Well, the cool thing about the Harry Potter Party was that we got the book at the discounted $17.99 rate

certainly there would be small shops involved as well, but a larger shop is by def a LARGER shop - thus more traffic, thus more sales, thus higher attendence.

but the math suggests strongly that most people affected by premier events would have been at larger stores: there are more stores to have events, the larger stores have higher visibilty, each store is itself larger and can accomodate more people/stuff, the larger stores have larger customer base and would thus pull more people.

and the chains here ALL have coffee shops of some kind now

I don't really think arguing the price of the HP books is the most salient of criticisms with thim

you can start an AA kind of thing for us.

Do you feel uncomfortable at parties without your laptop?

Do you have an post count of over 30 a day?

Do you feel the need to post just before bed?

Has gen[M]ay affected your relationships with friends and family?

You really are a n00b aren't you? It's okay

I've been looking for an intarweb 12 step program for years I just got a IRL boyfriend and that took care of things.

children are always going to want for things and (some) parents are always going to cave. better it be for decent literature than video games.

I don't get the n00b comment. Have you made a a bunch of threads here about this that I have missed?

just the fact that you have to put "IRL" in front of boyfriend at all scares me.

The students are over-stimulated. Willie, remove all the colored chalk from the classrooms.

I warned you! Didn't I warn you? That colored chalk is forged by Lucifer himself!
