I am now officially done with the HP7. What that means is I am itching to talk about it with anyone who has already finished the book. I wouldn’t say that this one is the best of the series, but it does have its exciting moments. To celebrate this momentous occasion, I thought I’d post this great video from Potter Puppet Pals. Feel free to watch it more than once. I have.

Disappointment of the year
I don’t want to believe this story… but it is hard when even the Discovery Channel is investigating the accusations. I will wait eagerly to see if Bear is a fraud..
Thanks Sheens for the sad, but hopefully not true story.
Birds of Prey
I think most people would agree with me that poor little Toby wouldn’t survive out in the wild. I have had this conversation with a couple of people and it just boils down to the fact that Toby has too many predators. Laurie even said that she read on a Yorkie forum that other dogs have been snatched up by large birds!! I was skeptical, but realized that Toby weighs about the same as a rabbit and could easily get picked up by a large eagle or hawk…
If you don’t believe me, here is a video that hits the point home. Yes, this was a random post. Sorry.
I am convinced
Dear Michael Moore,
To give you some background… I come from an upper-middle class family who hasn’t really seen the negative aspects of the US health care system. I have always (and continue) to go to my family doctor of 10+ years, Dr. Yeh, for ALL my medical needs. He has been very good to my family and I appreciate everything he has done to keep my family healthy. I have always been covered by some shape or form of medical insurance and have never had to worry about paying off medical bills. I have been lucky and as a result, have never questioned the system I have come to rely on.
After watching your new movie Sicko, I am convinced that the current US health care system is broken and needs to be addressed. Your movie brought up interesting stories as well as gave me some perspective on how other countries have attacked the same problem. I found it very one-sided, but your proof points made sense and are hard to argue against. I still would like to understand the negative aspects of universal health care programs and a better understanding of the impact it would have on my paycheck, but all in all, I am convinced. We should have universal health care; we just need to figure out how to implement it the best way.
After an odd week with a mid-week vacation, time to relax and have fun. Enjoy this new Kanye jam with the not-so-new Daft Punk beat. One of the coolest music videos I have seen…harder, better, faster, stronger.
First the Kwik-E-Mart and now the cool Simpsons avatar creator.. the advertisers for the upcoming Simpson’s Movie are doing a good job. Thanks Sheens and Caro for the tip!!
