We just feel so angry, all the time.

2. Nor did we get premieres attended by the actors.

3. J.K. Rowling’s book signing tours never came to Australia.

9. People who live in Europe have the possibility of ~bumping into~ JKR wherever they go.

Just saw JK Rowling in the toilets of the Olympic Stadium! Better seeing Bolt in the the 4x100m relay #magic #harrypotter

Expecto Patronum! I just saw @jk_rowling on the tube with her family. How wonderfully normal.

16. JK Rowling has TOLD US that there is a wizarding school like Hogwarts in Australia. WHERE IS IT? WHERE ARE OUR LETTERS? WHY ARE WE NOT THERE RIGHT NOW?!

17. “Why, yes, I’d like to buy some reasonably priced merchandise online.” Too bad the shipping is a billion dollars.

18. So basically, Aussie Potterheads need a lot of money and patience…and a private jet wouldn’t hurt.

Thanks, Jo, for sucking us in so deep.
