  •  I was just scrolling down to say Umbridge!!! (0+ / 0-)

    you beat me to it!  Good for you!!!! Yup, this is EXACTLY LIKE Delores Umbridge coming in.... Nice to read about someone else who sees the same thing!

    Yeah, I am rereading the series too.  Can't wait for the 'Order of the Phoenix' movie and then, THE Book.....

    We should do an HP bookclub.  I am sure that there will be posts...oh, but I hope that we don't have spoilers.

    Well, I don't want to go off topic, because this is so, so important and I am so glad that the Dems are standing up to these @#$%%^%$.... Ohhhhh....

      I read the first HP in the fall of 1998, right after it came out here, and I've been hooked ever since.  The movies are of course not nearly as good as the books, but the previews of OOP look pretty good.  Helena Bonham-Carter as Bellatrix is just about perfect - can't wait to see her up against Gary Oldman!

      But it will be devastating when I read the last pages of the Deathly Hallows.  But then, I can always read it again!

      •  Didn't know re. HBC- great casting... (0+ / 0-)

        Who is Gary Oldman playing-losing track?  The casting has been magnificent...Though I adore Emma Thompson, thought she wasn't quite scattered eno. for 'what's her name'... other than that they have been spot on!  What do you think is going to happen to Ron and Hermione? (I hope they grow and get married...I'm such a romantic....)  Do you think Snape is Dumbledore's man or V's?

        Yeah, I do not tire of rereading these books; (frankly most nights I read a little before I go to sleep; I think JK is such a good writer, v. funny in places and I just enjoy it.)

        Let's keep in touch : )

          I see we are as one on HP - I read them the same way.  Gary Oldman plays Sirius.  Yes, I think Ron and Hermione will survive and be together - I also think Snape killed Dumbledore on DD's command, and that he's D's man to the last, because I think he was in love with Harry's mother, Lily.  I have zero evidence for that, I just think it!  Guess we'll find out in two weeks!

          I'm sure there will be an HP diary when the last book comes out - there are quite a few of us here.
