It was time again to re-read the Harry Potter series. I had hoped to tackle all seven glorious books in one week but that was more than this muggle swish could handle. However, today I finished Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and I was gobsmacked at how moved I was by the last two chapters. After the horrific happenings at the Triwizard Tournament Harry must tell all that happened. I was in tears several times and so thankful for J.K. Rowling and her splendid storytelling ability. The heart of it. The soul of it. There’s an essence of human love and understanding in there that I seldom come across in books. It’s gratifying. Tonight I start the fifth book as things at Hogwarts and in the wizard world grow ever more sinister.

I‘m enjoying reading this book. But I just don’t understand why publishers don’t hire fact checkers anymore. The author refers to “The Music Man’s Henry Hill.” No, it’s Harold Hill. No one could look that up on IBDB? Plus the words “The Music Man” ought to be italicized. Does nothing matter anymore?
I need to start blogging again. I need to write more. I need to take charge, goddamnit, and say something interesting. Meanwhile, here is a photo of me at one with the rocks. I am grossly fat and I hate the way I look. I have an eating disorder. All I eat for dinner is pizza and red wine. It’s sorta sad but sorta predictable. I want to be more of a person in ways other than physical. As in, oh, you’re not fat, there’s just more of you to love. BULLSHIT. The fat pushes the love away. Blah blah blah freaking blah. But okay, here I have made a blog post. The first in centuries. So maybe that’s a damn start.
I have been working on a Tumblr. blog for a while now and now I’m sharing it with you. It’s just mostly random images that amuse or impress me. Warning: there’s a lot of BLUE material on tumblr and so I take no responsibility for what you should come across should you click on any of the images I’ve reblogged to my tumblr blog. The images are mostly just images without my interference or blather. Enjoy, or don’t, that’s completely up to you. I have made a link over there on the right that takes you there. I know, it’s too large. I know. I’m not a techno-wunderkind. I’m just pissy old swishy me, trying to make my way in this weary world.
