There's blood in my mouth 'cause I've been biting my tongue all week

Finished! I'm surprised but it really didn't take that long to read the new Harry Potter book. I got home about 12:30 a.m. Saturday and read until a little after 3 a.m. I woke up at 11, made some coffee and read pretty much straight through until 9 p.m. when I finished it. Tippy used the time to take naps on my lap and I tried to walk around every s often so blood clots wouldn't form in my legs. Wouldn't it be awful to just finish reading Harry Potter only to die of a brain hemorrhage from a stray blood clot? I bet J.K. Rowling would come to your funeral, though.

So I really liked the new book but I haven't been able to talk with anyone about it. They're all just starting to read it now so I have to sit on all my valuable knowledge. I've only mentioned that there is a lot of making out in the new book. Those kids are 16 so I guess it's about time they got their game on.

One final Potter comment. When I got my book Friday, Barnes and Noble gave me a free colored wristband. You know those ones that are everywhere now like the Lance Armstrong "Livestrong" bands? Well this one is green and has an owl with the date July 16, 2005. I've been consciously avoiding the wristband craze ... up until now.

Want to support cancer victims? No thanks!
How about Parkinson's? Nah.
Goodwill? I'll Pass.
Harry Potter? Hell yeah, where do I sign up?

The worst part was I must have looked at a calendar four times yesterday to figure out what day it was. It was the only time my wristband would ever be useful and I completely forgot about it.

EEEK, Jenny Lewis/Rilo Kiley reference!

You have to make a special order to get a Livestrong braclet here in Canada.

Shawn: So what did you think of the book?

Trevor: I thought you'd like that.

It was PDG (pretty darn good) I thought.

I've got some ideas about Snapey-poo and stuff... And you were right about there being a lot of making out in this one. Oh to be 16 and a wizard again!
