So normally I'd save this for my weekly Random Post of Random™, but I wanted to talk about it sooner.

Apparently, there's more than one Harry Potter!

So I know I've said JKR should STFU about my favorite world, but I have to admit, I would read the shit out of any stories about Harry's great grandfather Henry (Harry) Potter.

And if they include it in the FB franchise? Hells, yeah.

Thoughts?

The action was fierce and fast, but that was to be expected; Hufflepuff's Seeker was rumored to be on the verge of signing with a professional team as soon as she left school. Slytherin's Chasers were equally fast, and the balls flew so quickly even Lee Jordan had trouble keeping the action straight.

Fortunately all concerned, the game was not only fast, but clean. Hufflepuff/Slytherin lacked the venom of Slytherin/Gryffindor, which meant fewer fouls, less rough play, and a refreshing lack of foul language. He hovered low by a stand of bulrushes and kept watch for trouble, just in case.

Smokey and I are throwing ourselves around in attitudes, as it’s very hot (for Britain) and very humid. I’m all miserable and sweaty, and I’m sure I can say the same for Smokey but she only sweats through her paws. She has quite sweaty paws, though, and was once found to be allergic to a specific type of kitty litter for that reason.

In other news, I’ve done the first pass of ripping my DVDs to soft copy. I’m left with a few irritations – some of the seasons of Criminal Minds didn’t rip properly and I’ll have to rip them again, this time into MKV files. Plus the titles got somehow mixed up (it was obviously my fault) on the Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes films, and I’m going to have to go through them patiently and make sure the right title is attached to each film. But it is mostly done.

I’m still following what’s coming out about the Grenfell Tower fire – the worst case of a fire since WW2, I think, and was totally avoidable if Kensington and Chelsea had just listened to the people who lived there and actually spent money on the place where it was needed. ‘Not political’ indeed! Ptui!

Wonder Woman

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I finally saw Wonder Woman on Sunday. It was amazing. I had a few issues, Spoilers )

Beyond that, I'm done with the conference I've been planning for the past year. It was a week and a half ago, went off with a few, easily solved hitches. I could have used some more help from my co-chair and a few more days to sleep afterward, but I had a great time at the conference, everyone enjoyed it, and I'm so glad it's over.
