Nerd alert! I'm sitting here at my desk and still have goosebumps. Why, you ask? Well, I just saw the first full-length trailer for the first part of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows."

Yes, I'm a Pott-head (clever, right?) and as such November can't come soon enough.

Now usually, I'm able to restrain this geeky side of me (I'm 29 for crying out loud) but this trailer really did just whip me up into a frenzy. In fact, I even teared up (I fully realize I should be hanging my head in shame and probably will once this trailer-high wears off).

But after reading all the books and spending a decade watching these movies and watching these characters grow up (the first book was published in 1997 and the first movie was released in 2000), it is, at least in my mind, somewhat epic that we are nearing the end. With the same cast and crew for each movie, it was easy for audiences to get totally immersed in the world of Hogwarts. We care (some of us a little too much) about this world and its characters (including a very yummy-looking Harry...Gawd, I need help).

Aw shucks, but enough with my sniffling gushing about Harry Potter. Check it out for yourself. I've posted the trailer below.
