Last weekend Claire was having a wedding shower.
I was celebrating my friend Cameron’s last weekend of un-married life. We thought it would be interesting to contrast them. After all, it’s not often we spend a weekend apart and this one definitely ran quite the gamut of differences.
Nothing like this happened
Anyone who knows Claire knows that she is a, well, ravenous Harry Potter fan. I have always liked Harry Potter, too. Many of our initial conversations were about Harry Potter and -I think- seemed more like an oral exam. It felt in many cases that I was being tested to ensure that I really what I was talking about.
Luckily, it would appear that I passed these tests.
So, today, I’m going to start a different sort of post. I’m going to create a repository of all the funny Harry Potter pictures that I run across on the internet. So Claire can review them later at her leisure. Check back more as I keep adding them.
So, without further ado:
Anyone who has spent any time with Claire knows that she’s a huge Harry Potter fan.
She was in that generation of kids (which I missed by a couple of years) that grew up with these books. Claire’s approach to them is pretty amusing and since I’ve always enjoyed them, too, we watch the movies and read the books and have discussed them pretty in depth quite a bit.
Because of those discussions, I know that Claire’s going to freak out for a little bit when the next movie comes out. I’m getting myself prepared for it and this will not help…
Guys. The pictures and the videos from this article are officially the highlight of my Friday.
Bunnies. Hopping. Over hurdles.
Why would I want a puppy when I can have a hurdle-hopping hare? Beats me, because this is outstanding.
You have to read the whole article. The video at the end basically sums up how every life challenged should be faced, overcome and hopped.
Jamey got in last night, and today I’m making him an Italian dinner from our Italian Cooking Encyclopedia. I was going to poll you all on what I should cook, but then I realized I wouldn’t have enough time to go to the store and make the dish if I waited for the end-of-day results. Plus, I think Jamey will probably just stuff the ballot box and send it out to everyone so he can have exactly what he wants for dinner – regardless of the public choice! Democracy, my foot (at least in this household).
If it’s a success, you know we’ll take pictures and share with you the glory of our Italian food. If not, well, let’s hope other meals turn out decent this weekend.
Happy Friday, folks!
