We here at work got back into the Harry Potter world today with a post DH-story about J.K. Rowling. She apparently took questions during a 90-minute web chat about what she thinks happened to her characters between the end of the story and the epilogue, and here it is:
BTW, we were kind enough to put a spoiler alert in the story so I can't help but do the same thing here:( DH SPOILER ALERTCollapse )
I start screenwriting classes in Sept! We'll see where this goes, huh?
On a completely different note, I managed to flood our basement this weekend by using hooking up a defective water hose to a lawn sprinkler, in the process soaking my copy of Spawn #1. Of course, I also destroyed the carpet and part of the wall, but MY SPAWN #1 is ruined!
Woe is me.

Current Music: "Play Lady Play" Foreplay
It's a slow writing day here today, so I'm going to play too!
Set your iPod to shuffle and use the songs that come up for each part of your movie soundtrack:
Opening Credits: "Barcarolle" Jacques Offenbach
Starting out with classical music, huh? Must be an opening scene of wide fields, expansive forests and rolling hills leading up to a house in the country, with herds of horses galloping about grassy hills and a lazy puppy napping on the porch ... I mean, gotta use classical music for the nature shot, right?
Waking Up: "Limelight" T.I.
Ooo, and I'm famous too! I like this movie already!
Falling in Love: "Mojo Hand" Lightnin' Hopkins
Okay, first bad sign. I'm falling in love with a woman I need to do some voodoo on make sure she says faithful. Hmmmm. But hey, I know voodoo! That's got to be a plus, right? And I got a love spell right here ...
Fight scene: "Through The Storm" Yolanda Adams
Gospel music for the fight scene. Either I'm getting my ass kicked so badly they're having to pray for my survival, or it's one those slow motion scenes where you can see the spit fly out of the mouth as the blows land. On second thought, it just doesn't work, does it?
Breaking up: "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing" Leo Sayer
A happy breakup? It must have been the little woman who was kicking my ass.
Getting back together: "Always And Forever" Heatwave
With her? After that ass-kicking? Wow. But hey, the song says "Always and Forever." Why can't I get rid of her?
Secret Love: "My Man" Billie Holiday
And she had a secret lover, one of those bad boys, on top of being able to kick my ass? Why didn't she just leave? I mean, voodoo isn't real anyway, right?
Life's okay: "This Will Be" Natalie Cole
Ok, I get it. This is one of those "beware of what you ask for" movies. She's stalking me, talking about an everlasting love. I'm going to dump her. If she doesn't get the hint, I'm going to really have to do something nasty to her.
Mental breakdown: "Ain't Got No/ I Got Life (Take 3 )" Nina Simone
Yep, I'm cracking up. She's ruined me. Burned my car, shot my dog, ruined my credit, and now she had me committed. I'm counting all the things that I don't have. Call the guys in white coats. All I got is life. Guess I should be happy with that, but somehow I'm feeling a little crazy.
Driving: "That's What Friends Are For" Dionne Warwick with Elton John, Gladys Knight & Stevie Wonder
Oh, good. Some friends have come to rescue me from this insane asylum. You know, the food here wasn't that bad.
Flashback: "I Am A Man of Constant Sorrow" John Harford
Okay, instrumental music here. That means I'm telling my friends about how horrible the insane asylum was. It's all in black-and-white, and it's horrible. Really? They made me eat Jell-O. Don't people know what's in that stuff? What's that? She visited me in the loony-bin? What's that funky looking doll she's shaking? Why didn't I immediately remember this?
Partying: "Love Me In A Special Way" DeBarge
Oooo, a slow dance at the party. That means things must be looking up for me on the romance front with another woman. "No, my brother. You've got to get your own."
Happy dance: "Body And Soul" Etta James
Hmmm, not really jumping for joy music. Maybe it's a happy slow dance? That's it! The woman I've been pining over the whole movie is now in my arms and singing to me. Yes! I knew it would turn around.
Regretting: "Thank You For The Music" ABBA
That damn woman who kicked my ass and threw me in the insane asylum trashed my piano, damn it! I won't miss her, but she could sing. I'll take that with me as I move into my new life.
Long night alone: "Harlem Shuffle" Bob & Earl
Okay, I'm out purging her from my system with a little boogieing down at the juke joint. I'm a movin' to the left, a movin' to the right, just jamming my old life away.
Death scene: "Pink Cashmere" Prince
Oh, my God. She died. I left her at home while I was out doing the Harlem Shuffle, and my ex came by and something happened. It was that voodoo love spell from the beginning of the movie. It backfired and that's why the ex has been stalking me and making my life a living hell the whole movie. It's all my fault.
End credits: "Chain of Fools" Aretha Franklin
Perfect ending. She's not really dead. She's coming back. She says she'll be with me, forever ....
Man, that turned dark quickly, huh? Got to the end, and only had to change three lines to make it all fit. Yeesh. Gotta lay off the horror books.

I've watched only a couple of episodes, but I don't know if I want to think that I'm her!

I have a good excuse for being late, though, having just suffered through a toothache and an unfortunate goat shooting all during Thanksgiving week (don't ask )...
