Bill: I finished the Harry Potter book.If the father of my children can’t tell me anything about it, then surely no one can. I made the rather foolish decision to read all the Harry Potter books before the new one. Foolish mainly because I started a mere week ago. It’s a bit overly ambitious, but overly ambitious is my middle name which, incidentally, makes filling out forms a bitch. Anyway, I’ve been staying off the Internet and at great personal sacrifice specifically off Jacketflap, which I’ve come to love for its convenient book blog reader.

Me: Great. Hold it, when did you read it?
Bill: I brought it to work and finished it at lunch.

There was another movie I was planning to see next weekend, but for some reason the name has slipped my mind. There’s a dark-haired boy and a girl, and another boy and something about magic...
