this is the laziest post ever...and it's really poorly written...I mean, way worse than dot dot

I might give up on this HP question extravaganza because I think it's making me lazy. Well, lazier.

I do have to say that I am really enjoying the Great Harry Potter Reread of 2010. It's been a while since I've read them all. Usually when I reread them, I skip the first two books because...well, duh. It's strange, though, I find myself getting weepy at the oddest moments, moments that didn't cause tears the first time I read the books but now that I've read all of them, I spend most of my time all, "THIS IS SO EMOTIONALLY SIGNIFICANT AND I WANT TO CRY" because yeah, you guys, I want to cry. I got teary the first time I saw chubby, little Neville when I was watching The Sorcerer's Stone yesterday. WTF, you guys, WTF?

Not much is going on, which is kind of weird after the past month or two of crazy hellaciousness, and I would probably be spending a lot of time wondering what to do with myself were it not for NaNo and the GHPR2010 and NaBloMe.

In other news, I took Max for a walk yesterday and two things happened:

1) I lost his poop in a pile of leaves, because it was a HUGE pile of leaves and his poops are little. When I told Joe about it, he was all, "WHY DID YOU LET HIM WALK IN A PILE OF LEAVES? and I will explain more about that in a moment

and 2) Someone had their dog off of his leash, which is fine if your dog is well-behaved, I suppose. Anyway, so suddenly this giant German Shepherd is running straight at me and instead of having a normal person reaction and being, I don't know, cautious around the 90 pound stranger-dog, I was all, "LOOK AT YOU!" and bent down so I could hug him and love him and call him George. Only his name was Buddy. Anyway, he didn't rip my face off, so that's awesome.

Yeah, so the pile of leaves thing. Joe and I were walking Max a while ago and I was letting Max frolic in leaf piles and Joe was like, "I wish you wouldn't do that," and I was all, "why not?" and he was like, "because he'll get bugs all over him," and I was like, ", WHAT." Apparently Joe wasn't allowed to play in leaf piles when he was a kid because his parents told him he'd get bugs all over him. And I was all, "GO AHEAD MAX YOU PLAY IN ALL THE LEAVES." Then I tried to push Joe in a leaf pile but it didn't work because he's way taller than me so really all that happened is that I almost fell over. True story.

Anyway, today's HP question is something about what character you'd be if you lived in HP-land and my answer is I DON'T KNOW, YOU TELL ME. tell me, please.


  1. There are bugs everywhere!

    Also, why are you even asking which character you would be? You would obviously be Hermione. Which, I guess, makes me Ron. I'm okay with that.

  2. Joe: You're missing out on the leaves.

  3. Joe, I am definitely not smart enough to be Hermione.

    Ashley, I KNOW.

  4. I'm making Seth watch Lost and I keep getting all weepy remembering the finale, too.


  5. I feel like I am going to have to watch Lost just so I can understand what it means why y'all say, "WE HAVE TO GO BACK!"

  6. Joe - Did your parents have weird phobias? Why freak out about the particular bugs that might be among some leaves?
    Heather Anne - I too am lost when it comes to Lost.

    I am Hermione, for real. In fact, the first time that I saw Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, it was in a grad school class (long story) and my older brother happened to be in the same class (another long story), and when Hermione had her initial scenes and she was being very know-it-all and perfectionistic, my brother leaned over to me and hissed, "Hey, THAT'S YOU!!" I took it as a compliment because Hermione Granger is an amazing person. Of course, on some occasions, I am Luna, but that is also awesome because Luna is also an amazing person.

  7. Joe, you were robbed of your childhood. I think that's clear.

    Let's go with Oliver Wood. He seems like a good guy and I'm fan of the Scottish accent, so there you go.

  8. I honestly don't feel like I missed out on much by not getting to jump in leaves.

  9. I wasn't allowed to play in leaves either.

    I'm going to pretend like I didn't see the Lost comments. I still have a lot of Lost feelings.
