Harry Potter

Harry Potter has been released in the US as of yesterday. I'm a little sad that I didn't get to go see the premier like I have the last two movies. I asked Mom to babysit Chloe when we go see the movie and she is on vacation in Colorado right now so it wouldn't have worked out anyway. I don't really think midnight showings of movies are in my immediate future anyway. I started reading the series again a few weeks ago and finished the last book on Tuesday so I am sufficiently caught up and am ready to see the latest installment of this wonderful series. I really can't wait to be able to go.

I took a quiz on facebook called "Which Hogwarts Teacher are you Like?" The first time it said I was Umbrigdge so I promptly took the quiz over. The second result was not much better and said I was Lockhart. I decided not to take the quiz again because if I ended up being Hagrid it would have driven me to kill myself. Boo! Russ was Professor Lupin. Why couldn't I get a nice person like that??? I would even take the furry little problem to go with it.

And since it's Harry Potter time again, I thought I would put a little poll on here for you Harry Potter fans out there!

1. Who is your favorite Harry Potter character and why?

2. Who is your least favorite Harry Potter character and why?

3. Which book was your favorite and why?

4. Which book was your least favorite and why?

5. Do you own any Harry Potter merchandise besides the series and what is it?

Here are my answers:

1. My favorite Harry Potter character is Luna. I love how blunt she is and how she walks to the beat of her own drum. And I agree that mistletoe is full of nargles.

2. My least favorite character is Hagrid. I hate that he is a drunk who screws up everything by opening his big, fat half-giant mouth. Plus, he cries way too much. I hope Grawp steps on him accidentally.

3. My favorite book is The Order of the Phoenix. I love Dumbledore's Army and I love how the kids rebelled against Umbridge, the old hag. Not to mention, the way Fred and George left school was spectacular!

4. My least favorite book was Chamber of Secrets. It's not bad by any means, but I just don't like snakes!

5. Ha ha. I own a Dumbledore's Army t-shirt, Harry Potter glasses (fake, plastic ones), a Hedwig plush, a chocolate frog that I haven't opened, a bag of Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans, a pop-up Sorcerers Stone book, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard. I would like to get Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them eventually. I would also like to get hard back copies of the books I have in paperback for my collection.

1. Who is your favorite Harry Potter character and why?

Wow, that's a tough one. I love Harry, and I would relish being in Ginny's shoes. :-)

2. Who is your least favorite Harry Potter character and why?

Umbridge...I just hate her so much.

3. Which book was your favorite and why?

I LOVE the 7th book (Deathly Hallows). I'm actually reading it for the gazillionth time right now.

4. Which book was your least favorite and why?

I didn't really have a least favorite, but if I had to pick I would also say Order of the Phoenix just because I hate Umbridge so much.

5. Do you own any Harry Potter merchandise besides the series and what is it?

I have all of the DVDs so far, but that's it.
