Yup, I like T-Shirts. (Especially when there’s a cute babe in them.) I had dozens of them when I was in college. Most of them were fairly well warn out by the time Angie showed up in my life. I know she was eying them hoping that I would get rid of them. (Me wear sweaters?  Eeew!  *shudder*) Just because there was a few holes in them.  They weren’t that bad.

Anyway I was poking around Topato and noticed this shirt created by the folks from Sam and Fuzzy: The Neville Would Have Done It In Four Books shirt.

Yup, it’s more Harry Potter stuff.  I’ve blogged about Harry Potter previously.  Who can forget 50 Things NOT To Do At Hogwarts?

Could Neville done it in four books?  I have to wonder.  I’ve always taken the view that while the Harry Potter books were fairly tight, I always wanted to know more about the school and what was happening in the background.  The movies are known for cutting parts out of the books.  If I said that Neville could have done it in four books, that means even more would have been taken out.

Looking back at January

Breakfast was cool.  Had eggs, bacon, and biscuits.  I think I was the only non-church person there so i had to introduce myself a number of times but I didn’t mind.  I walk by the church twice every day when I head over to UNCC.  Didn’t get any pictures as my batteries died with the other breakfast this morning under the bridge.

I finally got a chance to look over the most read posts for January.  I probably should do some sort of Top Post widget in the sidebar. (edit: Done now.)

Harry Potter in the Hood

One of the complaints about the Harry Potter series is how the American versions of the books have been “dumped down” or “localized” for the typical American readers.
 
Gotta admit though that I don’t think the books have been that reduced in quality, even though that have been Americanized. What would happen though if JK’s editors had gone all out and made it for their American audience. Here’s one version:

Harry Potter Controls My Blog

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows bookcoverI noticed this morning that another blog linked to my post about the seventh Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, being available for download. (We think it’s a fake by the way in case you’re seeing this for the first time.)
It’s given me a boost in the stats though. Best day we’ve ever had here:

Download Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows bookcoverI’m tagging this a Harry Potter Fanfiction for a very specific reason. I came across this website promoting a leaked copy of the 7th Harry Potter novel, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I don’t think it’s a legit site because J. K. Rowling said that the last word of the last noval was going to be ‘scar’ and that’s not true for these downloads. I think it’s someone’s fanfiction.
*shrug* But we’ll give it a mention.
edit: Typo fixed.
reedit: Here’s the download links. Please note as per the comment’s, we think it’s fanfiction:

JK Rowling announces Book 7 release date!

Link

JKRowling.com has recently been updated with news that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final book in the series, will be released on July 21st, 2007, one week after the fifth movie hits theaters.

The hardcover will sell for $34.99 with the deluxe edition fetching
$65.00. These high prices could mean the book will be longer than any
of the previous six.

Get ready for the kids to go through withdrawal soon afterwards. There will be no more!
