=) A friend told the reporter I had cool props. I have 3 trunks of stuff I loan out for the Potter parties. Pieces of fur (fake), "flame" lamps, purple fairy lights, and my new fave, a projector that makes the ceiling disappear into a mass of twinkling stars.

I'm wondering, are you going to come to the Netherlands for the Dutch release of the book? ;)
