he was born in 1980, which makes him 37.

freeform has bee running the movies all weekend & it's making me want to re-read the series again. i put them on the booklender list (lost my copies in the shuffle of life) to pad out the list when i was running low on titles. but now i've found other books that i've never read before so they get priority over stuff i've read before.

in other fictional july birthdays; indiana jones july 1, 1899 & daniel jackson july 8, 1965

ignoring, for the moment, the reported leaked plot of harry potter and the cursed child, are you interested in seeing the play/reading the book?

i had some vague interest in it at first, but now i'm very much in the indifferent camp. i think that the story ended long ago & there really is no reason to continue it.

on the other hand, i have a small interest in the fantastic beasts and where to find them movie(s).

someone made up a quiz based on the questions you get at pottermore to sort you into a house.
And before you say “omg, that equals to more than a hundred percent!” this quiz works a little differently than most. Instead of questions that are like “"this" answer is the Slytherin one and “this” answer is the clearly Hufflepuff one” I believe that the questions work more like “this option gets you 5 points for Slytherin, this one gets you 4, this one gets you 3 to add up at the end” etc for all the houses, so they’re like “how much is this a _blank house_ thing to do” which is probably a more accurate representation than the former option.

BTW my results: 82% hufflepuff, 76% ravenclaw, 46% griffindor, 36% slythern

in one of the harry potter movies (i can't remember! i'm a bad fan!) harry uses the floo network for the first time & says something that sounds like "diagonally" instead of diagon alley & ends up in knockturn alley. (which is apparently diagonally across from diagon alley.)

that got me to thinking that since you have to speak your destination clearly, that the floo network would be hard to use for people with a speech impediment or an heavy accent. unless it could be worked out that someone else outside of the fireplace-thing could drop the floo powder in the fireplace-thing & say the destination for them.

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has taken to revealing new details about the characters in her books through the Pottermore site—because hundreds upon hundreds of printed pages just cannot contain her genius—and she’s finally weighed in on a long debated topic: why the Dursleys hate Harry Potter so much. Sadly, it has nothing to do with that Horcrux theory.

If you’re the kind of fan who prefers to find the new info for themselves, you can head to Pottermore to click around a new interactive Deathly Hallows chapter and find out the new details for yourself, which include not only the reason the Dursley’s hated Harry but other tidbits about Dumbledore and Hagrid and what they meant to Harry.

As for the Dursleys, a convincing fan theory held that, because Horcruxes can influence those around them and Voldemort had made one out of Harry, the Dursleys’ dislike of him was exacerbated by Voldemort’s magic. But Rowling states that as for Vernon Dursley—true to form—he hated Harry for much more human reasons: he felt embarrassed by his father, James Potter, who Harry uncomfortably reminded him of.

so, if your theory was they were petty & jealous, you were right.

it's warm during the day, but cold at night.

sonic has a summer of milkshakes with a bunch of new flavors. my waistline is in danger of expanding.

for some reason my brother wants cake. now i do too. (more danger to my waistline)

while i still watch the amazing race, i'm not as excited as i once was.

i don't think i've been interested in any new movies coming out since harry potter.

i just finished reading harry, a history by melissa anelli the webmistress of the leaky cauldron. it's about the history of harry potter (how the idea come about & how the books got published) and craziness that followed, which didn't explode until 1999 when the third book was published and livejournal started. in many parts of the book you could remove the words harry potter and insert the name of most any fandom (star trek, star wars, stargate), since the book touches on many issues fandom deals with; fanfic, canon, shipping wars & spoilers. while reading it i started thinking; what would fandom be like without the internet?
