I have never read any of the Harry Potter books. For this reason, when the new one came out, it did not affect my life at all ... until I was forced into "the Harry Potter World" by a boy of about 10.
The story you are about to read is true, only the character names have been omitted to protect the innocent that have not yet finished reading the book (and because I don't know any characters from Harry Potter so I have no idea what names this kid said anyway).
I was waiting at the checkout desk at the library, when I heard a voice beside me ...
When I turned to the boy, he was looking away, which made me uncomfortable and uncertain whether or not he was actually speaking to me, so did not acknowledge his "Hello."
BOY: I finished the new Harry Potter book.
DAN: Oh yeah?
BOY: (Nods his head) [Character 1] dies.
DAN: Uh, really?
BOY: Yeah, [Character 2] kills him.
DAN: You know, I've never actually read any of the Harry Potter books.
BOY: You are weird ...
Jug O Juice
Yesterday, after Eddie got off work, he and I took a picnic of Burger King cheeseburgers, and a big ol jug o Tops' Orange Flavored "Drink," down to the beach. It was hilarious. Eddie and I looked like total slobs, sitting on the beach with burger king and synthetic juice, listening to the Indians game on the portable radio we brought down. We then made a half-assed attempt at wading in the Lake and looked totally ridiculous.
Last night I saw a band called the Spits. They were AWESOME. They had costumes (including one Robot costume made out of silver spray-painted cardboard), onstage fireworks, and synthesized robotic noises. They claim their influences to be the Ramones, Devo, and alchohol.
