Everything Bossy Knows About Harry Potter Could Fit On The Head Of A Pin November 22, 2010 He wears those glasses. Bossy thinks maybe there’s a wizard involved.

That about sums up what I know as well!
The Domestic Goddess saysNovember 22, 2010 at 11:01 am
I know a little too much…
Tom saysNovember 22, 2010 at 11:11 am
I too, know a little too much!!! We went to see HP7A Saturday night at the Commodore Theater (Google it) in downtown Portsmouth… I thought the 2.5 hours would drag, but it was great until the awful “Dallas’esque” ending…

Isn’t he a vampire?
jp saysNovember 22, 2010 at 11:41 am
Ya, I don’t get that whole Potter, Eclipse, True Blood stuff AT ALL!
Yet I love to read………

Not used to having a theater full of people when we go to see a movie. Yesterday, first showing, barely got seats together. Good movie. Curious as to where they would stop it. Logical point really.
HP is a classic Brit orphan, but with all kinds of folk tales and lore woven in. Rowling did a great job with the series. By the fourth book length exceeds traditional young adult lit, but they plow through to the end anyway.

I loved the Harry Potter books, but real quidditch teams?

Please consider reading the books some day because I think you would enjoy them…great story. I picked the first one up to take on vacation several years ago and read it in a few hours while we relaxed on a pontoon boat on a chain of lakes in northern Wisconsin. Went out that night and bought the next three books which I read that same week, then had to wait and wait for the fifth book and the sixth and the seventh.
I’m pretty sure you’re not a Muggle; perhaps your invitation to Hogwarts got lost along with mine!

Thanks for the spoiler, SPOILERY!

Plus also that one actor was in a play where he was nekkid with a horse.
Lovelyn saysNovember 22, 2010 at 1:47 pm
Wow! Someone knows even less about Harry Potter than me.
Ami saysNovember 22, 2010 at 2:15 pm
You should rectify that situation, Ms. Bossy.
Lori saysNovember 22, 2010 at 3:26 pm
I do believe he has a British accent as well, but I could be wrong. Maybe it’s was a New Zealand accent? Or was that the king of the rings dude?
Tawny saysNovember 22, 2010 at 3:28 pm
Bossy’s daughter never read the books or watched the movies? Perfect rainy day/cold weather reading.
MidLifeMama saysNovember 22, 2010 at 4:01 pm
OK now. You cannot put Harry Potter in the same category with all the vampire business. No no no. It’s fine if you don’t want to read the books or see the movies, but PLEASE do not lump them together. JUST NOT THE SAME.
Mr Farty saysNovember 22, 2010 at 4:33 pm
Doesn’t he have some sort of zigzag scar on his forehead?
Yep, I’m done.
Cupcake Murphy saysNovember 22, 2010 at 5:47 pm
I’m Potterless as well. The other day I referenced the movie Castaway to my 81 yr old mother and she said “isn’t that about a volleyball?”
David saysNovember 22, 2010 at 5:59 pm
I’ve seen all the movies and suffered a 1.5 hour subway home last Friday night to catch the latest film. Haven’t read the books though. The first two movies are insipid but it gets better, much better, very quickly after that. I think for your purposes they’d be worth a rainy day Netflix movie marathon with the family.
Angela@beggingtheanswer saysNovember 22, 2010 at 6:05 pm
Sigh. I’d happily educate you all about the world of Harry Potter. I’ve convinced 5 people so far to read the books (and they all liked them).
Don’t jump into watching the movies without having read the books. The books (as is often the case) are better than the movies. Especially movies 1 and 2. Those movies suck balls.
Oh dear. I’ve just outed myself as a giant nerd. Sorry if I burst any one’s bubble.

I’ll see your HP lack of knowledge, and top it with a $145.00 amazon order of HP wii and ds games. Then raise you two Pokemon characters and one Pokeball.
This Granny doesn’t even want to know….
NellyFrittata saysNovember 22, 2010 at 6:46 pm
My husband and I have no children plus we are old, but we read all 7 Harry Potter books aloud to each other, taking turns each chapter…but I had to hand over the book when (spoiler alert!) a Very Important Character got killed because I was so choked up. Gotta love Harry Potter!
Mary from California saysNovember 22, 2010 at 10:35 pm
I read the first HP book to find out what all the fuss was about and was bored stiff by it. Also thought the writing was pretty bad. Apparently I am the only person on earth who thinks this.
JaneK saysNovember 22, 2010 at 11:39 pm
Ha! You are too funny! You are such a hip and cool chic so I love that you don’t try to keep up with every little last thing that the media throws out there!
Lizzy saysNovember 23, 2010 at 9:30 am
I won’t hold this against you, Bossy.
Moet saysNovember 23, 2010 at 2:07 pm
I thought that I was the only one…everyone else in fla. is busy going to harry potter world in orlando and i’m not getting it…………
