Dun dun dun--it's here!
OK! It only seems appropriate that I write about HP 7 today. If you're not a Harry Potter geek, I think you still know that the 7th film comes out today (part 1, anyway). I hope it lives up to the hype.
And now, stealing shamelessly from Tahereh Mafi, 5 reasons (each) why it would be cool to date an HP character:
WHY I'D DATE SIRIUS
1) bad boy
2) furry to cuddle with (and a dog takes up less space in a bed)
3) smart ass
4) cool kid, so I'd be cool by virtue of hanging out with him
5) good at hiding
This does not take into account the fact that he's spoiled, which is kind of a turn-off.
WHY I'D DATE LUPIN
1) free time every month while he's werewolfing
2) gentle when he's not a werewolf
3) shabby = low maintenance
4) protection from the big V with his DADA skills
5) cool pets like grindylows
WHY I'D DATE RON
5) big crazy family
WHY I COULDN'T DATE DUMBLEDORE: I'm straight.
WHY I'D NEVER DATE HARRY: eeeew. Too much like a brother.
It's always the books that have my heart--always!--but the movies will do, and it's fun to geek out once in a while. In my house, HP is like comfort food. No other book to read? Get out the HP discs, and let's listen (we're in love with Jim Dale, too). And it doesn't make you fat, like frozen pizza will.
OK! Hot-cha! Off to work so I can stand in line with a non-guilty conscience later. Woo woo!
