Meanwhile, Back In Hogwarts...
Finally got my copy of the new HP Book yesterday and am still right smack in the thick of relishing it. Can only sneak in a chapter at a time at most since I am designated driver for the fam on weekends...arghh.
So far, I like it. A lot. Truth be told, I probably would've forced myself to like it even if J.K. Rowling had made an awful sequel because of how much it cost me - hehehe. Fortunately, the couple of chapters I've read picks up right where Order Of The Phoenix left off. Teaser: house-elf Kreacher is back! With each page, Harry's world becomes more defined and we get to see how he has matured. It was worth the wait, especially for those fanatics who counted the months, weeks, days and hours till its release. From what I heard from the salesladies at NBS, there was a looong line as early as 6:30am. I also got a nice trade-off for having reserved as early as February. I was given P100 off from my purchase! Them merchandising blokes at Scholastic sure are good at their jobs. At this juncture, the House of Rowling should get a well-deserved 100 points! BTW, chanced upon the ultimate HP fansite the other day. This site even offers wands!
Another interesting piece of trivia which I got to know right about the same time: Honey Labrador, the cute (lesbian) host of Queer Eye For The Straight Girl, is also...drumroll please...Filipino. Learn more about this hard-working mom. Gosh, we seem to be all over the place!
