Am I the only blogger who’s never read any Harry Pothead books or seen any of the movies? I’ve heard the books are great but the subject-matter doesn’t pique my interest in the slightest. I did notice when Daniel Radcliffe, the kid who plays Potter in the films, recently stripped on stage for his role in Equus. (Yowsa!) Is that wrong?
Lean and I hung out for a bit on Saturday and she revealed a dark secret – her Mom is a BIG ol’ Harry Potter fan. Apparently she dressed up in an elaborate costume for the much-extolled book 7 release at her local bookstore. So fantastic was her get-up, she won a Best Costume award! Lean said she’s never heard her Mom so excited about anything in her entire life. She even quipped, “I’m so pumped” which makes me feel insufferably unhip.
P.S. What the hell is a muggle?
