A journey of a lifetime comes to an end

I have finished the seventh and final book in the Harry Potter series. And I'm kinda proud of it.

If you plan to read the complete series, you have 2 months to finish it before I start ruining the ending for you. All of August, all of September. That's 61 days. Plenty of time. The first three books will take about 2-3 days each, the fourth through seventh about 6-9 days each. That's anywhere from 30 to 45 days for all seven. Factor in the remaining summer month, and school starting in a few weeks, you've have more than enough time to pound it out.

In honor of today, which would be Harry Potter's 27th birthday, I am posting this link to my comments on the series finale.


Be warned: the link contains plenty of spoilers. If you don't want to know what happens, don't click on the link.

Gotta catch 'em all!!

In the world of Pokémon, do police forces use Pokémon to catch criminals? We've seen groups like Team Rocket use them for evil. And standard police forces use dogs for sniffing for bombs or drugs, tracking missing persons, or attacking targets. Why not use a Pikachu instead of a taser?

And how about firefighters using Water Pokémon to fight fires?

But I'm sure they draw the line at military forces. I don't see Jigglypuff having much success against anti-American forces in the Middle East...

Crawling in the Dark

You know, I would just wish someone would give me a straight answer and tell me if Omar, Jennifer, and Jesse would be coming back this fall.

Male bovine excrement

People are "applauding" Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig for finally deciding to attend Barry Bonds' games while Bonds approaches Hank Aaron's career homerun record.

For those of you who don't follow baseball, here's how this works. Aaron has 755 career home runs. As of this moment, Bonds has 753. Barry Bonds plays for the San Francisco Giants. The Giants are playing in Milwaukee, Wisconsin this weekend. Before becoming the commissioner, Bud Selig owned the Milwaukee Brewers (commissioners are not allowed to own a team).

Bud Selig did not step up to the plate to honor Barry Bonds. The plate came to him. He's not being respectful of the accomplishment, he's being a lazy son of a bitch. Bud was not willing to travel across the country to follow the chase for the record, so he just waited for the chase to come to him.

Hey, while you're at it, why don't you try to contract the Minnesota Twins again. Or cave into another players' strike. A-Rod needs $89 million dollars a year to play third base in New York.

Why would Eric Cartman be convinced that 9/11 is a conspiracy theory? He's anti-Hippie, so he leans towards conservative Republicans. And he's anti-Muslim, claiming them to all be terrorists. Sounds like an ultraconservative nutjob...

Well, never mind...

Eric is a nutjob to begin with.

So, Trojan Condoms has been running a new commercial (maybe the first in a series), advertising their product with the tagline "Evolve."

Now, I'm no expert here, for I am neither a medical professional, nor a biologist, nor intimately familiar with the inner workings of the human female, but I would think that Trojans are counterproductive to the act of evolution...

The best part

There is one thing that I'll miss about my house once we sell it. The frogs/toads that sit in my front lawn at 11:00 at night. They make me as giddy as a schoolgirl. Hee hee!!
