Hey, everyone! It’s Harry Potter day and even though I’m… not really into the series anymore, I still find myself getting caught up in the excitement of days like this one. Today I thought I’d share some things I read lately.
I admit that I originally had a more kick-ass post planned for today but A) I had homework that needed to be done and B) the lock on my door broke and it took like five hours for the repairmen to unlock the door and fix it while my laptop was inside, so I spent the evening playing Pictionary inside of writing. Which was fun, though very different from how I’d envisioned spending my time.
Anyway. Where was I? Oh yes, things I have read about Harry Potter. The most important is, of course, the new play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which was published today. I have no idea when or even I’ll get around to reading it, but in the meantime I’ve heard all sorts of interesting things: IT’S WONDERFUL. IT’S AWFUL.
There have been rumors of a Pokemon Go-like game based on Harry Potter, which sounded too good to be true… and it was. I suck at games – I was LITERALLY THE WORST at every game on Pottermore – so even if that game really did exist I probably wouldn’t play it in order to avoid embarrassment, but still.
Here are 27 things that happened the year Harry Potter was first published! Note to self: Write a post about remembering important years in your life according to which books were published that year. For instance, the Harry Potter series is the same age as my brother, while I was born the year A Game of Thrones was published, et cetera. Does anyone else do this?
Apparently Harry Potter fans are more likely to dislike Trump? I mean, I’m at the point where I don’t like either, but I’ll take anything I can get if it stops that orange man from becoming our next president. (I do think it makes sense, though – the theme of government corruption is strong in that series, and the generation that grew up reading these books is now old enough to vote, so…)
Last but DEFINITELY not least, here is a quiz about which Hogwarts house your cat belongs to. You need this in your life. Trust me. How else will you know if you and your cat belong to the same house?! My cat is a Slytherin just like me, but I need to take the quiz for all the cats I know. Because reasons. (Which may or may not involve knitting them tiny scarves in their house colors.)
Happy reading! Happy Harry day!
