Harry Potter Dies

OK, I really don’t know if he lives or dies and really do not care either. I have not seen more than 10 minutes of the movies and have not read more than 15 pages of the first book before losing interest, but looking at the news today one might think Harry Potter was not only real, but actually someone who matters to the world today. It is the top story almost everywhere you look…not bad for a Friday.

Yes, this is a Friday update and not a Harry Potter update. I just wanted to screw with the Google results by calling my post “Harry Potter Dies” which is the same reason Wednesday’s was called the “Harry Potter Spoiler,” but there will be no other mention of “He Who Shall Not Be Named” here. Yes, I know about Him too. Much like American Idol, there is no escaping that wizard. Even not reading the books or watching the movies will protect your brain from filling with those plots and characters. Harry Potter is everywhere, and now he is here as well.

Moving on…today sucks. I am not sure if it is just a standard Friday and my tolerance is down due to nicotine withdraw or if this truly is a special Friday, but it sucks either way. Most of my techs do not want to work this weekend and, those that do cannot because I need them for research coming later in the week. Oh the joys of scheduling two locations for four companies…

Given that I am feeling rather down right now I am going to continue this post later in the day when I am feeling more up. As the weekend comes closer my mood should alter. It always does.

More later…

You have eloquently summed up my feelings re: Paris Whats'er-name.

That person (the real "She Who Shall Not Be Named) is a trainwreck for me. I know I should not look and I try not to look, but I look everytime. at least the Potterheads are literate.

I feel your pain.:)

I have to tell you this because I just sat there and thought, "Huh?!!" when I heard it. Just in case Harry dies in the last book, counselors are being lined up to man hotlines for upset children to call for grief counseling. WTF? HP is a FICTIONAL CHARACTER.
