. Largely owing to that fact that most of our lunch breaks will be between 10 and midnight.

So, I need to think of something good to bring!

Any suggestions?
