Today I stumbled upon a neat Tunblr blog called Harry Potter Facts and spent a good portion of the morning reading through all its archives. Here are some of my favorites (most have to do with what happens to Harry and the gang after book 7):
I’m not sure if there will be another book series in my lifetime that will be as loved as much as Harry Potter. I can’t wait until my children are old enough to start enjoying J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world! J’s friend tells us that his kids shout things like “Crucio!” and “Impedimenta!” to each other when they fight. And while I can’t say that the use of an Unforgivable Curse on your sibling is good behavior, you can’t deny that it’s stinkingly cute.
P.S. — Hurricane Irene (downgraded to Tropical Storm Irene by the time it hit us) has passed by without inconveniencing us with even a blackout. J even went out for lunch today and tells me that the roads in our neighborhood aren’t flooded at all. However, I know that others were not so lucky. My parents tell me that a large tree fell in their back yard, but that it fell away from the house so there was no damage done aside from a few flattened bushes. As far as I know, all my friends and family who were in the hurricane’s path is safe, and for that I am thankful.
I had written the post before this one — The Art of Clean Up — yesterday and scheduled it to post today because I was afraid that we would be suffering a blackout…but obviously I had nothing to worry about!
I hope that none of my readers was hit too hard by Irene, and that you all remain dry and safe!
