Harry Potter and the Snakes and Snails and Puppy-dog tails

I don't think this is a spoiler, because it's said in one of the early chapters and isn't very surprising: Dumbledore briefly mentioned that the Dementors were breeding, something that made both me and my sister make a strange face when we read it. I hadn't really thought about the Dementors having sexual organs or any gender at all. Alfie explained her confusion thusly: "There are female ones? I always associated them with being male because they suck the happiness out of everything." Srahmom put her two cents in, wondering what a baby dementor would look like, being pushed around...

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: My thoughts

I went to Borders last night with Alfie to pick up her reserved copy of the book. It was a bit of a zoo. When we picked up Order of the Phoenix at Waldenbooks, we stood in a line of about thirty people, picked up the book and were probably home by 12:30. At Borders this year, we were given a number somewhere in the 500s and everyone milled around until midnight, which was when they finally started lining people up by number.

Christmas in July!

I would settle for Rupert Grint! But that's kind of gross!

To follow up on a previous post: From the delivery reports so far, it looks like all of the deliveries are being made by celebrities who have something to do with what's being delivered. This is fair - if Dale Jarrett showed up on my doorstep, I believe my exact reaction would be, "Hey.... Guy in a Jumpsuit.... It's really amazing to actually meet you in person, Guy in a Jumpsuit. I'm a big fan of... whatever it is you do. Oh well. At least I got my Harry Potter book. Bye." But in something I read about the promotion,...

Look, Your Worshipfulness, let's get one thing straight. I deliver orders to just one person: you.

I can picture it now... *doorbell rings* *srah races to the door to collect her Amazon delivery* *delivery-person hands srah a box* *srah's jaw drops* *srahfamily's collective jaws drop* "Don't everyone thank me at once." If Han Solo delivers my copy of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince a week from Saturday, I'm going to... ... I don't know. Take a picture of him or something. I'm such a wimp....
