Yep and from time to time we've had some pretty *fun* parties or adventures here too. If you're looking for more than just talk though, like competition and earning points for doing challenges, you should really sign-up on for the winter*term on the owl*mail team. It opens back up (or may even get it's own new owl*team for winter*term) on November 1st. Right now it's set to private for autumn*term. It's a mail only sign-up like a waiting list team. Winter*term starts December 1st. Nice to meet you too!!

Maybe with the new Hogwarts Express opening in Universal Studios in Orlando (maybe, its just a rumor and some big train cars on the lot right now) people will start getting excited about Harry again. Maybe some newbies (like myself) will join and start chatting again too. Well, for now... Nice to meet you CDJ

Personally, that's actually the last thing I'd like to see. If she wrote them herself, it'd be seen as money grubbing, and if someone else wrote them it'd wind up like the Star Trek and Star Wars novels; making a mess of canon, introducing less compelling characters and just generally lower stakes. You should never continue with significantly reduced stakes (see for instance: why fans generally dislike the last two seasons of Supernatural). As I understand it, the Epilogue was most peoples' least favourite part of the whole HP series.
What I could see being better received and more enjoyable to read would actually be for her to go backwards and tell the stories of the Marauders time at Hogwarts. Then she'd be fleshing out already major characters, and actually giving us a reason to like James Potter.

I suspect sales of the DVD will be brisk in April and May. It will give me a chance to view the entire series again just before going to the final movie when it comes out.

I would like to read the entire series again but do not have the time for that. I did listen to the unabridged books on CD's as they came out when I was driving a lot more, but again they take a long time. I also donated the CD's to the local library.

Do or do not, there is no try...

Apparently the DVD of HPDH part 1 comes out in April, in time for us to watch it 3 or 4 times before part 2 comes out in the theatre. emoticon

Hiya! I'm Amy, and I "heart" Harry Potter! I'm about to begin my yearly re-read of all the books, in preparation for part 1 of the Deathly Hallows movie.

Just typing that made me a little sniffly, so I'm hoping this group can help me through the difficult tasks of saying "goodbye"(ish) to the series of movies and getting rid of some unwanted pounds on the way to a healthier me. :D

I've had a Dementor trailing me all week. First my review at work went not very well, which I expected. I'm not getting a raise this year, although my landlord is (Ireland just got further away). And then I found out yesterday that due to a payroll snafu this week's check is going to be 3 1/2 hours short. They're making it up on the next check, but I'm paying the rent on THIS one.

Grrr...

Same here. I tracked my food today - a little loosely, but better than I have been doing. That's definitely what I need to get a grip on!

It's almost Friday! Too bad I have to work about 10 hours. Oh well, the president of the university is feeding us between the two graduation ceremonies - I usually only eat the veggies, as the rest is fried stuff.

Have a great day!

Slow and steady wins the race, Mary! Sounds like a smart plan - balancing rest & cleaning. Hugs for a great weekend.

Today and tomorrow are (VERY) slow cleaning. I had a rough week and need to rest, but I want this place clean, too.

De-cluttering my life by putting away things that need to be organized better, packing away my "too small" clothes (still good because I only wore them for 12-18 months) so that my closet no longer is so crowded and "accusing." My hubby & Mum also went to Home Depot this morning & bought lots of new perennials & roses - Tomorrow is gardening day. Yay!

Hugs to you all. Have a wonderful weekend!

We will make it a family project soon - another way to relax together! Then, the boys can make their own Hogwarts scarves & such.

If I can stay up late tonight, I might be able to finish OotP. Getting close! Isn't it funny how, even when you know how the book ends, you can't put it down?! The mark of great storytelling!

Mary...I like the idea of boys learning to knit and crochet. Why not. It is relaxing right?

Thank you! Sometimes, I think (no, I know) that my siblings think we're "weird" - way too liberal & "academic" & socially conscious. I'll take it! To me, those are all compliments. However, to be the only one of 9 kids like that can feel a little lonely at times. My cousin who was like me passed away 4 years ago - I miss having her to talk to.

