And the Magic Begins

Have I mentioned I'm a huge Harry Potter fan?
An enormous Potterhead.

I can't tell you how many times I've read the books.
Well, I can.
I read the first book soon after it was released.
I was reading it to a friend's daughter,
the quintessential bedtime read,
and was intrigued by the story.
My friend insisted I'd like the book,
so I bought it.

And fell in love.

Each time a new book was released,
I would reread the series from the beginning.

Whenever a movie is released,
same thing.

Do the math.
I've read the books many times over.

Part 1 of the last movie is set to be released
on November 19.
Needless to say, I'm well into the series
for the umpteenth time.
I am now reading The Order of the Phoenix.
They're sorting the first years right now.

By far, my favourite character has become
Luna "Loony" Lovegood.
And the actress who plays her in the movies
is spot on!

Lady Fairchilde, Robi and I have a date to see the movie.
I just ordered my t-shirt to wear on opening night.

I wonder if the WB will send it by Owl Post.

Long time no blog.
Didya miss me?
I know, probably not.

BJ's husband sent me an email today,
and I felt it worthy enough to break my blogging hiatus.

I know you've seen these before,
(perhaps not these exact ones)
but they make me laugh every time.

You could probably bring your travel time down to 5 minutes if you run a lot.

Goot to no.

Yeah, I've run into a few slipperies. They are very crafty!

There's no point in beating around the bush. So to speak.

Brings new meaning to Mind the Gap, doesn't it? Think this will catch on in London? They'd probably sell more souvenirs.

No effort to even make up a word. Just Cow 'Something'.

I'm going to this next year.

Thangs you for to halfing me.

Friendly bunch, aren't they?

This is brilliant! I like that their 'friendly security guards' are more than happy to 'sort it out for you'. I'll just bet they are!

Maybe this Elmo is like a Baby Burp and Poop.

I bet Elmo eats here.

Wash by hand in coleslaw then iron at 120C for a nice light snack.

This disturbs me. It's quite possible that this machine cooks hot dogs (though, why you'd need a machine for the sole purpose of cooking hot dogs is beyond me), but the picture of the dog is throwing me off. Is the wiener made of dog meat? Does the machine warm up dog food? Is it for the cremation of small lap dogs? I don't get it.


As Lady Fairchild pointed out, it's especially funny that the Stick Man's NoNo Zone is crossed out (extra points to LF for using the term 'NoNo Zone').

Not quite an anatomically correct figure of a tranny, is it?


Helluva deal for fresh herpes, I'd say. I guess there's no frozen herpes available, since the freezer is out of control.

WHAT THE?! I don't want to know what this tastes like or, for that matter, smells like.

This is one of those retro grenades, like those huge cell phones from the 90s.

But if you're kidnapped, call someone else.

A glass of wine or bottle of beer while you're having a mani and pedi is never a bad idea.

I knew my cell phone smelled funny.

Love the fine print at the bottom!

Think there's a stained cape that goes with this t-shirt?

Wang's gotta do what he's gotta do.

This is my favourite one. There is so much going on with this sign, so many random warnings, that I want to rub up against the wall, just to see what happens.