So, is anyone reading an HP book currently? I'm still on OotP. I haven't had the time to read much over the last few weeks. Even reading this for the 6th time or so, I'm thoroughly enjoying it & rediscovering lost tidbits of info that are so important to the series overall.

Hugs to all! Have a great Sunday.

Absolutely! Although, this should not be an issue, as my boys get really angry when someone tries to impose gender roles on them. They will lecture the person (whether it's their 11-year-old cousin or an adult stranger) on how wrong and silly such roles are, detailing how that is not how things are done in our family. LOL! I love it. Their stance makes me feel like my hubby & I are doing something right in how we're raising them.

Tell him (and his brother, in case there's any snickering) that in the Middle Ages, knitting was a guild trade and women weren't even allowed to do it. Totally true.

I do have that book. I wish the school robe came in adult sizes -- I'd make myself one as a bathrobe!

You know, when I first saw COS, I thought I'd KILL for the pattern for Molly's sweater. I took one look at it in the book and knew it would take real magic for me to do it. The body is right up my alley, but the crocheted sleeves are WAY beyond my ability level.

Mary, do you know about the book, Charmed Knits: Projects for Fans of Harry Potter, by Alison Hansel? It has great patterns in it - school scarves & socks, wand holders, Weasley sweaters, etc. I bought it a couple years ago with the hope that I would learn to knit someday. My littlest wants me to make him a Hufflepuff scarf. (He likes Cedric Diggory.) I guess I had better start learning!

Mum & I both want to learn to knit, since we can't stand to just sit & watch movies or tv, but reading a book at the same time doesn't work.

We'll probably play Wii a little later - the boys are out back playing baseball right now, because a storm is rolling in. (It's very grey & cold here right now.)

Enjoy the rest of Sunday & have a great week!

I'm glad you're feeling better, Mary. Don't overdo it too quickly.

We played on the Wii for about 20 minutes. I jumped & waved & did everything "to the extreme" - Boy, that got the endorphins flowing! I have felt better since then & since writing a blog today. Thanks for the well-wishes!

It's almost the weekend - Yay! Have a good Friday, everyone.

Everyone else doing fine?

I'm in a little bit of a funk today, but pulling out of it - I just played Toy Story Mania on the Wii with my sons for 20 minutes, and I make sure I jump around a lot during it, so the endorphins are flowing at the moment. Hope this feeling lasts!

Watching the news last night made me sea sick - all those pools sloshing around - Ugh! It is a good distraction for the kids, though. My boys thought it was funny. That, and the dogs barking & the cats hiding - they didn't know to be more scared by those signs.

So far today, nice & quiet around here - rainy, cool, and peaceful. I hope it stays that way.

Have a wonderful Monday, everyone!

I was in L.A. for the Northridge earthquake back in the 90's. I lived in an apartment building with a pool. In the wake of the tremor everyone congregated in front. The water sloshed back and forth in the pool, and the kids forgot to be scared because they thought the wave action was so cool!

Thanks, Mary. The boys were really scared - it was the biggest earthquake that they have felt and the longest I have ever felt. We had a little damage to Ev's "writing hut" in the back yard (the flooring popped up) and to some of the brickwork on the back patio. Otherwise, all ok. My siblings lost a lot of water in their pools, too. The boys will sleep on the floor in our room tonight, in case there are good aftershocks.

We just had a big, long earthquake. I'm sparking out in the back yard with my two sons, who are scared - They have lived here in s. CA their whole lives, but they have never felt one like that before. Pray for the people in the Mexicali area - that's where the epicenter was for this 6.9 shaker.

Today was very enjoyable - had both (full) brothers & their kids here. Tomorrow, my sister will join us with her kids. (I have 2 full brothers, 1 full sister, 1 half-sister, and 4 stepbrothers, plus 23 nieces & nephews on my side of the family - getting all of us together is nearly impossible!)

Have a superb week, everyone!
